Interaction with Guests

La Boquilla is a long wide beach with several upscale condominiums and resorts. Beautiful sunsets and warm water year around. It is a more exclusive beach a short walk from the native fishing village.
The building front desk attendant can call taxis by radio for you. There are frequent public buses that pass in front of the building frequented by the native population that take you to the historic center.
No smoking inside apartment.
Our host was very helpful, our stay in Cartagena, was wonderful. The Condo was great highly recommended for visitors to Cartagena, it is located right on the beach and short cab ride to any where you want to go. Taxi cabs very convenient and usually $10 USD or less to most locations around the city. My 1st trip without a rent a car. For a small fee the housekeeper will clean and cook breakfast and lunch. What else could as for. Thank Gustavo
Estuvimos muy bien en este apartamento espacioso con todas las comodidades. Lo mejor es su ubicación y salida directa hacia la playa. La zona de la piscina del edificio también es muy agradable. Hay vigilancia permanente lo que hace sentirse muy seguro. Yanubis quien se encarga del apartamento nos atendió muy bien y nos preparó almuerzos y desayunos con muy buena sazón.
Gustavo estuvo muy pendiente de nuestra llegada varios días antes y atento a nuestras solicitudes. Gracias por la hospitalidad.
Our stay at Gustavo's apartment was truly awesome! We were so pleased with the layout and accommodations we really wanted to stay longer! We traveled with toddlers and 6 adults and were very comfortable with all the space we had- I was shocked by how big the apartment was! Also, the location was ideal for our big family as we had easy access to the beach and pool plus a huge patio. Gustavo was great to communicate with, answering all my questions and making sure we had everything we needed from pack-n-plays to introducing us to Yanuby's who helped us clean up and even cooked some of our meals (for a little extra $).
Other positive things:
*well-equipped kitchen (even had coolers for beach)
*beachfront access with tent rentals for as little as $12 a day
*doorman who helped getting us taxis
*10 minutes from airport, 20 from
Overall, we had an amazing stay and would go back there anytime!
This is my first time using Airbnb and I couldn't be happier with Gustavo's hospitality and attention to detail. His apartment was incredible but what really set it apart from the rest was Gustavo's quick response to every question I had and his willingness to help us make the most of beautiful cartagena. Yanubis was also incredible we are going miss her delecious and authentic meals. She is definitely a must.
This is a 5 star apartment on a 5 star location.
We had a wonderful stay at the apartment in La Boquilla. The apartment is spacious, comfortable and very clean - no issues what so ever. It is well equipped with anything you could need during your stay and the amenities such as pool and jacuzzi were wonderful to have after a day out sightseeing. Gustavo was quick to respond to our inquiries and was very helpful when planning our stay, even going out of his way to call before the trip to clarify questions I had and then upon arrival to see if all was okay. Be sure to get to know Yanubis. She greeted us upon arrival, showed us around the apartment and cooked for us on a few occasions. Simply amazing. We enjoyed getting to know her. Enjoy your stay!
Gustavo ' s apartment is really spacious & comfortable - it was the perfect place to relax after a hectic week in Tayrona and Minca. Gustavo responded immediately to any communications from us and fixed any minor problems instantly. We were initially worried that the location would prove too isolated/too far from the old town but it worked out fine in the end. The traffic the first weekend was horrific but it eased during the week, so that getting in and out of the town by bus or taxi was easy enough. The one thing we missed was a decent supermarket within walking distance. The mini markets nearby stock very little. We also found the jet skiers and kite surfers on the beach a real nuisance. They took much of the pleasure out of swimming in the sea - we decided to swim there early in the morning before they appeared and then move to the pool. All in all though, a great stay in Cartagena!
Gustavo was very nice and communicative, unfortunately the place was in a bit of a state of disrepair, the telephone was not working, a door handle was broken,along with a host of other small things. In general it seemed as if the property had not had required maintenance in a while. To be honest, I thought the price of 700 USD per day would at the very least include toiletries, and it seemed cheap to not do so.
