  • 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 for a family

    "This attractive 3 BR condo was perfect for our family of 5 adults. It was clean and comfortable. We appreciated having access to wifi, and the location near the Oviedo mall was very convenient. We loved the grocery store right across the street. Getting taxis (an inexpensive way to get around town) was a breeze because the Sheraton hotel is also right there. The mall had everything we needed: restaurants, banks, and a cambio (to exchange money). I look forward to staying here the next time we visit Medellin. An earlier review noted a problem with the water heater. We had warm water for quick showers as long as we spaced them out morning and evening. (We made sure we turned the water heater off before leaving each day.) Two tips: if you are a light sleeper, consider bringing a sleep mask and/or earplugs. (One BR overlooks the street, which means you can see lights and hear traffic. I'm an early riser, so it wasn't a problem, but others might want to be prepared.) Remember that this is not a hotel, so bring your own soap to use in the sinks/shower. (With the grocery story so close by, you can buy soap or whatever else you forget to pack.) I would enthusiastically recommend this property to others. Monica answered all of our questions and we were very happy with the entire transaction. For planning purposes, it's useful to know that the airport is about a 45-minute ride outside of town. The cost for a taxi was about $38."

    "Living in the beautiful apartment is so relaxing. With it's vintage look and colonial background it's like stepping back into time. You can find the people here very friendly and warm. the owner was very helpful as well. He gave suggestions of where to eat, shop and places that we should go to. We got great value for our money."

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.

Cartagena Vacation Rentals in Colombia
