Outstanding stay. I knew that I had picked the right place when I communicated with Gundi. Very good communication. Gundi was there to pick us up when we arrived off the bus at the main dock in Puerto Ayora. She was a wonderful host and went out of her way to accommodate me and my girlfriend. The bungalow in the... More

Gundi is unbelievably helpful in planning a stay in the Galápagos Islands. She has recommendations for things to do and tours to take on each of the islands. Jean's home is spotless and the rooms are very comfortable. Gundi cooks a large breakfast every day. The location is a 3 minute ferry ride to the center of town. We had... More

My husband and I had the most wonderful experience at Jean's House last week. We are so pleased we selected this beautiful house to enjoy our Galapagos vacation. Gundi keeps the house in mint condition and ensured we had a delicious breakfast each morning to start our day. She helped us plan our days and even helped us prepare our... More

I have to say, I was a little unsure at staying at a b&b as I like my privacy when I am vacationing. But we felt truly comfortable from the moment we arrived at the dock. Gundi was waiting when we arrived and picked up as many suitcases as she could handle, and along we went. The water taxi only... More

Upon my delayed arrival Puerto Ayora, Gundi was waiting for me at the dock like a long lost friend. A quick boat taxi ride and we disembarked near Jean's Home. Gundi is your host and she is amazing-- she was born on the Islands and she knows everything and everybody. Ask about the history of this home as it is... More

We stayed in Jean's Home in late April / early June for four nights. It was a great place to stay. Gundi (who runs the place and cooks a great breakfast every morning for you) was incredibly helpful. She met us on the dock at Puerto Ayora when we arrived looking lost, she was full of advice for the best... More

We stayed at Jean's Home for 9 days in April. Gundi truly goes out of her way to insure that guests have a great vacation. She gave us many recommendations for day tour boat operators and places to visit - and everything she suggested was worth visiting. Reviews from other guests of the house and rooms and her great breakfasts,... More

Gundi who owns this place is so kind, helpful and informative. She knows everything there is to know about Galapagos and speaks English, Spanish and German which is really useful. We stayed in the four-bed bungalow which has a kitchen. It was a wonderful place to stay at on our last night in Galapagos. You take a river taxi from... More

During our recent visit to the Galapagos we stayed three nights at Jean’s Home in Puerto Ayora. Jean’s Home is a Bed & Breakfast on the other site of the harbour of Puerto Ayora. There is no road to that part of the town so you have to take the water taxi for 60 cents a person. On the first... More

We chose Jean's Home because of the positive reviews previous guests wrote and we can now add our own. We cannot find another word than "perfect" to describe our stay at Jean's Home!
