20 foot tall ceilings in Living & Dining areas. Classic historic architecture
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. I also own great properties in Thailand (Pattaya) and Australia (Melbourne) for rental and you can find them all on HomeAway.
Hamish purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Hamish chose Recoleta
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. You can practically walk everywhere in this central part of BA and just soak up the wonderful vibrant atmosphere and amazing architecture.
What makes this Apartment unique
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) is 300 meters. There are buses within 25 meters of the front door. The popular shopping precinct of Santa Fe ave is just a 5 minute stroll from the apartment. You are surrounded by beautiful classic Buenos Aires architecture on every corner.

We had a wonderful time staying in Recoleta. The home was set-up wonderfully. They thought of everything a traveler might need. Beautifully spacious and no street noise. Beautiful and historic. Close to all the places you want to see. Subt is a few blocks aways, grocery store around the corner and great cafes abound. Hamish was a wonderful and thoughtful host. Best place to stay!!!!
Great Location, Huge Apartment, Very Comfortable.
The apartment was perfect for our family. Plenty of room. Plenty of bathrooms. Great location. Easy access to the entire city by taxi, bus, or subway. We used a taxi the most since they are so plentiful and affordable. The majority of the taxi rides were under 100 pesos which is about $5. We would definitely come back and my mother who lives in Buenos Aires will be recommending this to all of her out of town guests.
Hamish's home is beautiful and the Recoleta is a great neighborhood from which to explore the city. BA City Apartments was great - they provided transportation to the airport and gave us an introduction to the apartment on the first day.
Good location, spacious home
We enjoyed our stay here. The home is very nice, and had everything we needed. The location was good and allowed walking everywhere. There are restaurants, shopping, grocery stores within easy walking.
Our only challenge was with the internet, and since we were on a working vacation, we rely on good, relatively fast internet connection. Some days I had to walk down to Starbucks to get work done. Otherwise, this was a great place to stay during our short visit to Buenos Aires.
Jane was a great guest and it was gracious of her to seek out alternative internet access during her stay when ours went on the blink. Since Jane visited I have personally replaced the entire internet hardware in the apartment with the latest mesh wifi technology from Asus called Lyra. There are now 3 x wifi Lyra mesh transmitters located strategically throughout the apartment and the speed and through put is fast and reliable.
Great location to all the sights and very large apartment to rent. Hamish made the vacation easy and stress free! Large supermarket nearby / wine stores / restaurants / all made for a once in a lifetime vacation for us!
A little bit of Paris in the heart of Buenos Aires
Once in a while, you have the good fortune to come across a really exceptional apartment. This is one of them. Centrally located in beautiful Recoleta, this sophisticated rental boasted 20 foot ceilings, French doors onto a balcony, a large master bedroom and a chic and comfortable decor. Super friendly staff serviced the apartment and the neighborhood was packed with wonderful shops and specialty food stores. (Plus the owners leave you lists of all their favorite restaurants and vendors. )Will definitely rent again when we return to Buenos Aires!
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.
