Quiet Loft in Downtown Santiago

Loft - Entire home/apt · José Miguel Carrera, Santiago, Santiago Metropolitan Region, Chile

The Space

Note: I welcome long-term rentals. I am open to negotiate the rent.
Available from the 15th to the 24th of January 2014.

My loft is located in a unique building in the heart of the city. The building mixes a lovely restored and refurbished old house (which includes 10 lofts), with new lofts and apartments. My loft faces the old house; you can enter the building through the old house. There are very few new apartment buildings in Santiago that recover and value the very old and traditional mansions of the late nineteenth century mixing them with new architecture. It is a 2 floors and 55m2 modern loft. There is a lot of light throughout the day. The first floor has an open kitchen and in the second floor you’ll find the bedroom and bathroom.

It is super centrally located, only 2 blocks from two of the most central metro stations, and less than one block from the main avenue in Santiago: “Alameda”, where you can find tons of shops and at least 3 different banks, and public buses or taxis to anywhere you want. It is also 3 blocks away from the bus station that you can use to come and go to the airport. Yet, it is a very quiet loft. It is 15 minutes walk -or 3 metro stations- from the main train station: Estación Central, where you can take trains to Southern Chile, or buses to Argentina or anywhere else in Chile. It is 6 minutes walk to one of the most beautiful little neighbourhoods in Santiago, Barrio Concha y Toro, with some very cool restaurants (like the Zully, voted once like one of the best in the city); 5 minutes walk to Barrio Brazil, a very bohemian neighbourhood; 18 minutes walk to the Presidential Palace La Moneda and all the civic centre, with its many shops, banks, museums, libraries. And the neighbourhood itself is full of history and it has a lot of character: small, countryside-like corner shops, universities, old churches. The neighbourhood is actually called Barrio Universitario (University Neigborhood). You could also visit the very old but newly opened Museo de la Solidaridad Salvador Allende: a 11 minutes walk. It is only 2 metro stations from some of the best places in Santiago: el Mercado Central (you can eat amazing sea food there), La Vega (the perfect market to find everything: fruits, vegetables, nuts, etc.), and Parque Forestal. And after only 4 metro stations, or a 30 minutes walk, you can visit Barrio Bellavista, where the poet Pablo Neruda built one of his houses, maybe the most bohemian neighbourhood in Santiago.

  • Paz is an excellent & considerate host who made us feel very welcome in Santiago. We liked her apartment so much we stayed in it twice. Of the five apartments we stayed used in Santiago hers was by far the best. It was really nice to have a properly equipped kitchen, with pots and pans, sharp knives etc. It is well located, in a nice neighbourhood, and within walk of the city centre and three subway stops.

  • Paz's apartment is as shown in pictures and makes you feel right at home. My boyfriend and I stayed there for a month and have no complaints. The kitchen is a great size and has all the cooking supplies one could need to cook a decent meal. The bed is also very comfortable and there is plenty of natural light that comes into the apartment during the day. Furthermore, the place is very secure and the grounds are clean. My only advice is to be careful if coming or going at night- but that goes for anywhere you stay!

  • This was a fantastic experience. Such a perfect little spot to stay, the location was nice and Paz had everything totally in order when we arrived (even two beers waiting for us!). We had no problems with the place, it was delightful, and Paz was totally available for any questions we had about the building. Highly recommend it!

  • Paz's beautiful apartment is one of the best I've stayed in with airbnb. The photos represent the apartment well, and Paz has the place furnished and decorated nicely. The kitchen is well equipped, and it was a pleasure to cook with quality cookware again. Despite it being the hottest time of year, the apartment stays relatively cool without requiring airconditioning, and catches a lovely breeze in the evenings. The area is quiet and safe. Although there are not many restaurants or bars around, it is a short walk to Barrio Brasil, and only two blocks to the metro which will take you anywhere. Only a few short stops to some of the best eating and drinking areas of Santiago, and three stops to Santiago's largest fruit and vegetable market, La Vega. There is a big supermarket within a couple of blocks of the apartment also. The wifi was excellent, which was great for me keeping in touch with people back home.

    I was very comfortable in Paz's apartment and would highly recommend it to anyone coming to Santiago. Paz is a great host too, and will go out of her way to make sure you feel comfortable.

  • Our stay in the loft appartment was fantastic, it's in a great location near to some great neighbourhoods of Santiago and perfect for catching the metro. Paz was a great host even tho we never met her in person due to it being new year, but she organised for her brother and friend to look after us and even arranged getting us DVDs when the cable tv wasn't working. She always responded to any questions and gave us good advise. I would reccomend Paz and the appartment to anyone staying in Santiago, it has everything you need and more with the roof top pool be a great bonus!!!

  • Paz was a wonderful host! The apartment was conveniently located, clean, bright, comfortable and safe. We had a really delightful holiday. Thank you so much for everything!

  • I very much enjoyed staying in Paz's apartment. It is clean and well decorated, in a quiet neighborhood and nice building. The downtown area and Providencia neighborhoods are just a few metro stops away. I definitely recommend it.

    December 2012
  • This is a beautiful apartment in a charming neighbourhood. Only 5 minutes on the metro to the centre. There are 2 big supermarkets within 5 minutes walk of the apartment. Barrio Brasil is right across the road.

    The apartment itself is tastefully decorated, clean, bright and new. Paz is really amazing and made sure that everything was just perfect.

    I would love to stay here again!

About
I love my city, but I only do it now cause I´ve had the chance to discover more about its old, historic side. Santiago is yet a place to be discovered. I also love books, movies (not much the chick flicks), mountains (and being on top of them), London, Tierra del Fuego, La Isla del Sol, Valparaíso... there is along list. I´m also in love with the Chileans, the ones that go out to the streets to demand their rights, without fear, with conviction and passion. I lived in Europe for a few years… I still have to discover much of the amazing Latin America.
