Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4)
- english, french, spanish
We are a retired couple following successful careers in software and finance. We moved to Buenos Aires in 2007 to give our 2 teenage sons exposure to the Spanish language and Argentine culture. We now spend our time split between our homes in Recoleta and Charleston, South Carolina. We also spend time in Mendoza where we have a vineyard and make wine for export back to the states.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Owner chose Recoleta
Buenos Aires is truly a city that never sleeps. The culture, the parks, the restaurants are second to none. Recoleta is the most upscale and well regarded neighborhood in the city and this apartment is right in the middle of it.
What makes this Apartment unique
We are on the top floor of this 24-hour doorman building, so no one is looking down on you. The front balconies provide tremendous city views and the rear terrace offers outdoor, secluded dining complete with your own, personal parilla (barbecue) grill. It's unique!

Amazing Apartment in an Amazing Location
We loved everything about this apartment. The apartment itself is beautiful and very well stocked. Everything you could need is there. The location is impossible to improve upon. Everyone we dealt with was very helpful and Nigel offered great recommendations for places to eat. We can't wait to come back to stay here again!
Thank you Samantha for the very kind words. I’m glad you both enjoyed the apartment. Please come back and stay with us again when you get the urge to see more of Argentina and South America!
A WINNER IN EVERY CATEGORY!!!!!!
We spent two months in this outstanding apartment, the fourth time we have done so in Recoleta. It was clearly the best of the four apartments, albeit the most expensive. The location is perfect, the penthouse is extremely well furnished and equipped. If we return to BA, it would certainly be this outstanding penthouse.
Thank you, David, for the kind comments. Please don't hesitate to contact me again should you wish to take advantage of our 'repeat customer' deal.
Quiet Recoleta location near parks, shopping, cemetery. Owners were wonderful to work with! Manager met us when we arrived and checked us out. We were two couples so this apartment was perfect! Grocery shopping was very close so we could eat breakfast 'at home' before the busy sightseeing. Neighborhood is very safe and many, many dining options within walking distance. There is a detailed owners manual and the washer-dryer was perfect for light loads to prepare for our next adventures!
Thank you for your kind comments. Glad you enjoyed your stay!
Excellent Recoleta Flat. Probably the nicest block in all of Buenos Aires. Great US style comfort and gracious owners. Big kitchen, and beautiful private terrace with a Parilla. Owner provided the best restaurant recommendations. We have stayed in Recoleta before, Palermo Chico and Barrioparque. This is by far the best apartment that we have ever stayed in Buenos Aires.
Thank your your kind comments, John. We're glad you enjoyed the apartment. Come back anytime.
Beautiful apartment in Recoleta
We had a wonderful stay at this spacious, beautiful, 2 bedroom apartment in Recoleta, steps away from La Recoleta Cemetery and the Church of Our Lady of Pilar. Located on a shady street and right next door to a fabulous bakery, this apartment was exactly what we were looking for and the VRBO description was spot on. Nigel, the owner, was terrific to work with and extremely responsive. We would love to stay there again on a future trip.
Thank you, Randi, for your kind comments. I'm so glad you enjoyed the apartment and come back any time.
Spectacular apartment, Perfect location, Extremely helpful owner and manager
We had a wonderful trip to Argentina and this apartment was a significant part of the joy. We had never been to Buenos Aires and honestly did not know what to expect. The city is beautiful and this apartment is located perfectly in Recoleta. There is a gourmet food and wine shop just steps away in one direction and a full service grocery store just steps away in the other direction. If you are like us, and find fancy hotels too small and too expensive, but still love ornate hotel lobbies and bars, you can walk to both the Alvear Palace hotel and the Four Seasons for a drink, and then return home to a fabulous and large place. The kitchen and terrace in the apartment are beautiful, and the very large living and dining area are decorated with exquisite Argentine art. What really made our trip special, however, is that the owner went out of his way from the minute we decided to rent this place to make sure our trip was fabulous. There is a local manager who greeted us and helped us with the apartment, where to eat, where to go, how to exchange money, etc. We didn't want to leave.
Nancy/Greg, thank you so much for your king comments. I am so glad you enjoyed the apartment and I'm happy that you found Buenos Aires as charming and as delightful as we have done. Please come back and visit us again!
