About this listing
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.
This is an antique apartment , in a low rise neighbourhood. Most places you'll find here will be in some kind of tower, and probably lack any soul.
Surrounded by places to eat, cafes and clothes shop, whilst not being on or close to any main roads gives the apartment a distinct , cosy and holiday like feel. This literally is the best corner in the area.
Bedroom 1 has a super expensive, high quality mattress, the type one only finds in the best hotels. It is euro king size. 2 m by 2m.
bedroom 2 has a queen size mattress, a little more firm, but also high quality.
Both bedrooms have a complete black out option.
The kitchen/diner/living room is a great space for socialising, cooking and enjoying your food/drinks, whilst watching the world go by, if you choose. The balcony is a small but cosy space(smoking allowed here only). There are a table and chairs, with some plants on the balcony.
You have cable tv, a high quality oven/hob, professional pans to cook with from abroad, a juicer, a blender, fast wifi internet and all you need to be self sufficient.
Whilst you do get some garbage/supply trucks passing occasionally, the apartment is not noisy. most of the background noise is of people talking whilst walking in the street. i personally find this welcoming.
This is a safe zone, with no hidden nasties, you can walk the streets at 4/5/6/7 am close to here with no problems, which is more than can be said for many of the places you'll find.
We can accommodate parties upto 7, provided some are children.
Filter coffee, iron and board supplied.
shared terrace on top floor.
Interaction with Guests
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 1 block away, and the subway 8.
Please dont use shoes in the house. it brings in dirt from the streets. Be aware that dust will build up if the balcony doors are left open for long periods. its just the way the air is in this city. the floor is a lot nicer to walk around on if these things are kept in mind.
The terrace is upstairs, go anytime you wish. its shared but only our friendly neighbour patricio and his kids use it sometimes, no one else goes there.
if the futon under the front bedroom mattress bothers you, remove it and place it down the side of the bed.
WATER THE PLANTS and dont smoke inside. We are trying to create some privacy and nice smells on the balcony, and for this we need help keeping the plants going. if you can be bothered to do a few, just the large pots with jazmin and flowers. forget the hanging ones and cactus.
DO NOT PUT OLD COFFEE, FOOD, OR SHAVING BITS DOWN ANY SINK. PUT THIS STUFF IN THE BIN PLEASE .THE PLUMBING HERE IS INEFFICIENT. THE SINKS ARE NOT FOR ANY TYPE OF WASTE. THERE ARE WASTE CATCHERS IN PLACE IN THE SINKS FOR A REASON. PLEASE LEAVE THEM THERE.
THE PLACE HAS FLOODED BEFORE FOR THIS VERY REASON. IF THESE RULES ARE NOT FOLLOWED, YOU COULD GET WET! SOME PEOPLE PUT SCRAMBLED EGGS, MEAT FAT AND ALL SORTS DOWN THERE, THIS REALLY IS NOT COOL. PEOPLE HAVE CAUSED SERIOUS DAMAGE, ON TWO OCCASIONS, TO THE WOODEN FLOOR THROUGH NEGLIGENCE OF THESE RULES. THE NEXT PEOPLE WHO DO THIS WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR A NEW FLOOR.
