RECOLETA WITH HISTORY AND ELEGANCE (2,200 SQ FEET)

Recoleta Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Relive the history of Buenos Aires only 5 blocks from today’s Recoleta village. In 1894, when the country of Argentina was one of the wealthiest in the world with strong European ties, a Frenchman built this elegant residence on Calle Juncal. You can still feel the old world ambiance in the building’s beautiful church-like façade, tall ceilings, and architectural features, but you can also enjoy modern conveniences like a renovated 'American style' kitchen. This large three bedroom apartment (over 200 square meters or 2,200 square feet) has a large master suite with king size bed, walk-in closet and separate bath, shower and toilet areas. There is a second smaller loft bedroom (with 2 twin beds) with its own bathroom with shower. A fully equipped office/study with television, DVD player, broadband internet access and wi-fi connection is tucked into a loft with skylight off the master bedroom. (There is also a very small bedroom (with bed slightly smaller than a twin) and bath in what was formerly the maid’s quarters which could accommodate a 5th person for a brief stay.) Recently renovated by the same architect who did the Art Hotel, the apartment features 15 foot ceilings in the living and dining areas and master bedroom. The apartment also contains some antiques and features art work by several local artists which we encourage you to discover and enjoy as much as we have. With each trip we make, we add to our collection of Argentine art in the apartment.

The apartment has its own private, elegant entrance with marble stairs up to the second floor (considered the 1st floor in Argentina - but there is NO elevator). World class restaurants, cafes, and gourmet grocery and wine shops are all in the neighborhood and within easy walking distance. Two blocks away you can enjoy the café lined Plaza Mitre for an early morning coffee before setting out into one of the most walkable cities in the world; three blocks in the other direction, you’ll find a Metro stop on Avenida Santa Fe. And with the apartment's central location in the city, everything Buenos Aires has to offer is a short taxi ride away.

Please note on some days when we have a guest checking in and out on the same day, the maid will not always finish the cleaning until 4pm, but you may checkin earlier on this understanding.

Bookings are not confirmed until the deposit has been received.

I fell in love with Buenos Aires and bought this beautiful apartment in the historic and charming area of Recoleta. You can share some of the excitement and interest I discovered by renting this truly unique and beautifully furnished home away from home (greater than 2,200 Sq foot) apartment yourself.

Hamish purchased this apartment in 2009

I think Buenos Aires is the most vibrant cosmopolitan city in South America. Recoleta is probably the best known part of Buenos Aires with everyone wanting to visit the famous cemetery just a few blocks away from my apartment.

Loads of fabulous restaurants, coffee shops, supermarkets and art galleries are nearby and you are close to public transport to the city via bus or subway (subte). The popular shopping precinct of Santa Fe ave, is just a 5 minute stroll from the apartment. You are surrounded by beautiful architecture on every corner.

PERFECT!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a perfect stay at this wonderful apartment. We were five (Me, my husband, two kids ages 8 and 4 and my mother). From the moment we walked in we felt surrounded by beauty and art and the place far exceeded our expectations. The furniture, objects, paintings, books, music, decoration were definitely chosen by someone who has an artistic soul. The location is terrific, there is a supermarket right behind the apartment off Puerreydon street, a wine store in the corner, and many places to buy flowers, fruits and vegetables. The apartment is walking distance from many attractions in Buenos Aires (Recoleta Cemetery, Ateneo Grand Splendid bookstore, Recoleta Cultural Center, Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, etc. It is also very easy and cheap to catch a cab in the street. The booking process was very simple and easy, communication with Hamish was great. Marcela was very helpful and kind. She arranged for our transportation to and from the airport with Ernesto who was a sweetheart helping us carrying our heavy luggage upstairs. We were greeted by Santiago who guided us through the place. We highly recommend this apartment, it made all the difference to this perfect stay in this lovely city. Thank you Hamish, Marcela, Santiago and Ernesto! We will definitely return!

A GREAT LOCATION AND GREAT APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
This was our 5th trip to Buenos Aires(BA) and our third apartment. We have always stayed in Recoleta. This apartment was in the best location and was perfect for us. We are a couple in our late 60's. The apartment is as described. It was very traditional and upscale. The kitchen had all the amenities we wanted. The living room was spacious and the balcony was big enough to see all the street sights while standing with a glass of wine. Lane loved the foyer and and we sat there each night with cheese and wine before going to dinner. The vanity off the foyer was very convenient The master bedroom was spacious and the master bathroom was very big with a separate room for the toilet and bidet. The shower was also separate and had great water pressure. A double sink with much counter space and a walk in closet made it even better, all tile and marble by the way. The 2nd bedroom is better suited for kids than us in that it is up a steep flight of stairs and has a low entrance. We did not use it and did not need it but it has it's own good size bath. Marcela, who greeted us with flowers and wine, was very helpful and knowledgeable and would have been more so, I'm sure, if we weren't so familiar with BA ourselves. She is definitely the best looking manager in BA. She arranged for our transportation to and from the airport with Ernesto which was flawless. There are wine stores, cheese shops and pastry shops in the neighborhood and a small restaurant with outdoor tables right outside the door. A grocery is right around the corner. If you like the sounds of the city, which we do, they are there but they go away as soon as you close the doors. Los Pinos on French is our favorite local restaurant and a new upscale one, El Burladero on Uriburu, was terrific. We were thinking this was our last trip to BA but based on this experience we plan now to return. If we return by ourselves we will rent here again definitely. We highly recommend it.

