Places to stay in Galápagos Islands
Beautiful bright private apartment in a quiet neighborhood. 5 minutes’ walk to the entrance of the trail to Tortuga Bay, yet close to town center and main harbor. Certified by the Ministry of Tourism. Excellent for a comfortable stay and at an affordable price! 6 years of experience with Airbnb, 15 years in the tourism business and hundreds of positive reviews are our best business card! If you are traveling more than two people we have also Sky Blue just above Ocean Blue!
Beauty and comfort get together in Encantadas. The building was inspired in our life at sea, every space is used, it is very comfortable, practical and beautiful decorated. Encantadas Ocean Blue is on the first floor. The place is perfect for couples. You have in your apartment a full kitchenette, private bathroom, hot water, air conditioning, free drinking water, and internet (please notice than the internet is slow compared to mainland everywhere in Galapagos). Be a responsible traveler: Tourism is regulated by the authorities in Galapagos; we are certified by the Ministry of tourism for this activity.  We are conscious with the environment: We are naturalists, so we try our best to be ecological friendly: AC is inverter system, our hot water is run with solar power, we collect rainwater and we have endemic and native gardens.
Privilege location: It's at the entrance of Tortuga Bay, so just in the limit with the National Park, therefore you are not in the middle of the city, it's a quiet neighborhood but yet close to everything. Just two blocks away from the main street.
  • My wife and I had a fantastic stay here! The apartment is spotlessly clean and everything well-maintained. It's in a nice, quiet spot in a residential area but just a few blocks from the main areas in town. Several small shops are close by or the main supermarket, Proinsular, is about 5 minutes or so walk away. Lots of good restaurants too. Nice amenities - kitchenette, min-fridge and freezer, washer/dryer, big bottled water dispenser, A/C, etc. Booklet with local tips and ideas. Plenty of hot water (solar with electric backup) and water pressure. The hosts sent a lot of useful tourist information beforehand that we found helpful. They offered to arrange a taxi driver to meet us at the airport for a good price, which we appreciated. We hired the same driver for a Highlands Tour during our stay. The hosts were very responsive in communicating before and during our stay. Nicolai was around most of the days we were there and was very friendly and fun to talk to. He also was kind enough to arrange to ship us an item we left behind. Bottom line, we would highly recommend this apartment for a couple looking for a relaxing, enjoyable, and quiet stay in Puerto Ayora.

  • Really enjoyed our sty here! The host provides a ton of helpful information and fast communication. Kept very clean and very comfortable! Would recommend

  • Aura was great at communicating with us. The place was clean and tidy and very relaxing. The toilet was clogged upon our arrival and the power was out the morning of our departure, but luckily didn't cause too much of a hassle for us. The place is a bit further from the main street in town than we expected, so be prepared with good walking shoes. We would stay again, thanks Aura for all of the great suggestions!

    Carson2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent Airbnb! We stayed for 3 nights and it was the perfect base for exploring Santa Cruz. Centrally located but on a very quiet street. There were lots of little touches that made our stay really special. The space is stylish and has every amenity you could hope for (including a good coffee maker and a full water cooler). Aura and Nico were both welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. And they provide you with an excellent set of tips in terms of activities and places to eat etc. Highly recommended!

    Azam2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing experience with Aura. She is an amazing host, who helps you with brilliant recommendations where to book tours, who to spend your time and much more. Her apartment is very clean and cozy. Highly recommended!

  • Comfortable, very clean place, in a good, safe area. Very responsive to all our needs host.

    Mariusz2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Just like everyone else in these reviews, we absolutely loved our stay at Aura and Nico's place. The room is very! clean, tidy, have pretty much anything you may need during your stay. Aura and Nico were very thoughtful in their hospitality. Prior to our arrival they sent us a whole list of recommendations which were very helpful. Their property caretaker also came by every morning to tidy up the garden and take out the trash. They even helped us with calling a taxi and storing our luggage after the checkout and before we departed. We highly recommend this home for your stay in Galapagos.

    Puerto Ayora, Islas Galápagos, Ecuador

    A beautiful duplex full of light and surrounded by gardens, it's located in a quite and residential neighborhood of Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island. Within walking distance to the seafront, the Charles Darwin Station and the town centre! (5-10 min) you can easily access all tourist sites and find privacy in a beautiful home.
    Sol Marina Suite is a private well located duplex in El Eden neighborhood. First floor includes a nice well equipped kitchen, a dining area, living room, and a small wood deck with a hammock, surrounded by a beautiful garden area. The second floor has a spacious bedroom with big windows. a full bathroom, high sealing and a small balcony with garden views.
    It is a private and residential area, walking distance to the center of town, depending of where you going it could take like 5 to 10 minutes to walk and approximately a top of 15 minutes to the main pier. We are also located close to the children’s park and a play field.
  • Fantastic apartment! Everything went absolutely fine from the first contact onward. Before checkin we received very detailed info of how best to travel to the apartment. They were so kind to store our luggage while we arrived very early. During our stay our hosts were super helpful and always made sure everything is okay. The apartment is spotless and nicely furnished. The upstairs bedroom is very comfortable. Kitchen has everything to prepare own meals- which we sometimes did, as it’s very tempting to shop groceries and fish in the central market hall. A big plus is the quiet location of the apartment away from the more touristic areas that tend to be quite lively. Nevertheless it’s only a short walk to then sea or downtown and there are always taxis to be found close by. Perfect choice for Puerto Ayora!

    Michael2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful duplex, with everything you need for a perfect stay. The people very friendly and willing. It has a kitchen that helps a lot, laundry and cleaning every 3 days. They always have drinking water to fill the bottles that helps a lot. The place is very well maintained and is 8 minutes walk from the center. We liked it so much that we extended our stay here, without a doubt the best place to stay. Thank you!!

    Camila2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • The place is a bit off the beaten path but is is so clean and comfortable that made up for the slightly longer walk. Nice value!

    Dan And Laura2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely and comfortable loft. Quick responses and warm hospitality. Great location close to town but quiet at night. They were kind enough to help us out with laundry twice during our stay which was such a luxury. Would highly recommend.

    Pooja2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Jose & Milagros were extremely friendly and accommodating, and Jose was great at assisting with cab booking and also helping us book one of trips, which was made easier by Jose calling and booking on our behalf. Great location and place to experience the Galapagos.

    Nic2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • They have been great days in the apartment, well located, quiet and with excellent hosts!

    Jose2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • It is worth staying in that house. The street is quiet, access to the Darwin Institute, the port and other areas of Puerto Ayora from the house is quick and easy. A good place to stay on Sta. Cruz Island.

