Hi I am Agostina, an Argentinean who fell in love with Istanbul and its people. With my partner we love to travel the world, and meet places as a local would. We hope to give you a chance to enjoy our cities in the same way!

Agostina's apartment was the best accommodation of our trip. The layout was really nice with a big comfortable king bed in the loft and the mini split air conditioning was nice and cool and quite. The best feature of the condo was two enormous windows that let in lots of natural light, but were also équiped with blackout shades for a completely dark apartment. Another great feature was the rooftop pool to watch the sunsets and have a late day relaxing dip. Thanks again for everything Agostina!
If you want to feel the pulse of modern Istanbul, Agostina's flat is the ideal place to stay. It's a sensitive and comfortable conversion with a 5* feel; and after a busy day sight-seeing a lovely spot to relax in peace. The area itself is perfect for the independently-minded visitor: a short walk past shops both old and new in style there's tram to the heart of the tourist areas, bus up to the Bosphorous town, and a good few old and new school eateries side by side. And don't miss the amazing Ali Pasha Hamam for the ultimate Ottoman pamper before you go home. This area is fast changing so catch it before it's too late.
Appartement très bien situé, propre et très lumineux. La piscine n'a rien d'extraordinaire, nous ne l'avons pas utilisée.
Agostina's loft bedroom/one and a half bath flat was perfect for our stay in Buenos Aires. It was clean, well lit, had a great balcony for enjoying our morning coffee. The kitchen had all the utensils we needed for making breakfast or reheating leftovers.
Palermo Hollywood is a great neighborhood for exploring the city. There are a lot of restaurants and clubs in the neighborhood and Agostina's flat is a 10 minute walk to Palermo Soho (restaurants/shops) and to the Palermo Subte station (to take you to city center). When we didn't want to walk or use public transportation, it was easy to get a cab.
Upon our arrival by taxi, we were immediately greeted at the flat by Ileana, Agostina's mom, and her cute little doggie. A quick phone call from the airport was all it took to let her know we were coming. (Our taxi driver allowed us to use his phone since ours didn't work). Ileana oriented us to everything, made sure the cable TV was working and made sure we knew how to reach her if we needed anything. The flat was everything we expected, nothing fancy but adequate for our needs. Very clean. There were three of us. My adult daughter slept on the pull out downstairs and my husband I were up. Note: The stairs up to the loft could be trouble for someone without good balance, I will warn you. We cooked pasta one night in the kitchen using supplied pots and pans and produce purchased from a nice little market around the corner. The location is the best. So many fun restaurants you can walk to. This was our first AirBNB experience and it was quite satisfactory. Our host let us check in early, check out late and we even got a ride to the airport from a relative of the maid. He helped us with all our bags. That was a pleasant surprise and much appreciated. The whole experience was very easy, from booking and paying to checking in and out. It was a good value. We are happy campers.
Duplex impecable, muy acogedor. Las instalaciones impecables, los baños también. No necesitamos nada más y aparte había un almacén a la vuelta de la esquina.
We had a great time in BA - agostina had given us lots of pre info and helped organise lots of our itinerary before we even arrived and her mum was brilliant when we arrived helping us settle in (Although her dog was a bit noisy!!). Flat is lovely and really well positioned in the middle of great restaurants / bars in what turned out to be our favourite neighborhood. I can't recommend it enough.
Agostina y su mamá Ileana estuvieron siempre en contacto con nosotros antes y durante el alojamiento. Sumamente amables y con una comunicación fácil y rápida.
El apartamento es tal cual las fotos. Tiene todo lo que uno puede necesitar. Muy cómodo en todos los sentidos: desde su mobiliario hasta la distribución del apartamento. Súper luminoso, y sin edificios enfrente, lo que da una vista bastante despejada. Los vecinos del edificio tienen muy buena onda.
La ubicación es excelente. Repleto de resturantes, bares y bolichitos que supimos aprovechar tanto al mediodía como a la noche, moviéndonos a pie todo el tiempo. Y si se quiere ir a Palermo Soho, uno está al lado.
El garage es de muy fácil acceso y nuestra camioneta (que es grande) entró cómodamente.
Sin dudas lo recomiendo y volveré a alquilarlo.
The flat is perfectly located right in the heart of Galata and beuatifully furnished. We were a group of three girls and felt at home immediatelly – communicating with Agostina was always a pleasure. One of us was not familiar with the city yet – Agostina perfectly organised a shuttle from and to the airport from her. There would be no better place to start your Istanbul trip from. We hope to stay at Agostinas the next time we come back to visit Istanbul.
My partner and I just returned from a week in Buenos Aires where we enjoyed Agostina's Palermo Apartment. The flat is lovely and the pictures provided accurately depict the layout and furnishings. It was very clean and comfortable and provided a great home base for our stay. We loved the area (full of great cafes and restaurants) and with a number of small grocery stores for basics. By the end of our stay we were even brave enough to try the subte (subway) and there is a stop about 5 blocks away that we started to use to cut down on our walking times.
The king size bed is very comfortable and the the ensuite bathroom on the 2nd floor very convenient (the 2nd toilet / sink on the main floor is a great addition as well if you need a bit more space). The water pressure is great and the water is hot!
The Wifi connection is excellent and we appreciated using the small washing machine rather than sending out. Agostina also subscribes to a full range of cable TV stations and so we were able to find some English Language news and programing.
We are sorry not to have met Agostina in person, however her housekeeper met us upon arrival and did her very best in Spanish (and our lack of) to explain how the apartment worked and provide ups with keys. Agostina was a very attentive host and we were able to clarify a couple of issues via email almost instantaneously.
We loved Buenos Aires for the food, wine, neighbourhoods, culture and warmth of the people. Agostina's apartment complimented our enjoyment of our visit and we highly recommend her as a host and her Palermo apartment.
Agostina and her husband are very friendly people and great guests. They left the flat immaculately clean and tidy. They are welcome to come and stay again. I would highly recommend them.
Espero que hayas disfrutado tu estancia en la condesa; gracias por cuidar el estudio; bienvenida en cualquier otro momento.
Agostina and her husband were such a wonderful and considerate guests, it was a pleasure to host them! Making connections with other airbnb hosts who are also guests make this whole process more worthwhile! We would love to have them back in our home at any time!
Agostina is a very nice person, responsible, compromised and took a really good care of the house. Our communication was efficient and always fast. We want to visit her house in turkey for sure!
Agostina was a delight to have in my home. Only sorry that she could not stay a little longer so that we could show her a little more of our lovely city and share some warm hospitality with her.
The perfect guest and we would love her to come back one day.
Unfortunately Agostina had to expectantly cancel but her communication was great!
Agostina was such a great guest. Friendly, nice and tidy. Left the house in good order.
