Guestbook comments from the owner

Let me just say that the accomodations and the location was the most amazing experience EVER! We were in Cartagena for my nephews wedding! The views in this penthouse were breathtaking! It was also very nice that I was able to make my nephew and his new bride dinner and 7 others as well! The shopping, beach, cafes were all within walking distance. It is 6000 pesos to get to old city! Very easy to get around the city! I can't wait to go back to Cartagena and I will definately book this condo again!

Great location

  • 5 of 5
Location was perfect - near beach (can actually see and hear the surf from the bedroom!), good restaurants walking distance, friendly people in area, easy to get a taxi to old town. Area of beach (to left walking out) that has a bunch of beach activities like jet skis, boats, wild ski board thing, water taxi to island, and restaurants on the water. Small convenience store right in building plus a larger one right across the street. 24x7 building security as well but thankfully didn't seem like an area that needed it.

Room - very clean and bright with lots of windows and a sliding door allowing the ocean breeze in. Everything was in working condition and modern (ie, not someone's dumping ground for their old junk...new functioning stuff) including an Apple TV and WiFi that was pretty fast. We like cooking in sometimes and were able to do so with the full kitchen.

There were only 3 of us staying for the week, but could easily see it comfortably accommodating more - especially with 2 full bathrooms. Also nice to have a washer there so you can pack less clothes and just do a load of laundry during the stay.

Very relaxing area and calming stay for us - top floor so you don't hear the road noise and people chatter.

Good Apt, well located

  • 4 of 5
The appartement was well located, near the Hollywood beach and not too far from the castillogrande beach. Great view. Easy to take the cabs from there, to go to the old city. (about 10 minutes)

The only thing that we did not like was the furniture in the living room, it was very old and not in a good state... we could barely sit on the couch.

The kitchen and bathrooms are modern and clean. Air conditioning only in the rooms, not in the living room.

Best place to stay in Cartagena

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place to stay for a week-long getaway break to sunny Cartagena. The apartment is not your average rental apartment. It's clear the owner put a lot of time & effort into making the apartment feel like a home for visitors to Cartagena - panoramic views of the ocean, very comfortable lounge, balcony & bedrooms. Fully equipped kitchen for dining in or just fixing a snack.
I would strongly encourage you to book in and feel at home when you visit Cartagena!

3 Days not long enough.

  • 5 of 5
We spent a fantastic few days at this luxury apartment. What a surprise to enter the front door and see the sweeping views and incredible light. I had not seen any photos prior to arriving in Cartagena, and I was blown away by the apartment. The apartment block itself is quite established, and one of the older ones in the area, but the apartment itself is very modern and tastefully decorated. We were literally on top of the world looking down on the sea, the other apartments and the views back towards the city. The location too was great for any beach lovers, just a minute walk to the beach. The apartment itself has a great big living room with large windows and a lovely terrace to enjoy the views. A fully equiped kitchen allowed us to eat in, whenever we were not out sampling the lovely restaurants in the town. A cheap taxi ride brings you to the Walled City of Cartagena, and I would highly recommend you come here in the evening, even if it might be tempting to stay in the apartment. There is also a swimming pool on the ground level, but we didnt get an opportunity to try it out. Overall, a great location for our stay in Cartagena, I just wished we could have stayed longer.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this amazing apartment for just 3 short nights (wish it could have been longer!!) and loved it. The apartment is modern, in easy walking distance to the beach and shops and a short taxi ride to the centre. The front desk guys were really helpful and the view from the apartment was just amazing. The air con in all the rooms was greatly appreciated! Will definitely be back, for longer next time.

Great Apartment. Nice Decoration. Beautiful View.

  • 4 of 5
We, a family of three, spent a week in this beautiful apartment, tastefully decorated and with a splendid view of the sea and the bay. The photographs shown faithfully reflect the beauty of the place and its environment. Santiago, the owner, was always ready to respond quickly and flexibly to our requirements, as well as his manager in Cartagena, Edgar, who also owns the local grocery located inside the building and supplied us daily fruit and other foodstuffs. The building in which the unit is located was in the process of modernization of the elevators, which will make it even more pleasant the arrival to the penthouse, floor 25. The city offers the perfect mix for an unforgettable holiday: the pleasure of the sea and the beauty of the historic walled city. Restaurants everywhere. I recommend a vacation in Cartagena and stay in a place as beautiful as this.
