When we got to Quito we had no car waiting for us. One was reseved but Hertz gave it to some one on Friday. So Maria offered us a driver with 2 cars who took us everywhere. Without him we could not have done it. His name is Carlos and if you plan on going there we recommened him. The house we stayed at was beautiful it had everything you needed. We felt at home and Maria and her husband made certain that we felt comfortable.

We stayed at Maria and Ken’s quinta near La Merced, and it was wonderful. The house was gorgeous, filled with touches from their travels, and had all of the amenities we needed. We were only 30 minutes from Quito with a shopping mall just 20 minutes away, so although you were in the countryside, it was close to city life too. The gardens were beautiful for taking walks, especially when we saw hummingbirds in the yard, and when we picked lemons and made homemade lemonade right from the yard. The jacuzzi was a beautiful place to sit at night surrounded by flowers and bright stars. Luis, the caretaker on site has a wonderful family and is helpful when needed.
Ken took us on 3 day tours and he was an excellent guide, not only due to his knowledge of the land, but also because he tailored the trips to our family, including a 6-year old. We toured Quito, saw antisana, and visited Mindo, all very different climates and trips. He added personal touches such as bringing homemade hot chocolate, and he gave us many additional tips for our visit. On the last day, ken made us a reservation at a wonderful restaurant in El Tingo, and it could not have been more delicious.
The quinta, La Solana, is truly a place of beauty, and Maria and Ken are wonderfully helpful owners. It all made the trip perfect.
