Holiday Rental House
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 ...Casa Tortuga is an ideal home for a couple, a couple with child, or three close friends.
