Blissful nature, island style
Our Guest House “Jean's Home” was named in memory of Jean Blaha, an American from New York who settled on the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador, in the early 70's. Jean was the one who built the original house with her own hands, lavarock by lavarock. In those days life was much harder on the Galapagos, as people were still deprived from basic facilities, such as electricity and running water.
Today our ecofriendly Guest House consists of six ample bedrooms (each one with it's own private bathroom), a livingroom and a fully-equipped kitchen. It is located on Punta Estrada (Point “Estrada”), a small neighbourhood with aprox. 30 families. The only way to reach the Point is by water-taxi (about 5 minutes from the main town), as no roads have been built so far, and all paths are pedestrian.
EXPLORE THE GROUNDS
Explore Punta Estrada
Punta Estrada is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Puerto Ayora. The neighbourhood has pedestrian paths, no cars or streets for vehicles, which makes it a very quiet and safe neighbourhood to explore. Here you will find the well-known Los Alemanes beach and the road that leads to Las Grietas, a natural lava formation that surprises for its beauty.
