                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We are a U.S. family with extended family in and strong ties to Colombia.

                  Why the Owner Chose Cartagena:
                  We chose this building in the Boquilla section because we wanted a relaxing beach environment and an exclusive building with a strong neighbor/community atmosphere.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Many activities nearby for children, wonderful neighbors. There are only approximately 40 apartments in the building, all are large family apartments and many owners are year round residents. This is a rental to bring your family or friends with their family and enjoy a comfortable stay at the beach. The building management is very strict about enforcing noise and nuisance regulations. It is not a party or 'spring break' appropriate destination.
