“Couldn't ask for a better experience!”
Reviewed August 11, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Even before our arrival, Ximena was busy helping us arrange transportation to her perfect beach house. She is very prompt with all communications, and even sent a helper to Baltra for us to make sure we got to the speedboat on time. When we docked on Isabela, we met the amazing Edgar after we got off the boat, who will become your personal host and new best friend rolled into one. He helped us (husband, wife, 2 young girls) get settled at the house, then showed us around town, and even accompanied me grocery shopping to make sure we were set for the first night. He swung by EVERY DAY of our 10 night stay to see if we needed help, recommendations, absolutely anything. He even loaned me a sweatshirt when the weather turned stormy after hearing I was going snorkeling. He also rode in the back of our pickup truck taxi with his bike when it was time to go to the Isabela airport, just to make sure the flight was running on time and we got checked in smoothly. I own a vacation rental myself, and while my property manager is great, she's no Edgar! His work ethic and genuine quest for guest satisfaction is top-rate. The property itself is beautiful and perfectly suited for any adventure or lack of adventure you desire: walking distance to everything, or just leave the doors open and nap on the couch with the sweet ocean breeze blowing in. Even if you are not particularly mobile, you will still see lots of wildlife right from the house's windows! It was honestly difficult to leave and we feel grateful for our time spent at this house. Thanks, Edgar and Ximena!

“The absolute best place in Isabela”
Reviewed July 6, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Our stay was fantastic. We walked most of Puerto Villamil and I don’t believe there is a better situated rental. The view was spectacular. We would open the double glass doors as soon as we would get back to let the cool ocean breeze in. We even slept with the sliding glass doors open on the second floor. We have never slept so well. The wood deck out front was so relaxing with loungers. It was close to all the restaurants, cafes, and even a bakery.

I could not write a review without mentioning Edgar! We was great. He met us at the dock and helped with all our tours and arrangements. He would come by often to check on us to see if we needed anything. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Just like having your own concierge. Ximena was also very quick to respond to all our questions.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone and I would definitely stay here again. Take my advice and stay in mi playa. You will not be disappointed.

“Best place on the island!”

We loved our stay at Mi Playa! The view from the main room is incredible and it gets even better in the 2nd floor bedrooms! This is a new place, the adjoining apartment isn't quite finished, so everything is in excellent shape. Edgar is always available to explain, or to arrange anything for you. From greeting you, to locating lost luggage, to table reservations, to extra care for one who was under the weather, he did it all! You couldn't have a better host! If you want to have more independence than in a hotel room, this is the place for you! The most beautiful beach and water is just outside the door. Our favorite restaurant, the Booby Trap, was just steps away...too convenient!

Ximena and Edgar couldn't have been more conscientious toward their guests and provided us with a perfect setting to make whatever we wanted with our vacation. We appreciated the washer and dryer, and the absence of air-conditioning was not a problem with the apartment's access to the breeze.

“Paradise Found”
Reviewed February 5, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Absolutely the only place you want to stay in Isabela. Beautiful house, fully furnished and equipped, lovely amenities. They thought of every detail. If I could, I would have stayed forever. Away from the noise and the traffic. The only thing you hear at night is the sound of the ocean.

“Perfect place to stay in Isabela”
Reviewed December 12, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Staying at Mi Playa was one of the highlights of our Galapagos trip. Beautifully designed beach apartment, with the beach at the doorstep, it was in every way perfect for our family of 4. The apartment/kitchen was well-equipped and the beds were super comfortable. Ximena and Edgar were extremely helpful in every step of the way (from pre-booking, to our stay, and then post-stay). They went out of their way to make sure we had a comfortable stay and postive experience. My kids loved the apartment and the island so much that they want us to move there. How I wish it was just that easy. I highly recommend this vacation rental and if our travels bring us back to Isabela someday in the future, we would definetly be staying at Mi Playa again!

“Perfection - Don't look any further. Stay here.”
Reviewed May 26, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Some girlfriends and I stayed here at the conclusion of a 3 week trip to Peru and Ecuador. We were VERY active the first 2 weeks and wanted to laid back, relaxing place to call home before returning to real life. La Playa looks EXACTLY like the pictures. Beds are comfy, restrooms are perfect, and the location cannot be beat. Ximena, the owner, and Edgar, her right-hand man, are delightful, knowledgeable, and very helpful. If we come back to Galapagos, there is no doubt we will stay here again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. It is perfection. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Very nice condo on the beach near restaurants and walk to the tortoise breeding facility. See marine iguanas and flamingos every morning. Walk to snorkeling. Clean and modern. Good deal for the $
