Best Owner ever!!!
The trip started very poorly with amenities lacking and no hot water, but the owner responded quickly and got everything in order. Fernando was not only very responsive but clearly very concern to making our trip a happy and successful one. Fernando went above and beyond any previous owners I encountered. Highly recommended, the place have gorgeous views as described, will use again if we return to Cartagena.
Thank you Jonat for your review and being a Great Guest. I am sorry about the hot water heater. Thank you for advising us as it enabled us to get it heating as quickly as possible.
We had a great time at Fernando's penthouse. Everything was as described. Location is great and an easy walk to the beach, dining, shopping, and casinos. Very safe area and we never felt in any danger day or night. Check out the walled city at night and have a beer at the clock tower pub. Fernando sent a house keeper to the condo for two days and she was fantastic. Cooked, cleaned and did our laundry and shopping. Highly recommended.
Thanks Fernando ! We hope to return soon
Great Property! Really Spacious
Great rental - easy to take cabs to and from the city and from the airport. Really reasonably priced property and the owner is very responsive.
Great place !
Had a wonderful stay at the penthouse. Unit was clean, owner easy to communicate with and pictures of the place are accurate. Location was good - only 10 min from the old City ($3 can)
House managers were great - stocked our fridge for us before we got there. Hot tub was nice and clean , beds were comfy.
Only downside is The building itself is a little dated - but once you get in the unit it’s awesome
Best way to bring in 40
I'd been to Colombia before but never to Cartagena so on the recommendation of my Colombian friend I decided this was where I wanted to bring in 40. I discovered this condo on VRBO and knew instantly this would be the best place for my friends and I. The pictures are accurate but still do not do justice to the property. We had everything we needed and the views were spectacular. Although close to the beach we did not need to go--the view from the deck was good enough. When discussing a return trip, my friends determined trying to secure this condo again.
My trip was a bachelor's trip but the condo is really set up for families/couples to enjoy. Each of the bedrooms has at least a queen sized bed and the maid's quarters has a twin. There is a grill on the deck to cook provided you know where to go to buy things to grill (there is a store nearby but their meat selection was subpar. We stuck with breakfast meat).
Security and the staff in the building were pleasant despite the language barrier and the owner is super responsive and helpful. I had anxiety about going to Colombia for the first time without a native but after following the advice of the owner, I was relaxed by the end of the first night.
The only negatives with the property are literally "first world" problems--which is why I still give my stay five stars. The elevators are small and slow. The wi-fi in the condo doesn't work as well in the back bedrooms. There is no cellular signal in the lobby of the building. The hot tub takes forever to get hot--but it's 88 degrees Fahrenheit EVERY DAY so the "hot tub" was more like a mini-pool. These are not real negatives. Place was amazing.
Best vacations ever
Excellent place to stay! Fernando the owner fulfilled our expectations to the max. We’ll go back for sure !
