We have three renovated apartments (studio, one, and two bedroom apartments) that can be rented all together to accommodate up to 12 people. They 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.
By renting all 3 apartments, your party would have the second floor of the building to yourselves. This arrangement would be great for a group of friends, a large family, or a couple of small families traveling together.
The studio & one bedroom apartments can combine to become one 2-bedroom/2 bath apartment (with balconies!)--in this configuration the studio becomes essentially a master bedroom with en suite bath & private balcony.
You then essentially have two 2 bedroom/2 bath apartments with each of these apartments sleeping up to 6 guests (or 12 guests total), i.e., 4 total bedrooms, 4 total baths, two living rooms (each with sofa bed; one with balcony), and two fully-equipped kitchens.
The balconies overlook Calle de la Moneda and are great for people watching while enjoying a cup of Colombian coffee or Club Colombia beer!
*Balconies overlooking Calle de la Moneda--great people watching!
*Two living areas, each with lounge seating for 4-5, sofa bed, TV
*Two dining areas, each with table seating for 4
*Two fully equipped kitchens with counter seating
*Total of four full baths with rain shower heads
*Four bedrooms each with TV: one bedroom with double bed, balcony & en suite bath; one bedroom with twins or king & en suite bath; two additional bedrooms with double beds & adjoining baths
*Hot water in the shower and sinks -- not all places in Cartagena have this!
*Air conditioning (mini-split in each room)
*Fans: ceiling and floor
*Wifi/Internet (DEDICATED BROADBAND!)
*Towels: dish, hand, bath & beach
*First aid kit
*Extra single portable mattress
OPTIONAL SERVICES (at additional expense):
*Colombian meals &/or cooking classes in the apartment
*Housekeeping during your stay
*Tour guide services
This arrangement would be great for a group of friends, a large family, or a couple of small families traveling together.
There is a door from the street with stairs to the second floor (there is a clothing store on the ground floor). Guests will have the key to this main door as well as to the individual apartment doors.
Once booked, guests receive a multi-page document and website (in English) 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 smaller place (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 La Vecina in the Boquilla section of Cartagena & would love to have your help!
We look forward to having you!
