About the house:
Spanish colonial style family home, with beautiful communal areas that include lounge with working fireplace, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, sun terrace and patio garden with working bbq.
Our house is in a great location! It is one of 6 houses in a safe, gated, condominium, in the upscale residential district of La Paz offering quietness and seclusion but at the same time we are walking distance to La Carolina park, El Jardin and Multicentro shopping malls, to the bars and restaurants of La Mariscal tourist district and trendy restaurants in the Coruña district.
There are excellent public transport links along the nearby Av.6 de Diciembre and local taxis are abundant and cheap. Nearest ecovia (tram) stop (La Paz) is only 200 mts away.
Airbnb does not have an official screening process for members, and though we're sure most members are pretty awesome, it is still the internet! This is our home and we are welcoming strangers into it, so we therefore have a policy to ONLY consider accepting reservations of members who have a "complete" profile with:
1) Some basic information uploaded to their profile (a quick way to add info to your airbnb profile is to link it to your social networking profile) AND
2) At least TWO friend and/or host recommendation (and preferably also a photo).
If you don't yet have host recommendations, please forward an invitation to your friends so they can vouch for you, which will then be posted on your profile (from your home page, click on "Profile" then "References" and forward the link to your contacts so they can leave you recommendations).
Only named guests on booking will be allowed on premises. No visitors at any time.
Upon arrival, guests will need to complete a booking form with personal information and present a photo ID.
Guests are expected to leave all their personal items in their room, not in the common areas. Guests may use the kitchen, but are responsible for their own food and for cleaning up after use. Linens & blankets are provided.
Nieves is an Exceptional Host . She speaks excellent English , Would love to come back and stay for some more time .Its in a great Location close to great cafes and restaurants.
Nieves is great !
My stay with Nieves was wonderful. She was so welcoming, staying up the first night to welcome me when I arrived at 2AM due to a delayed flight. The room was very comfortable, and the terrace was lovely and inviting. Her house is close to the historical center of Quito, Parque La Carolina, and several other interesting downtown areas. I would certainly stay with Nieves again, when I return to Quito.
We are in Quito for 2 weeks for Spanish lessons. We're really happy with the accommodation provided by Nieves. We have a private room with access to a little terrace. The rest of the house is shared, but it's a big home and Nieves gives us lots of space so most of the time it feels like we have the place to ourselves. We've been using the well-equipped kitchen to prepare meals at night. Everything in the house is clean, well-ordered and works properly: the showers, bathroom, hot water, laundry facilities, kitchen, internet, everything. Nieves is super friendly and helpful. Since we're here to learn the language we appreciate her clear and understandable Spanish, but she speaks perfect English so there's never a difficulty in communication. When we first looked on the map we weren't sure how convenient the location would be, but it's a 3-minute walk to the Ecovia stop, a cheap (25 cents), convenient and fast way to get to the historic centre. It's a 3-minute walk in the other direction to a big modern mall with a good supermarket. All in all we can't say enough good things about this accommodation.
Staying with Nieves gave the feeling of safety and comfort. With grace and kindness, she was helpful in every way.
Definitely a home away from home.
This home is beautiful and clean and set in a charming environment. A residential haven in the middle of the city. The location is perfect.
Unfortunately I had to leave after 3 days and I paid for 3 weeks. I was hoping that Nieves would understand that I had an emergency and refund me some of the money (even half would've been nice, I stayed only 15% of the time I booked the place, but she said that she doesn't get the money until the last day of the initial reservation (that's a lie). I wish she was a little more empathic with the hosts, other than that the place was good.
The fact that you had to leave a few days into the reservation, was absolutely your decision and had nothing to do with your stay in my house. We discussed this personally and you said you had undestood that you leaving early meant I would loose those days for any other guest from straying in my house. Refund policies are very clear and if you did not agree to them you shouldn't have booked through airbnb. I never lied to you because I have been having trouble with my communication with airbnb and everything has been delayed for such reason including payments. Just a week ago they fixed this problem.
Finally I thing you would have been more sincere with your opinion when you were here because we could have handled it in a different way rather than you give out such an opinion.
Nieves was a god send, she went out of her way to help me, she took me the the immigration office, took me so I could get a local cell phone and show me where the best place to buy my food, and so much more, the room was very clean and I felt very safe staying here.
Nieves speaks english and was helpful translating for me, she also will help you to get the best prices on taxi and tours. I cant say enough good things about my stay, Thank you Nieves
Nieves' home is warm and welcoming just as her pictures depict. The kitchen is complete with plenty of cooking utensils. One of the best features of this home is the location. It is close to the downtown areas, shopping and public transport. I felt very safe in this small complex of 8 condos. I have had a very comfortable stay here for a month. Between Nieves and her son next door, all of my needs were met with a friendly attitude. It also helped that they were bi-lingual. You will enjoy your stay here.
