Great property with an outstanding landlord/host!

  • 5 of 5

If you're going to be in Cartagena for a long weekend or a month, Tom is your man. This property, one of five I believe he has in the area, is perfect for a couple or a small family (little ones, not teens). The high elevation provides lovely views of the Old City (as the pictures reveal) and the building itself is well appointed and maintained. But the real feature is Tom himself. He took excellent care of us starting with a wonderful driver, Alvaro, picking us up to Daisy cleaning the apartment diligently to providing us info about a maintenance issue with the pool (resolved quickly) and tons of great recommendations for activities and restaurants in town. My wife and I make a habit of renting from VRBO everywhere we go, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Bonaire, Saint Croix, around the US and so on. But we have never encountered as thoughtful and conscientious a landlord as Tom. The price of entry for us is an excellent property with top shelf reviews. This property meets that perfectly. However, Tom exceeds expectations in every regard. Rent from him. You will not be disappointed.

Loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

Tom is great! Long before our arrival he was there for questions about Cartegena. The place was spotless and exactly as described. Alvaro (driver) was an additional plus for us! We got to do the Volcanic Mud before the large groups arrived. We got to request private tours with him as well. I will be back to rent from Tom again!

Truly Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at Tom’s place in Cartagena. The pictures really do it no justice. Tom’s place is beautifully decorated and well-maintained in a beautiful, safe, and secure building. The view of the Caribbean Sea right from our balcony was an added bonus. Waking up to that every morning was breathtaking.

Although we never met him face-to-face, Tom was with us every step of the way, even before arriving in Cartagena. He communicated with us after booking the apartment as well as days before our arrival. He scheduled us a private driver to pick us up from the airport and gave tips and pointers about visiting Cartagena. We never felt alone while we were there. Having the constant communication helped my husband and I to feel safe in a country we had never visited before.

We HIGHLY recommend Tom’s place for your stay in Cartagena. It’s comfortable, affordable, and truly paradise!

Spectacular view, easy access to old city, marina, museums, restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

The apartments is brand new and very modern. The view from the 38th floor balcony is amazing. Our group of four were all very comfortable. The apartment has two bathrooms and two separate sleeping areas making it easy for four people to stay. We often went to the beach, which is just across the street. We also went to the pool often which can be seen from the balcony. Overall, it was very easy to cook meals or watch TV or just read on the balcony. We all had a great time. Highly recommended!

Paradise38 is heaven in heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I just spend 5 days at Paradise 38 and wish we could have stayed forever. The large balcony is spectacular with ocean, pool, and Walled City views. It's the perfect place to kick back in the comfy chairs, pop a bottle, and catch the sunset after a fun day playing in the ocean and pool. Grab a cabana right in front for $10, pack your snacks, music, beers etc and you'll have the best affordable carefree day playing in the water. Tom is by far the most helpful host I have ever had not to mention all his suggestions are SPOT ON and very detailed. He helped us with tips about transposition from the airport, booked us a driver for the day to take us to the island Playa Blanca (another of Toms great suggestions), restaurants, sunset spots, night life, and tips for dealing with the locals. The apartment is in the perfect location just far enough from the Walled City but so close we walked home at night. We always felt safe and really enjoyed ourselves. This vacation was truly magical and it wouldn't have been as easy without Toms help. He makes it over the top perfect!!!! Trust me you won't want to leave. We'll be back
