Hi Vicki

Once again we enjoyed a month in wonderful BA. Stephen seems very dedicated to his new but temporary role. He really seems to enjoy watering the plants, sweeping and washing the sidewalk in front, picking up any fallen leaves in the garden, etc. Stephanie treats Cleo like a princess and brushes her coat regularly. In addition, they seem to know the city very well which is a plus for your guests. In our opinion, you and Rob have chosen your substitute hosts very wisely.

Hope the two of you are enjoying yourselves wherever you are.

Looking forward to a return trip.

Audie and I invariably enjoy the places we visit but rarely have we left a city or  our accommodation with more regret than we did Buenos Aires and the Casa Luna.  And we will return!  Located in Barrio Montserrat - a twenty minute walk from the Plaza de Mayo and the attractions of the city center - Casa Luna is, nevertheless, part of a residential neighborhood.  And one feels embedded in the real life of Buenos Aires rather than the artificiality of the “tourism zone.”  Eating at neighborhood cafes and restaurants, shopping at corner stores (you can cook a meal or two for yourselves if so minded), attending a nearby milonga or simply walking the well-treed residential streets,  one gains a sense of the city’s real character and even makes a friend or two.  Without exception, in our brief experience, one encountered amiable, courteous folk always ready to help two strangers in their midst.

Hi Vicki
 
Tom just reminded me today that we have not yet sent you a thank-you for your wonderful hospitality, as usual.  We were barely unpacked from BA when he drove to Boston for a visit with his daughter and family and I had to get back to work for the beginning of a new semester.
 
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Luna, as usual.  We appreciate your advance notice of the rolling subway strikes, taking the car from the airport, your instructions for washing the fruit in vinegar water, where to shop, etc.  We want you to know that we did the two-day bike tour and we highly recommend it for future guests if they have such an interest.  We were blessed with wonderful weather which made it all the more enjoyable.  Neither of us can figure out why residents complain of the heat in BA in December as it was absolutely perfect for us. 
 
We also want to tell you that Charley was an excellent host.  He shopped for the best exchange rates for our money, made restaurant recommendations, and kept us up-to-date on the time and locations of the milongas.  We were especially appreciative of his help on our final day as he ordered the car for us and helped us with last minute details.  How fortunate that you found someone like him as he is fluent in so many languages and he certainly knows his way around the city well
 
The welcome Cokes in little glass bottles were especially appreciated although they did not last long.  Fortunately, we found a couple suppliers nearby.
And Tom wants me to be sure to mention that handing him 500 pesos upon his arrival, prior to getting dollars exchanged, was above and beyond all expectations.  He said the Sheridan or  Marriot would NEVER have provided such thoughtful service.
 
Hope you and Rob enjoyed your holiday travels as much as we did.  We are already looking forward to visiting BA again.

"We had the good fortune to stay at Casa Luna in August 2012. Vicki and Rob were very gracious hosts and made us feel most welcome. We stayed in the Peron room and found it to be very comfortable. Casa Luna is located in a quiet neighborhood in close walking distance to many milongas which we found very convenient. We highly recommend Casa Luna. Thanks Vicki and Rob!" Rusty and Jo

BTW, could you let me know what kind of mattress was in our room. It was really comfortable and we need to replace ours.

Hugs and have a safe return to BA.

Hola Victoria:

The flight back was uneventful and I actually had two seats for myself, which was really nice and the plane wasn't that full. 
Thanks for the refund check which I received on Saturday.

What I enjoyed most of having you and Rob is "guides" to the milongas as it is really a big plus when you go with someone who knows
there way around.

Casa Luna est idéalement située pour un séjour tango à Buenos Aires, au coeur du quartier de Montserrat, avec ses nombreux restaurants et commerces, à mi-chemin (quelques minutes à pied) des milongas de Chiqué et Nino Bien. 
L'endroit est desservi par de nombreuses lignes de bus, le métro est tout proche, sans parler des nombreux taxis qui passent à toute heure...
Nous avons apprécié au cours de notre séjour de plusieurs mois le confort des prestations offertes autant que les bons conseils en tous domaines de notre hôtesse.
Excellente danseuse, connaissant tous les lieux à fréquenter de la capitale, elle pourra au besoin vous faire bénéficier de son expérience pour que vous profitiez au maximum de votre séjour.
Avec tous nos remerciements à Vicki,
Pierre GEORGE et Mireille Latour (Nice/France)

In february verbleef ik twee weken in Casa Luna. Ik had een fijne kamer met een heerlijk groot bed en de badkamer om de hoek. Ook is er een prachtig dakterras met het grootste deel van de dag zon en een prachtige (schaduwrijke) tuin. We werden er zeer gastvrij ontvangen en de eigenaar introduceerde ons en reserveerde op verzoek een tafel in de milonga's. Dat het ook nog een goede danser is, was een cadeautje! De danszaal is geweldig, je kan daar oefenen of gewoon lekker dansen, wat we vaak deden. De afstand naar de meeste milonga's is goed en anders zijn de taxies goedkoop. In de buurt zijn voortreffelijke restaurants, waar je een formidabele steak kunt eten. Ik heb er genoten en beveel het van harte aan!

