Carmen and Marco are excellent hosts and do whatever they can to make one's stay perfect.
The rooms are comfortable and the food excellent. The honey from their own bees is delicious, especially spread on their freshly baked bread, and Marco's home smoked salmon is the best we have eaten. Carmen's Pisco Sours in the hot tub overlooking the bay, watching the hummingbirds flit from flower to flower and spotting dolphins is a treat.The views from the house are wonderful and it feels as if one is staying at a friend's home. My husband fished with Marco, I paddled around in a kayak and walked along the beach. We both drove around and explored the area. A car is good to have if you want to explore on your own as it is in a remote area which is part of the attraction.
If you want to see the north of Chiloe Island then this is a little far away for day trips so we stayed here 3 nights then 2 nights near Ancud in the north.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tucked away on a hidden bay on what is already a fairly untrodden part of Chile, Puerto Nativo is definitely a destination with a difference. Carmen and Marco Ancaras chose this spot on the island of Chiloe in northern Patagonia especially to set up their dream home, and it isn’t difficult to see why. Overlooking one of the Estero Paildad - or ‘interior sea’ - bays, with a beach at the bottom of the garden and rolling green hills behind, they have built a beautiful, open-plan wooden house, very simply but tastefully furnished, that offers visitors a real home-from-home experience. You will arrive as guests, and almost certainly leave as friends; and probably not just with Marco and Carmen. ... more less
