Overview

Vina Del Mar Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 3-4.

This new apartment sits right on the coast of Chile in the town of Con Con. It has complete and unobstructed views of the ocean just off the deck. The Bay of Con Con, the Aconcagua river and the coastal mountains can all be seen. Access to and from the area either in your own car or by public transportation is quick and easy.

Completely gutted and rebuilt in 2009 using the best of materials. It was built to withstand seismic activity and built well above the Tsunami line. It was put to the test two weeks after completion with the earthquake and Tsunami had on 27 February 2010 and the apartment had zero damage. All window are vinyl double pane with UV protection. Apartment is very well insulated, with a northern exposure taking advantage of passive solar energy that keeps it cool in summer and much warmer in winter then most buildings here. Apartment is very clean and secure.

It has a very cozy woody feeling and the views of the ocean are intimate and unique. There are very few apartments in the area like this one.

Con Con has been a small fishing village since it's foundation in 1542. It has grown in the past years to become a small city yet it still maintains it's small town attitude and style in most areas. There are many possibilities for practicing different sports or going on different outings. Due to it's location it has access to the whole coast, the inland agricultural sector, and the Coastal and Andes Mountains. All within a days reach or less.

We are close to two major wine growing areas. The Casablanca Valley and the Aconcagua Valley. Casablanca has numerous wineries and restaurants for tasting and grommet food.

There are a tremendous amount of restaurants in Con Con from which to choose. Being a coastal town the majority of restaurants specialize in seafood.

Con Con is 20 min to half hour from Vina Del Mar and Valparaiso is on the other side of Vina, making it an easy trip into either one of those big cities either by car or bus.

Apartment rents as a Vacartion Rental. It can also be rented for longer term. Please inquire for prices and information.

The apartment is part of a greater complex of five existing apartments called Con Con Bay. There is a manager / maintenance man for the units.

Great stay in calm Concon

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay in Concon. The apartment was exactly as pictured, and conveniently located to the beach, a supermarket, and restaurants -- while still being removed enough from the overcrowded Vina del Mar to provide a relaxing time. Mark and his family were very helpful in giving us advice about things to do during our stay. The two balconies with views of the beach were perfect! We stopped at a few wineries in the Casablanca Valley region on the way back to Santiago, which I highly recommend as well.

Cheers

Wonderful beach setting

  • 4 of 5
We had a delightful time at the Navigators look. It has a splendid beach view, is well furnished and very clean, everything worked well, and we loved the rustic knotty pine walls. It's a great area at the beach, a couple of blocks from a lot of restaurants which are down the hill. When we first got there we didn't have a car, and took buses (cheap and frequent) and taxis. ($30.00 to Vina). We rented a car and felt much more mobile. The coast road between Concon and Valparaiso is beautiful, and there are nice beaches and very good restaurants and its a great beach area. We were there in mid November which is fairly early spring. By summer I would imagine wall to wall people and traffic on the road.

Carlos and Isabella were helpful, friendly kind cheerful and attentive.

We enjoyed the apartment and would stay there again.

Sea side paradise

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at some other nice places in Argentina on our trip, but our stay at the Navigators Nook in Con con Chile was the highlight of our trip. We hope to stay there again someday, and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

We arrived late at night, and the owner had arranged for his property manager to pick up up from the airport for a reasonable fee. We speak almost no spanish and the property manager speaks almost no english but he and his wife still did a great job of explaining the area to us and giving us recommendations. The apartment has incredible views from both floors, and when you open the sliding doors even a crack you can hear the waves crashing below, which was very relaxing. Our bed was very comfortable, and the kitchen was stocked with any pots, pans, plates, appliances etc. you might need. The wifi worked great, and we didn't try the TV. The balconies are very private. A Hairdryer and iron were provided. The location is perfect... Just a couple minutes walk down to hill to the beach strip, which has a bank, some produce stores, restaurants, an ice cream shop, and some surf schools. From there you can catch a bus that goes south along the ocean and will let you off at any beach, or anywhere else for that matter, between Con con and Vina del Mar. It only costs about 75 cents US (but you pay in pesos). Renaca is the next major town south and had a very nice beach. If you want to go to Valparaiso I think you can switch buses in Vina del Mar, but we switched to the subway there instead. Just as there as buses that follow the water, there are buses that use an inland route between Con con and Renaca that you can catch a block uphill (east) from the apartment, and it will take you to the Santa Isabel larger supermarket in Con con. Secreto restaurant is a very short walk away and was our favourite, but Amor y Sazon was also very good and is even closer.

