We made a last minute decision on our three week ski trip to venture out to Valparaiso to see the coast at the end of our trip. The place was beautiful with an amazing view. We spent hours on the deck outside. Plenty of space in the Queen Mary suite for the four of us. Restaurants, supermarkets, and sights were all proximally very close and and easy walk. Be ready for hills and stairs though, but that's just the city in general. We booked our stay within 36 hours of our stay and Bart was very communicative and helpful with information regarding the local area. In the spirit of honesty, there were only two things to mention. First, the only tv is in the master bedroom. We didn't have the desire to watch tv so it wasn't an issue, but could be for some. Additionally, if you are having an extended stay, all toilet paper must be deposited in the trash opposed to the toilet (assuming it is a pipe issue but I don't know). Wasn't an issue for us on our short stay but was different than any other place I have traveled to and thought it deserved mention. Overall, we had an amazing experience, appreciated Bart's hospitality, and would definitely stay again!

Response from Bart:
Great meeting and hosting Jake and friends, they thoroughly enjoyed their stay here! Indeed, the spirit is enjoying the apartment and terraces with breathtaking views, and explore the vecinity with great restaurants and city of Valparaiso. I deliberately put one TV with HD cable in the Queen Mary Duplex apartment, just or a special occasion like the unmissable sports final. Valparaiso is fascinating, it's complex geography on the hills with narrow streets and staircases come with narrow sewerage, so it's recommendable to use the bin. Safe travels and hasta pronto! Bart

Our stay at Bart's apartment was great. Everybody in the group was impressed with the open floor plan and the views from all the balconies. It was just a few blocks from Plaza Victoria and easy to get to. We were driving a Ford Explorer which isn't the smallest car in the world, but while there were a few tight spots we had no problems finding parking. Very positive experience for all of us. I would highly recommend it!

The apartment is the perfect place to stay in Valparaiso, especially if you're traveling with a group. It is comfortable and spacious with amazing views of the city from two large balconies. Bart is well deserving of the title "super host." With very little notice, he helped us arrange ground transportation between Santiago and Valparaiso for our group. He made lots of recommendations for places to eat around the city. He was in regular communication and was highly responsive to all of our questions. We could not have asked for a better experience and would gladly stay here again.

This is definite adventure travel and do not expect to be on the hillside with servants and vallets. Valparaiso is an exciting place but it is very urban with the usual stray animals and graffiti of a dense city. This is why you would come to visit Valpo and see a very unique city experience. We rented a car to get there and were not prepared for the incredibly steep and tight hills to get to the house. Just go slow and you will be fine. Adventure! The house was great and perfect for a big group. Great views, wifi is solid, bathrooms have hot water even after 8 people. We cooked and enjoyed a great and super unique weekend away. Bart is a great and attentive host.

Located in a central part of the city with ample street parking for those driving from Santiago, the apartment is beautifully designed with everything a family (+some) needs for a comfortable stay in Valpo. Bart is very attentive, responsive, and gives valuable recommendations. The views from the two huge balconies are fantastic. All of the appliances worked with no problems, which is a plus considering this hasn't been a given for our trip through Chile. The apartment is accessed along a long staircase, which Bart explains - this is very much the case. We loved the extra exercise!