    Angela2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • we stayed here for 14 nights in December it is a short walk to everything you need, Very clean and what you see in the photos is what you get, the windows have netting over them which allows a lovely breeze through and no bugs very environmental, very quick to respond to emails and Jose is very helpful

    Puerto Ayora, Galápagos Islands, Ecuador

    Please see FAQ below. A beautiful private and exclusive villa nestled on the slopes of an ancient and inactive volcano on Santa Cruz Island, at almost 400 meters above sea level. The area is inhabited by Galápagos tortoises, finches, owls and many other wildlife that frequent this extensive property in their routine pilgrimages. Receive 25% off when booking your stay in mainland Ecuador at Hacienda La Danesa, the perfect compliment to the Galápagos Islands.
    Perfect if: You want pristine, not pretentious. You are looking to connect not connectivity. You prefer personalization over ostentation. You seek local flavors not familiar fare. You honor authenticity over predictability. The view from the villa’s spacious veranda is almost endless over the majestic Pacific. A sense of an organic simplicity is woven throughout the house and private cottage through a blend of authentic Scandinavian style influence owned by the Olsen Moeller family. Casa Roca Lodge holds special appeal for those with a passion for refined splendor, ensconcing its guests in comfort, luxury and privacy. From this superb vantage point, one can become absorbed in the marvel of an abundance of wildlife inside the property, including the Galápagos Giant Tortoises. Santa Cruz, like almost all the islands of the Archipelago, is of volcanic origin and the presence of rocks and lava formations is evident from all sides. The land of this property is no exception, as well as much of the construction of the house takes lava rocks as a distinctive element of its decoration as well as handcrafted teak from mainland Ecuador. Additionally the terrain is crossed by paved trails surrounded by Scalessia and fruits (oranges, lemon and tangerine) trees that you may harvest with your own hands to enjoy fresh fruits with amazing views. Niels and Ana, your Trip Designers, strive at every moment to make everyone’s journeys an authentic and unique one. They are your private connoisseurs and they will be happy to assist you in building an itinerary that is just right for you; either in Galápagos or mainland Ecuador. We have also predesigned packages with prices for locals (no middle men or nasty mark ups!) that have been personally tested and had 5 star ratings from previous guests. Please read our past guests' reviews. WiFi is available with limited data. Once you have consumed your data, you may charge up to get more data.
    • To Puerto Ayora, main population of the Island that has a range of restaurants, bars, handicraft shopping and markets. It is also the port of departure for a few boat expeditions to some nearby islands: 18 kms (main port for expeditions is Itabaca Channel and is about 30m drive- closer than hotels in Puerto Ayora) • Garrapatero beach, idyllic beach with kayaking available: 9kms. • Al Cascajo: small town nearby with a very basic assortment of provisions: 2 kms. • Observation sites of giant tortoises: several in a radius of up to 15kms. • Baltra Airport/Itabaca Channel: 40 Kms. • Pikaia Lodge: Surely the most exclusive resort in Galapagos, with an excellent gourmet restaurant. Less than 1 km in a straight line although the road for cars takes almost 3 kms. Casa Roca enjoys the same views as Pikaia Lodge! If you would like to, we may make a reservation for dinner or spa.
  • The home and grounds are as spectacular as they look in the photos. Casa Roca is an exceptional spot with incredible views, and our hosts and the team they have supporting them (especially Betty!) are top notch. We opted to book a week of tours through Niels, Ana and Betty, and highly highly recommend you take the same approach if you’re up for a guided local’s perspective on what’s best to do in the Galapagos. Niels put us in Betty’s capable hands and she bent over backwards to make sure we had a week to remember. Our Spanish is pretty terrible and she really took care of everything. We can’t thank this team enough. Go here. Leverage Niels, Ana and Betty’s expertise. Have the time of your life. We can’t wait to return and bring friends!

    Lindsey2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Such a fantastic place to stay! Beautiful location in a more remote setting on Santa Cruz. The views are worth just sitting and staring for awhile. Klever, the caretaker, was very friendly and helpful. It’s a good idea to bring some books or downloaded shows because the WiFi seems intermittent. Doesn’t matter because you’ll probably want to just walk around visiting the giant tortoises or looking out at the ocean. Good chance to unplug. Places to eat are limited so plan to cook or get a taxi to town, which will likely add up. There is a nice hotel/lodge about 10 minutes drive away that has a restaurant. Would gladly revisit if back in Galapagos!

    Court2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • This was an amazing remote location in the hills above Puerto Ayora. It was approx. 20 mins each way to town, but since we booked all our excursions through Niels, we had rides arranges to/from town each day and it was really simple to get wherever we wanted to go. The excursions also cost about 1/3 as much as i was quoted by other travel agencies for the EXACT same thing - so HUGE shoutout to Niels for making our trip that much more affordable and arranging everything. 10/10 would recommend this place to other guests - only thing to note is there was no cell reception or internet up there. Plenty in town though so it was nice to disconnect and be one with nature while at the Airbnb ;)

    Warren2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time, Klever and Javier were very attentive and helpful. The place is beautiful and all the small artistic touches were appreciated. Neils was always available even when I called at 4:30am once, which leads to my only real suggestion, a large battery powered clock in each room. Cellular data on the island was sporadic and wasn’t updating my phone properly. I would send messages to Javier and they wouldn’t show up on his What’s app until the next morning. For future travelers I would recommend getting a local sim for your stay so you can always call. Many restaurants claim free WiFi but the actual internet bandwidth is abysmal. Those are all trivial matters in the face of Casa Roca’s beauty and serenity, and as long as you have things planned out the lack of connectivity can be a good thing. I wish I had taken more time to just enjoy the beauty and grounds. If you are planning a romantic trip and have a decently sized budget definitely give Casa Roca a look, and if you do, give yourself a day or two to just sit around and enjoy the beauty. I don’t think there’s any place, you can rent at least, like it on Santa Cruz.

    Ryan2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • This house is incredible! It surpassed all we hoped for!! The villas are beautiful and the views phenomenal. A real gem, for sure!

    Mia2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • An incredible villa with breathtakingly spectacular views. It’s tranquil and you will leave uplifted and at peace. There are several lovely trails you can explore, while observing Galapagos tortugas and other endemic species. Kleber, the housekeeper, is super, very friendly and efficient. He welcomed us at the airport and was always reliable about our transportation needs. He always told us engaging, informative stories about his life in the Galapagos. We learned a lot of the Santa Cruz culture and environment thanks to him! Make sure to ask him to stop at the local organic coffee shop. You have to pay a bit for this tranquil location for example, the Wifi was fairly choppy, and restaurants are quite far away so you must plan for home-cooked meals Also, while he is very responsive and reliable, you do have to depend on Kleber for all transportation no matter what---it really helped that one person in our group knew Spanish. Our family thought these minor 'inconveniences' were very much worth the experience. We will never forget our time at Casa Roca!

    Anindita2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • The property is stunning and if you’re wanting to have a break from reality, it is really perfect. Klever is an awesome house keeper and looks after you very well. He is clearly very passionate about the property. It’s a one of a kind place and a great place to spend time in nature. We were doing yoga at the property and although the weather was not great we enjoyed it very much. Please be prepared that you are quite remote, and communication may be difficult so it’s good to plan ahead. And speaking some Spanish is essential as Klever cannot speak English and we perhaps had some communication misunderstandings. Things things in mind, we would absolutely recommend this place as a one of a kind experience. Thank you Neils and Klever!

    Anya2019-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • The house is clean and stylish with heartbreakingly beautiful views. We saw a giant tortoise outside every day. This alone made the stay unforgettable. The house has no wifi and no cell service. Be prepared for this. The driver will come early or late--you'll never really know. The drive to town is long, so plan on stocking up and cooking breakfast and dinner yourself. Also know that the boat rides to nearby islands are long, so you will be doing a lot of "commuting." The diving through Scuba Iguana was very well-handled. The other tours were confusing and not really explained. We didn't really know what each day would entail until it was happening. The tours were generally enjoyable, with some degree of hardship (getting off plane, carrying full backpack for several hours in the humid sun.) It's not for the pampered. If you want to come to Galapagos and experience solitude and nature and are willing to be out of touch, this place is great.

  • Truly a wonderful place, far from the noise and walking distance to everything.

    Hanna2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Good location, slightly back from the city center (20 minutes walk from the port, 10 minutes walk from Darwin station), quiet. Common outdoor areas very nice, small rooms summary but with the necessary.

    Isabel2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Accommodation with character and excellent attention, thanks Luz for all the help.

