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, televisions in both bedrooms 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 Buenos Aires

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.

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!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this gorgeous, modern 2-bedroom apartment for 2 weeks during July 2016 as a respite during a 3-month South American trip. The apartment exceeded even our best expectations. It was fully stocked from top to bottom (kitchen, bathroom, etc) , extremely comfortable (bed & sofa included), plenty of heat and hot water (it was winter in July, so coolish at night), laundry machine in the unit, and perfectly located to all that Buenos Aires has to offer (especially the neighboring restaurants, which were WONDERFUL, public transportation and walkable to most major sights in the city). The WiFi was fast and modern, the cable tv offered more stations than we could imagine (and plenty of stations in English- not that we were around much to watch tv, but there were times when we enjoyed chilling out after a day of sightseeing) and travel guidebooks were helpful as we planned the remainder of our trip. The owner was responsive and offered tips to enhance the enjoyment of our stay. His local manager, Carmen, was prompt and very helpful (including bringing us a welcome bottle of wine and basket of fruit!). I honestly can't think of ANYTHING that I would change, except perhaps yearn to remain in Buenos Aires and this beautiful apartment for much longer!!! THANK YOU for a wonderful 2 weeks! We will definitely rent this apartment again should we be fortunate enough to find ourselves in BA again. Fingers crossed!!!!
