About Mike -

Successful entrepreneur that believes that you should live each day like it's your last. What would you do if you had 3 years to live? I would travel the world and see places and do things that most people only dream about.

I truly believe that you should be with the person you enjoy being with, you should visit the cities you've always dreamed of visiting and you should live in a city that you are passionate about. I found that most people complain about various aspects of their lives yet they do nothing to change it.

To me it's very simple. If you aren't happy with your partner you find another one. If you don't like your job - quit and find another one. If you don't like the city you are living in - move to another one that you like better. Life is what you make of it.

Most people lead very ordinary lives. They have an ordinary job, live in an ordinary house and do ordinary things. I found that if you want an extraordinary life you must do extraordinary things.

Mike - purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Mike - chose Buenos Aires

The property is perfect and the location doesn't get much better. You walk out the front door and you are 1 block from the Recoleta Shopping Mall. You are just blocks from the best hotels like the 5 star Alvear Palace Hotel.

Great restaurants, supermarkets, cafes, banks/ATMs and everything you would need are within blocks from this property.

The apartment is spacious and has ALL the comforts of home. It doesn't get more convenient then this!

Also, I own several properties in the same area in Recoleta if you are staying with family/friends and all want to be in the same area. I also own several properties in Palermo Soho and Palermo Hollywood so feel free to email me about those properties as well.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Very nice staff who professionally assisted in rental. We arranged the airport pickup and return after our two week stay and were very pleased. We would certainly stay with MikesBAapartments again and would consider this same property if available.

Great property and customer service.

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, centrally located near restaurants, tourists attractions and an upscale mall. We were received on time, everything worked (A/Cs, TV's, hot water) as expected. We dealt with a management company on the ground and with the owner were via email--both were very responsive.

Fabulous apartment and experience

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible trip I had in Buenos Aires. Amazing city, restaurants and culture. I'll definitely be back. This was my first trip to Buenos Aires and I noticed many of the nice hotels are in Recoleta. In fact the Alvear Palace hotel which is one of the swankiest hotels in town was just a few blocks from this apartment.

Booking was very easy. I had some questions about the area and the owner-Mike answered all my questions and more on the phone. He even suggested some restaurants he likes and they were amazing! (Try Sotto Voce on Libertador which is a few blocks from this apartment).

Everything was very close. This apartment location was incredible! You had an upscale shopping mall across the street, many restaurants, grocery stores within 2 blocks (there was a grocery store a few doors down). Everything stays open late in town!

The apartment was very comfortable. The mattress was amazingly comfortable and better than my bed at home! The shower was hot and very strong water pressure which I love. It was great to come back after a long day and come home to this apartment.

I'd recommend this property to any traveler coming to Buenos Aires.

Wonderful Experience with MikesBAapartments in Buenos Aires

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in Recoleta area of Buenos Aires, AR March 20 thru March 25, 2014. Planned our first trip to So. America last July. Originally booked a very nice hotel in central downtown area; however after researching my most trusted Travel advice site, it appeared it was not the area for us. Decided we would stay in Recoleta area. Further research lead to Mike's BA apartment.

First inquiry, Mike personally called me from U.S. residence. I booked condo/apt in center of Recoleta at avenue General Las Heras/Junin. Absolutely the right choice for us. We stayed in a modern,very clean, fully accommodating unit right in the center of Recoleta. We had scores of restaurants and sites within blocks. Very active and safe neighborhood. Recoleta Cemetery and Eva Peron's tomb were top on our list and only a block away!

Admit I was a little concerned, since this was the very first time after lots of travel not staying in a hotel. We were so well taken care of that our experience with Mike made this so much better. Especially enjoyed the "at home" freedom and comforts an apt gave us and all the ambiance such a large space provided. We had a full bath & half bath, 2 Tv's, full kitchen - coffee maker, etc., if needed, full detailed apt sop Guide and advisory booklet in apt, along with tourist books and maps. A grocery and pharmacy several doors away. Recoleta. Shopping Mall a block away. Hsbc ATM a block away.

This was a real value for us comparing the kind of hotel accommodations we would want & costs vs. these wonderful accommodations very good rate we paid. All of this made our visit wonderful, but the advice and the assistance Mike's provided was "icing on the cake" to the point of arranging very reasonable From & To airport trips, including a 4:15 a.m. wake-up call! Returning to Ba, we would want this same apt. Note, any travel, you take taxi's. Taxi rates are incredibly low vs. Europe and even USA.

Great apartment in great area

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very nice, very clean. The appliances were new and worked well. Mike and Jaime care a lot about their guests. Jaime even waited after we checked out until we got on our taxi to the airport. I am a "porteño" living abroad so I know that this is the best place of town to stay at. Only two blocks from recoleta cementery which is surrounded by parks! museums! nice cafés and restaurants.

Xcellent appartment, Xcellent location...

  • 5 of 5

My family, husband and 2 children, stayed at Mike's appartment for 3 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was excellent on Las Heras in Recoleta. There was public transportation at our doorstep, heading to all directions of BA. The local restaurants were fantastic. Take a stroll and go to those within the 2 blocks and try out restauarnts before referring to recommendations in travel books. The apartment is spacious and very homely, which made it easy for my 12 and 9 year old to settle in to. All the amenities and comfort made the stay feel like being at home. I will definitely be calling up Mike again for our next stay.

Perfectly located and safe place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I enjoyed our week long stay in Ba at Mike's loft in the Capital Federal District. Transportation was arranged through his service and we could have not felt more comfortable with our driver. The loft was conveniently located to shopping, great restaurants and tourist attractions. All a short walk away! We felt very safe and the loft offered us a comfortable retreat to rest and rejuvenate for our next day's activities. We will definitely book with Mike again when we return to B.A.!!
