Zona Norte Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5+ Baths, plus combo option

Large Corner Beachfront family apartment in the Zona Norte section of Cartagena. A short walk to the Hotel Las Americas. 205 square meters of lovely stone floor and whitewashed cement walls. Very private apartment only three apartments on the level. The apartment is located on the fifth floor, two floors from rooftop pool.


Starting in July 2016 we can offer an amazing combination of both ours and our neighbor´s even bigger apartment. A RARE total of 420 sf and 6 bedrooms and 6 baths and 2 half baths. See vrbo #814567 or Contact us for details.

It has a large living/room dining area, three bedrooms which each have their own full bathroom. There is also a guest half bath and a modest full bath in the maid's room which has a small twin bed.

There is a small enclosed t.v. room.

The building is very private and exclusive. Inside and out it is a very elegant, yet unpretentious environment. The building was designed using 'feng shui' principles and is unique among its counterparts. There are 24 hour security guards at the main entrance and garage and at the beach access entrance. The beach access area has outdoor showers.

We will only rent to families (no teenagers or young adults without parents) and no more than 8 total, no exceptions.

Rental includes daily maid (and cooking) service for 5 days a week.

Building is 5 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes from the walled city and 15-20 minutes from Bocagrande.

About Clayton Steele

We are a U.S./Colombian family with extended family in and strong ties to Colombia. It´s a very family friendly building, which we respect.

Clayton Steele purchased this condo in 2005

Why Clayton Steele chose Cartagena

We chose this building in the Boquilla section because we wanted a relaxing beach environment and an exclusive building with a strong neighbor/community atmosphere.

What makes this condo unique

Many activities nearby for children, wonderful neighbors. There are only approximately 40 apartments in the building, all are large family apartments and many owners are year round residents. This is a rental to bring your family or friends with their family and enjoy a comfortable, relaxing stay at the beach. The building management is very strict about enforcing noise and nuisance regulations. It is not a party or 'spring break' appropriate destination.

Maravillosa experiencia en Cartagena!!

  • 5 of 5

toda nuestra experiencia en el apartamento fue maravillosa, llegas y tienes un apto supremamente cómodo con una vista al mar inmejorable en una excelente ubicación, con la playa a unos cuantos pasos solo saliendo del edificio, la piscina en el ultimo piso fue el espacio perfecto para apreciar el atardecer o leerte un libro, en resumen lo recomiendo a ojo cerrado, te sientes en tu propia casa, debo resaltar la atención que recibimos por parte de la propietaria quien estuvo siempre pendiente de lo que necesitáramos en cualquier momento....sin duda volveremos!!

Beautiful apartment on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this property many times with both friends and family and have always had the best experience! Great location right on the beach, quiet and relaxed away from the bustle yet still conveniently close to the historic center. And have to love the infinity pool!

El lugar donde esta ubicado es mu tranquilo, además tiene una vista espectacular. La señora que esta disponible para atenderlo a uno es muy amable.

The Best of both worlds

  • 5 of 5

The condo is simply lovely! Gorgeous views, fresh breeze, conveniently located to both the walled city and the airport! We did not want to leave! The location is perfect since one can enjoy the beach and try some kite-boarding, if daring enough, in the morning and hop on a taxi and be in the historical beautiful town of Cartagena for lunch or afternoon coffee in 10 minutes (taxis are everywhere and affordable). Having a household help was wonderful as well! She would do shopping, cooking, and of course keep the place spotless! Our family of four (2 adults, 2 kids: 6, 12) loved it so much that we're planning to return to enjoy both this beautiful condo and see more of Cartagena and the surrounding areas! The condo is indeed very spacious and the wrap around balcony with the comfy hammoks is to dream of!

Spacious and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Two adults spent 10 days here and could not have asked for more. The apartment is spacious and clean, with a wrap-around balcony facing the water where you can enjoy hours of relaxation - what a view of Cartagena! The roof-top pool was never crowded and always clean. Having a maid was a bonus as she tended to all the daily chores including preparing lunch. No car is needed as taxis are inexpensive and readily available - just tell the security guard where you want to go. This location is east of the airport so is less congested, quieter, and has unfettered access to the beach. We did not experience much pestering from beach vendors as others have reported. We shopped for groceries at Carulla and Surti-Max both of which have decent variety. A taxi trip to the old city is a must (we paid 1200 Pesos each way). A private tour of most attractions can be arranged through Guianza Express (Walter) which we highly recommend. This location/property was so enjoyable we plan to return. The owner is accessible and is very good at responding promptly when you have questions. Other owners in the building are friendly and willing to help if you need it. The VRBO listing accurately describes the property.
