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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The location is great, the apartment itself is great and Christine is great. The apartment is just beautiful, well appointed, and comfortable. While staying here I was trying to figure out how I could move to Buenos aires and live in an apartment like this one.



It was perfect for us with the 2 bedrooms. Plenty of closet space, the bedrooms are nice and roomy. The beds are beyond comfortable which is perfect after a long day of site seeing. The kitchen was great for our chef friend to cook in. Its no "chefs" kitchen but he was able to whip up a great traditional milanese meal for us. A previous post mentioned its a bit noisy, which is true but remember you are in the middle of a city. No worse than any other large city experience. It's definately not a deal breaker for me.



The doorman offers a great sense of security which was nice for us 2 girls traveling alone.



Christine is great at offering information on where to go, what to see and do. She really went above and beyond for us, she spoiled us for any future vacation rental experience.



Should I ever return to Buenos aires this is the place for me!



Thanks again Christine!

Great location, Fantastic host

  • 5 of 5
This charming apartment is located in a great central location, which made walking to so many attractions totally feasible. The real bonus was having Christine and our landlord and host. She went above and beyond to find us restaurants, make reservations, give us pointers of what to see, arrange taxis to and fromm the airport, and made our visit to Buenos Aires truly memorable. It was like having a private concierge. We don't speak Spanish, so the fact that she provided us with local cell phones meant she was only a call away to provide translations if we got stuck. Fantastic first visit to Buenos Aires!

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5
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!

Quirky Apartment

  • 5 of 5
My husband,and I (70+ seniors), along with our son and daughter-in-law spent a month in this apartment and thought it was the perfect location. It was within walking distance of downtown and many parks, and interesting architecture. We used the Metro several times, with access only two blocks away. We used the ATM nearby with no problems. We tried most of the dining places that Christine recommended and enjoyed them all. Lots of bakeries, laundry, grocery stores close by. We bought fruit and veggies from a little shop next door run by a very nice young couple.

The apartment is spacious,king size beds and bedding very comfortable. Lots of closet space. Kitchen was good, although we didn't do much cooking. No toaster. Gas stove. We found the living room furniture a bit uncomfortable for relaxing after a day of walking or if you want to sit back to watch TV or read. That would be the only negative. Shower and bath worked well with no problems with water. Christine did a thorough cleaning once a week, so the place is well kept.

We felt very safe with the security of the building. We were surprised at how quiet it was since it is on a busy street.

We found Christine to be a very friendly, young women, willing to help with translation in bookings and suggesting things to do.
I would highly recommend this apartment for a long stay to use as a base for sightseeing.

A wonderful stay in Buenos Aris

  • 5 of 5
We rented this lovely apt in the heart of downtown. We found the owner Christine to be wonderful and most helpful. Not speaking Spanish ourself, she was a life saver for us! She gave us information on all the best places to go and see, directed us to the type of foods we wanted, and was very accommodating to all our needs. The apt was very clean and had everything we needed there. The beds are very comfortable, and we have bad backs! If you are wanting a nice place with reasonable prices, this is it! Christine, your doing a wonderful job! I am not going to forget to mention the big bath tub.. its nice... and yes it is big enough to two! :) Thank you for helping make our trip so enjoyable!

My fifth trip to Buenos Aires and this apartment remains one of my best kept secrets for where to stay! Great location, very close to tourist areas incl. restaurants and nightlife. Beautiful, quiet and romantic spot. You are very lucky if you can reserve this location! The owner goes out of her way to make sure you have a perfect stay. Safe travels and have fun in Buenos Aires.
