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,


Why Sandra Lanas chose Mariana de Jesus

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.

Spacious home

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: 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!!! Sandra

very beautiful and comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

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.

So impressed by this authentic Ecuadorian home.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Apartment, Wonderful Owner!

  • 5 of 5

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.

28 Days in Ecuador....

  • 5 of 5

My wife, the beautiful Michele and I just retirned back to the US after spwmding October in Ecuador. We rented frpm Sandra in Quito so that we could have a base from which to elore the country. I think a pwrson is always a little cautious when booking online, but we cpuldn't have been mpre pleaswd. The location was great for us and Sandea was a wpnderful hostess turned friwnd. She's a goodq soul and helped us many times bu showing us the ropes! When we return to Quito we will be staying here. The place worked out great for mynwife and I and was a good value. Ypu get the idea...we're huge fans! Stay well Sandra.....Tod and Michele

Warm Inviting apartment in Quito

  • 5 of 5

This place is AWESOME and Sandra is WONDERFUL!!! From our initial contact through our stay in her fabulous apartment Sandra was quick to respond to questions and anything we might need. She is a great ambassador for Ecuador, even offered to drive us to the grocery until we got acclimated to our new surroundings. The listing was exactly as described and perfect for our family. It was clean, well-maintained and in a great location. Sandra has a good eye for decoration and the place really feels like a home away from home. Can not say enough good things about this place. Our daughter lives in Quito and we will definitely stay here for our next visit and will highly recommend it to anyone we know who will be visiting here as well. You have to try the bakery and coffee shop around the corner! Delightfu!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Elizabeth, thanks a lot for your kind review. I am sure my future customers will find it very helpful. It was very inspiring to meet you and your family that got all together from all coins of the States, even from Hawaii, to visit your daughter. I imagine all the planning you went through to make it happen! As I already mentioned it will be a great pleasure to have you and your family back at QuitoMYHome. Abrasos, Sandra

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.
