If you've ever seen the Dos Equis commercials for The Most Interesting Man in the World, Viktor is likely the man who inspired this character!
He's warm, friendly, and very accommodating. Though our flight into Cartagena was delayed a day, he arranged a cab for our friends, and greeted them at the apartment, making sure they settled in okay. He equipped us with an in depth Guide to Cartagena, which we ended up relying heavily upon, since all his recommended spots turned out to be fantastic! He also arranged for a masseuse to come to the house after I mentioned that I was in dire need of a massage after our long, over-night flight. What better way to start the day!
The house is beautiful, and located in a very lively, vibrant neighborhood. It's touristy but still manages to retain it's charm. It's also ideal if you're looking for an authentic and safe place to stay, while still being close enough to explore the surrounding area.
We hope to return soon, and I would definitely recommend the apartment to anyone going to Cartagena.
Viktor Sebek was a very good host. He gave us lots of advice regarding Cartegena - both restaurants and activities. He meet us at the apartment having arranged transfers from the airport. The apartment is very nice and in a great location. Highly recommended apartment.
Viktor was great! He made sure we had everything we needed in order to get to the apartment, get in the apartment, and take advantage of everything in the area. He was in touch with us and the maid he supplied the entire stay. He made it all very easy and was super informative. We ended up coming back to the apartment for a second stay during our travels through Colombia. The place was also beautiful and in the center of all of action.
