“Great getaway”
Reviewed 29 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Super comfortable and clean apartment overlooking the Caribbean. The breeze off the ocean was luscious, the perfect distance from the old city. Wifi was strong and consistent. Very much enjoyed the cooking lessons provided by Mari. Learned how to make patacónes, coconut rice and local fish recipes. Barb was a great resource for history, shopping and festive outings. Looking forward to another visit.

“Perfect Cartagena Stay”
Reviewed 29 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed at Casa Barbara for four nights! It is a beautiful location right in front of the beach. After a gorgeous ten minute walk you are in the Old City where everything is located. We walked downtown every day to enjoy Colombian coffee at Juan Valdez and to shop around/sightsee. The restaurant selection in endless, but there is a fabulous local place call Esquina de Yina a right down from the building.

The apartment has everything that you could ask for. We felt at home from the first moment. Barbara has detailed instructions on how to use/operate everything at the apartment which creates such a hassle free environment. We relaxed to the fullest at the large pool and in the hot tub. If we weren't out and about we were making food in the modern kitchen or out swaying in the hammocks on the balcony that is accessible from both bedrooms.

It was the perfect stay and we will definitely be back!
