Sweet Dreams in Recoleta!

It doesn't get any better! My husband and I just spent three weeks in this stunning apartment nestled in one of Recoleta's best neighborhoods. This is a place where you will feel very special. It's beautiful, unique, and stylish, and at the same time warm, inviting and comfortable.
The photos don't do it justice, it is much more charming in person with it's soaring ceilings and exquisite decor. The amenities are as listed with everything needed for a comfortable stay -- hairdryer, washer/dryer, towels, fully-equipped kitchen, top line sheets and bedding, dozens of towels, premium shampoos and body wash. The bed it outstanding - better than any hotel.
The neighborhood is probably even better than listed -- it has everything from bakeries, markets, fruit stands, dry cleaners, outstanding restaurants and shops, along with many of Buenos Aires popular sights, all within walking distance. You can hail a cab right out the front door, yet the apartment is situated in a spectacular courtyard, quietly tucked away from the bustling city streets.
What truly sets this apartment apart is its owner, who was not only instrumental in helping us plan an amazing trip, but goes above and beyond to make sure the guests are enjoying themselves -- without being the least bit intrusive. This includes emailing tourism information in advance, arranging airport transfers, setting out a sumptuous welcome breakfast, helping navigate currency conversion, suggesting places of interest to visit -- all very intuitive and personalized with respect to what guests will enjoy.
Whatever you do, ditch your tour books and check out the owner's list of restaurant recommendations -- we tried most of them and all were outstanding -- Due, Teatriz, Sirop, and don't miss Lele de Troya. Have high tea at the Park Hyatt and pay the extra peso for the recorded headset at the Eva Peron Museum. Visit a closed door restaurant, like CasaSaltshaker. Check out a milonga and the San Telmo Market. Take in the colors of La Boca and have lunch at El Obierto.
This apartment is a wonderful place stay if you want to to experience all the joys that Buenos Aires has to offer. Sweet dreams/dulce suenos!
