In other words……………
YOU HAVE TO SEE IT TOO BELIEVE IT!!
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.

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.
The unique benefits of the apartment are: the 24-hour security, the breathtaking views, the spaciousness, modern appliances, exclusive amenities, unique interior design, within walking distance to numerous 5-star restaurants, nearby exclusive shopping malls, walking distance to several parks, easy access to the international airport, and just the perfect central vacation location to visit all of the sites within Quito as well as all of the sites in Ecuador including the Rainforest, the Andes, and the Galapagos Islands.
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.
The apartment was gorgeous, inviting, and warm. And, as needed to ensure a great vacation, the beds were comfy! It really did feel like our home away. Plus, the 24/7 guard service and the key security measures made us feel safe. Any time we needed a cab, we just stepped outside and could flag one down within minutes every time. I would absolutely recommend this place!
We truly enjoyed this apartment in Quito! Everyone was so helpful and easy to work with. I gave a 4 Star rating because we arranged pick up at the airport and they forgot (not a big deal because taxis are easy in Quito) and we felt cheated on our security deposit. Specifically, I felt that because we acknowledged that we broke an item in the apartment we were subject to replacing items that were not broken or stolen by us. I would stay here again, but I encourage you to be diligent. I guess we should take this as a good thing because the owner and property manager take EXTREME care of the property. You won't be disappointed.
On a different note, Quito is a very awesome city and choosing where to stay in the city can be difficult your first time. Just stay here. You can easily get everywhere you need (grocery, restaurants, museums, and bars).
Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful apartment. Loved the proximity to everything. Walking distance to great restaurants, shops and easy access to taxis. Loved to get back from the farms everyday and to lounge in your living room area soaking in the spectacular views. I will surely love to use it every time I am back in town!

Better than advertised. The views were outstanding. Apartment had everything you needed and more. Always felt safe and secure with the doorman at front controlling access. Good restaurants nearby and a supermarket a short walk away. Taxis are plentiful and very cheap. Enjoyed the cool evenings on the terrace sipping wine and watching the sunset. This is MY choice for a return visit!
