  • Magnificent!!!!

    "My wife and I are nearing the end of a 2 1/2 month stay in this fabulous apartment. This was our third summer stay in BA, and was by far the best. The location is great; never a problem getting a cab. Several bus stops right outside the front door, although we didn't use the buses because cabs are so cheap. The apartment itself is large, very comfortable, and beautifully furnished and equipt; dozens of books on architecture and art. Plenty of hot water. Only 5 apartments in the building; in 2+ months only saw two people in the lobby. Only negative is the noise in both bedrooms; the buses stop just feet from the bedroom windows and the sound of their brakes penetrates the double glazed windows and the silent motorized shutters. A white noise machine handles the traffic noise, but not the buses braking. We tend to be heavy sleepers, so the noise wasn't a major problem. Marcella is super; we had no serious problems during our visit, but she was most responsive in giving us advice and resolving a couple of minor issues. The official conversion rate is currently 8.4 pesos to the dollar, but the "blue" rate is 15.1 peso to the dollar, so we recommend that you carry high denomination dollar bills. Brits and Europeans might well consider carrying US Dollars to convert at the blue rate; The current official rate for euros is 11 pesos; sterling is 13.7 (NO BLUE RATE>>!). We highly recommend this beautiful apartment and we hope to return next summer."

  • Wonderful Apartment

    "Location may be everything, but comfort is equally important. We loved both. We were four adults and one child, and this apartment easily accommodated our needs...and then some. And we spent one month in the apartment. The beds and bedding are top notch. The bathrooms are stylish and functional. The entire home is uncluttered and tastefully decorated--including five paintings by Palermo Hollywood artist, Milo Lockett-- having been completely renovated and restored recently. The kitchen is modern, with everything you need to cook a meal. Though the apartment within a quick walk of really great restaurants (we ate Cumana and Parilla Peña 4 times each during the month), bars (for example, there are 4 English-speaking bars within a block or 3: Casa Bar, El Alamo, Temple bar, and Shamrock), cafés (Havanna on the corner Starbucks down the lane) and bakeries (medialunas are everywhere). There are also large grocery stores (Disco and Carrefour) within a short walk, while smaller grocers are just about every block. Shopping. Av Santa Fe is loaded with shops to fit any budget and is one block from the apartment. And just a few blocks north on Rodriguez Peña or Callao and you'll stumble onto the more posh shops. The Ricoleta cemetery is near loads of these shops. transportation. Taxis are easy to catch on the corner across from Havanna. Collectivos down on Santa Fe, and the Subte is an easy walk down Callao (green and red lines). Short taxi ride will get you to Palermo, San Telmo, or Boca. Safety. This is a very safe neighborhood, and really there wasn't a moment we didn't feel completely secure. Eliana and Patrick were great help during check in/out and on the few occasions when we has questions. We loved Buenos Aires and the apartment made seeing and experiencing all of it all the more rewarding. Thank you!"

  • Great Accomodation

    "My wife and I stayed at rental # 75510 for ten days and found the apartment impeccably clean, comfortable, safe and well located. We have used VRBO rentals in many places and we can honestly say that this unit is the best we've inhabited. Max, the owner, was helpful and informative. When we do return to BA, we'll definitely stay at the same place."

  • Super location, great little place!

    "My husband and I spent a week in Buenos Aires at this apartment and couldn't have been more satisfied. First of all, we had a great location in a very quiet building, and the apartment owner Max met us at the apartment the morning we arrived from the airport, giving us good local advice for sights, restaurants, transportation etc.. Also, there is a good collection of travel guides that we used extensively. The apartment is small, but a much better set-up than just a hotel room as we had a fully-equipped kitchen, a living room with dining table to spread out in and of course the bed and bathrooms. We never heard noise from any neighbors, and once the windows are closed, the street noise is very minimal. Max added some nice touches like an umbrella (we needed it one day), hair dryer, electrical adapters and a lock box. Visitors can easily pay $100 more per night for a hotel room in this area, but they won't be able to walk down the hall and make a midnight snack or cup of tea when they want in a single hotel room. Live like a Porteno for your stay!"
