About This Listing
Beautiful suite with bedroom, bathroom, balcony and a veranda overlooking the bay and the hills of Valparaiso. This suite is on the third floor of a restored house that is more than 100 years old and was built with red wood from Oregon and chilean oak at the beginning of the 20th century. It is a family home that include 4 generations and diferent nationalities.
In the morning we will bring the breakfast upstairs, so that you can enjoy the views while you get a good start into the day.
We are in a residential and quite area 5 minutes from the Naval Museum, the Artillery elevator and the 21st of May boulevard and only 10 minutes away from the historic harbour district with excellant fish restaurants and many bars. To the more touristic centers of Concepcion and Alegre hill it is a 20 minutes walk or 10 minutes with public buses.
There are several public transport options a few steps from the door of our house and for people who come in their own car we have a private parking place.
We offer walking tours, wine tours and visits to the museum of the chilean poet and Literature Nobel Price winner Pablo Neruda in Isla Negra, as well as excursions to the La Campana national reserve. We also provide maps and local tips and ideas to help you get the most from your stay in this fascinating UNESCO World Heritage City.
We expect your visit and will do our best to make you feel like home.
No se puede fumar dentro de la casa, soló en el balcón y el jardín.
Fomos muito bem recebidos por uma senhora muito simpática chamada Nina. Ficamos apenas um dia, pois estávamos passando pela cidade. A vista do quarto é incrível. E também pudemos deixar o carro na garagem. E para melhorar ainda tivemos um excelente café da manhã preparado por ela.
My wife and my stay was wonderful. Kati helped us get set up with local transportation and sights and Nina brought us her amazing breakfast every morning. Their home is amazing and should be a historical site! Everyone in the house is very friendly and my wife loved their dogs and cat.
Note that in mid-afternoon the suite does get pretty toasty, but the bedroom is kept cool by strategic placement of blinds :).
We were made to feel very welcome the minute we arrived at Valpo Romantic Suite. The apartment is an aerie looking over Valparaiso. The view is remarkable. The lovely and gracious Nina brought us a delicious meal for each breakfast - lots of fruit which we were craving. The accommodation was very comfortable in every way. My only quibble is the presence of the cat. I am not allergic but was sensitive to the smell. My wife could not smell it though. So highest marks if you are very fond of everything cat.
Suite Mirador was exactly as pictured: a beautiful suite on the top floor of a house, with fantastic views. Nina, our primary point of contact, was very sweet, helpful, and brought us a wonderful breakfast every morning at the time we wished! Oliver, the other host, was also very helpful in providing directions for getting around town.
Two things to consider:
1. Though beautiful, it is very loud at night! The walls are thin, and you will most likely hear dogs barking all night, loud neighbors, and the occasional TV or conversation. If you are a light sleeper, as I am, you may have a hard time sleeping.
2. There are cats living in the house (if you have allergies, this may be a problem), one of which loves to come upstairs (there is nothing to block the apartment off from the rest of the house). She will get into any food you leave around, as well as your things--so be careful!
Otherwise, we loved the location, the apartment, the views, and the hosts!
Suite Mirador was a place you dream of - the perfect homebase for Valparaiso. Nina met us at the door with a smile and immediately found a cane for me to use during my stay as I had sprained my ankle a few days earlier. Then Kati helped my companion, Wes, carry the luggage up to the 3rd floor. The stairs might be a drawback for some but they were wide, solid wood, and had a strong bannister so I was able to do the climb just fine even with this hurt ankle. The place looks just like the pictures and the view of the rooftops, ocean, and surrounding hills is amazing. Nina also brought me some anti-inflammatory cream to use which really helped. Then Kati gave us tips on how to get to our first funicular without too much trouble. We stayed two nights and were treated to a lovely breakfast on the veranda each morning. On our 2nd day there, we hired Oliver, the owner, to take us on a tour of Valparaiso - well worth the money. Oliver is an expert on the area and gave us a very interesting, comprehensive tour as well as good tips on where to eat. In the mornings and evenings we left the door to the balcony and the windows on the veranda open to create a refreshing breeze. The reasonable price, the beautiful accommodations, the amazing view, and our wonderful hosts made Suite Mirador the perfect place to stay. I highly recommend this place and hope to return one day.
