About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 full Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

When we started on VRBO and Homeaway there was no one else doing it in Cartagena.

Besides being the best location and nicest most luxurious apartment in the old city we have many benefits to enhance your stay, we can arrange airport pickup for a very reasonable price. Fresh cut tropical flowers, and concierge service are included.

We have the best views of Cartagena for when you want to just hang out in the apartment.

There is a full time butler that services the apartment daily and you will never want for fresh clean linens and towels.

There is an optional cook for a very reasonable price, about US$15 per day and if you have her stay after 5pm to serve dinner an extra $5 for transport home.

The pool deck is private to the apartment, you do not share it with anyone. The pool is small and you certainly can't swim laps but it is a great place to refresh on a hot day while taking in the views of Cartagena.

There are 2 bedrooms with full bath. The main bedroom spans the entire front of the apartment and has a 30 foot balcony over the main street of Cartagena. The master bath has a huge shower with twin heads all tiled in corolina "Travetine" twin Morano glass sinks and plenty of closet space for your belongings.

The guest bedroom can be set up as twin beds or a king sized bed. A full sized bathroom adjoins this bedroom.

This lower floor also houses the laundry, kitchen and servants quarters.

Up stairs there is another full bathroom and the entertainment area including a nautical bar, upper lounge area, front balcony and pool deck with a beautiful new coralina barbecue.

The front balcony is a superb place for sunset with the cupola of San Pedro Claver church right across the street.

Several photoshoots have been done from this balcony including JCrew plus a number of national TV stations have filmed from here.

The best way to get a feel for this magnificent apartment is to read the reviews and see what other travelers have said about their stay here.

If you want a luxury holiday where every detail has been taken care of for you this is the place to stay.

The $400 per night is for up to 4 people. For more than 4 people contact me for a quote.

Perfect Vacation Property.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time here. This place is an oasis in the best part of town and my only complaint is that I cant give it more stars. The property is so beautiful that we enjoyed hanging out there just as much as touring the city. Jorge was great to have around and really made the trip for us, and Billys cooking was better than most meals we had out. The only thing I feel like I can add to the endless 5 star reviews of this property is a review of the 2nd bedroom. We were two couples traveling together so the question of who gets the master bedroom was a big decision and I didn't see it mentioned by anyone else in much detail. Have no fear, the second bedroom was just as good as the first, just a little smaller and slightly less lavish. It had its own bathroom and was actually much quieter than the master, which is on the main main street, so the 2nd was easier to get good sleep in. I actually preferred the 2nd bedroom for those reasons.

Absolutely Delighted!

  • 5 of 5

Greg is amazing and went above and beyond to accommodate us! The place is so incredibly unique and original. We loved hanging out and enjoying the sights from

above. The real gem of this location is the crew...Jorge and Billy are such a delightful duo. We had three wonderfully prepared traditional meals and was such a treat to enjoy from the compfort of our deck!

Great apartment, excellent service and management

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend staying here to anyone, it’s a well appointed flat in my opinion perfect for a family of 4. The master is wonderful large airy room with a balcony overlooking the picturesque street and cathedral. The second room is good for kids as it’s a bit dark, an interior room without a window so another adult couple might be envious of the master.

The best part about the flat though is the upstairs common area with two open air balconies and plenty of room to spread out. High recommend. Location could not be better.

So wonderful... could not recommend more!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at a lot of VRBOs over the last few years, some okay and some not so great. But this place was exceptional! The space itself was just beautiful! And the staff made it that much better.

Master BR: Other reviews are accurate that the noise can be a bit much, but we both sleep with earplugs anyway, so no difference to us. My favorite was watching the people below from the balcony while getting ready to go out at night.The master bath is huge shower with two shower heads, double sinks, closets, and a safe.

2nd BR: This room was perfect for our two kids. Much quieter than the master and no windows so my kids actually slept past 8am. A true vacation dream! Attached bathroom with a shower.

Upstairs: The living area is all upstairs and is just perfect. There's a bar, dining area, sitting area, another bathroom with a shower, two balconies, and a small pool. We spent so many afternoons just relaxing in this space that it made the perfect vacation.

Other: Jorge is the butler and he was absolutely wonderful! He was always available for whatever we needed, made lovely breakfasts, and even packed us a beach bag with towels the day we ventured out to Playa Blanca. Greg also hooked us with a driver to bring us from the airport and Luis ended up to be indispensable during our stay! He also drove us to Playa Blanca, the castle, and back to the airport. And the location of the property is just perfect! In the walled city, conveniently located to everything.

Overall: This was probably, no definitely, the BEST property that we've stayed at. Thanks again, Greg, for a wonderful getaway!

A wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

The walled city of Cartagena is a pedestrian paradise on a very human scale. Our apartment was at the lower end, clise to restsurants and shops and with a glorious view.
