I just stayed at 904 for 5 noches. Brief report:

1. Location: nice neighborhood - on the lower side of Ave Poblado. It IS a bit more walk to Oviedo compared to the Mansion. Also, I did not find convience store nearby for stuff like beers, etc, but the security guard can call a delivery service for you.

2. Security: good. The guards were helpful and did not have any probs with chicas. I did not feel that I had to tip them at all, though I did tip them if they did sometime specific (i.e. order beers) for me.

3. The apartment: From the 9th floor you can gaze at both of the hills. The patio has two chairs from which you can view down into the pool (there were some hotties hanging out there sometimes). I spent significant time at the balcony for smoking and gazing. This was the first place that chicas went to when coming to the apartment. The view from the bedroom wasn't so hot due to lack of exposure (you had to stick your neck out to see good stuff). The noise level was an issue there was construction going on above and every morning at 9AM I was woken by pounding construction noise. I was also woken at 2AM by some neighbor playing of all things, Coldplay. Bring your earplugs if you're a sensitive sleeper.

I wanted daily maid service - Andrew has it listed for $20/day which is the price for a whole day of maid service. I spoke with Andy and the maid, and the maid quoted me 15,000 pesos for 2 hours/day. I gave her 20k and she was happy - did a good job cleaning, laundry. I noticed no money/stuff missing.

The living room couch is nice. The TV is good but not plasma/lcd. The DVD is hooked up to a decent stereo system - so you can bring your CD's and play them through the audio system. (or music DVD's for that matter).

The kitchen was adequate. Single sink. Had utensils. NO COFFEE maker. NO simple pantry items such as salt/pepper/olive oil. Did, however, had wine glasses and cork opener. Had some nice Chilean wine (side trip: recommend Casillero Diablo Chardonnay 2006 - available in U.S. - outstanding).

There's a land phone from which you can call for taxis - you call a number for taxi (listed on the phone itself) and give them your phone number and they have the address already in their system. Very easy.

Also, cell phone rental provided free. and they just added a safe though I wasn't given instructions how to operate it so I ended up not using it.

Overall, a positive experience. Would do it again. Andrew checked in once to see how I was doing. His assistant called couple of times. I have not received my deposit back but it's only been two days.

Hope this helps

Dicks out

Thanks for the report and Welcome to poblado, just be glad you were not at street level. The crew across from the place I stayed at started hammering and digging at 5am each morning including saturday. I dont think you can really fault the landlord though. Aside from aesthetics, most of the buildings are poor construction vs 1st world standards. Of course they will have beautiful furniture and paintings, but then the windows will not shut and the walls are paper thin.. Anyhow what fun would a vacation be without a hard hat and earplugs !

Would you mind posting a map showing the location of your apts relative to some well known landmarks, e.g, Parque Lleras, Oviedo Mall, etc.? I'm sure that would help others as well as me.

Sounds like you've got a good business going. Buena suerte.

I have one for 1500 per month.Hey guys,

I'm still looking for a moderate price place. About 200/ week.

Got one offer. But have not seen the place yet. Please keep it reasonable! Not interested in 600/700 dollar a week places. AKA GRINGO PRICES! There are too many non american places that fit that criteria.

Just got back from 3rd Trip to Medellin. Still love it. Apt 904 at Torres del futuro was awesome! Best place so far. 100/ a night. Great location. Easy in and out. So I would recomend it again.

The Colombians all go to Cartagena for the Holy Week so it is packed. Prices for apartments go up about 50% and many of the girls are not around.

Review of this apartment:
http://www.internationalsexguide.info/forum/showpost.php?p=678524&postcount=3010

Rock Harders' comments: "-LODGINGS: I rented an apartment from a guy named Chuck I got into contact with via this forum. He goes by the handle Paysandu or something like that and has a posting in the "medellin apts for rent" thread. The apartment was not very large but highly adequate with 3 bedrooms and a fair deal at $500 USD a week. The apartment had a nice LCD tv mounted on the wall, wireless internet, a vonage line, and a washing machine. In addition, every bedroom had its own key and safe, a nice touch. Chuck, the guy who rented me the apartment is a solid, trustworthy guy from the USA who lives in Medellin fulltime and served as a very good guide who I would recommend to anybody. He has a car and drove me and my buddy around to various locales that we would not have gone to otherwise. The apartment is located on Avenida Poblado in the Castropolo In building in a solid location."

Rock Harders' comments: "-LODGINGS: I rented an apartment from a guy named Chuck I got into contact with via this forum. He goes by the handle Paysandu or something like that and has a posting in the "medellin apts for rent" thread. The apartment was not very large but highly adequate with 3 bedrooms and a fair deal at $500 USD a week. The apartment had a nice LCD tv mounted on the wall, wireless internet, a vonage line, and a washing machine. In addition, every bedroom had its own key and safe, a nice touch. Chuck, the guy who rented me the apartment is a solid, trustworthy guy from the USA who lives in Medellin fulltime and served as a very good guide who I would recommend to anybody. He has a car and drove me and my buddy around to various locales that we would not have gone to otherwise. The apartment is located on Avenida Poblado in the Castropolo In building in a solid location."

Hello everyone,

I will be in Medellin February 21 to 25, so I am looking for apartment for 4 days, I need 1 bedroom apartment since I am single, so I can have girls in my place without any disturb.

I like to have close to beach and actions. I don't speak spanish and this is first time in Colombia,

And what is best transportation between airport to Medellin?

Thanks guysThere is no beach in Medellín. And there is not much of an apartment short-term rental market here, either. Try a hotel.

The minibus runs from the airport to centro. It costs 5 or 6K. The last one leaves the airport at 8:00 pm.

For those that rent apartments, I wanted to know if any of you experienced problems getting your deposit back. I am considering an apartment stay, but I am worried that they might try to keep my $300 security deposit after staying there. Did everything work out with the companies you rented from? Which companies were they?

I just came back from Medellin. Before I went, a friend had directed me to http://www.lovemedellin.com for information.

Frankly, I really did not find that site all that exciting, it has potential but still needs a lot of work. But the guide advertised on that site, Alvaro, was great. He got me a furnished apartment in the best area in El Poblado for just $1, 100 USD for an entire month. He was also great with supplying me with the hottest chicks on a daily basis at 50, 000 COP an hour (4 hours for 200, 000 COP). That is $25 an hour for girls that are 9's and 10's.

Hope this help.

I just came back from a 4 day/3 night trip in Medellin. I rented the San Marcos Penthouse #2303 (2 bed in El Poblado) thru Albert at VIP. I have also seen it listed on the First American Realty website. Well, here is my review:

I arranged transportation thru Albert, got picked up at the airport by our driver. It was about a 45 minute ride into MDE. The area that the apartment is located in is very nice, with a gate. Security was excellent, they always called us whenever we had a guest or taxi waiting for us downstairs.

As for the apartment, it is exactly like it is in the pictures. However, couple of things I would like to mention. The bathroom downstairs was broken, so I had to use the one on the second floor. The place was pretty dirty, but when we arrived, there was a cute housekeeper that was cleaning the place. We left for about 2 hours, and when we came back, it was clean.

The views were spectacular, especially at night. The apartment is perched on one of the higher points. However, this made it pretty difficult for some taxi drivers to find, even though the street is located right across from the Intercontinental Hotel.

Anyway, aside from the bathroom and cleanliness issue, everything was exactly as described. The other thing that was a problem was that I tried to reach the VIP Hotel and Albert, but he was busy with some guests outside the city (El Gutape I think). However, when he was in MDE, it was very easy to reach him on the phone. ALbert was also very helpful on our first day, explaining to us how to get back home and such.

We stopped by the VIP hotel to pay our bill, and that place looked pretty nice. The receptionist was pretty hot, never got her name. All in all, I highly recommend Albert if you are planning to go to MDE for the first time. For newbies, I would also suggest staying at his hotel, because finding TLN's was a little bit more difficult than I expected.

I stayed in this exact penthouse, and it is pretty good. Everything is exactly described. However, I'd like to point out that it is not walking distance to restuarants, etc.

The only restaurant nearby is Hatoviejo (food was great) and a fruit/drink shop down the street. The only other restaurants that I can remember being close by were San Carbon and Palmihia, but that's still a good 20-30 minute walk (and remember, walking back would be quite a hike, maybe 45 minutes from the clubs down the street).

Sorry, didn't mean to criticize you, just wanted to give others correct information.

Large hotels owned by Colombians can be a pain in the ass. On the other hand, a private apartment can be somewhat isolated.

at client 9:

i've just come back home from a 14 day trip to medellin.

i stayed at the medellin executive hotel for the whole time in town and i have to say, it's downright perfect for anybody, who appreciates a private atmosphere to relax instead of living in a frat house or eaven worse.

the owner is a perfect host to all guests that want to experience the real medellin instead of making as many *****houses a week as possible.

if you are not the typical gringo putero seeking 10$ *****s you will definitely have a great time at the medellin executive hotel.

things you can expect while you stay at the medellin executive hotel:

- a private and very comfortable atmosphere, you're actually welcome and not just there for the host's profit.

