This is a one of a kind property! Located in the ancient city center of World's Heritage colonial Cartagena de Indias, this luxurious Pent House boasts 360 degrees magnificent views over the Caribbean and the most important City monuments, Castillo de San Felipe, Cathedral the University old Tower, etc, etc. The ocean is so near that you can hear the waves leaping the beach.

AMAZING FIND!!

  • 5 out of 5
This home is without a doubt one of the nicest places I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. The location defies description, with the Caribbean on one side and numerous historic sites in plain view from almost every direction. The massive outdoor space and smartly decorated interior, with mature plantings everywhere, and the unique position within the historic walled center of Cartagena, set this home apart from any other I have seen. The location is utterly ideal, just near the entrance to the city when arriving and returning to the airport and within easy walking distance to the main attractions in the heart of the historic district. The house managers, Adelaida and Rodolfo, could not have been sweeter and more accommodating. I've already told a dozen of my closest friends and family to put Cartagena and this unique home on their short list of places to visit!!

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 out of 5
I've been visiting Cartagena for many years and have known the building probably for as long and honestly, never expected the top floor to be such an amazing spot in the old city. Just The terrace is worth the trip: huge, great views, amazing breeze, comfy furniture... The interior is very clean and confortable 2 bedrooms. We had 2 ladies (Claudia and Angelica) always available for whatever we needed (one cooked the other cleaned) inclusive in the price.
In summary.... Great place to stay and definately going back!
Thx Alberto for keeping that magical spot 'open' to the world!

A HIDDEN GEM!

  • 5 out of 5
When you arrive to the front of the building, don't be fooled by appearances. We stayed at the penthouse with another couple and we were speechless as we walked in by how beautiful it is. If you want to have amazing views of Cartagena, this is the place for you. It has 2 rooftops overlooking all Cartagena, the ocean, the old city, and the new city. You can even see la popa and the castillo de san fermin!

You get 24/7 help from the sweetest lady named Claudia. If you make groceries, she'll pamper you on your stay and make delicious breakfast!

Definitely a 5 star!

THE place to stay when visiting Cartagena. We were a group of two couples visting Cartagena and we felt really lucky to have found this spot to stay while we were there. Chose this place because of the reviews posted here and we were not let down. Great view of the sunset on the huge patios, perfect location for walking to everything in the Walled City, crazy amounts of space and lounging areas, and Claudia and her helpers were outstanding. Owner was great to deal with while booking. Can't say enough great things about our stay. Highly recommended!!!

AMAZING PLACE!!

  • 5 out of 5
We recently stayed at Alberto's Penthouse and we were blown away by how beautiful it was! To begin with the outside space is unbelievable, you can have your breakfast in the many outside dining rooms- your choice! There is really NOT a bad view from the terrace! The house gets the breeze in from the ocean, so you get that constantly which is awesome! We never felt hot even inside the house. The rooms both have AC, so that was perfect. Claudia and Dilson were always on the property. Claudia makes delicious food (ask for the arepa de huevo! hmmmm), she made fresh orange juice every day too! We asked her the day we got there if it was ok to have breakfast at the house every day, and we would eat out the rest of the day. She was perfectly fine with that, and told us she would cook as much as we needed her to. So one day we did ask her to make something else besides sea food... she made us chicken and steak with rice and salad, her food is delicious! Dilson will always greet you with a big smile, and he's the one that will go get the fresh food from the grocery store. The house also comes with a massage table, so we asked and got a masseuse along with a lady that did nails on site. They got there on time, and we got our nails done at the house along with body massages- what else can you ask for!? Claudia also arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the house, he took us to Barranquilla and drove us back to the house and the end of the day. This couldn't be more convenient! Alberto we are coming back! Overall we will definitely recommend this place to anybody looking to go to Cartagena, we are already planning our next trip!

BETTER THAN DESCRIPTION

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I, along with her parents needed to find a place to stay in Cartagena for a wedding. We looked at many of the lovely properties along the coast in the new buildings, but decided to try Alberto's penthouse within the historic city,

As with all properties in the walled city, things from street level may not initially impress. But what we found at the top of the three flights of stairs was the most amazing oasis in the middle of paradise.

There is simply nothing to complain about. We were doubtful of the size of the outdoor spaces (claim to be 10,000 sqft), but I am sure they are actually larger. There are areas outside that we did not even get to use and we were here for eight nights.

I did read in some reviews that the pool was over rated. Well, let me tell you, we spent many a wonderful moment enjoying this sitting pool on the edge of the highest point of the condo. We watched locals move about their business, tourists enjoying this amazing city and the most wonderful sunsets. All from this wonderful small sitting pool.

The inside space is more than ample and is so clean. Alberto has wonderful staff on hand. Once we are home, we will certainly miss Claudia's bountiful breakfasts.

So Alberto - we could not say enough to convey our pleasure with your penthouse. Thank you for you attentiveness, you concern and speedy solution to the minor AC problem. We certainly knew from the outset, we were dealing with a professional.

Location

This property is located at the heart of the old city, within the ancient colonial walls, one block north of the Famous Santa Clara Hotel in the Historic Center. First front line from the Ocean which not only you see but you can also hear.

Other Activities: shopping, bars, restaurants and cafes nearby. Also there is a beautiful square right in front of the property where you can buy crafts and art in the famous 'Las Bovedas' under the ancient colonial historic walls right in front of the ocean. ON one of the sides of the square there is a very interesting museum, a church school and the old famous convent Santa Clara often featured in Garcia Marquez´novels and now converted into a 5-star hotel. While at the city center this property is located in Barrio San Diego,a residencial area and, though, restaurants, cafés and bars are nearby, the neighborhood still maintains the real character of the authentic Cartagena population that were born and bred in the area.
