Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this home for 13 days. It is an amazing home and we were sad to leave it.

I had read the previous review done in January with the long list of likes and dislikes of this home done by that reviewer and to be honest, I was a little bit nervous about the stay. The comments mentioned cock roaches, cold swimming pool, no privacy with doors, security system in home, wifi not reliable, and the list goes on. We did not see any bugs inside the home, we asked to have to pool heated and when it was heated, it was comfortable to swim in (but the kids did not really care if the water was hot or cold, they swam regardless) we liked having the security system in the home. The cameras are not in use while there are renters in the home. And we had great wifi service. The only time it went out was when the earthquake hit Ecuador. But it came back on a few hours later. Bottom line, we did not experience any of the negative issues the previous reviewer had of this home.

This home is well taken care of and the gardens are amazing! The pictures do not do justice for this home. We actually held a wedding reception on the grass of the soccer area and the reception turned out beautiful.

The BBQ area is very nice and the table is plenty big to fit a large family. We used the BBQ a few times. It was great!

The gardner and his family who live on site are wonderful! They were always there to help us with anything we needed. They were constantly cleaning the pool and the grounds of the house. They are so nice and courteous. We really enjoyed talking with them and getting to know them. They are a wonderful family!

The owners of this home were easy to get a hold of while making the reservation and were very easy to talk to with any questions we had. Our deposit was returned back to us with in a few days after leaving this home.

All around, we had a great experience with staying at this home. We would definitely stay again.

Beautiful house but a few important concerns.

  • 4 of 5

This place IS what it looks like: a beautiful mansion like house at an amazing price. But if you're thinking to yourself 'this place is too good to be true', well, it does have some flaws, and you should be prepared for those before your stay. This is a long review, but if you are planning a trip, please read my full review with tips & concerns about the Hillside House on their Facebook page or here: https://www.facebook.com/alliepisarro/posts/10153887305104380:0 . Issues aside, we enjoyed our time very much. :)

Owner's Response: Dear Allie We appreciate your report on our property. Whilst you raised some of the good points as discussed offline your issues raised can be argued by us but it appears to no avail. As discussed earlier you had a chance and did vist the property well in advance and raised none of the issues listed on your facebook site. I beleive that we have learnt from your comments and I equally hope that in the future you will equally pay much more attention to the impact your comments may have on small business such as ours. Further, please note that for us customer satisfaction is the most important aspect of our operation and our efforts are focused on maintaining high customer satisfaction levels as per our previous reviews suggest. Please also note that we have accommodated experienced and mature visitors from USA as well as from Europe along with Ecuadorian turists in the past and hope that we will do so in the future.

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

We rented a couple 4 night blocks, right after (2014) Christmas and right after (2015) New Year’s day, … (went to the Galapagos Islands in between the two 4 night blocks). Our group was comprised of several adult couples and kids with different age ranges. Traveling from a different country I was a little nervous, but upon arrival we were completely relieved finding the property to be pretty much exactly what is described and seen on the pictures on the VRBO website. The property has a house keeper with a great attitude always wanting to assist, … and for us this was great. We had pretty much every day booked with mainly “touristing” events, … and were not able to enjoy the property as much as we would have liked to, … it is a great property, … well maintained, … with the assistance of a house keeper (to heat up the pool, … to start a fire in the large barbeque area, etc.), … so I recommend setting a side at least one day or so to enjoy the property, … plus the view is great, with patios and outside decks at each of the different stories throughout the house. Brochures at the house provided a van and driver as a transportation option, and it worked out great as the driver lives near by the house. If we plan another trip to Quito, we will surely check on the availability of this property.

Phenomenal stay!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at this property was amazing! The house and the grounds are beautiful! Once you do your food shopping there is no need to leave the property as it has all you need to have a good time with family and friends. There is a gardener who resides on the property with his family in a separate house that helps with anything you might need. The pool is cleaned and heated daily and the gardens tended to. The bedrooms/bathrooms are comfortable and stocked with everything you need!

My only recommendation for improvement would be to include separate towels for the pool. Also, although one must understand that the property is in the middle of the mountains and that critters are bound to find their way into the home... There were small mice that found their way into some of the food. However, that is not somethigg that cannot be remedied.

Overall, our stay was pleasant and relaxing and we are absolutely planning on returning!

P.S. The house/property is as depicted in the pictures or better! I was concerned that when we arrived we might find something different... Not at all!! :-)

Map

Car: recommended

Quito- Ecuador has one of South America's most colorful crafts markets that takes place every Saturday in Otavalo, about 70 miles north of Quito. Otavalo weavers are world famous for the beauty of their textiles.

At an altitude of 9.350 feet, Quito is generally considered to be the world's second highest national capital after La Paz, Bolivia. Quito is also South America's oldest capital.

The symbol of Quito is the statue of the winged Virgin of Quito atop El Panecillo ('the bread roll') hill. Especially on a clear day, the views of the city from El Panecillo are spectacular.

At about 16 miles north of Quito is Mitad del Mundo ('middle of the world'), where visitors can straddle a line marking the equator. (Unfortunately the current line is about 328 yards off).
