About this listing

Spacious and well lighted room for 1 to 3 people in big old traditional house from 1915 in Cerro Artillería, Valparaíso.
For people of young spirit (old house in constant repairing, except when guests are here)

The space

We have big beautiful rooms in an old, classic house of Valparaiso, built in 1915, with an unique charm, maybe cause it's old and in need of some repairs, but with lovely wide rooms, detailed walls and a beautiful view to the bay and boats, perfect for watching the fireworks of New Year's Eve.

There are 4 rooms available for guests, big and well lighted, single or double, with 2 bathrooms exclusive for guests (one on the first floor and one on the second floor).

You have full access to the kitchen and all the equipment of the house (washing machine, have a nice barbecue in the back yard, etc)

This place is very well connected to the city, with public transport at the door and it's perfect for exploring the city afoot and quickly reach the center, where you can find banks, shops, cultural centers, eat at different restaurants, learn about the culture of the city, and take a trip to the port or boat ride to see the bay.

The neighborhood it's mainly residential, with grocery shops close by, and well known to be a perfect place for students to stay, since there are many Universities in the area.

And a little about ourselves...
We are a young couple that inherited this big house. My partner Benjamin is an Art teacher, and I (Javiera) am a Graphic Designer and also a jeweler in my free time. We're very calm and friendly, we like to respect our guests privacy but also willing to share and help them in whatever they need.

Kitchen, dining room, back yard, and all common areas in general.

House Rules

You can bring guests from 9:30 am to midnight.
We provide a copy of our house keys to come and go as pleased.
We also provide a clean room and clean bed sheets and towels, which depending on how long is the stay will be replaced weekly. To people who stay for more than 1 month we give the extra set of bed sheets and towels, so keeping the room clean and changing the bed sheets it's left for the guest to do, as well as contributing to keep the house clean and organized by cleaning after cooking and/or using dishes, etc. (and this last thing is the same for shorter stay).

House economy is also very important, like taking short showers and disconnecting phone and computer plugs when they are charged.

We recycle, so ask where you can put plastic, metal, glass and organic waste in the house to help us with that (something sadly not very common in Valparaíso).

We have two dogs that are always wandering around the house, they are very playful and friendly. But when guests arrive we can leave them at the back yard if required so it's no trouble at all. (Most of the time people love them and accept them so we don't have to change their habits).

Finally, this is a home, not an hotel nor hostel, we love sharing with travelers and it's very common that we share at least one night with nice chilean wine to talk, share experiences and recommend places to visit.

I initially booked for a month as a first base while I found my feet in Valparaíso, but ended up extending my booking for the full three months that I was in Chile. I have nothing but positive comments about Benjamin and Javiera, they made me feel completely at home in their beautiful house and were always on hand for advice and assistance. The other housemates made a lovely, convivial atmosphere and I loved spending some evenings together cooking and talking. I cannot recommend this listing highly enough!

Javiera and Benjamin are fantastic. She gave me very detailed directions and they were extremely welcoming. I wasn't in a great mood and I am also very shy, so I didn't socialize with them. However, I can tell that they are lovely! The room is huge and beautiful. Their dog is sweet and friendly. Speaking of dogs, there are a lot of barking dogs in Valpo, so bring ear plugs and you will be set! There is a bus right outside the apartment. You will enjoy your stay with Javiera and Benjamin!

Javiera and Benjamin are great, experienced AirBnB hosts. Benjamin kindly picked me up from the bus station, helped with laundry, and both Javiera and Benjamin were very helpful with any questions I had about Valparaíso. We also spent friendly time together watching the Copa America, cooking, drinking wine, playing cards, watching movies... Benjamin is also an art teacher and is often willing to help you start a project in painting or printmaking (I made a couple of woodcuts). The dogs Lucas and Mocha are both really sweet! I liked the location of this house in Playa Ancha, since you can easily walk to Plaza Sotomayor in about 15 minutes (there are also several bus lines that pass right in front of the house). The Playa Ancha neighborhood is also cool, with its own restaurants and cafes. Javiera's house is a huge, grand, old colonial giant in need of some repairs, not the cleanest (I didn't mind), but still an interesting place to stay and VERY affordable, lots of space – the upstairs room has a great view of the port, but the downstairs room by the front door can be a bit noisy with the buses going by. The house gets cold in the winter months, but they will provide you with a gas heater if you need one. Another nice thing about the place was since I stayed for a month, I got to meet some other travelers. Went to two Copa America games with one of them, at the local stadium (walking distance!) and cooked an Indian dinner for the group. These community experiences make Air BnB fun! I recommend this property mostly for easy-going, younger travelers on a budget, who are flexible and don't mind a little bit of the unexpected. The atmosphere and hosts are great – I hope to return in September :-)

The room was very large, with an amazing view. The internet worked and was reasonably fast. The location is good (just at the top of the fernicular railway) Javiera and her boyfriend were really friendly and helpful.

I have stayed two nights at this 100-year old house. The room is very clean and spacious. The harbor view from the dining room is great. It is such a special and pleasant experience. Definitely recommend!
