I think that the apartment’s huge patio area is one of its best assets, so we took a lot of care in furnishing it so that you can be comfortable spending your time there…Enjoying a delicious meal or playing one of the apartment’s board games View from the terrace overlooking the quaint fisherman's town of Horcon

We had a wonderful stay here over Christmas and New Year and provided us with everything we required. The condo is fully equipped with swimming pool, jacuzzi, little shop, gym and football and tennis courts. There are two beaches, one a stones throw away which was secluded and another a 10minute walk away that had restaurants, bars and shops at it. The view from the apartment was amazing and we had the pleasure of watching some amazing fireworks from our balcony on New Years Eve. The apartment was fully equipped with everything you need, TV, kitchen utensils, table inside and on the balcony, and enough space for our family of four. We loved lazing around the pool and going to beach to swim in the waves and build sandcastles. Our host was very communicable, and helped us in every way possible before, during and after our stay. Such a memorable Xmas and new year, one we will never forget!

A fabulous location with easy access to beautiful Caucau beach and a short walk to Horcon. The apartment is lovely with a good sized balcony to sit on and enjoy the magnificent ocean views. Would definitely recommend as a reasonably priced and enjoyable holiday experience.

My favorite feature of the apartment is the view of Horcón; I enjoyed sitting on the terrace with my morning coffee, watching horses pull the fishing boats up onto shore. And Cau Cau is a really lovely beach. The apartment is in a self-sufficient condominium development. We were there off-season, so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Laundry requires purchase of tokens, but is very close to the apartment; I was grateful for multiple machines because, after several weeks on the road, we had a lot of laundry to do!

Penny fue una excelente anfitriona, coordinó conmigo la entrega de las llaves en Santiago, y me dió todas las indicaciones necesarias. El departamento es igual que en las fotos, la vista es espectacular, el condominio muy tranquilo, silencioso y seguro, y lo mejor es que se puede acceder a la playa por el mismo condominio. Disfrutamos mucho los juegos de mesa que habían a disposición. Camas cómodas y en buen estado y ropa de cama de buena calidad. Hay una tienda de abarrotes en el mismo condominio; con atención continuada, con precios accequibles y variados productos, y áreas verdes y juegos para los niños. Absolutamente recomendable!

Muy recomendable el departamento para ir con niños. El condominio tiene todas las instalaciones necesarias para que ellos disfruten de la estadía: juegos, cancha de tenis, un espacio de playa cercado ideal para que los más pequeños jueguen con arena y sin peligro de irse a meter al agua, pero a la vez con acceso a la playa. Todo a la mano, ideal!!

I love to travel - most of the time with the kids in tow but sometimes it's nice just to getaway with the hubby! I live in Santiago, Chile, although I am originally from Montreal, Quebec. My parents are Chilean but I had never gone to Chile until about eight years ago when I met the love of my life and decided to stay and make my life there. I LOVE living in Chile and can't imagine going back to Canada - except for visits, of course!
