Without a doubt, this is a clean, ideal and very wonderful place to stay ! Owners go above and beyond in providing guest services: hiking tips, local telephone calls, extra room chairs and mailing a package back to US. It is an owner and management like this that makes them # 1 trip advisor specialty guest home in San Cristobal.... More

We rented the ground floor apartment: two separate rooms, one with double bed, shower, toilet, fan, AC and TV, and the other one with a single bed, toilet and fridge. The rooms were perfectly neat, the... More

Spent one night here before departing on our Galápagos cruise. Great price, clean and a wonderful air conditioning unit in the room. The owners were friendly and the facility was very clean. Wifi worked great and we felt very lucky to get such a great deal on the room after shelling out a small fortune on the cruise.
