About the Property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 full Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

When we started on VRBO and Homeaway there was no one else doing it in Cartagena.
Besides being the best location and nicest most luxurious apartment in the old city we have many benefits to enhance your stay we can arrange airport pickup for a very reasonable price. Fresh cut tropical flowers, and concierge service are included.
We have the best views of Cartagena for when you want to just hang out in the apartment.
There is a full time butler that services the apartment daily and you will never want for fresh clean linens and towels.
There is an optional cook for a very reasonable price, about US$15 per day and if you have her stay after 5pm to serve dinner an extra $5 for transport home.
The pool deck is private to the apartment, you do not share it with any other facility. The pool is small and you certainly can't swim laps but it is a great place to refresh on a hot day while taking in the views of Cartagena.
There are 2 bedrooms with full bath. The main bedroom spans the entire front of the apartment and has a 30 foot balcony over the main street of Cartagena. The master bath has a huge shower with twin heads all tiled in corolina "Travetine" twin Morano glass sinks and plenty of closet space for your belongings.
The guest bedroom can be set up as twin beds or a king sized bed. A full sized bathroom adjoins this bedroom.
This lowers floor also houses the laundry, kitchen and servants quarters.
Up stairs there is another full bathroom and the entertainment area including a nautical bar, upper lounge area, front balcony and pool deck with a beautiful new coralina barbecue.
The front balcony is a superb place for sunset with the cupola of San Pedro Claver church right across the street.
Several photoshoots have been done from this balcony including JCrew plus a number of national TV stations have filmed from here.
The best way to get a feel for this magnificent apartment is to read the reviews and see what other travelers have said about their stay here.
If you want a luxury holiday where every detail has been taken care of for you this is the place to stay.
