Interaction with Guests
I am available to answer any queries you may have.
Everything is within walking distance. Less than 10 minutes stroll and you’re in Parque Lleras with the highest concentration of bars, restaurants and clubs in Medellin. Close by are supermarkets, shopping malls, the Metro, gyms and the Toucan Spanish school.
There is a small Exito supermarket just 5 mins away where you can buy your essentials.
I can provide a full list of house rules by email. In summary consideration needs to be given to the neighbours by keeping noise levels to a minimum in the evenings and ensuring the building is securely locked when entering and leaving. Smoking is permitted but only on the balcony. NO SEX TOURISTS.
Rob's place is one of the most comfortable/amazing places I've had the pleasure of hanging out at. You won't be disappointed with your stay! Beds were super comfortable, the room was really beautiful, and the apartment is very nice, I felt like home with awesome housemates people! The area is perfect, very close to the heart of action, walking down next to cute shops, cafés and some of the best food restaurants of Medellín. Easy access to public transit and public parks. What a nice spot! I totally recommend staying here. :)
Rob's apartments in Medellin are fantastic!
They are clean, well maintained and wonderfully styled. Perfectly situated a short walk to some amazing restaurants and bars in a very safe area.
I have meet some wonderful Colombians and expats through living here for a couple of months. Originally I booked one month, but ended up staying longer.
Rob is a fantastic host. Before I arrived he helped be locate yoga studios and spanish teachers. On my first day he showed me around the area and joined me for a drink and dinner. He is very helpful and will sort out any questions you have.
I highly recommend staying in his apartments if you are interested in living in and checking out Medellin as more than just a tourist passing by.
I was very lucky finding this apartment on airbnb, my experience has been great. I can't recommend Rob and the apartment more, in fact I've enjoyed it so much I have booked for 2 more months. The apartment is beautiful, with great shared spaces, full of light, all the conveniences of home. The bedrooms are large with comfortable beds, desk and chair in each room and large closet space. The area is full of great restaurants and cafes. Rob was a great host, very helpful with recommendations, sharing info about his city etc. I Definitely recommend staying here!
Man, Rob's place is as good as everyone makes it out to be. It's large, filled with light, spacious, airy and has every modern convenience. I slept like a baby every single night I was there except 1, and that's when I had too much to drink.
Rob's place also attracts a lot of interesting, like-minded folks and we all frequently went out for dinner together. Rob really takes care of his place and really cares about the comfort of his guests. He designed the furniture himself and it looks freaking beautiful.
This is a place you bring people to and they say 'wow...' If it sounds expensive, it isn't. You'll pay equal to or more than this in a sketchier neighborhood (Poblado is the safest barrio in Medellín) and you won't get half the value.
Business called me back to the States but I would've stayed here till my visa ran out. If you're on the fence about Rob's place, get the hell off it and book now, it'll be the time of your life!
The best month of my life!! So glad to of met and stayed in your apartment! It was the icing on the cake! Just like the photo's - Gorgeous! Didn't want to leave :( Absolutely with out a doubt will not find better accommodation at a cheaper price!
Such a nice area and so close to the local night life!! THE comfiest bed I have ever slept in, really miss this place it was such a well looked after and warm home.
If anyone is looking for accommodation close to Lleras, with a pricetag like this you'll not only be lucky to get booked - but stupid to miss out!
Thank you for everything Rob, I hope Gin is well. I had the best experience and I miss you guys!!
I'll be back!!! :D
Rob's place couldn't be any closer to perfect Medellin living! His place is modern, clean, all the amenities you could possibly want. Everything is as is in the description plus so much more. Rob is an absolute wealth of knowledge on Medellin and Colombian lifestyle, and can help you out with anything you need.
The area is very safe and comfortable. Not too far from anywhere and everything. The house attracts a variety of guests, but all highly respectful and wonderful people who are a pleasure to live with. It's definitely more than just a place to stay, its a home and an experience!
Couldn't recommend it more highly!
I had a really good time in this flat. Nice people, everything perfectly organized and the best area of Medellin: You can walk around in the night without any problems and the streets look like in a botanic garden. Amazing! Thank you Rob, for always lending a hand when there was need.

About the Host, Rob
Hi I'm Rob a British/Australian guy. I moved to Medellin 4 years ago and have been renting high quality rooms in the very best neighborhood of Medellin for over three years now. I do not live in the apartments but I ensure everything runs smoothly.
My tenants are all professionals from all over the world. They are either working, studying Spanish, doing internships or volunteering in Medellin. My apartments are your friendly home from home, places to work quietly, study and chill out. My rooms are female and gay friendly. NO SEX TOURISTS.
Warning: Watch out for the Medellin bug - it a dangerous phenomenon that results in people extending their stay in Medellin much longer than expected or results in them quickly making plans to return. You too might even catch it if you're not careful!
