Recoleta Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This fully furnished one-bedroom, one-bath, corner apartment was purchased from a former Argentine ambassador. It has been completely remodeled with an emphasis on style and comfort. Unique in that every room has a fabulous view.

One of the outstanding features of this spacious Buenos Aires pied-a-terre is the spectacular view of the world famous Recoleta cemetery - the final resting place of Evita Peron. A walk through these opulent, above ground monuments is a tour of the rich and famous of Argentine history. Your apartment's ninth-floor view extends beyond Recoleta to the River Plate and the distant Uruguay.

Located in the cultural center of Buenos Aires, you are surrounded by sidewalk cafes, top quality restaurants, clubs, bookstores, boutiques, parks and theatres - one block from Recoleta Village Entertainment Center, two blocks from the Buenos Aires Design Center, near the National Museum of Fine Arts. A walk across the park, which hosts the city's foremost weekly art fair, will land you on Avenida Alvear - the most celebrated, upscale, shopping area in Buenos Aires. While in the heart of this bustling cultural center, the 9th floor location affords a peaceful night's sleep.

About Valerie

While I have been working off and on in Buenos Aires for more than 10 years, I brought my husband, Jim, here for the first time in 2003. Right around the time when the Euro was going up against the dollar. We were looking for a replacement for our European vacations that were costing us more and more.

Valerie purchased this condo in 2004

Why Valerie chose Recoleta

We wanted to own an apartment in a major city that didn't require us to drive - a walking city, with good mass transportation or inexpensive taxis. It needed to have great architecture, style, art, music...and of course, incredible food.

We found Buenos Aires to have all this and more...and at a much lower cost than Europe. Like New York or Paris, every neighborhood is a new adventure.

We love the sidewalk cafes, the weekend art fairs, biking through the parks of Palermo. And while we always heard the steaks were great, no one ever told us about the homemade pasta...incredible.

Impressive!

  • 5 of 5
The views from this condo were superb especially at night! The contemporary condo
gave us all the comforts we needed while in Buenos Aires. The place is in the heart of both historical and cultural parts of the city. It is also surrounded by many restaurants and
other recreational sites. It was an awesome stay altogether.

6 stars

  • 5 of 5
If I could give this place 6 stars, I would.

Stars 1, 2 and 3: Location, location, location. I mean... look at the picture from the balcony...full view of the Recoleta Cemetery. Right around the block from the condo are tons of eating places, fun to drop into a chair after a long day of sightseeing. There is also a 3 story shopping mall in one block. A small grocery store in the same block as the building. Super safe area of BA. It had WiFi so we could connect with folks at home.

Star 4: The helpfulness of the owner. From beginning booking to the end of our month's stay, Valerie was so helpful with recommendations where to shop, eat, visit, etc. She even sent us a 15 page "fact filled" info packet about Argentina, BA, traveling to other countries.

Star 5: The apartment manager. One day I needed help with my door lock...quick as a flash, the manager had a locksmith there and I was inside in no time.

Star 6: The apartment itself: It had to have been recently renovated...granite countertops, eating bar, etc. The condo complex has a person living onsite who manages the building.

If this Condo has one drawback (and it's really, really minor), it is that it is a long way from a Subte station. We didn't think this a problem as taxis are very inexpensive and were always available.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the beautiful review. A delight to host you. Good news they are building a subway station near the apartment. Bad news...no telling how long that will take. It is Argentina. Hope you come back soon.

Best View and Secure Building

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful unit in a very secure building! you need a key to get in or out of entrance and entry gate. The unit is quiet yet you can still feel the vibrant city vibe with amazing views of the Cemetery! You feel like you are sleeping with Eva Peron! she is that close...haha
Unit was efficient, fully equipped, clean, secure and comfortable. Just bring your toothbrush!

Recoleta Excellence

  • 5 of 5
Couldn't have been a better location or a nicer apartment no matter what. The location is ideal--the perfect spot to walk, to grab a taxi, to stop for a quick bite or a leisurely meal. Walking distance to most everything in Recoleta and literally next door to Recoleta Cemetery. Whether you want the mall or the cemetery or the best ice cream in the world, it's an easy walk from this apartment. One bedroom apartment with a "bonus" murphy bed; easily sleeps 2 and would be just fine for a slightly larger group too. Well-appointed, comfortable, easy in and out, very secure, really a very nice space. VIEWS to die for---views directly into Recoleta Cemetery from the bedroom and living room. A little creepy at first, I suppose, but an amazing view that was more interesting each and every day. A quiet spot, 9th floor high above street noise, and tucked away in the corner of the building so no hallway noise either. Kitchen's great--we cooked breakfast each morning (a small grocery store downstairs and a large one about 4 or 5 blocks away, an easy 4 or 5 blocks) and everything we needed was right where we thought it should be. Best communication ever from Valerie, the owner, and the on-site manager was very helpful and available. They arranged airport pick-up for us and transportation back as well--both trips were on time, professional, rationally priced, and easy to access. All in all, a great visit to this apartment. It's set up perfectly, very welcoming and comfortable with no issues at all.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment, one of many we have stayed at in Buenos Aires, is perfect. The location is ideal, close to great sights, dining and activities, and the views from the apartment are really one of a kind. It's great to look out and see something more than traffic or another wall, the views of the Recoleta cemetery and the River Plata, the port, the part, it's great. I am not a big one for shopping, but this is a great location. We are here to work, and the set up in the living room, with space for wifi and computer, sofa, tables, and the open kind, is ideal. Valerie has been wonderfully helpful all the way along, and it was seamless getting here. I looked at both of the apartments, similar, but each with its own style, both nice. I'll be back at the end of the year with colleagues, and I plan to rent both apartments so we can be across the hall from each other and I'll know everyone will be comfortable. So nice getting here and having coffee and supplies on the shelves, I really needed that cup of coffee after the flight. Now - time to go to the market around the corner and grab an empanada!

Perfect location. Fantastic accommodation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here in late December 2012, into January 2013. The apartment is very comfortable with a wonderful balcony. The apartment has everything you need, and there is a grocery store right next door for all your needs. The apartment and building is very clean and quiet. There is staff on hand if you need anything. Very safe and secure, in a very nice area.
There are tons of restaurants, shopping, markets, parks and attractions. I would stay here every time I come here. No complaints at all. The owners, Valerie and Jim truly go above and beyond to make sure all your needs are met. I very highly recommend this rental. Thank you again Valerie for a wonderful visit to Buenos Aires!!
