Our holiday flat is up for you to enjoy it. Ten-minute walk away from the airpot and five-minute taxi ride away from the old city, our place is a new-built residency with leisure amenities on the top floor and a lovely view of the ocean and cienaga.
The space is big enough to spend time in the apartment and relax. We have three rooms –one with a private bathroom– and a small tv/rest space. There's an additional bathroom. There's also good natural light, though you can also use the blackout for the windows –this is the Caribbean and you don't want the place to get super hot during the day! We have a nice view of the sea and the old city in the distance.
You'll have access to our kitchen, living, dining room, bathrooms, bedrooms, tv/rest space, and our cozy laundry room –next to the kitchen. We recommend you use the hammock or our "chinchorro" (similar to the hammock) and spend time at the balcony to enjoy the breezy afternoons of Cartagena.
Interaction with guests
Though we won't normally be in Cartagena at the time of your stay, we have family in the city. My mother was born in Cartagena, so we have relatives who can assist you as friendly as we would. We'll make sure you get their contact details.
Other things to note
We'd be happy to share as many details about plans to do while you stay in the city. We can recommend activities beyond beach and the old city visits. Cartagena has ecotourism options and a nightlife scene that tourists rarely get exposed to. We know the tricks of a native for you to truly make the most of your visit.
We also suggest for you to bring a USB stick with films to enjoy in the TV.
Though the apartment is well equipped with utilities, we expect guests to use them wisely. Water and electricity are two of the most scarce resources in the Caribbean, for example. The apartment has air conditioning in all bedrooms and the living, but we suggest guests use it only at night and in the bedrooms (at a temperature of 23C), so they can sleep comfortably. During daytime, we strongly recommend guests use the three powerful fans we have at home. Smoking, drug consumption and excessive drinking are not allowed within the building.
