“Lovely accommodations”
Reviewed 6 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

Our family of 6 - 2 adults and 4 children ( ages 7, 10, 11 and 12) stayed in the 3 storey home. It was clean, well outfitted, spacious, and very accommodating with a full bathroom on each floor. Ximena was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. She called us taxis and called our day-tour companies twice to confirm the pick-up times. The kids had a great time swimming in the pool in the evenings, lounging on all of the floors, and watching television (they’re fluent in Spanish; the tv is Spanish only and I couldn’t find any stations with sub-titles for myself and my husband!). The kitchen is completely outfitted and has a large fridge. My only suggestion for Charles would be to add additional lighting in the kitchen as in the evening it is a tad dark but obviously we managed. The cottages are safe and secure, a gated small community comprising the four homes. It’s in a great location and we had an absolutely wonderful stay! Perfect.

“Lovely Bungalows”
Reviewed 15 January 2015 for a stay in November 2014

We stayed 7 nights in one of Charly's cottages. It was wonderful. The buildings are very spacious and extremely clean. A maid comes everyday and takes care of everything. We stayed in a two storey cottage and each of us had her own bathroom. The kitchen provides everything you need to cook. The centre of the compound is the pool which provides for a great place to relax. Another big advantage is the proximity to the trail to Tortuga Bay. It's really the nicest beach around and it's a great opportunity to go for a run. I also enjoyed the fact that it is located in the more quiet area of the town, still it's only 10 minutes walk to all the restaurant and shops. On top Charly and the whole family are super helpful and concerned about the well-being of their guest. I can highly recommend to stay there.

“Best rental in Puerto Ayora”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We loved our stay at the Galapagos Cottages. Jorge and Charley we great help and we promise ourselves to come back.
The cottages are very nicely designed, perfectly located on the outskirt of Puerto Ayora, the last house on the way to Tortuga Bay, 2,5km away. restaurants are just two blocks away.
We highly recommend this place.
