“Ideal Beach stay for an Amazing Rate”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I studied in Cartagena for a month and stayed at this apartment for 2 weeks. Being a student, I saw or heard about almost 20 different apartments/condos/hostels that other students stayed at. Whenever someone came to my apartment to hang out and go to the beach, the comments were universal... "You paid how much for all of this??? I made a mistake staying where I did!!"

This apartment offers the best of both worlds: a $3 taxi to the old city and a better beach experience than Bocagrande. My school was in Getsemani and it was so easy to get to and from there. Accessing the walled city at any time of day was easy as well. While Bocagrande is fun, the vendors that hassle you are so intrusive that I stopped going. This apartment is in an edificio in Leguito. Leguito is a 10 minute walk from the heart of Bocagrande but is much more low-key and has a fraction of the vendors. The beach in from of the building is tiny but is very tranquil and is perfect for swimming and relaxing. After having dangerous men hassle me for 5 minutes at a time about illicit activity in Bocagrande, staying at the apartment beach was heaven. Mostly Colombian families use the beach.

The apartment is very comfortable and had 2 key features i loved (that most apartment rentals don't have):
1) a hotel style safe in the bedroom for securing my valuables
2) a water cooler - do NOT underestimate this. Cartagena is hot and i had to buy several large jugs of water a day while staying at a hotel. Having the full water cooler in the apartment was great. It was nice to have constant access to fresh, cool water for drinking, cooking with, and using to refill bottles for on the go

Overall, a great value and would highly recommend

This apartment is exactly what you would expect. Modern appliances, great location, visitor friendly, comfortable, and nice newer construction. Owner is available for any issues as he lives in the building, and responds to any issues or even questions about the area.

“Super organized apartment American style in Colombia”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

So happy with our stay in this apartment! The location was great! Everything in the apartment was organized with a great view of the beach. Air conditioning in the living room and bedroom! Cable television and stereo with ipod dock. Shower with hot water that worked with no difficult gas units to try and figure out. Basically a well run and organized American unit in Cartagena, Colombia. I will probably try and stay there every time I return to the area! Jack was a great help with anything I needed and provided a lot of information about buying and investing in the area should I chose to go that particular route. I will be back for sure!!!!!

“Best offer, Best decission”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

When looking options for my vacations this was the only place to stay with great reviews. Honestly, it was a great decision. The price is great for all the commodities that you get: TV, CABLE, AUDIO SYSTEM, AC, EQUIPPED KITCHEN, WIFI, BEACH JUST OUTSIDE, SECURITY. Jack is very friendly, since the moment you booked with him he will answer all your questions. The place is 5 min in taxi from Bocagrande in taxi but walking will be more exciting specially around the beach. The apartment is located in a tower with a doorman (security guys) who keeps tracks of people going in and out, they are very kind and made me feel secure. Honestly don't waste your time trying to find another rental vacation, I am sure this is the BEST PLACE TO STAY WITH THE BEST PRICE. By the way you would LOVE CARTAGENA.
