About John-Paul

I am a multi-lingual world traveler and I decided to make Medellín my home because it is one of the friendliest, comfortable and overall highest quality cities I've ever experienced. Some of my passions include foreign languages, health and fitness, architecture and design, cooking, wine and international travel. I almost always choose travel destinations where the primary language is NOT English. I am fluent in Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian and English. I love meeting interesting people from other countries and look forward to sharing my beautiful one-of-a-kind Casa del Reloj with respectful, high-quality guests of all nationalities. When traveling, I want to be comfortable and want things to work. I've taken painstaking efforts to provide such a destination. My motto in life is simple: "Life is short and everything comes down to family, friends and memories. So enjoy it RESPECTFULLY and try to have as few regrets as possible when it's all said and done."

John-Paul purchased this apartment in 2014

The most visually striking, comfortable, peaceful short-term rental destination in the absolute best location in El Poblado, Medellin.

Todo fue perfecto

  • 5 of 5

Me hospede en casa de reloj en el apartamento jardín en compañía de mi esposo, mi mejor amiga y su esposo, la experiencia fue única, dentro del lugar nos sentíamos como fuera de la ciudad, la decoración y lo tranquilo lo del lugar nos daba la sensación de estar en una casa de campo, pero en un momento salíamos y estábamos en una zona llena de ofertas gastronómicas deliciosas, lugares para pasar rico, escuchar buena música y tomar buenos tragos.

La casa es linda, muy bien dotada, no nos hizo falta nada, todo es muy cómodo, el internet en el lugar siempre funciono bien, la verdad este lugar tiene magia.

Nice looking apartment

  • 3 of 5

I liked the design of the apartment

Good location.

The problem was it was very noisy and the garden area in the middle of the apartment was open the the outside.

Suggestion to have a better walking surface across the gravel to the bedrooms.

A Medellin must!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Reloj is a little slice of paradise I plan on returning to on any trip to Medellin. There are many reasons I was left feeling so awesome after staying here, but I will summarize, as I’m sure you have other things you want to do!

First, and most important, the people behind the property are amazing! As with literally everyone I met in Colombia, they are exceptionally friendly and helpful. Johanna communicated with me for months about the property. She was always prompt with replies, thorough in her information, and thoughtful in not just answering any question I had. I ran into a problem with my airline the night before check out, and Ivan? sat with me as I spoke with the airline, offering advice or translation when needed.

Beyond the people, the location of the property is more than you could possibly hope for. I was told by a few locals that Calle 35 is the best street in Medellin. You are literally surrounded by jungle, with a creak just down the street. Restaurants are everywhere, and almost all of them are high quality. Park Lleras is a few streets away, and offers a bit of centralized activity.

The house itself is well thought out. Each room is clean, modern, very well built and very functional. The bathrooms have a unique design, and the living room has large windows that fully open so you can listen to the frequent rain. The appliances are nice, work well, and easy to use. I stayed in the Jardin apartment, which has a garden in the center of the apartment. This is as beautiful as it sounds, and not only is it nice to look at, it’s quite zen, as well. It frames your view from one of the bedrooms, and you have to walk through it to get to the other one. It is like a living, functioning piece of art that the entire apartment is built around.

Lastly, let’s talk about money. Yes, the nightly rate is on the higher side for Medellin…. but…. that cost is not high relative to other modern, bustling cities. At roughly the same price you’d pay for a lower to mid range hotel in Los Angeles, New York or Amsterdam, you get a very large and luxurious space. I stayed in several other locations in Colombia, and saw a few spaces in Medellin. You get what you pay for. If you want a box to come home to sleep in, you may want to save your money. If you want a nice home base in one of the nicest neighborhoods in Medellin, this is the place you are looking for… without a doubt.

Beautiful building with a great location

  • 5 of 5

Pablo and I stayed at Casa del Reloj from September 21-26. The booking process was very easy and the communication before and during the visit was always prompt and courteous. The check-in process was fast and we found the Eden to be a perfect choice. It was quiet and we enjoyed the fully stocked kitchen as we had planned to cook many of our meals in the apartment.

The apartment itself was very private, beautiful, clean and comfortable. We appreciated the daily housekeeping. We had a problem with the WiFi the first day but the staff were very attentive and worked hard to get it resolved.

We really enjoyed the beautiful location and the easy access to parks and the main areas of Poblado. We always felt safe in the area, even at night.

We were originally scheduled to leave on the 25th but due to the Avianca pilot protests, a flight was cancelled and we needed to stay an extra day. Even though our place was booked that night, the staff worked with us and put us into a larger apartment at the same price for the night.

They also assisted us with transportation back to the airport.

Overall it was a great experience for us in Medellin and we would highly recommend staying at Casa del Reloj.

Fantastic experience!

  • 5 of 5

This property was lovely. The two bedroom was very spacious and the interior garden provided a serene backdrop to the accommodation. The staff was VERY helpful and arranged tours, massages, and even food delivery! The modern combination locks on the doors were very easy to use and eliminated the need to worry about keys. The staff was also available to clean or provide linens when needed. The location was in the best area and it was convenient to walk to restaurants and shops. It was a very safe and green area. I'd definitely stay at Casa Del Reloj again. : )
