Overview

About the property

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, we can arrange airport pickup for a very reasonable price. Fresh cut tropical flowers, and concierge service are included.

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, about US$15 per day and if you have her stay after 5pm to serve dinner an extra $5 for transport home.

The pool deck is private to the apartment, you do not share it with anyone. The pool is small and you certainly can't swim laps but it is a great place to refresh on a hot day while taking in the views of Cartagena.

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 lower 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.

The $400 per night is for up to 4 people. For more than 4 people contact me for a quote.

Perfect Vacation Property.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time here. This place is an oasis in the best part of town and my only complaint is that I cant give it more stars. The property is so beautiful that we enjoyed hanging out there just as much as touring the city. Jorge was great to have around and really made the trip for us, and Billys cooking was better than most meals we had out. The only thing I feel like I can add to the endless 5 star reviews of this property is a review of the 2nd bedroom. We were two couples traveling together so the question of who gets the master bedroom was a big decision and I didn't see it mentioned by anyone else in much detail. Have no fear, the second bedroom was just as good as the first, just a little smaller and slightly less lavish. It had its own bathroom and was actually much quieter than the master, which is on the main main street, so the 2nd was easier to get good sleep in. I actually preferred the 2nd bedroom for those reasons.

A wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

The walled city of Cartagena is a pedestrian paradise on a very human scale. Our apartment was at the lower end, clise to restsurants and shops and with a glorious view.

Perfect location, fabulous home and exceptional service!

  • 5 of 5

Jorge, Fanny and Billi are wonderful. The house is in the heart of the old city and walking distance to all sites. I recommend visiting the Fort as well as wandering old town. La Cevicheria can’t be missed. Playa Blanca and Isla Baru definitely can be missed!

Greg is great to work with and very responsive, answering my many questions. Thank you.

BEST LOCATION IN CARTAGENA!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautifully appointed apartment. The location is

definitely the best in Cartagena with amazing views of the San Pedro Claver church from every balcony. The apartment is very spacious and furnished with taste and many collectibles. We couldn't wait to get back to our retreat after our daily touring. The evenings were magical with this old architecture all lit up. The sounds of horse drawn carriages and the soulful sounds of the saxophone player on the street below contributed to making this a truly unique experience. Greg, Fanny and Jorge were always very helpful in making our stay enjoyable.
