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.
About the Host, Vito
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.
