Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Palermo Soho - Casa Thames in Palermo Soho
Sleeps 4. Doors off the hall add privacy between the bedroom and living room
I invite you to experience my 'home away from home' designed as a luxury apartment, not your typical rental. Large (690 sq ft) one bedroom apartment in Palermo Soho (Thames and Costa Rica) comfortably sleeps 4 adults. All the furniture and artwork I've personally selected. The apartment features lighting on dimmers, made to measure furniture, custom wall textures, rich wood floors and custom artwork by local artist Javier Herrera.
It is the perfect place to stay and enjoy the many restaurants, cafes, and shopping in the exciting neighborhood of Palermo Soho. Palermo Soho is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Buenos Aires and you will be right in the heart of it. Numerous Restaurants including French, Sushi, Argentine within one block. Grocery Store and laundromat is one block away. There is a bus stop on the corner and a 5 minute walk to the subway stop in Plaza Italia.
The kitchen features granite counters, stainless appliances, wine storage, microwave, under counter lighting and a bar with bar stools. The fully equipped kitchen includes most cookware, glasses. pots, pans, if you wish to prepare your own meals. There are many restaurants within a 1 block radius.
The living room offers a Phillips 32” flat panel LCD TV, slim-line stereo CD player with MP3 input, Phillips DVD player, and a cordless phone with voicemail. The sofa converts to a full size bed with sheets and pillows.
There is a small dining area as with a bar style table and four Italian bar stools. The condo has been designed with those in mind who might wish to prepare their own meals. Palermo Soho has the best dining in the city, but you'll appreciate the large kitchen and ability to make your own meals if booking a longer stay.
The private bedroom has a queen size bed, two night stands, a reading light, alarm clock, safe and large closet. I chose a Simmons Beautyrest Spa pillow-top mattress for the queen size bed.
The bedroom opens up to a large 5th floor balcony overlooking the street below. Being on the 5th floor helps isolate some of the street noise. The balcony is very enjoyable year round as you are right at the tree tops. This was always my favorite spot to enjoy breakfast or a glass of wine at night. And don't forget to check out the 8th floor terrace with views of the city.
The condo has a full size modern bathroom with sink and vanity, toilet, bidet, and a shower/tub combination. It features dimmable lighting, under counter accent lighting, and storage behind the mirror. All sheets and towels are provided.
Located in a newer building with well-lit contemporary entry, secure entry system, a modern elevator, and a terrace on the 8th floor with sweeping views of the city from 360 degrees.
There is cable, high-speed WiFi internet, a free loaner cell phone and weekly maid service included. We offer flexible check in and check out times as many international flights arrive in the morning and depart at night. We can also arrange an airport pick up with our own driver. My apartment manager speaks perfect English (as well as spanish) and is available to assist with recommendations.

About Jeffrey Marquie
I lived in Buenos Aires from 2006-2010 and loved it so much that I purchased my own condominium. It is my home away from home--where I stay anytime I visit. I'm a full time real estate broker living in Downtown St Louis, Missouri. I take pride in my residence and enjoy sharing it with others when I'm not in the country.
Jeffrey Marquie purchased this condo in 2009
Why Jeffrey Marquie chose Palermo Soho
I wanted to purchase in a new building foremost. Many of the older buildings in Buenos Aires do not have modern systems or elevators. My other criteria was that it HAD to be located in Palermo Soho, the most vibrant neighborhood in the city! This neighborhood is very safe and popular with tourists.
What makes this condo unique
The condo has a great floor plan that feels almost like a two bedroom residence. The queen bedroom has it's own door off the hallway. The living room/kitchen area also has a door from the hallway adding privacy if someone is sleeping in this area. Each guest can access the hallway (and bathroom) without disturbing the other rooms. The living room sofa converts to a full size bed with sheets---so use it as a living room by day and a second bedroom by night!
