Good sized twin-bedded room on ground floor, convenient to shared bathroom, with view over lake and garden. 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.
If you are an uncomplicatet person, you would love to stay at Albertos place! We had a very good time an we were like family! Had dinner and barbeque together! The place is very nice and quiet, located directly at the lake. For going downtown Bariloche, the busstation is very close with good connections! It was a great airbnb experience! Thank you Alberto!
Staying with Alberto is like coming home to the Argentinean family you didn't know you had. Alberto creates a space where you not only feel welcome, you have the sense that you've lived in this mountain lake house forever. It's a house is full of laughter, homemade gnocchi, good times, and a general sense that this, right here, is the way things should always be. Alberto is generous, hilarious, a genius in the kitchen, and a catalyst in finding and fostering adventure. All good things here.
Alberto was an absolute top notch host! He made us feel comfortable and welcome like old friends and took it upon himself to get us married in his backyard! The ceremony was unforgetable and we can not wait to return to this magical place and our wonderful new friend. :-) ♥
Alberto is an amazing host - friendly, talkative, and eager to show you around/tell you about his beautiful city! The house is lovely and we were so comfortable and content while staying there. It is situated in a extraordinary location, right on the lake just outside of town. There's a grocery store and several other shops (take-out, natural foods shop, ice cream, pharmacy) within a short, pleasant walk. It's about a 20 minute bus ride into the city center, or you can hop on the bus the other direction to get to hiking trails, llao llao, breweries, and spectacular views. We highly recommend staying here while you are in Bariloche!
Alberto has a beautiful property about 14 kilometres from downtown overlooking the lake. The bus comes about every 20 minutes to go into town. Alberto had a couple of bus cards we were able to load with pesos which made it super easy. He was also gracious enough to give us a lift to Catedral, the ski resort. He also showed us all around, A very welcoming host.
We (me, dauhters and son) got very happy to be with Alberto!
His house is very cozy and full of personnal details that give it life. More than a rental house, you'll feel at home. It was very good to get back at the end of our days, find the house warm and cook something for dinner. Kitchen, living and bedrooms are comfortable, the place is silent and very beautiful - we could saw everyday the sunrise at Nahuel Huapi lake.
The property is located 30min away by bus from dowtown - we preffer this way instead of being close to the mess - and it was easy and fast to go everywhere with the bus line "20".
Alberto was a great host, very careful, joyful and sympathetic. He helped us with everything we needed - transfer from the airport, sky lessons, sky equipment rental, bus cards, bike rental, tips and suggestions about the city, activities to do and places to visit, and even with a car rental to drive to Chile. We also had the honor to meet Luisa and Tito, his kind and sweet parents.
Bariloche is a very beautiful place. It's also an expensive touristical place, but you may save money cooking at home and taking sandwiches, cookies, chocolate and water to consume during the day). Alberto wll also help you with good tips to escape from the obvious touristic routes. We totally recommend to stay with him at one of his bedrooms or houses. More than a very experient and knower of the place, you'll have a friend.
About Bariloche: Don't miss the Circuito Chico with bikes (about AR$ 100 per bike), the Cerro Campanario (AR$ 90, the most beautiful 360º view of the region) - you can reach both walking from Alberto's house. Dont't waste your time and money with Cerro Otto. If you don't want or can't pay a day pass (AR$ 550!) at Cerro Catedral, don't miss the ride on cablecarril+telesillas to the top of the Cerro (AR$ 150) - amazing views and a good place to photos and to do your cliche but must-have snowman. If possible, take a car and go to Villa La Angostura, Circuito Largo and cross to Chile. You'll have and unforgetable trip.
Great location, ambiente familiar, access to lake, huge garden! We liked it much!
Alberto is a special host in a special place. He makes not only his beautiful country home and garden a comfortable place to be, but helps you to connect with the native spirit of Bariloche. To me this is the best thing one can get out of visiting a new place - a meaningful connection with its people, its flora and fauna, local foods, its air, water and earth, and natural opportunities to give something of yourself to it. Otherwise traveling is merely like a walk on the surface of a snowglobe, the symbolic trinket of tourism. You might see, hear, feel or taste a sense of the local life, but you never connect with its heart and soul.
Alberto helps you get inside the snowglobe, where the real action is, where the figurines come alive into thinking, feeling people and facades transmorph into real interactive spaces. How does he do this? It’s quite simple. He merely shares his life with you, with thoughtfulness for you as a traveler, and an easy, positive and open energy. “Going to the store! Shall we go?” or “Hey why don’t we drive some of the Circuito Chico and stop to get a beer somewhere!” or “Let’s go hike Cerro Llao Llao. Today is the day for it!”
Of course, Alberto is flexible to your interests as a visitor and he may be more or less busy. But it’s hard to beat Alberto’s born-and-raised in Bariloche knowledge and community connections. And in his home you are likely to meet some interesting others who are staying in the other rooms. We had a great time becoming friends with Alberto, Carlos (Italian), Rosie (English), Frank (Swedish), and meeting his lovely parents (some German heritage) and friend Walter (Italian).
What more can you ask for from a travel experience? If you are asking for more than Alberto and his home can give you, then you’ve got an attitude adjustment to make. However, if you are tired of skating the surface and want to truly experience the Bariloche of locals who live outside the touristy center, then I cannot make a better recommendation for your visit than to stay with Alberto. Surely, I am inspired to return.
Had a great time again!
Alberto's home is in a wonderful setting that is quite peaceful and private. You couldn't ask for anything more in a host: Albetrto is very generous siwth his time and help while staying there. He even had prepaid bus cards available to use to get into town and back. He is such a very, very nice person.
