About this listing

The space

Welcome to Casa Romi. We are excited to share our home with you. Cartagena is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and we hope your stay in our home will be wonderful.

This is a newly-renovated colonial home, IPCC-certified that the renovation maintained the integrity of the era. Imagine being transported back to the 16th century while still enjoying the comforts of today.

Casa Romi is decorated with oil paintings of our famed Fernando Botero as well as other local Colombian painters.

We have three spacious rooms, including one master bedroom, equipped with air conditioning, ceiling fans and Smart LED TVs. We also have three hammocks if you would like to lounge Colombian-style.

Casa Romi also boasts a state of the art security system with cameras throughout the house, a contract with a private security company and a police station down the street to ensure your safety.

To get around you can borrow our hybrid Schwinn medium-sized bicycle. Just make sure to return it in the same condition it was given.

Access to all rooms in the house.

Our administrator will be present upon your arrival, she will give you the keys and give you an introductory tour of the house and its amenities.

Guest will share space with Homeowner. Homeowner shall exercise this right of access in a reasonable manner.

Getsemaní was featured on Forbes Magazine as the representation of the authentic Colombian experience. The Convention Center is located in Getsemaní, at less than a 5 minute walk from the house. It is one of the most important convention and congress centers in South America and has hosted some of the most important events in the world such as the G8 Summit, XVII General Assembly of the WTO in 2007 and the VI Summit of the Americas in 2012, among others.

The "Centro" or neighborhood with the city walls is right past the Convention Center and is somewhere you can easily walk to for shopping, eating out and music.

There are also plans for he establishment of the Four Seasons Hotel in Getsemaní within the next year.

A signed contract (emailed to you after booking) with copies of passports is required for all guests and must be submitted at least 3 days prior to check-in date.

This house and the service that Romina provided was absolutely phenomenal. The trip started a little shaky when the driver she arranged left the airport without picking us up due to a miscommunication, however, Romina made up for it right away by sending her property manager and having him pick us up for free. I would describe the neighborhood of Getsemani as a similar feel to the lower east side of New York. A little edgy but very cool and still safe. The house is walking distance to all of the restaurants and bars that you could ever want. Also, a police station is a few buildings down which made us feel safe but also a little uneasy at the same time. The house is beautiful and very big, however, do note that there is only 3 bedrooms so it sleeps 6 comfortably. The maid service that was offered for $20/day and it was more than we could ever ask for. She was so nice, cooked all of our breakfast and lunches and cleaned up after us (which was no easy feat). The downside of the house is that if it does rain a big portion of the house is outside. Overall, me and my 7 buddies had a phenomenal time and a better trip that we ever expected.

Romina and her family went beyond out of their way to make our stay wonderful. Words can't describe our experience from beginning to end they all went out of their way to make everything perfect. We opted for transportation and housekeeping/cooking; which was more than worth it. With a group of 7, Romina arranged a large bus (AC etc) and friendly driver to greet us. When we arrived at the home, Lorania was there to greet us. Throughout our 6 day stay Loraina and Areladis (housekeeper) helped us explore the city, with helpful insights, translations etc. Lorania helped us book special activities throughout the week (private boat, volcano spa treatments, dinners, drivers etc). The home itself, is immaculately kept and has a gorgeous charm. It is also perfectly located, easy access historical sections and local spots. We would love to go back! We appreciate all of their additional efforts to make our stay amazing. It really was an exceptional experience. THANK YOU!

A slice of the old city, in a beautifully redone house in the middle of a vibrant and fun area. Three couples loved this location, and I loved the woodwork. A safe place, just a few doors down from a police station with constant energy and (tasty) local restaurants and street food, walking distance to everything we wanted. Three independently locked rooms, each with its own full bathroom, custom cabinetry for clothing, nice mattresses, nice linens, thick towels. Security cameras at indoor/outdoor common areas as well as entrance (or possible entrances). The pool was definitely used and the upstairs breezes in the evening were quite special. Romina was available, responsive, and as helpful as any place we've ever stayed. We would love to return.

Romina and her family made the whole experience at Casa Romi unforgettable. This was our group's first time traveling to Cartagena and I can't imagine doing it another way. From the start Romina made us feel welcome and remained in constant communication. She was so open and willing to answer our questions as well as offer suggestions and recommendations. Once we arrived, her family welcomed us into the beautiful Casa Romi. The home is situated perfectly in the very fun neighborhood of Getsamani right outside (walking distance) from the Old City. The home was clean, gorgeous, inviting, and so charming. This was the best decision we made - to stay in a private home rather than a hotel. This was one of the best vacations and trips we've taken. One for the books!

I am a graduate of Johns Hopkins University currently living in Los Angeles. I work in research and am specifically interested in the relationship between autoimmune diseases and the microbiome and cancer immunology. I am Colombian and Peruvian, and frequently visit my home in Colombia with my family. Cartagena is a wonderful place to sleep, eat and have fun; and I look forward to going every year. I hope that whoever stays in my family home has a traditional and beautiful experience.
