About Aracely Ferrer

I am originally from Colombia and my husband and I love to travel. We visited Colombia in 2005 and we fell in love with the Architecture, history and friendly people of Cartagena and decided to make our dream retirement home here some day. We purchased our first property in 2006 and started our vacation rental business. Since then we have purchased 4 vacation properties and hope to retire soon. We both work in New York. I am an Engineer and my husband is an interior Architect and designer.

We look forward to having you as our guest.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The title says it all. I traveled to Cartagena with my adult daughter and was met there a few days after our arrival by a friend. We had no problems locating the apartment and settled in nicely. My daughter and I completely enjoyed the comfort of the apartment, which is like a home away from home. We were all still quiet comfortable even once my friend arrived, she and my daughter shared the twin bedroom. The apartment's location is perfectly situated with easy access to Bocagrande and the Old City, with lots of shopping options within walking distance. It offers a quiet, relaxed atmosphere in an otherwise active city. With frontdesk staff onsite 24 hours a day, who are available to assist you and who closely monitor the building's activities, the building is very secure. The owners are very helpful, accessible, amiable and attentive. No question was too small to ask and always responded to almost immediately. I will definitely look to book this apartment again when I return to Cartagena! Thank you Aracely~

"Paradise found"!

  • 5 of 5

At the balcony is a decoration with the text "Paradise found" and that is a perfect description of this condo. From our first contact by mail and phone Aracely was very caring and helpful. Before arriving you get all the information to make your stay perfect. The condo is very beautiful and clean. Great views from the rooms and balcony included the pool, ocean and the walled city. Sunset is amazing. The condom is centrally located. Restaurants and shops are nearby. The old city is at walking distance or take a taxi for a short ride. Nohemi did clean the condo every week very good and was a very friendly person and always helpful. The people of Morros City are also very friendly and helpful. I can recommend a stay here to anyone else that is considering it. Aracely thank you for an amazing and beautiful time in Cartagena! I have only one problem: I want to go back as soon as possible...

Great modern apartment, great views, friendly hosts.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience, the owner went out of her way to welcome us, proactively providing all the info we might have needed and answering our questions. The apartment was beautiful, well equipped and maintained and had great views.

The building itself was also beautiful and well maintained. And of course it had that amazing pool, which they unfortunately close 7pm. (Actually it seemed like they stopped heating the hot tub at 5pm but allowed you to "use" it until 7). Of course that has nothing to do with the these owners, but if you are looking at this pool and thinking it would make a nice romantic evening by the pool, you'll be out of lack.

Owner's Response: Thank You so much for the great review ! I understand what you mean about the pool closing schedule. At some point they used to close it until 9pm over the weekend and we were very surprised as we know 7:00pm is the standard closing time in must buildings. Eventually they changed that for the same reason. We are very happy you enjoyed the apartment, we enjoyed having you as our guest as well. We hope to have you back soon :) Aracely and Steve

It was an amazing codo, in a amazing location.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful and clean. We had everything we needed to cook our own meals in the kitchen. The views from the rooms and balconies included the pool, ocean and the walled city. We were minutes from everywhere. Nice restaurants were a walk away. Aracely Ferrer, helped make our stay pleasant by providing the information we needed. She was always a call or text away from providing us information we needed. Ms. Ferrer even called a cleaners for me to insure my suit was cleaned for my return to to the states. I had a meeting to attend hours after I made it home. The assistance Aracely Ferrer provided was above and beyond anything I expected. I will recommend a stay here to my family and anyone else that is considering it. Thank you Ms. Ferrer for an amazing and beautiful time in Cartagena..!

My husband and I loved this amazing condo. It was safe, clean, and Aracely is unbelievably available

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our 6 day vacation. We found the Carulla Express the first night and did all of our shopping within walking distance to the condo. We quickly learned that we could catch a cab with ease to the old city (no more than 8,000 pesos) and walk all over Bocagrande. Aracely was available and answered all of our questions within minutes of messaging her. She even put us into contact with an amazing tour guide that took us on a wonderful tour of Cartagena. (Fernando with Colorful City Tours)

Clean, comfortable, cool (great air conditioning), and safe are just some adjectives to describe the condo. The pool is beautiful and also very clean. We ate breakfast every morning on the patio and watched the pool get cleaned. It is amazing how well Morros City is taken care of.

Thank you, Aracely, for an amazing stay!
