Mimosa is a superb 10-person villa in the exclusive Punta Estrada side of Puerto Ayora. This house is snugly positioned two-minutes walk away from the port, the beach and two of the best restaurants in town. Walking is the only way in the vicinity as there are no roads and hence, no traffic. The only way to reach this neighborhood is to take a 5-minute water taxi ride from the busier Puerto Ayora. After four years of successfully letting out our home, ‘The Cactuspad’, (see the reviews on our Flipkey listing), we decided to move back in. This left us with a great demand for the renowned service we’ve provided, and the logical next step in taking on a new rental! We are thrilled with Mimosa due to its superiority, comfort, attention to detail and fine housekeeper who keeps the place looking like new! She visits 3 times a week but for an additional $5/hour, she could come daily. With a pleasant sea-breeze, views over the ocean, four huge, comfortable, on-suite rooms, this recently converted bed & breakfast is ideal for a couple of families looking for a beach vacation in the tourist capital of Galapagos! With its dedicated housekeeper, you can relax and enjoy an idyllic, self-catering vacation without the hassles of house maintenance. We charge a minimum for one week ($2,000) unless gaps are available, and you can start on any day of the week if there is availability. Please enquire after additional nights which are charged at $286/night. For periods of less than a week, we have a $400/night rate, minimum 3 nights. We have a travel agency called Galapex, and can help you sort out the flights from the mainland if you wish. This is sometimes tricky to organize from outside of Ecuador! We also work out tours in Galapagos and Ecuador with a great insight into the cruises, being naturalist guides ourselves. In addition to Mimosa, we are also renting Orchidea: a 2-bedroom condo in the other part of town! Please ask for details. We hope you enjoy Mimosa, an affordable, brilliant alternative to the traditional cruises of Galapagos.
