“First Class Villa and Fantastic Service”
Reviewed 27 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We spent 4 days in Baru at this beautiful villa and its presentation and quality of accommodation was equal to the photos in TA if not better. On the first day we took the marina launch across the lagoon (30,000 pesos round trip) to the private beach and restaurant run by the Decameron hotel and on day two we made the same lagoon trip but then walked along the seashore path to Playa Blanca (10 mins) which is a long and beautiful beach with lots of restaurants/ bars. We chilled by the condo pool on day three, very nice and sparkling clean and then on the last day we visited the Aviary which was fabulous, showing lots of unusual birds in their natural habitat. The organisation of our holiday by Freddy the villa manager was superb and the main reason for writing this report - from pick up at our hotel and supermarket shopping with Orlando the van driver, housekeeping and cooking by Juana, on-site assistance with boats by Alfonso and finally returning us to the airport for our flight home. Freddy kept in communication with all three throughout and we were so impressed with everyone that they need a mention. I have no hesitation in giving this rental five stars, you will enjoy!

“Isla Baru beautiful!”
Reviewed 21 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A beautiful paradise in Isla Baru! Freddie did a great job helping us organize our Cartagena trip and Baru was the second part of our trip. The home was fantastic, from the spacious layout to the beautiful decor.
Juana did a great job cooking and cleaning and Alfonso ordered us fresh fish from the local fish monger.
The nearest beach is a short boat ride from your dock that needs to be ordered in advance.

If you are looking for a quiet beach experience, look no more!

“Piece of Paradise”

My family and I are able to travel and stay any anywhere we choose for vacation or even if just to get away for a day or two. Before an upcoming event, we chose this wonderful 3 bedroom and 3 bath Beach Villa on the Island of Baru owned by Geoff Chow.

It was an easy 50 minute drive from Cartagena to the Villa at Marina Baru. We needed a break for couple of days before the wedding event to just unwind and relax. Our accommodations were excellent. The attention to detail and services were outstanding. My son, his wife and my grandson had a wonderful experience that will always be remembered.

The Villa was very spacious and comfortable, complete with in-house caretaker that prepared our wonderful meals of choice and a very helpful outside services person to prepare the skiff for a short ride across the pristine bay to the beautiful near by beaches of Play Blanca. My family and I, especially my grandson, will always remember this getaway.

Thanks for sharing a Piece of Paradise -- We will be back. Soon.

Thanks for your very complimentary report. Just to add that the new road bridge has completely changed the logistics of holidaying on Isla Baru and that we can provide round-trip minivan transport between Cartagena and villa for up to 8 guests.
