My wife, Sonia, and I are retired elementary school teachers. I was raised in the Pacific North West, while she was born and raised in Chile. We met while I was in the Peace Corps in Ecuador and she was a language instructor and cross cultural coordinator for the Peace Corps in Ponce, Puerto Rico. We married in Ventura, California and soon after were accepted in a Teacher Corps teacher preparation program in New Mexico. We currently live 6 months in Chile and 6 months in Salinas, California.

Bob and Sonia Lee purchased this house in 2006

Most of my wife's family lives in Concepcion, less than an hour from our home in Coliumo. We were attracted to this house because, like Salinas, it is near the ocean. In addition, Coliumo is a village, not a city. The peace and tranquility of the area gives it a special appeal.

There are so many to mention. We both love the garden. The house is surrounded by flower gardens, native plants and trees. Then there is the view from the bay windows or deck of the ocean. A special treat, nearly everyday, is eating lunch under the covered porch, with a breeze blowing off of the ocean and fishing boats passing our inlet. Sea birds add to the charm. This is truly the place to get away from it all; in the full knowledge that the attractions of the big city (Concepcion) are not far away.

MUY TRANQUILO

  • 5 of 5
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!!

Coliumo is comprised of 3 fishing villages along the coast and a farming community on the higher slopes of this lovely peninsula.

Our home is located in a residential community of professional families that live and work in Concepcion and spend their summers and weekends in these, their second homes.

The fishing fleet unload their catch nearly every day. The local restaurants serve a wide variety of seafood.

Coliumo represents peace and tranquility, while the attractions of a big city, are nearby.(40 minutes). Perhaps its greatest attraction is its people, friendly, anxious to be helpful, an ideal place to get away from it all.
