“Fabulous location and apartment - we enjoyed our stay”
I rented this apartment along with another one a few blocks away (AX1) for some family members. Both properties were very comfortable and clean. Before booking, I called the owner Mike and he answered all my questions and booking was very easy. He explained that he had just updated several items in the property and the apartment was exactly what I expected from the photos. (In fact better as there was a huge new TV in the living room). I loved the location because everything we needed was a few blocks in any direction. There is a comfortable sofa bed in the living room which they supplied with pillows and blankets for my kids. The superintendent of the building, Kala was super friendly and was always eager to help us find something that we needed in the area. We spent a fabulous vacation in Buenos aires in large part due to this unit. We would stay here again.
“Great owner ---Poor manager---result terrible maintenance of apt”
I stayed in a-2 for 6 weeks ending Dec 19, 2013. As I have mentioned to the owner, Mike, that the apt was not luxury as it is presented on his website. I was shocked and disappointed from the first minutes in the place, and told the manager's son this. He didn't care. Dirty, chipped and water damaged furniture, dirty windows and curtains, unclean floors,dead and alive roaches, paint coming off walls and ceilings in every room, bathroom wood surfaces worn out without stain, towels paper thin,soiled duvet, and linens cheap and scratchy. The quality and condition was more like inexpensive apts I have rented in other countries. I am writing this because I have seen that the apt website appeared not to take a2 off the rental market for 3 months as, Mike had told me he would, in order to do the massive repairs necessary to make it "luxury". The apt pictures listed are very old and depict the apt when the renovations were new. In Nov-Dec 2013, the apt did not look like the photos at all. And the daily screaming, singing neighbor guy is not a renter,as told in another review comment, but lives in the apt next door. He screams (sings poorly) all afternoon and most evenings the same song. This is only topped by the very loud street noise with streaming buses if any window is open.
Response from the manager First of all I wanted to preface this response by thanking the rental guest. She alerted me to several shocking things and that my property manager really was neglecting my property. I had a longer term guest immediately before this guest that left this post and didn't have a chance to see the property for a while. I was shocked to see the property in this condition. There was apparently a leak above and it caused some damage which my property manager did not address. I still wish the rental guest would have emailed me during her stay because I could have moved her to another property. I never once got any complaint email during their stay. If I did I could have addressed things immediately. It wasn't until she got home did she email me. Still, I appreciated being notified of these things. We never said we would take the property off the market for 3 months. We told the guest we would take it off the market as long as it took to fix and address ALL of these things. Indeed we took the property off the market for 6 weeks during which time we have addressed all of these problems. And we have recently had a guest that was very happy with the property. I also feel it's important to mention that this guest booked this same property last year and cancelled their stay. We were kind enough to give her the cancellation fee as a credit and also discounted the property. We do agree with her that the property manager for this property we had did a horrible job and we have since terminated them and got a new property manager and they have done a great job. We are very proud of this property. MikesBAapartments
“Rent with confidence from Mike”
If you want to rent with confidence, rent from Mike. The apartment will be exactly as described and the service is fantastic. You will not be disappointed. We took Mike's transfer service to and from the airport. Although it might be slightly more expensive it is definitely worth it to coordinate checking in and out of the apartment. It also is very dependable. Our apartment was very well located. It is a very safe neighborhood and we felt very comfortable here. It is about 3 blocks from the subway (very easy and inexpensive to ride) next door to a major K-Mart style grocery store and within walking distance of the cemetery. There is a manager for the building (Kala) who is very helpful and friendly. The apartment is spacious, very comfortable, well equipped and light and bright. Although it is on a major street, this particular apartment faces French. It is amazingly quiet. I am a light sleeper and we slept with the bathroom window open every night. The only time it is noisy is on Saturday night when the neighborhood seems to party all night. You would probably not hear that if you closed the bathroom window since all of the glass is double- paned. We cooked a lot in the apartment and found it very well equipped. There was even an automatic juice squeezer. The furniture was comfortable, the bed was comfortable. We had the apartment cleaned once and they did a great job. What more can I say? It was much better than we anticipated.. The Internet service is fast and very good. It took us awhile to work out how to use the cell -phone but it came in handy in booking restaurants on line that text you confirmations The TV only has Spanish stations so we didn't really use it. There is an I-Pod player (two in fact) and CD and DVD players. There's lots of closet and drawer space.
