About Santiago BANDERAS
I moved from Quito to the US when I was 22 to complete my education and pursue my career as a Graphic Designer. You will love the Apartment as everybody does. It is uniquely modern and is located in the thriving heartbeat of a growing South American cosmopolitan city. It is truly designed with all of the comfort and security of your own home. All while you are literally sitting at the top of the Andes surrounded by the most beautiful views on the planet, in one of the most historic cities in South America, and filled with the magic of the Incan folklore. This is why we love Quito and this is why you will love and enjoy your stay at the apartment.
Santiago BANDERAS purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Santiago BANDERAS chose Quito
Actually Quito chose me. Quito is the city where I grew up and where my family and passion still live. You will immediately feel the same passion that I felt as I did when I was a child growing up enjoying the enchantment of Quito and Ecuador. Ecuador is a country with diverse cultures, incredible history, and a delicate eco-system that will overwhelm you during your visit. The climate in Quito is always mild and Ecuador is known for being a small country with multiple climates depending on the altitude. Quito and Ecuador are centrally located in South America right on the equator. And with the new international airport, numerous flights from all the major carriers arrive and depart daily from around the globe.

This VRBO was perfect for our stay. This beautiful condominium was modern, very clean, safe, and located near great restaurants. Because we had phone problems we were unable to communicate with the management the week before we checked in as was expected. The staff still had everything ready and accommodated our late night arrival. We highly recommend.
Great apartment in convenient location
The apartment was equipped with everything we needed to be comfortable during our stay. The views of Quito and surrounding mountains were spectacular. The location was great for walking to Carolina Park, MegaMaxi, and numerous restaurants and shops. The managers were nice, and quick to respond to any questions we had about our rental. We would definitely stay here again if we needed to stay in Quito.

Well worth the price.
Don't let the price deter you. This is a great property.....1700 square feet of wonderful art and high-tech fixtures with great views and a great location. We had some frustrating issues but they are all correctable. We were there for a wedding and needed to be in touch with locals. We were told we'd be given a cell phone but were not. The landline in the house is blocked from calling cell phones but we didn't know that and we didn't even know the number of the landline. There is not a scrap of information in the apartment to help guests with anything they might want to know. The local manager is some distance away and couldn't be called from the landline. The landline is in the master bedroom as is the WiFi router. WiFi didn't work in the living room nor would the wireless handset of the landline. Both could be easily corrected with an inexpensive router booster and an extension telephone set. We were also frustrated with an extra step they added to the damage deposit process. In making the reservation our credit card was charged with a standard refundable damage deposit as well as an additional charge for a hefty damage insurance policy. Then we had to to give Diego (who did an excellent job with our airport transfer) a significant cash deposit for additional damage protection when we arrived. This is overkill. It also created a logistics problem because we couldn't leave until the apartment was inspected so we could get our cash deposit back. A local friend was taking us to the airport but we couldn't leave until we had completed the rendezvous for the refund. If the owner wants additional damage protection he should put it on the listing and have it paid by credit card at the time of booking.
If the owner corrects these simple things, I'd highly recommend this property. The price looks high compared to the many bargains available in Quito, but it's well worth it.
Mr. Howard and Barbara!
Sorry for the mistakes that you encounter at our apartment. We did everything in our end to help our costumers. I have personally been there and my I phone and the phone of other costumers work just fine with the router that is right now. Sorry you did not know how to operate your cell phone or the blue tooth of your cell phone does not work properly. Yes landline is blocked for international calls or cellphone calls, in Ecuador a call from a landline to a cellphone gets charged for the minute and after several phone calls can be expensive for me to assume extra charges that the client will not pay. Ecuador is not USA where phone calls are free or has a contract. Ecuador has a different system. This a luxury that we have for our clients to make their stay more pleasant. A regular hotel in the USA or other part of the countries will charge you for phone calls. Again I'm sorry you had a bad time in our apartment. Reading the instructions and information that i send you will had eliminated lost of headaches and disappointments. The Key deposit is cleared stated in one of the flyers that I sent you. Thanks again.
