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.
Parking spaces and WiFi are included.
In addition, through our tourism company Austral Adventures, we can rent you bikes or kayaks, and set you up with various tours in the area. Just ask!
Sandra is a great host. She has a beautiful place by the shore. The house is nicely decorated with local goods. It is a relaxing environment. She and her husband were very helpful in planning our short trip for the day and they welcomed us warmly. Definitely recommended.
We had a great time. Sandra and Britt are very helpful and present at all times to help us with the challenges.
The house is small, but cleverly designed to perfectly fit a family - or a romantic getaway. The master bedroom is spacious taking into account the small spaces available. No tv, and no internet, but through the big windows you can see dolphins, seabirds and local fishermen.
To get to the house you need a 4x4 if driving in your own car. Ancud is located off the touristic centre in Chiloe (normally Castro), but we did not find that as being an issue since what we were looking for were quiet holidays - and Ancud has much more charm than Castro.
Sandra and Britt has organised a space inside their house, where you can dine, and the food is divine. Sandra made us an incredible delicious aji de gallina from her native Peru.
In the main property are some very good swings, and a path going through some native "monte". The sand is thick and the girls were thrilled drawing. Be aware of the janaury locusts, the tabaño, which on sunny days can be an irritating presence.
We woke up to views of dolphins playing outside the bedroom window. How can you beat that? This home is gorgeous, cozy, and kid friendly, perfect for a small family like ours. It's a real getaway, lovingly secluded and yet close enough to so many beautiful things to be explored. And the design of this place is just so elegant - so much thought went into the details.
We didn't have a 4x4 but Sandra & Britt kindly helped us get our stuff to and from the car and we enjoyed the walk when we left this heavenly home. The wifi access point isn't available in the house itself, but they welcomed us into their home whenever we were craving some internet access. And there we got to make friends with their gregarious dogs and adorable children.
We'd go back in a heartbeat. This was the ideal way to see Chiloe.
Wow! Talk about natural beauty! I had to pinch myself each morning when I awoke to the sprawling vista of the lake in the forefront and the three volcanos in the background (one located in Argentina!) from my bed (one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in). This house on the bay outside of Ancud was just perfect! Beautiful space inside and out. Awesome, clean design that blends perfectly with the beauty of the beach just steps away (very long, white sandy beach with 100% sand beneath your feet in the water as well), tall, natural grasses waving in the breeze surround the home. Beachy, fresh, tranquil, private describe best. We were 5 adults staying 2 nights. Everything you could need in this well designed space. Property is a short drive from the bustle of town. Driveway requires 4x4 to get to house. Sandra and Britt are wonderful local resources and have a healthy respect for nature -- we appreciated their efforts in reducing consumption as well as composting and recycling & encouraging their guests to do the same. They are kind and friendly hosts, as are their dogs (we got to know Victoria, a large, very friendly, gentle dog particularly well -- she welcomed us warmly as we came and went:)
We really toiled when planning this trip, in particular, where to locate ourselves for our 2 nights on Chiloé. Having been there, I think the location was perfect. We drove 1/2 hour to see the penguin colonies, and were also able to drive to Castro the same day to see all the wooden churches, etc. This home was a little slice of heaven and I would have stayed for 2 months if I had the time.
Sandra and Britt are great hosts. Beautiful cabin and location. One thing to keep in mind is that it requires either 4X4 to get to or a short walk up and down a hill. We enjoyed the walk!
We stayed at the beach house for a week and it was fantastic! The house is nestled in a little paradise. It's equipped with every comfort we needed (we are family with two kids) and has a unique view. Having the sea a few steps is indescribable. Sandra and Britt are great hosts and have a beautiful family. They welcomed us and made us feel like if we were old-time friends giving us their hospitality and expert knowledge about Chiloe Island. Our stay in the beach house is definitely among the highlights of our trip and hope to return soon. Super super recommended!