    Toni2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Casa Eden for 8 nights and had a lovely time. I was greeted by Luz, who showed me to my room. She made a cooked breakfast for me every morning and tidied my room when I’d gone out for the day. The room itself was pretty basic - a bed, bedside table, and a cupboard to put clothes in. The bathroom was spacious and the shower was hot. The aircon worked perfectly and was definitely my favourite thing about the room. There was a communal area with hammocks to lounge on, though I was the only person staying in the guesthouse during my trip so I had it to myself! There was also a private balcony from my room, which was nice for sitting out to read in the evenings. The WiFi was very patchy and seemed to not work more often than it did work, but this seemed to be the case for everywhere on the island, so I definitely wouldn’t let that put you off staying here. The only downside was that not all of the windows in my room were covered, so it would be very easy for anyone in the neighbouring buildings to see into my room, which is a little worrying for a young female travelling alone. Other than that, it was a lovely stay. It’s about a 10 minute walk to the main centre in town, so it was very easy to get about by walking everywhere, though a taxi is only $1.50 if walking isn’t your thing!

    Maisie2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • The location was exceptional and the accommodations surpassed our expectations. Tatjana and Dustin responded quickly to any questions and helped us with ideas for our time in Galapagos. Staying there was a great choice.

    Barbara2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy and comfortable house in a quiet location of Puerto Ayora. The bedroom has great beds - we slept very well. The kitchen is equipped with everything necessary. We bought fish at the local market and made tropical fruit smoothies. We are pleased to recall our dinners and breakfasts on the terrace, surrounded by a tropical garden. An aviary with chickens was a pleasant surprise - we fed the birds salad and watched them. Absolutely recommend the house and would love to come back here again.

  • We were greeted by Tatjana when we arrived and she oriented us to the casita and property. The casita and the property are beautiful and we were very comfortable for our 5 night stay. Tatjana and Dustin are lovely people and very responsive and helpful when needed. Nothing could have been better! Such a great place to stay while visiting Santa Cruz.

    Wendy2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in the Casita Muyuyo for five nights in February 2020, our group consisting of 2 adults and 2 boys (ages 9 and 12). The boys had their own bedroom, and each had their own bed. We had our own bedroom, with a very large and comfortable (firm) bed. Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, with the master ensuite also incorporating a closet area. There is an air conditioning unit in each bedroom, but none in the living/dining/kitchen area. There is a tap for potable water, which was much appreciated. It's also a short walk to the downtown area, and right outside the trail to Tortuga Bay (which is a must-must visit.) Casita Muyuyo was impeccably clean upon our arrival, and the hosts Tatjana and Dustin were very receptive our many questions and requests (about stores, tours, ferry boats, etc.) For us, Casita Muyuyo was like a refuge. We would come home after a long day in the sun and relax on the front patio, rinse and lay out our snorkel gear, hang towels to dry, etc. The front porch area is within the walled compound, and it feels very private and secure. We simply had a wonderful time, and I would not hesitate to recommend Casita Muyuyo to a friend or return myself. Enjoy!

The walk to the beach along the trail takes approx 30 min, but well worth it! The house has three bedrooms each with their own en-suite full bathroom, and 1 additional half bathroom off the living room. The showers have both hot and cold water. Each bedroom has an individually controlled air conditioning unit and comfortable bedding. The house has free internet (but can be quite slow, this is Galapagos after all), a tv with a dvd player, washer and dryer, and a land line that can be used for local calls or to receive international calls. The house is ideal for families, friends, and for couples who wish to have a bit more space for themselves. All ages welcome!
    The house is located in Las Ninfas neighborhood, which is a primarily residential neighborhood conveniently located next to the central part of town. Most areas of town are within walking distance from here. Very close to the house is the entrance to the trail that takes you to the beautiful Tortuga Bay beach.
  • Great location, walking distance to city center as well as Tortuga bay (beach path). Everything was smooth from the minute we arrived as hosts were very clear with what to expect and had someone there to greet us and explain everything about the house. Washer and dryer were a great touch. Property has a lot of privacy, very relaxing oasis, yard chickens, hammocks etc. There was also a coffee maker, PLENTY of space, and balcony with great views. Be prepared to see maybe one or two large bugs. Tatjana immediately sent pest control once we mentioned we had seen a couple (as expected in this part of the world). Super responsive hosts which made us feel safe and taken care of as we were four girls in our 20’s! Definitely recommend these properties/ hosts.

  • The house is located in perfect location. At the footsteps of Tortuga Bay and a just a 10 minute walk to the main street in town. The staff is very friendly and the owners are extremely responsive. The house is nice and spacious, highly recommended for stay.

    Puneet2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Nice house with a lot of space. It's next to food street (5min walk). We liked the garden. Unfortunately the view from the upper terrace isn't very nice - you feel like in a town on the mainland (but maybe that's normal and ok Puerto Ayora).

    Susann2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is exactly as described and a little bit better. Very lovingly decorated, totally clean and totally comfortable. The beds are a bit hard, but we did not mind. The house is very big, was perfect for us to 4th with 2 couples! Unfortunately, when we came home in the evening, we always had a cockroach in the kitchen, but I think the situation is unavoidable. Did they then always caught and let out again. The location of the house is also great, right at the entrance to the tortuga beach and 5 min from the center, so you were quick in the center but it was very very quiet! All in all it was a wonderful stay at Tatjana and Dustin! Thank you so much!

    Manuela2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • The house is beautiful, it has a filtered water system plus fresh water for human consumption, it is very well located, from the house you can reach the main tourist places and the pier to take the tours of the islands, the hosts have a book where they explain the main activities you can do and the best restaurants to visit, really a perfect house in a paradise!

    Diana2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Tatjana And Dustin place was amazing, great location and very clean. I would definitely come back here again.

    Carlos2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. Beautiful, safe, spacious home with gorgeous garden and lots of outdoor spaces (balcony, hammocks) to relax. Close to amenities but still private. Excellent hosts responded quickly with answers to questions and to help with arrangements. We hope we can go back sometime! Thank you for opening your home to us!

    Dania2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • We've stayed in a lot of Airbnb houses and apartments all over South America and in the US and Tatjana and Dustin's place has been our favorite of any place we've ever stayed. The place is beautiful and very well kept and their attention to detail is wonderful. Very conveniently located and the hosts were very helpful in communicating with us and providing lots of helpful tips. Highly recommend!

    Puerto Ayora, Galapagos, Ecuador

    A beautiful duplex full of light and surrounded by gardens, it's located in a quite and residential neighborhood of Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island. Within walking distance to the seafront, the Charles Darwin Station and the town centre! (5-10 min) you can easily access all tourist sites and find privacy in a beautiful home.
    Sol Marina Suite is a private well located duplex in El Eden neighborhood. First floor includes a nice well equipped kitchen, a dining area, living room, and a small wood deck with a hammock, surrounded by a beautiful garden area. The second floor has a spacious bedroom with big windows. a full bathroom, high sealing and a small balcony with garden views.
    It is a private and residential area, walking distance to the center of town, depending of where you going it could take like 5 to 10 minutes to walk and approximately a top of 15 minutes to the main pier. We are also located close to the children’s park and a play field.
  • Location is great, only a twenty minute walk into town but close to the Charles Darwin Research Center. A daily cleaning service is provided, as well as laundry. I was required to pay five dollars for a dish I broke (which is fine, it was my mistake), so I would recommend being very careful with amenities provided at this stay. Needless to say, I was thoroughly satisfied with my stay and encourage anyone planning to visit Santa Cruz to book with them!

    Tyler2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect, just what we needed!

    Chris2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • This duplex is perfect to be in the Galapagos. It has a very comfortable space, very beautiful and well maintained. Walking close to everything and the attention is impeccable. I will be back for sure!

    Camila2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at Sol Marina was great! Jose & Milagros were perfect hosts and went over and above to make us feel comfortable, the laundry service is a plus! The place is laid out well, the upstairs is bright and has a great little patio to sit out and read or have breakfast. As people have said it is a little off the main drag but we didn't see that as a problem. The walk in was 10-15 minutes depending on where you were going and the place was quiet and peaceful. Some people might want to rent bikes, which can be done easily.

