Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Great location in central Palermo! This gorgeous apartment in a mid-century classic French building has many updates and decorative touches that will make your visit to Buenos Aires enjoyable and comfortable. The Botanical Gardens, Las Heras Park, Alto Palermo, Palermo Soho, Palermo Hollywood and Recoleta are all within walking distance.

The apartment is just one block to the subway and buses and taxis are at your doorstep. New double glazed windows bring in the sun while ensuring that you have a calm oasis to return home to. The two modern bathrooms—both remodeled in the last ten years--sport a bathtub with rain head shower in one and a large shower stall with double shower heads in the other. The modern kitchen features a full size fridge, a gas stove with electric convection oven, microwave and all the necessary cookware, dishes and glassware to make you feel comfortable. This apartment features Wifi, 42" HD televisions in and a mini component radio/CD player. You’ll think you’ve never left home.

You’ll feel very much the “porteno” as you step out of this beautiful building onto the broad boulevard of an upper middle-class Buenos Aires neighborhood.'

About Robert Osika

I have travelled extensively and fell in love with Buenos Aires. The city is vibrant and exciting with lots to see and do and great restaurants. I always tell everyone I was attracted to this city for the 'portenos' - Argentines are very friendly and accomodating.

Robert Osika purchased this condo in 2006

Why Robert Osika chose Recoleta

I loved the location of this apartment. You feel like you are living amongst the Argentines. The neighborhood is vibrant and lively and filled with sidewalk bars, cafes, "restos" and the streets are lined with bakeries, green grocers, deli's, flower vendors, pasta shops....everything at your doorstep!

What makes this condo unique

I totally renovated this property after I bought it and tried to refurbish it to North American Standards. The kitchen is equipped with a full size fridge/freezer, a gas stove with and electric convection oven, microwave and all the utensils, dishes, appliances and pots to make you stay comfortable. The windows facing the street have been replaced with double glazed windows to reduce noise to a minimum, making this apartment a quiet oasis.

Unforgettable stay in Buenos Aires

  • 5 of 5

Besides all the great tourist attractions to see in this Paris of South America, our travel experience was made unforgettable for two reasons: the appartment in Palermo and it's owner, Mr Robert Osika.

First the appartment. It was clean, well furnished, well equipped kitchen, large bathrooms and family room and above all in a clean and safe part of the city. Many nice cafés with outside terrace, good restaurants, a variety of corner stores and food markets, it was near a subway station on a main boulevard and a walking distance of many attractions.

Second the owner. Not only Mr., Osika rented us that great appartment, he greeted us with fresh cut flowers on the dining table, two bottles of red and white wine, and a six pack of beer in the fridge. He gave us a set of city maps, a subway & bus card to start with as well as precious advices of what to do in the city, including a tip on how to have free city tours. He was there to advice us on a trip to Iguazu falls as well as to Uruguay. Without his help we would have lost time and efforts to see half of we have seen.

An unforgettable trip!

Charming property, charming owner

  • 5 of 5

This condo was delightful with an efficient stainless steel kitchen, plenty of sunlight, a large common area and two spacious bedrooms. The one room has french doors that open onto a small balcony where you can enjoy all the smells and sounds of the beautiful city. There were three of us and we all had plenty of space and privacy.

Although the condo was very nice, Robert, the owner really makes this property special. Robert greeted us when we arrived with fresh flowers, fresh fruit, and pastries. He lent us Sube cards for transportation, gave us maps, and answered all our questions. He even helped me communicate with a pharmacist later in the week.

The location of the condo is ideal. We were a couple of blocks from the Subte, several bus lines, and a vibrant shopping area. Many of the sites we were interested in were within a mile or so and we walked to many places such as Recoleta Cemetery and Museo Evita. I highly recommend this property for a stay in Buenos Aires.

Buenos Aires is all about its people

  • 5 of 5

From the quick response to our original inquiry to ensuring that our driver was available on the day we left after a month's stay, the owner Roberto not only guaranteed that our every need was met, but even anticipated some we did not know we had.

If you are "Spanish Challenged" like us, then just knowing that Roberto is available if needed, will make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. His French style apartment in the traditional neighborhood is conveniently located, cozy and secure for young and old alike. Enjoy!

Great unit in an excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this apartment in a beautiful, stylish and safe building. This unit was perfect for us (2 adults and 1 child) during our wonderful stay in BA. It was clean, spacious and in an excellent location - 2 blocks from the subway (Subte), grocery store around the corner, ATM across the street and plenty of restaurants and shopping. Robert was great in getting us logistical information ahead of time including airport pickup recommendations. Carmen, our on site host, got us oriented and was just a phone call away.

Coronel Diaz revisited

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay in this stylish Palermo apartment was in 2015. We had wonderful memories, so decided to return again this past Mar, 2017, while visiting family with our 2 teenage sons. The spacious layout, 2 separate bedrooms and well equipped kitchen work perfectly for our family. Extremely comfortable beds and excellent AC (in all rooms) ensure a restful nights sleep-and the new washing machine is a convenient addition. As with our first visit, we enjoyed the lively ambience of the neighbourhood and it's many restaurants, shops and cafes. We were also very grateful to the landlords Robert and Norm for being so accommodating with our schedule, and for their dining recommendations, tips

and helpfulness. This apartment would be a perfect choice for any single person, couple or family wishing to experience this vibrant and beautiful city.

Stay in the house of a friend.

  • 5 of 5

Our first idea was that we were in the house of a friend, not a rented apt., Robert was there

to show it to us and to answer any doubt that we could have.

The furniture and apt. are well looked after, like if someone was living there and not just for renting.

Our stay was short but we enjoyed it.

We feel that we have a new friend.

Of course we recommend it for a pleasent stay en B.A.
