Description

COL. 800,000 pesos / month/ (approx.200 Euros or USD . 1bed apt; 3 blocks from beach in downtown Santa Marta, Colombia (centre; centro; beach; playa; Bahia).
We have available a large apartment in the CENTRE of Santa Marta. 90sqm in total, but inside it is divided into 2 separate & fully independent units of about 45sqm. Each apt has its own independent bathroom & kitchen area; each has a bedroom & a living room.
Ideally we are looking for a couple of people who would each rent a unit. However, we are also willing to rent just one unit. If you are interested we can discuss the details. There is also the POSSIBILITY that YOU CAN live in one unit and SUBLET the other unit to visitors. This is definitely feasible as the location is pretty good & tourism is the main activity here.
800,000 COP per unit, monthly rent plus 50% of the bills. (We are willing to include the bills in the rental agreement, but the problem is that when it is free some people waste the utilities).
There is one front door into the 4th-floor apt. Inside this main door, there are separate entrances for each of the 2 apartments. This creates two separate & independent living spaces.
Views onto the street. You can see the mountains from here, but there is no sea view. (Sorry, but there are a few other buildings in the way blocking the sea view !!).

This SIMPLE but perfectly liveable & functional apartment is on the FOURTH (TOP) FLOOR. It is not directly on the main road, so the other apartments absorb the noise from the traffic. The location is between the BEACH & the main Carrera.5.

Location is ideal for down-to-earth people looking for basic/budget accommodation in the heart of a real & unpretentious Caribbean city with a very laid back & chilled atmosphere! It is very SAFE in this area. You can easily walk to the bars/restaurants a few blocks away. Plenty of escapism to distract yourself without needing to take a taxi ! You can also safely walk back to the apartment late at night without any problem as the businesses in this area are carefully monitored by private security patrols & police & the streets here are properly illuminated at night. (This is a significant advantage that should not be overlooked). Located just meters from the most well-known boutique hostels in downtown Santa Marta. Supermarkets & all services in the immediate vicinity.
NOTE: The bills are cheap. NO AIR-CON. We have fans. There are LARGE WINDOWS and there is usually plenty of natural breeze !!! GOOD NATURAL LIGHT.
Currently unfurnished, but willing to provide basic furnishings depending on the case. (EG, we could buy a refrigerator; beds & table/chairs).

This property is ideal for pensioners on a budget, or snowbirds looking to escape the cold northern winter. Would also suit digital nomads or any other people looking for budget accommodation in a SAFE & convenient Caribbean location.

CENTRAL LOCATION - ideal to pass time in the coffee shops nearby during the day, or to lazily have a cold beer on the beachfront. If you like to wake up early you can easily take a walk on the beach or do exercise. This is NOT a Luxury apartment. Located in a nondescript, but very sturdy, 1970s building typical of any downtown urban area. However, it is in a GOOD & SAFE LOCATION & offers convenience & GREAT VALUE. If you prefer appearances & faux-elegance over practicality & location then this apartment is not for you. This property is suitable for people who are NOT IMPRESSED by luxury condos with a fancy facade, shiny floor tiles, new paint and flat screen TVs on the flimsy plasterboard walls, etc. Moreover, Santa Marta is a small city and being near the beach is the reason that most people come here! This apartment, although not front-line, is just a very short walk from the sea and is available at an unbeatable price! (We can keep the rental low as we are not burdened by the extortionate admin fees typically charged in the flashy luxury high-rise buildings !!)
