Had a great 3 night stay last week. The grounds, cottages and main house are absolutely beautiful. The hosts were extremely helpful with directions, recommendations and calling taxis. They even set us up with a driver to take us to the nearby hot springs for the day.
We were visiting friends who live in Tumbaco so it was convenient for us, but it is quite a drive to the main sites in Quito. Cabs are cheap but still too far to stay if the main purpose of your trip is to see the city. Tumbaco and Cumbaya do have lot of great restaurants.
Tips-get very clear directions or take them up on the offer to pick you up from the airport. The place is nearly impossible to find on your own. Second, if you make the deposit brought PayPal, the PayPal fee comes out of your pocket, not theirs. Not sure that's how it's supposed to work, but that's how they do it.
