Rosario Islands- Isla Tijereto

House - Entire home/apt · Cartagena, Bolívar, Colombia

Isla Tijereto was designed in the 50's and aims to be 100% sustainable. Located at the Rosario Islands it is a unique experience at sea!

The Space

We are very excited that you are interested in coming to our family house in the Rosario Islands!

Isla Tijereto was designed in the 50's and aims to be 100% sustainable. Its strategic location allows it to receive wind and breeze during day and night. We have a rain water filtering system that allows us to have fresh water all year long. We do not have electric light but do have a solar panel to charge computers, ipads etc, gas lamps, romantic candle lights, gas kitchen as well as refrigerator that works with ice blocks that we provide.

We have a cleaning lady that will make sure to pamper you during you stay. She will also cook typical costeño dishes such as arepa de huevo, arroz con coco and fried fish (I can provide you with the grocery shopping list. The fish and lobster can be bought, at a very good price, at the island from local fishermen).

The house hosts up to 9 people and includes private dock, terrace, hammocs and tanning beds. It will ensure you spending a great vacation at the sea.

The house also has a canoe to take small discovery trips around the island.

Other Things to Note

There are two ways that you can arrive to the island one expensive and the other one cheap:

A. Cheap- 15us you take the boat from the Basurto dock you may have to wait around 2 hours. The place is dirty but the boat takes you to the house perfectly if you say that you are going to: "Islas del Rosario to La Isleta donde Alejo". You have to arrive to basurto at 7:30am
B. Expensive- an express boat picks you up at the manga dock (you do not have to wait) and it takes you to the island it costs 200USD. I can help you arrange it.

Getting back to Cartagena is really simple a boat will pick you up at the dock at 6:30 am.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Nice little house on the Rosario Islands. An ideal place to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

    Great meals cooked by Paloma. There's a small grocery store at one of the neighbors's house for the basics and fishermen will bring you lobsters, crabs and fish, but bring the other goodies from the city.

  • Amazing place!

    The place runs to a beautiful Carribean beat.

    Certainly suggest you get Paloma to cook your meals, she was fantastic and helps out with all you need.

    There is a store with the necessities but get what you can in Cartagena.

  • The place is magnificent, the cook is a superb human being. It truly is a paradisiacal place, the only thing is that if you are looking for total quietness and peacefulness, well a kid lives next door. So if you don't mind that, then this place is perfect.

  • If you are in the area of Cartagena, Columbia, and want remote but "drop-dead beautifull" soroundings where there is nothing else to do but relax and enjoy the setting and your companion(s) while being pampered by the very friendly housekeeper (and excellent cook) look no further - this is the place! Loved it.

  • Todas las expectativas que teníamos se cumplieron sobradamente: una casa sencilla y confortable en un sitio magnífico; la calidez y la hospitalidad de Paloma y Alejo, la sabrosa comida de Paloma... Posiblemente, en temporada alta o durante los fines de semana largos haya más movimiento, pero nosotros estuvimos prácticamente solos en la isla. Camila demora un poco en responder los mails y aclarar algunas dudas, pero finalmente lo hace cordialmente y con claridad. Para quien busque tranquilidad en un entorno fantástico, es la opción.

  • Una experencia increible!!! La casa es hermosa y la isla el paraiso...

    La atención 10 puntos, tanto Paloma (que cocina como los dioses) y Alejo estuvieron constantemente pendientes de nuestras necesidades.

    Actividades para hacer el la isla, miles!
    Nos quedamos muy conformes y volvimos felices!

  • es una casa en una de las pequeñas islas de islas del rosario. en la isla en si no hay nada, por ende nada que hacer, pero si es lo que buscas la casa es ideal. nosotros fuimos a bucear estuvimos 3 dias y salimos todos los dias a bucear y en las tardes leer , fue increible ! no hay ventilador, ya que no hay luz. Camila, super buena anfitriona y Paloma la persona que te cocina es muy amororsa y cocina exquisito !
