Buenos Aires Apartment Rental Photos and Description

20 foot tall ceilings in Living & Dining areas. Classic historic architecture

Relive the history of Buenos Aires only 5 blocks from today’s Recoleta village. In 1894, when the country of Argentina was one of the wealthiest in the world with strong European ties, a Frenchman built this elegant residence on Calle Juncal. You can still feel the old world ambiance in the building’s beautiful church-like façade, tall ceilings, and architectural features, but you can also enjoy modern conveniences like a renovated 'American style' kitchen. This large three bedroom apartment (over 200 square meters or 2,200 square feet) has a large master suite with king size bed, walk-in closet and separate bath, shower and toilet areas. There is a second smaller loft bedroom (with 2 twin beds) with its own bathroom with shower. A fully equipped office/study with television, DVD player, broadband internet access and wi-fi connection is tucked into a loft with skylight off the master bedroom. (There is also a very small bedroom (with bed slightly smaller than a twin) and bath in what was formerly the maid’s quarters which could accommodate a 5th person for a brief stay.) Recently renovated by the same architect who did the Art Hotel, the apartment features 15 foot ceilings in the living and dining areas and master bedroom. The apartment also contains some antiques and features art work by several local artists which we encourage you to discover and enjoy as much as we have. With each trip we make, we add to our collection of Argentine art in the apartment.

The apartment has its own private, elegant entrance with marble stairs up to the second floor (considered the 1st floor in Argentina - but there is NO elevator). World class restaurants, cafes, and gourmet grocery and wine shops are all in the neighborhood and within easy walking distance. Two blocks away you can enjoy the café lined Plaza Mitre for an early morning coffee before setting out into one of the most walkable cities in the world; three blocks in the other direction, you’ll find a Metro stop on Avenida Santa Fe. And with the apartment's central location in the city, everything Buenos Aires has to offer is a short taxi ride away.

Please note on some days when we have a guest checking in and out on the same day, the maid will not always finish the cleaning until 4pm, but you may checkin earlier on this understanding.

Bookings are not confirmed until the deposit has been received.

About Hamish

I fell in love with Buenos Aires and bought this beautiful apartment in the historic and charming area of Recoleta. You can share some of the excitement and interest I discovered by renting this truly unique and beautifully furnished home away from home (greater than 2,200 Sq foot) apartment yourself.

Hamish purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Hamish chose Buenos Aires

I think Buenos Aires is the most vibrant cosmopolitan city in South America. Recoleta is probably the best known part of Buenos Aires with everyone wanting to visit the famous cemetery just a few blocks away from my apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

Loads of fabulous restaurants, coffee shops, supermarkets and art galleries are nearby and you are close to public transport to the city via bus or subway (subte) is 300 meters. There are buses within 25 meters of the front door. The popular shopping precinct of Santa Fe ave is just a 5 minute stroll from the apartment. You are surrounded by beautiful classic Buenos Aires architecture on every corner.

Old School Buenos Aires

  • 5 of 5

I spent two months in this lovely apartment in the heart of Recoleta. Charming, spacious and well appointed I was able to host several dinner parties with all the wine glasses, plates and service items needed.

Comfortable master bed and ensuite as well as an additional bedroom for my daughters when they came to visit.

The neighbourhood is friendly and there are good nearby restaurants. My favourite was Honorio. A few minutes walk to the subway and taxis always handy on the main street a half a block away. I would definitely recommend and hope to return myself.

Convenient Location; Very Comfortable; Great Landlord

  • 5 of 5

Centrally located in a neat Recoleta neighborhood. Very clean well kept place w/lots of character. Can't say enough about how accommodating the landlord is, and just how knowledgeable they are about area - which really helped. If you are coming from afar, this is a very nice place to stay and lowers the "unknown barrier" to nothing.

Recoleta apartment for a family of four

  • 5 of 5

Overall, we were pleased with this apartment. The location is central, and there is a grocery nearby, as well as laundromat (no machine in apt.) It is comfortable and stylish, and quiet because the bedrooms are face an inner courtyard. One evening we lost power, and were waiting for an electrician, but I realized it was only our apt. and managed to track down someone who knew where the breakers for the building were located. My only issue is the additional cash fee charged by the BA City staff when we checked out. He came at 8 am Friday morning, and apparently this qualifies as an "early checkout". I think their time window for a "normal" checkout is too narrow and unfair. This has nothing to do with the owner , Hamish, who was prompt and professional to deal with, and refunded our deposit within days.

great location and space

  • 5 of 5

perfect location at recoleta and barrio norte -- easy to walk many places. lots of space for two. attentive point of contact. comfortable furnishings.

Transactions with owner were quick, easy and simple -- Hamish was terrific.

possible extra perk for guests; though difficult, may be helpful to help find international guests somewhere to store luggage if they arrive before checkin etc....

For great shopping. From the apartment walk down Juncal and over Pueyrredon for about 7 blocks until you get to Avenue Coronel Diaz. Turn left towards Ave Santa Fe and in 3 blocks your will come to Alto Palermo Shopping Center. The best value things to buy are from the local Argentine shops and chains rather than the international brands.
