About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3-4)

Aire Serrano, or 'Mountain Air', is a painstakingly renovated 2BR/2Ba boutique residence, perfectly situated two blocks from Plaza Serrano in the heart of Palermo Soho.

Available as a luxury vacation rental, the apartment comes with personalized concierge services. Your very own attentive local host will be there to greet you on arrival, and ensure that your stay in BA will be truly un-cookie-cutter.

A study in light, air and space, the apartment preserves the spirit and charm of its distinctively BA Deco-era roots. Contemporary but not cold, organic with many touches of nature, recalling BA's past yet firmly of the present, aireSerrano is an oasis in the heart of BA's most charming shopping, gallery and dining area.

Step off the street through a secure door into a chandeliered hallway. Enter the apartment and a gently gurgling Zen fountain greets you. A spacious kitchen/living/dining area opens through two original French doors onto a balcony where you can sip coffee at an antique French bistro table.

A study area and a very private bedroom with ensuite bathroom and rain shower complete the lower level.

Soaring, open stairs rise in a glass atrium to the upper level, where a glass-fronted masterbedroom flows into a luxurious bathroom with an inside/outside Jacuzzi. Sink into the top-of-the-line Sealy Posturepedic 'Providence' Pillowtop mattress, onto plush feather and down Arredo pillows and contemplate the blue BA skies.

The upper level opens onto a private deck, complete with a slate waterfall, bamboo and lavender plantings, teak recliners and a teak patio set.

Personalize the space with your favorite music by docking your iPod directly into the apartment's home entertainment system. Wireless internet and a cell phone provide connectivity. Video surveillance, an electronic security system and a safe offer peace of mind.

Towels by Thomas O'Brien, hangers by Muji, bathrobes by Arredo. Designed by an owner-aesthete in collaboration with local architects, the apartment is available for short-term rental to guests who share a similar refined, understated sensibility.

The residence takes its name from an Argentine expression for a wholesome way of living -- 'aire serrano' (mountain air) is synonymous with 'buen vida' (good life).

Pause and listen to the trickle of the falling water.

Inhale and take in some Aire Serrano.

About Martin

I am a well-travelled fan of nature, art and architecture and a voracious consumer of world culture, both high and low-brow.

Why Martin chose Buenos Aires

Aire Serrano was a labor of love, allowing me to transform an old, dark but charming apartment into a study of light, air and space. My vision was to convert it from a cave-like warren into a soaring duplex bathed in light, seamlessly integrating the outside with the inside. The pictures honestly under-represent the myriad angles, vignettes and senses of space that have emerged from the apartment's painstaking transformation.

My tastes run to the clean, sophisticated yet understated. I find beauty in small carefully-constructed details, and have sought to incorporate some of them into the apartment, such as the Zen bamboo fountain, the slate waterfall and the lighting coves over the living area.

Aire Serrano was meant to be a sanctuary within a stone's throw of Plaza Serrano's action, nestled among Palermo Soho's elegant restaurants, cafes, boutiques and galleries. It is my little retreat in Buenos Aires and my launchpad for Latin America -- I am happy to share it with fellow discerning travellers and citizens of the world.

What makes this apartment unique

Available as a luxury vacation rental, the apartment comes with personalized concierge services. Your very own attentive local host will be there to greet you on arrival, and ensure that your stay in BA will be truly un-cookie-cutter.

Excelente apartamento y atenció!!! Como en casa ;)

  • 5 of 5

No dejen de alquilar este hermoso apartamento, con los ojos cerrados... Yo pague en efectivo ya que no pude hacerlo por la pag. y nos fue de lo mejor. Las fotos son exactamente como es el apto. Super espacioso, comodo, buena calefacción, excelente ubicación, a solo metros tienen miles de opciones para comer, divertirse y comprar. La semana incluye la limpieza de 1 dia la cual fue excelente, nisiquiera sabiamos, nos cambiaron sabanas y toallas. Pero lo mejor fue la atención de Martin, su preocupación por los detalles y que nos sintieramos como en casa, fue increible, muchisimas gracias!!! Volveriamos a rentar cada vez que vengamos y lo recomendamos 100%.

