Property description

Enjoy a newly built apartment and your own private rooftop terrace with beautiful ocean views fanned by the Caribbean breeze. Ideally located in the heart of the historic old city within the walls that once surrounded a Viceroy's compound. You will be enchanted by the splendor of the sea and the charm of the colonial streets full of magic and color. The owners have 20 years experience in the hospitality industry and know how to provide the comfort you deserve.

Within walking distance of historic sites, fine dining, lively nightlife, the convention center, Pegasus pier, the Heredia theater, shopping malls, five star hotels and just 10 minutes from the airport, Bocagrande and the beaches.

Perfect for honeymooners, couples and families seeking to spend a memorable vacation or executives attending an international convention.


The complex has two swimming pools, one just for adults and another for the children, a fitness room, two indoor Saunas and three Jacuzzis with one located on a shared terrace with sea and sunset views. The tropical gardens are cool and relaxing with the peaceful sound of falling water.

The apartment is located in the most exclusive area of Cartagena, providing peace, tranquility and relaxation. The complex has a full security system with closed circuit cameras and a receptionist 24 hours a day.

La Casa del Virrey Eslava is one of Cartagena?s most significant historical sites and has retained it?s 17th century colonial facade. Renovated in 2009, the complex is completely modernized inside without breaking the harmony of its historical value. This was the residence of Viceroy Sebastian de Eslava who commanded Spanish colonies from here as the king?s appointed Viceroy of New Granada from April 24, 1740 until November 6, 1749 .
