Interaction with Guests
I live in Bogotá but I travel often to Cartagena, so if it happens I will gladly take you out to dance clubs or to have some drinks in this lovely city.
It's located in the best place of the walled city, 1 block away from the Plaza Santo Domingo, in front of 'Café del Mar' - The best place to have drinks over the wall. There is an 'Exito' (Big supermaket) just 20 minutes walking away and 3 minutes by taxi..There's no best spot at the walled city because you can also have a sea sight ! (Check the guide here thru airbnb to see restaurants , bars and clubs near by). It's pretty safe to walk at EVERY time of the night and day.
To get around you just need to walk. 80% of the places you will visit are within walking distance. If not, you have taxi drivers 24/7 in front of the building at a maximum price of 12.000 COP (6 USD) of all rides in Cartagena.

I went with a group of 8 (ages 22-28) and had a fantastic time staying at this house in this location. When visiting Cartagena, there are a plenty of different areas where you can stay..but this is the best. The streets are all beautiful to walk through, and we spent most of our days doing so. Restaurants of all kinds are available, well priced, and amazing. The people of the area are all extremely nice, honestly making them the most welcoming city I have ever been to in the world. The house was great with working A/C units per room which were super necessary to battle the heat and humidity (trip was in early June). My one cautionary comment is that you must be prepared for a lot of mosquitoes, as they easily find themselves inside the house. Other than that, the house is clean, comfortable, and a great home base in a fantastic location. Cafe Del Mar has music bumping until pretty late and the song birds start singing pretty early, but neither were too distracting and added positively to the vibe of the country. Shirley is the lady who cleans the house and cooks the breakfast, and she was very helpful and nice. When we inquired with Jaime about the mosquito problem, he reacted immediately and sent her over with some tools for dealing with them. Both were great, and Jaime is doing a great job of providing the ideal spot for travelers such as myself.
All in all, the location of the house, friendliness of the staff, and comfort of the dwellings make this an extremely affordable place to stay in what is now one of my favorite cities in the world. Thanks Jaime
We had a great stay here. Jaime was very easy to reach and always responded quickly. The place is charming and has lots of character and the rooftop patio is awesome. We went to both Getsemani and Boca Grande and we were glad we chose to stay in the old city. The housekeeper was super nice and her breakfasts even better. Great place!
We couldn't recommend this place more. Jaime is very responsive and communicative. There were 6 of us staying here for weekend and we really enjoyed the apartment. The space is fun (there's an outdoor shower on the top floor with views!), the sleeping arrangements are comfortable, and the decor is nice. The AC works well which was key! And most of all the apartment is well situated in the old city. Don't think about it twice - you should stay here.
This apartment is a real gem in the Walled City. Great location with walking access to many of the must-see sights, including Cafe del Mar. This is good and bad as the music, partying and traffic noise can go on late into the evening. Jaime was a super host, and we loved Shirley who cooked delicious breakfasts for us. The apartment was comfortable for our family of 4 but could accommodate more without problem. Air conditioning worked well given the hot weather. The 3rd floor bedroom has awesome views of the ocean, Boca Grande and the wall.
This three level home in cartagena is beautiful. We stayed there during a very hot period and it's air conditioning and gorgeous patio made it amazing. The dryer/washer and daily cleaning really made it an enjoyable stay as well. Only recommendation is to be aware this is a very vibrant location with bustling Street noise and Cafe del Mar playing music until late, so plan accordingly.
