“Perfect Galapagos Escape”
Reviewed 24 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This villa is the perfect location for a family Galapagos vacation. The house is nicely done and provides room and privacy for all family members. It is wonderful to feed pelicans in the morning, have an afternoon siesta in the hammocks, eat dinner on the outside terrace looking at the sea, or discover animals swimming by. The villa is conveniently located near Puerto Ayora (2 minute water taxi for excursions/Shopping) or the beach (3 minute walk) and tour boats sometimes come for a direct pick-up at the house. Service is fantastic (cooking, laundry, cleaning, local organization etc.), one is extremely well taken care of so that one can truly enjoy the holiday. Thank you so much, Juan, we will recommend Galapagos Villa 100%!

“Extraordinary Waterfront Villa”
Reviewed 1 April 2017 for a stay in January 2017

From the incredible house to the breathtaking views to the activities on the harbor, our time at Casa La Iguana was simply spectacular. The house is perfectly designed to accommodate a group of friends and family - with areas that work for communal gathering moments and more private spaces for alone and reading time. However, what really set this trip apart – and has provided us with treasured memories to last a lifetime – are our new friends who turned this house into a home for us during our stay. Many thanks to Alejandro, Mariana and Saira for taking such good care of us. We will definitely be returning to Casa La Iguana in the future.

“Amazing house, wonderful staff”

From the moment we were greeted by Alejandro, we felt welcomed and cared for. The food, cooked by Marianna, was amazing. The property was excellent. The porch, pool and hot tub became a wonderful gathering place for the family. The beds were a bit hard in several of the bedrooms, but that could certainly be a personal preference.

Merci Coralie,

Je suis content que vous ayez tellement aimé la maison. Merci d'avoir dit que la maison est conforme aux photos que nous montrons. La brise de l'océan contribue à détériorer les choses si vite ici. Nous faisons de notre mieux pour garder la villa dans des conditions optimales, comme le font tous les matelots.
Je suis très content que vous ayez apprécié notre aquarium privilégié. Vous ne savez jamais ce qui apparaîtra la nuit car nous sommes très près de l'océan et il y a assez de profondeur pour de grandes surprises.
Je suis désolé de lire sur la présence de trop de bateaux perturbant votre vue pendant votre séjour. Il y a définitivement des jours de la semaine où l'on voit beaucoup moins de bateaux. Si vous étiez resté une semaine complète vous auriez eu de meilleures chances de profiter d'une baie moins fréquentée.

J'espère que tu auras une chance d'y retourner un jour. Merci beaucoup d'être resté avec nous!

Meilleures salutations,
Juan Altgelt
