We arrived more than an hour late at the Punta Arenas airport well past midnight. Pamela was waiting for us at the airport holding a sign with our name and waving cheerfully. This cheerful enthusiasm late in the evening set the tone for our stay. Pamela and Luis are the most conscientious hosts I have ever stayed with and were always cheerful. The breakfast was excellent, plentiful and served with a smile. Furthermore it came with real coffee! Something I cannot say about any other B&B we stayed at in Chile.
Luis helped us figure out what to do in town and gave us practical time and money saving tips about visiting Torres Del Paine found in no guidebook and it showed that he genuinely cared about how much we enjoyed our time in Patagonia. Furthermore he requested that if we run into any trouble on our trip that we call him and he would help us sort it out. This really made us feel secure in our choice to explore Patagonia by car.
If you want a real treat have dinner at Casa Escondida. Luis makes excellent stuffed sea bass and barbecue and you are welcome to provide your own wine or he will provide you wine that compliments the food well at or near cost rather than at a large markup.
In short you could stay pretty much anywhere else in South America and not meet hosts this friendly or find accommodations as clean and pleasant as La Casa Escondida.
