The SpaceWelcome to Ecuador. We recently converted our home into a bed and breakfast. We added two new double rooms downstairs and one double room upstairs and renovated the third floor to accommodate large groups. This particular listing represents the room with a brand new queen bed on the first floor. This location is perfect for those that want to spend a day in Quito or in Otavalo but prefer to retire to a newly renovated, rustic, enchanting and garden-surrounded home with modern eco-friendly attributes such as solar panels and solar water heaters.
Guest AccessYou will have access to the room and private bathroom which includes a small sitting area. Also you have access to the main living room, the garden, the basketball court, and use of the kitchen when it isn't being used to prepare the breakfast or dinner.
Interaction with GuestsWe are a family of four and love to get to know people from all over the world, and yet we understand that a long day in a foreign country can be exhausting and are happy to give you your space. We are happy to speak with you in either Spanish or English. Likely at least 2 of us will be eating breakfast with you (and dinner if you join us for dinner), depending on the day. The NeighborhoodThis location is ideal for those with short stays in Quito who need to get quickly to and from the airport or those with longer stays that appreciate the fresh air, home-cooked meals, b&b style interaction and tranquil garden setting. Staying here will allow you to hit the major tourist sites including old town Quito, Mariscal, Otovalo, Middle of the world, Mindo, Cayambe Volcano and many others and get easily to and from the airport without battling the Quito traffic each morning and evening. Starting in August 2014 we will be located only 20 minutes from the airport.
Getting AroundQuito is a city of taxis, though public busses abound as well. We include in your stay transportation to Carapungo - a transit change point near us, from which it is only $15 taxi ride from all major parts of Quito. Likewise we will provide transport to and from the airport for an additional $30.
We also have connections with tour guides near and far who can help arrange tours of the nearby Otovalo and surrounding sites as well as city-tours of Quito and other regional points of interest. They provide door-to-door service and will pick you up at our b&b and bring you back.
Other Things to NoteEcuador is a beautiful country. It is the most biodiverse country by square mile, has a rich culture that fuses together both indigenous and spanish elements. Quito as the capital city has numerous cultural events, often times for free or low prices.
