The cottage, with kitchen and bath, was delightful airy and fresh. Jorge and Techy, the owners were beyond helpful. In fact when we broke down in the desert and ended up walking 25 kilometers to reach a cell signal, Jorge picked us up at 3:30 in the morning and was really cheerful about it! Our tired feet thank you and...

We spend a wonderful week, Jorge and Techy the owner were fantastic, the location was perfect for us.....the place is just outside the town (4 km)...I will recommend to travel or rent a car it will make you live so much easier. The Atacama desert is a must if you want to travel/visit another world.

The owners were very kind to us, and provided a fantastic service during our stay. The rooms were clean and tidy. I told my friend about our stay and he went there a few weeks after us, and he had a great stay aswell.

Do NOT stay at this place. 1. The manager added extra charges when we arrived for us having 2 beds in one room (even though this was the setup of the room). You will end up paying MORE than what you reserved. This was not written on the reservation or booking.com. 2. The location is VERY FAR from town AND...

Good location if you want a quiet stay, but was really hard to find. The trails have no names and the ranch's sign is not visible from the trail. The directions we were given were not correct at all. We had to stop and ask 3 times. Not far if you have a vehicle. No WiFi, but you can ask...

About rancho quitapenas you need to now that it is far away from San Pedro. The drive is not nice on a very sandy and narrow road. It takes 10-15 Minutes. We punctured our wheel on that road. In our room we had a lot of small bugs and spiders which came during night. Overall, everything is a bit worn...

Housekeeper Macarena is the main reason to stay here. Location is about 5 km away from the main town so you need to bring your own supplies. Plus it would have been helpful to know beforehand that this is a cash only place. Water stopped working in the morning but again Macarena was helpful. Good stay if you have a...

Very nice quiet place to stay outside San Pedro in a real adobe house. The rooms are clean and clear, the garden is big with lots of trees. We had dinner under the stars and the owner is very nice ! The perfect place to stay

We stayed for 2 weeks, Jorge was incredibly helpful, recommending places to go and the best times of day to go to the various locations. As mentioned by others, it's best to rent a car if staying there, as it is a little out of town Would definitely stay here again if I return to San Pedro

We stayed in a double room with private bathroom which is attached to the main residence. There are also freestanding cabins with kitchenette available. Our room was clean and tidy and had nice hot solar-powered showers. Jorge is a very welcoming and helpful host who also does guided tours around the area. The location is in the desert about 10...
