About John-Paul

I am a multi-lingual world traveler and I decided to make Medellín my home because it is one of the friendliest, comfortable and overall highest quality cities I've ever experienced. Some of my passions include foreign languages, health and fitness, architecture and design, cooking, wine and international travel. I almost always choose travel destinations where the primary language is NOT English. I am fluent in Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian and English. I love meeting interesting people from other countries and look forward to sharing my beautiful one-of-a-kind Casa del Reloj with respectful, high-quality guests of all nationalities. When traveling, I want to be comfortable and want things to work. I've taken painstaking efforts to provide such a destination. My motto in life is simple: "Life is short and everything comes down to family, friends and memories. So enjoy it RESPECTFULLY and try to have as few regrets as possible when it's all said and done."

John-Paul purchased this apartment in 2014

Why John-Paul chose La Florida

High-quality, respectful guests looking for a high-quality, memorable experience will love Casa del Reloj and especially our gorgeous penthouse, Cielo. If you are looking not just for a comfortable place to stay but rather a memorable place to stay, you found the right place in Casa del Reloj. From the traditional building methods and materials to the extraordinary attention to detail and comfort, Casa del Reloj offers its guests a unique combination of class, style, comfort and convenience simply unavailable anywhere else in Medellín.

What makes this apartment unique

I picked this location to build Casa del Reloj based on Location, Location, Location! There really is no better location in all of Medellin. It cost much do build Casa del Reloj as compared to other buildings in the area due to quality and uniqueness of the colonial style architecture but we really felt that Medellin had a need for an upscale, high end, traditional style but luxury accommodation for shorter term visits. Customers have really loved the comfort and convenience and in our first few year we are getting a significant number of repeat clients. The consistent reason I hear is ¨this space is special and i really feel at home.¨

Casa del Reloj is Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I consider myself well-travelled and never have I experienced the beauty, luxury, and comfort afforded by Casa del Reloj. My wife and I are retired and the past 3 summers have gone on vacations around the world with two other couples. No place has blended natural beauty with urban excitement quite like the neighborhood of el Poblado, and no hotel I have ever seen, let alone stayed in, has accomplished the same feat but to an exponential degree. My wife and our friends laughed about how we had travelled all the way to Colombia from Michigan and did not want to leave our hotel! It’s truly the most unique, amazing establishment any of us have ever seen. With fountains and gardens INSIDE our suite, the open-air concept in parts of it was mind-blowing. I spoke to the proprietor about it because it was so different from anything I’ve experienced, and he informed me that Medellin is one of only 3 regional climates that allow for such ambitious architectural design. The staff at Casa del Reloj are so friendly and helpful. They assisted in setting up all of our excursions and were available around the clock for any little thing we needed. I will definitely be recommending CDR to friends and family and I plan to make a return visit in the not so distant future!

The best hotel in Medellín. Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

My three brothers and I were fortunate enough to spend this past week at Casa Del Reloj and I can’t say enough great things about our experience. Gorgeous architecture, stylish interior design, incredible staff, amazing location, 5 star hotel amenities. We were right in the middle of happening night life and great cuisine. The staff made our vacation effortless by being welcoming and accommodating. They went beyond the call of duty by arranging all of our activities and transportation as well as making themselves available day and night for whatever we needed. The owner made us feel very welcome and gave us great recommendations in the area. I’ve never stayed in a place so beautiful in my life. The roof top views and the open garden next to our living room were breath taking. We can’t wait to go back.

Casa Del Reloj was absolutely a 5 star experience.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Del Reloj was absolutely a 5 star experience. Not only was our luxury suite (Ceilo)beautiful with not one but 2 fountains and an open roof concept; we also had 2 of our very own hammocks. We had access to our own roof deck with a jacuzzi and stunning views of Medellín. Every last detail was noticed including the most comfortable ergonomic couches we had the pleasure of experiencing. I wish we could have them in our own home! The location of Casa Del Reloj couldn’t have been better. Just steps away from the cutest street with cafes, boutiques, and even an outdoor gym! What really puts this place over the top is the gracious staff. Everyone was incredibly nice and gave the best recommendations on restaurants and excursions. I will definitely be back!

Excelente lugar en todos los aspectos!

  • 5 of 5

Viajé a Medellín con 3 colegas más por cuestiones de trabajo y me hospedé en la casa de reloj por 3 noches. Es un lugar muy cómodo, tranquilo, espacioso.

Como teníamos que hacer reuniones con clientes, contábamos con suficiente espacio para trabajar. El internet es muy veloz, que era justo lo que necesitabamos. Además, Cielo cuenta con un vídeo beam que pudimos emplear para las presentaciones y, con suerte, en una de las noches hubo un partido y proyectarlo allí fue genial!

El personal es muy amable y está pendiente de todos los detalles. Todos los días hacian el aseo muy bien. El apartamento es muy limpio. Cada habitación tiene su propio baño.

Todos los espacios del apartamento son muy amplios. El apartamento cuenta con un jacuzzi en el último piso, muy agradable para relajarse en la noche y hablar con los amigos mientras disfrutas de una buena cerveza.

Las puertas no tienen cerraduras para llaves sino que se abren con código.

Excelente sector. Cruzando la puerta se encuentran todo tipo de restaurantes y bares.

Wow! Increíble lugar! Mágicos detalles!

  • 5 of 5

Estuve hospedada en "Cielo" con mi novio y 3 parejas más por 4 noches. Visitamos la ciudad por turismo y tuvimos una maravillosa experiencia!

El apartamento es muy amplio, con un diseño rústico como ningún otro, con demasiados detalles que hacen que el espacio sea unico. Cada habitación tiene su propio baño, ventilador y aire acondicionado. A pesar de estar en un mismo apartamento, la privacidad entre una y otra habitación es increíble. Casi ni sientes que hay más personas en la casa. Pudimos dormir y descansar muy bien. Muy tranquilo.

Cielo tiene una cocina grande muy bien dotada e incluso un BBQ en el jardín que lo usamos un par de veces, pero cuando no queríamos cocinar saliamos a cenar en el sector. La ubicación ... Wow ... es fantástica!!! Hay infinidad de excelentes restaurantes para todos los gustos y todos los costos a sólo 2 o 3 minutos caminando.

Para destacar! ...

El jacuzzi en la terraza del apartamento! Genial!

La limpieza!  Impecable!

El Internet, muy rápido y sin inconvenientes.

El personal demasiado amable, siempre pendientes que estuviéramos bien, incluso nos ayudaron a seleccionar el Tour que queríamos hacer por la ciudad.

Nos hicieron sentir como en casa! Muy recomendado! Volveríamos una y mil veces! :)

Stunning hotel with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent three nights at La Casa de Reloj in Medellin. And couldn't have had a better experience. The penthouse suite (cielo) and the suite (cascada) were clean and fitted out with all the modern conveniences including stylish ergonomic furniture. The hotel building itself, is beautiful, recently renovated and located in the heart of the lively Poblado neighborhood. It was close to many excellent bars, boutiques and restaurants while also remaining very quiet at nights. We couldn't hear a sound from the streets while sleeping in the very comfortable beds. The concierge was extremely attentive, offering us ground transportation and local tour reservations if needed. I had to do a little work during our stay, which was no problem due to the lightning fast internet connection. An added bonus was the personal guided tour of the area by the manager. All in all we had a fantastic time at Casa Reloj and one which I would recommend to anyone traveling in Medellin.
