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!
Our stay in Lima at Juan Carlos 's apartment was superb. The place was easy to find, key ready for check in and place spotless! Juan Carlos checkin in with me through internet and responded quickly to my questions.
The apartment has everything. We love to cook and the kitchen had everything, down to a blender.
Blow dryer, towels, bathtub, safe, secure, and very nicely decorated.
We just loved it and plan to reserve this awesome airnb again. Thanks Carlos!
wow. this apt is great. the photos are an excellent representation for what you get - super clean and modern.
juan carlos was available on email and text the whole time (before and during the stay) and never complained when i asked for info or help on something he'd already told me!
the beds are super comfortable; there were bottles of water and coca cola in the fridge and tea and snacks set out on the counter when we arrived (much needed after a long flight to Lima).
we love Barranco, but it's been several years since we'd been in the city and were very impressed with how it's booming. just around the corner is an excellent cafe - Sofá Café. highly recommend it! and two blocks west is the Malecón, with spectacular views over the ocean...you can walk to Miraflores - it's safe and beautiful.
also walk over to the (fairly) new modern art museum (MAC - Museo de Arte Contemporaneo) at the corner of San Martín and Av. Grau. very impressive.
love this apt - definitely staying there on our next trip.

As always a great experience. This will be my fourth stay at this apartment in Barranco.
I fully recommend the location as there are many restaurants and is also close to Miraflores.
The apartment was beautiful, exactly as described in the pictures. The building was immaculately clean and quiet. Very comfortable bed, too! Juan Carlos was extremely helpful with answering our many questions. Barranco is a great neighborhood, though do expect to take taxis to restaurants in Miraflores (which is not a big deal - we had no problems hailing a taxi on the street, there just aren't as many restaurant options within walking distance of the apartment). Overall, a really great place to stay in Lima.
El apartamento tiene todo lo que se necesita para sentirse como en casa. Es la tercera o cuarta vez que me he quedado con Juan Carlos y siempre volvería.
