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 includes maid service. Guests can use the swimming pool in host´s building.

The space

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).

Other things to note

The apartment is situated in a three story house built in the 17th century of coral stone. Because it is old, despite all modern amenities, in all rooms, kitchen, and bathrooms, objects cannot be thrown in the loo not to clog the sewage system, but in the basket which is emptied daily by the housekeeper

If you want a really clean place in the heart of the city then look no further. Perfect for 6 people, however there was only 2 in our party. within 1 block in any direction adventure waits. Communication, especially when not a Spanish speaker, was exceptional. His driver and Guide were perfect, friendly, and timely always. I would stay here again! Very roomy, safe and close to everything!

Viktor was a great host. Provided a lot of communication and information about the area that came out very handy. The location is great, lots to do in the area. The place provided a lot of space. It was clean and Miss Niada was friendly and also provided us useful information. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

This apt is beautiful! The location is awesome and right in the middle of the historic district! Viktor will send you a package with all the info you need to hang around Cartagena and he will pick up the phone if you have any questions whether he is in the city or not. I will come back!

Viktor's spot was well located in Old City, large and clean. He and his assistant were highly communicative leading up to our stay and very helpful overall. Highly recommend!

Viktor's apartment is amazing. So unique. Even if you decide to stay in for the night, just step onto the balcony at your leisure and bam right smack into the rhythm of the street. Perfect location to everywhere and super clean. A real "wow" when you walk in the door. Viktor is well spoken and communicated with us at every step of our trip. Extremely attentive to our needs. We are a bilingual family (english/spanish) but those who are not dont to worry. Viktor is an Englishmen and speaks many languages from what I understand.

Cartagena is where I was born. My family and I decided to stay in the old town. We had never done it before. We chose Viktor's apartment and found it very comfortable and well located. It is more exciting to stay in the old town than bocagrande where my family. I would like to repeat for my next trip to my city.
