Excellent host! Excellent location! My son had a twelve hour layover in Lima before returning home to Canada and Andres kindly set up a bed for him to relax in before his next flight. Very unexpected and thoughtful. I did not see Andres much but there was no lack of communication through email. I highly recommend Andres' room for a comfortable and pleasant stay.
I highly recommend Andres' studio in Miraflores. It was perfect for me, but could easily accommodate up to three travelers as there us a double bed and a single bed in separate small room.
It was also blissfully quiet and felt very private.
Here are 3 other things I liked:
1. Location: the studio is about 2 blocks to the ocean and Larcomar mall. You can see the JW Marriott from the house's backyard/garden. I tend to get lost easily so it was nice to know that as long as I could find the Marriott, I'd be able to find Andres' house.
2. Comfort: the studio is very private and comfortable. There is a big desk which made it easy to do some work.
3. Wifi: strong and excellent, the router is inside the bedroom.
In addition, Andres was very helpful and polite. I enjoyed chatting with him. And there is an extra phone that guests can use if needed.
Peruvian breakfast is also included.
When I return to Lima I will definitely stay here again.
The location could not have been better. The neighborhood is safe, and the place is located a few blocks from LarcoMar, which is a nice outdoor mall by the beach. Andres was very friendly and accommodating. My computer was not connecting to wi-fi and he took care of it right away. The studio is situated at the back of the house, which gives you plenty of privacy. I would highly recommend Andres's studio to future guests.
I spent two weeks in at Andre´s place Lima in january (summer), eventhough most people had told me I´d be bored after about three days in that city. I can see their point, not a lot of action there, as far as I could see, but Miraflores is very relaxing and nice, the parks by the shore are awesome, beaches are good, weather was just perfect, food is great and the atmosphere is relaxed and safe. I was there to relax and do some reading / studying so for me it was all good.
Andres is a sweet guy, very helpful and has a mega-quick response time, great communication, and very helpful on providing everything you need, basicly.
The studio is also very nice, nicely decorated and complete with a bathroom. You have to go through the house to get to it, but I never felt like I was intruding or being a hassel going through there. And Andres` parents and the maid are also very nice and including people, good chats when you run by them.
Only problem I had was that there is a moldy smell in the studio, coming from the wall. I am sensitive to that, and mildly allergic, so I had a couple of days with allergic reactions like sneezing and a runny nose. Having the fan on at night and moving the bed away from the wall helped me, though. Not that I´m an expert or anything, and I might just be oversensitive, but I´d have a look at that if I were you, Andres. Noone else on here mentioned it, so obviously it´s not a big issue, but I have to say that I reacted to it.
In general, location is great, Andres is very helpful and the studio is sweet, totally recommendable place!
Geir, why you did not tell me you were having an allergic reaction? Lima and Miraflores specially is very close to the sea and therefore humidity is high. There are people who are affected by that, including myself. Because of that there is a dehumidifier in the room which can be turn on to dry up the air. I think you did not turn it on during your stay and maybe that why you felt like that. I haven't smelled anything from the walls and this is the first time I hear something like that. Anyway, I could have help if I knew but you never told me.
Thanks for your stay and the review! Good luck!
Great location - walking distance to Larcomar Shopping Center with convenient access to ATMS, cinema, restaurants, and bars. We walked around at night and felt very safe in this area - many affluent people shop and live in this area. You can easily take a taxi to the Center or to Barranco. Andres was very nice and met us there on the first day - his housekeeper, Juana, made us breakfast every morning. Very private room as it is separate from the rest of the house - very quiet and peaceful. If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing, private, and peaceful getaway then this is your house!
We enjoyed our stay in the studio and everything was clean, well-kept and as advertised. Andres met us on arrival and showed us what we needed to know about the apartment. We didn't see him again during our 4-day stay but we were perfectly comfortable and had no issues. The room was generally very quiet and across a small garden from the main house, which gave a nice sense of privacy. The house itself is very well located - safe and accessible. We are very happy to recommend this space.
The room is fantastic, with a very unique architectural character. Andrés was exceptionally helpful and made us feel very welcome. Miraflores is very calm area, well connected and not to far from barranco which is much more alive culturally than Miraflores itself. Gracias Andrés por tu hospitalidad!
I stayed with Andres and his family for around 12 weeks and it is difficult to describe why it is so good. The room is self contained, private, and of course very comfortable and peaceful. I always got an excellent nights sleep. A highlight must be the artwork the room contains - amazingly created by family members. It was always a talking point whenever any of my friends came over - sometimes my friends would be staring at a piece of art and say "what is this?" And I would reply "I don't know. I think Andres calls it 'Tranquility'".
The location of the room in Miraflores is nothing short of fantastic - a very short walk will take you to Larco Mar which is essentially the premier shopping centre in Lima with everything to cover your needs including restaurants, a cinema, ATMs, label clothing stores geared towards high end needs and even a supermarket. It is very convenient and I would eat there often or go and watch a movie in the evening. you are literally 2 minutes walk, if that from home.
Alternatively you can take a walk down the main road Larco again just se be part of the hustle and bustle of Miraflores. This is great too because you get that big city feel - and obviously you can explore the restaurants, cafés and shops - or walk down to Parque Kennedy and the Miraflores church which is a hub of activity and a very special place on Sundays when everything was a bit quieter. Alternatively you can explore the quiet streets and make amazing discoveries around the corner of boutique cafés and restaurants or walk to antique stores in La Paz. It was all just so easy because the location of Andreas room is just so fantastic and I felt like I got to see a lot more because of this.
If these were the only things that were so great about staying with Andres and his family then I would say to you you must stay there.
But the truth is that there is more. Andres and his family are genuine and generous people, generous of their time and generous of spirit. I can only say that if this room is available then you should book it.
I enjoyed staying at the house of Andres and his family very much. Andres and his family are very friendly and interesting persons; it was always nice talking to them. They have a beautiful house with a lovely garden. The room is huge, very clean and comfortable with a lot of privacy as it is separated from the main house. So if you are looking for a quiet, safe and centrical place with friendly hosts this is definitely the place to stay!
Andres' studio was just what my girlfriend and I were looking for- a comfortable bed located blocks from the ocean in the convenient Miraflores neighborhood. The room itself is nicely decorated and has a little privacy since it is separated from the main house. Andres also helpfully provided contact info, internet connection details, etc... to ensure we had a smooth stay. We would definitely stay here again.
