Overview

Concón 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. 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.

The apartment is situated such that the views toward the bay and mountains are spectacular. The ocean views are fantastic.

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.

La Boca beach and the Aconcagua river outlet and estuary are a short walk. The area has great surfing and other aquatic sports. There are horses for rent at the beach.

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 Vacation 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.

Perfect Location for Chilean Coast Exploration

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Chile and our first place to stay after landing in Santiago. It was a great learning experience to arrive in a country with little language skills and get out to Con Con via bus to Vina Del Mar and then a taxi to the Navigators Nook. The place was clean, secure and just as advertised. Mark the owner/manager arranged for our arrival and was extremely informative about the sights, sounds and history of Chile as well as the area. We loved the decks overlooking the beach and the short walk to the downtown Con Con area or to the Bus Station.

This location was away from the hustle and bustle of Vina Del Mar and Valparaiso, but close enough to catch the bus for a short, exhilarating and economical trips into those cities for exploration and shopping. We visited Pablo Neruda's house in Valparaiso as well as the museums and immersed ourselves in the Chilean Beach culture. We also shopped in Vina Del Mar and ate at many restaurants and bars with historical significance.

During our 8 day stay in the area we also ate at the local empanada establishments (Las Delicious for one) and some fine dining without taking a taxi.

We will definitely return to Chile and stay in the Navigators Nook and recommend that you do the same. Loved it.

Quiet surroundings and spectacular view

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental was exactly as shown and described in the website. The property was very clean, maintained and equipped with everything necessary for our visit. The owner was very helpful and provided lots of insider tips. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends and relatives. We enjoyed this nice little restaurant very close by and were able to get around using local transportation.

clean convenient location with a nice beach view

  • 4 of 5

We found the place clean and comfortable with a beautiful view of the beach. The kitchen was nice along with the extra bathroom.The town overall did not offer much concerning good restaurants and shopping, however the location of the apartment to other places made it worthwhile. The beach itself was okay but again offered water sports like surfing and a busy but relaxed atmosphere. The owner was great to deal with and very helpful.

Even better than the pics!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here and felt very comfortable and at home. Thanks Mark! The views from every room were just incredible and being lulled to sleep by the ocean every night was a dream. If we come back to Chile we will definitely stay here again!

Magnificent View of the Pacific

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at the Navigator's Nook for 4 nights upon arrival in Chile and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The suite was very comfortable and owner very helpful. The view of the ocean , the beach and mountains is outstanding. Markets, restaurants and lovely walks nearby. Used as a base to explore the region, including incredible drive into the Aconcagua Valley...you can actually see the America's highest peak from the Balcony although it is 70 km away in Argentina. Highly recommend this as a base for exploring the central coast and to just chill out comfortably.

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.
