(I can let you know the cost of returning to Cartagena depending on the number of people and type of transport).

Beautiful home secluded in Cholon. If you want to be away from everything you know, this is the place. Fresh seafood and lobster, white sand beaches, very relaxing. Great home to travel with a group. Hernando and Rosemary, the caretakers are amazing. They make the stay very comfortable.
The stay was very nice. Hernando (a nice man who also lives on the property) was very helpful. He took us to a local playita during the day where we got good local food, and then arranged mototaxi for us to playa Blanca the following day, as well as seeing us off on the boat back to Cartagena. The house was comfortable and had nice views from the docks where you take a boat to the beach. Also, highly recommend having a local come to the house to cook for you! It's very affordable and gives you a good taste for island fare. Gabriel was also very helpful in making sure we got from Cartagena to baru okay, and keeping in touch to make sure all was good.
It is a piece of paradise. Very unique place. The house is clean and cosy. It's great to wake up with sea view through your bedroom window.
We traveled with our 3 year old son and spent 5 days there. Nando the housekeeper drove us with his boat to the wonderful beach (it's 5 min away) and to coral reef to snorkel (10 min away). He took care of our dinners and brought from stuff that we needed.
You don't need to worry about nothing. Just relax and enjoy the paradise.

Este sitio es maravilloso. Todo estuvo muy bien durante nuestro viaje. La casa estaba muy limpia y todo perfectamente arreglado para nuestra llegada. Gabriel nos brindó transporte desde Cartagena de ida y regreso. Es un gran tipo, muy amable, colaborador y es muy grato estar con él. Las playas quedan a dos minutos y te llevan en lancha, son espectaculares, tal como aparece en las fotos. Una experiencia maravillosa, quedamos con ganas de volver pronto.
Nous avons passé 2 nuits dans la maison de Baru de Gabriel. Le cadre sur la baie de Cholón est calme et agréable. Les plages les plus proches (Playa Cholón et Agua Azul) sont très belles mais uniquement accessibles en bateau. L’arrivée en 4x4 sur la presque-île de Baru est une aventure à vivre !
Pasamos 2 noches en la casa de Barú de Gabriel. La ubicación en la Bahía de Cholón es excelente si buscas tranquilidad. Las playas más cercanas (Playa Cholón y Playa Azul) son muy hermosas pero solo accesibles en lancha. La llegada en 4x4 a Barú es una aventura que tienes que vivir.
We loved so much this place that on 8 nights we spend there we've decided not even to go to Cartagena's Historical Center.... that how GOOD & Excellent was every aspect about-it.
This place was exactly what we were looking for!!! The expectations were exceeded...
The kindness of the host was unbelievable that myself having a hospitality experience of more than 15 years - never experienced such attention to details even on the 5 star hotels.
-Just like the pictures but better!! a paradise
-Comfortable & calm... the perfect relax
-The cholon bay of blue clear and clean waters just some steps from your bed... just like a natural pool for everyday swim
-Very close to hidden solitary beaches to were you are being taken by boat at anytime you want
-Very private and the breeze that runs through this place is amazing
-The best attention I have ever had
-Lots of attention to details and organized all for us... even before taking us to the airport gave us a tour though the old historical area of Cartagena... UNBELIEVABLE!!!
THIS IS A PARADISE AND WAS VERY HARD TO LEAVE... DEFINITELY WE'LL VISIT AGAIN ON OUR NEXT STOP THROUGH COLOMBIA!
