You will quietly sleep in a new renovated antique stile apartment loft in the city center of Quito. Just some steps away from one of the nicest and biggest parks "Itchimbia" which is perfectly for jogging and other sports. Just 10 minutes away you find the city center which you can see best right from the terrace of our families house. There are plenty of shops and nice restaurants just around. We also give you every day a full breakfast which you can prepare on you own the time you want to.

The space

It is a quite apartment next to the park with a full equipped kitchen, 1 bedroom with 2 queen size beds (140cm) and a private bathroom with an incredible rain shower. Everything is renovated with love and we tried to reuse old things inside the new decoration. I think you will love all the details. And best for business: we got a ultra speed internet connection like you love it in your home. If you want to wash clothes you have your own washing room. There is also a drier.

Guest access

You get separate keys for the entrance and apartment. Feel free to leave and enter whenever you want.

Interaction with guests

Normally we will be always around and help you with questions and tips where to go, but sometimes we are traveling. In this time my sister in law will help you with all things you need. She is also always around. Her name is Pauli and she will be also happy to help you in all cases.

Other things to note

We always leave you every day bread, eggs and fruits, as well as tea, coffee and milk. Everything else like cornflakes you always find in the kitchen. You can prepare it whenever you want to wake up ;)

You also have an XBOX 360 with plenty of games and Blueray Player with lot of movies, where you can also stream Netflix, Amazon, Youtube, whatever you want.

You got your own Library with lot of business books. If you have some for us, fell free to leave them ;-)

It was a great experience staying at Martin and Cristina's. Paulina (Cristina's sister) was so gracious and treated us like family from the start. We arrived in Quito very late. Paulina arranged a cab to meet us at the airport, and when the driver had a problem she came and got us herself! The large apartment is beautiful, unique and home-like. The kitchen was very well equipped. Starting each day with the beautiful view was delightful. We could actually see the landmarks we wanted to visit in the historic city center and reached them in 10 minutes on foot. Because of the commanding view, some outdoor steps are involved but these can also be avoided with a $1.50 cab ride close to the door. If you want the antidote to the sterile, square hotel room this is the place! We loved it and the orientation it gave us to the city.

The house is beautiful and very close to town. It's about a 7 minute walk to town where you can pass restaurants and bars. The view was amazing. We took a lot of great pictures. Paulina and Juan Carlos were great hosts since Martin and Cristina were away. Juan picked us up from the airport and Paulina dropped us at our next destination. We can't describe how amazing they were.

Martin and Cristina's place is wonderful. My only wish is that we could have stayed longer. We are a family of three and the home had more than enough space for us. It was clean and beautifully decorated. The doors and tables--I think Martin's woodworking artistry-- make the home so cozy and unique. We slept so well! The home had everything we needed for our stay including fantastic coffee from Galletti-- which we later visited to buy lots of coffee to bring back with us. For those with children, there is a high chair and baby tub. The garden area is also very nice. Our Spanish is terrible, but there was a folder with information in English including restaurants nearby and details about the park right up the steps. We arranged for a ride from the airport with their friend, Juan Carlos, who was great. He met us at the airport with a sign and was so cheerful that we immediately felt like we were in good hands. We weren't able to meet Martin or Cris, but Pauline was at the house to greet us. She brought us breakfast foods (including super fresh bread) and was also a lovely, helpful, and sweet person. We wanted to explore Quito a little after check out so she let us store our luggage in the office space by the house. She also helped us arrange a ride back to the airport with Juan Carlos. The neighborhood is excellent. The steps are intense, but the workout was good for us and we loved the views from Itchimbia Park, which is only five minutes away. We walked to the park in the morning and evening to see the incredible views and the people enjoying the outdoors. We kept saying "breathtaking" and "stunning" when talking about the views from the house and the park. Our experience staying in this home was one of our best during all of our travels in Ecuador. We loved everything about it including the people who made or experience so delightful. We would definitely recommend it.

We are a family of three, with our little one being 3 years old, traveling around Ecuador this summer for 6 weeks. Martin and Cristina's place is where we feel most like being home and cannot resist of returning. Our second time staying at Martin and Cristina's place is just as good as our first time experience. Paulina is so hospitable. She checks in with us every single day to make sure that we have enough of everything we need to make our stay a comfortable one. She also makes herself available whenever we need information or advise for places to go and activities to do. Martin, Cristina, and Pauline are fantastic hosts and we will for sure stay with them again. As a matter of fact, we are before we fly back to the States!!!

Beautiful apartment next to beautiful parque itchimbia and within close distance to many shops and street vendors on Don Bosco. Within walking distance of Old Town, and easy to catch a bus or taxi to other popular attractions. Paulina was extremely helpful with helping to find our way and helped us with a taxi. The apartment was stocked with breakfast and cooking basics, warm water and wifi (which was pretty slow). The apartment is located along a very long set of stairs, so be prepared to break a sweat on the way home. I would definitely stay here again and think it is a great location to fall in love with Quito.

I highly recommend staying with Martin + Cristina place. Its a wonderful place. Paulina and Juan really went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. Paulina was great in giving us suggestions as to where to go in Quito and also provided us with eggs, bread and fruits for our breakfast. When we told Paulina that we were going to the park she ran out and brought out a bike for our 3 year old son. Truly a pleasant experience.
