The magic of Cartagena is in wandering the streets of the beautiful colonial walled city. Choose our apartments and you are right in the heart of that magic each day of your stay!
We have three renovated apartments -- studio, one, and two bedroom -- which are on the second floor (walk up) of a two-story building in Cartagena's Walled City and are the only apartments in the building.
If you rent the studio and the two bedroom apartments together, you have three bedrooms and three full baths; one of the bedrooms is just down the hall from the main apartment.
Each of the bedrooms has a double bed; two of them have en suite bathrooms and one of these also has a balcony overlooking Calle de la Moneda – great for people watching while enjoying a cup of Colombian coffee or Club Colombia beer!

There is a door from the street with stairs to the second floor (there is a clothing store on the ground floor). You would share this door with the guests in the one bedroom apartment also. Guests will have the key to this main door as well as to their own individual apartment doors.
Once booked, guests receive a multi-page document and website (in English) with information on the apartments and Cartagena. I lived in this city for over two years and 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!
