Gustavo is a great host. 100% responsive. The apartment is beautiful and spacious. Having the beach at your doorsteps is priceless. The pool area is also fantastic. Will definitely be back!
We had an excellent time staying at Gustavo's apartment in Cartagena. The apartment was as advertised... large, a great location right on a quiet, clean beach. It is only a 10 minute taxi ride to the old city and costs about $7 USD.
We also hired his housekeeper to come daily and cook for us some excellent local food!
Gustavo was very accommodating as we brought a little baby and he arranged for us to have a crib available. We had one small issue with the internet and he responded very quickly to resolve the issue.
I would highly recommend for anyone to stay in this apartment if you want a nice stay in Cartagena. Muchos gracias Gustavo!
Gustavo's Appartment was even better than on Pictures. Loads of Space, Airconditioning a cozy Terrace where you can enjoy a glas of wine with an amazing oceanview.You basically stumble out into the sand of the beach but with the benefit of freshwater showers and a pool which can be used.
There are always Taxis available to take you to the City Center for around 10.000 COP. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and I could recommend the Appartement everytime!
We just finished a great vacation in Cartagena for a week staying at Gustavo's apartment. It is a wonderful apartment, right on the beach with great sunset views through the palm trees. The combination of a private swimming pool and the beach at your doorstep was all our grandchildren needed for the week. The apartment is very large and accommodates 6 people easily. The kitchen has all the things you need so you can cook in or eat out.
The selection of restaurants within walking distance is limited the 2 seafood ones the other side of Los Americas are expensive for not very good food. There are small convenience stores in each of the newer apartments close to Gustavo's place where you can buy a few basic groceries.
I would recommend this apartment to anyone, it is not a luxury apartment, but it has everything you need in a great location and Gustavo was very helpful making sure we had everything we needed.
It´s was a great experience!!! Every thing was ok. The appartment is enough for 6 people and more because is huge, is very clean, the security is perfect and the host is always ready to help.
We´ll be there again, for sure.
Gustavos apartment was amazing, totally delighted with my choice as there are so many to choose from. It was clean very large with great air con and wifi connection. The pool area was perfect, the security guards made u feel very safe and secure. The apartment had a brilliant outside area to chill or sunbathe and it was right on the beach. Great area just five mins in a taxi to the old city, when I return to Cartagena I shall definitely request to stay in the same apartment. Gustavo couldn't do enough to help us with any query, nothing was too much trouble to him, he was an absolute gentleman I just wish I could have met him face to face !!!! Thank you for an experience of a lifetime xx
An amazing time and an amazing place. Everything was perfect. Booking was very easy and Gustavo and staff were helpful and so friendly. The place was beautiful and right on the beach with a nice pool. The perfect location. We had a blast and would stay at one of Gustavo's place again in a heartbeat.
Gustavo es un excelente anfitrión. A pesar de no haberlo podido conocer en persona, estuvo días antes en el apartamento y se aseguró que todo estuviera en orden para nuestra llegada y estuvo pendiente de nosotros durante nuestra (website hidden) ama de llaves Yanubis Pertuz es una gran persona y muy atenta. Nos apoyó con las compras y preparó excelentes platos del Caribe. Volvería nuevamente sin ninguna duda
Gustavo is an excellent host. Despite we have not been able to meet him, he was in the apartment to ensure that everything was in order for our arrival and also he was concerned for us during our stay. His housekeeper Yanubis Pertuz is a great person and very attentive. She supported us with purchases and prepared excellent Caribbeand dishes. I would back again undoubtedly
It has been a wonderfull experience staying at Gustavo's apartment during this weekend. The place has everything one can need: fully equiped kitchen, big living room and huge dining table. The location is very appropiate as it is a short taxi drive both to the city and the airport. Security guards at the building call the cabs for you and on the way back, every driver knows the building. The apartment has direct access to the beach and is close to a convenience store which closes late. There is also a big night club (Morro 74) a few blocks away.
The area is very safe and the security staff at the building seems to work just perfectly.
Gustavo is a very dedicated host that always helped us out in everything we needed (also providing very usefull tips regarding the city and its surroundings).
I would recommend staying in this apartment to anyone, groups of friends or families, who would like to have a fullfilling stay in Cartagena!
The apartment was perfect for our family of six! With three young children, it was ideal to be right in front of the beach as well as to have easy access to the swimming pool. We suggest that guests enter from the front door to enjoy the full benefit of the spacious apartment since the unit is one level down and has another entrance from the less attractive garage.. We had the housekeeper come every other day at a very reasonable cost to help with clean-up and to make breakfast, lunch or dinner. We never had to do dishes!
The Internet was easy to access and worked beautifully.
The apartment is about 5 minutes from the airport and ten minutes from the walled city of Cartagena. The concierge will help in calling taxis. Most activity takes place in the City! We went in most days for lunch or dinner or to visit museums or take tours. We took a boat trip to the Islas de Rosario. We took the longer trip which included a stop at the aquarium which we didn't visit. We would suggest that guests skip that and take the fast boat to get to the beach sooner! Lunch is provided and is ok.
Gustavo was a wonderful guest. Very respectful of our property and the other guests as well. He communicated his needs well and was a pleasure to have as our guest. We would recommend Gustavo to any host considering.
