                            Let me start with that we were hesitant renting this condo after reading a recent negative review . Even called the owner to ask about the conditions.. He assured us that everything was fine so we went ahead and rented it. And we are happy that we did rent ! Air conditioning worked , apartment was clean , hot water worked , washing machine worked . Everyting was in working condition ! There was a funny smell when we arrived but that is expexted in the hot and humid tropical climate . Opened the windows and doors and it was gone in a minute.... Did find a few small bugs and ants during our stay that we had to spray but I suppose that is expected in the tropics even in the best buildings. Initially the remote controls were a bit confusing for the AC units but we learned quickly how to operate them. I suggest the owner clearly marks which controller controls which unit. When we arrived we did have to go shopping to buy paper towels , shampoo , detergent for the washing machine and shower gel for the showers because they were not provided but I suppose that is customary when you rent an apartment. I think this is a great apartment to stay in Cartagena ! You are a two minute walk from the shops and restaurants of Bocagrande and you are on the Beach with great views of the ocean.. You will have to go shopping when you arrive to stock up on things ! Highly recommend this apartment to all fellow travelers ! You will love it ! We did !!

                            The apartment was nice and clean , well equipped. Excellent location and view. We did have to figure out how to work the air conditioning units with the remote but that wasn't too bad. Handsoaps and toilet paper were provided , but no shampoo , liquid soap or paper towels or washloths were there. We were able to buy those by walking to one of the nearby stores. Kitchen had everything we needed. Some of the plates and pots were not brand new but clean - that is expected I guess..I think an apartment in Colombia is more for an independent traveler. Someone who needs everything provided by staff would be better off in a hotel.

                            Owner response: Thanks for the nice words. I agree , the apartment experience is better for an independent minded traveler . Someone that will go down to the local store and stock up on needed supplies. I cannot offer hotel type services . Those that need hotel type amenities should stay in a hotel.

                            The location of this building is nice, close to everything, Cartegena was a fun city. The communication with the owner was good, he was very responsive. We should have seen a red flag, once we made final payment we were emailed a list of instructions/deficiences.... The water heater may not work, the AC unit is tricky, etc.... Well, once we got there things didn't work. The water heater was not a big deal (uncomfortable but we managed) as the temperture stays around 90 degrees. But the broken AC was a big deal, it was the one in the bedroom, the owners pre-directions got it running but it never got cool. Lots of things in the unit have been neglected, Kitchen sink faucet, couch was lumpy with broken springs, ants everywhere, broken dishes, etc.... the unit had a musty/moldy smell to it, the good news is it forced us to be out and about in this beautiful city. The Wifi did work and that was nice. We had family that stayed in an older condo next to this building and they had a nice place, older but clean and nice. We did all of our cooking there and even swam in their pool. The pool associated with this unit was layed out nice, but once again not clean.. The staff did clean it on Monday but it did not keep up with the volume of guests. It seemed this building is mostly daily and weekly renters so it was always crowded, long waits for the "high speed" elevators. We felt mislead, we never met the contact lady-manager, when we arrived, there was no toilet paper and the towels provided seem dirty and paper thin. We had to do a late night run for toilet paper after traveling all day, not fun. My wife immediately washed everything including the bed sheets as we suspected they were not clean, We left messages for the designated manager "Ingrid" and finally on the thrid day we got some towels - more paper thin ones and two rolls of TP. My wife and I love camping and we know how to rough it, but we were thinking this was going to be a litlle nicer based on the photos and the descrption on the website. The photo were probaly taken when this unit was new...the place was run down. The owner probaly needs to go their personally and see exactly the condition of this unit. It was probably nice once, but now it is uncomfortable, run down and dirty. No disrespect to the owner but we wanted to give an honest assesment, so travelers can make up their own minds.

                            Owner response: You are the first of dozens of families who stayed at the apartment who had a negative experience. You wrote that the apartment smelled funny. Cartagena is in tropical climate. Apartments do smell funny when you arrive first time. Just open the window for a few minutes. You found small ants in the kitchen. They are everywhere in the tropics. All you need is a bug spray and they will be gone. Don't leave food out at night. You wrote that the the pool was too dirty for you and too crowded. I guess it is not too dirty for all the people who swim in it making it crowded... You wrote that there were lines at the high speed elevators . The building has a lot of people in it because it is a great place. Would you like a building that nobody wants to stay in ? You wrote that the AC did not work. We checked it immediately and it works fine. You probably could not figure out how to use the remote control. You wrote that the water heater did not work . We checked it immediately and It works . You probably could not figure out how to use it . Nobody before you had any problem with using the AC or water heater. You wrote that the towels were too thin. Thank you for your observation. We got thicker ones. You found no toilet paper when you arrived . This may have been a mistake my manager made . She will be more careful in the future. You wrote plates were broken. Not the case .They may be chipped because the apartment is very popular and a lot of tourists from all over the world vacation in it. We replace broken plates and glasses immediately. You wrote you did not meet the manager when you arrived. That was because you arrived after 11p.m. We made arrangements for your late check in but she could not be there personally that late. Sorry. Pictures were taken August 2011.I go there every 6 weeks and check everything personally. You wrote that the owner was responsive. Yes I did respond to each of the more than fifteen emails you sent me with various questions before your arrival. If you had problems during your 10 day stay you should have emailed me at least once . I would have helped the best of my ability.

