Few Cartagena vacation rentals boast a better location, in the heart of the action sandwiched between, the second homes of Colombia's richest families.
The suites are more than eloquent, with an almost boudoir feel buttressed by four poster beds and wonderfully tiled suite bathrooms that finish off the stately home look Casa Estrella pulls off flawlessly.
“The bigger the room, the better the view” seems to be the rule of thumb here. With the top floor family room packing the biggest punch, with stunning views and a small seating area to kick back after a hard day taking in Cartagena's colonial charms.
Bag one of the upper floor rooms and you'll also be closer to the pool, a majestic little rooftop number that overlooks Cartagena's ever-so-pretty, colourful church peaks.
If you've already filled your boots at the nearby culinary hotspots and want to make the most of your mansion, we'll help you cook up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen and dine in style in the grand dining room at ground level.
Complete with a gigantic dinner table, and inky black throne-like chairs that look as though they've been carved out of charcoal, this is a room that just screams banquet.
Just when you think of this historic villa as your stunning aristocratic stately home–there's even a smoking room with its own bar to take an aperitif–you bump headfirst into a tropical Caribbean slant such as a woven wall hanging or a skyscraper of a palm tree, that act as a wonderful Caribbean softener to Casa Estrella's dark and mysterious exterior.
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.
