The Space

Located in the Recoleta neighborhood—considered to be the most elegant and vibrant area of Buenos Aires — this ultra luxury apartment is just one block from the Recoleta Village. It is very spacious with over 1,000 sq. feet (93 sq. meters). The apartment gets plenty of sunlight throughout the day due to its location on a higher floor. It features a blend of Japanese minimalism and some of the local architecture. It has sliding glass doors separating some rooms. The apartment has it's own private entryway off the elevator for maximum privacy and the elevator can be locked to prevent access. There is also a service entrance in the kitchen for cleaning staff and food delivery staff.

The apartment has been completely renovated and is a 5 star property. It has a balcony with a tranquil view. The apartment is located on the back of the building so there is no street noise. It is a perfect alternative for those that do not want to be cramped in a smaller hotel room or apartment. No expense was spared renovating and furnishing this apartment. Most of the furnishings are imported from Europe.

The apartment has two bedrooms. The master bedroom has access to its own private balcony. The master bedroom has a King size bed. The second bedroom has a King size bed as well. Both mattresses are Four Seasons Presidential suite mattresses. There is a totally renovated master bathroom with marble throughout the bathroom. The bathroom also features a very expensive custom made bathtub with rainfall shower from the ceiling. There is also a full bathroom in the office as well as an additional guest bathroom with toilet and sink. The kitchen is a chef’s delight and has also been completely renovated with high end materials including marble countertops. The kitchen is furnished with everything you would find in your home.

The business center has a custom designed desk, high-speed Internet access and also Wi-Fi wireless internet is available throughout the apartment. There is a USA phone with a New York City number and you can make and receive unlimited calls to the USA/Canada **. Also, your friends/family members/business associates only need to call a NYC number and they can reach you in Buenos Aires with NO international long-distance charges. The business center has it’s own full bathroom with custom-made rainfall shower from the ceiling with wood deck flooring.

This apartment is perfect for a longer term stay in Buenos Aires or pampering yourself for just a few short nights. Our company owns or manages several apartments in the area if you are coming with family or friends and all want to stay in the same area.

The amount spent on renovating and furnishing this apartment alone is more than the cost to purchase some apartments here in Buenos Aires.

  • Great host and very easy communication. Airport pickup was convenient and payments were smooth. Great experience. Would highly recommend.

  • I rented this amazing apartment with a friend who was visiting me during my stay abroad. We had such an amazing time...the space was excellent, the showers/baths were great, and the beds were really comfortable. It really felt like a luxurious experience and I can't wait to hopefully stay in the same apartment again! Michael was an excellent host as well; very communicative and timely responses. There was always someone available if anything was needed, and check-in/check-out went smoothly. Overall a truthfully awesome time!

  • Apartment was awesome and had plenty of space for the 4 of us. Really close to Recoleta Cemetery (Evita's Tomb) and Buller Brewery as well as great shops. Loved Recoleta and would rent from Mike again.

    He is very considerate and timely in his responses and to my questions. The onsite manager was present to help us during check in/out.

  • pros:
    Michael was very prompt in responding.

    There is also a property manger and concierge service.

    Location of the apartment is just a block away from the famous Recoleta cemetery, and a few blocks from the classy shopping street Av Alvear.
    There is also a small supermarket nearby and pharmacy.
    Overall a very convenient location.

    Having 2.5 bathrooms was really useful for a party of 4.

    The apartment is pretty much what you see in the pictures.

    cons:
    The air conditioning could not be turned on the day we arrived but they did send someone to fix it within half an hour of our arrival.
    However, it would have been good if the property was checked beforehand.

    On the second day, we realized the air conditioning in one of the rooms could be turned on, but was not cool. So another workman was sent it in rectify it.

    Sheets were generally clean except for one pillowcase which had some dirt stains on it. Pictures were sent to the concierge and the pillowcases were changed immediately the next day.

    Other small complaints include slightly dusty floor, and the phone in the house did not work. The workman also had to fix the kitchen tap on our first day there.

    Overall, it felt like the apartment had not been lived in for some time, and things needed some fixing. It would have been good if they were fixed before we got there, but the next guest should have no problems.

    The concierge company has patchy service (really depends on who you get).
    Our personal concierge was very responsive and helpful, but the lady who checked us in, promised to get back to us on a number of things but never did.

    WIFI worked!

About
Successful American entrepreneur that believes that you should live each day like it's your last. What would you do if you had 3 years to live? I would travel the world and see places and do things that most people only dream about. I truly believe that you should be with the person you enjoy being with, you should visit the cities you've always dreamed of visiting and you should live in a city that you are passionate about. I found that most people complain about various aspects of their lives yet they do nothing to change it. To me it's very simple. If you aren't happy with your partner you find another one. If you don't like your job - quit and find another one. If you don't like the city you are living in - move to another one that you like better. Life is what you make of it. Most people lead very ordinary lives. They have an ordinary job, live in an ordinary house and do ordinary things. I found that if you want an extraordinary life you must do extraordinary things. I enjoy traveling around the world and exploring new places and cultures but Buenos Aires will always have a special place in my heart. I love sharing my city with new visitors and people that have come back over and over. All of my properties are located in the best areas and are extremely well furnished and fitted out. Many locals use very cheap mattresses and horrible furniture but that is where my properties are different and one of the reasons why they are amongst the most requested in all of Buenos Aires. I feature premium luxurious mattresses, upscale furniture, latest electronics, wi-fi Internet access and Cable TV. In fact, my properties and I have been featured/mentioned in The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Economist, HGTV's House Hunter's International, Consumer Traveler Magazine, BBC and many other places. I have more apartment rental experience and knowledge in Buenos Aires than anyone out there. In fact, I created the luxury apartment rental industry in Buenos Aires and was the model that all other companies/owners followed. I've been renting out properties in Buenos Aires since 2002.
