Description

The space

It’s a newly renovated apartment that overlooks the bay of Valparaiso. The view is unbeatable day and night. It has a well-tended garden, with different blooms depending on the season. Beyond the garden, you can see the roofs of the ravine, with beautiful cats that enjoy the sea view, placidly, freely and confident that life will provide.

It has an integrated living-dining-kitchen. Two futons (prince size) very comfortable and practical. The kitchen is fully equipped with utensils, appliances and towels. All crockery is white (beautifully designed), therefore easy to replace. It has linen for the three beds (double bed and 2 futons). All of the daily cleaning items are available. Radio / CD player with USB port and good speakers and a smart TV. The master bedroom suite with view has a large closet, a double bed and two nightstands with individual lamps. The bathroom is fully equipped. IMPECCABLE.

The building has administrative and cleaning staff. It has security cameras. For little money, you can get domestic service.

Guest access

The guest will be able to access the apartment and the garden, which is always full of flowers and friendly cats that come visit every day. The parking space may be available, but we cannot commit to that.

Interaction with guests

Although we do not live in Valparaiso, we are always connected so the guest can always write or call us and we'll be in touch. If it is necessary, we can travel to Valparaíso.

The neighborhood

The apartment is a 15 minute walk, and 5 minutes by colectivo, from the gastronomic center of Cerro Alegre, and 10 minutes from Valparaiso Cultural Park. The distance is even less to Plaza Bismark and Puppet Theatre and Museum Clown.

Getting around

To access you must walk up a staircase, typical of Valparaiso, called Bocaccio, but you can easily arrive by car, taxi or colectivo, which is the usual way to get around Valparaiso. During mass celebrations, there are no possibilities for parking inside the building, but there is availability around. We who have lived here over the holidays, think that it is best to move on foot or by colectivos, because they are very cheap and run frequently: a real institution in Valpo. In addition, in Chile is forbidden to drive after drinking.

Other things to note

This apartment has one problem for our family- … is so comfortable and it has such a beautiful sight!. Sometimes we lose the urge to go out and just stay there, contemplating what the world has to offer, enjoying the greatest luxury of this era: free time to allow to elapse before our eyes.

The residents of this building are professionals and academics who undertook this project as partners a few years ago, and remain organized, so coexistence is respectful and pleasant.

This place is amazing! We stayed for 18 nights. The views are fantastic and Catalina was so helpful. We loved the location and felt very safe. The bed is comfy, the kitchen is extremely well-stocked and the evenings are quiet. We never heard any loud children as other reviews suggest. There's a lovely garden out front and everything is easy walking distance, plus there's collective taxis and local buses that pass right in front of the apartment every 3 minutes (less than $1 US). The only issue we had was with the internet, but Catalina and Loreto were very helpful with it. They even bought a new router that was very fast. We work online so the internet was an issue for us as the balance kept running out. I think normal usage would be fine, plus Catalina is working on fixing it permenantly. The neighbour Maria is also very sweet and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. thanks Catalina, Loreto & Maria!!

Loreto and Catalina were absolutely wonderful hosts. The apartment was exactly as described in the listing. My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon in Valparaíso and couldn't have asked for a better place. We had some issues even getting to Chile thanks to our flight and were so exhausted by the time we arrived in Valparaíso. Entering the apartment was an immediate weight off our shoulders. After we dropped our bags, we just took a moment to take in the incredible view of the city. The view was probably our favorite part of the apartment. However we also loved the comfy bed and the useful kitchen. We only cooked dinner one night but the kitchen had everything we needed. Catalina gave us huge list of fantastic suggestions for breakfast, dinner, and general things to do. We used a lot of her recommendations and loved all of them. The apartment is situated in a great spot for walking to all the best spots in Valparaíso. If you're considering visiting Valparaíso I would highly recommend it. The city is beautiful and charming, the people are genuine and friendly, and the apartment is amazing. Catalina and Loreto are the perfect hosts and I hope my wife and I can return sooner than later.

We just spent seven wonderful weeks in this gorgeous apartment and loved everything about it. The location is great and close to Cerro Alegre and Cerro Concepcion where there are loads of restaurants, bars and cafes. It is also near Parque Cultural de Valparaíso if you want to chill out (green spaces are pretty rare). Loreto and Catalina are great hosts and were able to respond to any questions or concerns we had. They also provided recommendations for places to go and see. The apartment itself is fantastic. We ate in a lot of the time and found the kitchen to be very well equipped. Everything else you need is here - good bedding, good water pressure, Wifi, etc. We will always remember our time in Valparaiso and have this apartment to thank for a lot of it.

What a fantastic flat. We absolutely loved the place. Super clean, well equipped kitchen, stylish, homely, great bed, clean good quality sheets, good shower pressure and most of all, an incredible view. The lcoation is also ideal. Situated above the busy streets of Valpo but wihtin easy walking distance of the histroci old town and the surrounding cerros/hills. We loved exploring on foot and driving out to the beaches. The hosts themselves are fantastic. Easy to communicate with and extremely flexible and friendly. What else can I say!

Actualmente soy directora de Balmaceda Arte Joven, una institución que busca acercar la educación artística de calidad y gratuita a los jóvenes.
Estudié Trabajo social en la Universidad de Chile. He viajado bastante, pero nunca suficiente. Hice clases en la Universidad Sek de Gestión Patrimonial y trabajé en el Ministerio de Cultura de mi país. Actualmente vivo junto a mi marido (arquitecto), nuestros tres hijos ya dejaron el nido. Me gusta mucho el teatro y el cine, leer novelas, revistas, el (URL HIDDEN) falta tiempo para leer. Conozco bien mi ciudad, Santiago, y merece buenas recomendaciones. Viví en Valparaíso 4 años, tengo un segundo hogar en esta ciudad inverosímil, que es uno de los espacios que les ofrezco. En la relación huesped/anfitrión busco el justo equilibrio entre la contención y el apoyo con el respeto a las dinámicas propias. Como viajera soy muy independiente, me gusta descubrir las ciudades como si yo fuera de ese lugar. Pero también agradezco salir acompañada a sitios menos seguros. Tengo serios problemas con los idiomas. Nunca he logrado salir de la categoría 'básico' en inglés. Creo que sólo mi 'portuñol' es avanzado, adoro ese idioma y toda la cultura lusitana. Pero, felizmente, he podido moverme sin mucha dificultad por países de otras lenguas.
Conocer el mundo, incluido mi propio país, es lo que más me gusta hacer en la vida. Yourcenar tiene un libro que se llama 'Una vuelta por mi cárcel' aludiendo a un proverbio que dice ¿Quién podría ser tan necio de vivir su vida sin dar una vuelta por su cárcel?
Gracias a los viajes, además de conocer algo del mundo, he construido valiosas amistades con personas de distintas culturas.
Desde hace un tiempo mi hija Catalina se ha hecho cargo de nuestras relaciones públicas. Estudia Pedagogía en Inglés, por lo que se maneja en el idioma y es sobre todo una bella persona: humana solidaria, correcta alegre y sociable. Créanme, les encantará tratar con ella.
