About Gaby and Juan Carlos

We live by the beach , I work at the Galapagos islands half of the year as a naturalist, I need to be always in contact with nature, so we built some properties by the beach to be able to escape from the city. I am a science teacher too. My husband is a chef and he enjoys cooking for our family and friend in our local restaurant.

Gaby and Juan Carlos purchased this house in 2008

Why Gaby and Juan Carlos chose Playas

I came to this area for summer vacations when I was a kid, and a promised myself I was going to live in contact with nature as an adult. We are happy living and working here.

What makes this house unique

It is an ideal place to rest, you are 100 % in contact with nature.

Wonderful Family Vacation for Nature Lovers

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself, and our 3 children stayed in this charming home for 4 nights. We had a wonderful time and did not want to leave. We were Americans travelling to Ecuador for the first time. Maria (the owner) speaks excellent English and this was such a comfort to us. In the nearby town there are not a lot of people who speak English and Maria helped me get groceries for my family, as I was a little intimidated on our first day in town. Juan Carlos (Maria's husband) is an excellent cook and we dined in the beautiful outdoor dining area each night of our stay. He made us great pasta, seafood, and an excellent Thai dish with coconut milk and a little heat (spice). The grounds around the house are beautiful and the swimming pool is very nice. Our children enjoyed the beach, pool, swings, hammocks and play areas. The foliage is mature, lush, and beautiful, so if you are a nature lover you will be right at home. Do come equipped with bug spray as the mosquitos are abundant along the coast. Our family now considers Maria and Juan Carlos friends. We have just begun to explore Ecuador and we will see them again on our next trip.

Paradise

My husband, my daughter and granddaughter spent 6 weeks in el Jardin. We fell in love with the location, the beach, the beautiful gardens and Maria and JuanCarlos. We were well taken care of, we enjoyed the sounds of the surf and the birdsong. It was amazing. I am looking forward to coming back!

Great people,great location

  • 5 of 5

I am in Ecuador at el Jardín. They are very accommodating here . It is very peaceful, you are within a couple minutes walk to the beach. They are also open to families. They have playground equipment for the children. There is a restaurant here and the chef is the owner's husband. The owner is a level 3 Galapagos guide so is very helpful with any questions you will have about tours. The property is 12 km from playas, but that is not a problem because you can catch the bus for .40 to go there. I am a single woman 58 and feel very safe here. Thank you Maria and Juan Carlos.

Our stay at EL JARDIN was a most memorable experience, the owners are kind, honest and most helpful. Maria speaks three languages, her husband Juan Carlos, very nice and excellent chef. { try his seafood rosoto }. Looking forward to another trip to Ecuador. They made my first trip to a foreign country very comfortable. Hope they will take me up on my offer to visit my home in oregon...

It is a paradise !

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for 1 week, we are a retired couple. The owners are very helpful and friendly , and the place is far away from the noisy town. the sunsets are just like the one in the picture. Besides enjoying our free time we sailed to nice island close by to see beautiful marine birds and playful dolphins.The owner is a great cheff so when we wanted to have extra time to relax and relax he cooked great sea and italian food. I defenitely recommend this place for my family and friends.
