The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Rafael and Diego were super nice and friendly hosts. Rafael helped me with things from charging my phone to calling taxis. (Rafael, I appreciated the help!)

    The apartment is clean and bright and I really enjoyed having my own bathroom. The building is conveniently located with lots of nearby restaurants and grocery stores. Recommended!

  • It was a great place for us to wind down at the end of our trip. Rafael and Diego were very helpful hosts. Their place is nicely located, with laundery, corner store, restaurent, the sea, etc, all close by. Pina (the cat) was also a nice distraction, chasing his/her tail every now and then. We had a good time. Recommended :)

  • Rafael was very helpful and friendly. The room was huge with lots of light, a big bed, a desk, plenty of storage space and a fast wifi connection. Both the room and bathroom (exclusively for guests' use) were spotlessly clean. I only spent two days there but the neighbourhood was interesting with a good local authentic feel to it. The cat Pina was very cute too.

  • It was the second time we were staying with Rafa and Diego. The first time was superb and for the last three weeks the experience was just as good.

    They are very easy going and the apartment is always very clean. They are also always willing to help with anything you may need. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to have a medium/long stay in Lima. The room is more appropriate for a single person, but a couple (this was our case) can also be comfortable, since it's a double bed. There is plenty of closet space in the room, and guests have their own bathroom. WiFi available.

    The location is also pretty good, you are not in any of the fancy areas of Lima, but Magdalena del Mar is a nice middle class quarter, with a lovely market, and a recently renewed water front where you can go jogging or see the lovely sunsets over the Pacific Ocean.

  • 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

Hi, I'm from Lima, Peru. I lived in Germany, speak Spanish, German, English, a bit of French and a bit of Japanese.
