About Sergio Eguiguren

Sergio was born and raised in Ecuador and his wife, Nelly is originally from Ponce, Puerto Rico. They met and got married in Southern California and soon after their son, David was born, they moved to Quito. They spent the next few years running a restaurant business and simply enjoying the South American way of life. Shortly after their daughter, Veronica was born they decided it was time to move back to Los Angeles, California where they’ve lived for over 35 years. Ecuador, however, has been and continues to be one of their favorite places to vacation. With each visit, they’ve had the pleasure of spending time with relatives and have had many opportunities to explore this beautiful and distinctive country. It truly is a home away from home for this close-knit family.

Sergio Eguiguren purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sergio Eguiguren chose Quito

While Quito has become a flourishing and thriving commercial city, it remains unique in that it continues to highlight its colonial beauty, culture and traditions while at the same time exhibiting an exciting and contemporary way of life. It’s where the colonial skyline of Old Town Quito and the Andean valley surrounded by volcanic peaks serves as the background of the modern high-rise buildings. It’s the best of both worlds.

What makes this condo unique

They fell in love with this apartment from the moment they stepped foot into it. They decided to invest in this property not only because of its location and wonderful amenities, but because the view of the city capital and the stunning Andean mountains are simply breathtaking, inspiring and calming. There’s really nothing like it.

The apartment itself offers everything a modern traveler might need and the building is perfectly located in a quiet and lovely part of town. And as a bonus, you have access to the gym, the outdoor heated pool and Jacuzzis, and the building has 24 Hour Security which includes building security guard, security cameras throughout the building, and card-controlled entrances.

A perfect place to to stay for a few days or many months.

  • 5 of 5

We are almost half way through our six-month stay in Sergio's apartment and so we thought we would write a review so that there is a current review on the website. The place is fantastic and Sergio and his sister Carmen could not be nicer or more helpful. The location is perfect as Gonzalez Suarez has many shops and restaurants. It is also very convenient to all parts of the city. The description of the apartment is completely accurate. We love the three nice bedrooms and the 3 ½ bathrooms. The living room and dining room are open and beautiful. Our son uses the den often. The kitchen and dinette are well appointed. We love sitting on the deck and looking out over the city. We use the gym every day and the pool and hot tubs are awesome after a day exploring Quito or hiking. As to Sergio and Carmen, they could not have been more helpful to us as we adjusted to living in Quito. They have great recommendations and advice to offer and they are always responsive to us when a question arises. All in all, we could not be happier with the apartment. It is perfect!!! Kurt, Robert, Sam and Mabel

A very nice apartment in a trendy part of Quito!!

  • 5 of 5

The owners Sergio and his sister, Carmen, were very easy to work with and responded promptly to questions. Their apartment is very modern and comfortable in a gated building with security. The apartment is in a trendy part of town and is relatively convenient to sites, but like most big cities, there is lots of traffic around! We enjoyed our stay very much.

Best apartment in Quito!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two children (ages 6 and 2) just returned from our second awesome stay in Sergio's apartment. We just love it and plan to stay here on our future trips to Quito. The apartment has everything you need to feel at home. We especially love the heated pool and hot tubs with the gorgeous views of the city. The kitchen is well equipped, the washer, dryer and dishwasher are all great to have. It has a nice floor plan and is spread out enough, so sleeping/napping children are far enough from the living area. The internet and US phone line make it easy to stay connected. Thank you for opening your home to us again, Sergio. We look forward to our future stays!

Property was immacultely clean. Sergio was very proactive and helpful throughout our vacation

  • 5 of 5

Very clean with great views of the city. Higher end Quito, so the dining options are a bit more $$ but still cheaper than we experience in the US. Sergio is wonderful. He was always available and even popped up to check-in on us as we had a friend with us that was ill.

I hope to come back to Quito and would love to stay here again! Thanks Sergio for everything!
