About Aracely Ferrer

I am originally from Colombia and work as a structural engineering technician. My husband is a Interior Architect and we both love to travel. We visited Colombia in 2005 and my husband fell in love with the Architecture, history and friendly people of Colombia and decided to make Cartagena our dream retirement home some day.

In 2006 we purchased our first condo and in 2007 we started our vacation rental business which has been a dream come true. Our 3rd and 4th condos will be completed soon and we are very excited to add it to our vacation rental family.

We are certified by the Ministry of trade industrial and tourism in Colombia to assure quality of service.

We offer quality vacation apartment rentals in Cartagena directly from the owners. We are a privately owned and operated company with a team of members dedicated to providing excellent service for business and family vacations.

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~

Nice apartment in El Laguito Cartagena

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very nice and just a few blocks from Bocagrande. The is a small store across the street to pick up any basics. There are several restaurants nearby and the area is very safe to walk around at night. The apartment has TVs in each bedroom and one in living room. The washer and dryer came in handy. AC throughout apartment. We walked to the beach which is 15 minutes away passing several restaurants. Showers had hot water and apartment has good wifi. Everything was clean and no bugs either. I would definitely recommend this area and apartment. This was my fifth time in Cartagena and first time staying in the area of El Laguito. I actually prefer staying in el Laguito rather than Bocagrande because it is less crowded and less busy yet still has restaurants and close to the beach.

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Aracely have really understated how beautiful their apartment is. The decor is lovely, it is well stocked, the furniture is comfortable and there is a picture window in the living room overlooking the water. We will be sure to return if we make it back to Cartagenia which we hope to do.

Comfortable, spotless, but too much street noise

  • 4 of 5

The apartment itself is wonderful. Everything was very clean and the kitchen well equipped. The door security was excellent and friendly. The pool area was clean and quiet. The only downfall of this apartment is the noise on the street below. It is just never quit! Being located in Laguito makes it a hot spot for taxi drivers who endlessly honk the car horns. With the street also comes the exhaust fumes. While the balcony was cozy and well kept, it was not very peaceful. The property is well located to the beaches and restaurants.

Owner's Response: Hello Bruce, we were pleased to know you had a wonderful time. Thank you for the great comments regarding our vacation rental and the building. Our goal is to provide quality clean apartments for an affordable price with excellent customer service from our team. We are sorry we were not able to accommodate you for the additional days you requested due to prior reservations. We are also sorry to hear that you were overly sensitive to the everyday common street activities. You can see we have other comments from clients who found our place to be quiet compare to other touristic areas. Most of our client’s comments point how convenient it is to have a taxi available at all times and how our location meets their expectations. We feel the sounds we all share in Cartagena is what brings the unique energy and excitement to this city. We are pleased to know that many of our clients have embraced this energy and excitement and our goal is to continue sharing this special city with many others. We look forward to have you back again. Thanks You! Steve & Aracely
