Exactly Perfect for our Family of 5 on our RTW trip

  • 5 of 5
My family of 5 (three adults, two kids ages 11 and 15) stayed at Casa de Verano for two weeks in October. We are on a RTW (round-the-world) trip for 11 months, and had been on the road for 5 weeks by the time we checked in to this delightful summer cottage. We were all ready for a little down time, some privacy, and the ability to feel at home. This rental cottage certainly delivered!
The pictures on the site are completely accurate. What you see is what you get. We felt safe and comfortable here.
The three rooms were spacious, clean, tidy and simple with a summer cottage DIY vibe/aesthetic. We were able to spread out and unpack. We also really appreciated the wash-machine and abundant clothes lines.
The kitchen is well stocked and the Malloco grocery store nearby had almost everything we needed to cook almost all of our meals at home. Across the street from Malloco was an excellent fruit-and-veggie stand. We were even able to make a few home-baked goods.
The kids loved the swimming pool. Although it was a bit cold in October, they didn’t care! My husband and I walked daily throughout the town and we all enjoyed hikes down to the beach. It was too rocky, cold and turbulent to swim, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying the beach, especially the glorious sunsets.
The internet connection at the home was great! Our kids were able to do their online road-schooling lessons without a hitch. We were also able to post photos and updates to our blog.
For our family, having a rental car was important to our visit. Las Cruces is a very simple beach town without much to do (although we hear that activity picks up during the real summer season). We drove to the Casablanca Valley several times during our stay to visit wineries and have some amazing meals. We also drove to Valparaiso (I wish we’d spent a little bit more time there). One of Pablo Neruda’s homes, Isla Negra, is also nearby.
The caretaker, Juan, was helpful and kind. He checked-in on us several times during our stay. The home owners were very responsive to all our emails, even to the point of being immediately available by email the day we arrived and there was a hitch getting in touch with Juan. They were flexible with our changing plans.
We strongly recommend Casa de Verano.

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear you enjoyed Las Cruces, Chile and that all your needs were met in this small Chilean coastal town. We were happy to make your stay as comfortable as possible and be part of your "round the world trip". October is considered "spring" in Las Cruces and it was wonderful to see the photo of your husband and son enjoying the pool. Enjoy the rest of your RTW trip!

Super casa de verano!

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful place! It's true, we were there in winter, but with great weather. No dip in the pool, but many young people were swimming in the Pacific two minutes from home! The house was very comfortable (with heating ... important to this season). Very friendly welcome!
Do not hesitate to go there, Isla Negra is right beside and merits the visit.

An off-season success!

  • 4 of 5
My family (my Mom & Dad, my wife, my three daughters) just completed a short stay at Casa De Verano. It was a perfect place for us. Although it is a bit off season (mid-October) and we could not swim, we still had a great time. It allowed us to get away from the city for some peace and quiet. We used the place as a base to visit a winery, Isle Negra, and San Antonio. We also spent an entire day just exploring the coast, hiking up and down the cliffs and walking along the beach. The cooler weather of Oct made it absolutely ideal for what we used the place for as it was cool enough to explore without getting hot, but you could still sit by the pool and enjoy the sunshine without a coat. My daughter even got a bit of color in her cheeks from sitting outside by the pool.

The house is clean and tidy and we met a wonderful gent who let us in and showed us the basics of the house. The owner even called after a day or two to see how we were doing. They seemed very interested in making sure we had a good time. I recommend the place and hope that my family and I will get another opportunity to stay there.
