Overview

El Poblado Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2BR/2BA -Sleeps 4-5

This new modern apartment has all the comforts of home.Looking down at the world from this 24th floor mountain side apartment, this Colombian emerald has everything you could ask for either while on vacation or away on business. Located in El Poblado at the east edge of the city you are only 35 min. from the airport and few min. on foot from the beautiful mall El Tesoro, movie theaters, restaurants, bars and gyms. We put alot of thought into this 1200sqft luxury apartment. The master bedroom is huge 350 sqft with a California king bed and a large walk-in closet very rare for Colombia. Marble floors can be found in the living-room and hallways with wood floors in the bedrooms. A big elegant kitchen with granite counter top with all new appliances and amenities will help prepare a quick popcorn craving or a Thanksgiving dinner.So much to mention about this apartment its better to just let our pictures do the rest of the magic.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • smoking allowed
  • wheelchair accessible

About Hector Ortega

Myself and my wife are both from Medellin.I grew up in Miami almost all my life going back to the early 60s. I served 20 years in the US military and traveled to many countries around the world and had the pleasure of getting to know some great people and cultures,but I must say the people and country of Colombia has to be on the top of my list of people and places to get to know,because of this we are lucky and fortunate to call both the U.S.A and Colombia our home.

Hector Ortega purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Hector Ortega chose El Poblado

Its got to be the people. Colombians are some of most friendliest and hospitable people I have the pleasure of knowing.We also believe Colombia has great potential for our investment and as our future home.

What makes this apartment unique

The view and how quiet this unit can be there also a natural stream that runs next to the building.

Excellent apartment with fantastic owner

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to have chosen this apartment for our 2 week stay in Medellin. From the moment you walk in to an incredible view of the city, to the day you leave (sadly), the owner (Hector) is available to help with any detail. The master bedroom is huge and comfortable. The kitchen is great for a snack or a full meal. And sitting on the balcony for breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks is a reason to come to Medellin on its own. But we left the apartment every day for many great excursions both in the city and in the province. There is always a bus or a taxi practically right at the door. If you like walking a bit, you can get to great shopping, dining, etc. I'd recommend this spot for anyone going to the fantastic city.

Incredible!

  • 5 of 5

WOW!!!....where do I begin?? Forget about the unit for a second. Let me talk to you about the owners Hector and Jacky first. They are the kindest, most sincere and genuine people I have come across in a long time. They truly love their country and it shows whole heartedly. Inviting me with them on a day trip along with their close friends to visit El Penol and Guatape was truly something special to me that I won’t forget anytime soon. Any issues that I needed to have resolved, Hector, Jacky or Alejandro would not hesitate to help my buddy and me out during our stay…..these included cleaning of the unit - I highly recommend having Marjorie (cleaning lady) come to the unit each week for a clean-up as she does a fantastic job! Accessibility to tennis courts - Thanks Alejandro for helping me gain access to the tennis courts beside the condo with my limited Spanish, Gym facility – contact security and they will provide access to you right away.

Now on to the actual unit…the view from the balcony alone may be one of the most spectacular views in all of Medellin!......It’s simply breathtaking and you can literally just sit there for hours just being mesmerized by it all in a Zen like state. The unit is spacious with furnishings that are first class......I am in complete agreement with James L. comments about the unit. Since the apartment is situated on a higher elevation, the nights may be somewhat cooler and I would suggest bringing a couple of long sleeve shirts or use the fleece blankets that Hector and Jacky have available for use (Yes, they have thought of everything).

All in all we had a fantastic stay and thanks again Hector, Jacky and Alejandro for all your kind generosity and hospitality towards us.

Warmest Regards,

Raj & Walid

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for a week with 2 teenage kids, with 4 people there is plenty of space!

Breathtaking view which we enjoyed as often as we could, i still miss it every day.

If you have US dollars to exchange you can do that in the El Tesoro mall in a small shop which has an exchange office in the back (banks will not do it). The mall is at a walking distance with all you need including a supermarket, walking back is uphill so you might just want to take a taxi instead which will cost around 5000 pesos (less than $3).

Very quiet neighborhood at night, and a good mattress/pillows on the bed.

Taxi's are around plenty, no need to call them just cross the street and wave, they will stop and have meters to show you the amount to pay.

Very helpful landlord as well, if we ever return to Medellin this will be the place where we will stay for sure!

FIRST CLASS

  • 5 of 5

This is the place to stay ,from location to clean,to secure . Hector's place is one of the best if not the best places I have stayed in from 23 years of traveling. Talked with Hector after I left the deposit, great guy ,loves his country and is very helpful. Check in was a breeze with Alejandro ,speaks english,and was very tolerate and patient with my spanish. Apartments view and amenities were top rate and classy. well decorated and furnished with everything ,you could think of you need,from hair dryers to irons,to extra pillows ,well thought out rental. Hector you also have good taste in decorations ,but of course i know your wife has a lot of input and it shows . comfortable bed and sofa, and kitchen chairs, great to cook in,all pots and pans and utensils . secure staff very helpful and nice, but Colombia is a friendly country. Big market about a 7 minute walk, taxi's plentiful, also the market is located in a mall, so you can see a movie, eat.or shop. walking paths out the front door ,but with the view it's hard to leave from the bedroom, front room,kitchen and balcony amazing views,and very quiet at night to sleep . When i return , no question ,this is the only place I'll consider. Thanks Hector for allowing me the comforts of your home , you spoiled me .
