Penthouse in best part of Palermo

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Julián Álvarez, Buenos Aires, Capital Federal, Argentina

The Space

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.

  • Pictures of the apartment are very accurate. You will not be deceived. Paz does not live in Buenos Aires but has put everything in place to give you support if needed. I would just say that it is located a few blocks away from Palermo but I kind of appreciate it because if you wanna stay home and not go out, it is very quiet and I am not sure it is similar in Palermo.

    Response from Paz:

    Thanks for the review, William. Hope you choose to stay at my place again if you visit Buenos Aires. Cheers!

  • Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Paz's apartment in Villa Crespo. The neighborhood is excellent and is walking distance from everything you need, including a great local restaurant (Mama Rossa's).

    While Paz is not physically located in BA, she was responsive via email and seemed very nice and helpful. Her cousin Ivan was available onsite for a few issues that we had with the apartment upon moving in (toilet, cleanliness) and was able to get them resolved within a few days.

    The apartment itself is quite spacious. The brown center table appearing in the pictures was not there, but otherwise the place is exactly as it looks in the pictures with everything in working condition. The air conditioning was particularly useful as it's been a hot and humid summer in Buenos Aires.

  • We were four adults and this place worked great for us.
    The apartment is located in a quiet residential area, not that close to the city attractions, but there is a metro (subte) station nearby and plenty of transit options available. Also, there are supermarkets, stores and other facilities at walking distance; and one great restaurant and one superb winery on the same block :)
    Ivan, Paz' cousin, was helpful and attentive. The apartment was well equipped and clean. It has independent AC for each room. The hot water works great. It is great for us that it has a washing machine. We also cooked a few meals and the kitchen was well stocked.
    Overall, I would recommend this place and I would gladly stay again.

  • I liked the place and stayed again. The neighborhood is charming, quite, and safe. Their are many restaurants and stores close. Paz is a good host and the communication was prompt. I would stay here again.

  • My partner and I stayed at Paz' place for 4 weeks.

    The place: it's location is excellent. A short walk, bus ride or subte journey from everything. Palermo Viejo, villa Crespo, Almargo are all walkable. The apartment is safe and clean, with more than enough space for up to 4-5 people. The kitchen was ready for us to use. WiFi was reliable, which was important to us since I was there partially for work.

    The host: Paz, though not located in BA herself, is very responsive, and had a local contact (Virginia) who helped us with everything. There were a couple minor issue with things in the apartment while we were there, but they were attended to right away.

    We would definitely stay with Paz again.

    February 2012
  • Stayed at Paz's penthouse for one month. The location is great. It's a few minutes walk from two subway stations and Plaza Serrano. There's a very nice wine bar on the next block. Everything in the apartment worked and the wifi was fast. I would definitely stay here again.

  • We really loved our stay here. The appartment is perfect, and so is the neighbourhood. I can only complaign about the website that I don't see as really efficient and easy to work with. Bu the stay in itself was just lovely.

  • Paz's house is extremely clean and well furnished. Everything works perfectly, the building is very calm and safe, while being close to public transportation and lively neighbourhoods with bars and restaurants ! I recommend staying here, we're really glad.

    September 2011
  • Paz is a great host. She answered all my emails promptly and I was welcomed immediately.

    Great apartment. Its big and could easily accommodate 3. It was clean and is walking distance to the subway, stores, and restaurants.

    I would definitely recommend staying here.

About
Hola! 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 2 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!
