This is a lovely fully furnished flat on an 8th floor located in the nicest neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires (Recoleta).

Pipa and Sam are great hosts and the location of the flat is perfect. Sam answered all our questions 24/7 and assisted in everything. Thank you so much! Looking forward to our visit next year.
Me and my mom had a great stay in Buenos Aires. The apartment is very nice, in a great location. It is clean, comfortable and well equipped... has a good kitchen, a large bathroom - the shower is also very good. Sam answered all my messages quickly, and was very helpful.Victor, the guy who gave us the keys and opened the flat was also very friendly. I recommend! Thanks for everything Pipa and Sam!!
Pipas apartment was great. The air conditioning was fantastic given the hot weather Buenos Aires was experiencing in late Dec/early Jan.
Pipa/Sam were great in helping us get into BA from the airport as well as help with general needs eg Laundry.
The only drawback was the location wasn't that close to a metro station. However, there are plenty of buses nearby. Just make sure you get some change as Buses don't accept notes.
I would recommend.
What a great location! Pipa and Sam were great hosts even though I never personally met them. They were easy to contact via email or phone and responded quickly.
The flat was excellent. Had everything I needed and then some. Felt like I actually lived in recoleta. I recommend the unit to anyone interested in staying in Recoleta.
Thanks for everything Pipa and Sam!
Fué una estadía muy agradable, el apartamento muy bueno y el barrio espectacular.
Gracias ambos anfitriones muy atentos y dispuestos.
Todo bien muy bonito apartamento
Very accommodating hosts. Lovely flat in a perfect location. Well worth it, I'd stay there again.
Had a lovely time in this apartment, located in a quiet area of busy Buenos Aires. The place is nice, a weekly cleaning lady keeps it spotless and changes sheets and towels. We did little cooking, food is not expensive there and exploring the many local restaurants is a pleasure, anywhere you eat if you go more then once the waiter knows who you are and tells you about the daily specials, without prompting. The building is older but this apartment has been renovated. The lift is of course an old fashioned pull the door open type, but it works well and quickly gets you to the 8th floor.
We will return in 2014!

What more can be said about the amazing and accommodating brother and sister duo that own this luxury flat. The flat was more than perfect for my stay in Buenos Aires and I couldn't have asked for a better location. Set in posh Recoleta, this jewel of a place was simply divine. Pipa and Sam were very responsive to all of our needs and questions and were really great about communicating. They also have a fantastic hook up for a driver to fetch you at the airport and bring you straight to the apartment upon arrival. I would highly recommend booking with their driver because not only is he extremely fair and reliable, but he shares his knowledge and life of Buenos Aires. When I return to Buenos Aires I will hands down book with Pipa and Sam because let's face it.... they are the best!
