General description

  • Main home
I live on a small farm with fruit and avocado trees in the back. It’s a 2-bedroom, 2 bath home, with a small guest cabin. The view in the front is La Piedra de Peñol. It’s a very tropical setting without the tropical heat. Bus, cab and other transportation is available either at the door or within a km from the house. The neighborhood is safe and the neighbors are friendly.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Many plants
  • 4 dogs
There are 4 dogs of mixed breed. Three are between medium and large and one is a small terrier mix. They require walking once per day, feeding twice per day. I may have 2 of the dogs go to a guardaria, if 4 is too many for the housesitter(s). They sleep inside at night. There are plants around the outside of house that need watering periodically. It rains enough so the garden plants and trees should not need watering.

Although it is country, there are lots of other small farms and houses in the neighborhood. There are plenty of hammocks for relaxing in the yard. A large covered patio provides a beautiful view. Since it is a tourist area, there are many boats to take you on the water, and a variety of good restaurants in the town of Guatape. Most people don’t speak English, so some Spanish would be helpful, though there’s always google translate.

Comfort and Luxury

  • One floor
  • 6 rooms of which 2 bedrooms
  • Contemporary
  • Car parking available
  • Landscaped garden
  • Veranda
  • Art and music
  • Fitted kitchen
The patio is really lovely and a great place to relax in a chair or hammock. There is no TV, but there is wifi so streaming is available. The guest bedroom has a king size bed, and the kitchen has a microwave and electric oven, in addition to the stove. There is a working wood fireplace in the living room for chilly evenings. A weekly housekeeper will keep the house clean.

Tourism and Leisure

  • Mountain
  • Countryside
  • Forest
There are many water sports available, including fishing. The Piedra is a popular place, where you can walk the 700+ steps to the top and see magnificent views. Medellin is a 2 hour bus trip if interested in city sites. Guatape is a charming little town of colorful homes and weekend entertainment. There are both typical Colombian restaurants, as well as Asian, Cuban, Italian, American, vegetarian style restaurants.

I’ve included 3 days before I leave and one day after I get back. Those are flexible days, but it would be good to have time to give you necessary information and show you around the area before I leave.
