Location doesn't get much better than this. You have a balcony over looking a vibrant street, 2 unusually comfortable beds, a fully equipped kitchen and minimal but stylish lay out. Probably the best corner in palermo.
Lovely antique apartment in palermo.
Only 2 blocks from plaza armenia(nice park) / eateries/organic food / boutique shopping / fashion district / yoga / gyms/laundry/bars/plaza serrano/hair dressers.
Taxis are available on all of the streets around the flat, buses are 2/3 blocks away, and the subway only 7 blocks.
Secure and safe zone . Location wise it doesn't get any better than this.
You will not be troubled by any vagabonds in the streets surrounding the apartment as its lively and well protected by various security and police on corners and outside shops. This alone is worth a great deal as many areas in Bs as are not so safe(especially if you are a stand out tourist)
2 bedrooms with luxury superking(2 meters by 2 meters) and queen size beds (firmer). The bedrooms have complete black out options, lamps, ceiling fans and AC, along with lots of storage space.
The master bedroom is very dark and very quiet , which, in conjunction with the luxury bed creates the perfect sleeping environment. You will not find a more comfortable bed in rented apartments or any hotel, even 5 star than the one in the main bedroom.
The second bedroom has a big window overlooking the street, but also has a black out shutter for your sleeping hours.This mattress was also expensive and very comfy but more firm.
Clean and recently decorated/dvd player/full length mirror/wifi/speakers/ceiling fan in the living / high ceilings/ marble top kitchen/ antique furniture/ lots of storage space,wooden floors/friendly neighbourhood/balcony overlooking vibrant corner with table and chairs for morning coffee/smokers.
32 inch flat screen tv, nespresso machine, fitted kitchen, black out shutters also in the living room.
The living room/dining room is open plan with the kitchen so you can stay sociable while cooking-there are high quality pans/hob/cooker and utensils.
The living room is bright and you can watch the world go by while you do your emails.
Shared roof terrace that is rarely used and is not in the photos as air bnb photographer forgot(you can just go there anytime, you dont need permission)-there is full sun from early in the AM to around 6pm
The bathroom is small but cute, with a shower and small jacuzzi bath. There is a bidet also,plus a hairdryer.
there is a second toilet.
There is a futon under the second bedroom mattress ready for the extra person if need be(that would be person 5). 7 people can and have stayed before, provided at least 2 are kids. even though i say 6 people can fit, for that to be comfortable, some of the guests would have to be children. In this respect the apartment is not fit for 6 adults . please don't be put out if it transpires i can not accommodate you as this is the only way i have to explain what is and isn't possible. 7 people have stayed comfortably before, of which 2 were small children.
Everything you could possibly need is close by, and as far as locations go, you'd be hard pushed to find anything better than this. its as safe as can be in the blocks around the apartment .
There is also no major construction going on nearby that will affect you, as there is with some other listings.
you are not out on a main road somewhere or in an ugly neighborhood.
While there is no pool, you are not stuck in a modern high rise, with no vibe-life is all around you(without your sleep being disturbed at night-there are only eateries close by, no bars or clubs in earshot). The streets are lively a lot of the time, but with the sound of people walking and talking.
There is a hotel a few streets away that charges 200 usd per night per room for 2. you cant cook there and the room is just a one room +bathroom set up.
Email support with owner(who has lived there 5 years), local manager to help with any logistics. we can help you enjoy your stay with plenty of info should you require. this place is not an investment property, its home.
The higher nightly price reflects the fact that 5/6 can sleep in comfort, and in the perfect location(better even that most of the boutique hotels). Its still considerably cheaper than some nearby boutique hotels, and much more convenient as one can save on eating out by cooking at home.
This location will not be beaten at this price, no hidden nasties , loud noise or security issues to worry about.
shared terrace on top floor.
Between myself and the property manager (for the times im not there), you will have efficient channels of communication. There is a wealth of advice in my info page also. feel free to ask any questions that may assist.
You are surrounded by Cafes , places to eat and cool clothes shops. Its as safe as it gets in Argentina. There is life around you 24/7, without suffering the noise of a main road.
Taxi is the best way for tourists to travel, but the bus stop is 4 blocks away, and the subway 9.

El apartamento estaba muy sucio. No pudimos ni sacar la ropa de las maletas de como estaban los armarios.
