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 El Poblado

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.¨

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The Casa del Reloj significantly exceeded my very high expectations. The property itself is magnificent. The ultra-luxury unit “Cielo” is awesome. Authentic in every respect, the attention to detail in its construction and decoration of the entire facility is meticulous and artful. It’s condition is pristine and the dedicated and welcoming staff make sure it remains so. The location is exceptional – located in the heart of a very cool enclave in Medellin full of restaurants, bars, galleries and great energy. The staff guided me expertly on how best to enjoy my time in town and arranged for activities on my behalf. After my experience at Casa del Reloj, I can report with certainty that there is nowhere else in Medellin I would stay!

Amazing stay in an enchanting land

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed "La Casa del Reloj" as much as i did the entire trip to Medellin. The condo was just amazing. We were a family of 3 with an infant, and they bent over backwards to take of us. The girls in the front were so accommodating, and the owner is a great guy. The beds great, showers amazing!, clean home!! The A/C in the bedrooms were a great treat when it came to night time. I recommend this home for anyone visiting Medellin. Really it's in an amazing area, lots of nightlife!! BIG TIME RECOMMEND!

Magnifico!

  • 5 of 5

If visiting Medellin, El Cielo at Casa Del Reloj is THE PLACE TO STAY! Not only is the complex AMAZING - the apartment, beautiful, clean and spacious; the rooftop hot tub, divine; the views, gorgeous; the location, perfect (very central, and nearby to a market, restaurants, and fun nightlife), the AC throughout the apartment, clutch; etc. - the hospitality my friends and I experienced was like that of a 5 star hotel. The Casa Del Reloj team is extremely helpful and friendly, and never hesitated to go out of their way to make our stay more enjoyable. Overall, I can honestly say that I highly doubt there's a better place to stay than Casa Del Reloj when staying in Medellin, factoring in accommodations, the host/hospitality, and location. My friends and I loved the place and even after leaving for home, couldn't stop Whatsapping about how much we enjoyed our stay here. If I were to return to Medellin, I wouldn't consider choosing any other place to stay, assuming availability. So if you're planning a trip to Medellin, don't hesitate and book El Cielo at Casa Del Reloj! I promise you won't regret it!

Do Not Underestimate

  • 5 of 5

El Cielo at Casa Del Reloj is larger and more beautiful than you can imagine. The location could not be more perfect. It is 2 blocks from the trendiest shopping and restaurants in Medellin. Also only a 5 minute walk to Parque Lleras, where much of the nightlife surrounds. You'll get great views of the city from each of the windows and balconies as it sits at a slightly higher elevation than most of the city.

John-Paul is an intelligent and passionate bi-lingual American who gave us plenty of privacy during our stay. His bi-lingual staff is attentive and will work to make your stay fantastic, while booking any reservations you require.

This place will make you feel like the king of Medellin and make you want to skip out on your existing life and never leave!

Thanks John-Paul! We all look forward to returning.

We had an amazing time in Medellin! The Penthouse suite was great, and John Paul was a fabulous host! The location can not be beat, and the Jacuzzi on the roof was perfect for relaxing. I will definitely be staying there again!
