Thank you for stopping by! Here's a description of the place and its location.
I am living again in Buenos Aires after 10 years travelling around the world, stopped by Ireland, Italy and Spain.

I've already hosted many guests from around the world and everyone I have met so far has been absolutely fantastic: I enjoy hosting and sharing my views on Buenos Aires, as well as tips, hidden corners, its history and favourite spots.

Bonus: If you're interested in discovering Buenos Aires' and Argentinian history, 'll be happy to share some precious tips on places not to be missed

ABOUT THE APARTMENT:
This 3 bedroom apartment is centrally located in calle Jorge Newberry at the heart of Las Cañitas, one of the more affluent and safe neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. It is a well-maintained and secure apartment.

Located on the 3rd floor. this very quiet apartment with its beautiful hardwood floors, and contemporary furniture offers the perfect comfort for your stay.

The apartment has been recently renovated: air conditioning and heating installed, just painted, bathroom re-done. You will appreciate the calm and the clear view of the quiet private courtyard while being in the very center of Buenos Aires. An strategic location to reach literally everything while being at a very safe place.

The apartment opens on a large living and dining area connected to a fully equipped kitchen, very bright with its own window eyeing on to several courtyards and gardens.
It offers a comfortable living and dining space and 2 separate bedrooms:
- The MASTER BEDROOM, with its queen size bed. This bedroom is perfect for a couple. There is a ceiling fan.

The SECOND BEDROOM, located next to the master room has two twin beds. It doesn’t have air conditioning but is fresh even on hot summer days. A ceiling fan is already installed anyway.

The fully equipped kitchen and the large dining room make it easy to enjoy home-cooked meals during your stay.

A professional maid is in charge of the cleaning and ensures that bed linen and towels are changed before and after stays. If you are considering staying in Buenos Aires for an extended period, a weekly maid service is available at a fee.

Though there is not a washing machine yet, there is a very convenient and not any expensive laundry in the area. I believe they even pick the stuff up and do the washing for you. I left phone number for the laundry guys on the fridge door for anyone who would be interested.

A parking garage is one block from the building and the charge only 57 pesos per stay (that is a day stay) for those ones that prefer renting a car and there is street parking permitted in most of the areas around.

ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD/LOCATION:

A little jewel tucked in between the neighbourhoods of both Palermo and Belgrano, the small neighbourhood of Las Canitas is trendy, young, sophisticated, modern, and antique, and its mix of personalities makes it one of the city’s most favourite spots to visit.

Bordered in between the avenues of Luis Marie Campos and Libertador, Las Canitas is characterized by narrow and tree-lined streets, both old and modern apartment buildings, and a very peaceful and a laid-back vibe. The area is set-up like a square map, about 6 blocks wide and 14 blocks long, and can be easily enjoyed by a stroll through the neighbourhood to take in the scenery. If you live in Las Canitas, you can literally find everything here; deli’s, bakery’s, supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, bars, pubs, clothing stores, shoe stores, hairdresser’s, hardware store’s, electronic stores, gyms, and the list goes on. The residents of Las Canitas love their neighbourhood and it shows by the endless people on the streets, busy if not full cafes and restaurants, people walking with their children and family pets, friends chatting on the corners of every street, and the general feeling that is in the air.

The hipoddrome is reachable just crossing Libertador Avenue which is at a throw of a stone, you can dine there, the restaurante is very good.
- Solar de la Abadía shopping center is at a 5 minutes walk.
- Chinatown, on Juramento and Libertador is found on a 10 minutes walk. And Cabildo y Juramento with its commercial center with plenty to offer just other few blocks from there.
- Palermo Woods and the Planetarium, where in summer during week ends the Municipality organize events, music festivals outdoors and drive-in cinema.
- The botanical garden and the zoo.
- The Islamic Cultural Center.
- Great areas for strolling: Palermo, Belgrano and Recoleta.
The MALBA (Museum of Latin American Art), The MNBA (Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes).
- A supermarket across the street, bakeries, pharmacies, ATM machines/banks, florist, wineries and other specialized shops.
The neighborhod of Recoleta is just 10-15 minutes on a bus. You can take the 59 bus to bring you into Recoleta.
Or the 29 bus which passes by Recoleta, Corrientes Avenue, the Financial District, Avenida de Mayo, the Casa Rosada and Boca Juniors Stadium.

SECURITY DEPOSIT
Please note that a fully refundable deposit of 150 Euros is required. It is authorized by Airbnb 24 hours before your check-in and released back 48 hours after your check-out.

CHECK IN / CHECK OUT:
I'm very flexible with check in and check out times and always try to arrange what's best for my guests.
Please remember to send me your arrival/departure time to Buenos Aires, flight/train and airport/station so I can arrange your check in and check out.
Take into account that I can be flexible as long as my guests are flexible as well. If on your departure date, there is a guest checking in, you won´t be able to check out just before midnight, in this case you can be requested to pay for that extra day or late check out.

I like to be present for the guests' check in all the times that this is possible. If this is not possible cause of work related issues, I will send an email with details a week before your arrival. In any of the cases you can contact me at all times on my email account, mobile number, (website hidden) or whatsapp.

