Located just a stone's throw from the idyllic sands of Cholón, Casa Navegante is the perfect floating bolthole for those looking for a luxury island getaway that is not of the on-land cabin variety.
This sea dream hits all right notes for the new breed of high-end, environmentally conscious jetsetters that don't do hemp clothing.
These guys score extra brownie points for delivering the eco-essentials such as a biological water system and solar panels, while still indulging our guilty pleasures for plasma screen TV's, gigantic sunbeds and a generous sized pool.
Stand-out extras such as the telescope, perfect for star-gazing, is another reason why this place sits high on the list of unique Cartagena luxury rental options.
The 2-bedroom property sleeps up to six people and is spread over two floors, so there's plenty of room for on-deck dining and chilling out by the pool with a cocktail while the BBQ cooks up the catch of the day.
Waterbound activities are plentiful too, with a tour around the island's dramatic mangroves and diving services for those that want to live out their 'lord of the sea' dreams down under.
Those looking for a unique city escape will swoon at this double decker knockout that sets the standard on how luxury and eco-tourism can come together, when you really push the boat out.
