About this listing
Studio is right off the ocean 1 block from Larcomar and walking distance to Lima's best restaurants, shopping and entertainment. The neighborhood is one of the most sought after in Lima, as well as being super safe.
The main property is on one of the best blocks in the city and one of the last classic homes on the Malecon. It used to be the Panamanian Embassy just a few years back before we moved in.
The neighborhood is very safe and right next to the Marriott hotel and the main ocean front promenade. It's also just blocks from the cities top restaurants, cinema, grocery stores, and the ocean. The Studio has a small separate patio (no view) with a table for hanging outside to read or just meditate.
The studio is on the first floor of the three story house and has a separate entrance with a private bath with shower, full bed, internet and a kitchenette with microwave, small fridge and coffee maker.
We are a Peruvian, Californian family that live above on the top two floors (no access to main house) and are on-site to help visitors get orientated to the city. Cleaning is included as needed during longer stays and upon departure as well.

Other Things to Note
Super strong Wi-Fi in the Studio
Were a family that lives above in the top two floors of the house (studio on first floor) so mellow guests are appreciated. Not the type of place for any heavy debauchery and no smoking on the property as the smell inundates the upper two floors. Otherwise, were easy going people that likes meeting people from around the world. Guests are provided with independent access to the main property and Studio so they can come and go as they please.
Evelyn made us feel very welcome and was accommodating, check out time was at 12:00 but she let us leave our luggage until 9:00 pm and she booked us a taxi to the airport for a much lower rate than the standard fair. She also recommended an excellent museum for us to visit.
It was a Very Nice place in a Very Safe area. Evelyn is a very very nice person who is always willing to help you if There are any Problems. I Would totally recommend this Place. But Its not very high, so if you are taller than 1,90 Meter (i guess) you could get a Problem in the room. Anyway it was very great!
We never had the opportunity to meet Nick, but Evelyn made us feel welcome. She made sure that we were comfortable and assisted us with everything from where to eat to how to call a taxi. The neighbourhood felt really safe and was close to a mall and all amenities. The suite was clean and very nice for my boyfriend and I - we wish we had more time there!
Nick, Evelin and Chiara's studio is awesome! It is located in the best neighborhood in Lima. They let me arrive earlier than the check in time and store my luggage for few hours after my check out time. If I come back to Lima I will definitely stay with them again
What can I say Best Location Ever and i had never been to lima to know lol. I walked everywhere and loved it :) great restaurants I walked to Makaha beach each day to surf and hit the town for dinner and drinks at night. Only cab I needed was to the Incas ruins (could have walked). good shower pressure and heat for 3 days it was perfect for the $ if its still there next year I'll book it again :)
The apartment was very clean and cozy. It was a great location - in the heart of Miraflores and right near the Malecon (the ocean). The caretaker of the house was very pleasant and helpful. She went out of her way to help us hail a cab to the airport on a Sunday afternoon (where there are fewer cabs).
Nick and Evelyn's home is in a very nice location - just steps from beautiful parks, the cliffs and the Larcomar, and only about a 10 minute walk from the Ovalo de Miraflores. There is a good variety of food around. We felt safe the entire time we were there. Nick and Evelyn were not in town when we stayed, so we did not have the pleasure of meeting them personally, but their maid took care of us just fine. They left a lot of helpful instructions and tips for staying in Miraflores, and the room was very well-maintained. We arrived very late in the night, but Nick and Evelyn made arrangements to make sure we got in okay. We would stay again.
