Prepare to be enchanted! Imagine yourself high on a cliff with the Pacific Ocean stretching out before you as far as you can see. Below on one side is Playa Cau Cau, a pristine crescent beach, untouched in its natural beauty and protected by cliffs and forests. On the other side is another crescent beach crowded with small wooden fishing boats and rows of restaurants serving the freshest sea food in the world. Here lies the small traditional Chilean fishing village of Horcon with its colorful houses climbing the hillsides above. This is the home of fishermen, artists and craftsmen whose way of life has not changed for generations, and whose traditions are as old as Chile itself. Welcome to paradise - a magical place like no other!
A MAGICAL PLACE LIKE NO OTHER!: In the mornings, sit on the terrace with your coffee and watch the small wooden fishing boats go out to sea. Take the cable car down to the secluded beach for a stroll or a swim. Enjoy the condominium amenities and walk the beautifully landscaped grounds and winding trails with their breathtaking ocean views. In the evenings, grill your supper on the spacious terrace while watching the most beautiful ocean sunsets imaginable.
In addition to the endless wonders of the natural scenery and spectacular views, the condominium community offers many amenities: community gates with 24 hour security, thatched-roof clubhouse with free WiFi, a well equipped children’s playground, large outdoor pool, gymnasium complete with jacuzzi and sauna, outdoor picnic area with charcoal grills, plus tennis courts and a soccer field.

AREA ATTRACTIONS: If you get the urge to go mall shopping or have a night of casino fun, Vina del Mar is only a short 35 minute drive via the winding coastal road through some of the most spectacular scenery imaginable. Vina is Santiago’s playground and has all the amenities of a modern coastal city with shopping, dining, parks and beaches.
Add another 15 minutes and you are in the historical and enchanting port city of Valparaiso, a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site. Today the city is experiencing a rebirth with the glorious mansions of old being restored, and gourmet restaurants sprouting up everywhere throughout the city. With a terrain much like that of San Francisco, multicolored homes and Victorian mansions cling to sheer cliffs and shelter a maze of narrow cobblestone passageways that are like walking back through time. Valparaíso has spawned generations of international poets, writers, and artists who have found inspiration in the city, including the Nobel Prize-winning poet Pablo Neruda.
Located only 35 minutes north of Vina del Mar (but without Vina's traffic congestion and beach crowds), it's easy to take occasional day trips into Vina via the scenic coastal road for mall shopping, sightseeing, casino fun and fine dining. And don't forget to visit the world heritage city of Valparaiso with its historic buildings, monuments, huge wall murals, and the old city sections accessible by cable elevators. After your day of shopping, return to the tranquility, beauty and spectacular scenery of Cau Cau Beach.
