Wolfgang Boerchers purchased this condo in 2006
Fascinated by the magic of the 'Old Town' where authentic Ecuadorian traditions are still alive and can be experienced in its streets and places, we decided that this is the place we want to live. After a year of extensive search we finally found this treasure. It took us three years to carefully renovate the place. We created eight independent units cautious of not loosing the colonial charm of the property. Art objects in the lush garden and cozy living spaces gives 'Wantara' a special flair.
The place is stunning. Andi and Wolfgang have converted hundred-year-old adobe buildings into comfortable, convenient apartments while preserving as much as possible of the original character. In the centre, the beautiful garden offers a shared green space where you are even invited to make use of the herbs.
The apartments (we were in two) are comfortable, fully equipped, and decorated beautifully. The maid service is excellent, and so is the laundry service: Lucrecia and Maria are very careful to respect your wishes.
Wolfgang made sure to be there to greet us and show us the ropes even though flight times meant we arrived very early, and also seems to take a genuine pleasure in sharing his knowledge of the city so as to ensure you have the best time possible.
In a word, six excellent weeks.
When we visit Quito again we will definitely stay here again. Apptmt Luna had a beautiful view of the city and the mountains, especially at night. Hummingbirds all around. Well equipped apptmnts, comfy bed and cozy fireplace!! Walking distance from Maria statue with wings on top of the hill.
Andi and Wolfgang are wonderful hosts. We felt very welcome. Our renovated Adobe brick suite was very comfortable and well appointed with separate bathroom bedroom and kitchen/ dining area. The suites situated within a walled garden in the old heritage listed section of Quito, very close to La Ronda Ave, so within walking distance to excellent restaurants and the old city centre. Outdoor furniture allows guests to make best use of the beautiful established garden. Humming birds are regular visitors. A barbecue is ready for use. The units are furnished with very tasteful decor in keeping with the history of the site.
We loved our stay and would highly recommend this little piece of paradise in Quito to anyone wanting to stay in a self-catering unit.
We really enjoyed our stay here. It is very nice and the property is beautiful. We stayed for a few days at the end of our Ecuador trip and this was a great way to end it. The property felt very safe as there is good security. The location is good if visiting Old Town Quito. The owners were very friendly and informative and helped us booked rides to and from the airport and a day excursion. We would highly recommend this place if visiting Quito.
What can I say? All the favourable reviews before ours are accurate. This place is a little oasis within the busy historic district of Quito. My children loved their garden and all the space for them to explore. The rooms were lovely suites with all the comforts of home. We especially enjoyed making our rooms cozy in the evening with their little wood burning fireplaces. The owners are welcoming, helpful and yet unobtrusive. We stayed here at the beginning of our three week trip in Ecuador and at the end. It was by far the best place we stayed in the country.
My wife and I enjoyed four days in one of the stylish and attractive, simple studios at Wantara Suites this January. Our panoramic windows provided a view of the Old City and mountains behind it. We regularly took breakfast at the inviting table on our comfortable and private patio, elevated above the attractive gardens of Wantara Suites. The modern and equipped kitchenette served us well for dining both indoors and out. Our queen-sized bed was most comfortable and warm, beneath the elevated and slanted ceiling of stylish beams and whitewashed walls. Splashes of bright color punctuate the walls, enlivening the room even more.
The owner Wolfgang and his wife provide informative and beneficial orientations to living in the Suites and touring Quito and all of Ecuador. They are personable and kind, lived in Ecuador many years, and speak fluent Spanish, English, and German, some French, and who knows what other languages. The rates charged by Wantara Suites are exceptionally reasonable, given their location in the Old City, the size, design, and comfort of the studios, and what one would pay in more commercial facilities.
Wantara Suites are secure and safe in the community. There are small grocery stores very near, and one can easily walk to prominent destinations and transportation hubs in the Old City. Although we stayed only a few days at Wantara, some of our neighbors there resided a month or more in comfort and convenience.
Quito's colonial center is a UNESCO world heritage site. Our condo is located on historical Calle Loja which is mentioned in the City chronicle dating back to the 16th century. Towards the street we conserve impressive, 400 year old adobe walls, the main building dates back to 1904 and was used as suburban residence of a wealthy family.
The beautiful Plaza de Independencia, many churches, museums and calle 'La Ronda', with all its authentic gastronomic offers are just a short walk away.
Quitos eco-bus 'trole' stops right at the corner and/or the cheap taxi service get you to the modern city in 15-20 minutes.
