Overview
Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 3
Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz, Galapagos Islands
Casa Tortuga is an ideal home for a couple, a couple with child, or three close friends. This house is in lovely setting surrounded by beautiful gardens that can be appreciated from the large outdoor patio. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare all your own meals. The house is fully air-conditioned, although with the wonderful breeze this house gets, it is not always necessary! The house has two bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed and the other with a twin bed. Both rooms have access to the balcony where you can enjoy a quiet afternoon of reading. Each bedroom also have their own separate air conditioning units. This nicely decorated home is surrounded by a lush and peaceful garden and is just a short walk from downtown Puerto Ayora and very close to the beginning of the trail that takes you to stunning Tortuga Ba...

casa tortuga exceeded our expectations and was a great value. it's an attractive, clean, comfortable, spacious, and functional vacation rental that would even pass for a honeymoon destination (unless you need ultra luxury). the building is a fairly new single-family home that's walled off from the street on the west edge of puerto ayora (i.e., not much traffic). it shares...

Tatjana was extremely accommodating and helpful. The property was clean and spacious and had very nice amenities -- like a king sized bed, big fridge, nice kitchen, washer/dryer, nice shower with hot water, and bottled water. It was very homey and we loved the welcome wagon -- which was a super friendly and sweet small flock of chickens in the...

Very nice home from which to visit the Galapagos. As long as you realize it is a third world country and are prepared for the usual headaches (power failures, internet glitches, water shutoffs, etc.) I cannot think of a better base from which to explore the islands. Our problem was the extreme (and unusual) heat we faced during our week...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Yes the island WAS hot when you were there. Even the locals were struggling! Thanks for understanding with the power glitches, I really appreciate it. I hope you had a safe trip back home.
