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 Pomasqui
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.

We stayed at Finca Analia for 4 nights. Everything was impeccable. The house and the grounds are even more impressive than in the pictures. It was more than enough space for our family of 5 yet it felt cosy and comfortable. It’s a good location for day trips to Quito, Pululahua crater, Mindo, Otavalo, Cayambe, etc (we had a rental car so I can’t speak for other modes of transportation). The beds are super comfortable and despite being relatively close to a very busy street, it was very quiet. The kitchen has everything you need. We had breakfast and dinner every day and appreciated simple things you don’t always get in rental properties (e.g., good quality knives, a blender for making smoothies, serving bowls). Check in and communication with the owner and property manager were quick and easy. Both speak English. There is also a grounds keeper, Ernesto, who will take care of anything you need (setting up the hammocks, the ping pong table, BBQ, etc.). He even washed our car twice before we were even up in the morning! If you don’t speak Spanish, he will connect with the property manager if he needs a translator. We managed with gestures and a few words in Spanish. Would definitely recommend.
Amazing house with amazing views
We were expecting beautiful views based on the pictures but I was in awe of the beauty that surrounded the property. There was such a the relaxed atmosphere within the property and we did have a great time exploring the surrounding area and lounging on the hammocks. My only regret is that we spent so much time getting to know Ecuador that we didn't have time for the pool. The house itself was very nice and clean and was very comfortable for our group of nine. I highly recommend this property for any group or family that wants to take in the gorgeous sights Quito has to offer or anyone that wants to kick back and relax during their vacation.
Gorgeous, breathtaking, relaxing surroundings. Beautiful house inside and out
This was the most amazingly beautiful house I have ever stayed at. It was so peaceful and relaxing. Ernesto was so helpful with anything we needed. The scenery was beyond any other. Would definitely return!!!! Our group just had a fantastic time. The only thing I would have added were floaties for the pool!!!!! Thanks again for the wonderful experience
Thanks for your kind review,...
A gem of a place hidden between the middle of the world and heaven
I hope that if you have any doubts about renting this wonderful location hopefully this review will solidify your decision to rent. The property is surrounded by beautiful mountains the pictures do not do it justice on the website. In the morning you can wake up to the great sounds of the mountains and wildlife. The property has lushies amenities that are all kept up to date. It is great having a pool only a couple of feet away from the house. We were a family of 9 and felt we had more than enough room without feeling on top of each other. The kitchen is awesome and up to date, coffee maker, water purifier, with a french door opening to the porch that is opens up to the rear mountain view. If you are worried about support what I can tell you is that the combination of Pablo, and his brother Pedro in Ecuador you are never without a helping hand around. There is also a gentleman by the name of Ernesto that is always around and able to hail a cab, order a pizza, or give a restaurant recommendation. That being said my family did not require much assistance as we had visited Equador before but it was nice knowing that if we needed anything someone was always able to help. Will be back for sure.
Thank you for your awesome review, we strive to serve our guests welcoming them, and making them feel at home. We would thank you to share our services with family and friends who plan to visit Ecuador in the near future. In the last three years we have expanded our guests family around the world, promoting tourism in Ecuador and sharing with them our little cozy villa around the corner of the Middle of the World. Hope to see you back soon.
This is a very nice place. Pedro was also a great person to meet and provided help arranging transportation and giving advice on guides. This would even work for those that can not speak Spanish as Pedro can provide assistance in that regard. It is highly recommended.
Wonderful Private Villa
The house was even more than we had expected. Beautiful architecture!! Tile and custom wood work throughout. Plenty of space, we only had six people. Lots of outside patio, veranda spaces. Awesome pool, and never ending landscaping. Very, very clean and well maintained. Did not feel like a rental but like some one home because of the comftable feel and care. The owner Pablo was awesome. Informative and available to help with questions and ideas on things to do. He was funny and super easy. Was so helpful that we felt instant friendship with him. We met his family, his wife and daughter super friendly. We had no problems whatsoever with anything!!! Highly recommend. Ecuador was very safe, people super friendly. Weather was mild. Lots of things to do close to the house. We went horseback riding in an amazing valley, went zip lining, hiking, swimming in waterfall within 30 min to a couple of hours from the house. Of course the Center of the World was right around the corner. We could see the monument from the property. Also have to go to the Amazon jungle- A must see!! Loved our entire experience!!
Thanks for your great review! Please share with family and friends your awesome experience in Ecuador. We enjoyed having you stay with us and hope to have your referrals visit us in the Middle of the World soon!