    Ian2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • 5 stars for everything! Hope we will be lucky enough to return to Galapagos one day and we would definitely stay here again!

    Val2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts met me upon arrival and I was pleasantly surprised by how spacious the place was. It was incredibly safe and secure and included laundry service and drinking water (the tap water is not safe to drink)! It’s about a ten minute walk to the center of Puerto Ayora and the hosts offered helpful tips and were accessible if there was a problem (which there wasn’t). I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone traveling to the Galapagos!

    Celeste2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Cristina & Monica's place was one of my best Airbnb experiences. My husband and I are travelling with our one-year-old, and requested a last-minute-booking because we had to leave our previous Airbnb that was a mess. Communication was super fast, fact that helped us in our emergency situation. Don Jose and his wife received us and helped with our luggage until our suite were ready, so we could continue our tours. We were very well taken care of and even provided with a crib so our son and us could rest better. The duplex is great, super clean, well equipped, stylish, with a balcony that we loved. We felt at home all the time. And having free laundry service was one of the best things. I wish we had found Sol Marina earlier and could've stayed there all the time during our visit to Santa Cruz .

    Maria2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location, just a couple minute walk to the main drag. The hosts were receptive and communicative, and even arranged for our taxi at the dock and at the apartment. The room has a fan and a little deck which was super nice to sit out on and have a snack. Overall everything we could ever ask for!

  • The house is a great space and reasonably convenient for accessing the main parts of Puerto Ayora. It has good air conditioning in the rooms, nice basic amenities, comfortable living room. No issues with check in. Good privacy in the little compound with a couple of other homes. Never an issue with feeling safe.

    Court2019-11-18T00:00:00Z

  • Amazing AC, has hot water and wifi, clean, and is super spacious! There is filtered water for free which is super nice and also a refrigerator! Super well-located in the middle of everything in the san cristobal island near supermarkets, diving/snorkeling agencies, restaurants, laundry places, and more! But most of all, Mercedes is an amazing host, such a lovely person and she is always willing to help you anytime. She is super responsive to messages, and she gave me so much information about the town and how to get around! I would definitely choose this house to stay and you're lucky that you came across it!

    Lane2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • The location is excellent, a spacious room. The lack of a window in the bedroom makes it dark and basement-like. Soundproofing is not the best. Overall it was good

    Beautiful bright private apartment in a quiet neighborhood. 5 minutes’ walk to the entrance of the trail to Tortuga Bay, yet close to the town center and main harbor. Certified by the Ministry of Tourism. Excellent for a comfortable stay and at an affordable price! 6 years of experience with Airbnb, 15 years in the tourism business and hundreds of positive reviews are our best business card! If you are traveling more than two people we have also Ocean Blue just below Ocean Sky!
    Beauty and comfort get together in our house. The building was inspired in our life at sea, every space is used, it is very comfortable, practical and beautiful decorated. Encantadas Sky Blue is on the second floor. The space is perfect for couples. You have in your apartment a full kitchenette, private bathroom, hot water from our solar system, air conditioning, free drinking water, and internet (please notice that internet is slow compared to mainland everywhere in Galapagos). Be a responsible traveler: Tourism is regulated by the authorities in Galapagos; we are certified by the Ministry of tourism for this activity. We are conscious with the environment: We are naturalists, so we try our best to be ecological friendly: AC is inverter system, our hot water is run with solar power, we collect rain water and we have endemic and native gardens.
    Privilege location: It's at the entrance of Tortuga Bay, so just in the limit with the National Park, therefore you are not in the middle of the city, it's a quiet neighborhood but yet close to everything. Just two blocks away from the main street.
  • The apartment is perfectly located - few steps from main street and at the same time sooo quiet. It has all facilities which one needs for several nights stay - bathroom with hot water, kitchen, enough space for your stuff, washing machine, terrase... The top for us was comminication with Aura. We received great instructions prior to arrival and also in the apartment was plenty of informative material to make the most of our stay. Upon the arrival we were welcommed by Maribel who showed us everything and was very kind. If we ever come back to Galapagos this would be the place to stay. Thank you so much guys!

    Petra2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

    Puerto Ayora, Galápagos Islands, Ecuador

    This newly constructed apartment features a modern look with an open floor space. Enjoy the private balcony and entrance, open kitchen/living space and large bedroom.
    The apartment has one double-size bed in a private bedroom as well as a comfortable sofa bed. The living room provides two extra sofa beds for families and larger travel groups needing additional sleeping capacity. The fully-stocked kitchen enables you to save money cooking a few of your own meals so as to spend funds on island tours. Enjoy the private balcony with a morning coffee or an outside dining experience.
    Most people visit Puerto Baquerizo Moreno town for the incredible ecological wonder of the island. The main boardwalk is home to the archipelago's largest sea lion colony, which lay in rest on the main beachfront. You'll have easy access to swim with the sea lions and sea turtles at nearby beaches like Punta Carola, Tijeretas and La Loberia. Enjoy the harbor by renting a kayak or stand-up paddle board and paddle your way in and around the many boats anchored in the calm waters of the bay. The town's permanent residents know each other very well. It's a small town with a population of around 8,000 people. This gives the town a great sense of community and unity. The pace of life is slower than on Santa Cruz Island and mainland Ecuador... and San Cristobal residents don't seem to mind much. As Puerto Baquerizo Moreno town thrives off of eco-tourism, you'll find that many local families earn a living directly from tourism or from the goods and services that keep the industry vibrant. When walking around town, you'll experience many aspects of the community life such as fishermen unloading their catch at the fishermen's pier, local surfers at the main surf breaks, school children playing on the boardwalk, men playing EcuaVolley (a version of volleyball) in the local parks, and families buying groceries and out for evening walks.
  • Very good place, clean, cozy

    Pamela2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. Adry put a lot of work into making sure we had so much information about the Island and the Galapagos far in advance to us coming. The location is great. There is a fantastic bakery on the corner down the street. Very close to downtown, short easy walk. I was very lucky to find this place.

    Kelli2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

  • A fantastic apartment from which to explore San Cristobal and the Galápagos! The apartment was very central and came with all the amenities you could need. The tips and hospitality made this trip especially memorable!

    Frederika2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend staying at this apartment. Adry and her family are so nice and helpful. They go beyond expectations and are truly superhosts. The city is small and easily walked, the location is central.

    Jean-Michel2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Martha is a super nice host. We have been able to use all the shared facilities even after check out. Her Hostal is one of the cleanest we have ever seen. We loved that! The bathroom was big enough and the shower had great pressure. The shared kitchen is huge and very well equipped. The outside area is nice and shady. The price is a very reasonable one for Galápagos. We would definitely come again! Thanks.

    Franciska2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • perfect place to stay. So clean and perfect location. Our second time here!

    Sarah2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Rocio's place is great!!! It's super clean and comfortable, and ideally located. It's just off the main road, so you're besides everything but it's quieter than being directly where all the restaurants are. And it's 2 minutes away from the beach. Also, Rocio and her family are super welcoming and helpful. She's a wonderful host, and always keen on helping and making sure we're comfortable and that are questions are answered. The 2 rooms we were in were spacious super clean and in great condition. Same for the kitchen, it really has everything you need! We felt like home there and didn't want to leave :)

    Dominique2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect in Martha's hostel. The kitchen was super well equipped, the rooms clean with nice towels and ammenities. Very good location, wonderful guest. Exceeded my expectations...I highly recommend the hostel.

    Su2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Martha's place. It has a very nice location so you can walk to all places of interest in a short amount of time. We got good tips about local restaurants and where to book day tours. But more importantly we could always count on Martha's or her husband's help. We can definitely recommend her place.

