Maria Isabel Otalora is a Colombian citizen, who lives in Paris and works with UNESCO. Owns this apartment for her own use, and wishes to rent it in order to cover the maintenance costs. Looks for careful people, who want to discover and enjoy the marvelous city of Cartagena.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2010
Cartagena is one of the world's most unique cities, offering museums, historica landmarks, classical music festivals, theatre, excellent cuisine, lively nights, in a Caribbean atmosphere and tropical climate. We plan to spend two months per year there to enjoy the beauty of the city.
The apartment combines a perfect location in the old part of the city with in a modern setting and complete comfort, refined decoration and excellent services. The rent also includes half day maid's service.
The other reviews pretty much sum it up. Large one bedroom appartment. The housekeeper is lovely, and she cooks wonderful breakfasts each morning(you give her a shopping list and money when you arrive and she goes to the grocery store). The location is perfect. You can walk pretty much anywhere of interest in 10 or 15 minutes. Cartagena is just as safe as any other city. The bed is comfortable, and there is a large updated bathroom. The pictures the owner took of the place do not do it justice. I have no complaints. I would deffiantely stay here again. Cartagena is a wonderful city(just very hot). The apartment's ac works perfectly.
There's not too many ways to describe this little gem located exactly where you want to be when visiting Cartagena. It's quiet, full of light, very clean, the style is elegant... we stayed a week at this apartment with our two children (of 9 and 11), and even though it is just a 1 bedroom, we had plenty of space. The pools on the top of the building are a real treat after half a day outside in the heat, this place is like a retreat. In the middle of everything but enough isolated from the street to feel away from the urban buzz.
We loved SO much staying at Maria Isabel's place, during our first week in Colombia, that on our way back from Palomino, 2 weeks later, we booked an extra night. The kids still talk about it today, we wouldn't have been able to enjoy Cartagena the same way without this apartment, Nor without the amazing breakfasts, with fresh local exotic fruits salads and other local treats, Claribel, the very sweet housekeeper, prepared for us in the morning !... Claribel's cooking was "the cherry on the cake", as we say in French.
If you want to treat yourself, while discovering an amazing colonial town, just book this place, you won't regret it. Really.
The property was exactly what others have described: immaculate, tastefully decorated, comfortable, quiet, and secure. The staff- from the doorman to the maid were accommodating and friendly. The location of the apartment was perfect to explore the old city. Walking was our favorite mode of transportation-site-seeing, dining, and shopping all easily accessible. The airport and other parts of the city were just a short cab ride. The owner was easy to work with and available during our 5 day stay. The rooftop pool was a welcome addition-especially after a hot day of exploring!
Very well kept condominium with modern equipment. Staff from the front door to the maid (she will save me a shopping trip next stay!) were great. I also liked the privacy of the resort and layout. Only very minor comment is that there is no TV in the bedroom, which didn't bother me at all this trip but could when travelling with my teenage son. Maria was also very responsive when reserving, which I appreciated very much.
The apartment was exactly what I was looking for. There are many places where to stay in Cartagena, but this is the one. Inmaculate, secure,very safe , just what I wanted. You can't heard any noise from the street.
Also love the location, and the staff. Maria Isabel and Jasmina were very helful when I decided to stay more days at the apartment.
I already recommended this property to a relative, and am planing to go back next spring.
The apartment was perfect! Modern, immaculate, comfortable! This apartment made our stay!
Thanks to Maria and Diana!
