About this listing
Our beautiful tower apartment has a romantic and cozy tree-house feel will give you a peaceful and tranquil stay in Chiloe.
If you plan on traveling to Chiloe, try this option and have a unique, mystical and unforgettable experience.
In building our home, the first thing we did was to construct a water tower for our tank. It ended up being very big and tall, so we decided to design a guest house inside it.
Although it rains a lot on Chiloe, that doesn't mean that there is always a fresh supply of water because we sometimes have several months without rain. However, we are very fortunate to have delicious water from a fresh spring in the forest behind the Tower. We collect the water year-round, but we are very conscious and careful about our water use.
'The Tower' has a tree house feel to it, with an amazing view of the ocean and the volcanoes on the horizon of the mainland. It is a beautiful, split-level apartment. Private and romantic for a couple, but with enough room for a small family, it has a queen-sized bed upstairs and a futon in the living room. The apartment sleeps up to three people, and it includes a kitchenette, a bathroom with a shower, and everything you need to feel comfortable.
For Free our guest have access to a private beautiful beach, walks in the forest, knowledgeable advice about what to visit and when (we have a travel company and have organized specialized traveling for 17 years)
For a reasonable fee, our guests can have access to:
Sea Kayaks, paddle boards, yoga (private or groups class), cooking classes
Freshly made meals can also be arranged: We can make a special private meal or you can join our family for a meal, breakfast and dinner can be eaten at the studio or at our sun room.
Interaction with Guests
Depending on the guests, we love to interact with our guests but also respect their privacy. If they have kids, we welcome their kids to play with with ours. The fact that we have live near by gives them the chance to choose interactions, things do happen in a natural kind of way.
We don't have many neighbors, the few we have live up the hill and they are wonderful people. We are lucky to be surrounded by nature and feel fortunate to have a large property and that gives us a lot or privacy.
There is public transport and there are also taxis to and from Ancud. They can take our guests up to the top of the hill (400 mts. walk from the property)
If our guests rent their own car, a 4x4 will come all the way to the property, but a 4x2 will have to stay 400 mts up the hill. Everyone who stayed was happy to walk and we help them out when needed.
Other Things to Note
We love and respect nature and have created a life here on this magnificent island where the air is clean, the rain is fresh and the storms are powerful. Chiloe is a generous and magical island that has welcomed us and gave us a home, we hope to help you have a taste of it and welcome you to paradise, for real ! even in the strongest storm with horizontal rain, you will feel that you are in paradise, all we want is to treat Chiloe and the beautiful Chilotes with the same respect they show towards us.
We truly value respecting each other, the land and the nature around us. We welcome people who share these important values.
One last note about provisions:
Please buy your food in town before coming to stay, as there are no markets or shops nearby. There are, fishermen who stop on the beach--and you are welcome to buy fresh seafood from their catches--but this opportunity depends on weather conditions and other factors... so it is best to bring food (and anything else you might need from town) with you when you arrive. Thank you for having read it all and see you in Chiloe!
About the Host, Sandra
Seventeen years ago my husband Britt and I came to Chiloe. He is from upstate New York and I am from a small town in the beautiful highlands of Peru.
We began our life together by building a boat. Then came the house, three beautiful girls, dogs, chickens and now a cat.
We have three gorgeous guest houses we have built by hand. My passion for yoga led us to build a beautiful yoga shala by the sea. We are happy to share it all with open-minded, honest people.
