We are 2 brothers sharing an apartment with 3 bedrooms, and are renting the one bedroom that is free to travelers, students, tourists, etc.
The apartment has a total of 3 bedrooms (with 3 real beds), 2 bathrooms, kitchen, living/dining room.
You can have a bathroom for yourself, and you can of course use all the common areas, including the living and dining room and the kitchen; you can use our internet connection, watch DVDs on our TV, play some guitar, etc. ;)
This listing is for the biggest room in the apartment (14,28m^2). (In the details on the right I just listed the one room, bathroom and bed available for guests for this listing.) The kitchen is full equipped with dishes, glasses, pans, microwave, forks, everything you could need. The apartment is in the 4th floor (there is an elevator). There are nearby markets, supermarkets, bus stops, banks, laundry services, etc. We have broadband internet with wifi.
Interesting for students: we are 20 mins. away from the Pontificia Universidad Católica (PUCP) and just a bit further away from the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos (UNMSM). We are also ~20 min. away from Miraflores, even less from San Isidro, and ~30 minutes away from the city center.
Rafael was very kind to accept my last-minute request, and he provided the perfect place to relax for a day of transition between travelling in southern Peru and catching my flight home from Lima. Nice, clean, generously apportioned (and proportioned) apartment. Thanks, Rafael!
Ik heb mijn verblijf bij Rafael en Diego als bijzonder prettig ervaren. De kamer is ruim en heeft een zee van licht. Er is voldoende opbergruimte en de keuken is goed uitgerust. De zee is slechts een paar blokken verwijderd en er zijn voldoende transportmogelijkheden om de rest van de stad te bezichtigen. Ik kan iedereen een verblijf bij de jongens dan ook van harte aanraden.
Rafael is very warm, inviting and immediately made us feel at home. He accommodated our very late arrival and showed us around the apartment. We had access to the kitchen and our own bathroom as well as a bedroom with loads of space. We had a fantastic time in Lima and enjoyed the Magdalena del Mar district! We would definitely stay here again! Thanks, Edie & Peter
Rafael and Diego were great hosts. The apartment was nice and in a reasonable area and the guys provided us with handy information about how to spend our time in Peru.
Hola Rafael, estuve muy agusto en tu casa, gracias por la confianza dada y espero poder repetir pronto,saludos a tu hermano.
Nuestra primera vez en Lima, y les Puedo decir que la zona es EXCELENTE,Un edificio Bien cuidado La Habitación cómoda grande y con todo lo necesario para una estadía Tranquila al mejor estilo Residente ,cercano a el trasporte urbano o sencillamente para ir hacia cualquier lugar deseado muy cerca de la zona de la playa a 15 Mins, Comercios Restauran y el Gran Mercado de Magdalena , Bancos y etc ! El Sr Rafael excelente persona y agradable anfitrión sin duda alguna al mejor estilo Peruano .. Sin palabras negativas de ningún tipo por que no hubo nada malo !
Our first time in Lima, and them I can say that the area is EXCELLENT, A Well maintained building The large comfortable room with everything you need to stay in the style Resident Quiet, close to the local transport or simply to go to any place very close to the desired area of the beach 15 Mins, Restauran Shops and Magdalena Grand Market, Banks and etc! Mr. Rafael excellent person and friendly host undoubtedly the best Peruvian style .. No negative words whatsoever that there was nothing wrong!
My wife and I (in our forties) stayed with rafael and diego for almost a month in October 2013 while we looked for an apartment of our own. Rafael and diego are very friendly and have great language skills. Rafael speaks spanish, english, and german while diego speaks spanish, english and french. rafael is a language instructor and diego is a travel agent. The room is very spacious and bright, has a large closet, 2 dressers, and a desk. Overall the apartment was comfortable and easy to share. the kitchen is well equipped and there is ample storage in the cupboards and fridge for our supplies. Rafael and diego are easy to live with and to get along with and they are conscientious about sharing kitchen etc. There are 2 full bathrooms and you are given one for your private use, while they share the other. Magdalena is over an hours walk to miraflores but there are regular buses which take approx 15-20 minutes and cost 1.20 soles. to head to the center, ie plaza de armas, you can take a bus on av. brasil most of the way for 0.50 soles (10-15 mins). Magdalena has a relaxed vibe, is safe, and is more authentic - welcoming to foreigners but no tourist crap or north american restaurant chains. There is a large local market area. The apartment is 3 blocks from the ocean. The wifi was strong and we never had a problem with it. No t.v. but many movies on disc. remember to bring warm clothing depending on the time of year you visit lima. the guys paid cleaners to come once a week to clean the apartment. ¡ Muchas gracias rafael y diego !
Rafael and his brother are very friendly, helpful and somewhat discreet people. The appartment is situated in a nice and untouristy neigbourhood of Lima, it's clean and safe. I'd recommend!
Das Appartement ist wirklich schoen und die beiden Brueder supernett. Empfehlung!
Rafael was a great host and very kind. He made sure that we arrived safe from the airport and provided every hit of hospitality once we were in his home. His cat Fina is adorable and loves playing. The apartment itself is very nice and clean across the board. Rafael speaks perfect English as well so it's a great place to start a journey if that is your first language. Thanks Rafael!