- access to fase ii without paying the entrance fee and with this certain executive feeling to be honestly welcome in that club.

- access to privatly owned places to seek for really nice working girls without any ripp-off or waking up with itchy balls or worse.

- a host that gives his best to let you have a good time while you are in medellin.

- a host that shows you all the interesting nightlife in medellin without being target to the bad boys.

- a host that is not greedy on other competitors.

- a host that won't let you get in a fight with another guest over a working girl.

- a host that will definitely beat the shit out of you if you bring **** girls to the hotel.

- meeting and making new friends if you're interested in the real people of medellin.

well, that's about it. i've traveled a 19 hour trip from europe to medellin just on the impression that i got from the website of the medellin executive hotel. it is relievingly descent without a bunch of porn pictures that are not worth the promise. i will definitely stay at the medellin executive hotel when i'm back next year for at least 7-8 weeks and i already know for sure that it's going to be a great time again!

now, read between the lines, and you'll know the difference!

Barracuda666,

Thanks for your positive feedback about MedellinExecutiveHotel.com, and I appreciate your detailed assessment of the general environment there.

It's also clear that you have a less-than-positive opinion of a particular Australian-owned mansion. That's fine. This is not the first time I have heard negative feedback about that location and its owner, and it won't be the last time either. However, there are also guys that love the Mansion and think highly of its owner.

Personally, I have no opinion because I have never stayed at the Mansion. Although I have seen the Australian owner around Medellin, I have never spoken to Greg.

Staying at the Mansion does not interest me for a simple reason. I often date non-pros and, therefore, the environment at the Mansion does not meet my needs. Furthermore, Medellin is the easiest place in Colombia to meet a wingman. Therefore, my opinion of the Mansion is neutral because I have never stayed there and I have never spoken to the owner.

However, it is worthwhile to mention that everybody knows Greg is the owner of the Mansion. There's no secrecy.

Barracuda666, who owns Medellin Executive Hotel?

Urbanwildlife and Client 9:

Thanks for your appreciation! I just want to let the guys know, that there actually is a very good alternative to stay in Medellin.

The Medellin Executive Hotel is run by John, a Sicilian-American guy.

If you need a descent place to stay and you want to be with your non-pro girlfriend without being bothered by anybody else then the Medellin Executive Hotel will fit your needs to a 100%. There will be no stupid behaviour of other guests when you have a swim in the pool with your girl. You will be left alone with her if you want to. John will always take care of your safety if the girl turns out to be a criminal etc. If you choose to stay in the Medellin Executive Hotel you will love it and come again! I will return to Medellin next year in Juli/August and I will stay again in the Medellin Executive Hotel.

ALL the amenities. The elaborate pool area, TV / Social Area situated on an outside covered large open area is awesome. The rooms are very nice.

Just my opinion.

It is obvious that you are saying things that are not true I am very well respected person in this community I do not understand why people have to bash other people trying to obtain bussines.

Lets use this board for positve things.

I have neves said I was the owner of the executive as a favor to him I helped him in the begging by marketing his place and this is how he wants to thank me.

I hope the best for everybody who has hotels or other ventures here.

I can only speak for my self I am a hard worker who has a very nice 5 bedroom hotel and manage 5 other furnished apartments, rental cars, realestate and construction

Bullet proof car yes I do have one and its one of my best rentals here.

And bodyguard I do not have one I have Camilo which to those of you who know he is the person that does my airport pick up in a larger vehicle that makes everybody feel safer and some clients like to be picked up in the bullet proof vehicle and he also helps me run errands and everything that I have to do.

Again I would like to incentive people to just be nice and not hindered other people why can't we just all be nice and help each other.

The LIVE LIKE A KING Penthouse. It’s a 5th floor penthouse apartment on the north side of Parke Lleares. From the Portarias ready to help with everything from a taxi to late night domicilio grub or most importantly the apartment itself where not a stone has been left unturned this place rocks, It has two bedrooms with great beds and linens, three baths, a fully equipped kitchen, washer/dryer combo, swank living room and baloneys off the living area as well as both bedrooms. Executive desk with computer and great Internet service. The owner and his assistant are at the ready to help with anything you could possibly need. All this for a very moderate price. Check out their website for rates, etc. This may read like an ad but I can assure you its for real and my motivation for promoting it is to show support for someone that has made my stays in Medellin excellent.

This owner was suddenly called back to the US for 3 months and wants to rent his apartment while he is gone from Sept. 17th to Dec. 31st. It is a 2 Bedroom (third Bedroom is a large office), fully furnished, king sized bed in Master, Queen in guest room, 2 1/2 baths, TV's in Master and LR, Internet access, local calls and more. Rental rates include once per week maid service and all utilities. The complex (conveniently located right next door to El Castillo and the MM is right down the hill), is very close to Oviedo, retaurants, casinos and shopping.

What a great, inepensive way to plan an extended stay or have a place while you look for longer term accommodations or a place to buy.

It is nothing fancy. It is a guys apartment. Has an extra long sofa to accommodate a tall person but it is clean, quiet and has easy access to most anywhere you will need to go in Meellin.

Wt69,

You are better off renting an apartment in Poblado, it will be around the same price and much more convenient and there will be no issues with safety. Taxis are dirt cheap in Medellin, now even more so with the dollar gaining over 25% in value over the past few months, so going wherever you need to go is a non-issue cost wise. I have a great taxi contact that can drive you around all night or for a couple of hours, send me a PM and I'll get you the phone numbers, etc.

Suerte,

Home Invasions Warning.

I hate to post negative stuff here but I feel I should in this case. My warning is actually what should be common sense for most.

It is intended primarily for people in Medellin who rent out rooms in their apartments to foreigners, particularly to older ,naive gringos who are here looking to meet women on the internet. DO NOT RENT TO THESE PEOPLE!

I recently rented out a room in my apartment in Medellin to a man in his 50's who was quite honestly very very gringo looking. Tall, skinny, very light skinned, ect.
That alone can make you a target.

Well I told this man the rules, no strangers in the house. period. No hookers or anybody else he has not known for some time. And no matter what, don't use or give out my addresss to anyone.

I came to find out he was one of those men who look for women on websites like colombian cupid and others like it. I told him be careful, if you meet anybody do it in a safe place, and don't let them take you anywhere that you don't know.

Honestly, a man his age, he should already know this.

So he was here for about a week and one night he had a woman over. After she left he told me he met her on the internet.

I should have kicked him out that very minute, but I only warned him again not to do that. F-ing idiot.

Any, without writing too much of the horrible details this is what happened.

Saturday afternoon he (stupid gringo) enters my apartment with 3 men and a woman at gunpoint.

The first thing I know is I have a giant revolver in my face and for the next hour and a half I,m tied up hands and feet on my bathroom floor with a gun to my head while they ransack my home, steal alll my money, my debit cards and other stuff too.

The ladrones were not professionals, they were very nervous and agitated.

I THOUGHT FOR SURE THEY WERE GONNA SHOOT OR STAB ME AT ANY MINUTE.

During this ordeal the guy renting a room in my apartment told me they must have followed him to the apartment.

Long story short, the ladrones left, didn't kill us, I freed myself and called the police. At some point later I found my old nokia cel phone under my bed. That was when this dumbass said to me " Can I borrow your phone?: Some woman is supposed to meet me here in a taxi and I have to tell her not to come"

Bingo! Wow!

Thats when I realized. He was giving out my address to women he met on colombian cupid or some other bullshit website.

It was a total setup, thats why the thieves had a woman with them. They knew where he lived, what he looked like, and he probably told the woman where he was and when he'd be home. So they waited for him. How stupid can someone be?

I am posting this letter because I almost died, I was robbed of all my money and went through a terrifying ordeal.

I want to warn anybody renting rooms to foreigners to please make sure they are not using these websites, and for those of you who are using these sites, be aware there are women hunting for gringos to set up for home invasions like these.

Thank you

Hey guys,

I will be in Medellin december 4th. I will be staying in a Hotel in Parque Lleras. However, tha place that i stay at allows only 1 gust to stay per night. Since my first night i plan to party with at least 2 or 3 girls, can anyone recommend a motel near the area? Would love to see one of those that have jacuzzi, disco lights adult channels and maybe a indoor pool. Someone mentioned to go to the La Estrella sector but I am being told that area is about 30 min from Lleras. Any options you can addvise?