    Leszek2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • My family and friends very much enjoyed staying at Hostal Jeniffer. The place is very clean and we appreciated the use of the kitchen. The location was wonderful (10min walking distance from the ferry and 1.5 blocks to the beach and just off the Main Street) and the staff were very kind. My command of Spanish is poor and yet they understood my requests and questions. Although they do not book tours, they provided recommendations of agencies nearby. I would stay here again - we always felt safe and slept very well here and it really is easy walking distance to everything.

    Aida2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Jenniffer Hostal was a wonderful place to stay for our one night on Isabela Island. It was convenient to the port, the beach and the main parts of town. Communication was easy and the space was clean and comfortable.

  • Great place to stay in Isabella! The room is very spacious and clean; somebody was in to clean every day which was much appreciated. The kitchen was nice to have access to as well, and we enjoyed relaxing in the hammocks every night before heading out to bed. There was almost always somebody available at the reception desk as well. The location was also good.. just off the main street so quiet, but close to the restaurants and on the side of the town that's closer to the ferry dock.

    Vanessa2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

    Glenn2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and clean hostel, friendly personnel, in close proximity of the harbour, restaurants, and snorkelling. The electricity and water went off twice, but I guess that happens in a small island sometimes.

    Birgitte Morillo2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    A beautiful home full of light and surrounded by gardens, it's located in a quite and residential neighborhood of Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz Island. Within walking distance to the seafront, the Charles Darwin Station and the town centre! (5-10 min) you can easily access all tourist sites and find privacy in a beautiful home. The house fits up to four people and includes WiFi, cable tv, and laundry services.
    Sol Marina Garden House is a private well located two floor home in El Eden neighborhood. First floor includes a nice well equipped kitchen (with oven), a dining area, living room, 1/2 bathroom and a wood deck perfect for hammocks with an outside table, surrounded by a beautiful garden area. The second floor has two spacious bedrooms with big windows and A/C. The area includes a full bathroom, a high sealing and garden views.
    It is a private and residential area, walking distance to the center of the town, depending of where you going it could take like 5 to 10 minutes to walk and approximately a top of 15 minutes to the main pier. We are also located close by the children's park and a play field.
  • My stay in sol marina was excellent, upon arrival they took great care of us, at every moment they were waiting for us, anything we needed was provided, the cleaning was excellent. I fell in love with Galapagos, I recommend this accommodation, very good in everything.

    Micaela2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Sol Marina is a lovely cottage and is very convenient to town. It’s a great size and is well equipped with lots of thoughtful touches. Jose and Milagros are exceptional hosts...always so kind and willing to help. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

    Cortney2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 10 days in this house and had a wonderful time. The house is well equiped and felt like home. We particularly appreciate the space, the breakfasts we took everyday outside under the porch looking the nice flowers of the garden and the quiet environment. The house is also well located at a walking distance of the Darwin Center and if you do not want you can easily hire cheap taxis passing by. Thanks to Jose and Milagros, two nice people who provided us a laundry service at the house and were very helpful and reactive in any occasion. If we come back to Santa Cruz we certainly be very pleased to stay again in this house.

    Jean-Michel2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • The hospitality was top notch, and the house was beautiful and very comfortable to hang out at after a long day in the sun. It had everything we needed - highly recommend!

    Christina2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great house with laundry service and relaxing hammocks to sleep or just chill in. The place was overall just great with understanding hosts.

  • This is a great place. We had the whole house and it was very comfortable and very clean. The location is good. It is in a nice, quiet neighborhood, walking distance from the Darwin center. Also the people there were very welcoming and helpful. I definitely recommend this place.

    Abigail2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • The casita at Sol Marina was fantastic - more then we expected and very spacious and comfortable. It was plenty of room for our family of four to have time together and solo. There is someone to help on site every day. The ability to have laundry cleaned as needed and for free was a much needed amenity when you are going to the beach. Also, it was so nice that beach towels were provided. House staff were also were very helpful with questions and advice. Overall a wonderful place to stay for a vacation of a lifetime.

    Madi2020-02-24T00:00:00Z

  • Very nice room, cleaned daily, decent shower, great staff and helpful with planning your trips. Great location, 15 min walk to port, 3 min walk to fresh made empanadas at the feria and 10 min walk to fresh cooked seafood - delicious.!! It is about 20 min walk to the Darwin center and local breweries. The bus stop is right outside the front door and yes, the breakfast is a treat.

    Hostal Suiza is a small Inn near the center ( 8 min. away). Two dogs are part of our family and in our patio you can still find endemic plants and animals. We try to keep an environmentally friendly life style as far as possible at our "rustic" place.
    We live just a few minutes out of town and have a patio and a terrace with two hammocks. In our backyard you can observe finches and lava lizards and you are going to meet our dogs Paxi and Oso and our chickens. We keep an environmentally lifestyle and do not offer air conditioning but our rooms have big windows and you can sit outside and enjoy the breeze. In the reception area you have access to a kettle and a coffeemaker, a fridge is available to store food or water and plenty of dishes and cutlery if you want to prepare your breakfast or a salad. If there is something else that you need like a blender we are more than happy to provide it, just please clean and store everything again for you and others to use.
    There is a shop around the corner and a bakery down the road, several restaurants and cafes, travel agencies and dive shops in town. We are ten minutes from the beach ¨Playa Man¨ and five minutes from the town and main dock.
  • Hostal Suiza is exactly as Silvia advertises it. Our room was basic with a comfortable bed, hot shower, and fan (optional air con). The Hostal is in a great location within walking distance to the water front, restaurants, interpretive centre. Silvia shares useful information for your visit. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

    Audrey2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Silvia and her husband were great. The place was much slicker than it looked in the pictures. Her husband was up early every morning helping out. She greeted us right off the ferry and couldn't have been more helpful. Also, she has 2 amazing dogs, Luna and Bingo, that will warm your day (if it's not already too hot). Thank you Silvia!

    Kristyn2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I really enjoyed the stay. It is close to the promenade and places for lunch and dinner. 10 minutes walk from Mann beach. Clean and tidy accommodation. Thank you

    Thalia2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place to stay. We were welcomed with such a warm hospitality that it is rare to find. The space was exactly as described and we loves their focus on sustainability. Short walk to all restaurants and port. Will definitely come back if we make it back to Galapagos

    Carina2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay! They went above and beyond to help me out with random things like cleaning the mud off my shoes. And the dogs are amazing as well :)

    Zev2020-01-09T00:00:00Z

    Perfect if you are looking for a beach vacation in a young and remote island of the Galapagos.
    La Casa is a very comfortable little beach fronted home that acommodates 5 people in 2 fully furnished appartments. Each has two bedrooms with private bathrooms and a sofa bed in the living room also with private bathroom. The fully equipped kitchens will give you the chance to cook and feel at home while you explore the wonders of this magical place at your own pace. You can enjoy and relax an idyllic, self-catering vacation without the hassles of house maintenance or the pressure of a guided tour. As the owner am happy to present Mi Playa to you, due to its superiority, comfort and detailed attention. The place looks new thanks to a wonderful helpful house keeper who keeps the house and its sorroundings. ABOUT GALAPAGOS The archipelago has two seasons; the hot-rainy season between december and may. Strong short tropical showers normally during the night, eventually during the day too. Normally after the rain the sun comes out strong again. February, March and April are the hottest moths of the year. The 'Garua' season between june and november are commonly overcast, sometimes islands are covered in a fine mist specially during the early hours of the day, the mist eventually clears up and then sun shines out which can last for days and sometimes weeks. Coolest months of the year will be september, october. Conditions of the sea will fallow the same pattern of the seasons, during the hot months of the year the winds cease and we have very calm ocean conditions perfect for traveling between islands. From june to october ocean can be a bit rough making it more difficult to travel between islands. Touristic activity never stops really and travelers take the choppy waters as adventure, normally having a lot of tales to tell... Check-in time is 14:00
    The house is right in a small fishing village, very quite all the time. If you want to go out there are a couple of bars around and a salsa place. You can access all places just by walking. If you are a family with small kids, the bars and salsa place are far enough so you don´t get any of the noise they make.
  • This beachfront paradise is a stunning place to enjoy the beautiful beaches of Isabela right outside your door! Ximena and Edgar are the perfect hosts and are so responsive and helpful with any question or request. Edgar was attentive to anything we needed and was there to pick us up on arrival and every moment until we had to leave. We would wake up every morning with the beaches all to ourselves and if we weren’t doing tours, have the most relaxing space to either just watch real-time nature channel out the front door or venture out to the variety of local shops and restaurants and nature trails. We had WiFi access most of the time which was much different than when we were in Santa Cruz. We had also read that there were not grocery stores on Isabela, but there are small local stores to buy food supplies so it’s all very convenient. Also so many great little restaurants so you have lots of choices. I highly recommend this Airbnb and we are so grateful to Ximena and Edgar for sharing their amazing place with us to make priceless memories! Thank you!!!!

