“Pretty garden apartment, central location.”
Reviewed March 6, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

I loved staying in this apartment. The quiet patio garden is a real pleasure and acts as another living room. The location is central, close to Abasto shopping, you can get anywhere by tube or a choice of buses. The owner and her English partner are very friendly and helpful. You have a shower room and well equipped kitchen with a large fridge. The studio room has a very comfortable double bed plus a sofa bed. There is plenty of room for a table and chairs. Large sliding Windows lead out onto the patio garden full of plants and flowers. The air conditioning is very efficient and quiet. There is constant wifi. The local area has a good choice of food shops, restaurants and a laundry. Best place I have stayed in Buenos Aires.

“Kind and Helpful”
Reviewed November 9, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I loved staying in this private little apartment. Initially I felt unsafe but after a few days I settled into the difference. The hosts were extremely helpful and supportive at all times. Cosy, comfortable and I wish I could return to Buenos Aires.

Fantastic experience! Really great neighborhood. One block from the subway and all the major bus lines, two blocks from the supermarket, Wi-Fi and hosts that are fun and supportive and will help you figure anything out. I loved coming 'home' and hanging out in the very private outside room. To be honest, I miss being there....

“Lovely place to retreat to after exploring the city”

This was the first place we stayed in after a non stop flight from London at the start of an eight week trip to Argentina. We were not disappointed in any way, the apartment is well equipped, comfortable, quiet, in a residential block, only rarely saw neighbours and certainly didn't hear them!,

The flat is located in the Tango district, an interesting area in its own right and is a few minutes walk to the Subte for very rapid journey to most parts of Buenos Airies, several supermarkets and plenty of smaller shops around including some excellent panaderias

The patio is lovely and we used it for breakfasting and for evening drinks and meals, beautifully planted we even had some strawberries from a plant growing in a pot

An excellent flat in every respect

“The hosts and the apartment - it all felt right”
Reviewed April 20, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

people found this review helpful

We spent several days in this apartment in two instalments – at the beginning and the end of our Argentinean tour. The second time we felt as we were coming home.
The apartment is nice and well organised despite its limited space.
A little patio is a hit. We spent most of our time there while at home.
The hosts Sylvia and Barry – most helpful and charming people – we shared some coffee and some great Malbec as well.
The location is fine – only 2 minutes from Metro station and several food markets and a relatively large Mall for consumer minded visitors.
A hot water heater of somewhat limited capacity criticised in one of the reviews is OK as long as you use it without excess.
Also from my end, as an amateur cook and an Argentinean beef lover, a larger frying pan in the kitchen would be a great improvement before we come and visit next time.
The great advantage - Barry responds to the e-mails almost immediately and wi-fi works well.

This place was perfect for our stay in Buenos Aires and contributed to the fantastic week we had there. The owners Syl and Barrie are great hosts and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They invited us for a drink on our first night which was great as we got to quiz them about the city. Syl who is Argentine has great knowledge of the city and gave us some fantastic recommendations! They were happy for us to contact them if we had any questions throughout the week and went above an beyond to help us out. Syl has even sent us details of accommodation at our next stop in Salta! The apartment is lovely, small but has everything you need. It has a great outside space that gets the sun. It is extremley clean and part way through the week we got clean linen. The nearest subway is just round the corner and there are buses to the main attractions from the next street. We cannot fault this apartment, it is great value for money.
