About Linda Miele


I do not rent to anyone until we've had personal conversation , so the building, building rules and the neighborhood are clearly understood. My name is Linda Miele Brooklyn and I am the owner. Thank you

Ray and I live and work in Brooklyn, NY. I teach ESL and Cross-Cultural Business Practices to adult executives and lawyers from all over the world. I LOVE meeting and helping all of you as you consider Casa Cervino as your vacation home when in Buenos Aires.

Ray is VP of Leasing at the historic 'Brooklyn Navy Yard.' He's also the President of 'The Knickerbocker Tennis & Field Club' in Brooklyn. It was teaching, tennis, and cruising to the South Pole that first brought us to Buenos Aires. Our hearts have remained here ever since.

We love Argentina and all the wonderful people we've met through our apartment, which we call "Casa Cervino." It's located on one of THE most beautiful and SAFEST streets in the entire city.

We - along with our American managers there who live nearby - - will do everything possible before, during, and after your stay, to make sure your visit is as smooth and comfortable as possible.

Please read our wonderful reviews. Thanks so very much.

Linda Miele purchased this condo in 2006

Why Linda Miele chose Palermo

- - Owner (Linda ) will work with you - as hands-on or as hands-off as you need.

- - CASA CERVINO is open, sunny and spacious.

- - Discounted rates for longer bookings (i.e. 2 weeks or more).

- - GREAT 'American' site manager who will take care of everything during your visit. (She is also our dear friend.)

- - Cervino Street is so safe and beautiful, like a movie set.

- - It's charming, safe, and near everything. .

- - It's Latin America, Europe and the USA in one!

- - There's lots to do for adults and children.

- - The 'Central Park' of BA is only 10 minutes by foot.

- - The street ends at the zoo fence so the street itself has less traffic than most streets in Buenos Aires.

- - The gym is just across the street. So is everything else.

It's walking distance to EVERYTHING!

What makes this condo unique

We have a beautiful apartment ready to meet all your vacation rental needs. You will love this neighborhood.

When you arrive, our wonderful friend from NYC, Llewelyn C., and her better half, Jim, will meet and greet you upon your arrival and make sure you are as comfortable and settled in as possible.

Our doorman/Super, Victor, is the most helpful person and keeps a keen eye on things in the building and on the street too. He can organize an Argentine BBQ (Asado) for you on the roof-top.

We as Owners and Onsite Managers are Unique. We are:

1) Hands on before your trip, during if necessary and after in follow-up.

2) We are not some impersonal agency. Our onsite manager is originally from NYC and will make sure you are comfortable.

3) Speak to me personally about how our onsite manager has gone above and beyond so often to help guests through medical emergencies, unexpected apartment situations requiring immediate attention, ...on and on.

4) We cater to families with babies and toddlers. We have crib, high chair, don't need to bring.

5) Most of all, we personally care that you have a memorable experience in your 'home-away-from-home' in Buenos Aires.

Thanks for considering 'Casa Cervino.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Alex, it was such a pleasure to work with you and your family prior to your trip to Buenos Aires and during your stay as well. Ray and I, as well as our managers Llewelyn and Jim, (L&J) are always happy when a visit by our guests brings families together, as yours did in visiting a child who is doing a university semester abroad in this most beautiful city.

All of us thank you for your wonderful review and kind comments about us. We try to make everything from your first email to us as easy as possible, and will do all we can to make sure you're stay in our apartment ("Casa Cervino") is as comfortable as possible too.

I'm personally delighted that you and your wife and family had the chance to actually go out to our 'special' restaurant there in LaBocca with L&J. It's not a place many tourists know of and so, this had to have made your visit that much more enjoyable.

Thank you again for your kind review. Please come back anytime. Thank YOU for being the absolute best for us as well. We greatly appreciate. Linda and Ray.

Casa Cervino - Apartment in Buenos Aires, Palermo

  • 5 of 5

Casa Cervino was a great place to stay while visiting Buenos Aires. We had five of us visiting my Daughter, who was in Buenos Aires studying for the semester with a CIEE program. The spacious duplex apartment is in Palermo close to parks, the Plaza Italia, Museums & public transportation. We looked for a place in Palermo because that is where our Daughter told us we had to be; the Palermo district is where the students gather with their friends. Casa Cervino is close to the fun places, it was very safe, in a good neighborhood with restaurants & bodegas around that made for authentic, convenient shopping. If your planning a trip to Buenos Aires I highly endorse Casa Cervino especially for a family of more than four.

Owner's Response: Dear Briggs and family, Thanks for your warm words on Casa Cervino. Ray and I so enjoyed hosting your family in our beautiful apartment in BA and are so happy your experience there was a comfortable one. It was a pleasure working with you pre and post trip and so nice that you found our apartment suitable for a family your size. This IS one of the unique features of 'Casa Cervino' which I'm told from many, is not so common to find w/ vacation rentals in Buenos Aires. We especially love being a home-away-from home' for those families who are down in BA, visiting family there and/or children who may be doing a semester abroad. Our 'meet and greet' managers there loved your family. From all of us, we thank you very much again for choosing our apartment 'Casa Cervino' as your home during your time in BA. We know you had many choices. We are so appreciative we had the honor of hosting you and your family. Happy holidays to you and thanks so much again. Warmest regards, Linda and Ray.

