Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Pirque - Casa Ishi - Casita Del Jardin

Lovely Loft With Full Kitchen, Bathroom, Dining Area, Seating Area, Sleeps 2

Our newly renovated Casita del Jardin guest house, features wood beamed ceilings, hand made tiles in the kitchen and bathroom, and kitchen cabinets crafted by a local artisan. The living area is equipped with a king bed, antique dining table and comfortable sitting area. Enjoy a bottle of wine looking out on our beautiful garden.

The guest house is located on the Casa Ishi villa, which welcomes guests, on our expansive 2.5-acre, 10,000 square meter property. Relax in the super dry Mediterranean climate, which provides superb weather from October through April.

Enjoy the best that Chile has to offer – food, wine, outdoor activities and spectacular weather, while relaxing in the countryside in a private villa. And you are only 30 miles from the center of Santiago. Casa Ishi is located in San Juan de Pirque, a semi-rural area in the renowned Maipo Valley. This is the most celebrated appellation in Chile, home to some of the oldest vineyards in South America. Nearby wineries include Concha y Toro, Almaviva, Haras de Pirque, Cousiño Macul, De Martino and Santa Rita, where you can have tours, tastings and dine on fine cuisine.

Casa Ishi is only 10 minutes from the center of Pirque there you can shop in our brand new super market, eat in local restaurants and cafes, gas up your car, access the ATM, or visit the distinguished Concha Y Toro Winery located right in the middle of Pirque. For outdoor enthusiasts, we are on the road to the San Francisco glacier and access to the Andes. This is a great alternative to staying in Santiago, and we are an easy 50-minute drive from the Santiago airport!

Casa Ishi, is an oasis. Century old palm trees lace our majestic gardens, along with gorgeous perennial flowering plants. Wander through our bountiful property, where you can pick fruit from our apricot, avocado, fig, lemon, orange, plum, walnut trees and grape arbors. Have a private chef prepare scrumptious meals in our mud oven, stone barbecue or in your fully equipped kitchen, or dine in colorful local restaurants.

About Michelle

Michelle is an avid gardener, and lover of food and wine. I found my paradise in Chile, where there are the freshest organic vegetables, outstanding wines and some of the most delicious olive oil that I have ever tasted. And what could be better than being able to cultivate many of these riches on my own property.

Michelle purchased this house in 2009

Why Michelle chose Chile

The Mediterranean climate is unbeatable. At the Casa Ishi Villa we are minutes away from some the best wineries in the world. A half hour from the Andes mountains, where there is a wide range of outdoor activity to suit your needs. And less than an hour from the center of Santiago and the international airport. It is hard to find a more convenient location.

What makes this house unique

Chile is unlike any other country in South America. Because of its natural beauty, high literacy rate, and fairly stable political situation, it can be best described as the Switzerland of the south. Chile is a paradise for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. Within the country, one can find a diverse variety of landscapes including vineyards, volcanoes, deserts, beaches, lakes, glaciers and forests. Nature, culture, food and people just are few of the reasons to visit Chile.

Come and enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely property set in a lovely location with beautiful gardens. The location is fantastic, just a short drive away from the Concha y Toro vineyards and about 40 minutes from airport. Great location for touring the vineyards or the centre of Santiago. There are a number of restaurants nearby and lunch at the Concha y Toro vineyard was wonderful and reasonably priced too. The booking was very straightforward and the owner Michelle made sure everything was organised perfectly for our stay. The caretaker and his wife were very helpful. We really enjoyed our stay in the house and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone not wanting to stay in a hotel, this is much much better.

Beautiful property and hosts

  • 5 of 5

Michelle and Teiji have a beautiful property approximately an hour from Santiago. The grounds are perfectly manicured with lovely flowers and fruit trees, and the two houses are artfully decorated and well maintained. There was always the sound of running water from the nearby river, providing a wonderful backdrop. They were both fantastic hosts and recommended several winieries nearby to visit. Would recommend to anyone looking for a respite just outside Santiago.

I LOVE Casa Ishi!!!! It’s the perfect hideaway in the middle of it all - a stone’s throw from some really fantastic vineyards and beautiful mountain vistas. Our favorite was a day spent at the nearby Santa Rita Vineyards where we had a fantastic lunch at the historic Dona Paula Restaurant - amazing scenery, unbelievable pre-Columbian museum and a delicious meal to boot. Returning home to Casa Ishi was a pleasure - sipping our newly purchased vintages under a trellis covered in vines with ripe grapes for the picking. Great location, beautiful grounds, immaculate and comfortable rooms, and the owners are the consummate hosts. Can’t wait to return!!!

It's Paradise Here!

  • 5 of 5

The villa and property are absolutely gorgeous. The guest house has been beautifully renovated and was very comfortable. The gardens were in full bloom as well as many of the fruit trees. We even picked fruit to have with our breakfast every day. We were truly in paradise!

The location of Casa Ishi can't be beaten. It is centrally located to everything there is to do in the Maipo Valley. We took a couple of day trips to Santigo, visited several world-class wineries, went on an incredible full-day trail ride, and rafted down the Maipo River.

I will definitely be coming back and would highly recommend Casa Ishi to anyone!

Romantic cottage on gorgeous estate with amenities

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the smaller one-bedroom house at Casa Ishi. It was lovely and beautifully well tended—with lovely details from the dishes and cutlery, to the bottle of wine awaiting our arrival, to small bottles of shampoo and soap for us to use. The owners are wonderfully attentive, making sure you have everything you need to enjoy your stay and a variety of day trips in the gorgeous surrounding valley. The whole thing was a treat, and I would love to visit again!

Casa Ishi was fabulous! My sister and I were there for 2 weeks and used it as our home base for our trip around Chile. It is centrally located in the Maipo Valley, where many of the best wineries are. It is just about 45 mins to Santiago as well as 30 minutes to great adventure travel such as horseback riding, zip lining and white water rafting. Our accommodations were excellent with great views of the Maipo River and the owners amazing gardens with beautiful flowers and delicious fruit trees.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 1 yr old son and I stayed here for 3 nights and had an absolutely wonderful time. We actually live in Santiago, and this was a perfect relaxing getaway for us. The loft is impeccable. We've stayed in hotels, hostels, b&bs all over Chile, and I've never seen a room so clean and well-kept. The loft has plenty of space, and the fully equipped kitchen has a gorgeous view of the valley. The bathroom is also spacious and very modern as well.

In addition to the cozy loft, you have this huge property to enjoy and explore. Every inch is beautiful. The long entrance is lined with lavender, sitting areas are shaded by grape vine canopies, and the most unique succulents are found all around. There is a huge grill and mud oven that you are free to use to have a typical Chilean "asado."

The owners and caretakers are not just welcoming but extremely helpful for anything you may need. As we live so close, we will definitely come back for another stay. The loft is a hidden gem, and the property is gorgeous. Totally recommended!