I had a lovely time at the garden apartment at Casa Luna.  It was quiet and peaceful and I loved the beautiful garden views and visits from Mr Maximiliano.  The location is great with bus and subway connections close by, several milongas within walking distance, the self contained kitchen and bathroom were perfect and I felt safe and secure. It’s not in a real touristy location so prices are reasonable in the area for restaurants etc. 
 
Rob & Vicki freely offer their help and advice on everything anyone could possible need including changing money, taking me to the milongas, even inviting me into their home for private house parties and  dinners… and Vicki is an amazing chef (I’m still thinking about the roast chicken).   If you want somewhere to stay in BA where you can have privacy but not be totally alone then the Garden Apartment at Casa Luna is ideal! 
 
Thank you Vicki & Rob!!
 
Ciao & besos,
Jeanie

Thank you for a lovely stay (June/July 2014) at your garden apartment at Casa Luna. I felt very secure and was quite comfortable. Thank you also for your care and taking me to many lovely milongas. A high recommend to all tango "addicts".

ADRIENNE'S REVIEW
My stay at Casa Luna in November 2009 has been a fantastic experience. The garden apartment was an oasis in the middle of the busy city. In the morning, I could hear the birds’ wake up call! Unfortunately, Vicki had to leave for the USA unexpectedly soon after my arrival, but she left me in the capable hands of her partner Rob and “gate keeper”Ana. Their help and assistance in every possible way made me feel right at home! I am more than happy to have chosen this location. Therefore I can recommend Casa Luna to anyone who wants to be where the action is and at the same time retreat from the crowded city life!

After a recent trip to Buenos Aires, I feel compelled to provide the following recommendation for Casa Luna:
“If you want to enjoy the Tango atmosphere first hand without breaking the bank, you cannot beat Casa Luna in Buenos Aires. I found it to be affordable, safe, clean, and in the heart of the Tango district. When I wanted to explore other parts of the city I had the option of stepping out the front door and hailing a taxi or walking a couple blocks to the subway. 
The accommodations were quite charming. There is a lovely entrance and courtyard with a tropical atmosphere. I stayed in the smaller quarters that included a bedroom with a TV, and kitchenette. The bathroom was extremely nice and almost as large as the bedroom. I toured the larger quarters and found it to be absolutely beautiful and spacious while too large for one person.

"For a really superior value in Buenos Aires consider Victoria Luna's 4-Star Villa and Garden Apartment. It is located in the heart of all the activities and only a short 3-block walk to the the Independencia subway station, yet located on a quiet street that is not a busy bus route. This affordable yet beautiful accomodation is enhanced by Vicki's personal attention to her guests. She was an outstanding source of information concerning shopping, milongas, sight-seeing, banking, restaurants, tango lessons, and any other questions a guest could have. She not only became our landlady while there, but we now consider her our long-term friend.

Be sure and see her affordable Villa and Garden Apartment at www.buenosaireshouse4rent.com and you will understand why we already have reservations there for next year!!!!

My review, Thanks. See you in La sometime

I rented a room for a month in Buenos Aires in Casa Luna owned by Vicki and her partner Rob. I was centrally located with many bus lines accessible within one to two blocks and the subway a tree block walk. Many Milongas are a short bus ride away. The house is clean, comfortable and decorated in Art Deco style, with wireless and dish TV. There is a complete kitchen to cook in which I hardly used except to store the leftovers from the great local neighborhood restaurants. They are very reasonable and very good.

Liebe Vicki und Rob,       (English below)

 

Wir möchten uns herzlich für die sehr warme Aufnahme in eurem Haus bedanken. Die Einführung in die Hausregeln und die Sicherheitsmaßnahmen innerhalb und außerhalb des Hauses halten wir für sehr notwendig.

Im Haus konnten wir neben unserem schönen Garten-Appartement auch die anderen Räume mitbenützen. Vickys Massage-Pläne nach unseren häufigen Milongas haben wir gerne angenommen. Jeder konnte auf Wunsch an einer privaten Tangokursstunde teilnehmen, die auf dem tollen Parkettboden und in dem einmalig beschallten Tanzraum ein wahrer Genuss war und uns fit für die lokalen Milongas machte.
