PRIVATE GARDEN, HEART OF RECOLETA, SPACIOUS & PEACEFUL YET CLOSE TO EVERYTHING!

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Recoleta - Callao1442

Indoor Space: 110 m2 (1184 ft2)

Outdoor Space: 40 m2 (430 ft2)

Max.Capacity:

This charming one-bedroom apartment in the heart of Recoleta is an excellent choice for your stay in Buenos Aires. Located on one of the city's most elegant avenues, the apartment faces the back of the building and is thus, extremely quiet.

The truly special element is a private garden patio adjacent to the living room, where high walls and ambient lighting create an excellent space for dining, cocktails or answering emails. When you do head out, you'll find that the location is incredibly central. As an Argentine friend said to me, 'If you were going to put a pin on the most desired location in Buenos Aires, it would be on this apartment.' Countless shops and restaurants are right outside your door. The famed Recoleta Cemetery as well as the city's finest hotels are a few minutes walk away.

The space is both comfortable and modern. It features marble-accented bathrooms, a fully outfitted, granite finished kitchen and a large sofa area that is perfect for relaxing. The bedroom is an ensuite with a king bed and also has a small external patio. The living and dining area is spacious and huge (especially by Argentine standards!)

Recoleta is adjacent to several neighborhoods including Palermo and Plaza San Martin, both of which are a short taxi ride away.

About Virginia Lato

I design leather and fur clothing and handbags in Buenos Aires. Because of that, I am there a lot and wanted a home base for myself when I am in Buenos Aires. You will feel at home here. From the wedgwood china to the extra comfortable bed, this apartment is definitely outfitted to be the most enjoyable experience for both you and me!

Virginia Lato purchased this condo in 2005

Why Virginia Lato chose Recoleta

As one of my Argentine associates said to me, if you were putting a pin on a map of Buenos Aires, targeting the very best location, it would be my apartment. It is quiet, yet close to absolutely everything. You will walk the city from this location. The neighbourhood is thriving and alive with more restaurants and shops than you can possibly want, but safe and secure.

What makes this condo unique

People are astounded when they see the garden that is part of this apartment. Two complete walls are windows to the garden, making the whole apartment airy and open. I normally leave the doors wide open, allowing the breezes to flow through the apartment. Since we are at the back of the apartment, the most common noise is that of the birds singing.

To make it complete, the location simply cannot be beat! Restaurants and shops abound right outside the door. If you don't want to walk, taxis are easy and plentiful, while the subway is just down the street.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Virginia

 

Alas, we've come to the end of our stay in your airy garden apartment in fabulous Buenos Aires. We've had a marvellous time; we've walked and walked and walked (at times in places we shouldn't have; we had three locals tell us to head back to Caminito in La Boca when we strayed too far in our search of colourful houses) and it's been great to be able to come back to the apartment and rest in the middle of the day before heading out for another feast of the senses.

 

We have wandered through the amazing Parque Natural Y Reserva Ecologica Costanera Sur, enjoyed the ghoulish delights of La Recoleta Cementerio - with its avenues and streets, truly a walled city of the dead - and of course we had to go to Casa Rosa to see Evita's balcony. Other experiences that gave us a real feel for the spirit of the place were the San Telmo Fair and Sensaciones de Tango at Gran Cafe Tortoni. We were also lucky enough to experience a Buenos Aires Ciudad Celebration with choirs, an opera singer, traditional dancers from various regions in the most colourful and unusual costumes accompanied by equally colourful musicians and, the finale, flamenco dancers!

 

You were so right when you said we would love Buenos Aires and that Victoriano would look after us; he did, and was always incredibly friendly and helpful. But there is still so much to see; we'll just have to come back one day.

 

We fly out later today and hope to be able to leave our things in the apartment until about 1.45 pm if that's OK with you.

 

Thank you so much for sharing your apartment, your insights and beautiful Buenos Aires.

 

Cheers

Elegant, tranquil apartment in a lively city

  • 5 out of 5
I am regularly in Buenos Aires for a month or more every (austral) winter; this apartment has become my preferred place to stay. By Bs As standards it is large, light and airy; it looks out to its own enchanting walled garden at the back; it is furnished in a spare, elegant style. All the systems work well, and the apartment is maintained to a very high standard of cleanliness by a cleaner who comes twice a week. It is located in the fashionable Recoleta area of the city; food stores -- both supermarkets and smaller speciality stores -- are only a block away. The street is a busy one (with an endless supply of taxis!), but the apartment is at the back of the building and so insulated from the street noise. It is a comfortable and tranquil island in a lively, exciting city. I love the place.

