You’ll love sipping your glass of wine, beer, fresh fruit juice or morning coffee while taking in the colorful Cartagena streets from this balcony! This beautiful studio is ideal for a single person, a couple, or two very close friends.
The building also has a great roof deck where you can meet fellow travelers & get an even more 'bird's eye' view of the beautiful Old City!

This apartment is one of eleven apartments located on the 2nd & 3rd floors (walk up) of a three-story building (a clothing store is on the ground floor); this apartment (201) is on the 2nd floor. There is a door from the street with stairs to the second & third floors which guests of the eleven apartments 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.
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!
We look forward to having you!

I've lived most of my life in the U.S. but have also lived for a couple of months to up to two years in different countries: Germany, Spain, Australia, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, & Belize. Since 2011 I've been living a somewhat nomadic lifestyle while exploring, working & volunteering in new & old places in North, Central & South America and Europe. It's a great way to keep learning!
I was fortunate to meet a couple from Dallas, who own the Cartagena, Colombia, & Ambergris Caye, Belize, vacation rentals I'm listing. They asked me to help them out and I've fallen into doing something that I love -- helping people like you with their travels. Let me help you with your dream vacation! In the fall of 2015, I was lucky enough to be able to buy my own apartment in Cartagena, Colombia, and rent out the second bedroom when I'm there and the whole apartment when I'm not. I love playing direct host also!
We also partner with 'Pack for a Purpose', an organization that links travelers who'd like to help fulfill wish lists of non-profits in developing countries. We work with Fundación La Vecina, a community organization in Cartagena, and in Belize we partner with Ambergris Caye Elementary School (ACES) and the Saga Humane Society in San Pedro. We'd love to have your help!
