About this listing
Official SuperHost. Nice apartment in a beautiful building in the heart of historic area. Restaurants, beach, bars, clubs, cafes, museums and more just few blocks away. Perfect if you want to be in the middle of action but in a calm building.
The apartment is in the beautiful building Casa del Rio, the perfect combination of contemporary design and colonial-republican architecture. It was designed by the reknown architect Alvaro Barrera, recognized worldwide for his colonial building renovations in South America.
Casa del Rio has an interior patio with pools and beautiful gardens that evoque one of the main characteristics of the colonial architecture. From the top terrace, the view of the bay and the Cathedral are really nice. The terrace is a great place to relax during the day, has two pools and the wet and dry sauna. The building has 24/7 security service.
The apartment is modern and well equipped for a comfortable stay. 2 rooms (1 with TV) with double beds and AC, 2 bathrooms with unlimited hot water, living room, fully equipped kitchen, balcony to inner patio and pool, etc.
Acces to the pools, wet and dry sauna, 24 hrs security, WIFI, cellphone for national calls, flat screen TV with DirectTV (over a 100 international channels).
Interaction with Guests
I don´t live in Santa Marta, just go few times a year, but I have a property manager which is great, would give you the keys and help you in anything you need. Between us two we´ll try that you have a comfty and unique experience in our place and town.
The building is located downtown, in the historic area and it´s surrounded by nice restaurants, coffee shops, bars, fun clubs, museums, monuments, parks, plazas, the beach (1 block away), yacht marina, banks, atm, tourist agencies, supermarkets, etc. It´s very safe too.
There´s so many places at a walking distance, but if you want to go to a shopping mall, or other tourist sites, I recommend to use taxis (we usually use the same which you can call anytime). They are cheap, you can go everywhere paying not much. Buses are something maybe you don´t want to experience because of the incredible heat inside and the loud music.
You can have daily trips to several places as well, like Tayrona Park, Taganga, Minca, Playa Cristal, Rodadero, even Barranquilla, and then come back. It´s a central place daily tours.
