'I invite you to explore the myriad wonders of Galapagos' unique eco-system from the comfort of my home. Since first arriving on the islands in 1973, it has been my dream to create a home in this secluded corner of paradise.
Ten years ago this dream became reality and for the past few years I opened the doors to visitors from across the world. Do take a look around this website for a taste of what is in store for you should you choose the Bay House as your base for visiting the islands.'
Furio Valbonesi

On the first floor are two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms complete with bathtub, shower and bidet. There are two bunk beds suitable for children in the lobby that separate the bedrooms.A large terrace overlooks the bay from this floor.
Next to the main house, separated by a small garden is the Guest House with two air conditioned twin bedrooms, each with their own bathroom and shower.
As there are no cars in the neighborhood it is a safe place for children. You can listen to the mockingbirds, Darwin finches and lava gulls all day long.

A stone's throw away from the villa is the famous must-see Guss Angermeyer Museum. The villa is a 5 minute walk from the famous 'German Beach' and only 10 minutes from 'Las Grietas', a water canyon with brackish crystal clear water.

In Puerto Ayora one can visit the Charles Darwin Research Station and the Galapagos National Park Van Strahlen Hall to see the giant tortoises breeding center and land iguanas. Saturday morning sees a wonderful array of local produce on display at the central market in town.
A trip up into the highlands of Santa Cruz, some 20 minutes by taxi from the town of Puerto Ayora, will allow you to see giant tortoises living in the wild, as well as explore the fascinating underground lava tunnels.
Puerto Ayora is where all day tours to the nearby islands start. With Santa Cruz being situated at the center of the archipelago, it offers most activities and excursions to other islands, as well as to the highlands where you can see the Galapagos Tortoises in their natural habitat. Of all the trips, Furio recommends a trip to the fine white sand of Tortuga Bay beach and to Garrapatero beach where you can rent kayaks and enjoy your own BBQ.
