Montserrat Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Legendary French Building with 4 Bedrooms and 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our apartment provides a one of a kind experience in Buenos Aires. It is over 3,500 square feet and comfortably sleeps 8. The apartment occupies the entire 5th floor of a renowned French turn of the century building. Everything has been completely updated including stainless steel appliances, marble / wood surfaces throughout, and custom Roche Bobois furnishings imported from Europe. Our building was designed by the famed Alvear Palace architect and is very much celebrated and photographed. We are a short 3 block walk to Alvear Avenue with exclusive shops such as Cartier, Louis Vuitton, Escada, and Armani.

We have a custom dining table that seats 20-30 and a reclining Roche Bobois leather sofa that seats 15. Also included is a custom billiards table, WiFi, and Ipod dock. We have a Wii game system with dedicated television, 2 additional large plasma screen televisions with cable, and an extensive DVD library. We have two dedicated phone lines in the apartment. One is used exclusively for local calls and the other provides free Vonage access to the United States and Europe.

The large shared rooftop terrace with cupola is truly spectacular. It seats up to 20 and is covered in beautiful plantings. The tiered levels offer amazing views of the city. It has a parilla or grill available for your convenience. This is a fabulous spot to enjoy an evening cocktail and entertain guests. This is truly s unique feature in the heart of Buenos Aires.

We have two elevators that serve our floor. One is exclusively for residents and guests. The other is used by service and delivery personnel, but is still available for guest use. Every manner of food and service delivery is available including premium gelato (packaged with dry ice), beautifully presented sushi, gourmet salads, morning and afternoon coffee and tea service with accompaniments, personally selected grocery items, same day laundry service, and floral arrangements. Even fast food such as late night empanadas and pizza are readily available. For particular young diners, even McDonalds and Burger King can be delivered directly to your service entrance.

A twice weekly maid service with linen change is included along with welcome ammenites such as Nespresso coffee, milk, waters, juices, wine, snacks from local shops, and toletries. Basically, everything you need to begin your Buenos Aires experience is provided. The bed linens are 500 thread count and towels are by Ralph Lauren.

Our area is surrounded by wonderful world class restaurants and vendors of all types - fresh seafood, organic beef / chicken / pork, patisseries, delicatessans, vegetable stands, flower stalls, etc. Everything imaginable is within a five minute walk including a beautiful park with walking trail and children's play equipment.

Our apartment is simply one of the very best in Buenos Aires. We are located within a 5-10 minute walk of the world renowned Recoleta cemetery, Park Hyatt Palacio Duhau, Four Seasons, The Alvear Palace and the official Vatican residence. The hotel properties mentioned typically start at $500 + tax per night for a double room. The value and amenities offered by our exclusive property are simply not available elsewhere.

Please feel free to request additional photos and details concerning the apartment.

About Lucy Jones

We are a professional couple in our 40's with two sons ages 14 and 15. We are avid travelers and own homes in the USA, Argentina, and Uruguay.

Lucy Jones purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Lucy Jones chose Buenos Aires

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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. Buenos Aires is a fabulous city and you couldn't find a better place to stay. Thanks for everything!
