We are just 12 minutes from Puerto Ayora town and 30 minutes from Itabaca Canal, serving Baltra airport, from where most naturalist day trips leave. All of our bedrooms are en-suite and have all the mod cons you would expect, such as A/C, Wi-Fi, hairdryers, alarm clocks, TV & DVD players.
The administrator lives on the property and is available 24/7 for help and advice. Airport transfers, meals and tour itinerary planning are optional via our convenient semi or fully inclusive hotel/tour packages.
The estate offers an original and idyllic rural retreat where space, privacy and Galapagos wildlife abounds. You will enjoy majestic views from raised terraces and access to nature trails through twelve acres of private forest and coffee plantations where giant tortoises lumber freely and where rare endemic birds thrive; on a clear night you may gaze up into the unspoiled majesty of the milky way. All in all a great alternative to a cruise or traditional hotel experience.
