Earlier this year, my wife and I were planning a vacation to Ecuador and Colombia from our home base of Sacramento, CA. My wife discovered this place while exploring some options on the web. We do not speak Spanish and were a bit uneasy about some things we read about Colombia. After some initial email exchanges and a couple of telephone calls with Noah, we decided to stay at Su Casa Colombia. A big part of our reasoning was the connection we felt with Noah and the knowledge that he and Marcela were bilingual, were so knowledgeable about Medellin/Colombian culture, and were such avid supporters/enthusiasts about where they had chosen to live.
We visited for a week during late June and early July. In a word, our experience was fantastic. Noah and Marcela are great hosts and would do anything to assure our comfort and satisfaction. Our room was clean, nicely appointed, and included a very comfortable bed mattress, which was a welcome relief for my troublesome back. We loved the breakfasts, especially the emphasis on fresh, local fruits. Noah and Marcela were both very helpful in planning and arranging our outings, which included a couple of activities with Noah and/or Marcela.
While the accommodations were great, they aren’t what we remember most about Su Casa Colombia. Accommodations can be replicated nearly anywhere. What made Su Casa fantastic for us were Noah and Marcela. They are gracious, helpful, honest, straightforward, fun loving, communicative, customer oriented, and overall, great hosts. We would like to think we gained two new friends during our travels.
We were so taken with Medellin that we hope to move there in a year or so. We will definitely connect with Marcela and Noah when we do. If you plan to visit Medellin, you owe it to yourself to stay at Su Casa Colombia. You won’t be disappointed. Please say hello to Noah and Marcella from B and D.
