About Sergio Eguiguren

I am originally from Ecuador and my wife is from Puerto Rico. We met in Southern California where we have lived for over 40 years. We raised our son and daughter in the United States and we are now entering our retirement years and look forward to enjoying life to its fullest and exploring the globe.

Sergio Eguiguren purchased this condo in 2006

Why Sergio Eguiguren chose Quito

Although we love to travel to different parts of the world, Quito has always been one of our favorite spots to visit as we consider it to be extremely unique, relaxing and beautiful. We also like to go there often to visit family which was another reason for us to buy a vacation home. Quito's year-round mild weather, rich colonial history and dramatic mountain setting makes it a desirable place for us to visit. Our penthouse rental is cozy, safe and has breathtaking views of the Pichincha volcano and the city. In addition to this, its location is central to everything a tourist might want or need.

What makes this condo unique

Location! This penthouse is close to everything: fine restaurants, shopping centers, parks, museums, theaters and cinemas, pubs, artisans markets, profesional soccer stadium, etc.

Spacious: 1840 square feet of living space plus about 635 square feet of your own private terrace.

Magnificent views of mountain and city from inside of the apartment.

Peace of mind: private security guards 24/7 and your own underground parking space.

A home away from home with everything in it.: A fully equipped kitchen with new refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, conventional as well as microwave ovens, etc.

Internet access with WiFi connection.

Washer and Dryer in the apartment..

Three hair dryers.

Safe for your valuables.

Trustworthy Housekeeper Available upon request.

A fourth small bedroom with a twin bed and its own private three-quarter bathroom if needed for an seventh person. There is also a sofa bed in the living room to accommodate an eight person.

We are also happy to provide you with tourist information and recommendations.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Estimados Sr sergio y Sra carmen: Gracias por la excelente atencion prestada. Nuestra estadia en la ciudad de quito fue espectacular al igual que nuestra estadía en el apartamento. La calidez, el confort, la vista panoramica de la ciudad y lo completo del mismo nos hicieron sentir estar mejor que en un hotel 5 estrellas. Sin duda alguna nuestro comentario es que si regresamos a quito los contactaremos para la contratacion del apartamento nuevamente. Muchas Gracias,

Enzo y Familia.

Outstanding rental!!

  • 5 of 5

Sergio's condo is absolutely beautiful! Decorated impeccably and filled with all the necessities. The view of the city is spectacular and it's location is perfect. Near all the major sites, shopping and the park, La Carolina. Sergio and his sister Carmen (your contact in Quito) were very attentive to any questions, replying quickly and thoroughly.

I would highly recommend this rental and plan to return to it in the future.

Very nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

We had a memorable and enjoyable visit. The apartment is convenient located to lots of parts of Quito and easy access to highways leading out of Quito. The building is quite solid which we can testified to since we were there during the earthquake and nothing happened to us or it. One thought about the apartment is that it is located in a city and does suffer from city noises.

Owner's Response: Hi Sara, Thanks for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at my penthouse. As with any city apartment there is little noise now and then but its proximity to just about anywhere in town more than offsets said minor inconvenience. Best regards, Sergio

Great Stay in Quito

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the apartment. Sergio was very helpful right from initial contact. The view of Pichincha from the room is fantastic. The driver who Sergio arranged, Ivan, was great. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He was more than a driver for us, a translator and a guide. Only suggestion to Sergio is it will be nice to have a TV in the living room so that all in the group can watch a show or movie together.

¡Excelente!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the apartment in Quito was great. The apartment is spacious and has a wonderful view. Everything was clean and modern. The building was in a safe and convenient neighborhood. Sergio was quick to answer all of my questions and concerns prior to our trip and Carmen was always readily available and a great resource during our stay. Also, the transportation company you recommended was fantastic. Angel, our driver and now friend, was awesome. He was very well informed, punctual and patient with us. Our trip would not have been such a success if all of these factors had not come together. We highly recommend the use of the apartment during your stay at Quito. Taxis are easily available but Angel and his transportation service are worth the extra investment.
