This charming one-bedroom apartment in the heart of Recoleta is an excellent choice for your stay in Buenos Aires. Located on one of the city's most elegant avenues, the apartment faces the back of the building and is thus, extremely quiet.
The truly special element is a private garden patio adjacent to the living room, where high walls and ambient lighting create an excellent space for dining, cocktails or answering emails. When you do head out, you'll find that the location is incredibly central. As an Argentine friend said to me, 'If you were going to put a pin on the most desired location in Buenos Aires, it would be on this apartment.' Countless shops and restaurants are right outside your door. The famed Recoleta Cemetery as well as the city's finest hotels are a few minutes walk away.
The space is both comfortable and modern. It features marble-accented bathrooms, a fully outfitted, granite finished kitchen and a large sofa area that is perfect for relaxing. The bedroom is an ensuite with a king bed and also has a small external patio. The living and dining area is spacious and huge (especially by Argentine standards!)
Recoleta is adjacent to several neighborhoods including Palermo and Plaza San Martin, both of which are a short taxi ride away.

I design leather and fur clothing and handbags in Buenos Aires. Because of that, I am there a lot and wanted a home base for myself when I am in Buenos Aires. You will feel at home here. From the wedgwood china to the extra comfortable bed, this apartment is definitely outfitted to be the most enjoyable experience for both you and me!
Virginia Lato purchased this condo in 2005
As one of my Argentine associates said to me, if you were putting a pin on a map of Buenos Aires, targeting the very best location, it would be my apartment. It is quiet, yet close to absolutely everything. You will walk the city from this location. The neighbourhood is thriving and alive with more restaurants and shops than you can possibly want, but safe and secure.
People are astounded when they see the garden that is part of this apartment. Two complete walls are windows to the garden, making the whole apartment airy and open. I normally leave the doors wide open, allowing the breezes to flow through the apartment. Since we are at the back of the apartment, the most common noise is that of the birds singing.
To make it complete, the location simply cannot be beat! Restaurants and shops abound right outside the door. If you don't want to walk, taxis are easy and plentiful, while the subway is just down the street.
Alas, we've come to the end of our stay in your airy garden apartment in fabulous Buenos Aires. We've had a marvellous time; we've walked and walked and walked (at times in places we shouldn't have; we had three locals tell us to head back to Caminito in La Boca when we strayed too far in our search of colourful houses) and it's been great to be able to come back to the apartment and rest in the middle of the day before heading out for another feast of the senses.
We have wandered through the amazing Parque Natural Y Reserva Ecologica Costanera Sur, enjoyed the ghoulish delights of La Recoleta Cementerio - with its avenues and streets, truly a walled city of the dead - and of course we had to go to Casa Rosa to see Evita's balcony. Other experiences that gave us a real feel for the spirit of the place were the San Telmo Fair and Sensaciones de Tango at Gran Cafe Tortoni. We were also lucky enough to experience a Buenos Aires Ciudad Celebration with choirs, an opera singer, traditional dancers from various regions in the most colourful and unusual costumes accompanied by equally colourful musicians and, the finale, flamenco dancers!
You were so right when you said we would love Buenos Aires and that Victoriano would look after us; he did, and was always incredibly friendly and helpful. But there is still so much to see; we'll just have to come back one day.
We fly out later today and hope to be able to leave our things in the apartment until about 1.45 pm if that's OK with you.
Thank you so much for sharing your apartment, your insights and beautiful Buenos Aires.
This apartment is an oasis of calm and quiet while still being ideally located close to many of Buenos Aires' best attractions. The interior is spacious and comfortable. The kitchen and bathrooms are very nice, and the huge walk-in shower is a particular nice feature, especially for longer stays. The outdoor patio is what makes this a special place. While many BA apartments have balconies or rooftop terraces, many overlook busy and noisy streets, and are unlikely to be used. The patio is at the back of the building, and we used it mornings for breakfast and evenings for wine and/or dinner. It makes the apartment feel even bigger than it is. This is a great choice for couples considering a stay in the best city in South America.
Just finished two weeks staying in this beautiful apartment, located in the most elegant and desirable part of Recoleta. The huge private terrace garden is only one of the many perks of this comfortable and elegant home. The original art throughout the home lends an air of elegance to this already luxurious space. Highly recommend it !
Location of apartment - ground floor, quiet, lovely patio.
Location of building - close to great restaurants, transportation, shopping, and the many sites of Buenos Aires.
Enjoyed staying here immensely. Well-appointed, very comfortable for a week or a month-long stay. Close to everything and the closed-in back garden was a haven at the end of each day. Local consierge/host was always available by IM and very helpful. Listing on VRBO accurately relays appointments in the apartment.
Lovely ground floor apartment in central Recoleta, tastefully furnished and a super comfy king size bed. So central to all the attractions, Recoleta cemetery and all the historic buildings within walking distance. Close to Jorge Newbery Airport too if you want to fly up to the Iguazu falls, a must see , and located not far from the Burquebus to Uruguay. Good security and Virginia very pleasant and helpful to deal with. Barry & Kathie fron New Zealand stayed 25 nights.
Virginia's apartment was exactly as described in the pictures and descriptions. The interior spaces were spacious and comfortable - we were curious how the built in sofas would work out, but they were delightful. The garden space is a huge bonus. We used it every morning for breakfast and most nights for dinner. The space is much more comfortable and useful than most balconies can be. Having a choice of outdoor and indoor areas makes the apartment especially well suited for longer stays. The apartment is located on the ground floor which made it easy to pop out to the grocery store or bakery (or ice cream parlor). The location in Recoleta is terrific. Anything you may need is within a short walk, and in most cases there are several choices. We were able to sample several bakeries, two supermarkets, and many restaurants within easy walking distance. To travel farther, taxis are plentiful, convenient, and not very expensive. We were there long enough to figure out the basics of the bus system, which is also convenient and VERY inexpensive. Working with Virginia was simple and pleasant. She responded very promptly to all our inquiries. We were so happy with our stay in the apartment and Buenos Aires that we have already rebooked with Virginia.
Incredible shopping, delectable restaurants, artisanal marketplaces, museums, art galleries and cafès at your doorstep. Walk, hail a cab, pop on the transit or arrange for a driver at any time. Vibrant, safe neighborhood.
