About Sandra Lanas
I am now happily living in Quito. I speak fluid English, French and Spanish. This apartment (for 5) and a studio (for 2) are my pride and I take responsibility in making our guests to feel right at home. I personally like to attend my guests during their stay. If you need anything, most probably, I will be close by to ensure your well-being. I also work in tourism (for last 5 years) and dental tourism (20 years’ experience) if you have any question or if you want to book a tour I will be very happy to help, so don't hesitate to write or call, I will reply all the mails and calls. Best regards, Sandra
Why Sandra Lanas chose La Granja
I lived in this apartment with my two sons and I loved it every minute. I personally rebuilt and decorate this place along many years; in a way you could say this is my youngest baby. Now, my kids moved to Montreal, so I decide to pack up to a smaller apartment on the second floor and rent this one to visitors of this great city. I have lived in Vancouver and Montreal for several years and it makes me very happy to be able to practice English and French (my passion) with my customers. I love this place, and I do make my best so your stay will be one of your best memories of your visit in Ecuador.
What makes this Apartment unique
The open spaces, the colors and the tranquility you will experience in 'QuitoMyHome' will make worth every minute of your stay. All the appliances and the fully equipped kitchen are all you might need on a trip not to feel away from home. Great Wi-Fi, cable, lots of hot water all day, relaxing areas (not to trip on each other)... you won´t miss anything and hopefully you may want to come back for another visit in the future.

Very nice apartment and incredibly helpful hostess. Sandra went out of her way to accommodate our every request. We would have been lost and struggling without her.
Dear Gail, sorry for the delay in writing, I got mixt up.
First and more important, thank you so much for staying with us. It was a real pleasure to meet you all, what a fun group!!!
It was so nice to travel with you and to be able to cook together some Ecuadorian dishes, everybody graduated with A+!!! I hope you were able to make them at home.
Time has passed and I still miss you all.
Abrazos para todos,
Perfect, very clean, had all we needed to be comfortable. Nicely decorated.
Sandra is the the best! She went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. She is a happy hostess that works hard to make your visit pleasant. She took us on a day tour to the mountains that was a great learning experience and fun day. She speaks English very well. Wish we could have stayed longer. If I ever get to go back to Quito i definitely would stay with Sandra again.
The photos don't really do justice to this home away from home, which is the entire ground floor of an older house, spacious and comfortable and full of character.
The location is also excellent, far enough off the major arteries to be peaceful and quiet, but with taxis easily available and buses and the Trole within walking distance (although a steep uphill on the way home!). The wonderful Santa Clara produce market is also only a 20-minute walk away.
Sandra, the owner, is quite simply an amazing hostess, always responsive, always available with any kind of advice or help, never intrusive, and in fact on one occasion going far over and above what you could reasonably expect of a "landlady". A lovely person!
Dear Mitchell family thanks a lot for your kind words. I do value that you felt very comfortable in our apartment, that's our main goal.
It was very lovely to meet you all and learn a little bit about the beautiful flower arrangements you make. I took pictures of the ones you left for future inspiration!
I am so glad it worked all well at the end for Sarah, I am happy when I can give a hand to help.
I hope you enjoyed your time in Costa Rica.
Looking forward to see you in the near future!!!
very beautiful and comfortable apartment
We are very impressed by the services Sandra provides. She is the host you can only dream about. The property is not only clean, but it is designed for the most comfortable stay of the quests. Our host was always ready to give us a hand; Sandra is very knowledgeable so we were able to get any information we needed from her. Without her help, we wouldn't have enjoyed our visit to Quito as much as we did. I will definitely recommend this property to my friends and relatives.
Dear Klara, thanks a lot for your kind words. The thruth is I enjoyed meeting you both and getting the oportunity to spend some time just talking and laughing. Priceless!!!
I wish you will find the right place for you in Ecuador to call home.
If you need anything please let me know I will be in touch.
So impressed by this authentic Ecuadorian home.
I can't say enough good things about our stay in Sandra's home. This truly is her home and is filled with the personal touches ou would expect in someone's home such as the decorations that all have their own personal story to tell. Sandra was a welcome host who I now consider a dear friend. She was always available to help with any request such as calling a cab and negotiating a price. She even went to the folkloric ballet with us and took us to a pub to listen to Ecuadorian Celtic music. So much fun and such a special memory. This home is in a quiet and safe neighbourhood with taxi's easy to catch outside the door. You can walk to the grocery store, bakery, coffee shop, sushi restaurant all in the neighbourhood. Old town is about a 10 minute drive away by taxi. The home has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen, beautiful dining room/living room and a little tv viewing room between the 2 main bedrooms. It is tastefully decorated and clean and tidy. Sandra is also available to take you on tours if you wish. Great if you don't want to hire someone else to be your tour guide. Her facility with English, Spanish and French is sure to please many visitors. It has been such a pleasure staying in Sandra's apartment and getting to know this lovely woman. You won't be disappointed if you rent this apartment in Quito.
It was so nice to have meet you, Brenda and Robert. Nothing like warm and fun canadians!!! Spending time with you was a true pleasure. I wish we live closer to each other. I have become fan big of your sangria, good find!!!
If you ever come back to Quito, this is your home and a friend missing you already. If I go to Vancouver I will sure visit!!!
Great Apartment, Wonderful Owner!
We just returned from Ecuador with our final two nights in Quito. The apartment was perfect for 4 adults. The décor was authentically South American, with comfortable furnishings. But what made this really special was the owner Sandra. She arranged to have a driver pick us up from the airport and then helped us figure out some fun excursions for our short visit. Sandra even drove us to the grocery store herself and helped us order food deliveries. What a wonderful hostess. If you don't speak Spanish and welcome support, stay here. This is our 3rd trip to Ecuador. Although Quito is a pretty congested and busy city, this apartment is so much better than a hotel. Thanks Sandra for making our stay so comfortable.
Hi Sue, I wish you would have had more time in Quito, it was such a pleasure to meet you all, you are so fun to be around. Hopefully there will be a fourth visit to Ecuador, it will be soreally nice to have you home again!!!
Hugs to you all,
We are located on the north-central part of Metropolitan Quito area, not far from the historical part of the city.
Located at 45 minutes (in taxi, 28$ US) from the new International Airport Mariscal Sucre de Quito in Tababela. We are right on the slopes of volcano Pichincha. We have our own transportation if you prefer to be picked up from the airport for an additional fee.
There are lots of little stores around, like: bakeries, fruit stores, banks, and a 'Supermaxi', a big food-market, a 12 minutes walk. Cooking will never be easier creating with all the fresh local products you can get just around the corner.
Parks and green areas are just at 4 minutes away, for jogging, walking or just for the amazing views. Great for the kids to burn down all that energy!!!
There are gyms and a spa close by. You can also take 'zumba' classes (includes Latin dancing) if that is your gig… I do, and I love it!!!
Transportation is very easy in and out of the city from our location. We are close to main arteries but a few blocks away from smog and noise.
Main attractions like the colonial part of the city are at 15 minutes taxi ride (2,50$ US) or 45 minutes’ walk if you like to do so.
We also organize tours and arrange transportation if needed.
