****** This listing is normally a private room in a shared accomodation but we are currently offering it as an entire apartment in light of the current pandemic, so let us offer you our space as a sanctuary in the heart of the city. all information below is as normally applies to the "shared accommodations"

The space
Alright, so the property itself is pretty epic, with 1500 square feet of awesomeness, it has wide open common areas, nice tall cathedral ceilings, and tons of attention to detail, chic furniture, modern design, and several nooks and sitting areas throughout so there's plenty of space for everyone :)

6 years ago, when I first arrived in Medellin, I had actually stayed at a place just down the road from this House...I had been looking for a part of town with a bit more of that authentic Colombian charm than the typical tourist trail provides... but still wanted the comfort, safety, and touches of modernity that give the higher class areas their sense of enchantment...long story short, I found exactly what I was looking for in the Laureles/Estadio area, and grabbed a room through airbnb. I would spend my days in nearby cafes, mixing music, writing, and walking down the street to the UPB University (abuzz with youthful energy and free wifi ;) ) taking spanish classes, working out, working on my projects, and before I knew it, I didn't want to leave, I felt more at home in this city than in any other I had previously traveled, and so the backpack was taken off, and almost 4 years later I'm still here :) now with my wife, and after many fortunate adventures, I stumbled upon this gem in what remains my favourite part of town, so we've since added a ton of modern details and design, and made it into the type of space where the energy flows well, and people can truly get comfortable.

Where you’ll be

Medellín, Antioquia, Colombia

As mentioned earlier the area is pretty hard to beat, just 2 blocks from the charming and energetic "la 70" stretch of cafes, bars and restaurants, with the city's most prestigious university (la UPB) and Unicentro mall and movie theater just a short walk away as well. the city's main sports stadium is just down the road aswell, where you can get a taste of Colombian soccer or check out the olympic swimming pools or free outdoor gym.
- one of the nicest things about the area is the number or healthy/organic restaurants and cafes within walking distance, as the city has just recently started to pay attention to the demand for healthy alternatives and this part of town seems to be leading the way, there's some REALLY great restaurants just a block away :)...all of this while being just far enough away from the action so that the nights are quiet and the rooms remain peaceful, like I said...pretty hard to beat :)

On one side of this story we have Keenan, an impulsive nomadic Canadian who's only true compass is his heart, a seeker of beautiful moments and a lover of life. On the other side we have Dani, a fiery young paisa with a desire to help build a better world. 7 years ago these two crazy kids stumbled into each other's lives, and neither of them could have imagined the adventure that awaited them. but now 7 years later here we are, and very happy to be here ;) across years of trial and error with airbnb's, we've managed to create a very special kind of space for travellers, where the energy is always clean, inspiring, and conducive to meeting great people from across the globe, who share a passion for culture, and for enjoying this life. We also run an Ayahuasca healing centre just outside of Medellin where we work alongside indigenous Shaman to facilitate processes of deep healing and self-discovery with the help of the Amazonian plant medicines. We've had people from all over the world join us on retreats, and this is just the beginning ;) Our mission is to help change lives for the better, and to shed light upon the incredible nature of the world we live in, and the people who compose it. So whether its to rent one of our spaces, or to join us on retreat, we'd like to thank you for choosing to connect with us, and wish you all the best on your adventure forward Keenan and Dani

During your stay

Although we don't live at the house, we come by from time to time to hang out with guests, have a coffee, grab a beer, enjoy some good conversion...you know the deal ;) and then at other times you may not see much of me at all, either way we're just a phone call away if you need anything :)
