Beautiful French Suite Tamayo in the famous Mariscal district !

Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Very cosy 1 bedroom suite in the best place of Quito

It is ideally situated in the very heart of Quito near the business center and French Embassy, Casa de la Cultura, the ancient El Ejido Parc, Catholic University, internationals hotels and at a walking distance of the historical center . My brand new suite has a privileged view from the 8 th floor on some of the most beautiful 18th century houses which are a Cultural Patrimony. Very bright, and sunny which provides a warm atmosphere it is stylishly decorated in a french way with a touch of etnic Polynesians ornaments.

You will find not only a full equipped suite but also the cosiness of my home when I come back to Quito twice a year from Tahiti . I have seen to it that it is in a very safe condo, guarded 24h/7 and of course in the quietest neighborhood of the pintoresc Mariscal District. You can get your groceries a few blocks away to the supermarket, buy some handicrafts at the 'Mercado Artesanal' just down the street or visit the museum of the 'Casa de la Cultura' which also have theaters and movies or even have some spanish classes at the 'Cathoic University' at only 2 blocks away . During the day or evening enjoy strolling the Mariscal District plenty of coffees shops, restaurants, bars, discos etc...

At the same time one block away from a main avenue you can catch a taxi , bus or a trolley bus very easily .

Catherine Cantie purchased this condo in 2013

Why Catherine Cantie chose Ecuador

It is a new brand condo very well located in the very heart of the mariscal District but a t the same time with a very quiet surrounding .

What makes this condo unique

The location is fantastic, near everything you will need and above all surrounded by beautifull ancients villas . Enjoy the quietness of the condo, the sun and the beautiful view, as well as the fact that you will enjoy to shower under the sun in the morning !

Guestbook comments from the manager

Left on 11/12/2013 for a stay in October 2013

We really loved this suite and it's location that was the best part for us . We could have either a coffee or lunch or a mojito in the night as the moving part of Mariscal district is just at 2 or 3 blocks from us . At the same time we could enjoy visiting museums or the handicraft market and have a rest in this beautiful El Ejido Park . It was great to enjoy so much Quito as we did and to stay in this very nice and cosy suite . I have been heard it 's completely new and Cathy the owner had just finished to decorate it when she came in September from Tahiti . Very good french taste !! The open space kitchen had everything we need to cook, even a bread machine !

It has been our sweet home for about 3 weeks and we recommend it to anyone who love the charming french decoration .

All my best

The flat is well laid out for either a short or extended stay.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in the flat for slightly more than four months. We found it well maintained, nicely furnished and very comfortable. We had only one problem; the wifi wasn't working when we arrived. One phone call to the owner's agent and it was fixed the same day. The owner, her Quito-based agent, and the entire building staff made us feel very welcome. It is a great place for a visitor who has business in Ecuador or a tourist looking for central base from which to explore Quito and its environs. Its location is ideal as it is close to many fine and varied restaurants, coffee shops and bars. It is a short taxi ride from Quito's Old Town district. I recommend it without reservation and will rent it again when the opportunity arises.

Cozy home away from home

  • 4 of 5

I spent two months at the apartment. It was a great temporary home in Quito. The building is fairly new. The apartment is nicely decorated. The bed and sofas are comfortable. The wi-fi is fast. I was working remotely while I was there and had no trouble doing that at the apartment. I felt safe there, in the building and in the neighborhood.

The location was really convenient. I never found myself wishing I was staying in a different location. Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. There's a nice park a few blocks away. It's a block to a main street where you can catch a taxi or the ecovia bus line, which goes to the old town and also to the the airport bus. The nightlife area of La Mariscal is several blocks away, convenient if you want to go out but far enough that there's no bar traffic or noise. It was pretty quiet there most of the time.

I never met Cathy, the owner, because she was out of the country, but her friend Moana was helpful and friendly. When I arrived she had a map for me with nearest supermarkets marked and some info on things to do in Quito. One day the internet wasn't working, and Moana got the problem resolved quickly. Aside from that I didn't have any problems there. All in all a great stay.

10 times better than a Hotel.

  • 4 of 5

Property was clean and new. Excellent manager service. Friendly people in the buillding. (This is a private residence.) Locals told me the taxi drivers charge a little more in that area because they think they can get it in an upscale area. It is close to everything. Would not hesitate to stay here again in Quito. Art Student Daughter loved the decor of the apartment. Easy checkin and checkout. I stayed one night in a 5 star hotel and would have preferred to spend the whole time in the apartment.
