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

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.

Guest access

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.

We loved this apartment. So clean, modern and amply proportioned with all modern conveniences. Nicely decorated and no clutter. The view from the balcony is fantastic and the hammock oh so comfortable. We loved Crespo it is a beautiful residential area with a nice range of apartment buildings and houses. It feels very safe and relaxed and has a nice new restaurant just round the corner called el Callejon. There is a beach area a few blocks walk which is being developed with cycle paths and a skatepark, super peaceful as the area is over the top of the new traffic tunnel - no traffic! You can take bicicyle taxis from the apartment block around the area, to the supermarket or whatnot. Super Fun! We loved Sandra's recommended restaurant el Bistro in the old town. This place is the best - relaxed atmosphere, great prices, amazing food and cold beer on tap! To sum up - Highly recommended!

The neighbourhood was lovely and the description was good. I wish I had spent more time in the accommodation as it was a really lovely place. I felt it was the perfect accommodation for me as it catered for me in every way, weddings are not always perfectly planned but the accommodation and location couldn't of been better, so I'm super pleased.

Sandra's family's holiday home provided the perfect oasis for us during our visit to Cartagena. Great location in a quiet neighbourhood 10mins by taxi from the old town (from 6-10COP depending on where you take the taxi. Recommend the Tappsi app!) or walking distance to the airport. The apartment was well equipped with excellent air con/fans and an amazing roof top infinity pool to cool off! Thank you Sandra.

Our stay at Sandra's condo was awesome. The neighbor is really vibrant with lots of nice places to eat local food and get immersed in the culture. The condo itself is spacious and comfortable. Sitting in the hammock on the private balcony was a highlight. The roof top pool at night is a very neat experience. All in all I would love to visit again and would stay here again. Getting around town from here is very inexpensive and easy.

We had a wonderful stay at Sandra's apartment. It's in a nice quiet neighborhood, but still a short (7min)taxiride away from all the action. The ac was very welcoming as Cartagena has a warm and humid climate. The beds were nice and the kitchen had everything to make a nice breakfast. Definitely recommend going here for a few days to explore the beautiful Cartagena. If you want an unique experience look for a Chiva Night tour. Inclusive of unlimited rum, noisy Colombians, Vallenato music and lots of dancing!

I stayed here with my 2 friends and loved the place. It is safe and secure building with 24 hour concierge. It is very close to the old city by taxi or uber! The rooms are spacious and the apartment has a nice balcony to hang out in. Definitely recommend the place and would stay again.
