The house was generally good, but not really a typical vacation rental. It appears to have been set up more as a bed and breakfast. The first floor is a restaurant, which is open to the public for lunch and dinner. The housekeepers will make your breakfast there, but you have to buy them the food. That means everythig, including condiments. They can buy the groceries for you before you arrive. If you want individual bottles of drinks, be sure to specify that. The closest grocery store is a 5 minute taxi ride. You can buy other meals at the restaurant, like any other patron off the street. The food was good. Because there is no private kitchen at the house, the guests have no glasses, or silverware, or plates, etc. Other than at meals eaten in the restaurant. There are small mini-fridges in each room.
There is no real hot water in the bathrooms. The water gets lukewarm, at best. OK on a hot afternoon, not so great in the mornings. Also, there is a REALLY loud bar around the corner, that kept us awake untill 3:00 am one night, and until 11 pm the next night. The housekeepers and house manager were nice, but speak no English. They arranged a very nice driver to transport our group of 11 to and from the airport and Cartagena several times.
