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.
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.
Guests have access to the Studio apartment and patio right in front of Studio.
Interaction with Guests
We do travel from time to time but are typically on site to help with orientation to the city and Peru. Free travel advice for all!
The neighborhood is walking distance to the best of what Lima has to offer, 1/2 block to beach and very safe.
Taxi's are cheap and everywhere, but are as well, but crowded even though cheaper.
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.
We had a great time at Nick and Evelyn's! Nick helped us arrange a 3 am taxi, and the studio was clean and well located near shops and restaurants. There is also hot water with great pressure (which we later learned is a luxury!). We definitely would recommend staying here! Thanks for the great time!
Tuvimos una muy buena experiencia en casa de Nick y Evelyn. Ambos son muy amables y siempre dispuestos a dar una mano si es necesario y preocupados de nuestro bienestar y de facilitarnos información. El departamento es pequeño, limpio, bien equipado. La ubicación es excelente, en un buen barrio y con taxis a menos de tres cuadras, lo que facilita los desplazamientos a cualquier lugar de la ciudad.
Nuestra evaluación es muy positiva.
Pude conocer a Evelyn, una persona muy amable, fue muy atenta conmigo al recibirme.
Tuve que cancelar mi estadía por un tema ajeno y fueron muy comprensivos en aceptarlo.
La ubicación del Estudio es perfecta para alojar.
The location of this apartment is incredible! You are just 3 minutes walking from Larcomar and can grab a cab to anywhere in the city just as quick. Evelyn was extremely nice and hospitable, gave us tips on where to go, and offered to call a cab to the airport for us. The apartment itself is small but comfortably fits two people. We stayed for 4 days and halfway through, Evelyn offered us fresh towels and for the cleaning lady to come through for a little tidying up.
The only cons about the place were that the bed was pretty stiff and, as another review shared, there were a couple of bugs in the room. All in all, the cons were relatively small compared to all the pros there are with staying here.
Buen lugar para pasar un par de días en Lima. A solo cuadra y media de Larcomar. Wifi rápido. El lugar es un poco húmedo y caluroso, pero para una visita rápida a la capital, no hay problema
Although I didn't meet Nick, Evelyn was very friendly and helpful. The apartment is small but had everything you need. As described it is in a great location just 2 blocks from the malecon in Mira Flores.
Excelente ubicación y Evelyn es encantadora. Estoy muy agradecida con su hospitalidad y trato afectuoso.
Were a Californian/Peruvian family who love the world and all it's variety. We have a tendency to bbq on weekends and stomp around the hosue speaking speaking some form of English, Spanish and Spanglish.
