Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4 on 2 queen beds)
American Owner, purchased the unit new pre-construction. Have visited Cartagena frequently over the last 10 years and watched the amazing growth in both BocaGrande and the old city. Wish we could chat before booking but that option has been removed after Expedia purchased vrbo and homeaway.
Steve purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Steve chose Bocagrande
This property is well appointed, first and foremost very comfortable pillow top mattresses on the two queen bed. Property is furnished for the times I visit, renting is incidental. Full size refrigerator, full size washer and dryer. Exceptional artwork, lots of linens, towels, kitchen has everything you need. Rent from American owner with confidence.
What makes this Condo unique
First and Foremost, you are dealing with a thoughtful owner, one who in furnishing the unit and maintaining has considered the comfort of others who might later occupy it. Before and while at my unit, I am available to answer questions and guide you as best I can, either in preparation for your trip or while you are already on site. In the morning have coffee on the balcony as the sun rises or walk on 2nd to Juan Valdez Cafe (the Starbucks of Colombia). Juan Valdez is a great people watching place. The unit is furnished with high quality furnishings and has after my viewing of some other units in the complex the best furnishings in Palmetto, with the exception of the penthouse. Full size, not Colombia size queen beds, custom drapes from the United States, custom fabric from the United States for the living room sectional sofa. Excellent building security and management and friendly staff. Bocagrande is the place to stay This unit is central to Bocagrande, on the beach and within walking distance to everything within the community. Large grocery stores, restaurants from local to high end.

good points - amazing location and great view
bad points - worn and used, NOT CLEAN, utensils had to be washed before using, soap holder was rusty, condo smelt moldy, mold in master bedroom bathroom, not consistent hot water. overall very used and warm needs an update and cleaning.
After years of 5 star reviews, I'm more than surprised. I have the apartment cleaned and aired out before every arrival. Lisa delayed her arrival 2 times and I did not air it out the day before she eventually arrived. The apartment is not moldy or dated. See photos. Kitchen cabinets are new spring 2019, new AC units spring 2019. Linens are replaced every 2 years. Water is an on demand gas system, clearly Lisa unfortunately did not review the written informational materials I provided. There is a saying that you can please all the people some of the time, some of the people all the time, but not all of the people all the time. I am sorry Lisa had issues, but I believe her issues are more personal and relate to the personal issues she went through which delayed her arrival date on multiple occasions. My unit is and always will be well maintained.
Very nice time. I enjoyed the condominium it was as described. Steve was very helpful and prompt in responding.
Great times in Cartagena
This condo and building were just what we needed for our trip. Stayed there with my brother for a birthday trip. Two comfortable bedrooms, private bathrooms for each of us. Great pool in the building and the building staff were helpful, patient and kind. 3 dollar cab ride to the Historic Centro. Owner provided us lots of good information before we arrived, and it all went smooth. Good wi-fi too.
Thank you, Steve, for allowing us to stay at your beautiful property. The information you provided us before our arrival was most helpful.
Additionally, I appreciate your willingness to accommodate my day-late arrival due to airline issues.
Your property is perfectly located: the beach, shopping, ATM’s, restaurants, etc. were all very close and convenient. The check-in process was seamless. Your new air conditioning units were extremely pleasant for me as it always takes me a couple of days to acclimate to the Caribbean climate.
My girlfriend is going to school to be a pastry chef, and so we did utilize your kitchen and it was very helpful. Plus, I was able to enjoy fresh pastries with my coffee each morning.
It was wonderful each day to be able to go out the front door and be right at the beach. The view from the balcony was beautiful, I truly enjoyed my morning coffee on your balcony and the night view of the lights.
I rarely write a review, but I wanted to make sure credit was given. You were always very helpful in responding to my emails and I appreciate it. When I return to Cartagena I would love the opportunity to stay at your property again.
Thanks again Steve!
Ocean View "Priceless"
My Family and I really loved this apartment, the view from the balcony was priceless. Apartment very clean and cozy.
Best Location Center of Bocagrande, minutes from the Old City.....great day and evening views, DIRECT oceanfront, all rooms....better than the old City for a place to stay, close to shopping, restaurants...take a tour to Rosario Islands, Baru or rent a boat and set your own schedule
