Looking for a quiet, relaxing beachfront place with a pool, balcony with fabulous view of the Caribbean, & 11 min walk to the Old City? This modern apartment with AC, hot water, & strong wifi is perfect for a single person, couple, or couple of friends--your choice of a queen bed or two single beds!
The apartment is on the 15th floor with a balcony that goes the length of the apartment -- you'll love watching the sun set each evening over the sea! You also have a great view north to the Marbella/Crespo area of the coast and beyond, as well as a sneak peak at the part of the Old City wall called "La Tenaza." There are windows in the back of the apartment that give you a view of the Popa, the highest point in Cartagena, as well as the Castillo San Felipe.
The building is in the Cabrero district & was built in 2010, has 24 hour reception, two elevators; and a pool (15Mx4Mx1.3M), jacuzzi, sauna, & social area on the 7th floor.
Your bedroom has a US standard queen sized bed bed (1.53 x 2 mts) OR two twin beds (let me know your preference) along with reading lamps, small desk with chair, full length mirror, en suite full bath with walk in closet, floor to ceiling sliding glass doors which lead out to the balcony, & hammock just outside!
(This apartment is actually a two bedroom apartment but in this listing it is described as being rented out as a one bedroom apartment with the second bedroom locked up.)
The kitchen is well-stocked for cooking & eating and there is counter seating. The living area has nice seating plus opens right up to the balcony, where there is a small table and chairs. There is a half bath off the living area.
Each room has a ceiling fan and a brand new mini split air conditioner.

I've lived most of my life in the U.S. but have also lived for a couple of months to up to two years in different countries: Germany, Spain, Australia, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, & Belize. Since 2011 I've been living a somewhat nomadic lifestyle while exploring, working & volunteering in new & old places in North, Central & South America and Europe. It's a great way to keep learning!
I was fortunate to meet a couple from Dallas, who own the Cartagena, Colombia, & Ambergris Caye, Belize, vacation rentals I'm listing. They asked me to help them out and I've fallen into doing something that I love -- helping people like you with their travels. Let me help you with your dream vacation! In the fall of 2015, I was lucky enough to be able to buy my own apartment in Cartagena, Colombia, and rent out the second bedroom when I'm there and the whole apartment when I'm not. I love playing direct host also!
We also 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. We work with Fundación Pescador de Letras, a community organization in Cartagena, plus animal rescue group Cartagena Paws; and in Belize we partner with Ambergris Caye Elementary School (ACES) and the Saga Humane Society in San Pedro. We'd love to have your help!
