My husband and I stayed in Casita 2 for a couple of nights at the beginning of our vacation in Ecuador and the night before we left. Gerrit always touched base with us every evening and sat with us while we ate breakfast to help us with our plans for the day. He has a favorite taxi driver, who along...

The Tumbaco B&B was really wonderful. The cottages make you feel like you're a bit isolated and independent, yet the owners and staff are there to help you with advice and their lovely morning breakfasts. We stayed at the B&B for 6 days, taking a taxi into Quito almost every other day. The owners know a great couple who are...

My wife and I stayed at B+B Tumbaco for a week. The cottage was attractive and private, the grounds are beautifully landscaped. The Japanese garden is a delight to see. Avocado trees, various fruits and flowers abound. The cascade of jasmine by the front gate is but one of the pleasures. The B+B is a bit off the beaten path,...

Had a great 3 night stay last week. The grounds, cottages and main house are absolutely beautiful. The hosts were extremely helpful with directions, recommendations and calling taxis.
