Airy 3-story penthouse is in a very Colombian neighborhood bordering El Poblado. Being on the building’s 5th floor, it's close enough to the ground to feel the ‘pueblito’ energy below. Lots of balcony space and a spacious rooftop terrace for splendid valley views.

This listing was changed in Aug 2018 to make the first floor available as a private 1 bdrm with full kitchen, bathroom, living and dining, plus access to the roof top terrace.

The 2nd floor of the apartment is separate and private.

The space
• Wifi speed = 20 megs down (4 megs up), plenty fast enough for video conferencing
• balconies/lots of outdoor space with plants
• partially covered rooftop terrace with great 360º views
• supermarkets, fruit/vegetable stand 1 block away, convenience store across the street and many more within blocks, butcher shop 1 block away; we typically get all of our groceries within the neighbourhood and avoid the supermarkets, though there are several supermarkets within 10 blocks
• flourishing street of restaurants a 10-minute walk away [our favorite is Olivia's Pizzeria with excellent European style pizza and sangria at great prices], but there are many options to choose, from Colombian specialties to steak houses, Spanish tapas, Peruvian, and other niche restaurants to explore; there's even an Italian gelato shop that we love to go to on occasion - almost forgot to mention the best bakery [whole grain loaf varieties] in the entire valley is right here, too [Colombian panaderias tend to make the sickly sweet, very white variety of bread; we have yet to see rye bread available anywhere else]
• 10-minute cab ride [$5] to the Zona Rosa of Poblado [Parque El Poblado, Parque Lleras]
Parque Envigado is a 10-minute walk away.

Guest access
You will have access to the covered rooftop terrace (closed 11pm to 6am) and its wonderful views and everything shown in the listing photos. There is a fully equipped kitchen, as well as a full bathroom.

Other things to note
Wifi speed is 20 megs, plenty fast enough for video conferencing.

There isn't an elevator in the building.

Please respect all other building residents at all times by maintaining a friendly demeanour and keeping noise levels low, etc. Within the building stairwell, sounds easily travel into all apartments. The biggest complaint I get from the superintendent is that the street level door slams shut when foreigners walk through.

Smoking is possible on the balconies only.

The rooftop terrace is not available between 11pm and 6am.

Location

El Poblado, Medellin, Antioquia

It is often described as 'muy pueblito', which means it's very village-like. You'll get a strong impression of what Colombia really is by staying here. During the 2-month long Christmas festive season, every home exterior is decorated in Christmas lights. It is very common to see 'sancocho' [a Colombian soup/stew] being cooked over a fire at nearly every intersection during this time.

On occasion, at any time of year, a cabalgata [people on horseback going on a pub crawl] will ride right by the apartment to the bar a couple of doors down from the building. You'll know it when you hear the clip-clopping of the horseshoes on the street pavement.

All homes are covered in lovely clay tile shingles. It's an aesthetically pleasing, authentically Colombian environment.
