The magic of Cartagena is in wandering the streets of the beautiful colonial walled city. Choose these apartments and you are right in the heart of that magic each day of your stay -- your balconies await! I work with 14 total apartments in two buildings nearly across the street from each other in the Old City of Cartagena--rent multiple apartments for your large group! RATES will vary depending on the number of apartments needed; please let me know your needs & I happily provide a quote! At the Balcones Apartments location (described in this listing), there are eleven renovated apartments (studio and one bedroom units; some can combine to be two bedroom apartments) that can be rented all together to accommodate up to 26 people if every bed/sofabed space is used. They are on the second...The magic of Cartagena is in wandering the streets of the beautiful colonial walled city. Choose these apartments and you are right in the heart of that magic each day of your stay -- your balconies await! I work with 14 total apartments in two buildings nearly across the street from each other in the Old City of Cartagena--rent multiple apartments for your large group! RATES will vary depending on the number of apartments needed; please let me know your needs & I happily provide a quote! At the Balcones Apartments location (described in this listing), there are eleven renovated apartments (studio and one bedroom units; some can combine to be two bedroom apartments) that can be rented all together to accommodate up to 26 people if every bed/sofabed space is used. They are 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. This arrangement would be great for a large family or group of friends, coming to Cartagena for vacation, a wedding, and/or any other special event! You can rent some or all of these apartments, depending on what your party needs. Perhaps you are a group of 8-12 and want to rent an entire floor? This would give you up to 6 separate rooms, 6 full baths, 5 double beds, and a sofa bed. Have more or fewer people in your group? Ask me & I would be happy to give you options for parties of 1 to 38 guests!! ----------------------------------------------------- ACCOMMODATION HIGHLIGHTS: *Balconies overlooking Calles de la Moneda &/or Segunda de Badillo--great people watching! *Teak bistro table & chairs on the balconies *Double paned windows & balcony doors with black out shades *Full baths with rain shower heads *40' flat screen TV in each room *Kitchenette in each room with small refrigerator, coffee machine, induction burner, toaster, and basics for making (& eating! :) light meals *Beautiful coralina stone walls & finishing touches ----------------------------------------------------- APARTMENT AMENITIES: *Hot water in the shower and sinks -- not all places in Cartagena have this! *Air conditioning (mini-split in each room) *Ceiling fans *Wifi/Internet (DEDICATED BROADBAND!) *DirecTV *Bed linens *Towels: dish, hand, bath & beach *Personal soap *Toilet paper *Hair dryer *Safe *Smoke detector ----------------------------------------------------- BUILDING AMENITIES: *Rooftop terrace & 'mirador' -- great views! *Tourist information *First aid kit *Fire extinguisher ----------------------------------------------------- UPON REQUEST: *Baby crib *Iron/ironing board ----------------------------------------------------- OPTIONAL SERVICES (at additional expense): *Housekeeping during your stay *Laundry service *Tour guide services ----------------------------------------------------- There is a door from the street with stairs to the second & third floors from which all Balcones apartments are accessed and which guests share. Guests will have the key to this main door as well as to their own individual apartment. There is also a roof deck with a 'mirador' and great views of Cartagena! All Balcones guests have access to this. ************************************************* NOTE!! Pricing will vary depending on total number of guests and number of individual bedrooms/apartments you would like. When you make a request, please let me know how many bedrooms & beds you would like to have and whether using a sofabed in a living room is an option. We look forward to having you!More

Interaction with guests
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!

About the neighbourhood
Balcones apartments are located in the San Diego section of the magical Old City of Cartagena, within the 500 year old Spanish colonial walls. Colonial architecture abounds! The building is on the corner of Calles Segunda de Badillo and la Moneda, which are busy and lively streets during the day but quiet at night. There are shops and small restaurants on these streets while just at the other end of Calle Segunda de Badillo is the beautiful Parque Fernandez de Madrid, with cafes with outdoor seating, restaurants, a chocolate museum, and more. At the far end of the Calle de la Moneda block is the Exito department store which sells everything from groceries to electronics plus has an ATM. One street away in the other direction you'll find
Getting around
Walking is the best way to get around the Walled City – it’s great wandering the maze of quaint streets. But you are never far from the surrounding walls so you don’t have to worry about accidentally straying too far! If you are in a hurry or want to venture outside the walls, taxis are inexpensive and easily flagged on the street. We are a 5-10 minute/US$4 taxi ride from the airport, and a 5-10 minute/US$2 taxi ride away from other sites/areas, such as San Felipe Castle (the huge old Spanish fort) or the tourist dock (for the boats to the Rosario Islands, where many prefer to go for the beach), or the beaches of Bocagrande, Laguito and Castillogrande.