“Great place to stay in Bs as”
I was looking on Vrbo for a rental in the Recoleta area of Buenos aires and came across this apartment. It was great! I loved the style of the apartment and the feeling of being a resident rather than a hotel guest. We were within walking distance of Recoleta cemetery and it was easy to hail taxis to travel to other areas of town. Mike and his team were really helpful and included thoughtful things in the apartment such as a cart for groceries, a local cellphone that you could purchase credit for to avoid international cell charges, CDs with tango music, referral for a very friendly airport transfer driver, good internet service, etc. The resident apartment manager was very sweet and let my son pet her two rabbits. The only downside was that there was a gentleman in the apartment or nearby who practiced singing the same song very loudly throughout the day. Thankfully, he did not persist late into the night, but it was rattling in volume. This might not be the place for guests who want quiet anyway, since it is in a busier area. Overall, this was an awesome place to stay and worked out great. Good combo of classy and homey. If you are thinking of booking, do it!
Response from the manager Thanks so much Sarah for taking the time to leave feedback. You were wonderful to deal with. I'm so sorry to hear about the guest next door. We have never heard that complaint before. The next door owner also rents their properties out short-term so they must have had someone singing but I wish you would have called us as we could have went over there and asked them to tone it down. It's never been a problem before. We are thrilled you enjoyed the property as much as our other guests have. Thanks for your trust and business and we look forward to assisting you and your family again in the future. MikesBAapartments
“Great apartment, great location”
We spent eight nights in this apartment in Buenos aires in May 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed it! The apartment itself was just as advertised. All the photos accurately reflect what you will see when you get there. The place was clean and in order. Mike and his staff were perfect to work with. Mike must have his smart phone with him 24/7, because every time we emailed him before, during, and after our stay, he would reply within minutes. That's great service! The apartment location was perfect. We were within walking distance of many things to see and do in Recoleta and Palermo, and it's only a few blocks walk to a subway station. The neighborhood is very same, with tons of people on the sidewalks night and day. We never felt unsafe for even a second. The building is well-kept and very secure. I loved the old-fashioned elevator! I highly recommend this apartment for anyone who is looking for a nice home-base for your Ba explorations.
Response from the manager Ken, Thanks so much for taking time to leave feedback. You and your group were absolutely wonderful to work with. I'm so happy you loved this property as much as our other clients have. Thanks again for your trust and business and we look forward to assisting you the next time you return to Buenos Aires. We are thrilled you loved the city so much. MikesBAapartments
“Great apartment in a great location and honest full service from”
We loved this place! Our son is studying in Buenos aires and we visited him for ten days in april 2013. Friends recommended MikesBaapartments and we're glad they did! This apartment is in a great building in a fun neighborhood, Recoleta. The apartment decor is simple and elegant, the space is huge and gracious, the full kitchen (stove, oven, full refrigerator) is flooded with light, and the neighborhood is busy and vibrant, with a full supermarket (Coto) right around the corner. We particularly appreciated the mobile phone, free with the apartment, and the beautiful new TV with CNN in English. (We are from Boston, we were in Ba during the horror of the Marathon attacks, and we were helped by the sense of connectedness through CNN.) We have no complaints, only compliments. Working with Mike was the best: He is honest, straight-forward, and quick (within seconds!) to reply to any emailed question or request. Finally, he set us up with airport transfers to and from the airport to the apartment. (There is an extra charge.) When I think back, this was extremely helpful. No worries about cabs from the airport, not having the right currency yet, getting to the apartment at the right time for someone to meet us and open the door, etc. All was coordinated and seamless. We can't say enough. We had a great trip and Mike and this apartment were a big reason!
Response from the manager Hi Kathleen! First of all, I'm so happy that you and your family are well. My thoughts and prayers go out to all from Boston. I really wanted to thank you for taking the time to leave such wonderful feedback. I'm thrilled you loved this property as much as my other guests have. You and your family were a joy to work with. My staff commented how wonderful you all were. Thanks again for your trust and business. It's so valued and appreciated. I look forward to assisting you again in the future. MikesBAapartments
“Quaint building in great location”
Everything was as advertised. interesting area near Recoleta and subte, love the elevator and building.
“Great Rental apartment in Ba”
Michael and his staff were true professionals. Our flight into Ba arrived hours ahead of schedule and all we had to do was leave a voice mail for Michael's staff and our driver was there waiting for us. The apartment itself is small and cozy. There is a grocery store right around the corner and plenty of other places to eat/shop. We walked to the cemetary but did use cabs too which were easy to hail right outside of the apartment building. Overall a great experience from start to finish.
“Good location, lots of room, excellent service”
Spacious and well-laid out apartment in a vibrant area of Recoleta, Buenos aires. Support from the owner and property manager was excellent. Everything worked out exactly as planned. We recommend adding in the airport transfers.
“location, location, location”
If this is your first trip to Buenos aires, A2 is the perfect location. Centrally located, with all of the best of the city within walking distance. or an inexpensive taxi ride. As we spent 7 weeks enjoying all the city had to offer, this apartment had everything we needed to make our stay memorable, and, we look forward to returning to Buenos aires, and working with MikeBaapartments. Highly recommended for value and service.
