Greetings from Bariloche!
Machi Venzano Gonzalez, one of the decorators of the legendary Hotel Llao Llao and Patagonia store owner The Juncos, tested in her home that creativity has no plans or strategies. Inspired by the glorious landscape of Bariloche and making use of unsuspected resources, she putted together the structure of her home from a barn and letting herself being surprised by the elements, completed the work in the decoration.
In coming to this place, part of the decision was to stay with the basics, useful, necessary and beautiful. That is why that to the simplicity of her home you can ad functionality and versatility.
The property is perfectly situated to make the most of everything Bariloche has to offer.
I speak fluid Spanish, English and Portuguese (native language). Let me know if you have any further questions before booking!! I look forward to welcoming you to Bariloche !
A home made adventure.
We stayed in the cottage in the first week of march. Overall, the place is wonderful and Nuno and Machi, the owner, are lovely people. The cottage is exactly as described in the pictures and has everything to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable. A car is very helpful around Bariloche, as the attractions are scattered all over. Our only issue is about the owner´s dogs. If you are not a dog lover, maybe the cottage is not the place for you, as the
dogs come and go all the time and like to "play" with the guests. I am a bit afraid of dogs and the experience was not very pleasant.
Other than that, the place is just perfect!
This was our second time in Bariloche and we already knew Nuno from our first visit that was great. Nuno is a beautiful person and a great host!
When we arrived to the cottage we met lovely Machi who was welcoming us with a delicious home made frambuesa cake. There are no words to describe her house. We were totally in love with it since our first step in. We literally spent the 6 days inside the house. It´s decorated in the most beautiful way, so warm, cozy, peaceful, everything is done with a great taste.
This house was more than perfect for us.
We wished we could have stayed longer.
We are certainly coming back as soon as we can! Muchísimas gracias Machi y Nuno, we have no words!!! we really hope to see you again soon!
Big love for both of you!
The pictures don't do the cottage justice. The cottage is warm with rustic charm. Machi was divine meeting us along with Nuno with freshly baked coffee cake. As is common in south america our flight was delayed but Nuno was there waiting for us at the appointed meeting place Lo de Maria. Nuno was a fantastic host providing great recommendation an not to miss places to visits and great places to eat. He even arranged a rental car for us when the rental car companies were booked up. Nuno is very friendly, easy to talk to and overall a great guy. The grounds around the cottage are magnificent with lots of little places to hang out, catch some sun, gaze at the lake and generally relax. Our 5 day visit which came at the end of our 3 week trip was just what we needed to rejuvenate and de-stress. Thanks Nuno & Machi, we definitely recommend your place.
This cottage was perfect in every way! The private location and beautiful design, the gorgeous flowers and the peaceful surroundings were exactly what I was hoping for. Nuno was super easy to communicate with and incredibly responsive to all of our questions. I hope to return!!! Thank you for a wonderful holiday week.
Esta casita es perfecta! La ubicación, diseño, jardín, etc. fueron exactamente que busque para mis vacaciones. Nuno también es tan amable! Muchísimas gracias por todo!!!
This was actually our AirBnB debut, and honestly we couldn't have asked for any better first-time experience. From our very initial booking request to the final key exchange Nuno was downright helpful, very punctual, informative on the area's hidden treasures (sights as well as local eateries, best grocery places, etc.) and truly went the extra mile to give us a stay not to forget. From A-Z we felt his honest and true interest in our visit, which sure helps when it's your first time dealing with a platform like AirBnB.
This is indeed THE one and only cottage. We have no words! The views from the patio is out of this world, whilst you may enjoy a sip of your morning coffee or the Malbec wine at sunset. Machi (the owner) lives in the other end of the fantastic garden, and she has done such an inspiring job with the decor, making you feel home by the first minute. She even welcomed us with home-made banana cake, let us take whatever needed from the kitchen garden/green house, and else leaves you to really take in the magic of this place (although I'm sure she is more than willing to help you with any issue that might pop-up during your stay). The place is really bigger than the pictures seem to tell. Its clean, the kitchen is fully equiped, the Wi-Fi works fine (if you'll even need that against the calm and tranquil feel around the estate), and - again - the views are picture perfect.
We are accustomed to dogs, and so came to love Mendieta and Cacho who comes and goes, but are raised not to enter the cottage itself. Accordingly, they will be your friends and loves to hang-out merely out at the patio. Machi asked whether they were any problem to us, but as mentioned we really enjoyed their company (though I'm sure she can keep them away from you if you are not a particular fan of dogs).
Basically this was by far our best accommodation so far on our three-month tour around South America (even compared to some five-star hotels that we've also stayed at), and we're already looking to return one day and take in what Bariloche's finest spot has to offer. Our warm and best recommendation goes out to Nuno, Machi, Mendieta, Cacho, and THE one and only cottage. Gracias por todo!
We stayed here for a part of our honeymoon and had a great experience. The cottage was warm and clean and very charming. Nuno was a great host and we are very happy. He helped us to book taxis and even gave us a bus pass for the area. We did not have a car and did not find this a problem. If you do all yor shopping first and bring it to the house then you can walk to lots of places or use the bus. Thank you!
We spent 10 wonderful days in the cottage and were so lucky to have chosen one of Nuno's rentals. Talking about the very best first: Nuno is one of the best hosts you'll ever come across! Very caring, very helpful, super easy to reach - he even drove us to the supermarket and back on the day we arrived which was incredibly nice of him :). The cottage itself is adorable and beautifully furnished. Very spacious as well which we hadn't expected and the view is stunning. If you haven't got a car there's a bus station right down the driveway. But the area the cottage is in (km 20 and past) is much more beautiful than downtown Bariloche itself anyway we thought; a perfect spot really :).
Only thing that bothered us while we were there are the two dogs of the owner (who lives on the property as well). They're big and not well behaved (jumping up, playfully biting hands...). We're not used to dogs and like them from the distance more than up close ;) - if you love dogs however you'll be fine. If not, ask Nuno to help you chose among all his other beautiful rental properties!
Can't recommend Nuno highly enough - thanks so much, we hope to see you again soon :)!! And do ask him about his favourite restaurants, we had some of the best meals ever there.
Beautiful and peaceful little cottage, we wish we could have stayed longer! When we arrived, along with Nuno, the owner Machi was on site to welcome us and show us the cottage and explain everything we needed to know, she even left us some little cakes she had baked for us and left some fresh cut flowers from the garden, very lovely. Nuno is a very welcoming, friendly and accommodating guy, he was always easy to reach and quick to respond to any questions we had, we hope to cross paths with him in the future!
Great chalet, cozy and perfect. Everything was excellent. Nuno is a great guy, professional and engaged in making things go well.
The cottage is even better in real life! It is quiet, clean and tastefully furnished. We had a great time here and recommend anyone to stay here. Due to its location, a car is highly recommended. Would have been a bit of a hassle without one.
Nuno is a great host and made sure nothing was missing for our stay.
Would definitely stay here again next time.
