Overview

Recoleta Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Great location in central Palermo! This gorgeous apartment in a mid-century classic French building has many updates and decorative touches that will make your visit to Buenos Aires enjoyable and comfortable. The Botanical Gardens, Las Heras Park, Alto Palermo, Palermo Soho, Palermo Hollywood and Recoleta are all within walking distance.

The apartment is just one block to the subway and buses and taxis are at your doorstep. New double glazed windows bring in the sun while ensuring that you have a calm oasis to return home to. The two modern bathrooms—both remodeled in the last ten years--sport a bathtub with rain head shower in one and a large shower stall with double shower heads in the other. The modern kitchen features a full size fridge, a gas stove with electric convection oven, microwave and all the necessary cookware, dishes and glassware to make you feel comfortable. This apartment features Wifi, televisions in both bedrooms and a mini component radio/CD player. You’ll think you’ve never left home.

You’ll feel very much the “porteno” as you step out of this beautiful building onto the broad boulevard of an upper middle-class Buenos Aires neighborhood.'

About Robert Osika

I have travelled extensively and fell in love with Buenos Aires. The city is vibrant and exciting with lots to see and do and great restaurants. I always tell everyone I was attracted to this city for the 'portenos' - Argentines are very friendly and accomodating.

Robert Osika purchased this condo in 2006

Why Robert Osika chose Recoleta

I loved the location of this apartment. You feel like you are living amongst the Argentines. The neighborhood is vibrant and lively and filled with sidewalk bars, cafes, "restos" and the streets are lined with bakeries, green grocers, deli's, flower vendors, pasta shops....everything at your doorstep!

What makes this condo unique

I totally renovated this property after I bought it and tried to refurbish it to North American Standards. The kitchen is equipped with a full size fridge/freezer, a gas stove with and electric convection oven, microwave and all the utensils, dishes, appliances and pots to make you stay comfortable. The windows facing the street have been replaced with double glazed windows to reduce noise to a minimum, making this apartment a quiet oasis.

Perfect in every aspect

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying here for 2 weeks this past winter - looking at the pictures just now made me nostalgic like I was missing my home! The location is fantastic, pretty much everything you need within a couple of blocks, and a really lovely neighbourhood. The apartment is stylish and extremely comfortable, the owner (Canadian and charming!) did a fantastic renovation. If you are looking for a great vacation rental in BA, look no further because this is it!

For the past two years, I have spent a total of 10 months in this apartment. The location could not be better. It is close to the various districts in Palermo, and Recoleta, two blocks from the Subte and a block from many bus lines that take you throughout the vast city. The kitchen in the apartment is fully equipped with high quality pots and pans, dishes, glases etc. All linens and towels are also high quality which is usually not the norm with Buenos Aires apartment rentals. The layout of the apartment is perfect for either a family or two couples. Each bedroom provides privacy. The main bedroom has its own bathroom and the second bathroom can be used as a private bath for the other bedroom. The living and dining room area is perfect for entertaining or just relaxing watching the new flat screen TV. Robert, the owner, was extremely valuable with his knowledge of Buenos Aires and his ability to make you feel comfortable in your home away from home. I highly recommend this apartment.

Very Nice Apartment in BA

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, great location. We felt like this was home away from home. Robert (owner) was a pleasure to work with. Very helpful with providing info on our trip to BA and for helping with making sure we had info about airport transportation. The apartment is very clean, roomy, and very comfortable. It was hard to leave this place. We loved it here. Close to shopping, restaurants, taxis, buses, subway. You can't go wrong here.

The building perfectly located and convenient to stores, transportation ...all you could want. The owner was extremely welcoming and helpful with questions on areas of interest we wanted to see. We would definitely use again .

Delightful Apartment in a Lovely Location

  • 5 of 5

Undoubtedly the best rental I have ever had in Buenos Aires. I have spent many months in rented accomodation in the last eight years of travelling to BsAs and this apartment tops the list as it ticks all the boxes for rental flats. First of all the location which is central to just about everything you need to reach in the city. Near all transport, subte and buses, near the best shopping centre Alto Palermo and the many shops of Santa Fe. Taxis are easily available at all hours on the adjacent streets.I loved visiting the nearby parks, restaurants and of course the shopping at Alto Palermo. Next,the apartment itself is located in a charming old building with a lovely porter available at all times, the lifts work well and there are two available at the entry level. The apartment, located on the third floor,was exactly as portrayed in the photos, has windows on all sides, lots of light and is beautifully decorated and charmingly furnished. The beds are extremely comfortable especially in the Master bedroom with a huge bed and wonderful mattress.The air conditioning worked well and quietly. Everything has been thought through carefully by the owner and the kitchen and bathrooms are well equipped. Most of all for me the apartment although facing the street on one side is nevertheless very quiet and there is no neighbour noise.It was spotlessly clean and has a very nice cleaner who comes once a week. I recommend this apartment not only for all the above but also for the welcome afforded by the charming owner Robert and the manager, Beatrix. What a great place which made my stay in Buenos Aires a fantastic experience!!!

Excellent Experience

  • 5 of 5

This place indeed lived up to it's description and to previous reviewers' comments. First, Robert (the owner) and Beatriz (the property manager in Buenos Aires) were responsive, helpful, and flexible. The cost for this two-bedroom, two bath, kitchen, and living room apartment was less than the cost of a less-than exceptional hotel room, and split between two of us was very reasonable. The apartment is clean and spacious; I like its modern uncluttered style. There is a full-size refrigerator and all the appliances necessary in the kitchen. No dishwasher, but we were in BA to sample restaurants anyway. The apartment is on the third floor at the corner of two busy streets, which has pros and cons. The advantages are that taxis are immediately available all the time, never had to wait more than 30 seconds, and there are lots of restaurants and gelato shops and bakeries within a couple of blocks. The cons are street noise, but the bedroom windows have outside wooden blinds that lower and reduce the noise, and each room has a silent and effective air conditioner/heater, so the windows and blinds can be shut, reducing the noise, but the rooms are still comfortable with circulating air. Within a 20-30 minute walk is the attractive high-end area of Recoleta, which has lots of green parks, the national art museum, which is free, weekend craft fairs, and good people-watching. I would definitely stay here again if in Buenos Aires.
