The flat was exactly as pictured: clean, bright, modern and beautiful. We enjoyed our stay at Juan Carlos'. Although we didn't get to meet him, he was extremely helpful and responded to our emails promptly. Although Barranco is far from the city centre, it was nice to be in a quieter part of the city, close to the ocean, plus there are plenty of taxis that'll take you downtown for just 20 soles. Overall a great stay!
Quiet and safe location in Barranco. Sofa Cafe and Charlotte around one corner, local bodegas 50 meters away. Taxis all around. Walk or bicycle north to Larcomar and Parque de Amor in Miraflores or south to the Bridge of Sighs in Barranco downtown neighborhood and further south to Chorillos. Apartment is perfect for solo traveler or couple.
This apartment was just as pictured, very modern, clean, and very comfortable. Juan Carlos was a great host. He was easy to contact and responded quickly to all of our questions. He also gave us great recommendations for places to eat such as LA73 (walking distance from the apartment) and Panchita in Mira Flores, both were very good! The location was the best, just walking around the neighborhood there were so many cute little restaurants, coffee shops, and museums. I would definitely come back and stay here again. Thank you Juan Carlos!!
Juan Carlos has a beautiful apartment, all clean and in perfect location. Everything is as you can see in the pictures. We have had a lovely time there and would definitely recommend staying at his place.
Although we never met Juan Carlos in person, the little personal touches to welcome us to the apartment made us feel like we had. Upon entering, there were chips, tea, and coffee awaiting us. The minifridge was stocked with Coca-Cola and water, for which we were very grateful after spending an afternoon in the hot Lima sun. He responded to all of our questions usually within just a couple of minutes, and he gave us recommendations for a reasonable and safe taxi from the airport to his place. The photos are an accurate depiction of this swanky bachelor pad, and we loved every minute of it. If you're American and used to air conditioning, you will probably have a hard time in Lima in general. Juan Carlos' place did not have a/c but he provided two incredibly strong fans. My boyfriend and I slept comfortably at night with the fans and the window cracked. :) Lastly, Barranco was a great choice of neighborhood for us, and this apartment is easy walking distance from some great restaurants, art exhibits, a cute cafe with amazing churros, the Puente de los Suspiros, and the Bajada de Baños which we took down to the beach to have a day full of ceviche, cocktails, and the beach. I highly recommend this apartment for every reason!
