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 Ecuador

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.

Beatififul apartmen with all the accommodations. Because it is in downtown there is a lot of nois at night, to be expected.

Otherwise, the service and attention was excellent from Sergio and Carmen.

I would rent it again.

The best apartment in the best neighborhood in Quito.

  • 5 of 5

Now that I have stayed here, I can recommend to anyone that when in Quito this is THE neighborhood in which you want to stay. It is way more quiet and safe than than so many other areas yet close to coffee shops, sandwich places and other eating establishments (try The Market restaurant one block behind the building). There is also access to bank ATM's, Pharmacies, and it is easy to catch a cab to the historical center, teleferico, or to get out of town. Did I mention the apartment is clean, modern, and stocked with anything you need?

As for your business dealings with Sergio, I can endorse him 100%. He is responds quickly to email, and is a great resource for your trip planning and ride services.

You can't go wrong with this choice for a stay in Quito!

  • 5 of 5

100% satisfied is the best way to describe our stay last week in Quito. Sergio (the owner) was responsive, courteous and informative from the moment we expressed interest through our return home. His ability to arrange thoughtful and professional drivers throughout our stay for airport trips and day trips was also a great plus. The superior location and condition of this very upscale rental apartment are as advertised and the views are terrific. We found it easy to access markets, cafe's, ATM's and transportation from this location. This was great value for the price and helped make for a very positive and memorable stay in Quito while we visited our daughter studying abroad there this semester. P.S. We had a family of 1 male (me) and my wife and 4 daughters. Plenty of bathrooms and towels to go around, which can be hard to find in other places! We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Súper clean, has "everythig" you could need to sleep, cook and live there. Beautiful high class building with security guard and located in one of the nicest áreas...súper safe.... Right out side there is a food store, restaurants, pharmacy and taxis go by all the time.

Also the view is grate and at night you will feel at home with a glass of wine looking at the mountains.....

Taxi to the center of the city are 3 to 5 USD...so just go....ah! and having tv, WiFi and phone was a ++

Great Stay in Quito!

  • 5 of 5

I only spent a few nights in Quito, but I very much enjoyed the comforts of this apartment and I appreciated all the great communication and help from the apartment owner, Sergio.

Sergio was super attentive and quick to answer any questions or concerns before and during my stay (thanks for recommending the city bus tour & the Guayasamin museum). Sergio was also kind enough to provide recommendations and information for restaurants and points of interest nearby. Check-in and check-out was easy and Carmen, the lady who checked me in, was incredibly friendly and welcoming.

The building and apartment were both very clean and equipped with everything I needed (even a gym & pool!). Nicely decorated and modern, the building felt safe. It also came with some fantastic views! I recommend this apartment and would definitely stay here again.
