Interaction with Guests
If you are interested in a cultural exchange trip, this is the place to stay!! I'll be so happy to show you more about our culture, food and traditions.
Bocagrande has the most popular beaches in Cartagena. After the city center I would say this is one of the main touristic sectors. Here you can find the luxury hotels, the most delicious restaurants, shopping malls and casinos. We are located at the beginning of Bocagrande sector so here you can easily have access to the rest of Bocagrande and to the beautiful City Center (Walking distance to both)
You won't have to spend much money in transport since we are located between Bocagrande and the city center (la ciudad amurallada). Walking distance to the main turistic attractions. However if you need public transport, just in front of the building you can easily catch busses or taxis. We have some trustful taxi drivers that we can recommend you.

This place is well located in the neighborhood of bocogrande and only about 5-10 minutes walk from the walled city. The host are amazing and make you feel like part of the family. Like the previous reviewers, we didn't get to meet Rocio as she was away for a business trip. But Monica filled in great for her. She helped us set up all the tours and local trips. She was nice enough to go out to dinner on one of the nights. Not only that, Monica even helped us when we weren't in Cartagena. This place is in a great location, right next to supermarket, mall (a few restaurants) and the beach.
When I've used airbnb in the past, I typically stay in a private apartment but something told me to stay with a host, and I'm so glad I chose Rocio! Her place is in a great location, right next to a supermarket, close to the local beach and a 15 minute walk (or app 6,000 Copa/$3 taxi ride) from El Reloj, which was often my meeting point for friends, tours, etc. Most importantly, I felt very comfortable/at home in Rocio's place. Rocio's sister Monica and her mom where there upon my arrival. Monica was sooo helpful with helping me plan the rest of my trip, giving advice on attractions in Colombia as well as travel resources, internet searches, etc. They also joined me for dinner one night when I was going to go solo at a really cute place called Crepes and Waffles (Monica's suggestion, had great salads which seemed hard to come by elsewhere in the city...only time I had a dark green vegetable my whole two weeks in Colombia) Rocio arrived a day or so before my departure and was also extremely helpful, giving advice for the remainder of my trip. What was really cool was that both Monica and Rocio checked on me via What's App, days after I left the apartment...just to check on me and see how my trip was going. I thought that was really cool. Thanks Monica, Rocio y Mama!
Rocio and her assistant are amazing. I left some friends in Cali so was alone for 2 days in cartagena. They were both so nice and helpful. She even bought me a cake for my birthday and had a drink with me. Her place is very nice and clean. The view is beautiful. the photos and description are accurate.
Rocio was a very nice host and the apartment was nice, spacious and clean. Rocio was available to speak with us over the phone and Whatsapp and booked our transportation to Santa Marta. The location is a bit further from the Old City then we expected - It is a nice walk during the day, but we took a taxi home at night just to be safe. Overall, a nice a experience.
Muy buena elección. El departamento está muy bien ubicado, en una zona segura, al lado de un supermercado y una plaza comercial muy bella con vista al mar. Caminando se llega en unos minutos al centro histórico, lo cual es imperdible! Atrás del departamento hay playas públicas y caminando un poco más sobre la bahía encuentras playas un poquito más tranquilas. Los anfitriones son muy amables y con gusto te asesoran en la logística para moverte dentro de la ciudad y hacia el aeropuerto. El baño y la habitación muy limpios.
FUE JUNTO CON MI ESPOSA LA PRIMERA EXPERIENCIA EN ALQUILAR UN CUARTO CON BAÑO. SI BIEN ROCIO NO ESTABA EN EL APARTAMENTO- AUNQUE VIA MAIL ESTABA PENDIENTE DE MI ESTADIA - SI ESTABA SU MAMA MARINA Y SU HERMANO ALFONZO QUE HAN SIDO MUY HOSPITALARIOS Y ESTAMOS MUY AGRADECIDOS A ELLOS POR NUESTRA ESTANCIA.
LA HABITACION ES MUY COMODA CON AIRE ACONDICIONADO, EL BAÑO ESTABA CRUZANDO UN PASILLO Y ERA DE USO EXCLUSIVO PARA NOSOTROS.
COMO TIENEN UN HOTEL DE LAS 6 NOCHES COMPARTIERON CON NOSOTROS LA PRIMERA Y LA ULTIMA POR LO CUAL PRACTICAMENTE NOS DIERON LA POSIBILIDAD DE UTILIZAR SU CASA COMO SI ESTUVIERAMOS EN LA NUESTRA. IGUALMENTE SIEMPRE NOS MANTUVIMOS COMUNICADOS DIARIAMENTE POR WATTS APP. NOS OFRECIERON GUARDAR ALIMENTOS EN LA HELADERA, USAR EL LAVARROPAS, POSEE UNA VISTA HERMOSA DESDE LA HABITACION Y DESDE EL BALCON QUE ESTA EN EL COMEDOR. TIENE UN SUPERMERCADO AL LADO CON LO CUAL ES MUY FACIL LA COMPRA DE ALIMENTOS.
TAMBIEN NOS OFRECIERON EL FILTRO DE AGUA CON LO CUAL NO ERA NECESARIA LA COMPRA DE AGUA MINERAL.
ESTA UBICADO AL INGRESO DEL SECTOR BOCAGRANDE EN UN LUGAR IDEAL INTERMEDIO PARA VISITAR LA CIUDAD HISTORICA UNOS 10 MINUTOS A PIE Y TAMBIEN SE PUEDE LLEGAR A PIE PARA CONOCER TODO BOCAGRANDE , EL LAGUITO Y CASTILLOGRANDE EN UNA CAMINATA DE APROX. 30 MINUTOS. A NOSOTROS NOS ENCANTA CAMINAR POR LA PLAYA Y POR LA COSTANERA DE LA BAHIA DE CASTILLOGRANDE Y BOCAGRANDE. LUGAR SUPERSEGURO CON MUY BUENA VIGILANCIA EN EL EDIFICO LAS 24 HORAS.
QUEREMOS AGRADECER MUY ESPECIALMENTE LA COMPAÑIA DE ALFONZO Y SU MAMA MARINA QUE LA NOCHE ANTERIOR A PARTIR NOS OFRECIERON UNA CENA QUE ESTUVO RIQUISMA. NOS AGRADO MUCHO SU COMPAÑIA. LUGAR RECOMENDADO
Wow... where to even begin about what a wonderful experience I had staying with Rocio? So I never actually met her (she travels a lot to Bogotá for work), but her two lovely sisters were staying in the apartment and we could along wonderfully - and if Rocio is anything like her sisters (which, from our interactions, I have no doubt of), you're in good hands! As hosts they made me feel completely welcome and even invited me to hang out with them and their friends (which was really nice because I came as a solo traveler). Apartment-wise, the location is perfect - there's a supermarket literally right next to her apartment and you can't get any more convenient than that. The Bocagrande beach strip and famed walled city are very walkable as well. You have your own private toilet, and there was a domestic helper in the apartment who came in to clean both the bathroom and bedroom, and even washed my clothes for a little fee so that was really nice. I had the best time in Cartagena because of them - thank you so much and DEFINITELY stay with Rocio!!
