Comfortable and Charming!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the apartment. It was perfect for two couples visiting Cartagena for a wedding. Private, large beds, clean updated bathrooms, great location you couldn't ask for more. The rooftop is small, but quiet. The mini private pool on the first floor is clutch after a long day exploring the city. The pool stays cooler than expected and is truly refreshing. Carlos was easy to work with and very responsive.

What a fabulous apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself, and our 18 year old daughter absolutely loved our stay. The location is perfect and the apartment feels like a sanctuary when you walk in - especially welcoming after walking around the city for periods of time. We loved having coffee on the patio in the morning and loved the rooftop with the views and ocean breezes in the afternoon/evening when we weren't out and about. Carlos was always wonderful to work with and responded quickly. We would highly recommend this apartment. The bedrooms are on the 2nd and 3rd floor with the rooftop on the 4th floor. Not a problem for us at all, but something to consider if you have mobility issues. Thank you Carlos!!!

Wonderful Retreat Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in numerous high end apartments/condos in various countries, and this one ranks as one of the best. In my first trip to Cartagena, I found my home away from home. The location is superb, just inside the wall and easily accessible to all taxi drivers. It's a great starting point for walking around the walled city, with a coffee shop a block away, two supermarkets within walking distance, great shopping and restaurants nearby as well. Carlos (owner), Libia (property manager) and Luz (cleaning lady) were all accessible and wonderful to work with. The owner responded quickly to all questions and checked in via text throughout our trip to ensure everything was going well. The property manager was accessible as well, and gave me her daughter's contact information to help translate my English requests. Luz was very friendly and went to the supermarket on a couple of occasions and cooked us breakfast for a reasonable tip. The apartment building has 24 hour security, and the guards were all friendly and helpful when hailing cabs or getting directions.

The apartment layout can't be truly appreciated from the pictures, but it's location directly inside one of the main entrances to the walled city is great. The living room and kitchen are spacious on the ground floor, and the plunge pool is a great way to start the day or cool off after a day of exploring. Both bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious, and effectively exist on their own floors, which is great for privacy. They both offer nice views of the courtyard. The rooftop offers beautiful views of the city and ocean, and is a great place to relax at night. Whether it's smoking a cigar, enjoying a beer or relaxing in the Jacuzzi, you can't go wrong. The lighting in this apartment is wonderfully done, showing a great attention to detail by the owner, and the wireless internet was strong the entire time...which can be a worry at other locations. I will definitely return to this location the next time I return to Cartagena! Thanks to Carlos and his staff for their hospitality!

amazing apartment in old city

  • 5 of 5

the pictures do not do the apartment justice. It is a beautifully furnished and well kept apartment. It is in a beautiful complex with 24hour security. The caretakers- Libia and Cindy were always just one phone call away if we had any issues. Of note, there are 4floors of stairs- no elevator for those with disabilities.

Super casa para arriendo

  • 5 of 5

Solo tengo buenas cosas que decir acerca de esta casa y de las personas que me atendieron. La descripción del lugar es acertada con la realidad. La casa contaba con aseo todos los días para mantenerla limpia y presentable. Recomiendo alquilar esta propiedad ya que su ubicación es excelente y el estado de la casa es impecable. Muchas gracias por todo y esperamos poder volver a pasar unos días de vacaciones en tu casa.