REAL BUENOS AIRES CHARM

  • 5 of 5
We are a party of 4 adults that stayed here for two weeks. This is what we were looking for and found with this wonderful apartment.
1. Character: We did not want a typical "cookie cutter" high rise apartment. This is a charming 2 story classical old Buenos Aires building that has been beautifully restored as the website photos show of the interior. The exterior is also beautiful.
2. Location: We made a point of finding close access to the subte and this location was about as good as it gets. We had everything we wanted within two blocks or less. There is a fantastic wine shop just steps from the front door. We found a very good bakery, a large grocery store, small neighborhood market, good restaurants and laundry service within a block or two.
3. The apartment is quite large, comfortable, good wifi, well equipped and beautiful.
4. Assistance: Marcela speaks good English and is very helpful. She arranged to have Ernesto pick up & drop off at the airport. He is just wonderful.

THIS IS THE A BEAUTIFUL, SECURE HOME IN THE BEST NEIGHBORHOOD IN B.A.

  • 5 of 5
I chose this apartment from the pictures, description, and reviews--so I felt compelled to add another excellent rating to this beautiful property and the people who own and manage it. It is not just the outstanding location and immaculate, modern and comfortable accommodation that make it a destination vacation...it is the also the people. Hamish, the owner, is so easy to communicate with and keeps up with any concerns and he's great to work with. More importantly, the property manager, Marcela, is the best concierge I have ever had the pleasure to meet in an apartment rental. She is accessible via phone and email for any reservations or car service requests and extremely organized and efficient at your arrival, throughout your stay, and departure. Marcela told us about restaurants, laundry service, and made us feel very connected to the area--like a friend. Also important was the fact that the kitchen is fully equipped and we had a 5 course meal served with paired wines and had plenty of pots, pans, dishes, wine glasses, and more. There are plenty of towels, linens and tour books so don't bring your own if you don't want to carry excess. Enjoyable and wonderful property that we will return to as soon as possible. I highly recommend a stay at this apartment and if you want groceries set up in your apt. prior to arrival, Marcela will take care of that as well. Loved our stay!

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in this beautiful apartment far exceeded our expectations. Marcela greeted us with flowers and wine ---I was in awe of the space from the moment I walked through the door, The location is perfect---walking distance to wonderful shopping, as well as, many of the leading sites in the city. Anything else you would like to see in Buenos Aires is only a short cab ride away. The apartment is filled with beautiful contemporary art by local artists---Hamish's taste in art is excellent:-) The apartment was recently repainted and the floors were refinished so you really felt like you were in a brand new apartment that just happened to have gorgeous old world architectural charm. Even though the street is lively---as in any other major city---the apartment is quite peaceful. The master bedroom located in the back of the apartment was a haven for us after a long day exploring the city---large, romantic and very comfortable and very quiet. Marcela, who was our "go to" person in Buenos Aires made our trip extra special. She recommended fabulous restaurants for us, handled all our dinner reservations and helped us navigate the city---making sure that we made the most of the seven days in Buenos Aires. Our trip would have been very different without her (thank you, Marcela!). Looking forward to our next visit.

WE CAN'T WAIT TO COME BACK

We can't wait to come back
  • 5 of 5
What a great apartment in such a fantastic location. Recoleta was great to get lost in walking and window shopping along the way. We felt completely safe here and the apartment is all we could have hoped for. Fabulous artworks and the private entrance to the marble floor entrance hall off the lounge /dining room made us feel very special. We could hardly believe all this space was ours. Great KS bed in the main bedroom . Didn't get to use the TV much but the study area with work table and fast internet was great for skypeing back home. Marcela made us feel welcome and suggested some great places to explore and eat out. Very professional service that made us feel like coming back.

For great shopping. From the apartment walk down Juncal and over Pueyrredon for about 7 blocks until you get to Avenue Coronel Diaz. Turn left towards Ave Santa Fe and in 3 blocks your will come to Alto Palermo Shopping Center. The best value things to buy are from the local Argentine shops and chains rather than the international brands.
