We loved the position and the house. Neruda had a fascinating life and he certainly collecting everything he came into contact with along the way! We did not allow enough time to view the film (important) and go round the house. We recommend allowing one and a half hours as there is so much to see. Great photo opportunities too.

This is the house of poet Pablo Neruda, winner of a Nobel Prize. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the house is closed as well as the restaurant. However, we could observe the house from the beach. There is a sculpture of Neruda's face on a beach rock.
The house looks very nice from the beach.
Note: This beach is not for swimmers.

Museum of Pablo Neruda's house (and supposedly the best!). 7,000 pesos each, well worth it. Opens at 10am I think, so get there in the morning (the buses were arriving as we left around midday!!) Audio guide (approx. 45 minutes) takes you from room to room and outside spaces and is comprehensive but interesting story telling. We really loved our time here. It is cleverly run so that there are only a certain number of people in the building/s at one time to avoid crushing in small spaces!! Neruda lived such an interesting life and his love of the sea is depicted in this home. Great little store for some memorabiliia and lovely cafe for lunch or just a rest. We came with a private taxi and he said parking is retricted and not allowed outside otherwise the police will come and fine him, so he had to park a distance away and then pick us up at a designated time. All worked well, as we allowed plenty of time to explore (2 hours)

This is a very strange, personal museum, full of items that Pablo Neruda collected and lived with. The audio guide is quite comprehensive and will take about 45 minutes as long as you follow the 14 numbered rooms in the correct order. Fantastic for anyone interested in the sea and sailors as th house has a strong nautical theme. Some good photo spots outside. The views of the sea from each room in the house are fantastic. A bit far out from Santiago for anyone without a car.

Please see pictures. This is an unsafe area. No signs are posted. This is what we came out of the museum to at 1530 in the afternoon on Febraury 19 2020.We were parked right in front. When police arrived they made a report and told us they were aware of the problem in this area. The museum does nothing to keep patrons safe. The museum was very nice but not worth the cost. Need I mention we had a 1 year old with us.

Very nice place but I recommend finding a safer area to explore.
There are better places on Chile

Our visit was ruined because the woman in the attached photo thought it was funny to laugh and make fun of our elderly mother. This staff member is a sorry excuse of a woman and should be fired for her disrespectful behaviour. We confronted her about what she did and this coward tried to deny her actions but we saw what she did. This place could have been a great experience for us but now its just ruined. I hope she is fired and everyone finds out what kind of awful and low life kind of person she is. I dont know why she thought it was ok to laugh and snicker but i hope she realises how wrong she was for doing that.

The museum is magical, everything is beautiful and well preserved. You receive a gadget, similar to a telephone, to do an audio tour, which is very practical. The view of the ocean is breathtaking. It's an amazing experience and a must go place if you're in Chile.

Nerudas’s home by the Pacific Ocean is extraordinary. The house perfectly fits it’s surrondings. The landscapes are wonderfull. Several pieces of art collected by the poet can be seen in this unique villa.

Before you go to the Neruda houses, please read a biography of this remarkable man whose life captures the history of Chile. We had visited the other houses (Santiago and Valpariso) which were amazing but Isla Negra right on the ocean was jaw dropping and provided even more insight into the history of Chile. We go there on city buses from Valparaiso so don't let the expense of a tour keep you from visiting. We did wait a bit for the bus on the return but we were so thrilled by the visit that it didn't bother us.
