Interaction with Guests
We usually give our guests a map and a run-down of where to find local goods and services. We can also give advice on tours, trekking, rock-climbing and mountaineering.
Location is ideal for visitors, in that all every day needs can be met within a two or three block radius, including banks, a supermarket, green grocers, wine stores, a health food shop and an excellent ice-cream parlour. It is also only a few blocks from the street of Aristedes Villanueva, Mendozas main wining and dining axis in the evenings, with a number of brew pubs, travel agents etc. It is also only two blocks from Mendoza's largest park, which is endowed with an artificial lake and is a magnet for locals to exercise or hang-out. The city centre is also within walking distance or a quick taxi or bus ride.
The house is a 20-30 min taxi ride from the airport (cost around $USD10) or 10-15mins from the bus terminal. It does not have off-street parking, but guests usually park on the well-lit and well transited street outside. Public transport is readily available by buses at stops within a block of the house or by using inexpensive taxis, which can be readily hailed on the street or called by phone (typically arriving within 5 mins)

We had a pleasant short stay in Mendoza. Colin's place was ideal. all the necessary stores are conveniently close. The apartment was very comfortable and warm. San Martin Park is minutes away. Downtown is a pleasant walk or a short taxi ride. Colin has prepared detailed guides to the area, which include many hiking and camping guides as well as the regular tours. If you're interested in outdoor activities, I'd recommend contacting him.
La casa cuenta con todos los equipamientos necesarios.
Si bien, no esta contigua al centro, la ubicación es muy buena, y se accede a todas partes con bastante facilidad.
Colin se porto muy bien, nos recibió en la entrada de la casa en el momento de nuestra llegada.
Fantastic host, fantastic apartment!!
Colin was great from start to finish, and even made himself available for an early arrival.
The apartment is in as great location, and has everything you could possibly need for cooking food, washing clothes etc!! I would have no problem whatsoever recommending Colin and his apartment.
Thanks for everything Colin!
Fantastic host, very accommodating particularly as we were delayed but Colin let my son and his wife into the apartment early as they were already in Menodoza. The apartment is superb value, ideally situated for the town centre and restaurants. Lovely little courtyard. Colin was also extremely flexible when my son asked to stay at the apartment later on the day of our departure. A massive thank you to Colin for everything.
What can we say other than what a fantastic apartment and host. Colin went out of his way to help us on arrival. We were delayed arriving but Colin let my son and wife into the apartment early as they were already in Mendoza. The apartment is huge and is in an excellent location for the town centre, restaurants and bars. We all felt totally secure. All of the amenities in the apartment were top class and we wanted for nothing. An excellent supermarket is just up the road so we were able to stock up on some essentials. It is difficult to find anything to criticise and we would highly recommend this apartment to anyone travelling to Mendoza, it was also excellent value. Thank you Colin and we are sure you will have many many more satisfied visitors. Best wishes John and Tisha (UK)
Colin and Andrea were amazing! made us feel very conformable. The house was perfect for what we were looking for, it is located in a great location, a few minutes walk from Parque San Martin, from the bar/restourant area and supermarkets.
Colin and his wife were are very nice and helpful people. When we pointet out some things that were missing, they responded promptly.
About the Host, Colin
I enjoy trekking, rock-climbing and mountaineering and have travelled to many parts of the world to undertake these activities, in particular I like the Himalayas, Karakoram and Andes. I also read a lot of modern literature and paint landscape in oils. I enjoy exotic foods, especially spicy Asian dishes, but when travelling a while I always start to miss the Argentine asado and Malbec red wine from Mendoza.
