4 Bedroom (Sleeps 8)
Once a large 17th Century Spanish Colonial mansion, Casa Schmolka has been converted into a 5,000 square foot luxury escape which blends the charm of a 250 year old home with amenities and conveniences modern travelers expect. If location is a factor in your property selection, Casa Schmolka sits on the most prestigious blocks within Cartagena’s Old City.
Fully redesigned by renowned architect Javier Acevedo, elements of light, air and water have been beautifully integrated into the home’s traditional archways, vaulted beamed ceilings, intricate staircases and cistern.
Guests are greeted at the door by the majestic entry hall and can then meander through the living spaces to the spacious dining area overlooking the open-air pool and lush hanging garden. The translucent glass bridge across the pool leads to a private indoor/outdoor living room equipped with a 50′ flat screen TV and entertainment center.
The kitchen is an ultra-modern addition with 30-bottle wine cooler which can perfectly chill some of your favorites or newly acquire local vintages.
The second level is home to the palatial master suite which features a traditional balcony overlooking the street and providing stunning views of the Cartagena Cathedral’s cupola and the brilliant blue Caribbean Sea. Two additional bedrooms are luxuriously appointed and feature private baths. One room possesses a king-size bed while the other is home to two single beds which can be slid together if necessary.
The spacious common area is also on this second level and overlooks the pool below. With generous seating, a fully-equipped entertainment center, and a bistro for afternoon refreshments or late-night snacks this area is perfect for entertaining guests any time of day or night. But if you really want to make an impression, move the guests up to the spectacular rooftop terrace. It features a Jacuzzi and barbecue with a poshly appointed seating area all with breathtaking views of the ocean and Caribbean life buzzing by in the streets below.
The property sits one half block from the beautifully restored Teatro Heredia and one block from historic Plaza Bolívar.
All bedrooms are appointed with modern air conditioning and flat-screen televisions.
