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

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

So many positives, where to start? First, beautiful place, unique decor, warm, large living room. Unbelievable location! Walk to great restaurants going one way, the center of El Poblado the other and 1 short block to the grocery store. But of all the amenities, the best part are the young women available throughout the day. Friendly, warm, great suggestions for restaurants and made all the arrangements for our day trip! Can't say enough about Johana.

Casa del Reloj Principito Medellín

  • 4 of 5

This was my second visit to Medellin and my first visit and stay at Casa del Reloj, I really enjoyed my stay and I would definitely stay again and I look forward to staying again. The location is perfect, the staff were always helpful in every way and the suite was perfect. I enjoyed every aspect. It was perfect. The only thing that I would of liked was to have a larger fridge/freezer, the small fridge was enough for a few items but no freezer space to keep ice. That's my only "complaint" but I make it work so all is good. I cant wait to be back. I enjoyed my stay very much!!

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.

Adventurer & Traveler

  • 4 of 5

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.
