Good Value home from home in Puerto Varas

“Kalfu” means “blue” in the language of the Mapuche people who have inhabited the region for centuries and 'The Blue House' is a very popular guesthouse in Puerto Varas. Casa Kalfu is run by its friendly, English-speaking owners, Carmen García Cambiaso and Horacio Bovolo, who together have over 40 years' experience in the hotel industry and the personal touch is extended through to everything that the hotel offers.

On the ground floor the hotel offers a well-stocked bar and comfortable lounge with great views overlooking the lake and it’'s a great space to sit and unwind. The hotel offers a complimentary breakfast buffet each morning that includes homemade regional pastries. There are 14 guestrooms at the hotel each decorated using regionally inspired artwork and furniture. All rooms include flat screen cable television, individual heating and there is free WiFi in the lobby.


  • Great location in Puerto Varas with restaurants and shops within a short walk

  • Lovely views over the lake from the lounge and selected bedrooms

  • Good value

  • Personal service from the owners

In Our Opinion

"Casa Kaflu is a simple guesthouse, but it’'s difficult not to be won over by the charms of both the building and the owners. It’'s an ideal base for a few days in the area”."


There are just 29 cosy rooms at Casa Kalfu, 6 of which enjoy breath-taking views of Lake Llanquihue and Osorno Volcano.

The average size of rooms is 23m2 and all are decorated in an elegant way with local touches such as artisan pieces. All rooms include hand-woven linens and high quality duvet bedding, and are equipped with flat screen cable television, state-of-the-art insulation and temperature control settings.
