This converted warehouse in the Palermo Soho neighbourhood is a unique Buenos Aires rental. Spread between a 3 bedroom main house and a detatched 1 bedroom flat, it boasts 3900 sf. of indoor living area, as well as a large private outdoor courtyard and decked pool area. It has been renovated in a modern, mediteranean style, with high ceilings and wooden floorboards throughout.
The ground floor of the main house is a 2300 sq.ft combined living and kitchen area with 17ft high ceilings. This space is made up of an open-plan kitchen with outdoor argentine style “parrilla” barbecue at the back. In front of the 20 ft long cooking island, is a glass-topped dining table with space and settings for 12 people. The rest of the downstairs area consists of a central games section with a convertible pool/table-tennis table, and a television area made up of a 27ft U-shaped goose-down sofa facing a column-mounted 55-inch LED flatscreen display with DVD player and digital TV. There is also a downstairs guest bathroom located under the stairs.
The three bedrooms are located upstairs. The master suite is located at the back of the house and includes a custom made “King”-sized double bed, personal television and Bose Ipod/CD/Radio system; and is illuminated by a 12ft electric skylight and wall-length windows that give onto an internal patio/garden area. The en-suite bathroom features a square, tiled jacuzzi bath and rain style shower, and a large wash area with two sinks and two large mirrors. The bathroom also has a large walk-in closet, and another is located in the bedroom area. The other two bedrooms face toward the courtyard/pool area at the front of the house; both have personal televisions and are en-suite with combined shower/baths. The first bedroom contains 1 custom made “Queen”-sized double bed and the other contains 2, with room for up to 4 guests.
The separate flat at the front of the house is reached by a metal staircase from the pool area. It includes a double bed and personal television, a private kitchen and en-suite bathroom with bath/shower combination.
Other features include an electrically opening garage for one car and an office area on the first floor with desk and printer. The whole house is covered by high-speed wi-fi internet, the bedrooms include the highest quality linen, towels and bathrobes, and all the televisions are connected to local cable with high-definition channels.
I had a great time. Buenos Aires is a "Bella" city! La pase muy bien. La casa y los Argentinos son estupendos.
This place is the perfect place for a large party, an elegant gathering, a private get away. It is centrally located within easy walking distance to everything in Palermo Soho. Very secure; very private. The pool is wonderful and private. There is a separate apartment so two couples could have separate spaces but there are three wonderful bedrooms in the main house. The kitchen, bbq, and WIFI were top notch. Martin, the concierge, is absolutely incredible. He arranged everything for us--including limo rides back and forth. There is a money exchanger, grocery store, and everything else easily within the area of the house. Would absolutely recommend this place....SOOOO elegant!
We had a hell of a good time here. The common room is huge (the size of a basketball court) the beds are comfortable. We had 10 people for 5 nights and never felt like we were cramped.
If you're going to rent it - take the whole thing - guest house and main house. The pool really caps everything off and heats up to be an extra large jacuzzi.
The location is killer - only a few blocks from the heart of Palermo. You can catch a cab on the corner (50ft outside the front door) at all hours with no wait.
The property managers and maid were professional and flexible, checking in to see how they could improve our stay. I can't wait to come back!
Our daughter was married in Buenos Aires last November and over 40 of our family and friends came from the States to celebrate this happy occasion. We made the Alvarez house our "home base" and a meeting place for many of our out of town guests, for the days leading up to the wedding. The location of the house is so central and easy to get to, such that people could just drop in for a drink or a meal. As well, the house is so spacious that different activities can be happening in different parts of the house at the same time. The house is beautifully furnished and well maintained and extremely comfortable for staying in as well as for entertaining guests. We are especially grateful for the excellent services provided by Martin before we arrived, as he was always responsive to our email inquiries and helped us with numerous logistics, including transportation, reservations at restaurants, tickets for soccer game etc. We would highly recommend this house, especially if you want a gathering place for more people.
We very much enjoyed the house and found the location excellent. The facilities were clean and the amenities - pool table, pool, bar, etc.. were fantastic. Martin was exceptionally helpful and his guidance gave us insight into the city that we couldn't have gleaned elsewhere. Great visit, great location, and great house to stay.
I stayed here with my family in December. It was a last minute decision as other accommodation had fallen through for our time in BA. We are so happy that things panned out the way they did and we got to stay in this amazing house! The pictures really don't do it justice, it's very spacious and was the perfect base. It was a great house to hang out in, the pool table and table tennis were great! Martin was very helpful and prompt to all of our questions and Laura who cleaned was amazing. We would recommend this to all of our friends and would definitely stay here again when we are back in wonderful BA!
We have been to Buenos Aires' Palermo district three times in the last three years, and this was definitely the best place we have stayed!
The pictures of this place make it seem almost too good to be true (we've been mildly disappointed by VRBO pics making places look nicer than they are in a couple cases), but this is definitely not the case with this listing! The main house is HUGE! Our group of about 10 people rented both the main house and the guest house.
My husband and I stayed in the master bedroom - it has two walk in closets, a comfortable king size bed, and a lovely master bathroom with sky lights provided wonderful natural light. The master bath shower is REALLY nice, and has about a foot deep jacuzzi tub. (that is the only picture that we misinterpreted - the pic of the hot tub while full makes it hard to tell how deep it is. :) )
We didn't use the outdoor pool, as it was way too cold - at the time of our stay it was fall, but someone came to clean out flower petals and leaves once during our stay.
The location is great - only a few blocks away from great restaurants and shopping on Honduras, and two weekend Ferias on Honduras and Armenia. Also, the pizzeria/empanaderia on El Salvador and Julian Alvarez less than a block away has FABULOUS empanadas!!!
The property was clean and well maintained. Martin, the caretaker/manager was very helpful! We had him recommend a chef to prepare a traditional Argentina meal on the outdoor parilla - HIGHLY recommended!! We had a party of about 20 people for this meal, and the downstairs had plenty of room for everyone.
About 10 blocks away are a couple of our favorite restaurants in Palermo - La Cabrera and Don Julio, both Argentine steak houses. (the incredible Argentine steak is one of the main reasons we keep coming back! :) )
If you have a larger group, do not hesitate to rent this amazing property!!! :)
