Great funky (in the best sense) refurbished barn just on the edge of downtown Puerto Varas. I’m pretty self-sufficient but Vicki made me feel very comfortable and welcome and even included me in a fun birthday celebration on my last night there. My room was huge and comfortable with the best shower I had on my trip around Chile! It’s a great place independent coming and going if that’s your thing or there’s a wonderful common room and kitchen for mingling with other travelers.Steven December. 2015
I truly enjoyed spending time with Vicki, her friends, and the other tenants during my week in Puerta Varas. Before my arrival, she noticed that I was from the US, and kindly invited me to join her and her local friends (Chileans and Americans) for a huge Thanksgiving holiday feast that she hosted in the common area. She is a very gracious hostess, and I am lucky to have found such an interesting group of people with whom to make friends, take walks, tell stories, and share some laughs. She also arranged my transportation to/from the airport, which went very smoothly both ways. The bedroom and private bath was very spacious, clean and comfortable. The huge old barn has been tastefully renovated into several guest rooms upstairs (including the kitchen and common area) and business space downstairs, with tall ceilings and original wood beams and flooring throughout. I will definitely stay here when I visit the area again.Richard November 2016
Oh my goodness this place is incredible! And Vicki is such a wonderful host, I couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. The barn is just beautiful, and the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need to cook up a good meal, and the people are just lovely, and made me feel right at home. Vicki has created a magical environment, and my only complaint is that I couldn’t stay longer.Carissa December 2016
Vicky ofrece un lugar distinto, cálido y entretenido. el lugar queda ubicado en un buen sector de puerto varas, a 10 minutos del centro caminando. El galpón donde esta la casa es rústico con elegancia. Te sientes realmente en el sur del Mundo. Vicki es un tremenda anfitriona, entretenida, divertida, amable y realmente muy preocupada de sus airbnb guest. Además, tiene una cocina espectacular, donde todos los días te sorprende con una propuesta nueva de desayuno. Las piezas son muy buenas, con excelente calidad en sus camas, plumones, y accesorios. Espero volver lo antes posible!NN
The home we wished we had at home!! This place is reminiscent of a rustic spacious farm life with the advantage of being close to town and having all the amenities of modern living. My wife and I stayed here for about 10 days last summer and enjoyed being able to use a kitchen that was fit for a family of 10:). It’s located walking distance from downtown but feels very private. We traveled down to southern Chile for the usual outdoor activities and decided to get something more than just a hotel room. When we asked around town we were told by a couple people that Vicki was the person to talk to if we wanted a different lodging experience. All i can say is that that’s exactly what we got. Vicki pretty much made our life easy and has given this place a personal touch around every corner and every room. If you are looking for space, privacy, a space to host (did I mention awesome kitchen) convenience and an owner that will give you the ins and outs of the region, this is the place. Price is a bit on the high side but well worth it if you really take advantage of the barn.NN
