Why Mark E. Smith chose Concón
I've lived in Con Con Chile since 1995. I enjoy the area enough to have made the major commitment of buying a house here. We have an interest in La Casa Cafe and Navigator's Nook and manage those and other properties. The area is a great place to visit.

muy buena atencion de Mark y familia.recomendable.excelente vista.muy bien equipado el dpto.
Just look at the photo of the full moon on the VRBO site. We were treated to that same scene on our last day. The Casa itself is rustic but we found it charming. and the location and view are stunning! It's perfectly located for day trips up and down the coast and we took advantage of that.
If you want modern luxury, stay in one of the cookie cutter condos in Vina Del Mar. If you don't mind a little rustico, and want incredible views and location, pick this place!!
Spacious with great view
Stayed at La Casa Cafe solo for two weeks in January. The house was quite spacious with a large deck which had several seating areas and included a table and 4 chairs as well as a couple of rataan chairs and 2 (low end) loungers. The inside furniture was heavy duty and very functional. Excellent views from every room except the bathroom. Tile floors throughout so slippers or sandals are helpful unless you enjoy "earthing" in bare feet. Comfortable bed in main bedroom and two bunk beds in smaller second bedroom that I didn't use.
Kitchen was pretty well equipped with utensils, cookware, dishes and glasses. It also has a blender which I used every day, a new hot kettle which was provided to me when I checked in since the old one had apparently died, toaster oven, toaster, good size refrigerator, and a functional 4 burner gas (propane) stove and oven which lights manually with matches.
Cool place to hang out and watch the surfers and activities down below. I did interval running on the beach or adjacent path most mornings. The beach is more dirt than sand and gets its share of litter from the locals. Doesn't compare to Southern California beaches but the sound of the surf from the house, and the setting and view are nonetheless inspiring. It's a 4 minute downhill walk to the beach. Single car attached garage is adjacent to the house with direct access. Very good security for the house and garage.
Mark, the owner, and his Spanish speaking henchman Carlos were most helpful. Mark went out of his way to pay his respects and make sure everything was OK. Very nice guy, also originally from California and now living a couple of doors down from the rental house. He bought the properties and has done a good job of turning them into nice rentals. Mark is a very affable, easy guy to deal with and very responsive to emails or direct requests. He promptly refunded my entire damage deposit within two days of my departure. I recommend the house I stayed in, or his other adjacent rentals if they fit your space requirements. You'll love the view and ocean sounds and smells. And maybe you'll like all the seagulls constantly flying about.
I recommend the house to families, couples, or singles.
We really enjoyed the view and the accommodations were clean. Owner was very attentive to our needs. Easy walk to a great beach clos to vina del mar was all round great experience.
The location is great, near the beach and has a large terrace from where you can appreciate the view. The house is large but should be renewed in the furnishing. It is well connected with all the coast. The beach is very large but it is dirty. There are many outdoor activities you can do. The owner is present at your need. If you stay for a long time, I recommend the house keeper - a wonderful person -. The city has everything you need. If you go by car there is also private parking.
