Islas Galapagos Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
Sleeps 5. 1 Bedroom. 1 Bathroom.
MonteMar hosts the first ecoefficient, high end, modern house in Galapagos. It is the ultimate in off the grid, sustainable living with solar energy and rainwater catchment systems. Enjoy preparing meals with fresh local ingredients in the fully equipped kitchen. MonteMar is a 43 acres farm that is 100% solar, 100% organic and produces and treats its own water and waste.
MonteMar is located in the Giant Tortoise Reserve so from June until December we have tortoises in the wild wondering around the property. Montemar is the perfect family destination, where your family can experience adventure, walk and bike the rural roads, observe the wildlife or just relax and enjoy the view and peaceful environment. It is also a great getaway for honeymooners to enjoy this romantic paradise.
Montemar is also a working farm that utilizes sustainable practices to produce highland Galapagos coffee, fresh eggs, beef, plantains, citrus, avocados, peppers, and papaya. Feel free to inquire and participate in the daily farm activities.
Montemar is located in El Carmen, 14 km from the port of Puerto Ayora which is approximately 15 minutes away via taxi ($7-10). Puerto Ayora is a beautiful seaside town with restaurants, souvenir shops, markets, and the world famous Charles Darwin Research Center.
Amenities include WiFi/transportation to town and daily house keeping which includes clean linens, towels, laundry, and bottled drinking water. Grocery stocking and food preparation services are available upon request at additional costs.
Montemar is a great base to explore the Galapagos Islands. We can arrange visits to the different islands and activities such as snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, fishing, wildlife viewing or customized special requests.
The houses have been designed to permit your rest and relaxation in a private place that is at the same time near natural attractions internationally recognized.

About Reyna Oleas
My husband and I are nature lovers who have explored the Ecuador since we were kids. This is the reason why we have selected our properties in the coolest places. We are a family with two kids of 9 and 11 years old. We are currently living in the Galapagos Islands since our passion for the natural world has taken us to its epicenter. Here we live in the first and only off the grid, carbon neutral house of the Islands. High technology, plus passive architecture has being mixed to bring to life a cool nest. We are proud to share with you our country, which we love and cherish.
Reyna Oleas purchased this farmhouse in 2012
Why Reyna Oleas chose Islas Galapagos
We selected location since we wanted to build our property in the place that we most like. We are both naturalists and nature explorers and Galápagos was the right place to be and contribute to local community.
What makes this farmhouse unique
