About this listing
Super comfortable 3 bed + 2 bath apartment. Lots of light, big living area, AC in every room!
Located in one of the most up and coming areas in the city. Ride safely on the bike lane passing through the front door to trendy restaurants and shops
Palermo is a great neighborhood, but it's big. My home is at the edge of the best part of Palermo. It's very safe (I lived there for 10 years) and everything is within walking distance.
The huge Jumbo supermarket is a 5 minute walk away. This is a great place to buy groceries if you want to keep costs down or prepare a special meal. For everyday needs, a corner store is even closer. A subway stop and multiple bus stops are a 5 minute walk away as well. If taxis are more your style, you can hail them from just down the street. When you rent the apartment, I'll provide you with all the local details.
My past tenants loved staying here. It's on a peaceful, cobblestone street that feels authentically Argentinian. Yet there's plenty of action a short walk away, like Plaza Serrano and all kinds of restaurants and stores (including an Italian restaurant across the street). Want to do something touristy? Prefer to relax? Itching to shop? You can make this decision each morning when you wake up.
The apartment is at the top of a six-story building and there are no other apartments on that floor, although there's a very small apartment that is half a floor up. The elevator, with an old-fashioned door that you pull to close, brings you straight to your door.
A family, two couples, or three friends can stay here very comfortably. The two main bedrooms are at opposite corners of the apartment, each with their own full bathrooms. The third bedroom has a single bed with a desk, and can be used as a den if you need it. There's plenty of closet space in every bedroom, a clothes washer, and drying racks that you can use on the balcony.
My maid is amazing and has been helping me for 4 years. She'll come each week to clean the apartment (and of course before you arrive as well) at no extra cost.
Buenos Aires gets hot! There are 4 air conditioning units: one in the living area and one in each bedroom. For the winter months, there is ample heating as well. You also get high-speed wifi internet access, cable, and a telephone for local calls.
Interaction with Guests
I live in Canada but my family is in Buenos Aires. I am the main contact through email but I will always give you the cell phone number of a person to call in case of emergency.
The apartment is in the border between Palermo and Villa Crespo. Both neighbourhoods are known for their restaurants and shops. Villa Crespo keeps a more traditional Buenos Aires look while offering a great mix of traditional and modern food and design. Palermo has become the most modern neighborhood in the city, with international-looking cafés, restaurants, clothing stores and bookstores.
You can experience both neighborhoods in leisurely walks near the apartment.
Very close to several bus lines and subway
The apartment building is small and everyone knows each other. We have very friendly neighbours and we hope to have friendly guests as well.
Like in any apartment building, everyone is expected to be considerate with regards to noise, especially after 10 pm.
Most elevators in Buenos Aires have doors that open and close manually. People from other countries sometimes forget to close them when they get off. Please, make sure you close BOTH elevator doors when you leave, if not, neighbours will have to take the stairs. Thanks!
About the Host, Paz
My name is Paz and I'm from Argentina. I currently live in Vancouver, Canada where I'm studying Sociology. I have previously studied English/Spanish Translation and I also went to film school.
I love traveling! I lived for several months in the US, a year in Spain and I've been in Canada for over 3 years now so I know what it feels like to look for a place to stay in a foreign city... I hope I can help other people with that process in my home town!
