Our time in Valparaiso was amazing, largely in part to our stay at Bart's place! Stunning views, clean rooms, great kitchen (we loved enjoying a glass of wine on the deck!), and there was plenty of space for two couples. Great location and close to lots of awesome restaurants, we have nothing but wonderful things to say about the apartment and our host! Organized, informative and friendly, he made our stay easy. Highly recommend. Thanks for everything, Bart! We hope our return is soon.
We had lots of fun in Valparaiso and staying at Bart's place was a great choice. Wonderful location and wonderful host! The views are indeed incredible. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed. Bart is a gracious host and was quick with dinner recommendations and any other help we needed. Great experience!
We were extremely fortunate to stay in Apartment D-1 to celebrate New Year's 2013-14 in spectacular Valparaiso. What a priceless view that we enjoyed waking up to each morning and watching the sunset each evening. Bart was gracious enough to organize our sensational New Year's dinner at La Caperucita y El Lobo (highly recommended), our driver to Casablanca (Casa del Bosque and House), restaurant reservations and taxi to the bus station. Great location, although be prepared for the steps to this place; a truly Valpo experience. However, once you reach the serene Pasaje Navaro, you'll be welcomed home, as was Bart's greeting when we arrived. You may want to head to El Plan and purchase your supplies (i.e. paper towels, groceries, sugar, spices, etc) that you may need during your stay. We enjoyed the provided moka pot and relished brewing our brought LavAzza Italian coffee. We were totally satisfied staying here and calling this apartment home for our beautiful 9 days in Valparaiso. A wonderful neighborhood experience in C. Bellavista. You will be sad to leave but can relish in the thoughts to return; we sure hope to. Thank you Bart! May you have an amazing & healthful 2014! P.S.-Do not miss dining at nearby Espiritu Santo (among the top 3 restaurants in all of Valpo; you'd be crazy to pass this place up. Have an Espiritu Santo cocktail and mention that "Kalani & Richard from Hawaii" sent you!) Happy travels!
Bart & Marcela are wonderful hosts, and they have taken a lot of care with building four ecco duplexes that have the most amazing views ever. My unit #2 has unobstructed views of the sea, and it's an absolute revelation to wake up and take in the sea smells each morning. Plus, Bart will go out of his way to make sure everything is okay within the unit and with my stay in Valparaiso. I went to a restaurant the other day and the owner smiled knowingly when she discovered I was staying in one of Bart's places, and said he was the unofficial mayor of the neighborhood.
All-in-all a great experience!
Overall the place was very good, kitchen well equipped, apartment clean throughout, very secure, location was superb to explore the hills of Valparaiso, and Bart was an excellent host: friendly and accommodating.
Great modern apartment! The views are just awesome! It's well hidden so be sure to follow the directions provided by Bart exactly and you'll have no trouble finding the place.
The welcome bottle of wine was a great surprise and we enjoyed it the first night!
That's right! A hidden gem, no street signs on purpose: be a neighbour in the residential hill Bellavista, Valparaiso. With the guidebook and directions provided with booking confirmation, getting here and around is easy; the hard part is leaving!
Safe travel & hasta pronto
What a wonderful apartment! We could have spent all of our time just sitting on the balcony, the views are just amazing.
The apartment itself is perfectly located in the centre of Valparaiso with a lot of bars and restaurants nearby. We very much appreciated Bart's suggestions what to do and where to go for dinner. The apartment is very spacious and has all the bits and pieces that make it a (temporary) home. It is small thoughtful little things like finding salt, oil, sugar etc in the kitchen or the cable on the stereo to connect your iPad that show a very personal touch.
Bart is the perfect host and I thoroughly recommend staying in his apartments.
We stayed at this apartment, our first airbnb experience, fantastic.
In addition to comfortable beds a coffee machine and great views Bart went miles beyond the call of duty. The day we left our tyre blew out in our rental car, Bart gave us time and huge help to get us on our way. We would definitely recommend this accommodation to travellers to Valparaiso.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
