A home and experience that follows the architecture of the soul – magical spaces both inside and out. An environment beautifully integrated into its surroundings, with warm and earthy spaces inside for contemplation and relaxation. Delicious food, with overwhelming attention to detail, and everything straight from the heart. Bernalene is a radiant person and exceptional host.

The minute you step through the gate you know you are entering something special and very much unique,the host is most delightful and makes you instantly feel at home,food is very good and freshly prepared all on site including the delicious bread for breakfast,rooms are clean ,spacious and unique brimming with character not to mention the hand paintings and the owners artful touches throughout the property which combined with the quirky structure of the rooms makes this one of the most interesting guesthouses we have ever stayed in,you will not be disappointed...oh and it is situated right on the beautiful beach which is great for exploring the warm Indian Ocean

Yes the staff was super friendly and helpful and kind, yes the breakfast was super great and the place was spotlessly clean and I can not describe the ocean view in words..... but there is something beyond those criteria about Valparaiso guesthouse.
What makes it especial is the whole experience. Bernalele, the owner, is an artist and Valparaiso is an installation art. From the moment you turn into the red dusty road she takes you into a Latin American magic realism novel plot. Every room has a story, and every detail is well taught and presented. Everything is connected to eachother as if even the location, the view of the ocean and the beach are also part of the installation art you are experiencing. Even the way Bernalene personally presents and serves the breakfast everyday. I strongly recommend this place not only as a very good place to stay, but also as a unique experience which doesn't seem to happen every day.
