Super quiet flat, and it feels like a real home because it is, it was my actual home. I rent it for 6 months or more. Message me!
Note: I welcome long-term rentals. Available from April 2015.
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.
The basics – the loft
The rent includes:
-All the furtinure (including some nice books) :)
-Internet (wi-fi 6Mb)
-Land line phone (just for local calls)
Right outside the entrance door to my loft you could park your bike.
Apart from all the necessary furniture, inside the flat you will also find:
-Sony LED tv 22’
-All the kitchen utensils and cookware
The basics – the building
-Barbecue space – 10th floor
-Swimming pool – 10th floor (not big enough to swim properly)
-Gym -1st floor
-Sauna – 1st floor (to use it you have to have at least 4 people and pay 5.000CLP each - too bad it is not free, I know)
-Laundry – 1st floor
-Alarm system in every flat
The idea is that you treat this house like yours, maybe even better than yours :). However, a few tips:
- do not sit on top of the dinner table.
- do not sit on top of the granito kitchen surface (it got already a little crack and it could have been because someone sat on it).
- take care of "Dollar", my plant :).
- leave the house always completely locked when you get out.
We stayed two and a half months in Paz` wonderful apartment. It`s a most individually decorated, cosy and comfortable place with a large modern kitchen ecquiped with high quality kitchen-ware. When you step in you at once feel like
at home. It`s well located near the metro station Los Heroes with two lines. You can
even walk to the center in 25 minutes. Supermarkets are close by. It`s situated in a safe and quiet neighbourhood. It`s just perfect for a longer stay in Santiago.
Paz is a perfect host. She helps where ever she can. We would in no way hesitate
to come back again.
Meus dias em Santiago no apartamento da Paz foram uma delícia. O lugar é lindo, bem equipado e bem localizado. Tudo o que você precisa encontra perto e facil vai a todos os pontos de interesse na cidade.
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!!!
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, London, Tierra del Fuego, La Isla del Sol, Valparaíso... long list.
