Gary was very helpful before and during our stay. With buses and tips etc. We loved everything including being so close to the surf, the quiet area, great restaurants close by, fabulous people and culture, the dogs - Luna and Lobo and Marta. Marta is fantastic and such a generous lady with her time. Hard to leave the place really!

Marta is a wonderful host and does everything to make the guests feel at home. She even gave us a Christmas tree! Unfortunately, the property hasn't been maintained at all by its owner, Gary, and so the place is a death trap for toddlers and reeks of sewage which flows back up all over the yard.

Response from Gary:
Firstly- The property has been under the adminstratiion of Marta for some time with long term tenants who did not compalin and I was assured that everything is OK. Of course standards in Germany are not the same as Latin America and so the property may not appeal to those unaccustomed to Latin American standards. However every effort is now being made to attend to these details. Some items such as extending the leach drain system for shower water will probably be done after the end of summer so as not to inconvenience guests. Secondly The building has a ecological sewerage system where "grey water" from the shower, washing machine, hand basin is treated separately from waste coming from the toilet which goes straight in to the septic tank. Stehans group enjoyed the convenience of being very close to the beach enabling them even with small children to make many visits to the beach sometimes up to 3 times a day and each time returning for a nice hot shower. (Note there are no public showers or free toilets at the beach) This excessive water usuage combined with sand washed down the shower put considerable stress on the system not designed for such excessive use which until now has worked OK. However minor overflow/dampness which may have occurred would have only been water from the shower or washing machine. Thirdly: This problem was rectified by a truck coming and pumping out the system towards the end of Stephans stay but could have been rectified earlier had he communicated directly with his host/owner which he never did after his arrival. Fourthly: Stephan booked for three people but turned up with an infant as well as his other child. It clearly states the property is not suitable for young children unless closely supervised. To describe the property as a "graveyard for toddlers" a slight exaggeration to say the least. Any local street is far more dangerous for a unsupervised toddler. This situation has now been partly recitifed by Aribnb's new policy of guests having to declare infants. Fifthly: There is no such thing as "free lunch" - yes there are minor details of the construction not completely finished and maintenance this is common in South America but then the apartments are priced accordingly - cheap for the views and location. All the apartments were personally designed by myself and all different with most of the construction supervised by myself. They have been constructed with the needs of foreign surfers in mind - all solid construction designed to last for years using native materials (already survived 2010 earthquake) with real hot water, floor to ceiling tiled bathrooms with modern fittings, a comfortable bed and cooking facilities with a good size fridge.

We had a very nice week end in Pichilemu! We didn't meet Gary but his friend Marta, who was very kind with us. She even gave us wood for the heating and a toaster for our breakfast! The house is not very big but perfect for a week end or short holidays. It is very well located (50 meters from the beach). Only bad point, the oven doesn't work

It's a four house complex. This apartment is in the house in the back. It's simple furnished but you have everything what you need. It comes with a oven what is very nice for chilly nights. WiFi is good. Outside need a little maintenance. Inside it was tidy. It's just a few meters away from the beach. The next supermarket you will find 1 km away. Gary, the owner (he's not living here) was friendly and helpful. He speaks english and always answered right away. Marta (she's living here) is also very friendly and helps you out with every little thing. She just speaks spanish. The apartment is not overwhelming but ok for a few nights close to the beach. We stayed 7 nights and enjoyed it. ;-)

Windsurfer and Kite surfer who likes good uncrowded spots for wave sailing/kiting. I am prepared to wait for the right conditions in places which are not so consistent to avoid crowds. Pichilemu is one of these places.