Hi guys,

Yes guys, I'm retiring from Hardcore Monguering! "Too much Screwing and Partying going on out there! " After a year of 2-3 girls a night ($12US for each girls company), 2-3 times a week, just too much of a good thing, is still too much! I have a lot of regular girlfriends now and can't keep up! I might open another Place in Laureles for guys who want to date regular girls and mix it up with a little monguering, and in leave La Mayorista for some Hardcore Monguers, like I used to be!

The $60kUS includes the whole "kitten Kabootle"! 100% ownership, Furniture, TV's, Stereo System, DVD Player, Microwave, "safes" in all the rooms, etc. For pics. Of My Place and more info. You can contact me at frankmongeatnetzero.com or PM me with your email! Hope one of you "lucky guys" can enjoy it as much as I have!

a friend of mine found this on craigslist and he stayed there for 6 days. i stopped by twice and hung here for a while. i will be checking in for a few days as well, but i would like to share what i took off of cl. i have since been up there to eat about 4 times at different restaurants.

his e mail

gillettij@yahoo.com

"we have available a 2300 square foot penthouse apartment to share with americans and or other vacationing guys from around the globe.

we charge fifty dollars per night which will include maid service and daily breakfast. there are five bedrooms in total and each has it's own private bath. there will be internet and cable, and a phone to make free calls to the u.s. the price can be negotiable depending on the length of stay and how many there are in your party. under two weeks it is the daily rate; so one week is 350, and two weeks is 700.

the apartment is located in an upscale and quiet part of the city known as laureles. laureles is what we know as laurels as in the type of tree that is everywhere in this part of the city. everything that you would need is within walking distance of the apartment including various restaurants with a variety of choices in the type of cuisine desired.

it is a very interesting part of the city and it is a neighborhood type of an area where you can immerse yourself in the colombian culture should you so desire. also, laureles is very centralized, so taxi travel will usually be a little less due to the fact that you are already in the center of the city of medellin.


here in laureles, you are able bring your dates back to the apartment with no problem whatsoever. the individual rooms offer good privacy, have locking doors,and have new mattresses.

laureles is a very laid back area where everything that you could possibly want is within walking distance including discotecas, a shopping mall, and over 100 restaurants.

what is included: daily maid service to make your bed and clean your room,
breakfast, a local phone, the international phone, high speed wireless internet, guide service, help with your necessities, etc, etc

also available is an english speaking driver to pick you up at the airport. "

Overpriced Gringo apartments,Ok perhaps. My main concern was that it is a legit operation. Its my first time so if I pay a bit more this time its not a big deal. When I come back and know my way around then I can be more frugal.

Based on my limited searching it did not appear that the cheaper ones had digital safes or 24 hr security. There is a difference between price and value. If something is 50% less but has no 24 hr security and no digital safe then I don't consider that a good deal.

Any feedback on people using this site and that it is a legit operation would be helpful.

ThanksI rented from them 2 times when I first started going to MDE, they run a LEGIT business. EVERY SINGLE apartment complex in MDE will have a security guard or portero AND if if they are renting it out to people 9 times out if ten they will have a digital safe. Once you get there, lok around and talk to the owners for better deals in the future.

P.S. Also when you rent from these people ask them if there are NOISE ISSUES, NOT from other neighbors but if YOU yourself are accustomed to making noise.

Bartonsky,

I had a good experience with them. They are very hands-off (almost too much). I only saw one of the guys from the company once.-- to pay them the balance. However, you will be pretty much on your own as far as mongering is concerned. Renting from them is a good option if you know your way around and already have some contacts on getting chicas. Although I never asked them specifically, I doubt they will help you meet chicas like the managers at the Mansion, El Castillo or Executive Medellin Hotel (formerly VIP) would. If you have a trusted wingman, the 2BR apartments seem like a very good deal.

I've stayed with him as well in one of the best apartments he rents. You can trust him. The apartments are very good and close to everything you need.

Yes, there are cheaper places but for the value, location, the big plus of dealing with someone who is a native English speaker and it being your first trip to Medellin, doing business with Andy is a good choice. Now you can relax, practice your Spanish and keep reading about Medellin.

I spent a lot of time shopping and eating in Centro (basically downtown) I always felt safe.

You can always take a taxi and go almost any place in the city for a few thousand pesos. If you are on a budget. I would recommend staying at Frank's place rather then wasting money at overpriced hotel Porblado. But, that is my choice and others may disagree.

If you are on a budget, there are also a few hostels in Porblado where you can get a private room for about 55 Mil to 65 Mil per night COP. If you elect to have a guest, most hostels in Porblado will charge about 10 Mil per night for the guest.

I just got back from 10 days in Medellin. I spent a lot of time shopping and eating in Centro (basically downtown) I always felt safe. There are very few natives that feel safe in el Centro and that includes those who live and work there. The area along Avenida Junin from Parque Bolivar to Exito is relatively safe until midnight or so. It is better to leave the rest of el Centro by 8:00 pm. Some parts are not very safe even during the day. Do you know where those parts are?

the location


the apartment is in a building called san pedro de alcantara, which is one block from the well known hotel park 10 in a very quiet and safe neighborhood. in 5 minutes, you can walk to nice restaurants, in 10 min. you’re at the bodytech gym and the pomona supermarket, which is open 24 hours on fridays and saturdays. in 10 min. you can also walk to parque lleras, which is where all the action is (restaurants, clubs, discotheques). there is a beautiful river and a small, beautiful lush tropical forest with palm trees, banana trees and bamboo right next to the building.

the building has security 24/7 and is visitor-friendly, which is not the case for all apartment buildings in poblado. the building is sometimes referred to as the “gringo tower”, since many expats decided to buy or rent an apartment in this building. it’s one of the best locations in medellin.

the apartment


the apartment is on the 5th floor, and has views at the river which goes by the building and some partial views of poblado and tesoro. in this building there are only two apartments on each floor, so you don’t have many neighbors (important for parties!). the apartment has 1,900 sqft (175 m^2), 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. there is also a maids quarter with an additional, simple bath. i therefore can accommodate up to 3 parties, since i wouldn’t mind staying in the maids quarter for a couple of nights. the living room is very big, ideal for parties. there are two huge balconies. the apartment has high-speed wireless internet access (wifi). there is a fully equipped kitchen with microwave. the apartment has a washer and dryer (rare!).

the rooms


each bedroom has its own, private bath and walk-in closet. each bath is spacious, with a large shower. the two smaller bedrooms have their own, big private balcony. each of the smaller bedrooms has 151 sqft (14 m^2) and measures about 3.5 m x 4 m (without bathroom, walk-in closet and balcony). from the smaller bedrooms, you have a relatively unobstructed view into the neighborhood. nobody is looking into your room. all bedrooms and the living rooms have blinds for privacy. each bedroom has a little desk and a chair for a laptop. each bedroom has a tv and an electronic safe.

extras


i know lots of regular girls and professionals. i know the high-end and the low end (mayorista, casas, centro, streetgirls…) of p4p in medellin and i can show you around. i speak spanish fluently.

the rates


the rate depends on your length of stay and includes all utilities:
1 – 7 nights: $60/night/bedroom
8 – 14 nights: $50/night/bedroom
more than 14 nights: $45/night/bedroom

What expenses are U talking about here. Please explain in detail and tell me which area r you located?Hi Player,

Sorry guy, I was in Tampa, FL, just got back! Well most of the time, if it's my going out day and guys just want to tag along, than we each just pay our way! Sometimes guys are generous with drinks and stuff, since I translate for them or use my car, etc. ! If I take some of my friends (girls), I don't charge introduction fees, than they have to pick up taxi fairs for the girls and divide the tab ammongst themselves, I mean the guys I'm Winging! If it's just one guy, I'll pick-up 25% of the tab!

Anytime I'm taking special time out from my schedule to wing somebody, then at least my expenses have to be covered, transp. , entrace fees, etc. ! I'll drink water, don't need to drink much, but if somebody wants me to drink with them on my off day, or if they want me to take them to an expensive place like Fase ll, where I would normally not go, then of course they have to pick up the tab! Now, if feel like partying one day and they want to accompany me, then we just split the cost! If You can somehow get your e-mail to me, you'll automatically receive the info. About My Place! My Place is located in La Mayorista, it's a 3 Stratus, El Centro being a 1-2 Stratus vs. El Poblado being a Stratus 5-6!

Hello to anyone considering an apartment rental in Medellin!

I have a very good friend staying at Franks "My Place", and this experienced monger who has traveled the world over has been treated like a King by Frank during his stay in Medellin. His apartment is very large, furnished very nicely, secure, and immaculately clean, and Frank has been there to give him tours of the city, take him shopping, introduced him to many non-pros, taken him to many non-pro clubs, as well as the p4p clubs and casas. He has been there for every need my friend has had, making his experience at My Place, and Medellin, a memorable experience for him, going way beyond what would have been expected of him. To this I say thank you Frank for taking such good care of my friend, and I hope all others who are going to be looking for lodging in Medellin, will provide Frank there business, as there is no one that provides the quality of service that he does!. Lastly, the cost of the rental is under $50.00 dollars a night, and this includes all the services that my friend has been provided!

