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.

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.

A dream vacation!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a truly relaxing and wonderful place to stay, this is it! Iraida is an amazing cook and knows how to prepare the local cuisine expertly. We tried to bring her home, but no luck! :) I can't wait to bring my family to Cartagena again soon!

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great long weekend in Cartagena. The apartment is beautiful and spacious and in a great location, on the beach and just a short drive from the old city. Iris the house keeper is a wonderful cook and very attentive.

Looking forward to another visit soon.
