About The Owner

I have worked in a 5 star Hotel and hospitality industry for over 15 years. My gold is to make sure my guests will have the best experience in my beautiful city Cartagena de Indias and great stay in my townhouse

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2005

Why The Owner chose Cartagena

Cartagena was always my dream.

When we where little, my father frequently took us for vacation to this beautiful city. Finally my dreams came true and I had an opportunity to buy my house in this magical city and now I can enjoy it with family and friends

What makes this townhome unique

This spacious Townhouse is located to the back of the famous Santo Domingo Church. It has beautiful sunset, ocean views and facing the old colonial walls of the old city. The Building is in one of the primary locations within the Historic District of Cartagena.

The property has 3 levels, a large balcony on the first floor and a big terrace with many tropical plants on the top floor, where you can enjoy the beautiful sunsets.

The apartment is fully equipped and has air conditioning systems.

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular location within the Old City! The townhouse is a few steps away of the Santo Domingo Church, just across the street from the Café del Mar and the wall, and close to all the restaurants, boutiques and historic landmarks Cartagena offers. Although not fully renovated, the house is very clean, well kept and tastefully decorated; the kitchen is totally furnished and the beds are really confortable. Sandra was very helpful with answering all our questions and her housekeeper, Rosa, was very cooperative too. In addition, the area is nice and safe and the condominium security is excellent. 10/10, would recommend!

Wonderful location-nice spot for a small group!

  • 5 of 5

We were a goup of 6 spending four nights in this lovely apartment. We found the apartment to be spacious, clean and comfortable. It is a bit older than the photos suggested to me, but I found it to be charming and perfect for a group where everyone can have their privacy as well as lovely communal spaces. Each guest receives one towel and there is a hair dryer available. The location could not be better and the security is very good. You can walk anywhere from the apartment, but if you choose, taxis are readily available right outside the gate. The only confusion we had was getting water for the water cooler, and perhaps this was due to a language barrier. The bedrooms are all nicely air conditioned. The rest of the apartment has both ceiling and free standing fans. Sandra, the owner, was wonderful to deal with and she even contacted us during our stay to make sure all was well. There is a housekeeper available who is very sweet. Some knowledge of Spanish is helpful in speaking with her as well as security. I would recommend this apartment to anyone who would love to have a safe, pleasant stay in this colorful city.

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

Great location within the city walls with spectacular view of the sea and within walking distance of all locations within the Old City. No need to go to Cafe del Mar, as this apartment has a better view! All in all, the apartment is as described and is tastefully furnished with all necessary appliances and beds. Be aware there is a winding 3 level staircase. Arrival went seamlessly with guard knowing our names and giving key, along with introduction to housekeeper. Payment via wire was somewhat of a hassle due to cross-border banking hiccups, but was no fault of the owner. Great location and spot!

Spacious, comfortable and welcoming place for a week in Cartagena.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spend a wonderful week at this very comfortable home in January and would have happily stayed longer. The location and view were wonderful- we unexpectedly enjoyed the view from the balcony of the park just in front of the city wall even more than the Caribbean view from the roof terrace because of the people-watching. Fascinating! Margelis, the housekeeper, checked in on us regularly and despite the fact that we do not speak Spanish, managed to make sure all was going well. We hired her to cook us dinner in the apartment one night, and while we had an overwhelming variety of excellent meals in the old city, that was one of the most memorable. The AC, beds and linens were ideal and the kitchen had everything we could possibly need and more. We enjoyed the city and apartment very much and will be back for sure.

Adorable townhouse

  • 4 of 5

Esta casa de 3 pisos no es sólo hermosa, está muy bien ubicada en la mejor zona de la ciudad vieja, pero también muy bien cuidada, lo cual no es siempre el caso en Colombia. El diseño y el mobiliario de las habitaciones era perfecto para 5 personas. A todos nos gustó especialmente la cocina muy bien equipada, y, por supuesto, la terraza con vistas al mar. Todo el mundo en la recepción de la residencia era muy agradable y servicial, así como a la criada, Margelis, que se aseguró de que todo estuviera limpio y listo para nosotros llegamos. La propietaria de la casa, Sandra, está muy preocupada y nos envió un correo electrónico a su llegada para asegurarse que todo estuviera bien.
