About this listing
A calming, bright and spacious room in a heartily decorated apartment in Miraflores :)
This beautiful room is part of a three-bedrooms apartment (4 years old, 120m2) where I live in. It is bright, spacious, quiet, and has everything for a comfortable stay. It is furnished with a full bed, an entire closet, and a small desk if you want to read or work in your computer.
It has access to two bathrooms (a full and a social one). Of course, you are free to use common areas (living room, kitchen, laundry) while you're at home.
The apartment is always very clean. Cari, the lady that helps me with the cleaning, comes every tuesday to clean to entire apartment. The rest of the days, I will make sure everything is perfect. Towels and bed linen are changed weekly for stays shorter than 1 month.
Fully equiped kitchen
Laundry machine, hairdryer and iron
Interaction with Guests
I usually leave the house around 8am and return at 7-8pm. However, I will always try to give some of my time to make your stay easier. You can also call me by phone or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) me in case you need anything. Besides, in your room you will find a guide (with a (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) map) with my personal recommendations of restaurants, museums, and art galleries to visit in Miraflores and Barranco.
The apartment has a very strategic location within Miraflores. It is in a residential area full of parks and only 3 blocks from the cliffs that overlook the ocean, the "Malecon de Miraflores", with a breathtaking sight, where people jog, bike, skate or just spend the day watching the sea. Also, fitteen minutes walking distance to the lively Parque Kennedy (Miraflores central park). It also has access to popular markets, supermarkets, a lot of small stores. Besides, it's literally around the corner of growing gastronomic corridor in La Mar street, with great (believe me!) restaurants and coffee shops.
The district of Miraflores, apart from being beautiful and secure, has a very dynamic cultural life, on its downtown (bars, restaurants, cafes, bookstores, etc.) and on its many public spaces (parks, boardwalk in front of the sea).
Fifteen minutes walking distance to Miraflores center, and 20 minutes by bus to Barranco -the cultural district of Lima-. It is at a 4 to 8 blocks distance from to two main avenues (El Ejército and Arequipa) that connect the entire city through bus lines. Also 15 minutes walking distance to Metropolitano station, a bus with an exclusive road that is the best way to get to the city center. Besides, taxis in Lima are unexpensive. A taxi ride to the historical center, Barranco or Pueblo Libre (where the main historical museums are located) shouldn't cost more than 15 soles (USD 5). I recommend to use the Easy Taxi app or Uber.
Regarding the airport transportation, I can arrange a safe taxi pick at your request.

1. Please, avoid using shoes inside the house, helping us to keep the apartment clean.
2. Kitchen and other common areas are open to use. Please clean after yourself after using these spaces.
3. Use coasters for your hot beverages (2nd drawer in the kitchen).

I have been living in Lima for 9 years, but I am originally from Cajamarca, a northern Andean region of Peru. I came to Lima to study anthropology, and I'm currently working as a research assistant on issues related to rural societies, social conflicts and development.
After being an Airbnb host for two years now, I've discovered the reassuring power of mutual trust for building more supporting and caring communities. The over one hundred guests I've hosted already have deeply inspired me to travel, and I hope to fullfill my dream of a long-trip soon.
My main guidance as a host is based on caring for the small details, as I believe that the smallest and simplest things are the ones that brighten our hearts the most.
