Guest access

This apartment is one of three--studio, one bedroom, & two bedroom--located on the 2nd floor (walk up) of a two-story building (a clothing store is on the ground floor); they are the only apartments in the building. There is a door from the street with stairs to the second floor which guests of the three apartments share. Guests will have the key to this main door as well as to their own individual apartment.

Interaction with guests

Once booked, guests receive a multi-page document and a website with information on the apartments and Cartagena. I have lived in this city for more than two years, traveled around Colombia quite a bit and would be happy to answer any questions or give advice via email or phone prior to your trip.


Upon arrival in Cartagena, our multilingual (Spanish/English/French) apartment manager Benjamin will meet you at the apartment at the agreed upon time to let you in, show you the place, and give you keys. He lives right around the corner at our neighboring building, Balcones Apartments. Should you have a question about the apartment or you want tourism assistance, laundry service, a cook or cooking class while there, feel free to ask him!

Very glad you liked the apartment, Lauren! And thank you for letting me know here about the lack of hot water. I'm sorry we weren't aware during your stay or it would have been taken care of while you were there but it is being fixed now!

We had the best time in Cartagena staying at these apartments! Barbara was incredibly helpful and provided us with all the information we needed prior to the trip and referred us to Benjamin, the apartment manager on site to help take care of the rest. He was so so helpful in getting us everything we needed and even helped set up a private boat tour of the islands as well as tell us about all the best places to eat and drink at during our stay! Would highly recommend!

This apartment was absolutely fantastic. My only regret is that we did not stay longer. In no particular order: Perfect, central location. Great air conditioning. Clean. Lovely showers. Apartment is bigger than the pictures make it appear. Check-in was easy and the information provided very helpful.

We really enjoyed our stay in Cartagena. The apartment was clean, spacious and looked even better than the pictures! Except for when the power went out for a couple of hours on our last night, the air conditioning was very effective. Despite being on a main street the apartment was quiet at night time. Barb's communication with us was great and very helpful.
Barbara, Belize & Colombia User ProfileBarbara, Belize & Colombia is a superhost.
Response from Barbara, Belize & Colombia:
So glad you & your mom had a nice stay! Yes, it was too bad the power went out in the city that evening but they got it back up & running fairly quickly! Hope you can come back sometime!

I'm a bit nomadic! · Joined in September 2011
Barbara, Belize & Colombia User ProfileBarbara, Belize & Colombia is a superhost.

I've lived most of my life in the U.S. but have also lived for a couple of months to up to two years in different countries: Germany, Spain, Australia, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, & Belize. Since 2011 I've been living a somewhat nomadic lifestyle while exploring, working & volunteering in new & old places in North, Central & South America and Europe. It's a great way to keep learning!

I was fortunate to meet a couple from Dallas, who own the Cartagena, Colombia, & Ambergris Caye, Belize, vacation rentals I'm listing. They asked me to help them out and I've fallen into doing something that I love -- helping people like you with their travels. Let me help you with your dream vacation! In the fall of 2015, I was lucky enough to be able to buy my own apartment in Cartagena, Colombia, and rent out the second bedroom when I'm there and the whole apartment when I'm not. I love playing direct host also!

We also partner with 'Pack for a Purpose', an organization that links travelers who'd like to help fulfill wish lists of non-profits in developing countries. We work with Fundación La Vecina, a community organization in Cartagena, and in Belize we partner with Ambergris Caye Elementary School (ACES) and the Saga Humane Society in San Pedro. We'd love to have your help!
