Additional Rate and Availability Information
$125 Cleaning fee paid in Chilean pesos to the caretakers on arriving.
We also have 2 cabañas on the same property for up to 5 guests each.
Payment by PayPal or credit card.
NO pets. NO smoking indoors or outdoors. WiFi cost depends on usage, approximately 10,000 pesos per 3 days at average 1GB usage per day. More usage means more cost. We don't profit, we just charge you for what you will likely need for a given amount of time. Wifi reception is variable depending on the weather and number of users in Pucon at the time. Good weather means better reception, but more people online, especially in January and February, the Chilean summer. Happy surfing, but big downloads of movies and data will cost you, and make you run out of GBs quickly. Consider hiking, going to the beach, climbing the volcano, hotsprings, national parks, the Villarrica Cultural Center, and restaurants with free Wifi instead. (Cassis, Cafe de la P, Ecole, Trawen, or Wed Wed.) Enjoy your stay.

About the neighbourhood
Set high on a hill, in a rural area 5 km from downtown Pucon, with sweeping view of Lake Villarrica end to end, the entire Villarrica Volcano, and surrounding mountains, pasture land and forests. We have a rooftop deck with Vita-spa hot tub. Ample parking is available. We suggest a four wheel drive or high clearance car, but guests have done ok with front wheel drive. Nearest houses are 200 yards or more away. We are 12 km from the Villarrica National Park, where there is hiking, the Volcanic Caves, and skiing with chair lifts in the Chilean winter. Access to Pucon is by gravel and paved roads. Pucon has more than 40 restaurants, a Casino, a marina, and a number of lakeside beaches. Fly fishing, salmon fishing, swimming, hiking, waterfalls and many hot springs are within a 30-45 minute dr... more

How to get there
Airport: Temuco: 109.0 km
We are in the countryside 4 km from Pucon. You will receive full directions for arriving here after you book. We suggest renting a 4WD or high clearance car that has enough power to go up hills easily. You may rent a car in Pucon, but we recommend renting at the Santiago airport if you are driving from there, or from the Temuco airport. It's about 9 hours (800 km) from Santiago by car, and about an hour and a half (110 km ) from Temuco airport. Comfortable overnight buses are available from Santiago to Pucon.

Nearest Beach: 4.8 km.
