This home is in a very Colombian neighborhood near El Poblado. On the building’s 5th floor, it's close enough to the ground to feel the ‘pueblito’ energy below. Lots of balcony space and access to a spacious rooftop terrace for splendid valley views.

In Aug 2018, a wall and door were added to divide the first floor as a private 1 bdrm apartment with full kitchen, bathroom, living and dining room. This is what is offered in this listing plus access to the rooftop terrace.

The space
All terrain bike with rear rack available for rent for $10US/day with $100 deposit. Please advise in advance if interested to ensure the bike is ready and available for use.

• Wifi speed = 1000 mbps down (30 mbps up), plenty fast enough for video conferencing
• balconies/lots of outdoor space with plants
• partially covered rooftop terrace with great 360º views
• supermarkets, fruit/vegetable stand 1 block away, convenience store across the street and many more within blocks, butcher shop 1 block away; we typically get all of our groceries within the neighbourhood and avoid the supermarkets, though there are several supermarkets within 10 blocks
• flourishing street of restaurants a 10-minute walk away [our favorite is Olivia's Pizzeria with excellent European style pizza and sangria at great prices], but there are many options to choose, from Colombian specialties to steak houses, Spanish tapas, Peruvian, and other niche restaurants to explore; there's even an Italian gelato shop that we love to go to on occasion - almost forgot to mention the best bakery [whole grain loaf varieties] in the entire valley is right here, too [Colombian panaderias tend to make the sickly sweet, very white variety of bread; we have yet to see rye bread available anywhere else]
• 10-minute cab ride [$5] to the Zona Rosa of Poblado [Parque El Poblado, Parque Lleras]
Parque Envigado is a 10-minute walk away.

Where you’ll be

Medellin, Antioquia, Colombia

It is often described as 'muy pueblito', which means it's very village-like. You'll get a strong impression of what Colombia really is by staying here. During the 2-month long Christmas festive season, every home exterior is decorated in Christmas lights. It is very common to see 'sancocho' [a Colombian soup/stew] being cooked over a fire at nearly every intersection during this time.

On occasion, at any time of year, a cabalgata [people on horseback going on a pub crawl] will ride right by the apartment to the bar a couple of doors down from the building. You'll know it when you hear the clip-clopping of the horseshoes on the street pavement.

All homes are covered in lovely clay tile shingles. It's an aesthetically pleasing, authentically Colombian environment.
