ESCAPE TO BEACH HOUSE NESTLED IN BETWEEN THE OCEAN AND THE WETLANDS

Archipelago of San Bernardo Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

3 Large Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms With Ocean And Mangrove Forest Views (Sleeps 10)

Sal de Mar is a large, breezy, thatch-roofed beach house constructed by local artisans, nestled between the Caribean Ocean and the Mangrove wetlands.

Downstairs you will find a dining room, a large salon for hammocks, an open kitchen and caretaker's room, toilet and 2 (two) showers (one indoors and one outdoors).

The upstairs area sleeps 10 (ten) guests comfortably in its 3 (three) large bedrooms. In addition to this you will enjoy wide hallways and 2 (two) decks. You will be amazed by views of the Caribbean Sea, white sandy beaches and plenty of coconut trees from the front balcony and mangrove forests and wetlands from the back balcony.

The house is located in the area of San Bernardo del Viento Archipelago on a secluded beach in coastal Colombia (Departamento del Sucre) and can be accessed from Cartagena by public transportation, a 2 h 30 m ride to the nearest village, Rincon del Mar, followed by a 20 (twenty) minute boat ride. Geographically, it is in the area of the Islas de San Bernardo del Viento, the southern most tip of the Parque Nacional Islas del Rosario. The 7 (seven) islands, known for their natural beauty and flour-like sands are surrounded by coral reefs. Some of the natural atractions are:

Santa Cruz del Islote, is a mere square mile in size and features the highest population density in the world. It has been said about this tiny island that 'people sleep so close together that they dream the same'. Cabruna Island, just in front of the house, is a bird sanctuary. Tintipan Island, the largest one, features several 'cienagas' inside it. Mangles Island has one of the best coral formations. Palma Island where you can see dolphins as you pass by.

Come and enjoy a vacation like no other where you will live among the natural elements without the hassles of modern life, still with all the comforts that you would want.

PARADISE IN COLOMBIA

  • 5 of 5
Sal de Mar (Sea Salt) is the name of the house we stayed in twice in 2013. It is Paradise.

The character of this vacation home is open, breezy, fresh. You feel like you are one with nature. Yet, it has enough comforts to make the experience very enjoyable. The details in the decorations inside the house (the ceiling, the mosquito nets jems, the windchimes, the paintings, the wooden bateas, the sea shells lining the floor in the shower and sinks), and also outside of the house (the wooden sculptures on the beach, the flowers) show the love and the good taste that the owners must have for this place. The hammocks entice you to rest. The beach invites you to see the sun set. This mood made all our group romantic.

We were a group of 5 adults, a six-year-old and a three-year-old. The setting, with the sand and ocean a few steps away from the house, is perfect for kids. It is very relaxing for adults as well. There is absolute peace in this remote part of the world. The only commerce you are exposed to is the smiling fisherman who comes every morning to show his catch. Once in a while, a lady from the nearest town walks by offering massages and hair braiding.

Each morning, after eating arepa de huevo (typical Colombian breakfast) prepared by Eidys ---part of Sal de Mar’s staff--- we’d relax on the hammocks, where we had a clear and close visual of the kids making sand castles in front of the house. Later, we would swim in the ocean, or hire one of the wáter taxis to take us snorkeling to a beautiful coral reef about 20 minutes away.

The house has 3 rooms on the second floor, about the same size. One room has 3 single beds and a small closet. Another room has 3 single beds with the option of a pull out from underneath, with no available closet. The third room has a full bed and a small closet. There is a sofá outside of the rooms (in an open balcony) that could be used for sleeping as well. The pillows and mattresses are a bit knotty, so if you need a good pillow, I recommend bringing yours along. Because the house is open, mosquito nets are provided with each bed. Beware, though: you will be bitten, so bring along plenty of repellent and after bite ointment.

Bathrooms are basic, but what you would expect in this --more rustic-- type of vacation home: upstairs there is one private toilet; downstairs, there is another toilet. Sinks for both are located outside in the open. There is

BEST VACATIONS EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5
This place is beautiful! The house is amazing, very clean, organaized and comfortable. We were a party of 10 and every one had enough space. The service is exceptional Aidis and Carlos made our stay magnificent, we are really greateful with them, they took care of everything and everyone. The arepas con huevo, la Paella, the drinks at the beach during sunset, in conclusion everything was perfect, no doudt about it.
The beach was clean and the sea calm and colorful.We felt like we were in paradise,We cant believe Colombia has such hidden treasures. We felt like we were in Bali. The fishermen came to our door with the fresh fish they caught that morning making the cuisine delicious and fresh!!
It is a must see.
The only thing I will recomend is, it would be nice to have sun bathing chairs.
The owners were really friendly and helpful, They gave us some many recomendations that help us to fully enjoy our vacations.
We hope to go again very soon.
