Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi, Ruben

Bob and I wanted to thank you for taking such good care of us on our recent visit to Buenos Aires.

Right from the moment we met your at the airport your knowledge of the city and its history enhanced our visit.

We especially enjoyed the day we spent with you touring the city using public transport. Lunch at the local restaurant was a highlight. Our comfort with the bus and subway system after that day really allowed us the freedom to tour the city on our own.

The tango show and the river cruise were both wonderful. We appreciated your help in arranging the tours.

The apartment was wonderful. It allowed us to spend some wonderful time with the kids that just wouldn't have been possible if we had rented hotel rooms. San Telmo was wonderful - the Sunday market, the area restaurants were highlights of our stay.

Thanks for your time and great care while we were in Buenos Aires.

Bob & Vivian

Beautiful bright and open apartment in San Telmo.

  • 5 of 5

Reuben is a fantastic concierge for your stay at this San Telmo home. Reuben has all the information you need to start your stay and he can arrange for anything you want or need while in Buenos Aires, from airport transfers to tango to a visit to an estancia. The apartment is very comfortable, the location in San Telmo is great and the owner, Janet Chisholm, is easy to work with to arrange your stay. Once you are in BA, Reuben can guide you for any request. Our group of 3 couples had a wonderful stay.

Perfect San Telmo Apartment, with great management

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this well-located and exceptionally well managed apartment. Our son said the apartment was one of his favorite parts of our trip to BA. The apartment is well described in owner's description. The high ceiling and natural light gave an open feeling to common areas.

Janet, the owner, was great to work with. She responded quickly to everything and we got our deposit back without any difficulty.

On local manager, Ruben, is a treasure! In addition to meeting us at the unit, he arranged airport transfers, made useful suggestions about money exchange and tango shows. When we asked about a cooking class he offered to give us one, as he is a also a chef (or a really good cook - not sure which). He taught us to make empanadas, the entree to our meal, and then made a steak and veg dinner for us, with explanations along the way. His meal was so delicious and the evening so fun that we asked him to cook for us another time, and it was even more delicious. When we thought we had a problem (with hot water - we didn't, our error) he responded immediately. What finally made us decide to stay at this property was Ruben. I had stayed at another property he manages previously, and knew how good he is. If we return to BA, we'll return to this property. Only the best!

Wonderful Apartment in San Telmo

  • 5 of 5

Our group of three stayed in this beautiful San Telmo apartment prior to our dove hunting trip in Cordoba. Everything is walking distance...The huge market Sunday on Defensa was only a block away and we ate at two of the best steak restaurants in the area (Gran Parilla Del Plata and La Brigada) both within walking distance. The apartment's WiFi was great and we were all able to receive our emails and communicate with work/home while being gone; It was also nice with the Vonage line which allowed us to call back home when needed. Ruben, their local contact, was a wonderful help and he gave us a great overview and even helped us exchange our USD for Pesos. The owners are easy to work with and very flexible as we had to check in early and check out late to make this work! Highly Recommended - I will use them when I come back with my wife for a BA visit.

Simpy the BEST.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of three business men enjoyed an amazing 10 days from 30 August to 8 September. Janet could not have been more accommodating to our schedule and so very helpful in getting arrangements and details worked out. The place was everything that was promised and more. So many thoughtful details (110 volt, washer and dryer, larger refrigerator, dish washer, lots of hot water, wiFi, Vonage to call clients and home etc.). The location is fantastic to get to transportation as well as the market (Quilmes 6.9, cheese, fresh fruit and vegetables), amazing food, beverages, coffee etc. etc. are all around. The balcony is a great perch to sit and watch the goings on of the neighborhood each evening after our days of travel throughout BA. It was always our location to enjoy appetizers before going out (sociably late) for dinner at local restaurants eating the best rib eye ever and drinking the best red wines and visiting with locals.

And the added bonus is of course Ruben. We had him fix a meal for us one night and take us to the best steak house in town on another. To be honest, Ruben beat the steakhouse for the most amazing meal. The combination of a meal never to be forgotten and his remarkable knowledge of South America makes for evenings of lively conversation and a much greater depth to your travel experience. Don’t miss the opportunity to have at least one private dinner by Ruben and do it early in your stay because you will likely want to do it again. Ruben steered us to the best leather shops to get gifts for our wives (the European leather in the best shops is amazing and resulted in many smiles upon our return). Also the places for empanadas, pasta and even travel to Colonia (and what to look for while there). He also was incredibly helpful with money exchange (best rates anywhere).

In short the combination of a great place to stay, exceptional personal assistance and the current exchange rate made for the most amazing stay. We’ll be back with family and friends in the future!

Excellent Location and More

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six adults spent two weeks living in this lovely apartment. It occupies the top floor and is quiet and spacious. High ceilings and equally high windows fill the living space with light. We cooked dinners in the kitchen and dined at the dining room table. The fireplace provided warmth and plenty of seating when we returned from adventures in the cool of the Buenos Aires winter. Each couple also had their own bedroom and bathroom so privacy was easily guaranteed. The apartment had everything we needed, including blow dryers and an iron.

The location is excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed living in San Telmo. The neighborhood has restaurants both for coffee or lunch and for excellent dinners. The best meals we had in the city were in restaurants within easy walking distance from the apartment. It is also very close to Porto Madero where some of us walked and some ran every morning without the worry caused by traffic. San Telmo contains antique shops, museums, a wonderful market, grocery stores, and all that we needed for our everyday needs.

Finally, we rented the apartment largely because the reviews noted the assistance of Ruben. None of us speak Spanish and were a bit nervous about that. Ruben was actually out of the country during our stay. His substitute, Andy, was fabulous. He not only answered every question, helped us arrange travel outside of the city, accompanied us on those travels when we requested, but he also listened carefully to our individual interests and help us explore those. The owner was also tremendously helpful as we planned for the trip and was clearly invested in our having a successful trip.

Amazing apartment and host

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this beautiful San Telmo apartment during our recent trip to Buenos Aires. The unit is very well equipped with everything you need and fit our party of six more than comfortably. Even better than the apartment was the assistance and hospitality of Ruben. From the moment Ruben picked us up at the airport he ensured all our needs were met. In addition to the providing transportation and setting up tickets for shows, Ruben gave us an amazing tour of the City using the public transportation system. Not only did this tour provide us the tools to navigate the city on our own during the rest of our stay, but due to Ruben's incredible wealth of knowledge about Argentina we recived an in depth history lesson along the way. I couldn't have asked for a better trip and would recommend the combination of this apartment and Ruben to anyone planning a trip to Buenos Aires.
