This one room is bigger than most one bedroom apartments! Lined with two walls of storage/closet space this room is long enough to sport a brand new queen size , two night stands,and a desk.If your looking to book as a group , a couple or on your own the room will be made to fit your requirements.I have a pull out double bed so the room will sleep 4 people. The room also boasts its own huge private bathroom but besides its size and amenities this bedroom stands out because it is at the back of the house.Many people who come to the city complain about thin walls and city noises but this particular room is nestled in the back of the house on the bottom floor making sure that you are insulated from ALL noises in this bustling city.Its very cool as its away from the direct sunlight which is a bonus when its really hot, however its darker than the other rooms. You will be close enough to the massive kitchen for late night snacks but all the rest of the houses hang outs are upstairs so this room is PERFECT for someone who enjoys lots of quiet private space for work or relaxing while in Medellin.
If you are looking to stay in the middle of the city, be surrounded by everything you need (shopping, bars, The BEST salsa clubs, restaurants, Olympic Stadium, the famous Metro at your doorstep) and have a ton of space in an incredibly quiet neighborhood then look no further. If you are here to get things done and enjoy Medellin while still having great space with peace and quiet there is no better spot. The house has 5 sprawling bedrooms all with their own private bathrooms boasting huge tiled shower areas with bathtubs (almost impossible to find in Medellin). The kitchen has enough space to accommodate a small army of chefs with storage everywhere and a brand new refrigerator. MULTIPLE common areas in the house including a T.V. room with Big Screen and new wrap around couch, HUGE open room upstairs perfect for lounging or yoga and salsa classes, and an outdoor open air patio on the top floor give you so much space to work with you might never go outside. Whether you need space to take in house dance lessons, roll out a yoga mat, have work out space inside or in the sun, or just a quiet place to read, study spanish, or get things done online this house has extra rooms for all your needs. Space coupled with super fast wireless internet throughout the house gives you the perfect environment to get anything you need done while feeling like you could be the only person in the whole house. After a long day you can step out your back door onto your PRIVATE open air top floor patio and Barbecue outside or take the whole day and lay down to soak in the sun and read a book never having to leave your city apartment. The house also has a two person small steam sauna perfect for a good sweat and giving you a relaxing break from everything you have going on. The Metro station is less than 5 minutes away and can take you all over this innovative city. Next to the Metro is the new Olympic Stadium which allows you to take advantage of outdoor gyms, olympic swimming pools, or take in a futbol match or concert at the huge outdoor stadium. You are also located 10 minutes away from U.P.B making this a young college area with tons of cool bars and nightlife to keep you entertained. This area of Medellin is for people who want to taste the real Colombia not the touristy shopping rich areas outside of town but the quaint, authentic, not over priced but real parts of this amazing city!! Organic food markets and restaurants just minutes away. This house is the best deal you are gonna find. Come and see for yourself.
I have more connections in this country than anyone you are going to meet and can take care of all your questions and needs. Staying for just a few days or planning to relocate to this amazing city I can point you in the direction you need to accomplish anything!! Come stay in Medellin and see what everyone is talking about.
Please keep all common areas clean. If you use the kitchen, as a courtesy to your fellow roommates wash all dishes and pots you use.
Be kind and respectful to everyone , this is your house for as long as your here.
Strictly no smoking ,drugs , or hookers the building.
As usual my third visit was made easy by Milena and Doc. They allowed me to leave luggage prior to my arrival, whilst I was away for the weekend, and arrival arrangements were smooth and friendly. The place is run in a very friendly relaxed manner whilst maintaining standards such as cleanliness, thanks to Olga. The atmosphere with the other guests was positive, and there is always an interesting range of people. I am sure I will be back!
Overall, I had a good experience in this house. It is just round the corner from the metro station and one famous nightlife area, the setenta. You are right near the stadium, where you can do all kinds of sports. It is in Laureles, a safe middle class neighbourhood and the best place to stay in Medellin. The house itself is large and spacious with chill out areas and a patio for bbqs. There is a good atmosphere in the house with a good mix of travellers and long term residents. It is a very quiet place, not a party house. There are 7 rooms in total, 4 on the ground floor and 3 on the top floor. I had this room initially on the ground floor, then moved to one of the rooms upstairs. All rooms are fitted with a decent bed and pillows. Each room has certain advantages and disadvantages (balcony, private bathroom, etc) and is priced accordingly. This room is large with plenty of storage space, so suitable for a couple. I personally found it a bit dark (not at all the like the light in the pictures) and depressing. Internet and hot water were patchy in this room, but fine in other parts of the house. The room upstairs was much better however, with light and view of the street.
Regarding Milena, she is one of the nicest and sweetest hosts you will find on Airbnb. She is so helpful. For example, one day she spent the whole morning taking a sick couple to the hospital. She also offers excellent Spanish lessons at ridiculously low prices. To be honest, I felt the house was slightly overpriced for what it is. It was perhaps once a magnificent house, but is probably due for some renovations in the near future. However, with the combined package of cheap lessons, it definitely made the overall experience worthwhile.
This was my 2nd stay with Miena and Doc and there will be more.
Great location, quiet area one block from the main street where cafes, shops and the rail that runs thru Medellin.
A great find.
Milena and Paul are both very friendly and always to give tips or help out. They make you feel welcome in the house, that has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and good facilities for a very reasonable price.
Very good location in a nice and quiet neighbourhood, though not far from bars and restaurants. Also good connection with Metro.
Being an airbnb virgin this is my first review. I have traveled all over the world and stayed in more places than I can remember. My stay with Doc and Milena had to be one of the most welcoming, comfortable and seemeless experiences to date. I recently took an apartment because my room was rented by someone else after the dates I had booked. I plan to return to Perfect House as soon as it is free again. I could continue to write wonderful things here but you get the idea. If you want to stay in an authentic part of Medellin outside El Poblado this treasure in the Estadio/Laurales area is the place to land.
Everything is accurate; location, accommodations, cleanliness, etc. Milena is a jewel!!! Could not be more pleased.
Milena's place is very nice and we had a wonderful stay. Because you share with others it's important that things are well organized but she has everything under control with dedicated space for you in the kitchen etc. the place is clean and the bed was comfortable. The house is walking distance to the Metro and entertainment, supermarket etc. highly recommended!

Hi my name is Milena and I live in this beautiful house.I am a Spanish teacher and I currently teach spanish here in Medellin. I speak very good english and I speak a little German.I can offer spanish lessons at a discount to anyone who stays with me or I can put you in touch with numerous spanish schools or universities in Medellin.I offer a collection service from the airport ,that will bring you direct to my house for 80,000 pesos. I am always honest with the descriptions of the house and the rooms.I ask that you please read the descriptions and look at the price of the rooms.There is a reason some rooms are more expensive than others, this doesn't mean the cheapest room is bad , it just won't have a balcony or big window or private bathroom. My house is big and beautiful, so when you pay for the room you are not just paying for the room.You are paying for the large terrace, the chill out room , the tv room , the dining room and the ambience of a friendly chilled out house.Also you have the chance to experience a beautiful part of Medellin that is very very safe but a taste of the real Medellin, not just big buildings in Poblado. I want that your stay in Medellin is enjoyable and you will want to return.This is not a hotel ,so if you want a perfect experience then you book a hotel. This is my house , its not perfect but its fun and relaxed.Airbnb don't allow you to exchange emails and phone numbers until after you have booked.Please bear this in mind. Thanks and I look forward to hosting you in my house.
