Rut has done a great job finding me a one bedroom apt. The land Lords are the nicest people I have ever met, I would rent this apt. again in the future and I would use Ruth as my agent.
We cannot say enough good things about Rut as our rental manager for our 5 months in Cotacachi. She was always there for us to contact with any issue that came up & cared for our needs rapidly & happily. She even met us with a smile on her face & extra help to unload our things when our plane was delayed & we arrived after midnight! She is trustworthy, kind & capable. You will have no worries while you are in her care! We miss her now that we are back in the USA.

If you are looking for a reliable professional...look no further. Rut is very knowledgeable of the area and was so helpful to answer all of our questions. Her expertise and guidance were invaluable in our decision to move to Cotacachi. She extended every courtesy imaginable to make us feel welcome.
We also had the opportunity to stay in her rental apartment (feels like a home) during our visit. It has very nice furnishings, is in a great location with picturesque views, a quiet neighborhood, a lovely yard and patio. The short walk to town was easy and enjoyable.
We are blessed to call Rut our friend. Please do not hesitate to contact Rut..her services are exemplary!

Rut was my first contact with a "real person" in Cotacachi. It makes everything real when you actually know someone where you are going to move to. I booked one of her properties to have a landing zone and a place from which to check out long term rentals. She greeted me when I arrived in Cotacachi (she also booked the Cotacachi driver that picked me up in Quito). Rut personally saw to all of my arrival details and gave me a tour of the Cotacachi highlights and the essential places I needed to know (ATM's, restaurants, laundry service, etc.). She is reliable, responds quickly to emails and genuinely cares about people. I can't imagine my transition from the U. S. to Ecuador without her help. I highly recommend her services.
Rut and her husband Juan are the greatest. Rut decorates nicely, and Juan keeps everything in tip-top working order. In addition, Rut was so nice to go out of her way to help me with interpreting and/or talking to people for me, navigating the transport and pickup of intl. packages mess, where to buy certain things, telephone issues, tv connection procedures, and many other things that are difficult for a newcomer to Ecuador and to Cotacachi. She is a wealth of information, and has a knack for getting things done. I appreciated Rut and Juan greatly.
I’ve lived in Cotacachi for 2+ years, and have made one of Rut’s rentals my home for most of that time. I couldn’t have made a better choice. Rut has proven to be a caring and responsive landlord, and has become a trusted friend, as well. I would recommend her services without reservation.
For going on 2 years now, Rut has been “Our Girl Friday” in our absense from Cotacachi. We have a rental in Jardines de Pichavi that she has been managing for us for that period. We have found Rut most personable and in additional to handling the regular duties of a property manager, she has always been willing to go out of her way to perform any tasks we have asked of her. We have grow to think of Rut more as a friend and without hesitation would recommend her services.
My wife and I have worked with Rut as both our landlord and Spanish tutor. We have always found her to be responsible, organized, hard working, and caring. She is a genuinely good person and completely trustworthy. We consider her a friend and recommend her services without any hesitation.
