Got a lot of questions from people wanting to know the cost for the penthouse we’re renting in the La Frontera neighborhood of Medellin. In case you haven’t seen it yet, watch the video tour of our place in the video below:
I am paying a lot more than what most people will need, and there are a bunch of personal factors that drove my costs up. Keep in mind you can find a much nicer looking place for cheaper, if you don’t need the room.
Our place is HUGE — well over 3,000 square feet. You don’t see that much space here often. So before I get into the pricing, let me explain the factors that drastically boosted my costs.
Wow … We had an exciting weekend. I was suppose to go out and meet with other expats that are business owners to exchange ideas and resources, but my wife took both cell phones (one was supposed to be left in the house for our older daughter to call us as needed). And then when she got home, my Uber app didn’t want to work right, and then my cell phone crashed. I took all of those to be signs that I should stay home. Good thing I did.
About 2 hours later, while binge watching my favorite show on NetFlix, The Killing, my 9 year old come running and screaming about a bird in the house. I jump up and look to see what all the commotion was about, and there it was … a big old BAT flying around in my house.
Watch the 2 part video to get all the details:
Reinforcements showed up led by a 9 year old (I know … it’s shameful, LOL)
They could never find the bat … we assumed it flew out the same way in came in (through the open vents in the laundry room)
