I stayed at Casa de Nelly for 3 weeks early last year. I was on my own, but had a room with two beds and a private bathroom. Nelly was like a mother, she always made sure that I had everything I needed. The area where her house is situated is perfect: in the middle between beautiful Playa Man (and Punta Carola) and the lovely town of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno. In the nice courtyard you can chill in the hammock or sit at the stone table and chat with other travellers.
Highly Reccommendable!

We arrived from Guayaquil at San Cristobal and didn't have enough cash to pay the 100 $s per person.....a very nice taxi driver took us to 3 banks....no mashine gave us money! We had to leave our passports at the airport and on the next day it wasn't easy to get money from the bank without a passport....But the taxi driver brought us to Casa de Nelly and we got one regular room and one very nice room with a large veranda upstairs with sea view. The couple is very friendly and helpful! The beach was near by (a few min. after the Man Beach (i don't remember if that was the name). We got a last minute price of 80$ for both rooms and where very happy - Thanks again ! The beach was full of sea lions and we had a great time snorkling. The village is very nice and we got on a great day trip for 50$ a person with 3 diferent snorkling places, the gide "Wiliam" was phantastic!( on all the day trips from Santa Cruz the gides were horrible they treated us like school kids and did not get into the water snorkling with us!!) The first 3 days on San Cristobal were my best!!

Room Tip: Take a room upstairs with the veranda and the sea view. We cooked and ate outside!

We spent last april a few days at Casa de Nelly while waiting for our flight to the continent. The rooms were clean, safe and Nelly helped us with all the questions we had. Close to the beach and the museum and only 5' by foot to the bustling town. No special view but quiet. A big kitchen to cook your own food at your disposal. I really recommend this place.

Stayed for two days in August 2011, but also lived on the island for two months. The location is good as it's near the main boardwalk and arrival docks. Beautiful ocean view from third floor common balcony. Room was adequate, clean (hard bed) for the price ($40/night on third floor). Common kitchen area is great for longer-term stays so you can cook. Overall would recommend for the price and location. It's a B&B though we were never invited to breakfast so you'll have to ask about it specifically and you can only get internet sitting close to the owner's suite on the first floor.

Staying at Casa de Nelly on San Cristobal was the best decision we made while in the Galapagos. From the top, we had a view of the ocean, harbor, village, and mountains. The air conditioning worked surprisingly well. The rooms were well furnished and clean (some ants after we ate inside though). Nelly was an angel in our minds -- like my own Ecuadorian mother. She sent us snorkeling where Darwin first landed in the Galapagos, and we were the only ones there for three hours. Don't miss the choco-nana stand just up the street!
