Bohemian, soulful and loved, we say The Loft is our romantic vacation rental because it seems to attract all the honeymooners. It’s an intimate space, the soft light and vibrant colors, and the cozy upstairs bedroom, remind you that you’re on vacation.
The Loft is on the second floor of a turn-of-the-century building on Paseo Colon, a busy street with several important bus lines making it easy to get around to other parts of the city. Our guests love the bird cage elevator and funky layout of what is called a chorizo-style building.
Most suitable for a couple, three can comfortably sleep here with the third person occupying the futon in the living room. And since there are two bathrooms, there’s a bit more privacy if there are three of you.

Methods of Payment
Cash – We prefer that you pay in cash (US dollars) at the moment of check-in. There are no transaction fees or banking fees when you pay in cash, so this is the cheapest route.
Wire Transfer – You can pay by wire transfer to a US or European bank account. In this case, there is a $10 US banking fee to be paid by the renter in addition to the full rent. This should be paid before your arrival to ensure that it has reached our bank account by the time you are checking in.
Credit Cards – Credit cards can be used through PayPal. There is an additional 5% transaction fee charged by PayPal that will be added on to the rental amount. If you’d like to use your credit card or pay through PayPal, you will need to let us know in advance so that we can send the request (rent + 5%) to you before you leave home. You’ll have to pay this before leaving home because PayPal blocks access when you try to use your account while overseas.
We ask for a $100 USD deposit for short-term bookings. Please see our Rental Terms and Conditions for further details.
A very strategic location, The Loft is located on Paseo Colon which makes grabbing a cab or choosing a bus (there are tons with stops just below us) easy as can be. Walk two blocks up to Plaza Dorrego, the main square in San Telmo, or two blocks down to Puerto Madero.
“Wow, what an amazing stay with Angela. I would highly recommend staying with her in any of her properties. They are funky, fun and well located. I not only got a great place to live but first hand recommendations from a local as well. Angela is the best host that I have had the pleasure of staying with in one year around-the-world travels. She made me feel like an old friend dropping by for a visit rather than a guest she was meeting for the first time. I stayed with Angela 6 weeks before moving to more permanent accommodation in BsAs (which she helping me find!). Angela is fabulous, generous person so much so that I now count her amongst my good friends in Buenos Aires after being here a mere 6 weeks. She is extremely helpful, cheerful, laid back and just plain fun to hang out with.”

“We had a wonderful stay at Angela’s spacious and welcoming loft. The layout and design is superbly quirky. The location is fantastic: San Telmo quickly became our favorite neighborhood in Buenos Aires. And besides being a first class host, Angela also provides a guide to the neighborhood and city with local insights that outclass anything in our guide books. We would’ve been happy to stay another week or more – highly recommended!”

“What a great place – and an even better host! The apartment is ideally located and yet always quiet, with a well-stocked kitchen and everything else one might need, including also a pre-charged mobile phone (!) and a SUBE (Metro-)Card. Angela even put together a little handbook of San Telmo, B. A., and daytrips around the city that puts Lonely Planet and other guide books to shame.
We had a great time staying at the Loft and will definitely come back if we ever make it back to Argentina!”