Everyone agrees with you and marvels as to how peaceful and quiet the apartment is while on a main street. We feel ever so fortunate to be able to enjoy this apartment in this location as well.
You are always a pleasure to have and we look forward to welcoming you again in 2015!

A gem in the heart of Buenos Aires

  • 5 out of 5
What a wonderful home base for our stay in Buenos Aires. We fell in love with the private patio and booked our stay. The apartment was perfect. It is centrally located in Recoleta. We were able to walk everywhere which really allowed us to immerse ourselves in the city culture. Virginia is great! She emailed us a vast amount of information prior to our trip that really helped us plan. The bedroom is very comfortable and the master bath is just the right size with a easy walk In shower. The powder room is nicely appointed. The kitchen was perfect for us as we wanted to be able to have breakfast in and then get on with our days. The dining room and living room are very roomy. We absolutely fell in love with the sofa. It is so comfy that I'm going to build one for our house. Virginia's concierge Augusto is more than helpful. We really appreciated all that he did. A cleaning lady came twice during the week. Don't miss this wonderful home away. There is no question in our mind that when we go back to Buenos Aires we will stay there.

Owner's Response: Thanks Scott! It was a pleasure getting to know you through our email conversations about Buenos Aires. It was especially great to get to meet both you and Mary in person on our "cross over".
I love the way you embraced the city and how it clearly embraced you both!
Warm regards, Virginia

An excellent base for a stay in Buenos Aires

  • 5 out of 5
I rented this apartment for a month during the (Argentine) winter, 2013. The apartment is unusually spacious, and is very elegantly furnished, in a somewhat minimalist style. The patio or enclosed garden is a huge advantage, wonderful to look out on even if the weather is too cool to sit there for very long; the windows and glass doors that give onto the garden mean that the living space inside is unusually bright and pleasant. Recoleta is a well-heeled area of the city, so the urban environs are agreeable. It's a ten or fifteen minute walk to the famous Recoleta Cemetery, and to the Museum of Fine Arts. Food shopping is easy and good.

The description and the photos on the VRBO website are accurate in every way. Very thorough and attentive twice-weekly cleaning is provided. A friendly and helpful local property manager is readily available for any small matters that come up.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the property to a friend or relative; my only hesitation might be that I would want to be there myself.

Recoleta patio apartment

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment lived up to the description to perfection. A delightful, fabulously located place to stay. Comfortably accommodates 3 people and has all the equipment and facilities to make a real home from home experience. The patio is a sheer delight.Great assistance from the apt manager and everyone involved in the letting could not have been more helpful.

A Very Nice Apartment

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I stayed here for a week.

It's a nice one-bedroom place with a well-equipped kitchen and a garden/patio in the back. Even though it's on a major street, it's very quiet. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is roomy, and the place is within easy walking distance of food shopping and some good restaurants.

The owner couldn't be nicer and more accommodating.

I highly recommended this apartment.

A Terrific Place

  • 5 out of 5
This is a wonderful one-bedroom apartment with a garden/patio off the living room. It has a main bathroom with a nice shower, a well-equipped kitchen, and a very comfortable bed. There's a washing machine, a TV (which we never used), and a small safe.

It's in a great location, close to a number of good restaurants and a supermarket. Cabs are a snap to hail on the street on which the apartment sits. You can also walk to a lot of the city's attractions from here.

Virginia, the owner, couldn't be nicer. You really can't go wrong with this place.

Notes:
It will be your fully equipped home away from home. Luxury sheets and towels, silk duvet and pillows, wedgewood china and plenty of kitchen accessories make your stay easy and comfortable. We will supply complimentary maid service twice weekly as well as an english/spanish speaking concierge who will help you get oriented and then take care of any possible problems while you are there. The apartment is spacious, relaxed, luxurious and clean. It is totally renovated with porcelain tile floors, granite kitchen counters and marble bathrooms. The apartment is at the back of the building, making it extremely quiet. All you hear are the birds even though you are in the center of the city! The most unique, the rarest part of this apartment is the huge patio. It is unheard of in Recoleta to have a huge, walled, private garden, but we have it! It is true 'inside-outside' living as the apartment seamlessly moves from inside to out.
