About this listing
If you are looking for an experience away from the fast-pace, the island of Chiloe is perfect for you. Come and enjoy the mystical atmosphere of the island from our beautiful beachside casita and connect with its unique and extraordinary nature.
We have a beautiful rental home, situated meters from the beach, with a private bathroom and kitchenette. Watch dolphins jumping in and out of the water, and enjoy the peace and quiet of the country. This little house is located close to our yoga shala where you are invited to practice if you are so inclined.
We are a family of five: mother, father, and three lively, lovely girls. We are fortunate have four beautiful dogs, many chickens, and a lot of beautiful wildlife around us. We love cooking, and grow some of our own food. We like exploring the beaches and forests of our island home--we are very active and creative ... some of us practice yoga to varying degrees.
We all love to meet new people of all ages, countries, and cultures. We enjoy spending time with our guests if they would like to, and/or giving them the privacy they need. We like open-minded, free-spirited, and peaceful people who are aware and respectful of all living things.

Interaction with Guests
We all love to meet new people of all ages, countries, and cultures. If they have kids, we welcome their kids to play with with ours. The fact that we have live near by gives them the chance to choose interactions, things do happen in a natural kind of way. We like open-minded, free-spirited, and peaceful people who are aware and respectful of all living things.
We don't have many neighbors, the few we have live up the hill and they are wonderful people. We are lucky to be surrounded by nature and feel fortunate to have a large property and that gives us a lot or privacy.
There is public transport and there are also taxis to and from Ancud. They can take our guests up to the top of the hill (400 mts. walk from the property)
If our guests rent their own car, a 4x4 will come all the way to the property, but a 4x2 will have to stay 400 mts up the hill. Everyone who stayed was happy to walk and we help them out when needed.
Other Things to Note
We love and respect nature and have created a life here on this magnificent island where the air is clean, the rain is fresh and the storms are powerful. Chiloe is a generous and magical island that has welcomed us and gave us a home, we hope to help you have a taste of it and welcome you to paradise, for real ! even in the strongest storm with horizontal rain, you will feel that you are in paradise, all we want is to treat Chiloe and the beautiful Chilotes with the same respect they show towards us.
We truly value respecting each other, the land and the nature around us. We welcome people who share these important values.
One last note about provisions:
Please buy your food in town before coming to stay, as there are no markets or shops nearby. There are, fishermen who stop on the beach--and you are welcome to buy fresh seafood from their catches--but this opportunity depends on weather conditions and other factors... so it is best to bring food (and anything else you might need from town) with you when you arrive. Thank you for having read it all and see you in Chiloe!
Seventeen years ago my husband Britt and I came to Chiloe. He is from upstate New York and I am from a small town in the beautiful highlands of Peru.
We began our life together by building a boat. Then came the house, three beautiful girls, dogs, chickens and now two cats.
We have three beautiful guest houses we have built by hand, with the aim of sharing the natural beauty of this tiny island with those passing through. My passion for yoga led us to build a tranquil yoga shala by the sea. We are happy to share it all with those looking for a relaxing getaway, where the blue sea meets the green land.
