Overview

About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Make Casa Palermo your vacation home in Buenos Aires. Centrally located in old Palermo, between Barrio Norte and Palermo SOHO, the neighborhood is dominated by tree-lined streets and charming architecture; near quaint cafes, stylish restaurants, art galleries, designer boutiques and quirky specialty shops.

Casa Palermo serves as a superior alternative to a hotel or apartment rental, for either vacation or business travelers. It is safe, convenient and quiet. Casa Palermo is spacious and comfortable, and best of all, you have an entire house to yourself. The house has an old-world ambiance with a modern twist, with 15-foot ceilings in the main house, with 8 foot windows that open to a private courtyard where you can enjoy your breakfast al fresco. The bedrooms directly access a sun-drenched roof-top terrace. A fireplace gives the living room a central focus and it's a great place to unwind.

The decor is modern, however we have been very careful to preserve the original charm and architectural ambiance by retaining the antique wood floors and doors, as well as the tall windows, which flood the rooms with incredible light. As a counterpoint, the furniture is decidedly modern, with careful selections, such as Le Corbusier's leather LC2 sofa and Basculant Chairs (included in the permanent collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art), and similar sophisticated modern pieces, augmented by careful selections of original art. The layout of the house retains the traditional arrangement in which all the rooms open to either the courtyard (patio) or roof-top terrace. The house is set back a good distance from the street, lending it an atmosphere is private, elegant and serene. Casa Palermo is an oasis in the center of a vibrant, world-class city.

About John Brzezinski

Our interests are architecture, design, art, photography, cooking, dining, exploring.

John Brzezinski purchased this townhome in 2005

Why John Brzezinski chose Buenos Aires

In Febuary, 1985, on advice from friends, we traveled south of the Equator for the first time for a one week visit to Buenos Aires and another week touring Chile. After a few days we were so enamored with Buenos Aires that we cancelled the trip to Chile. We found the people to be warm, the architecture European, and a creative vibe that struck a chord with us. Within days we found ourselves shopping for real estate. Ten days later we made an offer for the townhouse that we now call Casa Palermo. It was generally a wreck and had not been updated in years. On January 1, 2006, after 8 months of construction, we opened our door to Casa Palermo's first guest. We remain smitten with Buenos Aires and return twice a year to visit our house and the many friends we have made. Meanwhile, we dream about the restuarants and mark the days until our next trip.

What makes this townhome unique

The time it takes to get to Buenos Aires is easily outweighed by the fact that there is effectively no jet lag when traveling to and from the U.S. Once in BA, the benefits are numerous: The preponderance of restaurants; the genuinely warm people; the incredible vibrancy of a unbelievable city; a culture that is at once foreign and strangely familiar, permeated with a creative vibe that is felt everywhere you go.

Perfect Escape !

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed at Casa Palermo in early January as a wind down from a trek in Patagonia. It fulfilled all our expectations.The beauty of Casa Palermo starts well before your arrival. John's Survival Guide which walks you through your arrival at Casa Palermo and includes hints on visiting this beautiful city was extremely helpful and reassuring to this inexperienced traveler. The location is centrally located and within short walking distances to stores restaurants as well as the subway. Being the back unit on a side street makes it quiet and seem far away from the bustle of city life. We spent mornings sipping coffee and relaxing in the beautiful courtyard planning are days.

The apartment itself is extremely comfortable and has been updated beautifully. The beds were very comfortable and produced restful nights.

Prior to our travels we had reserved a "closed door" dinner at a restaurant recommended by friends who had visited it twice. What a surprise to find that it was across the street from the Casa!

Overall our visit was wonderful and I would highly recommend Casa Palermo to anyone visiting this world class city.

