About this listing
Welcome to your home in Barranco, Lima!
The house is located in Lima's artistic neighborhood, closeby modern art galleries, museums and plenty of good restaurants and bars. You will have your private room in our comfortable & characteristic place!
Your room has 2 single beds, which can be put together, making a double queen size bed. We'll provide linens, extra blankets during winter season (it can get pretty cold here in Lima every now and then!), towels and soap.
We have only one bathroom in the house, so you'll need to share with us.

There are a variety of fruit and fresh fruit juice available for everybody staying with us! You're of course welcome to use the kitchen for cooking or to prepare coffee/tea. One shelf in the fridge is reserved for your groceries.
Our personal favorite space of the house is the rooftop terrace, which has a grill area & big table on which we'll be serving Peruvian style dinners in the near future - stay tuned!
The terrace can of course be used by anybody staying at our place.
There is a washer available on the rooftop terrace. We'll provide you with soap.

Great location, comfy bed and an excellent wifi. I was sick the first day we were there, but it really helped feeling like I was in a homely environment.
Tess and Antonio were incredibly welcoming, provided us with a map of the area with some delicious recommendations, and helped us get to the airport for a ridiculously early flight.
Barranco es nuestro lugar favorito de Lima, es tranquilo y seguro, esta lleno de buenos restaurantes y bares, la arquitectura del lugar es espectacular. En cuanto a nuestros anfitriones Tess y Antonio, fueron muy amigables y hospitalarios, siempre dispuestos a darnos la información necesaria para nuestros recorridos diarios. Su casa es limpia y tiene todas las comodidades.
Tess and Antonio were super nice to us and gave us a lot of helpful tips about Lima and our next destinations. The neighborhood is beautiful and the house is just sweet. Everything was very clean and cozy and we felt comfortable.
Tess & Antonio were super friendly! The apartment was just as pictured and in a convenient location. Barranco is a beautiful neighborhood with great coffee shops (Tess & Antonio had a great map of their recommendations!) and street art!
Tess and Antonio's apartment was one of our favorite places that we stayed during our travels in Peru. Tess is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, and has a great sense of humor. They were kind enough to set up transportation for us to the airport early in the morning, and got up to ensure that our departure went smoothly. For our arrival, Tess sent us great directions for the taxi driver, which was very helpful. Beautiful house, beautiful people, in a great neighborhood in Lima. Highly recommended!
We had an incredible stay with Tess & Antonio!! The apartment is great - spotlessly clean with lots of artsy touches, and in an amazing location in Barranco (close to tons of great bars, restaurants, a big supermarket etc). Tess and Antonio were fabulous hosts, it felt more like we were staying with old friends rather than people we'd just met! They were always up for a friendly chat, and provided us with fantastic recommendations for places to eat (the food we had while staying with them was the best we'd had during our entire Central/South America trip!). We really can't say enough good things about them and their place - would recommend a thousand times over :)
Tess und Antonio leben in einem wunderschönen kleinen Häuschen in Barranco. Von Anfang an sehr gute Kommunikation, alles ist perfekt organisiert und super sauber. Wir konnten umsonst waschen und die gut ausgestattete Küche nutzen. Heisse Dusche, pefrektes Wifi! Das Zimmer ist geräumig und wir hatten die Unterkunft inclusive Dachterrasse die meiste Teit für uns. Ins Center von Barranco läuft man 10 Minuten, um die Ecke gibt es jede Menge Bars und Restaurants. Tess war superoffen und hat uns mit Tips für die Weiterreise versorgt. Das absolut perfekte "home far away from home"!!! Dankeschön!

About the Host, Tess & Antonio
After living respectively two and three years in Buenos Aires we decided that the time had come to go out there, living in various cities throughout South America to find a ‘new place called home’. The selection process was not an easy one! We picked 5 cities – Florianopolis, Salvador de Bahia, Lima, Medellin and Bogota – and will be living in all of them in between 4 and 6 weeks.
We’re curious about new places, local people and food fanatics! And will do everything possible to experience all of the selected South American cities as a local by living in normal bairros or barrio’s (Portuguese and Spanish) and eating in every small but oh so local cantina!
The journey has ended for now and we're currently calling Lima our home. You're more than welcome to come and stay with us!
