1950's two storey wooden construction lovingly restored by owner 5 years ago. Located on Avenida Alemania in the Cerro Mariposas neighbourhood. Ideal for parties and events the house has an open-plan second floor with a phenomenal panoramic view.
Excellent house for parties and events. On the terrace there is a table which comfortably seats 8 and the BBQ is big enough to cook for as many as 30 people comfortably. Apart from the table there is seating for another 10-12 people on the other side of the terrace. The first floor is a 90m2 space which consists of three bedrooms and the bathroom. The master bedroom has a king size bed. The other two bedrooms have queen beds and one also has a futon couch which doubles as a bed for two people. The second floor is an open-plan 80m2 space with sweeping views of the port and surrounding hills (from Cerro Lecheros to Concon to Cerro Playa Ancha to Cerro Yungay = 270 degrees aprox) and has a large kitchen with breakfast bar (seats three), a large dining table (seats six), hi-fi system, disco ball, stripper pole and an up to 30m2 dance floor (note furniture will have to be moved around to clear this space). There is a fire place here together with another futon couch (sleeps two) along with another couch (sleeps one). Please note that the second floor does not have curtains so it is not an ideal place to sleep for the photosensitive.
Guests will have access to the entire house and main terrace (including BBQ) together with the small terrace on the second floor. Only the garage will be off limits.
Interaction with guests
I will be staying 300m away so will be available to help. I will also be contactable by telephone (not until after midday on the 1st though!!!)
Other things to note
It is no problem to park on the street although it is advisable to arrive before 5pm on the 31st as police beging to restrict access after this time and also parking becomes more of a problem.
A $2,000 security deposit will be required. Any damage to stereo equipment or art will be charged at replacement value. I expect guests to leave the house in the same state they found it in although we will take care of any normal housekeeping (dirty plates, sheets, towels etc).
