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.
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.