A jewel in the heart of Buenos Aires

  • 5 of 5

From the moment the owner Linda knew our dates and interests she became the travel agent we always wanted to have. We were inundated with information from her own experiences, articles, pictures, recommendations and more. And she remained in contact throughout our stay, making sure that we were happy. As our trip approached she handed us off to Llewelyn and Jim, who live in Buenos Aires and look after the apartment. So if Linda is the ultimate travel agent, Llewelyn and Jim are the concierge duo from a 5 star hotel. They made sure that before we arrived that we knew everything we needed to know. They then met us at the apartment, helped us with our luggage and got us fully settled into the apartment, which they had already stocked with breakfast foods and other things to get us started. And that level of service continues throughout your stay. In addition to giving suggestions for restaurants, museums, shows or anything else in which we expressed an interest, they made reservations for us, and in one case went in person to check out a restaurant for us. They also took us to a wonderful local, non-tourist restaurant that we never would have found on our own. They are lovely people, and a pleasure to spend time with.

As for the apartment itself, the listing gives you all of the relevant details, and a nice set of pictures, so I won't spend too much time on the specifics. It is a wonderful apartment. My wife and I were there with our 3 daughters, and we had more than enough space, with one extra bedroom to spare. It is all beautifully appointed, comfortable to just hang out in, and has everything you could possibly need during your stay. What I think is more important to mention than the actual apartment (which again, is great), is that it is in a perfect location in a secure building, on a nice, quiet, tree lined street. There are tons of wonderful restaurants all within minutes. You could easily fill many days exploring the abundant parks, museums, shops and other points of interest just staying within walking distance. But to the extent you want to venture further there are taxis, buses and subways all readily accessible. Even the domestic airport (from which we took a 1.5 hour flight to Iguazu Falls, a must see if possible) is only a 10 minute cab ride away.

I can't say enough. The combination of the apartment, the location, and the endless help from Linda, Llewelyn and Jim helped make this a very special trip.

Fantastic location for relaxing and enjoying Buenos Aires!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment with all the amenities. Spacious enough for 6 adults and 2 kids. Close to shopping, restaurants, and the nicest parks in the city! The hosts were extremely helpful and responsive.

Owner's Response: Hi Andrea, Ray and I want to thank you and your family so much for staying at Casa Cervino and for the lovely review. We greatly appreciate and hope you will return again one day very soon. Andrea, I want to thank you specifically for doing your 'due diligence' prior to even agreeing to book. This alone is very important to me and something we encourage from anyone considering staying with us. You asked questions, got a good 'feel' for the apartment as it might be for small children, also activities and playgrounds for small toddlers - -and you had the opportunity to speak to and/or write to a number of our former guests who stayed at Casa Cervino and who also had small children. Ray and I welcome that kind of detailed attention so that WE know...that our incoming guests know as much as possible prior to coming in (no surprises), and that WE are prepared for you and your family in every way that YOU need. This is very important to us. Our American managers who are there LOVED your family...and hope to see you again soon. Happy New Years and thanks so much once again for letting us have the opportunity to host you. :-) Kind regards, Linda Owner

Great location, value and service!

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from our week in BA visiting my daughter who had just finished her semester at the University in BA. This home was surprisingly quiet for a city and within the house we didn't hear each other get up and move about the home. It was a very nice location and excellent value! We were a family of 5 (3 adult children) + our adult neighbor friend. It had plenty of room and we did not feel on top of each other. We had no regrets about staying there! Warning - the internet service is very patchy in the house. (This was not a big deal for us) If reliable quick service is important to you, this may be a consideration. Jim & Llewelyn helped arrange a wonderful meal at a restaurant we would have never gone to without their help. They were very helpful if you had ?s or needed assistance! Thank you for our lovely stay!

Great apartment in a nice location

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 10 days at Linda's beautiful apartment over the Christmas Holidays in 2015. The apartment is in great shape, and perfect for a good size family. Jim and Llewelyn are ex-pats from New York and help Linda manage the apartment. They live very close by and are extremely helpful and nice. The apartment is in a very secure building in a nice, convenient part of the city. Highly recommend it!

the best apartment in the best location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have traveled to Buenos Aires frequently over the last 10 years. We have rented a total of six different apartments during these trips and Casa Cervino is by far the best apartment we have stayed in. Beautifully furnished, spacious ,comfortable and quiet. The location in Palermo Botanico cannot be beat. In addition, the managing agents, Luisita and Jim could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Our one month stay was a total delight. We can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Dear Marty, Post Script to your month stay in Casa Cervino and your verbal 'review' by phone. Thanks to you and your lovely wife for staying at Casa Cervino again - for a month! Ray and I are very appreciative and so happy we could accommodate you both during your time in Argentina for work at the university - - and for the book! You mentioned a number of times and again last week, that the size of our apartment - very suitable for families or 2 to 3 couples - is hard to find in this particular neighborhood of Palermo, near the American Embassy and all those parks. It's true, that when vetting out comfortable and suitable accommodations for larger groups, our apartment IS very much an economic savings. yet a real 'home away from home.' Our meet & greet managers send their regards and look forward to your return. And YES..I will block out your month for the next visit. Thank you so much again. Happy holidays to you both. Warmest regards, Linda and Ray (12/16/17) _________________________________________ Ray and I want to thank you and your lovely wife for staying in Casa Cervino for ONE MONTH - and now......for your return again for one month - again for one month!!! We are delighted you're coming back, and thank you so much for all you have done to tell everyone about our beautiful home on Cervino Street. When you return, you'll find I added a few additional 'touches' in the downstairs guest bathroom (art work....I painted myself)..and new patio chairs on the terrace. Ray and I are delighted that you're coming back and please...let us know if you need ANYTHING!! Happy 2017 and a wonderful month in Buenos Aires. Warmest regards, Linda and Ray
