I was born in Colombia and have been living in Washington DC for 30 + years.
Christian Gomez purchased this condo in 2006
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.
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.
Sr. Christian Gomez,
La presente es para agradercerle por toda su colaboracion y amabilidad con la estadia en su condo en Cartagena. Todo fue tal como usted nos dijo y "Iris" como se le renombro fue excellence anfitrona y su coloboracion con la familia fue total.

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.
Disfrutamos montones !!!!
El apartamento es cómodo , limpio , amplio, tiene una perfecta ubicación , vista a la playa y a la piscina , cerca de todo !!!!
Totalmente recomendado !!!!
Si volvemos a vacacionar en Cartagena nos quedaríamos de nuevo aquí !
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.
Great property. Location Superb. Communication with host outstanding. Ocean View exceptional. HouseKeeper Iraida made the best food I ever tasted in my life. Highly recommend. I cant wait to go back. debbie
Apartment was very clean, right on the beach with access to a great pool!!
Housekeeper is amazing breakfast was great every morning. Walled city is 5 min away, the condo was perfect I do not have a single complaint, I can't wait to come back.
Spent our second trip to Cartegena staying at this wonderful condo. Days at the beach and pool and evenings exploring Cartegena, it's an ideal vacation. Iraida is a wonderful cook and becomes part of the family. We miss her and her breakfasts. As our son lives in Colombia I am sure we will be back and would rent this condo again. One caveat, in our experience which consists of four trips to Colombia, visitng this country is easier with a Spanish speaker.
