About this listing
Cozy ground floor bedroom for one person with a single bed. Convenient for shared bathroom.
Warm, friendly house from the 40's with huge garden reaching down to the lake shore; orchard, vegetable and flower gardens, extensive grass fed on by wild geese, black-headed ibis, hawks and, from time to time, horses. Strategically located
to acces hiking, biking, horse riding and kayak circuits. Safe and quiet neigborhood, not near other houses and separated from the main road by a dirt track and double line of mature trees. However, main road offers frequent bus services to Bariloche centre and out into beautiful countryside. Only 1 km away from the supermarket and excellent local shops, 4 km away from Circuito Chico, 10 km away from Llao-Llao Hotel (lake boat trips) and 15 km away from downtown Bariloche or Cerro Catedral.
The house has a complete kitchen/diner, separate livingroom overlooking garden and lake, internet wi - fi, heating, and washing machine. We don't accept tobacco smokers.
I like to share cooking and eating times as well as photography, hiking, biking and driving around country roads!! I am a professional ski instructor and guide and happy to arrange privately, for the nearby ski resorts (Catedral) area.
The property has 2 double rooms, one ensuite, and a twin-bedded groundfloor room, to share or take privatly for single occupancy. It also has a cozy single room on the groundfloor and a studio bungalow (cabaña) in the grounds. The garden offers sunny and shady areas, space to get away from it all or to socialise in unique, natural surroundings.
Everyone shares responsibility for keeping the house clean and tidy, since everyone enjoys coming in and out of the garden, from down by the lake, and there's much nature about!
Please also leave the kitchen, toilet and other common spaces as you found them, or better - it's great when you clean up as soon after a meal as possible, for the next person to enjoy.
The property is tv free; we ask guests to be considerate of others when using phones or other sound systems. Please respect other people's need for peace and quiet.
Please co-operate with our waste management.
We are pleased to say that we do not knowingly accept tobacco smoking guests.
I could not have asked for a better place to stay while visiting Bariloche. Alberto is the nicest and most helpful host and even lent me a bus pass to get into the town. His English is great and I had the pleasure of meeting his daughter and son, both visiting. The cabin is rustic, but extremely clean and well taken care of, set on a beautiful lake, surrounded by stunningly beautiful forest. There is a bus stop at the end of his drive on the road that comes about every 20 minutes and the house is walking distance to a grocery store. After visiting, I know I will most likely be returning next year!
Just as the other reviews have mentioned, Alberto is a fantastic host. He and Maria made me feel at home and were kind enough to include me in meals and drinks. The property is beautiful and well looked after. It is the perfect escape from the city and close to a lot of the nice hiking trails. I hope to return in the winter season for some skiing!
Alberto responded to all of my queries and requests promptly. Very accommodating. From airport pick up to drop off arrangement everything was smooth. I had a great and peaceful stay in his house for 6 days. Although he was away on most of the days (he was on holdays) I was there, he made sure I'd be well looked after. Indeed his friend and family were very hospitable, friendly and super nice. Fernando, Alberto's friend, who assisted me in everything I need was a fantastic host during my stay. A great person, very helpful and trustworthy. On arrival, I was welcomed with a delicious pizza and bottle of beer which we shared! I got upgraded to an ensuite room which is unexpected and very nice! Fernando took me to the local shop, showed me around and suggested things to do and entertained me with geat acoustic guitar jamming sessions that I really enjoyed. He also showed the Argentine "mate" tradition and shared a "mate" with me. A great cultural learning for me. He even gave me a lift to the center and introduced me to Alberto's parents, Tito and Louisa. Both of them were very nice engaging people. Upon Alberto's return, we all shared an afternoon tea together in his parent's apartment. The homemade cake was yummy! On my last night, myself, Alberto and Fernando shared a dinner and drinks together in a local pub. Staying at Alberto's house is a great way to experience local living in Bariloche. It felt like you own the place and you get to experience their way of life. Location wise it is easy to find, close to many hiking trails and attractions and of course only a minute's walk to the lake. He lends you a bus card which was very handy for commuting. The house is neat, rustic, and really quiet so you get to have a relaxing good sleep each night. I felt very safe in the place. All the description in the ad about the house is accurate. Overall, it is highly recommended to stay in Alberto's house. Not your typical hotel kind of atmosphere but the experience and ambience is absolutely impressive. I would definitely stay there again when I come back! Thanks Alberto and most especially to Fernando. You guys made my stay in Bariloche a memorable one! I wished I could have stayed longer! Hasta la proxima, muchas gracias amigos!
Alberto house is a great place, located in a privileged environment and next very close to most of the trails you want to explore. It is the perfect place to disconnect from the craziness of the city and where you really feel connected to nature.
Alberto was on holidys duting my stay, but Fernando made sure that I was comfortable in the house, and attend all my needs in detail. He was very helpful regarding all my questions about what activies were the best to do. We even share a hike to one of the peaks . We also shared good company, conversations, life experiences, and beers of course!
Without any doubt, I highly recommend Alberto's house if you are planning to visit Bariloche.
P.D: En mi proximo viaje a Bariloche, espero conocerte en persona Alberto!
I spent a wonderful summer week at Albertos place. Alberto and Maria, his girlfriend, made me feel very welcome. The day I arrived I was immediately invited to participate a very enjoyable family dinner in the wonderful garden and had the opportunity to meet his adorable parents and sister. Alberto took me and other guests on several amazing hikes and his son invited me on a fabulous kayak trip at the Nahuapi lake.
Alberto and Maria love to cook and often shared their delicious dishes with their guests.
The room I stayed in was tastefully furnished, bright and had a well equipped kitchenette and a private bathroom.
It was just perfect!
What can I say, Alberto is one of the best hosts! Throughout the entire stay it was clear that he was willing to help his guests with literally anything and everything. His home is absolutely stunning and located perfectly in the middle of the city and the municipal park on Av. Bustillo (beautiful lake views from the house by the way). He knows so so much about Bariloche and made many great recommendations on where to hike, things to do, where to buy groceries (he was nice enough to take me on my first day to the store!), etc. If I am ever back in Bariloche, I will most definitely be staying here again!
The house is beautifully located on the lakeshore, with easy access to the centre but far enough away that you can really enjoy the surrounding scenery.
Due to the combination of guests staying in the house, Alberto upgraded me to a double room with a balcony, which I really appreciated!
Coincidentally Alberto and co had planned a party for another guest the night I arrived which was a lovely evening - paella, wine and cake in the garden as the sun went down.
I didn't see Alberto a huge amount during my stay (for which he apologised profusely) but his family and friends took very good care of me and I had a really fun, relaxing time in Bariloche.