    Debbie2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place couldn’t be more perfect!! Picture perfect beach and love sleeping to the sound of the surf! Clean and have everything you could possibly want/need, including boogie boards!! Best place on Isabela hands down!

    Stacy2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is an absolutely amazing place to stay: a simple yet stylish and comfortable new house right on the beach yet also conveniently located on the outskirts of town. Iguanas on the beach, seals swimming by in the surf, a sea lion meters away, and a short distance to the tortoise reserve. Wow! That and Edgar is always there to help out. We loved Ximena’s place and highly recommend it!

    Maureen2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at mi playa with two teen boys 5 nights the week before christmas. It was exactly what we had been looking for. We went to the market and fresh bread place and made meals at home most days and enjoyed a few dinners out as well. It was nice for the boys to have access to gatorade’s and snacks between amazing tours and treks on the island. We boogie boarded right in front of the place, did tunules, tintoreras and the wall of tears and all the beautiful stopping points. edgar was a wealth of Information and the house was such a comfort to come home to. Plenty of room for everyone, falling asleep to the waves crashing right outside and Three full bathrooms was a luxury. The loungers on the little deck were a peaceful place to read and nap. this place gave us a great way to be adventurous and have time to rest as well. From what we could tell it was by far one of the nicer places to stay on the island. We really loved our time in isabela and staying at mi playa was a big part of that. beds were very comfortable with great bedding and plenty of pillows. highly recommend for a group or family on isabela!!! Edgar even got our ferry tickets back to santa cruz for us and followed us to the ferry to make sure we were well looked after. ❤️hope to get there again! the baynard family

    Kate2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location, right on the beach

    Matias2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • This place was fantastic. Great location - you literally walk 7-10 steps to the beach (maybe less if you have long legs); quite a few restaurants / bars all within a 2-3 minute stroll. Such a great vibe and the entire neighborhood is so friendly and it's very safe. Ximena and Edgar were very responsive and always easy to get in touch with. Wireless stopped working after the first day which was a bummer but you're not really here to check email and work so it wasn't a big deal...and if you really need to, there are plenty of cafes/bars on the block that offer free wifi. it's a non issue. Overall, I would highly recommend this place and can't say enough great things about Ximena and Edgar.

    Jackson2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing!!! Absolutely the best property on the island and likely all of Galapagos! Super clean, updated amenities and not overdone. View from any room in the house is the ocean. Five steps from beach! Talked with Ximena via txt prior to arrival, but never got chance to meet her. However she has the best caretaker any property owner could ever ask for! Edgar met us at the boat, took us to the house and showed us where to go around town for best service and deals. He does not speak English, but very easy to communicate with. He was so great at his job he anticipated our needs before we knew we had them. Always watching out for us and especially our two teenage kids. Duplex is perfect for families. Plenty of beds and place to spread out. Town is best in Galapagos! Small, friendly and everything convenient!

    Barry2019-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • Our family of 5 (3 young adults) had a wonderful and memorable time at Ximena’s villa right on the beach. The fine white sand and warm surf gave us constant opportunity for swimming, wildlife watching and long walks on the beach. The house is clean and comfortable. While there is no air conditioning, the constant sea breeze kept us cool. There are no screens on the beautiful glass doors facing the beach. So it is advisable to close the lower level doors at sunset. Lots of unique wildlife to see right in front of the house - marine iguanas, Sally Lightfoot crabs, sea rays, seals, and tons of birds including Frigate Birds and pelicans. There are many reasonable restaurants very nearby, and lots of places to have a low-key happy hour gazing at the ocean. Kick back and relax, and leave your stress and daily worries far behind!

    Margaret2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I had a great stay with Gulnara and Celsar. The accommodations were perfect for our stay on Isabela, and they were such kind and helpful hosts. The breakfasts in the morning were great and we appreciated all of their suggestions for things do to on the island. They helped us to book tours and even helped us call when the tours were late to pick us up. Highly recommended!

    Tim2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place!! Five minute walk to town, five minute walk to Concha de Perla & the pier - its perfect! Gulnara's breakfasts were delicious, her hospitality amazing! We are not Spanish speakers, so her English was incredibly helpful. Her husband, Celso is a very knowledgeable Galapagan who was a research assistant to many biologists. He knows so much and was eager to share. The room was perfect and clean, and the garden area and hammocks were the perfect place to relax in the evening. We can't wait to return!

    Jess2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is a truly lovely space. It is perfectly located: an easy 5 minute walk from the boat docks and Conche Perla in one direction, and another easy 5 minute walk to the center of town in the other direction. It’s quiet and outside of the more touristy parts of town. There’s a beautiful little courtyard with hammocks and a lovely outdoor table where we had Gulnara’s delicious breakfasts on the morning. There’s an outdoor sink for washing clothes and nice clothes lines. The room was cleaned every day and everything was clean and high quality. The water in the shower was comfortably hot- way better than our hotel in San Cristobal. Gulnara is a complete sweetheart and helped us with booking tours with a great company in town. I highly recommend this lovely space!

    Sarah2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Clean room, good breakfast, hot shower, quiet place very near to town and beautiful Concha de perla where we swam and played with many sea lions. Gulnera is kind, flexible and did everything to make our stay very comfortable. Highly recommendable.

    Joke En Kees2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Mrs Gulnara and her husband are delightful and very helpful in providing advice. The room is sparkling clean and very quiet- it has a great bathroom and lovely hammocks in the shade. It is a 10 -15 minute walk to the beach and restaurant area but close to the boat harbour

    Rhonda2019-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • We felt very comfortable with Gulnara and her husband. They cared us very nicely: a taxi to the airport, every morning a different, very delicious breakfast prepared. It was also great that we could both move our room earlier on the day of arrival and use it longer on the day of departure.

    Anja2019-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • The location of Gulnara's house is excellent. It is a short walk both to the ferry and into town. The rooms were sparkling clean, and we had fresh towels and linens each day. Breakfasts were very good. We enjoyed relaxing in the hammocks in the little garden. Gulnara and Celso were very friendly and helpful.

    The Hostal, is surrounded by nature, just in front to the beach, close to the main visitors centres, 5 minutes from the central park; the hostal in a very quite place appropiate for resting and enjoy the natural attactions of Isabela.
  • Very nice location close to the beach with an amazing. It's a good value, clean, and has enough amenities even if it's not a 5 star hotel. I would definitely recommend.

    Andrew2019-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Best Location right on the beach. 2nd floor room had an awesome view. It was very quiet except for the sound of the waves. Nothing better than that!

