About this property

House of Divine Views

In the foothills of the Andes and close to the best outdoor activities in the Los Lagos region, come be charmed by this architect designed La Casa de Vistas Divinas, 'The House of Divine Views', a beautifully decorated, three bedroom, two bath home with Chilean woods, cathedral ceilings, and huge picture windows overlooking the panoramic, snow-capped volcanoes of Mount Osorno, Puntiaguido, and Calbuco. No other vacation rental in this area has this glorious view! The only sounds are the birds, the river, and the waterfall. The walls are decorated with original oil paintings featuring artists from Argentina and Chile. Most of the furniture has been designed and made by local craftspeople.

This home has all the modern conveniences of an American home. There is the fully-equipped kitchen with hand painted Portuguese tile, dishwasher and all the plates, utensils, and cooking ware necessary to create a delicious meal from the locally available Chilean produce or a fish (trout or salmon) that you might have caught in the nearby rivers and lakes. The home also features wood stove, fireplace & electric heaters, screened windows, indoor jacuzzi, large patio with outdoor dining, DVD player/stereo, and an outdoor adjacent quincho “typical Chilean barbecue pavilion.'

The master bedroom, with a high quality king-size bed, looks out towards the snow-capped Volcan Osorno. There is a large walk-in closet and private bath. The two downstairs bedrooms, which share a large bath with an indoor jacuzzi, feature a double bed, and a trundle with 2 twin beds. The bed linen is all 100% cotton, high thread count. The pillows and duvets are made from wonderful Chilean down.

If you need more beds, adjacent guest cabin can sleep 4. You can see photos of the cabin at this site:

In the evening, the large river rock fireplace will beckon you to open a bottle of Chilean wine while you gather to exchange stories of the day's adventures. There is Internet Access so you can keep friends and family informed about the events of your explorations around Ensenada, which is considered one of the top eco-tourism destinations of the Lake District. Adventures could include:

Hiking in the nearby Vicente Rosales National Park, river rafting on the Petrohue River (the Petrohue waterfall is one of the most photographed waterfalls in the world), climbing Volcan Osorno (a 30 minute drive to the Osorno ski lift) or Calbuco (which is right out your back door), horseback riding, windsurfing on Lake Todos Los Santos, mountain biking and birdwatching, canopy rides, paddling a kayak down the Ralun Bay, or canyoning through the gorges of Rio Blanco.

Day trips can include a visit to Chiloe Island, the Angelmo native crafts market, boutique shops, and large shopping malls in Puerto Montt, the historic towns of Fruitillar and Puerto Octay, the spa at Puyehue, and Alerce Andino National Park. The casino and the variety of excellent restaurants in Puerto Varas (especially La Cucina D’Alessandro, offering authentic Italian cuisine) makes for a fun evening experience. Even closer, only 15 minutes from the house, you can dine at the five star Latitude 42 restaurant in the Yan Kee Way Lodge in Ensenada or at the Hotel Petrohue restaurant on the banks of Lake Todos Los Santos.

Overnight excursions to Bariloche and Villa La Angostura just over the border in the Argentina Andes are easily arranged. Ensenada is embarkation point for the famous Andean lake cruise crossing from Chile to Argentina.

Or perhaps you would just want to relax on the terraza in an Adirondack chair with a good book while you watch a native Chilean hawk soar gracefully above, or take a nap in the hammock under the Ulmo trees. The hawks visit the yard at dawn and dusk in search of an occasional scrap of leftover meat. If you are lucky like many have been, you may get a glimpse of the rarely seen Pudu, the adorable indigenous dwarf deer of Patagonia. The surrounding yard and gardens have been designed and planted to the owner’s specifications and include many beautiful trees and flowers that are the delight of the local species of hummingbirds.
The home is set in the middle of an old growth Valdivian rain forest but within a natural clearing that offers spectacular views of the surrounding volcanoes. Let the majesty of the volcanoes seduce you into a state of sublime and spiritual relaxation. The house has gas heaters, electric heaters, a wood burning stove, and a huge fireplace, all contributing to a warm and relaxed ambience.
After a colorful sunset, gaze at the entire Milky Way, the Southern Cross, and other constellations of the Southern Hemisphere. The absence of light pollution creates optimal viewing to the center of the galaxy.

If your party needs more beds or room, than the number the house can sleep comfortably, you can also reserve the guest-house (casita/cabin) on the same property with the same incredible views. The cabin has a queen size bed, a double futon, a full galley kitchen, bathroom with shower, small living room with a dining table and a large deck. It is warmed by a wood-burning fireplace. It is comfortable and nicely appointed.

Your comfortable, magical, Chilean vacation rental home is just a click away.

