  • Description


    Is a house on the coast that needs little detailed finishing projects. to be taking care of. It's 5-10 walking minutes off the kite surf beach.. The view is amazing. We're in a really calm area, on top of a hill, hidden in the woods. It's a spiritual place, good vibes and sweet energies.

    Our Casa is a magical place and an architectural jewel, situated on a hill in between a rural landscape, that combines the Caribbean sea and the dry tropical forest. The house was built 2 years ago, when the host lady Angela had the dream of moving out of a big city to be close to a natural environment every day.
    The beach is only 200 meters away and easy to reach by foot. The house offers a big roof terrace to hang out, enjoy the ocean view on one, and the hillside on the other side, to attend spectacular sunsets, as well as sunrises or stargaze at nighttime. It's a spiritual place, good vibes and sweet energies. We're at the end of the construction at the moment and need a lot of hands un carpentry, clean up, painting and gardening!
    We're located between Cartagena and Barranquilla, on the main road. Close to Santa Veronica where you can find anything you need.
    There are two friendly dogs and 1 puppy living with us, 2 cats and 4 small turtles.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I speak Portuguese, English and Spanish. I've been an anthropological teacher for 10 years. If you like you can visit a volcano where you float in mud, an incredible place called Chorro de San Luis where you can swim and jump from a big rock into the water, beautiful Cartagena and you can visit the local sites of artisans or just head to the beach if you are looking for refreshment and great sunsets.

    You get a bed in a dorm with 2 beds. You also get coffee and tea if you like, but you have to care for your own food. There are some shops around the house and we will drive to Juan de Acosta or Santa Veronica for bigger shopping tours.
