Description

The Space

Beautiful, comfortable, independent restored bedroom /suite, with private bathroom, sunny private corridor/working area; authentic antique furniture, colonial and art-deco. Sunny terrace with a beautiful and interesting view of surrounding architecture and gorgeous mountains.

Ours is a historical, XVI Century house, mostly restored. We are located in the heart of the Colonial Quito, one block from La Ronda Street, half a block from Plaza de Santo Domingo, three blocks from Iglesia de La Compañía, three blocks from Casa del Alabado and Plaza de Santa Clara, Iglesia de la Compañía and Plaza Grande and four blocks from Plaza de San Francisco. Many call us: ¨casa de las Tías,¨ due to our great-aunts` work, generosity towards the surroundings´ community. This place, always was and still is an organic ¨slow house.¨ If you are looking for an authentic space, surrounded by the wonders of Quito´s ¨Centro ¨Histórico¨, this is the right spot.

Some areas of this beautiful 470 year-old house still need to be restored and are periodically being worked on.

Weekly maid service included. Your quarters will be thoroughly cleaned, your towels and bed linens will be nice and fresh.

We, artists, live work and own this house; we share our place with our friendly, polite cats.

Half a block access to public transportation: trole, buses, taxi.

Two blocks from our house, from 7 am to 7 pm, a recently inaugurated Qmandá Park offers some fun alternatives such as:

- "Baño de cajón", literally means, box bath, used as a relaxing treatment.
- Swimming pools
- Gym
- Aerobics, etc.

If interested, we will be glad to help you arrange a visits to some interesting sites as well as one, two or more days within Indian Communities North and South of Quito.
