As wonderful as it seems

  • 5 of 5

When I first stumbled on this listing, I thought it was too good to be true. But, it really is this nice. To begin, the owners are extremely prompt in responding to email inquiries. They employ a property manager, Olga, who is also very attentive via email.

I traveled with my husband and a group of 14 friends (all well-traveled MBA students) here for spring break. We split time in Cartagena appreciating the history/culture and then 4 wonderful nights at this property, just relaxing. The pictures do not do it justice - it has everything you would want. In addition to the stunning property, there are three wonderful caretakers on site. They cook, clean and organize everything for you. They only speak Spanish but were good sports about our attempts at Spanish

The property is quite isolated on the Baru Peninsula. It took us about a 1.5 hour chartered-coach ride to travel from Bocagrande to the house. I think a boat ride would be shorter, but we had lots of luggage, groceries, and alcohol for the 16 of us. So, Olga was able to arrange for a private bus. You need to bring all of your groceries with you - which takes some planning. They already had salt and some seasoning. They were able to buy additional produce and water, but other than that, you need to buy it beforehand. They like to prepare traditional meals - so buy lots of rice, produce (esp coconut), and yellow corn flour. Also, there was constantly fresh squeezed juice, so it's smart to stock up on fruit. I was curious if there was a blender (yes). They also have ice trays (use the bottled water for clean ice). There are not nearby restaurants or bars, so you need to rely on what you have.

The outdoor spaces and pool are amazing. Of note, they have both bath and pool towels. To clarify though - this property is on a canal and has a dock, but it is not directly on the beach. Playa Blanca is a 5 minute boat ride away. We rented the boat (more like a water taxi) two of our four days there. I would caution you not to buy a full tank worth of gas (approx $300usd) because if you just want to go to the beach, you won't use much gas. Since we spent all that $$ on gas, we had the driver give us a tour of Rosario Islands (pretty, but no public beach) and water skied.

It was so nice to unwind here - they have a great sound system (we brought a 2 in 1 cord to hook up our ipods). It's was freeing to not have internet or TV. There was cell service (and resulting 3G) for those who purchased international plans.
