The magic of Cartagena is in wandering the streets of the beautiful colonial walled city. Choose one of our renovated apartments (studio, one bedroom, or two bedroom) and you are right in the heart of that magic each day of your stay.
In this listing we're highlighting the studio apartment, ideal for a single person or a couple (or two very close friends!). The highlight of this renovated studio apartment is that it has a balcony! There is a little bistro table where you may sit overlooking Calle de la Moneda, a street widely used by pedestrians, and people watch while enjoying a cup of Colombian coffee or Club Colombia beer!

This apartment is one of three located on the 2nd floor of a two-story building (a clothing store is on the ground floor); they are the only apartments in the building. There is a door from the street with stairs to the second floor which guests of the three apartments share. Guests will have the key to this main door as well as to their own individual apartment.
Once booked, guests receive a multi-page document and website with information on the apartments and Cartagena. I have lived in this city for more than two years, traveled around Colombia quite a bit and would be happy to answer any questions or give advice via email or phone prior to your trip.
Upon arrival in Cartagena, our multilingual (Spanish/English/French) apartment manager will meet you at the apartment at the agreed upon time to let you in, show you the place, and give you keys. Should you have a question about the apartment or you want tourism assistance, laundry service, a cook or cooking class while there, feel free to ask him!
If you’d like a bigger place, or if you’d like to book multiple apartments, please contact me. This studio apartment is for 1-2 guests, but it can be combined with one bedroom apartment next door to make a two bedroom/two bath unit for up to 6 guests. There's a separate two bedroom apartment listing for a quieter apartment in the back of this same building. You can “mix and match” the various apartments to accommodate up to 12 people, all in the same floor.
We partner with 'Pack for a Purpose', an organization that links travelers who'd like to help fulfill wish lists of non-profits in developing countries. We work with community organization Fundación Pescador de Letras in the Boquilla section of Cartagena, plus Cartagena Paws, supporting street animals, & would love to have your help!
We look forward to having you!
