The address of the property on Tripadvisor is not correct which lead to some difficulty in locating it on our arrival in Mendoza. Luckily we had a driver who was able to phone the owner for directions but it was disconcerting that the correct address was not disclosed and it could have caused serious problems for someone trying to find it on their own in a rental car and /or without the facility to call. As the property is not in a main center, or even in the center of Chacras, that is problematic.
The owner, Andreas, who stays on the property, was very helpful and welcoming. He kindly arranged a driver to take us to dinner one evening too.
The property itself is spacious but there is only air conditioning in one of the three bedrooms, and it is not the master bedroom, so we were relegated to another room to escape the heat.
Be warned that all the beds are rather small which , if you are tall like me, may lead to a less than comfortable night's sleep.
Our group of seven adults, from Western Australia, were pretty keen to enjoy the Mendoza attractions. We were near the end of a month travelling in Argentina, Uruguay and Chile. Andres was a fabulous host. He and his family stayed at the quincho during our 3 night stay. He was very helpful, even ordering in a meal on our first night as we were late in and spoke limited Spanish. The house was perfect for our needs - private, secure and a lovely green oasis after a long bus trip. The pool was popular in the summer heat. An outside clothes line would be useful as there was no dryer in the house. A great stay at a reasonable price. Thanks Andres from the "Lomito People".

We traveled with friends who have young children and this property had everything we needed.
The bedrooms were spacious, they included a baby crib for us. That was very much appreciated. The kitchen had all the space we needed, although we took advantage of the quincho and made asado several days. The pool was definatelly used as we had some warm days while we were there. The pool is fenced which was great as we had a 3 year old with us.
This is a very private house, the large yard/ garden is surrounded by tall trees and house is equipped with an alarm system.
This location at Chacras de Coria is a perfect location for visiting a number of wineries in Lujan de Cuyo, Maipu, and Uco Valley. Also a short drive to downtown Mendoza and enjoy the plaza and sidewalk cafes.
Chacras de Coria main street is only 5 min. drive, where you will find pretty much all you need, stores, restaurants, wines, vegetables and fruits.
Thank you for all your help and hospitality! We had an amazing time in Mendoza!
I am sure we will return to Mendoza, we definatelly recomend this property!
