The apartment is charming. It has a cozy atmosphere, achieved with lovely old fashioned genuine English furniture that belonged to my parents. Very comfortable, equipped with everything, it's my second home. Lots of light flows from the large windows and the view is of a quiet street full of trees and flowers. Modern building, 6 stories high, I'm on the second floor, it has an elevator. Location! Location! It could not be better.

The space

1 short block away from the lighthouse (“el Faro”) and the award winning Parque Raimondi, best in all of Lima. This is the part of the “Malecón”( the street and parks that sit on top of a huge cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean) that has less movement, with traffic one way only and no buses or “combis” allowed. Delight in leisurely walks along the landscaped gardens and paths of the “Malecón” while you enjoy the most magnificent panoramic view of the ocean and the city of Lima, and within 10 minutes of the famous Lovers Park “Parque del Amor”. Spectacular sunsets! Just 5 minutes walk to banks, shops and to some of the town’s finest seafood restaurants as well as “parrillerias”. Located on the second floor of a modern six stories building, you can walk up or take the elevator. The building has 24 hour secure doorman service and intercom from the street to the apartment. It is offered fully furnished. Cozy living room with dinning area that features fine English furniture and floor to ceiling bay window that projects into the street and offers a view of the street leading to the park and gardens nearby. The main bedroom has a brand new (Jan2013) queen size bed, night tables, English vanity with a magnificent round mirror and wall to wall closet. The guest bedroom has one very comfortable full size bed, 2 night tables, a chair, a dresser,and wall to wall closet. There are two full bathrooms with shower.

I list only two bedrooms. In fact there are three, but there's no access to the third one which I use to store my personal things. This apartment is my second home.

Response from Maria-Helena:
I had to cancel because I was advised that the ongoing construction in my building would not be finished as promised by mid October and as it is there's a lot of noise and dust, too uncomfortable, not fit to rent. I notified Ricardo and Airbnb as soon as I found out. Very sorry Ricardo for this inconvenience.

My wife and I spent a very comfortable 3 1/2 weeks in Maria Helena's apartment. It is a quiet neighborhood that is only a few minutes walk to about 4 restaurants, 2 supermarkets, an excellent bakery and pastry shop and the walking paths overlooking the Pacific ocean. Inexpensive taxis can also be easily obtained in the neighborhood. We would recommend it to anyone wanting to spend some quiet time in Lima while being near everything at the same time.

We stayed in Maria-Helena's apartment in Lima for two weeks and our experience was superb. The apartment is comfortable, immaculate, and very secure as there is a doorman 24 hours a day. The location is perfect in Miraflores, the best section in Lima right on the ocean. Maria-Helena was very flexible in adjusting our stay when our trip was delayed by several days. I heartily recommend this apartment as the perfect place to stay when visiting Lima. Everyone associated with Maria-Helena and the apartment was helpful, accommodating, and very friendly. Thank you Maria-Helena! Stephanie

Maria Helena's place is perfectly located. Close to everything, yet far enough from the busy area; in a lovely street just a few steps away from the park overlooking the ocean. Very clean, comfortable and well equipped, I felt at home right away. I would love to stay there again when I return to Lima.

I highly recommend this apartment for everything. Great location, close to the water and park, in a very nice and quiet residential area but also with small grocery shops close-by and great restaurants 3 minutes away walking. Comfortable beds and very nice apartment, loved the lamps! Great host, very responsive and friendly. We had a great experience.
