Very comfortable and inviting...breakfast is to order and very good. Gerrit made sure we had the info needed for our forays into Quito and... More

We loved the charm and cleanliness of our cottage and appreciated Gerrit and Patricia's hospitality. Gerrit organized excellent day trips for us with Jamie and Angela, allowing us to experience a great deal during a very short stay. We had a fantastic holiday!

We arrived at Quito late at night after an eventful and stressful day in Otavalo, and B&B Tumbaco turned out to be a perfect refuge. The entire bed and breakfast is so nicely decorated, with beautiful gardens and yards. The owner and his family had been such wonderful hosts to us, always taking care of our needs and help us...

We had a wonderful stay at the B&B Tumbaco. The owner went out of his way to accommodate our family of 8, which is no easy feat. The cabins were a perfect set up for the family and grounds of the inn gorgeous! Would stay again in a heart beat...Thank you B & B Tumbaco!

I highly recommend B&B Tumbaco if you are looking for a beautiful, peaceful place to get away for a weekend or longer. The country setting is very peaceful and the grounds are beautiful. The cottages are the perfect size and include everything you could need for your time away. The host family is very warm and friendly, and readily available... More

We needed a quick getaway from city/work life and this was such a good choice. My husband and I love b&bs but haven't really done them since having kids because they are often very couple-oriented. The hosts assured me the kids were welcome (age 2 and 4) so we gave it a try. It was a fantastic 24 hours. The... More

Quito (and in general any big city in LA) is buzzing with pedestrians filling the sidewalks, cars honking, smoke, loud music, street vendors and lots of activity; in general very exciting, but it wears you out by the end of the day. That is why you need an oasis to rest and recharge for next day (or night). B&B Tumbaco... More

We spent 5 nights at this lovely property while visiting various places in Ecuador. Gerrit and Patrizia are accommodating hosts, and their little daughter a delightful conversationalist. Although it's a taxi drive to restaurants, it's worth it for the peace and beauty of the B&B. The location has especially good access to the airport (1/2 hr vs. over an hour... More
