We were at the house with 12 friends for about 5 days! It was the MOST relaxing vacation we have ever taken. The staff was exceptional; the food, ambiance, views, weather, and location were just perfect. Every single guest with us said the same thing. It was difficult to leave this place and go back to the real world. But...

This villa was a fabulous place to stay while visiting the Galapagos. The owner was on site and extremely helpful in arranging tours, taking us hiking etc. The staff was excellent--cooking fabulous meals, and washing our clothes. The house is gorgeous, beautifully appointed and lovely in every way. We spent all of our time on the patio, entertained by herons,...

I can't recommend Casa La Iguana highly enough. The experience was absolutely incredible, from the location of this stunningly beautiful home to the attentive care of Juan (whose family built and owns the home), Alejandro, Mariana and Aurora (who provided us with delicious meals). I was amazed with how the wildlife appeared to come to us during our stay. With...

Our group of 13 just returned from 7 nights at exquisite Casa La Iguana. All of us wanted to stay longer. We loved our stay and were in awe from the moment we disembarked from the panga. Juan welcomed us to his families' home where we met Alejandro, Mariana and Aurora who spoiled us in every way. Our meals were...

There are no negatives for this beautiful house and top notch staff. The moment you walk up the stairs after disembarking from the water taxi - the only way to get to anywhere and they are plentiful. You can even hail your own taxi from the dock, if you like - are the hot tub and swimming pool. We had...

Casa Iguana is the most relaxing, blissful place to enjoy the Galapagos Island. The house exceeded expectations. The house provided every amenity needed. Alejandro and Marianna were the best support to our large family. We wanted to take them home... wonderful! The "coco con queso" was exquisite and baked fresh daily.

The house is beautiful, view exciting, staff friendly, and location ideal. Keep a look out for sea lions, turtles, and eagle rays while sitting on the deck. The bird watching is spectacular; a lone frigate bird sits on the post in front. A great experience. Highly recommended.

I came with 9 members of my family ranging from 8 to 75 years old. Great fun was had by all! We could do as little or as much as we liked. The villa caretaker was very helpful in arranging trips for us. The staff spoke only a little English, but we managed. Everything they cooked was superb! The villa...

From the moment I laid eyes upon Casa La Iguana I knew that I was going to have the perfect vacation. I travelled with a bunch of lifetime friends and we rented the house for a week. We were all impressed by the décor in each room and the villa in general. It was very luxurious. We made full use...
