Wolfgang Boerchers purchased this Apartment 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. The design of the areas gives you the chance to interact with the other people in our condo, or to stay private. You can use an ample green area as well as a pergola with hammocks and a BBQ.

Great spot. Close to old town. Great owners. Beautiful and peaceful.
Felt Just Like Home
What a lovely apartment. We felt very much at home here and could not have picked a better place to stay. How convenient to be met at the airport and transported directly to the apartment. Waking in the morning to have everything there for our breakfast worked out great. The cool evenings made for a perfect opportunity for a nice fire where we enjoyed drinks and planned our activities for the next day. Very convenient location for the historic district. Would have loved to stay longer.
This was a oasis in the heart of the beautiful historic district of Quito. Short and easy walk to town, shops and food. We all felt very safe and secure in the charming courtyard collection of private residences. Would return or give this suggestion to my best friends. Thank you Andi and Wolfgang for all you did to make our stay easy and enjoyable!
Beautiful place in old town Quito

People very helpful in guiding us around Quito and surrounding areas
Bonne réception. Tout est très jolie et propre.Tranquille et non bruyant le soir. Cuisine complète et bien équipés.. Bien localisé pour visiter le vieux Quito.
Perfect spot for experiencing Quito and its surroundings
A group of us rented all but one of the units at Wantara for a recent work trip to Quito. It was perfect in every way. The spaces are beautiful. The cleaning staff keeps the units very clean. And, if you want to go on a unforgettable journey to any of the areas surrounding Quito, I highly recommend using one of the two tour guides/drivers associated with this property, Thomas and Marcelo. Our group became quite attached to them and they took small groups to different sites throughout the week (Otavalo, the cloud forest near Mindo, and to Cotopaxi and the surrounding area).
This is a very special place...one we will never forget.
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 gets you to the modern city in 15-20 minutes.
