TLDR? Renting a penthouse in Medellin is the best way to take your vacation to the next level.
If you’re visiting Medellin for any length of time, it’s not a bad idea to look into renting a penthouse.
For one thing, the rent here is much more affordable than it is in other parts of the world. For another thing, the views from the top floor are incredible giving you a stunning view of the Aburrá Valley.
Don’t believe me? Here’s a quick guide to why you should rent a penthouse in Medellin.
There are a couple of different reasons why renting a penthouse is a great move. Here are a few of the top reasons why you should consider it.
Let’s face it. Not all of us can enjoy penthouse living where we come from. But, since the rent is much more affordable in Medellin, you can really get a taste for what life on the high end is like.
Personally, I think that’s a great reason to go for it. You’ll get to experience a new way of living and enjoy a vacation that really lets you relax.
Another reason why you might want to kick your feet up in a penthouse is that they come packed with amenities.
Not only will you get all the common area amenities, but you’ll usually get a few extra perks, too. For instance, you could rent a two-story penthouse. That’ll give you even more space while still getting beautiful rooftop views!
Other penthouses come with balconies, jacuzzis, or even swimming pools. Those are some pretty slick perks for your stay!
Okay, so I’ve got you sold on the idea of renting a penthouse. Now let’s just talk about how easy this is to do.
In Medellin, you’re not allowed to rent apartments for less than 30 days. That’s why renting an Airbnb in Medellin is a little bit different than it is in, say, the United States.
Despite this, a few companies have special permissions with the building management or homeowners associations. In these cases, they’re able to provide monthly Airbnb rental offers to tourists.
In terms of pricing, you’ll probably be surprised. Rent in Medellin tends to be about 67% lower than in the US. That means that you can score some pretty good deals on penthouses!
Just keep in mind that prices can fluctuate depending on the season, location, and amenities of each apartment.
If you’re ready to pull the plug and actually rent a penthouse yourself, I hear you. Here are a couple of the best penthouses around the city that are definitely worth checking out.
This place is elegant and full of wide, open spaces. While you can clutter it up with your own personal decor, that’s not the vibe you’ll get when you move in.
Provenza Arriba 701 features white and light oak wood that really brightens the place up. That’s not to mention the floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies that are in each room, each of which adds tons of fresh, bright sunlight to the space.
It’s a pretty big apartment, too. The apartment has a maximum capacity of 5-6 people, featuring three bedrooms and a whopping four bathrooms.
Atico Obra Quince 702 is a three-storey penthouse characterized by an impeccable choice of leather furniture. The floor-to-ceiling windows give an incredible view of Medellin, which is what you’re really looking for in a penthouse apartment.
There’s a stunning terrace that’s big enough for you to step out and hang out on, too. If you know anything about Colombian property, you know that this is a major perk. Most properties tend to have mini-balconies that aren’t really big enough for you to hang out on.
Not so in this apartment. Here you’ve got all the space you want.
Another cool feature of the apartment is that you can convert the dining room table into a pool table. That’s pretty unique!
In terms of size, the apartment is big enough for six people. There are three bedrooms and a total of four bathrooms, so you can say goodbye to waiting in line for the shower!
Penthouse Poblado de Lomalinde 1001 is actually a bit smaller than a couple of the others on this list.
But, that’s actually a point in its favor. It’s a much cozier space and is better for those who are traveling in smaller groups!
The apartment features just two bedrooms, making it ideal for four people. There are also three bathrooms.
This is a triplex penthouse that has a ton of amenities. You can lounge in the private jacuzzi, work up a sweat in the sauna, or soothe your lungs in the steam bath. There are also sun loungers and a barbecue on the terrace, perfect for watching the sunset!

Astorga Lofts 1501 is a three-story apartment with floor-to-ceiling windows. It has panoramic views of the city, and a top-floor terrace that’s perfect for a barbecue.
One of the best things about this place are the hanging plants in the apartment. The plants make you feel like you’re in the heart of the jungle, even while you’re conveniently located in Medellin.
