Nueva York 20 sept, 2010

Fui muy afortunado en poder quedarme en esta maravillosa residencia durante marzo del 2010. El complejo está ubicado convenientemente, y es uno de los más prestigiosos de Colombia. Tiene detalles de terminación muy finos y amoblamientos de la más alta calidad con todo lo que necesitarás para hacerte sentir especial durante unas vacaciones en esta exótica y encantadora ciudad. El personal del complejo, que es un monasterio reciclado, fue atento y preparado para asistirte con cualquier cosa que necesitabas. El apartamento incluye una mucama muy encantadora y servicial, quien puede incluso hacer las compras y cocinarte. Los dueños también fueron gentiles y adorables. Sólo los encontré una vez al retirar una llave y me dieron información interesante sobre el sitio. Por otro lado, me dejaron sólo y fueron muy respetuosos de mi privacidad. El apartamento ofrece la más absoluta privacidad, y puedes pasar muchas horas de descanso en la piscina de la terraza observando el mar. No puedo dejar de recomendar lo suficiente esta residencia o la visita a la ciudad verdaderamente hermosa. Espero con ansias volver allí el año próximo.

Incredible Location With Authentic Cartagena Charm

  • 5 of 5
Pasamos una semana en este hermoso lugar con nuestros tres hijos de 10, 9 y 7 años. El apartamento es parte de un viejo monasterio que domina la vieja muralla que rodea la parte histórica de Cartagena. A sólo una cuadra está el hotel Santa Clara, que fue un viejo convento. La ubicación es muy segura y perfecta para familias. Hay tiendas, restaurantes y cafeterías a sólo una cuadra. Cuando buscábamos lugares para quedarnos en Cartagena, vimos algunos condominios de varias plantas en el área de Boca Grande, la que se encuentra a 10 minutos de taxi ¡Gracias al Cielo no nos quedamos allí! Los edificios de apartamentos son aburridos y sórdidos. La playa esta bien, pero el agua no es el agua clara que a la que estamos acostumbrados a ver en el Caribe o la mayoría de lugares en Méjico. Caminamos por la playa un día y fuimos inmediatamente abordados por vendedores que ofrecían sombreros, relojes, colares, masajes, servicios de peluquería, etc. Estuvo bien por una hora, pero comenzó a agotarnos la paciencia cuando el séquito nos siguió por la playa. No es necesario mencionar que no fue la experiencia placentera que habíamos imaginado. Los taxis son muy baratos - $5-$7 USD para casi cualquier lugar al que podrías querer ir. Estábamos tan felices de visitar la playa y regresart a nuestro pequeño santuario en Casa de Bocatillo. También vimos algunos apartamentos en otras partes de la parte amurallada de la cudad. De nuevo nos sentimos aliviados de que el destino nos hubiera dirigido a nuestra ubicación ya que otros apartamentos aunque adorables, habrían sido ruidosos debido al tráfico vehicular y de peatones ¡Los choferes de taxi en Cartagena tocan bocina frecuentemente! ¡Verdaderamente no podría imaginar otro lugar que aunara una mejor combinación de ubicación y tranquilidad! Una descripción de esta propiedad no estaría completa sin mencionar a Clari. Ella es la cuidadora y también prepara el desayuno. Clari es una excelente cocinera. También la contratamos para cocinar otras tres comidas. ¡Su plato de pollo es fabuloso!Her chicken dish is amazing! Los niños la asoraron y la consideran una de las mejores cosas en nuestro viaje a Cartagena. Por lo que sabemos ella no habla inglés !así que refresquen su español! Los dueños, Thomas y Jim, son accesibles a través del tel{efono gratuito Vonage a los Estados Unidos. Son también un gran recurso para recomendaciones de restaurantes ¡Gracias caballeros por una estadía maravillosa!

ADORAMOS esta propiedad, sacada de un compendio de arquitectura. Las fotografías no hacen justicia al espacio, techos altos, la ventilación y belleza de este apartamento en tres niveles. Los dueños fueron muy agradables y profesionales para tratar. El cuidador fue encantador, útil y un excelente profesional. Pasamos un excelente tiempo en Carta y esta ubicación hermosa tuvo mucho que ver con esto.

