Our home

Large, spacious vacation home build in 2003. We named it Kagua Kolke �looking the stars� in the original huarpes indigenous language. There is air conditioning that you probably will never need to use because the steady breeze. Yes we have all the modern comforts you expect. The rooms are very large. The house has a mirador for better appreciate the surroundings. In the west you have the Tupungato and in the east the valley, the looks are awasome. The architecture is typical of the area, Spanish style, and brick and rustic. The caretakers live next to you in their own house, and will help with your needs of cleaning and cooking. There is a large barbecue with a mud oven where you can eat delicious food. The property has all kind of fruit trees (cherries, apples, pears, prunes, figs, oranges, grapefruits, walnuts) and our family kids have a good time helping in the harvest. Jump into the swimming pool to cool down, and enjoy the sprinkler watered grass.

Who we are

  1. I am a Family Physician still working in my clinic partime. My name is Alexander Isgut, and my wife, Doraliza, is the administrator. Originally we are from Mendoza, Argentina, where we have our other "retirement home" in Tupungato. We are now transitioning gradually to retirement intenting to work 9 months per year for the next two years and then only 6 months for year until Alzheimer's strikes. We have good experiences in the past in exchanging homes and meeting people.
    We enjoy Europe but are adventorous enough to go other places, we have enjoyed China, New Zeland, Colombia, Paraguay, etc.
    Our best months to travel are January, February, March or September/October, in non simultaneus exchanges in Naples, Florida or in Mendoza, Argentina.
