The Space

This renovated two bedroom apartment has everything you need! The furnishings in the spacious living/dining area includes a couch that converts to a double bed and a flat screen TV on the wall. The fully equipped kitchen is separated from the main area by a counter area with bar stools.

The master bedroom has a double bed and en suite bath. The second bedroom has a double bed and adjoining full bath; this bathroom has a second door that connects to the living room.

The apartment has strong wifi, cable/smart TV (with Netflix), air conditioning (a mini-split unit in each room), ceiling and floor fans, a safe, hair dryer, and soap. Linens and bath (plus beach) towels are included. And there is hot water in the shower and sinks -- not all places in Cartagena have this!

Optional services (at additional expense) are: Colombian meals &/or cooking classes in the apartment, housekeeping, and guided tours.

This apartment is ideal for a couple of friends, two couples, or a family. If you have a little one, we have a playpen/crib available on request.

Guest Access

This apartment is one of three--studio, one bedroom, & two bedroom--located on the 2nd floor of a two-story building (a clothing store is on the ground floor). There is a door from the street with stairs to the second floor which guests of the three apartments share. Guests will have the key to this main door as well as to their own individual apartment.

In the hallway is a large closet containing things shared by all three apartments: a clothes washer & dryer; laundry detergent; iron & ironing board; extra bath & beach towels; linens; cleaning supplies; extra toilet paper, etc.

Interaction with Guests

Once booked, guests receive a multi-page document with information on the apartments and Cartagena. I lived in this city for two years and traveled around Colombia quite a bit and would be happy to answer any questions or give advice via email or phone prior to your trip.

Upon arrival in Cartagena, our bilingual (Spanish/ English) apartment manager will meet you at the apartment at the agreed upon time to let you in, show you the place, and give you keys. While Henry doesn’t live on site, he is never far away; he'll help you with any apartment needs during your stay. He also wears another hat as a tour guide; should you want a guided tour or tourism assistance, while there, feel free to ask!

The Neighborhood

These apartments are located in the San Diego section of the magical Old City of Cartagena, within the 500 year old Spanish colonial walls. Colonial architecture abounds!

The building is on Calle de la Moneda, which is a busy and lively street during the day but quiet at night. The street is lined with shops and a couple of small, inexpensive restaurants. Just about everything is closed by 8 pm, however, so you’re not disturbed by noise during the night.

At the far end of Calle de la Moneda is the Exito department store which sells everything from groceries to electronics plus has an ATM. One street away in the other direction you'll find the popular Juan Valdez coffee shop and the main University of Cartagena building. And a block around the corner is the beautiful Parque Fernández de Madrid surrounded by plenty of nice restaurants and cafes.

As transportation hubs for local buses and shared taxis are a couple of blocks straight down this street, Calle de la Moneda is widely used by Cartageneros as they go to and from work, school, etc. (and to shop!). You are in the heart of “real” Cartagena on Calle de la Moneda!

Churches, museums, other shops, bars, the old city wall, and the Caribbean Sea are only a few blocks away. You are within close proximity to everything here!

Getting Around

Walking is the best way to get around the Walled City – it’s great wandering the maze of quaint streets. But you are never far from the surrounding walls so you don’t have to worry about accidentally straying too far!

If you are in a hurry or want to venture outside the walls, taxis are inexpensive and easily flagged on the street. We are a 5-10 minute/US$6 taxi ride from the airport, and a five-ten minute/US$3 taxi ride away from other sites/areas, such as San Felipe Castle (the huge old Spanish fort) or the tourist dock (for the boats to the Rosario Islands, where many prefer to go for the beach), or the beaches of Bocagrande, Laguito and Castillogrande.

Other Things to Note

We look forward to having you!

We partner with 'Pack for a Purpose', an organization that links travelers who'd like to help fulfill wish lists of non-profits in developing countries. We work with Fundación La Vecina, a community organization in Cartagena, and would love to have your help!

We normally have a 3 night minimum stay requirement (5 nights over New Year's), but will accept 2 night stays on a case by case basis with the addition of a cleaning fee.