Owner permission required if reservation less than 3 nights is requested.
$250/night from May to October (to cover heating costs for fall and winter)
$200/night from November to April (spring and summer)

Chilean Vacation
We had a fantastic five day stay at House of Divine Views. The property was wonderful and as depicted. Fully equipped and very comfortable. Matt and Marian were excellent hosts and were available for all our questions. The property is a little more secluded than we expected, but once there, loved the privacy within a gated community of large vacation lots. The location was perfect for day trips exploring the southern Chilean Lake District.

Do yourself a favor and book this house
I can't say enough about this incredible house and the kindness of the hosts. My husband and I have rented homes in dozens of countries and this was definitely one of, if not the most special place we've ever stayed. The hosts were incredibly kind, even updating their Wifi package for us on a days notice so we could work from their home (great connection!). The property is in an incredibly beautiful location, with mountain views from the bed and stunning yard, as well as being a quick drive to incredible hikes, beaches and lakes. We were so comfortable and it was definitely the most well-stocked house in our entire three month stay in Chile. Stay here if you can!!

Perfect Lake District Home Away from Home
We spent three wonderful weeks at the House of Divine Views and loved every minute of it. If we were to build our next house, we’d use this one as the starting blueprint. The master bedroom was amazing. Spacious, architecturally stimulating, full of light from corner to corner, and with a desk and work area that is hard to surpass. The master bedroom, living room, dining room and patio all have magnificent view of Mount Osorno. The wrap around patio provides plenty of space for even large groups. The open space allows you to enjoy the surrounding wilderness without feeling closed in or being deprived of light by the tall, beautiful trees that surround the home. The kitchen is spacious and fully stocked with pretty much any tool you could ask for. Plenty of pots, pans, plates, glasses, silverware, etc. The quincho (outdoor cooking hut with woodburning grill) was fantastic. I made more than a third of our dinners out there, grilling over an open fire, and they all came out great…flavorful and perfectly done. It takes a lot of attention to what you’re grilling, given that it’s an open flame, but it’s worth it. And the location of the home, secluded down a dirt road but centrally located in the Lake District, meant that we had short drives to such wonderful treats as river rafting down the Petrohue River, enjoying the views of Petrohue falls, and hiking in the various national parks that surround the home. But we also relished our days of kicking back in the lounges and Adirondack chairs and enjoying the quiet and stillness of the space. Visits from local falcons and Caracara were an added thrill. We will be back.

House of Devine Views- soooo true
Lovely home tucker deep in the woods, very private, secluded and peaceful . Just what you would expect from Ensenada/Patagonia. Most of the time we were there it rained but it didn't stop us from exploring. Finally on day 4 the clouds broke and the amazing view of the volcano appeared. The views from the backyard and master bedroom of the volcano are incredible. On a clear day the night sky looks like diamonds twinkling. Loved this place! House was neat, clean, cozy and very comfortable. All amenities that you need. Wifi worked well. Wood burning stove and electric heaters kept house warm - large fireplace was under construction but it didn't matter. No TV which we loved - off the grid!! Beds were cozy and warm with great down comforters on them. Definitely need a car to get around!! When you arrive at the front gate entrance, it is a bit of a ride on a dirt road (well maintained) till you reach the house. Got a bit lost heading from Airport in Puerto Montt but figured it out. Directions with pictures from owner were helpful to know we were on the right track. Owners were very responsive and checked in many times to make sure our stay was going well. Very nice people! I would definitely recommend this home if you are staying in this area. It is about 35-40 minutes to Puerto Varas. Only minutes away from the Osorno Volcano park entrance. Some hiking available, beautiful location, very relaxing and great place to share with family and friends.

What a wonderful and relaxing stay in a stunning and peaceful location!
My wife and 3 children had the pleasure of staying at the House of Divine Views for almost a full week. It was part of our 1-year around the world travels, and we feel so lucky to have been able to experience the comfort of the home, the hospitality of Marian and Matt, and the adventure that the surrounding area has to offer. We had some stunning views of Volcan Osorno from our upstairs bedroom window, and especially during the mornings (sunrise) and evenings (sunset). The house was fully equipped, fully functional, and very comfortable. We cooked most of our meals at home, including using the backyard bbq one night. We would highly recommend the stay for anyone that is looking for an off the beaten track (but not too far) getaway.

About the host

Your host

Host profile image
Born in Long Island but a resident of Hawaii since 1968. On a 1998 trip to South America I fell in love with Southern Chile and bought land in an eco- development with waterfalls and hardwood forests. I built this home in 2001, and have loved vacationing here ever since. You will too!

Why they chose this property

The house sits in the middle of a protected Chilean rain forest with spectacular views of Mt. Osorno and Mt. Calbuco. There is a private river close by abounding with trout in season. Very quiet and peaceful. If you are a birder you will be in heaven here.

What makes this property unique

It is peaceful and quiet with great hikes, unique wildlife, and wonderful views of the volcanoes in the day and the galaxy at night. My Swiss manager makes sure everything will be perfect for your stay.
