About Christian Gomez

I was born in Colombia and have been living in Washington DC for 30 + years.

Christian Gomez purchased this condo in 2006

Why Christian Gomez chose Cartagena

I started coming to Cartagena on vacation since I was 4 years old. A lot has changed since then. A thriving historic center has emerged and declared historic patrimony by UNESCO. Music, literature and film festivals abound and new beaches have been opened to the public. Couldn't wait to own my own place in this city where I first fell in love and where my wife was born.

What makes this condo unique

This is a contemporary building, right by the beach with all the amenities one might need for a relaxing vacation. When I first saw it I couldn't believe the beauty of the ocean views that can be enjoyed from wherever you are in the apartment.

My Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

I have found my happy place, a piece of paradise, my better home away from home. Breathtaking views, comfortable, spotless condo, even more amazing in person. What can I say about Iraida, she is a gem, worth every pound I gained even after hitting the gym twice in a week. Christian was always within reach via e-mail, text or phone to answer every question prior to our stay.

Christian, thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful property. We will be going back. :)

I give a 9.5. Totally recommend

  • 5 of 5

El departamento es excelente, tal cual se presenta en la web, amplio, comfortable, bien provisto y super limpio. Una vista increíble! un placer sentarse en el balcón! Hemos tenido una estadía muy agradable, y muy bien atendidas por Iri. Solo tuvimos un pequeño problema con el calentador de agua que fue resuelto al otro dia.

Recomendamos esta propiedad!

Nice balance

  • 4 of 5

Loved the bright and open space and especially enjoyed the balcony. Beautiful calm mornings and then fun to watch the kite surfers in the afternoon when the wind picked up. Nice to have option of enjoying the beach and then when wanted a little more peace and quiet the pool. Only about 10 minute cab or Uber (when you can get them) ride to historic downtown.

Housekeeper kept the place very clean and helped w/ laundry. She provided some great meals also. Would recommend for families. Ok for 2 couples as we had but then one couple has to use bathroom across the hall. Would go back again.

After carefully choosing a place to stay, we contacted Christian through VRBO. Within 2 hours we had a reply. So far a good start.The rest was uphill. Christian was always prompt in replying to every and all of our emails. And his concern for making sure that we would be comfortable, he even took the time to call us to see if there were any other questions about our stay. I was impressed by that gesture.

Thank you Christian.

So many times pictures can be so deceiving. But walking into the condo we were so wowed. It was better than we dreamed. The view was breath taking, it was meticulously clean, furniture was clean and comfortable, bedrooms are a nice size with a comfortable mattresses.And the beach and pool were only steps away. There wasn't one thing we could fault. We knew that this would be an enjoyable stay. And that it was.

We all fell in love with the housekeeper,not sure of her name but we called her Edie. She truly was the best and hated saying goodbye when we left. Such an outstanding cook. We asked her to to fix regional food and it was always soooo good. Every morning she had coffee ready for us and served it on a tray with that warm smile she has.Really, she went out of her way to please us. Just thinking about her now makes me happy. This was a service we weren't expecting and what a nice surprise. Even tho I can't speak Spanish my google translator came in handy, and we were able to communicate just fine.

Christian recommended that we install an uber app on our phone, which we did and used it all the time. Much cheaper than taking a cap. The condo is located about 5 min from the airport and about 10 to 15 min from the Old City. We did go on a food walking tour the 2nd day we were there and would highly recommend it. Not only were we able to taste the local street food but also the guide gave us a history of the city. A fun 2-3 hours.

This trip to Cartagena was my first and I don't want it to be my last. I came with my 2 daughter and 2 grandsons. I lost my husband in August and we wanted to do something different for Christmas. As it turned out this trip was all about him. He would've loved everyrthing about this trip from the condo, the housekeeper, the atmosphere, and most surely the food. I came home feeling as tho we had honored him. What a good Christmas.

Thank you, Christian for allowing us to invade your home for a week. It was a joy to work with you and certainly would love to come back. You have a lovely home.

Great Apartment, Outstanding view, Christian communicated everything we needed to know.

Best part Irida the housekeeper is one of the best cooks I know, I realized to late that I should have asked what her favorite dish is and gotten the supplies so she could have made that, as it was we just purchased what we thought were staples and she kept putting together great meals from that.

Can't wait to go back.
