About This Listing
Our home is like a mini countryside in the heart of the city, very quiet, green, relaxing and full of light. We are within ten minutes of the famous restaurants and fashion district of Palermo Soho and Hollywood in a safe and interesting neighborhood called “Chacarita,” very close to train and subway stations.
Our house is the “old milkman’s house,” built early XXth. It maintains its original charm and character and was completely renovated in 2011.
The house is very spacious with various common areas such as the main patio, the swimming pool terrace and the yoga studio. There is also a common kitchen on the 1st floor with everything you’ll need to cook meals at home.
You will have plenty of privacy and also the opportunity to meet other guests.
The bedroom is light filled. It has a double bed, armoire and dresser. It leads to a bathroom with a great shower.
There is an ecosystem in our house and that attracts different kinds of birds; this is thanks to Jorge who keeps the patios very green. He has a passion for gardening and puts a lot of energy in taking care of the plants and flowers!
If you come and visit us in summer you will be able to pick grapes directly from the vines. And from Autumn to end of winter you will be able to pick the avocados straight from our tree!
The rest we'll leave for you to discover!!!
Please let us know if you have any other questions prior to booking your reservation. We look forward to your stay at La Casa de los Pájaros.

I chose to stay at this lovely place on two separate occasions and that is because I feel that I found a true home away from home with Fann & Jorge. Theirs is a kind of place that pictures cannot do justice to and their hospitality cannot be adequately described with words. My hosts went a long way beyond their duty to help me plan my trip around the country and they were never short of tips and ideas on anything related to Buenos Aires. I hope to be back again!
La casa es maravilhosa y mui florida. Es perto de lo subte B y de los lindos restaurantes y boutiques del barrio Palermo Soho/Hollyhood, que para mi novio y yo, fue lo mejor lugar, junto con Recoleta.
Fann y Jorge estavan en el campo y su amiga, Lexi, nos hospedo lindamente. Conocemos Jorge y Fann, que son mui hermosos y con una simpatia sin igual.
Queremos agradecer por la gran oportunidad. Vamos a volver y quedaremos de nuevo en el mismo lugar. Lexi, gracias por todo! Estamos con saudades! Desculpe mi español, espero que compreendam! Muchas gracias!
I was very happy to arrive at Fann and Jorge's apt in palermo. The room was quite clean with private bathroom. I met them downstairs put my things away and began to converse with Jorge and his friend who was visiting. They made me feel very comfortable. breakfast in the mornings and they even threw a party the wknd I was there and all of their friends were very friendly. This is a true gem and it was a please to meet them and stay at there place. I really liked the vibe and would recommend it to anyone visiting buenos aires looking for a friendly, clean and safe place to stay. Thank you Jorge and Fann!
I spent a very relaxing week at the house of Fanny and Jorge. The house is a maze of color, vegetation and smell, all of which provide relief from the intensity of the city outside. My room was very nicely decorated and very comfortable. Both Fanny and Jorge are very welcoming hosts and did their utmost to make sure that I was happy and content in my surroundings. A real pleasure. Thank you.
This is a peaceful haven in the suburbs of Buenos Aires, and may suit many people. Fann and Jorge have a lovely home.
We believe in giving and receiving honest feedback, for we all learn from being open and honest done in a supportive way, otherwise the purpose of feedback is lost.
There was a misunderstanding regarding the facilities in our room, which were resolved immediately; however we felt that perhaps honest feedback is not really truly welcomed by Fann and Jorge.
The breakfast is not continental, it is argentinian. The steps to the accomodation are steep, and not easy, so beware if you have heavy large luggage or you have locomotor difficulties.
The accomodation is not close to the city, so you need plenty of coins for buses, unless you plan to travel by taxi. Coins are like gold dust in Buenos Aires, and it would have been helpful to have this information before hand.
Thank you for your valuable feedback.
There are nevertheless a few points you mentioned that aren’t quite right. We have offered you our help to bring up your luggage and your husband’s. We always offer help, especially when age, the weight of the luggage or another situation makes it difficult to bring the luggage up to your room. You didn’t accept our help.
Regarding our situation in BA, you are the first person to say that we are far from the city. We are in the city, a few blocks away from Palermo Hollywood’s many restaurants. The metro (5 blocks away from our house) takes you to the center in less than 25 mn, and there are numerous buses 2 blocks away to take you anywhere in town.
We have always given our guests the information regarding coins and the Sube card in order to travel easily by bus and metro,. Apparently it escaped us this time amongst all the information there is to give about the house and this inmense city.
Anyway, we keep a very nice memory of you and especially of the conversations we had with your husband about lute-making!
