About the property

Studio/ small open plan 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2

This charming studio apartment with a small private plant-filled balcony is furnished to a standard seldom seen in Buenos Aires vacation rentals. It features the high ceilings and wood floors of the 100 year old French style buildings typical of Recoleta while providing the comfort and amenities of a modern apartment. The location (Juncal/ Ayacucho) is excellent - just two blocks from Avenida Santa Fe, six blocks from the Recoleta Cemetery in one direction, and six blocks to the Line D subway (Callao) in the other.

Please note that, while I remodeled the apartment fairly recently, the building itself is very old and not in the same aesthetic conditions as the apartment (everything works and is safe, obviously). I can send photographs of the common areas upon request.

The basic price includes cleaning and laundry service (towels/ sheets) once per week. The apartment can accommodate one or two people.

Amenities you may not find elsewhere::

- 6 mega WiFi

- The use of a pay as you go local cell phone (only pay for what you use)

- High quality bed with a pure feather duvet/ pillows/ Egyptian cotton sheets

- Dimmer switches on bedroom and bathroom lights

- Remote controlled 'Split' hot/ cold air conditioning unit

- Philippe Starck 'Ghost' chairs

- My extensive list of personal recommendations based on a conversation with you prior to your arrival about your interests and plans. I am also available around the clock to help you with anything that may come up before, during, or after your stay.

Optional extras::

- Taxi transfers to and from the airport

- Twice weekly maid service

- Organic Weleda brand toiletries

- Fresh flowers

- Welcome bottle of wine or local bubbly

- Welcome fruit basket

I'm a US/ UK national who has lived on and off in Buenos Aires for a few years, and I enjoy helping visitors to the apartment to make the most of their stay by offering personalized recommendations and assistance. As somebody who enjoys international travel and has stayed in places ranging from the sumptuous to the disappointing, I've learned a lot along the way and have used this knowledge to try to offer the best vacation rental experience possible to my guests.

Thank you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I really enjoyed my stay in Buenos aires thanks to the great hospitality of Christine Taylor. She is very dedicated to the comfort of her guests and has a list of personal recommendations of things to do and places to eat all within close proximity to the apartment. The apartment is really close to restaurants and many shops. It's ideal for walking and though I had my phone stolen while out clubbing, not once did I feel unsafe walking in Recoleta, especially around the apartment. You walk out onto the street and can easily get a cab, or take a leisurely walk to my favourite ice-cream place, Persicco. It's also within walking distances of places of interest, such as the cemetary, museums etc.

As for the apartment, I was never without any sleep because of noise, even though it's on the road. Because there is so much within close proximity to see and do, I hardly spent much time in the apartment. I don't own a television so this was not an issue for me, but I would imagine for someone who might have some obsession with television, this might not be an ideal place. But with so much to do, I don't imagine there'd be much time for television.

It is really as it appears in the photos.

Great little spot in Recoleta

  • 5 of 5

Christine was very attentive, meeting us at the apartment and seeing us off with an arranged taxi to the Airport. She provided several guidebooks and recommendations for local dining, etc. She even provided us with a cellphone to use during our stay, along with coffee, oranges and some sweets. The apartment is small but very serviceable for 2 people, and its locations allowed us to walk to many attractions. All in all, a lovely place to stay with a gracious host.

A gem!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in mid Nov 2015. This is a perfect studio, very clean and well located. The bed is very comfortable and all necessities are available, grocery store next door, cafes, mall, restaurants all within very short walking distance. The pictures posted by the owner accurately reflect the place, it is as advertised. Christine, the owner, is extremely resourceful and will do everything she can to make your stay enjoyable in BA. She truly cares for her property and her guests. Would stay here again.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is exactly as advertised, quaint but comfortable with everything you need. The location is fantastic, close to the Recoleta Cemetery, museums, restaurants, etc... This area also seems very centralized for the city in general, almost halfway between the areas of San Telmo to the South and Palermo to the North. We were able to grab taxis just outside the door and get to anywhere we wanted for a reasonable fare.

The real star of this apartment is the owner, Christine!!! She did everything possible to make sure our stay was great. She knew that our flight to Argentina was cancelled before we could even tell her and even though we arrived almost a day late at an ungodly early hour of the morning she was there to greet us and make sure we settled in ok. She put together a fantastic list of things to do and see in both the neighborhood (restaurants, bars etc) and the city as a whole. She even provides a cell phone and answered texts from us providing recommendations of things to do on the fly while we were out and about.

Christine really has a great system in place to make sure the people staying at her apartment really enjoy the time they have in Buenos Aires. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone!!!

Beautiful and very comfortable apartment in BsAs

  • 5 of 5

We were very glad to find this apartment on the internet. We rented it in April of 2011 for a week and it was the perfect place for our first time in Buenos Aires. The apartment is exactly like the photos. New, beautiful, comfortable and very clean. It´s very well located, in the beautiful neighbourhood of Recoleta and near the best places. We walked almost everywhere.

Christine was really friendly, correct and helpful. She was punctual at check-in and check-out and also provided us with a cell phone. Besides, she speaks Portuguese very well!!

We totally recommend it!!

Ficamos muito felizes por termos encontrado este apartamento na Internet. Nós o alugamos em abril de 2011 por uma semana e ele foi o lugar perfeito para a nossa primeira vez em Buenos Aires. O apartamento é exatamente como nas fotos. Novo, lindo, super confortável e limpíssimo. Ele é muito bem localizado, no lindo bairro Recoleta e perto dos melhores lugares. Fizemos praticamente tudo a pé.

Christine foi muito gentil, correta e atenciosa. Ela foi pontual tanto no check-in quanto no check-out e também nos forneceu um celular durante nossa estada.

Além disso, ela fala português muito bem!!

Recomendamos muito este apartamento!!
