Property description

Palermo Tranquilo is a fully restored, one hundred year old, two bedroom vacation rental located in a lovely residential corner of the Palermo neighborhood in Buenos Aires. With 4 meter ceilings, tons of exposed brick, a retractable glass enclosure over the patio, and three sections of outdoor terrace, the property is antique and original, while at the same time modern and comfortable.

If you know the city well, then you'll love the location, just blocks from the boutique areas of Palermo (but not so close to the boutiques that you feel you're in 'Palermo Disney'). If you are new to Buenos Aires, you'll find an authentic porteño living experience with just enough helpful input to ensure that you're comfortable. Tree lined streets, open skies from the terrace, and connection to the Earth & outdoors are all a part of the propriedad horizontal construction and experience.

The spacious home was recently renovated by its owner, an American expat with more than seven years of living in Buenos Aires. The concept is a unique take on the Buenos Aires vacation home: a down to earth sense of the truly authentic porteño lifestyle, in a real neighborhood, with modern amenities and elegance in the decor and fixtures. In other words: homey and real, with just a touch of luxury while not spoiling the price point.

Guests are encouraged to treat the house as their home. A rotating wet bar is available, which you will restock on good faith. So, if you use the last of something, you're encouraged to replace it for future guests. And it's also nice to leave behind some memorabilia in the Blog. A photo or two of you & your group enjoying the place, and some comments about your stay, really help to keep Palermo Tranquilo feeling like home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Kito grew up in a small beach town next to the ocean in Neptune Beach, Florida. He has lived in Germany, Amsterdam, Buenos Aires, Atlanta, and currently resides in San Francisco, California. Kito has traveled more than 45 countries, and was living in Buenos Aires, Argentina for the seven years between 2005 and 2013.

Why the Owner Chose Palermo, Buenos Aires, Argentina:
This is the second of two properties that I own in Buenos Aires. The first is next door and was my home for many years. When this home came up for sale, I just couldn't say no. I love the antique construction style from 100-year old Buenos Aires, and truly enjoyed the laborious process of renovating both homes. It is an art form, to bring out the classical elements, while also giving the space a unique and comfortable feeling that is one and only.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Every detail was considered when renovating this space. I took great care, styling the home for my own tastes, to bring out a comfortable and down to earth feeling in the space. There are many apartments available for rent in Buenos Aires, but almost all of them are missing 'alma' (or soul). Palermo Tranquilo offers a true taste of life in a residential neighborhood of Buenos Aires, and with the comforts of Palermo and modern fixing also there.
