Property description

This is it. The right place for your vacation, well done.
All you have to do is read the fantastic reviews. We are the most central location in Cartagena. No other apartment has a better location. 50 feet from your front door is the main central plaza and just around the corner all the clubs and restaurants you can imagine. In fact there is a hugely popular restaurant next door
From the numerous balconies you can see every major feature of this beautiful Colonial city.
San Pedro Claver, La Cathedral, Castillo San Felipe and La Popa all from one location in the apartment.
The apartment in on the top 2 floors of a 4 story building and on the top floor there is a swimming pool/ jacuzzi. There is nothing better than sitting in this jacuzzi with a cool drink and looking at the view in total privacy.
But who can describe better than the multitude of guests that have stayed here so please read the reviews and remember to bring your happy face.
One guest described the master bedroom as living like a Sultan.
The optional cook has impressed many a guest with her typical Colombian creations Don't come to lose weight.
Jorge, the live in butler is also gaining a reputation and has been described as resembling Morgan Freeman with his friendly soothing manner.
Believe me this is the place for your stay if you want to live in pure luxury and be treated right from the inquiry stage right through to your departure.
You will be met at the airport and taken to the apartment where an introduction to all it has to offer is made.
We can find you guides, drivers, tours, set up dinner parties etc.
Thanks for your interest and feel free to email me if you have any questions.
