  • A true vacation

    "I wanted to take a moment to thank Greg, Fannie , Jorge and Billie for our wonderful trip to their home in Cartagena. My family has been traveling to Cartagena annually for the last 15 years. We have had the opportunity to stay at several on the homes listed on VRBO. Of all the places we have stayed this is the first review I have written. I felt compelled to pass on to others the fantastic location, luxurious home and (7 star) rated staff. The home is located directly in the heart of Cartagena on the side street next to San Pedro Claver. The entrance is very un becoming and affords the property a sense on anonymity giving you a since of security un parallel in most hotels. The home itself in immaculate in appearance and impeccable in the taste of the decorator. The views are very understated as the best I've seen in all of Cartagena. The bed rooms are very comfortable and absolutely sound proof. We were met at the airport by Jorge and taken to the home. At the home we were greeted by a most gracious host, Fannie, her ease and grace made us feel instantly welcomed. Greg called to check up on us a few times during our stay and was genuinely concerned with our well being. I've read some of the other reviews and really want to re iterate the best feature of the home and our stay. Jorge and Billie are hands down some of the kindest and most sincere people I have met in all my travels. What a true gentleman and genuine lady. They were there to see that anything we needed/wanted was taken care of and found. Jorge have a very calming (almost Morgan Freeman) tone to his voice and his gentle and caring nature makes him a rare find in today's world. Billie prepared all our meals and they were fabulous. Her smile will brighten any room and her meals will erase any bumps you've come across during the day. Both the home and the service are true treasures in the heart on Cartagena. We cannot wait to return. If your on the fence as to where to stay in Cartagena I hope this review will ease you're decision. Take care God Bless"

  • Great place, great value

    "The penthouse is a great place to rent for families or couples. I had my teenage and older children. Everyone loved the huge deck and the views of Medellin. The pool table was a nice bonus. All the rooms are large, well appointed and each has it's own nice bathroom. Tons of space, great location, nice owner. This was the best place we stayed at on our trip and would recommend it to anyone with a large group wanting to spend a few days in Medellin."

  • Spectacular Penthouse Apartment!

    "A luxurious, well-situated, clean and secure apartment with panoramic views. Close to all amenities and with just a small 4-lane road between its main entrance and a clean stretch of beach with great swimming conditions. Excellent and responsive communications with the property owner - Igacio. And, great housekeeping from Almafi. Highly recommended!"

  • This Spot Can't Be Beat

    "Honestly, we stayed in two wonderful locations, but this one can't be beat. First off, the apartment is great. It was very clean and spacious. Wi-fi, cable, and laundry all inside. Location was phenomenal. No need for taxi. ATM, stores, restaurants, etc. all within walking distance. Also place was very secure (three locks to get in AND out). The Owner was great and flexible. We changed our flight to return to Medellin a day early, and he made sure we were taken care of. Even with us coming in very late, he still managed to accomadate us. We will probably only rent from this owner if we return to Colombia again. Aside from his properties being excellent, he and his staff are like the icing on the cake. For first time visitors, we had a great and problem-free experience."

Colombia Travel Tips

Attractions and Activities near Colombia Vacation Rentals

There are many cultural attractions, museums, historic buildings and cultural festivals that make Columbia an attractive destination to visit. Because of its location, Columbia has had many cultural influences, including Indian, Spanish and African influences. This is evident as you explore the many historic sites of the area.

Columbia is considered by many to be an adventure mecca. There is whitewater rafting, jungle trekking, horseback riding, and a variety of extreme sports available. The Pacific coastline is a favorite place for whale watching. Visitors can experience nature and wildlife tours in the Amazon jungle with experienced guides. The beaches are places where you can relax and simply enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings as you soak up the sun.

Colombia Travel Tips

For many years, travelers were warned of visiting Colombia because of the political factions that were regarded as dangerous. In the past decade though, the government has taken strong measures to improve security in order to attract more foreign tourists. Tourist numbers have increases significantly and many travel magazines rate Columbia as top travel destination because of the diverse landscapes and many natural and cultural attractions. It is nevertheless still a destination where you need to be street smart. Don’t leave baggage unattended and don’t walk around the city on your own at night. Take a taxi and have a map or guide book with you so you know where you are going. Don’t display expensive jewelry or cameras when you are walking around. On the plus side, you will be able to find colorful souvenirs to take home and be able to sample what is arguably the world’s best coffee. No doubt you will want to take some home with you but be aware of customs allowances.

Finding Your Way to Colombia Vacation Apartments

The primary airport in Colombia is the El Dorado International Airport in Bogota. The airport is a relatively modern structure and hosts a number of local, regional and international airlines. There are relatively frequent commercial flights to North America. The closest U.S. city is Miami which is a three- to four-hour flight away. New York City is four to five hours away by plane and Los Angeles is eight to nine hours away by plane. For travelers from Europe, there are regularly scheduled commercial flights from both Paris and Madrid. People traveling from other parts of the world can route via any of these hubs or major cities in South America, such as Sao Paolo or Buenos Aires. El Dorado’s central location in the region makes it one of the busiest airports in South America in terms of transporting both passengers and cargo. If you are traveling to another destination in Colombia, it is best to fly. While there are good road links, traveling times can be long because of the many mountain passes that need to be navigated.
