Quiet, spacious, and super comfortable, this ground floor apartment is in a converted conventillo. We renovated the kitchen & bathroom for modern standards, restored the original pine floors, exposed some brick, and added design touches to create an eclectic mix of urban & vintage.
The Depto sleeps four. It's perfect for a couple or small family or even two couples. It's on the ground floor of a famous building called Casa Colectiva Bernardino Rivadavia (and even has its own Wikipedia page).
To update this 100-year-old apartment, we knocked down a wall to open the kitchen up to the living room. Just beyond the kitchen is the patio/breakfast room surrounded by windows. Open them all up and feel like you're having breakfast al fresco.
The polished cement floors in the spacious bathroom feel great on bare feet. There is no bathtub, only a shower with amazing water pressure.
And no need to worry about getting enough sleep after enjoying the famously late nightlife of Buenos Aires. Just close the window shutters in the bedroom to keep out the light and you could easily sleep well past noon.
The best thing about the Depto though is its location. San Telmo is the most authentic neighborhood in Buenos Aires. It's got a bohemian artsy vibe to it. Defensa, the main street, is packed with antique shops, cool boutiques, rustic eateries, and street vendors and performers galore every Sunday. You won't realize it though until you are out on the street, because the apartment is in the third block and set back very far from the hustle and bustle.
The apartment comes with WiFi, speakers for connecting a device, a TV (no cable) and DVD player (with a selection of cool movies), an AC, two gas heaters, a fully equipped kitchen, a microwave, a hairdryer, guidebooks, maps, books, adaptors for electrical devices, linens, towels, and friendly hosts!

I've begun splitting my time between New Orleans and Buenos Aires, so if I'm not there in BA when you stay with us, my friends Grisel and Andrew will be there to take care of you.
I taught writing in universities around the world for most of my life (Italy, Panama, France, Miami, Egypt). Now I run my own vacation rental business.
My husband John is a filmmaker. He makes family films. The actors are often our three cats: Felipe, Cortado and Bonzie.
John and I both love cooking, music, and, of course, travel. In 2015 we took a five-week trip in South America, so if you have any questions about traveling you think I can help with, let me know. I'm happy to help.
We've been renting out our spaces since 2008; we've made friends all over the world and learned so much. A bunch of them even came to our wedding in April 2015. Talk about an inspiring group of guests.
