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 Space

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.

You can also view the "guidebook" for the listing to get a clear sense of it's location, in relation to the best places to visit in Lima. The listings "guidebook" is also a great reference on how to make the most out of your visit to Lima from the perspective of seasoned travelers with an eye towards safety, authenticity, flavors, fun and history.

Taxi's are cheap and everywhere, but are as well, but crowded even though cheaper.

  • The apartment is very well located in the centre of Miraflores. Everything was very clean and well arranged. Although we didn't really get to meet the hosts (it was weekdays so they had to work + we had jetlag so slept crazy hours) we did meet Evelyn and her kids who were very friendly and helpful. It was a nice place to stay, near the water front and in the heart of Miraflores.

  • Nick and Evelyn were fantastic hosts, they were extremely welcoming and it was a pleasure to stay in their nicely appointed apartment. As for location, I cannot think of a better place to stay in Lima, and I have been coming to the city annually for the last 5 years. Literally a stones throw from the coast, everything you need is quickly in reach in Miraflores. I will most definitely stay with them again when I am next passing through Lima. By far my best AirBnB experience to date!

  • Awesome location. Very safe and close to everything - market, shopping center, parks, bars, restaurants, etc. The studio is as shown in the pics - very comfortable and clean.
    Nick and Evelyn were great hosts - very friendly and nice.
    I needed the studio for two trips to Lima, one at the beginning of the month for about 4 days and than at the end of the month for 6 more days - they were able to accommodate me both times.
    There is construction going on next door and it can get a bit loud at times. First time around the wi-fi signal was very poor but when i came back the second time Nick had installed a new router with very good reception inside the apt.
    Overall the stay was great - you can't beat the location or the price. I am planning on going back to Peru soon and I would definitely look availability at Nick & Evelyn's apt.

  • I had a wonderful stay at Nick & Evelyn's. It is located in truly the best part of Miraflores only about a block away from the Larcomar shopping center. The place was exactly as described, and Nick and Evelyn were extremely hospitable. Should I return to Peru I wouldn't hesitate to stay with them again.

  • This studio is quite possibly in the best area. It is close to everything in the city. The beach, hotels, parks etc. I am so happy I stayed here. The room is clean and the bed was the comfiest we slept on our entire stay. The best thing about Nick and Evelyn's home is that you get the full airbnb experience. Nick and Evelyn helped us with dinner reservations as well as directions around the city. It was very homey and welcoming for tired travelers like us. Cant wait to come back over the summer.

  • This small compact studio is great because of its location…close to the ocean and 6km of parks, Larcomar (if you like shopping centres) and a major thoroughfare with buses. The neighbourhood is also safe and pleasant with a delicious small local restaurant. Nick and Evelyn are very friendly, laid-back and their door is always open…literally.
