Welcome to one of the most interesting residential complexes of La Candelaria, featuring unique architectural details and a large luscious garden. We are artists, designers and architects, that live and work here in this beautiful compound. We welcome you to stay in our voluminous loft home, Casa Efe.

The space

Our homes that we offer on airbnb are not just places to rest, they are destinations in themselves! Unique architecture, and a huge and tranquil garden is what makes our homes a unique airbnb option.

Guest access

The garden is full of sculptures, ponds, pathways. You are welcome to meander and enjoy the garden space. Soak up the sun in one of the two stone patios or sit on the steps inside the lush green.

Just please, keep noise to a minimum, as our art and studio spaces are scattered about and is where we work.

Interaction with guests

As we grow this airbnb experience, I am beginning to realize that I really love to host and love to be involved! Since we live and work here, and are very proud of our beautiful garden and homes, we love to talk to guests about the space, share occasional coffee in the mornings.

But of course we love, and need, our quiet time too, so we can concentrate and focus on work. After all, it is our private home and workplace.

This is a very nice unit in a compound of buildings designed by Stef and her partner. She gave us a very interesting tour of the spaces and was super helpful throughout our stay. Thanks Stef!

Stef was a great host. She gave me great recommendations for the area before arriving, and when travel plans changed she let my girlfriend check in before I got there. The dogs were cute, the space was beautiful, and the bed was super comfortable.

Impossible to get a better location than Stefana's Casa Azul. It was in the Candelaria on a quiet one way street on a steep hill giving you a full view of the city below. The entrance is super discrete it almost feels entering the Batcave. at the top of the driveway you're greeted by a legit jungle habitat that has replaced several acres worth of downtown real estate! The entire estate is a labor of love and you see it in every architectural curve, edge and detail of each building. with these awesome private homes tucked away in the edges it feels like you're "en el campo". Our space was rustic(but very comfy)and airy with a BIG bathroom with a nice large shower and gorgeous skylight. No TV(i.e. calming) but really fast internet. There is a wonderful fireplace that made it a cozy hang out when it was slightly chilly at night. The bed is a King I think and very comfy. Outside you're super close to everything. Uber shows up right outside and the location has a lot of UberEATS nearby. Really good location, felt super safe always. A beautiful Rhodesian ridgeback lives on site she's sweet, graceful and the princess of the house. I Stayed two days and ended up staying another two days. Just fell in love with the place. ***for joggers*** Really good running if you just stay along the bottom of the hill running parallel with the mountain heading North. Take a right at on Circonvular Sur and run past Monserrate's cable car entrance and be rewarded with wicked views of the city to your right as you circle back around to 10th St(calle). 3.5 miles, occasional mountain inclines>20 degrees.

Several times already I stayed in Bogotá. But this time was by far my best experience! And a lot of it had to do with our stay at Stefanas place! They have some completely independent houses build up in a huge garden in the most beautiful part of old Bogotá. You have your own nice kitchen, a cosy fireplace, great breakfast in the morning and the architecture is simply amazing! They'll give you a tour around the premises and they do it with a lot passion. You can tell! 10 points to you Stefana and Simón! Take good care and thanks so much for everything! Martine, Lucien & Pieter-Jan

Stefana's place was magic. This property is not only beautiful, it is unique, private, one-of-a-kind, and if it was not a private compound of a famed artist and architect, it would be a tourist destination. This compound has been under construction for over 40 years and is now complete. You will miss a once-in-a-lifetime experience if you do not stay here while in Bogota. The family is wonderful, make you feel at home. Thank you Stefana and Simon!

The house with the chimney is part of a larger complex of houses built by a well-known Colombian architect in Bogotá's oldest neighborhood, the Candelaria. After staying here for two nights, I'm pretty sure this is one of the most spectacular urban sights that I've visited in Latin America. The house is surrounded by lush gardens, and it's a perfect spot to retreat from central Bogotá's hustle and bustle. Stefana and owner Simón are very kind and will share information, knowledge and, if you're lucky, also their food. I hope to be visit them again sometime soon, I'd highly recommend this place!
