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, televisions in both bedrooms 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 Buenos Aires

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.

Beautiful, immaculate 2 bedroom apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this apartment. Robert, our host, is amazing! When we arrived New Year's Eve at the apartment at about 5:45PM, we were thinking that we better get out immediately to buy some staples to do us through to Jan 2nd in case of store closures on New Year's Day. As we were bringing our bags to the front door, Robert arrived with 3 bags of groceries for us! Needless to say we were very grateful and impressed.

The apartment itself is perfect. Beautifully decorated with two spacious bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a kitchen that has proved to be very workable.

The weekly maid service is much appreciated

Robert is always available to answer any questions and recommend local restaurants. When we wanted to get our hair cut, Robert recommend an excellent spot.

The building is quiet with friendly neighbours.

The neighbourhood is perfect. Lots of grocery stores, restaurants and shops are close by including an upscale shopping mall and a cinema multiplex.

Next time we are back in this beautiful city, we will want to stay in this apartment. Many thanks Robert!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this gorgeous, modern 2-bedroom apartment for 2 weeks during July 2016 as a respite during a 3-month South American trip. The apartment exceeded even our best expectations. It was fully stocked from top to bottom (kitchen, bathroom, etc) , extremely comfortable (bed & sofa included), plenty of heat and hot water (it was winter in July, so coolish at night), laundry machine in the unit, and perfectly located to all that Buenos Aires has to offer (especially the neighboring restaurants, which were WONDERFUL, public transportation and walkable to most major sights in the city). The WiFi was fast and modern, the cable tv offered more stations than we could imagine (and plenty of stations in English- not that we were around much to watch tv, but there were times when we enjoyed chilling out after a day of sightseeing) and travel guidebooks were helpful as we planned the remainder of our trip. The owner was responsive and offered tips to enhance the enjoyment of our stay. His local manager, Carmen, was prompt and very helpful (including bringing us a welcome bottle of wine and basket of fruit!). I honestly can't think of ANYTHING that I would change, except perhaps yearn to remain in Buenos Aires and this beautiful apartment for much longer!!! THANK YOU for a wonderful 2 weeks! We will definitely rent this apartment again should we be fortunate enough to find ourselves in BA again. Fingers crossed!!!!

Excellent apartment and wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

Robert truly has made this apartment a “home away from home”. While the perfect location, noise-reducing street-side windows, and ample hot water make this apartment a great choice for shorter stays, I think that the details that Robert has added really shine with a week (or longer) stay. The kitchen is fully appointed- and unlike many VRBOs that we have rented, it is stocked with a complete cookware set and all the little extras that you might need (many different cooking utensils, scissors, placements, etc). Also unlike many VRBOs, Robert provided key essentials like dishwashing soap, sponges, and dish racks. From an alarm clock in the master bedroom to a roll of tape in the desk, everything that you might need is here. A few suggestions for your stay: set an alarm if you use the wooden cortinas to block noise and light at night- as they work very well, and do not miss the shower experience in the second bathroom! The location is ideal for the city- you are very close to the subte and are surrounded by restaurants, bakeries, green grocers, carnicerias, etc. Both Robert and the apartment manager, Carmen are super responsive and are both are really kind people. We are staying for 3 months and feel very lucky to have been able to rent this excellent apartment. Highly recommended!

Lovely apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed in this well appointed, comfortable apartment in Palermo which is very close to subway stations, supermarkets, restaurants and cafes. It proved to be a great base for our trip. The apartment is difficult to fault. The beds were extermely comfortable, the TV excellent, the kitchen functional and a good size, plenty of hot water for showers, a washing machine, two bathrooms and a lift up to the third floor. The owner was also very pleasant and responsive to deal with, so we would highly recommend staying there.

Was really our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The owner was fantastic, had a car waiting for us at the airport to take us "home" to a bottle of Malbec, fresh fruit, and a fabulous condo. Our owner had all details covered so that we could move right in with no worries. The apt was very clean with all comforts, including a large walk in shower. Location was fabulous. Our landlord was the best!

Great central location in Buenos Aires

  • 5 of 5

My wife, father-in-law and I all visited Buenos Aires for a week in November. Robert, the owner, met us and was wonderful. He provided us with maps, information, tips on how to enjoy our stay in Buenos Aires. His area knowledge was critical for us since this was my first trip to Buenos Aires. He was literally available to us 24/7. The apt was great as advertised 2 bed/2 bath. Very clean and very near cafes and grocery and bars and restaurants. Even though the apt is in the middle of town there was minimal noise and we slept well. Robert provided great tips for tour guides and places to visit as well as how to navigate the Argentine currency. We had a great stay and would recommend this apt to anyone visiting Buenos Aires.
