Interaction with Guests
The maid and/or staff member will welcome you and are on site to help answer any questions you may have about the apartment, the neighborhood, the city, the country...! And Alistair is available by phone any time.
Sopocachi is one of the beautiful and lively residential neighborhoods located just off the city center. It's full of good restaurants, bakeries, cafés, bars and one of the best old-style markets in the whole city. In the evenings it's full of people walking around, leaving work, going to night classes at the university, heading out for a bite to eat... The neighborhood is predominately residential, but it's still active and dynamic. The flat is on a quiet street. Great La Paz city view from the bedrooms.
Easy access to public transport and taxis one block away.
We ADORE our flat. Please treat it well and leave it in the same condition as you received it. Please. No pets allowed. No smoking on the premises.
Alistairs place was super great good location spacious clean easy to find although Alistair is obviously a really busy person he owns Gravity Bolivia and a number of other adventure activities he was always accessible by email loved staying there and hope to go back some day PS if you are into adventure sign up for the death road bike ride with Gravity
Penny, thanks for the great review, and I'm thrilled you liked the place. Unfortunately I didn't get time to meet you, you are right, I am incredibly busy and as much as I would love to meet all the guests who stay at our place it just isn't possible. I really hope Rosa who is in chagre of looking after cleaning at the apartment, and Javier who is in charge of meeting and greeting new guests were able to make your experience comfortable and enjoyable. Thanks again for taking the time to write the great review, and the shout out for Gravity! cheers. Alistair
Our experience was excellent. I would definitely recommend this apartment highly. Alistair responded to our questions and requests immediately and did everything he could to make us feel comfortable. We found the apartment's location very central and east to get to places from. The view from the apartment is spectacular, with the view of the new Teleferico and snow capped mountains! The kitchen was stocked well so that we even held a dinner party there! The women who took care of the apartment and cleaned it were also very nice and responsive once we were able to communicate! (our Spanish is kind of rudimentary). The only issue we had was that when the sun wasn't shining, the apartment felt cool.
We had a wonderful time at Alistair's beautiful two bedroom apartment in La Paz. It looked exactly as pictured, was in a fantastic location, and we especially appreciated the helpful tips and suggestions on making the most of our time in La Paz. There was a slight mix up with our arrival time but Alistair's very friendly downstairs neighbour helped get us sorted, which was much appreciated! I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone spending time in the city. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks, Alistair, for helping make our time in La Paz so great!
Everything was exactly as described. This was by far one of the nicest apartments that I have seen in Bolivia. Everything in the apartment is up to date and was very clean. The owner was out of town during my stay, but he had the housekeeper meet us and she was very courteous and provided us with everything that we needed. We had one problem with an appliance during our stay and it was fixed the same day. Outstanding service...Outstanding apartment.
The apartment is sunny, modern and welcoming, located in a quiet residential neighborhood, (thankfully) far from the tourist ghetto on the other side of town. Fabulous view of the mountains from the bedroom window. Great restaurants, supermarkets, wine bar, bakeries, etc. within easy walking distance. Alistair is a superb host who will help you in any way he can to make the most of your stay in La Paz (and Bolivia). His kindness was greatly appreciated. I did not want to leave...
Die Wohnung ist groß, liegt ruhig und sehr zentral, Busstationen in unmittelbarer Nähe. Wir beide und unsere beiden Kinder wurden von Doña Rosa und ihrem Mann herzlich in Empfang genommen, regelmäßig mit Trinkwasser, Antworten auf unsere Fragen und Holz für den Kamin versorgt. Alistair war jederzeit per Mail erreichbar und wann immer wir etwas brauchten, wurden wir von seinen Mitarbeitern tatkräftig unterstützt. Wir können die Wohnung wärmstens weiterempfehlen!
This apartment was so nice and spacious; it was the perfect home away from home. Rosita and Jill were both so kind and helpful. Our only disappointment was that we did not get a chance to meet our host, Alistair. We will definitely recommend this space to our friends.

I am an adventurous New Zealander who moved to Bolivia over fifteen years ago to develop a number of adventure tourism businesses including a mountain biking company, a zipline, a backpacker hostel and an urban rappelling business. During my 15+ years here myself and my American wife karin have learned the ins-and-outs of all kinds of travel to all corners of Bolivia. We are now offering our modern apartment for rent in the central Sopocachi suburb, and we aim to make your stay there as pleasant as possible, while providing you many insider tips on how to enjoy Bolivia to its fullest.
