Sunny one-bedroom apartment on the top (9th) floor with private terrace. Well-equipped kitchen, dining area, desk area, super-comfy bed. Safe, lively neighborhood close to a great park, public transit, shopping, amazing restaurants, and more.
This sunny one-bedroom apartment has a living/dining area with a comfy sofa, a bookcase (with some interesting reads), and a dining table for four people. There’s also a desk area, one bedroom with a queen-size bed (with a fabulous foam mattress) and blackout curtains, one full bathroom, and a full kitchen. The huge private terrace has a table for six people and is great for entertaining (the view for New Year’s fireworks is awesome!).
The apartment is equipped with Wi-Fi, air-conditioning and a gas heater in the living room, ceiling fans in the living room and bedroom, and linens and towels. The full kitchen has a fridge with freezer, gas stove/oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, dishes for four people, and cookware.
The queen-size bed sleeps two comfortably. One additional person can sleep on the couch (it doesn't pull out, but is long and comfortable!) or the double air mattress.
Zugang für Gäste
You have full access to the apartment. Wi-Fi is included, we have some cool books on the bookshelf, and there is a well-equipped kitchen at your disposal. There is a drying rack for clothes, an iron and small ironing board, a hairdryer, and a small electric fan/heater in addition to ceiling fans in the bedroom and living room (also air-conditioning in the living room). There is a cordless phone (landline) with service for making local calls, and we have a basic prepaid cell phone available for guests to use while they're in town.
We find that many people plan to be out exploring the city (or watching Netflix!) and don't care about watching TV, so we have a pay-as-you-go plan with DirecTV that is only available (for an additional fee) if you request for it to be activated. If you would like DirecTV access, please mention it when you contact me to book your stay, and I'll confirm the current fee. Note that DirecTV includes some English-language shows/movies with subtitles, but much of it is dubbed or original Spanish-language programming.

We are travelers/nomads and this is our home base when we're in Buenos Aires, so we're usually not around when guests are here, but you'll be well taken care of by our property manager.
EARLY/LATE CHECK-IN/OUT FEE: We usually have some flexibility on check-in/check-out times, but there is an additional fee of $30 per early/late check-in/out (before 8:30 am or after 8:30 pm).

We work online so understand the importance of good Wi-Fi! The advertised Wi-Fi speed for our service is 10 MB. Downloading is usually pretty fast but uploads can take a while. We regularly stream videos and do audio calls via VOIP with no problems whatsoever. There are also lots of cafés with Wi-Fi in the area.
Buenos Aires does experience occasional power outages, especially during super-hot weather (the height of summer here is December-January). Power outages usually don't last very long, but it's something to be aware of! We'll do our best to keep you comfortable. In terms of staying connected, we do have a landline in the apartment, which you can use to make international calls with a calling card, and you can also get data on a local SIM card.
Our apartment is close to a major intersection, and although it doesn't face directly onto the street, you'll definitely hear some street noise, especially at rush hour. (City living at its best!) It quiets down significantly on the weekends and overnight, though, and I've never had trouble getting a good night's sleep here.
We simply ask guests to treat our home as if it were their own.
We're not pet owners or smokers, so please, no pets or smoking in the apartment.
Depending on our property manager's schedule, we can sometimes accommodate check-in times earlier than the time noted in this listing's description (and will arrange that with you in advance). However, please do not arrive before the agreed-upon check-in time, or ask people entering/leaving the building to let you in. Some of our neighbors in the building have complained about our Airbnb guests waiting for an extended period of time in the building/hallway (because they arrived way before the agreed-upon time). If you arrive in the neighborhood earlier than the agreed-upon time, please wait in a nearby cafe, not in the building.
Our property manager will meet you at the apartment at the agreed-upon time, show you everything you need to know, and ask you to sign a simple contract.
I'm from the U.S., but Buenos Aires, Argentina, has been my home base since 2007. My husband, Roberto, and I are location independent and we rent out our place in Buenos Aires while we travel the world. I'm a book editor and a lifestyle coach, he's a graphic designer and offers technical support for online businesses. We love food, travel, art and architecture, music and movies, and learning new things.
