Guest access

Guests have access to all common areas of the house, except for the office/studio and the attached appartment. Guests must respect privacy of other guests & owners.

-Owner’s access:
- The owners have an apartment on the property but outside of the main villa. They might be there during your stay, and if you are renting the whole villa they will not enter the property without prior arrangement with yourselves, but will be on site most time. This allows you to ask for assistance too.
-When renting a private room, the common spaces will be shared with the owners, including all outdoor areas, kitchen, salons, dinner room, lounge, office, etc.
- Manuel, our maintenance person, will come daily in the morning to take care of the pool and the gardens, he might also come by around 6pm if pool products are needed.

Interaction with guests

We provide a full service for all guests and can help with anything you may need. From organising tours to Parque Tayrona, Minca, the Lost City and diving, as well as helping advise on the best restaurants and other great places to visit whilst you are here. My partner and I both work in hospitality. She has a beautiful hostel close by to the house (on the next street) and I run a cocktail bar and nightclub in Santa Marta, so we know all the cool places to go!

We can also supply chefs and drivers and can cater to all your needs. Just send us a message with any questions you have.

If I ever visited Santa Marta again, I would love to stay with Dylan. My friend and I stayed with Dylan and Wendy for 3 weeks. They were always SUPER DUPER nice and accommodating. They helped us with directions to go to different places in Santa Marta and even invited us out to a Mayweather vs McGregor fight party (it was awesome!!!!) We always felt very safe walking around the neighborhood. Congratulations on the wedding Dylan and Wendy!! I miss you Akira (the husky) :) Thanks again!!

Villa Escobar is the kind of house you've dreamed about living in. A three story, white painted lil mansion with balconys, a pool and an evening view to die for. Dylan is the owner and he lives in a separate room, so you'll probably see him and other guests while staying here. Dylan has alot of cool projects going on and you'll likley either get inspired or not notice him, depending on you're attitude. But if you have any special needs while staying here, Dylan often knows a guy for the low, so don't hesitate to ask.

Great place and great vibes! Dylan & Anouk are both really nice people and very accommodating. I would stay here again just because of them.

My stay at Dylan's house was the perfect airbnb experience! The house is gorgeous and kept super clean and tidy. The bedrooms themselves are big, and there's plenty of common space to hang out, including open air terraces, a hammock, living room with a very comfy couch to stretch out on, and of course the pool and BBQ. The sunsets from the pool overlooking the beach below are so amazing that you may not want to leave. There are also restaurants, supermarkets, shops, and a movie theater just blocks away. Dylan went out of his way to make sure I had everything I needed before, during, and after my stay. He invited me out with friends, introduced me to new people, and made me feel like I was at home. I would totally stay here again.

Whilst we were hardly in Dylan's place for long (a late arrival, then next day long day exploring Parque Tayrona) meant we hardly were able to use Dylan's wonderful place much. However he was very kind indeed and looked after our dog while we had our Tayrona day out. For that we're very grateful. As we were for the relaxing swim in his pool on our return from our day of adventure. Highly recommended for those who want to explore the Santa Marta region !

What an amazing property! It had such spacious/comfortable quarters, the Villa is just incredible. The photographs don't give you the full feel, but you'll be blown away when you get there. The view from here is spectacular, and I would recommend this place to anyone any age. I do believe that what did it for me was the host. He's such an amazing person, and not only did he become a friend i felt i gained a brother. I will be coming back here ! ! !

HI, I'm Dylan. I used to live in London but now I live in sunny Santa Marta. I work as a creative producer, writer, DJ & photographer, and have been traveling and living in South America for 3 years.

When visiting new places I like to get involved in the culture and discover the local secrets a city has to offer, and Air-bnb has certainly helped me do this, and now, as a host, I hope to do the same for you.

My partner Anouk and I have 6 listings on air bnb and we both work in the hospitality industry in Santa Marta. She runs a a beautiful hostel and I own a cocktail bar in the Marina de Santa Marta, so we know all the best places to go in and around the city, and can help with recommendations for; restaurants, bars, beaches, tours and transport.

We are sociable people (who respect other people's privacy) and we enjoy meeting new people and discovering interesting new things and places.

Major interests for me are; Travel, food, music, art, writing, climbing, film, photography, physics, and digital stuff. And lying in the sun doing nothing on a beautiful beach.

If you have any questions about any of my listings, please do get in touch.
