We had the sheer dumb-luck of visiting on Neruda's 111th birthday, on July 12th. It was a rainy day with gray clouds and tough winds which had cut the electricity for the area; yet it made the visit all the better, as if the landscape was honoring the poet. Neruda's home is as much a landscape of his imagination as... More

This is the most beautiful of Neruda's three houses, and the most isolated. In almost every room there is a view out to the Pacific as its waves crash on the rocks. The rooms are also full of the objects he loved, art, bar kitsch, shells, embalmed beetles. Yet as his Ode to a Bicycle observed, the whirring, translucent bicycle,... More

Wow! I didn't know much about Neruda before my visit but I loved it. I was there for about an hour and a half because the house is fairly small. It is filled with crazy collections of ship masts, paintings, sculptures, insects, and much more. All the rooms have beautiful views of the sea and fun architecture. Try to go... More

The visit was very interesting. It is done with audio guide and they offer several languages. It is right by the beach and looks like a boat. A must see even if you are not a big fan of Pablo Neruda

This was Pablo Neruda's preferred house sitting right at the Pacific coast. It is really impressive and well worth the detour to get to. Do get the audio tour - it is very well done and tells you everything you want to know. All in all it takes about 1h to cover the whole place. The house is filled with... More

What an amazing adventure. We drove from Valparaiso and with minimal help from any technology (google or Apple maps are almost useless) we found ourselves at this lovely place in about an hour and 45 min. We took the highway there and backroads back, as long as you are up for a very curvy road the views are AMAZING I... More

Very good audio presentation. Useful to understand poet better. Useful to soak atmosphere. Not suitable for disable as multiple levels.

So fascinating to walk through a home once occupied by Neruda, the award winning Chilean poet and novelist. Really enjoyed the old pictures and personal memorabilia.

Interesting house and history. Narrow stairs, smallish rooms, breathtaking views. We had difficulty following the taped narrative; perhaps our fault and not theirs, but took away time from fully appreciating the facility. Well cared for, good place for history buffs to visit.
