About the place

Looking for a quiet, relaxing beachfront place with pool, fabulous view of the Caribbean, & 11 min walk to the Old City? This is for you!

This is a 3 bedroom/3.5 bath apartment on the 15th floor of a building built in 2010. The guest bedroom offered has a queen bed, so it is perfect for one person, two very close friends, or a couple.

Your bedroom has a ceiling fan, a mini split air conditioner, night tables, reading lamps, small desk with chair, full length mirror, a private full bath with walk in closet, floor to ceiling sliding glass doors which lead out to the balcony (with black out shades for siestas) & hammock just calling your name....

The kitchen is stocked for cooking & eating and there is counter seating. The living/dining area also has a ceiling fan and a mini split air conditioner (which cools the kitchen area also). There is a small laundry area with washer/dryer, drying racks & laundry sink available for your use.

APARTMENT AMENITIES:
* Air conditioning (mini-split in each room)
* Hot water (many Cartagena apartments don't have this so if you want it, make sure you ask)
* Ceiling fans
* Wifi (please bring your own laptop, tablet, etc)
* Washer with laundry soap
* Dryer & clothes drying racks
* Oven/stove (not all places in Cartagena have ovens!)
* Refrigerator/freezer
* Toaster/blender
* Various ways to make coffee (machine, French press, drip, Italian coffee maker)
* Self-serve/self-make continental breakfast (coffee, toast, cereal, eggs...); that's right, free breakfast
* Back up water & electrical systems (there are often water & electrical outages in Cartagena; this building has back ups for both which not all Cartagena buildings have--AC will not work when on back up generator but fans, fridge, lights, etc, will)
* Balcony going the length of the apartment
* Hammock just outside your room
* Hair dryer
* Iron/ironing board
* Bed linens
* Towels: bath, hand, beach/pool
* Locking bedroom door & locking closet
* Blackout curtain in bedroom
* Landline for calls to local landlines
* Cleaning supplies
* Weekly housecleaning if you are staying longer than a week

Possible at additional expense:
* Additional housecleaning during your stay
* Home cooked Colombian meal(s)

NOTE: there is no TV/cable, but you can download/stream on to your device!

BUILDING AMENITIES:
* Pool (15 x 4 meters), jacuzzi, sauna, dining/social area (9 am to 6 pm; 7th floor)
*24 hour doorman
* Elevator
* Pharmacy with mini-mart on ground floor (grocery store within a 5 minute walk)
* Helicopter landing pad on the roof (seriously! Let me know if you'll be arriving by chopper :)

I will be staying in the apartment also and will be around during your stay. There may on occasion also be someone in the 3rd bedroom, either another AirBNBer or a visiting friend or family member. I have lived in Cartagena for over two years and would be happy to help in any way I can either via email/phone prior to your arrival or during your stay.

I partner with 'Pack for a Purpose', an organization that links travelers who'd like to help fulfill wish lists of non-profits in developing countries. I know a couple of community organizations in Cartagena who would love to have your help!
