  • I guess after renting so many different apartments both on Airbnb and (website hidden), one has to stand out as your worst experience. This is it for me. I would really love to give glowing reviews, but I cannot.

    Let me start out with the positives.
    The apartment is big and nice. It is in an amazing location with a quaint creek running behind it. It has the most amazing patio with a beautiful view and lots of room to have friends over for a drink or to just relax.

    Simon and Carolina are about as nice of people as you will ever meet. They were willing to try and fix any issue that arose. I really liked working with them.

    The kitchen and two bathrooms have been remodeled and look amazing!

    However......

    I was really disappointed with the apartment overall. It is advertised as a "luxury apartment" and it truly falls short of being luxury.

    The night I arrived to the apartment I found it to be very dirty and I found that most of the light bulbs in the apartment to be burned out. I do not feel that I should have to buy light bulbs when I am renting a place. The sheets on the beds are both ill fitting and full of holes and there were no spare sheets to be found. The towels were old and worn and most had bleach stains. The air-condition was broken and needed to be repaired as was the stove top.

    Other than the kitchen and two bathrooms that have been redone the rest of the apartment is in very poor repair and dated. It does not seem that it has been changed since it was built in the 1980's. The cement walls are crumbling and falling apart all over the apartment, many of the light fixtures are broken and the apartment is very sparsely furnished.

    I would have liked to have screens on the windows and sliders to keep the mosquitoes out. The lovely creek behind the apartment makes for many bugs. There is an air-condition in the master bedroom, but who want to run the air all the time. I would have preferred to have windows open.

    The apartment is advertised to have a hot tub, but there was none to be found. When I asked Simon where it was he directed me to a small bathtub in the bathroom.

    What I do need to add here is that Simon and Carolina were willing to fix most of what was broken. If they would spend just a little more money to really fix this place up nice, it would be a truly luxurious apartment. As it is its a decent apartment in a very nice location.

    So when you are comparing prices, make sure you know that this is not luxury. I feel like I overpaid for this particular place.

    Response from Carolina:

    Erik has been a great guest and the first thing he said that he never complain but after hosting him we have to revise this, he feels like a complainer for sure.
    For fact everything was working when he started to rent and the minute he told us about things we went right ahead and fixed it, without any suspicion at all that Erik could be the one who brooke all the things and then acted like it was broken from the beginning.
    Eric also mentioned the importance of hot tub but he didn´t asked anything about this and for me as not native american speaking person hot tub and bath tub is the same.
    The sheets was perfectly fine at the start of the period. The airconditioning wasn´t broken at all it was just in need of a maintenance which we did the first day.
    During Erik´s stay we have repaired the oven, micro, curtains and some other minor items.
    Finally regarding the fact we call the apartment luxury. In the apartment there is totally furnitures for more than 70 million pesos and the age of the furnitures are less than 1,5 year. We have done several improvements all over the apartment and during my 5 years as a real estate broker in Medellin i haven´t seen many nicer apartments than this one.
    We are open to answer any question you might have regarding this and any other of our apartments.
    All the best from
    Simon and Carolina
