  • Pablo’s apartment is located in a safe, convenient part of Vina Del Mar. He was mostly available for email communication prior to and during our stay. However, the (website hidden) directions link listed on the check-in package was incorrect and so we were lost for a while looking for the correct apartment. Pablo was not available during check-in and check-out so his mother had to meet us to let us into the apartment. She was very nice but did not speak any English and so we had to rely on my phone’s language translation app to communicate. Unfortunately, the Wi-Fi in the apartment did not work when we arrived at the apartment and we had to search for a restaurant with Wi-Fi in order to email Pablo about this. We found the plumbing in the apartment was not very good, and had to go outside to purchase a plunger at our own expense, which we left in the apartment for future guests. Even though we had booked the apartment for 3 people, there were not enough bath and face towels available for 3 people and we had to wait for Pablo to send us extra. The bathroom light burnt out on our last day in the apartment and we couldn’t find any replacement bulbs in the apartment. The last morning in the apartment we were having breakfast at the coffee table, with several bottles of water and our breakfast plates placed on it. While eating, the entire glass top of the table collapsed and shattered over our feet. Earlier, we had noticed that the bottom shelf of the glass table had already broken previously and a broken glass stub was evident where the shelf used to be. We did not expect the entire tabletop to collapse under normal weight. Luckily, the glass did not cut our feet. We cleaned up as much of the broken glass as possible and informed Pablo immediately of the incident. He did not seem concerned about us, but rather accused us of lying about the circumstances under which the table broke. He said we should pay him $90 US dollars (49,000 Chilean Pesos) for the table. We did not think it was wrong for us to use a coffee table for its purpose as a coffee table. He left it to us to decide whether or not we felt we should pay. As we did not feel that it was our fault, and in fact it was dangerous not to warn us about the damaged table while we were guests in his apartment, we did not pay. Had the situation been different, and we were at fault, we would have no problem reimbursing a host for something we broke or damaged during our stay. My brother and I are both physicians and have no issue being accountable for our actions and paying our debts. In this case, it seemed like our host was taking unfair advantage of us to replace his defective furniture.

    Response from Pablo:

    The truth is that they never inform me that the lease was for 3 people (look (website hidden)). The table had no problem, just was not enabled a small table below it. No guest had had problems before with the table. Do not ask about as they were because you had informed me that everything was fine via whatsapp, and a table like that of course does not break with a few cups of coffee and some small bottles (which is what it was made). In short, I was surprised that you have not taken responsibility for what happened, because it has always happened to me otherwise, especially with people from other countries.

  • Maravillosa estadia de 1 semana en el depto de Pablo. La ubicacion excelente, la conexion a wifi muy buena, el cuarto y baño muy ccómodos. En realidad tenia todo lo necesario para la estadía. Ademas muy cercano a todo el centro de viña, principales playas, centros comerciales y todo lo que se quiere para pasar unas maravillosas vacaciones :) Pablo es un muy buen host, respetuoso y atento. Nada que decir en contra, pero solo cosas buenas!!

  • El departamento está muy bien, es 1 ambiente dividido. La ubicación no es de lo mejor, aunque queda cerca del centro de viña. El servicio de Wi fi no funcionó. El valor del alquiler es un tanto alto. Alquilé x menor valor un depto más amplio a 1 cuadra de distancia,los últimos 2 dias ya no tenia disponibilidad.Trato de ser lo más objetivo y justo posible..En general fue una buena estadía.

  • El apartamento está ubicado en un lugar inmejorable, muy cómodo para dos personas tal como se muestra en las fotos. El edificio es muy moderno y tiene vigilancia las 24hs de forma que nos sentimos muy seguros. Muy recomendable para aquellos que viajan buscando playa y actividades nocturnas ya que se encuentra a pocos metros de los principales lugares. En cuanto a pablo, su dueño, estuvo todo el tiempo en contacto preocupado por el viaje y la buena llegada al apto. También puso personas, muy simpáticas, a nuestras disposición y de gran ayuda. MUY BUENA EXPERIENCIA, LA RECOMIENDO PLENAMENTE

  • Pablo and the apartment are both great. Pablo makes every effort to ensure you will be able to check in on time. The apartment is just as it looks in the pictures. Clean and cosy. Fully equipped with everything a couple would need for a nice stay. The building is also great and safe, has a laundry and a rooftop pool that couldn't be better, where we actually wacthed the NYE fireworks from. It is clean, has a fast and reliable internet connection as well as cable TV. Hot water on the shower and on all taps. Thanks a lot Pablo!!

    Pablo es un excelente anfitrion. El departamento es como se ve en las fotos. Limpio y acogedor. Totalmente equipado con todo lo que necesitas para una estadía agradable. El edificio es también muy bueno y seguro, y cuenta con lavanderia y una piscina en la terraza que no pudo ser mejor, donde nosotros miramos los fuegos del año nuevo. Es limpio, tiene una rápida y confiable conexión de internet así como televisión por cable. Agua caliente en la ducha y en todos los grifos. Muchissimas gracias Pablo!

  • Pablo's place delivered as described. It's centrally locales in Vina Del Mar and is a shirt walk to shops/restaurants. A 15 minute jaunt will take you to the beach & boardwalk area. You also just steps away from the metro line that brings you into Valparaiso for less than $2.00 CDN.

    The apartment itself delivers as promised. It's modern, clean and compact. While I didn't sleep on the futon our travel companion found it a little uncomfortable. There were 3 if us and while its feasible to sleep 4 I think it'd be a little crowded. Big points for having a reliable, fast Internet connection though!

    Also we really appreciated the flexibility on check-in & check-out. We arrived very early and were able to get access to the apartment right away. Same on checkout - we were able to leave our bags until we left the city.
