advice on apartment renting

by cuixotiq

hello all - i was just wondering if i could ask for any and all's advice with regards to renting an apartment in buenos aires. my plans are stay for about a month in july 09 and have hopes to stay in the las canitas district. there are quite a handful of services available, but i'm just looking to find a company that will offer the least headaches (and distresses) as possible. so far i've seen some nice apartments on www.barts.com.ar (but i haven't read one review on them which makes me feel a bit uneasy). i've also seen a couple of nice apartments on bairesapartments.com, but some reviewers have been rather passionate about not recommending them. any recommendations or thoughts would be absolutely appreciated!

Hi - I have not rented with either of the companies you mentioned. However, I have rented through www.vrbo.com and www.homeaway.com and both were good. Happy Travels!

There are so many agencies that have popped up in the past few years, most try to do a good job but are inexperienced and leave much to be desired. Some you will find misrepresent the properties or use a bait and switch. One person that I can recommend highly is Facundo Yebne, he has been in the business for many years and is very easy to deal with. His direct email is fyebne@hotmail.com and just tell him I referred you.

Since you will coming to Buenos Aires in the winter,finding an apartment should be very easy, as this is not tourist time.
Your best bet would probably be craigslist buenos aires. The vacation rental section lists apartments that are generally listed directly by the owners.
I would certainly wait until next May to look for a place. If you wait towards the last minute, you'll get a better deal.

Have a look at these agencies, www.apartmentsba.com,www.buenosaireshabitat.com,www.bytargentina.com,www.argentinahomes.com. All are reputable agencies in the cities with many years of reliable service.

don't discount craigslist
what about www.adoos.com.ar ?

Re: advice on apartment renting

I would definitely recommending avoiding apartmentsba.com. I had recommended them to friends from Seattle who visited in November. They were not provided the apartment they had booked, were told at the last moment that it was "not available" even though they had booked two months in advance. The replacement apartment was not at the same standard and their bedroom adjoined the elevator shaft, making sleep rather difficult. In addition what was supposed to be a luxury apartment was furnished very poorly, living room consisted of four straight, hard chairs. The agency failed to respond or offer any alternatives other than they were not aware of any problems with the apartment. And with all due respect to my friend Rick, I would not label ApartmentsBA as being reputable :) disreputable maybe :)

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

The Cemetery

by la_beba

This mausoleum is an example of architecture in Cemeterio de la Recoleta, in the upscale Recoleta barrio of Buenos Aires. The cemetery is the final resting place of many of Argentina's wealthy and famous, including Eva Duarte de Perón.
Visit my Recoleta travelogue for more pictures.

Los Desaparecidos

by Maggies

Following Peron's death his third wife, Isabel, became Latin America's first woman president. She had no experience in government. The country was torn by extreme inflation (300 percent) and terrorism. Guerrilla groups bombed, kidnapped and carried out executions, disrupting the country. In 1976 military leaders arrested Isabel Peron and took control of the government.
Then, they dissolved the Congress, outlawed political parties, banned worker strikes ,and eliminated free press. The military then focused its attentions on the dissidents and guerrilla groups. In the late 1970s, the military began a "dirty war." The leaders were able to destroy the power of their enemies with a violent campaign of kidnapping and killing. It's estimated that 9,000 to 30,000 people disappeared then, most of them never being found. Their Mothers started gathering on Plaza de Mayo hoping to find out where their sons were. This is how the walks or marches around the Plaza originated. In order to be identified and recognized, the Mothers began to use a white handkerchief around the head that eventually turned into their symbol. They began as a small group that grew up to being 300 to 400 Mothers and little by little they were joined by fathers, brothers, wives, children and grandsons of the disappeared.
The Mothers of Plaza of Mayo continue with their marches every Thursday around the Plaza de Mayo.

CRACY FOOTBALL FUNS...

by marcelo15

In my last day of activities before going back at home i had the greatest chance to attend to a football match, between RIVER PLATE & PAOLISTA from brazil. Of course that i couldn`t be able to get there without the help of my argentinian friend, Estefania. who is definitely a fun of River.
It was so nice to be there and i have to say that THANKS ESTEFI for taking me there...
Note: i think is important to mention that as my friend, estefania, told me is safer for foreigners to go to a safer place of the stadium. we went to a quite place, which, is called PLATEA. is safer because is a bit dangerous to get where the funs are located...(POPULAR) I think if you enjoy taking photos a great camera and louder voice to screen the goals...jeje

Palermo Lake:
Beautiful lake...

by Flamenc

Palermo Lake:
Beautiful lake in the middle of the city where you can walk and drink mate at its side.
It´s placed in Palermo, you can go ther from the city centre with buses, maybe from Recoleta. For example, line number 130. (The picture is maybe to beautiful)

Terrific Tango

by SabrinaSummerville about Michelangelo

Argentina is recognised as the home of Tango, so as I had just one night to spend in this amazing City there appeared to be just one thing to do - take in a Tango show!

We opted for Michelangelo from a choice of two, and we were so delighted with our choice!

They collected us from the hotel at 7.30pm and we drove through the streets to the oldewr part of town where the roads were cobbled. Already the atmosphere was building.

We dismounted the bus in front of an old stone building and walked through the arc hed doorway into a huge stone vaulted hallway. In the noooks in the hall antique instruments were displayed and carefully lit.

We were lead into a room to the left where glasses of champagne were proffered and a live saxophonist entertained us all. Plates of hot Argentinian canapes were served and our champagne glasses were topped up as the group mingled and chatted.

After an hour or more we were lead up a red velvet carpeted and curtained stairway to a large room with a stage. Orders were taken for our main course dinner - a choice of five or six lovely dishes. As the food and wine were served we enjoyed a fantastic tango dance performance and wonderful singing.

The night ended at about 11.30pm and I can safely say there wasn't a single disappointed person in the house. Anything goes dress wise, but you will feel like dressing up.
