  • The listing was exactly what is advertised.. Isabella is a terribly helpful host, even from afar, answering emails promptly while she is away, and the staff/contacts she leaves in trust are equally as pleasant and helpful.

  • A lovely little room in a great neighborhood.

  • I stayed in an apartment/condominium owned by Isabel's friend, Senora Gladys. Isabel was out of the country during my stay but Senora Gladys was very nice and hospitable, let me in at a late hour and answered all my questions. It's a nice, secure little apartment and I was able to come and go whenever I wanted, as well as use the kitchen.

  • I had a wonderful stay at Isabel's apartment! It was cozy, clean, comfortable, attractive and friendly. The support staff were always ready to help with any querie. The welcome was warm and genuine. As for the neighborhood, it is very convenient and has much beauty. Everything one could need is closeby. I was also very impressed by the accessibility of free or low-cost events. Miraflores is certainly a champion of the arts. I visited many exhibits of the works of local artists and was treated to many concerts in the park or nearby cultural centres.
    I give Isabel and this home-away-from home my highest recommendation.

  • We were very pleased with the room at Isa's house. She was easy to plan with and responded quickly to questions. The pickup at the airport was flawless. And Isa waited for us until 1:00 in the morning, and was still lovely and charming, even at that hour. The room was clean and comfortable. There were sheets and towels and sufficient blankets. The bathroom was clean. She was also very helpful when we were looking for a place to rent in Cusco and her daughter even did a web search to help us. The apartment is located in the center of Miraflores and very convenient for anything you could want to do. The security is good, so you feel safe coming and going. All in all, I would highly recommend her rooms.

  • I really enjoyed my time in Miraflores while staying with Isa. She is a great host, even from afar and always makes sure that her guests are happy. I felt very safe, and everything was clean and orderly. My housemates were also great. Overall, a great experience and anyone who is looking for a fun and safe environment in the heart of Miraflores should definitely think about living with Isa!

  • I send my mother to live at Isabels house. And i can tell you what she told me, that she had mixed feelings about living in her house.
    As described by her, at first glance at the website the house is a very nice and cosy place, but as soon as she got their, with the company of my brother, Isabel projected an indifference towards my mother that made her feel very uncountable.
    The room itself has a regular size, but some of them are carpeted the carpets are old and dirty my mothers bed was very old and the mattress had a hole in the middle. The rooms share a 1 bathroom, per 2 rooms. This itself is not the major problem. The problem is the fact that the houses is un-manned, there are anybody there you can other complain to or ask for any help. In one occasion she had to wait for the bedroom until 4 in the morning as the other people sharing this bathroom were inside during almost 6 hours, There is nobody in the house to ask for help and that the lights are off at night and there are stairs she could not use the remaining bathrooms.
    My mother got into a confrontation with one other guest, that was very rude and she being 68 years, had a problem defending herself. At this time only the cleaning lady was there, but she doesn't have a say in the house, this makes the house a lawless place were anyone can do and say whatever they want.
    On the other hand, Isabels dotter is very accommodating and helpful, unfortunately she doesn't decide or can resolve problems between guests. During my mother’s stay she did not have the opportunity to complain, as the owner was not there. i think Isabel overreaches in her roll as a good hostess and should put more attention in the state of the rooms she is getting paid for. Also she should put somebody in charge of the house 24/7. As there are many people in the house it is bound to be conflicts, if no body is there to resolve/defend or help the guest, then anything can happen. She must try to get in more insight on what going in her house.
    Isabel doesn't manage conflict well, she will panic at the first sight of travel and start blaming people without prove or her even being in the same country and finding out what going on. I got a test of this first hand as she flooded my airbnb message board. Blaming my mother of all sorts of things and later finding out this was not true.
    Otherwise it is a very good location and secure from the outside.

    Response from Isabel:

    Airbnb was well aware of this guest and the problems she brought into my home*. I'm very disappointed in the way Airbnb handled it. After reporting the abusive nature of the guest and the bad situation we were in, they only advised me to hire a lawyer to evict her and offered no other help.

    *She smoked, partied, brought strangers, left everything dirty, yelled and insulted other guests and neighbors, stole from others, made my maid cry from all the insults. In 10 years as a hostess this was the most rude and awful person I've ever met.

    You can read my other reviews and make up your mind on who is lying and at fault. I'm just sorry we had to endure this situation for 6 long Weeks. My family and guests felt trapped in our own home.

  • Isabel was my first airbnb host. She was very fast responding to my messages, and very helpful with travel advises. She helped us arrange a taxi driver to pick us up from the airport. Her place is fenced with security and dogs. The bed and bathroom were clean. She provided us towels, linens and a cup of coffee in the morning. We checked in very late at midnight and checked out very early at 4 am. She was very accommodating to our difficult flight schedules.

  • Isabel is an incredibly sweet and caring woman who loves to open her home to others. I consistently felt cared for but independent at the same time. She has a beautiful home in the heart of Miraflores, fun and very safe location. There is 24/7 security outside her condo, which was a big concern for me since I had been traveling alone. Anytime I asked how to get somewhere, Isabel would explain to me, give me a map, or offer to come with me. I learned more about Lima than I would have without her. I would absolutely recommend this location to anyone interested in staying in Lima. When I return someday, I will be staying with Isabel because I had a fantastic month in her home.
