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.
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.
Nieves is a wonderful person. Her home was comfortable,safe and most important to me, close to airport!
I had a fabulous stay at her home and felt welcomed by her family.
It's a excellent neighborhood near shopping centers in Quito and my favorite place to relax and draw 'La Carolina Park'.
I would definitely recommend Nieves home!
Nieves is a great host, always ready to help you and she has wonderful stories to tell. The room is very confortable and it has a great terrace. The house it`s located in a very good place, near main things in Quito.
I higly recomend this place.
I stayed with Nieves for three months between May - Aug 2012 while working on dissertation fieldwork in Quito. I had such a wonderful stay in her home! I cannot recommend this place enough to fellow travelers.
First, and most importantly, it didn't take me long to realize that Nieves is just a wonderful person. She made me feel "at home" as soon as I walked through her door. I enjoyed the opportunity to get to know some of her family while I was in town. And, over the course of three months, we became really good friends! She is very knowledgeable about things to do around Quito, and always goes out of her way to make sure that her guests are enjoying their time there. If you're like me, the people you live with are probably one of your most important considerations, and in that respect, I don't think you can find a better situation than this one.
The location of the house was perfect for me. It's not even a block away from the Ecovia (public transit), just a few blocks to FLACSO (one of the Universities), a few blocks to a very nice gym, and only a short walk to a big park (La Carolina), the mall (El Jardin), and many restaurants.
I stayed in the smaller of the two rooms in this house, but it was perfectly sufficient for me as a single traveler. The double bed is very comfortable, there are big closets/plenty of storage space, and the window and door to the terrace let a nice cross-breeze into the room. In the shared bathroom, the water in the shower is nice and hot. There is fast and reliable wifi in the house and more specifically in this room. Lastly, the house is in a "conjunto" (small gated community of houses) and has its own alarm system. As a result, I always felt very safe living there.
I miss Nieves, Quito, and this beautiful house already! If you're looking for a temporary home in Quito, then I strongly suggest you consider living here.
Nieves es una anfitriona fabulosa, muy atenta y buena persona. La casa está muy bien ubicada y permite llegar rápido a casi cualquier parte y a la vez es tranquila. Una estancia muy agradable, gracias por todo Nieves.
This is a great place to stay! Nieves and Jaime are very welcoming and kind. The room is very comfortable as is the whole house and it is perfectly located in the Northern part of the city, within walking distance of the tourist area and very close to the ecovia. Highly recommended -we agree with the other reviews. Thanks!
