Cartagena's magic is in wandering the streets of the beautiful colonial walled city; these apartments are right in the heart of that magic and offer great views--your balconies & roof deck await!
There are 11 apartments on two floors of this building, all studios or one bedroom units (some connecting!). Rent an entire floor & you'll have your privacy yet be all together!
RATES will vary depending on the number of apartments needed; please let me know your needs & I happily provide a quote!
There are eleven renovated Balcones Apartments on the second and third floors (walk up) of a three-story building in Cartagena's Walled City and are the only apartments in the building. They are studio and one bedroom units; some can combine to be two bedroom apartments. Five are on the second floor and six are on the third floor.

**Small studios (1-2 guests, 1 double bed): $90/night; there are three on the 2nd floor and four on the 3rd floor (& some of these studios can connect to other units to make 2 bedroom apartment). Four have balconies; three do not.

Общение с гостями
Once booked, guests receive a multi-page document (in English) and website with information on the apartments and Cartagena. I have lived in this city for more than two years, traveled around Colombia quite a bit and would be happy to answer any questions or give advice via email or phone prior to your trip.
Upon arrival in Cartagena, our multilingual (Spanish/English/French) apartment manager Benjamin will meet you at the apartment at the agreed upon time to let you in, show you the place, and give you keys. Should you have a question about the apartment or you want tourism assistance, laundry service, or have questions while there, feel free to ask!

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!
