The building charges a penalty per person for short term rentals for anyone that enters and requires our written express permission referencing that persons passport number. Therefore all guests must be registered at the time of booking. Add-ons will not be given permission to enter the building unless we approve them and an additional fee will be required. We reserve the right to refuse entry if identities of guests are changed.

The building is very private and exclusive. Inside and out it is a very elegant, yet unpretentious environment. The building was designed using 'feng shui' principles and is unique among its counterparts. There are 24 hour security guards at the main entrance and garage and at the beach access entrance. The beach access area has outdoor showers.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: `We are a U.S./Colombian family with extended family in and strong ties to Colombia. It´s a very family friendly building, which we respect.

Why the Owner Chose Zona Norte (Cartagena, Bolivar, Colombia):
We chose this building in the Boquilla section because we wanted a relaxing beach environment and an exclusive building with a strong neighbor/community atmosphere.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Many activities nearby for children, wonderful neighbors. There are only approximately 40 apartments in the building, all are large family apartments and many owners are year round residents. This is a rental to bring your family or friends with their family and enjoy a comfortable, relaxing stay at the beach. The building management is very strict about enforcing noise and nuisance regulations. It is not a party or 'spring break' appropriate destination.
