About Christian Gomez

I was born in Colombia and have been living in Washington DC for 30 + years.

Christian Gomez purchased this condo in 2006

Why Christian Gomez chose Zona Norte

I started coming to Cartagena on vacation since I was 4 years old. A lot has changed since then. A thriving historic center has emerged and declared historic patrimony by UNESCO. Music, literature and film festivals abound and new beaches have been opened to the public. Couldn't wait to own my own place in this city where I first fell in love and where my wife was born.

What makes this condo unique

This is a contemporary building, right by the beach with all the amenities one might need for a relaxing vacation. When I first saw it I couldn't believe the beauty of the ocean views that can be enjoyed from wherever you are in the apartment.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The apartment is in a great location and it is nicely decorated. The staff from the building was very nice and Iris (Housekeeper) was simply amazing! She made us feel comfortable and cooked phenomenal meals for us, in addition to keeping the space clean. She also showed up with fresh pastries every morning!! Totally spoiled us. Thank you Christian for opening up your home to us. We built wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.

Truly Amazing

  • 5 of 5

After you have read all the other reviews, ours would be consistent. It is indescribably beautiful. Immaculately clean.

Iris was like family. We felt so comfortable with all that she did to make our stay wonderful. We will never forget her. Iris was everything, an amazing cook, she gave suggestions and a genuine kind individual. Iris went way beyond the call of duty. Took care of every detail. Iris you are the best!

We will definitely stay here again. Thank you Christian for allowing us to share in your beautiful paradise.

Our family made memories that will be held so close to our heart. Thank you again.

We will return.

Christian communicated with us right up until we arrived, making sure we were situated, which was comforting. We enjoyed the accommodations during our Mother's Day get away. The condo was neatly prepared for us and impeccably clean! Iriata welcomed us and made sure our needs were met during our stay. She was amazing and went above and beyond her call of duty! She cooked breakfast and made sure we had a fresh cup of coffee, daily. The grounds are clean and security is present to make the guest feel safe. The only disappointment was the gym, the equipment is old and not well maintained and the space has a bad odor because it's near the pool and closed in without air conditioning, with exception of the small air conditioner unit on the wall. You will want to travel to a near by beach, the one the property sits on is more for walking. No problem getting transportation from the Condo if you need it and a few hotel restaurants are in walking distance of the Condo. Overall, our stay at the condo was wonderful and pleasant and I would recommend anyone to stay here!

The place is beautiful! What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get. We had an amazing time staying in this condo. Christian was very responsive and on top of everything and the housekeeper Iraida was everything & more. We gave her money to buy groceries for us and she took it from there. She cooked lunch for us one night and breakfast 2 mornings; we had coffee every morning along with fruit juices & sliced fruits. We were sold and we didn't want to leave. The pool was perfect & pretty big. Only suggestion since I'm sure a lot of foreigners stay here on vacation is to have more information with places to eat, where to sight see & the popular hang out spots. We found ourselves often asking the front desk for recommendations and they weren't very helpful- they did help us with getting taxis from the condo so that was good. Still highly recommend this place and if I ever come back to Cartagena I will definitely stay here. Beautiful city!

Even better than described !!

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time ever that I have given 5 stars. This property deserves it in EVERY respect!! The property is as described and better. The owner was incredibly helpful and gave us several very useful tips that made our stay even more special. The housekeeper is way more than a housekeeper - she is a true chef. In fact, I honestly feel that with the exception of maybe 1 or 2 restaurants, her cuisine was the best during our stay. Regarding the accommodations: The decor is very tasteful and quite inviting. There is plenty of space: In our group there were 4 adults and 2 children and we all had enough space for quiet time when we wanted it and still have an ongoing conversation with those who didn't.

We keep coming back for more...!

  • 5 of 5

I believe this was our fifth visit to this apartment, and we'll be back again no doubt. The spectacular view never gets old, the apartment is spacious and comfortable, and the home cooked meals are better than any restaurant. With the beach and pool right outside our door, and El Centro a few minutes away, this is our favorite place on the Colombian coast.
