Recoleta Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 4

Step back in time to Buenos Aires Golden Age. This French historical apartment was built in 1928. It was lovingly restored in keeping with the elegance and glamour of that time. Decorated with crystal chandeliers and period antiques, we have created an environment that honors the original home. It’s like a fantasy that transports you back in time. A time when Buenos Aires embraced everything French. They became known as the Paris of South America. The French were the last word in style and good taste. A time when the women went to Paris for their clothing and architects were brought over from France to design the beautiful buildings. We’re pleased to offer to you The House of Chanel, named after the “first lady” of style, Coco Chanel.

Guestbook comments from the manager
My friend and I were the very first guests to this flat and "oh my god" were we in wonderland when we opened that front door! I personally have been to Buenos Aires 18 times and this property is the most luxurious I have seen thus far - it's right out of "Architectural Digest." I also consider myself an art deco connoisseur having had 3 antique shops in San Francisco, Ca. specializing in art deco and this deco remodel is true to the period as well as the furnishings and furniture. BRAVO!

I have always loved to fix and design. When I began my real estate career at 24, I soon realized that the best part of the job was meeting with architects and interior designers and watching as the more artistic elements of construction fell into place. After 13 years in real estate, I built two homes, vacation rentals on magical Orcas Island in Washington State. Then I undertook a major remodel of a cabin on the water. Something clicked during that process of transforming the cabin into a unique work of art; I knew I had found my purpose in life.

Through the next several years, I transformed some 30 rather decrepit homes into fresh, beautiful residences, working tirelessly at the rate of two or three a year. Then I decided to turn my creative attention to designing and constructing very special vacation accommodations. I moved to Mexico, the land of color and craft, and began working there.

The most exciting phase of building a new place is when everything gets pulled together. I love the details, making sure that one thing plays with another in perfect harmony. During the process, I'm absolutely consumed. Each project takes every ounce of my imaginative life -- and I love it.

I enjoy being able to see the possibilities in a wreck of a dwelling. When I first set eyes on a place in need of a make-over, I see what it could be. I can envision how the finished place will look...and that vision guides me.

I work an average of six to eight months on each project, directing a local architect and construction team, supervising every step along the way to make certain my vision is embodied in bricks and mortar, paint and plaster.

I'm always on the hunt for that specific hand-selected piece that blends with everything else. The beauty of Mexico is being able to design a particular piece that can be made by one of the talented artisans that works beautifully...like a glorious puzzle.'

lovely Deco apartment in Ricoleta

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in the lovely apartment in Ricoleta. We were met at the airport by a wonderful driver recommended and arranged by our host at the apartment, and found the place very conveniently located and extremely stylish yet practical and comfortable. It was clean and we were able to enjoy breakfast and lunches at the apartment. There were lots of great markets, delicatessens, restaurants and galleries nearby as well as fine architectural details to admire in the neighbourhood. The bedrooms were quiet, light and the internet was reliable! Altogether a wonderful spot, to which we'd love to return.

An elegant base for our wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is beautifully designed and had all the facilities we needed. It is located in a beautiful building, in a great safe neighborhood. We were very close to the Recoleta cemetery which has wonderful restaurants and markets. We could walk to everywhere we wanted to go in BA. The owner and property manager were wonderful. The apartment was regularly cleaned.
We intend to come back to BA, and use this apartment.

Totally stunning apartment

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was pure luxury, furnished with exquisite and very unusual items of furniture. The deco bathroom in particular was pure Hollywood! The location in Recoleta district is perfect being close to Recoleta Cemetery (and fascinating artisan fair at week-ends), great shops and local amenities. The apartment manager and designated driver were more than helpful and really added to the whole experience with their local knowledge and recommendations. I would highly recommend this beautiful and one-of-a-kind apartment as a great base to explore the vibrant City that is Buenos Aires.

I've had some experience renting apts. in Brasil and Argentina the last ten years. It's very rare that I've found an apt. that reflects the love of the owner like this one. It's obvious in every detail, not to mention the washer/dryer and a dishwasher. Beautifully furnished, decorated, located and managed. Thank you Mariana, the gracious property manager. Thank you Carlos, who provided our ride from the airport and back again. Very professional and a good guy (use his service you'll be pleased)...tip the maid, she deserves it. Buenos Aires is too nice and the apt. is the cherry on top. Great vacation!

Notes:
The flat is housed in a special historical building that has just ten private homes. It was designed by the architects, Gelly Cantillo and Moy. Several of their buildings are published in the 2008 book, Buenos Aires Art Deco y Racionalismo. It was built in 1928 in the French Art Deco style. You’ll know you’re somewhere special when you walk through the stylized Art Deco doors and enter the marble entry with the period wrought-iron elevator. I did a complete remodel in 2010, paying careful attention to restoring the original floors, doors, and door hardware. I incorporated all new luxury conveniences and materials into the restoration: granite counters in the kitchen and classic black-and-white granite floors in the kitchen and bathroom. To achieve the feeling of high elegance, I used quality materials throughout, from the faucets to the light fixtures. An important antique chandelier glistens in the entry. Several French Art Deco antiques and light fixtures add elegance.