Our stay in February 2016

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this place in Buenos Aires in February 2016. The location is excellent and the apartment itself is exceptional. It is just as advertised. Martin is extremely helpful and he by himself is worth the stay. I highly recommend this apartment without reservation.

great place to stay in buenos aires

  • 5 of 5

We three women 65/72 stayed here for 9 days. The location is great - Palermo is a super part of Buenos Aires and I have to say we always felt safe. The apartment was as advertised, clean and airy. The upstairs deck is a delight and the two water features add to the ambience. The beds were very comfortable, and as mentioned by others, Martin was a great manager. He was very responsive and most helpful with advice and recommendations. We found it easy to book, and to check out. Martin even let us leave our luggage after checkout time because we had a late plane leaving. We found the apartment mostly quiet except for some excitement on the weekend. However, if you travel with a white noise machine that usually takes care of any problems. The only thing that would be unusual for most Americans is getting used to the keys which insert horizontally and which require a bit of jiggling. However, after a couple of days we were old hands at it. Having no car it was extremely easy to hail a cab right outside the door, and the cabs in BA are quite inexpensive. I would stay here if I ever visit again and would happily recommend it.

The Perfect Place to Stay in Buenos Aires

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, and our son and his wife, stayed at Aire Serrano for a full week. Often when renting a place on-line there is a tiny bit of trepidation when you first arrive and get your initial glimpse of the property. In this case our first reaction was WOW! The apartment was incredible and as advertised (even better actually). It is not easy to find an apartment that has 2 large bedrooms with in-suite bathrooms and to also have them on separate floors but this one sure did. Both bedrooms were terrific and the master bedroom upstairs has an amazing outdoor deck attached to it with lights, a fountain and a table large enough to comfortably sit 4 people for breakfast or an early evening drink. What made the place even better was the location. it was situated 1 block from Plaza Serrano and every street in multiple directions was filled with restaurants, bars, boutiques that were all unique. We were also easily able to walk to Plaza Italia when we needed to take the subte (a lovely 20 minute stroll). To top it all off Martin was a pleasure to work with on anything that came up. He always made us feel as if he could and would help us with any question or issue we might have. We can't wait to stay there again and to send friends to Aire Serrano as well.

Great location, plenty of space

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this apartment multiple times while I've been in Buenos Aires for business over the past 8 months. The location of the apartment can't be beat - minutes away from Plaza Serrano and Plaza Armenia. There is also a small market directly next door, which is very convenient for small purchases. One of the nicest parts about the apartment is how quiet it is. Despite being on a fairly busy street there is very little noise, especially in the master bedroom. When the weather is nice, the outdoor spaces are excellent for relaxing, eating outdoors, sunbathing, etc.

Another fantastic aspect of the apartment is the manager, Martin. He is extremely response and speaks excellent English. He was able to accommodate multiple travel changes and special requests and do it in a very quick fashion.

All together, this is one of the better rental properties in Palermo and the best in its price range, in my opinion. It is clear that the owners and the manager take great pride in the property and providing guests with a stress free and enjoyable stay.

San Francisco

Great Country, Great City, Great Neighborhood, Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples, ages 32-42, one from New York and the other from San Francisco, and we can't recommend this place highly enough! The logistics were seamless: couple of emails back and forth, PayPal deposit, PayPal security deposit, person greeted/let us in/explained the rules of the road when we arrived, person (Martin--very pleasant to deal with throughout booking) saw us off on our final day and the deposit was promptly returned.

The place itself was awesome--good-sized living/dining/kitchen space; 2 decent-sized bedrooms, one on the main floor, the other upstairs (good for couple time apart), both with en-suite baths; an awesome terrace just the other side of the upstairs bedroom (wish I was on that terrace right now, in fact, staring out the window at this cloudy San Francisco sky).

Neighborhood (Palermo Soho) is great. As others have said, tons of restaurants, many of which, within blocks, are on the "best of BsAs" lists. We hit several of them, including La Cabrera (steak), which is right around the corner, and Cluny (more steak and other options), which might be 4 blocks away. The apartment itself is two blocks southwest of Plaza Serrano (all-night-long party some nights, but the apartment is far enough away that if you don't want to participate (we didn't) you are not in the middle of it). Except for a slightly long (12 minutes?) yet pleasant walk to the subway, couldn't have been a better location.
