20 foot tall ceilings in Living & Dining areas. Classic historic architecture
I fell in love with Buenos Aires and bought this beautiful apartment in the historic and charming area of Recoleta. You can share some of the excitement and interest I discovered by renting this truly unique and beautifully furnished home away from home (greater than 2,200 Sq foot) apartment yourself. I also own great properties in Thailand (Pattaya) and Australia (Melbourne) for rental and you can find them all on HomeAway.
Hamish purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Hamish chose Recoleta
I think Buenos Aires is the most vibrant cosmopolitan city in South America. Recoleta is probably the best known part of Buenos Aires with everyone wanting to visit the famous cemetery just a few blocks away from my apartment. You can practically walk everywhere in this central part of BA and just soak up the wonderful vibrant atmosphere and amazing architecture.
What makes this Apartment unique
Loads of fabulous restaurants, coffee shops, supermarkets and art galleries are nearby and you are close to public transport to the city via bus or subway (subte) is 300 meters. There are buses within 25 meters of the front door. The popular shopping precinct of Santa Fe ave is just a 5 minute stroll from the apartment. You are surrounded by beautiful classic Buenos Aires architecture on every corner.

Perfect apartment in perfect, upscale location
Excellent service and property! All amenities as listed. Hamish and Ezequiel are perfect hosts. If looking for a safe and ideal location, close to major points of interest and easy access to transportation, you can’t ask for anything better! The apartment is so large and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glassware and utensils. Very comfortable stay. Will probably book again in the future.
Charm from the front door to the living room.
This is a fantastic apartment in an historic building, located in the Barrio Norte/ Recoleta area, in a very safe walkable neighborhood.
This apartment oozes charm from the front door to the living room. There are very high ceilings, an amazing master bedroom with adjoining master bath with a shower, and a loft with a TV/washer.
There are two additional bedrooms, and as a party of three, we had access to the upstairs loft/bedroom, which also has an adjoining bathroom and somewhat low ceilings, and a very low threshold. Great for children, but it can be difficult for a tall adult. (The third bedroom was on the main level and was locked.)
The sitting room was beautiful, as was the adjacent dining room. The kitchen is somewhat funky, and the quality of the kitchen supplies, cookware, and dinnerware do not live up to the high standard of the beautiful decorative touches throughout the apartment. This was not a problem for us because we preferred to dine out.
Ezekiel, who manages the apartment, was lovely and extremely helpful. He met us upon our arrival, explained the apartment to us, and was more than helpful in getting us started on our Argentine adventure.
We had a wonderful time staying in Recoleta. The home was set-up wonderfully. They thought of everything a traveler might need. Beautifully spacious and no street noise. Beautiful and historic. Close to all the places you want to see. Subt is a few blocks aways, grocery store around the corner and great cafes abound. Hamish was a wonderful and thoughtful host. Best place to stay!!!!
Great Location, Huge Apartment, Very Comfortable.
The apartment was perfect for our family. Plenty of room. Plenty of bathrooms. Great location. Easy access to the entire city by taxi, bus, or subway. We used a taxi the most since they are so plentiful and affordable. The majority of the taxi rides were under 100 pesos which is about $5. We would definitely come back and my mother who lives in Buenos Aires will be recommending this to all of her out of town guests.
Hamish's home is beautiful and the Recoleta is a great neighborhood from which to explore the city. BA City Apartments was great - they provided transportation to the airport and gave us an introduction to the apartment on the first day.
Good location, spacious home
We enjoyed our stay here. The home is very nice, and had everything we needed. The location was good and allowed walking everywhere. There are restaurants, shopping, grocery stores within easy walking.
Our only challenge was with the internet, and since we were on a working vacation, we rely on good, relatively fast internet connection. Some days I had to walk down to Starbucks to get work done. Otherwise, this was a great place to stay during our short visit to Buenos Aires.
Jane was a great guest and it was gracious of her to seek out alternative internet access during her stay when ours went on the blink. Since Jane visited I have personally replaced the entire internet hardware in the apartment with the latest mesh wifi technology from Asus called Lyra. There are now 3 x wifi Lyra mesh transmitters located strategically throughout the apartment and the speed and through put is fast and reliable.
For great shopping. From the apartment walk down Juncal and over Pueyrredon for about 7 blocks until you get to Avenue Coronel Diaz. Turn left towards Ave Santa Fe and in 3 blocks your will come to Alto Palermo Shopping Center. The best value things to buy are from the local Argentine shops and chains rather than the international brands.
