From the Guest Book.

What an excellent place to stay in Quito! Beautiful condo. After enjoying our stay in Banos and a full day visit to the Quilotoa Lake, we stayed for 3 nights in this excellent condo and could not have asked for a better place in a better location. Very safe and secure.

I would recommend this elegant place to anyone without any hesitation.

Thanks!

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.

Aldrovandi purchased this apartment in 2013

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.

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.

PERFECT FOR US

  • 5 of 5
We loved this rental! The place has everything we needed, from all the towels and extra blankets we could use to every single tool in the kitchen. We were 5, but the place is spacious that everybody was confortable. My husband and son enjoyed the heating pool and jacuzzi so much! This place is in a great location to get taxis for a very short ride to mall or restaurant. Also the building is so secure that it's virtually impenetrable for an stranger to get in. I will recommend this place for a family with kids or a group without kids. We will defenitely come back there.

AMAZING LUXURY APARTMENT, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a wonderful stay at this apartment. The apartment was immaculately clean and very well appointed with high end furniture, a large and full kitchen, fast internet, and nice TVs. The location was great and in a very safe and fun location. Easy communication with the owner who also provided a driver for airport pickup and a day tour. Would stay at the apartment for all future stays.

PERFECT ACCOMMODATION FOR A GROUP OF SEVEN

  • 5 of 5
Sergio's apartment was ideal for us--two families consisting of 4 adults and 3 young adults. The 3 bedrooms easily accommodated 6 people while the seventh person slept on a sofa sleeper. The beds were comfortable; the 4 bathrooms more than met our needs; the Kitchen was well equipped and there was plenty of closet space. It was exactly as described.

What struck us most was how responsive Sergio was right from the outset. He answered all the questions we had including some trip advice! His driver Ivan worked out very well for us for the airport transfers as well as for a day trip outside Quito. We highly recommend this apartment and the entire team: Sergio, Carmen and Ivan. Thank you Sergio for making our stay hassle free and enjoyable!

GRACIOUS HOST & QUALITY ACCOMMODATION FOR FAMILIES

GRACIOUS HOST & QUALITY ACCOMMODATION FOR FAMILIES
  • 5 of 5
My family of three along with my sister and brother in-law recently spent nine days in Sergio’s condo. Two separate stays before and after our trip to Galapagos.

The apartment was exactly what we expected and more. The location was excellent for us, it had easy access to restaurants, grocery stores and activities. The amenities; Wi-Fi, laundry and other facilities were clean, functioning and exactly as described by the owner.

We relied on Sergio’s help to coordinate our airport transportation several times during our stay. Even with some flight delays and multiple arrival times at inconvenient hours of the night, both Carmen and Sergio stayed connected and engaged with us to assure that we were taken care of. From the initial inquiry until end of our stays, Sergio has been extremely responsive, and available to answer every question we had.

Everyone we interacted with at this apartment was very gracious, reliable and made us feel very comfortable, safe and welcome. We are more than happy to recommend Sergio’s condominium to all types of families.

Thank you, Sergio for going above and beyond to make our stay in Quito the best it could be!