Guys, it is a no brainer when it comes to booking your accomodations in Medellin, and that is at Frank Casio's "My Place".

Hi Guys,

I have read the forum. Just looking for some feedback. I'ver narrowed it down to 4 Points, Hotel Dann Carlton or Park 10, I'd consider Hotel Florida but is seems a little far. But then again I know nothing about this city. Can someone give me feedback on the best of these to stay for my first time in Colombia?

I'm traveling solo, plan on meeting girls and taking them back to the room, so girl friendly is important. Also, somewhere I could meet fellow travelers would be good. I would consider an apartment as well, but it seems a bit complicated for my first time there. Thoughts?

Thanks, and please don't tell me to RTFF, I've done that but can't find a whole lot for recommendations.

I'll be there April 11 until the 15, if anyone's around, drop me a line, I'd like to hook up with a fellow punter or two.

I know you are only requesting information on the properties above, but being your first time visiting Medellin, I would recommend you read my post below about Frank Casios "My Place" and consider staying there initially, so Frank can familiarize you with where things are, places to go, and introduce you to many of his non hoeing friends. Once you get this knowledge, than you can move on to one of the places you mentioned above. This will also give you an opportunity to check out the properties you are interested in first hand. Just a thought I wanted to share with you. Good luck and have fun! :)

why pay more for a hotel room if you can have the privacy and flexibility of an apartment for less money?

the location

the apartment is in one of the tallest buildings in medellin and is located one block from the well known hotel park 10 in a very quiet and safe neighborhood.

in 5 minutes, you can walk to nice restaurants, in 10 min. you're at the bodytech gym and the pomona supermarket, which is open 24 hours on fridays and saturdays. in 10 min. you can also walk to parque lleras (zona rosa), which is where all the action is (restaurants, clubs, discotheques).

there is a beautiful river and a small, beautiful lush tropical forest with palm trees, banana trees and bamboo right next to the building.

the building has security 24/7 and is visitor-friendly, which is not the case for all apartment buildings in poblado. it's one of the best locations in medellin.

the apartment
the apartment is on 23rd floor, and has sweeping, unobstructed views of poblado and almost entire medellin from literally every window.

in this building there are only two apartments on each floor, so you don't have many neighbors (important for parties!).

the apartment has 1,700 sqft (155 m^2), 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. there is also a maids quarter with an additional, simple bath. the living room is very big, ideal for parties.

the apartment has high-speed wireless internet access (wifi, speed:4 mb download, 1 mb upload, which is the highest speed available in colombia. most apartments only have 1 mb download). there is a fully equipped kitchen with microwave. the apartment has a washer and dryer (rare!).

the rooms

there are three bedroms: the master bedroom, the 1st and the 2nd bedroom. each bedroom has its own, private bath with shower, sink and toilet and walk-in closet. each of the smaller bedrooms has 130 sqft (12 m^2) and measures about 3 m x 4 m (without bathroom or walk-in closet). the 1st and 2nd bedroom each have a queen size bed. from every window you have stunning views of the medellin and the surrounding mountains. nobody is looking into your room. each bedroom has cable tv and an electronic safe. the master bedroom is huge and measures 7.5 m x 5 m (37.5 m^2, 400 sqft) and has a king size bed and a table with 4 chairs.

the rates
the rate depends on your length of stay and includes all utilities:


1 - 7 nights: $50/night/bedroom
8 - 14 nights: $45/night/bedroom
more than 14 nights: $40/night/bedroom


to rent the entire apartment, please inquire.

The My Place Satellite apartment:

The name My Place Satellite, and not My Place II, comes from the fact that Frank has one room in this apartment, rather than the whole apartment like in the original My Place.

It's located on Calle 33, in the Conquistadore area, and for you guys that always go by taxi, it's really close to all centro action, as well as Fase Dos and other famous places just 5-7 minutes distance by taxi from the apartment.

Just like My Place, this apartment is situated on the third floor and consists of three bedrooms, a kitchen, a livingroom, a balcony and a bathroom. The room Frank is offering comes with a new doublebed, a tv, free wifi internet and 2 big wardrobes. The big difference of My Place and this My Place satellite is that at this point (2009-04), there is no hotwater aviable in the shower, and there is no fridge in the kitchen. Frank is currently in discussions with the lady that owns the apartment about installing a electric hotwaterdevice in the shower, as well as making arrangements to store cold beers/waters/other things in the kitchen. To see current status on these matters, please contact Frank directly.

The other two rooms in the apartment are rented by two Colombians, wich I only met one of them, a Colombian Englishteacher. This guy was in his 30's and seems like "a good guy". He did stay with us when we went to some non pro clubs, and also followed us to the casa on the second floor of the house where we had some afterhour beers and chatted with the ladies offering their services.

The My Place Satellite surroundings:

If the Mayorista apartment is located in a workingclass area, this area has more of a middleclass feeling to it. The people, the cars and the houses are a bit more upscale, and the same goes for the supermarkets and restaurants in the neighbourhood. Regarding non pro girls you have some normal clubs just 100 meters down the road towards the citycenter, and for the pro girls you have Luna-Luneras on the same distance. Not to forget the casa just under the apartment – you are actually just steps away from a casa with 4-8 girls avaiable every night.

Security:

The big issue in this area must be the Calle 33 traffic, that daytime can be quite intense. There are bridges really close by the apartment, to take you walking over Calle 33, but when you are drunk and "know it all" it's easy to take a chance and cross this heavily trafficed road directly, instead of using the bridges. I write this just to let you know that the traffic can be heavy, and potentially dangerous if you don't keep an eye on the traffic.

Food/drinking:

I didn't eat in this area, but there are several restautants/snackbars in the surroundings. It looks nice, so I can't really comment further on that, at this point. To be continued.

Pro-girls:

Apart from the mentioned casa on the second floor, and Luna-Luneras that is open 24/7, I think you have to go to the centro if you want a bigger selection of girls. For non pro's, just hit the bars nearby.

Conclusion: My Place Satellit might appeal to those of you guys that want to be closer to El centro, or are hunting for non pro's as you most unlikely will take your non pro girl back home, just to find that your other room mates are phucking h**kers in their rooms.. Maybe not the best start of your evening. In this apartment it's more quiet, as you are the only gringo guest, and therefore maybe a better option for those who are looking for a bit more private and "serious" option when it comes to bedding non-pro's.

I just returned from my first trip to Medellin, where I did choose to stay in Franks apartment called "My Place" in the Mayorista area of Medellin. I stayed for a week and also did visit the My Place satellite in the Conquistadores area, as well as Franks private apartment. This review is written in 3 parts, where I will describe My Place, My Place Satellite and Frank Casino himself. (the Frank Casino Review can be found in the Medellin reports section)

The My Place apartment:

The My Place apartment is an apartment on the 3rd floor on Calle 85 in the Mayorista area of Medellin. It has three bedrooms, one livingroom, a kitchen, a bathroom and a balcony.

The bedrooms are in the size 10-12 square meters, two rooms have a double bed and contain dual layers of madresses, to save your knees from your late night adventures. The last room contains two single beds, that can be put together to work as a big double bed. Every room has a induvidual doorlooker, as well as a personal roomsafe that requires no key, but you choose your personal pincode, and then just use your code to open the safe. I personaly prefer this type of safe as nobody can steal your key and open the safe. (The "key" is a numbercombination in your mind.)

All rooms are equipped with a TV and around 50 channels of international and national channels. One room also has a dvd player, and a small library of pornomovies, put there by Frank, if case you would need some extra inspiration when you are doing your thing with the girls.

The kitchen has a normal gasstove, a fridge and the usual stuff (knifes, forks, plates ect.)

The livingroom is equipped with sofas, dinnertable and chairs. It's big enough to hold a party for 6-8 persons with no problems. There's also a stereo in the livingroom where you can listen to radio/play cd music/mp3 or just plug in your ipod/laptop and play music straight from your personal library.

The bathroom is equipped with a hotwatershower and a toilet that can flush paper. It's also a long shelf below the bathroom mirror where you can spread your personal stuff, which come's in handy if you are a couple of guys (or girls! ) living there.

The balcony is quite small, but has big panoramic windows from the livingroom, so it's still nice to open it up and let the air/sounds from the street below into the apartment once in a while.

The My Place surroundings.

Franks apartment is located at the end of Calle 85 in the Mayorista area. The Mayorista area is separated from the Poblado area/ Poblado metrostation by one stop (Aguacatala) and then you reach Ayura, the metro station of La Mayorista. The trip will take less that 5 minutes, and if you choose to go by a taxi, it will take you 5-8 minutes depending on traffic (rushhour/nighttime) to reach the area, and cost you 5-6k pesos.

