Overview

About the property

The ideal place to relax, in from of the beach and close to the city center.

Our apartment is located in Cartagena’s Marbella neighborhood, across from the beach and 8 blocks from the historic city center.

You’ll really love our place because it allows you to be in Cartagena, very close to the walled city, right across from the beach, with all the amenities to enjoy your free time: gym, swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, BBQ area; as well as work and stay connected with your friends and family with no interruption, thanks to our independent internet connection. Additionally, both bedrooms and one of the bathrooms have great panoramic views of the ocean.

This apartment is great for couples, families, friends and business travelers.

It’s a spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment (the master bedroom has an in-suite bathroom – both bedrooms and in-suite bathroom have an ocean view), kitchen, living/dining room, balcony, and work area.

Both bedrooms have an ocean view and include two beds each, so the apartment is optimal for 2, 3 and/or 4 people.

The bathrooms and kitchen have hot water, and all the rooms including the living room have air conditioning. The kitchen is fully equipped; microwave, coffee maker, blender, etc.

The apartment comes with blankets, towels, shampoo, conditioner and soap.

Additionally, there is an assigned parking spot in the buildings garage and the possibility to use the shared parking at the front of the building.

The rent includes use of all social areas: pool, 2 jacuzzis, kids game area, gym, sauna and steam room, BBQ area (the BBQ area is located on the pool deck and 24hr notice must be given to administration if you want to use it and there’s an additional 10 dollars’ charge from the building for cleaning of this area).

The building has 3 elevators and is located on la Carrera 2, very close to the airport (approx. 7 minutes away), across from the ocean and some 8 blocks from the historic Cartagena city center.

The building also has its own electric generator that ensures the supply of electricity all the time.

We, as foreigners living in Cartagena, chose this apartment because it’s the perfect spot for being close to the historic city center and shopping where there are countless restaurants, clothing stores, handmade crafts, etc., across from the beach and in a peaceful area where you can relax.

There’s a supermarket located one block away and behind the building there are small shops.

We can help you with anything you need: restaurant recommendations, places to visit, etc. so you have a great stay in the city.

We speak English, Spanish, and Portuguese.

_____________________

Nuestro apartamento está ubicado en el barrio de Marbella, justo al frente de la playa y a unas 8 cuadras del centro histórico.

Vas a amar mi lugar porque te permite estar en Cartagena, muy cerca de la ciudad amurallada, justo al frente del mar, con todas las comodidades tanto para disfrutar del tiempo libre: gimnasio, pileta, jacuzzi, sauna seco y húmedo, zona de bbq; así como trabajar y estar conectado con familiares y amigos, sin problemas ya que contamos con conexión a internet independiente. Además de las hermosas vistas panorámicas desde ambos cuartos y uno de los baños.

Mi lugar es bueno para amigos, parejas, familias y viajeros de negocios.

Para amigos y familias, porque es el lugar ideal para descansar, estar tranquilos, en un ámbito seguro, frente al mar y cerca del centro.

Por la misma razón es ideal para parejas, a lo que se suma que es un lugar muy romático para ver las puestas de sol y tener una linda cena en el balcón, con las tenues luces de la ciudad de fondo (obvio que si vas con amigos o tu familia, también te recomiendo la cena o el desayuno en el balcón! Te va a encantar!).

Y para viajeros de negocios, contamos con una conexión de internet estable que te asegura poder trabajar aún cuando se corta la luz. La velocidad de internet promedio es de 4.67 Mbps Download speed y de 0.62 Mbps Upload speed (soporta video llamadas).

Se trata de un apartamento amplio, de dos alcobas con dos baños (la alcoba principal tiene baño en suite – ambas alcobas y el baño en suite tienen vista al mar), cocina, living-comedor, balcón y zona de labores.

Ambas alcobas tienen vista al mar y cómodamente pueden alojarse 2, 3 o 4 personas.

Los baños y la cocina tienen agua caliente. Y tanto los cuartos como el living tienen aire acondicionado.

La cocina está totalmente equipada, cuenta con microondas, cafetera, licuadora, etc.

El apartamento se entrega con sábanas, toallas, shampoo, crema de enjuague y jabón.

Además, posee parqueadero propio cubierto en el garaje del edificio, y posibilidad de uso del parqueadero común frente al edificio.

El alquiler incluye el uso de todas las áreas sociales: piscinas, 2 jacuzzis, zona de juegos para niños, gimnasio, sauna seco y sauna húmedo, área de bbq (el área de bbq se encuentra en la terraza de la piscina y en caso de querer usar la parrilla, se debe avisar 24 hs antes a la administración y su uso tiene un costo adicional de 10 dólares que cobra el edificio para la limpieza de la misma).

El edificio cuenta con 3 ascensores y se encuentra ubicado sobre la carrera 2, muy cerca del aeropuerto, desde donde puedes llegar en taxi (7 minutos aproximadamente), justo al frente del mar y a unas 8 cuadras del centro histórico de Cartagena.

Además, tiene generador eléctrico propio que asegura el suministro de energía eléctrica todo el tiempo.

Nosotros, como extranjeros viviendo en Cartagena, lo elegimos porque es el lugar perfecto para estar cerca del centro histórico y del shopping donde hay muchos restaurantes, negocios de ropa, artesanías, etc., frente a la playa y en un área tranquila donde también uno puede relajarse.

Marbella es uno de los barrios más seguros de la ciudad y el apartamento se encuentra ubicado en una de las mejores zonas, sobre la Av Santander, frente al mar con una vista privilegiada.

A una cuadra hay un supermercado y en la parte de atrás del edificio hay almacenes.

Las líneas de autobuses son de fácil acceso. Transcaribe (el nuevo sistema de transporte de Cartagena, con aire acondicionado y muy rápido) pasa justo frente al edificio y tiene su parada a una cuadra (utilizando este servicio, puedes llegar al centro histórico en 5 minutos y el precio es de 0.70 dólares aproximadamente por persona).

También, su ubicación sobre una avenida principal, hace que tengas fácil acceso a taxis sobre la misma o bien, puedes encontrarlos en su parada oficial a 30 metros del apartamento (llegar del apartamento al centro histórico en taxi, también te tomará unos 5 minutos y el valor del taxi es de aproximadamente 2 dólares).

Además, el apartamento se encuentra a pocos minutos del aeropuerto (unos 7 minutos desde el aeropuerto al apartamento).

Podemos ayudarte con todo lo que necesites: recomendaciones de restaurantes, lugares para visitar, etc. para que tengas una excelente estadía en la ciudad.

Hablamos español, inglés y portugués.

Wonderful property and owner

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 3 just returned from 4-nights at this beautiful apartment. It was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, all the amenities you could need, and great air conditioning! We were greeted by the lovely owner and her thorough and helpful package of information on the apartment, the building, the area, and so many great things to see and places to eat in Cartagena. The building is very secure and the neighborhoods safe for walking. And the apartment is less than 5 minutes (by car or taxi) from the airport, and about the same distance into the walled city.

Rosángela was very responsive to our questions throughout our stay. Great hostess!

Loved the colorful hammock on the balcony! My husband and I each took a turn at napping in the warm sunshine, swaying in the breeze, and enjoying the sounds of the surf down below.

A beautiful, modern home by the sea!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautifully and thoughtfully decorated. Everything that we could possibly need was provided. The views of the ocean were spectacular. The owner was very responsive, helpful and flexible. The hotel next door has a lovely restaurant for meals. We loved it and we will stay there again when we return to Cartegena.
