“We stayed in Tamara’s apartment for 10 days in February 2020. Indeed, she was kind to permit us to stay there even though she was obliged to return early from a planned trip.. she was attentive at all times and very helpfully with suggestions for restaurants and other plans. The apartment itself is huge and it has a very large terrace, which is in shade for much of the day. The apartment is located in a particularly chic part of BA. We really enjoyed BA and we enjoyed especially meeting Tsmara for lunch before we left. ”

About our home
500 square meters or about 5000 square feet in the Palermo parks of Buenos Aires, in front of the lake.
Our flat is the first floor of a classic six-floor building, with a view to the Palermo Park (Bosques de Palermo) and a large balcony /terrace in the posh neighborhood of Palermo, in Buenos Aires.
Buenos Aires is the city that inspired Madonna's song: "Don't Cry for me Argentina" in the film "Evita" with Antonio Banderas. It is the city of Tango, of cozy cafes and restaurants; and of "asado" or barbecue Argentine beef, which is supposed to be among the best beef in the world.
Our house is spacious and extraordinarily well located right in the middle of the parks and the "Palermo Lakes". Its is at walking distance from everything you always wanted to visit: museums, music, cinemas, cozy cafes, parks, lakes, restaurants, shopping boutiques, artsy crafts fairs.

Tamara's reviewsAs a host (8) As a guest (2)
“Tamara’s apartment is perfect for a week’s stay in Buenos Aries. It is a very elegant Parisian style apartment in the very chic Palermo barrio So many beautiful parks museums, restaurants and bars nearby easily reached from the airport, many taxis at front door and the hop on hop off bus stop is metres away. Tamara is a wonderful host and could not do enough to make sure my husband and I and our two friends had a fabulous stay. She always responds to any communication quickly. Her housekeeper Teresa comes each day and kindly did our laundry. We only wish we could have stayed longer! ”
“Wow The place is the Best. The house, atmosphere, neighbourhood. The house is beautiful. Full of character and yet full of light and "happy". We stayed there for 12 days and every morning we had a problem if to go out or stay in. We were very happy to get back "Home" every night. We fell in love with BA. Tamara's place had a lot to do with it. Thanks. ”
“Tamara’s apartment is beautiful!!! Where elegant Buenos Aires meet Paris Chick. Best location in town, across Palermo’s parks, walking distance to several gardens, museums and famous Recoleta. Don miss a coffee in La Biela to see the real Portenos. The layout is large and spacious yet cozy and intimate. There is a lot of culture inside!!! There is a gem in the exchange that is Teresa. She helped us with breakfast and food that always was excellent. The milanesas must not be missed. We didn’t have the opportunity to meet Tamara, but we had long conversations and found that we had mutual friends. She was always gracious and helpful. ”
“We felt quite privileged to stay in Tamara's apartment in Palermo. It is in an historic building and has large, light-filled rooms with high ceilings and beautiful period furniture. And the most comfortable beds! There is a library for browsing and reading, a lounge and dining room with views over parkland and the house is full of history. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and Teresa, the house manager, is on hand to help you out. There is a beautiful entry leading onto a wide boulevarde that is located in the middle of Buenos Aires' green belt and there are museums, restaurants and many places within walking distance. At the back of the house there is an extensive terraces with lots of greenery and barbecue facilities. Tamara was overseas when we were there but she was so easy to communicate with it was as if she was there. She could not have been more welcoming and helpful. This is a luxurious home that provides a perfect base to explore BA. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time in it. ”
“Tamara’s apartment was indescribably gorgeous! It occupies the whole of the first floor of an elegant building. Its size is enormous with several bedrooms, a very comfortable living room, a full-fledged spacious kitchen, a huge outdoor terrace, etc. The entire apartment is tastefully designed and decorated with plenty of beautiful artwork. You will see a lot of books everywhere in the apartment. I even saw many books authored by Tamara. The apartment commands a fine view of the park, which has a lovely rose garden. Situated right in the very heart of Palermo, one of the most charming neighbourhoods of Buenos Aires, restaurants, coffee shops, supermarkets, a bus stop are just steps away. Visiting Museo Evita was very impressive, which is located several blocks from the apartment. Communication with Tamara was always smooth and cordial. The staff in the reception and Teresa, doing housekeeping work in Tamara’s apartment, were all nice and very kind. This was indeed a home exchange at its best. I highly recommend Tamara’s place to everyone visiting Buenos Aires.”
“We had the most wonderful time at Tamara’s home in Buenos Aires. Tamara was very easy to communicate with throughout. The neighbourhood has everything you could need, surrounded by parks, restaurants and friendly cafes. The best evidence I can give of it’s perfection is that we are planning to return next year.”
“We just completed a one month stay at Carmen's prestigious home. This fabulous stay exceeded our expectations in terms of hospitality, luxury, privileges, location (an unmatched experience in a huge and sumptuous home in the "chic " heart of Palermo!), cleanliness and well appointed, in a highly secure building where doormen are courteous, helpful and friendly . We are so fortunate to have found Carmen on Love Home Swap ! Carmen's communication was unique throughout, she was easy to communicate with, enthusiastic, and so kind, extremely hospitable and generous. We could not expect a better host. She helped us with precious information and tips, best restaurants addresses and museums, coffee shops and worthy stores.... Indeed, Carmen, has the best of the best!! Besides , Carmen had a nice surprise upon our arrival : ....Teresa , her lovely housekeeper and cook at our disposal throughout our stay, eager to cook for us local meals and, optionally helping us with washing/drying and ironing.Teresa was discreet helpful and devoted and very kind, permanently ready to answer to our needs. During our stay, we had the great pleasure to be presented to Carolina, Carmen's lovely (and lively!) daughter and had the privilege ta share a dinner with them, spending a memorable time. We already miss them so much, and hopefully find another opportunity to renew this unforgettable experience. Finally, We would STRONGLY recommend Carmen's home . ”
“Tamara is a fabulous guest, very caring and respectful. I would love to have her at my home anytime!”
“Great guest! It’ll be my pleasure to host her again !”
