Isabel has a beautiful house in a great location. She is located in a small neighborhood across the bridge, in a neighborhood called Manga. It is outside the tourist zone and gives a feel of what its like to live in Cartegena in a cosy, safe area of town. We walked around the neighborhood multiple times at night and it is completely safe. Also, many of the restaurants in the area are much cheaper (and better) than what you`ll find in the walled city too. To get to the walled city, its a quick 10 minute walk, or a 2 minute cab ($6,000 pesos). So after spending time in the old city, you can easily make it back to the house to relax or take a siesta.
Isabel is a great host and made us feel incredibly welcomed. She filled us in on things to do in the neighborhood and where to go. She also took us out on a Friday night to a fun part of the old town as well. We were able to use her kitchen and her washer and dryer. Complete with a hammock in the shade, underneath a mango tree, and a patio to relax on, the house is perfect for a quick or extended stay in Cartagena.
Isabel is a súper host! She is very kind and friendly and knowledgeable of the ins and outs of Cartagena. She has a beautiful house within walking distance to the city center and well connected by public transport. Awesome!
Isabel nos hizo sentir muy cómodos, nos regaló un mapa para ubicarnos en Cartagena y nos recomendó lugares para comer ricos y económicos.
La habitación y en general la casa es bastante amplia y muy limpia, además tiene una buena ubicación, se puede ir andando al centro :)
Sin duda un lugar realmente dispuesto para descansar, Isabel es un encanto, con atenciones y detalles logra mantener un espacio armonioso para conocer una ciudad mágica como lo es Cartagena que sin duda nos hará volver siempre.
Excelente ubicación cerca de todo, restaurantes, supermercados, el centro histórico a unos pasos, una zona donde se puede andar a pie, en bicicleta o lo que quieras, es muy seguro.
Unos días de mucha tranquilidad se pueden pasar en este lugar, muchas gracias Isabel, pronto volveremos!
muy bonito y limpio, muy tranquilo y acojedor. ISabel fue muy gentil con la información que nos compartio para organizar nuestro viaje... super recomendado
Our Experience in Cartagena was great. Isabel's place is very well located (15 min Walk to the center of the City), the are feels very safe. Isabel was a great host; always helpful, polite and very charming. We would definitely go back.
Isabel and her daughter were great hosts! Isabel made us feel very welcome and was very helpful answering our questions about how to get around Cartagena and what to do in the city. The room was very nice - a large comfortable bed, a hammock(!) and several fans. The house is located in a great area - easy to walk to all the tourist sites in Cartagena.
The listing was accurate and overall it was a very good experience. The house was located conveniently near the convention center where I needed to go and also walking distance the old part of town . I was in contact with Isabel from the beginning so arrival logistics worked well. It was like visiting a friend, Isabel was very friendly and helpful with info related to transport, food shopping etc. The house is near club nautico so I will surely be staying there again if space is available.
Muy comoda la habitacion, la casa es bastante amplia, el barrio es tranquilo con varias facilidades cercanas a la casa y cercano al centro de la ciudad para llegar a pie. Isabel es una anfitriona muy amigable y flexible con las politicas de uso de la casa, adicionalmente que por ser historiadora es muy buena orientadora sobre la ciudad. Muy a gusto con la estadia en su casa.
Isabel was very welcoming and very friendly. I asked her for some suggestions of places to go and eat and she gave me the best suggestions! The listing is accurate and the place is located in a safe neighborhood. Everything is walking distance and I had no issues with safety at all. Overall, my stay at Cartagena was amazing! Isabel is an amazing host!
Isabel y sus amigos recomendados fueron excelentes huespedes, muy recomendados, todo salio muy bien!
Isabel is an excellent guest!!! Very clean, very kind person, super recommended. Your place will feel better with her presence. No doubts!
I have rented Isabel's apartment twice. The first time I actually stayed at I friends house in elBorne, which is a great neighborhood. Second time I stayed with my brother at Isabel's apartment in barceloneta, the beautiful narrow street neighborhood by the see. Apartment is great and everything worked just smoothly. Although I didn't get to meet the hostess all contacts worked just fine and Isabel seems like a lovely person! Recommendable!!
Isabel is a super nice, friendly and warm person with a positive attitude that breaks the ice within seconds. She is very well educated and her knowledge is just amazing. It is always fun to spend time with Isabel, her international experience and the four languages that she speaks make it easy to find a common ground and interests.
The apartment in Barceloneta is conveniently located a few steps from the beach and a couple of meters from the metro. It is spacious, clean and provides all amenities that you need during your stay such as washing machine, strong WIFI and a fully equipped kitchen.
