This is a vibrant Caribbean apartment, with nice spaces and comfy beds. If you want to have an authentic local experience, full of fun, art, good food and music then you might enjoy spending time in our place. The apart is located on the upper unit of a warm Colombian home. Our door is always open and if you like coffee you possibly will be caught by Mr. Peluffo to enjoy a real Colombian coffee. I'll be happy to help you discover how beautiful our culture is. Don't miss the opp to #BE LOCAL.

The space
Our apartment is in a local neighborhood filled with fun, salsa, and great food! If you are the typical tourist you will not appreciate being in the middle of real Colombian culture. This place was recently renovated for groups to have dinners and play games (we have most traditional table games at home), for families with kids ( we usually offer our backyard for them to play safely), and for single travelers (because can enjoy our company anytime they want).
The apartment has a beautiful mural, it is Pio Leiva, my father´s favorite Cuban singer. All of the paints are made by my brother, even one of the nudes is a nun ;) (visit us and discover which one is, you won't believe it). Other objects have sentimental values (one of the sinks was my grandmom´s sewing machine from 1940)...

If you want to immerse yourself in the true Colombian people this is the place for you!. You will have the chance to interact with friendly locals, street fruit vendors (My favorite), listen to live music by the park, watch shool games in the park and everything that will answer my biggest Tesis WHY Colombians are so happy? You won't discover it In a hotel room or tourist places you will take your glasses of reality and experiment by yourself Inna fun way. In our place you will feel better than at home, like visiting old friends. The house has Great wifi, ice-cold air in bedrooms and perfect kitchen with all essentials.

We provide a pick-up service to make your check-in smooth and free of stress, (our drivers charge 10 USD). We know how complex is the addresses structure in Cartagena, it is even hard for locals. So please give us always your flight details and the right number of visitors to coordinate your arrival.

Guest access
We have parking lot, a big backyard for BBQ, a balcony with hammock, a terraza, and a lovely mango tree that you can have access to make a mango juice.

Other things to note
If you want to get breakfast or lunch please just let us know with anticipation, We have the best chef ... my mom!!!. She makes the best Caribbean plates ever and can even offer you some lessons if you are interested. I deeply recommend her taste.

During your stay
I love to show my guests the reality of the city, Cartagena is more than what it is shown in pictures, Cartagena has genuine people and places. I usually invite my guests to practice kitesurfing or paddleboarding, or sometimes visit Playa Blanca to my favorite spot. If you visit me on weekends you are always welcome to have these experiences.
