Recoleta Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

For most foreign visitors, Recoleta and Palermo are the top residential neighborhood choices in Buenos Aires. The best-kept secret is that just between them lies La Isla (The Island), an exquisite, small hill surrounded not by water but by parks and grand staircases that keep major traffic at bay.

Gelly y Obes, just two blocks in length, is the main street of La Isla, the address of the mansion of the British Ambassador and that of the most aristocratic and private Argentines. During your visit to Buenos Aires, you will have the chance to stay in La Isla, at a fantastic 140 square meter NON-SMOKING apartment comfortably appointed for four or five guests with great living room/dining room, study, three bedrooms, three bathrooms, wireless Internet, phone land line and a complementary cell phone to keep in touch with your travel companions.

You will be at walking distance from Recoleta, with it's restaurants, cabarets, multiplex, artisan street fairs, and cultural center. You will also be at three blocks from the Museo de Bellas Artes and two from the National Public Library. But you will be above it all, in a capsule of comfort and peace, that you can leave only when you are ready for noise and excitement.

I am a film producer with properties in the Caribbean, New York, and Buenos Aires.

Carlos Munoz purchased this condo in 2007

I was thinking about making a real estate investment, but was undecided. When I saw this apartment, I fell in love with it. It is extremely spacious, has a wonderful balcony on a very quiet cobble street, it is so centrally located yet in an exclusive area of the city... I just couldn't let the opportunity escape.

I love how quiet and comfortable the place is. It is really my home away from home.

This apartment/ flat is an excellent value with superb amenities/decor and located in a safe and affluent part of Buenos Aires. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Buenos Aires, loved the apartment and the wonderful service and assistance provided by the owners Carlos & Alex and Maria, on-site office administrator. Everyone was so helpful in providing good advice and suggestions on what to see and do in Buenos Aires. More importantly, Carlos, Alex and Maria are a real pleasure conducting business with and are extremely professional, polite and good people. The next time I travel to Buenos Aires, I would definitely like to reserve the flat again. It truly is a home away from home. Thank you Carlos, Alex and Maria for your kind hospitality!

We went to BA to pick up our daughter who was finishing a semester abroad at the University of Palermo. As long time VRBO users, we spent days looking for the best value - and think we found it! This apartment is perfectly situated on a nice side street very close to the Cemetery, the weekend markets, restaurants, and the main streets to catch buses, cabs, etc. The apartment itself was perfect for 5 people - doable with a 6th for a few nights. Carlos (the owner) was very responsive and Maria (his local manager) equally as so. From check in, to mid week touching base, cleaning, and check out - this was a great value in the perfect location and we would stay again. Thank you!

Our daughter, who was studying in Montevideo, had a week off, so we decided to meet her and her boyfriend for a week in Buenos Aires. The owner of this apartment was very flexible with our arrangements so our daughter could come 1 day earlier than us.
The apartment is well-located in an excellent neighborhood. We did have to take the small elevator twice to get all of us up to the 7th floor.
Having the walk-around space of an apartment and the ability to prepare some meals, plus free wireless, makes this option so much better than using multiple rooms in a hotel.
Not too fancy, but all is in good working order, which I guess is already a good thing for B.A. (this was our first time). Definitely recommended to stay here!

Wonderfully apartment!

We were so thrilled with this apartment for so many reasons. We were a group of 5 and it was so wonderful to have three bedrooms and three bathrooms. I found the price very reasonable and there were lots of amenities such as wi-fi, a local cell phone, laundry and a fairly well stocked kitchen. The location is great and we found we could walk to Palermo and even downtown, though it was a long walk. Museums and the Recoleta Cemetery are close by. I appreciated all the helpful advice left by the owners, such as restaurant recommendations and info about taxis. When traveling, it is so nice to be able to stretch out and have personal space, which doesn't happen in a hotel and this apartment is very spacious. It is a secure building with a very friendly doorman.
Owner's Response: We are happy you had a good time. Please tell your friends! We read that Argentina is still one of the countries where US Dollars and Euros get most favorable exchange, so we hope more people will be visiting our great country.