As the apartment is located close to a streetcorner, you have two options when you are stepping out and into the street: Take left and 5 meters ahead you will find yourself on a "normal" street, with internetcafe's, restaurants and all kind of everyday business activities. If you take right, you just have to walk 10 meters to run into the opening of the first girlbar, and another 20 meter ahead starts the little strip where you can find girls 24/7 – Seven days a week. It's quite a surreal feeling, to step out of the apartment at sunny 9am in the morning, to buy breakfast, and finding girls in high heels and (to) small skirts offer you services for 25k pesos, that are not to be found on the restaurants breakfast menu

If you continue ahead of the girls you reach a shoppingarea including 5 supermarkets, 4 or 5 banks (with atm's) and alot of small restaurants, pharmacies and other small shops in the area.

Continue further ahead and you reach the metro station that will take you to centro within 15 minutes. The cost for a one way ticket is 1500 pesos. Not bad at all. The metro runs unti 11 pm. But there are always taxis 24/7 in the area, so getting to your favorite spot in town will in most cases cost you between 5 and 10k pesos.

Security.

Before I arrived I had some worries about staying in the area (as some members on this site claim that the area is dangerous). Now, I have only stayed there for one week, so that dosn't make me a professor on dangers/safety in Medellin, but I will give you my 5 cents of input:

I'm not a big, strong guy, just the "normal guy next door". I like to dress nice, with chinos or nice designer jeans and in most cases, a good quality italian shirt on top. I'm also blonde, have blue eyes and white skin, so people will have no problems spotting me in Colombia. Anyway, I never experienced any problem staying in the mayorista area. (I had a problem in El Centro, but that story you can read about under the Frank Casino Report)

I actually did not see any other gringo during my week in Mayorista, and I didn't even see one fight or one loud argumet in the area for my whole stay. Another important point is that I don't push my luck. That meaning I don't wear any flashy watches or bling-bling stuff that could draw unwanted attention to me, and I always try to be nice and behave well wherever I go. It's about respect towards other people, no matter where they happens to be on the social ladder.

Food/drinking:

My stomach can sometimes be sensitive, but I ate and drank everyday in the area, sampling most restaurants and bars close to the apartment – and I never got a bad stomach from what I ate/drank.

The prices are modest, and you can get a full meal, non alcoholic drink included, for the same price as you pay for a single beer at Mr cocktail (8k pesos).

Pro girls:

The local pro-girls I don't' know nothing about, as I'm into non pro girls, but from Frank's latest reports it seems the mayoristagirls can be quite a fun party if you give them a try. (post #1885, Medellin reports)

Conclusion:

Would I recommend My place to other travellers? Yes, I would. If money don't matter to you, then you could stay in a boutique hotel instead, where you have 24h roomservice, jaccucci, golden knobs on you waredrobes and that kind of stuff, but if you have any kind of budget, and want to experience a gringo free area, where prices are low and you still feel like you are in Colombia, feel free to give the area a try.

And finally, even that I don't have any stakes in any corner, don't just take my words for it – Only belive what you see and experience. So next time you are in Medellin, take a taxi to the area, step out and have a couple of beers and something to eat. You might just enjoy the party. And if you need somewhere to stay, Frank Casino's "My Place" is always nearby.

Happy hunting / Ken Apples

Hi guys,

Just want to clear up a few points! My Place Satellite is a Test to see if it's a viable location for My Place ll! So far it's doing real well! It's location on Clle. 33-Rosales area is attracting a flood of attention and reservtns. I began discussions with owner about a possible purchase, if price is right!

Having Wireless access has made it attractive to some folks, although internet access is very cheap in Medellin (less than $1US an hour)! With respect to the hot water, since the location is closer to "El Centro", the temp. Of the water is warm compared to Envigado, where I live! Still working with Teresa on the issue! If I purchase the place that will no longer be a factor! Solved the "frige & beer" issue by putting a portable "Cooler" which can be filled with ice for less than $1US!

Also, I convinced Teresa to reduce her beer and drink prices for "gringos" to $4, 000cop and $5000cop while partying at "Casa Los Angeles" on the second floor! She used to charge $7, 000cop as it is a "grave yard shift Casa" (10-6:00AM) and because of the area, Clle. 33! Please PM me with email for more info. And pics. !

Yes guys.

The test is going well so far, and I'm in the process of negotiating the purchase of My Place ll in Clle. 33! You'll have another location, also near the center of the action (El Centro, Las Casas, Fase ll, San Diego, Luna Lunera, Casa Los Angeles, "Carboncitos" Disco, "Babylon" Disco, etc, etc.) and with the same Good-N-Cheap services which My Place offers!

My Place Satellite (forgot to mention before) is a 3-4 minute walk from the famous and beautiful "Unicentro" Mall! You will feel right at home after visiting this beautiful upscale Mall with gorgeous Colombian women walking all over the place! I'm really excited about providing my fellow Monguers a service which allows you to save over $50US ($100, 000cop +), "every single night", for more Mundane stuff, like "cuties & partying" for instance!

Can't wait to have 4 more rooms available to all you guys that have made My Place experience a real "treat"! You guys treat me real good, and at My Place l & ll we love to return the favor! PM directly for info. And lots of pics! And remember, at My Place l & ll, all rooms come with 21" Color TVs, Fans, Full size beds, safes, Cable, and now also WiFi Internet! And all this for just $25US a night or $150US a week, with Wingman fee waved for My Place guests!

Right in poblado I was able to take as many girls as I wanted, If the girl stays for the night they will charge you like cop10, 000 per night but if you go for a few hours is FREE as many girls as you want.

Just go to lleras and start the bidding LOL. I always take the girls phone number if I had a good GFE, take her out at night or have her visit me at my room.

Good luck


Hey,

I speak spanish and have been to Medellin about 5 times. I need a place to stay where I won't feel stupid bringing in non pros (I hate when a receptionist starts giving me weird looks everytime I return with a different girl) I want a place that is nice and not depresing with wireless internet, I prefer poblado and wouldn't mind a place with other gringos doing the same thing. I'm tempted to call the Medellin mansion but the non pros might think I'm wierd. Plus they only have a shared bath for my travel dates. I'm in my early 30's. Any help would be nice.

Frank Casio !Thanks for the pic. I would like to stay for 6 night. Will that be same price as 1 week rental which is $150? or cheaper? and will that have wingman fee waived or no? I will be arriving at 1st week of June. I e-mailed you on netzero but i didn't get any response back. How close is you place to casas near by other than street girls?

True, girls can go visit you but, if you want them to stay you will pay 10, 000 for the night.

Tiger paw is 2 blocks away from parke lleras. For the casas you have to go to el centro or by the estadio or if not mayorista. All the girls that visited me dressed normally not like a pro.

In poblado their are about 3 casas but they are hard to find.

10a and carrera 43 second floor 5 to 6 girls cop 50, 000 to 70,000

Hi justemp,

I'll pull your emai from my netzero account and send you all the info. And pics, unfortunately I don't go there as often! Week special is the same as for 6 days and both include Wingman fee waived! My Place is about an $8, 000cop taxi drive from El Centro and a $1, 300-1, 500cop Metro or Bus ride away!

Frank,

I'll be down for five days in June. I am interested in getting more info and possibly booking. I sent you a PM yesterday with details.

Can Frank or someone else tell me if Frank's place has air-conditioning? (How necessary is it? Is it cool at night or humid and hot?)

I'm trying to decide between Frank's and the Mansion.

Frank's seems much cheaper. Those staying there seem more respectful of things like noise and being good housemates so to speak. Frank sounds great. Being able to hire a guide for a very reasonable price, all make me want to go to the Franks.

The rooms at the mansion are really nice. I love the idea of having a jacuzzi, large flat screen, etc. I like that girls visit.

I don't always mind paying more to get more, particularly when on vacation, but the contradicting reports makes it difficult to come to a decision.

Maybe I'll do both and report back?

Thanks in advance and any nice casa near by IC with address,name, price would be appreciated.

Do ATM's on airport give you same rate as ones in bank or is it less COP per USD? I am wondering since from my experience with most other ATM's in other countries, airport seems to give you lower return per USD.

Paisalover
06-14-09, 21:56
Hi Vacquero,

No, you're not going to have a problem bringing a girl to your room. However, they are quite concerned about security. They will want to see her ID, maybe keep it until she leaves again. She needs to be 18 years or older. If she stays over night, you'll need to register her and they charge extra for the guest (typically COP 40, 000). I bring girls into hotels for Girlfriend 4 A Week all the time and I have experience with hotels like Sheraton (Four Points), Intercontinental and others.

