Jorge es un excelente anfitrión. El y su novia estuvieron muy pendientes de que nuestra estadía y paso por Paracas fueran lo mas provechoso posible. Conocen muy bien la zona y saben exactamente que recomendar. Duma y Jack (sus perros) no molestan en lo mas mínimo. La casa es increíble! La vista, los detalles en los cuartos y los baños no tiene nada que envidiarle a un hotel! Recomiendo altamente visitar Paracas y alojarse donde Jorge!
Llegamos a las 10 pm y mi hermano a las 3 am y Jorge nos recibió sin ningún problema, desayuno rico en la mañana y vista a la bahía de Paracas, muy agradable y lindo lugar, 100% recomendable!
Increíble experiencia en Paracas. Fuimos por 3 días, unas piezas amplias con una vista increíble y muy cerca del parque nacional Paracas y de todos los hoteles. Lo recomiendo completamente..!!!
We had a great trip to Paracas. Jorge was a great host and has created a very tranquil and beautiful beach suite. I would highly recommend this place to others.
I stayed 12 days in Villa Kite at the end of November 2013 mostly for kitesurfing. I thought it was a nice alternative between the +$200 resorts on the Bay and the $40 backpackers hostels in town. The hosts, Jorge and Fabiola, are really nice people. They live on the premises so they are here for you if you need anything. They will also tell you everything there is to know about Paracas and the surroundings. It was nice to hang out in town with them and the other visitors for drinks and food. Each room of the building has a different size and different bed layout so there is one to best accommodate your needs. The breakfast is included. It consists of coffee, tea, bread, butter, jam and fruit juice.
General comments: If you can, it's probably better to have a car since the restaurants and food markets in town are 2 or 3 km away. A car is also very useful if you want to go to the National Reserve often (for kitesurfing for example).
Kitesurfing comments: The interesting wind starts around 2:40 pm (+ or - 1 hour) until sunset (around 6:30). It's a SW wind. For the time I was there, the SW wind blew from 12 knots to 25 knots (most of the time closer to 17 knots). In the morning, the wind is generally NW, weaker and unreliable. The main kitesurfing spot in the bay is about 500 m SW of villa kite. But if the wind is sufficient and if you can ride upwind, you can launch from Villa Kite. It is not really recommended to launch anywhere N of Villa Kite since there would be too many sting rays (for example from Hotel Paracas). When the wind is too light in the bay, you can chase the wind in the National Reserve where it's 3 to 8 knots higher (like in Zarate, Playon or Mendieta).
Jorge's place is great, the place is better in real, then in the pictures. He is also a very friendly host and enjoys socializing.
Jorge was a great host. Paracas is a bit confusing on transportation (at least to us) and he helped us get there and book our tours throughout Las Ballestas and Ica. It was great chatting with him and his background... him, his fiance, and his friends were all great people. The room was very comfortable, big, and clean. He has three dogs and they are very friendly and entertaining. It was his fiance's birthday the weekend we went, and he was kind enough to invite us to a bbq for her. It was a great way to relax after the Ica trail.
I will say that I thought the weekend was sufficient time to stay, unless you kiteboard. We definitely had enough time to do it all. Paracas real estate seems odd to me right now, because hotels are either very expensive (he is right next to the Double Tree), or very cheap (hostels downtown). Jorge's place is a good in between if you want a bit of beach luxury without the big pricetag.
Thank you Jorhe, we had a great trip!!
We stayed at Villa Kite over New Year's Eve, and we had a wonderfully relaxing and fun time with Jorge, Fabiola and the dogs. The suites are situated very close to the nature reserve, so it's convenient to visit the beautiful beaches and scenic look out points. Jorge was incredibly helpful in planning our daily itineraries to see a pisco/winery near the town of Pisco, a flight over the Nazca lines, and what to see in the nature reserve. He and Fabiola welcomed us into the BBQ they had for NYE with their friends, and it was a very memorable experience making new friends while counting down the clock to 2013. The view from the 2nd story room where we stayed is great. We would come home after our day trips to the balcony for reading and a glass of wine while enjoying the view. Highly recommended!
It was wonderful staying with Jorge at Villa Kite. A perfect alternative to staying in a large hotel. Jorge spent lots of time showing us the unique aspects of Paracas. For a small fee, we took a day trip to the natural reserve where he guided us through the amazing landscape. He was also always there with a gracious offer to take us into town to grab something great to eat. Jorge was very friendly and beyond helpful during our stay and I would recommend Villa Kite to anyone interested in kite surfing, the natural environment, and someone avoiding a large hotel experience (you can still access the nearby Double Tree for breakfast). Thanks Jorge and Duma!
