This adorable apt. is located in the heart of the city center. Amazing views from your private rooftop/terrace with jacuzzi. Next to the best sights of the city center; restaurants, bars, squares.. Mi alojamiento es bueno para parejas, aventureros, viajeros de negocios y familias (con hijos).

The space

This 3 story apt. offers a unique view and very centered location inside the old city. In the first level you have the kitchen and living room area, it has high ceilings and it's very bright. All of the apt is full of windows which makes it very luminous and fresh if you want to open them wanting to merge into the caribbean atmosphere. It has three air conditioners, one in each bedroom and one in the living room kitchen area. In the second level you have the two rooms, each one with its own bathroom. The main room has a queen size bed and a balcony. From the main room you have a view to the San Agustin tower. The second room has three bunk beds. In the third level you will find the small pool, perfect to freshen up and an area where you can sit down and relax under the shade of a pergola. The rooftop is also full of plants and flowers.

Guest access

The guests will have access to all the property.

Interaction with guests

I will be always available through the airbnb message portal.

Other things to note

I have a small restaurant that's located very close to the apt. (5 minute walk), La Sandwichería, so if you decide to have dinner there let me know because we'll give you a special treat.

The apt. is located on a third floor and there is no elevator. It's really not a problem, my parents and grandparent's go up all the time. But if you have a heart condition its something to have in mind.


Walk around the old town, visit churches, museums, interact with locals.

Rent a bike and ride around the historic center, or go along the sea side and check out more modern neighborhoods like Boca Grande. There are plenty of bike rentals around the apt.

Watch the sunset, in the beach, on top of the walled city, in the apt. terrace.

Go during the day or stay a couple of nights in the Islas del Rosario or Barú.

A wonderful stay! Host extremely prompt in response and helpful for whatever the need. Place itself was great refuge from the busy streets of town, while being perfectly located to explore the beautiful walled city. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend!

Mau's place is fantastic. Great location, amazing space and rooftop patio was wonderful to relax on. We did have a band start playing music right outside the bedroom window at midnight, but Mau took care of it for us. Lovely place overall.

An excellent place to stay in the centre of the old city. Three levels of lounge/kitchen, two bedrooms, each with toilet/shower, and rooftop balcony area with a small pool. Mau is a very good host.

Mau was a great host. Very responsive and provided me with a lot of suggestions for local restaurants and activities. The apartment is close to everything within the wall city. The rooftop pool offers great views.

Everything about this apartment was perfect. The location, the view from the rooftop, Mau himself. My only regret is that I didn't discover Epoca coffee shop on our first day. Don't make my mistake.

Perfectly located in the heart of Cartagena this apartment is the ideal starting point to get lost in the scenic streets of the historic center. The roof top with the small pool offers a great opportunity to recover from the day and to prepare for the great evening and night life. Great host, great spot. Highly recommended.

I studied philosophy as my pregraduate. I've been living in Cartagena for the last seven years. I opened a small restaurant really close to the apartment.
What I like the most is going to the beach, cycling, sailing and reading.
