"Words cannot describe how amazing the property and experience was for us. Here are a few highlights for those thinking about booking:
-Greg (the property owner) was incredibly responsive from the moment we first inquired about our travel dates. He is always available to answer questions about the property and Cartagena.
-Fany (the property manager in Cartagena) was also just outstanding. Fany picked us up from the airport and took us to the property. She also pointed out different sites in Cartagena along the way. Once we got there she showed us around and introduced us to Jorge (on-site property manager) and Billie (chef). Fany had great suggestions from things to do to places to eat. She also heard that were celebrating a birthday on the trip so she went out of her way to get a cake and bring it back. She was truly wonderful!
-Jorge (on-site property manager) is one of the kindest, most genuine people you will meet. He made us feel right at home and was there to answer any questions we had. He is also so thoughtful. When one of us commented on how much we liked the hot sauce at the house he ran out and purchased 2 bottles to take home. It was great to have him with us during our stay.
-Billie's food is to die for. All of our meals were restaurant quality amazing and the fresh juices she prepared with each meal were delicious! We will be thinking about her food for years to come. If you are on the fence about hiring her - do it! You will not regret it!
-The property itself is even better than the pictures. It is centrally located near everything - from shops to the ocean to restaurants (Crepes & Waffles is literally just downstairs) - it has it all. The streets are also bustling with people at all hours - you will always feel safe. Our favorite part of the house was the top level. In addition to a great area to lounge/relax, there are balconies on both sides of the top level which have amazing views.
-The city is also beautiful and a great place to vacation (we wish we would have had a few more days to explore). Given our short stay we chose to do a sightseeing tour on a Chiva bus (arranged by Jorge) and that was great. In addition to learning more about Cartagena, it also stopped at the key sites and allowed us time to walk around. Very efficient way to see the city! We ate at La Vitrola for the birthday celebration dinner (recommended by Jorge and Fany) and it was outstanding.
Overall an amazing trip and much much better than a hotel!!!"

"We absolutely enjoyed every minute of our 10 days in this penthouse. The location is on the border of Bocagrande and El Laguito and right across from a really fun beach. Taxis to el Centro or Getsemani were less than $3 and easily available. The apartment has everything one could want, Internet, washer, TV, microwave, blender, panoramic windows, etc. Santiago was very easy to work with and his onsite manager, Edgar, was always at our disposal. Very secure building 24 hours. We are already planning our return next summer!"
