Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Location: Recently completed contemporary apartment complex on the Northern Cartagena Beach of La Boquilla.

Located just 5 minutes from the International Airport, 300 yards from the renowned Las Americas Hotel and 10 minutes from the Colonial Walled City. Enjoy a relaxing day at the beach or take a 10 minute cab ride to the Walled City.

Home of the Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Cartagena was founded in 1533 and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Elle Magazine raves: '...you can spend hours wandering through a maze of cobbled alleys framed by bougainvillea-lined balconies and fashionable shops and cafes. The streets are filled with pedestrians and horse-drawn carriages...'

The Condo: Located in the second floor, just steps away from the pools and beach. Wrap around balcony with 180 degree views of the beach.

Three bedrooms, two and a half baths, ample living and dining area, fully equipped kitchen, independently controlled mini split air conditioning in every room, two flat screen TVs, sound system and wireless broadband internet access. Fully equipped with towels and linens. Security lock-box. Daily cleaning service.

The Building: Residents have access to three miles of beaches, two swimming pools, a complete exercise gym facility, 10,000 sq. yards of common areas with tropical gardens and private underground parking. 24 hour security with doormen at the main and beach entrances.

Conveniences: Attended by a individual housekeeper who will clean and cook at your convenience.

Keywords: Condominium, condo, swimming, beach, colonial

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 Cartagena

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 APT

  • 5 of 5

Great Apartment, Outstanding view, Christian communicated everything we needed to know.

Best part Irida the housekeeper is one of the best cooks I know, I realized to late that I should have asked what her favorite dish is and gotten the supplies so she could have made that, as it was we just purchased what we thought were staples and she kept putting together great meals from that.

Can't wait to go back.

Family Vacation in Cartegena

  • 5 of 5

Spent our second trip to Cartegena staying at this wonderful condo. Days at the beach and pool and evenings exploring Cartegena, it's an ideal vacation. Iraida is a wonderful cook and becomes part of the family. We miss her and her breakfasts. As our son lives in Colombia I am sure we will be back and would rent this condo again. One caveat, in our experience which consists of four trips to Colombia, visitng this country is easier with a Spanish speaker.

Hermoso Lugar

  • 5 of 5

Fue nuestro primer viaje a Cartagena con nuestros tres hijos. Un lugar maravilloso, la vista al mar y la piscina desde el balcón es perfecta, el estado de limpieza y conservación del condominio es muy bueno. Iraida, la señora encargada de la limpieza diaria, además de cocinar desayuno y almuerzo (servicio incluido en el precio) es un verdadero éxito, amable, agradable y excelente cocinera. Definitivamente es el lugar ideal cuando se visita Cartagena y sera nuestro lugar de alojamiento cada vez que regresemos a esa hermosa ciudad.
