We (two adults) spent six nights and were extremely pleased with the experience. The owner, Julio, was very prompt, responsive and helpful both before and during the stay, with fluent English. The home is in a quiet neighborhood about fifteen minutes brisk walk south of downtown. One block off of a busy street, we had no safety concerns about walking in the evening.
The house faces inward about a nicely planted courtyard with seating and a gas-heated hot tub. The main living area has a two story wall of glass onto the courtyard, with dining and seating areas. The TV has a large set of cable channels, including CNN International and BBC World Service. Internet wireless service worked well for us for normal email, document download and web-surfing purposes.
The kitchen is well-equipped and we ate in several nights. The best market we found was the Carrefour on the south edge of downtown. Our favorite restaurant was 1884 Francis Mallman, a fifteen minute walk south of the home. There is garage space for one car, which we didn't use.
As my wife put it, "this is the house I want someday".
We loved this charming 2 bedroom house which is outside of the City Center. The neighborhood is quiet and has some local shops nearby (many of which close for siesta). It's about a 20-30 minute walk to Independence Plaza where the main 'down town' is located which is where most of the restaurants can be found.
The house is very well equipped, sunny and comfortable. Unfortunately it was very chilly when we were there so we did not get to enjoy the courtyard but basked in the sun coming into the living area through the two story windows. Some evenings after long days of wine tours we enjoyed just hanging out here.
The owner Julio was extremely helpful, but before and during our stay. He gave a very detailed tour of all the house had to offer and made some very good recommendations for getting around town. We don't speak Spanish, and English was not as widely spoken as we had hoped. Julio was kind enough to make many arrangements for us. We would have been lost without him. Definitely our best interaction with any owner.
Julio thank you so much and we look forward to returning to you lovely home!
We enjoyed staying in this wonderful Mendoza home. It's a quiet urban oasis that is well-equipped, well-designed, and comfortable. We especially enjoyed leisurely morning coffee in the private courtyard. Loved the vertical garden with beautiful bougainvillea draping the wall.
Julio is a most gracious host and a pleasure to get to know. He was so accommodating of our late night arrival due to flight delays, and helped us with other arrangements during our stay. In advance of our stay, he connected us with a top notch wine tour company to ensure we could get a booking for our desired day.
We enjoyed staying in Julio's home so much that we would definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.
My husband and I went to Mendoza with our two daughter in their mid-20's. Julio's home accommodated us so well and was the perfect place to come home to after a long day of walking the streets or tasting wine in the nearby wineries. We loved being able to walk everywhere in Mendoza and usually took cabs home after dinner. We also used Red Globe tours for two wine tasting days and a day long trip to see the stunning Aconcagua. We could have some meals at home, do laundry and just relax in this beautiful setting. The patio are was our favorite hangout - sunny and peaceful. Julion was also very helpful with restaurant recommendations and I highly recommend Mendoza for a family vacation! Especially if everyone can taste wine!
First time booking a place on trip advisor. It was a phenomenal experience and this place was everything Julio advertised - way better than any hotel in the area. Julio is more than accommodating for our first time to Mendoza, quick to respond, on time, the place was spotlessly clean, and the abundance of information about the area was very helpful. I was most excited about the outdoor grill and well equipped kitchen but didn't have time to cook my own "asado"...however we will next time we visit. It's a peaceful setting in a busy city. I highly recommend this luxury house. You won't be disappointed and can't beat the value. Thanks for making our trip a memorable experience Julio!
