The apartment provides high quality accommodation for a lovely holiday at a very reasonable price; it is equipped with air conditioning throughout.

It is located on the 7th floor of a recently built complex within walking distance from the International Airport (no airplane noise) and 5 minutes from the Colonial Walled City by car. Because of the strategic location of the building, you will find no traffic problems when traveling to the Old City or to the north of the city towards Barranquilla. Long term renters welcome.

PLEASE NOTE that currently, in front of the building a road is being constructed, as part of 'The Anillo Vial de Crespo' project -see pictures-(expected completion date: October 2015); nevertheless, from the balcony, the guests can enjoy a magnificent view of the sea and of spectacular sunsets. There is access to the balcony not only from the sitting room but also from the two bedrooms.

At Hotel Las Americas, 5 minutes on foot, you can find the nearest beach. There is free access to all beaches in Cartagena.

ESPAÑOL

El apartamento brinda la oportunidad de quedarse en un sitio de lujo para pasar unas vacaciones espectaculares a bajo costo.

Esta equipado con aire acondicionado en todo los espacios.

Esta localizado en el piso 7 de un edifico que termino de construirse en Octubre de 2013. El edificio queda a 5 minutos caminando del aeropuerto internacional de Cartagena (no se oye el ruido de los aviones).

Esta localizado a 10 minutos en carro de la ciudad amurallada y su localizacion es tan estrategica que no se experimentan problemas con el trafico que va hacia la ciudad vieja o que sale en direccion opuesta hacia Barranquilla. Por su cercania al Hotel Las Americas, su ubicacion es ideal para profesionales de la Medicina que asisten a congresos en la ciudad de Cartagena.

POR FAVOR NOTE que en este momento, al frente del edificio se esta completando la construccion de una via para automotores, la que hace parte del proyecto del 'Anillo Vial de Crespo' -mirar fotos- (Fecha estimada en que se finalizara el proyecto=Octubre 2015). A pesar de la construccion de esta via, desde la terraza del apartamento se puede disfrutar de una hermosisima vista al mar y de unos atardeceres espectaculares. No solo la sala, sino tambien los dormitorios tienen vista al mar y salida directa a la terraza.

La playa queda a 5 minutos caminando a la altura del Hotel Las Americas. La piscina infinita y el jacuzzi del Condominio son espectaculares. Hay piscina separada para niños (consulte por internet informacion sobre el condominio escribiendo en su search engine 'beachclubcartagena'),

Hay servicio de porteria las 24 horas del dia.

En el vecindario de Crespo se pueden encontrar restaurantes de comida rapida, dos supermercados, iglesia y otros servicos como cajeros automaticos.

Se acepta pago con tarjetas de credito o a traves de giros bancarios o Paypal. Los pagos pueden hacerse en pesos colombianos, dolares americanos o libras esterlinas. Las tarifas por noche se pueden consultar directamente en las distintas monedas (mire un pequenho letrero a mano derecha arriba encima del cuadro llamado Rates & Availability llamado 'select currency' ).

Se cobra un deposito de 25% del valor total de la estadia al hacer la reservacion debiendose cancelar el balance restante 15 dias antes de su llegada al apartamento. Se hace la completa devolucion del deposito, si se cancela la reservacion 30 dias antes de la llegada. De otra manera el propietario se reserva el derecho a quedarse con el deposito. No hay costos adicionales. El valor de los impuestos esta incluido en el precio.

Para asegurar una estadia mas agradable, se pone a disposicion de los huespedes, instrucciones simples que incluyen el codigo WiFi, y numeros para marcar por el citofono para conectarse con los porteros.

A su llegada, mi contacto en Cartagena le hara la entrega de las llaves.

El apartamento se entrega con camas tendidas, toallas limpias en los baños, toallas playeras para 5 personas, jabones y papel higienico y con agua purificada en botella en dispensador electrico.

La dueña del apartamento, habla español e ingles y puede ser contactada directamente por e-mail o por telefono ( al llamar por telefono tener en cuenta que la dueña vive en Inglaterra y que la diferencia de hora con Colombia es de 6 horas mas tarde en Inglaterra comparado con Colombia).

Se puede poner a disposicion de los viajeros una empleada de servicio que cobra por aparte la cantidad de $45.000 por dia por hacer el aseo y por cocinar. Los huespedes deben pagarle a ella directamente. Ella puede hacer las compras entregandole por adelantado, el dinero necesario y su menu es de comida Cartagenera.

Camas disponibles:

Cama King size

Dos camas sencillas

Un sofacama para una persona

Una cama plegable

About the Owner

I was born in Colombia. I left Colombia 30 years ago and I live in England where I work as a medical doctor. I love Colombia and I visit there every year with my husband who is british and my two children. I always wanted to have my own place in Cartagena. I finally fulfilled my dream last year. I spent a month in my apartment last summer and I can happily say, I had a lovely time. You can contact me through this page or via telephone.

hello Maria,



With pain in my heart I left your apartment….it is not only because of the love for Paula, but it is because your apartment is a perfect place, environment, building, and facilities etc etc.

I enjoyed every moment in your apartment. The people in the building are very polite.

And the pool, spa and gym are fantastic.



Cartagena is a wonderful place to experience the colombian way of life.



Again very very much for your hospitality!! and till the next time…thats sure !!



Big hug,



Marcel

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely, and the owner was very accommodating. Building and facilities are attractive and modern. The 50-meter lap pool was great for a swim, but it closed after dark, which I thought was a bit odd, but not problematic. The view is wonderful and I'm sure will be even better once the construction is finished across the street. Neighborhood was safe, and we had no problems walking about. Security at the building is tight.

Our flight was changed to a later time, and the owner allowed us to stay in the apartment until the evening after our due checkout. It was a nice gesture which made our stay more relaxing. I highly recommend this property for 5 people or less!

Good Value With An Ocean View

  • 4 of 5

We rented here for one month. The house came fully equipped with everything we needed. It was clean and nicely furnished. Everything was included in the rental cost, cable,wifi, electric, water, etc.. The owner was available and she had an administrator available in Cartagena 24/7. The location could not have been more perfect....sitting on the balcony looking at the ocean and listening to the waves was a plus. I would recommend staying here.
