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."

One of the Best in Medellin
We recently stayed a week in Casa Del Reloj. I constantly have friends and co-workers that stay in different locations in Medellin, so I’m very familiar with Numerous Airbnb and High end hotels like the Charlee. I believe Casa del Reloj is the best both combination of both. You have the Liberty of an Airbnb but the service of a High End Hotel. The location is private and at the same time close to all the best restaurants and night life, you are walking distance to everything. The actual location is very beautiful it has a brick colonial style design, the Jacuzzi is great you can just sit back and relax, all the rooms are very comfortable. They have direct TV and we were able to watch all the NBA Playoff Games. The Staff is very friendly and accommodating, they helped book reservations and exclusive restaurants, the also facilitated parking for when I needed to use it. In one instance we had forgotten to put the “please come and clean sign” on our door and when the staff was ready to leave at 4:30 pm I asked them I could just have some fresh towels, they still came in, changed all the towels, cleaned the sheets, and washed all the dishes. They also facilitated the check out since we were leaving on sat at 4:30am to the airport, they came in checked everything and gave us back our cash security deposit. This is by far one my favorite locations in Medellin and we will be staying here again.
Andres, of the countless excellent reviews we have been blessed to receive from our happy guests, yours has to be one of the very best!! We greatly appreciate your taking the time to describe the many features and benefits you appreciate when staying at Casa del Reloj. It will surely help other visitors to Medellin make an informed decision when seeking the best accommodations in our beautiful city!! We hope to see you again very soon! And please share in your FB!!!
Perfect Family/Group Stay in Medellín!
I can't think of a better space for my family (4 couples) and myself to have shared before and after my wedding events! Even prior to our arrival, the Casa del Reloj staff was very thoughtful and responsive with my questions. Upon arrival, the space was clean and the staff available in person and via phone to address any of our concerns - from helping us get a taxi, to a question about the jacuzzi (I missed the intro walk through space with them as I was handling bride/wedding stuff), and even to a last minute request for a printout I needed for my wedding ceremony! The location is perfect for those who want to be within walking distance of restaurants, shops, and Parque Lleras area yet also removed enough from these to have a quiet night's sleep (this was important for me). Whether it was going to the supermarket or nearby mall to watch a movie, this seemed like a very central location for me. Everyone who stayed here says they want to return (even the groom who visited but stayed elsewhere and said they'd like to stay here as well). It was such a great stay that I found out that during my honeymoon while I was traveling around Colombia, my family decided to stay a few more days here (well other space available at property since this one with 5 rooms and jacuzzi was booked)! The cost is definitely more than your average options in the area but that is because this place is above average. It is a "treat yourself" space, great for special occasions. I'm thankful that I found it available for my dates and that the staff made it a smooth experience for all of us. This made for a very happy and stress-free bride! We will definitely be returning here for anniversary celebrations and family gatherings.

It was a great stay until the end...
The property was so beautiful and the staff was extremely helpful! My friends and I had a great experience up until it was time for us to depart.
We are a group of 6 and booked a van airport transfer through CdR to the airport. Our flight was early in the morning (7am) so I asked the property manager the night before our scheduled departure about my cash deposit. She assured me that in the morning when I checked out somebody would be on site to return my cash deposit.
The next morning (check out day) we are all ready to head to the airport and to our dismay there was no van airport transfer and no one from the property staff to assist us! We were in a state of panic, frenzy and outrage! No one from the property management's office was answering the cell phone or text messages. The phone was locked in the property management's office that we could hear ringing every time we called. No one from the property management staff was on hand to help us with our van issue or return our security deposit! As the minutes kept ticking and no driver was insight we had no choice but to try get a cab off the street which is no easy feat that early in the morning in El Poblado. Not just 1 cab BUT to get 3 separate cabs that could fit us and our luggage. Just as the last group of 2 got into the 3rd cab the van finally showed up. The driver apologised and said that he overslept. I appreciated his honesty but by now we were racing to the airport with a few minutes to spare to make our flight. Through the grace of God we were able to make our flight! But we still left Medellin without our security deposit!
A few hours later the staff of CdR returned my messages and apologised for the tardy van airport transfer and for failure to return the security deposit. They offered to send the money via PayPal and would cover the fees we incurred. They then had the audacity to offer us a free night stay at the CdR at a future date after paying for two nights. I found it to be pretty assumptious of them that I would return to Medellin. Why would you offer to compensate me for my troubles with an offer that I can never use in the future? It is not cheap to lodge at CdR and my friends and I also booked massages, personal chef services and excursions through CdR and we would have appreciated a compensation that would have truly exemplified that CdR cared about the inconvenience we suffered.
Wow, Emanuela! A two-star review after giving you and your group a five-star experience?!? We bent over backwards for you your entire stay, responding to more requests than all but a few groups since we have been in operation. Purely as a courtesy, we help guests with transportation and other activities at no charge and with no remuneration. You should know we have no control over such services. We are a private home, not a hotel yet we exceed guests expectations consistently--hence our 5-star reviews almost across the board. That said you had a horrible experience with that transportation service and we are very sorry to hear about that. We will not be referring him in the future. As for the deposit, that is a click of a keyboard to return to you by PayPal, so why you felt the need to point that out as a negative is beyond me.
Fabulous location, great house, friendly and helpful staff
Had a truly fantastic time staying here this past week. The location is perfect - steps away from amazing shops and restaurants, but just secluded enough that the noise from the bars doesn't keep you up at night. I had a large group with a lot of shifting dates and different arrival times and the staff was so helpful and gracious throughout - helping us set up airport transfers and giving fantastic local recommendations. Can't review these guys highly enough!
Morgan, your group was absolutely fantastic, just the type of guests we love to host at Casa del Reloj! Please come back any time and let all your friends in NYC and LA know about us! All the best, JP and the entire CdR staff.
Had an amazing time at this home. Very spacious. Staff including the maids were awesome. The hot tub in the living room was my favorite feature. Just lovely! Ubered the whole weekend with no issues
