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.
I had a very enjoyable stay at casa Alberto. We went for some hikes and shared some meals and wine. Alberto's mom and dad cooked us dinner one night and treated me like royalty. I will be back.
Wonderful experience! Alberto is a kind, relaxed and caring host. Communication was easy and reliable. Alberto's house is just a few meters from the lake and outside of Bariloche which makes it the ideal place to relax in nature. There is a bus station a few steps from the house, and busses are quite frequently, yet sometimes I also had to wait for about 20 minutes. It takes about 30 to 40 minutes to get to the bus terminal and about 30 minutes to the wonderful Llau Llau. You can also rent a bike and go for the great "circuito chico" tour. There is a great restaurant just a few minutes from the house (Rincon Patagonico) and some basic groceries as well, As mentioned by others, Alberto makes his own multigrain bread and shares it with guests.This was far the best bread I have eaten on my 4 weeks trip to Argentina! The house reminded me of Austrian alpine houses, and indeed, it was built by Alberto's German grandfather. It's quite rustic and homey and I had the whole ground floor practically for myself. I highly recommend this place!
When I stayed in Alberto's lovely rustic home on the lake, I immediately felt like part of the family. Within hours of arriving I had been guided along the lake, seen dozens of birds, gone group grocery shopping, met new friends for happy hour and shared a dinner prepared by another guest. Over the next couple of days I had walked to several beautiful vistas, ate dinner cooked by Alberto's mother, danced with his father and witnessed the family's talent for music and merry making. People like this are why I travel!
Well words are not enough for this host.!
There is nothing that is too much trouble for Alberto he goes the extra mile every time.
His local knowledge and help with arrangements is worthy of the local lad that he is and his Global Dinner Parties have taken on a life of their own and are beginning to become a bit of a House
Tradition.Family Asados quickly become extended family gatherings leaving the solo traveller with a real sense of belonging
Thank-You Albert, Fred and Jo- Jo too.
I am glad Alberto's place was the last stop of the three weeks I spent in Argentina; had it been the first I wouldn't have gone anywhere else.
I couldn't have hoped for a better host; Alberto is kind, generous, always happy to drive you around and show you things that as a tourist you wouldn't have access to. I arrived late on my first day, the other people staying at the house had gone out for dinner and Alberto shared with me a delicious fish soup he had cooked for himself.
Stop reading reviews and book a room at his place!
I had a lovely stay
a truly remarkable experience! a tastefully decorated house with all the amenities one would need and with an amazing garden overlooking the lake. Bus nr 20 connects the house with the city and circuito chico in less than 20 minutes. Alberto is a great host, always ready to help.
The house is a very good base for hiking and exploring the area.
Alberto himself is a very friendly and hospitable person! He really cares about his guests and understands the needs of travelers, because he has lived in a lot of countries around the world. Hopefully I will be back to Argentina and Albertos house next year!
I am going to stay on and cannot speak too highly of this location. Two people have just left, who stayed for months, or weeks and then returned. It is hard for me to understand those who don't 'get it', as there is a special atmosphere here, with its lovely grounds, nature, access to everything, including 'real' (not touristy) local shops and people. Nearly everyone 'mucks in' and yet there is space to 'do your own thing' when you want. Alberto puts himself out to 'entertain', easily offering lifts whenever he goes anywhere, and gave Dejanna and me an amazing personalised tour of the Seven Lakes recently, finding 4 extra ones, lots of interesting stories, a waterfall and a full moon! He costed it out for three but didn't charge more when one guest decided not to come. He cooks excellently and those who want to often share meals, learning other people's specialities; mine is kefir and humous! Oh, just come, it's wonderful!!!
Unfortunately while staying at Alberto´s money and things were stolen, and it has not been a good experience. A 100 US dollars were taken from my bag, from my room. We were out on a day trip that day, and when we came back late I first discovered that my food was missing - so no dinner that night.. In the morning I was leaving early for a full day hiking, and as the bread that I prepared to make sandwiches was not there I had no food for the day either (there are no facilities or options to buy food on the hike). Later on that day I realised that the money was missing.. And yet later on one of the other guests, not knowing I was home tried to enter my room.. In a nutshell a very upsetting experience. Not to mention a volatile atmosphere, some loud voices and noises and commotion in the night.. And when I moved to another place I realised that a couple of more things were missing.
If there were not for all of the above it probably would have been fine. But I would not wish this on anyone. It all depends on who else ends up staying there, as there are not even the basic rules, and you are not sure if you are going to find your things untouched, or find your things at all. In hindsight I regret not informing the police, but I only had a day and a half days left in Bariloche, and at the time I did nto want my whole stay ruined..
Well seems that fate and misfortune arrived with Dejana.
Nothing like this ever happened here,previous reviews are clear!
We have more people in the house and something could have been done If I was notifiyed inmediatly,not like tree days later and by a mail;although is not possible to acuse anybody without clear and convincing evidence!
And ingratitude stains everything denying witch we have given, with no single positive
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
