Overview

Chile Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 baths, Sleeps 6, Magnificent Gardens

The Casa Ishi villa welcomes guests, on our expansive 2.5-acre, 10,000 square meter property, with a spectacular super dry Mediterranean climate. Relax in the southern hemisphere, where you can experience superb weather from October through April.

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, 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!

The two-story guest villa provides an expansive living room, dining room and kitchen, wood beamed ceilings, and sliding glass doors opening onto a fabulous private terrace. Enjoy a bottle of wine watching the sunset from your terrace. The 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are located on the floor below, with another private terrace, trellised with a grape arbor. The bedrooms are furnished with top quality queen beds and fine linens. A newly renovated bathroom, features a skylight in the shower.

Casa Ishi, is an oasis. It’s the perfect choice for a family vacation, or for close friends to spend quality time together in your own private house. Century old palm trees lace our majestic gardens, along with gorgeous perennial flowering plants. Wander through our bountiful property, where you can pick fruit from our apricot, avocado, fig, lemon, orange, plum, walnut trees and grape arbors. Have a private chef prepare scrumptious meals in our mud oven, stone barbecue or in your fully equipped kitchen, or dine in colorful local restaurants.

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 Chile

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!!

Beautiful home and gardens

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent several days at Casa Ishi before a hiking trip to Patagonia. Casa Ishi is a wonderful contrast to Patagonia: calm and peaceful and sunny, a great place to relax before a more arduous trek. The grounds are spectacular with lush, beautiful gardens. Delicious fresh fruit grows on the property and there​'​s even a traditional Chilean mud oven for cooking pizza, empanadas, etc and a huge stone barbecue, both located in a nice shady spot under a big old walnut tree. Our rooms were perfectly appointed and lovely. ​The owners ​are attentive hosts who know how to make their guests comfortable and happy.

Country retreat with city visit

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently spent a few days at Casa Ishi. What we most enjoyed was the opportunity to do both country and city at the same time. One particular day we arranged for a car to take us in to Santiago ( a little under an hour) where we visited the wonderful Museo del Arte Precolumbina and the quite moving Museo de la Memoria. After a delicious lunch at a restaurant recommended by the owners of Casa Ishi, we spent the afternoon at La Chascona, Pablo Neruda's home in Santiago - a fascinating place. We were picked up by the driver and delivered back to the beautiful grounds of Casa Ishi where we could pick a few grapes from the arbor and relax on our deck with a view of the valley below us. A perfect day.

Loved Our Special Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Ishi was the highlight of our weeklong trip to Chile. The lush environment with mature trees and abundant flowers was a warm welcome after a day of sightseeing in Santiago - the property is so nice we almost didn't want to leave for our tours everyday. Also, the large terrace off the kitchen was the perfect spot for morning coffee, but was especially nice in the evening with a glass of wine while watching the sun set, so beautiful. We had great weather on our visit which the locals told us was generally the rule for that area, warm and sunny during the day but cool at night (perfect sleeping temp). Overall a great home-base for exploring Santiago and Chile - total privacy and with a view, loved it!

Luxurious Home on Lush Estate w/many day trips

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Ishi with our four adult children between Christmas and New Year’s. The grounds were lush and beautifully tended, and the location perfect for a variety of day trips: rafting, hiking, and wine tours. The two houses provided plenty of room for the six of us, and the owners were extremely helpful both before and during our trip. The driver/chef they recommended has extensive knowledge of Chilean history and culture, is a fantastic chef using local ingredients, and a kind and generous guide.

Amazing region of Chile - Beautiful property and gracious owners.

  • 5 of 5

The property exceeded expectations. The grounds were very lush, well maintained, secure and secluded. We went on a guided bike tour of a local winery which included, tastings, breakfast and lunch at a restaurant specializing in local dishes. Patio was private, bathed in sun and had great views. Only wish we could have been there more then three days!

Owners were wonderful, generous and helpful. I would recommend this property to anyone.

Great visit!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! Michelle thought of everything.

The villa was clean, spacious, and the kitchen had everything we needed for cooking. We loved using the wood stove and they provided plenty of firewood.

I do recommend using Michelle's carefully written directions. We used google maps but she wisely added to look for the mile marker to see the gate more easily. That really helped.

The flowers were just starting to pop out and the grounds were gorgeous!

Michelle and her husband were very gracious!
