Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I am a native of Santa Marta but left as a child and have spent the majority of my adult life in the States. I always longed to go back to Santa Marta when I retired and in 2004 I was able to make that dream possible when I purchased this condo while it was under construction. Therefore I took part in the design while it was being built. It has been my second home and I take pride in it's care.
