 1  Dr. Mike Seddon / A little piece of Austria
Dear Ida y Hector,

Unfortunately I am back at work but I did wish to thank you both for making our first trip to Argentina so memorable.
My wife, not an outdoor person, says it was the best vacation she has ever had and to catch her first trout was a bonus.
San Martin is a little piece of Austria in Argentina and your cabanas are a beautiful example of this both inside and out. To stay in such a beautiful setting, next to a stream, quiet and yet in the centre of town close to shops and ... view more restaurants, is remarkable.
There is hospitality and hospitality and both of you put the Hilton chain to shame. We have traveled the world and I can honestly say from riads in Marrakech to 5 star hotels in Rome, never have we had better hosts.
Lending us your personal equipment when Delta lost our luggage to sharing "fish stories" over a bottle of wine, are but two examples of how an innkeeper quickly becomes a dear friend.
The guide services you arranged were like your establishment, excellent and affordable and I will be writing separately to Carlos to thank him. We will see you in March with the whole of my family.
Thank you again, your friend Mike Seddon (11/11/2007).

 2  Guido Vervoort / Very nice memories
Dear Hector,

The trip back was also extremely hectic: changing flights and flight schedules.
By now we are recovered and the only thing that we remain are very nice memories of an extremely fine holday.
Thank you for the organization. Thanks again for all the good services.

Best regards,

Guido Vervoort (January, 2008).

 3  Laura Osborn and Rick Katz / Best of all was the hospitality of Hector and Ida
We came to Northern Patagonia primarily for the mountains and hiking. We stayed at Arco Iris for the second week of our trip. The cabanas are terrific, in a quiet location. Hector’s knowledge of the local roads, lakes and trails was invaluable. The town of San Martin has all the services a traveler may need. Best of all was the hospitality of Hector and Ida. Our cabana was truly a home away from home.

Hector and Ida provided us with a wonderful experience of true Argentinean hospitality. The accommodation were wonderful. Our cabin was very clean and spacious.
Their backyard has a trout stream where you can catch trout a few yards from your lodging.
If you wish to visit wonderful San martin de los Andes, Arco Iris Cabins should be your destination. From the 10 "Amigos Americanos"

Hola Hector and Ida!

We wanted to send you a thank you testimonial from America.
Ann and I had such a wonderful time staying with you both in your lovely cabins.
You may remember us as two of the crazy ten Americans who were just there.
We have traveled quite a bit in many parts of the world and have never experienced a better host and hostess. Your attention to detail and personal care is, in our experience, unsurpassed.
From advice on the best restaurants in San Martin, reservations ... view more when we wished, setting up the guided fly fishing float trip and joining us for the dinner we cooked on your wonderful grill, we really couldn't have asked for more.
You and your wonderful property are the best promotion Argentina and San Martin could hope for.
The trout stream is a treasure! We had never fly fished before and your advice was certainly welcomed.

We were sad when we had to leave and miss you both. It seems odd, we only just got to know you but this shows what kind people you are. Feel free to post our names on your web site if you like. We wish you both the best and will contact you before we visit again. Thanks for everything!

On my first trip to San Martin in 1995, I stayed with Hector and Ida at Arco Iris Cabins.
I've been back four times since - twice with my wife.
They're great hosts, and San Martin is a beautiful town.
Many excellent restaurants, but none as good as an Asado at Arco Iris.
The fishing on the Chimehuin, Malleo, Caleufu and other nearby rivers is superb. Bravo!

Well, I am finally getting the chance to write to you. I was determined to go on a vacation with the man of my dreams. He was the one who told me about a place where I could go (with him). He told me it had everything I was looking for in a vacation place. I did go for two full weeks.

I found heaven on earth, paradise, a healing place, everything and more that I had heard about and seen in photographs. I found the warm sun, warm hearts, open arms, smiles, kindness, acceptance, safety.
I drank the ... view more wonderful wines, ate the delicious food, hiked the breath-taking country side, floated the beautiful rivers, went fishing and caught 5 rainbow trout one day.
We fished and hiked alone, with a guide, in a lagoon, in rivers, in the most picturesque settings. Slept with the windows wide open (and could see the stars), and warmed myself in the sun. I rode gondola to a mountain top, hiked to a waterfall, saw llamas, red deer, kingfisher birds.
My love arranged for everything, along with his (now mine) friends, who owned the cabanas where we stayed.

The unit was spotless clean, everyday the maid came in to tidy up after us. I didn't have to think about anything, my brain went on vacation, the tenseness in my body went away, and I thoroughly enjoyed every single minute I was there.
It was the most elegant, relaxing, fun, therapeutic vacation I have ever taken. I can't wait until I can return to this paradise many more times.
Ok, to you both. Thank you so much for being who you are. I smile so often during the day at funny moments, we shared. I miss you guys. I miss the dogs. I'd like to say it's good to be home, but I can't. I miss the warmth of your sun... My love to you both, hugs and kisses.

San Martin de Los Andes was in a setting that reminded me of a child's picture book--a gleaming lake set down like a gem surrounded by gorgeous mountain peaks. Then we came to what would soon become our home away from home Arco Iris. This idyllic setting is like a Hansel and Gretel cottage (only much larger) with a large creek out back a garden full of the largest purple lupines I have ever seen. But what made this trip unique were our hosts Ida and Hector . They were the most gracious host and hostess ... view more that we have ever met and we have traveled throughout the world. We were in Argentina for three weeks and used Arco Iris as our home base. Each time we returned Ida and Hector were so welcoming and accommodating that it really felt like being home--they took very good care of us. The town was gorgeous, the accommodations beyond repute and we look forward to returning again and again.

The best place in the world for fly-fishing (many rivers and lakes in less than 30 minutes drive). Really nice living at Arco Iris Cabins with the owner Hector and his wife Ida. San Martin is a beautiful town for the whole family.
