A luxury mansion in the heart of Mendoza

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 6 wonderful nights in a group of 7 in Bliss Cottage. A beautiful and spacious home in prime downtown Mendoza with all amenities as described including the pincho at the end of the garden where we whipped up a couple of fabulous asados - Argentinian BBQ! The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in - huge and thoughtfully designed and fully equipped.

John is a kindly gentlemen who responded to all our needs and queries in a considerate, comprehensive and speedy way. Thank you for the great memories John & Graciela!

Great Location--beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is in a great location in Mendoza. It's very easy to walk to restaurants, bars and grocery stores. The house is built on several levels and has a lot of room. There are bathrooms everywhere!

My area of the house was clean but the couple staying in one of the master bedrooms thought it could have been cleaner. Overall I would recommend this house. The owner was very easy to work with. Mendoza is a great area to visit.

Owner's Response: Hi Christine! Many thanks for your excellent review of our property. Graciela and I are delighted that you had a great​ time in the house and in Mendoza generally. We always try to ensure that the house is in perfect condition for our visitors and are concerned that your companion found one of the rooms less that totally satisfactory. I would appreciate it if you could let me know which room you refer to and provide me with more information about the nature of the problem so we can do as much as we can to ensure that there is no recurrence. Thanks again. John Teape

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our stay in Mendoza. We had six adults and the house was still huge, with more than enough space for everyone. The yard and pool were amazing. The kitchen was large and a great place for us to cook a few nights. The location was very convenient for exploring Mendoza and close to food, drink and shops. I would definitely recommend!

Prime property and location

  • 5 of 5

We could not be happier with our decision to stay at this beautiful property. The house is very spacious and comfortable, complete with a beautiful yard, pool and pool house. The owners were very welcoming and extremely attentive to our needs. The property was clean, well kept and very secure. The location is perfect! Very near to the parks, restaurants and shopping. We felt like we had the best of all worlds during our stay and would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!

This is a FANTASTIC house

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of six (three couples) and we found this property to be the perfect "base of operations" for a visit to Mendoza city and the surrounding wine growing region. The owner, John, and his partner Graciela, were excellent hosts. They met us on arrival and saw us off to our next phase of our trip. They helped us find local (walking distance) restaurants, groceries, and places of interest. They also connected us with people who provided other activities (wine country excursions, an Argentinian cooking class, and a bike tour to Chacras de Coria).

The property itself is amazing. It looks small when you arrive, but the layout is quite spacious. We were able to have our own "private space" and also enjoy community meals and gatherings at the main table or in the quincho at the back of the property.

There is no deception in the pictures on the listing. In fact, the property is larger than it looks in the pictures. This is a spacious, elegant, well-kept property. Every driver or tour operator who picked us up at the property commented "you have a very nice house."

Within walking distance are several of the best restaurants in Mendoza, including Azafran, Cordillera, and a host of great places on Villanueva Aristides. There are also nearby wine shops (GoBar) and stores and butcher shops to buy your own supplies to cook in the house or on the excellent parrillada in the quincho.

Plaza Independencia and all of the surrounding plazas (de Chile, de Italia, San Martin, and de España) are an easy walk as well.

While there, we enjoyed dinner at Azafran (highly recommended), a Taninas Wine Tasting (located next to Ampora Wine Tours), a cooking class at Cordillera Fuegos y Vinos (with free-flowing wine and a fantastic dinner), and a wine tour to the Uco Valley arranged by John's friends. We also had a day on our own where we hiked up Cerro Arco, and another day where we just shopped in downtown Mendoza and then went to local stores to buy supplies for our own asado, which we prepared ourselves in the parrillada.

Overall, we all would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this property if you are traveling to the Mendoza area. Of all the venues we visited in South America, this property (and our hosts) made things very easy for us. If you are looking for an elegant, well-priced, stress-free stay in Mendoza, this is the FIRST place you should look.

The only down-side to the property is there is only one set of keys, so it was a little difficult to split up.

Owner's Response: Were are delighted with Bill's fulsome praise and to know that he and his fellow travellers enjoyed their stay so much! His recounting of their stay in Mendoza will be very helpful for future visitors. Bill's final comment is well-taken. We have simplified the entry/exit procedure and several sets of keys are now available to guests.

Car: recommended

Our beautiful house is located in the upmarket Quinta Seccion of Mendoza. It is less than 8 blocks from Independencia Square and the adjacent commercial centre and pedestrian area, yet set in a quiet, tree-lined street. Restaurants, bars, cafes, shopping, international hotels and all amenities are very close at hand, as is the impressive San Martin Park. Excursions to the mountains, golf, horseriding and winery tours can be easily arranged while enjoying all the facilities and convenience of a modern, vibrant city. Local shops sell a wide range of high quality produce, including a huge selection of excellent wines from Mendoza and San Juan provinces.

The house itself extends to some 700 square metres on a number of levels. With 5 guest bedrooms it can accommodate 12 people in comfort. There is a total of 6 bathrooms in the house, a large well-equipped kitchen, breakast room, TV/games/sitting room, formal dining room and a huge living room with a wonderful grand piano. Along with various other rooms and facilities, an office is provided with a PC, printer and broadband internet access, which extends throughout the house. The house is centrally heated and air-conditioned throughout, with the temperature in each room individually controlled.

At the front of the house is a secure garage that can accommodate up to 4 cars, and a pleasant garden leading to the entrance. The long shaded gallery at the rear of the house leads to the sun-drenched garden and swimming pool where guests can relax in seclusion. Beyond the garden is a large enclosed quincho with a barbecue and toilet/changing facilities.

This just a brief description of this impressive property, which has to be experienced to be fully appreciated.
