About our home

Our spacious, open-floor-plan home is placed just outside Quito, in the lovely green and warm suburb of Cumbaya. The house was designed in the 2000 by a french arquitect who favoured light, access to nature and huge windows. The house is surrounded by a large garden (about 900sqm). We are living here with our two daughters so there is plenty of kids equipment up to 4 years, including a trampoline in the garden. Every room of the house as a magnificient view of the garden, the valley and the surrounding mountains.
The drive to Quito is about 10 minutes. Quito with its cultural heritage down town is a perfect location to start trips to the amazon region, the andeas as well as the coast. There are more than 5 daily flights to Galapagos and the airport is just about 30 minutes away.

The ground floor of the house includes a spacious living room with fireplace, a lounge, guest toilet, large kitchen and adjoining dining room, as well as two separate bedrooms with each having their own bathrooms and walk in closets. You can access the terrace and garden from the living room as well as the bedrooms.
The second floor houses the gallery, a study, the masterbedroom including walk-in closet, separate balcony and spacious bathroom with jaccuzzi, as well as two bedrooms sharing a bathroom and walk-in closet.
When staying at our house, we can arrange for you to get weekly fresh organic vegetables, milk, homemade jam and fruit delivered. Also, you will be looked after by our very friendly housemaid. She is happy to cook for you, if needed, and will take care of the house.

Ecuador is one of the most versatile countries, with a stunning biodiversity. You can cross 4 climate zones in a couple of hours. Daytrips from our house include the cloudforest, thermal baths at 4000m, untouched Paramo and Polylepis forests for flora lovers, horseback riding around the volcano Cotopaxi, camping in desert like surroundings and so on.
We have travelled extensively in the country and can provide you good information as well as english and german speaking tour guides.
My husband loves climbing the snowy peaks of the Andes and can give you details on the best spots, guides and good preparation.