The only thing they might be able to improve is the consistency of the hot water. There were 2 occasions where it got hot, and then ran cold for several minutes before getting hot again. It's not so bad it your expecting it and know that it will definitely get hot again, so just be patient. It definitely wasn't enough to put us off staying there again.

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is exactly how it looks in the photos. The views are spectacular and don't disappoint. The beach is a quick 5 minute walk down a steepish hill, but be warned the water is quite chilly. Concon is about 20 minutes north of Vina del Mar, but it's not as busy and crowded so it's a nice seclusion. There is a park with a playground about 5 minute walk up the hill, and buses that can easily take you to Vina and Valparaiso very close for about $1. The owner, Mark, and his caretaker, Carlos, are super responsive and helpful. Upon request, they provided beach towels, power adapters and other things to make the stay more comfortable. They were also able to arrange for transfers from Valparaiso or Santiago, which helped make everything easier. They will work with you to make your stay a nice one.

One of our favorite activities there was watching the activity on the beach. There are always surfers trying to catch a wave, seagulls and pelicans trying to catch fish.

We didn't have a car and we managed. It would be nice to have a car to go to Zapallar or exploring, but you don't really need it if you will stay in Concon, Vina or Valparaiso.

The sound of the surf

  • 4 of 5
Navigator's Nook at ConCon Bay Apartments was where we stayed for 6 nights at the beginning of 7 weeks travelling around Chile and it was the ideal start. The apartment was well equipped and being on 2 levels gave a nice feeling of space. Website photos accurately reflected it, with slightly different furniture. All very clean & tidy however bed linen & towels had seen better days. Good location being an easy 5 min walk down the hill to the beach & restaurants. We had some nice walks along the beach in the mornings watching the wading birds on the shore. The beach did get very busy in the afternoons with families and made for some great people watching!
We ate some delicious fish & seafood in local restaurants especially the restaurant just up the hill which has a lovely terrace and where we had a very nice lunch.
The balcony on each level gave great views of the Pacific and waking to the sound of the surf below was very pleasant. I don't know what the other apartments are like but I would be happy to recommend Navigator's Nook to friends and family
ConCon is a very Chilean resort so while there were one or two places where they spoke English, it is best if you can speak at least basic Spanish.

Cozy Apartment, Fantastic View

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I stayed here to get out of the big city of Santiago for a weekend and relax in the sand and sun. We ended up spending more time hanging out in the apartment than on the beach itself, because of how comfortable, clean, and lovely it was. You can hear (and see) the waves crashing from almost any spot in the apartment, whether you're lying on the bed, hanging out in the living room, having breakfast at the little kitchen table, or a beer out on the balcony. When we did venture out, we got to ride horses on the beach for the equivalent of just $5 for half an hour. It was a lovely, relaxing weekend; just what we needed.

La Boca

Con Con meaning Water Water in the indigenous language is bordered by the Pacific Ocean and the Aconcagua River. The apartments are located in Old Con Con which is the more bohemian area with small businesses and restaurants located through out the neighborhood.

The closest beach is named La Boca because the north end of the beach is the mouth of the Aconcagua River. The neighborhood next to the beach and river also called La Boca. This area is famous for it's Empanadas with many locals offering many varieties. There are also numerous restaurants there offering a variety of food. Small markets with fresh fruit and fish available.

Walking up Calle Siete you pass a beautiful square with numerous trees, grassy areas and some play structures. Further up at Calle Santa Margarita is another area with small markets selling fresh bread (Carminsita) and fruit stands. The local farmers market takes place on Wednesday and Saturday mornings at the far end of Calle Siete.
