It was nice to meet Bart and he made us feel welcome. We wish him and his family all the best for the future. Wayne & Anne
We really enjoyed our stay at Bart's property. The apartment has an amazing view of the water and the beautiful Bellavista neighborhood. The apartment was well laid out, filled with cool art work, and had plenty of space for four of us (two adults and two children). On the day we arrived, Bart and his family were traveling, but he made all the arrangements necessary to welcome us. Thanks, Bart for your kind hospitality!
El lugar era muy bueno! Lo mejor fue la vista de todo el puerto y la terraza para hacer asados. Las dos habitaciones tambien muy cómodas. Bart también fue muy amable con nostros. Fue una buena experiencia.
Bart's place was amazing- very clean, great deck with an incredible view of the sea. Bart was very helpful in giving recommendations and was very hospitable. The apartment is in a cool neighborhood close to many great restaurants and accessible by foot to all the main attractions of the city. Thanks Bart!
Enjoyed our stay with Bart. The apartment was immaculate, the location great and Bart was very helpful.
There's nothing to think about - stay at this place!!! Bart was so welcoming and gracious. He arranged transportation for us from Santiago, greeted us when we arrived, had a bottle of wine waiting for us and took the time to chat with us and give us some suggestions on what to do around the city.
The place itself is spectacular. The view is incredible and the apartment has everything you need.
This was one of the most pleasant travel experiences I've ever had. Thank you so much, Bart!!!
The only 'but' I can think of, is that time is so short! Really great hosting you and glad you enjoyed the apartment (ECCO Duplex), location and views so much. You certainly made the most of your stay, a real Valparaiso Experience. And like you said, I wish we had more time here. Something to look forward to, you have your home here, safe travels and hasta pronto!
The apartment is as viewed in the photos. Bart was very helpful in suggesting places to see and in getting our barbecue going on the grill. The apt. is in what seemed to be a safe neighborhood and we had no problems while in Valparaiso. We walked to all the places tourist should visit and never rented a cab or used our rent a car. The hill leading up to the apt. is not for the faint of heart but there are elevators that work throughout the city that take you to the top of hills which was a really cool experience. Some good food here but keep in mind that most restaurants are closed on Sunday and Monday evenings which is why we decided to experience shopping in the local meat and vegetable markets and cooking our own barbecue. The museums are also closed on Mondays. If we came back to Valparaiso we would definitely consider staying here again would plan a Tuesday - Saturday stay due to the closures. Bart, thanks for your hospitality and we enjoyed meeting your adorable sons!
Thanks for your stay and detailed review, great meeting and hosting you! Glad to help out with the barbecue: nothing better than home cooking with a bottle of good bottle of Chilean wine, while enjoying the panoramic views from the deck terrace.
We recently equipped our apartments with high end espresso & cappuccino coffee machines, just one short in your apartment and forgot to replace it for your stay, sorry about that!
Safe travels and hopefully hasta pronto!
