Independent, quiet and superb ocean view from your own home!
This city is made for walking!
Getting here is easy with funicular Espiritu Santo up cerro Bellavista, steps from the apartment. A 5 minute taxi ride from the Valparaiso bus terminal.
Feel at home, mi casa es tu casa!
The building is from 1904 and is refurbished entirely in 2008 maintaining it's original wooden structure and flooring; therefore the building is not sound proof, so please regard your noise level and respect regular hours, for late night partying downtown Valparaiso offers many options.
From Dec 29, 2015 - Jan 02, 2016 the minimum stay is 3 nights.
Valparaíso est une ville magique et Valparaíso expérience est un excellent point de chute pour la découvrir.
Nous avons connu quelques soucis techniques (évacuation, internet) mais ils ont été résolus rapidement et avec une grande gentillesse.
Lovely apartment in a perfect and central location in the city. Bart was mega helpful and full of tips. The reservation included a helpful guide book.
As a heads up the city is on a series of steep hills and the apartment itself is only accessible via a long staircase passageway. All part of the charm.
Lovely appartement with great views over Valparaiso. We had a great stay. Bart made us very wellcome , including with a bottle of red wine ready for us when we arrived ;) a very nice gesture, with lots of information about the city etc. A transfer (taxi) from the airport of Santiago was arranged late at night (this is a extra chargeable service). Fantastic experience. We'll return ;)
Nos deux jours se sont très bien passés, Bart nous a très bien accueilli! L'appartement est propre et joliment décoré. Bart a aussi de très bonnes adresses de restaurant. Je recommande vivement ce logement pour visiter valparaiso.
Bart was the perfect host – easy to liaise with, fast at responding and very accommodating. He met us at his apartment at a convenient time for us, briefing us on the flat and Valpariso.
The apartment was spotless and had everything we needed. Location was perfect, short walk up the hill in a quiet residential area with a great restaurant, (German) bar and deli shop around the corner. The apartment felt really secure, down a quiet alley with a gate at the front. Bart lives upstairs too!
Would definitely stay again and recommend this apartment to a friend.
My experience at Bart's place was great, he was very friendly and even provided us with a welcome bottle of wine. Everything worked well and he was super flexible with the dates as I had not read correctly what he had approved. The electricity was a bit unstable but I think this is the city and old electrical set up of the city and he seemed to take it seriously. The flat was in good condition and fully equipped. We had a great experience!
The little apartment was really comfortable and cute. Hidden from the main street, accessible from a stretch of stairs, it makes for a real Valpo experience, hidden, yet with a magnificent view over the city and the port. The apartment has very nice decoration touches and the kids were thrilled to meet the cats of the neighborhood! We really enjoyed our stay there, and Marcela's recommendations were really helpful.
Great you and the children enjoyed the garden apartment Bellavista Cottage so much and (for the kids) preferred it over the ECCO Duplex Apartment. Thanks for sharing your Valparaiso Experience!
Whenever you like to come again you have your home here, safe travels!
