We fell in love with Chile. And we feel so comfortable and safe here! It's become our second home.. We'd be delighted to host you. Long term renters are welcome.
Judy purchased this Apartment in 2009
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The apartment is beautiful and very well appointed.
Everything you need to cook and relax. Making the reservation was simple and Judy is very responsive to any questions or concerns. After checking in with Mabel, she was also available to answer questions or help with anything. The location is quiet and in a very beautiful neighborhood. Not far from any attraction in Santiago. We had a wonderful time. The beds were pretty comfortable except for the pull-out in the third bedroom. Having 3 bathrooms was wonderful. Great time in Santiago!
Couldn’t ask for a more! Beautiful, Comfortable, Providencia location.
Great apartment! Everything top notch in a wonderful neighborhood. Loved the design, the decoration. They thought of everything! Can’t wait to stay again.
The apartment worked very well for us, 1 couple and 1 single. The concierge was very nice and helpful as was the woman who greeted us. The guide the owner recommended was exceptional and would highly recommend her. She gave us a walking tour of Santiago the first day, and it gave us confidence in the City and ourselves.
We loved the area, close to so many things, restaurants, a grocery store, and the park.
Superb and Delightful Stay in Every Way!
Recently we had a delightful experience staying at the “Las Violetas” apartment in the Providencia section of Santiago, Chile that I feel compelled to share. Firstly, Providencia is a wonderful, picturesque, tree lined neighborhood with tucked away delightful colorful café’s, interesting breakfasts nooks and is centrally located to nearby shopping and wider selections of a variety of restaurants; from delicious international and modern cuisine to vegetarian to great steaks, to local ceviche and all served with great wine and “pisco sours.” Bike riding paths as well are even located nearby.
The highlight however was returning to the apartment after a day’s activities, including vineyards, pre- Colombian and other museums, walking tours, and of course shopping – for antiques, artisanal handwork, “homeopathic” remedies and handicrafts, etc. Not only was the apartment beautifully and tastefully furnished and decorated with a master bedroom en suite and private bathroom for the other bedroom, but also included was a small, separate “guest” bathroom. The mixture of spectacular modern original paintings and artworks blended with actual pre-Colombian and native Mapuche Indian sculpture creates a wonderful feeling and environment to watch the sunset and enjoy a glass of wine and set the restful and romantic lighting. Against a backdrop of a wall of windows, uniting the inside with outside sky, sunset and rooftops was indeed special.
The kitchen was well equipped and enjoyed an openness with surrounding countertops – never isolating the cook from family and guests and is a great place for snacks, dinner and conversation. The original ceramic plates were a nice touch. There is a small office that can be converted to a bedroom, but makes a nice reading room.
I fully recommend “Las Violetas” for a wonderful getaway, a base for enjoying Santiago and its environs. It provided a comfortable and warm feeling with a touch of tasteful elegance. I recommend it highly.
Thank you so much!! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our apartment in Providencia. We have worked hard to make it a special place to call your home away from home in Santiago. Check out our other places too, Villa Puertazul (homeaway.com/150659) when you want to go to the mountains and Villa Tunquen (homeaway.com/150658)on the beach - both only 90 minutes from Santiago -
many people stay at all three! Warm regards from our VillasinChile.com
Helped out at the last minute!
We were so fortunate to make the acquaintance of Judy as she helped to resolve a difficult situation. The day before we were to arrive at another apartment, the person refunded our money and told us we could not stay there. Judy was immensely accommodating when we contacted her. She contacted her housekeeper and arranged to have the home cleaned for our arrival the following day. Upon arrival, everything was prepared and we were given assistance in understanding everything we would need to know about the apartment. A book of information pertaining to the apartment was available for our use. We couldn't have received greater care.
The location was in a safe neighborhood with a little café, called Bonaparte, only 3 blocks away. There are terrific bike lanes in the community and on Sundays until 2:00, the streets are closed to traffic in certain areas so families can bike safely. We were quite comfortable in the apartment, although we didn't choose to prepare meals there. There were so many wonderful restaurants from which to select! Although the restaurants were not in the immediate neighborhood, the taxis were plentiful. As others have mentioned, Spanish is nearly the exclusive language, so a good place to practice one's skills.
We found the internet access to be less than stellar, but it did function. We use Apple products, so there may have been some complication there. All in all, we had plenty of space for the three of us and were quite satisfied with our good fortune.
The smaller house on the property, closer to the Rio Maipo is the Casita with the wonderful sound of the river to fall asleep to. A beautiful house with all the amenities you will need for a perfect getaway. I really appreciated the 360 degree views of the spectacular Andes Mountains. The pool and the hot tub were wonderful after all the hiking. Nancy, our house keeper and cook made us feel very welcome and we bought her excellent honey to take back. The river below was spectacular and we would see raffters go by having a great time. There is horseback riding nearby as well. Can’t say enough good things about this special place. Can’t wait toe return!
