About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This fully furnished one-bedroom, one-bath, corner apartment. It has been completely remodeled with an emphasis on style and comfort. Unique in that every room has a fabulous view.

One of the outstanding features of this spacious Buenos Aires pied-a-terre is the spectacular view of the world famous Recoleta cemetery - the final resting place of Evita Peron. A walk through these opulent, above ground monuments is a tour of the rich and famous of Argentine history. Your apartment's ninth-floor view extends beyond Recoleta to the River Plate and the distant Uruguay.

Located in the cultural center of Buenos Aires, you are surrounded by sidewalk cafes, top quality restaurants, clubs, bookstores, boutiques, parks and theatres - one block from Recoleta Village Entertainment Center, two blocks from the Buenos Aires Design Center, near the National Museum of Fine Arts. A walk across the park, which hosts the city's foremost weekly art fair, will land you on Avenida Alvear - the most celebrated, upscale, shopping area in Buenos Aires. While in the heart of this bustling cultural center, the 9th floor location affords a peaceful night's sleep.

Centrally located, only 2 blocks to the new Recoleta subway station and even closer to cross town buses.

About Valerie

After working on and off in Buenos Aires for many years, in 2003 we finally came for vacation. We had such a great time...we loved the people, the architecture, the art...and of course the food. We decided we'd like to spend more time in Buenos Aires and in 2004, we cashed in our stock options for this apartment. Today, we live in Miami, but have a great manager who meets and greets our guests.

Valerie purchased this condo in 2004

Why Valerie chose Buenos Aires

We wanted to own an apartment in a major city that didn't require us to drive - a walking city, with good mass transportation or inexpensive taxis. It needed to have great architecture, style, art, music...and of course, incredible food.

We found Buenos Aires to have all this and more...and at a much lower cost than Europe. Like New York or Paris, every neighborhood is a new adventure.

We love the sidewalk cafes, the weekend art fairs, biking through the parks of Palermo. And while we always heard the steaks were great, no one ever told us about the homemade pasta...incredible.

What makes this condo unique

Incredible view of the Recoleta cemetery. Jim took the initial listing picture from our balcony in the early morning. He won 3rd place in the Miami Herald photo contest for this image.

The location of this property makes it convenient to visit all of Buenos Aires. The Micro Centre, San Telmo and La Boca are to the South, while Palermo and Belgrano are to the North.

Excellent place to stay in Recoleta

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed at this property for almost a week and enjoyed every minute. Great location and exactly as described in photos/description. Valerie and Max were attentive to each of our questions and requests. We had a delightful time and are hoping to return in the near future. The view from the balcony is amazing!

Great place to enjoy BA from

  • 5 of 5

I liked the apartment immediately, the manager Max met me to welcome me and showed me the apartment amenities, it was super clean (Veronica clean), and in a great location. A very comfortable place for our three person party.. Could not have been happier, what I saw online at VRBO is what I got. Just a block to bus. subway access, all of BA accessible for 50 cents US per ride, we used public transport to everywhere, very easy, buy a SUBE card, add money at kioskos, then tell the driver your destination, bop your card, easy peasy.

Wonderful views, lots of nice eateries, and bakery sweets. Too many great cafes to mention.

Valerie and Jim, thanks for hosting me and my best friends, we felt so safe and welcome in Recoleta.


PS: I was happy to have Max take me to the airport on my last day, felt very confident that ride would be reliable.

Amazing Experience in Recoleta

  • 5 of 5

We liked that the property was within a close proximity to everything in the barrio, great cafes & restaurants, shopping mall, Latin American museum, the famous Cemetery all within walking distance. Valerie and Max also were extremely knowledgeable about the area, quick to respond, kind and very helpful with any information we needed. We will definitely stay again at this property in Recoleta.

A great base of operations

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this great apartment in June. It was perfect for our needs. Walking distance from the Recoleta Cemetery and the weekend craft fairs. Many, many cafes and restaurants within a few block radius. A nice little market next door and a good laundry nearby. And a shopping mall and movie theater if you're interested. It was nice being able to leave for overnight trips and not have to pack everything up each time. As many people gave commented the view ftom the balcony was amazing.

The real asset was Max. He was very helpful and easily reachable. We arranged for him to transport us to and from the airport. It was great to have a reliable source of help and information.

The apartment was safe and easily accesible, with just a couple of steps to the elevator level.

We'll definitely consider returning.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

We decided for our first trip to Buenos Aries to stay in the Recoleta neighborhood and this condo was the perfect option for us. Great location, well equipped, comfortable, bright and airy one bedroom. We loved the beautiful view of the Recoleta Cemetery and the balcony for morning coffee and afternoon wine. Max, the local property manager, could not have been more helpful. Great restaurant and local activity suggestions. Spoke perfect English and was very quick to respond to questions or requests.
