Very good quality accommodation. Very nice space to spend time in or just as a base to explore the local area.

This place is amazing! The swimming pool and hammock are under an open sky so you can sunbathe by day or swim under the moon and stars at night. It reminded me of a Moroccan riad! The communal area is loads bigger than it looks in the photos, the room is as well. Super clean. Great location - minutes away from the sea and great restaurants. Wi-Fi was good enough for me to do a video (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) interview without any problems. Walther (English-speaking) was super helpful and let us leave our big rucksacks for the weekend when we went to Tayrona and Minca. Air conditioning, hot water, towels. Extremely reasonably priced compared to other options in Santa Marta. Couldn't recommend this place enough - will definitely stay again without a second thought if we are back in Santa Marta.

Mark's place is very spacious and unique. The common area is great for a big group to gather in with an updated kitchen and small pool. We met Mark's colleague Andrea and she was awesome and bilingual! She was quick to meet us and she helped us plan our trip to Tayrona. All in all it was a good stay and I recommend it.

Mark's house it's really nice, we had a great time at his place that we decided to extend our stay. The house and rooms are better than in the pictures, it's like a little oasis in the middle of the warm weather in Santa Marta. The kitchen is fully equipped, with everything you need if you want to cook, the pool in the middle it's also perfect and refreshing, the rooms have perfectly working A/C. The location is also really good, a couple streets off the main street, but still close enough to everything you need, coffee shops, the ocean, bars & restaurants. We had a great time at Mark's house and we would totally recommend it to anyone

When you see the house from the outside, you cannot imagine how beautiful it is from inside. Great location and excellent place to stay. I recommend Mark's place to anyone wanting to spend a couple days in Santa Marta!

This is a beautiful home, walking distance from everything the main hang outs (parque de lis novios, la playa, etc) but removed enough to get a quiet rest and cozy enough to want to stay in! Mark et al were great as well and we would stay here again.
