Pucon chateau / country house description
This 120m2 lodge with private beach, is set on the banks of the gentle, crystal clear, Liucura River! Great fishing, and pools for swimming! Watch the trout jump from our huge terrace shaded by rare native trees! Enjoy a Chilean fine wine as you relax to the beauty and fragrance of the fire of our large wood burning stove! We are in the heart of adventure country! The Huerquehue Park, Cañi Forest Reserve and Nursery, the famous "3 Waterfalls," and several natural hot springs are right close by!
Our native american maid will deliver fresh, hot bread baked in a wood fire stove! Watch smoke rise from the active, snow capped Villarrica Volcano visible from the yard! See the red glow at night! Climbing the volcano, rafting the mighty Trancura class five rapids, and fishing the abundant wild trout are among the treats of our region! The back woods have wild boar and rabbits for the hunters.

We had a wonderful time
We had a wonderful time
We rented the cabin for 10 days and we had such a wonderful time, the cabin was clean and in good condition when we arrived and the hot tub full and HOT HOT HOT - careful when you get in !! After swimming in the deep river swimming holes a hot tub bath at night is wonderful. I understand that other people have problems with the drive way and I would agree that a car with high suspension is a good idea to have an easy drive. The location is fantastic the rivers full of large trout and even salmons ( Jorge the ground keeper caught a 10 kg Salmon ) I sadly only trout but man they are tasty !! The owner provides and excellent guide with maps to all local attractions and we loved this guide. The beds where good and the towels and linens fresh only item missing was toilet paper which we bought at the local store and left some for the next guests. If you have seen the movie " The River Runs Through " than you have a picture what those rivers look like. We found the price more than adequate and ( very reasonable to be honest ) and we will return in fact we did love the area so much that we are now planing to buy some land in or near Pucon.

Second time at this cabin
Second time at this cabin
After honeymooning here 6 years ago, my wife and I decided to use our skymiles and come back. We absolutely love this place and hope to come back yet again! As for a review...here we go: Negative: -both times we have visited, the hot tub has not worked -both times we have visited, the electricity has gone off 1-2 times -the driveway is very rough and not easy to manage in wet or snowy weather Positive: -very charming (in a rustic and earthy way) -far enough away from town to enjoy solitude, but close enough to go out for dinner -the surroundings are gorgeous -the volcano glowing on clear nights -the neighbors/caretakers, Jorge and Adiba, are wonderful...we've had them over twice and they've had us over twice. -the price is a very good value Overall, this place is wonderful. We would love to have the hot tub in working order, but even without it, we've thoroughly enjoyed the cabin and plan to go back as soon as we can. Thanks!

Owner's responseGuest comment entered by owner
This guest was offended since our cleanup team didn't arrive on time. Our house holds 10 people so when guests checkout it's a mess. Sadly he came before the cleanup and was rightfully offended. He was so irate he refused to discuss solutions, and stormed off. I would have given 1/2 price for his trouble. The following day the house and the grounds were cleaned to perfection. We stand pat on every detail specified in our lodge description. The lodge, amenities, beach, are described perfectly.

Grossly misrepresented property
Grossly misrepresented property
This listing description was horribly inaccurate in every way possible. The property is listed as being in Pucon. After leaving Pucon it took us an additional hour to the ramshackle cabin. We rented a car in Temuco, and were barely able to get up the dirt path with deep ruts, which could only be possible to do without scraping the bottom in a high clearance vehicle. This information was not given to us. On arrival it was clear that the owner failed to contact the caretaker of the property, as it was in derelict condition. The car port was tilting to one side as if a strong gust of wind could easily take it down. There was cattle or horse excrement along the path leading to the front door. The house had not been cleaned, and if fact was in deplorable condition. Beds were slept in with dirty linens on them. Floors were filthy, toilets, sinks, shower also filthy. The water was not even turned on. The kitchen was a health hazard with rodent droppings throughout, food on the stove, and counters. The furniture was filthy, the hot tub empty with just a bit of dirty water remaining. We came all the way from the States with our young daughter to spend the Christmas holiday here, and were forced to leave within minutes of looking at the condition of the property. The owner was called, and despite learning of the condition of his property said he would not refund our 50% deposit the he made sure we wired to his account before arriving. He had asked for the whole amount, and we said that is not standard practice. There was no maid, that was for sure, as he had stated on his write up. This place was grossly misrepresented, and the owner dishonest. We incurred a loss and a major expense reorganizing our travel plans over the Christmas holiday due to this false advertisement. This property should be removed from this site so no one else has to experience what we went through. We took several photos to document the state of the property on our arrival.
