San Cristobal apartment description

The Galeodan Penthouse Suite occupies the entire 3rd floor of Galeodan’s office & home. With windows on all sides, it overlooks the town, the port and the ocean. At day-break, you can watch the sun rise over the hills of San Cristobal. Through the day you can watch the boats and people come and go along the malecon (boardwalk) and from the passenger and fishing muell?s (piers). In the evening, you can enjoy the spectacular sunsets from your king-size bed or from your private patio as you dine on the catch-of-the-day which you have just prepared in the fully equipped kitchenette.

With one king-size bed and one double, the Penthouse Suite accommodates one couple or a couple with child.

The 3 piece bathroom and fully equipped kitchen have gas-heated water.

You can lie back on the spacious patio in or out of the sun in a hammock or on loungers.

              Car: Not Necessary

              The Galapagos Islands are famous for

              • Fascinating and fearless creatures found nowhere else on Earth;

              • Out of this world landscapes;

              • Crystal waters, teeming with life;

              • World renowned diving destinations;

              • World-class surf and;

              • Fantastic Fishing ;

              Puerto Baquerizo Moreno (San Cristobal's main port) is the provincial capital and seat of local government - It features the province's best hospital, an airport right on the edge of town and the archipelago's only naturally occurring fresh water. At the same time it is unspoilt, with crystal clear waters and public access along the entire waterfront.

              San Cristobal offers the archipelago's best surf, all the best offshore fishing banks and the best diving south of Darwin and Wolf islands (which are 200 miles north and accessible only by cruise).

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: Maria Elena’s mother is from Santa Cruz and her father from San Cristobal, where he is still an active fisherman. Both sides of the family have deep roots in the Galapagos. Maria Elena grew up and worked in the Galapagos before leaving to Canada to further her education and outlook. Sean was raised in various parts of Africa while schooling in England. Sean is a professional Civil Engineer and has spent over 35 years in construction, including 25 years in Canada, the last 15 of which have been in his own consulting business. Maria Elena and Sean met in Canada, shortly before Maria Elena accepted an IT posting in Bermuda. Maria Elena and Sean were married in Bermuda and their two sons, who were born in Canada, now enjoy Canadian, Irish and Ecuadorian citizenship. The Keegan family has been visiting Galapagos regularly since 1996 and moved permanently to San Cristobal in January, 2009.

              Why the Owner Chose San Cristobal:
              The Galeodan Penthouse Suite is located in a private residential neighborhood, overlooking the bay. It is halfway between the main port and several of the areas most popular attractions, including the Interpretation Centre, the beaches (Playa Man; Punta Carola) and the Tijeretas (lookout and bay). Everything is within a few minutes walk.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              The Galeodan Penthouse Suite offers unparallelled views, space and amenities plus extraordinary value for money.
