This is a contemporary Design Loft, located in a classic building from the 1940s in the center of the historical old city. Modern in design with direct ocean views, a true sanctuary in the bustle and heat of the Caribbean gem that is Cartagena de Indias.

The space


Thanks for considering our apartment and hope it might be what you are looking for to enjoy your stay in this lovely city

This is a contemporary Design Loft, located in a classic building from the 1940s in the center of the historical old city. A true sanctuary in the bustle and heat of the Caribbean gem that is Cartagena de Indias.

The loft is a romantic getaway oasis with a comfortable queen size real bed, large closet, living area, kitchen and stylish bath.

The apartment being in the only tall building in old Cartagena, and with large floor to ceiling windows, enjoys a fabulous view to the sea and the charming ceramic tile rooftops of the surrounding colonial era houses.

Gas stove, toaster oven, fridge, coffee maker, good pots & pans, all utensils, blender...... etc.

Large bathroom with full tub and shower; hot water and solid pressure! also top of the line toilet.

- 2 Ceiling Fans
- 2 Floor fans
- Free WIFI
- All pillows, bed sheets, cover and towels are included
- Hot Water
- Washer
- Iron & Board
- Sound system with Bluetooth capabilities

We receive many questions about our not having an AC unit. I hope that this helps explain our choice.

We had a desire to maintain our body at a temperature that corresponds comfortably with the surroundings. Whenever we stayed in a place with AC we found that the drastic changes between the cold inside and the hot outside invariably led to us getting 'summer colds'. We have gone with the traditional Caribbean method and have designed the apartment to stay relatively cool due to:
1. North Facing & Never Receiving Direct Sun
2. Large Windows
3. Four Fans (2 Ceiling, a Standing and an HVF Tower)


** Note: Weekly & Monthly stays include one cleaning during each week.

**please check our guidebook for local recommendations

Drop us a line if you have any questions and let us know a bit about yourselves.

Thank you for checking us out!

Guest access

Access to the Full Loft Apartment.
24 Hour Door Person / Guard

Interaction with guests

We are always able to help via AirBnB messaging and we work with the building management to coordinate your stay.

Other things to note

The apartment is in a FANTASTIC PRIME LOCATION, the neighborhood is packed with all sort of restaurants, cafes, bars and shopping but on a street that still remains quite at night.

Located next to the University of Cartagena, makes the block very lively during the day with street vendors selling delicious fruits, fresh coconut water, and yummy cheese arepas (corn patties).

We are an easy walk to all points within the old city from the Santa Clara to the Santa Theresa to the walls to all churches, restaurants, and sights. Though the best thing to do is just wander the streets!

Amazing apartment located in old city, walking distance to all of the cool stuff there that you would want to check out, there is an amazing bakery/market right across the street. The door people are very nice, the apartment has everything you need, comfy bed, living area, great kitchen. The view is incredible, city view as well as ocean view. Hope to stay here again sometime, Ethan was an excellent host!

Great location to stay in the old city. Communication between the doorman and our host could improve, since when we arrived the doorman didn't know what apartment number we were going. The only information we had was that the doorman was going to give us the keys, luckily our host was very quick to respond. My only other comments would be the cleanliness of the place when we arrived and some lightbulbs not working, just regular maintenance of the place.

This was an amazing place to stay in the Centro. There are views of the ocean from the living room and bathroom. Plus it's right in the heart of the Centro. Everything you need is within walking distance. I would absolutely recommend staying here if you visit Cartagena.
