This apartment is located in the city center of Santa Cruz, Chile the heart of Colchagua Valley.
Use this apartment as your home base to explore the surrounding vineyards, cities, and restaurants. Vineyards within a 10 minute taxi or car ride include, Montes, Lapostolle, Montgrass, Vina Santa Cruz, Estampa, Los Vacos, and many others.
It is also a 3 minute walk to Casino Colchagua and the city plaza.
There are three supermarkets within 500 meters of the apartment. Our phone number is a United States recording service, but we are here living in Santa Cruz.
The neighborhood is very safe, and me and my wife lived in this apartment for two years before moving to a house nearby.
I have recently added wifi to the apartment.
Ian was a wonderful host and the colchagua wines are fabulous. Ian's flat is remarkable thanks Ian
We had a most enjoyable four-day stay at Ian's apartment, which is spacious, clean, comfortable,and well situated in Santa Cruz. Ian was a great help in making recommendations for restaurants and activities, and he was an excellent host for a one-day tour of the wine country. Very delightful experience!
Rarely in our many travels have we been as warmly greeted and looked after as we were by Ian and his lovely family. Our family of two adults and two kids felt like extended family after a very short time and all of our requests were handled quickly and efficiently. Especially not to miss is a day or two out with Ian to see the vignobles or the coast. He is pleasant , knowledgeable, and generous, and a day out with him in his car are very pleasant experiences. He is well known and liked in the wine community.
The apartment remained cool in some very hot conditions and is centrally located in the town. We asked Ian for some missing items in the kitchen which it took him all of five minutes to ameliorate by going to a shop nearby. It is on a main thoroughfare which gives it a great location. There might be a bit of a noise factor for those who are late sleepers, but it was not a major issue. Ian is in the process of constantly upgrading what was his family's apartment until it grew to four beautiful little girls.
In short, a most pleasant experience. Looking forward to our next visit. Clark and Agnes Eide
Un sejour fantastique dans cette belle region. Nous avons beaucoup aime Santa Cruz car idealement localise pour visiter la Cote, les vignobles, et les parcs. L'apartement est en centre ville, tres pratique pour faire les courses et aller boire son cafe, ou acheter une glace. L'apartement est tres fonctionnel, et reste frais meme lors de journees tres chaudes. Ian est tres chaleureux et serviable, il nous a rendu plusieurs services, et nous avons apprecie les deux journees a visiter les vignobles et Pichilemu en sa companie. Nous avons eu (email hidden) famille.
We had a great stay at Ian's apartment- it's very clean and spacious with a nice "lived-in" feel. Photos give an accurate impression.
Ian himself is a great host - we took him up on his wine tour and had a fantastic time. Ian takes care of the driving, bookings and organizes the day - he's friends with many people at the local wineries, knows a fair bit about the local industry/history, and frankly is just fun to hang out with. If you're going down to Santa Cruz for the wines, you should definitely plan to spend a day with him!
Great location, shopping, supermarket etc all close by.
Beds are comfortable and bedrooms have plenty of space.
Lounge/dining area also reasonably spacious.
Only negative is no stereo or radio and only the most basic of cooking facilities.
However, Ian is very accommodating and genuinely keen to help with anything you might need.
We employed Ian as a driver/guide to tour local wineries, he was fantastic and got us into places we would never have done without him. Thanks Ian - fantastic service.
My husband and I travelled to Chile for our honeymoon last month and stayed in Ian's apartment while we were in Santa Cruz. Ian was a great host and we enjoyed our stay in his apartment. It was clean and as he described, convenient to local stores and restaurants. Its walking distance from the town's square and we would love to return and stay with him again.
A unique apartment just a few blocks from everything, the bus station, the town plaza, restaurants, and even the host, Ian. He is a wonderful source of local information, an English-speaking ex-Californian who has been in the area for years. A great tour guide, as he took us on a day tour of wineries and farms. The apartment is three good sized bedrooms, a full kitchen, one bathroom, quiet on a side street. Internet shop a block away, though it was closed on Sunday as was most of the town. He has recently started to rent the unit as he and his family used to live in it, and is continuing to improve it as a rental. Recommend it, and Ian as a guide.
We made a last minute reservation and Ian responded within two minutes. When we arrived in town he met us and led us to the apartment. He even recommended a nice restaurant in a vineyard and rode with me to the location to make sure I knew where it was. The apartment was nicely furnished and comfortable. It was a good experience. I can recommend staying there.
This is a simple apartment in a great location right near the centre of town and easy walking distance to the bus terminal. The host Ian was one of the highlights for the trip. He provided us an intro to the town, where to eat, location of nearby Internet cafes and was always quickly available for any questions etc. We also took Ian up on his offer to go horse riding through his family property as well as arranging a driver to visit the nearby wineries - both trips of which are highly recommended!
This apartment was an excellent value for this area. We were two couples traveling together and the 3 bedrooms gave us plenty of room. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom very spacious, and kitchen atiqate. We were able to base from the apartment and visit most of the wineries in the area. Ian went above and beyond to help us. He arranged many of the wine tastings and tours. For a small extra cost he even drove us, a big help when you don't know the area and are trying every wine you can! Ian arranged a horse ride up into the hills offering us breath taking views of the entire valley, a highlight of our trip. All in all I can't say enough good things about our host and time in Santa Cruz. We feel we not only saved money over the over priced tourist hotels but got a much better local experience.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
