"I recently returned from my most recent trip to Cartagena and wanted to take a moment to thank Greg, Fannie, Jorge and Billie for their amazing hospitality while I spent 5 incredible days at the best property in the city.
Having visited Cartagena a number of times, I have stayed at other locations within the walled city, however after finding Greg's property a few years back, it's the only place I will stay. This was my fourth time staying at this location.
Whenever traveling abroad safety is always something on a travelers mind. This property certainly eliminates that concern. There are two locked entrances that you enter before getting inside. Also, Jorge, the on site property manager is always there. His calm and caring nature will have you at ease almost immediately.
The property allowed my two friends and I plenty of space and privacy. If we wanted to get away to our own rooms to relax after a long day, no problem, The upstairs space can serve as a 3rd BR. If someone wanted 2 watch tv in the upstairs living room area, there was still two separate balconies for others to sip on some cocktails or unwind in the pool, without disturbing the person watching tv.
The bedrooms are great! There's AC and beautiful bathrooms with strong water pressure in the showers. Not all spots in Cartagena have hot water, but no need to worry about that here.
Jorge is there to take care of anything you may need. He will go to the money exchange for you, shop for drinks and snacks, make last minute trips to the store to find a bottle of wine for dinner, sit and talk with you, allowing you to practice your spanish, make sure you get a cab to wherever you may need to go that's not in walking distance. Even though this location is centrally located and their is plenty of things to see and do within a few short minutes walk.
While your staying at this property i would also very much recommend acquiring the services of Billy the cook. She will arrive early in the morning and prepare the most delicious breakfasts you could ask for. Every day she will prepare a different fresh juice drink that will leave your taste buds craving for more. After enjoying the day, we would come home to a fabulous dinner from Billy. Fish, pollo, carne , arroz con coco, plantains, the most delicious salads, more jugo naturales are what to expect for dinner. I have never had a bad meal from Billy. NEVER!!!
I highly recommend this property and will b back soon. Thanks for everything guys!"
