Villa Galapagos 1 is a charming seaside villa with the character, comfort and class reminiscent of a European home in Tuscany. Characterized by classic island architecture, the villa is situated in Puerto Ayora on Santa Cruz with a dramatic view to the island’s volcano. The villa is a labyrinth of beauty and elegance with five spacious bedrooms, all equipped with an ocean front terrace, two sweeping living rooms and the luxury amenities of a swimming pool, jacuzzi and outdoor BBQ for al fresco dining. Relax in poolside loungers, lose yourself a book while swaying gently in the hammock, or kick back on the plush terrace sofas after an adventurous day of exploration. This unique and private villa caters to the most discerning travelers, allowing you to explore the Enchanted Islands at your leisure and in a true “home away from home”.


The villa is located in a strategic area that allows you to visit the same islands you would experience by boat, but to see and do much more than a traditional yacht excursion allows. Experience diverse wildlife by day and return to a gourmet meal on your seaside terrace, just in time to experience a breathtaking sunset or soak in the jacuzzi with a cocktail. Villa Amarilla is ideal for active families and groups interested in personalizing activities at their own pace. From your luxurious home base, experience the magic of the Galapagos with daily excursions such as snorkeling, diving, surfing, hiking, kayaking, catch and release fishing and horse riding.


Included in your stay at Villa Galapagos 1 are an in-home chef, maid and caretaker. Alejandro and Mariana will make you feel at home and share an authentic experience of local specialties. Mariana is a magician in the kitchen and can specialize in Ecuadorian or International food while Alejandro, the concierge of the villa, will help you will all logistics in the Puerto Ayora town with genuine local knowledge and a beaming smile. Your exclusive guide caters to your specific interests, allowing you the flexibility to modify your adventure according to group desires. It is the perfect balance between exciting activities like diving, hiking to the top of the volcano, cabling down one of the lava tunnels or swimming with penguins, and relaxation time in true decadence.
