3 rooms available for hire with double beds, a/c & private bathroom. Free coffee and drinking water.

The space

The house has 3 floors, consisting of a big open plan living room and dining room, large kitchen with modern cooker and oven, fridge, dishwasher and microwave. 4 double bedrooms, a study/office space, balcony and common area on the second floor, and 4 bathrooms. Plus an outside patio and balcony with swimming pool, Jacuzzi and gas powered BBQ, with air conditioning throughout the house.

Located in Rodadero, the villa is just 10 minutes drive from Santa Marta and 15 Minutes from the airport, and is 5 minutes walk to Arecife (the main centro de comercio) and all major supermarkets, and 10 minutes walk to the beach and most of the main restaurants and shops of Rodadero.

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 can help with suggestions for anythinganything you may need. From organising tours to Parque Tayrona, Minca and the Lost City to diving, as well as helping advise on the best restaurants and bars 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.

Wow. Staying at Villa Escobar was really one of the highlights of our Colombia trip. We loved the location of the house, overlooking Rodadero with ocean views. You can watch the sunset from the convenience of your own pool. And hey, it has a jacuzzi function included, what is there not to love? We stayed for 6 nights and found it really easy to get to the place and to get around, e.g. to Santa Marta, Tayrona and Minca. Wendy and Dylan are really nice people, and Akira (the dog) is gorgeous as well.

I had an absolute blast staying with Dylan in his gorgeous villa. Definitely stay for 2-3 nights if you can! He was a great host and super helpful in suggesting activities and places to go and things to eat in the area. Day trips to Minca and Tayrona are possible from here, and the airport is easily accessible. My room was beautifully decorated, spacious and clean, with a private bathroom. The room looked out over the ocean, and had spectacular views of the city and its stunning sunsets!

Villa Escobar is the perfect place for a nice relaxing vacation. The house is even bigger than it looks in the pictures, and it is situated in a lovely, quiet neighbourhood, not too far from the beach and close to other amenities. Dylan is a great host, always available to help with any questions that his guests may have. I highly recommend Villa Escobar to anyone interested in visiting Santa Marta.

We loved our stay. Highly recommended to all the airbnb family. Great views and an awesome place to unwind for a few days or a month. Dylan and Anouk are gracious hosts and the husky puppy is super lovely.

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.
