Gerardo and Irene were very helpful. I became very ill and they called a doctor on Christmas Day and he came! They also helped getting my medication. I truly appreciated their help. The accommodation is as pictured and is in a very nice and safe area of Quito. They also agreed to alter my reservation so I could travel to a lower elevation when I recovered well enough. So a big Thank-you:)

**BEWARE** the calender in their Airbnb does not accurately reflect what they can accomodate. I was going to stay longer but they told me I was going to have to go back and forth between 2 places. When I told them I did not want to do that, they actually suggested sharing a bed with another guest that I had become friends with there despite both of us having paid for private rooms. They did not want to cancel my request due to worry of their home not coming up first or second when people searched for homes in Quito and they asked me to cancel knowing that I would be charged if I canceled. Once they knew they would not be getting my business for another week they gave me the cold shoulder. They have pictures showing all the tours they do and the friendly environment they create but it is all a falacy. They do nothing except say hello in the morning and make sure to distance themselves from guests. Maybe they were enthusiastic with with their guests at one time but I would not say this is the case now. The place was okay. Not great. I found another place in a better location with better prices and ammenities near plaza foch. The windows in my room did not have the type of curtains to block the sun bright and early so it was impossible to sleep in. Loud car alarms went off at all hours in the night and day. A car rushing by would be enough to set them off. They claimed to have laundry service but were unable to accomodate, I was told by Geraldo that it was because he did not have transportation to the lavanderia (but there was a washing machine in their house!). The shower room has 2 heads and a big window waist high but does not have a shower curtain to protect view from either another guest when they want to shower, or from the view of neighbors which could very plainly see you. There is also a very sharp edge next to the knob that I cut my finger on when turning the knob. Hot water was very inconsistent. I had to take more cold showers than hot ones. I was told quiet hours were between 2300 and 0700 but that did not stop them from hosting an all-night party with loud music and loud voices to top the loud music well past 2am making it impossible to sleep. All in all I would not stay here again.

Response from Gerardo E Irene:
""BEWARE Joel"". We were thinking a lot in order to write our answer to your “comment”, because we are not sure if “probably” you made a mistake with your comment or may be you were confused with another property... About the house: We are located in a residential area, which doesnt have noise by the night, all our guest have highlighted that point, obviously by the morning we have cars, people walking, the normal noise of the city outside.. We think the problem is you wanted to sleep all the morning instead the night.. because most of the nights you went out and came back by 9am of the next day.. Mariscal is a party area not as you said. About the “parties at home”: we had Irene`s birthday meeting just 1 Saturday (you stayed 7 nights), the other guests also shared that moment with us..and you didnt feel unconfortable because you were “busy” at your room with another lady guest who were at home.. you both were “talking” all the night at your room and at the next morning you both were very “happy” and some day decided to drink whisky outside our home until midnight approx and knocked really strong the door.. (hope the “noise of the night” didnt disturb you). About the cleaning, kitchen: Our house is really clean, because we have a lady who works with us cleaning the rooms, baths, kitchen and all the house, you can check the other guest`s comments about the cleaning, we dont have baths with bad odor (as you said), the kitchen is clean all the time, and we dont understand why you told that if you didnt use the kitchen never... and the “kitchen service” is not included in our airbnb rate..About the laundry: We helped you picking your clothes and taking to the laundry and the same day we gave you back, this is an EXTRA service and when we have time we can help but is not a SERVICE included and you can see on our airbnb website. About our CALENDAR: We have more than 4 years working on airbnb and didnt have problems with our rooms and availabilities.. We can not understand WHY you wanted to extend your stay at home if you really “felt very unconfortable” here, you told us you needed to stay longer but certain day you left the house whithout saying good bye.... We are courteus with ALL the people, it is not true that in the "past we were kind", please take respect and consider your words when you talk, dont LIE. May be the BEWARE is for the nexts properties who want to receive you. “All in all we would not receive you here again” Gerardo & Irene

Gerardo and Irene are amazing. Irene stayed up late and welcomed us to their place. They talked with us about things we were doing and what places to see. They were both very kind and helpful. We loved the view and our room. The beds were comfy and the shower was nice and warm. Carolina Park was amazing and so close. We can't wait to come back and would definitely stay with Gerardo and Irene again. I would recommend taking them up on booking a taxi from the airport if you are flying into Quito.

They were both very kind and welcoming from the very start including setting me up with a cab ride from the airport. Even though my flight arrived late, I was welcomed into there home. Gerardo and Irene gave me a map and pointed out all the place i should see in Quito along with some recommendations for places to eat. Their home is located in La Mariscal district which is a safe if noisy part of Quito, not that anywhere in a city this large is very quiet.

Both Gerald and Irene made us feel at home providing us valuable information on what to do in Quito. The area was safe, and their apartment was always secure with double locks. Great area to walk about during the day and night for late dinners.
