best friends!!

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

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.

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!

Absolutely beautiful house and gardens

  • 5 of 5
Lovely property set in a lovely location with beautiful gardens. The location is fantastic, just a short drive away from the Concha y Toro vineyards and about 40 minutes from airport. Great location for touring the vineyards or the centre of Santiago. There are a number of restaurants nearby and lunch at the Concha y Toro vineyard was wonderful and reasonably priced too. The booking was very straightforward and the owner Michelle made sure everything was organised perfectly for our stay. The caretaker and his wife were very helpful. We really enjoyed our stay in the house and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone not wanting to stay in a hotel, this is much much better.
Thanks Michelle

Fabulous Place

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful spot; we loved every minute of our visit!! Everything was better than we hoped for!! The owners greeted us when we arrived, showed us around and were so informative. There was a yummy bottle of local Chilean wine awing for us for our first dinner!! The house was beautifully appointed and very comfortable. We were thrilled with the kitchen as we have rented other places that were the bare minimum. It was also sooo nice not to have to pack towels & sheets. The beds were made and the towels set out for us. The bathrooms had extra supplies if needed. We had Maria's chicken one night and recommend it highly!! The food store was an easy drive and well stocked. We sat out both nights after dinner and enjoyed the beautiful night sky!! We were very sad to leave on Sunday and since it is such an easy drive from Santiago, hope to return on our next visit!!

A "staycation" While Away

A "staycation" While Away
  • 5 of 5
Seldom does one find such a place as Casa Ishi. From the moment of our arrival on a Monday afternoon until we left on Saturday evening, we felt as if we had uprooted our neighborhood back in Texas and transplanted it to Pirque, Chile. We were fortunate that the owners of the property were on premises the entire time we were there and really made us feel at home. We had asked for an arrival meal to be prepared, to ease our transition into the week, after flying all night from DFW. Because the caretakers wife was on another job site that day, she had prepped our meal the evening before and Michelle, the owner, graciously completed the preparation and invited us to have lunch with her and her husband - at their house! What an introduction! Over the course of the week, we were introduced to friends and neighbors, developed an evening cocktail/wine ritual and even had them to our house to share a dinner one night and had a progressive dinner between their house and ours, another night. We were recommended to a guide/chef, Marco, by the owners, who picked us up one morning, gave us a fantastic highlights tour of Santiago, took us the huge produce market and to the fresh fish market where we purchased items for that nights dinner. We then were taken to lunch and a quick little tour of Barrio Italia and back home to Casa Ishi, where we assisted Marco in preparation of our dinner and enjoyed a great evening and wonderful food and fellowship. We only left the property two other times - both of those days were to take a wine excursion that we had planned on our own. Each day, we actually shortened our normal touring time, because we couldn't wait to get back "home". Because we like to cook and hang out at home, this place was perfect for us. It's what we do at home in Texas, with our friends and neighbors. Are there lots of things to do off-site, while staying at Casa Ishi - absolutely! Did we do a lot of them? Absolutely not! Why? Because it was just that relaxing and pleasant. The pictures on the site, really don't convey the atmosphere of the place.
A couple of tips - Unless you want to depend on a daily driver, you absolutely need a car. The convenience of knowing that you could go anywhere at anytime is great.
- Perez Cruz Winery, an absolute must
- Matetic Winery in San Antonio Valley, also a must, even if just for lunch.
- A day trip into Santiago with a guide is well worth the time and expense
- Mud oven pizza - need I say more?

A special villa that pampers all of your senses.

  • 5 of 5
Casa Ishi, a charming guest house, sits in a gorgeous, historical property. Casa Ishi offered us a very relaxing stay during our visits to Santiago and wineries. If you are like me who have a deep interest in food, including local Chilean cuisine, staying Casa Ishi is a must. The property has many fruits trees in the garden. We foraged any fruits which are at the hight of their ripeness - oranges, red and purple plums, mini avocado, lemon, grapes. The fruits grown under the strong sun of Chile suprised us with their extremely concentrated, powerful and amazing sweet flavor. The property is looked after by the caretaker. The wife of the caretaker cooks delicious meals - simple and very flavorful. Many of the dishes are cooked in the mud oven which was crafted by her husband. Pastel de choclo, pork with pineapple, Chilean pizza...are some of must dishes to try. Do not forget to enjoy her dishes with local wine!

A wonderful place and a base for so much more

  • 5 of 5
Casa Ishi as the photos show is a wonderful facility fully equipped with every amenity for a stress-free, carefree stay. But it is what is not shown in the pictures that makes the place so special. Every morning before breakfast just outside our door we could pick. plums (2 varieties!), oranges, lemons, avocados, grapes, figs, peaches, nectarines and more. And the owners recommended an excellent driver who took us to sites in the city, nearby villages, one specializing in pottery (we bought a bunch) and many local wineries (great tours and tastings). Maria, the on-site caretaker's wife and an excellent cook, at our request prepared several delicious dinners for us using an outdoor wood-fired mud oven. Even with rush hour traffic we could visit and enjoy excellent restaurants in Santiago. Don't forget the friendly dogs, Kuro (sorry, no photo) and the frisky puppies Lucky and Star. As a quiet, serene place to stay and as a base for exploration of Santiago and the nearby wine-producing valleys Casa Ishi can't be beaten.

Lovely country getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We loved Casa Ishi and our hosts! The house was beautiful inside and out. The bedrooms were lovely and the kitchen and other living areas were beautifully decorated, comfortable, and spacious. The view from the terrace area is breathtaking, especially over a bottle of wine at sunset. We spent our days wandering the property, picking plums, oranges, lemons, avocados, and unbelievably delicious figs. We drove to a vineyard one day (there are plenty close by to choose from) and ate at La Calma de Rita which we recommend. This was the perfect way to get away from the traffic and noise of Santiago without driving too far. Michelle was such a gracious host - even going so far as to purchase a new outdoor table for our large group. Our group (made up of ages 1 to 70) had a wonderful time and hope to be back!

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. This is a great alternative to staying in Santiago, and we are an easy 50-minute drive from the Santiago airport!
