The location is superb. The flat is in Barrio Norte, which is an interesting neighborhood, calm and safe. It is also filled with great shopping, sidewalk cafes and tempting restaurants. Fifty meters from Av Santa Fe, two blocks from the Bulnes subway station and one block from bus stops providing access to all other parts of the city.

About The Owner

My name is Flavia de la Fuente. I was born in Buenos Aires in 1959. I'm a film journalist. With my husband we directed a film magazine called 'El Amante / Cine'. Also, we directed for four years the Buenos Aires International Film Festival. Now, we live at the beach, and we run together a blog called “La lectora provisoria” where we write about films, books, life, etc.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1997

Why The Owner chose Buenos Aires

My husband and I bought this apartment in 1997. We chose this neighborhood, because it's very convenient. You are near every place you need to go in town. Also, there is a subway station two blocks away, and buses and taxis are all around. Filled with cafés, restaurants, the Alto Palermo Shopping Mall and a safe atmosphere it’s a perfect place to be. We lived there very happily until 2004. Then, we decided to move to a town at the beach and spend only one month a year in Buenos Aires, in our flat. So, we decided to rent it during the rest of the year. In this way, we can afford having two homes with everything we need, one in Buenos Aires and the other in San Clemente. To manage the apartment in BA, the person in charge is my friend Mariana Ventureira.

What makes this apartment unique

It's a real Buenos Aires apartment with everything you may need in your home. Comfortable, full of light, with great beds, best quality linens, cozy, full of books and CD's, original paintings by Argentine artists. The location is great: two blocks from the subway and the Alto Palermo Shopping Mall. The maid comes twice a week.

Enjoying the books, music, and art in this wonderful room!

VRBO Bear stayed here

May 26, 2013

Live like a real Argentinian - be surrounded by art, literature, music and film! This home truly feels like a HOME, but Buenos Aires style. You will be inspired just looking at the incredible art and book/music collection. Start your appreciation for art at home, then go explore Buenos Aires’ incredible museums! The bed was incredibly comfortable, a nice touch was two firm pillows and two soft pillows for whatever your preference. We were greeted with fresh flowers, a bowl of oranges, chocolate, and coffee for the morning. The apartment was impeccably clean, the sheets were so fresh they may have been brand new and again, the bed was SO COMFORTABLE! The sunlight through the massive windows was so lovely - and a comfy reading chair invited me to sit there and relax. The apartment is well equipped with two TVs with several English channels and all the soccer channels you could ever want. There are fans and AC’s in every room and the kitchen is well stocked with cookware, so we sometimes made our own meals. We loved the old fashioned keys (think middle age cathedral or library keys!) and a fun, old world elevator as well. We were greeted by a friendly manager who helped us book soccer tickets, made sure we had everything we needed, and even offered to get us extra groceries. The apartment is centrally located, extremely safe with a doorman and keyed entry, with a NYC or old Europe type of feel. The street has tall trees and it is fun to sit in the chair and read while watching the dog walkers and passers-by. Just a few steps from the apartment are dozens of café’s, restaurants, shopping, and easy access to the subway and bus system. If you like clean, inviting, artistic, authentic, friendly and an amazing location, then book here!

Good location

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location and the size of the apartment. The apartment is located a couple blocks from Subte D which is very convenient to move around town. We enjoyed the possibility to hosted family and friends and cooked for them considering there is a full kitchen with a dishwasher!

The apartment was clean before we got there and also one more time while there.

A few suggestions: 1. to offer better quality and more quantity towels. The towels were a little old and some have holes.

2. change shower head. The water was going everywhere!

3. Oiled fauces and doors. There was a lot of noice coming from it.

Overall, the apartment is good. Perfect for a long stay.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very comfortable and well located. Easy access to other areas with numerous options locally, restaurants, cafes, shops of all kinds.

The apartment itself is very quiet. Flavia is a very gracious host and was available for our needs. Her agent, Mariana, also was extremely willing to help in any way. All our expectations were met and we will return. We heartily recommend it.

Memorable and Great stay in the Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I stayed in Flavia’s apartment two full weeks and had a great time in Buenos Aires. Her apartment is very spacious, cosy, clean, well-equipped and very comfortable. Immediately after arriving in it we felt at home. As the apartment is situated in Barrio Norte, it is very easy to reach and discover all parts of Buenos Aires by the underground, buses but especially by walking. Flavia is very attentive and helpful and looks after her guests perfectly and with big heart. I definitely want to come back.

Great Experience in Recoleta Neighborhood Residence

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Flavia's place for an entire month. The apartment is exactly as shown in the photos. Since the beginning of our communication with Flavia things rolled nicely with her and her assistant Mariana, lovely lady!, who was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived. The residency is located in the hug of BA- walking distance to everything, including buses and suite. The building is quite and Demetrio, the building manager, is very nice man who made himself available in case we needed something. There were two housekeepers- Benjamin, lovely & hard working young lady and Tita, nice talkative lady. One came on Mondays and the other one on Thursdays from 9am to 2pm. This was a little too intrusive for us who went to bed really late and enjoyed quite and slow mornings. Overall the experience was super! I will recommend this rental and I will rent it again next in BA without hesitation.

Very authentic and comfortable apartment in Buenos Aires

  • 5 of 5

I only have good comments about this apartment. The location is great, the apartment is spacious, comfortable (the beds are especially great!), clean and well equiped. It really feels authentic and unique, with a cosy atmosphere. The owner is very helpful and cordial. We stayed for almost 2 weeks with our young daughter and we had a wonderful time! After a few days it felt like home! We would love to come back!

Owner's Response: Dear Beatriz, It was a pleasure to have you at home and also to be in touch with you in order to do all the arrangements for your trip to Buenos Aires. And also thanks a lot for your nice review! I just wanted to say that in the future, if you come to my place again, you can ask me to have a maid only once a week. I do that with guests who want to have more privacy. So, I hope you can come back and we will arrange everything in advance. With warm wishes and thanks again for everything, Flavia
