The charm of the old and the comfort of the modern

Heritage and neighborhood life

We are a Chilean-Uruguayan couple, who disembarked in Valparaíso in 2012, captivated by this other ocean, the Pacific. We arrive at Playa Ancha, this natural plateau, with a privileged view of the bay, the largest and most populated hill of the port city and with a history that dates from the beginning of the 20th century, when there was a process of settlement based on the migratory wave mainly of English. This process is reflected in the buildings located in the sector of the intersection of Avda. Great Britain and Waddington Street. Most of this type of construction was built after the earthquake of 1906.

The sector conserves a life of neighborhood, that is difficult to find in a present city, and the identity that its people have given him, has determined that they denominate like the Independent Republic of Wide Beach.


It is close to the most typical beaches in the city such as Las Torpederas and San Mateo, as well as El Membrillo Cove, Paseo 21 de Mayo and other attractions.
The foregoing, motivated us to acquire this property (current Loft Waddington), without being entrepreneurs of tourism, but professionals of the humanist area, to embark on this beautiful challenge of making an alternative tourism project, in terms of respecting and putting in value this piece of history so that others, like us can go and enjoy this heritage neighborhood par excellence.


The house was designed by the English architect Arthur Lewelyn, in 1910, and declared a historic conservation property in 2004. It was restored from 2012, retaining its original design, modifying only internal distribution, to create four spacious and comfortable lofts, to receive those who visit us and who can enjoy the best experience during your stay. They are distributed, two on the first floor, with access through the main entrance of the house and two on the second floor overlooking the sea. Each one has independent access, private bathroom, equipped kitchen, private parking, wifi, cable TV. The establishment has a closed circuit of security cameras


We invite you to visit us and let yourself be enchanted with this environment, for this we have designed three circuits that will facilitate this experience.