The less obvious your girl dresses, the fewer problems you're going to have. Our girls don't dress like prepagos at all and we don't have any problems. If your girl looks as if she's likely going to make a scene, they might be a bit more difficult.

Have fun,

PaisaLover aka MedellinFan

I don't normally write reviews, but I will in this case. I went to Medellin by myself to check out all the good things I had heard about it. I have been to Bogota and Cali before, but never Medellin. It was a pretty busy weekend, and I got information from several people who had apartments for rent. I found "Robert" from vacationrentalsmedellin.com. He has 2 BRs for rent in a 3BR apartment (he lives in the other one). I wasnt looking to stay with anyone, but after giving it some thought, it seemed like a good way to meet someone local without starting out at a local bar my myself. It was clearly one of the best decisions of the trip. Robert lives in the next to highest floor in one of the tallest buildings in Medellin. He was more than glad to show me around as well as introduce me to some of his friends (and when I say friends I mean some super hot girls he "works" with).

He is a smart guy and really "gets it." More than likely he knows why you are there and is more than glad to point you in the right direction to find what you are looking for. My thought on the whole thing before I got there was "look, if this guy is a weirdo, I can always peace out after one night and find a better place." Trust me, there was no need to do this. He was just a cool guy just to hang out with and talk about all the things Medellin has to offer. I don't know if Robert would be available to take everyone out personally, but he made my brief stay awesome. We even got to check out some of the local adult establishments and Robert was more than glad to do so—he even waited around and enjoyed a beer while I enjoyed some of the other offerings. We also checked out some of the higher end "casas" as well as the infamous "Mayorista." Yes, there are a lot of girls near Mayorista, but that is not where the talent is down there. I would recommend it for pure entertainment, but not for any real action (sure if you want a beaten up used car, this is where you should go, but why drive a beaten up VW in an area known for Rolls Royce). Anyway, back to the apartment, the building is only about 5 minutes from Parque Lleras and you can get there by taxi for less than 2-3 bucks. It’s also walking distance from a great supermarket (Pamona) and a BanColombia (local bank) in case you need some cash.

I also had absolutely no idea when I arrived, but this guy also runs a website called girlfriend4aweek.com as well as a local modeling agency (you get the picture). I got a nickel tour and can assure you that you would be disappointed with either. The prices seem a little high (and they are compared to Mayorista or the street walkers), but when you think about what you get and the minimum 12 hour time, it’s actually pretty damn cheap. Another thing I thought was cool was that even though he was in the "adult entertainment" business so to speak, he didn’t try to pressure me at all into partaking in any of his offerings. I was so intrigued by the business though, that I must have peppered him with 1000 questions about them (who isn’t intrigued by the inter-workings of an adult business). Anyway, if you are interested in what he might have to offer, what better was to check it out then by staying with the guy, right?

Give it a try--I assure you that you won't be disappointed. If you are, then just find another place once you get there. Where else in the world can you stay in such a great location and have someone who knows the lay of the land right there to point you in the right direction?

Does anyone know if Intercontinental hotel is girl friendly?Yes, the Inter is girl friendly. When I drop off my girls there, I just walk them right to the elevator and we go to the room of the client. We've never been asked any questions. Most hotels want to see the ID of the girl and might ask her to leave her ID at the registration desk. If she stays overnight, they might require her to check in and they might charge you a guest fee (e.g. COP 40,000 in the Sheraton).


Also how much should I expect to pay for taxi from airport to IC hotel? IC hotel to downtown casas? and IC to Mayorista area?I would advice against just hopping into a taxi at the airport. That's when you're the most vulnerable: You know nothing about the area and you have EVERYTHING on you. A friend of mind was taken on the "walk of the millionaires" on a taxi ride from the airport. No fun! Better have a known driver pick you up. Let me know if you need my help.

The ride from the airport to the hotel IC with a decent car should run between COP 55,000 and 70,000. Taxis charge 50,000, I believe. Keep in mind that regular taxis here are TINY. If you travel with more than just hand luggage, you might not be able to fit your suitcase into the taxi. Another reason to order a decent car and driver.

The taxi ride from the IC to the centro should be between COP 7,000 and 10,000, depending on where you go. IC to Mayorista should be between COP 5,000 and 7,000.


Thanks in advance and any nice casa near by IC with address,name, price would be appreciated.The only casa I'm aware of which is in Poblado, close to the IC is Loutron. It's also the most elegant and most expensive casa. COP 170,000 for 60 min., I believe. All other casas are between COP 7,000 and COP 15,000 away. That's the price for living in a safe, upscale area like Poblado.


Do ATM's on airport give you same rate as ones in bank or is it less COP per USD? I am wondering since from my experience with most other ATM's in other countries, airport seems to give you lower return per USD.
I don't think that there is an ATM in the airport. Have your driver take you to a Bank Colombia ATM on your way to the hotel. Another reason for having a driver you know. No, I'm not in the driver business ;-). I believe that the rates of all ATMs are the same on a particular day. But I might be wrong.

All, have 2 quick questions on rentals featured here: http://www.paradiserealtymedellin.com/rent.asp

1.) Do these apartments typically feature air condition? I personally cannot live without a.c.

2.) On those 24 hour security rentals, do the security hassle you for bringing back multiple girls in one night? How is that typically handled? Do you need to give them a bribe to look the other way, or do they just ignore the chicas if you have a key?

Looking for accommodation in Medellin during Colombia Moda and Ferie de Flores? Look at these fringe benefits!

I share 2 rooms in a spacious 3 bedroom apartment in short walking distance from Parque Lleras. For the details (photos & videos), look at http://vacationrentalsmedellin.com.

What really makes this apartment special are the fringe benefits:


I’m the owner of the most exclusive escort service in Medellin (Girlfriend 4 A Week: my website (http://www.girlfriend4aweek.com), my ISG thread (http://www.internationalsexguide.info/forum/showthread.php?t=2983)), so I have hot girls coming in and out all the time.

I also own a modeling agency. What does that mean for you? Well, more hot girls ;-).

I have a professional photo studio in my apartment and I have photo shoots every couple of days. You can witness a professional photo shoot in your own apartment.

I teach an English class, which is full of cute girls (currently we have 15 girls and 2 guys). They all are participants and winners of local beauty contests. I bring Gringos staying with me into the class on a regular basis to give the girls the chance to talk to a “real Gringo”. Every girl is going to have a small conversation with you. We also typically go and have a coffee together after the class, which is a perfect opportunity to hook up.

I’ve been in Medellin for more than a year now and I speak fluent Spanish. Did I mention that I know lots and lots and lots of girls, regular girls and professionals? I know the tourist hang outs and the hidden secrets off the beaten path. If you want to hit the ground running, hang with me!

I want to make a pitch for the Hotel Nutibara in El Centro, which I stayed at in June.

Their rate is 107,000 COP per night ($53). Discounted for stays of 10 days or longer.

I got a nice, comfortable room and bed with the color/cable TV, and a shower where the hot water came on right away. There's a safe in the room for your valuables. They've got a unheated pool, plus sauna and steam room. Also, every morning I got a big buffet breakfast plus coffee and juice.

The staff speaks some English and is very helpful. Its in the heart of Medellin, close enough to walk to all the action.

I'm staying there when I return in October, bayboy

My buddy ask me to post this on ISG to warn other members about First American Realty.

The email below is the email I sent to the apartment owner when he finally sent us a response well into our trip, looking for the rest of his money, after we left his apartment. This should answer everything. I will do a real trip report of the fun stuff. This email summarizes our experiences with this rental/sales agency. There have been reports of them inconveniencing others, but this takes the cake.

Even though we didn't get reimbursed owner sent us an apology, the other fuckers. Still haven't heard form them after this email.

If you want to rent an apartment www.theapartmentmedellin.com are the most professional cats around (maybe pricier, but you get what you pay for)

James at www.paradiserealtymedellin.com has the same listings as these guys, actually more. And I think cats have used him.

Hello David R;

This is the first time that we are communicating, so I will approach this situation as though you have had little direct knowledge of what has happened to us, with our experiences with First American Realty, in general, and Your apartment, specifically. I will keep this as concise as possible, so maybe we can keep this civil moving forward, I rather make friends than not.

· Received confirmation for the stay in apartment, have emails from February 2009 specifically confirming that Jacuzzi and all other amenities in apartment (wifi, sauna, steam room, local phone, cell phone) would be active. (we only picked your apartment because of Penthouse, Wifi, Jacuzzi, Steam and Sauna. Otherwise we would have used somewhere else

· June 28th 2009, on a hunch (I never do this), sent an email to First American Realty just to reconfirm that we were good to go on the apartment

· June 30th 2009, finally a response from First American Realty, telling us, and I quote "The apartment that John confirmed for you was already booked. Coincidentally we do not manage that apartment directly and we have been having major problems with it in terms of the Internet, the Jacuzzi not working properly, the roof has been leaking and some other problems. We have been concerned about the lack of resolution of these problems for our clients." We called Rich Holman immediately, since his response was an obvious lie about a booking we made in February. He also informed us that the owner was preoccupied with building a strip club, and that the management was poor at best, recommending another apartment that we would never seriously consider ourselves.

