Great place for group visit

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed staying at this location. We had a group of 6 and we each had our own bedroom. There was plenty of lounging space and we were able to cook breakfast and an evening meal at the house-- eating out only for the noon meal. We enjoyed the working class neighborhood although I was glad to later see the more affluent neighborhood where most tourist go.

We walked to the Botanical gardens and the metro. Shopping for food in nearby stores was easy and fun.

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a week in Medellin with 5 other ladies. This house was perfect!! It was exactly as seen in photos, but with more.The kitchen is well stocked with cooking aids and utensils, making it easy for us to cook in.The hot water is strong and the linens many! Comfortable beds. Alex the manager was there in the open door when we arrived late one evening. We thoroughly enjoyed walking to the Metro and the Botanical Garden (Fabulous Restaurant) Neither was a far distance. We loved walking through the realistic true life of the average Colombian. The small barrio was full of sights and sounds of the inner city..but everyone was very friendly and helpful. We are very glad we stayed here and would definitely return.

Amazing house with everything you could want

  • 5 of 5

I travel to MEDELLIN often on business and usually usually stay in apartments in Poblado. I needed a bigger space this time as my family accompanied me . We couldn't have been more happy in our choice of this home. Alex was a perfect host and very helpful there was a lot of space for the kids and It has an inner courtyard and the beautiful garden outside.

The part-time Housekeeper Rosalba keeps the house immaculate and was very kind and helpful.

We loved the local suburb, close to the metro and parks and there are shops and supermakets within 5 min walk. I highly recommend this property and we will be back.

La casa es muy cómoda, amplia, tiene todo lo que se pueda necesitar al estar allá. Tiene cerca una estación de transporte público, el parqueadero es cerca. Y lo mejor, la atención es increíble. Muy recomendada.

Medellin is certainly one of the most beautiful cities in South America (often called “city of the eternal spring”) with plenty to see and do; a superb mixture of modern, bustling city, whilst retaining its unique heritage and beauty.

Due to it being around 5,000 ft above sea level and near to the Equator, it benefits from a subtropical climate and year round warm temperatures (the lowest around 15°C).

The city rose to prominence in the 1980’s due to the exploits of drug baron Pablo Escobar, but this has long since been forgotten and the welcoming and friendly locals mean it’s a much safer destination.
