Why the Owner Chose Buenos Aires: I had been living in Buenos Aires for a few months when the opportunity arose to buy this beautiful apartment from a friend of the family. As I wasn't intending on using it as a vacation rental, I furnished it with all the comforts of home, and took a lot of care with the design and quality of the furnishings. I actually designed most of the furniture in the apartment myself with a carpenter - a true labor of love, but I'm proud to say that the apartment really feels like a home, as many of my previous guests have mentioned in my guestbook!

If you are interested, I can offer some or all of the following as part of a package (please enquire about pricing for the extras that interest you):

* Taxi transfers to and from the airport

* Twice weekly maid service

* Organic Weleda brand toiletries

* Fresh flowers

* Welcome bottle of wine or local bubbly

* Welcome fruit basket

I'm a US/ UK national who has lived on and off in Buenos Aires for a few years, and I enjoy helping visitors to the apartment to make the most of their stay by offering personalized recommendations and assistance. As somebody who enjoys international travel and has stayed in places ranging from the sumptuous to the disappointing, I've learned a lot along the way and have used this knowledge to try to offer the best vacation rental experience possible to my guests.

Thank you.

Departamento Excelente

  • Submitted: Apr 10, 2014

Alojé en este Dpto. durante el verano; el Dpto. está impecable, todos los espacios muy limpios, amplios, cuidados hasta el mas mínimo detalle; habitaciones y camas muy cómodas. La ubicación es muy buena, céntrica, a un par de cuadras del Teatro Colón, y de calle corrientes. El edificio es muy seguro.Lo que sí debo destacar, es la excelente atención de Christine, siempre preocupada de que estuvieramos bien, entregandonos buenos datos de lugares donde ir, comer, etc., y de que no nos faltara nada, lo que le dio un gran valor agregado a nuestra estadía. En conclusion, mi próxima estadía en Buenos aires, sin duda será en este lugar. Altamente Recomendable. Gracias Christine por toda la ayuda prestada durante nuestra estadía.
Hasta la próxima.

Christine is a legend! And the flat is awesome too

  • Submitted: Apr 2, 2014

This was my first vacation rental and what an incredible experience. The amount of time and effort that Christine puts into making your stay memorable is unbelievable. From providing you with a great to-do list before your arrival (based on your interests) to always assisting with reservations, recommendations and advising on just about everything at all hours of the day. And these are always spot-on! She even immediately sent me the link for a nail salon after I just mentioned I need to get my nails done..

As for the flat - just as excellent. Very centrally located, massive beds and a lovely kitchen and living area. And stocked with wine at cost price..bonus!

I would absolutely recommend renting this apartment, and hopefully you'll also be fortunate enough to get to know Christine in the process. Thanks Christine!

Fantastic place to stay

What a fantastic place!

Great kitchen with everything you need. The bathroom has a awesome jacuzzi for two.

The winning combination here is wine list and that the apartment is walking distance from most attractions and embassies.

I would most certainly stay here again!
