This is a lovely apartment in a very tranquil area despite the fact it is centrally located.
Bare in mind that during high season (December -January and July-August) we have higher rates.

Do I even have to give it a star? First off, I was ignored by the host since the day before check-in when asking for more specific directions to the apartment for my taxi driver. The address/map shown on this listing is NOT accurate. We unfortunately spent almost double the fare on our taxi driving around aimlessly for almost an hour until Simon finally picked up and gave us directions. We get there and there's a bunch of dust everywhere, sticky nasty material all over the floors, a massive dead roach just plopped in the middle of the floor, woman's hair EVERYWHERE, and dead bird just laying on the balcony for good measure. Simon later claims the apartment was cleaned the day before (I think not). At this point, I was already on the fence about the quality and maintenance of this place, as I noticed practically every lightbulb/fixture was unfinished, under maintained, or not properly covered, bad door handles, etc. There was no toilet paper, paper towels, shampoo, or soap, and there was exactly only 4 towels for our stay. Finally we attempt to take a shower, to find out there was NO HOT WATER. And then tried flushing the toilet after having used it, to find out it didn't flush! We were absolutely fed up at this point, and ready to leave, but we informed Simon of all these problems and he said they'd be fixed the next day. Next day comes around and early in the morning the cleaning lady and maintenance man show up. There was a gas problem which he took care of, which apparently fixed the hot water issue. But the flushing apparently resulted from lack of water pressure for the entire building. Pretty much we were told that whenever we needed to use water, to go down to the maintenance room of the building on the lobby floor and open the water valve to allow more water pressure (small crawl-type space that you have to turn a lever inside). Yeah, not cool. My business partner who was with me had just counted the money in his wallet before the cleaning lady got there, and turns out when he checked his wallet again after she cleaned, she'd stolen $180 from him! She denied it and dared us to strip search her, which we obviously opted not to do. That money was long-gone. We finally decided we needed to get out of this poorly maintained hell-hole and found another place. We tried using the toilet one more time before we left but it didn't flush, again. There was a TV taken off a wall, several light bulbs missing, this place was an absolute mess. We'd been told there would be security 12-hours a day, a specific question we asked, and there was nobody during the 24 hours we spent. The hosts refuse to refund our money for the last 3 nights we did not stay there. SAVE YOURSELF THE TIME AND MONEY AND DON'T STAY...
You can probably see yourself and make an opinion by reading all the nice positive reviews (58) that we have received over the past 3 years. Of course you can turn everything into something negative if you want to and the truth maybe was that Christopher thought he paid for a brand new luxury apartment with pool, jacuzzi, concierge etc when the reality is that the apartment is in excellent shape, mostly remodeled but the building is 20 years old. We really tried to make everything right with Christopher but it was unfortunately impossible. He was determined to give us an incredible experience and he succeeded. We don´t want to comment his text here because it´s in general only lies and i hope you all can see through that.
I really hope that no one will ever go through what we had with this guests.
All the best,
Carolina and Simon
Simon and Carolina are fantastic hosts. They arranged the transportation to and from the airport and made every effort to make us feel at home. It has a fantastic view from the bedrooms and it looks exactly like in the pictures. The apartment was perfectly situated and only a 10 min taxi ride from Parque Lleras. I would definitely recommend staying here to anyone that is looking for a place in Medellin.
Carolina was very pleasant. She greeted me at the apartment. I never got to meet Simon. Over email he seemed like a no non-sense kind of guy. I asked him for directions to Villa Paula. He seemed annoyed. (website hidden) Maps does not work very well for Medellin so I had to ask for specifics. The apartment was very nice. It was about what I expected. The shower in the master bedroom wasn't working properly: It was missing the lever to send the water up to the shower head. A electrical extension is located behind the big head board. It was not easy to find. Taxi cabs to Parque Lleras are about $10,000 COP and about 10 minutes. I was surprised by how much traffic there is in Medellin. Taxis are everywhere. Use the Easy Taxi App.
We had a great experience dealing with Carolina. The property was perfect for us and they were very accommodating. I would not hesitate to stay here again!
