Chris has a wonderful apartment in a great neighborhood. Everyone in the building made us feel welcome! The space is perfect and made our stay in Quito so nice. The bed has a very nice firm mattress which is much appreciated after a long day of touring. The windows provide beautiful views of the city. We were greeted at the airport upon our arrival which was so nice of Chris to arrange. We will definetely stay again!
If you are looking to stay in an apartment in Quito, look no further! And if this isn't the right apartment for any reason, the wrong location, etc., Cris owns many other properties around Quito and you should definitely ask her about them. She and her husband Felipe were amazing and I would stay anywhere that they are the owners. We stayed for 9 days in April 2014, minus a few days that we left town. From the start, Cris answered my many questions through email. She offered to send a car to the airport to get us at 10:30 p.m. (it turned out to be Felipe!), and to arrange for a car to take us back. She called to check in during the week and offered to send a cleaning service if needed. She genuinely sounded happy when I called her with questions! She also offered ideas for different tours that she could arrange if interested. On our last day, she went way above and beyond. We went to Cotopaxi for most of the day but because our plane didn't leave until midnight, and even though we were supposed to check out by noon, Cris arranged for us to be able to keep our things in the apartment, and to return there so that we had a place to stay until we had to leave. This was utterly amazing and appreciated very much. When there was a small, everyday kind of problem at the apartment (too small to even discuss) they responded almost immediately. Cris and Felipe were extremely kind, warm, friendly and completely trustworthy.
The apartment itself was great. It was the perfect amount of space for three of us, and could have been comfortable for one more. Speaking of comfort, the beds and pillows were fantastic. The shower was nice and there was plenty of hot water. The apartment was very clean which is incredibly important to me, the view was beautiful, and having a kitchen and washer/dryer were extremely helpful. The location was perfect - there is a mall and grocery store across the street for easy access to any supplies, and it was easy to go places in either direction of the apartment. Catching a cab from there was also very easy and inexpensive.
You should definitely stay here!!!
The apartment was very nice and clean. Great views of the mountains to the west. Easy to get around with walking distance to all three of the rapid bus lines, as well as plenty of taxis. Cris arranged for her brother, Jorge, for airport transportation and was all around a very good and helpful host.
We recently stayed 3 weeks in one of Cristina's and Felipe's apartments close to Parque Carolina. It was located in an area that was easy to get around and close to shopping, services and restaurants. The apartment was very comfortable and Cris and Felipe were very responsive to any questions or issues that we had. They were friendly and gracious hosts. We would stay with them again.
Cristina and her husband Felipe were friendly, jovial and went out of their way to help my wife and I in Quito. Felipe actually made two treks to the airport (quite the distance) to first pick up my wife and then, two days later, to pick me up. They were very helpful and the unit is great! Very close to Mariscal and Parque Carolina. Would absolutely rent from them again when in Quito!
I arrived very late (around 1 am) to the apartment and Cris and her husband were waiting for me! They were absolutely wonderful - very friendly and fun. The apartment is very safe and a great location next to a beautiful park! There are several restaurants near by and fantastic views of the city. Would highly recommend staying in any place of Cris!
Felipe & Cristina were amazing hosts - I seriously can't imagine how it could have been any better and accommodating. They were helpful in every way from the moment I got into Quito until the time I left. Literally.
The apartment itself is very spacious, has an AMAZING view, from the living room and both bedrooms. It really is even better and nicer than the pictures indicate!
I haven't even mentioned location. It's walking distance to the nicest mall in Quito, a movie theater, and La Carolina Park. It is a very very safe area as well.
Cristina and Phelipe are amazing hosts! On our arrival they took us on a driving tour of Quito, showing us some areas that we never would have seen otherwise. The apartment wad perfect for our stay with our 5 month old daughter. The bed was comfortable, as was the sitting area. We found everything we needed in the kitchen, and it was nice to have a washer and dryer. The apartment is in a quiet neighborhood and felt very safe. The park across the street is lively and fun for peoole watching. Quito is a long city so expect to take taxis - it was only a couple of dollars to taxi to most places of interest. Our one request to Cristina was met with a quick response and I am certain they would work to accommodate any request. They even stored our bags for us when we visited Mindo for a few days. My only regret is not booking ahead to stay there on our return to Quito (they were already booked up). I would highly recommend staying in any of Cristina's apartments. She and Phelipe will make sure you have a wonderful stay!
We experienced a delay in our trip and my main regret is not getting a chance to meet Cristina and spend more time in Quito. She could not have been a better hostess. She arranged for us to be picked up and we were met by her kind husband, Felipe, at 1:30am. He showed us the lovely apartment and made sure we were situated. The refrigerator had sodas, water and fruit. The neighborhood was safe, and the views wonderful. Cristina also kindly arranged for a drive back to the airport. I would highly recommend Cristina and Felipe as hosts.
The apartment is perfect with everything nearby; from parks and recreation to shopping.
We stayed at the apartment for full week and really enjoyed our stay.
Christina and Felipe are amazing hosts. We are very thankful and appreciative of their welcoming and hospitality.
We look forward to coming back again!
