Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Palermo - 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. 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 Buenos Aires

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!

Comfortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for just over two months. The apartment is in a great neighborhood of Palermo Soho. Lots of shops, restaurants, parks, clubs, music, etc. We walked nearly everywhere from here and only took cabs to the airports and ferry terminal. Cabs are plentiful and easy to get right outside your door. The apartment is comfortable. The pull-out couch worked well for our adult son's visit. Not a fan of the bed that sits so low to the ground, but I guess that's very common in Argentina. It was comfortable but a bit soft for our tastes. The small kitchen was fine. We mainly stored snacks and drinks in the refrigerator. We ate out nearly all the time. Whatever we needed in the kitchen was there, ie corkscrew, paper towels, silverware, dishes, etc. We just had to replenish some supplies since we stayed there so long.

The shower was fine..plenty strong and lots of hot water after a short wait. Bathroom was adequate; towels were high quality as were the bed linens. We appreciated that! Balcony furniture was a bit uncomfortable, but nice to have a place to sit. The owner has ordered the sliding door to be replaced; we couldn't lock it. We worked the entire time we stayed in Argentina and really appreciated all the effort the owner and manager went through to get the highest speed internet available in Buenos Aires. Worked consistently great.

The biggest issue we had with the apartment was outside the control of the owner: the street noise. We live in a downtown area at home but never appreciated the concept of noise pollution until we traveled to South America. The noise is fairly constant except from 6-9 am. It's really important to either bring a sound machine with you or to have an app on your phone to block out the noise from the bars, the squeaky buses, loud motorcycles, etc. It's part of being in a big South American city, but this area appears especially noisy at night with all the bars and restaurants.

While the apartment isn't what we would consider luxurious, it worked out well for us. We traveled around Argentina and appreciated having our stuff kept safely in the apartment. I definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a nice neighborhood and a safe, comfortable place to stay. The managers were great with this suggestions and help. They checked in on us to make sure all was ok. We appreciated that. Also nice to have weekly cleaning.

Home away from home in the perfect neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The property: was perfect for what we wanted. It was a great apartment with a balcony that we enjoyed breakfast on every morning to watch traffic and people. The decorations, lighting, gas stove, bed, and bathroom were all like staying in an upscale hotel that we got to live in for a week. It was so nice to have a kitchen to cook in and a space we didn't have to share with anyone else. We were so comfortable, it felt as if we were home and lived in the neighborhood. It's also a really nice place to relax when you've had a long day on your feet or when you're trying to plan activities for the next day (thanks to complimentary wifi). We didn't once turn on the television, but it's nice to have the option if we wanted to.

The location: is perfect! It's only 7/8 blocks to the subte, which will get you practically anywhere a tourist would want to go. BUT don't forget to take a walk to the plazas, restaurants, and cafes within 3/4 blocks of this great apartment! There are two markets on the weekend nearby, lots of restaurant choices, a supermarket less than a block away, and plenty of nightlife around if you wanted to stay only in Palermo Soho for the week.

The service: Jeff and Guille were both phenomenal from the start. They were communicative and responded in a timely manner. Guille had THE BEST recommendations for food and entertainment. A lot of the time, we said to ourselves, "well, if Guille recommended it, we have to try it." Although we didn't have to call on her, we trusted that if we needed ANYTHING, she would do what she could to help.

Thank you Jeff and Guille for making our stay in Buenos Aires one that we will compare all others to! :)

Well located!

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice place in a super location in Palermo Soho area of Buenos Aires. It is located within close walking distance of "all the action" and great places to eat and drink. The owner, who lives in St. Louis, was very easy to call or email and ask questions. His manager, Guille, is super! She was very helpful throughout our entire stay. She also responds well through emails or phone calls. Staying in this area is a good idea for young and old. The apartment is very secure as is the apartment building. One can stay for a few days or weeks and enjoy the amenities of being at home. This is not like staying in a downtown Hilton Hotel but it is a better than average, safe apartment. Taxis, buses, or the subway are all available. No need for a car.

perfect location for exploring Buenos Aires

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two young daughters used this apartment for a week in July and it was just perfect for our needs. Jeffrey responded to my emails quickly and put me in contact with Guille, the who helped manage our needs with the apartment while we were there. Guille helped set up a taxi to pick us up from the airport - it was nice after traveling for a long period of time not to have to worry about how to get the apartment. Aldo picked us up in a minivan, which was perfect for our family needs. We met Guille on our way to the apartment to get the keys. She came over later that afternoon to answer any questions (i.e. where to do laundry, where was the closest grocery store, taxi recommendations, etc). It was really nice to have someone local help us in that manner as this was our first trip to Buenos Aires. The apartment is in a really fabulous neighborhood - tons of great places to eat, a really nice coffee shop across the street. We walked the 8+ blocks on a daily basis to get on the subway. The apartment was adequately equipped. We brought travel beds for our young daughters and they fit perfectly in the bedroom (that we all slept in). The apartment is on a busy road, but we used a white noise at night that blocked it out and the noise never bothered us. For the price,location, and wonderful help from a local you can't beat this rental!

Super bien

  • 5 of 5

Gracias Guille por todo. Estuvimos en el apto una semana con mi hijo de 8 años y mi hija. Realmente tenia todo lo que necesitábamos . La cama y el sillón super comodos. El barrio es precioso y hay buena locomoción a pocas cuadras. Supermercados cerca y toda una gama de propuestas gastronómicas en la vuelta. Lo super recomiendo. 10 puntos.
