Apartment for your own!
Exclusive and Relaxed High end Loft in an upscale residential neighborhood in Barranquilla.
Barranquilla is the third pearl of the Colombian Caribbean coast, is more relaxed and authentic, than the touristic and Colonial Cartagena and Santa Marta, Barranquilla was born in republican times and It is a city developed by immigrants from Europe, north america, China and middle eastern world. They melt their traditions with the locals, so its character and its people are open and modern. The city has a great reputation for the best Chinese, Arab and Italian food in the country! Its Carnival is the most important Cultural experience in Colombia and the second only to Rio de Janeiro in terms of size and far less commercialized. Is considered by UNESCO as a "Masterpiece of the oral and intangible heritage of humanity". If you are looking for "the road less traveled", go to my guide and enjoy the ride in true Barranquillero style!
Designer penthouse loft: high ceilings, balcony with a wooden deck, rooftop terrace with an amazing view of the Magdalena river in daytime and the Sierra Nevada at dusk, excellent location right besides Andalucia Park for an outdoor exercise, Gym and Pool around the corner, the best supermarket CARULLA, just 2 blocks away.

You can take the bus or taxi, just in front of the building! also you can ask the front door to call a cab for you. The best way to move between Cartagena, Barranquilla and Santa Marta is to take BERLINAS vans, is an exclusive service very close to the loft and cheaper than going to take a bus at the busy bus terminal.
I am an artist, so my place reflects that, come and feel the good energy!

Excellent location right besides Andalucia Park for an outdoor exercise, Gym and Pool around the corner, the best supermarket CARULLA, just 2 blocks away. The best mall in town BUENAVISTA 5 mins away, The neighborhood is one of the best and safest in town.
Also you can take a bus just in the corner, 24 hour front desk can call you a safe taxi any time! Barranquilla is a compact city that is why the loft has such a good location: in a residential upscale and safe neighborhood but 10-15 mins from downtown which is not very safe at night (so it is better not to stay so close from). When you get to the airport, ask for the taxi kiosk, you will give them the address: calle 86 No. 59B-60, Apt. 602. They will give you a ticket and you will pay the driver when you get to the apartment, the ride is approx. $25.000, $30.000 Colombian pesos.

Fantastic apartment!! Beautiful space and great location. Has everything!!
Excellent stay- thank you
Francisco was a very good Host and the apartment was comfortable. The listing was accurate and I enjoyed my stay. The apartment is in a good location and i have nothing but positive things to say about my stay. I look forward to renting it again.
Este apartamento es cómodo y diseñado para sentirse relajado, ideal para una pareja.
Nos recibió la Señora Estela, y muy amable nos mostró el apartamento y como funcionan algunas cosas ahí, ademas se puso a la orden nuestra, en caso de requerirlo.
Great location. We felt at home instantly. Fantastic view of the city. Will come back.
I stayed at the Loft for three nights to explore Barranquilla. The Loft introduces a chill and relaxing atmosphere. Francisco was helpful to provide additional information about the city, logistics, etc. I would recommend coming back.
Francisco's apartment is exactly what I was looking for in Colombia. I stayed for 1 week and was tempted to stay longer. It is a very special apartment, decorated beautifully and carefully. The terrace is phenomenal with views or Barranquilla I've never seen before. The park is filled with people running and children playing during sunset. I don't think we used the air conditioning once, the breeze was more than enough. I will stay here again when I return to Barranquilla. Everything I needed was closeby, front desk was super helpful with taxis and luggage and anything I needed.
Great host, beautiful loft, special way to experience barranquilla.
Francisco's loft is an experience on its own! Tastefully designed, comfortable, and with incredible views from the rooftop terrace. The loft is in a very nice area with a convenience store and a grocery store within walking distance (for all your empanadas, pastries, coffee, and fruit needs). We were going to a wedding and had girls that needed to get their gorgeous on, and there is a nice mall and a great hair salon within s few minutes drive. The doormen were always courteous and helped us calling taxis when needed. The hammock in the TV room was addicting... Loved that thing! Reaching Francisco and Josefina was easy and they were both very accommodating when we arrived, during our stay, and during our departure.
Summary: Penthouse loft with a chic design, wifi, doorman, elevator, rooftop, hammocks... Had a great time! Totally recommended!
