Rustic style house with 3 separate bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms suitable for up to 10 people
Just a little over an hour away from Cartagena, this is the perfect getaway for friends, families or a romantic couple of days in the caribbean.
On the caribbean peninsula of Baru - punta Baru - this house is surrounded by beach and palmtrees, neighbours being away at least 50m for the right amount of peace and quiet to rest and relax.
Wake Up to a beautiful view of the ocean and the nearby Rosario Islands.
Enjoy the 80 meters of private beach to explore the caribbean ocean or take a stroll on the beach. Buy fresh fish from local fishermen every morning.
Use the ocean kayak to paddle up and down past the other houses.
Rent a boat and explore the nearby villages and islands including the famous Rosario Islands.
What you should know
The house is remote and therefore its advised to bring all food stuff with you which you would like to consume plus some for the maid and the house manager. Be sure to bring enough Water and everything else you would like to eat and drink. In Baru you can buy groceries, but they are much more expensive and of lesser quality than in Cartagena.
Sometimes in the area you might get people trying to overcharge you, try to inform yourself about prices in the region and don’t be afraid to negotiate. Ask the house manager for help anytime.
Please ask for prices locally to prevent overpaying.
We came here for a few days of relaxation after having spent a busy week in Cartagena. The owners Yatan and Hans were very responsive and helped us arrange for a private boat to go directly from Cartagena to the property – I would really recommend this option as it allows you to be on your own schedule. The house manager Manuel helped us with the grocery shopping (it's easier and cheaper to bring your own food) and he and the housekeeper helped set up the house every morning and close it at night (there are a lot of doors, window panels to open/close etc). The housekeeper also offered to cook for us for a small fee, which was perfect. The private white sandy beach is clean and there are kayaks, surfboards, lounge chairs and hammocks to relax all day long. I think it's a virgin beach, so going into the water was a bit tricky, because there are many rocks. The owner provides shoes so it's easier to walk in the water.
The house itself is rustic, but clean.
At night, all you hear are the waves and the sound of the nature surrounding the house.
