Depending on the laws of the jurisdiction of the traveler and/or member, VAT may be charged on top of the service fee. The exact service fee (and any VAT, if applicable) charged will be displayed to travelers at the time of booking. The service fee plus applicable VAT will be charged after both the traveler and member accept the reservation.

Any taxes alleged to be owed by any taxing authority on the service fee are the responsibility of HomeAway and members have no responsibility for any such claimed tax liability. Members agree not to encourage or advise a traveler to avoid or circumvent the service fee charged by HomeAway.

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. We are also very proud to have spent considerable effort and expense this year to achieve certification as a sustainable tourism provider. We take the legality of short term rentals and its legislation seriously. Please feel free to ask for our license information.

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.
