Beautiful Fully Furnished Apartment in Quito
Beautiful apartment fully furnished in the North of Quito in Ponciano Alto. Safe residential neighborhood, 15 min from everything in Quito, far from traffic and pollution. 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms. Master bedroom has a King size bed, the other …
My wife suffered very badly from altitude sickness for 5 days and Diane was most helpful in driving us around in a fruitless quest to find the only drug that is successful in treating this, , Diamox.
All our inquiries at many Pharmacies were unsuccessful but not for want of trying, we finally used the Canadian Embassy for help and managed to locate the only pharmacy which had any stock left. Note: Let this be a warning, bring with you in case you encounter the same problem.
Apartment was huge, clean and had great views of the mountains, not close to Historical District, but once you get the hang of the Metrobus and Trolebus system it was easy to reach (albeit with packed interiors) cheap, Seniors 12 cents, regular 25 cents.
Grocery store nearby, airport about 15 minutes, short walk to buses.
Well furnished, garden to walk in, enjoyed our stay
Few negatives, shower could do with some maintenance (small leak, loose or missing tiles, and the frying pans could badly do with replacing.
One caveat if using the buses study Google for information, the three main routes through the city are well covered, but the feeder routes have little information.
We rented this apartment for a week as a base for some sightseeing in Quito and to wind down from a week on a boat in the Galapagos. Diana has a FL telephone number and speaks perfect English so it is easy to contact her and discuss your visit with her. She always replies to e-mails promptly.
She and her father picked us up at our hotel downtown at the appointed time and took us to the apartment pointing out a local store for groceries and telling us how to get to the big mall "down the hill" (we walked down and took a cab back). We spent eight hours with her one day visiting the Old Town and going up the teleferiQo. She also took us to one of her family's favorite restaurants where we had a very nice, relaxed meal. She arranged a cab for us to visit La Mitad del Mundo on the equator and drove us to the airport early on the morning of our departure.
The apartment was clean and very spacious for just the two of us; it would be perfect for two or three couples or families. The laundry was a plus as was the good wi-fi and tv (we watched the Super Bowl there!).
3 bedroom home convenient to the airport and out of the hassle of downtown traffic. Diana met us at the airport late at night and drove us to the home located just a few moments away. This cozy home gives one the "feel of a true Ecuadorian" neighborhood as opposed to the tourist locations elsewhere in Quito. The home is very clean and nice linens are available.What a spectacular view to awaken to. These views are present from the living and dining rooms.
Thanks to Diana and her Dad. They were available for anything we needed whether it be a cab or a country tour.
We had never travelled to Ecuador, and wanted to travel about the country and spend time in various areas. Ecuador has so much to offer and Quito is a great place to start! We flew into Quito and spent about 8 days at this apartment. We had 3 teens with us, thus wanted to have a "home base" where we could stay for various day trips within close proximity to Quito.
As we prepared for our trip, Diana was extremely helpful with answering questions as we also did our own research trying to decide where to visit and explore while in this northern part of the country. We arrived quite late at night. Diana had arranged for our pickup at the airport. Although our flight arrived later than intended and it took awhile to get through customs, we were met and greeted by Diana's brother. What a blessing that we did not have to navigate a strange, foreign place so late at night ourselves..
After a short drive we arrived at the apartment. Immediately, we settled in and felt safe and secure in our temporary home. The apartment was spacious and clean. Everything was in working order. We cooked our breakfasts there and ate our other meals while we were out.
There is a mall and large supermarket nearby, about 5 minutes by taxi or 15-20 minutes by foot. We did alot of walking. Nearby is a large outdoor market for fresh produce etc. that we did not get to visit. Ask about this, and I would suggest you take advantage of this shopping opprtunity if you are in the city when they are open (certain days of the week).
It was important that we had a washer and dryer as we tried to pack as light as we could for our 3 week stay in Ecuador. At the end of our week we made sure we had clean things in our suitcases to get us through most of the remainder of our trip.
Our beds were warm and comfortable...complete with native wool (llama?) blankets.
Diana was more than helpful on "showing us the way" by taxi or aiding us as we navigated the local and not-so-local bus system. She became like "family". Diana was warm and welcoming in many ways. We would most definitely stay here again. If you are new to Ecuador or have some "roots" there and need a place to call home...you will feel at home here! We did.
I loved the location of the apartment. It was easy travel to get to places such as El Quinche, Otovalo & Cayambe. Beatifully decorated, I found it handy that it included washer & dryer, I was able to take clean clothes home. I highly recommed this vacation rental. Thank You.
We stayed at this wonderful condo for 5 nights. It was well maintained, clean, relatively quiet and the price was right. The owners lived right next door and were warm, friendly and very helpful. We didn't speak spanish and they didn't speak much english but we managed to communicate. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a positive experience.
We highly recommend this apartment for anyone staying in the Quito area. The three bedroom unit is very spacious, very clean and nicely decorated. It is located in the northern suburbs near the Condado mall and is within a 20 minute ride of historic district, the airport, the Telaferico and the Middle of the World.
The kitchen is stocked with anything that you could need. Wireless internet and cable tv with a wide array of English and Spanish channels is included. The apartment is very secure and has beautiful views of the mountains and a private garden below.
While the apartment was very nice, the best part of our stay was the personal service that we received. The English speaking owner picked us up at the airport when we arrived and dropped us off when it was time to leave. While we were there she called taxis for us and ordered take-out dinner for us one night since out Spanish is very limited. The owner also has a tour business. She took us on an all-day tour of Otavalo and Cotacachi that was the highlight of our trip to Quito.
We have stayed at several VRBO rentals and this is by far our best experience yet.
Diana's apartment in Quito is lovely and a convenient cab ride to old town and the new city. Also buses are convenient.
The best part of staying there: Diana speaks perfect English and has a great knowledge of the history and culture of Quito and of Ecuador. She was easily accessible by cell phone and helped with taxi requests, beauty shop appointments, restaurant recommendations and tours.
The view from the apartment is stunning, overlooking Quito. The apartment was immaculate and Diana even had fresh local coffee beans, milk, bread & eggs stocked!
We stayed there for 12 days. Diana' parents live next door and are also delightful!
I heartily recommend renting this apartment.
