Recent Chile reviews

  • Pat (Virginia, USA)

    "We agree with the other positive reviews already provided. The views of the Andes are superb! It is a convenient location and the area is filled with wonderful restaurants and bars. It is within walking distance of the wonderful city park with a funicular that goes to the top with incredible views of the city. It is close to the subway system and access to the sights of Santiago. Valerie was very helpful. Great stay. We would come back!"

  • Wonderful location, fully equipped

    "I can't think of a better location! The apartment is very nice and new, adjacent to the subway connecting you to the main tourist points. Restaurants, grocery stores, etc on the same block. Laundry room in the building is very convenient. Mauricio and his agent Isabel made everything a breeze. I wouldn't stay anywhere else."

  • Absolutely First-Rate

    "A family of three adults, we spent a week in December 2014 in this charming chalet-style house. The description, photographs, specifications, and reviews from other guests are all accurate and don't need repeating here. The place is roomy and very comfortable, everything works and is as uptodate as can be given that it is in a remote Chilean location. The decor is warm and homey, the kitchen more than fully equipped, and the beds very comfortable. The owner was lodging in the nearby cabin during our stay, and acted as an attentive host, including help with a balky lock, operation of the hot tub, and even to laying fires in the stove and fireplace. This not your run-of-the-mill sterile, anonymous, timeshare type of rental. We are completely satisfied with our stay and highly recommend the House of Divine Views. Foxes, hawks and caracaras visit regularly, in pairs, and they are partial to hot dogs - bring a generous supply!"

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
