Lucy was a nice host. I arrived apx 30 min late to property, but there was no problem with Check in. Key was waiting for me at the reception desk, so I was in flat in 10 min. Flat was clean and cozy. There is a lot of dishes so that you can easy make your meals if you wish. Next time when I come I sure will use her apartment again.

Lucy wasn't present at all during my stay, but she was in contact through email and was very cordial. The photos of the apartment are fairly accurate, though the furniture and appliances (except the fridge and possibly the microwave) appear to pretty old, and need to be updated. The toilet and floors could've been cleaned more thoroughly as well, and weren't up to par, so I had to do some tidying up shortly after arrival which was unexpected. This isn't necessarily Lucy's fault, as she is presumably paying someone else to maintain the place in her absence; however, one way or another, it should be spotless for guests. The bed only had a top sheet which kept falling off, so I woke up every day laying on a plastic bedbug cover, which was quite annoying. I must say the AC worked very well. The pool attached to the building was filthy, which was really disappointing, as I was looking forward to a daily swim during my stay. The beaches nearby are also very unimpressive, to put it politely. Trash on the beach as far as you can see. I didn't bother going in the water as it looked very uninviting. The neighborhood is safe, but boring, and far from the Old Walled City, which I now know is the main reason to visit Cartagena. (Better off staying there instead.) I also felt that the accommodations were overpriced for the value provided. At an implied monthly rent of ~$1600 USD, I can't help but feel a bit taken advantage of. The biggest problem I had though was the lack of a reliable internet connection. There's no WiFi, and although Lucy provided a mobile broadband USB stick serviced by local provider Claro, it didn't work for 95% of my stay, which hindered my productivity as I intended to be able to work remotely.

Response from Lucy:
Sorry to hear that your stay wasnt as pleasant as you expected. Let me go, point by point: -´The kitchen appliances were changed during the last year (fridge, microwave, coffemaker); the electric cooker/hobs haven´t been change because we are wainting for the gas connection to chage the cooker for a gas one, that will happen by the end of the year (in Crtagena an in a building as big as this one it takes several months to do that). - The administrator of the apartment is in charge of cleaning it before a new guest arrived. We have contact them to ask them to ensure is done thourghly. - We will talk to the building administrator and let them know about the cleanningness of the pool. - Cartagena is not known for its beaches, however the building is located in one of the best areas of town, next to the Hilton Hotel and a few block away form the Intercontinental Hotel for instance, and only one block away fom the beach. The Wall City is 7 minutes away in taxi. - The night is $70 per night in low seasons, but if someone stays a whole week costs $400 and the whole month $900 only. - In the description of the appartment it doesnt say there is WiFi, however if someone needs internet connection we offer an USB modem to be charded by the guest, I heard there were problems with the Internet provider, there is also an Internet Cafe at the entrance of the building.

The apartment was just as described and as seen in the pictures. Lucy was very quick to respond and Katia was there with the keys on arrival. Great views and close to the beach and all at a great price. Thanks!

The apartment was as pictured and in a very good and safe location. The only issues are that there were bugs (both ants and cockroaches), also the lock to the door felt very flimsy and was partly coming undone from the wall, which had us a little worried, and the AC would sometimes stop working, so we would have to turn it off for awhile and on again to get it going again. Otherwise, Lucy was very easy to reach and Katia, who looks after the apartment, was there waiting for us with the key without any problems.

Thanks Sveta for your review. This is the first time we have complains about bugs and the door. We have already taken measures to address these problems.

The place was okay. It was a good location but there was no ac in the living room which got pretty hot and humid some nights.

Response from Lucy:
Thanks Dave, sorry that you couldnt be very comfortable due to the hot and humidity.. As it is written in the description of the appartment the AC is located in the bedroon, therefore there are two extra fans. The appartment also gets good breeze when the windows are opened, but we understand that for some people the lack of AC in the living room can be an issue.
