Overview

Buenos Aires Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Great location in central Palermo! This gorgeous apartment in a mid-century classic French building has many updates and decorative touches that will make your visit to Buenos Aires enjoyable and comfortable. The Botanical Gardens, Las Heras Park, Alto Palermo, Palermo Soho, Palermo Hollywood and Recoleta are all within walking distance.

The apartment is just one block to the subway and buses and taxis are at your doorstep. New double glazed windows bring in the sun while ensuring that you have a calm oasis to return home to. The two modern bathrooms—both remodeled in the last ten years--sport a bathtub with rain head shower in one and a large shower stall with double shower heads in the other. The modern kitchen features a full size fridge, a gas stove with electric convection oven, microwave and all the necessary cookware, dishes and glassware to make you feel comfortable. This apartment features Wifi, televisions in both bedrooms and a mini component radio/CD player. You’ll think you’ve never left home.

You’ll feel very much the “porteno” as you step out of this beautiful building onto the broad boulevard of an upper middle-class Buenos Aires neighborhood.'

About Robert Osika

I have travelled extensively and fell in love with Buenos Aires. The city is vibrant and exciting with lots to see and do and great restaurants. I always tell everyone I was attracted to this city for the 'portenos' - Argentines are very friendly and accomodating.

Robert Osika purchased this condo in 2006

Why Robert Osika chose Buenos Aires

I loved the location of this apartment. You feel like you are living amongst the Argentines. The neighborhood is vibrant and lively and filled with sidewalk bars, cafes, "restos" and the streets are lined with bakeries, green grocers, deli's, flower vendors, pasta shops....everything at your doorstep!

What makes this condo unique

I totally renovated this property after I bought it and tried to refurbish it to North American Standards. The kitchen is equipped with a full size fridge/freezer, a gas stove with and electric convection oven, microwave and all the utensils, dishes, appliances and pots to make you stay comfortable. The windows facing the street have been replaced with double glazed windows to reduce noise to a minimum, making this apartment a quiet oasis.

Lovely apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed in this well appointed, comfortable apartment in Palermo which is very close to subway stations, supermarkets, restaurants and cafes. It proved to be a great base for our trip. The apartment is difficult to fault. The beds were extermely comfortable, the TV excellent, the kitchen functional and a good size, plenty of hot water for showers, a washing machine, two bathrooms and a lift up to the third floor. The owner was also very pleasant and responsive to deal with, so we would highly recommend staying there.

Was really our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The owner was fantastic, had a car waiting for us at the airport to take us "home" to a bottle of Malbec, fresh fruit, and a fabulous condo. Our owner had all details covered so that we could move right in with no worries. The apt was very clean with all comforts, including a large walk in shower. Location was fabulous. Our landlord was the best!

Great central location in Buenos Aires

  • 5 of 5

My wife, father-in-law and I all visited Buenos Aires for a week in November. Robert, the owner, met us and was wonderful. He provided us with maps, information, tips on how to enjoy our stay in Buenos Aires. His area knowledge was critical for us since this was my first trip to Buenos Aires. He was literally available to us 24/7. The apt was great as advertised 2 bed/2 bath. Very clean and very near cafes and grocery and bars and restaurants. Even though the apt is in the middle of town there was minimal noise and we slept well. Robert provided great tips for tour guides and places to visit as well as how to navigate the Argentine currency. We had a great stay and would recommend this apt to anyone visiting Buenos Aires.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Perfekt läge mellan Palermo och Recoleta! Våningen är i perfekt skick, väl utrustad och smakfullt inredd. Vår värd Robert gjorde allt för att bidra till en lyckad vistelse. Han höll kontakt med oss för att försäkra sig om att vi hade det bra, rekommenderade aktiviteter och gav vägledande information. Vi fick också tips om mycket bra flygplatstransfer. I omgivningen finns allt man kan behöva, butiker, bagerier, restauranger, och kommunikationer.

Charm y estilo en pleno Palermo

  • 5 of 5

Nos quedamos dos semanas en este departamento (ideal para una familia tipo) a medidos de Julio, donde pudimos constatar que los comentarios previos le hacen justicia. Situado en pleno Palermo y rodeado de cafés, restaurants y negocios, el departamento ha sido completamente renovado y luce fantástico, incluyendo dos modernos baños completos y una cocina que ofrece todo lo necesario. El dormitorio principal tiene una cama "King" (a diferencia de las camas dobles que uno encuentra habitualmente en varios alquileres ofrecidos) y dos amplios placares, mientras que el segundo dormitorio tiene dos cómodas camas que se prestaron a la perfección para nuestros hijos de 15 y 12 años de edad. Tanto Robert (el dueño) como Carmen (la encargada local) son excepcionales anfitriones, corteses y serviciales. Hemos viajado constantemente a Buenos Aires por muchos años y tenemos que reconocer que éste ha sido el mejor lugar en donde nos hemos quedado, y en un futuro viaje volveríamos a alquilarlo sin dudar.

Charm, Location, and Style

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is definitely worthy of its great reviews. We stayed here for 2 weeks during mid July, 2015 and it was ideal for our family of 4. Located near many nice cafés , shops and the botanical gardens-the apartment is beautifully renovated with 2 full modern washrooms and a well equipped kitchen. The main bedroom features a full king size bed (unlike the usual double offered in many rentals), as well as ample closet space, and the additional bedroom has 2 comfortable beds which were perfect for our 12 and 15 year olds. Robert (the owner) and Carmen (the manager) are extremely gracious and accommodating. This is the best place we've stayed in Buenos Aires, where we've been coming for many years, and we will certainly try to rent it on another visit.
