Our service and CHEF ANA!!!!!! the best food at home!!!
My family and I, ages 15 to 80, stayed at this beautiful property during Christmas week. The location in the old city was close to everything. Rosa and Katia prepared tasty meals and fresh juices daily that were put of this world. The doormen were friendly and always ready to help with anything. The whole rental process was simple and problem free. You will love Cartagena.
My birthday celebration in Cartagena was amazing.! The property was as I expected. We were a party of 7 ladies and my dad. The rooms were as depicted on homeaway. The house amenities; pool, bathrooms and common areas were in excellent condition. The cook Rosa and Katia the housekeeper were so caring, helpful, and accommodating. There are numerous restaurants and we definitely tried various, however, Rosa's cooking topped our visit! We requested traditional breakfast and lunch and that is exactly what was cooked. The fresh juices made varied every day; maraculla, lemon, cranberry, guanavana. This was my 3rd visit to Colombia since my arrival to NY in 1976 so the home made cooking brought back childhood memories that literally had me misty eyed ; arepa con huevo, empanadas, caribanuelas, arroz con coco, pescado frito, patacon, and on and on. I felt like a queen, I literally gave the cash for groceries and Katia and Rosa took care of cooking and returned receipts for all. The master suite on the 2nd floor which I shared with my godmother was comfortable and cool. The AC was on point and there were times where we turned it off since it got a little cold! The indoor pool gathering at night was amazing; we sat around and laughed and shared stories from our past. the 4th floor look out area, served as my meditation spot. I woke up very early several days and just meditated and took in the peaceful sounds of the morning. The concierge at the entrance was helpful and also offer guidance on local spots. The few times we used the common pool we practically had it for ourselves. The proximity to the water was convenient for me as I also ran after meditated along the water by simply crossing the street. Ivan, thank you for maintaining the house in such great condition -- we all loved it. The area where the house is located is safe and walking distance to everything. One thing that my girlfriends did wish was the jacuzzi to have been heated-- but since most nights it was pretty hot we did not mind the coolness of the water. I would consider renting this beautiful home again - eyes closed! :)
My husband and I just spent 6 days here with 4 close friends. We had such a wonderful experience and this house was perfect. What a great layout with private rooms and baths as well as small rooftop suite with outdoor jacuzzi. Private pool was perfect off the kitchen and location of the house was the best for wandering and discovering the beautiful walled city of Cartagena. Make sure to request private chef, Anna, as her wonderful authentic Colombian cooking was unique and delicious each day.The meals this lady cooked were so good that we don't know why people would even decline the chef option, it really should just be included with the stay, as it made our experience in the house so perfect! Katia, the housekeeper was super friendly and resourceful, she even lined up a group of masseuse's to come in one day for us. Nelson was also helpful in lining up a private city tour in air conditioned van. We were honestly sad to go when our time was up. Not only was this house amazing but the staff was so warm, they felt like family. I'm really hoping we can come back some day as we just had an epic vacation!!
Great stay at this house, it was very clean and tidy. Housekeeper Katia and cook Maria Eugenia were great and helpful. They kept house clean and cooked delicious colombian food. House is very well located near restaurants and shops. I would definetely recommend this house and would stay again.
We had a perfect vacation at this spot. The house has plenty of space both indoors and outdoors--which was great for a vacation with nine women. The roof space was great for laying out and chatting, and the location was ideal. Couldn't have imagined a better setup! Also Chef Ana is a must!!!
Our group of 5 visited Cartagena in early-March for a bachelor party and stayed at this lovely house.
This is a modern multi-story townhouse in a luxury condo complex located on the northern end of the Centro (old town) section of Cartagena, within walking distance of many of the city's top restaurants and nightlife. The house is perfect for a group who desire some level of privacy (separate bedrooms) and communal living space while touring the city. While the house is well-maintained with a friendly staff, the high level of security might be off-putting to some visitors (e.g. groups of young men/women) while refreshing to others (e.g. families with children).
Ivan (the owner) was responsive by email leading up to our stay but did not offer much in the way of recommendations and connections with local vendors and guides. We were looking to book a boat to the Rosario Islands to check out the "nice" beaches (the city beaches are nothing special) so we were kind of on our own in that department. The housekeeper we dealt with was Katja who was very nice. She spoke mostly if not entirely in Spanish however so we were lucky to have a member of our group who was relatively fluent in everyday Spanish.
The only issue we encountered during our stay at the house was the water pressure and temperature, particularly in the 3rd floor bathroom. One night after midnight, there was no water pressure at all until the next morning, so showering and the typical nighttime bathroom routine was difficult. Something to be aware of, but not a huge deal. Also worth noting-- while this is not a hotel, when you're paying to stay at a luxury home at this price-point you expect a few more amenities to be provided such as shampoo, conditioner, perhaps some basic drinks in the fridge etc. Again, not a big deal but it would be nice to have these upon arrival.
Overall, a very nice stay. Would definitely return to Cartagena, a lovely but manageable Colombian town for both singles and couples looking for a getaway.
