Interaction with Guests
I live in Bogotá but I travel often to Cartagena, so if it happens I will gladly take you out to dance clubs or to have some drinks in this lovely city.
It's located in the best place of the walled city, 1 block away from the Plaza Santo Domingo, in front of 'Café del Mar' - The best place to have drinks over the wall. There is an 'Exito' (Big supermaket) just 20 minutes walking away and 3 minutes by taxi..There's no best spot at the walled city because you can also have a sea sight ! (Check the guide here thru airbnb to see restaurants , bars and clubs near by). It's pretty safe to walk at EVERY time of the night and day.
To get around you just need to walk. 80% of the places you will visit are within walking distance. If not, you have taxi drivers 24/7 in front of the building at a maximum price of 12.000 COP (6 USD) of all rides in Cartagena.

This apartment is a real gem in the Walled City. Great location with walking access to many of the must-see sights, including Cafe del Mar. This is good and bad as the music, partying and traffic noise can go on late into the evening. Jaime was a super host, and we loved Shirley who cooked delicious breakfasts for us. The apartment was comfortable for our family of 4 but could accommodate more without problem. Air conditioning worked well given the hot weather. The 3rd floor bedroom has awesome views of the ocean, Boca Grande and the wall.
This three level home in cartagena is beautiful. We stayed there during a very hot period and it's air conditioning and gorgeous patio made it amazing. The dryer/washer and daily cleaning really made it an enjoyable stay as well. Only recommendation is to be aware this is a very vibrant location with bustling Street noise and Cafe del Mar playing music until late, so plan accordingly.
We wanted a true Cartagena experience and that is exactly what we got! My husband and I wanted our children (6 and 12) to have an experience that they would remember and this is one they certainly will. We all loved our time spent in Cartagena. As we were flying home are children were already asking when we could return!
This apartment is totally charming. It has a very "old world" feeling but at the same time still modernlying comfortable and convenient. Jamie's apartment is in a wonderful location over looking "the muralla" (ancient wall) and ocean. One of our favorite things about the apartment was the outdoor bathroom and shower connected to the 3rd floor bedroom. It was so special to shower with the ocean breeze blowing through. It was truely amazing to wake in the mornings in the 3rd foor bedroom to see the Colombian flag blowing in the ocean breeze.
Cafe del Mar is across the street from the apartment and was loud at night during the weekend. They played electronic music until 4am. If you are looking for a very quiet peaceful vacation Cartagena, Colombia may not be for you. There is a lot street noise (horns, chivas, horse/carriages) in addition to the bar noise. All the noise aside, by the third night we all slept wonderfully.
Shirley comes and cleans and she is incredibly trust worthy and non-intrusive. She made us delicious breakfasts and kept the house very clean.
The building and area are incredibly safe. The building security guards are warm and helpful.
We had an exceptional time in Jamie's apartment and will definitely be coming back as soon as we can.
My family and I stayed at Jaime’s apartment for four nights in April 2015. The apartment was comfortable and we really enjoyed the terrace on the rooftop. The only two inconveniences we had were the AC in the third floor bedroom, which wasn’t working, and the safety box, which is permanently locked and therefore does not work (a previous guest took the key and didn’t leave the password). Jaime was great at communicating with me before and during my stay. Overall, I would recommend Jaime’s apartment.
Thanks Catalina for your comments ! The AC was fixed right away when you let us know the last night of your stay and we decided not to offer anymore the safe deposit box because it's been hard to deal with the things you mentioned it.
Thanks again for choosing a RentaElite vacational condo in Cartagena!
A stunning apartment in a great location really close to the historic centre. Beautiful decor and very comfortable. Lovely balcony with views of city wall and sea. We had a lovely time there and Jaime was very helpful and accomodating. Would definitely recommend a stay here!
It was a very nice place. The terrace on the top floor was the best part of the house. Really good view of the wall and the sea, waking up to the singing of the birds and the outdoor shower was an awesome experience. Shirley, the cleaning lady was very nice, attentive and ready to help at any time. The location of the house is really good, right in the middle of the walled city, at walkable distance to everything. I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to go and have a great Cartagena experience.
