Wow, we really liked staying in Juan Carlos's apartment. It is so tastefully decorated — it was very pleasant to "come home" to this apartment — and it is a very functional space too.
Water pressure, temperature and plumbing were excellent. The bed was comfortable, the linens very nice, and there was good storage in the bedroom for our suitcases. (The built-in safe was nice-to-have as well.) The kitchen seemed well equipped compared to other airbnb's that we have stayed at, although eating out is so fun in Lima that we mostly just prepared breakfasts in the apartment.
Juan Carlos left some chips, Coke and water to start us off.
We shopped at the well-stocked Metro grocery store, about three blocks away (there are ATMs inside and also a Claro kiosk where we bought a pre-paid SIM),
We used the washer and dryer in the basement of the building; it worked well, buy the "fichas" from the doorman. There is a no-steam iron but no ironing board in the apartment. (We also tried out the wash-and-fold service from the Neptuno lavanderia on Grau, which was also good and easy and fast.)
We mostly took cabs into Miraflores, but a couple of times we walked to Miraflores. The center of Barranco is very pleasant too with bars and restaurants.
We kept in touch with Juan Carlos by email throughout our stay — he gave us good suggestions about what to see and do and where to eat. We appreciated the personal connection.
There is a doorman at the building 24x7 — this worked well for our late arrival and late departure times; the doorman was able to give us the keys.
We would definitely stay here again.
The flat is perfectly located in the center of Barranco, and modern, clean and well-equipped. I could not have wished for a better place. Juan Carlos was very helpful.
Definitivamente una experiencia excelente!!, es mi primera vez utilizando Airbnb y no podría haber quedado más satisfecho. Juan Carlos estuvo siempre pendiente de los mensajes que le escribimos, inclusive cuando le pedimos el favor de poder ingresar un poco más temprano al departamento dado un vuelo que teníamos de Cuzco que llegaba en horas de la mañana. En cuanto al departamento es exactamente igual a las fotos, moderno y cómodo, la ubicación es excelente, a pocos pasos de Miraflores y en el pleno centro de barranco, adicionalmente quedan dos lugares para desayunar muy cerca y un mercado de Metro a 3 cuadras. Sencillamente se los recomiendo, cuando vuelva a Lima este apartamento será nuevamente mi primera opción
Once again, thank you Juan Carlos for hosting me during my visit at Lima. JC's place is ideally situated in Barranco, just a few minutes walk from Miraflores. The apartment itself is a dream come true for every traveller, with good equipment for cooking a quick snack, washing your clothes or working via high-speed wi-fi. The pool and public areas in the building are very tidy, new and well-kept. Highly recommend.
Juan Carlos' appartment was wonderful! It was setin the really pretty and safe neighborhood of Barranco, and just a block away from the seafront which I really appreciated. The appartment was spot clean and had everything I needed. The concierge of the building was very helpful and friendly, which I also very much appreciated. Overall, I felt very well received by Juan Carlos, everything went well seamlessly!
wow. this apt is fantastic. photos are a great 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.
