About Michelle

Michelle is an avid gardener, and lover of food and wine. I found my paradise in Chile, where there are the freshest organic vegetables, outstanding wines and some of the most delicious olive oil that I have ever tasted. And what could be better than being able to cultivate many of these riches on my own property.

Michelle purchased this villa in 2009

Why Michelle chose Santiago

The Mediterranean climate is unbeatable. At the Casa Ishi Villa we are minutes away from some the best wineries in the world. A half hour from the Andes mountains, where there is a wide range of outdoor activity to suit your needs. And less than an hour from the center of Santiago and the international airport. It is hard to find a more convenient location.

What makes this villa unique

The Casa Ishi Villa is a garden lovers dream. It is a rare opportunity to own a property with mature fruit trees of every species imaginable, and century old palm trees. The perennial and succulent gardens add a beautiful dimension to what is a truly magical environment. Come and enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are sitting under the orange tree in at least 20c!! We enjoyed the

delicious bottle of Carmenere waiting for us while playing Yatzy and

fireing the stove in the evening. Thank you soooo much!!!

Claudio's dogs have been guarding us all the time and have become our very

best friends!!

We slept very well, all of us and are now looking forward to a nice day in

this lovely weather!!

Very best and warm greetings from the four norwegians enjoying Casa Ishi!!

Great stay at this wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed with our adult children at the beautiful villa in April. It is just as pictured on the website, and so relaxing to sit in the gardens or out on the deck. The owner, Michelle, is great to work with and provided much needed advice on how best to get around and about things to see and do in the area. She made us feel at home and relaxed about using the yard, exploring the grounds, etc. She recommended drivers for our excursions and they were the best (Mauricio and his brother, Marco); they were both very professional, knowledgeable, flexible and friendly. Maria cooked her chicken dinner for us one night, which was fantastic. We like to cook and try new cuisines, and we were all very impressed by the delicious meal. It was nice having Maria nearby, as she was unobtrusive, yet always accessible if we had a question or needed anything. Between Michelle, Maria, and our drivers/tour guides, we felt like our every desire was taken care of during our time in Chile. We had the best stay there!!!

Relaxing villa

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the main guest house for six days. We did day trips from there to explore the local area. The kitchen was set up with everything we needed to make meals when we wanted to. Restaurants 7 km away as is Winery Concha Y Toro. Other wineries within short driving distances.

The grounds were beautiful with areas around the yard to sit and enjoy the weather. There were patios off the dining room to look out over the river.

Michelle was a great help to us in giving us ideas on what to see and where to eat. Claudio the caretaker was helpful. We enjoyed our stay and were sad to leave.

A slice of heaven in the foothills outside Santiago

  • 5 of 5

Four of us (two couples) traveled to this wonderful villa to get a few days of rest, relaxation, hikes and wine tours and the villa was the PERFECT place for all of the above. We stayed for five nights and wish we could have stayed longer!

The property is about about four acres including the VRBO villa, owner's house and ground keeper's house. The buildings are spaced apart so you will have a lots of privacy and quiet. We were fortunate that the owners were in town during our stay and they were gracious hosts. They welcomed us to their home for a glass of wine and ensured that we had good suggestions for restaurants and activities each day.

The pictures posted in the VRBO profile do not do the property justice. Both the grounds and the villa are immaculate. We had a great time drinking wine and cooking in the well-stocked kitchen. We spent many hours relaxing and reading on the private terrace and chillier evenings inside listening to music on the iphone docking station that is provided.

The owners highlighted the fact that Chile has a zero drinking and driving policy and so they provided us with the contact details of a driver they like to use. The driver is well worth the investment as he delivered us to and from the airport, took us to an amazing array of wineries and restaurants (all of which he booked for us) as well as a fantastic day trip to Valparaiso.

I have traveled every continent in the world and can say that I have hardly felt so comfortable or relaxed away from home. Thanks to the owners of the villa for maintaining such an incredible and special place!!

A beautiful and relaxing place to escape the city

  • 5 of 5

I arrived february 6 for two nights with my family (8 adults and 2 babies). From the moment I arrived until I left the experience was perfect. My room was clean and lovely, it is so peaceful there. The river sound is the perfect melody for relax. The beds are so comfortable. The main guesthouse is spacious and beautifully decorated, have a great kitchen, dining and living rooms. Casa Ishi have majestic gardens, we enjoyed nice moments in their lovely terraces under the trees. The location is great, 30-40 minutes from Santiago downtown and near to the natural sanctuary of the Cajon del Maipo. Michele and her husband are very friendly and welcoming. I can only say that this is a perfect place to disconnect from the city and relax.

A beautiful and meticulously maintained property.

  • 5 of 5

More than two gorgeous acres of lawn, trees and flowers with very comfortable accommodations. The owners were present during our 6 day stay and were generous and helpful. My highest recommendation for quiet, beauty, and comfort.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Chile for a quick getaway to celebrate two birthdays. The plan was to get some time in the wine country and a bit hiking in the Andes. This villa was perfect for both.

The owner, caretaker and private chef could not have been nicer, and they made everything easy on their guests.

The property is as beautiful as the pictures, and the guest villa works well for two or three couples.

If you are interested in visiting vineyards, those near Pirque are great and there is no need to travel very far. the William Fevre Winery was our favorite and is an easy twenty minute drive. The restaurants at Santa Rita and Concha Y Toro also looked very nice.

We had a birthday dinner prepared in the house and Marco made an excellent four course meal with wine paired for each course. We dined on the deck with the main course served inside.

Travel to the Bellavista area in Santiago was about 45 minutes, and we had Marco drive us in for a great meal on a busy Saturday night. If you plan on drinking any wine out at any restaurants bear in mind the zero tolerance law in Chile. We saw several police checkpoints making random stops of cars throughout our stay.

We were glad to have a driver.

The hiking beyond San Jose de Maipo was about an hour away and is a great way to see the glaciers and some of the giant peaks beyond Santiago.

If you want to get away from tourists and relax, this is the place.

Santiago (SCL)

Enjoy the best that Chile has to offer – food, wine, outdoor activities and spectacular weather, while relaxing in the countryside in a private villa. And you are only 30 miles from the center of Santiago. Casa Ishi is located in San Juan de Pirque, a semi-rural area in the renowned Maipo Valley. This is the most celebrated appellation in Chile, home to some of the oldest vineyards in South America. Nearby wineries include Concha y Toro, Almaviva, Haras de Pirque, Cousiño Macul, Aquitania, De Martino and Santa Rita, where you can have tours, tastings and dine on fine cuisine.

Casa Ishi is only 10 minutes from the center of Pirque there you can shop in our brand new super market, eat in local restaurants and cafes, gas up your car, access the ATM, or visit the distinguished Concha Y Toro Winery located right in the middle of Pirque. For outdoor enthusiasts, we are on the road to the San Francisco glacier and access to the Andes. This is a great alternative to staying in Santiago, and we are an easy 50-minute drive from the Santiago airport!