    Donna2018-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location very clean and quiet. They made me really feel at home with their smiles and warm atmosphere. Simple and good as I like it. Thank you so much for the unforgettable stay in your little paradise.

    Jost2018-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and location! The room was perfect for our stay. We had an amazing view of the ocean right from the room. We went to sleep and woke up to the sound of the ocean. The room was perfect for a few night stay in Isla Isabela. There was hot water in the shower which we’ve learned is a hot commodity rarely came by amongst other islands in the Galápagos so we were thankful the shower worked great. The only negative is that the place was advertised as having WiFi but in reality there was none.

    Savannah2018-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • La Jungla was the perfect location with a beautiful view of the beach. It was a little out of the main center of town, but it is such a tiny town that it is just a short 5-10 minute walk away. It was a very peaceful and serene place with many adventure activities and things to see nearby. Additionally, they were very accommodating and helped us with whatever we needed. Highly recommend!

    Jessica2018-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay on Isabela! The hostel is close to the beach and a really nice beach bar. We could see the ocean from our room and hear the waves at night. The hostel is located in a quite area. It's a really peaceful place to stay while you're on Galapagos. The rooms were clean and nicely furnished; and the rest of the hostel was decorated very nicely with some hammocks and chairs where you can chill. Our hosts were super very friendly and helpful and gave us a lot of useful information about the island and what to visit. Moreover, during our stay we had some trouble with a tour we booked at an agency in Santa Cruz. As we told them about that, our host directly called everyone he knew and fixed the tour for us. Without that there would have been no tour for us at all.

    Eva2018-06-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great Airbnb right on the beach. Location was quiet and a bit out of the way, but still within walking distance, as everything is very manageable. Everything was clean and very helpful staff. Unfortunately could not rent bikes in the hotel, but was very close to a super uncomplicated rental.

    Michaela2018-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • Really- location, location, location. Right next to the beach and just a few steps to the boardwalk and nature preserve where you see flamingos.

  • I stayed with my wife and two children in room 1 and we were very comfortable. Alex and his family took great care of us. They were always waiting to help us. They even helped us with laundry service for a small additional price. Miguel, Alex's father, has a taxi and helped us with coming and going from Baltra and also showed us around. This service has an additional cost but the price is also reasonable and it was a lot of fun to talk to him, he is very nice and he has many stories to tell about Santa Cruz. The room was clean and has all the services offered in the publication. It is a bit far from the boardwalk (15 minute walk) you can take a taxi (all charge $ 1.50 per race) but it is better because it is away from the noise. There are restaurants, shops and Banco del Pichincha nearby. And it is near the entrance to Tortuga Bay. You walk to the Market and the street of the Kiosks (8 minutes) Breakfast is very good and substantial. Yes I would return to Gecko Guest House.

    David2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • I was in Feb and Mar 2020 in room 1 with my wife and two children. We were attended by Alex and his family. All very attentive and friendly and they helped us with all our requirements. The room is very clean and has a can of drinking water. It also has a refrigerator, kitchen, microwave, TV, air conditioning and everything that the publication says. They offer laundry and laundry service for a small additional cost, which is very helpful. Also, Alex's dad Miguel has a taxi and offers tours of the island and round trips to Baltra. He is very kind and is very funny to talk to him, he has many stories about Santa Cruz. It is a bit far from the Malecon (15 minute walk) but taxis charge $ 1.50 a ride. It has restaurants, shops and a Banco del Pichincha nearby. There is no discomfort from the noise of the city. It is close to the entrance to Tortuga Bay and Kioskos Street. They have little dogs that occasionally bark but they didn't bother us. Breakfast is good and plentiful. Yes we would return to Gecko Guest House.

    David2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • A remarkable place really close to the port. The place was extremely clean and the air conditioner worked wonders. Everything is about a ten minute walk at absolute most and you also have the public buses that can take you all over Santa Cruz for a very very little fee. The host gave me all the right pointers to enjoy my time there and even provided a map. Enjoy your time here! I highly recommend gecko house!

    Juan2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Although we did not meet Alex we were looked after by his mother lilia very well. We had a cooked breakfast every morning. The accommodation was clean and modern with a kitchenette and small bathroom. The boys could borrow snorkelling equipment and we enjoyed relaxing in the garden with the hammocks. A great little bed and breakfast

    Tamlin2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Good accommodation, nice, clean, comfortable. It is a bit far from the tourist center, so if you like walking it is fine for you.

    Silvana2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • The regular breakfast is super good I recommend ask for the Ecuadorian one if you want to taste a really delightful Ecuador traditional meal. The staff is always willing to help. Definitely coming back :)

    Mayté2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Gecko Guest House. It is a little bit removed from town but easy to find and only a 10-15 minute walk from the port. The host was very kind and even made our beds during the stay which was unexpected. I wished we had access to extra bedding. We appreciated the access to filtered water.

    Stephanie2019-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • Alex and his family have a nice little place in a residential section about a 15-minute walk outside of town, which is perfect if you're like us and want to avoid the touristy noise and traffic. We stayed for four nights at different times during our stay in the Galapagos, as we used Santa Cruz as our "island Hopping" point given the complicated ferry schedules to travel to Isabella and Florena. Alex was very accommodating to our schedule, even allowing us to store some dirty laundry for a weekend rather than drag it along with us to Floreana. To our surprise, the laundry was washed and folded upon our return! We greatly appreciated this as we were just about out of clean clothes. They also have a couple of friendly puppies that like to visit and a neighbor's cat that would make a nightly appearance at the door looking for some affection. We truly enjoyed our stay.

  • The Gecko inn is very well located in Puerto Ayora. You have very easy access to businesses, shops and main avenues. The environment is very safe and you can go for a walk without problems. Your lodging includes breakfast but you also have a private kitchen with basic kitchen implements. You also have some appliances to make your stay easier. Tell me about air conditioning. The lodging has towels, beach towels and hot water. They include a bottle of drinking water which is much appreciated. They have wifi which for reasons of the Island is sometimes very slow, but it is a general issue. They provide you with a laundry and drying service for a small additional cost. You have Mr. Rodriguez's taxi service support which is excellent. Breakfast is served daily, and depending on a particular need, for example, Fernando prepared food for my wife that did not have Gluten. Alex was always very attentive to anything we needed. Mrs. Lilia, despite having had a discomfort in her knees and arm during the stay, every day they accommodated us and cleaned the room and even helped us collect the waste from all guests. The orientation to be able to enjoy Galapagos that Alex has is very valuable since it allows you to enjoy the attractions in the Islands more economically. The accommodation is not luxury, it is more a family atmosphere and groups of simple but clean beach with the necessary benefits for a quiet stay. We are sure to return again when we decide for a new vacation to Galapagos. Thank you very much Alex, Fernando, Mr. Miguel and Mrs. Lilia for your excellent attention.

    Eduardo2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place is much better than I expected. Very clean, has everything and is very well set. Alex is an excellent host, super friendly, he helped us with information about tours. The breakfasts were excellent.

    Andrés2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend. Good value for money and good reception with lots of advice. Set back a bit from the city so it is very quiet and the small interior garden is relaxing after a day in the sun.

    Caroline2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice apartment, in a quite part of the town but not too far by walk to the centre. Very clean and spacious

    Laura2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We were so impressed by the helpfulness of this host family. Because they live on site they are able to help with a variety of things from taxi service to laundry... they were the best! Of course those services weren’t free but the convenience was well worth it and it was reasonably priced. This was our first time on Santa Cruz so we didn’t know what to expect. The location was within walking distance to Tortuga Bay (30ish minutes but most of that was within the park) also near the strip for food and souvenirs and we were able to walk to several other beaches and Darwin research center (tortoises) and close to the port for travel to other islands.The host family was also helpful in telling us where not to miss... which seems to change some depending on the season. We would stay with them again for sure

    Marta2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • The Gecko Guest House is a great choice in Puerto Ayora: far from the noisy city center but still near enough to get there in 10 minutes by walk, near to convenient shops and the market and to the access to the beautiful Tortuga Bay. Alex and his family are very nice and helpful and the apartment is very clean and well equipped.

