1 Full bath
This spacious (78 m2/ 839 sq ft) and centrally located two bedroom apartment is furnished to a standard seldom seen in Buenos Aires vacation rentals. It features the high ceilings and original wood floors of a period building while providing the comfort and amenities of a modern apartment. Despite its central location on a main avenue, the apartment is quiet and filled with natural light.
It contains everything you need to feel at home, from a coffee maker and citrus juicer to basics such as a hair dryer and iron/ ironing board. The basic price includes cleaning and laundry service (towels/ sheets) once per week. The apartment can accommodate up to five people - two in each bedroom and an additional person on the mattress that slides out from under the sofa in the living room (pictured - the mattress and bedding quality is the same for this bed as for those in the bedrooms).
The location (Avenida Cordoba between Paraná and Uruguay) offers many transportation options, with 3 subway stations located within four blocks of the apartment (Line D: Callao and Tribunales, Line B: Uruguay) and taxis passing across the street at all hours of the day or night.
Some things that this apartment offers that you may not find elsewhere:
- A luxurious Jacuzzi whirlpool bath for two people
- 50 Mega WiFi throughout the apartment
- The use of two pay as you go local cell phones (only pay for what you use)
- A selection of guidebooks, maps, and books about local culture, cuisine etc
- A selection of local wines with no markup (just pay for any consumption at check-out)
- Extra large beds and pure feather duvets/ pillows/ Egyptian cotton sheets
- My extensive list of personal recommendations based on a conversation with you prior to your arrival about your interests and plans. I am also available around the clock to help you with anything that may come up before, during, or after your stay.
If you are interested, I can offer some or all of the following as part of a package (please enquire about pricing for the extras that interest you):
- Taxi transfers to and from the airport
- Twice weekly maid service
- Organic Weleda brand toiletries
- Fresh flowers
- Welcome bottle of wine or local bubbly

I'm a US/ UK national who has lived on and off in Buenos Aires for a few years, and I enjoy helping visitors to the apartment to make the most of their stay by offering personalized recommendations and assistance. As somebody who enjoys international travel and has stayed in places ranging from the sumptuous to the disappointing, I've learned a lot along the way and have used this knowledge to try to offer the best vacation rental experience possible to my guests.

“Light-filled, spacious and gracious central city nest”
I booked this spacious apartment for 6 nights so a friend and I could visit BA and be in a central spot that was safe and relatively quiet and clean. Christine's 2 bedroom apartment was perfect for us. Incredibly comfortable king beds, light-filled apartment, clean and simply but tastefully furnished, and within a 5 minute walk to Teatro Colon and about 10-15 minute walk to cool spots in Recoleta--we loved it! Christine was a very gracious hostess who shared her deep knowledge of BA and the country with us. Only a minor drawback was some repair noises coming from the next door apartment during 9 am to around 5pm but this is typical in a large apartment building from time to time. The location of the apartment is interior and not directly on the Avenida Cordoba, so no street noise could be heard. Great find!
Alojé en este Dpto. durante el verano; el Dpto. está impecable, todos los espacios muy limpios, amplios, cuidados hasta el mas mínimo detalle; habitaciones y camas muy cómodas. La ubicación es muy buena, céntrica, a un par de cuadras del Teatro Colón, y de calle corrientes. El edificio es muy seguro.Lo que sí debo destacar, es la excelente atención de Christine, siempre preocupada de que estuvieramos bien, entregandonos buenos datos de lugares donde ir, comer, etc., y de que no nos faltara nada, lo que le dio un gran valor agregado a nuestra estadía. En conclusion, mi próxima estadía en Buenos aires, sin duda será en este lugar. Altamente Recomendable. Gracias Christine por toda la ayuda prestada durante nuestra estadía. Hasta la próxima.
“Christine is a legend! And the flat is awesome too...”
This was my first vacation rental and what an incredible experience. The amount of time and effort that Christine puts into making your stay memorable is unbelievable. From providing you with a great to-do list before your arrival (based on your interests) to always assisting with reservations, recommendations and advising on just about everything at all hours of the day. And these are always spot-on! She even immediately sent me the link for a nail salon after I just mentioned I need to get my nails done.. As for the flat - just as excellent. Very centrally located, massive beds and a lovely kitchen and living area. And stocked with wine at cost price..bonus! I would absolutely recommend renting this apartment, and hopefully you'll also be fortunate enough to get to know Christine in the process. Thanks Christine!
“Awesome apartment - spacious, elegant and convenient!”
Our stay in Christine's beautiful Ba apartment came after 2.5 weeks of staying in modest hostels, that, while clean and comfortable, offered none of the perks of this apartment (which we rented for a comparable price). The apartment is spacious, clean and located within walking distance to a number of exciting sights. The apartment is close to public transportation and surrounded by shops and grocery stores. Christine is a great host - she communicated clearly and quickly with us, showed us around the area upon our arrival and - best of all - provided us with an awesome set of recommendations for our week in Ba. We definitely had a more unique experience because of her suggestions!
