We are a U.S. family with extended family in and strong ties to Colombia.

Clayton Steele purchased this condo in 2005

We chose this building in the Boquilla section because we wanted a relaxing beach environment and an exclusive building with a strong neighbor/community atmosphere.

Many activities nearby for children, wonderful neighbors. There are only approximately 40 apartments in the building, all are large family apartments and many owners are year round residents. This is a rental to bring your family or friends with their family and enjoy a comfortable stay at the beach. The building management is very strict about enforcing noise and nuisance regulations. It is not a party or 'spring break' appropriate destination.

EXCELLENT FAMILY CONDO

  • 5 of 5
My husband, myself and our 4 children (ages 12, 10 and 5) spent a month in this condo. We were looking for something family friendly, and we chose this condo for its location (out of the heart of the city but an easy taxi ride to the sights). I was immediately impressed with the size. We never felt crowded! The living area is really spacious (much larger than the pictures suggest). All of the rooms are fairly large, which afforded everyone their own quiet space (which greatly reduces bickering). There is ample outdoor space and the views are fantastic. My husband and I took every opportunity to sit in the hammocks and enjoy the sea breezes.
The beds are comfortable, but if you are a couple that "spoons" you might want to bring your own king size sheets to eliminate the crack between the beds. The condo is otherwise very well equipped with a/c, hot water(not always a given!), ample kitchen tools and plenty of beach towels. The pool is on the small side, but again, the views are unbeatable and there were several days we had the pool all to ourselves. My kids were thrilled to have the beach and the pool so close at hand.
While I was somewhat unnerved by the prospect of a full-time maid, I quickly began to appreciate her services. My husband and I started out trying to decide what to shop for, but we finally ended up just giving her the equivalent of our weekly food budget and left the shopping to her. She is a fabulous cook and we ate like kings! She happily incorporated more veggies into her traditional meals and her fresh fruit juices were always eagerly anticipated (lulo and passion fruit were our family favorites). Whenever we went out to eat, my kids complained that the food wasn't as good as what we ate at "home".
The owners are easy to work with. They were responsive and helpfully suggested cab fares, and places to take the kids (gelato in the Old City is not to be missed!) This was by far the most relaxing vacation I've had in a long time. I feel blessed and lucky to have found this condo. We couldn't have been happier.

WONDERFUL APARTMENT OVERLOOKING THE OCEAN

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from a two-week stay in this amazing apartment. This was our first trip to Colombia and the apartment exceeded our most optimistic expectations. First, the location. The flat is in the Zona Norte section of Cartagena, so you are only a $5 cab ride into the Old City—and you have an expansive, mostly empty, beach right in front of you. The building itself is lovely, lots of stone everywhere, very well maintained, with an infinity pool on the top floor. It is also extremely quiet, which was very important to us as we are light sleepers. The front-desk guys will call a cab for you any time you need it—I don’t think we ever waited more than two minutes for one to show up—and the Old City has tons of taxis for the ride home. The flat is amazing—enormous for two of us, but I think it would be very spacious even for six. It’s very comfortably furnished, and has a huge terrace. The flat also comes with a maid, which we initially saw as a problem, not being used to a maid at home. How wrong we were! The maid is more like a housekeeper, a lovely Colombian woman who quickly fit into our routines, made us breakfast and lunch every day (and dinner too, if we weren’t heading into the Old City for dinner). She also did our laundry and kept the apartment spotlessly clean. We felt we had the best of all worlds: the comfort and privacy of an apartment, with all the services of a hotel (including a wonderful personal chef). The owner was incredibly helpful, answering my many questions as we planned for the trip. I know Colombia still has a shaky reputation for safety among some people, but we felt completely safe everywhere we went, even strolling around the Old City at night. We have stayed at many VRBO properties around the world, and this is at the top of our list.
