Interaction with Guests
only as much as they ask for. Like a hotel concierge. Prefer to be "invisible", except when needed. Happy to hang out a bit and advise guests but also, enjoy private time and life, as many travelers do. Will introduce entire house to all guests, upon checkin.
The greenspaces, gardens and parks; the access to both, bike trails and public transit. Sense of "town and country". The US embassy. Plus, the security, cleanliness, shopping and "horsey" sites, nearby.
absolutely. Subways, buses, taxis and bikes, all available, just outside the front door.

La experiencia fue muy buena y encantadora. El apartamento está muy bien ubicado, al lado de un parque grandísimo y hermoso! Está muy cerca de avenidas principales por donde pasan muchas rutas de buses. El barrio es muy seguro. Diedre está muy pendiente de tu comodidad. El apartamento es muy lindo y súper limpio. El comfy sofabed es muy cómodo y todo es muy tranquilo. Se duerme delicioso! Muchas gracias Diedre por tenerme en tu casa!
I have loved staying at Dierdre, she's an amazing woman. The appartment itself was very comfy, arty and had a peaceful touch of feng shui to it :-D
Thank you for hosting me,
I totally enjoyed my stay at Dierdre's in Buenos Aires. Her place is located in the marvelous Palermo area which invites you to explore nice places for dining out & drinks. The accomodation and the public spaces are very clean and tidy. Dierdre is a totally great host - very nice, helpful and always up for great conversations and laughs! I strongly recommend Dierdre's place to everyone!
Great host and a very beautiful apartment in one of the best neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires!!! I can just recommend it!!! If you are the type of person who needs a private room this might be not the right choice. Otherwise just go for it :-)
Dierdre was one of the nicest hosts I have had. She is super friendly and can give you all kinds of advice on what to do. She also took me to a wine tasting party when I was there. I had a great time!
Thank you Dee. Your apartment is wonderful. You are so nice and helpful. I had a perfect time and it was never boring. You absolutely enjoy hanging out with people. Say hi to Willie and to Gigi.
Such a great stay Alma Mia. Convenient, quiet, very safe and upscale neighborhood. Dierdre was a super accommodating hostess. Everything worked out for the 3 nights that I stayed!
