Casa Barbara is a quiet, relaxing beachfront, furnished, two bedroom/2.5 bath modern apartment with AC, hot water, wifi & balcony — perfect for two couples, a couple of friends, or a small family (sleeps up to four; no children under age 12 please)! It is my home when in Cartagena but available for longer term (one month +) visitors when I am not in town. A great place to stay if you are a digital nomad, escaping the winter, taking a Spanish course in a local school, or just want a relaxing place to stay in a beautiful place!
Located just a short walk to the Old City in the Cabrero neighborhood, the apartment is on the 15th floor with a balcony that goes the length of the apartment. You’ll love watching the sun set each evening over the Caribbean! You also have a great view north to the Marbella/Crespo area of the coast and beyond, as well as a sneak peak from the balcony at the part of the Old City wall called “La Tenaza.” There are windows in the back of the apartment that give you a view of the Popa, the highest point in Cartagena, as well as the Castillo San Felipe.
The building was built in 2010 and has 24 hour reception, two elevators, and a pool (15 meters x 4 meters), jacuzzi, sauna, & social area on the 7th floor.
Please take a virtual tour of the apartment via the slideshow and read on for more details below.
**Photos of the pool, sauna, etc. can be seen here.
Each bedroom has night tables, reading lamps, small desk with chair, full length mirror, a private full bath with walk in closet, floor to ceiling sliding glass doors which lead out to the balcony, & hammock just outside the door!
–Bedroom 1 has the option of two XL twin beds (1×2 meters/39×78 inches each) or a king bed (2×2 meters/39×78 inches).
–Bedroom 2 has a US standard queen sized bed bed (1.53×2 meters/60×78 inches).
The kitchen is well-stocked for cooking & eating and there is counter seating. The living area has comfortable seating plus opens right up to the balcony, where this is a small table and four chairs. There is a half bath off the living area.
Each room has a ceiling fan and mini split air conditioner.
In addition, there is a laundry area with washer/dryer, clothes drying racks & laundry sink.
I’m not currently in Cartagena full-time, but visit for couple of months each year and did live & work in this city for over two years, plus have traveled around Colombia quite a bit. I would be happy to help in any way I can either via email/phone prior to your arrival or during your stay. In addition, Walter & Tara, a US couple who have lived in Cartagena for 5+ years and who live a 7 minute walk from the apartment, will arrange to meet you on arrival to check you in and help as needed while you are staying at Casa Barbara.
