Palermo Soho Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2BR/2BA High Ceilings, Huge Windows Onto V.private Large Balcony & Dipping Pool

This bright and airy modern two-bedroom apartment was built and decorated with the closest attention to detail. When we designed our house we kept the historic facade and gutted the crumbling interior and re-designed it with some of the most modern architects in Buenos Aires known for their 'Punta del Este' aesthetic. You enter the apartment through a period door, and ascend a steep staircase straight into the heart of a large living and dining area with an open kitchen, where high ceilings, expansive floor-to-ceiling glass doors, hardwood floors, and natural fabrics create a unique flow of light and air. The two bedrooms are just off the main room, and are tranquil spaces with double glazed windows, blackout blinds, muslin curtains and good closet space (and one safety deposit box). The Master Bedroom features a king sized bed with a white linen wrap-headboard, and the second room has and two twins resting on a long beautiful wooden headboard designed so that the twin beds can elegantly be made into a king size bed (please request this before arriving if you need it). All linens are included and are changed once a week. The bathrooms are a symphony of luxurious warm wood and cool Carrara marble, both with modern rain shower heads and natural light. The master bedroom has an ‘ensuite’ bathroom and the bath features Jacuzzi jets. The second bath can be either similarly accessed as an ‘en suite’ from the second bedroom, and/or accessed from the living room by guests. Back out in the open plan living and dining area, the open kitchen features a Carrara Marble countertop, gas cooking stove with extractor, traditional Argentine stove top espresso maker and a traditional Argentine stainless steel orange juice squeezer, classic white dishware, microwave, small dishwasher, washer/dryer and fridge. The dining area next to the kitchen looks out onto the large private deck and features a lovely large wooden dining table that seats 6 comfortably and 8 if you use chairs from the patio. The living room opposite the dining area features extra deep, luxurious linen sofas. There is WiFi, TV/Cd/DVD player where you can plug in your iPod. Lining one entire side of the apartment are enormous floor to ceiling glass sliding doors that open up onto a delightful but large wooden-decked terrace that is completely private, allowing for the apartment to be drenched in natural light whilst affording full privacy in all indoor and outdoor living spaces. The 37 sq.m terrace is perfect for both entertaining and relaxing, featuring a retractable awning, bistro marble topped table with chairs, two wooden sun loungers, a barbecue, and a lovely dipping pool surrounded by plants.

Go down the stairs to leave the apartment and after stepping out of our inner and outer private front doors, into you’ll find yourself in the heart of Palermo Soho, a tree-lined neighborhood full of cobble stoned streets, next to bars, restaurants, cafes and chic shopping, dining and nightlife options. Across the street you will find a great neighborhood bakery, and around the corner a large grocery store and a gym a few blocks away and a happy hour at the next door bar. But best of all is that downstairs you can dine at what is literally the best steak restaurant in all of Buenos Aires – ‘La Cabrera’. You will want to go back there again and again! (They can do tapas for you to have by your dipping pool should you wish!)

Our apartment is located in the vibrant and trendy neighborhood of ‘Palermo Soho’ (sometimes also called ‘Palermo Viejo’). This is not the upscale neighborhood of Recoletta - this is the most bohemian and avant-guard neighborhood in Buenos Aires. This picturesque quarter underwent a process of gentrification a number of years ago and still retains it’s strong ‘neighborhood’ feel to it. It has the same kind of feel to it as Soho in New York. The cobbled streets, the tree-lined sidewalks and the low-lying buildings, many of them with their original façades, are now host to Buenos Aires’s most thriving scene. Relax in the numerous cafés and watch the world go by, venture into art galleries, or explore what Argentina’s young designers have to offer by shopping in the many little boutiques that the area has come to be known for. There is no shortage of night-time activities either – this part of town is known for its fabulous restaurant selection and popular bars, all within walking distance from our apartment.

We have two properties in Palermo Soho, only a few blocks from each other. The other property is listing number 454128. It is slightly smaller and has a slightly lower price point. Both are two bedroom, two en-suite bathrooms, both designed by the same architects with similar aesthetic and furnishings (the other apartment has 2 Queen beds and is only one block from Plaza Serrano). With enough anticipation, rentals can be arranged for both properties simultaneously, so that groups of 4 couples could go on holiday together to Buenos Aires.

When we rent the apartment out we normally only allow children over the age of 12 as it has steep steps to the center of the apartment with no child gate. Our other apartment is suitable for children. Please look at our listing 454128.

Check-in is at 16:30, and check out is at 11:00. If you require early check-in let us know what time you would like it at the time of booking and we will make every effort to accommodate you at the time of booking (we cannot guarantee that we can upgrade you to ‘early check-in’ if you request it after the time of booking). Late check-outs outside of this schedule are subject to availability and will only be able to be confirmed the day before check-out. If you want to confirm a late check-out this is only possible by charging you for an extra night at the time of booking.

