A private, secure and convenient location, just 15 minutes from Puerto Ayora town and just 30 minutes from Itabaca Canal, serving Baltra airport, and from where most naturalist day tours leave.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Home away from Home
We stayed at Semilla Verde for 8 nights, with our daughters, during the Easter break.
We loved the Guest House, the owners, the owners' children, and staff.
The food (breakfast, lunch, dinner) was cooked and served with dedication and love.
The rooms are spacious and with beautiful views of the sea and native vegatation.
We loved having the home-grown coffee for breakfast!
Excellent sightseeing advice from Robert, who is an enthusiastic host and tour guide.
We felt like being at home, the guest house having only 5 rooms, and we staying in two of them!
Nice atmosphere when we came across the other guests.
A quaint and relaxing place to stay, if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the town, but yet have quick access to it when you feel like seeing more people, shopping or eating out.
Semilla Verde Lodge- Idyllic Vacation Rental From which to Explo
Our family of four spent 3 idyllic weeks at the Semilla Verde Lodge in the Galapagos Islands. Proprietors, Robert and Daysi Grimstone, made us feel welcome, and gave us expert advice on what to do while we were there. The beautiful, treetop lodge was comfortable, had all the amenities we needed, and afforded spectacular views of the forest, coastline, and its varied wildlife. Our children so enjoyed exploring the property and encountering giant tortoises!
We returned home with many once-in-a-lifetime memories of our experiences in the Galapagos Islands. Many thanks to Robert and Daysi for providing an ideal setting for our family from which to explore the incredible Galapagos Islands! We would definitely like to return some day!
