About the Homestay
My home is in San Telmo historical area, 5 minutes walk to Catedral subway in a quiet area of Federal District . It is a shared flat where people stay for holidays, and short- term study or work stay. Bedrooms are furnished with bed, wardrobe, shelves, table, fans, and electric heaters. We share kitchen- dining room, living room. I live in the flat and have lived in Brazil, England and Spain. I have travelled throught Latin America and Asia widely. I speak english, french and portuguese. People who live at home differ in their native languages but, I boost spanish speaking at home. I love meditation practises and I have trained as a thai massage therapist. I am keen on movies, art, and cultural exchange.

La estancia fue estupenda Marina es la mejor anfitriona del mundo, la estancia con ella fue maravillosa, sin duda volvería ir con ella, hice una enorme amistad, la recomiendo ampliamente.
My stay with Marina was everything I hoped for. She made me feel very welcome, helped me with some arrangements and, most important of all, talked with me about Argentinian culture and society.
I love her apartment. It's elegant, in a beautiful building, in a great location.
I hope I can return!
Marina was a beautiful host ans very friendly. She speaks perfect english and told us a lot of places. The location is also very good with a lot of bars and near to beautiful places.
Marina was amazing. Her positive, relaxed energy is contagious... She knows tons about the area and is so keen to help you get around. A wonderful person to share a home with! The home is very tranquil and clean, and San Telmo is a very central location of Buenos Aires! On some days of the week you can look off the balcony to see an organic street market right below. So convenient:)
