Roelo is a fantastic host. He was very kind and the place was outstanding. When arriving we were given the keys and were provided with a print out of recommendations of what to do around Medellin. The location was great, great view, pizza restaurant was also good and you have a couple of good bars around the neighborhood as well where you can grab a drink and have a good time. He was always available to answer any of our questions via whatsapp. 10 out 10 overall!!
I had lived in Medellin, near Parque Lleras in 2013, but Roelo's apartment is in a different part of town, so it was like being in a different city. I adore the neighborhood. It is 100% Paisa, with no tourists.
For my lifestyle, the jacuzzi was a dream. I'm a dancer and athlete, and I was in that tub at least twice a day. The smart TV was a bonus, and he has three of them! The light is great, with a territorial view, and a bird's nest view of the street and the park.
Roelo is a great host, and responded promptly to questions I had in the first few days. Later on, when I had some travel complications with my departure, he was proactive and incredibly kind in helping me with a stressful situation.
I hope to stay again, and I would recommend it to people who prefer to live like a local. Having said that, it's also a 10-15 minute taxi to Parque Lleras for the Zona Rosa action.
Con mucho gusto. I am so glad you experienced living among the locals rather than among other foreigners. It really makes a complete difference to have a true Colombian experience. Thanks for your kindness and taking care of our home like it was your own. Welcome back any time. hasta pronto!
Roelo was a great host, very helpful and easy to contact.
I loved the place, very clean, good location.
Will come back.
We enjoyed our stay in the Penthouse. Loved the location, really felt like we were in the center of the city. I booked with very short notice, but had no issues. Place was very well equipped, very comfortable. If coming back to Medellin, I would not hesitate to stay here again.
About the Host, Roelo
I am a South African and lived in Australia for 13 years but now I am in Colombia. I travel the world a lot. I have decided to list my place in Medellin on airbnb when I return to Australia. I am nice guy all round and like to meet new people and connect with new cultures. I prefer to use airbnb myself rather than hotels because hosts are more flexible with my times I can come and go, and I like to have a bit more space than a room. I am neat and tidy and mostly out all day exploring touristic attractions. Please feel free to read my reviews and I hope I can play host to you in my beautiful place soon too.
