Casa Baloco


    The details

    Found in one of the most prestigious streets in Cartagena's picturesque old town, this seven-bed colonial villa ticks all the boxes for anyone looking for a standout, luxury vacation rental in Cartagena.

    Built with upscale holiday home specs in mind for a wealthy Colombian family, the five-storey mansion boasts a Jacuzzi, stunning swimming pool at ground level and a brilliant sea view up top.

    The owners are understandably proud of their colonial Caribbean retreat and aren't keen on renting to groups looking to get too wild. Parties in the house are frowned upon and boys only groups are strictly forbidden.

    Families and friends on the other hand will get shown the red carpet treatment from the moment they arrive and jump into the emerald green swimming pool that greets you on entry.

    A traditional lime scale motif prevails throughout with modern touches where it matters, mostly in the kitchen, bathrooms and bedrooms.

    Upstairs, a grand piano in the majestic salon is perfect for impressing your travel buddies with your hidden talents.

    Make sure one of your group is on popcorn duty to make the most of the projector in spectacular living room, for some home cinema action after one to many nights on the town.

    A well-curated modern art collection and bespoke contemporary furniture, brings the 17th century mansion bang up-to-date.

    Beyond the stunning shared spaces, it's the uber-comfy sleeping quarters that really propel this palace to the very pinnacle of Cartagena's luxury vacation rental offering.

    The seven stylish bedrooms sleep 12 people comfortably with rooms set apart but inter-connected by two balconies that each look down onto the pool.

    Each of the understated bedrooms comes with its ownen suitebathroom and most of the rooms come equipped with king-sized beds built for extreme comfort.

    An atrium formed by the two wings allows plenty of natural light to reach the bedrooms on the second floor and ensures that sun lovers can make the most of the luscious deck area by the pool - when liquid refreshment is just the ticket after a sticky day walking around the streets.

    A vertical garden runs up through the house to the upper levels where a fourth-floor duplex with its own terrace and living room is always fiercely fought over.

    Avoid the holiday squabbles over rooms - whoever pays gets first dibs!
