3 bedroom, 3 bathroom apartment occupying entire floor, on one level, accessed via lift so perfect for those with limited mobility. In the best neighborhood within walking distant of shops, restaurants, the famous cemetery.

The space

RECOLETA based apt. occupying entire floor in multi story building. There is an elevator up to our flat and it is entirely on one level, so it is comfortable for those who have difficulty with stairs. It is approximately 127 square meters (that's 1,366 square feet for us Yanks!).
The two bedrooms, which are located down a hallway on one end of the apartment, are removed from the common areas, so you can have peace and quiet, if there are those with different sleeping habits. I am picky about linens and pillows, so it is outfitted with a good quality in this regard:

One- with a double bed, with en suite bathroom with sink, shower, toilet and bidet. This is a small bathroom, be advised.

Two- The principal bedroom has a queen sized bed and is across from the main bathroom which has a bathtub, sink, toilet and bidet.

Three- The final bedroom is a small maid quarter with a twin size bed for one person only, with a water closet containing the shower, sink and toilet. This is off the kitchen so it is designed for an au pair, maid, or annoying relative. I've updated the linens from that shown in the picture, so it is more cheery than shown.
Finally, for overflow, the library room has a daybed with a trundle.

There is a small kitchen, perfectly adequate, but I don't do much cooking there, to be honest-too many great restaurants nearby. However, there is a spacious dining room for guests who do cook, which flows to the living room, with a library/sitting room beyond, so it's an open floor plan for the public rooms. There is a 10 meter balcony that runs the length of the apartment, so there is good light. Decorated nicely-my daughter and I worked with a local decorator and purchased furnishings from local Argentine designers and the antique dealers, to include nice crystal with which to drink your wine. No IKEA here! Long term rates for the month available, or rent by the week. Excellent location. All mod cons, to include internet, tv, and air-conditioning. There is a small laundry room located in-between the kitchen and the maid quarter with a washing machine and a rack for drying. There is local dedicated mgmt for your needs and weekly maid service can be arranged, as well as pick-up/delivery service to and from airport, with payment made to the driver ( I use a reliable English speaking driver).

Will negotiate on pets.
*Please note, although the neighborhood is listed as "Retiro" by Airbnb, this is incorrect. Their computer mapping system has pulled another Guido address and I can't seem to get this corrected. My only complaint with them!

Melissa's home has an excellent location and its a spacious nicely equipped apartment close to great touristic sites in Buenos Aires. Above all, the attention from Marcela is superb and she is prompt to answer questions or clarify any doubts about city transportation, restaurants or logistics. We had a difficult arrival coming from a snow storm in Bariloche and Marcela was continuously following up on our arrival time, flight information and timely welcome. Melissa was very sensitive to our situation and our family of five was very comfortable during the week we spent there. THanks for sharing your home with us.

Everything was terrific! The apartment is perfectly located and in excellent condition. We'd love to stay again. Melissa was a wonderful host. Marcela and Dario (who help Melissa manage the apartment in BA) are delightful and very helpful. We'd highly recommend this apartment.

We had a great time at Melissa's apartment. Location is great, close to several shops and restaurant. Very nice area to walk around. Building is very quiet and street noise is decent given the location on one of the busiest areas of the city. Marcela (the aparment's manager) is also very friendly and attentive. Would definitely recommend the place!

This is a beautifully furnished and light filled apartment in the middle of a lovely neighborhood in Buenos Aires. Melissa was very accommodating and helped us figure out what to do during our stay in the city. The apartment was fully prepared with everything you could hope for including a fully prepped kitchen, lovely sheets and towels, and yummy teas, fruits, and breads for our first breakfast in BA.

Very nice place. Great location and very spacious. Next to a fairly busy road with some noise but not a problem for us. Would definitely stay again.

Thoroughly enjoyed our experience in Buenos Aires. Apartment was filled with towels, some kitchen supplies, and maps. Marcela was great and extremely helpful in navigating the city and the apartment. The third bedroom was minimal and should not be considered usable. Would definitely stay here again!

Hello! Recently, my life has been spent heading east and west between the U. S. and Europe, which is why I'm listing our apartment in B. A. I don't have as much time to head south to Argentina at present! However, my loss can be your gain!
I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
