DiscoverBA.com was established by Valeria and Alfredo Candal as a unit of HomeCall International Communications Inc. , (A Connecticut, USA Corporation), in 2006. Our goal is to provide visitors to BA--both tourists and corporate executives-- with an option for upscale, fully equipped, well-located, affordable, and clean short-term rental apartments, with a high level of personalized one-on-one service and care, and with an interesting array of activities and tours to enjoy during their stays.
We currently own or manage a selection of unique, luxurious and conveniently located apartments for your stay in Buenos Aires. Whether you are coming for tourism, study abroad, business, or to just get away from the cold northern winters, or just to enjoy BA, we will do our best to make your stay as convenient and comfortable as possible. We have also made arrangements with local agencies to provide airport transfers, tours, side trips, and activities. We are experienced travelers ourselves and speak several language including English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Italian. We feel that our background in traveling around the world has given us an understanding for what a traveler needs when visiting Buenos Aires: Quick responses to Email and phone correspondence during the reservation process, assistance as needed for transfers and activities upon arrival, and reliable, well equipped, well-located properties that make our apartments your ideal home away from home.
Alfredo grew up in the northeastern United States and moved with his family to live in Buenos Aires in 1985. He was soon hired as one of the initial team of Managers to open McDonald’s Restaurants in Argentina, where he learned the core values for success in a retail venture: Quality, Service, Cleanliness, and Value. Five years later, he returned to USA to pursue an MBA. After graduation, he focused on International Telecommunications and started his entrepreneurial career in 2001 by creating HomeCall International Communications Inc. He returned to live in Buenos Aires in 2004. Valeria, on the other hand, was born and grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After meeting and marrying Alfredo, she spent 13 years living with him in USA, where she studied and developed her professional career. Two years after returning to Buenos Aires in 2004, both Alfredo and Valeria decided to collaborate in the forming of DiscoverBA.com
Today we are proud of what we have accomplished and grateful to all the visitors we have had. We look forward to welcoming you to one of our apartments soon, and helping you to best DiscoverBA!
