  • A great place to stay in Santiago

    "The apartment was perfect for exploring Santiago. It was close to everything, Plaza des Aramas, Central Market, Metro, restaurants and shopping. The apartment was well maintained clean, compact and very comfortable. The owners were very helpful in answering all of our questions and making helpful suggestions. I would highly recommend this property."

  • great location, just what we needed

    "Our family of 5 enjoyed our 4 night stay over new year very much. The apartment is well appointed, had all we needed and was in an excellent proximity to shops, restaurants and beaches. The pool on the beach was a huge bonus!"

  • comfy respite

    "This was a nice, quiet getaway from Santiago and near a national park with good hikes. Natasha was easy to communicate with, flexible, and helpful but in no way intrusive. We used the self-service apartment and enjoyed the fall avacados, grapes and parsimmons. All were delicious. We had our 6 year old daughter along, who is not a pet person, but she loved the dogs. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet getaway, some nice hikes, or a stay a bit away from Vina or Valpariaso. There is not much to do in the town of Lemeche, itself, but still a few good resturants, a nice town square/plaza, and friendly folk."

  • Our Favorite Place!

    "We stayed with Gloria and Hector 2 nights and 2 days, and that was the most enjoyable thing we did in the 6 weeks we spent roaming around Chile and Argentina. They are wonderful people. They picked us up at the airport in Santiago, served us a delicious late dinner with pisco sours, and then toured us around for the next 2 days before delivering us to our ship for a cruise. There is an extra charge for the pick-up and touring. The price they quote on the site included scrumptious breakfasts, picnic lunches and mouth-watering dinners, always preceded by their incredible pisco sours. Our bedroom was airy and spacious and the bed sooo comfortable, even in the simple home that Hector built out in the wine country. We had a semi-private bath that we shared with the couple we traveled with. We hope to maintain the friendship, as I would hate lose contact with this special couple. We heartily recommend their place! Make time to stay there. You won't regret it! Marilyn and Paul Lisowski"

Chile Travel Tips

Getting to Chile Vacation Rentals

The main travel hub in Chile is the capital city of Santiago. The national Chilean carrier is the primary airline that operates into Santiago and provides regional and domestic connections within South America. If you are traveling from further afield, such as North America or Europe, you will possibly need to route via Sao Paolo or Buenos Aires before getting a connection on to Santiago. If you are traveling domestically within Chile, you may consider looking into the air passes that are offered from time to time by the airlines. These passes provide you with a far more affordable way to get around rather than purchasing point-to-point flights.

Chile Travel Attractions and Activities

Chile runs almost the full length of the western coast of South America. The landscape is dominated by the Andes Mountains and beautiful coastline. With these natural attractions, there are many outdoor recreational activities available for visitors.

The ski resorts in Chile are ranked as some of the best in the world. National ski teams from Europe and North America frequently spend their summer training months in Chile to hone their skills. There are a vast number of resorts. Some of the most popular are located just a short drive from Santiago. Smaller resorts can be found all the way down to Patagonia and very popular with the locals.

Trekking and mountaineering are other popular pastimes. Climbing in the Andes can be challenging and very technical in parts. Patagonia is well known for its excellent routes and climbers travel from all over the world to test their skills on the terrain. It is not a place for inexperienced mountaineers or climbers. The terrain and the climate are harsh and mistakes can be fatal. Chile has a well-established mountain rescue organization that provides support to climbers if they run into trouble. When trekking, ensure you have their number handy so you can get in touch with them if needed.

If you enjoy water sports, a great excursion is to go sea kayaking along the coast. See dolphins and possibly even whales in season. The coastline is spectacularly beautiful and when kayaking, you can get up close to birds, seals and other marine life.

If you enjoy culture and history, there are many museums to visit in Santiago and other major cities. While Chile once had many beautiful building displaying colonial architecture, many have been damaged or destroyed by the earthquakes that frequently rock the country.

Best Time of Year to Visit Chile Vacation Houses

If you plan to go skiing or mountaineering, the best time of year to visit is during the colder winter months. The winter season starts in May and snowfalls are usually consistent enough for the ski resorts to open in early June. The ski season typically runs through August or September, depending on snowfall and temperatures. If you want to enjoy the coastline and many beautiful beaches, the ideal time to visit would be during the warmer summer months which run from October through April.

Vina del Mar Vacation Rentals in Chile

Vina del Mar is Chile’s fourth largest city and located in the province of Valparaiso. It is known as one of the country’s premiere beach destinations. Many tourists, both local and foreign, flock here each year to enjoy the sunshine and wide variety of water sports available. There is an annual music festival that takes place which attracts many visitors. The casino is another of the city's major draws. It is built in art deco style and surrounded by beautiful gardens.
