Quito Apartment to rent

Our own apartment in Quito is available to rent on a short term basis. The apartment is situated in a small block of eight similar apartments, which is located near the top of the steep winding road leading down to the historic village of Guapulo. It is located on the lower ground floor, and the natural lie of the hill means that both the living room and bedroom enjoy panoramic views to the east over Guapulo and the valley beyond. On a clear day you can see the massive volcano Cayambe on the horizon.

The sunrise from the living room and bedroom can be spectacular. This is a great place to recharge your batteries before moving on in your tour of South America, or perhaps to spend a couple of weeks on an intensive Spanish language course.
Quito apartment -bedroom
The apartment has a living room, kitchen with breakfast bar, laundry, toilet and a double bedroom with shower room en suite. Outside there is a parking space, and the building has its own security guard. The flat accommodates two in the double bedroom, although it is possible to sleep another two on the sofa bed in the living room.

Quito Apartment Plan

The flat is well equipped -the kitchen has a modern fridge/freezer, gas cooker, electric grill, and pretty well most things you might need to create a dinner party. Next to the kitchen, the laundry has a new top loading washing machine, drying line, iron and ironing board, and vacuum cleaner. In the living room there is the settee and two comfortable swivel chairs, plus a dining area with table and chairs for up to six people. The bedroom has cable TV, and extensive wardrobe space.

"We got back to the states just last Wednesday night. Wanted to let you know we had a great time in Ecuador and enjoyed the apartment tremendously. The little store at the bottom of the hill was a great resource and the views were wonderful."

"thank you we had a lovely time in Ecuador - the apt in Guapulo is lovely and we thoroughly enjoyed staying there, particularly the views! Could have stayed another month easily! Thank you to you and also to Ruthy for being flexible and enabling us to stay a few more days following our tour around the country."
