excelente anfitrion, excelente departamento, excelente ubicación, excelente descripción, excelente precio, EXCELENTE EXPERIENCIA!
Had a wonderful time in Cartagena and the listing was amazingly accurate to the description Bibi posted. Camilo gave us plenty of pointers about money conversions, where to shop and also helped schedule 3 tours for us. The housekeeper, Yomaris was very kind and patient with us even though none of us speak Spanish. We always came home to a clean house after daytime activities, thanks to her. I would definitely recommend this place to my friends.
This apartment in Cartagena is amazing! It is massive, and was plenty of room for a group of 4 (we each had our own room). The outdoor shower was a plus. Camilo was very helpful with helping us book taxis, etc. and the housekeeper made us dinner twice-- very excellent and affordable. Highly recommended! Location can't be beat.
What a beautiful way to see Cartagena in luxury and style! Bibi's place was amazing in one of the most upscale neighborhoods in the city. Her staff was very hospitable. We didn't want to leave!
Wir waren sehr erfreut, dass unser Gastgeber nach unserer Landung in Cartagena nachts um Zwei Uhr pünktlich vor dem Eingang zur wunderschönen Wohnung auf uns gewartet hat. Alles war perfekt. Sehr sauber, sehr freundlich, gutes Frühstück. Wir wurden mit allen Infos versorgt und hatten einen sehr angenehmen Aufenthalt bei Bibi und ihrem Team!!! Sehr empfehlenswert!!!
Yomaris and Camilo were amazing. The apartment is in a great location for exploring the city.
However, communicating with Bibi was terrible. I was anxious about my stay in the week leading up to it. In my initial note to Bibi I mentioned we would arrive late. Her response stated that I needed to let her know if it was after 7 pm because the housekeeper would need to take a taxi home. Two weeks before our arrival I wanted to confirm the address and let Bibi know our flight arrived at 11pm. Her response (a week later) said that I would be responsible for the taxi fee. After asking her some questions to make sure I understood correctly who would be responsible for paying for groceries and how much in COP the cleaning fee was, I let her know I was not happy that her policy for the late arrivals wasn't in the listing nor was it clear in her acceptance email (in that email she said the housekeeper would need a taxi if we arrive after 7pm. The note didn't specify that I would be responsible). I think something was lost in our electronic communication in terms of tone. When I let Bibi know I was unhappy to learn about the taxi fee and that I think it should be mentioned in the listing, she immediately became defensive and told me I could have cancelled after her acceptance email. I tried to explain to her that I was OK with paying the taxi and that there was a miscommunication so it wasn't a big deal, I was making a suggestion. She responded by implying that I lacked empathy for service people and that I should be OK with the fee since in the US a late check in fee would cost much more. I tried to explain further that I was only trying to provide a suggestion to improve her listing and she told me that she never had a complaint about this before and that maybe I should find another place to stay. With limited options for my family and how close it was to our reservation I told her that I wanted to keep my reservation. However if I felt that I could have booked something within our price range and in the same location I would have because of the way Bibi treated me. She made me feel anxious, not welcome, insulted me and never answered my question of how much in COP the cleaning fee would be nor did she tell me how much to expect to pay for the taxi fee. My overall experience was tainted by how poorly Bibi treated me and I am surprised that someone that claims she is a free spirited, World Citizen would make assumptions about her guests based on where they live (i.e. what we can and cannot afford) and suggest someone lacks empathy based on a suggestion to improve her listing.
Communication and booking process with Daina was really difficult. after she received the aproval of her reservation with the guidelines for her arrival she told us she was arriving at 11 pm. I do not charge A LATE ARRIVAL fee, but I ask for the guests to pay the taxi for the house keeper to get home only if it is after 7pm. Daina actually called at midnight to tell me they would arrive at 2am instead of 11pm! From the time the reservation was made, Daina had written several messages complaining and arguing, she expected her groceries to be included in the price, and she complained about having to pay the taxi. I suggested we should cancel the booking, if she was not happy about the guidelines for her late check in. At the end she payed 8 dollars for the Taxi at 2am in the morning when they finally arrived to the apartment..... I do not agree with behaviors like this, and the lack of empathy and appreciation for others. This is not the type of guest I want to welcome in my house. It is a pity because the rest of the people in her group were nice,

Freespirited woman, world citizen ;-) I love to meet interesting creative people.
I enjoy Art, wine, dance a good book and good company. My place when I travel is eclectic, comfy and an item of some luxury would be welcome...
I do creative work; design,clothes, jewely, and houses. El Portal de los Angeles in Cartagena is one them.
