I have a running list of 22 countries that I have either visited or lived in. I am highly particular about where I stay, and hands down this is one of the best places I've ever called home. If it is available, book it now before someone else does.
You will open up the door on the 32nd floor, say wow, then walk to the balcony and drop your jaw. What a view. Grab a glass of wine or a cold beer and sit out by the hot tub as the sun sets. It is beyond me why someone would book a hotel instead of staying here. Much better deal.
The kitchen is modern with everything you would need. The washer and dryer are top of the line. The bathrooms are spacious and the second floor bedroom has a great view of the city. WiFi is excellent. There is a land line for local calls and another phone for free calls to the US.
The location is perfect because you are about 5 minutes from old town by taxi.
Here is a tip: this owner also has places in Medellin located in Poblado. I've been living in one of them for several months. If your travel plans permit, I would fly Viva Colombia and stay at one of his places in Medellin.
On top of this penthouse in Cartagena being one of the best places available, you will not find a nicer, more genuine guy to work with on booking than the owner. This was my second trip to Cartagena. He happened to be there with his family when I was during Christmas. An 'abundance of kindness' does not even begin to describe my experience.
I read reviews religiously before booking on VRBO. I saw one guy from San Fran on here wrote 'Highlight of Our Trip' -- That nails it. Enjoy your stay and tell Amalfi hi.
