Bright and Quirky One-Bedroom in San Telmo

look 0 comments

The Terrace is our most colorful and fantastical vacation rental. With mid-century modern furniture, vintage decor, turn-of-the-century architecture, and a light-hearted whimsy throughout, this apartment also has the most amazing private rooftop terrace. 


Located in the same building as The LoftThe Hideaway and The Oasis, The Terrace is a bright open-spaced one-bedroom apartment. The highlight is, of course, the amazing private terrace, which is the perfect spot for an evening glass of wine or breakfast in the sunshine.

The terrace is also spacious. And it’s shady during the afternoon, so you can enjoy it all day long.


The video here will walk you through the apartment so you can see the layout, the lovely afternoon light, and the quirky decor.



The decor in The Terrace was inspired by the play “The House of Bernarda Alba” by Federico Garcia Lorca. Set in Andalusia, the play is a drama telling the story of Bernard Alba and her five daughters. Clearly not just any man will do for Bernarda’s daughters. Quotes from the play, pictures from 1960s magazines of Audrey Hepburn looking ladies, textile details, and soft colors give The Terrace a feminine and dainty feel. A true fantasy.

Oh, Bernarda. You need to chill out a bit.


The wall of windows in the living room let in the softest natural light. Snuggle up on the mid-century modern sofa and watch some DVDs or weed through our collection of CDs for some new music you might never have heard of (or oldies you have forgotten).


Original Tile Floors of The Terrace

We love the century-old tile floors, and the wall of windows let in the softest natural light.


During the remodeling, we put in a skylight in above the kitchen, decorated the walls with some swirly mosaics, and restored the original tile floors of this turn-of-the-century building. We left the original brick walls because, after all, this is San Telmo.


Kitchen of The Terrace

A skylight to let in the sunshine and those amazing vaulted brick ceilings remind you that this building is over 100 years old.


The bathroom, too, is bold. There’s a half bathtub and a rain shower head. It has everything you need, even a bidet. The bathroom is downstairs on the same floor as the living room and kitchen.


The Bathroom of The Terrace

With a half tub and rain shower, the bathroom is also colorful and fun.


Upstairs is the bedroom with a view of the terrace. The stairs are a bit precarious for little ones since there isn’t a railing on the outside. And since the bedroom is upstairs, we don’t recommend staying here with small children.
