About Pablo Alvarez

I grew up in Quito, but left Ecuador when I was a teenager. My studies took me to Germany, Kansas and California. The last fifteen years I made Texas my home, and the property in the pictures will most likely be the home for my retirement years.

Pablo Alvarez purchased this villa in 1975

Why Pablo Alvarez chose Ecuador

This property was passed down to us as part of our parent's inheritance. The property was initially bought by them in the late seventies, when the valley was still a rural area. In the last forty five years Quito has grown, and the property that once served as a weekend home, has evolved into a great place to host family friends and guests.

What makes this villa unique

All the wood works are custom made, which gives the place a unique touch! The balcony in the back of the house faces north, looking over where the equator line divides the globe into two hemispheres. I truly enjoyed the view from the kitchen bay window with the Casitagua in the horizon during the sunset. It is a property that enjoys a quiet and relaxed environment with a World Heritage city a few miles away.

Pocket Picker

  • 2 of 5

The property is very nice and everything it is proposed to be. However, once there, the resident agent picks your pocket with unreasonable charges: $40.00 dollars to go 5 miles for grocery, $100.00 for the half hour ride to or from the airport, day trips for which he is devoid of basic information. For perspective, you can take a cab from downtown Quito to the property for $10.00 dollars. Also, he is a hotrod driver which makes clients feel ill at ease when transported, rather than comfortable and safe.

We would not return to this offering, nor recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Dear Dan, We apologize for not having fully met your transportation arrangement expectations. We are not responsible for any third party services recommended to our clients, including transportation, tours, and catering. All services recommended are not part of our villa rental agreement, and they are paid directly to the service providers. We limit our responsibility to recommending these services to our clients, keeping in mind their safety, comfort and cost. Our guests are free to take our advice, or to make their own arrangements for sightseeing and transportation at all times. This is the first time we receive a complaint for our third party transportation provider rates and driver. I have made them aware of your complaint, and they apologize for any wrong doing as far as the driving is concerned. In regards to the rates they have not been increased in the last two years. They are reasonable compared to similar service providers. Renting a large high end SUV with capacity for 8 people with leather seats and hiring a bilingual driver who is at your disposal cannot be compared to the local taxi rates. We will review and go over the rates and services of our third party transportation provider, and will also make it clear and more explicit to all our guests that they are free at all times to compare their rates to other providers. We take our guests reviews very seriously, and will be very proactive trying to make sure our guests have their expectations met. We would like to thank you for your generous tipping, for your business and for choosing booking with us. We express our sorrow for not having met your transportation expectations. Kind regards,

Great family stay at villa

  • 5 of 5

After spending a week traveling in Ecuador, I stayed here for Christmas weekend with my wife and here family, who are from Ecuador. The owners and caretakers are fantastic and made us feel like we were friendly neighbors rather than guests. They even went as far as to let us borrow a Christmas tree with decorations for the holiday as well as a nice bottle of wine as a gift. The pictures on the website are very accurate and the home is well maintained. The activities, which include the pool, basketball, volleyball, pool table and ping pong table, kept us and the kids entertained. Our family enjoyed so many great memories during our short stay here and I guarantee we will be back again.

Thank you again Pablo, Pedro, Tito and Tita.

Maravilloso Lugar!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Es la segunda vez que vamos en familia a Finca Analia. Increíble lugar, la casa es amplia, cómoda y muy acogedora, todas sus instalaciones están muy bien cuidadas y tiene cada detalle que hacen que uno se sienta realmente en casa. Ademas sus alrededores son simplemente encantadores con paisajes espectaculares para disfrutar tiempo al aire libre y de mucho relax.

Su ubicación es excelente un poco apartada de la ciudad si quieres estar fuera del bullicio, pero muy cerca de todo a la vez para los que vamos de paseo.

Pedro y Ana son personas realmente encantadoras, se preocupan de que cada detalle no pase por alto y siempre están presto para cualquier ayuda que sea necesaria.

La verdad es que es nuestro lugar a regresar cada vez que estemos por Quito. Muy recomendado, de seguro no se van a arrepentir de escogerlos.

Esperamos desde ya regresar pronto!!!!

Our Perfect Family and Friends Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 12 recently returned from staying a week at Finca Analia. We could not have asked for a better place to stay. Not only did Pedro and his staff accommodate all of our needs, they went beyond our expectations. The property is gorgeous and immaculately maintained. The setting is quiet and located on the outskirts of Quito. We are already planning our vacation retreat at Fiinca Analia next year and hope to make this an annual event.
