Property description

Enjoy a newly built apartment and your own private rooftop terrace with beautiful ocean views fanned by the Caribbean breeze. Ideally located in the heart of the historic old city within the walls that once surrounded a Viceroy's compound. You will be enchanted by the splendor of the sea and the charm of the colonial streets full of magic and color. The owners have 20 years experience in the hospitality industry and know how to provide the comfort you deserve.

Within walking distance of historic sites, fine dining, lively nightlife, the convention center, Pegasus pier, the Heredia theater, shopping malls, five star hotels and just 10 minutes from the airport, Bocagrande and the beaches.

Perfect for honeymooners, couples and families seeking to spend a memorable vacation or executives attending an international convention.


The complex has two swimming pools, one just for adults and another for the children, a fitness room, two indoor Saunas and three Jacuzzis with one located on a shared terrace with sea and sunset views. The tropical gardens are cool and relaxing with the peaceful sound of falling water.

The apartment is located in the most exclusive area of Cartagena, providing peace, tranquility and relaxation. The complex has a full security system with closed circuit cameras and a receptionist 24 hours a day.

La Casa del Virrey Eslava is one of Cartagena?s most significant historical sites and has retained it?s 17th century colonial facade. Renovated in 2009, the complex is completely modernized inside without breaking the harmony of its historical value. This was the residence of Viceroy Sebastian de Eslava who commanded Spanish colonies from here as the king?s appointed Viceroy of New Granada from April 24, 1740 until November 6, 1749 .

Other Activities: boating, health/beauty spa, gym.

All mayor restaurant are walking distance as well the historic attractions beside the condominium is a historic site that few has a chance to know. One block distance you will find small convenient store call "Carulla" where you can do groceries and also is our famous coffee house Juan Valdez and across a juice bar call "Pan de Bono" a very local site.

The complex has 24 hours security and a peace that you will enjoy as soon as you entrance.

One block behind our complex you will find "La cevicheria" where you can find great ceviches but I also recommend our maid Maria's recipe. I recommend walk and walk all the plazas and colonial street where you will be with the locals that are always happy and smiling.

Cartagena has some beach 10 minutes to Bocagrande or 10 to Marbella either one you choose be prepare for the informal seller if you want not get involve just ignore them. I recommend go to the Rosario Island a day trip that included lunch and will bring you back around 4PM, Maria can help you with reservation to a good tour.

I also recommend a city tour take will take to the Castillo de San Felipe the major fort that Cartagena has. I work with a person that has a SUV and can give a private tour up to 4 people, just let me know and I will put you in contact with him as well he offers pick up and drop off at the airport.

There are several ATM at plaza de la Aduana and is safe area since is inside the walls, take the same precaution as if you were in any cosmopolitan city. Cartagena offer several international festival so check at your arrival what is going on, where must of them are in December (Classic music festival) end ofJanuary "Hay Festival" a very good festival (my favorite) where writers and deep thinkers are invite to discuss different themes or political, economic situations.

There is also the International festival of cinematography (FICCI) the oldest of South America with a FREE entrance to so many movies than you can not see them all(Feb). Let's d not forget our Cartagena Party where we celebrate our independency from Spain but also the beauty contest to choose our next Miss Colombia and join the Colombian to celebrate our parade with as many contestant aspire to be Miss Colombia.(most add my husband love it!)

In the Condominium enjoy the jacuzzis, sauna, pool adults and also we for children, the gym our just the garden with the water walls that bring so much calm and peace.

I must add that Maria the maid is included in the price as she will come everyday at the time you request to CLEAN the apartment but if you need any additional services as cook, wash cloth, iron, you must agree with her a fee.

Please feel free to ask any question, I will be more than happy to answer you.
