San Cristobal, Galapagos Islands
The Galeodan Penthouse Suite of Casa de Huespedes: Jardin de Helena (Helena’s Garden) occupies the entire third floor of the Galeodan building above the Galeodan office and home of the owners: Maria Elena and Sean. With windows on all sides, it commands a spectacular view over the port of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno and the Pacific Ocean. At day-break, you can watch the sun rise over the hills of San Cristóbal. Through the day you can watch the boats and people come and go along the malecon (boardwalk) and from the passenger and fishing muellés (piers). In the evening, you can enjoy the spectacular sunsets from your king-size bed or from your private patio.

The Penthouse features a king size bed and a couch-bed so, while perfect for honeymooners, it can comfortably accommodate a family with child.

There are several good restaurants within...

We enjoyed our stay at this clean, comfortable place. It has spectacular views of the sunset. It was easy to walk to the downtown. Our hosts went out of their way to help us, including bringing in my laundry. We loved staying there.

Management response:

Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure for us to meet you and your family.
