Welcome to your home in Valparaiso, Chile!
In summary: Bart is a fantastic host, the house is amazing and in a beautiful location and a charming neighborhood. This was a great house for having a large group of friends get together and have a shared living, cooking, and balcony space. So much better than a hotel! Bart was flexible with our arrival and checkout time, and greeted us with a gift bottle of wine, we felt most welcome.
More details: Bart gave us so much useful information about the neighborhood, and was a fantastic host. He had a map of the area for us with restaurants, coffee, liquor stores and supermarkets marked, which was very helpful to orient us. He also gave us great info on the area, including making a reservation for us (was hard to find a place that would accept 7 people somewhat late at night, I recommend getting reservations early if going to a local neighborhood place, especially in high season or near holidays) and letting us know where we could find more options on Sunday night when close-by options were limited. We needed to go back to Santiago, had no car, but wanted to visit a winery along the way, and Bart set us up with a mini-van and driver to allow us to do exactly what we wanted. Also of importance, there is a fantastic coffee maker!
A great place to stay. The roof terrace looking over the city was awesome, comfy beds and a very helpful host. Highly recommend staying here.
Bart was a terrific host. We really enjoyed staying at the apartment in Valparaiso. The views and the location couldn't be beat.
Bart was very friendly and accomodating.
Bart was a great host, very flexible in working with us when our arrival time changed. The apartment was incredible with amazing views and modern amenities, walking distance to some excellent restaurants on Cerro Bellavista again. Would definitely go back.
Another wonderful experience! A party if 5 in beautiful Valpo for just 2 days but made very special by the apartment and host. On arrival greeted with a smile and given a quick run down of the city, Bart obviously loves his home! Always happy to help! The apartment is very well located and provides the perfect place to rest up after a long day exploring the city! Thoroughly recommend!
A lovely experience with The Valparaiso Experience! Bart was the ideal host- laid back, helpful, cheerful and very knowledgable regarding the area! The loft was immaculate, airy, stocked and it's view of the harbor on either if it's two decks is awesome! We will be back, no doubt! Gracias, Bart and family!
Great apartment! stunning view. Just a great experience.
