Coliumo is a lovely area, perfect for relaxing and getting away from it all. The owners of this beautiful, beachfront home were exceptionally helpful from the beginning of our stay until the end! They provided information about the area and even arranged for our transportation from Concepcion to Coliumo and, above and beyond, had their wonderful relatives personally escort us! It took the worry out of travelling with kids - we are a family of 5. Bob and Sonia took it upon themselves to contact the principal of the local school paving the way for our 3 kids to have the wonderful experience of attending classes for a couple of weeks! Griselda, the caretaker of the property, lives nearby and was a wealth of information and attended to any need we had. Many mornings were spent on the deck with a cup of coffee in hand watching the fishing boats pass back and forth. Afternoons were often spent watching the surfers practicing on the waves. The house is situated so that our kids could build sandcastles on the beach while we supervised, while barbequing, from the deck! There are some secluded bays accessible by walking trails only minutes away where nesting seagulls keep watch from their cliff top perches. Tiendas just a few hundred metres away kept us in stock with bread, milk, eggs, wine, beer etc. and the bus to Tome runs every half hour and drops passengers just across the street from a good grocery store that has anything else you might need. We were sad to leave Coliumo at the end of our month long stay and we hope that one day our travels may bring us back to this tranquilo spot. Recommend!!
