Scrubbed walls, tasteful period furnishing and a majestic dining room attached to the poolside patio that just screams out FEAST. Trust us, this is the social space you've been dreaming about whilst being cramped up in your city apartment back at home.
As you might expect, the swimming pool is the climax of any Caribbean villa, and Casa Colonial's offering most certainly doesn't disappoint.
The house uses the crumbling outside walls to great effect. As opposed to knocking them down, the designers built the pool around the ruins, creating a wonderfully surreal and layered space that redefines the 2D dimensional aspect of sunbathing in a vacuous space.
The bedrooms are equally as awe-inspiring. Up to 10 people can conk out in one of 5 uniquely decorated rooms equipped with soft beds, crisp sheets and distressed furnishings that are on the right side of the 'charming antique category.'
With 3 floors, 3 balconies and more window shutters than a French chateau you can get access-all-areas Caribbean sun and picture perfect vistas from pretty much anywhere in the house.
It's bold without being boastful, subtle without being boring (the handmade hammock and shots of blue details see to that) and posh without being stuck up.
Casa Colonial's soft extravagance never feels garish or tasteless, rather like that Hamptons house you wish you could 'summer' in. Only it's the Caribbean so its way better!
Cartagena's nerve centre serves up breathtaking colonial architecture, the city's top attractions, finest hotels, eateries and drinking dens as well as being the administrative and cultural heart of the city.
Centro has lost none of its importance thanks to the universal lure of its colonial pomp and the concentration of government buildings, hotels, tourist attractions, bars and restaurants in the area.
Cartagena's finest hotels and restaurants have taken over the uber-casas built by slave traders and Spanish plunderers in the 17th century.
The richest residents knocked up stunning two and three-storey mansions by the westernmost tip of the walled city, where they bagged the sea breeze and first whiff of pirates. Today only those at the very top of Colombia's rich list can afford to maintain these opulent houses in their original residential state.
