About Monica Luque-Suarez

We grew up in Medellin - Colombia, a city in the middle of mountains. We love Medellin, and hope you will love it too. Many americans are finding that the CITY OF ETERNAL SPRING has a lot to offer to tourists.

We are professionals currently working in New York City as licensed sales brokers with DOUGLAS ELLIMAN. We have 20 years of experience renting furnished apartments, and from the reviews you will see that we know what we are doing. Our guest become our friends all the time. We treat them with respect and professionalism and most important we want to share with you every bit of information about Medellin so you will have an amazing life-changing experience.

Monica Luque-Suarez purchased this condo in 2002

Why Monica Luque-Suarez chose El Poblado

Medellin has Spring, and Summer-like weather throughout the year. Normally is 68F degrees, and sunny.

It is amazing to go to the mountains to hike, to visit the small towns around the city, and to talk to the locals. They are very kind and will love your visit.

The city of Medellin is Colombia's second largest city and said to be one of the most beautiful cities in all of South America. There is plenty to do and see in this wonderful and vibrant city in Colombia.

The metropolitan area of Medellín is settled within the Aburrá Valley at an elevation of 1,538 meters and is bisected by the Medellin River which flows northward.

Because Medellin is located at 5,000 ft above sea level, its climate is not as hot as other cities located at the same latitude near the equator. And due to its altitude above sea level as well as a privileged location in the Andes Range, Medellin's weather is more characteristic of a humid subtropical climate rather than that of a tropical climate.

The city's average annual temperature is 22ºC (72ºF) and because of its proximity to the equator, its temperature is constant year round with minimal temperature variations. Temperatures range from 15ºC (52ºF) to 30ºC (86ºF).

What makes this condo unique

The apartment is in the best location and in the best neighborhood in Medellin - Across the street of Oviedo Mall, and the Sheraton Hotel.

This is our home, and we want to make your stay in Medellin, Colombia a very memorable experience.

If you are in Medellin to have a wild time, this wont be good for you, please go to a hotel. Thanks

Great for families!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here with my family and it worked out very well, four adults and two children. It was within walking distance to a couple of different malls, restaurants and a quick cab ride to the Metro. It's centrally located in a very nice area of Medellin. The apartment was very clean and had everything you would need during your stay. My family is from Colombia but it was my husbands first time there and it was in a great location for tourists.

Monica didn't always respond right away but I know we all live busy lives. She had a neighbor meet us with they keys and I was surprised that I had to pay the balance right then in cash. That was never mentioned and I assumed it would all be taken care of through PayPal like the deposit. The Wi-Fi was intermittent and for those of us from the U.S. who are used to warm/hot showers there wasn't much of it in this apartment.

It is hard to find a home away from home when traveling but this was very close! I would definitely stay here again.

Great place for a family

  • 5 of 5

This attractive 3 BR condo was perfect for our family of 5 adults. It was clean and comfortable. We appreciated having access to wifi, and the location near the Oviedo mall was very convenient. We loved the grocery store right across the street. Getting taxis (an inexpensive way to get around town) was a breeze because the Sheraton hotel is also right there. The mall had everything we needed: restaurants, banks, and a cambio (to exchange money). I look forward to staying here the next time we visit Medellin.

An earlier review noted a problem with the water heater. We had warm water for quick showers as long as we spaced them out morning and evening. (We made sure we turned the water heater off before leaving each day.)

Two tips: if you are a light sleeper, consider bringing a sleep mask and/or earplugs. (One BR overlooks the street, which means you can see lights and hear traffic. I'm an early riser, so it wasn't a problem, but others might want to be prepared.) Remember that this is not a hotel, so bring your own soap to use in the sinks/shower. (With the grocery story so close by, you can buy soap or whatever else you forget to pack.)

I would enthusiastically recommend this property to others. Monica answered all of our questions and we were very happy with the entire transaction.

For planning purposes, it's useful to know that the airport is about a 45-minute ride outside of town. The cost for a taxi was about $38.

Great price for location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed 4 nights at this apartment and we were 6 total. the location was great. It is not around parque lleras like many want but taxis are extremely cheap. the building is very residential. you have two great malls around the corner and bars to walk to. I would say the apartment is very convenient, was clean, and comfortable. we only had difficulties with the water heater. thank you Monica for opening your vacation home to us. we enjoyed it.

TEH BEST PLACE IN MEDELLIN

  • 5 of 5

THIS IS THE PERFECT PLACE IN MEDELLIN. IT IS IN THE BEST NEIGHBORHOOD AND LOCATION. EVERYTHING IN THE 2 BEDROOM CONDO WAS PERFECT. A LARGE GROCERY STORE IS RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET AND THE 2 BEST SHOPPING MALLS ARE A VERY SHORT WALK AWAY. EVERYONE ASSOCIATED WITH THE CONDO IS FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL FROM THE OWNERS TO THE SECURITY GAURDS AND STAFF. YOU WILL NOT FIND A BETTER PLACE.

Medellin home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at your home in Medellin. It was our first time in Medellin and staying at your home made us feel like it was home away from home. The photo's display an accurate account of the condo, as it is nicely decorated with modern furnishing. As a New Yorker, I felt very much like I was at home in a New York Condo, surrounded by the beauty of Medellin Columbia. The condo was very clean and neat and stocked with everything we needed. It was nice to have the hotel across the street for quick taxi service to great locations for dinner. We enjoyed having the shopping mall and grocery store nearby as well. We would recommend your home to our friends and family.

The owner was very helpful in answering questions and helping us feel knowledgeable about Columbia and our upcoming trip.

EXCELLENT!

  • 5 of 5

My father and I stayed here for one week while I was looking for a school to teach English at as a second language. Other than Medellin being GORGEOUS! This place was gorgeous too! Very clean and close to everything you could want! Food, shopping, schools, and amazing nightlife! Super safe to walk around during the day and at night. The security guards are also very helpful and always willing to call you a taxi and tell you where to go, and areas not to go! Amazing place! :)
