Nice neighborhood in Cali. The street has limited access, so there is no street traffic, yet you are within 3 blocks of the MIO (public bus) and getting a taxi is very easy. There is a supermarket and several restaurants, bars and clubs within walking distance.
The house is located 3 blocks from the Vipasa bus stop (MIO) on Av 3.
Taxis be called to the house and usually arrive in 10 minutes or less.
Uber is also available in Cali for those that have accounts.
Please treat our house as if it was your own.
David's place was perfect for our group. We were looking to enjoy Cali, but also spend time at the house enjoying home cooked dinners and down time. We especially loved the back yard and the location close to a grocery store and bakery.
The location is a quick taxi ride from the center of the city and other attractions in a real neighborhood. It is not in the tourist area, which worked well for us, but may not for others (especially if your spanish is limited).
Jhon and Marta who look after the house when David is out of the country are sweet and very helpful.
David had great and open communication with me from the start and once we arrived getting the keys and getting set up was very clear and easy. The house was in what seemed to be a quiet and safe neighborhood, there was even a very nice "vigilante" patrolling the streets all night. The house was very nice, spacious, and accommodating. There was a very nice and friendly woman who came to clean the house one time and she even made us Mango Juice using fresh mangos from the tree out back!! Super amazing :)
Air conditioning was SUPER nice to have, backyard was nice to hang out in the hammock and living room and kitchen were spacious and nice to hang out with friends. The wifi was great, and speedy and the big screen TVs with cable were awesome too. Only minor issue was figuring out how to get the hot water going but after some trial and error there was no problem!
I would definitely recommend this place to others and would return here on my next trip. My parents are already planning a Colombia visit for themselves and I am sure they will rent this place.
We had a fantastic stay here. The house is fully equipped, including washing machine, air conditioning, computer, wifi internet, patio with BBQ. There is a cozy living room and a spacious dining room. Owner David arranged to meet his friends, a friendly couple, Martha and John. They have really made sure that all our concerns were taken care off. I can recommend this house to everyone!
David's house in Cali was great. Comfortable, clean, great spaces, specially the patio. We really enjoyed our time there.
