Stunning views from the balcony, delightful sea breezes, immaculately maintained & well-equipped apartment, very informative & responsive host -- we couldn’t have asked for anything more! Casa Barbara was the perfect place for an extended stay for my son and me while volunteering in and exploring Cartagena. From the information that Barbara provided, we knew how to easily navigate to the Old City and beyond, arrange for a home cooked Colombian meal, purchase fresh fruit/vegetables from the nearby vendor, join a Salsa/Latin dance class, dine on delicious meals at local restaurants, visit museums on “free days” :-) , and more. Next time we will consider availing ourselves of Spanish classes also! I would highly recommend Casa Barbara!
Four of us stayed at Casa Barbara in November, 2016. We had a fabulous stay in this beautifully maintained condo. The beds are comfy, we loved having 2.5 baths, beach and bath towels are readily available, and we were so pleased to have wifi, AC, hot water, and a washer/dryer! The kitchen is well equipped and everything is modern and clean. The view from the balcony is incredible, and the hammocks are a wonderful touch. Building security is good, and the pool is a wonderful option. The location is conveniently located to both the airport and the Old City. Barbara communicated well throughout the process, and we loved having all of the provided information about tours, places to visit, and things to do. We will stay here again!
In March 2016 I spent a week at Casa Barbara. The building’s entry is staffed round the clock, and at night the building and outside walks are well lit. Two elevators offer a quick ride to the 15th floor apartment. The apartment itself is just as bright, clean and attractive as the pictures show. The well maintained kitchen is stocked with dishes, glassware and cookware so if you wanted to prepare full meals, you could definitely do so. But we did not! Certainly a cup of coffee in the morning while sitting on the very private balcony overlooking the Caribbean is a most delightful way to start the day. Many private accommodations have only cold water, and people may be accustomed to that; but I loved the hot water showers. There are plenty of bath towels as well as beach towels available. Knowing that there was a washer AND a dryer allowed me to be minimal with packing. And, of course, there is WiFi. We went into the walled city most days which was an easy walk. We could walk home at night but often took a taxi that was 6000-8000 pesos ($2-$3). Barbara, who speaks Spanish as well as English, knows the area well and was very helpful both before and during my stay. Highly recommended!!!
