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.

The apartment is just like the pictures or better, the views are sensational. We had a small issue with the elevator but overall, we had a great experience during our stay.
Will definitely recommend this place, the location is excellent, close to the city center and walking distance to everything you may need. The apartment is very clean and equip with everything you might need. Santiago (the host) is also very responsive to inquiries.
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!
Feb. 2015. We (2) stayed for 9 days. The apto. was as described and clean. We enjoyed every minute. We did some cooking for the breakfast or for the evening. Kitchen has nearly everything you need. Relaxed in the nights on the loggia with glas of red wine / beer and cheese. The brezze was pleasant and we did not need the AC in the living room. Just leave the glas sliding door and windows open. Edgar was very friendly and helpfull in case we had questions. My nickname is "The Complainer" and after 9 days no complains. So, we can really recomment to stay at the Oceanfront Penthouse. Santiago allways answers fast.
Hemos quedado muy satisfechos con el Apto, gracias Santiago y Edgar por todo, hasta pronto.

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!
Location was perfect! At Bocagrande, which is the upcoming area of Cartagena, near the beach (can actually see and hear the surf from every room!), great restaurants and bars in walking distance, friendly people, easy to get a taxi to old town. The area of the beach (to left walking out) has a bunch of beach activities like jet skis, boats, wild ski board thing, water taxi to the islands, and restaurants on the water. There is a convenience store right in the building plus a larger one right across the street. There is 24x7 building security, but thankfully it didn't seem like an area that needed it. Rooms - very clean and bright with lots of windows and a sliding door allowing the ocean breeze in. Everything was in working condition and modern (ie, not someone's dumping ground for their old junk...new functioning stuff) including an Apple TV and WiFi that was pretty fast. We like cooking in sometimes and were able to do so with the full kitchen. There were only 3 of us staying for the week, but could easily see it comfortably accommodating more - especially with 2 full bathrooms. Also nice to have a washer there so you can pack less clothes and just do a load of laundry during the stay. Very relaxing area and calming stay for us - top floor so you don't hear the road noise and people chatter.
Santiago fue un excelente huesped, muy respuetuoso de las reglas del edificio, aunque su estadía fue corta, sin duda le rentaría uno de mis apartamentos de nuevo!
understanding and polite guests
Santiago was clean, quiet and respectful of the other guests and my staff. I would recommend him as a guest to any host and he is welcome back anytime. I hope he considers my apartment as his second home in his future travels to Medellin. Thank you for staying at the Penthouse Santiago!
Santiago was a very good guest. He was very discrete and peaceful. You won't figure out he's there, even when he's around :) Thanks for stayin' at our place.
