“Great place for Your Ecuador Base...”
Reviewed June 6, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Stayed here for a month and used this as my base to explore the Andes and the Amazon head waters. I talk about it on my website Snorkelgeek. It's a great deal and the wifi is strong enough for me to run my business back home. I make a lot of internet calls. Sandra's Bro is an oral surgeon and teaches dentistry at the university it worked out well for me to get my teeth cleaned and a cavity filled for less than a hundred bucks. The view is amazing...

Gracias Bernie for staying with us, it was very nice to meet you and Terrie. I am glad you had a great time in Ecuador. You did visit all over!!!
Thanks also for recommending our Dental Services. The American girl you sent us for her wisdom teeth extraction was very thankful for finding you and referring her to us. She is doing great and continuing her trip in Ecuador.
I hope to see you in the near future back in town. Abrazos para los dos!!!

“Perfect Quito apartment and hostess!!”
Reviewed November 4, 2016 for a stay in October 2016
1
person found this review helpful

I stayed 8 days in October at Sandra’s studio apartment. The apartment is very efficient, has all the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay, and is very affordable. It is located in a safe and convenient neighborhood in Quito. Located just steps from public transportation, both taxis and buses. It is a very short walk to a fruit market, convenience store, and pharmacy. A 15 minute walk will take you to a very nice super market and then you can take a $2 taxi ride back to the apartment, there are lots of taxis just outside the super market. A $5 taxi ride will take to La Ronda Street or the historical center of town where there are many shops, restaurants, museums, and cathedrals. You are also a short taxi ride to the La Foch neighborhood with shops, restaurants, and a lively nightlife. If needed Sandra can arrange a taxi for you at a specific time for pick up. The view of Cotopaxi from the apartment is unbelievable.

As a traveler I have stayed in many lodgings where the owner is on-site and Sandra is absolutely the best hostess! When inquiring or booking the property or just needing questions answered Sandra is very responsive. She is very attentive and knowledgeable in all aspects of Ecuadoran life and culture. She has a background in the travel industry and can arrange and/or host daily trips within and outside of Quito. She personally led me on a day tour of downtown historic Quito, a Saturday trip to Octavio and the outdoor market, an afternoon trip to Mitad del Mundo (Middle of the World), and a trip to Quilotoa to hike inside the volcano to the crater lake. She can also help with suggestions if you want to explore on your own by taking a very inexpensive bus ride to Mindo in the cloud forest or to other sites reachable as a day trip. She is fluent in Spanish which makes her a perfect personal guide if you do not speak Spanish or have a limited vocabulary. I highly recommend staying at her studio apartment or her 3 bedroom apartment just below the studio. I loved my stay here and will certainly stay here again when returning to Quito.

David, thank you very much for this wonderful review.

I am so glad you had a good experience visiting Ecuador. It is very important to me to give a hand when needed; sometimes just little a bit of information can make a big difference in a trip.

It was very nice to travel with you, and I am so happy you got along so well when we organized trips with more people. They also had a great time with you, the girls did loved you!

If you ever come back this is home, so please let me know, it will be great to see you again.

“A wonderful hostess can improve and experience”
Reviewed October 31, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted by our hostess who offered many suggestions to expand our experience and improve our stay. She maintain contact with us throughout our stay ensuring everything both at the apartment and on our vacation experience went well. Her suggestions were valuable and helpful.

We can easily recommend this vacation apartment as a very positive experience and an excellent place to stay.

If we were to return to Quito, we would definitely stay here again.

“Super experience”
Reviewed March 7, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

people found this review helpful

Our visit in late February to Quito and its surrounds was deeply satisfying, eye-opening and often breathtaking and our hostess Sandra L. helped make it so. She is one of those rare individuals who are both attentive and sympathetic yet perfectly discreet. Warm, helpful and engaging are a few of the adjectives we can throw her way. On our arrival she informed us that because of a minor glitch in our reservation she was upgrading us to a larger apartment at no extra cost. Three times larger, in fact. Talk about a good first impression! Almost everything around her property is within easy walking distance. And public transportation is so cheap it's almost unreal. When is the last time you've taken a taxi ride for $2? And the buses are even cheaper. Never mind the guy who tried to pick my pocket on the trolleybus. Just be careful. Remember you are in a big city. Having said that, my wife and I always felt safe. And Quito's Old Town is lovely. We spent many an hour there visiting its shops, restaurants and monuments, especially its churches. And if you really want a fantastic experience visit Café Mosaico and watch the lights of the city go on from the terrace as you sip a glass of wine. I'd also recommend the Dios no Muere restaurant just a short walk from the Plaza Grande in Old Town. Or ride the bus through the mountains to Otavalo to take in the world famous outdoor Mercado on a Saturday. It's colorful, teeming and if you're a supershopper like my wife a heaven-sent wonder.

Sandra the manager was very helpful and made us feel comfortable and supported. The view from the room is beautiful of the volcanoes. The room is tiny but adequate , as is the bathroom and kitchen. A lot of steps to walk up. In a neighborhood, so you get away from the noise of the city traffic.

“Perfect place to explore Quito”
Reviewed January 6, 2016 for a stay in October 2015

We spend 5 weeks in Sandra's place and really loved it. All has been said about their hospitality and it's true. I would like to insist about the location. Hey, here you can walk to Sushibi sushi restaurant, for us perhaps the best sushi place we ever eated !!!. Say hello to Junior from his Canadian friends Pierre and Sylvie. On la calle the la Isla, 1 minute away, you can have a great almuerzo (lunch) for 4$ from a graduated cook !! and there is also a family own restaurant just on the next street wich is not to miss for 5$, all taxes and tips inclusive !! ... fruits and vege very nice and typical as you see on photos. At 3-5 minutes away walk the very good San Honore for delicius pastries and coffee. You can take a cab (2-2,50) to Mariscal wich is a great place for artisanal market, many terraces and restaurants..Same thing (2,50$ taxi) to beautiful shopping center Quicentro, Super day at the teleferico where you have to go !! (3$ taxi) ,We did cook on the stove a couple of fituccini with shrimps for the great supermarkets (15 minutes walk). Don't forget to take the membership card for great saving there... On Sandra's advice, used local bus (.80 cents) to Mintad del munda wich was a great experience. We experienced public transportation many times to historic center (25 cents !) and never had a bad situation. We used Sandra's appartement as a campbase to explore other parts of Ecuador such as Banos, Otavalo using regional buses wich was really unexpensive. We also hired some private transportation beetween cities ...from the studio, you can see the Cotopaxi away but we never feel afraid...So if you understand that Ecuador is a different country and you are ready to discover it....this is a good place at a good rate !! Thanks Sandra, thanks for all.

Hi Pierre and Sylvie,

I trully admire the traveling spirit you both have. Never stop! (unless you had an appointment with the dentist). I have told all my guests about the new sushi place, they all loved it. In fact I am going tomorrow and I will say hello to Junior from you, I am sure he is going to be very happy. Maybe this will be the quitenian Cheers where everybody knows your name :)

If you ever come back, please know you are always more than welcomed in our place.
Abrasos,
