We stayed at Maytenus (Blue house) for 3 nights in the 3 bedroom unit. The place is spacious, safe, quite and comfortable. Patricia and Pablo were very kind and very accommodating to all our requests and also very helpful with the area. This place is only about 15 mins walking distance to Charles Darwin Research Station or into town. If you prefer taking taxi, it's convenient and only $1.50 flat fee to/from anywhere in the area. This place is like home away from home.

We had a wonderful stay here. Patricia and Washington, the owners, are just lovely and they make you feel like home. They made sure to give us privacy but they were always available when we needed help. The first good sign that it was going to be a great stay was a message that we received a couple of days before departure with instructions for how to get from the airport to the property. They were detailed, helpful and precise, and put our mind at ease. They also helped us during our stay with arranging trips and calling taxis for us. The property is charming, clean and cosy. We spent our evenings on the terrace, relaxing and having a chat around the fake fireplace. The yard was full of lovely flowers and very well kept. We had a one bedroom apartment, very spacious, with a kitchenette that we never actually used, but it was there if we wanted to. Overall, if we ever go back to Isla Baltra we'll surely be staying again at Maytenus.

The owners, Patricia and Washington (his handsome paintings decorated the walls and other areas), were delightful! They were always smiling and pleasant, offered great suggestions of things to do, and generally made me feel at home. The studio apartment was spacious and comfortable (though not one of the recently remodeled ones). The full breakfast included in the price (despite the apartment having a kitchenette) was very welcome and served in the caney with tables, cozy seating around a fireplace, and Jacuzzi/hot tub. It is in a very quiet residential area, but just a 10-15 walk to the Charles Darwin Scientific Station in one direction and the downtown/waterfront in the other direction. Very convenient and an excellent value!
