This is a well-maintained, high-end vacation home with deluxe amenities that will surprise and delight all visitors.

All kitchen amenities, fixtures, furniture, and techologies are in excellent condition and top quality - you will not be disappointed.

The pool area is the jewel of the property and you'll find yourself spending most of your time here.

The property manager is very helpful and readily available.

It's clear she is working with the owner to continuously improve the property and keep it in good form.

One week was simply not enough.

Hope to see you soon again !!!

Great property close to everything in the old city

  • 5 of 5

Working with Galindo was pretty simple. Communication was very good and the person on site to get us into the property was very accessible and accommodating. The property was new, well cared for, clean and overall a great place to stay. Staying in the old city gave us walking access to everything. This is not a complaint about the property, but rather a caution ... get a map of the old city and KNOW where you are staying. The streets can be a little confusing. When in doubt, hop in a taxi. We would definitely stay at this property with this owner again. Thanks Gallindo!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleasantly surprised with this rental. It is within the walled city, steps from the wall and the view of the ocean. The rental was very clean and well supplied with towels and linens. (The only negative is there are few pots and pans. Our friends needed to bring their own in order to cook a true Colombian meal for us.) We overlooked the pool which was perfect for laps and the deck was a great spot for yoga. The condo is within walking distance to 2 grocery stores and several very good restaurants. Irene, our contact person, was very easy to work with. She was very prompt with meeting us at the condo for both our arrival and departure. She was easy to reach via Whatsapp and responded within 15 minutes to a message I sent about not having hot water. No sooner did she respond to my message than a service person turned on the hot water heater. The people who worked on the grounds and the guards were very friendly. A security guard is at the entrance 24/7. I felt very safe at the condo and within the walled city. I would return here without a second thought

Magnificent. Be sure to stay here when you visit Cartagena

  • 5 of 5

Esta es una propiedad fantástica. La ubicación es perfecta y el complejo de condominios es genial. Es ultra moderno con un toque colonial, si logran fundir esas dos ideas. Al entrar al complejo uno siente que entra a la vieja Cartagena, da la impresión de viajar en el tiempo. Luego examinas cada servicio, y hallas más de los que ofrece un hotel moderno. La cocina es hermosa, el baño es ultra moderno; tanto el dormitorio como el living tienen balcones que dan al patio. Hay una piscina de buen tamaño, gimnasio y área social. ¡LIMPIO! Tengo una cierta manía por la limpieza y este condominio resultó ser perfecto. Dicho todo esto, tengo que mencionar que el dueño tiene una paciencia de santo. Tuvieron muchas dificultades para ubicarme y no respondí a tiempo: el dueño fue muy amable y me dio alojamiento.

Much better than an Hotel****

  • 4 of 5

Este es nuestro segundo viaje a la encantadora Cartagena. La última vez nos hospedamos fuera de la ciudad amurallada, tomando taxis de aquí para allá. Esta vez paramos dentro de la ciudad amurallada. Cuando llegamos, tuvimos la espera imprevista de nuestra anfitriona Irene. Por suerte, teníamos para entretenernos a nuestra amiga que se hospedó en el apartamento que está dos pisos debajo del nuestro. Estaba estudiando allí y fuimos a visitarla. Finalmente nos comunicamos con Irene, que es una dama encantadora. ¡¡¡Hacía CALOR!!! Hubiera sido genial que nos hubiera esperado con una bebida refrescante, pero... al entrar a nuestra unidad, estaba limpia, fresca y era muy acogedora. Teníamos un lindo espacio, agua caliente, lavarropa y secarropa, lo cual era óptimo. La propiedad era adorable. Se la recomendaría a cualquiera que visite Cartagena. ¡¡¡La pasamos genial!!! En el futuro, podría probar su otra propiedad... Gracias nuevamente.
