About this listing
Superb double bedroom with balcony, overlooking orchard garden and lake. Shared bathroom access downstairsWarm, 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.
La mejor evaluación para Alberto y el lugar. Como anfitrión te hace sentir muy cómodo y el lugar es tal cual lo imaginaba, no hay ningún engaño en lo que ofrece. La ubicación es óptima, ya que no es en la zona mas cargada de la ciudad, sino en camino a la mayoría de los circuitos turísticos. La vista del lago, desde la habitación, es tal cual se observa en las fotos. Y está a solo 25 minutos en ómnibus a la ciudad (para ello, Alberto y María te facilitan una tarjeta de transporte). La relación precio-calidad está plenamente justificada. Para recomendar, sin duda, y para volver en cuanto sea posible. Gracias a Alberto y María por la atención, obviamente la pasamos muy bien.
Alberto es un casero excelente. No solo alquila la habitación sino que además propone excursiones, rutas y diferentes opciones según lo que el turista busque. Experiencia buenisima a repetir ojala que pronto.
Very disappointed! No spectacular lake views here! The balcony is to small to swing a cat and even unsafe to to step onto as same of the blanks are broken.
The room is tiny.
Certainly not like the photos!
Better value elsewhere.
The experience at Alberto’s home was great. His kind parents picked up me by car from Bariloche bus terminal to Alberto’s home and lent me a pass card for local bus which was very helpful. Alberto will receive you with a great hospitality. If you want to practice ski at Bariloche, you can count on Alberto, he can bring you to Cerro Catedral and guide you for the best way. Besides Alberto’s good personality, there is no worry about your necessary to stay at here. You can find a supermarket about 1.5km (accessible by walk), good restaurants such as Bahia Serrana(2km from his home), El Boriche de Alberto(around 8km from his house) and more. One of the best experience for me was the miraculous sunrise glow which I could see every morning. You will be fascinated for the nature beauty of this place. And also, the best Bariloche's meal that you could have is handmade pasta of Alberto's mother.
Alberto es una persona super amable y servicial, el trato con él desde un principio fue sencilla y sin complicaciones.
El lugar es maravilloso, a la orilla del lago con grandes vistas y aves Patagónicas. Es una cabaña rústica para disfrutar y pasar un buen rato.
It was so much fun to stay at Alberto's place! He loves to have people around, is very helpfull and makes you feel very welcome. His son and sister, who where also in town, were fantastic too. It was like we had an Argentinan family for a few days! The house is lovely and perfect located on the lake. Downtown Bariloche is easy to reach by bus. If you have a change, spend a few days at Alberto's. You won't regret it!
Staying at Albertos is great. I say "is" because I am back there again. Having already extended my initial stay twice, I booked in again when I recently returned to Barilcohe from a short trip further south.
I was slightly concerned that Bariloche would be a bit too developed and tourist orientated for my taste, but staying with Alberto ensured that I was able to enjoy all the truly amazing things this area has to offer, whilst also feeling part of a laid-back, authentic homestead.
Alberto was really helpful and flexible before and during my stay with him. He was enthusiastic with his guidance and suggestions for activities in the area, and indeed we got to do some cool things together. Also, if desired, you can sometimes get in on the nice comunal vibe around meal time.
Alberto rents a few rooms in the house and there tends to be a mix of short and longer term guests. Hence the dynamic will obviously change from week to week, but with Albertos easy-going and playful nature in the mix I reckon it will always be a pleasant experience. I very much enjoyed feeling part of the gang for my time here.
The house is a bit outside town but given that there is a good bus service, as well as good local stores, that only enhanced my experience. You are close to amentities if you need to be, but far enough to enjoy the peace and beauty of the area. The homely garden, the mini orchard and herb patch, the occasional visitations by the white horses, the tall trees and of course, the lake on your doorstep.
The house is well equiped and the bedrooms are comfortable.
Overall, a great experience. And I may even come back again.... and again...
