About John-Paul

I am a passionate multi-lingual world traveler. I decided to make Medellín my home because it is one of the friendliest, most 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 life 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

Casa del Reloj is unlike any property in Medellin as far as style, location, comfort, sound insulation and overall quality. Prepare to enjoy an experience and memory, not just a place to stay.

What makes this apartment unique

Most comfortable, ergonomic furniture anywhere, fastest internet, keyless door entry, #1, safest location just steps from best restaurants, cafes and boutiques in Medellin.

Very nice everything you could want at a resonable price

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for the first time. It was a great accommodations . All the conveniences that you could want. The staff was nice. The owner took the time to introduce himself. I would definitely stay here again. One thing I would have requested is the refrigerator to be stocked with water, juice, beer and soda. I didn't have time to shop. It would have been a blessing to have some of these refreshments in the room late at night when I got back from exploring Medellin.

First of all I found the place to be clean, comfortable and secure. The neighborhood was great with many places to eat, stroll and people watch. The staff was friendly & communicative when needed.

I would definitely choose to stay here again. A conveniences I wish they offered was the option for the apartment refrigerator to be stocked with beverages, water, beer, juice and ice. Based upon my knowledge as an experience traveler, I think the quality and value of the residence equates with the price and services.

Owner's Response: Antone, thank you for such a thoughtful and wonderful review. We wish you had made mention of your food list request when you first made your reservation. While as a private home we do not have the resources to do this on a wholesale basis, and there is a large supermarket within walking distance, we would have been happy to accommodate you. Thank you again for choosing Casa del Reloj! We hope to see you again soon!

Casa del Reloj

  • 5 of 5

I love everything about Casa del Reloj; from friendly and always available staff (Damaris and Johana), location, cleanliness, room condition and great price. What I loved the most, is they made you feel like at home. I went to Medellin for the first time in my life this past April, not knowing anybody and not knowing what to do. When I got to Casa del Reloj, they helped me find transportation and a great tour guide (his name is Andre's and he is amazing. Definately suggest you ask for him when you get there because he is very affordable and will definately make sure you have great time). Also, I had to check out late, and by late I mean stay extra 8 hours and Casa del Roloj staff was so kind that they offered me to stay at NO extra charge. I travel a lot and I never received this type of service.

I had a great time in Medellin, thanks to Casa del Roloj staff and because of the experience I had, I decided to come back to Medellin 2 weeks later. If you are living in New York, it is much cheaper and easier to go to Medellin then west coast.

I would strongly encourage and suggest that you pick Casa del Reloj if you are thinking about traveling to Colombia.

Can't go wrong!

  • 4 of 5

As advertised. Units are beautiful and the location in El Poblado is convienent. Restaurants, nightlife and stores are in short walking distance. Santafe mall is a $3 taxi ride away. Rooms had air-conditioning, satellite TV with English channels, iron w/board and a safe. I am 6'5 and the bed was great. John Paul was great and very helpful. After I checked in around 11pm local time he was litteraly walking around the neighborhood with me and another couple showing us where things where. If you want to party in your unit, this is not the place for you. No loud music or noise is prohihibited. I will stay here again!

I love this place!

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure to stay at El Pablado for a week. My accommodations were excellent, having very large rooms with comfort and style. I absolutely love the style of the entire building exterior and interior design. The building being completely remodeled to capture an older time period but also includes all the modern conveniences of today. The area of town was incredible with sidewalk cafes', shops, conveinence stores, all within walking distance of El Pablado. The area was safe and people were very friendly. Staying at El Pablado was an extremely pleasant experience, one that I am happy to share in this review. If you have the opportunity to go to Medellin this is the place to stay!

Best location in El Poblado, Parque LLeras

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my girlfriend after meeting the owner on a walk by and getting a tour of this most interesting and unique new apartment. John-Paul explained to us the details of the custom made furnishings, original antiques integrated into the artwork throughout this brand new colonial modern style house with the clock.

The Principito suite is very spacious with two large windows overlooking the "quebrada" or brook. the large bedroom was great for relaxing and watching some USA Direct TV style channels. Since I was also working away from home on this trip, I was really pleased with the 35-45 Mbps download speeds I was able to get on my laptop while working at the built in desk/work station area. Lots of ceiling lamps, desk lights, reading lights and extra outlets all over the place make this an excellent and well thought out design. The owner also explained how the beds were custom made, with 4" larger than typical Colombian beds. That works out great for my 6'2" height. Nice, firm and comfortable for a great sleep. Total black out windows too, thanks to the double pane, sound reducing glass windows along with the colonial style wood shutters. The apartment includes a kitchen. For our purposes we just took advantage of the refrigerator and the microwave as there is fantastic international cuisine within 5 minutes walking distance in almost all directions. I've stayed in other places before in Medellin, this is by far and away the best!
