Gods were definitely on the architects' side when they designed Casa Zapote, this fittingly titled slice of heaven tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Cartagena's old streets.
Green fingered tourists will delight at the villa's large garden centrepiece, which gives a much needed foliage boost to the beach, sea and city makeup of Cartagena, and makes for a perfect view for those lazy pool days, of which there are many to be had at this sun-worshipper palace.
Guests can spread themselves amongst the five rustic double rooms scattered across two floors.
Those willing to sacrifice space for extra natural light should take dibs on the upper floor deluxe suites, while the downstairs options are best for pool darlings that want to wake up to the sight of glistening water.
Food always tastes better when it's lovingly made by someone else, so make sure you get loaded up on the excellent American-Colombian breakfasts that will set you up nicely for a day soaking up the local sights - all of which are within walking distance from the villa's prime location.
THIS IS WHAT WE LOVE
* The balmy, holiday scent that fills every room and makes you dream.
* Gazing at the lush mini garden while enjoying anaperitivo in the shade.
* Being a stone throw away from the local buzz of San Diego square.
* Waking up to a breakfast fit for champions before setting off sightseeing.
* Staring through the grates of the preserved water wells on the patio.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
* Breakfast is included in the price of the rental.
* An in-house chef provides lunch and dinner during mid-season only, so you will have to pay for a chef during high-season.
* Extra single beds can be provided on request.
* Cooking classes, yacht hire and massages are not included in the price of the house rental.
* The house rents out rooms individually as well, so book early if you want the whole place to yourselves.