· Aug 24 2009, after numerous emails reassuring us that everything was ok with the apartment, we arrived in Medellin, during one of the busiest times of the year. Upon arriving at the apartment we see that two men have been doing some quick cleaning, and straightening in the apartment. We quickly notice the following, since we are already onguard because of the lack of professionalism and integrity up to this point in the process:

· No Wifi (seems like bill hasn't been paid)

· No local phone line (seems like bill hasn't been paid)

· No Jacuzzi (it is both dirty and does not work)

· No Sauna (not functional)

· No Steam room (not functional)

· No cell phone (after yelling at John Duque of First American on the phone, he makes the guy there--NOT the actual property manager who is no where to be found give us a sim

· No Iron (the pseudo property manager--who seemed like he has rarely been in that apartment I may add is asked to go buy an iron)

· No instructions on the safesNow, in all fairness, John Duque was a trooper, he made some of his usual promises that all would be well by Saturday, the 25th, with the internet and the Jacuzzi, and mentioning that HE didn't feel that it was a 'big deal'.

Wait, Did I mention:

The pseudo property manager asked us to leave our keys at the front desk each time we left the apartment. On our second night, Saturday Night, we realized that Someone STOLE one of our brand new bottles of Alcohol from our Kitchen Counter, it was a BIG bottle. Yet another first.

After no one showed up on Saturday, we realized that we were being taken for a ride.

Aside: why was John emailing us, when we had NO internet connection?

We were being taken for a ride by the same people who failed to inform us that the apartment we wanted to book was 'already booked', well in advance, something that would have been nice, since we were coming to Medellin during the busiest year, thereby giving us some VALID OPTIONS (believe me, we tried to find alternatives).

Taken for a ride by the same people who kept changing their story about the reasons the apartment wasn't available (there are loads of emails that went back and forth)

Taken for a ride by the same people who had the audacity to send us an email on Saturday (telling us that they were coming for the rest of their money on Monday--no mention of the shortcomings of the apartment, or the lack of resolution of the issues? )

We decided it was best to get out of there, and salvage what would be left of our trip.

We actually believe we are owed something, since we had very few options because of the timing, forcing us to leave Colombia earlier than we planned.

Once again, we can see that there is more miscommunication seeing as we left the apartment the morning of Monday, July 27th (something that would have been obvious if workers really did show up to fix all the things that were wrong with the apartment), leaving our key at the front gate.

You people did a lot towards ruining a trip that was a half a year in the planning, but we were not going to let that happen--that was NEVER going to happen.

By 'you people' I mean:

· David R (you are the owner, whether or not you have any knowledge of what has been happening)

· Rich H /John D of First American Realty (no need for explanation)

· Albert (we never met, not sure we should have even needed to meet)

· The pseudo property manager and the other gentleman with him

We are businessmen ourselves, and conduct business overseas. We also own properties, NEVER have I had an experience with people with such a lack of integrity, and with blatant disregard for the intelligence of customers.

Maybe it is best that we all never met.

Fortunately, we do have large networks of fellow travelers to your city with interests in both rental and purchase properties that we will be sure to inform of your incompetence, dishonesty, and complete disregard.

Hi guys,

I'm planning to stay in Medellin for about a couple of months or so. I've check most apartments listed in the internet including here but most are in the price range of $800-$1200 a month. I've already talked to a realtor from Medellin and told me that those are the standard prices there. Are these gringo prices or not? I don't wanna end up getting rip off, so I ask if any of you guys know?

What is the average monthly rental for a 1 bedroom apartment in the El Poblado area?

Thanks,

AtcI think it's normal prices for Poblado, especially for short term 2 months.
Also if you get a "colombian" apartment, not "gringo", it can have very different standards. You should check what's included in the apartment. If it has a 42" plazma TV or some 20 y.e small TV. Some old bed and chairs, or modern furniture. Fucked up shower/bathtub or a renovated nice shower cabin, etc..

Other areas would be much cheaper. But if it's only 2 month, you would not save much.

If you don't mind me asking, but which rooms at the Castillo does that rate cover? If only for a set number of rooms, please advise here or in PM the monthly rates you'd charge for room #9.

I'm booked into room #9 for approx 33 days and I'm paying almost triple that rate.

I've asked this in private as well, but I hope that others will see that at $900 USD for a month, I'll personally vouch that it's the best deal I've ever seen in Medellin.

If everything you say is true then I would have told them to screw off when they arrived for the rest of their money and at least milked it for another couple of days since you only paid them $317 up front. I would have also ran to a internet cafe and had print outs of the original agreement with what you wanted highlighted.


My buddy ask me to post this on ISG to warn other members about First American Realty.

The email below is the email I sent to the apartment owner when he finally sent us a response well into our trip, looking for the rest of his money, after we left his apartment. This should answer everything. I will do a real trip report of the fun stuff. This email summarizes our experiences with this rental/sales agency. There have been reports of them inconveniencing others, but this takes the cake.

Even though we didn't get reimbursed owner sent us an apology, the other fuckers. Still haven't heard form them after this email.

If you want to rent an apartment www.theapartmentmedellin.com are the most professional cats around (maybe pricier, but you get what you pay for)

James at www.paradiserealtymedellin.com has the same listings as these guys, actually more. And I think cats have used him.

ACAZAR DEL PARQUEL have studios in an apartment hotel from 1. 3 million COP + public servicies.

Anyone have experience from living there?

It seems to be a good option for a long term rental, even though it is above my normal price range, but the luxury can make it worth it.

However there are lot´s of cheap apartments to rent, but they are not furnished. It costs to furnish, write all contracts, pay all bills, and then leave , practically having to leave everyting behind.

The best option should be to rent a room, but then you loose your privacy (chicas).

A catch 22-situation for one who wants to have a low rent.

I want to make a pitch for the Hotel Nutibara in El Centro, which I stayed at in June.

Their rate is 107,000 COP per night ($53). Discounted for stays of 10 days or longer.

I got a nice, comfortable room and bed with the color/cable TV, and a shower where the hot water came on right away. There's a safe in the room for your valuables. They've got a unheated pool, plus sauna and steam room. Also, every morning I got a big buffet breakfast plus coffee and juice.

The staff speaks some English and is very helpful. Its in the heart of Medellin, close enough to walk to all the action.

I'm staying there when I return in October, bayboyHi,

Do the hotel have a website? Do they check for ID's for the girls or otherwise chica friendly?

How safe did you feel staying there?

Also do they have air-condition?

Hi guys,

My wingman and I are coming down to Medellin the first week of October. I've got a room at the Four Points Sheraton. It is near the Oviedo mall in El Poblado. Does anyone know how girl friendly they are and if they charge a chica fee?

The plan was for my buddy to get a room close by. Frank's Place II is walking distance or the Mansion. But I see from Frank's posts that FP II is now closed? Any recommendations guys for somewhere else that is close by and girl friendly?

Sounds like it's hard to get girls from the Mayorista to come back with you anyway? We both have very limited Spanish.

Hi AlwaysRandy,

the FourPoints Sheraton is reasonably chica-friendly. They'll want to see the ID of the girl and probably register her if she stays more than just an hour or two. If they register her, they'll also charge you a guest fee. That's the same with all hotels in Medellin.

If you look for a more private place to stay, why don't you check out my rooms (http://vacationrentalsmedellin.com)? As you might know, I'm the owner of Girlfriend 4 A Week, I have a professional photo studio in my apartment and I also own a modeling agency. People who stay at my place are also automatically invited to the VIP Parties I occasionally throw for my clients. Lot's of action going on. Drop me a line if you're interested.

I would have also ran to a internet cafe and had print outs of the original agreement with what you wanted highlighted.I read this post last week about First American Realty, and what was written seemed extremely off base because I know both John and Rich personally.

Richard is probably the hardest working guy (American) here in Medellin.

He actually, only handles the Real Estate Sales there at First American, and John handles the rentals.

Being in Business most of my life, I know for a fact that you can´t please everyone all of the time.

In addition, there are three sides to every story. There are the stories of those two opposing views and then there´s the truth.

I actually took the time to have Rich over and interviewed him about was written.

Richard proceeded to tell me his version of the story.

Apparently, you posted this for your friend, and somehow you were doing him a favor.

Flaming First American like you did was unnecessary.

Most of the Americans that live here know and llike Rich and have done business with him, but they don´t post here on this forum.

Really, Jackson shouldn´t have allowed that post because of the negativity of it.

IMHO, We are all here to post positives and negatives to save one another from the pitfalls that exist when traveling etc.