Whilst we do not take a damage deposit at the time of making the booking, we do require a damage deposit two weeks before check-in of US$1300. Our property manager will send you an bill at that time via PayPal for US$1300 that you can pay with any major credit card. Failure to pay this will result in cancellation of the booking with no refund. This refundable deposit will be returned via PayPal at the time of check-out, following inspection of the apartment, or within 7 days of check-out at the very latest. Any breakages or damages will be deducted from the damage deposit, and we may sometimes need a few days to receive estimates for repairs.

When you rent our apartment it comes with weekly maid service, with a good and honest maid that has worked with us successfully for years (you can pay her extra to come more often if you wish). Catering is also possible upon request. We have wonderful local administrators who have also worked with us for years, who are Argentine and Swedish, and speak fluent English. Should you wish they can arrange for safe airport pick up and since they also run a local travel agency, they can help with any other manner of issues from buying tickets to shows, domestic travel and hotel bookings within Argentina, and are always on call should you need a hand with anything.

We are a couple with two young kids living in Austin, Texas. I am a sculptor and my husband works in solar. Before we had kids, we lived in China for six years and after that took a year off traveling around central and South America. We decided to take a rest from backpacking and when we got to BA we rented a place in Las Canitas for a month, planning to move on after that. Well, that never happened. We fell in love with Buenos Aires, bought a place and spent six months there gutting its insides, keeping its historic facade and building a beautiful place to come back to. I speak fluent Spanish (I grew up in Spain) so it was not too hard for me to do, I worked on my sculpture at a wonderful little studio a few blocks away during the building and my husband took lots of Spanish lessons in pretty little courtyards and jogged every day around the Jardin Botanico. Now we have two young kids, so our days of random wandering are over and we don't make it down to BA as much as we had hoped to!

Leslie Begert purchased this apartment in 2006

When we spent weeks wandering around every nook and crany of Buenos Aires, we'd always come back to this neighborhood of Palermo Soho as just simply having the best vibe. We just loved it, it reminded us of our former lives in Soho NYC and Notting Hill in London. So it was clear that if we bought it would have to be here.

We loved that with this apartment we got the best of both worlds. The property has a lovely historic facade that we kept, and yet, because the inside had to be demolished we had the luxury of building a modern apartment with all of our dream features - really high ceilings, LOADS of light, an entirely private decked terrace with dipping pool for those hot summer days, quiet double glazed bedrooms. We got to pick our architects and decorators, and we just adored the aesthetic of a relaxed modern feel they brought to our dream project.

My family and I enjoyed this stunning apartment during our month’s stay this past April and May. First of all, I cannot give enough praise to the local staff -- the manager, the handyman, and the maid. Polite, and kind, eager to help, conscientious and considerate, they answered all my concerns with efficiency and sometimes went beyond the call of duty to assist me.

The owner of the apartment was quick to answer my questions in my initial search for an apartment. Of all the people I dealt with, she was the most articulate and the most responsive to my needs.

The apartment itself is stunning with soaring ceilings in the front section and a whole wall of glass that lets in light throughout the day. Immediately outside, there is a lovely terrace with a tranquil pool that I sat next to when working on my book and had coffee with members of my family. When you come up the stairs from the outside, you enter a minimalist world of white and beige that invites calmness.

Located in the exciting section of Buenos Aires called Palermo Soho, the apartment provides easy access to what tenants would need. The gym is only a couple of blocks away, the supermarket just one. And in a couple of minutes by foot or taxi, a person can reach world-class restaurants, fascinating shops, bakeries, and patisseries, and unique ice-cream stores. In our last day, my two sons and I sauntered through the lovely streets with sadness about our departure.

My only concern that I discussed with the owner before choosing this apartment was the potential for noise coming from the Cabrerra Steakhouse below. On the whole, this was not a problem at all, and I say this as a light sleeper. In a month’s stay I experienced just two noisy nights and this from the bar next door. But this would not prevent me from returning to the apartment or from providing it with my highest recommendation.

This apartment, in the center of BA's bohemian shopping, dining and strolling district is chic, spacious and comfortable. My wife and I shared the property with another couple during a week's visit to the city. We all appreciated the spacious bedrooms and stylish bathrooms. The high-ceilinged living room was modern, newly furnished and very comfortable. Its adjoining, Moroccan-style patio was perfect for a pre-dinner drink, a foot-soak after a day of walking or an afternoon snooze. The kitchen was well-appointed; we enjoyed breakfasts at home and a nice evening BBQ. The owner was very helpful in organizing our days and offering recommendations for off-the-beaten-track restaurants and clubs. We would definitely return to this property and have already recommended it to a few friends, all of whom have thanked us for a great, "in the know" tip.

I will be returning to this one! Location is was absoluely perfect... the center of Palermo Soho with the added bonus of being on top of one of BsAs' best restaurants La Cabrera.

The property is very spacious - (4) of us we were able to relax in the sun, cook dinners in house and enjoy wine in the wading pool. Bathrooms and kitchen are well appointed (washer and dryer too)!

I could go on but just know that you will not be dissapointed. Also, this property is owned by an american so we were able to chat freely before arrival.
