DISTANCE. LOS PEGASOS PORT IS JUST
OUTSIDE THE WALLED CITY 15 MINUTE WALK WHERE YOU CAN GET A BOAT FOR A DAY TRIP (45 MINS) TO A WHITE BEACH WITH TURQUOISE WATERS IN BARU OR THE ROSARIO ISLANDS.

Cartagena always had names in the streets instead of numbers, but now the names are getting change for numbers. Therefore it is Calle 35 or Calle Vicente Garcia.

  • What a beautiful home! Really interesting and in a perfect part of Cartagena. Yomaris, the housekeeper, was really helpful and made delicious coffee each morning. For a reasonable extra charge Yomaris even did our laundry, which was so helpful since we'd been traveling. The view from the terrace was fantastic, each of the rooms are gorgeous and unique, would love to stay there again if we are lucky enough to return to Cartagena someday soon. Thanks for a great visit Bibi and Yomaris!

  • Bibi's place was awesome! It is huge, the location couldn't be better and Yomaris, the housekeeper is incredible. She is a great cook and will make sure you get whatever you need.
    The only downside during our stay was that the wifi did not work although it was a city wide thing. Needless to say, you can't go wrong at bibi's.

  • Thank you Bibi! What a fantastic stay. The apartment is gorgeous, true to description. Large and airy it feels like a refuge from the Cartagena heat. The two verandas are the perfect way to spend the night chatting to your amigos.

    The location is perfectly central and all neighborhoods are in walking distance.

    The only thing is, we would have loved a door number to find the entrance! A few of our guests were a bit lost and couldn't find the entry way. A stressful way to start the trip, that said, once found...perfectly blissful.

    thank you again Bibi!!!

  • Buen apartamento. Demasiadas escaleras para personas mayores de 50 años.

  • Our experience with Bibiana was really painful. She was a very difficult person to deal with and even though I contacted her well in advance to let her know how many guests we were she decided to surprise us with additional charges arguing the apartment was for 7 people and we were 8 if we counted our 3 year old - this charges where not mentioned anywhere on our conversation 6 months before when I especifically mentioned we were bringing a kid although we didnt request any additional bedding or facilities. Seeing we only found out about the charges and the security deposit on arrival (which had to be paid in cash) we where forced to pay it as it was too late to find alternative accomodation in peak season in Cartagena, although we did let her know that we will let the airbnb community know about her behaviour and outrageous charges (Over 200 dollars for a 3 year old!) and most annoyingly her unhelpful and arrogant attitude when she welcomed us suggesting I find a room for the kid and his mum elsewhere . This has been a very unfourtunate situation and although the apartment seemed to have everything it needed for a good holiday it is (email hidden) or owner. To sum up not worth the hassle, a holiday should be smooth and dealing with Bibi was nothing like it.

    Response from Bibi:

    My apartment has 3 double beds and one single, a total of 7 guests sleeping comfortable as should be, and the request was accepted only for 7 guests at the most, not 8. We charge $35 for an extra bed after 7.
    In order to bring an extra bed into the apartment from a supplier if it is requested. It is in writing on my page. The day prior to arrival Natalia requested an extra bed, it was organized and brought up the three floors (no Lift) into the apartment, she was informed of the extra cost through Airbnb messages as soon as she order it. If the child would have been sleeping with the parents, no extras would have been charged.
    Natalia dealt with the property manager while at the apartment never with me. After she left, one of her group abused me on the phone, and threatened me. Our main aim is to give the guests the best holiday, luxury, upmost comfort, concierte services and a maid to cook and clean, all included in the price! But this seem not to be important to her and her husband. People in my house always feel at home and have a fantastic holiday! it is a home not a Hotel!

  • Bibi's house was gorgeous with beautiful architectural detail and a mix of contemporary detail with historic features. Our accommodations were more than ample and the house was a welcome and mostly quiet respite from the heat and sounds of Cartegena.

  • Apartment is absolutely wonderful. It is like your private castle in the middle of the walled city. We had no issue finding the apartment and we were greeted by the housekeeper after ringing the security buzzer.

    The apartment is located within walking distance of everything! We loved The Bistro restaurant that was a block down the street.

    Cartagena is a wonderful city to visit and Bibi's apartment is the best place in the city! I would highly recommend booking with Bibi.

  • Great location . . . Great place . . . Great service. Unique design with a mixture of old and new, beautifully done. The walled city is all within and easy walk from the front door. Camilo, the property manager is the best, very helpful!
