Valparaíso is an experience and so is Valparaíso Experience. So much so that one is perpetually conflicted: venture out to explore the city? or stay in, savoring the panoramic vistas and taking advantage of creature comforts, including a balconied bedroom and a terrace suitable for dining al fresco—both with spectacular views, a more than serviceable kitchen, and walls studded with...

There's nothing to think about - stay at this place!!! Bart was so welcoming and gracious. He arranged transportation for us from Santiago, greeted us when we arrived, had a bottle of wine waiting for us and took the time to chat with us and give us some suggestions on what to do around the city. He'll recommend these restaurants... More

Great family of adults from New York thoroughly enjoyed their stay at one the Ecco Duplex Apartments in July 2014. It is a true pleasure to host such an appreciative group and make arrangements for arrival, during their stay and for departure. This is our concept of travel: enable a unique and highly recommendable Valparaiso Experience! Safe travels, hasta pronto!... More

I travel about half of the year, and in my experience there are two types of wonderful places you can find to stay at. The first type is a nice because of the place, the host, or the location. But, not all three. You would stay there again but you might not "hunt" it down to do so. The second... More

Cute little place with a great little garden patio! Great owners! Really good location but be ready for a short hike, worth it for the views though! Would use this apartment again and recommend it. Thanks for a really good stay!
