I was schooled in New Zealand, spent most of my life in Australia, 10 years in Shanghai- China, currently and for the next 8 years I will be here enjoying life in Medellin.

Digital safe's in most bedrooms.

The space

Eight bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 12 balcony's, pool table and bar, huge covered deck, 60" HDTV in lounge room, 40"-51" in most bedrooms.

Free secure covered parking.

Guests have access to all common areas throughout the penthouse as well as the privacy of their own rooms.

Very noteworthy is the beautiful breeze that makes it's way through the many open areas of the apartment keeping the temperature just about perfect at all hours (Medellin is known as "the city of eternal spring" and so A/C isn't something you need to worry about with spring like temperatures all year round).

The Laureles area is one of the most popular, very safe and relaxed and we are located only two short blocks from Calle 33 - arguably the 2nd or 3rd busiest bar and cafe area in Medellin along with Carrera 70 and Park Lleras being the busiest. Carrera 70 bars and cafes is only a 13 minute walk from our location and Park Lleras a USD $4 or $5 taxi ride away. There are many more modern restaurants and cafe's just a 7 minute walk to the Avenida Nutibara area. UPB University is an 11 min walk and is a popular place for people to take Spanish lessons. Unicentro mall and cinema is our nearest at 14 minutes walk, large grocery shop located less than 300 meters away. We are on major bus routes and Estadio metro station and sporting complex (12 swimming pools and stadium) is 25 mins walk or you can catch the Metro bus there for around .75 cents. All these facilities nearby but, rest easy, as your nights sleep will be quiet and peaceful.

- the main bus routes run just one block away from the apartment
- taxis in Medellin are very inexpensive with a 10 minute taxi ride sometimes costing no more than $2.00 U.S
- the metro system is amazing and has garnered international acclaim. the closest station is within 20 minutes walking distance

I typically prefer longer term tenants however stays as short as one week are currently being offered,

Interaction with guests

As much or as little interaction as you like, I live here so am around most of the time.

Other things to note

Free local phone calls to/from Medellin land lines. Great for meal deliveries.

Brian was away in China when I arrived. Paddy was looking after the place and was a great help. I really don't want to say too much as I don't want it to fill up, but really, it is in a nice neighbourhood. The place is spectacular. The rooms are comfortable. The other guests were great. On a couple occasions we had a Flamenco guitarist playing and then a violinist. The entertainment was wonderful :) Good restaurants nearby. Metro is nearby. Taxis are all over the place. I plan to return in a week for another two week stay.

A great place, better than expected. La 33 is great nightlife area a short walk away yet far enough that none of the noise spills over. Great social atmosphere at Brian's place.

Felt the rooms were very small and low quality, the beds and linens etc felt very worn, desk was good for a 6yr old but not a professional . If you've got a neighbor you'll hear everything + there was construction directly opposite my room which made for daily drilling etc. The upstairs communal area is pretty nice but.

Response from Brian:
Rooms are 20 SqM or 215 Sq feet. I get many compliments about the mattress quality. If any guest is unhappy about linen when I frequently ask them "how is everything in your room" please tell me what you would like me to change for you. That bedroom has desk 1 meter x 1/2 meter with below desktop shelf as well. I offered to change rooms for Aaron to one with more desk real estate but he never took me up on it. Minimal construction noise while he was here is my and other guests opinion. All bedrooms in the Penthouse were occupied during Aaron's stay and no one else had any noise complaint. Aaron moved from here to a brand new high rise with pool, gym etc and got an apartment for around 2.5 times the price so I guess it's all about how much money you want to spend.

The location is great, close to a stores, restaurants, and banks. The place is organized well, for instance, I had assigned shelf space in both the cupboards and refrigerator, a regular cleaning schedule and laundry service. This is an good place to be if you want to out of the touristy party of town.

Brian was not there during my stay but Paddy received me very well! I had a lot of fun with the people staying there. The place is awesome, just like the pictures, the neighborhood is plane and very walkable, in my opinion better to stay than El Poblado. I would come back for sure!

The penthouse is great for business travelers, excellent wifi connection in all the property, excellent privacy and quiet so you can work late if needed, and also with excellent common areas to relax and enjoy the city. The neighborhood is quiet and safe and stores are very close to do groceries. Brian was great, helpful and accessible at all times. I would definitely come back and recommend this property.
