We are two friends, James and Evelyne. James is originally from Texas and Evelyne is from the south of Chile and grew up in Valparaíso. We recently have undertaken a renovation project in an old 1800's building in the center of historic Valparaiso to convert the third floor into a guest house and event center.
The house is located just a few blocks from the main square so transportation is very easy.
At the moment it's very basic; our objective is to clean, paint, furnish, decorate, and anything else that's included in the scope of preparing a now unoccupied flat into a welcoming space for guests. Amenities will improve as we work; at the moment we have beds (possibly in private rooms since we have 9 rooms in total), hot water, a basic kitchen space, wifi, electricity, lights, etc.
We'll provide your food and drink during your stay.
We'll also be happy to help you get to know Valparaíso, relax and converse in English or Spanish, and help you get to know Chile better.
Help in the house
We're happy to help you get to know Valparaíso better, to enjoy typical Chilean food and drink, and learn from our combined experience of Chile as a foreigner and a local. We can help you improve your spanish if needed and help you find other fascinating places in Chile to continue your journey.
Anyone who is willing to help with general house renovation is welcome. Specifically we'll be cleaning floors and walls of dust, repainting, building bunk beds and furniture, and various other things along those lines. We'd be especially happy if you have previous experience in carpentry, but it's not required.
