We have handpicked each apartment in our collection of vacation rentals for its style, location, and historic surroundings. Because they are so unique, we tend to attract guests that are a lot like us, urban vagabonds with good taste. Our guests are independent travelers who want to feel like they are living in Buenos Aires, not just visiting it. If you are attracted to San Telmo, rather than Palermo or Recoleta, you will like the bohemian, artsy vibe of the barrio. Our vacation rentals are all housed in historic buildings that recall Argentina’s heyday. A time when San Telmo was the center and tango was being born.
Our team is small, just eight of us. And our collection is small, we’ll keep it to roughly ten rentals in and around San Telmo. Once you book, we’ll send you our wonderful 18-page guide to Buenos Aires filled with tips, itineraries, and insider information.We’re here for you and happy to help make your trip the best it can be.
To help you choose from among our selection, we’ve summarized each listing. There’s plenty more information and more photos on the individual listing pages. Let us know how we can help.
One-Bedroom Apartments in San Telmo
was our first vacation rental in San Telmo. It’s a one-bedroom loft with a double bed. We have bedding for the single futon downstairs where a third person can sleep. Because it’s a loft, there are no walls separating the living spaces. The living room, kitchen and half bath are downstairs. The bedroom and full bath with shower and amazing water pressure are upstairs. Three people can sleep here, but keep in mind that people downstairs can see upstairs through the metal grate. The grated loft space does not have a railing, so guests with small children may not feel comfortable here. The Loft rents for $60 – $65 US per night, or $385 – $420 US per week, or $1350 US per month.
is a one-bedroom apartment located on Defensa Street. It’s our best location as Defensa is the main street of San Telmo and home to the Sunday Antique Fair. There is a double bed in the bedroom and we have bedding for the daybed/sofa in the living room. So, while The Depto can sleep three, the mattress is quite thin, making the daybed more suited for children than adults. The bedroom is separate from the living area. There is a foyer and a large bathroom dividing the two spaces. An open kitchen makes cooking meals a more social experience and the breakfast area is a lovely little nook surrounded by windows. The Depto rents for $60 – $65 US per night, or $385 – $420 US per week, or $1350 US per month.
is a one-bedroom loft. It has a king-size bed in the bedroom and there is a double futon in the study. There isn’t much separation between the two sleeping quarters, so while this apartment can sleep four, it’s not ideal for two couples. There’s one bathroom with a full bathtub and shower head. And best of all, there is a large sunny terrace with a great view of the San Telmo Pedro Church. Small children and elderly guests may find the stairs difficult. The Hideaway rents for $70 – $75 US per night, or $420 – $490 US per week, or $1500 US per month.
The Terrace is a spacious one-bedroom apartment with a gorgeous private terrace. The bedroom window opens to the terrace, so you can wake up to the birds singing and the lovely view of the San Pedro Telmo church. There is a double bed in the upstairs bedroom and one bathroom with a half tub and a shower downstairs. Also downstairs is the fully-equipped kitchen and mid-century modern living room. The Terrace is perfect for a couple, but not suitable for mobility impaired guests as the stairs are quite steep. The Terrace
