  • Description


    We are a chilean couple, a teacher (spanish for foreigners and english) and an architect. our place has a great location since its right on the border of Valparaíso and Viña del mar which are continuous cities and there is good transportation, you can be in downtown Valparaíso or Viña in less then 15 minutes, You can enjoy the bohemian lifestyle in Valparaíso or go to the beach in Viña.

    And here at Valparaíso we are hidden from the city even though we are right in the middle of it, we are in a peaceful hillside where you can relax in a hamock and help us make this beautiful place into an even better place.

    There is plenty to do in both cities and the possibility to go to nearby places aswell. You can visit the 43 hills full of color , patrimonial areas and art in Valparaíso. And go to the beaches in the garden city and nearby towns. You can also enjoy the hammocks right here and use the small spa. If you like seafood you can walk to caleta portales and meet the fisherman as they are coming back to shore with fresh fish. Transportation is a short block away.
