The house is just 100 meters from the beach in a residential neighborhood, it is two stories and my mother, my brother and I live there. The house is spacious, has a mango tree in the yard and an anon tree in the garden. We have two dogs and two cats. The neighborhood is 10 minutes from the walled city and 5 minutes from the airport by public transport. There are two bus routes from 5 am to 9 pm and abundant taxi service. The neighborhood is quite safe and the neighbors very friendly and quiet. The beach is extensive and in it they practice water sports such as kite surfing and jet sky, it is also perfect for swimming in the mornings. My mother (Flor) spends her free time embroidering and painting pictures. My brother (José) has musical inclinations and I dedicate my free time to read, talk, watch movies, walk, swim and when I have the opportunity to travel.

    Great hosts. Luis has shown us the loveliest parts of Cartagena and explained a lot of things. The house was very clean. The family invited us to eat with them and helped to organise a trip to islas del Rosario. Would definitely stay with them if again in Cartagena!

    I had a wonderful week with this lovely family. Luis and his mum are both so kind and helpful. My room and bathroom were great, both large, and the house was interesting and exhibited his mum’s beautiful art work.

    To be honest, when I first saw a 5 star rating for this family I was very skeptical. I thought to myself 'how could there be so many reviews with 5 stars, they are human (lol)?' I now know why this family has 5 stars and if I could give them 100, I would. They are absolutely amazing! It was a PERFECT stay and I could not have asked for a more helpful gracious family. It's actually unbelievable. I appreciate you all so much Luis for everything! When and if I come back to Cartagena I hope you have a room available for me :)

    What an excellent visit I had with Luis Carlos and his family! I felt very comfortable with them throughout and also very comfortable in the house (which has great architectural style and amazing artwork by Sra. Flor!). The house is close to the beach and also very close to the airport and public transportation access. With Luis and crew, I always felt a part of the family because they included me in all the activities or whatever I wanted to do and also helped me explore the city, the beach and the market (incredible place). They were always very generous with their time and their patience when I tried to speak Spanish. I definitely recommend this homestay experience to the people of my country and elsewhere who want an authentic Colombian experience. Thank you Luis and family for this grand introduction to this amazing country and culture!

    Que excelente visite he tenido con Luis Carlos y su familia. Me sentí muy cómodo con ellos y también muy cómodo en la casa. La casa está cerquita de la playa y también muy cerca del aeropuerto y transporte público. Con Luis y la familia yo sentí una parte de la familia porque ellos me ayuda con todos y también ellos me incluyen en todas las actividades o cualquier cosa que quería hacer. Siempre ellos estaban muy generosa con su tiempo y su paciencia cuando he tratado hablar en español. Definitivamente voy a recomendarla está casa y experiencia de todos, especialmente por la gente de mi país que quiere un gran introducción de Cartagena y Colombia un país maravilloso. Muchas gracias Luis y toda la familia!
