Dear B6499BIchrisa Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about your stay here with us in Basecamp. I'm very pleased that you enjoyed your cabin and our location. It's so handy being walking distance from the good restaurants in the village, and especially when we have a large snow fall it means getting back onto the main...

There are lots of places available to rent if you want to get to the snow but it's tough to find one that's really warm, where the whole cabin stays warm through the night so that you don't even wake up cold in the morning - that's what you'll get here. It's close to all you need - restaurants, minimarket...

OK, I'm going to be fully honest and say that I have not stayed at Basecamp Cabanas. That said, I wanted to, but they just didn't have availability for my family and me the week we wanted to stay. Nevertheless, Corinne called around and looked for other options for us, she answered all of my annoying emails, and she willingly...

We had a great week at Basecamp in Las Trancas, close to bike trails, mountain views, as well as all the amenities of mini-market, restaurants on the main road BUT away from the main road! It was such a pleasure to see genuine efforts made by the owners to conserve water and energy, as well as the natural environment. Loved...

My husband I went to Basecamp for a weekend trip a few weekends ago (winter). We weren´t really sure about what activities were availlable, how to get there, or the prices of activities, but Corinne gave us advice about everything! Corinne recommended us the best places to rent skis, to go snowmobiling, places to eat, etc. If you are looking...

Dear Cjurg Thank you very much for leaving your review of Basecamp, I am so glad you enjoyed your stay (and hike) with us! The village can get very busy on weekends and during mid/high season, and whilst we're walking distance from various restaurants and cafe's etc, Basecamp manages to retain an air of calm.

We had a great 2 night stay at Basecamp cabins in February. The cabins are very nice and well equipped. The shower was great! The location is perfect as they are just back off the main road but still walking distance to mini-markets and restaurants. We went on a nice hike with owner Corinne and then enjoyed a BBQ outside...

We had a really nice stay in these cabañas, thanks to Corinne´s great recommendations and the amazing natural environment surrounding them. We went to stay here for a weekend, together with my in-laws. Our journey to the cabañas itself was already brightened up by Corinne´s recommendations for a lovely café (with very good coffee) on the road towards Las Trancas....

Had a lovely stay in these brand new cabanas. The wood gives them a rustic feel, but they have all the modern amenities and one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in! They are situated in a beautiful forest setting so are a nice 'getaway' but are still just a short walk to the main road and restaurants,...
