Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
After working on and off in Buenos Aires for many years, in 2003 we finally came for vacation. We had such a great time...we loved the people, the architecture, the art...and of course the food. We decided we'd like to spend more time in Buenos Aires and in 2004, we cashed in our stock options for this apartment. Today, we live in Miami, but have a great manager who meets and greets our guests.
Valerie purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Valerie chose Recoleta
We wanted to own an apartment in a major city that didn't require us to drive - a walking city, with good mass transportation or inexpensive taxis. It needed to have great architecture, style, art, music...and of course, incredible food. We found Buenos Aires to have all this and more...and at a much lower cost than Europe. Like New York or Paris, every neighborhood is a new adventure. We love the sidewalk cafes, the weekend art fairs, biking through the parks of Palermo. And while we always heard the steaks were great, no one ever told us about the homemade pasta...incredible.
What makes this Condo unique
Incredible view of the Recoleta cemetery. Jim took the initial listing picture from our balcony in the early morning. He won 3rd place in the Miami Herald photo contest for this image. The location of this property makes it convenient to visit all of Buenos Aires. The Micro Centre, San Telmo and La Boca are to the South, while Palermo and Belgrano are to the North.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Great apartment, great location
We had a wonderful stay in Recoleto. The apartment is comfortable and well equipped, and the location can’t be beat. Although the apartment is close to a subway stop, we took taxis everywhere, as they were cheap and always available. The neighborhood was pleasant and seemed very safe. Highly recommended.
Thanks so much! We hope you come back soon.

You can’t go wrong staying here!!
Nailed it: perfect location, very bright, great views of Recoleta Cemetary, balcony with 2 chairs, lots of windows, fully equipped apartment, Free Netflix, wifi works great, 2 elevators, sun all day, there is a safe for valuables, building has double gate, doorman, lots of books and guidebooks, power bars to take Canadian and US plugs (no adapters needed), landline for local calls to book restaurants/taxis etc. Owner and host very helpful and responsive to questions.
Areas for improvement: install washing machine, a couple of small tea tray tables for eating on (there’s no dining table), provide garbage bags, create a "welcome booklet" with info on how the stove works (it’s tricky), how to get the outer window shutters up and down, how to get Murphy bed down, recommended restaurants, safest taxi companies, closest subway stop, location of large supermarket, etc. Make sure to ask these questions to the check-in host. The traffic noise from bedroom can be a bit loud at night, even though apartment is on 9th floor, just late night hustle and bustle of the city. (Windows are thin glass and can hear lots going on outside). Double paned glass might help.
These things are just “nice to haves” based on other apartments we have rented during our travels. They by no means take away from the greatness of the apartment and the wonderful experience we had in BA. You can't go wrong staying here! Beautiful spot!
Thanks for choosing to stay at our place in Buenos Aires and thanks for your suggestions!
Great interesting location and place.
Loved the view from the balcony and convenient location.
A great location with fabulous views of Recoleta Cemetery
A lovely lapartment for 2 with a balcony which is perfect for sipping morning coffee or an evening glass of wine! The views are as good as the photos! We really enjoyed staying in this area and found the taxis to be a reliable and inexpensive way of getting around.
Thanks for choosing to stay at our place. We hope your travels bring your our way again soon.
Happy New Year!

Great apartment in centrally located area
We had a great stay. This is a great one bedroom apartment located in a very nice area. Owner, Valerie, and onsite manager, Max were very accommodating and took care of arranging everything we needed. Some of the information provided in a comprehensive description of services is outdated (i.e. now closed, or phone numbers obsolete). We had a great time in Buenos Aires and I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for a great apartment!
Thanks so much...delightful to host you. We hope you come our way again.
