( 2800 sq. feet ) accesible from your own living-room. On this roof deck there is a built-in private small infinity shallow pool from where you can enjoy the most fabulous Caribbean sunsets.

The PH is fully furnished, with internet connection, 84´ smart TV, Wash and Dryer, fully equipped kitchen, linen, etc, etc. Other amenities include a castle-view outdoor Jacuzzi, imbedded on teak deck, and three gazebos plus outdoor cushioned platforms and beds.

    Beauitful place

    This penthouse was so beautiful, quiet in great location walking distance to all restaurants/bars. Alberto was a great host 24/7 available if there’s any issues. Ana the livein maid was amazing, cooks breakfast and lunch if you want. The pictures do not do justice how nice of a place this is, I would highly recommend staying here.

    5/5 Excellent

    Two thumbs up!

    Penthouse is in a perfect location, it’s clean and bright with an amazing deck. Ana and Nicholas were terrific and very helpful (Ana is a great cook). And Alberto is available 24/7 if you need him.

    Lovely, amazingly large terrace in old city of Cartagena

    My husband and I stayed at this property for several nights and enjoyed it thoroughly. The apartment is just as portrayed in the pictures. Master bedroom and second bedroom have air conditioning, but the best part is being able to sit in the breezy shade in one of the several seating areas in the beautifully landscaped terrace. There are both ocean and city wall views. Location is in the walled city and all shops and restaurants are walkable. Just to be transparent, the pool, although pretty, is a small, shallow wading pool. And Ana, the housemaid, is very present (as some other reviewers have noted.) . But she is lovely, makes a very good breakfast, and we were prepared for her presence. Overall, staying here was just as nice as we expected, and a swimmable pool would have earned the 5th star.

    5/5 Excellent

    Location location location

    The location is spot on! Very near all restaurants and activities yet on the outskirt and therefore quieter than you would expect. We were not bother by any noise while we were there for 5 nights. Staff is helpful with questions and needs but do hang out in the apartment which could be uncomfortable for some at times. Beds, pillows, and bedding in both rooms are better than most rental which makes for a very confortable sleep. Both have excellent air conditioning (a must!). The second bedroom is on the smallish side but perfect for kids (for couples as well but they would likely feel shortchanged when comparing to the spacious master bedroom). We hung out a lot in the master bedroom's "living room'' just to be in the air conditioning! The terrace is wonderful, gets a good breeze and furniture is comfortable. I did not expect much from the pool but it is surprisingly deep enough to sit and hang out while watching people walking on the fortifications. The historical centre and Getsemani is totally walkable in less than 2 days including a visit to the San Felipe Castillo). There are great restaurants in Cartagena so we spent a lot of time researching and trying new ones. We really like brunch at the Cafe Lunatico (try their Cava Sangria). We also chartered a private boat with Boats4us for the day and we had a good day visiting wonderful beaches on many islands an hour out of Cartegena. The sea was rough though so it is not for the faint of heart.