                            What could be better than a week in Cartagena with your two best girlfriends? We arrived on March 26 and was quickly escorted to our magnificent apartment on the 26th floor of the building! Talk about views - this has it all! Great balcony overlooking the beach and from the rear you can see the bay with boating and the Boca Grande sky scrapers! The apartment was clean and had everything we needed to make our trip absolutely FUN! This apartment is close to everything - within walking distance to shops, grocery store, pharmacy and restaurants galore! We loved the city - what a romantic city to visit! The kitchen is well equipped and we were able to eat some of our meals in. I highly recommend this property for anyone visiting Cartegena. The owner is very accessible and always responded to my inquiries very quickly and gave us great suggestions for the city. The security of the building made us feel safe and everyone was very helpful and friendly. I took advantage of the spa services and we spent a day at the pool, which is awesome! You can't go wrong with this apartment! I highly recommend it as it has location, cleanliness, amenities, and security as well as location, location, location!

                            We arrived later than expected to the apartment however once we phoned the owner's manager she was there in 10 minutes to show us into the apartment which was exactly the way the pictures show it on VRBO . Clean towels and toilet paper were there for us to use. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed which we appreciated because we like to cook. Walked to the nearby grocery store often and made breakfast which we ate on the balcony with a great view ! Loved it ! We like to take some rest during the day and since we were on the 26th floor we had no noise bothering us from below which we greatly appreciated. We would rent this apartment without hesitation in the future again !

                            First of all we had a great time in Kaz 's apartment. Kaz was very helpful before our arrival providing us with detailed information on the apartment and arrival logistics. His manager met us at the lobby and helped check us in , showed everything we needed. The apartment is very nice and clean just like on the pictures. Each bedroom has oceanview windows and it's own bath. Enjoyed the pool and used the gym a few times. We could walk to the old town . The beach is right there , the water is warm , however there are too many vendors selling stuff. Overall we had a great experience , would recommend this apartment to anyone !

                            Hola ! I visited Cartagena several times and rented various apartments at the beginning than I discovered this building right on the beach with gorgeous pool, perfect location and spectacular views. I stayed there 10 days with three friends and the apartment was very comfortable for all of us. It has very good size living room, kitchen/dining and big bedrooms with individual bathrooms. And we loved the balcony with the unblocked view of the Caribbean see. This apartment is furnished with high end furniture (unfortunately it was not the case at the other apartments I’ve rented before) The kitchen is well equipped too. Restaurants, shops , supermarkets all are in a few minutes walking distance what I found very-very convenient. It is located on Bocagrande just a short 5 min taxi drive from the Old city. Over all we loved this apartment, booking was very simple and the owner is extremely accommodating and friendly. Highly recommend to everybody renting this apartment while visiting Cartagena. I will return for sure.

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: I am university graduate professional who lives and works in the USA. I enjoy traveling worldwide and discovering new cultures and places. Cartagena is one of my favorite places to visit.

                          Why the Owner Chose Cartagena:
                          I decided to purchase in Cartagena because I travelled to Cartagena several times renting at different apartment buildings. After staying at Palmetto I liked the beachfront location and luxury of it so much that I realized I could not stay in other places , so I decided to buy. Cartagena has a large , well preserved walled old town dating from the 1500-s . It is a unique place not found anywhere else in the Americas. It also has beaches and the caribbean sea which is always warm here. I like windsurfing which is great here since there is always some wind. You can rent windsurfing and other watersport equipment on the beach. The weather never gets cold. So it is a perfect vacation location. Warm weather and sea all year , historic old town with dozens of nice restaurants and bars . Bocagrande is the perfect location for me because you get to enjoy the ocean the oceanfront pool and enjoy oceanview from your balcony ! What more can you ask for ? Lots of nice restaurants and shops right behind the apartment on Ave. St. Martin !! I love to walk in this city. It is safe and there is always something nice to see. You can take daytrips to the Rosario Islands that are right off the coast of Cartagena.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          Full ocean view from the balcony and living room. Directly on the beach. Ocenview pool. Gym. Turkish Bath. Only 4 year old building . Close to Old Town. MiniSafe to guard your valuables like passports , wallets , etc.. 3 plasma tv-s with over 70 cable channels. High speed wifi internet in the apartment. Washing machine in the apt. Laundry service , Cleaning service and spa available at extra cost.. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. A local representative to assist you.
