Casa Marcoleta was a fabulous apartment that turned out to be just what we needed for the last leg of an amazing family vacation. Alexis and his family were able to accommodate an earlier than expected arrival on our part and gave us a third-floor apartment that was not just beautiful, but absolutely sparkling. Every appliance worked, there was no shortage of hot/cold water, and every heater provided the necessary heat in the rooms. A metro stop is just around the corner, as are supermarkets that are easy to walk to. Alexis gave us recommendations and directions whenever he saw us, and always with a smile and willingness to answer any questions we had. We had a late night departure on our last day; even though checkout is at 11:00, Alexis allowed us to have a late checkout of 5:00 p.m. because they weren't expecting guests that day. It saved us from having to either hang around at the airport or wander Santiago while we waited to get to the airport. And when our Uber showed up, Alexis made sure they parked right out front so we didn't have to walk too far with our luggage. Yes, the apartment is beautiful, roomy, and fully functional; it was the gracious hospitality they provided, however, that made our stay at Casa Marcoleta much more than anything we could have hoped for.
