  • Big, roomy apartment, helpful owner, great location

    "We were fortunate to choose this apartment for a two-month stay in Medellin. The king-sized bed in the main bedroom with an ensuite bathroom and a large view window was a real plus. Although we are just one couple we found uses for the second bedroom that made our stay easy and convenient. I worried at first that there is no air conditioning but I soon learned that there is no need for it. Medellin's elevation and very pleasant weather kept us comfortable almost all of the time. If it got a little too warm, the fans in the apartment gave us all the cooling we needed. Every morning we took advantage of the veranda off the living room to sit outside, drink our coffee or tea, eat our breakfast and catch up on the news. The apartment is up a hill from the main part of Poblado (Hey, it's Medellin. The hills are everywhere!) and I took advantage of that fact to get some good, vigorous walking in. But the truth is that it's just a ten minute walk down to the business district and only a bit more to the Poblado station of the GREAT Medellin Metro. We ate out much of the time but when we decided to cook for ourselves the small kitchen was sufficiently equipped for us to do that. Special kudos go to the security in the building, especially the 24-hour doormen. Very nice guys. The apartment owner was very easy to deal with, responsible to every question and very helpful arranging house cleaning for us at a very affordable price when we wanted that. We would happily go back again to stay in the same apartment. We were a little sad to leave, in fact, at the end of a great trip."

  • Wonderful home with beautiful gardens, great views, and an excellent host

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay in Vicky's beautiful home. The home is located in a quiet section of Quito (Conocoto). It has good access to the highways... we were able to take day trips in our rental car from the home to Otavalo, the next day to Cotopaxi, and the next day to Papallacta (hot springs). It was very nice to return to a lovely quiet home after our day trips. Vicky has created a genuine oasis from the city on her property. The grounds are wonderfully landscaped with gardens and trees and the views of the city below are beautiful, especially at dusk. The property is behind walls so it feels very private, secluded and secure. There is a lovely pool that is heated by a solar heating system, so it was always 85+ degrees. There is also a ping-pong table, a hammock, and lots of space in which to relax. The home itself is large, comfortable, and very nicely decorated. It has all of the features you would want including three bedrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, good WIFI, TV (don't really need it), hammock, outdoor tables and sofas, and more. Vicky lives on the property in a separate home. We definitely had all of the privacy we wanted but we very much enjoyed getting to know Vicky as well. She was able to give us advice about traveling in the area, finding groceries, etc. All in all, we highly recommend this home for couples, families (our 8-year old loved this home), groups of friends, etc. It is affordable, convenient, very pleasant, and has a wonderful host in Vicky."

  • Excellent stay!

    "We were a group of 7 adults. Believe me, there was plenty of room for everyone. The place is very private and secure. The decor was well appointed and comfortable. Martin is a true asset of the place. He not only arranged our arriving and departing airport transfers, he assisted us with a reservation at La Cabrera Steakhouse for our large party. (don't miss this place for steak, short walk, outstanding food). Martin also assisted us for our dinner on our last night. We arranged to have a private chef (Agustina Gotelli) prepare our meal. She arrived exactly on time with her 2 assistants, very professional and the food they prepared was outstanding! Thank you Agus. The photos from the website are accurate as to the house, only that the place is probably bigger that the pictures represent. The pool was heated and was a perfect end to a long day exploring Palermo. Thanks again Martin. Feel free to forward my email to any prospective guests! Doug"
