If you are looking for an experience away from the fast-pace of the rest of Chile, the island of Chiloe is perfect for you. Come and enjoy the mystical atmosphere of the island from this beautiful beachside casita and connect with its unique and extraordinary nature. Sit and enjoy the environment surrounding you from all directions and your soul will find itself at peace.
We have a beautiful rental home, situated meters from the beach, with a private bathroom and kitchenette. Watch dolphins jumping in and out of the water, and enjoy the peace and quiet of the country. This little house is located close to our yoga shala where you are invited to practice if you are so inclined.
We are a family of five: mother, father, and three lively, lovely girls. We are fortunate have four beautiful dogs, a cat, many chickens, and a lot of beautiful wildlife around us. We love cooking, and grow some of our own food. We like exploring the beaches and forests of our island home--we are very active and creative ... some of us practice yoga to varying degrees.
Parking spaces and WiFi are included.
For free our guest have access to a private beautiful beach and walks in the forest. In addition, through our tourism company Austral Adventures, we can set you up with various tours in the area. Just ask!
For a reasonable fee, our guests have access to:
Sea Kayaks, paddle boards, yoga (private or groups class), cooking classes and a climbing room.
Freshly made meals can also be arranged: We can make a special private meal or you can join our family for a meal, breakfast and dinner can be eaten at the studio or in our sunroom.
Interaction with Guests
We all love to meet new people of all ages, countries, and cultures. If they have kids, we welcome their kids to play with with ours. The fact that we have live near by gives them the chance to choose interactions, things do happen in a natural kind of way. We like open-minded, free-spirited, and peaceful people who are aware and respectful of all living things.
We don't have many neighbours, the few we have live up the hill and they are wonderful people. We are lucky to be surrounded by nature and feel fortunate to have a large property and that gives us a lot or privacy.
There is public transport and there are also taxis to and from Ancud. They can take our guests up to the top of the hill (400 mts. walk from the property)
If our guests rent their own car, a 4x4 will come all the way to the property, but a 4x2 will have to stay 400 mts up the hill. Everyone who stayed was happy to walk and we help them out when needed.
Other Things to Note
We love and respect nature and have created a life here on this magnificent island where the air is clean, the rain is fresh and the storms are powerful. Chiloe is a generous and magical island that has welcomed us and gave us a home, we hope to help you have a taste of it and welcome you to paradise, for real ! even in the strongest storm with horizontal rain, you will feel that you are in paradise, all we want is to treat Chiloe and the beautiful Chilotes with the same respect they show towards us.
We truly value respecting each other, the land and the nature around us. We welcome people who share these important values.
One last note about provisions:
Please buy your food in town before coming to stay, as there are no markets or shops nearby. There are, fishermen who stop on the beach--and you are welcome to buy fresh seafood from their catches--but this opportunity depends on weather conditions and other factors... so it is best to bring food (and anything else you might need from town) with you when you arrive. Thank you for having read it all and see you in Chiloe!
Thirteen years ago we built our house and little y little a few places for guests to stay. We live in our property permanently and here we bring up a family surrounded by nature in a very pristine environment. Our neighbors are dispersed in the countryside and we are very fortunate to have them close but not too close so we are still have a lot of privacy in every way There are no shops near our house so guest will have to bring their own food form town (6.4 km away). However, when our fishermen neighbors go pass with wonderful seafood and fish our guest can buy directly from them at the beach. Besides the restaurants in Ancud, the nearest restaurant is in a town called Quetalmahue, about 8km from us towards the Pacific side (opposite direction to Ancud). If you are not with a car we can organize your pick from the bus station and we can do the same to take you into town at the end of your stay, this must be arranged with time. We go daily to take our kids to school and to go to work so you can have a ride with us if you can adjust to our schedule. There is public transport you can use to get into town at any other times.
All of our guest find our place unique and beautiful, we know you will not regret
