Ximena, our hostess, is one of those people who make you proud to be part of the human race. She made our family welcome immediately, thanks to her her excellent English and incredibly gracious, generous nature. After our 20-hour busride from Iguazu, we were in need of TLC. Ximena went above and beyond, making sure we had all that we need (including access to her rooftop BBQ and a private pasta-making lesson!) Her home is huge and comfortable, with bathrooms in every bedroom and large gathering spaces (eg, separate big living and dining rooms) for a family or large group of friends.
The apartment is on the top floor of a lovely building in the heart of Recoleta. The large terrace on the roof is an incredible bonus, providing outdoor living space in the middle of busy Buenos Aires.
Ximena is in the process of turning her lovely private home into an apartment that is available to all Airbnbers--and what a gift that is. You will know right away that this is a special place, whether you believe in good karma, feng shui, or just dig a beautiful crib with funky art and big rooms.
Our family of four large adults would like to convey our deep gratitude to Ximena, Rocio, Antonella, Jessy, and the family in Bs As who made us feel so much at home. In ways large and small, they made our journey to Buenos Aries into a trip of a lifetime.
Cómodo departamento en una inmejorable ubicación, muy amplio y equipado.
La casa, el barrio y la anfitriona Ximena son lo máximo y lo mejor en Buenos Aires. 100% recomendable.
Ximena was a great host and went out of her way to help us before and after our arrival. The apartment was lovely and in a great location. Would highly recommend.
The location is perfect. It is walking distance from several nice parks, restaurants, ice cream, and shopping! The apartment is huge and the terrace and pool are just delightful. Ximena is a very kind a gracious person. This is a real home, not a professional rental apartment, and is quirky and comfortable.
Very nice place and very large. We had a New Years party here with 11 of us altogether and the place was perfect for hosting our large group. The building is well located and the amenities are a nice touch. I would give the place 5 stars if it were a bit cleaner and if we were told ahead of time that a cat was going to be in the apartment as well (2 of us are allergic, but luckily we were able to keep the cat on the roof away from us and it was not an issue)

About the Host, Ximena
I am an absolute Buenos Aires lover, I really adore my city and over most the Recoleta district where I was born. Mother of four, started this hosting business in 2004 when my third child was four years old and about to start school all day long. The prospect of a lot of spare time made me look out for something to do that could be compatible with raising kids, so here I am hosting travellers in my spot in the world, sharing all my tips and secrets. Buenos Aires, Recoleta.
