About The Owner

I work in Washington DC. While visiting Cartagena two years ago I fell in love with this amazing city, the people the food, and he weather. I continued visiting Cartagena until I finally decided to buy my own place to enjoy the city on a regular basis and share the experiences with friends and family.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2011

Why The Owner chose El Laguito

Cartagena is the most iconinc city in Colombian. Its old city is a magical place that captivate all who visit this historic place. The city is home to some of the best restaurants, bars and lounges in the country, there is a place for every style.

What makes this apartment unique

The views from this top floor apartment are spectacular. Very few places offer such an amazing view of the Caribbean, the bay and the old city. There is a large window that faces the island of Tierrabomba, which is a beautiful sight day and night. The breeze atop of the 25 floor is something worth experiencing. The apartment has been renovated to the highest standards to provide all its guests with a very special stay. Having travelled extensively, I have tried to incorporate details from different cultures to make my place a pleasant space that reflects my eclectic taste.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Let me just say that the accomodations and the location was the most amazing experience EVER! We were in Cartagena for my nephews wedding! The views in this penthouse were breathtaking! It was also very nice that I was able to make my nephew and his new bride dinner and 7 others as well! The shopping, beach, cafes were all within walking distance. It is 6000 pesos to get to old city! Very easy to get around the city! I can't wait to go back to Cartagena and I will definately book this condo again!

My husband and I enjoyed staying in this apartment on the top floor. The views are beautiful from every room. When we first arrived as we did the walk through with Lily we noticed that the bed in the master bedroom had not been made yet. This matter was quickly taken care of. My husband asked the cleaning lady if she knew where he could buy some sandals, which surprisingly to us about 20 minutes later she returned with 2 pair for him to choose from. The location is ideal. Plenty of grocery stores to go to close by, as well as beaches. Edguardo downstairs was great in setting up activities such as the city tour and Rosario Islands. Both tours were prompt and the guides were very nice. The only downside to our trip which has nothing to do with the apartment is the fact that there were too many vendors trying to sell you stuff on the beach. The other thing was when we came outside to go get a boat to go the Tierrabomba Island a man approached us with a card to offer us a package deal. When I pointed in the picture to the boat ride, cabana and chairs and lunch $100,000 col for 2, he said yes, however when we got over there he tried to say lunch wasn’t included,so I had to argue with him for awhile to get what we agreed upon. That was a little frustrating. I wished I booked that with Edguardo as well. El Muelle restauraunt which is on the beach at the dead end when you come out of the apartment, the food and service was very good. Unfortunately we don’t speak Spanish so this made it a little difficult but it was a huge help to have the app iTranslate as well as the converter app for money. I would definitely stay on this apartment again

Loved it!

This place is beyond great. The ocean views from all the rooms are spectacular. The apartment is very well located, with shops and amenities withing walking distance. The beach is right across the street. The neighborhood has its charm and is very safe and friendly. We loved that we were very close to the city center, yet far from the noise.

Clean, spacious, great views.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 4 nights in March 2016. It was myself and a friend both single males in our 30's. The condo is on the top floor with plenty of room and great views of the ocean. It's fairly close to centro, where all the bars and nightlife are. I will definitely be coming back to Cartagena soon and if this spot is available I would stay again.

Spectacular views, great location

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay here. Everything was as advertised. The apartment is clean, well furnished, and in good condition. The views all around the property are just amazing ... exactly what you would hope for. Communications with the owner Santiago and the onsite manager Edgar were excellent and we had no issues whatsoever. There is a small grocery store literally 1 block and maybe 100 yards away, several very nice and reasonably priced restaurants very close and right on the beach. We particularly enjoyed the Restaurante Bar El Muelle right at the end of the street on the beach from the building location, it has lounges and hammocks where you can enjoy a day a the beach in a full service bar and restaurant. Hard to beat!
