About the property

Great main floor bedroom with extra loft bedroom above the kitchen

Beautifully restored penthouse apartment on the fourth floor of a Parisian-style building with only 8 apartments. Fantastic location to see Buenos Aires. The apartment was restored over 9 months to reclaim the grand living at the beginning of the 1900s. No expense was spared to recreate the rich feeling with the imported wood while still modernizing the kitchen and bathrooms. Weekly maid service included. New pillows in July 2015.

Very high ceilings with ornate plaster work characterized by the wood detailing and original pinotea Norwegian wooden floors which create a warm atmosphere. There is an entrance hall, separate lounge/living and dining room, a master bedroom with a luxury queen size mattress and luxury bedding with a fully equipped ensuite bathroom complete with Jacuzzi bathtub and shower. Second bathroom 'loft-style' above the kitchen with a double bed and a half-bathroom. Designer kitchen with gas stove, dishwasher and refrigerator. Clothes washing machine as well and access to the rooftop clothes line. Living room has a Bose Wave stereo and cable TV. Wireless internet in the apartment. Mood lighting in every room. Maid service once a week. Air conditioned for summer and central heating (water forced radiators) in winter. There is an elevator (Parisien style wrought iron) so you don't have to walk up that many flights (unless you are working off all the great food in Buenos Aires).

About Dave Michayluk

I grew up in Canada and the US and fell in love with Buenos Aires and the Argentine culture so decided to put some permanent roots down in Buenos Aires. I come back at least twice a year to visit friends and to keep experiencing the ever-changing city. I made it my personal goal to visit every one of the 'notable cafes' of Buenos Aires - the ones that have been around at least a hundred years. One is on the same street as the apartment.

Dave Michayluk purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Dave Michayluk chose Recoleta

The apartment is half of the top floor of a hundred year old Parisian-style building. When I started looking for a place this one jumped out and definitely a very lucky find! After 9 months of restoration/renovation it is showing its full potential and I wish I could live here all year round.

What makes this apartment unique

This is the perfect location to visit Buenos Aires. Walking distance to Recoleta and the centre of Palermo, with restaurants and shopping at your door. Park Las Heras is two short blocks away and you can walk to the botanical gardens, the zoo or the Evita museum and there is an excellent hidden cafe for breakfast in the courtyard of another museum that is about 15 blocks away. So many hidden wonders and there is a continuously updated house guidebook that has my recommendations. I'll mail that in advance to help with your planning. Some of the restaurants (especially the closed door restaurants) are often fully booked in advance so it is good to do some planning. I wish I had two stomachs when I come to Buenos Aires.

Great space in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific apartment in a location that is a walkable distance from MALBA, the Japanese Garden and the subway, which puts Palermo, Recoleta, Teatro Colon and other BA sites within easy access. The apartment itself is spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and had no problems. We were also confident that should we have had an issue Dave, the owner, and/or Miguel would have taken care of things promptly. Dave provided excellent information about the apartment and was quick to respond to questions. Miguel explained how everything worked and helped us to quickly get settled in. I would definitely rent this apartment again if/when we return to Buenos Aires.

Beautiful Apartment in a great location in Buenos Aires

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in Buenos Aires, and could not have chosen a nicer place to stay. We stayed here for 7 nights in early July, 2017. The historic top-floor apartment is nicely decorated, and the bed was very comfortable with adequate pillows and blankets. We loved the classic styling of the apartment (and the awesome elevator)! It was more than enough space for two of us. The owner, Dave, provided fast email responses to questions, and provided lots of useful information about the apartment and the city. The local apartment manager was Miguel. Miguel was very helpful during check-in and departure, and was also very helpful in arranging transportation for us when we departed for the airport. The apartment is a few steps off Av. Sante Fe, with quick access to two subway stops. It is walking distance to numerous restaurants, cafes, museums, theatres, grocery stores, and shops. Our favorite restaurants were La Choza in Palermo and La Aguada right next door (best Empanadas in the city). We walked or took the subway everywhere, and only needed a cab when it was raining. You really do not need (or want) a car here.

We loved our stay in the apartment, and would rent it again if we have the opportunity to return to Buenos Aires.

Neighborhood Gem

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed the accommodations and location of the apartment! It was the perfect blend of residential, commercial, & a local experience. We appreciated putting our feet up after a long day of exploring, & liked that we could eat local, by just meandering to a few restaurants nearby. Loved that the subway was so close! Very convenient.

In addition, David was extremely helpful in providing tips on the city, arranging transportation and always quick to respond. Miguel, the property manager, was also wonderful! (Our driver Hector, also was great - prompt & reliable & a Safe Driver!)

Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful apartment.

Lovely Parisian style Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed Dave's apartment at the end of a very long trip through central and South America. It was the perfect place to both rest and recover, and to enjoy the excitement of Buenos Aires over the Christmas holiday. The apartment is very lovely and tastefully decorated. The bed in the master bedroom is super comfortable, and the kitchen is equipped with everything you would expect. We enjoyed the neighborhood and visited many of the local restaurants and shops during our stay.

The apartment is close to a large grocery store as well as amazing delis, fruit markets, cheese shops and wine stores. There is a great Havana coffee shop very close as well as a hundred year old cafe and bar (Tolon) a block away that is open 24 hours. The best medialunas are two blocks away but there are competing bakeries and a home made pasta shop that will make your mouth water. Good thing there is a gym nearby in case you want to work out so you can enjoy more! Walking distance to everywhere with the benefit of taxis at your door and the subway a block away. This is the best location to see Buenos Aires.
