Accommodations

  • Buenos Aires - You would be part of our hosted experience.  Our house is located in Palermo. A trendy neighborhood full of restaurants, cafes, bars, and other things to do.

  • Mendoza - I am recommending staying in a small town/area right outside the main city.  This place is walkable, with cafes and galleries around, and so close to wineries you can even bike to many of them.  

Buenos Aires 

  • Spot available is in the small shared bedroom and shared bathroom outside the bedroom.

  • You would only share the room with one more person

  • Single twin bed

  • There are only 5 rooms, which represents the style of our hosted experiences. Small and intimate.

  • Total number of guests would be 7 with you.

  • Breakfast included​

Mendoza 

  • I have two options for you. Option One (5 first photos) is in the middle of the city, cute guesthouse, great service. Breakfast included.  Easy to walk to bars, restaurants and parks in the city.

  • Option Two is a country guesthouses/boutique hotel.  It is located outside the city in a cute area called Chacras de Coria.  This area is beautiful, more country, very . walkable  with art galleries, and cafes, restaurants, and close to wineries.  You can rent bikes and even visit some on your own. Highly recommended. It is a short Uber ride into the city if you want to visit the city center. Breakfast also included. 

  • I can also look for cheapest options, or even hostels . if you don't mind sharing bathroom or rooms.
