We just returned from a five night stay with Gundi. There’s no need to repeat what the previous posters have said concerning their stays. Gundi goes the extra mile in making certain that your stay is as perfect as possible. Take a few minutes to read the preceding reviews. Every poster has been spot on. Jean’s Home is the perfect place to stay on Santa Cruz. In fact, it is the only place we would ever consider staying on Santa Cruz when we return.
There is absolutely no comparison with Jean’s Home and the hotels you will find in Santa Cruz. The old adage location, location, location really comes into play. You can stay in a hotel room in town with all the accompany noise and hassle or you can take a very pleasant five minute water taxi ride and escape to tranquility that is Jean’s Home. You might be able to save money by staying in a hotel in town but remember that you always get what you pay for. For not that much more that the cost of a hotel room (if any) you will be staying in a home that will become one of your most pleasant memories of your visit to the Galapagos.
If you are going to be staying in Santa Cruz, do yourself a favor and contact Gundi to see if she has a room available for you. You will not regret it.More
