4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Puerto Ayora, Santa Cruz, Galapagos Islands
Mimosa is a superb 10-person villa in the exclusive Punta Estrada side of Puerto Ayora. This house is snugly positioned two-minutes walk away from the port, the beach and two of the best restaurants in town. Walking is the only way in the vicinity as there are no roads and hence, no traffic. The only way to reach this neighborhood is to take a 5-minute water taxi ride from the busier Puerto Ayora.

After ten years of successfully letting out our home, ‘The Cactuspad’, (see the reviews on our Flipkey listing), we decided to move back in. This left us with a great demand for the renowned service we’ve provided, and the logical next step in taking on a new rental!

We just finished a week staying at Mimosa on Puerto Ayora, We had a group of 20 somethings to seniors and all agreed it is one of our best trips.

Our stay at Mimosa was fantastic! Paul arranged a driver to meet us at the airport and bring us to Mimosa. Which we found to be a very helpful and stress free after a long day of travel. When we arrived into Puerto Ayora we were met by the house manager who escorted us to Mimosa. He was very nice...

We loved staying here, the house is lovely and spacious and we loved the ease of each having our own ensuite. Their is an upmarket restaurant a few metres away or you can take the 5 min water taxi to the main strip of restaurants. We enjoyed the 15 min walk to Las Griegas and the gorgeous views.
