“Bright sea views by day, dazzling city lights scenes by night”
Reviewed 4 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

City lights follow the boats at sea. Up on Bellavista hill, from all the windows are picturesque views of the city and ocean and then beautiful night scenes of Valparaiso after sunset. The deck is perfect for enjoying morning espressos with a view. Inside are warm oak wood floors and wood beams, white linens and cotton bedding, and a granite kitchen with a good stove and Krups espresso machine. We had some very lazy mornings starting with waking up in a comfortable bed to stunning views. This home away from home won a place in our hearts forever.

Thank you for this beautiful, poetic description of your Valparaiso Experience. This family of 4 initially booked for a week, enjoying so much they extended their stay, and extended again to a total of 3 weeks, until their return date back to the US. The longer you stay, the better it gets. You have your home in Valparaiso dear travel friends, hasta pronto!

“Best of Valpo”
Reviewed 13 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

I'm not sure you can get more accommodating than Bart and his property. It's perfectly located. The information Bart gives for the area is extremely comprehensive. The views are amazing. He's worked very hard at making the property what it is, and it's amazing. If you want to feel welcome and comfortable this is the place. Truly amazing.

“Perched on Bellavista Hill”
Reviewed 10 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

An oasis of comfort in a very colourful city. Perfectly located 4 min from downtown and accessible by Unesco heritage protected 1911 funicular (Ascensor Espiritu Santo). The Ecco apartments are perched on Cerro Bellavista. A quiet, historical and beautiful neighbourhood. The Pablo Neruda (La Sebastiana) is very close and the houses, plaza and murals on the hill make up the Museo al Cielo Abierto. In other words Valparaiso Experience has a spectacular location.
Our corner apt Ecco# 4 was perfect for 2 couples. We loved the exterior deck and household amenities. Bart is an efficient and charming host with a comprehensive grasp of what makes a valparaiso vacation unforgettable. Highly recommended.

“An experience”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Valparaiso is an experience in and of its self. As my friend put it, every picture he took tells a story. The Valparaiso Experience housing fits in perfectly to this profile. It is situated on a hill, but if you never wander the hills, you will never see the real Valparaiso. And its truly beautiful, fascinating and historic. So much character.

The apartments at this complex are lovely. We ended up upgrading to an Ecco room and highly recommend this. Recently done with very lovely fixtures.

The owner Bart will become your best friend. Very accessible, informative and accommodating.

Make sure you go to Pablo Nerudas house. One of the most interesting experiences I've ever had. And if you go down the hill there are several great restaurants at Victoria's Square. Overall, fab location, kind hospitality, comfortable arrangements and great views.

A highly worthwhile stay/experience.

But ask Bart for a tutorial in how to use the coffee maker.

Very well put, and thanks for sharing your Valparaiso Experience! Glad you enjoyed the apartment and central location on cerro Bellavista - Pablo Neruda's favourite place. Valparaiso is about immersing in this colourful labyrinth of alleys, staircases, houses wrapped around the Pacific ocean. But above all, this city is about it's people, live the Valparaiso Experience and become a local porteño.
Safe travels!

“Lovely apartment and amazing host”
Reviewed 19 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015
1
person found this review helpful

My husband and I were traveling through Chile and stayed with our son and his girlfriend in the 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom Ecco apartment for 5 nights. The rooms were clean, spacious, comfortably furnished and the kitchen was well equipped. The city views were truly lovely from the decks. There is no direct road access, so be prepared for many stairs, but they are very well built so you have a comfortable footfall. The apartment is well situated so you really do not need a car to explore the sights of the city.
Bart was an amazing host! He had excellent recommendations for restaurants, beaches, etc. But he really surpassed himself when he helped us through the challenges of dealing with a robbery of some personal effects from of our car with good advice and even picking up and mailing us one item that was recovered. What a good man!

Thank you dear family for a great stay and your raving review!
It was real pleasure to meet and host you, and extending your stay by a couple days says it all!
Glad I could help out not only for tips and recommendations but also with recovering your lost iPad.

Safe travels,

Beautiful view of valparaiso from our balcony. Comfortable beds. Just be aware that there is an uphill walk to the apartment with quite a lot of steps - if you're prepared for this, then it's not a problem. Highly recommended

Great hosting your group of 5 at the Queen Mary Duplex, glad you enjoyed the apartment, the views and location on Bellavista hill so much! Indeed our apartments are halfway down a staircase alley, but with just a 4 minute walk downtown and a working funicular (Espiritu Santo) to bring you back up the hill. Safe onward travels to Peru, and hasta pronto!
