Interaction with Guests
I am always available to talk to guests and give them the insider's / local tips for transportation, restaurants / bars, sightseeing, etc.
I grew up in this blue collar neighborhood. A half block away from the city public market and farmers' market, makes this part of the city very colorful and always a treat to visit. You can see how real Chileans interact and work. At night, it is very safe since it has bright street lights and around the clock surveillance via public cameras on both corners of my street. We have never had an incident.
Public transportation is a step away. 2 blocks from the intercity bus terminal and same distance for local bus stops and metro station to go to Valparaiso.
We like polite and respectful guests.
Todo es tal cual aparece en las fotografías. Es muy cómodo, prolijo y pulcro.
Vito es un excelente anfitrión que facilita todo lo que uno pueda necesitar.
La ubicación es muy cómoda para moverse entre balnearios y a los lugares que uno puede querer visitar aunque no es la zona más turística ni pintoresca de Viña.
Great host and stay. Convenient and safe location near the main bus terminal. Vito speaks fluent English and went out of his way to help orient me to the area. Would definitely recommend as a good base for Viña del Mar.
Vito nos recebeu muito bem, nos deu dicas sobre Viña del Mar. O ambiente é familiar e a área muito tranquila e silenciosa. Fica muito próximo do terminal rodoviário, do mercado municipal, e de supermercados. A Praça Vergara e o Parque Quinta Vergara onde há eventos ficam perto. Caminhando pouco chegamos no comércio e um pouco mais chegamos ao Museu Fonck com o Moai ou até a praia. Muito fácil se locomover de ônibus. Ou seja, ótima localização! Os quartos são grandes e com decoração antiga e modesta. Em um deles dá pra improvisar refeições rápidas, pois há geladeira, fogão, panelas, copos, talheres, apesar da pia ser única pra cozinha e banheiro. Os anfitriões são atenciosos e resolveram pequenos problemas prontamente. Boa opção!
Gostei muito da hospedagem, aVito judou muito a gente a conhecer Vinã Del Mar e Valparaiso e a casa é muito bem localizada e perto de tudo inclusive da rodoviária, deu tudo certo e nos sentimos bem acomodados
I cannot speak highly enough about our 3-day stay at Vito's. The location, 1 block from the bus station in Vina Del Mar and a short bus or collectivo (taxi) ride into Valparaiso made this an ideal location.
Our group of 4 took 2 rooms on the 2nd floor that were modest but exceeding comfortable and had good storage space; each bedroom came with a private bathroom and we were provided the password to use Vito’s wifi. The home is located on a side street in a working class neighborhood that felt safe and was quiet at night.
However what made our stay so pleasant was Vito who was the consummate host. Long before we arrived at his home, he was kind enough to help us with transportation concerns both for coming to Vina Del Mar but also with touring the Casablanca Wine region. On the first day of our arrival he walked us around the neighborhood to help us get our bearings ; Vito took us on our first collectivo (group taxi) ride and even treated us to a bus ride into Valparaiso to give us the confidence to use public transit.
Vito arranged a private dinner at a local chef's house in the hills of the Valparaiso that had a breath-taking view of the city below. We enjoyed a marvelous dinner with the chef and his charming family who graciously opened up their home to us and truly made us feel welcomed.
As we prepared for the next part of our travels in Chile, Vito was even kind enough to allow us use of his washing machine when we asked for directions to a Laundromat. Vito’s assistance would easily rivaled that of a concierge at a four star hotel and made our trip to Vina Del Mar and Valparaiso exceptional. Everyone in my group agreed that our time at Vito' was the highlight of our travels in Chile - thank you Vito.
Vito and his family were very welcoming, and the location is excellent - close to the bus station, Metro (easy travel to Valpo), and restaurants and shops around. The room is simple and the building is rather old (thin walls), but it is a good value for the price. Bed was comfortable, I was given a key to the room, and bathroom was fine. I felt safe there as a single woman. Thanks Vino!

I am a traveler who lived 20 years overseas. I came back to my hometown, Vina del Mar, Chile 2 years ago and opened a B&B / hostal to receive fellow travelers. If you stay with us, you'll have an insight view of the best places to spend your time. The area is full of places to enjoy nature. My home is just a 20 min. walk to the city beaches. We also offer tours to close by wineries (Casablanca valley), hiking or horseback riding trips (Olmue valley). Our sister city of Valparaiso offers a large variety of places to visit and things to do as well.
