Kiritina's House is honestly the most wonderful place to stay! I really had a great time and would love to have stayed longer! It was much larger than I expected, with all the amenities you could wish for. Maria speaks terrific English which is very comforting when you are traveling solo, and she was so helpful with everything. From booking trips and rides to the town whenever I needed, I can only say good things and I am very grateful. Don't hesitate to book a few night's at Kiritina's House, you won't be disappointed! I would give 6 stars if I could

The guesthouse was a very comfortable and spacious place to stay on my way back from El Chalten to Buenos Aires. Maria is a wonderful host. She was available with communication in advance of and during my visit. While the guest house is uphill from the main drag of town, I found it very accessible to walk to the main shops.

Kiritina's Patagonik House was even better then the photos and description showed. We were warmly welcomed and found the place comfortable and very clean. Even their cats and dogs welcomed us like long lost friends! (outdoors only they are, never allowed inside). The kitchen was stocked with breakfast supplies, milk, butter, yogurt and home made jams. Bread, crackers, muffins and cerial. A nice variety of teas available and fresh ground coffee for coffee maker. The trees provided shelter from the breeze for the lovely outdoor sitting area and Maria let us harvest some fresh peas from her garden to cook with our supper. As the city has recently done some street renaming, but not yet updated the local road maps, we will give Maria the GPS Lat-Long of her house so she can tell people how to find her place using (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Earth or using a personal GPS. Local neighbourhood very safe. It is a new suburb with great views of the local mountains. Thus some empty lots around the place, making you feel you are out in the country. It is only a 10-14 minute walk to the supermarket with good food selection. Food prices roughly same as in Canada. They do take credit cards. It is a 30 minute down hill walk into the center of El Calafete and Maria provided a nice map. Taxi back up the hill was only 47 Pesos and the drivers would take us if we told them we are staying in a "hostel" (the language barrier made it hard to explain we were staying in a B&B so we told them "hostel"). Having Maria's map helped them to get us there. Again, the local gov't renaming streets but not yet updated the maps. BTW, local cabbie's very polite and good driving skills. Change given rounded up to the nearest even Peso as 2 Peso is smallest note. Nice kitchen equipped for two people. Toaster, coffee machine, sandwich maker, fondue pot, fridge. Gas oven and stove with excellent fume/exhaust hood. No microwave oven but we did not need it as we were cooking fresh. Washing machine for cloths tucked under the counter. We hung to dry on the towel rack. Excellent high speed internet link to check on our flights with. A nice quiet place for short or long stay in El Calafate, away from the hustle and noise of the downtown area. We will be staying here on our next visit to El Calafete.

Maria is a wonderful host. She is very helpful with information, prompt in communication and the house is wonderful and charming. The only aspect to consider is the distance from main town. Not knowing spanish, had a little trouble telling the taxi driver's location of the house as it's a new area and sometimes they didn't know exactly where to go. Spanish speakers should have no problem. It was not that big an issue, I would highly recommend the house. Oh and the delicious cookie's were a bonus.

The only negative was that I only stayed for one night. I could have easily stayed at Maria's much longer. Maria's hospitality far exceeded my expectations in the short time that I was there. Beautiful HOME, clean, cozy, and comfortable. Her super warm smile when we first met will not be forgotten. Highly recommended.

Really cozy and great place to spend in peace at Calafate. Maria is a great Host and the place is ideal for a single traveler, couple or family. The location is a bit far away from downtown, but she csn offer you a ride anytime! Highly recommended!

My second stay was so short I never even saw Maria this time, but the place was just as good as the first time, and Maria was very helpful by looking after my suitcase while I was on a two day trip elsewhere, and leaving a key for me as i was arriving late at night
