“A wonderful, familiar place to stay”
Reviewed 2 November 2011

We spend a week at the B&B Tumbaco, and it was the best choice! The cottage was always clean, we didn't miss anything! Whenever we needed something, we got help: Travel information, taxi, telephone... Our breakfast was just perfect, we even got the lactose free milk - not available everywhere. - Even my Ecuadorian friends were impressed. :) - This is the place we're going to choose our next time in Ecuador, and I hope that will be soon! Thank you very much - I will recommend you to everyone traveling to Ecuador! Muchas gracias!!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in October 2011. The guest house was very comfortable! Patricia and Gerrit were so helpful- they came up with places for us to eat, arranged our taxis and gave us a hiking route for our final day in Tumbaco. While this place is a bit off the beaten path, it is worth it!

We stayed in B&B Tumbaco for a weekend in October 2011 and it was lovely in all respects. The location is very nice for those who want to be a bit outside of Quito with a wonderful calmness and a beautiful landscape to discover. The cabana was really cosy and spacious for the 2 of us. The breakfast was very very good. But what makes B&B Tumbaco really to a special place to stay is the host Gerrit and his family. He gave us so many good information and helped us with contacting some tour operators for a trip to Galapagos. So if you want to go a bit outside Quito and are looking for a peaceful place with pool and a large garden to spend some sunny hours, this is the place to go!

We had only a week to visit the Quito area and wanted a base that we could use to have day trips outside of the city. We were delighted to find B&B Tumbaco online - and every single review was spot on. Gerrit and Patrice have a delightful oasis about 30 minutes outside of Quito. Three little cabins tucked into gardens full of flowers, orchards, and groomed trails. Everything is immaculately maintained and our cabin was adorable. Gerrit arranged for transportation on a daily basis with such a happy, smiling driver - Elsa - that much of our experience was getting to enjoy her laugh and careful driving. Takes about $15 and 30 minutes to get to Quito - but the drives are always part of the experience and the views incredible. We took a 2 night trip to a cloud forest lodge - El Monte - Mindo, Ecuador and Gerrit assisted with the details. Enjoyed Otavalo and local pueblos along the way. Ended with a MUST see Quito at night, dinner in the square, and Friday night entertainment which featured indigenous costumes and spectacular setting. For a short and adventurous vacation of only a week we felt safe in a fantastic setting in our own private little paradise. Worth being a bit further out than we originally intended. You'll love it!

We booked B&B Tumbaco after reading reviews on TripAdvisor and weren't disappointed. We had originally considered staying at one of the hotels in Quito. Instead, we ended up at a place in a safe neighborhood with elegant surroundings, comfortable accomodations and friendly hosts eager to ensure that we felt at home--all for less money. Gerrit and Patricia and their staff were gracious hosts providing delicious breakfasts and helpful advice. We arranged our airport pickup through Gerrit and ended up hiring the driver for several day trips around the region. Gerrit also helped us arrange a bike tour in Cotopaxi National Park which was a highlight of our stay--especially since we ended the day in the hot tub. The location in the suburbs of Quito is much quieter than in the city. We got around by taxi and found prices quite reasonable and taxis very accesible. There are good restaurants in Tumbaco and nearby Cumbaya. If you want to spend most of your time in the city, accomodations downtown may make sense but for a quieter, secure environment with helpful hosts, you can't go wrong here.

We stayed at B&B after we got married for a few days while my family was in town. The place is absolutely gorgeous and the grounds are kept up very nicely. The cabin we stayed in was comfortable and we had everything we needed.

The hosts are wonderful people and were very happy to have us. They helped us out with whatever we needed like calling a taxi, or helping us when we locked ourselves out of the bathroom!

The location is just outside of Tumbaco enough so that it is very quiet, but close enough so that it was a short trip into town.

Tumbaco is a wonderful, quiet retreat from Quito. Garrit was a gracious, attentive host and we felt lucky to happen upon this oasis. I highly recommend staying here, with one caveat: be prepared to spend a good deal of time and money on taxis if you are going back and forth into Quito a lot. That said, it's a fantastic value and great place for kids!
