One lovely bedroom with a balcony facing the street that accommodates 2 people comfortably. Functional bathroom with running hot water. Spacious living room facing a nice small yard with plants. Fully equipped kitchen.

2° FLOOR BY STAIRS IN PALERMO NEIGHBORHOOD
You just have to climb two flight of stairs and reach home!
LINEN, TOWELS, COFFEE, TEA & SUGAR: We provide clean towels, soap, toilet paper, linen and blankets. We also leave some coffee, sugar, tea and ingredients for you to use.
Besides the listed amenities, the most important fact is that our guests will access to a fully equiped apartment which is a real Buenos Aires´ citizen home (my cousin). As she likes so much travelling, we can offer her Happy House when she is away.
Interaction with Guests
I like to welcome guests in person, and so on their check out. Also, if they feel likely to go out toghether, I usually offer something to do.
Palermo is such a perfect place to explore the city. It is really well located for sight seeing, as much as for enjoying peaceful moments, because it´s safe, and riddled with bars, cafes and restaurants.
CINEMA, GROCERY & ALTO PALERMO SHOPPING
You'll find a cheap chinese market around the corner and if you cross the street you'll find “Disco”, a well-known supermarket chain in Buenos Aires. You'll also find one of the most popular cinemas in town “Cinemark Palermo” and a great grocery with fresh fruit and vegetables. You're also just one block away from “Alto Palermo”, a shopping centre full of stores and restaurants and a big Starbucks' Coffee. There's also a Natural Food Market one block away from home!
Well, as you can see, you'll be staying in a privileged neighborhood and if you like walking around, you'll come across a coffee store, laundry, natural food market, convenience store open 24 hours, restaurants, and almost anything you can wish for!
Part of the great value given to my apartment is it´s great location in Palermo/Recoleta, one block from Santa Fe Avenue where you'll find most buses lines, taxies and Line D Subway entrance (Bulnes station), so in almost 15 minutes you can be in either side of the city! You can go downtown and visit the wild “microcentro” or go uptown to Palermo Hollywood and Palermo Soho where most trendy restaurants and exclusive stores are. You are also five blocks from Las Heras Avenue, another very important avenue in Buenos Aires.
Other Things to Note
We have also created what we call the TIN OF JOY. This is a big tin full of sweets, chocolates, souvenirs and happy things that tourists staying at Happy House leave before checking out. The idea is to create a continuous chain of gratitude, love and good energy. So you can take whatever you want from the tin of joy as long as you leave something in return! :)

Mercedes was very welcoming and helpful. Her directions to the apartment were accurate, and everything went quite smoothly. The only criticism would be that there was a problem with the hot water. The shower was not that hot, and there was no hot water in either the kitchen or bathroom sink. Not a major problem, but slightly inconvenient.
Very nice apartment in a great neighborhood. We really enjoyed our 2 weeks stay in the Happy House. We warmly recommend it!
It was pleasant to stay at The happy house. Location was perfect and the appartment very nice. The only thing which we didn't like was that there was no gas in The appartment. Fortunately there was an electric shower but still...
Thank you for your review Gigi, and let me clarify the gas issue is due to a temporary manteinance work in the whole building, that hopefully will be soon solved.
I´m sorry that taking a bath with electric shower had affected you so!!! but please don´t forget you were fully aware of the situation, as you were correctly adviced by me before accepting your reservation request
Manuel est un hôte tres sympathique et agréable, il a tout fait pour que nous nous sentions chez nous .
L appartement est très bien situé dans un quartier vivant et commerçant, le métro est tout proche.
Une base parfaite pour découvrir buenos aires
We received a warm welcome from Manuel and his wife. After a late arrival, they took the time to help us get settled over some Argentinian parrilla at a nearby restaurant. Happy House was clean, bright and nicely presented. We found it a tranquil escape from the bustling grind of BA. Happy House is situated in a safe neighborhood with a supermarket, shopping complex and subway within a short walk. We recommend it.
Happy House was excellent. I was in BA for a conference and the apartment was perfect to set up base, close to the conference centre and close to all the nightlife of Palermo. The apartment was as described and Manuel went the extra mile to make me feel welcome. All the guidebooks and maps at the apartment were incredibly useful! At the time of being there there was an issue with the gas supply in the entire apartment block. However, I was fully aware of this beforehand and it didn't deter me from booking. An electric shower was installed before I arrived and Manuel dropped in an electric kettle the day after I arrived.
When I come back, I'd love to stay again.
Manuel's place is extraordinary. It's cosy and stylish and very well located. Apart from that he's just the best host you could imagine, extremely helpful, friendly and funny. We just felt like we had a friend at the very moment we arrived in Buenos Aires.