Owner's Response: Dear Charles, We're so glad that Casa Palermo met your needs. We imagine that after trekking, some relaxing was in order. What a coincidence that the close door restaurant turned out to be across the street! Presumably it must be Bumon, on the corner. We've been a couple of times, but not to the close door portion. Very nice atmosphere, nice service and good food. Thank you again for choosing Casa Palermo. All the best in the new year! John & Carolyn

Great home, exceptional hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Palermo for more than a week over the Christmas holidays (3 adults). This is a lovely and comfortable home in an excellently located neighborhood. The house is beautifully appointed, very clean, beds were extremely comfortable, and bedrooms are situated far from street noise. What sets Casa Palermo apart is the hosts, who went above and beyond to make our arrangements seamless and our stay comfortable. We arrived on Christmas Eve and because the owners were worried about us finding stores open, arranged to have basic supplies (including a lovely bottle of wine) at the house for our arrival. Other reviewers have mentioned the 'Survival Guide' and excellent restaurant suggestions, which were also extremely helpful and supported an easy transition to the house and neighborhood. We would highly recommend this property, particularly for those who are new to the beautiful city of BA.

Owner's Response: Dear Karen, What a wonderful review. Thank you! We are so glad that your arrivals and departures went smoothly, at a time (holidays) when things can easily go badly. And we're happy to know that once again we have had the good fortune to have guests who enjoy Casa Palermo as much as we do. All the best! John & Carolyn

Stylish art home in vibrant Buenos Aires Palermo

  • 5 of 5

We (two couples) stayed at Casa Palermo for 5 nights. So happy with the location, the home in general and the owner.

They were amazing prior arrival with so many helpful hints and " walked us thru everything" ( survival guide)

The information we received before and the transportation was helpful. Well maintained apartment in we enjoyed the patio in the morning and the stars from the rooftop at night.

Clean, great value and we felt very secure. The Italian bacery closed by offered the best pastries. Always would recommend to stay at Casa Palermo when traveling to BA!!

Casa Palermo was a dream!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 11 nights and had the time of our lives. First time in BA and the owners were incredibly helpful and responsive to our communication. They even offered us a "survival guide" with a ton of helpful hints and recommendations for the area. We cannot WAIT to return someday. This was our first stay at a VRBO location and I must say, Casa Palermo set the bar high. We already miss the good eats, colors, and people of BA!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, Chris. Carolyn, Camila and I are so pleased that you enjoyed the house and the city. We try to make a stay at Casa Palermo feel like home and a vacation, all at the same time. It sounds like we succeeded!

Casa Palermo met expectations (and they were high)

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Buenos Aires before nor had we used VRBO. Well, our stay at Casa Palermo was the right choice. Great location. Great space. Great owner. It all worked....and we had a great time.

We were especially appreciative of the owner who provided many helpful suggestions regarding where to shop, good restaurants, how to use local transportation, how to tip, and on and on. All suggestions proved to be perfect and help to make our stay enjoyable.

The townhouse was quiet, clean, and just what we wanted.

I highly recommend the space to others.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from visiting our daughter who's doing a semester in Buenos Aires and spent a week in Casa Palermo. We couldn't have asked for more as far as comfort, security, privacy and location. Casa Palermo met every criteria we were looking for. Best of all, were the responsive owners and local manager of the property.

The townhouse is located on a very quiet block of a happening neighborhood. We had a cafe/bakery across the street serving great coffee and medialunas which became a morning and afternoon ritual. The safe neighborhood had within walking distance everything we were looking for: a grocery store, a hip outdoor mall (Plaza Serrano) an ATM, a basilica to celebrate Easter mass and if it wasn't walking distance, cabs were always available in any direction. The neighborhood is filled with restaurants, cafes, parks and we always felt safe walking around at all hours of the night.

The townhouse was very modern. Casa Palermo had an excellent fully equipped kitchen. We mainly made breakfast or light lunches but could have thrown a dinner party had we needed to. Casa Palermo has two terraces: one just off the front door and one off the master bedroom both perfect for reading or relaxing and ideal for privately catching some rays. The beds are comfortable and the rooms can get super dark for a great night's sleep.

We fell in love with Buenos Aires and the Argentine people. A big reason why was because of where we stayed. Casa Palermo will make you feel like you're a local living the good life. We can't wait to get back to Buenos Aires and will definitely try and stay at Casa Palermo again.
