    "Our family of 6 adults stayed 10 days at Furio's Villa and we couldn't be any happier. We wanted to find THE PERFECT getaway to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. Surely, the Galapagos was an all-time best vacation location and Furio's Bay House was THE BEST place to stay on the Islands! From the first contact, Furio was quick to respond and was invaluable, answering all of our many questions and helping us with pre-planning excursions, island transportation, airport arrival, and where to go to find reputable and trusted local shops and services. Furio knows the islands and he knows everyone. There were six of us (Me, my wife and two daughters with their significant others (ages 27-38), and we found Furio's Villa such a warm, comfortable and relaxing getaway on the island. The home is spacious, reminiscent of an old Italian Villa, furnished with Furio's family antiques and collectibles. What you experience is far nicer and richer than the pictures on the website, right down to the Sea Lions and Iguanas on his dock to greet you each morning. Complete with fresh water pool, sauna, hammocks, kayak and his friendly dog "Torranado", it was the perfect home-base for us. I can also recommend Furio's kitchen facilities. Large, spacious and well equipped so we made many meals in that helped stretch our budget. Furio is also the consummate host. One day we returned from an over-night excursion to Isabela Island to find a freshly-baked loaf of bread that he prepared for us. You could not ask for a better host. He generally left us to ourselves and was always available to help and join us when asked. We enjoyed many hours laughing and cooking with Furio in his kitchen - it was just like family. Furio also helped me plan a very special surprise birthday celebration for my wife too. So STOP LOOKING. We all agreed, the entire experience was wonderful and we would return again. This was the affordable alternative to the high-priced resorts and hotels and offered much more than expected for the do-it-yourself adventurer."

  • A perfect home base on Santa Cruz!

    "My husband and I, along with another couple, stayed four nights at the Torre Mar in late May of 2016. Donna and John were terrific from the first contact through finding us the best way back to the Baltra airport. They even arranged for our driver to stop at some of the attractions in the highlands on our way into Puerto Ayora! We found everything to be as advertised. We loved the rooftop terrace for grilling and dining on fresh local seafood or getting to socialize with some of the other guests in the evenings. The views were fantastic! We loved the central, neighborhood location. It was a short walk to Charles Darwin Avenue, a bakery, the Saturday market, the popular outdoor "restaurant street", and the head of the trail to Tortuga Bay! The truck-taxis are certainly abundant, but we enjoyed walking. The beds were very comfortable, and having separate remote controlled air conditioning for each bedroom was a definite plus. For two families with children, both second floor apartments would be a nice setup. We would definitely go back!"
