Description from the owner
The Galeodan Penthouse Suite occupies the entire 3rd floor of Galeodan’s office & home. With windows on all sides, it commands a spectacular view over the port of Puerto Baquerizo Moreno and the Pacific 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 muelles (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.
Galeodan Penthouse Suite, San Cristobal, Galapagos
San Cristobal, Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
Additional Location Information
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 (200 miles north and accessible only by cruise).
While the acknowledged destination of choice for surfers, fishermen and divers, San Cristobal is still overlooked by the the major tour operators and average tourist. San Cristobal is the Galapagos' best kept secret.
The Galeodan Penthouse is in a private residential neighbourhood looking across at the bay and Pacific Ocean. It's a lot closer to the water than appears on the TripAdvisor FlipKey maps (which do not show the bay). It is only a 5 minute walk, along the malecon, to the town centre and 2 minutes to Playa Man, the best of several beaches in the vicinity.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Era primera vez que iba a Galapagos y la verdad como no conocía mucho todo lo busque por internet, así fue que me dieron el dato de María Elena quien me ofreció este penthouse. Es al lado de todo, a 7 minutos a pie ya estás al lado del muelle, de la playa o bien de la ciudad.
La limpieza del lugar es perfecta, tiene de todo para poder cocinar si se quisiera, las comodidades están bien resueltas.
El lugar es bien amplio y con una completa privacidad.
La vista da directamente al muelle por lo que los amaneceres y atardeceres se hacen dignos de ver.
Volvería a arrendar ahí?, sin ninguna duda.

An Incredible Stay!
My husband and I spent a week at the Galeodan Penthouse Suite for our honeymoon and had an incredible time! Maria Elena was extremely helpful and treated us as if we were a part of the family. We spent most days waking up to the incredible view of the sunrise, going out surfing with Julio, spending the afternoon adventuring around the trails and beaches, then ending the night with drinks on the patio watching the sunset. Maria Elena arranged a couple of day tours for us to Isla Lobos and The Highlands. I highly recommend both! Again, I cannot say enough good things about our stay and the Keegan's hospitality. I recommend the penthouse for any type of vacation and any length of stay! You won't regret it!
An unforgettable trip on San Cristobal!
Where do I start? The Galeondan Penthouse Suite in San Cristobal is quite a lovely place to stay while visiting the island. It is newly built, with many modern features including, a full kitchen, air conditioning, and comfortable beds. Sean and Maria Elena are wonderful people and hosts that do everything in their power to make sure that you have everything you need and that you are completely satisfied during your stay. They prepare breakfast for you every morning and bring it you your room, where you can sit out on the balcony and enjoy the gorgeous views over looking the harbor. All of the shops and restaurants are in walking distance from the Penthouse and if you decide to take a taxi, one can be hailed for only one U.S. Dollar. I would highly recommend Galeondan Penthouse Suite to any travelers that are heading to San Cristobal in the near future. In my opinion, you cannot ask for better!
The view from this suite will create a lasting memory of the Gal
I booked this suite last minute and did not have the opportunity to shop elsewhere but it turned out to be a blessing. Sean and MariaElena helped to make my trip to the island so relaxing from the start. I was there by myself for most of the time with my daughter joining me the last day. The suite is so spacious-plenty of space for a family of 4 or 5. The view is spectacular and I know Sean is in the process of adding a hammock so you can also appreciate the great breeze that comes across the porch. I loved being just a bit away from town so it was quiet and yet an easy walk to town. I would walk in for breakfast, head to one of the beaches close by and then be back in town for the evening. I felt very safe and enjoyed the surrounding area.
Sunrise from bed, sunset from the deck - oh, the view!
Yes, the bed was comfortable. Yes, everything was squeaky clean. Yes, Sean (owner) was kind and informative.
However, the true killer feature of this gem is the view. Sunrise was a spectacular gift of nature we appreciated from bed, and sunset was equally enjoyable from the large deck with panoramic view. (There are curtains and the like, but if you use them you'll be missing out!) You can see the deck from almost anywhere in town because at 3 stories it is one of the tallest structures around. You're a couple minutes walking away from town so it's plenty private.
The family lives on the 2nd floor (below) and the construction and maintenance of the property shows the love and care of a happy and inviting home. This is a hotel quality experience with the intimacy and privacy of a B&B.; Everything was brand new as of april 2013. Sean was easy to communicate with via email and arranged everything for us extremely last minute. We stayed in a couple of different places on several different islands in the Galapagos and this was the nicest!
