Property description


We are undergoing a now 5 month renovation on this property (to be completed soon !!). Please see our NEW photos . We hope you like what you see. It is never easy to complete a renovation of a historical apartment ( and in Argentina it is almost an impossible task ) but with a little blood sweat and tears we finally completed the task.

This two bedroom / two bath apartment is located in the heart of the historical center of Buenos Aires called San Telmo. Right out the apartment’s front entrance is the enchanting Plaza Dorrego and yet you are only a few minutes walk to Puerto Madero making this one of the best locations in the whole city. There are tons of cafe’s, restaurants, bars, shops, etc. It is also the epicenter of the city’s Tango origins.

Not only is the apartment well located but we have tried to make it with all of your home’s comforts;* two air conditioners* wireless internet* Cable TV, phone and cell phone, stereo* Washer and dryer ( for longer stays only )* includes weekly maid service* fully stocked kitchen* etc.

Despite all the activity around, it is also very quite because the apartment is set back far from the street and plaza. It’s a top floor unit (2nd floor – no elevator) with lots of natural light and a wonderful view from the living room. You will find this to be one of the best values for your $$$.

The Neighborhood

San Telmo and specifically Plaza Dorrego is one of the most unique and interesting neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. Right outside the apartment you will find many cafes , restaurants, antique shops and Tango dancing right in the plaza. The architecture is old European with cobblestone streets and simply charming atmosphere.
We hope you will love it as much as we do !!!

Getting around

Many places you can walk to but Buenos Aires is large so you can catch Taxi 24/7 near the Plaza. Also there are buses nearby and the subway is 5 blocks from the apartment.

Year Purchased: 2006

About: Norm and Yamilis are the proud owners of the Plaza Dorrego Apartments. In fact they like to remember how the apartments and neighborhood of San Telmo played an important role in their relationship because this is where they met and got to know each other. They are now married and living in San Diego, California. Norm was born and raised in Canada but his pursuit of playing professional tennis brought him down to San Diego , California. He has played and worked in tennis throughout the world and Argentina’s strength in tennis attracted him to move there in 2004. Norm fell in love not only with his wife but also Buenos Aires , however work brought him back to to San Diego where he is currently the Director of Tennis at the Del Mar Country Club. (website hidden)_and_activities/ Yamilis was born and raised on a ranch in Formosa, Argentina and lived most of her life in Buenos Aires. When she met Norm she had her own business and couldn’t speak a word of English. Now Yamilis is speaking quite fluently while continuing her studies at Palamar Jr. College and volunteers several days a week at the Escondido Humane Society. She is enjoying her new life in San Diego very much but of course misses her family and friends in Buenos Aires.

Why San Telmo, Buenos Aires, Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, Argentina:
This property is located in one of the most unique areas of Buenos Aires. Not only is the apartment comfortable but you will enjoy the history, tango, cafes and restaurants that surround you !!!
