It's unimaginable how different the photos are in comparison to the awful reality. The only good thing I can say about the place that was correctly advertised is that it is well located, next to the beach and a supermarket. We dealt directly with Jonathan so he didn't have to pay VRBO commission and he gave us a discount on a two and a half month rental. Other than paying the first few days through VRBO we paid the balance directly to his account in The Netherlands.

The apartment was terrible, run down and neglected. There is a 50+ floor building being remodeled 10 feet from both the jacuzzi/dining area and bedrooms. We awoke almost every morning between 7:00 and 7:30 to a symphony of jackhammers, electric saws and the workman's elevator.

The photos with ocean views were either taken years ago or they were photoshopped. The apartment is surrounded by taller buildings and beside the veranda are two HUGE industrial fans that supply air for the Shopping Center. The jacuzzi has been broken for months and is covered. The veranda is protected from falling debris by a tin roof and ratty netting that the construction company installed.

The AC in the bedroom was broken. The AC in the living room was freezing and would not shut off. Jonathan called the AC company and 8 days later they changed the unit in the bedroom but living room AC remained broken.

The apartment was filthy when we arrived and the sheets and towels were smelly and wet. The pillows on the bed were sofa cushions stuffed into pillowcases so we bought new pillows. Jonathan had a woman come in to clean and she came regularly twice a week after that.

Light bulbs were burned out in every room including the lamps and were never changed. The TV in the bedroom worked but the screen was so scratched it was difficult to see the image.

The kitchen was poorly equipped with just a few mismatched pots and pans with no tops and with scraped off teflon floating in everything we tried to cook. The kitchen lacked rudimentary items like salt, pepper, sugar and cutting knives. There is no microwave. Only the broiler worked. The oven was supposed to be fixed but like the jacuzzi, air conditioning, Internet, DVD and light bulbs it never was. The door of the cabinets was falling off. The kitchen disposal was broken and a horrid stench emitted from inside. Jonathan had the door put back on and the disposal fixed but it still didn't work. The Master bathtub was disgusting and we never used it.

Great place for a relaxing stay in Cartagena !

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this apartment for a month While working in Cartagena and I can recommend it to anyone who wants a nice, clean apartment with beautiful views close to beaches, restaurants, shopping etc. I especially enjoyed the possibility to have a barbecue on the patio as well as taking a bath in the Jacuzzi ! Friendly and helpful staff and the owner was nice to talk to as well as very helpful. I will definately try to stay here again, next time back in Cartagena !
