Noisy, unclean, owner never refunded deposit

  • 1 of 5
I booked this apartment due to the photos and the great reviews. That said I never write reviews. As you will see there is a reason for this review.

The owner was difficult from the start of the process. Demanded a months rent for a deposit, and was not flexible on payment methods.

The apartment was filthy on check in. No one arrived for several hours after I picked up the keys at 5 pm in the day. When a person showed up, he spoke no English, demanded being paid, asked if I had any questions, explained that I was basically forcing him out of the apartment, then promptly left.


There was hair on the floor in the bathroom as well as it not being cleaned, carpets were badly stained, hard wood floors badly scratched, windows were badly oxidized from the weather and appeared to never have been cleaned. There was no inventory, or check in procedure of any type.

During the day, it was difficult to concentrate on work. Buses and people from the street below made a lot of noise. The apartment is quite a ways from grocery stores, restaurants, and taking the bus was not a fun option despite the suggestion of the owner.

I stayed in the apartment for two months. I gave advanced notice of checkout. However a day before checkout, I got an email explaining to leave the keys at the front desk, and they would refund my deposit after checking out the apartment that weekend.

Well two more weeks passed before the owner returned to the apartment, and I received an email explaining that the cushions for the balcony furniture were missing, as was the coffee table. I explained that I did not know that, that maybe the cushions blew away in a strong wind (the pillows), but I never remembered a coffee table.

After about 10 exchanges of emails on the same subject, The owner said she was going to refund my deposit promptly. I waited for a week, but saw no refund.

After a few more weeks of exchanging emails, and hearing promise after promise and I never received any refund.

My advice: RENT AT YOUR OWN RISK !!!!!

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this location for a month and, from the time of our arrival to our departure,we were royally looked after by Paulina and her father Lalo. The apartment was very well located-- a25 minute walk to Plaza Sotomayor or a 5 minute bus ride (and there was a bus for 300 pesos every 30 seconds.
The views from the apartment were stunning and will forever live in our memories. In addition, the apt. was very well-appointed and lacked nothing. The best restaurants we found were La Conception and Espiritu Santo--excellent food and reasonable prices.
Thanks again Paulina and, especially, Lalo for all you did.

Impressive views

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I, and a friend of ours, stayed at Paulina's flat in October, 2013. The views of the bay at this height (15th floor) are stunning. The master bedroom with ensuite is a real treat. The other two bedrooms are quite small, although they each accommodate two twin beds. We found the doormen to be extremely helpful and friendly. It is very easy to flag down a bus to go to town. We would recommend the restaurants Pasta E Vino at 352 Calle Templeman and also La Concepcion at Papudo 541 Concepcion (both are not within walking distance). The kitchen is well-appointed and you will enjoy having breakfast at the dining table with the views of the bay through the floor to ceiling windows.

Great views, comfortable apartment in an amazing city.

  • 4 of 5
Very nice apartment with great views of the harbour; the gentlemen working the front desk etc. were extremely friendly and happy to help. Location was a little bit out of the way but a good, brisk walk got you to the downtown core in 10/15 minutes (also, buses go by the door every minute or so). Overall, had a great time in Valparaiso and would stay in this apartment again and recommend to friends.

Luxury living with splendid OCEAN VIEWS!!

  • 5 of 5
There is a lot to like about this condo . . .

(1) OCEAN VIEWS - from the moment you walk in until the time you leave you will be enamored by the splendid ocean views. This is the most strategically placed unit in the building with the prime corner location with the best orientation. The unit is well designed to emphasize the ocean view with nothing but glass on the ocean side. The bedroom and living room windows slide wide open as did two full size patio doors on the side wall. The corner outdoor terrace was great for morning tea and afternoon wine and cheese or anytime during the day. Located on the 15th floor of a 30 floor highrise, you will be privledged with a memorable view. Frankly, the pictures on the www rental ad do not serve the view the justice it deserves. Although Valpo is a lovely town, many people, including ourselves, would be content to enjoy a good part of day with a glass of wine and a good book enjoying the view.

(2) Stylish condo - this is a stylish and well appointed condo, having most all the luxuries and comforts of home. Attractive furniture, comfortable beds and a well furnished kitchen, etc helped make our stay most enjoyable. Others wrote about the white master bedroom blinds that did not filter the sun . . . we choose to sleep with the blinds wide open to view a full moon rising and an early morning sun to wake up too. The 2 smaller bedrooms with 2x twin beds are sufficent for kids or guests (ie. anyone not paying the bill).

The building is newer construction, with a 24/7 manned security desk that could be confused for a high rise in any major US or world city.

(3) Convenient - The building is located at the "end" of the main drag and while not centrally located we found it to be quite convient. A 10 minute ocean side walk to the port area gets you started with a city tour or wave your hand and catch a bus at the front door for a 50 cent ride up / down the main drag to any location in town. Take advantage of an early morning wake up and walk away from town on the sidewalk path admiring the ocean view for a lovely 1 hour roundtrip walk.

(4) Service - the Santiago native and US based owner was responsive and helpful with all our questions and emails. Local service and welcome was provided by her Dad, a most pleasant man with good English and a helpful dispostion. When we indicated that we left our Ipad in the US, he left behind his netbook for our use!
