About this listing
A stunning luxury apartment in a 17th century house, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, modern kitchen and a reception with a ten meters tall ceiling in the heart of the colonial town. Price includies maid service
The apartment is 135 square meters large in a 17th century house. It is only 3 to 5 minutes away from all the historic monuments, squares, theatres, restaurants and clubs in colonial town, and only 15 minutes walk from the beach. It has a beautiful colonial balcony and the ceiling of the reception/dining room is ten meters tall. It is a reminder of how Cartagena looked like several hundreds years ago. In fact, the owner purchased the property to preserve the architectural patrimony of the city- Sadly, many developers divide the principal area in colonial houses (such as this property) into two apartments as the exceptionally great height allows them to do so, but at the cost of destroying the original glory of the fabulous space.
Interaction with Guests
When the owner is in Cartagena, he will receive the guests, otherwise his English speaking asistant receives them. As an expatriate who now also has Colombian nationality,and has written extensively on Colombia, its history, art and culture, he is happy to provide information to those interested to explore the city and the country at large (or beyond as he has travelled to some 115 countries worldwide including doing safaris in Asia, Africa and South America).
The apartment is situated in the main street in the colonial town. The area is completely safe, during the day and at night.
You can walk maximum ten to fifteen minutes to all main points of interests. Taxis pass during the day and at night right in front of the house.
Other Things to Note
I provide a fact sheet with information on all the highlights of the city and recommended restaurants, bars and shops. The apartment has a massage bed and guests have access to my own top class masseuse and probably the best (English speaking) hair-dresser in town who attends Miss Colombia contestants.
The apartment is strictly non smoking.