La primera noche tuvimos que dormir en un hotel porque el dueño, Rowan, no contestaba al móvil
Mar and inma were asking to come back and stay in march, so it cant have been so bad. here is their email.
There is some stuff in the fridge in good state. You can take them if you want. Thats why we have not decided to throw them away.
We are leaving the apartment now.
Please confirm if the flat is free 2 and 3 of march.
Awaiting your news and thaks for everything.
Mar and Inma
When they arrived they did not think to ring the door, and i was asleep on the floor, waiting for them. they also got a free night at the end, even though it was their mistake.
They complained about many things, but in the end they wanted another booking at my place, so make up your own mind about how they really felt.
Mid night check ins are not normal for anyone, and they can be tricky. this time, the girls did not use common sense and ring the bell, yet they like to avoid all responsibility and blame anyone else instead.
This is only 1 of 3 bad experiences with guests in almost 2 years of using air bnb for various purposes, but in the end, everything worked out ok...so i am not sure of the point of this review.
Rowan's apartment is great and in the heart of Palermo SOHO which is one of the best neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires. There are amazing bars and restaurants right on your door step and the vibe in the neighbourhood is incredible! We experienced a delay with check-in and the second bathroom was used as a storage room so we had to arrange for the cleaner to remove storage and clean, but other than that, we were very happy with the apartment. I would recommend Rowan's apartment!
Great apartment in a great location right in the heart of Palermo Viejo. Very beautiful place, nicely decorated, with a beautiful balcony. A minor issue: in one of the two bedrooms an aircon from the building next door makes some noises during the day, so if you are noise-sensitive it might bother you a bit. Fortunately, it was always turned off during the night.
The apartment was perfectly located and beautifully appointed. Rowan and his team were easy to work with, from outside Argentina before we arrived as well as during our stay.
I can't say enough about how great the neighborhood is as a home base during a stay in BA - more cafes, restaurants and shops than we could visit in our 4 days.
We were 5 people and stayed comfortably with shared beds.
I highly recommend this apartment and Rowan.
Apartamento muito agradável e num bairro ótimo de Buenos aires. Muitos bares e próximo ao metro. Foi tudo (website hidden) e meus amigos adoramos!!
Rowan' apartment was perfect: well located, super clean et well equiped!
Rowan is the perfect host. He answered very quickly any questions we had, was very helpful and is also a very friendly person.
It was a pleasure to spend a week in his apartment.
El apartamento de Rowan es tal como se lo describe en las fotos, es muy acogedor y todo funcionaba a la perfección. Esta ubicado en una muy buena zona de la ciudad.
No tuve ningún problema para coordinar la entrega y devolución de las llaves y siempre fueron muy amables y puntuales.
Si vuelvo a Buenos Aires no dudaría en alojarme nuevamente en el apartamento de Rowan.
Great place and perfect location! Very comfortable and has everything that you will need for your stay. Rowan was accommodating and accessible when necessary.
We are a 60+ couple who just spent 4 weeks in Rowan's apartment. It is amazing, in an amazing setting. Spacious, clean, and in what must be the perfect location in BsAs. The bed (in the back bedroom, the only one we used) is one of the most comfortable we have slept in. Even though it was winter, we only needed the (quite efficient) heating system for a few days now and then. We didn't really use the kitchen for anything other than breakfast (but yes! there was a citrus juicer that we could use to make fresh oj), since in the late evenings we tried out a bunch of the amazing restaurants within walking distance. The whole rental process was flexible and friendly. Highly recommended.
What a great apartment, thanks Rowan and thanks Brigitte who stood in for you. Probably the best location in BA, nice friendly neighbours, very safe (there is a friendly policewoman and store security guard outside all day long and even at night, it feels totally safe), one block from Le Pain Quotidien (the greatest bakery in South America) and one of the best Mexican restaurants in town, as well as the usual fabulous bars and parrillas. The apartment was well heated (important in winter), decent kitchen for basic cooking/heating things up, extremely comfortable beds and living room, a lovely varanda for our smoking friends and receiving guests (caught the sun nicely during the day), lovely wooden floors, plenty of power outlets/adaptors, nice TV with HDMI cable ready for us to plug our laptop in and watch movies, super fast internet (I measured 20Mb), and generally a really comfortable place to both use as a base and to hang out in.
We actually had 5 adults + 2 kids and there was plenty of space since there is a double futon to sleep on as well.
