About this listing
Only 3 hours driving from Lima lies The Little Beach Bungalow. Located in Paracas, Ica - our LBB is the perfect respite from Lima and its traffic and weather! With sun nearly all year round, a turquoise colored bay and some damn good pisco sours...you really can have it all for a weekend. Our best kept secret? A hidden restaurant in the desert reserve!
The LBB keeps it basic and grounded: no frills and the water across the street . A rustic bungalow with recently renovated bathrooms, it houses 6 guests comfortably. The kitchen has a gas stove, a toaster oven, and a microwave. The main bedroom is on the ground floor with an adjoining bathroom. The second bathroom, kitchen and dining nook are also on the ground level. Upstairs, on the mezzanine, are 4 more beds and a balcony with an ocean view. The bungalow is fresh, clean, and what we've labeled as "modern rustic."
Have a question and not sure where something is in town? Ask the guard, Lalo. He will help you reach the local bodega. There is no television or WiFi, perfecto help you focus on whats really important: the bay.
Paracas can be reached by private car or taking a bus from Lima to the middle of town, a 12 minute walk from the bungalow. Buses usually run in the morning and evening and the trip is approximately 4 1/2 hours.
We are not usually in Paracas when guests arrive, but are in constant contact with Lalo to make sure things are going smoothly!
Please note that towels are not provided unless requested in advance.
Smoking is permitted outside on the terrace or balcony only. Cleaning can be provided daily for a minimal additional fee. There is a local bodega that has everything you'd need for your stay. We can place some basics for what you might need your first (website hidden): Rate
Please note that the rate listed is if the entire weekend is rented, from Friday until Monday. Check in and check out is quite flexible. If you wish to only rent the LBB for one or two nights, then the price increases to $250/night. Certain holidays when lodging demand is high increases the price as well, but please contact the owner should you have a specific asking price.
We spent 4 days at this cozy house. We were happy to find this place rather than staying in any hotel of the area. Paracas is close to many interesting places. Roberto has been very nice helping us out finding the house on the phone when we got lost, and giving recommendations.
The little bungalow is quiet, just a few steps off the seaside. It has been tastefully decorated with a lovely yard where we had a nice cooked meal thanks to the fully equipped kitchen (only salt from ingredients are available). It is close to the mini-market and the restaurants of the town, as well as the cashpoint and wifi spot located in the hotel next door. Note that it is all open plan so there is not a lot of privacy inside. Also avoid arriving at night as there are no street names and numbers so it can be hard to find. We had a great time there with my family and would definitely stay at Roberto's again if in Paracas.
The house is beautiful and located right on the beach of Paracas! I love how Roberto allow dogs. My dog Sophie had a great time. :-)
The house is very clean and cozy. I like the garden area with a little pool and a dining area where my family and I had breakfast two days in a row. The kitchen is nice where we mostly cooked dinner and ate at home. We felt like we were at home, very relaxing. Roberto was kind enough to provide us with TV and DVD player because mom likes to watch movies. :-) Lalo is so helpful and always there to help. He even went with us grocery shopping.
Lots of mosquitoes at night so we had to close the door and all windows even thought it was hot. I would recommend an electric fan and mosquito net on each bed.
I recommend this house if you want to visit Paracas or Ica.
Paracas fue una experiencia relajante! El bungalow de Roberto fue acogedor e ideal para mi familia y yo. (seis adultos y una nina) Aunque no pudimos meternos a la playa, por el hecho de haber pastelillos (mantarayas chicas) y algas en la orilla, la pequena piscina que ofrece el bungalow fue ideal para mi sobrina. Esta fue nustra primera visita en Paracas, y cuando necesitabamos ayuda o informacion, Lalo, el guardian del bungalow fue mas que amable y servicial.
Quedamos muy complacidos con la hospitalidad.
una casa perfecta! estuvimos varios amigos y muy acogedora, con toda la equipación necesaria para pasar unos días alli. Un pequeño jardin, barcacoa, cocina con todos los utensilios necesarios... unicamente que las 2 habitaciones de arriba no tienen paredes! pero aun así sin grandes problemas.