IMPORTANT!!! It happens sometimes that taxi drivers at the airport charge abusive rates or could have abusive misconducts, in order to avoid all this to my guests I can offer organizing an independent car driver myself. You pay a decent fare avoiding un-wanted city tours all around the city and making sure you reach to the exact address. In the case you´d request this service you ll have to let me know flight numbers departing date and arrival date and time. Where you are coming from. And the car driver will be waiting for you at the arrival hall at the citibank ATMs on your left hand side after passing customs on to the arrivals area.

  • Ether was a lovely host. Very helpful. We were able to contact her with any issues. The apartment was lovely and the location also excellent. Kitchen could have had a few more items, however Esther was happy to resolve this. We loved buenos aires! Thanks Esther!

  • Esther gave us a fantastic welcome and was very flexible about check-in and -out times. She stored our luggage for us and even arranged transport to the airport for our flight home. The flat is nice and spacious, very secure, in an upmarket part of town, with plenty of shops, restaurants etc. nearby. Ideal if you are new to BA and want a little time to find your feet before exploring further. Very good wi-fi. There were only two of us - it might be a little cramped for four, but would be fine for a couple with 1 or 2 children. Kitchen equipment was a bit basic.

  • We had a great experience! The apartment is bright and very comfortable. Extremely well located, close to everything, and in a beautiful and non super touristy area of Buenos Aires. Exactly what we were looking for!
    We had days of extremely hot weather and the apartment behave pretty well in keeping us cool and comfortable. The A/C unit doesn't work that well, but there are ceiling fans in every room, and those ones did a great job. Very satisfied :)

    Thank you Esther for receiving us at your apartment!

  • Excellent location. It is exactly in the center of all tourist places. Close to good restaurants in an excellent neighborhood where we could walk at any time. The apartment is beautiful using an old Buenos Aires style. When we went to BsAs was a very hot week, so an air conditioner in the rooms would help a lot. It has only one in the living. Thanks to Esther, it was a very good travelling time

  • Very nice neighbourhood in Buenos Aires where you normally will not come very quickly as a tourist, as it is seperate from the famous tourist places, but close to neighbourhood Palermo. It was really nice to relax in the appartment with airconditioning from the very lively city! We felt safe and it was clean! Recomendable place!

    December 2013
  • This apartment is a mixed bag. Overall, I really liked the neighborhood, but would look for other options before I rented this apartment again.

    Pros:
    - Good location - fun, local area, both the area and the apartment felt safe, no street noise.
    - Esther is responsive - she helped us with cabs and gave advice
    - Loved the audio of everyday Buenos Aires life - the birds, families

    Cons:
    - The apartment is not in good shape. The furniture is uncomfortable, Furniture and walls have marks on them. Towels are threadbare.
    - Bathroom fixtures and kitchen are old and worn. While they may be clean, they don't look that way.

  • I cannot say enough about Esther and our stay in Buenos Aires! She was there to meet us and the apartment is in a fantastic neighborhood in Palermo - within walking distance to just about anything! Esther was kind, considerate, had a little basket with coffee and tea waiting for us and walked us to a local restaurant because we were starving! the 2 bedroom apartment was perfect for our family of 4 and having a lavandaria around the corner was so convenient for our laundry needs! I left Buenos Aires with1 a new very dear friend... nothing but 5 stars for this experience!!!

  • We took this trip to visit our daughter who is a student in BA for a semester. I had originally reserved the apartment for 3, but Ester was was very easygoing about letting us change it to 4 guests.
    Staying in this apartment was the best part of our trip! Ester was our rock! We felt good knowing that if there was anything we needed, she'd help us. It was very reassuring to know that although everyday was very busy and really different from our normal lives, we had a real home to come back to. It was roomy with plenty of storage space. The kitchen was very easy to navigate and the gas stovetop cooks better than my electric one at home! Our bedrooms faced a small courtyard a few floors below and were very quiet with very little street noise except for some morning doves cooing somewhere in the trees. We had wooden blinds to make it completely dark if we wanted to sleep, or we could open all the large windows to bring in sunshine and fresh air. The livingroom and kitchen windows face another apartment building with quaint looking balconies, overlooking a small cobblestone street, some trees, and a couple of cars in a tiny little parking lot. The shower was divine! The point-of-use hot water heater made it hot and ready for each of us to enjoy. There was plenty of room to get comfortable and move around, yet not so big that we'd lose our belongings. We were able to have a cozy meal together, play cards at the table, and just relax in-between excursions. The wifi was excellent, fast and clear throughout the apartment. The wash tub and laundry drying rack was a nice touch.
    Thank you so much Ester for making our stay so simple for us! I think that fact alone made all our crazy travel issues with that one airline seem much less difficult to deal with.

  • Esther is very warm and friendly person, she gave us a lot of tips what to do, where to go. Appartment was clean, simply furtished and had a charm. Near the location is (website hidden) station (hop on, hop off bus)-easy possibility how to do sightseeing in Buenos Aires. 3km away (30minutes walk, 20minutes by taxi) is Las Cabras restaurant with a good value for your money. Generally I would recommend to stay in this place for the hospitality,cleanness and location.
    Esther je ochotna a mila hostitelka, ktera nam dala spoustu rad ohledne Buenos Aires. Byt byl cisty, jednoduse zarizeny s neuveritelnym kouzlem. V blizkosti bytu je zastavka (website hidden) (hop on, hop off). 3km od bytu (30min pesky, 20 minut taxikem9 je restaurace Las Cabras -> super cena za dobrou kvalitu... Tento byt doporucuji!
