Pretty easy to check in and checkout. Everything was ready before we arrived.
Great location, and the apartment is exactly as shown in pictures. All the amenities you need are provided for in a clean ambience of luxury.
The building itself is situated amongst shops, restaurants, and close proximity to the beach; however, it is an older building with small and slow-moving elevators.
Yet, that is easily overlooked once you enter the actual apartment itself.
Santiago is the perfect host and responded quickly to any queries I had during my one week stay.
Temptation was there to hire him as a personal guide :)
I highly recommend his apartment for the discerning traveller!
The apartment was beautiful and Santiago was very helpful and accommodating. Very close beach access, taxis available right outside of building and plenty to do in the area. We were here on business for a week and even extended our trip because we enjoyed the experience so much. Thank you!
The apartment ist just amazing!!
Better than I expected!
10 Minutes cab-ride to the city and the beach is in the front of the Apt.
There are supermarkets, restaurants and everything you need.
I will definitely come back!
Thank you so much!
The apartment was exactly as described, what I loved the most aside from the amazing views was the cleanliness. It is a 5 minute walk from calle San Martin where there are a lot of restaurants and shops. It was easy to get to and even easier to check in and out. I will definitely recommend it to family and friends.
Santiago checked in with us during the stay to make sure everything was okay. He responded within a few hours to any questions we had before and during the trip.
The space and the views of this penthouse apartment are breathtaking. It was a great place to relax after touring the walled city or walking the area around the apartment.
Santiago was an extremely attentive and accommodating host. He promptly responded to emails and regularly checked in with me to ensure that everything was running smoothly and that all of our needs were being met.
The apartment itself is absolutely stunning...the beautiful 360 degree panoramic ocean views are only matched by the modern elegance of the apartment's furnishings and decor. There's also a washer in the unit which which came in handy and flat screen televisions in both bedrooms.
There are an abundance of restaurants along the beach (which is literally steps away) and a market across the street (easy access to an ATM and day-to-day items). Old town is also a short cab ride away.
I highly recommend this apartment! My only recommendation would be, if possible, to spend time here on the weekend as things are more lively in the surrounding area.
Happy traveling everyone!

I am Colombian who works in Washington DC for an international organization. I fell in Love with Cartagena and decided to invest in an apartment so I can visit the city more often and rent it while I am not using it.
