Interaction with Guests
One of my brothers speaks English and Russian. The rest of my family is learning English with our international Airbnb visitors; however, we also teach you some Spanish, and everybody learns and practices:)
- Leave the house keys to my mother, my brother Ronald, Oscar or my sister Deisy when you leave our place.
- Turn off the lights when you go to sleep.
- Check out is before 11 am. If you desire, you can leave your belongings in our deposit and pick them up later in the day.
- No smoking in the premises.
- Paying for airport transportation can either be paid in USD or Soles. Please bring new crisp dollar bills, no rips, no tears.
Awesome! Ronald is super attentive and helpful. The apartment is very cozy and clean. Great location since we had to travel to the airport about 4 times. Definitely will recommend!
Dulce has an excellent command of Spanish. She and her friends were great guests in our Lima apartment. They stayed with us for second time and left the apartment in perfect condition. You are welcome at anytime. Have a good trip to Brasil and Happy New Year 2015!
Everything as advertised and Ronald was very helpful with directions for local hot spots! Great for a stayover between flights ! :)
The apartment is ideal for a quick stopover in Lima, especially if all you need is a place to sleep to catch a flight within the next couple of days. It's also pretty close to the historical center (definitely worth a visit) and to the Catholic and San Marcos universities. The neighborhood is very quiet and totally safe, and there are lots of really good and inexpensive restaurants around (Tito's across the street is especially great).
If, on the other hand, you want to spend most of your time in Miraflores or Barranco, it's really far away (as in 1.5 or 2 hours by bus or 1 hour by taxi in normal (=terrible) Lima traffic—another option is to take a combi to the Plaza 2 de Mayo and then take the Metropolitano, which will take about 45 minutes).
About the apartment: it's small and it only has a bed, a small table, and a couple chairs. There is no closet, but you can ask for door hangers. The kitchen is also small, but it is well equipped. Depending on what you need, this may be just enough, but it's worth keeping it in mind.
The internet is fast, but it's not very reliable; it has a tendency to stop working spontaneously, usually just for a couple minutes but sometimes for several hours. If you get the apartment on the top floor of the building, hot water pressure is pretty low, and it can stop working entirely if someone else in the building is using it.
All of that aside, Ronald, Oscar, and their mother are really, really great (I didn't get to meet Humberto). They were always super helpful, really friendly, and very generous. I hope to see them again the next time I come to Lima.
Juan was a communicative, friendly and polite guest in our Lima apartment. He stayed with us for a month, took great care of our place and also left the apartment in perfect condition. Without a doubt, we highly recommended him. You are welcome at anytime. Have a good trip to Cusco!
We just crashed there in between two planes, but everything was as advertised : the apartment is really nice, and close to the airport. Ronald (Humberto's brother) very nicely welcomed us past midnight, and the small grocery store downstairs proved very useful !
El vecindario es un tanto temerario llegando de noche. Los anfitriones son de buena voluntad aunque el dueño no estaba y nunca apareció. El apto es en extremo sencillo pero digno.

My family and I are opening our house to travelers. We like to interact with people from different cultural background and make our airbnb guests feel as they are part of our family.
We also would like to share what we know about Lima and where to go in Lima. This cultural exchange gives us the opportunity to tell you who we are. We like to keep contact with international people and hear things about their travelings.
We offer you a safe, quiet, and nice environment.
Some advantages of my home are:
My house is well located between the Lima International Airport and Downtown Lima. We are 15-20 minutes by taxi to downtown Lima. Some places, we suggest, to see in downtown are:
- Cathedral of Lima (Catacombs of Lima)
- The Franciscan Monastery
- The Government Palace
- Malecon del Rio (Pier of the river)
You can also take the panoramic bus and you can compare the old Lima and new Lima, that has over 8 million inhabitants. We can consider it as a busy city.
Peru is three times the size of California. So you have a lot to see other than Cusco and Puno.
If you like eating, you should check out Peru’s annual food festival in Lima, Mistura, (more than 300,000 attendees). The next one is in September 2015. You can spend all day in this huge fair. Seafood, Steaks, rotisserie chicken, pork and lamb (and many vegetarian options too!).
Drinks like Pisco Sour, Purple Corn juice (Chicha Morada) and Fermented Corn juice (also called Peruvian/Inca beer) or Chicha de Jora are a must.
Desserts made of dark chocolate, rice pudding with purple corn pudding, and ice creams like Zambito are just delicious.
If you have any questions, please email us. We are here to help you.
