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.
Importantly in a noisy bustling city like Buenos Aires, all the bedrooms are at the rear of the apartment facing into a common area courtyard, not the street.
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.
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
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.
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.
Once in a while, you have the good fortune to come across a really exceptional apartment. This is one of them. Centrally located in beautiful Recoleta, this sophisticated rental boasted 20 foot ceilings, French doors onto a balcony, a large master bedroom and a chic and comfortable decor. Super friendly staff serviced the apartment and the neighborhood was packed with wonderful shops and specialty food stores. (Plus the owners leave you lists of all their favorite restaurants and vendors. )Will definitely rent again when we return to Buenos Aires!
Hamish is super friendly and prompt to reply to inquiries, questions and or concerns. The apartment is much larger than I had anticipated, the space is accentuated by high ceilings and proper lighting. It really sets the mood for a wonderful Buenos Aires visit. It would be hard to find such spectacular space with a central location for the price, take it from me (I have lived in Buenos Aires twice). I'd recommend this apartment to anyone and will make sure to book it in time for my next visit.
Thank you Hamish!
This beautifully renovated apartment is the perfect stay in BA. The main bedroom is spacious and light filled with a super comfortable king bed, ensuite and upstairs lounge. My friend stayed in the second bedroom which has two beds and an ensuite. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal and the main dining area is a great space to entertain and enjoy dinner.
The apartment is centrally located. Walking distance to all major museums, Recoleta Cemetery, botanical gardens, bars, restaurants, a liquor store, deli and a huge supermarket.
I used the nearby subway to get to Palermo, San Telmo and other parts of BA, but taxis are everywhere and cheap.
Do yourself a favor and book this apartment!
Our family of four visited Buenos Aires in June and loved our stay in this wonderful apartment. The location was superb, the apartment lovely and Hamish was responsive and helpful. We especially appreciated all of the recommendations and maps that were available to us in the apartment. The apartment is spacious and the kitchen well-stocked. We loved our time there!
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.
This apartment is extremely comfortable, attractive and convenient. The property managers and owner were very responsive. I have traveled all over the world and this is among the very best places I have stayed. I recommend it without reservation!!
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.
