Valparaiso Experience is indeed a wonderful experience. The apartments are beautiful, the view is stunning, the location great, but what makes it an outstanding experience is Bart (owner of the complex) and his family who are all in one: hosts, friends, tour guides, solution finders, local experts, and even short-time family. We stayed for two months and are definitely coming... More

This recently married couple did what others dream of, an extended honeymoon to Chile. They stayed for 2 months at two of our apartments, and time ran short! What a great experience, lovely guests, great travel partners, a true pleasure to host. Apart from enjoying time together, a glass of wine or two, and several asados, we even went surfing... More

Large apartment with spectacular view. Elegantly, tastefully furnished. Private and completely quiet. Owner as cordial and helpful as possible. Tripadvisor requires 200 characters in the review, but I don’t want to try to think up nonsense.

We chose this location for a couple of reasons: 1) another couple would be joining us for part of our two week stay. So, were happy to find a two bedroom, two bath apartment large enough. 2) the views from our private balcony were amazing. We grew to love Cerro Bellavista, it's certainly more quiet than Cerro Conception/Alege. We were... More

We had the privilege of staying at Valparaiso Experience last January and as there were 6 of us in our group from Australia, we were allocated 2 Ecco Duplex Apartments that overlooked Valparaiso City and the sea.

We live in Santiago and had friends from the U.S. visiting for a short time. We wanted to show them someplace special in Chile and decided a trip through Casablanca to Valparaiso would be an excellent option. We booked two Valpariaso Experience ECCO duplexes for the eight of us and had a wonderful time. The apartments are spacious, comfortable, and... More