    Daria2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Gecko Guest House was comfortable and exceeded our expectations. Our room was clean and as pictured. The surrounding garden and yard was great for morning coffee and evening relaxing. We utilized the taxi service offered for a tour of the highlands. Communication was easy and fast. We would definitely stay here again.

    Cindy2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent value! The apartment is in a very convenient location near the ferry port, and there is even a small view of the ocean from the balcony. Less than five minutes in a taxi to the airport. ATM just one small block away. A group of 4 of us booked the apartment for our last night in San Cristóbal. All three rooms had working A/C and fan, smelled fresh and clean, and three separate keys made it easy with all doors locking individually. We had plenty of room to spread out. The two showers worked well, with consistent hot water. Fresh smelling soap and shampoo provided. Check in and out was easy. Mercedes met us and gave us a tour of the apartment to make sure we knew how everything worked. We heard a small amount of noise at night through the closed window -- nothing major, just someone recycling glass bottles and a few people coming and going outside -- so ear plugs may come in handy if you're a light sleeper. Overall I definitely recommend staying here, especially if you're on a budget (the value is truly fantastic compared to other places we stayed in the Galápagos -- including another stay on San Cristóbal).

    Diana2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Mabel was a wonderful place to stay on San cristabol. It was ideally located and Mercedes was always available to help with anything we needed. The space gave us plenty of room for 6 people. We will happily return if we get the chance to come back to the Galápagos.

    Cheri2020-01-24T00:00:00Z

  • Jennifer’s hostal was lovely. The room was really spacious and the showers were so hot! The kitchen always had fresh water & a ton of cooking supplies. Outside was a covered patio with tables and chairs where you can enjoy your meal. It’s located perfectly in the mix of everything going on on the island. If you are looking for comforts of home, I highly recommend booking this spot!

    Marie2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • This a nice and quite place to stay when in Isabela. The room was very clean and spacious, the bed was one of the most comfortable we've slept in so far in Ecuador and the shower had good pressure and hot water (much needed in August!). The hotel is very well maintained and the shared kitchen is one of the nicest and cleanest that I've used in a while. Apart from that, Martha is really a superhost (and her son who checked us in). She responds very quickly and can help you organize tours before your arrival and offer prices that are even better than the agencies on the island. This place is a bargain for what it is! Although it's not on the beach, it's less than a 5 minute walk and right off the main street. Would stay here again!

  • We enjoyed this Airbnb so much. The photos do not depict how big the apartment is. We thought the kitchen area was shared and it’s not - it’s all private. Giancarlo met us at the dock and helped us our entire stay. We really were grateful and enjoyed it all!

  • If spanish is hard for you, do not worry they perfectly speaks english here.

Beds are confortables, to rest deeply

Plenty to do, see, and eat around the place. I found the apartment and the room to be very clean with welcomed (and rare) features such as HOT water and air conditioning. Although I didn't meet Jonathan or anyone else at the apartment, I found him to be responsive and attentive. I really enjoyed my stay and I would definitely stay here again when I return to the Galapagos Islands. Highly recommend.

  • Host met us to let us into the place. It was clean, had a decently equipped kitchen. Would stay again.

  • Johnathan is very responsive, he offers tips and maps on where to go. The location is close to the ferry that takes you to other islands and 5 min walk to national recreational park. Also, plenty of dining places around. I would recommend as my experience was beyond of what was expected. Thank you Johnathan!!

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Edison’s place. It was very clean and they did cleaning every day! The kitchen has all you need and I loved the hammocks outside in the garden.

  • The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. Their hotel was close walking distance to meals and the waterfront. Price was reasonable and units were clean and comfortable. The hot water tends to come and go in the shower, but the Galapagos are hot so it wasn’t a big issue. Overall, it was a great stay. Thanks!

  • Very nice and clean hostal, all the comfort is there: air conditioning, hot water and good mattresses. The location is good, fairly close to the center and quiet. A kitchen is available, practical because the restaurants are quite expensive. It would have been nice if they had offered a breakfast service, too bad! However, they rent bikes directly on site, and offer excursions and ferry tickets to the other islands, practical!

  • Nice peaceful hostel, rooms were clean and spacious with aircon and cleaned every day. Could buy fruit and veg in the market nearby and we cooked every day. Kitchen has everything you need though could do with a refresh of utensils. We enjoyed our stay.

  • Great quiet place a little bit out of the heavier traffic areas. The staff was very friendly and gave us information about the island as soon as we arrived. They have bikes to rent with helmets and told us how to use the local bus system and enjoyed a day exploring by ourselves. My wife and I enjoy places that are a little more affordable and smaller and this met both of these criteria’s. We would stay hear again if we could.

  • Cozy place and good local tips.

    Andréa2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect!

    Daniela2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is off the main street and quiet. It has a full kitchen like a proper hostel and plenty of places to rest in a hammock or sit around with friends. The staff is helpful at finding tours or getting laundry done ($1.5/kg) and returned. Rooms are clean and have AC units. Hot water in bathrooms always a plus. They have filtered water available to fill bottles in the common areas.

    Puerto Ayora, Galápagos Islands, Ecuador

    Sunshine filled, bright garden suite, next to the entrance to the Galapagos National Park and the Charles Darwin Station, and a few blocks away from some of the best restaurants, art galleries and bars in town. Located on the far end of one of Puerto Ayora's main streets, accessible to the road but removed enough to be isolated from the urban noise. One large environment including bedroom (with a double sized and a single bed), living room and kitchen, and a large independent bathroom.
    The suite has its own green garden space, and a large terrace to sit back and relax on after a day of adventures. Water: freshwater is a scarce commodity on the islands. Santa Cruz has a a number of water sources, which are generally brackish and not drinkable. The suite has two supplies of water: one that is not for drinking but which has been filtered and is used for showering, cleaning and cooking; and its own supply of drinkable water that has been physically filtered three times (including a carbon filter) and then processed again with ultraviolet filters.
    The suite sits in a quiet neighborhood bordering the Galapagos National Park and the entrance to the famous Charles Darwin Research Station. Several restaurants, bars and galleries are located nearby, and the town center is within a short walking distance, and the oceanfront is just half a block away. The local fishermen wharf and the town's main dock are less than 10 minutes away on foot.
  • Corina’s place was beautiful and a lovely little bungalow. Very private and in a pretty location. Everything I needed was there and 10/10 would stay there again if I’m around. Amazing for the price

    Joaquin2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • A charming place in a very quiet area, though very close to everything. The room was spacious and had everything I needed. And a very nice host. I will definately stay here again should I return to Santa Cruz.

  • We had a very nice stay in this lovely bungalow. My recommendations!

    Ville2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • This bungalow is everything we expected and wanted. It is a convenient distance to the port, shops and restaurants. Corina's local knowledge was very helpful as well. The place is clean and has everything you need to cook meals if you choose. I was also impressed with the wifi as it was very reliable relative to other places we stayed in the Galapagos. Overall it was a 5 star stay.

    Tiziana2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location away from the hubbub of the tour shops and restaurants , but just a five minute walk from town. Everything you need for basic meals, nice, large bathroom and shower with tons of towels. Stylish design with a nice, private veranda. Corina was very helpful with making plans on the island, and responded quickly to any questions we had, I would HIGHLY recomendable this sweet little bungalow.

    Stephanie2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very beautiful and super comfortable! The location is great. Everything was perfect. Keep in mind that there are several insects around and inside.
