Photos and Description of this Concón holiday apartment

1 Bedroom, Living room with Trundle bed. Sleeps 4. Best for families.

The Crow's Nest is located overlooking the Ocean. It's a short walk to the beach, A short walk to markets, shops and restaurants. Public transportation is very close.

The Apartment was originally the top level of a very solid and well built house on the coast. We renovated it into three separate and very private units.

In 2010 we further renovated the Crow's Nest apartment replacing the windows with PVC Double Pane windows. The floors, the furniture, the Kitchen and the bathroom were also redone. The ending result is a very comfortable, solid, secure and private apartment.

The whole structure was well tested on February 28 2010 when Chile experienced an 8.8 earthquake and the building sustained no damage.

It is a very comfortable apartment with an incredible view out over the Ocean and Mountains. Con Con, Mauco Mountain and the Bay of Con Con have a certain attraction that causes people to really enjoy the area

All the apartments at Con Con Bay are very comfortable with impressive views out and over the Ocean. The Coastal Mountains and even the Andes can be seen on a clear day. The exposure is Northern, meaning it gets a complete view of the Sunrise and the Moonrise all year long. This also means we have much better solar exposure. The Sun in summer goes over top with Ocean breezes keeping the apartment cool and comfortable. The Sun in the winter is lower coming up in on a clear day and helping to heat.

The Beach below is something i recognized as special when i first saw it back in 1994. Many changes since that time have come to the town and area. One of numerous surfing spots spots in the area La Boca has become incredibly popular for the many days that the wave is functioning. Also the section of beach in front of our apartments has a very good wave for learning to surf. As a matter of fact so good we have a surf school below on our property.

In he summer La Boca is a very popular beach. It fills with beach goers.

Horseback riding, Bird Watching, Walking all are done at La Boca.

Do yourself a favor and stay here for a month!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a month and wish we could have stayed two! This is a very homey, comfortable, spacious apartment with killer views of the surf below. The 24/7 sound of the breaking waves and sea birds is to die for. Mark, the owner, is gracious and friendly. Buses to Vina del Mar (and thence to Valparaiso) are two blocks away and run about every five minutes. The area feels very safe. The compound itself is secured by a high wall and locking gate, plus there is a second locking gate--which we never bothered to lock--before you even get to the apartment. We've been traveling non-stop for seven months and this was definitely the best apartment we've had.

Funky but comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This accommodation is funky but comfortable, it ain't the Ritz. The furniture is old but serviceable and the facility has all the ingredients to make your stay comfortable. The views are fantastic. Mike and his wife were extremely helpful and went out their way to make us comfortable.

Excellent Location, Excellent Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This place was everything we needed. It was quiet, private, and spacious. We especially loved the balcony and the sound of the ocean coming through the windows at night. Owners were fantastic and we are very happy we found this place. Will be coming back.

Just what we had hoped for!!

  • 4 of 5

The Crow's Nest is exactly as pictured, as is the view. You can even see Cerro Acangagua when the light is right. No need for air conditioning as the sea breeze takes care of that. The waves sing you to sleep at night and the gulls provide entertainment if you run out of things to do. The apt is comfortably furnished and the kitchen complete. Off street parking a plus as are the hosts, who were very friendly and helpful. The only negative is the beach, which is quite dirty.

Fortunately you don't see that from your Crow's Nest view.

Great View!!!

  • 5 of 5

Two friends and I spent 7 nights at the Beach House and really enjoyed it. The view from the balcony was spectacular. The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped with everything you would need. There are lots of restaurants within walking distance. Carlos and Isabell, who are the contacts, were very helpful even if there was a language barrier with 3 gringo's that didn't speak Spanish. We had a great experience and highly recommend this or one of the other apartments as a destination.
