“Very Comfortable apartments with fantastic Views!”
What can I add to all other glowing reviews? I guess I can only emphasize you can stop looking and book here. You won't be disappointed. I am confident that the two units we stayed in are representative of the quality of all. The units are new or renovated and very clean. Tastefully appointed with local art and comfortable furniture and beds. The kitchens are well equipped and even offer high end Espresso Machines. For extended stays, you can wash your clothes and they are air dried on the balcony in a matter of hours. We stayed in the Ecco 1 unit which has wrap around views of the ocean, city and my favorite, the sparkling city lights at night. We moved to the Queen Mary unit towards the end of our 6 week stay to try something different. It is a beautifully restored large house with four bedrooms instead of two and multiple expansive decks and views. There are a few restaurants plus some tiny corner convenience stores and a liquor/wine shop within a block or two. A market street that you will traverse each day as you walk between the Bellavista neighborhood and the bustling touristic Cerro alegre makes picking up fresh meats, vegetables and fruits very convenient. Valparaiso is a city of hilltop neighborhoods with steep streets and staircases necessary to traverse between the neighborhoods and access the apartments so arrive fit or you will be by the time you leave! As pleasing as the Valparaiso Experience apartments are, they would be just apartments without their delightful on-site owner, Bart Koenig. As other reviewers have emphasized, Bart is the consummate host. He speaks many languages and ensures you are comfortably settled in and are fully informed about your unit, the neighborhood and answers any and all questions you may have. He will then provide "Concierge" services with recommendations for restaurants, shops, and excursions up and down the coast and inland to vineyards and will make reservations for you, if needed. Enjoy!
Response from the owner Wonderful review! A true pleasure meeting and hosting you at our apartments, what can I add to your extended Valparaiso experience: the best reward is having you here again next year! Safe travels, hasta pronto Bart Koning
“Valparaiso Must Do”
I recently stayed in one of Bart's recently renovated apartments and I can't recommend it enough! The apartment is comfortable and well-appointed, the view is killer, and Bart was beyond accommodating. I can't wait to get back!
Response from the owner Amanda and friends live & work in Santiago de Chile and enjoyed a weekend getaway on the coast at one of the Valparaiso Experience Apartments. Just one hour from the airport/capital, whenever you like to visit you have your home here, safe travels! Bart Koning
“Place with a view”
It was great to stay in the flat. It offers a great view to the coast and was very cosy and warm (we were there in autumn with sun). It is close to the center, only 10 minutes. Not suited for people who don't like walking uphill. This is necessary when you come home and if you have bags you might prefer to take a shared taxi (colectivo).
Response from the owner Very nice family from Germany (visiting their son/brother who lives in Valparaiso) stayed for a week in March, summertime here, at the 3 bedroom Pablo Neruda Apartment. Great stay, great Valparaiso experience! Safe travels Bart Koning
“comfortable apartment in great location”
We very much enjoyed our stay. The apartment is comfortable but the best part was the terrace and the view over the bay.
Response from the owner Couple of experienced travellers - visiting their daughter in Chile - stayed for a month at one of the ECCO Duplex Apartments. Great stay, yet another great Valparaiso Experience! Safe travels, Bart Valparaiso Experience
Loved Valparaiso so many surprises around every corner. Valparaiso Experience was great. Bart is very accommodating and a great host. The units have everything you need to enjoy your stay. Loved their restaurant recommendation Little Red Riding Hood. Excellent food.
Response from the owner After a cruise from Argentina, this group stayed at one the ECCO Duplex Apartments, enjoyed the apartment and location on Bellavista hill with restaurants and Pabo Neruda Museum steps away. Thanks for your preference, safe travels! Bart Koning Valparaiso Experience
We are just ending a 3 mo. stay in apt. 4 and we have been delighted with the experience. We travel every winter and usually don't rent until we've seen the space. But we rented this place on faith because the reviews were so consistently great. We were not disappointed. We have spectacular views from the great room and the master bedroom. The space is large and airy, with white walls and wooden floors. The kitchen is well-equipped. The whole apartment is well-equipped. Rent includes weekly maid service. We are located in the Bella Vista neighborhood, which is not a tourist area, which we consider a plus. There are a number of decent restaurants nearby and 3 supermarkets some blocks away. Plaza Victoria is down the hill, full of people and music on summer weekends. The best thing about Valparaiso Experience is Bart, the owner, who lives in the apartment above us with his wife and 2 small boys and is ready and available for information and help. How do we use the metro? What's the best way to get to Santiago? Where can we hear live music? Bart is there with the answers. When the city suddenly cut-off the water for "routine maintenance," Bart lugged 3 6 liter water bottles to each of the apartments so we wouldn't be inconvenienced. When an older renter became seriously ill, Bart arranged for a doctor to make a home call. When our large amount of late luggage finally arrived, Bart dragged it all to our apartment without asking us to help. My husband refers to him as "a wonder of the modern world." This is Bart's family's livelihood and he's committed to making it work. One caution: If you have problems with mobility, this is not the place for you. The apartments are off Pasaje Santa Margarita, which is not a street but rather a staircase with 140 steps. To get to Valparaiso Experience, you must either go up or down 70 irregular steps. There is no other direct access. On the plus side, it's great exercise. We've both lost weight.
Response from the owner A place is only home when it feels like it, and after a three month stay you know best! Thanks so much for sharing your Valparaiso Experience, and special thanks to Don for the service compliment! Definitely the first time to hear such a lyrical description: wonder of the modern world! Safe travels dear people, hasta siempre Bart Koning Valparaiso Experience
Compartimos un apartamento 2 parejas, y nos sentimos realmente cómodos. Confort y detalles de buen gusto, en un apartamento con la vista más bella de la bahía. Sin duda, para repetir la Experience!
Response from the owner Un gusto conocerles y tenerles en ECCO Duplex Apartment #2! Tu opinión es muy valorada, especialmente siendo una profesional del negocio de turismo y viajera experimentada. Ya sabes, en Valparaiso tienes tu casa, hasta pronto! Bart koning Valparaiso Experience
“Excellent in every way”
From the helpful and welcoming owner to the perfect location and great view. I will recommend this place to everyone coming to Valparaíso. - Well, and recommend Valparaíso to everyone coming to Chile.
Response from the owner This lovely family from Denmark stayed for 5 nights at an ECCO Duplex apartment, and enjoyed so much extending their stay with an additional night. Safe travels & hasta pronto! Bart
“An outstanding view on Valparaiso bay”
A bit difficult to reach,but was O.K. with the detailled explanations provided by the owner. The owners are very helpful. The Equipment and location are quite good. An excellent restaurant nearby : "La caperucita y el lobo" where food and service are definitely great and pricing is reasonable; not to be missed!
Response from the owner Great to have you here and glad you enjoyed the ECCO Duplex, views and dinner recommendations so much! The location of the apartments here on Bellavista hill is central, quiet and indeed with some great restaurants nearby, steps from home. Bon voyage & hasta pronto Bart Valparaiso Experience
“Spectacular view and”
Bart was a big help with information about the city and with directions to his lovely apartments. The apartment was comfortable, very clean, new and modern-a joy to come home to at the end of the day. The location was great to allow walking to all the sites of the old city although the road and the steps to it are steep.
Response from the owner This group four of experienced travelers (2 retired Canadian couples) stayed 5 nights at one of the ECCO Duplex Aparmtents and enjoyed the last leg of their travels with the comfort of home in Valparaiso. A pleasure to host and looking forward having them back soon, safe travels Bart Valparaiso Experience
