About David Ross

I am a hospitality executive who visits Medellin often to enjoy the incredible weather, restaurants, nightlife and shopping. It is one of the best cities in the world. Medellin is as safe or safer than any large city in America. Poblado, the most exclusive neighborhood where our property is located is very tourist friendly. Besides the many things to do in the city and adjoining areas of Medellin, there are many day trips that you can make including to Guatape a beautiful high mountain lake 1.5 hours from the city and other historic small towns in the countryside. The scenery in and around Medellin will take your breath away and combined with the year round spring time climate, outdoor activities abound. Many cyclists come to train on the steep hill climbs, paragliding, boating, skiing, hiking, golf, tennis and may more activities are available.

David Ross purchased this apartment in 2007

Why David Ross chose Medellin

The apartment is a unique modern 3 level open design with 20' ceilings in the living room and kitchen. The view will take your breath away and it just keeps getting better as the weather and lighting changes throughout the valley. Spectacular private roof top terrazo that makes you feel you are commanding the entire city and valley below. Very nice security and administration who will help to make your stay enjoyable.

What makes this apartment unique

Incredible Views! Private Sauna Private Steam Room Private Jacuzzi on Private 25th Floor Terrace A Truly One of a Kind Apartment in One of the Friendliest Cities in the World. I fell in love with Medellin my first visit over 12 years ago and my experiences keep me coming back...

Beautiful Pent House !

  • 4 of 5

Condo is better than pictures depict.Excellent views.Clean, well equipped with cooking Utensils,

Washer/Dryer with laundry detergent, enough good quality towels, Plenty of Hot water for 4 people

24 hour security. Strictly Residential area not walkable to Parque Lleras, Provenza etc but accessable by taxi/uber, cost only a couple of $. Also a bus stop one block away

Paula was nice enough to buy us grocery ahead of time and arrange a ride from the Airport as we did arrive after midnight.

The only reason for 4 stars: you would expect basic amenities in a luxury pent house with 5 star ratings, such as soap, shampoo and blankets,it gets pretty chilly at night, also the door lock took a while to open.Unable to warm Jaccuzzi due to technical issues.

I would still highly recommend the pent house

Owner's Response: Rubina, Thanks so much for the great review. We usually have soap and shampoo stocked and I am not sure why it was not available to you but will make sure this is handled going forward. I apologize for the Jacuzzi issue. It is very reliable but it sounds like there was an issue during your stay. We hope you will come back and enjoy the fabulous apartment and views again in the near future....

Amazing views - Best apartment manger ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived a little late because we had trouble finding the building. Make sure to get the address before you arrive to Medellin if you arrive by car ;) When we arrived to the apartment we were very pleased to see that the apartment lived up to the pictures. Even though the apartment dozen't live fully up to european standards I can give my warmest recommendations to rent this penthouse apartment! You won't find anything near as good as this apartment compared to the price. immediately we fell totally in love with the apartment. We stayed there 3 guys and it was perfect for us. After inspecting the apartment Puala (The apartment manger) arrived, and she was the kindest, coolest and warmest woman we've meet for a long time! Paula made our vacation one of the best ever! So if you doubt this is the place for you - then I can promise you that Paula will make your stay 10x better than you can make it yourself. Paula showed us places we wouldn't have experienced on our own and she could make everything possible. With no exceptions. If you can think it, then Paula will do everything she can to make it happen to give you the best vacation ever. David is very lucky to have Paula as the apartment manager. I hope to go back here as soon as possible! Besides the cool apartment, the amazing views and the best apartment manager ever - the security guys are awesome and the location is exactly where you want to stay when you visit Medellín! David - if you want to sell, please contact me :)

Can not come up with enough Superlatives! Truly the UTIMATE PENTHOSE! Pictures are beautiful but cannot come near to seeing it with your own eyes. From the time Paula met us at the airport until a week later when we had to leave, our only problem was deciding whether to use the steam room, the sauna or the roof top Jacuzzi! Request security to call taxi and for $3 taxi will bring you to dozens of restaurants and the nicest section of Medellin. Thank you David, Paula, and the friendly and helpful security guards. We will be back soon. John and Terri M.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

It was even better than advertised. Incredible view and it is located in a prime spot in Medellin. The apartment building is very close to the airport and all the nice shopping centers and best places for sight seeing, like parque lleras and the park of botero. The staff of the complex was truly amazing and helpful.. I don't think I will ever check in into a hotel again. I'll def be coming back to this place

El Poblado is a comunity in the metropolitan area of the city of Medellín, Colombia. According to a 2005 census the population is 94,704 distributed among its land area of 23 km2. It is the wealthiest district of the city. The comunity consists of 24 barrios and is located at the south-east of the city boundaries. Its western boundary with the comunity of Guayabal runs along the Medellín River; it limits to the south with the city of Envigado, to the east with the township of Santa Elena and to the north with the comunity of La Candelaria and Buenos Aires.

Pueblado has a range of restaurants, shopping and attractions including Parque Lleres which is a central area well known for its restaurants and night life just 5 minutes by taxi from the apartment.

El Poblado is also known as Las Manzanas de Oro (The Golden Apples)[2] because it is the main center of the industrial and commercial life of the second largest economy of Colombia.

The name El Poblado (The Village) derives from the first Spanish settlement of the Aburrá Valley in 1616 that was built in what is today its main square. In 1675 the Spanish administration founded another village in El Sitio de Aná (The Aná Place), today's Berrío Square, designed to become the center of the future Medellín but El Poblado instead became the main economic center during the 20th century.
