Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in El Centro - Casa del Capi $500 per night.

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 full Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

When we started on VRBO and Homeaway there was no one else doing it in Cartagena.

Besides being the best location and nicest most luxurious apartment in the old city we have many benefits to enhance your stay including airport pickup, fresh cut tropical flowers, and concierge service.

We have the best views of Cartagena for when you want to just hang out in the apartment.

There is a full time butler that services the apartment daily and you will never want for fresh clean linens and towels.

There is an optional cook for a very reasonable price.

There are 2 bedrooms with full bath. The main bedroom spans the entire front of the apartment and has a 30 foot balcony over the main street of Cartagena. The master bath has a huge shower with twin heads all tiled in corolina "Travetine" twin Morano glass sinks and plenty of closet space for your belongings.

The guest bedroom can be set up as twin beds or a king sized bed. A full sized bathroom adjoins this bedroom.

This lowers floor also houses the laundry, kitchen and servants quarters.

Up stairs there is another full bathroom and the entertainment area including a nautical bar, upper lounge area, front balcony and pool deck with a beautiful new coralina barbecue.

The front balcony is a superb place for sunset with the cupola of San Pedro Claver church right across the street.

Several photoshoots have been done from this balcony including JCrew plus a number of national TV stations have filmed from here.

The best way to get a feel for this magnificent apartment is to read the reviews and see what other travelers have said about their stay here.

If you want a luxury holiday where every detail has been taken care of for you this is the place to stay.

About Greg Hills

I am an Australian ships captain working on megayachts so I know what luxury is. I purchased this property and did a complete reconstruction to make this the nicest user friendly place for my home.

Greg Hills purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Greg Hills chose Centro

Its dead center of Cartagena. You can't get more central. It has absolutely the best views with stunning balconies overlooking all the major attractions of the city.

What makes this apartment unique

The best city views from 3 balconies, absolutly the most central location, private large rooftop jacuzzi. Great security. luxury, Luxury, luxury.

There is not another apartment that offers its visitors a better experience. We are dedicated to helping you with your vacation from meeting you at the airport to helping you with tours and excursions. Its our goal to make your stay a memorable one.

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a Gem. The house is centrally located in a safe section of the historic city close to all activities and restaurants. The staff was extremely friendly and nothing but helpful. The property looks and is exactly how described. The owner is very responsive and clear in communication. He made our stay very easy. I would also recommend hiring the cook, we did for all four days during our stay, and everything was delicious. We would stay again in a heartbeat.

Enjoy!

Best place to stay for so many reasons!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted at the airport and brought to this amazing jewel in the center of all the activity in Cartagena. My daughters were excited that they could get their daily crepes and waffles fix because it was right next to our house! The whole staff is amazing and is able to anticipate and meet our needs. Fanny was wonderful at organizing day trips for us and went above and beyond by finding us someone to make Cumbia dresses for our daughters. Jorge was a great guide to the city and helped us with our day to day needs. The food was excellent! We were blown away by the beautiful accomodations! We were very sad to leave this jewel and hope to return soon!

Amazing place to stay in Cartagena!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was absolutely awesome! Great/comfortable apartment with all the amenities you need in an ideal location. The best view of the city, great ambiance and roof top patio and jacuzzi. The hospitality was amazing; Jorge took care of everything even before we thought to ask for it. Also highly recommend to hire the cook for delicious breakfasts and great lunches and/or amazing dinners! If you are going out to dinner Jorge can recommend some great places too. In addition, Fanny was a great help to suggest and organize a few day trips. It was a fabulous experience in a beautiful city.

Thank you Greg for a wonderful stay in Cartagena!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great property in the perfect location. Gregory was attentive before our trip, and Jorge was very helpful and friendly during our stay. Apartment was clean with nice layout (bedrooms/kitchen 3rd Floor, living room/patios Top Floor). We really enjoyed our time relaxing in the rooftop plunge pool/jacuzzi listening to music from excellent sound system.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Gregory's flat was the perfect accommodation in Cartagena! It exceeded our expectations! It is ideally situated in a beautiful part of the city, with magnificent views from multiple directions. It was spacious, immaculate, and well appointed. We loved to retreat back to the flat during the warmest time of the day to enjoy sitting in the rooftop pool or relaxing in the air-conditioning. Jorge was delightful! He arranged our transportation, cleaned daily, prepared breakfast when we needed it and even washed and folded laundry. We had a terrific vacation and hope to return to Cartagena. We would highly recommend this flat to anyone! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us Gregory.

Beautyful roof top Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights in this very comfortable, best located flat.

Thanks to the butler we didn't have to care for anything. There is an amazing chef who takes care for breakfast any time you are ready for it. It is very safe.
