About Angela McCallum
The owners of this apartment are friends of mine. They are retired and live in the United States. They bought this property when they spent time in Buenos Aires dancing tango and still use it when they go back. I lived in Buenos Aires for seven years. During that time, I started renting out apartments that belonged to friends of mine and I'm still doing that, though now I'm located in New Orleans. My colleagues Grisel, Andrew and Juan are there in BA helping out. They're awesome and super helpful.
Angela McCallum purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Angela McCallum chose San Telmo
This home represents the heyday of the early 1900s when gorgeous residences were built throughout San Telmo, Monserrat, San Nicolas, and Barracas. The majority of the buildings in San Telmo are from the early 1900s or before. Not all of them have been maintained as well as this one. It's an elegant building with an antique birdcage elevator. Most of the apartments from this era were large like this one, but in the convening years, developers have bought them in turned them into smaller apartments. So finding a four-bedroom flat that takes up the entire floor was super unusual and still is. The size, the location, and the original fixtures are what attracted the owners to the space. And over the years, they made it their own, representing their love of tango and Buenos Aires.
What makes this Apartment unique
Besides the size, the location is also spectacular. It's in the best part of San Telmo and close enough to walk to downtown, Puerto Madero, and even La Boca (though I wouldn't recommend walking there).

We had a wonderful experience. We would definitely come and stay here again! Grisel was very helpful and accommodating!
Buenos Aires is a super large city. It's very walkable and public transportation is great. We are in the neighborhood called San Telmo. It's very close to the city center. It's an historic area filled with boutiques, restaurants, antique shops, a gorgeous old-fashioned market, an active central square, and the best street fair in the city which happens on Sundays. There are lots of tango halls near us or you can just sit in the plaza and watch the street performers. San Telmo has become a much more happening area in the past ten years. There are a ton of new bars serving craft beers and a few wine bars, too. One of the things we most love is that it's a small neighborhood with lots of activity, so day or night, there is always something going on.
