About this listing
Has a pool open during summer and central heating for the winter! This room is comfortable and bright, the building and neighborhood are very safe. 4 subway stops away from downtown. Also available for long stays. Has a large desk for students.
This is a beautiful private room, with a shared bathroom in a shared apartment where I live. The apartment is 1 kilometer away from Irarrazabal Metro Station to link on to Santiago's very safe and clean subway system.
The room is 7,8 square meters, has a xl double bed (2 meters long, 1.35 m wide), a bedside table, a lamp and a large desk.
The apartment has central heating!!! its lovely and toasty!! (although only active during the Winter- May to August), there is a radiator inside each bedroom and one in the living room. This is not a common feature in Chile.
The apartment is very well located, central but far enough to avoid downtown's noisy environment, many guests have been gladly surprised for the quiet night in such the big city.
The apartment is large (100m2). The building is very modern, with a pool, sauna, jacuzzi, small-gym (The pool is free and the other prices are low, the pool is open only in the summer).
The common areas: living room/dinning room & kitchen are available to the guests at all times, the idea is for you to feel as if you were at home!
The rent includes full house privileges: Internet via WIFI, kitchen, TV and DVD in the living room, washing machine and basic expenses (water, electricity and gas) plus a cleaning lady every other week.
Smoking is only allowed on the balcony.
Interaction with Guests
I work so I am usually away office hours on weekdays, but I like to enjoy dinner with my guests when possible and if they want to.
I live at this apartment, I shift between rooms according to which are rented.
The building is 2 blocks from supermarkets, and several pharmacy's. Also ten minutes away (walking) is the trendy barrio Italia with several cool little boutiques, lovely restaurants and coffee shops, within walking distance we have thai, peruvian, vietnamese, indian, italian, sushi and of course chilean restaurants.
A jump (180m) from Irrarazabal/Salvador Intersection, it has plentiful transport all day until maybe 1am when frequency goes down but buses continue to run all night long. If in a hurry, taxis are cheap since we are pretty close to downtown and Providencia.
The apartment is 1 kilometer away from Irarrazabal Metro Station to link on to Santiago's very safe and clean subway system. Remember that Santiago's subway only works until 11pm.
Other Things to Note
We have plenty of hot water, the water boiler works continuously, automatic and is central to the building, not inside the apartment.
The internet connection is fast, 15mbps download and 1,4mbps upload.
The apartment is on a second floor in case you are afraid of our Chilean earthquakes, although you should feel safe anywhere in this regard since Santiago's arquitecture has proved to be well prepared for these events.
Guests are allowed to use the washing machine and all other appliances of the common areas, the idea is for everyone to feel as though they were at home!
Clean sheets & towels will be provided for every guest and the sheets will be changed by the cleaning lady every 2 weeks. If the guest desires to wash his/her sheets more often the washing machine is always available to be used.
All guests are required to wash their dirty dishes, cutlery, pots an pans after using them. It is also very important to put them away once they have dried.
To avoid clogging the plumbing, please, do not let food debris enter the drain of the sink.
My name is Camila, I'm 33 years old and I have a B.A in Biotechnology from Universidad de Chile.
I have a full time job. In my spare time I enjoy watching series or a movie, going out to eat, watch a band or go dancing.
I like having people floating around my apartment since it feels like it becomes more alive. I love sharing with people from different cultures. To have conversations over home prepared diverse meals.
I have several listings, some of them are located at my apartment and the others at friends or my parents apartments: Rodrigo and Nancy, whom are also wonderful hosts.
I hope all my guests feel very welcome, with the freedom and independence to do what they may.
