Miraflores is the safest and most turistic distric in Lima Peru. This appartment couldn't be better placed. It is located 1 block away from Larcomar shopping mall, and a walking distance to restaurants, bars, discos, etc. Quiet and nice neighborhood.
It is a 2 bedroom appartment. The main room has a 32' TV, with cable TV, storage for luggage and it is so spacious that even has a desk inside so you can get some work done during your vacation, or maybe just plan your next vacation! The second room is small and has a single bed.
The kitchen has everything you need: from morning coffee to christmass dinner! you can cook just about anything.
The living room and the dining room are together, and the minimalist decoration provides a open space atmosphere. You can also access the terrace from the livingroom and enjoy the bamboo lights while you get some tea.
From the Airport take a safe taxi (make sure it has signs of taxi on the vehicule), it should cost about $25. I offer a save pick up from the airport. the taxi driver will be waiting for you at the exit with a sign with your name on it.
Interaction with Guests
If you arive from 7am to 5pm, the key will be given to you from the doorman. Otherwise I will be there yo give you the keys and help you with anything that you may need, so that your stay will be awesome! i speak spanish, english, french, german, portuguese and italian (sorry no russian!). So we won´t need translators.
Miraflores is the most touristic place in Lima. And the safest too!. The appartment is located in downtown miraflores. Close to all kinds of touristic atractions, amenities, restaurants, night clubs, bars, and the best of all: THE OCEAN!
you can walk around miraflores district. it is safe and you will find more than you can ask for!
Rodrigo was very helpful, our flight landed in Lima in the middle of the night and he had a driver there waiting for us so that we arrived at our apartment safely. Anytime I had a question I would send him an email and he would reply right away.
The neighbourhood was fantastic, very close to the ocean and all the stores and restaurants we could possibly want. We felt very safe there.
We loved the little terrace off the apartment and we will miss having our morning coffee out there.
this apartment fits very well to my necessities in Lima. its location is great, around three quarters from larcomar shopping, in which you can find a supermarket, stores, good restaurants, tourism information, ATMs, and a lot of other things. very near it is possible to find "bodegas", that are some kind of minimarkets. everyday there is a guy selling typical fruits around there, you can buy and taste the juicy "cherimoya".
My stay in Rodrigo´s appartment was perfect! The apartment was clean (we got clean sheets and towels) and had everything we needed. the kitchen is fully furnished, the living room is big and spacious, as well as the bedroom that has a desk to work or check your e-mail. The terrace was very cousy to drink a coffee or chat in a fresh environment. The area is safe and close to all kinds of tourist attractions, like Larcomar shopping mall and parque Kennedy where you can find coffee shops, restaurants, night clubs and bars. It was really a good deal for my wife and I, instead of paying $50/night each in a hotel, we payed $45/night for the 2 of us! and we also safed a lot of money cooking in the apartment.
Rodrigo was a very kind host, he sent us information about the things you can do in Lima, gave us maps of Miraflores district and even sent a private driver to pick us up from the airport for $25. He made it really easy for us. He also answered to all our questions and made reccomations of places to eat and to go out.
I would highly reccomend this place to anyone!
Communication was good. Location is great. But I was not fully satisfied - you can find better apartment for such price. It looks worse than on photo. Floor was filthy/dusty - had to wash it myself. Overall feeling - apartment was cleaned very well. There were two of us, but there was only one bathing towel.
Eugene, you arrived in the last minute. but i manged to have the apartment ready for you on time. the cleaning lady had to hurry up, because you asked me if it was possible, so maybe she didn t do the best cleaning because she didn t had enough time. i apologize for that. she normally does a great job! you never told me you were coming with another person, otherwise i would have another towel for him.
Rodrigo was such a great host! He was very helpful and offered all the assistance he could. The bedroom was larger than expected and the sheets were clean. The kitchen has everything you need, including a fridge, a washing machine, dishes, etc.. Last but not least, the location is very central and that was the main reason why I booked this apartment. I highly recommend Rodrigo to be your Airbnb host in Lima.
My husband and I had a great time in Miraflores. Although the washer in the apartment wasn't working and the second bedroom had a tiny bed, Rodrigo was very nice bringing extra sheets and a pack and play for our baby.
Location was good, and cheaper than most hostels in the neighborhood. Rodrigo was helpful and the doorman was very nice (though didn't appear to speak english; my limited spanish was sufficient). I stayed at a hostel about 8 blocks north in a private room for $55/night the week before staying here, and it was a much nicer arrangement.
I rate 2 stars, for a few reasons:
-Place needs a really good clean, though: a LOT of mold in the shower & shower curtain & an awful mildew smell from kitchen cabinets. There were also ants and little flies in the bathroom and bedroom, which isn't something I encountered at any of the 4 hotels/hostels I stayed at in Miraflores in my time there.
-Second bedroom was not practically usable. Very small, with a childs-sized bed, and a whole cleaning closet full of chemicals filled the room (this may be because I was traveling alone; maybe they clear it out if you have a party of 2+)
-Unless I missed it, there were no instructions on how to activate the hot water. I figured it out (and the host responded pretty quickly to my email), but it required 45 minutes of warmup time, so was too little/too late (turn the water heater on as soon as you get there).
-The linens and pillows on the bed (not the ones in the photos) were long, long overdue for a change, too.
-You can hear _everything_ that happens outside the apartment. Several dogs in the building were so loud that they sounded like they were in the apartment, and they barked as late as 1-2 in the morning. From the bedroom, you can hear people enter the building (which also happened at all hours) as well as cars drive by on the street. I stay up late, so didn't bother me but definitely something to note.
Also, just a tip, and this was my mistake: if you leave after hours, remember to open the front gate BEFORE shutting the apartment door. I locked the keys inside and had to scale the damn gate at 2:30am with a full suitcase.
Thank you for all your feedback. Im taking note of everything, so that the next person won´t have these problems. Just want to clear a couple of things up...
- It was very clean. I hire a cleaning person to prepare it everytime a new guest arrives.
- Sheets and towels are always washed for new guests. I cannot buy new ones as you wish for every guest. But I guarantee you they were perfectly washed and clean.
- I have never seen ants, nor flies in the apartment. But will look even more in detail, just to be sure.
- The second bedroom is conditioned when people ask me to. In your case, since you were alone, i didn´t thought you need it. But it´s a good advice to have it ready in case you have visitors. Will put the cleaning products in another place.
- With resepect to the noise, I've never heard any complains. I thing it depends on your sensibility to noise. In my opinion it´s quiet. The street outside is not loud, since it´s just a street, not a big avenue. And the apartment doesn´t faces the street, it is indoor. Maybe you were not lucky and the dog had a bad day. But usually he´s quiet too.
