Quiet, elegant and spacious.
The apartment flows from the private garden into the huge relaxed living room which opens wide to the dining room and kitchen. Two bathrooms and a quiet dark bedroom complete this most comfortable, gracious space.

The space

This charming one-bedroom apartment in the heart of Recoleta is an excellent choice for your stay in Buenos Aires. Located on one of the city's most elegant avenues, the apartment faces the back of the building and is thus, extremely quiet.
The truly special element is a private garden patio adjacent to the living room, where high walls and ambient lighting create an excellent space for dining, cocktails or answering emails. When you do head out, you'll find that the location is incredibly central. As an Argentine friend said to me, 'If you were going to put a pin on the most desired location in Buenos Aires, it would be on this apartment.' Countless shops and restaurants are right outside your door. The famed Recoleta Cemetery as well as the city's finest hotels are a few minutes walk away.
The space is both comfortable and modern. It features marble-accented bathrooms, a fully outfitted, granite finished kitchen and a large sofa area that is perfect for relaxing. The bedroom is an ensuite with a king bed and also has a small external patio. The living and dining area is spacious and huge (especially by Argentine standards!)

The subway is a few blocks down the street and buses are everywhere!

Guest access

You will have access to the entire apartment, including the large private garden.

Interaction with guests

When you arrive, our concierge will greet you, show you around and make sure all is well. You will have their email address and cell phone number in case you need their assistance during your stay. There also is a portero who lives in the building and can help with anything immediate that may (but hopefully not!) occur.

Other things to note

The apartment is set up so that you can spread out, relax and enjoy yourself, yet be in the heart of the very nicest part of the city.

Perfect location. The housekeeper Helena was excellent . Virginia and Augusto, her manager in BsAs, could not have been more accommodating.

The apartment is in a prime location in Recoleta. It is quiet as it is shielded from the street so there is little street noise. It is also within easy walking distance to the Cemetery, and many of the areas you may want to explore on foot, and with grocery and breakfast places within a few minutes walk. There are ATM’s within 2 blocks as well. However, be prepared to have varying amounts of cash available as the amounts the ATM’s would release seemed to vary daily. Since they are heavily used particularly on weekends, be prepared. Also, many smaller stores do not accept credit cards, but it seems most restaurants do. Virginia has Augusto and Sara, who manage the apartment for her, and will make taxi arrangements for you to be picked up and taken to the airport by someone they trust. A very good idea! We came in at almost midnight and they were there to greet us and orient us to the apartment and the area. My daughter had planned dinners via friends for several nights, but when she left Augusto was very prompt and helpful making dinner reservations for us, as our Spanish is pico. The garden is spacious, but we had little use of it, as the weather was iffy with rain this time of year. The washer works well for small loads, but then we needed to use the drying rack, and due to the high humidity it took a few days for things to dry. We slept in the bedroom while our daughter slept on the couches/double beds in the living room where there are no curtains. The one shower is in the master bath, and the other ½ bathroom in in the hallway. The apartment is not new or glitzy like some of those in Palermo, but fits with the older French style of Recoleta. We actually spent little time in the apartment other than sleeping as there are so many things to see. We took a fantastic, but not your typical, all day bike tour with (URL HIDDEN) , while our daughters did a polo day. If you can, go to a production at Teatro Colon, and if not, take the tour. The English tours are at 11 AM and 3 PM. Check out the virtual tour (URL HIDDEN) ! If you are into street art, there are two tours by Graffiti Mundo of street art in two different districts. Restaurants are more a personal choice so I won’t specify any except “The Argentine Experience” which is a little touristy, but if you do the wine add-on before dinner you’ll have a lot of fun, and very good steaks and wines for which Argentina is famous.

It was a great pleasure from start to the end. Virginia was always available for all queries and her place was very charming in one of the best locations in Buenos Aires. She had great people in who helped with all the details in and around the city. Highly recommended.

I design fur and leather in Argentina, so I need a home away from home and this is it! My Argentine home is completely and fully outfitted with more than you could ever want!
The garden is my favourite area of the apartment and is what makes it truly special. The location is perfect! We are in the very best area of Buenos
Aires with shops and restaurants every way you turn.
