About Christian Gomez

I was born in Colombia and have been living in Washington DC for 30 + years.

Christian Gomez purchased this condo in 2006

Why Christian Gomez chose Cartagena

I started coming to Cartagena on vacation since I was 4 years old. A lot has changed since then. A thriving historic center has emerged and declared historic patrimony by UNESCO. Music, literature and film festivals abound and new beaches have been opened to the public. Couldn't wait to own my own place in this city where I first fell in love and where my wife was born.

What makes this condo unique

This is a contemporary building, right by the beach with all the amenities one might need for a relaxing vacation. When I first saw it I couldn't believe the beauty of the ocean views that can be enjoyed from wherever you are in the apartment.

A dream vacation!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a truly relaxing and wonderful place to stay, this is it! Iraida is an amazing cook and knows how to prepare the local cuisine expertly. We tried to bring her home, but no luck! :) I can't wait to bring my family to Cartagena again soon!

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great long weekend in Cartagena. The apartment is beautiful and spacious and in a great location, on the beach and just a short drive from the old city. Iris the house keeper is a wonderful cook and very attentive.

Looking forward to another visit soon.

Clean, bright, comfortable, exactly as pictured. Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our four kids stayed here for four days and it was absolutely perfect. The condo is beautiful, clean, bright, modern and comfortable with stunning views of the ocean and overlooking the fabulous pool. It is only a 10 minute cab/uber to the old city where we went each day, and then we were happy to come home to the condo at the beach with so much open space and two great pools for the kids to play and for us to relax when we were done in town. Christian (the owner) was always quick to respond to any of our questions, and the housekeeper was lovely. Would definitely come back!

My Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

I have found my happy place, a piece of paradise, my better home away from home. Breathtaking views, comfortable, spotless condo, even more amazing in person. What can I say about Iraida, she is a gem, worth every pound I gained even after hitting the gym twice in a week. Christian was always within reach via e-mail, text or phone to answer every question prior to our stay.

Christian, thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful property. We will be going back. :)

I give a 9.5. Totally recommend

  • 5 of 5

El departamento es excelente, tal cual se presenta en la web, amplio, comfortable, bien provisto y super limpio. Una vista increíble! un placer sentarse en el balcón! Hemos tenido una estadía muy agradable, y muy bien atendidas por Iri. Solo tuvimos un pequeño problema con el calentador de agua que fue resuelto al otro dia.

Recomendamos esta propiedad!