Also, when hearing Rich´s side of story, it was 180 degrees different.

He did admit that there were things that were not working, and that he would´ve offered a discount.

Also, this is not to discredit the other two businesses that were listed.

Both of them are getting good reviews from the people that I have talked to.

Just my two cents.

This was a negative review. Why shouldn't it be allowed? If we can't post bad reviews, why bother posting? Most of us are grown men and decide for ourselves what is the truth.


Also, when hearing Rich´s side of story, it was 180 degrees different.We should hear his side of the story. No discussion. Just two sides so we can decide for ourselves.


He did admit that there were things that were not working, and that he would've offered a discount.I think this part of the story is not in dispute and this is what started the whole mess. IMO, this started it and communication problems ensued.

IMHO, regarding rental agencies in general (not necessarily FAR). Most list other people's properties not their own. They don't know the condition of the property. HOWEVER, it should be the rental agencies job to ensure that the property is clean and everything is in working order BEFORE the renter arrives.

The renter shouldn't arrive to see a place in bad condition and be offered a discount! Most are on vacation and don't have time to deal with this mess. They don't want to save a couple of dollars from a crappy place. They are on vacation and want to enjoy themselves!

Since I was looking for a place too, I did a lot of research and found that most rental places are not reliable in regard to the condition of the apartment. Only exception might be reviews of a specific unit. This is why I find that I will NEVER pay in advance for the rental of apartment (more than a day or two). I will go there myself and inspect the apartment.

My 2 cents.

From my experience with FirstAmericanRealtyMedellin, this is what they do, they have been very professional. Of course nothing is perfect and especially in this rental management business, some incidents may happen to anyone, no matter how good you are. I guess its not so easy to keep it up with so many different apartments, apartment owners and renters. Hopefully everybody learns from that incident.

Were you replying to me or the original poster? I wasn't sure since you replied to me. I do not know the original poster and he is not my friend. Hence me saying 'if what you are saying is true'. I think everyone knows there are two stories and what is true is usually somewhere in the middle. I didn't see anything negative in his post other than he had a horrible experience. No reason to not allow people posting their experiences whether good or bad. And I also know the people you mentioned.

When you find out, can you also let us know the following:

1.) What are the approx dimensions of a standard room? (of if no idea, maybe a description of small/cramped vs. medium vs. large/spacious for the size of the room will do)

2.) Do they have queen sized beds or better in single standard rooms?

3.) Will they be okay w/ chicas and do they charge you a fine if you bring one?

Frank Casio!Last spring I was in MDE and Franks Place was full. He let me stay with him at his house for 10 days and it was a very nice place to stay. For $700 a month I should move there and save all this airfare I have been spending.

3 great furnished apartments (2 or 3 brs) available in poblado. i have stayed in 2 of them. both were great locations with hi-speed internet.

the rates are very reasonable and managed by a good friend to many isg members, juan. he is listed as a dependable driver in the medellin lists by world travel 69 and his phone numbers are there.

he can also help you with transportation and translations.

Does anyone have info on a hotel in Bogota, Medellin or Cali with a Pool (or even a jacuzzi). Also looking for an apartment in Bogota or Cali with a jacuzzi. Availability for end of Jan, early Feb is optimal.

After arriving in MDE last week, I stayed at the Nutibara hotel. The hotel is ok but I bailed after 4 nights due to the noise from the disco etc. You can bring in a guest for a few hours with no charge. If they stay overnight, 40, 000 pesos. I could have relocated to another room but wanted to view other options. My bed was like sleeping on a covered board, probably just an isolated incident? Perks. In room safe, A/C, no internet in room. Internet cafe on first floor.

Hotel Internacional (not the International a different place). Is cheap ($45/night). Don't expect much. It appeared safe but the single room was just enough room to turn around in. Had to turn sideways to get into the bathroom and I'am not a big guy. This would be a good place to have a secondary room just for your romps if you have someone special and want to keep your escapades away from prying eyes.

Hotel Gran, www.Granhotel. Com, same rate as Nutibara, $56/night. The rooms are about the same size as in Nutibara but not quite as noisy. No A/C in my room but I don't need it, adjustable slated windows for ventilation, balcony. Rotating fan in room if needed, in room Wi-Fi that's a plus. Safe in room also. Not sure about chica fees? I had one visitor in twice so far staying a few hours each visit and no questions were asked. It may be because it was the same woman vs. Different women. I took the mentality don't ask if I can bring in a friend, just do it and see what happens. After I have a visitor overnight, I'll report back.

Had plans to visit some of the old spots but just have not gotten around to it. My Spanish is a bit better now and opportunities are everywhere. Most women here have the same complaint, Colombian men have too many women and Americans are perceived as treating them better.

Enjoy!

Address: carrera 34 numero 16a-sur- 185, edificio fontanar apt 1003

Owner: Robert Armenta, Joey

Telephone: 300-242-1933 (Medellin), 951-530-9981 (US)

Price: $60

My review:

The penthouse is very nice. The view is great. The location is in El Poblado with many taxis passing by, however it's not close to the metro.

I was dealing with Robert while booking my room at the penthouse. He seemed like a pretty easy going guy when I talked to him on the phone, so I decided to give it a try. I sent $120 deposit via Paypal.

Well, I would say that Robert is a little too easy going. It usually took me two emails to get my questions answered for things like: was my PayPal received, what's the address of the place, etc. I felt a bit nervous when right before my arrival Robert emailed me to find out how long I was planning to stay. Wait, where did I send my deposit, do I have a place to stay, is it double-booked? Those are all the questions that popped into my mind right away.

However, I did have a place to stay when I got there. For some reason, I had to stay in one room the first night and then move to the other room. Even though the first room was a better one, it was a bit inconvenient for me. Also, I did not have a TV in my room at first even though it was advertised. Well, these are all small things and did not bother me much.

Robert took me out a couple of times with his friends. It was a lot of fun even though I had to pick up half of the bill for those outings. Gringo prices, I guess.

One thing that I did not like at all was when I got a girl through Robert. Robert showed me the pictures of this gorgeous woman, and I decided to take her. It was $100US for uncertain amount of time. First thing, Robert asked me that I pay him the money, and he would pay the girl. I asked him what his cut was. He said that he was not a pimp and did not take the cut, and that it was just the thing of control. That the girls would know that they would have to deal with him if something went wrong. Fine. Then he said that the girl is in the taxi right now and would arrive in 45 minutes. The girl arrived 2 hours and 45 minutes later. Moreover, a different girl arrived. Of course, none of that was communicated to me beforehand. Well, the other girl was also very pretty, so I decided to go for it.

It happened that the girl refused to give me a blowjob. I am not blaming Robert for that. However, I told him that while paying $100US for the girl with $20, 000COL for taxi. When I walked into the room after, I saw Robert reprimanding the girl for not giving me a blowjob, and giving her only the 20K for taxi. I asked him whether he paid the girl, and he said yes not looking into my eyes. Also, the girl did not look like she was paid. I am not 100% sure that she was not paid, but it sure looked like it.

Well, if she was not paid, I have two problems with this. First, she did her work no matter how badly and should get paid for it. Second, even if Robert's judgement was not to pay her or partially pay her, and he is not a pimp, then I should get the money back. I did not.

One other thing, Joey has arrived in the middle of my stay. It looks like he is the guy who finances the whole thing and who is really in charge. After his arrival, my room was daily cleaned even though it was not part of the agreement. Joey also was very interested in my opinion about the place, and I have told him everything I am writing here. It looks like he is trying to make it a good business, and took all my concerns into account.

Overall, I will probably stay there at least once more. I think it has all the potential to give a good competition to the Medellin Mansion.

What is the normal rate for rooms? Can someone give me this info? Greg help?
Will be my first trip, like the $ exchange rate, got great info on girls, great reviews guys. Sounds like the GFe is good down there, might like it better than SJO. Will take advice and stay at above mentioned hotels/ limited spanish speaker, very, but love latina passion.

Definitely people to avoid. If you go out with his friends (unless they are female) you should pay your own share and that's it. Whenever people talk in terms of US dollars. You are getting ripped! Any time you are not paying the girl directly it means they are getting a cut. Stay at any of the other gringo places and they will introduce you to girls for free. From the sounds of this, I would definitely prefer the Mansion better!

I heard about a new law in Colombia that's to take effect in January - supposedly it prevents people from renting out apartments in lieu of hotels - has anyone heard about this and confirm this?

There are much better options available for apartment rental and for getting girls. Just read this board.

From a RE agent frend of mine he says that they're going to keep doing business as usual and just draw up a bull-crap form saying you stayed for a month or more to skirt this STUPID law.

OH

I'm thinking about going back to Mede in April/May any tips on a good and CHEAP apartment? like $20-$40 a night? Thanks for any leads.
