We had a amazing time in Santiago's apartment! Is exactly as pictured, location is great (can't be better), 10 min walk to Old City and Gethsemane neighborhood, 15-20 min to Castillo San Felipe De Barajas. Just cross the street is a new mall Bocagrande Plaza with large food court, nearby can find couple of supermarkets and bunch of restaurants and coffee shops. Do not miss to visit the bar of Santa Clara hotel (old monastery, converted to Hotel and Spa) for live music, how Santiago recommended!
Thanks for the great hospitality!!!
El departamento no gusto mucho, la ubicación perfecta, en Bocagrande pero muy cerca de la ciudad amurallada.- Lo mejor la vista y la zona de pileta.- Si duda de volver a Cartagena nos hospedaremos nuevamente en este departamento.-
Muy lindo departamento, tal cual se lo ve en la foto, Bien équipado en la cocina y las habitaciones. Muy limpio. La vista magnifica. Las areas communes como la piscina en buen estado. El personal de seguridad muy respetuoso. El lugar es muy tranquilo. Cerca de todo
Se ve que Santiago cuida mucho su apartamento
Santiago's apt is beautiful. The view is amazing and the neighborhood is great as well. Close enough to get to Ciudad vieja by taxi or walking (in case you do, do it early in the morning, before the sun is way up or you'll be HOT)
The pool area is amazing!
We had to stay a couple of hours longer than arranged originally and Santiago was ok with that so he was very nice to us all the time.
Nothing else to add besides the fact that we would definitely come back to Cartagena. Thanks!
What a great apartment at the northern end of Bocagrande. The pictures did NOT lie! Great view, great vibe. Clean, welcoming... I can't say enough great stuff! Some folks had mentioned something about there not being A/C in the unit, but there ARE A/C units in the bedrooms. And as for the rest of the place....? There are these huge windows that slide open letting in the ocean breeze.... Who would want A/C instead of that?!
Santiago was great in terms of communication and preparedness.... Next time I come to Cartagena (and I sure hope there will be one), I'd definitely try and snag this spot again. A+.
The apartment is exactly as in the pictures, with a nice sea and sunset view. It is well equipped and feels safe. The location is great at walking distance between Bocagrance beaches (5 min) and the historic center (15 min or a short inexpensive taxi ride). Santiago sent us excellent information to access the apartment and to get help if necessary. We used the help of Ena to clean the apartment and she did a great job also taking care of a small cockroach problem in the kitchen. Santiago kindly allowed us a late checkout.
We had a great time in Santiago's apartment. The location was great on the edge between the old city and Bocagrande and the view from most of the rooms amazing.
Lovely to have a pool in the building as well.
Communication leading up to our stay was precise and in a timely manner. Can definitely recommend this place to anyone spending some time in Cartagena.
Santaiagos Apartment was perfectly located for my wife and I. while ots nice to vist the old city there are many more amenities and boos food shops in Bocagrande, while still being within walking distance of the old part. That's not to mention the extensive ab each frontage - and the good facility for same especially up around Calle 4 which is about 20 mins walk but worth it for restuarants on the beach not to mention non tidal swimming.
The Apartment itse
F suited us very well our only quibble is that some. Maintenance work is needed to replace old unstable units in the bathroom and kitchen.
We had prompt replies from Santiago and in person fro his local team when we had issues - eg the washing machine not working and a breakdown in the Internet ( which was due to a fault in the area not within the apartment).
All in all we enjoyed our stay greatly and would recommend this apartment from a location, serves amd amenity viewpoint.
The listing was accurate and perfect for the cost. Everything is as the photos show. Great views. The cleaning woman greeted us when we came and showed us everything. We had to add one extra day because of a flight issue and it was no problem.
One thing: during the breezy season watch for slamming doors. My sister slammed her finger in one. She's fine, but look out!
Santiago was my first guest using AirBnB. Unfortunately I did not get to meet with him, but he was very easy to work with through the whole process. I enjoyed speaking with him and think he is a great member of the AirBnB community.
The internet was not working in my apartment, but he was very nice about it and did not let it affect his stay (at least that I know of).
I wish him the best of luck and is welcome back to BKK anytime!
Very pleasant, polite and clean (website hidden) was a very nice experience to host them and I would be really happy to do it again. Antonija Bozic- Apartments "ZVIZDA MORA" Split - Croatia.
