Weekend in Cartagena - 4.5 Stars
Weekend in Cartagena - 4.5 Stars
The owners of this property were a delight to deal with. They responded to all my inquiries very promptly and made sure to have their caretaker waiting at the property upon our arrival in Cartagena. Our experience was for the most part extremely positive. I wish there was a 4.5 star ranking because that is what I would prefer to give. As for the pros: the apartment is perfectly located in the Old Town of Cartagena. It is only steps from Cafe del Mar (gorgeous eating and dining spot overlooking the waterfront) and a very short walk to the principle spots in old Cartagena. This location couldn't be better. The unit is in a very secure location with 24 hour security on site. The unit itself is beautifully decorated - minimalist and a great balance between modern comfort and old world elements. The unit has three bedrooms (one being a huge master with a stately en suite bathroom, two smaller bedrooms with twin beds - shared bath). There is also a half bath downstairs near the kitchen and main dining/living area. The terrace is lovely and spacious and has a view of the water. Overall, the unit was very clean and a housekeeper visited during our stay. Cons: Only two of the 3 bedrooms have A/C. When we visited Cartagena it was extremely warm (more so than usual) and we couldn't use the bedroom without A/C. Also, the owners had briefed me beforehand that things like toilet paper and paper towels tend to "walk away" in Cartagena and I was more than fine renting the unit knowing that we might have to supply ourselves with soap, TP, etc. I hate to even list this as a "con" because I agreed to such a scenario. The only reason I will is because for the suggested rental price, this is a luxury unit (and lives up to that reputation) so basic disposable provisions should really be included. Again, though, the owners were more than upfront about this circumstance and we rented the unit on short notice. There were more than plenty of towels, sheets, pillows, cups etc. Lastly, there was only one key for the unit. This served to be a problem on several occasions as you could not unlock the deadbolt from the inside, therefore, at various points over the weekend someone happened to get locked inside the unit. Or, if we didn't coordinate well enough someone was locked outside. Overall impressions - Perfect location, beautifully decorated, well maintained, clean and secure. Just need to fix a few very minor things.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: My husband and me we have been married for 12 years. Every year we go to Cartagena to spend the holidays with my family, which is from Colombia. Ever since I can remember a lot of our vacation would end up in Cartagena. Is a city full of history and the weather is fabulous. Although is humid, the breeze that covers the city in the late afternoon is fresh, crisp and clean.
