“They weren't kidding about the view!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed at Cynthia's house for a week in October, 2013 and loved every minute of it.

We were looking for place where we could lounge around in hammocks reading and having a nice glass of wine, so this place was idyllic. The house itself is gorgeous and spacious – the views from the walk-out verandas off the bedrooms are stunning. We'd been staying in some local-style places on our travels so it was really nice to spend some time at place with good hot showers and comfortable beds.

The caretakers were friendly Canadians. Though onsite in their cottage, they made themselves and their dogs scarce, but were around when we needed. They were very helpful at giving us some info about the lake and their Spanish helped as they arranged some boats for us to go to San Pedro and a few other places.

The place is pretty isolated with its own dock, but that's exactly what we were looking for.

Note about noise – although across the bay from Santiago, we heard some music coming from the town in the evenings on the weekend. I guess the sound carries easily across the lake. But it was over by about 10pm so it didn't keep us up at night and we actually kind of liked listening to local music while sitting on the front porch in the evenings.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Ideal for a few days peace and tranquillity, this charming retreat is perfect as a getaway from the busy hustle and bustle of every day life, and the busy tourist trail.
Convenient enough for local amenities but secluded enough for complete privacy.
Host couple were helpful, knowledgeable and friendly, always available yet unobtrusive.
