“Best B&B I've ever stayed at”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

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.

We finished our journey of 2 weeks to patagonia, the last stop Punta arenas and back to Santiago. Casa escondida was the best place to be and keep the best memories of chilenan people and hospitality. Served by its owners, Luis, Pamela and their family are loving people who are willing to make you feel at home, cozy and warm. The house is a cottage in the woods with wonderful birds around. The breakfast is included, which is perfect, and they serve dinner as an additional service i strongly recommend to have dinner, its home made, delicious and abundant the price not only for dinner but for the whole stay is worth and it has a very reasonable price. The decoration is very cozy and i will always admire the crochet courtains that grandma made.
If you are willing to have a simple,homy, cozy and lovable stay then you should stay here.

Pamela, Luis, Mauricio, and Etita are wonderful hosts in this very nice property outside of the bustling city of Punta Arenas. We loved the handmade wood furniture and the crocheted window shades. The main house is roomy and warm with a fireplace and many windows which look out onto a beautiful forested property. The rooms are spatious and the beds are comfortable. We appreciated the transport to and from town and the assistance given to get laundry done and tickets secured. The food, should you decide to eat dinner at La Casa Escondida (breakfast is included with the room) is excellent! We could not be happier with our stay here.

Absolutely loved La Casa Escondida! We stayed three nights, 1 when we first arrived in Chile and then 2 more nights 2 weeks later at the end of our trip. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, always ensuring we had what we needed when we were on the property, and then shuttling us around to the places we needed to go. They even picked us up on short notice when we returned as we were trekking and didn't buy the return bus ticket until that afternoon; they also got up and made us a 4 AM breakfast before our 5:30 AM flight home! I am pretty well traveled and love picking small local places to stay. La Casa Escondida is simply the best I have ever stayed at! Highly recommend!

We stayed three nights at the casa escondida at early december. Pamela met us arriving on bus and took us the the perfect property with lots of nature, wood and hospetality. Pamela, Luis and Mauritius help us with everything we need - drive to the city, airport, recomendations and reservations. I've never seen such hospetality. The room was really nice, and the living room was a great place to stay in when raining.

We eat at the casa at evening three time, BBQ and fish which were great.

We totaly recommend this place, don't worry about the distance from the city, you won't feel it with the great hosts. I also recommend to walk around the grounds when staying, it is amazing.

Thank you Luis, Pamela and Mauritius for wonderfull staying!

Fabulous place and run by fabulous hosts.

We stayed here for two nights and left feeling refreshed after spending time at this wonderful woodland retreat. If you need peace and quiet then this is the place to come.

The hospitality offered by the hosts, Luis and Pamela, was excellent, nothing was too much trouble - even a lesson on how to make a Pisco Sour!

We opted to have their evening meal on both nights, sea bass the first night and a BBQ the following night. Both were delicious, plentiful and a good price. Breakfast was excellent too with more than the normal fare on offer.

The lounge is a very comfortable, cosy area and time spent in front of the wood burning fires chatting to the hosts and other guests was wonderful.

The hosts are excellent english speakers and are happy to spend time with guests chatting and explaining how this haven in the woods came to be. Very interesting people who have fun and know how to make their guests feel at home.

Don't worry about the house being a short distance from town as lifts are available as necessary. We opted to have a whole day at the house, just relaxing and enjoying the woodland experience and listen to the rain pouring down outside as we sat in front of the log fire.

what service is given, met at the airport whether you are arriving by bus or plane, whisked off to this beautiful location. a hidden gem up on a bluff overlooking the Magellan Straits about 20 mins out of the town...but do not fear the distance, because.......

The owners provide you with a taxi service into town and collect, so going on tours presents no problem. they cannot do enough for you as their guests. we decided to eat their evening meal on arrival and it was a good choice, sea bass for me and mixed grill for the other traveller. Both excellent and cooked by Mama who is a mother to all! Congratulations on a lovely meal and at a decent price.

within a few minutes of arriving into this tranquillity I had seen a long eared owl close enough to photograph . Wandering around their property allowed me to see other birds and I could not resist getting up very early the following day to watch the sunrise over the Magellan Straits. Magical.
I made 2 tours, one a walk in the Nat Pk overlooking the port, and the other a Penguin tour but by land, not sea! Both to be highly recommended.
It was with regret we left this sanctuary, the warmth of the people who run it, the log fires and the cosy rooms. Excellent and thank you.

Room Tip: The rooms are warm, comfortable, clean and don't miss the sauna!
