We have a private studio apartment situated on the ground floor of our three story "tower," across the yard from our home, which includes a duplex as well. The studio has a beautiful view of the forest out back, and is just a short walk away from a long and beautiful beach.
The studio has a very comfortable double bed, and a futon for a third person. A beautiful and cozy living/dining space overlooks the garden and includes a kitchenette. There is also a private bathroom, with a shower and hot water.
We have space to park outside, and WiFi is included.
We are a family of five, with two dogs, chickens and a lot of wildlife. We cook a lot and love to play, all of us are very active and creative people, each in their own way. Some of us practice yoga so yoga practitioners are welcome to the use of our beautiul yoga shala by the sea for a small extra cost .
If you would like to have a yoga class, that can be arranged too please ask when you arrive.
We all love to meet new people of all ages, countries and cultures, who are open minded, free spirited and respectful of all living things.
We can also provide food for an extra fee, we could cook a nice gourmet meal for you or can share our family meals, prices vary depending on the type of meal you would like to have, We also offer a variety of breakfasts, but no lunch.
In addition, through our tourism company, Austral Adventures, we can rent you bikes, kayaks, or set you up with various tours in the area. Just ask!
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 unsespoilt part of the world.
There is something indescriptible you get when you are here, something you have to experience yourself when you come. It is a sence of peacefulness and freedom.
Beautiful place and a lovely host! We really enjoyed our time with Sandra and her family. The studio is very nice, clean and well equipped. The only thing to keep in mind is that you need to have a 4WD vehicle to access the property. Otherwise it is about a 5-7 min walk but also a bit of a rough drive as the driveway is not yet paved. Other than that I would highly recommend this lovely place in a wonderful island.
Awesome location! Great tips that made our visit even better. Very friendly family and an extremely safe location which made it easy to relax.
My boyfriend and I spent 1 week in Sandra & Britt's awesome duplex-cabanas and it was the most nice, charming and peaceful place we've ever seen !
At the beginning we wanted to rent the small studio, but as Britt's mother was arriving 2 days after us, Sandra proposed us to take the upstairs studio for the same price :)
Sandra & Britt are so nice, always smiling, making us fell as if we were part of their family, and even inviting us to their daughter's birthday !
Everything over there is so cosy, charming and peaceful.
And from the beach (2 minutes walk from the cabanas) we did see some dolphins jumping just in front of us ! The day after, a fisherman came and sold us 5 king crabs for only 2000 pesos (= 1 king crab for 1 dollar !!!). We cooked it in our kitchen and had a delicious fresh seafood meal, much better than going to a restaurant in Ancud ...
As Sandra is also a great cooker and provides "Gourmet meal", we also had the pleasure to have dinner with them and enjoy Sandra's awesome dinner with fresh and organic products.
Next time we will come to Chiloé we will definitely come back at Sandra and Britt's place, and we highly recommend anyone to experiment and enjoy the peacefulness in their dream place.
Thank you again Britt and Sandra for this exceptional week.
Sandra and Britt were very kind and accommodating, and we enjoyed staying in their little guest cottage immensely. Their property is one of the most serene and beautiful places I've visited, and they made us feel right at home. They even gave us a ride to the bus station on Christmas morning with a grand send-off and a few slices of yule log baked by their charming and gifted little girls. I hope fortune allows us to stay with them again in the future!
Sandra and Britt were wonderful and welcoming hosts throughout our three day stay. We are from the U.S., my wife is originally from Chile and we were on our third trip together to Chile -- we had decided to check out Chiloe. We stayed in the top apartment with the loft. We had reserved a smaller studio but the larger flat was available and Sandra put us in there. It was roomier and we really appreciated the upgrade! We used the kitchen for most of our meals and that worked great. It rained quite a bit while we were there so we had a chance to hang out in the apartment and just relax and read. It was comfortable and relaxing and with incredible views! We took several walks -- the environment was beautiful with rolling hills and their property is right on the water. Ancud is also a cool little town that can keep one busy for a few days are an extended stay. They were kind enough to shuttle us back and forth as their schedule/work/errands permitted. Of special note, I was feeling under the weather when we arrived so Sandra offered to make some special tea -- well she delivered a delicious pot of ginger tea along with eggs from their chickens and fresh milk from their cow. That was above and beyond and a lovely touch. Highly recommended for a very relaxed, low key place in a beautiful setting with lovely hosts nearby.
