The decor of this whimsical and feminine one-bedroom apartment was inspired by the play “The House of Bernarda Alba” by Federico Garcia Lorca. Quirky details, a rainbow terrace, and a frilly master bedroom make The Terrace our most fantastical vacation rental.
There’s a retro, vintage vibe throughout that matches the bohemian nature of San Telmo. Mid-century modern furniture in the living room, a 1950s refrigerator in the kitchen, gorgeous original tile floors, vaulted brick ceilings and exposed brick walls, we wanted to celebrate the architecture of this century-old building.
The kitchen is fully equipped with details like a coffee pot, kettle, and citrus juicer (for amazing breakfasts al fresco), a microwave (for reheating those delicious meals you couldn’t finish the night before), a stove and oven, and plenty of dishes, pots and pans. The skylight from the rooftop terrace and the wall of windows in the living room let in a soft natural light.
Head over to the Mercado de San Telmo, just three blocks away, or the local farmer’s market on Saturdays (listed in our amazing guide to Buenos Aires you’ll find in the apartment), and stock up on great veggies and that famous Argentine beef. Grab some empanadas from the bakery and a great bottle of Malbec and head up to the terrace for dinner with a view of the San Pedro Telmo church.
The Terrace can sleep two people. The stairs are quite steep, so it’s not suitable for mobility impaired guests or guests with small children.
I've begun splitting my time between New Orleans and Buenos Aires, so if I'm not there in BA when you stay with us, my friends Grisel and Andrew will be there to take care of you.
I taught writing in universities around the world for most of my life (Italy, Panama, France, Miami, Egypt). Now I run my own vacation rental business.
My husband John is a filmmaker. He makes family films. The actors are often our three cats: Felipe, Cortado and Bonzie.
John and I both love cooking, music, and, of course, travel. In 2015 we took a five-week trip in South America, so if you have any questions about traveling you think I can help with, let me know. I'm happy to help.
We've been renting out our spaces since 2008; we've made friends all over the world and learned so much. A bunch of them even came to our wedding in April 2015. Talk about an inspiring group of guests.
Angela McCallum purchased this apartment in 2009
This apartment is in the same building as another apartment we purchased just one year before. We love the building because of its amazing architectural features. It's a classic chorizo-style apartment building very typical of turn-of-the-century residences in San Telmo.
We love the rooftop terrace, the vaulted brick ceilings and original tile floors.
We're just 2 blocks from Plaza Dorrego, the heart of San Telmo and 2 blocks away from Puerto Madero, Buenos Aires' most modern neighborhood. It's a fantastic location.
We love San Telmo's bohemian vibe and authenticity. Though gentrification is definitely happening, it's not pretentious... yet.
In particular, we love that it's small. No matter where you are in San Telmo, you'll find a cool place to eat, great bars and cafes, some lovely boutiques (though fewer than in Palermo or Recoleta) and you will mostly hear Spanish.
