Beautiful & charming large vacation house, lots of rooms, fully equipped kitchen, ideal for large families or several friends. 2 large bedrooms in suite, 2 additional bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, decks, barbecue and patio. Nice garden & views. Centrally located, beaches, park, cafes, restaurants, markets all within walking distance (but no noise). Outside shower for after sea bathing.

The space

Cachagua is a GREAT beach place about 2 hours by car from Santiago,its surroundings just gorgeous. Just relax or enjoy outdoor activities close by: seaside golf courses, tennis, horseback riding, cycling, trekking, surfing, great seafood and above all, quietness and tranquility year round, except for the high summer season or long weekends.

Long beach is at walking distance (5 min) or by car (2 min), water is normally fairly cold, surfers will have some good swells either here or at nearby Maitencillo at 10 minutes by car. Outdoors shower provided in the patio for after sea baths or surfers, hot water of course.

House is walking distance (really) close to beaches, local square, shops, restaurants and cafeterias in Cachagua. Local donkey rides for small kids in the local square close by is part of the local folklore.

Both Cachagua and nearby Zapallar are the most exclusive upscale beach places in Chile. Enjoy walking long (3.5 km) beach of Cachagua or sunbathe (or bathe if adventurous) in secluded and charming Las Cujas beach, or walk the 4-5 km seaside trail alongside breathtaking Pacific coastline between Cachagua and Zapallar.

Cachagua is surrounded by Cordillera de la Costa hills with lush green vegetation year round. Trails for walking, horse or bike riding in these hills nearby are part of the normal activities.

Last but not least local living Katy can eventually be hired as housemaid if needed.

p.s. In high summer season (Dec 28 - Mar 1) normally not available for short term, i.e. less than 2 weeks rental.

Access to all of the house, including all rooms, garden, decks and patios.

Off limits only the locked warehouse in the garage, 2 locked closets in the guests rooms (owner clothes and stuff) and 1 locked pantry outside kitchen, other one available for guest use.

We enjoy our beach house as much as you probably will and we like to keep it nice and tidy.

There are a number of remote controls for different TV's, stereos, DVD player, etc. Please do not remove them or the cables, from their original location.

Ensure to recycle glass and plastic bottles (there are several places around town for it), and keep nature as pristine as you find it.

Exercise extreme care when using the slow combustion fireplaces, either the main one in the living room or the smaller one in the family room. Also the gas stoves uses catalytic (green bottles), please be sure if replacing them. Safety comes FIRST !!!.

Our stay was perfect. The house is very cosy and spacious, walking distance to the service area of the town, and the beach. All directions to make everything work at the house were right and precise, and the agile help of Kathy made everything even better.

This house was just perfect for us (two families with young children), and was a fun place to stay. Four comfortable bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen (with dishwasher!), and everything was clean and in perfect working order. The house is in a great location, within close walking distance to the cove, playground, restaurants and a small grocery store. The couple who checked us in was also extremely helpful and communication was very smooth.

We spent a wonderful time with my family at Rafaels house. Beautiful House, walking distance to Cachagua beach, restaurants and grocery. The house is in perfect conditions, very luminous, spacious and is even prettier than the pictures publicated.

I would recommend this home in Cachagua to other travelers (particularly those traveling from abroad). Rafael was responsive and accomodating. The small coastal community where the home is located is perfect for families or groups. Upscale but accessible. The community is small, well groomed and primarily residential - with some small storefronts within walking distance for staples and coffee/pizza and easy access to the beach on foot. The beach is clean with soft sand, seashells, and surfable/family friendly waves. The home itself feels like a cabin, with large cedar? trunks running along rooflines and stairwells. The garden a dreamy little oasis with a small lawn, lush landscaping, outdoor shower, and large deck off the back with comfortable outdoor seating /dining spaces and lovely views. The home's interior is comfortable but not fussy and filled with books, eclectic decorative items, and lots of spaces to stow away and read, work on a puzzle, etc. First bedroom has a large double bed. Second bedroom two twins with a third trundle available below. Third bedroom large double with twin/trundle. And the 4th bedroom, a master with large Queen/ensuite bath and gorgeous ocean view. Super comfortable and a pleasant, do-able day drive from Santiago, a lovely experience overall.

We had a wonderful time in Rafael´s house. We went for a retreat with teachers from ChACE (Alliance for Catholic Education Chile Program) from the University of Notre Dame. The house worked out perfect for our needs. We felt at home in the house. It is very spatious, cozy, with good natural light, a nice garden, very well located to access the beach, but at the same time is simple and it feels like a family house. Coordination with Rafael and Mario was very easy. We have rented other large houses in the area for the same purpose in previous years, however this one is my favorite.

The house was just like described in airbnb ad really "spacious and cozy ". Everything was perfect! Lots of space for everyone . Great BBQ, so even though is winter around here we enjoyed with friends the warm sun and the sea breeze. Really well equipped, it has everything we needed to make our family winter vacation perfect. Cathy and Mario ( the cleaning lady and her husband) were always reachable and able to help! Rafael was also very nice and warm. We enjoyed and appreciate the champagne bottle that was left very cold for our welcome!!! Cachagua is a great destination and the house has everything we needed! We will strongly recommend the house, we are looking froward to come back!

Outdoors, sports oriented active both myself and my family.

I have traveled extensively across the globe, both for work and leisure, but will always enjoy new places, cultures and different people.

It is always nice to know you can stay in a place that is kept in top condition and used by the owner and family.

I own 2 beautiful beach properties which will be for sure a great experience for anyone traveling for these whereabouts.

The Cachagua listing is a charming and spacious house in the up most scale and trendy beach in Chile, with plenty of opportunities for the active and sports oriented traveler. You will find a nice setting, great decks and garden and always a small surprise in the fridge for guests.

The Puertecillo listing is a hidden place TOTALLY of the beaten track, and heavily oriented for adventurous people, surfers from around the globe will know about it...
