This AirBnB is a beautiful spot that's got so much to offer for your trip, we were a group of five and the room setups were perfect. Each room has its own full bathroom, super nice waterfall shower heads, nice comfy beds with each unit having its personal AC unit (much needed if you're not use to the humidity). The pool is accessible 24/7 and has a great view + audio setup. The villa is located near a popular plaza in Getsemani and you'll find tons to do around there. I recommend walking everywhere, it's very easy to get around, especially when exploring old town. The restaurants and shops around you have a ton to offer as well. The staff made some great recommendations for restaurants. Incredible food for great prices, so feel free to splurge. That being said, the staff went above and beyond to provide exceptional service. From the communication with the owner, Carlos, to the two maids who checked us in, made us breakfast and stoked the fridge each morning for us to grab snacks, water, etc. (breakfast is included but we specifically asked for them to stock the fridge each day and then settle the tab at check-out) Lastly, the security guard is a great, fun guy as well. The one main thing everyone has in common is they're willingness to accommodate whatever you need and that's what makes the experience that much better. Would love to come back to this place again and again. Mil Gracias A Todos! -Eduardo

We absolutely loved our stay! The neighborhood was lively and nice and had good restaurants and shops. It was a 5-10 minute walk to the Old City and overall we thought the location was perfect. The private rooftop was amazing and definitely exceeded our expectations! The staff was very kind and helped us with booking daytrips, making reservations, and any questions that we had. There was always a security person downstairs who was also very helpful. The AC in the bedrooms was great and the wi-fi worked well throughout the house. The included breakfast was delicious. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Great space right in the middle of Cartagena's Old City. Everything was super-walkable, and the amenities were great. However, I was hit with a charge for using what was stocked in the refrigerator, but this is a minor quibble.

Hello Robert, thank you for your feedback. We did share with the team the costs of the incidentals. Not sure why this was viewed as a surprise.

My wife and two brothers rented the entire home for a week and we could not have asked for a better place to stay. The home/boutique hotel was amazing. All the bedrooms were very comfortable the roof top pool was AMAZING! It was very clean and the breakfast every morning was great. Another selling point is the location - Getsemani is the place to be! We walked to the walled city most days ( about a 7 min walk) but always ended up back in Getsemani, Here you get a true sense of what living in Cartagena is like and get to experience the awesome people who live there ( the home is about 2 doors down from the Trinidad place) Last but not least is the service... the attention to detail and friendliness of the staff put this place over the top. I am missing the place already!

Airbnb stays don't get much better than at Carlos's villa. Centrally located in Getsemani, about a 5 minute walk to the gates of the Old Town, the villa is located next to the Plaza de la Trinidad which has restaurants, bars, live music and people hanging out in the streets at all ours of the night! The villa is 3 bedrooms, fits about 6-7 people comfortably, and has 24 hour maid service that is super friendly and cooks up an incredible breakfast! Lastly, the roof top pool is game-changing. The only thing I would mention is if none of you in your traveling party speak spanish, I would recommend pulling out translate in order to communicate with the staff, as getting by in english would be tough.
