About Pablo Alvarez
I grew up in Quito, but left Ecuador when I was a teenager. My studies took me to Germany, Kansas and California. The last fifteen years I made Texas my home, and the property in the pictures will most likely be the home for my retirement years.
Pablo Alvarez purchased this Villa in 1975
Why Pablo Alvarez chose San Antonio de Pichincha
This property was passed down to us as part of our parent's inheritance. The property was initially bought by them in the late seventies, when the valley was still a rural area. In the last forty five years Quito has grown, and the property that once served as a weekend home, has evolved into a great place to host family friends and guests.
What makes this Villa unique
All the wood works are custom made, which gives the place a unique touch! The balcony in the back of the house faces north, looking over where the equator line divides the globe into two hemispheres. I truly enjoyed the view from the kitchen bay window with the Casitagua in the horizon during the sunset. It is a property that enjoys a quiet and relaxed environment with a World Heritage city a few miles away.

This is going to sound like a paid commercial but it is not . . .
This place is amazing! From the spacious floor plan (my extended family of 12 stayed comfortably here) to the beautiful grounds complete with pool, basketball, ping pong and soccer, this was paradise on earth. The owner, Pedro, lives on site and went out of his way to make our stay comfortable, interesting and memorable. This is a bit of a hike from the city life of Quito but well positoned for trips to Mindo, Otavalo, etc. I highly recommend!
Thank you for your kind words, we are very glad you enjoyed our property, and please help us spread the word, there is this little oasis in the Mitad del Mundo with your family and friends!
We would love to have your friends be as adventurous as you and come explore what Ecuador has to offer. Looking forward to have you back, and thanks for your input with the B&B you visited in Galapagos, I really want to help making it affordable to science teachers and educators to have the Galápagos experience!
What a wonderful home for a large family like ours. 9 of us stayed for 12 days and loved it. It is a very comfortabl, well equipped home with everything you need. The pool was nice to have but a little to chilly to enjoy for our stay on March. The hosts and the concierge, Ernesto, were lovely people and so helpful. Pablo and Pedro couldn’t have been more gracious. We had a few issues with the stove and one light in the kitchen that our son was shocked by when he tried screwing in the light bulb that was not working but after that, we just didn’t mess with it! It was awesome having a washer and dryer for our group as well. We highly recommend this home!
It was a beautiful house and amazing service!
It was a beautiful hacienda more beautiful than the pictures! When we got there and Pablo and Ernesto were there to receive us, very nice people. The place is great for the large group, we were 8 adults and 3 children including little ones, it worked out perfect, there was plenty of space and of course the kids loved the playground! Beautiful sights every morning and so quiet as well, very relaxing. The place was very clean and comfortable. The group keeper, Ernesto was awesome! He helped us so much when it came to transportation, getting us a taxi every time we needed one! Totally recommend this hacienda, it exceeds the description, it is very well maintained, so close to the Mitad del Mundo and other attractions nearby, and the costumer service is definitely great! =)
Many thanks for your awesome review! Pedro and Ernesto take pride at making your stay with us a memorable moment in our beloved country. Please come visit us again in the near future and share with your family and friends about this little oasis in the Middle of the World.
Till next time,...
Amazing Stay visiting Family in Quito!
We had an amazing stay at this beautiful house. Ernesto and Pedro were there for our arrival which they made very smooth. We stayed in the house with 6 adults and 5 children. It was spacious and the kids went on hikes (where they found lemon and lime trees and climbed a mountain on the property), they swam in the pool every afternoon, rode their bikes and played all day. The adults BBQ'd, played pool, cards and just had a wonderful time cooking in the beautiful kitchen (Supermarket was a short drive away). We also spent some time in the gym in the morning and had a nice workout. It was near the city so we were able to go several times and our family who lives in Quito came to visit us daily. The new road to the airport made it very quick and easy to access too. We spent New Years in the house and had so much fun barbecuing, and burning the "años viejos" and fireworks at midnight in a large soccer field on the property. Ernesto was always available to assist with any questions and was very accommodating. Pedro and his family who live across the property are wonderful people and our kids had a great time playing with their younger daughter and dog. The beds were super comfortable, lots of pillows. We could of used extra towels for the pool, but we just washed them in the washing machines. There was plenty of hot water and the temperature in the home was always cool. We will would to stay there again next time we visit family in Quito. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.
Thanks for your nice review! We would love to have you visit us again! Hope next time you can enjoy "Las Fiestas de Quito" in December. Maybe you put Galapagos in your to do things next time you visit EC. We loved your group and the New Years Eve celebration was an event your family will sure treasure and remember for many, many years! Thanks for referring us to your family and friends.
Great place especially for larger group. Well kept and well maintained.
The pool is clean; nice and quiet location; very friendly and helpful property managers; everything clean and well kept.
Thanks for your comments, we welcome to have your group visit us again!
We stayed at Finca Analia for 4 nights. Everything was impeccable. The house and the grounds are even more impressive than in the pictures. It was more than enough space for our family of 5 yet it felt cosy and comfortable. It’s a good location for day trips to Quito, Pululahua crater, Mindo, Otavalo, Cayambe, etc (we had a rental car so I can’t speak for other modes of transportation). The beds are super comfortable and despite being relatively close to a very busy street, it was very quiet. The kitchen has everything you need. We had breakfast and dinner every day and appreciated simple things you don’t always get in rental properties (e.g., good quality knives, a blender for making smoothies, serving bowls). Check in and communication with the owner and property manager were quick and easy. Both speak English. There is also a grounds keeper, Ernesto, who will take care of anything you need (setting up the hammocks, the ping pong table, BBQ, etc.). He even washed our car twice before we were even up in the morning! If you don’t speak Spanish, he will connect with the property manager if he needs a translator. We managed with gestures and a few words in Spanish. Would definitely recommend.
Many, many thanks for your kind words for Pedro and Ernesto, and your great review! We take pride at trying our best to make you feel at home and provide you with the support and service to make your vacation memorable experience. Please share your experience with family and friends, we welcome the opportunity to serve you again.
Two miles away from the equator in the Middle of the World!! By the monument the city has developed a complex with a variety of amenities for tourists to enjoy their visit.
