About Sergio Eguiguren

I am originally from Ecuador and my wife is from Puerto Rico. We met in Southern California where we have lived for over 40 years. We raised our son and daughter in the United States and we are now entering our retirement years and look forward to enjoying life to its fullest and exploring the globe.

Sergio Eguiguren purchased this condo in 2006

Why Sergio Eguiguren chose Quito

Although we love to travel to different parts of the world, Quito has always been one of our favorite spots to visit as we consider it to be extremely unique, relaxing and beautiful. We also like to go there often to visit family which was another reason for us to buy a vacation home. Quito's year-round mild weather, rich colonial history and dramatic mountain setting makes it a desirable place for us to visit. Our penthouse rental is cozy, safe and has breathtaking views of the Pichincha volcano and the city. In addition to this, its location is central to everything a tourist might want or need.

What makes this condo unique

Location! This penthouse is close to everything: fine restaurants, shopping centers, parks, museums, theaters and cinemas, pubs, artisans markets, profesional soccer stadium, etc.

Spacious: 1840 square feet of living space plus about 635 square feet of your own private terrace.

Magnificent views of mountain and city from inside of the apartment.

Peace of mind: private security guards 24/7 and your own underground parking space.

A home away from home with everything in it.: A fully equipped kitchen with new refrigerator, dishwasher, stove, conventional as well as microwave ovens, etc.

Internet access with WiFi connection.

Washer and Dryer in the apartment..

Three hair dryers.

Safe for your valuables.

Trustworthy Housekeeper Available upon request.

A fourth small bedroom with a twin bed and its own private three-quarter bathroom if needed for an seventh person. There is also a sofa bed in the living room to accommodate an eight person.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Estimados Sr sergio y Sra carmen: Gracias por la excelente atencion prestada. Nuestra estadia en la ciudad de quito fue espectacular al igual que nuestra estadía en el apartamento. La calidez, el confort, la vista panoramica de la ciudad y lo completo del mismo nos hicieron sentir estar mejor que en un hotel 5 estrellas. Sin duda alguna nuestro comentario es que si regresamos a quito los contactaremos para la contratacion del apartamento nuevamente. Muchas Gracias,

Enzo y Familia.

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property this July and it was truly the most comfortable, relaxing part of our trip. We toured Ecuador for two weeks and Sergio the owner set up airport transfer for us. His condo has amazing views of the Quito and on a clear day you are able to see MT. Cotopaxi which is an active volcano and truly breathe taking. Taxi cabs are close by so moving around the city is effortlessly and the security guards on property are extremely helpful. There are various restaurants close by that allow for quick walks in the morning to get a good cup of coffee.

The beds were soft and the condo was extremely clean. Since its located at the high up in the building it allows for a beautiful spacious terrace that allow for fresh air to circulate throughout the unit. There is a washer and dryer in the unit which was helpful since we had already been backpacking for a week before. I highly recommend this property to anyone traveling to Quito for its convince, comfort, and location. The owner was helpful and answered a lot of questions we had about Quito!

We are planning on going back next year to hike Cotopaxi and there is no doubt my entire group will stay here again!

Our first time to Quito, Ecuador was amazing thanks to Sergio's condo. He was most accommodating to our family of 6. It is exactly as described as VRBO, but so much more!!! It is close to eating places, beauty shop, grocery markets and you could even walk to McDonalds and Burger King if you so desire!! We didn't go there because we wanted to try the Ecuadorian was amazing. Was so nice to come home to the condo after a day of sightseeing and know you have everything you could possible need. If we ever make it back to Quito, we will definitely call Sergio to see if his condo is available.

It's all about the view!

  • 5 of 5

Sergio's condo was exactly the way it was described on VRBO......and more! The condo was perfect for our family of 8 (5 adults and 3 kids 17, 15 and 8) and provided all the comforts of home. Comfortable beds, large modern kitchen, washer and dryer IN the condo, and TVs in the bedroom. But the best feature was.....the view. Every morning you'd walk into the dining room and look out the picture window and see the mountains, Pinchincha, and the entire city. We even saw fireworks one night from the balcony. The neighborhood is safe and there are lots of restaurants and a SuperMaxi within close walking distance. It was a pleasure working with Sergio and we appreciate all the help with transportation and tours. Angel, Ivan, Guillermo and Marco were great tour guides and we were especially grateful for all the special treatment we received. We're definitely planning to return to Quito and Belle Horizonte ! Thank you Sergio for sharing your beautiful condo!

Lovely, well-maintained penthouse

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 8 stayed in this penthouse for 2 nights. It was a good accommodation for us, and for dinner one evening, the "boys" walked to the café around the corner and brought burgers back. The location was good for a walk to the main park. I did not rate it a 5 only because of the noisy streets.

Owner's Response: Dear Jan, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at this great penthouse. As with any city, there is now and then some street noise. Soon we'll be taking steps to reduce it as much as possible. Best regards, Sergio

Great location and hosts

  • 5 of 5

Everything from initial contact with Sergio to seamless check out with Carmen helped make our stay in Quito excellent. Everything worked and was clean. Assistance with airport pick up, drop off and any tours we needed helped in making this rental the "only way to see Quito". Gracias Sergio y Carmen!!!

Outstanding rental!!

  • 5 of 5

Sergio's condo is absolutely beautiful! Decorated impeccably and filled with all the necessities. The view of the city is spectacular and it's location is perfect. Near all the major sites, shopping and the park, La Carolina. Sergio and his sister Carmen (your contact in Quito) were very attentive to any questions, replying quickly and thoroughly.

I would highly recommend this rental and plan to return to it in the future.
