Very nice condo, well stocked, absolutely spectacular views from the balcony. Owner was courteous and helpful.
BEWARE: THERE ARE EXTRA CHARGES that you pay when you arrive -- about $36 for two people. The charges are described in the write-up, but are not part of the advertised price.
We recently spent 5 days in the condo. It is well situated in the Castillogrande area near Bocagrande. It is easy walking distance to several restaurants and stores. There is a beach very close. There is a great walking path a block away and the area felt very safe. It was a nice retreat from the bustle of the centro which was a 15 minute cab ride away.
The condo itself was very comfortable and easily accommodated 4 women. The balcony was a lovely place to watch the sun set and rise. There was air conditioning in all the rooms and living area. The washer and dryer is a huge bonus. We spent some time at the pool, which was relaxing and quiet. There is also a breakfast area next to the pool for a charge, however, we did not use it.
The condo had the basics, but not much more. Towels were provided and one roll of toilet paper per bathroom. There were no paper towels and only 1 set of kitchen towels. Coffee maker, cooking utensils, microwave, etc. I wouldn't consider it a well stocked kitchen for a true cook, but it worked for basic meals, etc. We did not have to contact the host for any reason, but she let us know early on she was available if needed.
The only recommendation I would add is to provide a guide of some sort with regard to what is nearby like restaurants, stores and basic info like tips for taking buses or cabs. It helps other travelers, especially those new to Cartagena.
