We stayed here in august for 3 days and had a great time . The owner Bart was very welcoming and very helpful in his advice. Would recommend this place for anyone wanting to stay in this beautiful city.
Thank you Bart for this wonderful place to stay. Hopefully one day we can come back and stay a little longer.

This was our second stay with Bart – the first was in the penthouse, this one in a new Ecco duplex. Fantastic location, with sweeping views to the sea. Wonderful space – two terraces, bedrooms, bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a washing machine. Bart is a cordial host, immensely knowledgeable and generous with his knowledge.

We needed to reschedule our airline tickets due to Hurricane Sandy at home, and Bart spent more than an hour on his cell phone with the local airline, then came with us downtown to their office to rearrange our flight. We had a wonderful stay with Bart and wholeheartedly recommend him to all travelers.

Dear Pat and Alex,
Thanks so much for everything, it great having you back at Valparaiso Experience! How kind and thoughtful to bring a 1st Birthday gift for our babyboy Dante Max, he is delighted with his new outfit and so are we! The seafood lunch at restaurant Miramar in Quintay was spectacular, and glad you went there again on the way to the airport, although without wine because of the election day.
We look forward to hosting your friends getaway here, all services included!
Safe travels, hasta pronto

We spent two nights in the Ecco Duplex in early October 2012 and found it to be perfect for our needs! We had four adults -- the accommodations are simple and elegant -- with a very open loft-like feeling. The washer was a welcome addition for us as two members of our party are on an extended trip ... it was nice for them to be able to leave Valparaiso with clean clothes in their backpacks!
The kitchen was well stocked -- we enjoyed being able to go to the local market to pick up fresh supplies for breakfast and snacks.
The views from the unit are amazing and we appreciated the attention taken to supply maps and to offer recommendations on restaurants, sights, etc. The location is central to all that we wanted to see in Valparaiso.
Thanks for helping us enjoy our time in Valparaiso!

Great the apartment served so well for your comfort dear family. We understand how nice it is to spend quality time together for some days, before the younger generation continues their world travels. After some luxury, the 2 big backpacks are filled with freshly washed clothing, ready for new adventures, safe travels!

The sweeping views from both balconies instantly told us what a special place this is. With hardwood floors, simple furnishings, atmospheric track lighting, three downstairs bedrooms and an upstairs master suite (with it’s own bathroom) there is plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen is delightfully well stocked with great cooking equipment including razor sharp knifes, espresso maker, good pans and a working four top propane stove and oven. The caretaker was kind and available to help us whenever needed him, and the neighbors and surroundings were very hospitable. There are small markets, a bakery, several cafés, and one of Valparaiso’s finest restaurants within a few blocks, and larger facilities ten minutes away. It was very easy to find our way back as there is large church nearby, which forms a nice landmark in this city of hills.

Valparaiso is a city of living art. Not the kind you find in museums, the kind that lives and breaths in every nook and cranny. Tarnished and moth bitten indeed but like the piercing eyes behind an old man’s wrinkles it will move you and scratch your soul. All you have to do is step into it, lose your way, and see what you were meant to see. We were delighted to be able to experience it in a nice residential area with a view I will always cherish. I will never forget Valparaiso and the Valparaiso experience made it perfect.

What can I say, other than gracias! Thank you, for such a poetic and matching description of both our beloved port city and your Valparaiso Experience staying at the Queen Mary Duplex.

Nothing more gratifying when guests extend their stay while enjoying so much, as you did, and express their intention to come back soon, as you did; we look forward having you back on board at any of our apartments. Until then, safe travels & hasta pronto!

Bart and Marcela are great hosts and treat you like family. They do a lot to go above and beyond to help you feel like a local. The apartments are designed very well, and have a great view of this beautiful city. If you stay at a hotel instead you are missing out on a great opportunity.

Room Tip: give the hosts as much info about your group as you can and what you like, he will hook you up.

Great last few days of your holidays, we remember your words "if we'd found you before we would have come straight to Valparaiso Experience and stay longer"; the good thing is, we are open all year so whenever you guys like to come, you know where to go!
Safe travels, hasta siempre
