I had a great experience staying at Pelao's apartment. I speak very, very little spanish, but Pelao's spoken english is excellent. It was not difficult getting situated here, even though few people speak English in Chile. Pelao was very accommodating, answered my many questions, and provided me with lot of good info and history of the area :) Las Condes is a very wealthy part of Santiago. The walk to the metro station at Escuela Militar takes 15 minutes. A walk to Jumbo (a very well-stocked grocery/department store) takes 15 minutes. This is a very safe area, day and night. The shared bathroom is fine, but it only has hot water in the mornings (he heats the water overnight when electricity is cheaper). The kitchen is small, but generally well stocked. The washing machine is a great little device. Clothes must be hung to dry on the patio. If it's a full house (there's 3 bedrooms + Pelao's), finding space on the air-drying laundry rack may be tricky :\ It takes about 45min - 1 hr walking/train to get to downtown Santiago. It cost 21,000 CLP to take a solo cab from the airport. It's cheaper (and takes longer) if you share a minibus cab. The metro does *not* go to the airport. I came in winter, but the room I stayed in is north-facing. See the big window in the picture? It's excellent and provides sun almost all day :) I sat like a warm sunflower by the window while I worked on my laptop. The internet is very fast: 33 Mbps down, 4.27 Mbps up. It's fiber.
