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.
We will pass you a key to the apartment upon your arrival. All we ask is that you return the apartment in the condition that you found it.

As the other reviews had stated, Ian was a very hospitable host and we greatly appreciate all that he did to make our experience in Santa Cruz a memorable one. The dining room room was very comfortable for visiting and the bathroom was spacious. Parking was adequate and although the apartment is located on a busy street, Ian was instrumental in assisting us get in and out with ease. The beds were all very comfortable and sheets and blankets were more than adequate.
We spent 10 nights in Ian's apartment in Santa Cruz. The apartment itself was spacious and comfortable. The kitchen has the basics but no more than that. (Although 'basics' in Santa Cruz means at least six wine glasses.) Our host, Ian, was great. He made sure there was someone to meet us at the bus station and help us find the apartment. He helped us to plan a few activities during our stay, including taking us horseback riding, which was a highlight for all of us. Since we were traveling with little ones, it was fun to spend time with Ian and his girls, including swimming in their family pool and visiting the 'bouncy houses' with them. He checked in with us several times during our stay just to see if we needed anything. It was wonderful having such and kind and considerate host!
OMG, I can't possibly say enough good things about Ian in only 500 words. When we arrived we called Ian and he met us and took us right to the apartment. The apartment is exactly as pictured. It is above their family run grocery store. The location is perfect for this great town. Just a block from the main square. Very close by are the casino and a museum. The best part about staying here is having Ian and his lovely wife taking care of us. Not only did Ian make reservations for us at really lovely vineyards, he personally made sure that we had transportation to and from everywhere we went. On one of our days the taxi cancelled and Ian personally drove us everywhere the whole day. Going back and forth between his other businesses. WHAT GREAT SERVICE!!! He also arranged an unforgettable horseback ride through the family's own property with himself and one of the family's own farm and ranch managers to help us on the horses, we went to a great spot overlooking the entire valley. At the overlook he provided two bottles of the family's own reserve of wine they produce, cheese, meat, crackers, bottled water. A private tour of their property and personal service. This was the highlight of my trip to Chile. The town of Santa Cruz is very up and coming. This is a great value now but I bet in 5 years this town will be very upscale. Get here now if at all possible. There is plenty to do and very reasonable. The food in the restaurants is outstanding (we came for the food and wine and were surprised by everything else we could do). When we left, Ian printed out of maps of how to get to Santiago and pick up the hop on and hop off bus tour and then get to the airport. Ian is very personable and cares a great deal about his guests. Make your reservation now, when word gets out this place will never be vacant.
We had a great time at Ian’s house! It’s very neat, comfortable and the location is great. Another very positive thing was that he kindly suggested great wineries for us to go and restaurants to eat. I strongly recommend it!
Ian was the ideal person to come in contact with in Colchagua. His apartment was amazing location 1 block from the central bus station and 3 blocks from the central plaza. He also is completely knowledgeable of the area, knows all the best wineries and restaurants, can arrange low cost taxi rides, and is more than happy to chaffeur you around for a more than reasonable fee with advanced notice. I had a great experience in Chilean wine country thanks to this AirBnB contact.
The apartment was very spacious and in a great location right in the center of Santa Cruz. There is a major grocery store literally around the corner. Ian responded almost immediately to all questions leading up to our stay as well as during it.
Ian is the reason why I actually prefer to rent houses than staying in a hotel. He is a great host, made everything he could to made our stay as perfect as it can be.Great place, near the city center, supermarkets and everything else. The house is very good and well equipped. If you are going to visit the wineries in the valley I would really recommend this place.
I am an American citizen married to a Chilean woman. We live and work in Santa Cruz, Chile. We have local business here, and also have many ties to the tourism industry. I have four children. Our home is about 250 meters from the apartment, so we will be able to assist if there are any complications.
