It's a comfortable house in a safety residence with guardians.
It is located 5 minutes from the dowtown (Plaza de Armas) by taxi (5 soles). It is really close to the biggest university of Arequipa (UNSA), to the malls and to the big market.
It's really easy access. city buses are 2 blocks away and go to any point of the city. Also you can easily find taxis next to the house.
We also rent to international students from diferent countries.
It is a place where you can have an international experience.
We rent one bedroom with simple bed, private bathroom and closet. If you need, I can put a second bed for a second person.
You also have access to the living rooms, patio and other places where you can relax.
You'll have internet (wifi), cabled tv in the hall and hot water.
You can use the kitchen as you want (fridge, microwave...)
And also the washing machine if you need so.
Interaction with Guests
I like talking with my guests: to speak about my own culture and learn about yours.
I can give you tips about the nice places to know and where you can buy stuff safetly.
The neighborhood is really quiet and safe. There are cameras and guardians.
Near the house there is a nice little park with seats where you can enjoy the sun, relax and/or read a book.
There are not enough words in the dictionary to describe how friendly and generous are Nena and his husband. They helped us a lot and thanks to them, we keep an unforgettable memory of Arequipa! You should absolutely go there if you want to meet the real peruvian people :)
I made a great decision to stay with Maria Elena. She and her husband made me feel like family and were very caring. Maria Elena's supportive and positive energy relieved my stressful state when my flight from Arequipa was canceled. I enjoyed my walk around the plaza with Maria Elena and her friend. I hope to visit again :).
Maria Elena y Pepe eran dueños muy amables! Ellos le gusta conversar y compartir. Había desayuno gratis cada mañana, y Maria Elena nos ayudó con taxis, lavar nuesta ropa, y disfrutar nuestro tiempo en Arequipa. Muchas gracias por todo!
Maria Elena and Pepe are genuinely a great and friendly couple. Upon our arrival we were greeted like family members. We enjoyed our stay. The wifi was strong. We walked everyday to the Plaza des Armes, it's about 25 minutes. There's a big shopping Mall five minutes from the house. It's a gated community therefore very safe. We arrived as strangers and left as friends.
I had the best stay in Maria's place! The room is comfortable and it's located in a quiet and safe neighborhood. I really felt like I was at home. The entire family is so helpful and lovely. I'll definitely come back
Maria Elena and the whole family were super welcoming, they were super accommodating and made us feel at home. Even though I didn't speak any Spanish we managed to communicate somehow via sharing picture stories and google translate :) Location was 5 soles drives away from the main sites, a very safe area.
