Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I am originally from Colombia and now live and work in the New York area as a structural engineering technician. My husband is a Interior Architect and we both love to travel. We visited Colombia in 2005 and my husband fell in love with the Architecture, history and friendly people of Colombia and decided to make Cartagena our dream retirement home some day. In 2006 we purchased our first condo and in 2007 we started our vacation rental business which has been a dream come true. Our 3rd condo will be completed soon and we are very excited to add it to our Starferrer,LLC vacation rental family. STARFERRER, LLC is licensed in the state of New Jersey; certified by the Ministry of trade industrial and tourism in Colombia to assure quality of service. We offer quality vacation apartment rentals in Cartagena directly from the owners. We are a privately owned and operated company with a team of members dedicated to providing excellent service for business and family vacations. We look forward to having you as our guest.

Why the Owner Chose Cartagena:
Our apartment is beautiful and located just minutes from the entertainment, dining, bars and casinos. Shopping for everyday items and just across the street and is open late. Just 15 minutes from the old city and 10 minutes from the airport with 24 hour security. One of the most important thing to look for when choosing a vacation rental apartment is to make sure that the vacation rental is registered and certified by the Ministry of trade and tourism in Cartagena. We are proud to say we are. This is a very important Law in Cartagena to protect Tourist from scams. All vacation rental apartments in Cartagena are supposed to follow it, so if it is not mentioned then they are probably not.
