Casa La Iguana - Galapagos waterfront luxury villa
average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews

Casa la Iguana was exquisite! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa, every bit of it!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment our water taxi pulled up to the steps of the villa, we knew we were in for an unforgettable stay at Casa La Iguana! And we were only beginning to realize the charm of this unique setting. The ten of us spent the next three days relaxing amidst the amenities on site . . . the pool, spa, patios, and hammocks were amazing! Likewise, the entire house was so accommodating. The furnishings were beautiful, and the bedrooms/bathrooms so well decorated and spacious, giving each couple plenty of room as we settled in for our three days of heaven on earth! Although we spent lots of time exploring the remarkable Galapagos Islands, we always looked forward to returning to the villa!

The beauty of this home, situated in a breathtakingly stunning spot, was enhanced by the warmth of Juan, Marianna, Esperanza, and Alejandro. We were so spoiled by their hospitality and gracious care! Whether it was tending to our laundry or preparing our meals, the group treated us like family. Huge compliments to Juan for his excellent correspondence with us as we prepared for the the trip, as well as his attentive guidance while we were there. The ten of us couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable visit . . . we hit the jackpot by staying at Casa La Iguana!

An experience we will never forget

  • 5 of 5

I can not begin to describe how wonderful the experience of Casa La Iguana was. From the moment we arrived we were awestruck at the beauty of the house and its surroundings. The first thing we did was jump off the steps into the beautiful blue crystal clear water. Alejandro and Mariana were wonderful. They met our needs before we knew we had any. By weeks end we felt we had new friends. Alejandro was instrumental in getting us the excursions we were interested in and so much more. Mariana is a fabulous cook/chef. Everything she made was so tasty. Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home.

Exquisite family home and gracious hospitality.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 13 loved our stay at this beautiful family home. The villa is spacious and exquisitely decorated with large rooms and spaces indoors and out. Juan welcomed us to his families' lovely home and played a key role in planning our amazing 8 night stay. Juan and the staff, Alejandro. Mariana and Aurora cared for us in every way possible from arranging transfers and tours, to hiring a naturalist, suggesting yachts to hire for private tours, shopping daily for the freshest of foods, and doing laundry. We were spoiled with delicious meals every day, enjoying the beautiful waterfront, walking in the nature preserve, getting to know Ramona and other birds who visit daily, panga rides to and from town, day tours to other islands and the Highlands. We are thankful to the Altgelt family for opening their lovely home and to Juan and the staff for their service, hospitality and friendship. I highly recommend a stay at Casa La Iguana. You won't want to leave.

Remarkable experience in a luxury home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at the Casa La Iguana and we loved it!!! The house is right on the water, with an exquisite decoration, and it is very comfortable with 5 rooms with bathrooms en suite.

It also has beautiful views of the ocean and marina, outdoors jacuzzi and pool, and steps that go straight into the ocean where we would swim everyday and from where you could see all kinds of marine life.

Located very near the port by water taxi and a short stroll to "las grietas", and close to all the diving shops, restaurants and bars.

But above it all there is The staff (which is the best part) Alejandro, Mariana and Aurora would cook for our family everyday so we were spoiled with delicious breakfasts, lunchs and dinners, and we were able to eat plenty every day in the privacy of the home with our family. They also helped us to arrange some tours and general information on what to do and where to go.

Thank you Alejandro, Mariana and Aurora!!! You made our stay a truly remarkable experience.
