Great little apartment with lovely views of the mountains and situated in a nice, village-like neighborhood with plenty of dining and bar options. Also very conveniently located 1 block away from the main metro line in town.

The Space

The apartment has one of the best views in town -- an unblemished view of the San Cristobal hill with the virgin statue, the Mapocho River and the Andes to the northeast.

More importantly, it's in a really safe neighborhood yet vibrant with lots of bars and restaurants, unlike many of the top listings in Airbnb that are in dingy and unlit areas of downtown.

The Manuel Montt area of Providencia is an elegant neighborhood with old fashioned shops from the 1960s and 1970s and is safe at all times of day. The immediate area has become a fashionable to dine without getting the noise and crowds associated with Bellavista. Within a few blocks you can eat Irish, Catalan, Belgian, Spanish, Japanese and French cuisine! We have an Irish Bar two blocks away, the fashionable Liguria Bar two blocks away, two theaters on the same block, metro station a block away, 24-hour all nighter stores, a gym and a riverside park fashionable with joggers. And yet it's quiet at night!

The building was completed in 2010 and the one-ambience living room + kitchen have been decorated in a modern style. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes herbs and spices so you can cook without having to buy everything. We have the lovely Providencia food market a few blocks away. The bedroom comes with an ample supply of bedclothes and towels should you be planning a longer stay. The flat is ideal for a couple with dining area for two.
When you get here the wine rack is full and there even a couple of whites in the fridge. You just pay for what you use and at it's priced at reasonable rates.

Interaction with Guests

I will most likely leave you the key with our 24-hour receptionists during office hours as I have a day-job! I am always just a phone call or email away if you need anything!

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood has everything at hand. Old shops, metro station, buses, great little bars and restaurants (I have Irish, Thai, Catalan, Uruguayan, Belgian, Chilean, French all within two blocks!!). We even had a theater a block away, and ice cream parlor from the 1950s. What more can I say?

Getting around

Yes, metro serving the main line a block. Lots of buses.

  • Although we did not meet Matthew in person he was very helpful via the internet and answered questions very promptly. The apartment was clean and modern and very comfortable with a balcony offering terrific views of Provendencia. The local area was very safe and provided plenty of things to do. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to other travellers.

  • My husband and I were really satisfied with Matt's place. Communication with him was super easy, the place itself had everything we needed for a week stay including laundry downstairs. The area in Providencia is close to a money exchange, express supermarket and tons of restaurants/ bars if you are willing to walk a couple of minutes. Neighborhood felt very safe and the building itself had a personal door/ security person. I was really concerned about heat before going because I am always cold, but the heating unit on the wall was so warm at times even I was hot! Over all great experience.

  • The stay in Santiago was great. The apartment is exactly like the pictures. It is really nice located and with a really nice view. And Matthew as a host was great. Everything that we need he quickly answered. I would definitely stay there again.

  • Matthew is extremely friendly and accommodating! The apartment was spotlessly clean and very comfortable.

  • Matthew's pad is great: it has a great view and is well located. Communicating with him was easy, he would answer fast. Only downfall was that the internet was not reliable 24/7, it would only work 3/4 of the time. That's pretty much the only negative, the rest was fabulous!

  • Nice little flat very close to Manuel Montt Metrostation. Matt was always there, when I needed him. I think there are a lot of younger inhabitants in the building, since I heard a lot of partying going on :-).
    If you don't mind that it's a great place with free wifi, english tv-programs and a nice kitchen. Matt even provides a mobile phone.
