We had a wonderful stay at Juan Carlos's apartment - it is in the best possible location in Lima, surrounded by wonderful restaurants and shops. The apartment itself is lovely, clean and spacious.
Juan Carlos was an awesome host and the apartment was also an excellent experience. It looks exactly as the pictures show and is located in a great location in Barranco. You can walk to the puente de suspiros and all other Barranco sights within 10-15 minutes. Apartment is clean and has a nice little balcony to get a view of the intersection of Perez Roca & San Martin. All the employees that work in this apartment complex are friendly and helpful. Also got excellent use of the local line to call for secure taxi service. Juan Carlos was very responsive and easy to reach when needed. I would love to stay here again and recommend to all.
My friend and I stayed at Juan Carlos' apartment for 2 nights. We enjoyed it. The apartment was neat and nicely decorated and conveniently located in the beautiful district of Barranco. Juan Carlos was responsive and a great host. He went out of his way to make sure our stay went well. Highly recommended!
Barranco me gustó mucho. Es donde está toda la marcha nocturna y donde empieza el paseo marítimo. El apartamento está muy bien; es tal cual sale en las fotos. Tiene portero 24 horas, lo que es muy cómodo. Juan Carlos es muy amable y responde rápido a todo lo que se le pide. Fue una gran experiencia
Great neighborhood, with a lot of new places to explore...
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.
