About this listing
A calming, bright and spacious room in a heartily decorated apartment in Miraflores :)
A room full of light, with soft colors on walls and bed clothes to make your rest as deep as possible
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. I will provide you clean towels and bed linen (changed once a week for stays shorter than one month).
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 whats-up me in case you need anything. Besides, in your room you will find a guide (with a (website 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. We are in a residential area full of parks and four blocks away from the malecón (beachwalk), 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 is in the center a growing gastronomic corridor in La Mar street, with great (believe me!) restaurants and caffes.
The district of Miraflores, apart from being beautiful and secure, has a very dynamic cultural life, on its downtown (fbars, 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 close 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, 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.
Regarding the airport transportation, I can arrange a safe taxi pick at your request.

Staying in Sandra's house has been a great experience! She has been such a nice host that welcomed me with traditional Peruvian food that was made by her mum! She also provided me with all the information I need for food, transportation and sightseeing.
The location of her house is good that it is just a block away from all the nice restaurant and it's easy to walk to other places in miraflores.
I would definitely recommend her place to other future houseguest.

About the Host, Sandra
I have been living in Lima for 8 years, but I am originally from Cajamarca, a northern Andean region of Peru. I studied Anthropology and I currently work in a research center as an assistant, on issues related to rural societies, social conflicts and development.
I love to travel, but sadly my work and studies don't allow me to travel as much as I would like. My favorite things in the world are mountains and little pretty handicraft.
I believe that small details and gestures can brighten people's days, and this simple principle is my main guidance as a host of the Airbnb community.
