Property description

This one bedroom vacation rental apartment is in the historic center of Cartagena. It is located on vibrant Calle de la Moneda in the San Diego district and is a perfect holiday retreat for one to four persons. One of the most striking features of this apartment is its balcony that overlooks bustling Calle de la Moneda. It's a terrific perch from which to people watch or sip a cocktail in the evening! The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen with everything needed to cook yourself a savory meal. Energy efficient mini splits provides generous coolness on hot days. Other amenities include state of the art internet with a dedicated bandwidth, ceiling fans, cable tv in the living room and bedroom, and tile throughout. The apartment is large and the bedroom is situated far enough from the living room for seclusion and privacy if someone were to occupy the sofa bed in the living room. The bedroom is furnished with a double bed, wardrobe and a safe for valuables. The bathroom is large, beautiful and modern. There is hot water which is not available everywhere in Cartagena. Every guest has access to a laundry room in the hallway accessing the apartment that is equipped with a washer and dryer, extra linen, towels, iron and ironing board.

Visitors to the Caribbean naturally flock to Cartagena. It's not just home to the largest Spanish fort in the Americas- more impressive than Campeche, San Juan, or Havana. It's not just the splendid walled city - designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1984. As much as anything it's the people and culture. 
Immerse yourself in Cartagena's captivating and colorful history. Visit the amazing naval museum and imagine yourself an adventurer or better, a buccaneer! Have our delightful concierge, Benjamin, arrange an enchanted back alley tour of the city that will have you begging for more stories of colonial intrigue. Wander and get lost in Cartagena's vibrant streets. Savor an empanada or tropical fruit juice from the many vendors that line the streets. Pay tribute at the Monumento a los Zapatos Viejos and then when you are good and tired, relax in your comfortable and cool apartment!
Everything you need or desire is within short walking distance of your apartment: beautiful colonial buildings and plazas, cafes, pastry shops, terrific restaurants and bars, museums, the wall itself and the fort. A  large supermarket, Exito, is just around the corner. The iconic ambassador of Colombian coffee, Juan Valdez, now adds his name to a chain of Juan Valdez Cafes, one of which is located just a block away.
Calle de la Moneda is typically busy and crowded during the day, but wonderfully tranquil and peaceful at night.
It is not necessary, nor is it recommended to have your own car in the Walled City! Walking is definitely the way to explore the area. Taxis abound and are very economical. Be sure to negotiate. You should be able to get around the walled city and surroundings for about 5000 pesos during the day and 6000 pesos at night.
Catch a romantic horse drawn carriage to take you back to the apartment at night.
Benjamin, our delightful, inimitable and ebullient manager, will be on hand to assist you with any and all of your needs. He does not live on the property, but is always accessible. He knows Cartagena like the back of his hand.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We live in Dallas, Texas and have owned vacation rental properties for many years. When we went to Cartagena in 2011 we fell in love with the city and bought 3 modern, renovated apartments in the old walled city.

Why the Owner Chose El Centro, Cartagena de Indias, Bolivar, Colombia:
It is wonderfully renovated and perfectly situated to explore the walled city.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The property is in the heart of the Old Walled City on the lively street of Calle de la Moneda. It's very typical of Old Cartagena- beautiful colonial buildings, vibrant and bustling, no need for a car, within walking distance of every site imaginable. One of the perks of this property is that it is wonderfully tranquil at night.
