This luxury 76sqm (820sqft) Recoleta apartment combines ultra modern amenities with authentic Tanzanian style, opening onto a silent internal garden. You will feel like ‘watu wa pwani’ (people of the Swahili Coast), with ebony carvings from the Makonde Plateau, a bookcase made from a Swahili dhow boat that plied the Indian Ocean, and your own private gallery of the best modern and traditional art and sculpture by leading Tanganyika mainland artists; all personally selected by the owner while living on the Swahili Coast. Perfectly located building offering rooftop pool, gym and Parrilla with views to the cementerio and the Rio del Plata – a one-off Buenos Aires experience. Excellently located in the safe historic Recoleta district only 2 blocks from the famous Recoleta Cemetary complex, and Plaza Francia.

This lace was great! Wonderful roof deck with a view of Recoleta Cemetery, great location, and it was awesome to have a home in town. The place was clean, and superbly decorated. I'd stay here again.
Flawless check in and detailed instructions for getting in and set up. Apartment was as advertised, and very welcoming. Great neighbourhood, super safe building.
Rick's apartment is perfect.
Very spacious, well decorated, with a nice small pool on the rooftop. Located two blocks from the marvellous Recoleta cementery. Nice restaurants around.
Recommend it !
El apartamento es de un tamaño ideal para una pareja. La cocina es equipada suficientemente, el baño es funcional.
Nuestra estadía en el departamento de Rick fue muy buena. El departamento es muy lindo y cómodo como se puede ver en las fotos. Cuando tuvimos un inconveniente con la luz del baño, Rick muy amablemente fue personalmente a solucionarlo.
El edificio está muy bien ubicado, la zona es linda y segura, con muchos locales de comida, tiendas de ropa, cine y supermercados.
Rick's apartment is located within a pristine building in one of the best neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. The apartment itself is big enough to accommodate two people comfortably, as it is reflected in the photos.
Unfortunately, when we arrived around 6pm, the whole place smelled very strongly of mildew, especially the bedroom. We suspect this was a byproduct of washing towels, and probably sheets, and leaving them in the apartment to air-dry (the towels were hanging on a drying rack in the kitchen when we came). We opened all windows in an effort to air out the place, and though that seemed to help, we decided to go out instead until we had to go to bed.
My husband and I had booked the place for three nights, but after spending one night in this environment we felt our allergies getting progressively worse. We left the next day.
We are very grateful to airbnb for listening to our concerns and being able to accommodate our early exit. Under the proper care, we think Rick's apartment can be a good option.
I regret that Cecilia and her husband experienced an issue relating to their allergies, to which they obviously suffer a particular sensitivity, however this in no way reflects upon the airiness and lightness of the apartment. Buenos Aires had recently experienced over 3 days of continual rain, and that coupled with its proximity to the Rio de la Plata makes it a city that experiences year round humidity, as is widely known.
The apartment is located on the eighth floor, receives sunlight all day, has 2 large balconies, multiple sliding doors, and air that passes through from one side of the building to the other. It is always well ventilated and immaculately presented.
We found the apartment to be just as it is in the photos. Rick left a detailed list of amenities and how to use them. The area was very safe and lovely. Perfect for a couple, Ideally located to all cultural attractions, restaurants, shopping. We walked everywhere easily. I would definitely recommend this and would stay again. Thank you Rick.
