I am an eco entrepreneur based in California. I work in Colombia and Brazil and travel quite a bit.
The house was impeccable and in a lovely forested enclave - a perfect escape from the urban grind that is Bogota. Emily is great -- upbeat fun vibe in the house and really nice common areas. Would totally stay there again (in fact plan to) and hard to beat the location near to Usaquen, Zona T, Parque 93 and many of Bogota's nicer spots. Great spot, good ambiance and fun hostess -- super score locale and hope to be back!
This is (email hidden). We enjoyed our stay and the strawberries that Emily left for us! Good restaurants close by and a nice kitchen to cook in if you want to stay in for the night. Thanks again Emily!
Would recommend to other travelers to Medellin. Emily is friendly and her place is well located and nicely furnished. Great place!
Great apartment, great location, great host! Easy communication/check-in/check-out. Will definitely stay here again when I am back in Medellin. Highly recommended! Thanks Emily!
The apartment is in a great location, and is amazing... Emily was completely reliable and very easy to get along with. If in town again, her place is the first one I'll look for.
Me and my wife with our daughter stayed in Emily's apt for few days in the last week of December. It is really an escape from the busy city with lots of green around. Everything you need to explore Medellin is within a short distance. She was really dedicated to make sure our stay was seamless. We are from miami, florida and we felt there like home. Thanks for everything.
Emily's apartment was great: spacious, quiet, calm, and super clean. The yoga mat was put to good use, and the place is just a few hundred meters from a small mall with the basics and near Poblado/Parque Lleras and everything it has to offer. The only downside is that you're a decent walk from the Metro, but that seems to be an issue in lots of Medellin since the city spreads a lot further than the Metro. Emily is also a super useful guide who can give you info and recommendations for food (especially if you are vegetarian/health conscious) and tourism, and is generally awesome.
Medellin is an amazing city, great restaurants, great weather, amazing people (even taxi drivers are courteous), people go around with a smile on their face and after spending a week their you actually start understanding why these happens.
Staying at Emily´s place makes the experience even better, her one bedroom apartment has everythimg you need for your stay, its very clean, its calm and spacious. You can see squirrels from the leaving room room window!!! The best thing is that it is a 5 minute walk away from parque Lleras and Primera street (designer street). Emily (email hidden) and everything was in order for our arrival. She even wrote an email to ask if everything was in order.
In short words
We found a home in Medellin.
I stayed a few weeks at Emily's apartment in Medellin. Overall the experience was excellent and I would recommend the place to anybody wishing to spend some time in Medellin. The location is very convenient and Emily's apartment super comfortable. The whole process of check in and check out was very smooth and Emily had everything organised perfectly!
Emily was an amazing host, her apartment offered everything I needed and the building staff were Phenomenal.
It was a pleasure meeting Emily and hosting her for a night in the water tower. She is friendly, quiet and clean. Highly recommended.
It was a honor to host Emily! She gave me very good suggestions to improve my lodging as she is an airbnb host as well. Emily is interesting, is a very nice person, very sensitive and encourage. She is spontaneous, respectful, friendly, kind, opened, organized, clean, generous and very smart. She shared with me a lot of her work and I learned a lot. It was very nice to have her in my apartment. I will host her again for sure.
Emily is an amazing and authentic woman! I'm very glad to have had the change to meet her, to host her and to share with her. She is smart, generous, sweet, kind, open and is always smiling. Besides, is quite, respectful and organized. I won't hesitate to host her again. I highly recommend her as a guest. She would be the perfect guest and host for anyone.
A Emily é uma pessoa muito simpática e educada, tranquila e organizada. Apesar de sua estadia ter sido breve, tivemos uma empatia muito boa. Espero que ela volte mais vezes.
Emily is an amazing and great person. I am glad to have had the change to meet her some years ago. She is smart woman, sweet and kind, and most important that she is always smiling and positive.
Emily besides (email hidden) and person, provides an excellent experience and down on the ground knowledge that the guide books can't touch! I'll be heading back and staying with her on my return through !
I stayed at Emily's apartment in Medellin-and came back later to visit, thanks to her amazing hospitality. She was super helpful in providing info about the apartment, neighborhood, and things to see in Medellin.
The apartment was lovely, with nice decor and in a beautiful, leafy, but convenient area. It felt totally safe, the staff was friendly, and I had a great visit. Emily's also extremely knowledgeable about Colombia as a whole including some more off the beaten path spots, which I recommend asking her about if you've got extra time and curiosity.
I've worked with Emily for over 3 years now and I can't speak highly enough of her as a friend and colleague. She's clean, organized, and always up to date on what's going on, from the freshest stall at the local farmer's market to the election results in the country next door. Whether you're visiting for business or just planning your next move, she'll have you up to speed and enjoying the town in no time.
Conoci a Emily por intermedio de un amigo mutuo. Conozco y admiro el trabajo que estan haciendo generando modelos de sostenibilidad y conservación. Recomiendo totalmente a Emily tanto para ser hospedada en Airbnb, como anfitriona, con seguridad tendrán una experiencia maravillosa con ella.
Emily's apartment is one of the best I've seen in Bogota. It's almost as if you were in some quiet place outside the city since there are so many trees and gardens surrounding it. There are some great views from the windows.
Emily is also an great person to be around. She is very friendly and reliable.
I met Emily a year ago when I host her through airbnb, and since that moment, we became very good friends. To host her was an excellent experience! She is a strong woman and a beautiful human being, open, receptive, brave and outspoken. You´ll love to meet her as much as I did. I highly recommend her as host or guest!
