José fue un buen anfitrión disponible y reservado, el apartamento está justo como las fotos, hermosa vista de Valparaíso y el personal de palacio de gran ayuda!
A nice and clean place to stay, I and my girlfriend stayed for some weeks and we loved it. Very safe area and a nice view. the apartment is well equipped. José Phillipi was always available when we needed.
The apartment is very well situated in the central hills of Valparasio, not to high, not to low, just right. We were a family of 5 that ranged in age from 7 yrs. to 45 yrs old. We enjoyed the walking this city has, along with the driving ability. The view from the balcony is wonderful. It provided us with the perfect view of the New Year's celebration fireworks along the harbor. The pictures that Jose has associated with the rental are spot on. Everything worked well with no limitations. When booking this rental, Jose was prompt in his response and attentive to our needs. My family and I sincerely thank Jose for providing us with the wonderful accommodations in a city we had never visited.
Made a last minute reservation with Jose. He was able to meet our timetable without hassle. Excellent apartment for short term or long term stays. Easy access and amazing view!
Wonderful, secure, clean 3B apartment on the 17th floor of the building Costa Mirador, one of the nicest buildings in Valparaiso. Located on Avenue Alemania, with easy access to La Sebastiana, famous Pablo Nerudas house, 15min walk; to Paseo Yugoslavo and the beautiful Baburizza Museum, cafes, 25min walk; to the city 15min walk. The mini bus 612, stops in front of the building, will take you to Vina Del Mare and back with no fuss.
Todo fue muy bien! El departamento es hermoso y me enamoró con Valparaíso. Es una ciudad mágico. José es una persona muy amable y recomiendo el y su departamento a quien sea. M-A-R-A-V-I-L-L-O-S-O
Jose was extremely attentive and helpful. The apartment was just as described and had amazing views of Valparaiso. We would definitely recommend his apartment to others!
José was very kind and came to get us at the bus station, which made meeting up and finding the place not an issue at all. He also drove us back to the bus station when we had to go back for a lost item. He was also flexible in meeting us in town to get apt keys back on our departure date, instead of at the apartment, which was wonderful.
The apartment is just as shown in the pictures (very beautiful and thoughtfully decorated with everything one needs to cook meals *no spices*). We got up/down the hill where his apt is using taxis (about 1500 pesos ($3) and it is important to note that his place is in a well known avenue and all taxis know where his building is (one only has to tell the driver the name of the building and they know it, since it really stands out). It is not within short walking distance to restaurants, etc, but if you like walking or feel ok about public transit, it is not out of the way and the view is worth it!
I would make sure to check with José, before you arrive, about security deposit expectations (we did not expect to have to leave one and ended up leaving one and getting it back without any problems). I would also make sure to ask that he leaves enough clean towels for all who are staying with you, as well as clean sheets. Some of us had brought our own towels so this was not as big of a deal as it could've been but we were cold during the night and could've really used having more clean sheets. Finally, there was a really nice flat screen TV w surround sound in the main bedroom which was really nice since we were exhausted at night and ended up all watching (four of us) a silly movie before bed.
All in all, this was a great place to stay in and José was a nice host. Again, do check in with him about clean towels, sheets, security deposit beforehand and you should be all set. If you want to stay in a very centrally located place, this is not it yet it's easy to get to those places from here and you get a gorgeous view. Oh, and he has created a little guidebook on airbnb for Valparaíso noting the places he likes in the city, which you should check out!
We were happy that Jose answered us very quickly. We needed to find the place for stay in just 4 hours in the same day. We got the response in an hour, booked, packed then were on our way from Santiago to Valparaiso. From apartment you can see the town and from the terrace on the 19th floor - even 360 degree view. Apartment is very cosy, our daughter was happy to have her own room - children's room. You can have your cup of coffee or tea on the balcony - I enjoyed very much the evening/night views over Valparaiso. Cultural center is in 20 min. walking distance, it is safe. 15min by taxi till bus station - form there you could go by bus all around Chile. Jose arranged taxi for us for the morning when we needed to leave and we got till Santiago airport in 2hours by bus.
We stayed at Jose's apartment for the month of February and enjoyed every moment there. The apartment is perfectly located for seeing all the sites of Valparasio. The view from the balcony is spectacular and we spent many hours there. The apartment is well equiped with everything you need for a great vacation away from home. Jose, our host, was very accomodating and although we didn't need to call on him once he was available for any help we may have needed. The apartment was well prepared for our arrival and very clean. I can't say enough good things about this place. Just SUPER!
We will have very very fond memories of this place for many years to come. God Bless and thank you again Jose.