“Brilliant owner and accommodation! Part 1 (of 2)”
Firstly, this review is long overdue; we stayed at Christine's apartment in December of 2012. Quite simply, the entire experience was outstanding! Christine not only demonstrates professionalism as a property owner/manager, but is a delightful person. From the initial planning stages, her communication was consistently timely, thorough and helpful. I had a lot of questions about the apartment, location and cultural aspects in general and Christine always provided detailed and honest replies. I/we really appreciated her sincerity, valuable knowledge of the area and culture and overall support. Christine demonstrated the ideal balance of professionalism and genuine engagement. My review of the apartment is ideally summarized by indicating that when we return to Buenos aires, I will not spend any time looking for accommodation elsewhere and will be contacting Christine directly. The apartment is lovely - high ceilings, expansive windows, tasteful furnishings and unique architecture. We have allergies and sensitivity to lingering smoke and never experienced any symptoms. The lack of carpets, heavy window coverings and overall furnishings that tend to hold lingering odors was really appreciated and contributed to the clean and fresh look, smell and feel of the apartment. The apartment meets the requirements for all the practical necessities. The kitchen is stocked with basic equipment for meal preparation, however we only consumed breakfast and snacks there during our stay. The location is ideal, within walking distance of numerous attractions, restaurants and markets for food and other necessities. In addition, it is very close to a couple subway stops and taxis frequently travel the street as well. The apartment itself felt very safe with a secure entrance. The location felt safe as well and we walked home from dinner each evening at about midnight (clearly keeping mindful of common sense safety and precautionary measures). Out of space...see Part 2 for more
“Location, Value, Comfort, Friendliness...”
The appartmenet is near the Subte (metro/subway), bus, grocery store, Teatro Colon, Avenida 9 de Julio and Corrientes. The appartment offers the luxury of a home at a hostel price. It has very confortable beds... Cable TV (eventhough we did not get to use it since there was so much to do in Ba), stereo system for MP3 and very good internet. The building is well maintained with security and has fun antique elevators. Christine, the owner, was very helpfull and generous. Many attentions... and great after sale service! We liked the place so much we extended our stay and had to force ourselves to leave the city! Muchas gracias!
“Location with quirks”
This place has large rooms, good beds, good aC, high ceilings, and is out back of a building on a central avenida close to Teatro Colon and the city centre. Laundry, supermarkets, cafes are all close by, Recoletta parks, cultural centre, etc. just 10 minutes walk. Owner is helpful and provides loads of info. The building is old and maintenance work meant water off for a couple of days when we were there (discount on rent provided). Cleaning a bit of a problem as well. WiFi is excellent, computer is broken. This is a densely populated working building so expect noise from dogs, neighbour running a laundry service etc...a gritty, urban, Argentinian experience in the midst of some great culture. This is a bargain location, not deluxe.
“Quiet, yet central and very well located”
This is our second stay in this apartment, and we highly recommend it. Christine, the owner, is very professional in the organization of the rental, and she is more than helpful in making the stay very easy. The apartment is located in a building in a very busy avenue, but it is situated at the rear of the building, facing the center of the block, and it is very luminous and quiet. It is quite large with two well appointed bedrooms. The living room and kitchen are very light and the vibes of the flat are such that it is nice just sitting there. The internet is fast, and cell phones are included. Of importance in this city is that the area is quite safe, there is a caretaker on site during the day, and we have walked even at night in the surrounding streets. During the day, one can walk all over the center from the building. Countless cafes and restaurants are within walking distance, and Christine is helpful to help select (also check the online Guia Oleo). We hope to be able to stay there again in the future.
We had a great week in Buenos aires staying in this wonderful apartment. It has a central location but is set back in the building so there is no Street noise. The apartment is very clean and comfortable and beautifully furnished. Christine went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable and was very helpful when we need some local assistance. I happily recommend this apartment and would stay there again without hesitation.
Estamos muy agradecidos con la dueña del departamento la Srta Christine fuimos cinco los ocupantes y nos sentimos muy cómodos, cumplió con todo lo acordado, el lugar muy bonito, limpio, bien ubicado, lugar seguro, ademas ella es una persona muy hospitalaria y que demuestra interés por el bienestar de los residentes en su departamento. El contacto lo hice por internet y lo que se ofrece por ese medio es exactamente lo que se encuentra. Recomiendo a quien quiera visitar a Buenos aires se hospede en este departamento en el cual se sentirá muy a gusto y con las comodidades como si estuviera en su propia casa.
