Wolfgang Boerchers purchased this Studio in 2006
Why Wolfgang Boerchers chose Quito
Fascinated by the magic of the 'Old Town' where authentic Ecuadorian traditions are still alive and can be experienced in its streets and places, we decided that this is where we want to live. After a year of extensive search we finally found this treasure. It took us three years to carefully renovate the property. Within the 15.000 sqft of the old historical villa with its gardens we created eight independent units cautious of not loosing the colonial charm but adding all the contemporary comforts. Art objects in the lush garden and cozy living spaces gives 'Wantara' a very special flair. A breeze from the Panecillo hill provides fresh mountain air and you sit outside, surrounded by flowers and enjoy the sunny Ecuadorian climate.

Great apartment near historic old town Quito
This apartment is great for stay near historic Quito. It is about a 10 minute walk to the main sites, and about a 5 minute walk from La Ronda. Well maintained, clean, and comfortable!
Wonderful stay in a beautiful studio
Everything was perfect. Wolfgang is a wonderful host. He kept in touch from the beginning and answered all questions we had. He arranged for his driver, Marcelo, to pick us up at the airport and had a nice breakfast for our first morning. Marcelo gave us a good orientation to the nearby places and also took us to Otavalo later in the week. The studio was perfect for my husband an I and the gardens are beautiful and peaceful. Location was excellent. 10 minutes walk to the main plaza (at a very slow pace) and centro historico. We felt very safe in the area but took taxis after dark. The appartment had everything you may need. They come and clean the appartment twice a week. They also can do laundry for a small extra charge. We stayed for 4 days and enjoyed every minute of it. Can't tecommend it enough! Beautiful views, amazing and peaceful gardens and studio.
Lovely home base in Quito
The studio was very comfortable with everything I needed. The gardens are beautiful! Owners & staff are very friendly and helpful. Comfortable walking distance to Parque Grande. Definitely recommend.
Excellent! A very special place.
Wantara is conveniently located near the historic center of Quito, yet, it feels like a world away. It is a peaceful sanctuary that feels more like living in a botanical garden than in a large city. Each unit has a patio to relax and enjoy the greenery. The unit called Mariposa was clean, comfortable and had all the essentials, to include: Plenty of hot water in the shower, a quaint kitchen area and a seating area with lovely views of the mountains. The owners and staff were attentive and very helpful. Everything was perfect!
Lush and very clean atmosphere
We had a wonderful stay at Mariposa. We arrived late and the owner arranged for Marcello to pick us up at the airport. It was super helpful for us. There was a yummy breakfast plate awaiting us in the fridge for the morning. There was also coffee and fresh water for our use while there. Both Marcello and Wolfgang helped us with where to go while in Quito. The room was perfect and had everything we needed. I would highly recommend this for your stay! We loved it!!
Quito's colonial center is a UNESCO world heritage site. Our condo is located on historical Calle Loja which is mentioned in the City chronicle dating back to the 16th century. Towards the street we conserve impressive, 400 year old adobe walls, the main building dates back to 1904 and was used as suburban residence of a wealthy family.
The beautiful Plaza de Independencia, many churches, museums and calle 'La Ronda', with all its authentic gastronomic offers are just a short walk away.
Quitos eco-bus 'trole' stops right at the corner and/or the cheap taxi service get you to the modern city in 15-20 minutes.