In a word, "Perfect"

In a word, "Perfect"

In February, our party of four traveled to Cartagena to scuba dive and we had the good fortune to stay in this home. It is beautiful, exceptionally well maintained, decorated and furnished, private, located in the heart of the "Historic District" and, as noted in other reviews, the pictures do not do it justice. The owners were easy to deal with, very accommodating, and full of helpful information about Cartagena (where to dine, tour, etc.). And, the "daily housekeeping" is performed by a wonderfully friendly lady who could not have been more helpful - a very nice asset to this home. The roof top pool is a terrific place to watch the sunset and provided our group with some views of Cartagena that we will never forget. All in all, this is what you want a vrbo rental to be - faithful to the billing, an easy "rental" process, and with no hidden disappointments. Hard to believe that there are better accommodations in Cartagena than this home. I have rented a number of units thru vrbo and, without exception, this one rates at the top. Our party will be returning to Cartagena again and we will time our visit to ensure that we are able to stay in this home.

One of my most relaxing, regenerative experiences to date.

  • 5 of 5
In August, my wife and I and 2 close friends stayed in this supurb casa.
Like one previous reviewer I have to agree that the pictures and the literature do not do it justice.
As far as vacation experiences go this was a complete standout. The house/accomodation had a genuine "old world" feel with all the convenience of contemporary living, and what's more, managed to achieve this with flair and idiosyncratic style.
Cartagena aside, this truely beautiful property is an experience in its own right. That aside we were provided with a treasure trove of local information, which proved invaluable in our exploration of this unique and exciting city.
The house as a facility, and the communal amenities of the "Old Convent" were beyond expectation, as was the inhouse food prepared on our behalf.
As holidays go, I would rate this as one of my most relaxing and regenerative experiences to date.

This wonderful work of art was one of the most fabulous places me and my family have stayed at. We flew all the way from our home in Mumbai as an adventure into a distant culture. It was so comfortable, and to say we felt 'at home' would be an understatement. The interiors were magnificent, each painting and each detail of things like the chairs and the mirrors looked like they has been thoughtfully been put together. The colours were so cartegena! Loved it!

The view from the top floor was also fantastic, and the rooftop barbeque & pool was a delight! Cartegena boasts of wonderful weather, warm people and some of the tastiest and most exotic fruit & cuisine we've ever indulged in. The hosts needs a special mention as they spoilt us with fresh fruits, juices, and some of the most interesting recipes we've enjoyed. They were so warm & gracious, taking us around to interesting spots they thought we would enjoy! They were like family!

Apart from this wonderful home, we must mention the magnificent complex that housed it. It was magical to enter into, with its pillars and stone and water, it was like entering a beautiful painting. We would most definitely return here given a choice, this was one of our most memorable holidays to date!

Magical, Elegant and Fantastic Location!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures and description of this house does not do it justice. Better than 5! The house is gorgeous, yet comfortable and homey too. We found that we spent most of our time on the rooftop, enjoying the amazing pool, and views of Cartagena, which included the ocean and a panoramic view of the beautiful old walled city. If you've ever been to San Juan, it will remind you of Old San Juan, but better. Cartagena is funkier, less crowded and definitely a place we would go back to. The food is fantastic, the people charming and it is not over run by tourists. We felt completely safe and free to walk anywhere with our 2 teenage girls.
The house is in a converted convent and not only has the roof top pool, but an amazing infinity pool(shared by the complex) overlooking the beautiful wall and next door to Gabriel Garcia Marquez's house. You do not need a car, as everything you need is within walking distance.
The housekeeper/cook was a delight and prepared the most amazing breakfasts with fresh squeezed juices and anything that you would want. The house and interior looks like it's out of Architectural DIgest.
We flew from NY and Cartagena is an easy trip.( wished we had stayed a few days in Bogata too--next time!) The owners make every effort to make your experience there memorable.

Cartagena is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located on the beautiful Caribbean coastline. Safely protected by a magnificent 500-year-old wall, this city earns its reputation as mystical, magical and spell binding. Colonial architecture, museums, centuries-old forts, cathedrals and pulsating plazas filled with restaurants, impromptu parties, and historic treasures offer an enchanting trip back in time.

Every up-to-date amenity has been seamlessly brought into the old city, so that visitors are never without the comforts and delights of a luxury vacation. The government of Colombia has made Cartagena a safe and exciting vacation destination. (Check out articles in the New York Times, Travel and Leisure, & Town and Country Magazine.)

A walk or candle-lit horse-drawn carriage ride through the cobblestone streets is the best way to experience the rich culture of the city’s history. Superb restaurants, museums, casinos, discos, shops and pulsating park plazas with local folk dancers.

Other Activities: Excursions by boat to Rosario Islands.
