It was just perfect in everyway

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful and it was well maintained. Contact with the owner was so easy and he was very responsive and thoughtful. The location could not have been better. We could walk to everything. The views from the rooftop were outstanding. We would definitely stay there again

nice place, little pricey.

  • 3 of 5

Lots of stairs people. No bathroom (wc) on the first floor. Jacuzzi was not set up. Great location though. Paid to much, i would recommend looking at more places in the area as we were told we paid too much. Also the prices are in euro's.

Great central location for an amazing city!

  • 4 of 5

Very convenient and central location for exploring Cartagena.

Super responsive host.

Best restaurants are only steps away!

Could have used a bit more information related to the rental and area (e.g. 3rd floor bathroom is where the hot water shower is, use of roof top jacuzzi-yes? or no?, a list of restaurants (fortunately we had ours ahead of time from Colombian friends). Be aware that the climb from ground floor to 3rd and 4th floors is a hike as each level has high ceilings.

Carlos was responsive within the same day when we had questions.

Overall happy with the stay!

Hot Humid City Night

  • 2 of 5

We are traveling from the USA (Kansas). Family of 4, two parents and two active teenage sons ages 18 and 16.

Before and during our stay Carlos was always available and quick at responding to our questions. He also provided one medium size drinking water for us upon our arrival that we requested ahead of time. You most bring in your drinking water.

At the door the security guard only speaks Spanish. We were asked for paper work showing our reservation and passports. We were grateful for security that was very tight.

The apartment is elegant! We are all very pleased as we checked out all the floors and make it to the small roof top for a beautiful night view of the city and the ocean. The AC is on, on the main floor nice a cool. The bedrooms A/C are off so we turn them on and go down stairs to give them a chance to cool the bedrooms off. Unfortunately, the middle floor never cools down. The top floor A/C does a great job. Beds are comfortable bedding is average to low quality. There are no extra sheets or bedding. If you want twin beds (not the king bed) probably need to request this ahead of time. Bathrooms are very clean. The shower is very small and tight and has a rain head faucet.

There is no paper work giving us any directions as to WIFI or anything else. The security guard helps us with the WIFI that is only used in the hot but shaded comfortable courtyard. Carlos response quickly on the A/C and promises to have it fixed. In the meantime, the main floor Kitchen/family room is heating up this A/C is now not keeping up. The pool is nice and refreshing. We do not find a way to turn on the waterfall. There are two “community pools” on the property as well. The apartments are not busy with visitors but is very busy with constructions from 9am to 3pm. The TV do not get English speaking channels. There are no games or other entertainment in the apartment. The A/C are not fixed till after 8pm our second night.

Over all it is a lovely apartment. The location is very ideal for walking the city. At night, it was very quiet and away from street life. Very safe and secure the guard has a straight view to your door. The price and all cost are done in Paso. Refund of deposit has yet to be returned and no compensation given for the A/C issues.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments and for your stay. Concerning TV English Channels, I have the only available cable TV operator in Colombia which you have only one English Channel (CNN) ... you are in Spanish language Country, so it s normal most of the channels are in that language (I ve been in Kansas and could not watch Spanish TV neither speaks Spanish with most of the people in many places, which for me it s normal if you travel to other countries to adapt to local cultures!) as well as the security guard talks in Spanish or all the costs there in Cartagena are in Pesos which is their local currency ! About you said there were no extra sheets or no directions where given, this is not true. I asked you several times to ask me at any time for tips, information, places you would like to go or visit. You didn't ask at all and said it s all ok and didn't need anything (even at the time I talk to you by phone when I called to see if you all were well and happy !). More sheets are at a deposit place. If you need more you could ask for it when asked and talked. The Wifi was written there at the table on the first floor, which normally the employee or administrator gives to guests when they arrive, but you arrived so late at midnight which of course nobody is already there and we did the effort to be sure you could have everything ready for your so late checkin. About the A/C you are right. They are all 3 new but It seems one of them unfortunately didn't work propertly, as you mention, which sometimes I m sorry but occurs, specially at that strong Caribean weather which everything suffers a lot. We did all we could to fix it and called even on Saturday afternoon the technical guys to check and fix it. The guy went there even being away of the city with the family so he did it finally as the A/C are at the guarantee period still. Finally about deposit, I don t accept at all you say you didn't receive it. Ask Homeaway or I send you if you want the mail confirmation from Homeaway that they took that amount from my account, so before saying or accusing something like that you should check before. If it s not the case let me know and we ll go to police to make the report ! Again thanks again for your stay hope you liked and enjoyed that beautiful and amazing City of Cartagena. Regards, Carlos

Comfortable and Charming!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the apartment. It was perfect for two couples visiting Cartagena for a wedding. Private, large beds, clean updated bathrooms, great location you couldn't ask for more. The rooftop is small, but quiet. The mini private pool on the first floor is clutch after a long day exploring the city. The pool stays cooler than expected and is truly refreshing. Carlos was easy to work with and very responsive.
