  • Description


    Hello! My name is Maribel. I live in a wonderful place by the beach in Chiloé... it's a land of 2.5ha. It's a wetland full of birds, some of them migrate from Alaska, some from Patagonia and other parts of the world. I am constructing a Glamping site and the landscape accordingly. My house is small but has room for one person on a loft area (note there's not enough room to stand up as triangle roof). I need help in construction and some landscape infrastructure... I also need help gardening and keeping the weeds down for the moment. I have three cats and some chicks that love visitors.

  • Accommodation


    I have a small house where I have a loft where one or two people can fit. The loft area is open as well as my room, so there is not so much privacy if you need so. We will be sharing the house and all its facilities of course. I also have a tent if you ever feel you want to be closer to nature.

    What else ...

    There is public transport 1.3km from my place. I can give you a lift most of the time either to the closest towns: Castro, Dalcahue, or to the bus stop. You can travel around the island, do some hiking, visit the national park in Cucao and other towns. In summer time you can visit the numerous traditional festivities around the islands. I can contact you with tourist operators to book your activities. I speak fluent English, but you can also practice your Spanish.
