Buenos Aires is a fabulous city. The culture, the parks, and the restaurants are just some of what drew us to Buenos Aires. We searched for two years before finally finding this gem of a property. The location, building, and apartment are truly fantastic. Buenos Aires is a very "walkable" city. Every manner of convenience is literally at your doorstep.
Access to the furnished rooftop terrace, barbecue grill / parilla, billiards and ping pong just to name a few. We also like to provide our guests with all of the essentials and some nice treats to make their stay delightful from beginning to end.
What a spectacular apartment. We could not have asked for a better stay. Owner was very easy to work with and left us with everything we needed to start our vacation.
You can't go wrong with this property. It is elegant, spacious, and truly a value for the superb location and amenities. The rooftop terrace with drinks on a summer evening is truly delightful. The owner could not have been more helpful with recommendations and information about the area. We had everything we needed for our stay.
