The house is beautiful, view exciting, staff friendly, and location ideal. Keep a look out for sea lions, turtles, and eagle rays while sitting on the deck. The bird watching is spectacular; a lone frigate bird sits on the post in front. A great experience. Highly recommended.

The town center is just a short... More

A great way to end a spectacular dive trip. The house is beautifully decorated and well appointed. A couple of days to relax in comfort and seclusion, although town is just a short water taxi ride away. Ideal place to spend time with friends and family as part of your Galapagos experience. Have food prepared at home or eat out,... More
