We had a wonderful stay in Pipas and Sams appartment, which is situated in a very nice building in one of the best neighbourhoods of BsAs. We never met Pipa and Sam in person, but the communication by mail was always swift and effective. Sam arranged transportation from and to the airport by a private driver, Aldo, which was a very nice experience. The cleaning was done once a week by a very nice lady. We would for sure like to stay in this appartment again another time.
This was a wonderful experience. First the driver service: Aldo was waiting for us even if we arrived two hours late. He commented the trip home through B.A. When we arrived at the apartment, Victor, the concierge, opened the apartment and explained everything we needed to know. So the arrival was absolutely stressless. Then, Pam resolved a few little problems ver quickly and then, we started to enjoy our stay. The apartment is very cosy, a lot of light. A spacious kitchen wonderful in the morning for quiet and sunny breakfasts. The neighborhood is very central, extremely quiet (no noise at all at night).
The fact that the apartment was so great played a huge part in our pleasure to discover this incredible city. Thank you Pipa, Pam, Aldo & Victor, you make a very professional and pleasant team.
Pippi’s apartment is bright, spacious and very well located on a nice street in Recoleta. There is a comfortable bed, large kitchen and bath. We could have used more frequent towel and linen change over the two week period (which may have been available had we asked). Living room sofa is not comfortable and TV is located in bedroom, which is inconvenient for viewing. Host contact is limited to email as Pippi lives in London and Sam has moved to Mendoza. Our check-in and all problems were efficiently handled by Victor. Communication with Victor in Spanish was not a problem for us, but might be if a guest does not speak any Spanish—although Sam can always be contacted by email in English. Aldo, their recommended driver, who took us from and to the airport was very reliable and a fountain of information about Buenos Aires. This apartment is good value for either short or long term stays.
