At Home in Recoleta

  • 5 of 5

Tomorrow we will conclude our stay in this beautiful apartment. It is hard to find words to express how attached we feel to this city, this neighborhood, and to our host, Matthew. In the month we have been here, this friendly neighborhood has felt like home. Our stay began with a leisurely stroll through the surrounding streets with Matthew; he pointed out cafes, bakeries, restaurants and cleaners which have now become our favorites. Our initial visit with him concluded with lemonade and medialunas to refresh our travel-weary spirits. Since that time, he has attended to our every need -- from arranging rides to and from the airport for our arrival and the arrivals of family members, recommendations for sightseeing and dining, and, most importantly, the feeling that we had a friend in a city that was new to us. The apartment was wonderfully located; we walked to many areas of the city from here, and mass transportation is located just a few blocks away. This old building is beautiful, and served the needs of four adult travelers very well. It is located on a quiet corner in an architecturally stunning neighborhood. However, the most important part of any experience is the people; Matthew, with his kind and generous heart, was the perfect introduction to the life and culture of Buenos Aires. We are forever grateful for the time we were able to spend with him, for the amenities of this apartment, and for living the magical life of Buenos Aires for this month.

Excellent Location and Value in Recoleta!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at this apartment on a Saturday and Nico was there to meet us and our 3 large suitcases! Thankfully the building has a small but delightful old elevator that helped us up to the fourth floor apt. The two bedrooms were great, as well at the fully stocked kitchen! We frequented the large grocery store about 2 blocks away almost every other night, as we had gotten a little tired of being out all day and then eating until midnight every night! As was mentioned in previous reviews the wifi was hit and miss for most our stay there. The cafe below the apartment was great for a cafe con leche and pastries! The apartment was in a great location, with several great restaurants within walking distance, as well as supermarkets and stores. Matt was very responsive via email and easy to work with and Nico was great handling the check in and check out as Matt was back in America for a month or so. I would say in conclusion that this property was a great value and a great location and I would highly recommend it!

Unique Property and Owner

  • 5 of 5

Matthew was the consummate host during our time in Buenos Aires. As he lived in the States for 15 years, his English is excellent, plus he has the benefit of knowing Buenos Aires thoroughly. Matthew responded readily (and quickly) with whatever we needed.

The apartments are comfortable, charming, and well-located, good for families who might need two units close together. Or just one apartment.

We heartily recommend you stay here!

Perfect for Family

  • 5 of 5

This property was close to everything my family and I required during our long stay here, two grocery stores down the street, Hospital Aleman a ten minute walk, and a lovely park at the end of the road. The neighbors in the building were very nice. The apartment has great security. It should be noted that there are two apartment units in the same building to choose from, as one can see in the photos. As for Matthew, he was honest and reliable, personally offering his help whenever we needed.

Amazing Location, Most Helpful Owner

  • 5 of 5

I arrived in Matthew's apartment expecting a nice place to stay for my month-long trip to visit my family, but I was happily surprised with so much more. Not only was the apartment open with cathedral ceilings, the windows opened to the fresh, summer air everyday, letting in the friendly neighborhood of Recoleta. Believe what you've heard--the neighborhood is lovely, the people very friendly. Matthew assisted my family and I in many ways without asking or wanting anything in return, including translating for us when we needed, providing fresh linen, and taking us out for coffee at one of the many cafe's. Very pleased.

Disappointing

  • 2 of 5

Lovely building however, the property is not as clean and beautiful as the pictures shown. Some pictures on the site do not appear to be taken in the unit I rented. Also, in need of a real professional cleaning especially the bathroom, kitchen, and all floors. The furniture is lacking, pieces broken, dirty, with only the small sofa to sit and no sitting chairs. The shower water drains in a pipe under floor and then overflows into a drain vent in the center of the bathroom, spilling onto the floor later. Must be very careful especially at night that one does not slip. Give one star for the building's architecture and another for the location. Could be a beauty, sadly disappointing.

Owner's Response: I apologize if you did not have a good time. We sent you the maid and the plumber, but you were never there and then you left unexpectedly so the plumber did not get to fix the leak before you left. I also gave you a refund. Your rating is very hard. I was super nice to you and responsive to all of your needs. I am the best at what I do and love being there for my clients. Your comments are very hard and exaggerated. The apartment is gorgeous and it is in great shape. I have had 4 people staying after you did and nobody has brought up anything of that kind. The leak has been fixed obviously. Thanks.

Hello,

My name is Matthew and I would like to welcome you to our apartments.

First of all, let me describe the apartments. These are truly singular properties, located on a residential street, yet just one block from Avenida Pueyrredon with its shops and businesses. Just a few short blocks to the Recoleta Village or Plaza Barrientos areas with their restaurants, shopping, nightlife, and other attractions. The area is safe and has all of the modern conveniences.

Second, because I am a native of Buenos Aires ('porteno' in Argentine) I always take a personal interest in providing our guests with all of the information they need to enjoy the city to its fullest. Buenos Aires is one of the most cosmopolitian, sophisticated and fun cities in the world. It is nearly as large in terms of population as New York and has all of the amenities and excitement that one expects in a big city. Because of its European heritage Buenos Aires is often compared to Paris or Barcelona. I know that once you stay in Buenos Aires you will find it as exciting as I do. I would be delighted to provide you with additional information via phone or email noted on this webpage. So, please feel free to contact me for addtional information.
