Interaction with Guests
There is no better way to discover a city rather than having a local to help you.... Here I am !
Los Palos Grandes (Municipio Chacao) is one of the safest areas in Caracas, there are many cafes and restaurants are just around the corner, also supermarket, bakery store. The building is next to a shopping mall.
There are buses and metro (subway) just a few steps away from home. The flat is located between Estación Altamira and Estación Miranda.
I stayed a total of four weeks in Tony's apartment in Los Palos Grandes (much longer than I intended), and enjoyed every minute of it. First of all, the location can't be beaten in a city like Caracas. It is two blocks away from the metro, taxi's at all hours are just around the corner and a bunch of nice places to eat and drink are just nearby (chinese, korean, italian, arabic - you name it). The apartment itself is luxurious, with a nice kitchen with all amenities, aircondition throughout and the room itself has everything you could wish for a comfortable stay, including an impressive view of the green lungs of the city - El Avila. But by far the best thing about the listing, is Tony himself. He is a super friendly and laidback guy, and has extensive knowledge on what to do, and what not to do in Caracas and in Venezuela in general. Even though crime and insecurity is a serious issue in this city, it definitely has it's very nice features. If thinking of travelling to Caracas for work or vacation, I couldn't think of a better place to land than in Tony's pad.
Awesome vibe in a cool apartment located at the heart of the walkable side of town.
Tony is a laid back lad always willing to guide you through the unique experience that is Caracas, which is in and by itself enough reason to give this experience a high rating.
However, the apartment also has merits of its own. First of all, excellent location: One cannot understate how important this is in the city, and as foreigner you probably won't find anything better than Palos Grandes. Granted, there are one or two neighborhoods that have a more gentrified residential feel, as well as newer buildings, but if you want to do stuff (anything!) after 7pm, look no further. On the other hand -as you can see from the photos- the place was recently refurbished and is very well taken care of.
I booked this place for a couple of weeks before moving to Caracas not knowing what to expect... Now I woudn't recommend any other. Enjoy.
Listing description accurate. The neighborhood was amazing.
Seriously, I don't know how I would have managed in Caracas without Tony's help. He showed me how to use the Metro, showed me around the neighborhood and was always helpful when I had questions.
I would definitely stay here again and I recommend this place.
Tony was helpful, responsive, laid back, spacious, and always nice to chat with at home. The place is spotless and comfortable in a super safe and convenient location. Tony and his apartment will definitely make your stay in Caracas smooth and easy!
I've used BnB several times in several cities and definitely Caracas was the city that i feared the most when i decided to use this 'tool' to find a place to stay.
However, Tony was the best host i've ever had in all my Bnb experiences. The house is great, very well equipped, really clean and nice, the room is just perfect, with a beatiful view over the Avila, the kitchen and the bathroom are very comfortable.
Tony is really nice. It's very easy to have a conversation with him, he is a good roomate, always available to help you.
If you are looking for a spot to stay in Caracas, this is the one! Nice neighbourhood, amazing appartment and the fair is more than fair attending to the quality of the appartment and the host!
Excelente experiencia. El depto es de lujo, muy bien ubicado. Me encantó. Todo lo publicado lo encontre en el apartamento, y por mas aun..
Lo seguire recomendando.
About the Host, Tony

My name is Tony, cool and easygoing guy, I work for an oil company, enjoy relaxing at home, beach and mountain, I enjoy eating spicy food.
I invite you to come to Venezuela, the only thing you need to know is where to go. Here you have a local that could help you to plan something cool in town and outside town too.
