I am a happy person and uncomplicated. I love music, theater and film. I consider myself a lover of ecology and work towards it.
Overall a great experience! Check-in/check-out were smooth, apartment was as described, no surprises and everything you need. Sebastian was more than attentive and a great host. Excellent location, overall I would still rent from here given the option.
Great apartment! Stayed there for a month and would highly recommend it.
El apartamento es excelente, muy completo, un ambiente increible. Pase un mes espectacular en Medellin en uno de los mejores lugares. Rodeado de naturaleza y el mejor clima no pude tener una mejor estadia. Lo super recomiendo!
Sebastián's Castropol home was a perfect way to acclimate to this beautiful city. A friend and I spent one week here before we knew anything about Medellin.
It's a wonderful apartment. It's not large, but it certainly doesn't feel small. In fact, the layout makes it feel quite spacious with 6 distinct areas (kitchen, balcony, living room, working area, 2 bedrooms) and an open living concept.
The kitchen was pretty big and the island made food preparation and eating easy.
The home also has good internet connection. This was important to me since I work online and am dependant on WiFi to get by. I had no problem here and was able to do video calls.
The location is good, but not great. It's in the hills and from the main street of El Poblado you have to trek up a steep hill. I didn't mind this so much, but it's not an easy feat. The good thing is that taxis are cheap, so you can rely on that.
It's fairly close to parque lleras. The first day, we walked there in about 20/25 minutes. Not bad, but we decided to taxi the rest of the time. There's a grocery store about a similar distance away. If I were to do it again, I'd probably want to be lower down or closer to the park. That said, you wouldn't get as good of views as you do from the balcony!
Sebastián was easy to deal with, helpful, and quick to respond. An excellent host and I'd recommend staying here.

We had a great experience in this apartment. Located in the Castropol area of Poblado, the apartment is well equipped, quiet and comfortable. Sebastián, even though we didn't meet him in person, responded quickly to any questions. The building porters were friendly and professional and can also help with any questions about the area. If you like to walk, the apartment is up hill from Avenida Poblado and there's not a lot in easy walking distance. But taxis are cheap and the porters will call you one any time you need it. There's a great view from the balcony and we spent a lot of time gazing at the city as well as watching the hundreds of birds in the trees just below. We highly recommend this apartment.
Great place in a killer location! Sebastian was wonderful about returning messages and the apartment had everything you need!
I will definitely be back to this great flat. Clean, super convenient location, and safe. Had a great time over there. Communication was always on time and helpful.
El apto esta super bien ubicado, la seguridad está perfecta, además de estar impecable el loft., Sin duda volvería a este lugar.
This apartment was exactly as advertised. The pictures were accurate and the furniture and kitchen were in good shape. The location was good, within walking distance to bars, restaurants, buses, grocery stores, and the Metro. I never once took a taxi from the apartment. The area is safe for walking during all hours for the most part. The balcony is bigger than it looks from the website and offers a very nice view of the skyline. I cooked in the apartment every day and found the cooking equipment adequate to suit my needs. The wifi was the best I have ever had in many years of traveling in South America.
The apartment is listed as a studio, but the space is broken up nicely and feels more like a 1 bedroom. I spent 12 days with my girlfriend 24 hours a day, and we had plenty of room to give each other space as needed. The guest bathroom away from the bedroom area was nice.
There were a few minor negatives. I would like to see a TV in the living room area so I don't always have to watch TV in bed. Also, the hot water wasn't great. I had about 3-4 minutes of hot water for showers most of the time. Being a frequent traveler to Latin America, I am accustomed to this and not a big deal for me. There was a washer but no dryer. This is also typical of Latin America. The gym had a bike, treadmill, and plenty of open floor space. I would like to see some dumbbells there.
Overall I felt this apartment was an excellent deal. Sebastian was very professional and easy to deal with, and he gave me a very good price. I will stay here again on my next trip to Medellin.
Response from Sebastián:
Thanks Kevin for the detailed review. I just wanted to clarify that the problem with the water heater is already solved so now other guests can enjoy hot water for a longer period of time. I also want to apologise for that.
Medellin is a glorious city and I can't imagine a better place to enjoy it fully than this apartment. If anything it's better even than the photos and description portray. Sebastian is a complete professional, from first contact through check-out. All the 5-star ratings are very well deserved!
