About the property

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.

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.

Awesome and Breathtaking!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I like to first thank Hector for being a FANTASTIC HOST to start to finish. After contacting Hector, I was more than surprised on all the I gained before going to Colombia. I felt from the beginning a good vibe from an honest and a great person!!!! Hector arranged my arrival to the Apartment with a Taxi Driver waiting for me at the airport terminal at 1:00 AM with my name. When we arrived, we were stunned on the View and the beauty of Medellin from the Apartment Balcony. Everything described was right on target and place was very safe. Stores, restaurants, and ATM was a couple minutes walk. Our family of four two kids 10 and 12 enjoyed every moment of the time we were at the apartment. We met the nicest and helpful people in our surroundings with very little Spanish. We can honestly say, this place was "AWESOME" with Malls nearby. I would definitely still here again and strongly recommend. The best part of this experience was meeting Hector who just went ABOVE AND BEYOND and making the accommodation smooth! Internet was FAST. Thank you again for an experience we will never forget and being a "FRIEND".

Simply GREAT !

  • 5 of 5

I have to start saying that this is by far the best place anyone can expect for short (or long ?) term rental.

the apartment is immaculate, very spacious, modern and gorgeous the views are breathtaking from every window or the balcony. It was one of those rare cases that the pictures look good but the real thing was even better. The building is beautiful and very safe. Neighborhood could not be better you could walk around it and feel completely safe and it is close to everything in the city. I was a little concern about not having air conditioning because Medellin's weather was very warm the days we stay there, but, we just had to open the windows and the breeze makes it perfectly comfortable day and night.

We met Jacky, Hector's wife, who was really delightful and super helpful , she gave us a lot of very useful information about the city. Hector called us to make sure our stay at their place was as good as it gets.

We wished we could stayed longer but for sure we will go back to Medellin and stay there again.

Thanks Hector and Jacky for making our time in Medellin so special .

Our stay was nothing less than spectacular. The apartment was everything we had hoped for and more. The view from the balcony at night is what dreams are made of. Hector was a unbelievable host. He called us just to make sure everything was perfect for us. Most definitely will book this apartment again.

The location, building and apartment are Excellent, the views breathtaking and I couldn't stop taking pictures. Neighborhood is completely safe. I walked back and forward to El Tesoro (one of the nice and big shopping centers) at 7-9 at night and never felt unsafe. The communication with the owner was very professional, very responsive and helpful. Outstanding!!!!

Over the last four years I've rented six different luxury apartments in Medellin, ranging from 3br - 5br, and this one has been the best one! Upscale, well appointed, very clean, modern, safe, location, AND the service & support couldn't have been better. Hector & Jacky were wonderful the whole way through. They were always available and ready to assist. My wife & kids loved the bedrooms, and the exceptional views...from every room in the could be laying on the bed, or in the bathroom even, and still have a great view of the city. . We will definitely be back, and will highly recommend this beautiful apartment!

Medellin magic

  • 5 of 5

There isn't much else to say that hasn't already been said in the previous flattering reviews, which I find to be spot on. The apartment is located in the most upscale area of Medellin, and I felt completely safe at all times. It is convenient to numerous stores and restaurants, and extremely inexpensive taxis or Uber are options for traveling further afield.

The apartment is beautiful and has every modern convenience, and day or night the views are some of the most stunning I've ever seen. (Note: it might not be the best option for someone with a fear of heights!) Hector and Jacky bent over backwards to make sure that our check-in, visit, and check-out all went smoothly.

I have every intention of returning to Medellin for a visit in the next year or so, and look forward to returning to Hector and Jacky's terrific apartment.
