About this listing
The Galeodan Penthouse Suite occupies the entire top floor of Casa de Huespedes: Jardin de Helena (Helena's Garden), in a quiet residential neighborhood on the outskirts of town, just 5 minutes’ walk from the center and 2 blocks from San Cristobal’s most popular public beach: Playa Mann.
With windows on all sides and a private wrap-around terrace, the Galeodan Penthouse Suite 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 come and go and in the evening, you can enjoy the spectacular sunsets from your king-size bed or from your private patio.
The Penthouse can comfortably accommodate 3 guests and if the 3rd guest is a child, under 12 years of age, we will deduct the 3rd person charge.
With a fully equipped kitchenette, you are as independent as you want to be and we stock the suite with all the cooking essentials plus ingredients for a healthy in-room breakfast.
Guests have the entire top floor to themselves but birdwatchers in particular may enjoy exploring the 7 undeveloped acres of Helena’s Garden.
