Description of the Pucon vacation home rental
GRACIAS A LA VIDA is a charming, one-of-a-kind, vacation paradise that dances with color and light. Our home is named after the famous Violeta Parra folk song, "Thanks to Life!" Perched dramatically atop a pastoral hill 3 miles outside of Pucon, in the foothills of the majestic Villarrica Volcano. Gaze to the north at sparkling 16-mile-long Lake Villarrica, end to end. Look south toward an immediate, unobstructed view of the volcano. Curved, faux painted walls in bright, elemental colors; convex, sweeping ceilings; gleaming copper sinks; colorful indigenous art in every room; comfortable furniture; and all of the modern conveniences of home. The furnishings and art are indigenous-inspired, and include photos and art gathered from the owners'travels. Gorgeous flowers, lovely native landscaping, fruit trees, rooftop terrace with jetted spa, typical Chilean grill, wood-fired pizza oven.

[ASK ALSO about our brand-new, secluded cabana, AMOR DEL LAGO, which can accomodate 4 guests in beds, plus a single, high inflatable bed. Fabulous lake view, amenities. $200/night. On the same property.]

The sunlit, pumpkin-colored, Machu Picchu Master Bedroom suite offers a dramatic lake view, sliding doors to a circular brick terrace, walk-in closet, stone double shower, looking out directly at the volcano, with massage and rain heads. The Sunflower Room, in a restful blue, has a queen bed, an equally dramatic vista of the Lake and Mountain backdrop as well as a sliding door to the terrace, and a desk. The Poppy Room, which has both lake and volcano views, is furnished with a twin bed and a desk. Soak in the indoor tub/shower of the guest bathroom (shared by the Sunflower and Poppy rooms) and enjoy a marvelous volcano view as you bathe. The mattresses in all three rooms are super-comfortable, with high-thread-count bedding. An optional, queen-sized, inflatable aero-bed with a foam mattress topper can also be set up in the living room for two additional guests.

The cheery kitchen contains a large copper farmhouse sink, bar sink, breakfast peninsula, quiet dishwasher, microwave, and all the cookware, dishes, and utensils that you might need. Our caretaker family, along with their noble German shepherd, Salomon, our adorable golden retriever puppy, Dulce de Leche, and Garfield, the cat, live below and across the driveway from our home.

The perfect getaway while enjoying the wide array of activities in the spectacularly scenic Chilean Lake District. Enjoy hiking in the beautiful nearby national parks, rafting the Trancura River, climbing or skiing the volcano, and soaking in a local hot spring (if you can tear yourself away from our Symphonic Wave Seat, super-jetted roofop VitaSpa). Visit one of the dozens of restaurants in Pucon or dine indoors or out while savoring the most panoramic view Pucon has to offer, right from our rooftop terrace. After a magical sunset, gaze at the entire Milky Way, the Southern Cross, and other constellations of the Southern Hemisphere. Listen to the sounds of the native bandurrias (geese) and, if you are fortunate, green parrots will land in the trees just outside the bedroom windows.

Pucon has limitless possibilities for recreation and enjoyment. When you want to return to your home away from home, treat yourself to a massage or yoga class just ten minutes away in Pucon. Relax on the deck, day or night, in our spa, beneath our ten-foot, lighted umbrella. We can promise an unforgettable stay. You may find that you don't even want to leave the house and the land!
