The magic of Cartagena is in wandering the streets of the beautiful colonial walled city. Choose the Moneda Apartments (studio, one bedroom, &/or two bedroom) and you are right in the heart of that magic each day of your stay. The apartments are located on the 2nd floor of a two-story building (a clothing store is on the ground floor). In this listing we're highlighting the one bedroom apartment, which is ideal for a single person, a couple of friends, a couple, or a small family. You'll love sipping your glass of wine or morning cup of Colombian coffee on the balcony while people-watching and getting a true taste of Cartagena life!

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 smaller or larger place, or if you’d like to book multiple apartments (parties of 1-12 can be accommodated), please let me know. 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! Thank you! Barbara Smalley

                                                                  One of the best locations to stay with family

                                                                  My husband and I booked a stay for us and 2 kids in the 1 bedroom apartment through Barbara. Its a great location as its close to pretty much everything. Great people watching from balcony but no noise after 7-8 PM. Barbara and Benjamin was very communicative and super helpful. Plenty of space, light and renovated kitchen/bathroom. Definitely recommend for any families with young kids.

She was very prompt to answer any questions,and her first hand knowledge of Cartagena was very helpful. Henry the "onsite" manager is a great asset.It was reassuring to know he was close by,and more than willing to offer assistance! The apartment is very comfortable,and it is in the absolute best location to explore the "Old City"!

                                                                  Super clean well managed property, great location!

                                                                  This was my second trip to Cartagena. Both trips I spent at this property. This apartment is super clean and well maintained. I have recommended it to friends and in fact a friend travelling with me stayed in the studio. You book through Barbara who is a wealth of info (having lived in Cartagena) she answers all questions promptly and even sends info on events of interest while you're there. Also she is dedicated to helping the less fortunate in the area. The manager Henry lives near by and I think he knows everyone in the City! Take a tour with him and/or go to the market. He will go out of his way to help you with whatever you need.

                                                                  Centro (El Centro, Cartagena de Indias, Bolivar, Colombia)

                                                                  These apartments are located in the San Diego section of the magical Old City of Cartagena, within the 500 year old Spanish colonial walls. Colonial architecture abounds! The building is on Calle de la Moneda, which is a busy and lively street during the day but quiet at night. As the main public transportation hubs (for buses and shared taxis) are a couple of blocks straight down this street, Calle de la Moneda is widely used by Cartageneros as they go to and from work, school, etc. (and to shop!). You are in the heart of “real” Cartagena on Calle de la Moneda! The street is lined with shops and a couple of small, inexpensive restaurants. Just about everything is closed by 8 pm, however, so you’re not disturbed by noise during the night. At the far end of Calle de la Moneda is the Exito department store which sells everything from groceries to electronics plus has an ATM. One street away in the other direction you'll find the popular Juan Valdez coffee shop and the main University of Cartagena building. And a block around the corner is the beautiful Parque Fernández de Madrid surrounded by plenty of nice restaurants and cafes. Churches, museums, other shops, bars, the old city wall, and the Caribbean Sea are only a few blocks away. You are within close proximity to everything here! Walking is the best way to get around the Walled City – it’s great wandering the maze of quaint streets. But you are never far from the surrounding walls so you don’t have to worry about accidentally straying too far! If you are in a hurry or want to venture outside the walls, taxis are inexpensive and easily flagged on the street. We are a 5-10 minute/US$4 taxi ride from the airport, and a 5-10 minute/US$2-3 taxi ride away from other sites/areas, such as San Felipe Castle (the huge old Spanish fort) or the tourist dock (for the boats to the Rosario Islands, where many prefer to go for the beach), or the beaches of Bocagrande, Laguito and Castillogrande.
