About Robby Swift

Professional Windsurfer from the UK. Lived in Hawaii for 10 years and now trying to split my time between Hawaii and Chile to take best advantage of the seasonal wave conditions.

Robby Swift purchased this house in 2009

Why Robby Swift chose Chile

I went to Matanzas for a 10 day travel story to take photos for magazines. My brother and I surfed and windsurfed 10 of the best days of our lives and couldn't leave without buying a plot of land. We built the house over the next year and have come to love it so much that we both spend as much time as possible there and are always sad to leave. Initially we were just overawed by the conditions and hardly noticed the amazing beauty of the place, but now we have spent more time there, we cannot believe that we were fortunate enough to build a home in such a stunning place. The views are simply breathtaking, the people are incredibly friendly and the food and drink are amazing.

What makes this house unique

Some of the best waves I have ever experienced anywhere in the world. There are hardly any people in the water, especially during the week and everyone we come across is extremely friendly. You can eat delicious food in the restaurant at the Hotel Surazo and the quiet countryside and beaches let you feel like you are completely separated from your hectic life while you are there.

Beautiful house and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Robby's house. There were 3 couples and an 8 month old baby. Everyone had their own space and bathrooms which was fantastic. The house is very well equipped and worth every penny! The owner communicated quickly and even provided great recommendations for the area. The on site man, Luis, was also very helpful and friendly. He had the wonderful hot tub ready for us when we arrived. Can't recommend this place enough! We'll be back!

Magnificent Views

  • 5 of 5

The house was easy to locate with great directions given and we were very impressed with the view as well as, the tranquility. We stayed here with another family and had 5 children ranging from 7-13 years. The kids were able to explore safely and it was an easy walk down to the beach. Our stay was super relaxing and I enjoyed the aesthetics of the house - open plan and comfortable. It was my first time using this website (VRBO) and I found the process very easy. The communication from the owner was also prompt and supportive. I would recommend Matanzas as a place to visit and of course, this house. Regards and happy travels!

An Exceptional Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Easy drive from Santiago, and you really have a sense of getting away from it all. A beautiful spot to kick back, cook in or dine out, beach walks, open spaces with plenty of light, ocean breezes, and exceptional views over the village, beach and sea. A sophisticated house but not too precious to really relax and enjoy, and nicely equipped. A nice sense of security in a small gated community, yet quiet and private. Excellent pre-visit communications with the owner who answered all our queries and was very supportive, plus a responsive local support system for any questions or needs during our stay. A couple of nice tiendas in town to supply most basic needs. You can book this house with confidence - we're already planning to return next year.

Matanzas Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Great location, great house set up for gringos (no Chileno BS, this house is fully equipped and very civilized), super comfortable beds with nice bedding, great view, open kitchen and plenty of lounging space indoor and out. Spectacular region with excellent food and wine, locally sourced, a gourmet's dream.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

I live in Chile and have traveled all over the country. This house is the best rental I have stayed in so far. It is so comfortable and well-appointed. Heated hot tub is great -- keeps kids in the pool for much longer than they normally are in Chile. Great location above the beach but easy to get down to water. Love, love, love this place.
