About the property

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

Great location in central Palermo! This gorgeous apartment in a mid-century classic French building has many updates and decorative touches that will make your visit to Buenos Aires enjoyable and comfortable. The Botanical Gardens, Las Heras Park, Alto Palermo, Palermo Soho, Palermo Hollywood and Recoleta are all within walking distance.

The apartment is just one block to the subway and buses and taxis are at your doorstep. New double glazed windows bring in the sun while ensuring that you have a calm oasis to return home to. The two modern bathrooms—both remodeled in the last ten years--sport a bathtub with rain head shower in one and a large shower stall with double shower heads in the other. The modern kitchen features a full size fridge, a gas stove with electric convection oven, microwave and all the necessary cookware, dishes and glassware to make you feel comfortable. This apartment features Wifi, 42" HD televisions in and a mini component radio/CD player. You’ll think you’ve never left home.

You’ll feel very much the “porteno” as you step out of this beautiful building onto the broad boulevard of an upper middle-class Buenos Aires neighborhood.'

About Robert Osika

I have travelled extensively and fell in love with Buenos Aires. The city is vibrant and exciting with lots to see and do and great restaurants. I always tell everyone I was attracted to this city for the 'portenos' - Argentines are very friendly and accomodating.

Robert Osika purchased this condo in 2006

Why Robert Osika chose Recoleta

I loved the location of this apartment. You feel like you are living amongst the Argentines. The neighborhood is vibrant and lively and filled with sidewalk bars, cafes, "restos" and the streets are lined with bakeries, green grocers, deli's, flower vendors, pasta shops....everything at your doorstep!

What makes this condo unique

I totally renovated this property after I bought it and tried to refurbish it to North American Standards. The kitchen is equipped with a full size fridge/freezer, a gas stove with and electric convection oven, microwave and all the utensils, dishes, appliances and pots to make you stay comfortable. The windows facing the street have been replaced with double glazed windows to reduce noise to a minimum, making this apartment a quiet oasis.

Stay in the house of a friend.

  • 5 of 5

Our first idea was that we were in the house of a friend, not a rented apt., Robert was there

to show it to us and to answer any doubt that we could have.

The furniture and apt. are well looked after, like if someone was living there and not just for renting.

Our stay was short but we enjoyed it.

We feel that we have a new friend.

Of course we recommend it for a pleasent stay en B.A.

Great unit in an excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this apartment in a beautiful, stylish and safe building. This unit was perfect for us (2 adults and 1 child) during our wonderful stay in BA. It was clean, spacious and in an excellent location - 2 blocks from the subway (Subte), grocery store around the corner, ATM across the street and plenty of restaurants and shopping. Robert was great in getting us logistical information ahead of time including airport pickup recommendations. Carmen, our on site host, got us oriented and was just a phone call away.

Coronel Diaz revisited

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay in this stylish Palermo apartment was in 2015. We had wonderful memories, so decided to return again this past Mar, 2017, while visiting family with our 2 teenage sons. The spacious layout, 2 separate bedrooms and well equipped kitchen work perfectly for our family. Extremely comfortable beds and excellent AC (in all rooms) ensure a restful nights sleep-and the new washing machine is a convenient addition. As with our first visit, we enjoyed the lively ambience of the neighbourhood and it's many restaurants, shops and cafes. We were also very grateful to the landlords Robert and Norm for being so accommodating with our schedule, and for their dining recommendations, tips

and helpfulness. This apartment would be a perfect choice for any single person, couple or family wishing to experience this vibrant and beautiful city.

Classic Buenos Aires apartment extremely comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

I was a single traveller and this was my first time in Buenos Aires. The location and set up of this apartment went a long way towards making the city accessible and my self led explorations easy and convenient. I like to walk, even late at night and I never had to worry about getting lost or my personal safety.

The apartment, the building, and the Palermo neighbourhood itself are authentically Buenos Aires; if you prefer to spend your travel time in an immersive and genuine experience then this is the apartment for you.

Outstanding apartment in one of the best neighbourhoods of Buenos Aires

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment in a lovely area of Buenos Aires. It is situated in Palermo, close to Avenida Sante Fe and the Subte (Line D of the subway system). Walking distance or a short bus ride to the Recoleta neighbourhood as well as Palermo Soho, a trendy area with many excellent restaurants and cafes. There are many grocery stores in the neighbourhood as well as restaurants basically right outside the door.

The apartment is owned by Robert who met us on arrival. He couldn't have been more helpful. He had Sube cards for us which are used for bus and subway rides. He told us how to get sim cards for our phones. Any questions we had, he was more than happy to help.

The apartment was perfect!! Spotlessly clean with maid service once a week. A large master bedroom with a super comfortable king size bed with a large ensuite connected. The second bedroom is only a bit smaller with a small balcony overlooking the neighbourhood. Floor to ceiling soundproof windows in both bedrooms. The living room is very comfortable with a large flat screen tv and cable. The wifi worked perfectly. We like to cook and found the kitchen to have everything we needed. Large fridge (by South American standards) and a gas stove that worked very well. The washing machine is in the master bathroom and worked very well.

When we return to Buenos Aires, we will definitely want to stay again in the apartment. Thanks again for everything Robert.

Beautiful, immaculate 2 bedroom apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this apartment. Robert, our host, is amazing! When we arrived New Year's Eve at the apartment at about 5:45PM, we were thinking that we better get out immediately to buy some staples to do us through to Jan 2nd in case of store closures on New Year's Day. As we were bringing our bags to the front door, Robert arrived with 3 bags of groceries for us! Needless to say we were very grateful and impressed.

The apartment itself is perfect. Beautifully decorated with two spacious bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a kitchen that has proved to be very workable.

The weekly maid service is much appreciated

Robert is always available to answer any questions and recommend local restaurants. When we wanted to get our hair cut, Robert recommend an excellent spot.

The building is quiet with friendly neighbours.

The neighbourhood is perfect. Lots of grocery stores, restaurants and shops are close by including an upscale shopping mall and a cinema multiplex.

Next time we are back in this beautiful city, we will want to stay in this apartment. Many thanks Robert!
