BEST FURNISHED UNIT AT PALMETTO. Top of the line luxury 2 bedroom beachfront. It is furnished tastefully, with high quality furniture, artwork and top of the line appliances. Truly UNIQUE in this building. If you are going to Cartagena, Bocagrande is the place to stay. Preferred method of inquiry is by phone. Please - NO SPAM INQUIRIES, SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY, your time and my time is valuable. While my typical renter desires the unit for 7 days or more, I will rent for shorter periods of time for near term bookings. Edificio Palmetto is centrally located in Bocagrande, just minutes west of the Old Walled City (World Heritage City) by taxi. This unit is one of the newest on the market, furnished with high quality furnishings, American queen size beds, pillow top mattresses, comfortable L-shaped sectional in living area. February, 2011 removed the stereo and replaced it with a Vizio blue ray player (for CD's and DVD's linked to 46' LCD wall mounted TV (new October, 2012) by HDMI cable. Cable TV in primary living room. Cable, Internet and Local Telephone Service. Currently November, 2012 Vizio blue ray TV's placed in each of the two bedrooms. Plays CD's and DVD's. Security safe in closet in one of two bedrooms. You are renting direct from owner, not an agent.

Unit has large refrigerator, microwave, oven and 4 burners on cooking surface. Unit has NEW on demand hot water system and it works (replacement unit October, 2012). Always inquire if you are looking at other units about their hot water systems. Both baths are full baths with shower. More than adequate dishes, utensils, pots and pans for those who want to cook. Washer and Dryer added to unit September, 2009. Local Phone and internet. If you are comparing my unit to others in this building, look at the comparison photos. This unit truly is the best furnished unit in the building, except the top floor penthouse.
Cartagena is an incredible city. In fact, Colombia is an incredible country and its citizens are friendly and unassuming. Spanish is not a must, but is extremely helpful.
The recent film, Love in the Time of Cholera was filmed in Cartagena; years back, Romancing the Stone.
The old walled city allows one to wander for days, viewing incredible architecture, world class shopping and great restaurants. To get a feel for the real Colombia, visit the old city and surrounding areas. To the west (by boat) you will find an island chain that has incredible aqua marine water, perfect for snorkeling or just boating. Many tour operators run to the islands or you can do as I do and rent a boat and leisurely cruise the islands and visit a variety of beaches (Playa Grande, Rosario Islands).
I was fortunate several years back to visit Cartagena with natives of Colombia. I was enchanted not only by Cartagena, but by other cities I visited, including Bogota. A visit to Cartagena and a stay in my condominium/apartment will allow you to relax and return home with stories to tell. You will be compelled to return as soon and often as you can.
Should you stay in my unit, I will provide as much insight as I can about Cartagena, the surrounding community, the building and my unit.
The unit is not restricted to adults (although that is my preference) however, Cartagena is probably more for adults than children. I require photo id in the form of drivers license and passports from all occupants. As I rent my unit frequently, payment is due upon the making of reservation; minimum 7 days rental (for near term booking, will now rent for shorter terms - inquire). Arrangements for keys can be made in a variety of ways, depending upon where you are traveling from and time and date of arrival. Typically, I send keys to you prior to your departure from your home city.
Others who rent in this building will rent to up to 9 people in a unit. I limit my unit to a maximum of 4 responsible individuals, no large families.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: Professional active male; light hearted, enjoys life. I was introduced to Colombia and Cartagena by dear friends, both from Colombia. Well educated professional with a love for life and meeting and interacting with new people from all over the globe. I hope our paths shall cross.
Why the Owner Chose Cartagena:
I visited Cartagena with two wonderful friends, both Colombian. They actually took me to a number of cities in Colombia as well as introduced me to the wonderful people of the country. I found Cartagena to be interesting, the people warm and friendly and the weather incredible. On the property next to the hotel I was staying, a trailer was on site and the developer was advertising units for sale. I was fortunate that the real estate company that was marketing sales of the units to be build had one english speaking sales person, and I was able to negotiate a contract long distance with her assistance. I don't regret my purchase at all.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
First and Foremost, you are dealing with a thoughtful owner, one who in furnishing the unit and maintaining has considered the comfort of others who might later occupy it. Before and while at my unit, I am available to answer questions and guide you as best I can, either in preparation for your trip or while you are already on site. In the morning have coffee on the balcony as the sun rises or walk on 2nd to Juan Valdez Cafe (the Starbucks of Colombia). Juan Valdez is a great people watching place. The unit is furnished with high quality furnishings and has after my viewing of some other units in the complex the best furnishings in Palmetto, with the exception of the penthouse. Full size, not Colombia size queen beds, custom drapes from the United States, custom fabric from the United States for the living room sectional sofa, chairs for the beach, an umbrella for the beach, a wide array of towels for the chaise lounges at the pool. For those who go to the beach, beach towels and an umbrella you are free to take from the unit and use at the beach. Excellent building security and management and friendly staff. Bocagrande is the place to be (the Old City is to be visited but in my view is not the place to stay) and this unit is central to Bocagrande, on the beach and within walking distance to everything in Bocagrande.
