Beautiful home in a beautiful icty

  • 5 of 5

This home is in the perfect location of Cartagena located within the walled city. It is right on the ocean directly across the street from the hot spot for getting drinks with a view. Everything is walking distance or a 7,000 peso (about $2-3 US dollar cab ride). Sandra's place is located within a secured and gated community. There were four girls staying total and there was plenty of room for us in the three bedrooms. The first floor has the kitchen and living room. The bedrooms and bathrooms are on the second floor up a spiraled staircase, and the rooftop terrace is on the third floor. There are air conditioning units within the bedrooms, but not throughout the rest of the house. Cartagena is a hot city, so we did not get much use out of the living room area. In addition, you cannot take warm showers (the power in the entire apartment went out when we did this), however the city is so hot, you likely will not ever have the desire to take a warm shower. Milena, the house keeper, comes every day to every other day to keep the place clean. We paid her to cook a traditional Colombian meal for us one night and it was spectacular! Another bonus is Sandra's connections with a boat captain to take you to the islands. We took a private boat (instead of going on a group trip with travel companies) to the islands off the coast of Cartagena. The captain took us to the more private and smaller islands, which were so much more beautiful and serene than Playa Blanca (the large party and touristy island the companies will take you to). I highly recommend doing this during your stay in Cartagena. Overall, I definitely recommend this townhome and a trip to Cartagena - its beauty will amaze you.

A lovely and charming place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in this charming and colorful apartment. The location is fantastic right by the Santo Domingo Church and walking distance to the main tourist attractions in the historical center of Cartagena.

I particularly like the pleasant feeling of "home" in the apartment with nice decorations carefully selected and the colors typical of Cartagena, bright and bold colors yellow, orange, blue, etc. The terrace located in top (3rd floor) level has an incredible view of the muralla or wall of Cartagena as well as a view of the ocean. The beds where great in each room.

The kitchen is fully equipped and we were able to cook several meals there. The only suggestion I have is to provide the first "botellon" or big bottle of filter water for the dispenser. Also provide the instructions to buy it the next bottle for 10.000 pesos providing the money to the security guard in the front porch. Then you pick it up and put it in the water dispenser. I would recommend this apartment in Cartagena. Gracias or Thanks Sandra.

Beautiful townhouse and great location in walled city

  • 3 of 5

Great town house but the supplies were lacking. For 6 people there were only 6 bath towels and 3 hand towels in the whole condo. No towels for the sink. Only 3 rolls of toilet paper for 6 people for 5 days. Ran out by Saturday. That was totally unacceptable. The bottled water dispenser was almost out of water when we arrived. I assumed it would be replaced. Not so. You must arrange to have more delivered and pay for it..We were not advised that was the case. This really is a nice property in the walled city but not managed properly. I would stay again but be advised to stay on top of the amenities that are promised in the write up.

Centric with a perfect view

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular location within the Old City! The townhouse is a few steps away of the Santo Domingo Church, just across the street from the Café del Mar and the wall, and close to all the restaurants, boutiques and historic landmarks Cartagena offers. Although not fully renovated, the house is very clean, well kept and tastefully decorated; the kitchen is totally furnished and the beds are really confortable. Sandra was very helpful with answering all our questions and her housekeeper, Rosa, was very cooperative too. In addition, the area is nice and safe and the condominium security is excellent. 10/10, would recommend!

Wonderful location-nice spot for a small group!

  • 5 of 5

We were a goup of 6 spending four nights in this lovely apartment. We found the apartment to be spacious, clean and comfortable. It is a bit older than the photos suggested to me, but I found it to be charming and perfect for a group where everyone can have their privacy as well as lovely communal spaces. Each guest receives one towel and there is a hair dryer available. The location could not be better and the security is very good. You can walk anywhere from the apartment, but if you choose, taxis are readily available right outside the gate. The only confusion we had was getting water for the water cooler, and perhaps this was due to a language barrier. The bedrooms are all nicely air conditioned. The rest of the apartment has both ceiling and free standing fans. Sandra, the owner, was wonderful to deal with and she even contacted us during our stay to make sure all was well. There is a housekeeper available who is very sweet. Some knowledge of Spanish is helpful in speaking with her as well as security. I would recommend this apartment to anyone who would love to have a safe, pleasant stay in this colorful city.
