About this listing
The island of Chiloe is the perfect place to relax, relieve stress and enjoy an atmosphere completely unique to the rest of Chile. Our studio apartment is secluded haven nestled among the trees, perfect for unwinding and enjoying mystical Chiloe.
This beautiful studio apartment is on the ground floor of ‘The Tower.’ It has a lovely view of our backyard and the feeling of a little ‘cave’ in the forest. From your bed, look out into the cool, dark forest climbing with green vines and covered in moss. There is a wood fire in the bedroom to add to the cozy feeling.
This single floor apartment has two single beds (which can be made into a queen-sized bed if need be) and a futon. Let us know which arrangement suits your needs better. It can sleep up to three adults or a couple with a child. It has a kitchenette with a fridge and everything you need to cook. It also has a private bathroom with a shower.
Both Tower apartments are only 80 meters across the field from the beach, whose sandy expanse stretches four kilometers to the east - perfect for sunset walks!
Our place is unique because we build it and we keep it with love and dedication. We are fortunate to live in such an amazing an unspoilt part of the world.
There is something indescribable you get when you are here, something you have to experience yourself when you come. It is a sense of peacefulness and freedom.
For Free our guest have access to a private beautiful beach, walks in the forest, knowledgeable advice about what to visit and when (we have a travel company and have organized specialized traveling for 17 years)
For a reasonable fee, our guests can have access to:
Sea Kayaks, paddle boards, yoga (private or groups class), cooking classes. Freshly made meals can also be arranged: We can make a special private meal for you or you can join our family for a meal: breakfast and dinner can be eaten at the studio or at our sun room, we don't provide lunch unless it is for a group.
Interaction with Guests
Depending on the guests, we love to interact with our guests but also respect their privacy. 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 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!
About the Host, Sandra
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 a cat.
We have three gorgeous guest houses we have built by hand. My passion for yoga led us to build a beautiful yoga shala by the sea. We are happy to share it all with open-minded, honest people.
