Luxury 6 Bedroom House in the Colonial Heart of Cartagena
average rating of 4.9333334 based on 15 reviews


  • 5 of 5

I recently celebrated my birthday here with +10 friends and we couldn't have been more pleased. The property is unbelievably well managed and maintained. The house staff are very accommodating and are arguably some of the best cooks on the island! The location is perfect! Key points of interest are all walkable. If you are lucky enough to make it down to Cartagena, be sure to make arrangement to stay at here.

Best Place in Cartagena

  • 5 of 5

This place is unbeleivable, not just the location is the best, but the house is ridiculously awesome and the best of the house are the ladies that come with it. You will eat better Colombian/local food, imho, in the house than in any restaurant of the city. And I can say that with property because I'm a Colombian who used to live in Cartagena! If you are staying here, you will just enjoy yourself!

Gorgeous house, amazing location, superior security and so convenient!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for a group of 12 people in our late-20's for our last spring break ever. We were AMAZED at how great the place was-- the pictures don't do it justice. The house was big enough to sleep all of us without anyone feeling cramped. The rooms were great and the layout of the house is so fun-- the private pool downstairs and the roof deck are both fantastic places to hang out, and the cook was MAGICAL. It was easy to book, the location in Old Town is super convenient, and the complex is really safe (and included two pools in addition to our private pool, and a gym). Overall, I would highly recommend the property to anyone looking to house a large group!

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. We came here for a bachelor party for my best friend, and I wanted to find something that could house 9 guys comfortably for a long weekend. It had to be a place that rewarded the 15 hours of travel it took to get us all there. I read all the reviews and picked the house based on pictures and reviews and it exceeded my expectations. The owners were easy to deal with and their communication was impeccable.

The local property managers and staff in Cartagena were great as well. I don't have a single complaint.

The house is clean, beautifully decorated. Each room is secluded from the others. People can choose to be together in common areas or have privacy in their own rooms.

Great house for a big group

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the house with a group of 10+ people and had a blast. It is beautiful inside with spacious bedrooms and plenty of common space. I particularly enjoyed the lounge area and hot tub on the roof (which thankfully was not HOT HOT so we could actually get in it!). The level of attention to detail in the house is what made our stay truly spectacular, down to the Tempurpedic pillows (glorious), and bathrooms so beautiful I had to take a photo of them. The old city of Cartagena is beautiful and tourist-friendly. I recommend watching the sunset from Cafe del Mar, a bar within walking distance of the house that is up on the fortress wall overlooking the Caribbean sea. While I never felt unsafe in Cartagena, I was happy to be staying in a gated property.
