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.

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.

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.

Wonderful stay and great host!

  • 5 of 5

From the location to the help from Sergio, this property made for an amazing stay for me and 7 friends. Large and spacious, I didn't have to worry about feeling crowded or cramped. Well-stocked with water and fresh fruit when we arrived, Sergio arranged for his niece to greet us and walk-through the condo at the wee hours of the morning. The property is within walking distance of lots of restaurants and shops. Sergio was beyond helpful in helping to arrange drivers and offering suggestions about my itinerary. Wi-Fi, an internet phone to make calls to the US, secured entrance with a 24-hour security -- great extras that I didn't realize came with the property when I booked. Sergio was responsive before and during my trip and checked on me at different times during the trip, which I really appreciated. I highly recommend staying at this property!

This is THE best place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious, comfortable, clean and very safe apartment in a great location! The wrap-around deck is perfect for city viewing and sunning. The kitchen is modern and large so that any food preparation is easy. The new washing machine and dryer are a bonus.

There is a free phone for calling back to the USA which was quite nice. We were greeted daily by the security guard who met us at the taxi with an umbrella when it was raining.

The owner was so helpful and quite responsive. He arranged a driver to pick us up from the airport. The next several days we used the same English speaking driver to take us on tours around the area.

My companion and I highly recommend this vacation rental. It was exactly as described and just perfect for us!

Comfortable, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We were a family group of 7, with 5 adults and 2 grandchildren, and spent 4 nights here. The owners Sergio and Carmen couldn't have been more responsive and helpful. There is free WiFi, which was important for the kids. TVs in the bedrooms, but not in the Living Room. Everything is clean and modern like in the pictures. Big dining table and lots of seating in the living room, great for hanging out together between expeditions. Super outdoor patio with great view overlooking the city from the 9th floor. We kept the windows open at night to keep cool, which unfortunately made it a little noisy because of the vehicular activity in the streets below. Walking distance to groceries and some restaurants. Also we walked to the bus stop for the City Tour buses, "hop-on, hop-off", which we recommend. Also a HUGE beautiful park a few blocks away. We would definitely stay here again.

Very safe, clean and welcoming apartment in Quito city area

  • 5 of 5

Our two families, total 9 people stayed in this apartment in last week. This was the first time we travel to Ecuador, and we don't understand any Spanish. We also travel with young kids and senior people. The top important factor is the safety. This apartment is totally beyond our expectation. We arrived in the late night after 2am. The private driver arranged by the owner Sergio was already waiting for us. The apartment is in a very quiet one way road, close to a main road, so it is convenient but not very noisy. It is also a very short walk to the nearby supermarket.The building has 24 hours of security guard who is also very friendly. The apartment is equipped with everything we need in the kitchen and decorated with drawings and pictures to provide a very welcoming environment. The owner Sergio is also very helpful and patient to address all questions we had in this country and city. The other surprise is that the apartment has free phone call to local Quito number and also USA phone numbers, which made our stay in Quito even easier. Overall, we are very satisfied with the apartment and the owner. If we visit Quito again, we will choose this apartment again for our stay there.

Stunning Views of Quito and Mountains!

  • 5 of 5

Sergio was the most wonderful host for this family vacation to Ecuador. The apartment was stocked with groceries we requested (for a very small fee plus the cost of food), so we awoke to coffee and a homemade breakfast. Such a great start to this trip. The location is very convenient to New Town sights, and we took a cab to the Old Town section to see the beautiful historic architecture. This apartment was well-equipped with everything we could possibly need, and we thoroughly enjoyed watching the soccer matches across the street through the huge plate glass windows in the dining area. We also loved viewing the sun set over the mountains every evening from the patio. Sergio even coordinated all our day-trip excursions with friendly, knowledgeable, local tour guides. I would highly recommend this apartment for families.

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!
