Recoleta Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Indoor Space: 110 m2 (1184 ft2)

Outdoor Space: 40 m2 (430 ft2)

Max.Capacity:

This charming one-bedroom apartment in the heart of Recoleta is an excellent choice for your stay in Buenos Aires. Located on one of the city's most elegant avenues, the apartment faces the back of the building and is thus, extremely quiet.

The truly special element is a private garden patio adjacent to the living room, where high walls and ambient lighting create an excellent space for dining, cocktails or answering emails. When you do head out, you'll find that the location is incredibly central. As an Argentine friend said to me, 'If you were going to put a pin on the most desired location in Buenos Aires, it would be on this apartment.' Countless shops and restaurants are right outside your door. The famed Recoleta Cemetery as well as the city's finest hotels are a few minutes walk away.

The space is both comfortable and modern. It features marble-accented bathrooms, a fully outfitted, granite finished kitchen and a large sofa area that is perfect for relaxing. The bedroom is an ensuite with a king bed and also has a small external patio. The living and dining area is spacious and huge (especially by Argentine standards!)

Recoleta is adjacent to several neighborhoods including Palermo and Plaza San Martin, both of which are a short taxi ride away.

I design leather and fur clothing and handbags in Buenos Aires. Because of that, I am there a lot and wanted a home base for myself when I am in Buenos Aires. You will feel at home here. From the wedgwood china to the extra comfortable bed, this apartment is definitely outfitted to be the most enjoyable experience for both you and me!

Virginia Lato purchased this condo in 2005

As one of my Argentine associates said to me, if you were putting a pin on a map of Buenos Aires, targeting the very best location, it would be my apartment. It is quiet, yet close to absolutely everything. You will walk the city from this location. The neighbourhood is thriving and alive with more restaurants and shops than you can possibly want, but safe and secure.

People are astounded when they see the garden that is part of this apartment. Two complete walls are windows to the garden, making the whole apartment airy and open. I normally leave the doors wide open, allowing the breezes to flow through the apartment. Since we are at the back of the apartment, the most common noise is that of the birds singing.

To make it complete, the location simply cannot be beat! Restaurants and shops abound right outside the door. If you don't want to walk, taxis are easy and plentiful, while the subway is just down the street.

An excellent base for a stay in Buenos Aires

I rented this apartment for a month during the (Argentine) winter, 2013. The apartment is unusually spacious, and is very elegantly furnished, in a somewhat minimalist style. The patio or enclosed garden is a huge advantage, wonderful to look out on even if the weather is too cool to sit there for very long; the windows and glass doors that give onto the garden mean that the living space inside is unusually bright and pleasant. Recoleta is a well-heeled area of the city, so the urban environs are agreeable. It's a ten or fifteen minute walk to the famous Recoleta Cemetery, and to the Museum of Fine Arts. Food shopping is easy and good.

The description and the photos on the VRBO website are accurate in every way. Very thorough and attentive twice-weekly cleaning is provided. A friendly and helpful local property manager is readily available for any small matters that come up.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the property to a friend or relative; my only hesitation might be that I would want to be there myself.

The apartment lived up to the description to perfection. A delightful, fabulously located place to stay. Comfortably accommodates 3 people and has all the equipment and facilities to make a real home from home experience. The patio is a sheer delight.Great assistance from the apt manager and everyone involved in the letting could not have been more helpful.

A Very Nice Apartment

My wife and I stayed here for a week.

It's a nice one-bedroom place with a well-equipped kitchen and a garden/patio in the back. Even though it's on a major street, it's very quiet. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is roomy, and the place is within easy walking distance of food shopping and some good restaurants.

The owner couldn't be nicer and more accommodating.

I highly recommended this apartment.

A Terrific Place

  • Stayed: Apr 2013
This is a wonderful one-bedroom apartment with a garden/patio off the living room. It has a main bathroom with a nice shower, a well-equipped kitchen, and a very comfortable bed. There's a washing machine, a TV (which we never used), and a small safe.

It's in a great location, close to a number of good restaurants and a supermarket. Cabs are a snap to hail on the street on which the apartment sits. You can also walk to a lot of the city's attractions from here.

Virginia, the owner, couldn't be nicer. You really can't go wrong with this place.
Owner's Response: Thanks Kenny and Angela!
You two were incredible to deal with, so the pleasure is all mine. One of the wonderful unexpected consequences of renting this apartment has been the people who have come into my life.
Be well and thank you ever so much for sharing your joy with me.
Warm regards,
Virginia

excellent location, very comfortable apartment

My husband and I spent 3 weeks in Virginia's apartment in Recoleta. The listing description is very accurate as are the photos. The apartment is extremely well situated , we walked everywhere and only did a taxi for long distances, like the airport, or the bus depot. The property is clean and a cleaning lady comes twice a week and is excellent. Virginia was outstanding at answering emails promptly, providing information, almost a manual ,to acquaint you with the apartment and the neighbourhood. Virginia was very helpful and enthusiastic. We would highly recommend the apartment and certainly would stay again ourselves if we go back to Buenos Aires.
We enjoyed exploring all areas of Buenos Aires as it is a very diverse city. Lots of free activities too, if you know where to look for them. There are free classical music concerts every week with the BA Law school, and in addition lots of other free concerts and art programs through the various cultural centres. I simply googled free activities in BA and angloinfo Buenos Aires. Also the National Arts Museum is free on Tuesdays and the MALBA ( Latin American art) is reduced in price on Wednesdays. Both are great. The San Telmo market on Sundays on Defensa Street is amazing, and there are numerous touching political events such as the madres in Plaza de Mayo on Thursday afternoon. If you can attend a football game like we did ( we went as part of a tour and would recommend that ) it is a great experience., lots of fun. Buenos Aires is an amazing city with something for everyone.
An exceptional city , and a great location and apartment to explore from.

Owner's Response: Thanks Cecilia and Gordon!
We agree- we too love the apartment and the location of that apartment!! It is simply a treasure that we were ever so fortunate to find.
You were a complete pleasure to deal with. Our world is better when we meet people like you!
Your extra tips for enjoying the city are perfect! We have spent a lot of time in Buenos Aires and you searched out things that I have never found. Your advice is ever so useful.
Take care and many thanks for enjoying our home in Buenos Aires.

We will supply complimentary maid service twice weekly as well as an english/spanish speaking concierge who will help you get oriented and then take care of any possible problems while you are there. The apartment is spacious, relaxed, luxurious and clean. It is totally renovated with porcelain tile floors, granite kitchen counters and marble bathrooms. The apartment is at the back of the building, making it extremely quiet. All you hear are the birds even though you are in the center of the city! The most unique, the rarest part of this apartment is the huge patio. It is unheard of in Recoleta to have a huge, walled, private garden, but we have it! It is true 'inside-outside' living as the apartment seamlessly moves from inside to out.
