Old City 3BR: balcony, great wifi, hot water, AC!
This listing describes the Moneda Apartments, where you can rent a two bedroom unit & studio down the hall which together accommodate up to 8 people.

This option is great for a group/family to be together yet still allow some "within group" privacy!

Look through the photos & read the info below to get to know where you could be staying on your Colombian vacation! Please check out my other Cartagena options also at my profile or here: www.airbnb.com/users/1120393/listings

The magic of Cartagena is in wandering the streets of the beautiful colonial walled city. Choose the Moneda Apartments and you are right in the heart of that magic each day of your stay!

We have three renovated apartments -- studio, one, and two bedroom -- which are on the second floor (walk up) of a two-story building in Cartagena's Walled City and are the only apartments in the building.

By renting the studio (sleeps 1-2) and the two bedroom (sleeps up to 6) apartments together, you have three bedrooms and three full baths; one of the bedrooms is just down the hall from the main apartment.

Two of the bedrooms have double beds and one has twins which can be made into a king. Two of the bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and one of these also has a balcony overlooking Calle de la Moneda – great for people watching while enjoying a cup of Colombian coffee or Club Colombia beer!

There is a door from the street with stairs to the second floor (there is a clothing store on the ground floor). You would share this door with the guests in the one bedroom apartment also. Guests will have the key to this main door as well as to their own individual apartment doors.

Once booked, guests receive a multi-page document (in English) 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, a cook or cooking class while there, feel free to ask him!

These apartments are located in the San Diego section of the magical Old City of Cartagena, within the 500 year old Spanish colonial walls. Colonial architecture abounds!

The building is on Calle de la Moneda, which is a busy and lively street during the day but quiet at night. The street is lined with shops and a couple of small, inexpensive restaurants. Just about everything is closed by 8 pm, however, so you’re not disturbed by noise during the night.

At the far end of the block is the Exito department store which sells everything from groceries to electronics plus has an ATM. One street away in the other direction you'll find the popular Juan Valdez coffee shop and the main University of Cartagena building. And a block around the corner is the beautiful Parque Fernández de Madrid surrounded by plenty of nice restaurants and cafes.

Calle de la Moneda is widely used by Cartageneros as they walk to and from work, school, transportation, etc. (and to shop!). You are in the heart of “real” Cartagena on Calle de la Moneda!

Churches, museums, other shops, bars, the old city wall, and the Caribbean Sea are only a few blocks away. You are within close proximity to everything here!

Walking is the best way to get around the Walled City – it’s great wandering the maze of quaint streets. But you are never far from the surrounding walls so you don’t have to worry about accidentally straying too far!

If you are in a hurry or want to venture outside the walls, taxis are inexpensive and easily flagged on the street. We are a 5-10 minute/US$4 taxi ride from the airport, and a 5-10 minute/US$2-3 taxi ride away from other sites/areas, such as San Felipe Castle (the huge old Spanish fort) or the tourist dock (for the boats to the Rosario Islands, where many prefer to go for the beach), or the beaches of Bocagrande, Laguito and Castillogrande.

We look forward to having you!

We 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 partner with community organizations and an organization helping street animals, and would love to have your help!

If you’d like something bigger or smaller, or if you’d like to book multiple apartments, please contact me for more information (or visit my other Cartagena listings via my profile, link here: www.airbnb.com/users/1120393/listings ). I work with a total of 14 apartments in the Old City, 3 Moneda Apartments and 11 nearly across the street in Balcones.

I've lived most of my life in the U.S. (where I am from) 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 schools, community organizations & animal rescue groups in both Colombia & Belize. We'd love to have your help!
