The space
(Review from a Guest)
Just a 30 minute boat ride away from Cartagena, I think that I have had one of the best vacations of my life. This idyllic home is situated on beautiful Cholon Bay where the water is crystal clear, warm and almost always as smooth as a swimming pool. The home is nestled under a thick canopy of tropical trees. Thanks to the shade made by the trees and the gentle breeze coming from the bay, the home and outdoor areas are always cool and pleasant no matter the time of year. The beach that is situated on the other side of the bay is just a three minute boat ride. Janer, the day to day manager of the house and official boat captain will take you there and pick you up and is always just a mobile phone call away. Now let me just say, that I have been to beaches all over the world, and the little beach that is on the other side of the bay from the house, without a shadow of a doubt ranks among the top 3 of all of the beaches that I have seen from the Carribean and South East Asia to Brazil and beyond. Amazing.....Cyrstal Blue Green Waters, surf as calm and warm as a bath tub, the finest of white and powdery sand, etc....The best thing of all is that this beach never has more than a few people on it thanks to the fact that it can only be accessed by boat! If you were ever looking for your own more or less private beach paradise, this is it..... Paradise..... In terms of the home, which is called Peñas Del Mar, we will call it Peñas for short, there is quite possibly everything there that one would need for a perfect holiday stay. The Peña family has lovingly outfitted the home with air conditioning in the bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, microwave and gas stove. There is high speed wifi (prepaid) to keep in touch with friends and family and, dare I say work....There is even Direct TV! For me it was the perfect combination of being far away on vacation but still in touch with the rest of the world. Baru is an island with very little infrastructure (which is a large part of its charm) , therefore a holiday stay at Peñas will require that you do your grocery shopping in Cartagena before you arrive. I purchased four days of food at Exito super market, in fact, I even over bought just to make sure that I would have enough options. This worked out perfectly, and the food that I did not use, I gave to Janer to take home and we were all happy with that! Of course, Peñas is also not in the complete end of the world, so if you ever run out of anything, Janer will take the boat round to Baru Town to pick up whatever you need! And of course, the local fishermen will always bring you fresh fish, shrimp, and lobster that they took from the ocean on the very same day that they sell it to you! Good Stuff! For those of you that enjoy self catered holidays, ocean breezes, lazy afternoons napping on hammocks overlooking the bay, private beaches and Pina Coladas, then Peñas Del Mar just very well might be the vacation of a lifetime! Thanks to the Peña family for making this wonderful experience happen. Rich Tallman/ Miami, FL.

Other things to note
I reccommend bringing insect repellent, sunscreen, sunglasses and a cap or hat. I like wearing a long sleeve shirt and pants at night and shorts during the day.
Light colored shirts seem to be fresher in hot weather. I also like to use sandals and sneakers at the property.

Love watersports like windsurfing, kitesurfing, diving and fishing. I also I like to use natural materials like wood and stone in for remodeling interiors. My favorite music is salsa. Feel free to ask me about Cartagena, my beautiful hometown. Bienvenido!
