Wir haben mit 8 Erwachsenen und einem Kleinkind das Haus für 2 Tage gemietet. Uns hat es sehr gefallen. Das Haus liegt sehr privat. Das Meer und der Strand waren super geeignet für unsere kleine Tochter. Die Bilder und die Beschreibung treffen voll zu. Wenn man sich ein paar Tage abseits von der hektischen Welt inmitten der Natur wünscht, aber mit etwas Komfort, dann ist man hier richtig. Trotzdem muss man auch damit rechnen, dass es Nachts etwas warm ist, da es natürlich keine Klimaanlage gibt. Es lohnt sich aber dies in Kauf zu nehmen, um diese Einsamkeit zu genießen.
I rent the Baru Beach House for one week with my family and a family of friends (10 people in total), and we had a great time ! If you dream of a charming house in the middle of nowhere, to spend sunny and calm vacation, this house is for you! If you dream of a super comfortable villa with many activities in the neighbourhood, this is not for you...
The house is really charming, with basic comfort but great service (3 people will take care of the cleaning, cooking, shopping...). The house is completely isolated, with hard access (either boat or a combination of boat/ jeep/ car), so you need to buy the food for the whole stay in Cartagena. But Monica and her father will make anything possible to ease your trip (from bringing you to the supermarket and then to the boat to organizing your trip back).
In a nutshell : we were looking for a place where to disconnect from the world, we found it and had a lovely time there!
This lovely family house is in an idyllic position right on the beach only steps from the sea. It is really peaceful and relaxing with very few of the hawkers selling souvenirs, etc. that the more public places attract. The owners and the staff they employ are among the most helpful, patient people we have ever dealt with. We had requested to get to the house by road not really understanding the logistics of this. Paulo, the owner, did his best to accommodate us in this by collecting us - 8 of us! - from the airport in two vehicles, taking us and all our too bulky luggage via the supermarket to pick up supplies and then setting off for the house via mad city traffic, car ferry and country roads. However, we had to abandon these plans part way through as the access road across a beach was inaccessible with all our weight. A boat was then ordered to pick up us and our stuff and complete the journey. We then had a bit of a hair raising ride to the house through the dark. The people who undertook all these arrangements were so helpful and kind and careful of us. In future we would take the advice of all concerned and take the boat straight from Cartagena. Don't know what we were thinking of. Once at the house, Mateo, the manager (who had come out with the boat to meet us and guide us there), his wife and mother took wonderful care of us, managing the house, preparing all our meals, cleaning, fetching extra shopping from the local town and bringing in fresh fish to cook for us. Mateo took some of the more adventurous of us out by boat to explore the nearby coast and lagoon. This made it easier to have the confidence to go out exploring for ourselves using the kayaks provided. The less adventurous of us sat around on the fabulous sunloungers, drinking cocktails and watching the pelicans swoop along the shore! The bedrooms are lovely with fresh, white bedding and plenty of towels. Two are open air and two have screens at the windows. While we were there, there were very few mosquitoes or other bugs around and, although it was quite hot, most of the time there were breezes which kept things comfortable. The rooms also had a variety of ceiling and other fans which were all we needed. Our journey back was by boat all the way. Paulo ordered it for us and it drew right up onto our beach to get us all on board. The ride back was bracing but only took about 45 minutes. You need to be fairly able bodied to undertake this journey. Paulo then met us at the dock and transported us all to our next destination. A real family concern who took good care of our family. I hope we have made friends for life. Thank you from the Liverpool Family!
La Isla es un lugar mágico y la casa esta perfectamente ambientada para hacer aun más mágica la experiencia. Una opción muy recomendable si buscan descanso a través de desconectarse totalmente del mundo.
Monica, her husband, and their daughter visited our home over New Year's eve week in 2012. They were excellent guests and communication was very straightforward. They left our home extremely clean; it was as if on one was there for the week. I would not hesitate to share our home with them again, and happily recommend Monica and her family as guests.
