Safe area. Located in front of ''Mercado of Surquillo'' the only traditional market left in the city. Also conviniently located less than 5 min walking to the hearth of Miraflores(parque kennedy) and 1 block away to the new Metropolitano Bus system
The apartment is fully furnished and has everything you need for your stay plus extra useful things such as a big dehumidifier(yeap, Lima's air is very humid so this will help a lot), a washer/dryer machine and a water filter. It has 1 shared bathroom, kitchen and a living room. The place is also very well iluminated and very conveniently located in front of the famous Mercado de Surquillo (the only traditional market left in the city) in a safe area and less than 5 minutes walking from/to Parque Kennedy (the hearth of Miraflores)
Access to the kitchen fully equipped, washing/drying machine, shared bathroom, living room with TV, sofa and dinning table
Interaction with Guests
I'm not staying at my apartment but my friend does :) she is very friendly and kind and will be glad to help you with anything you need or hang out sometimes but it will depend of course on how much interaction you would like to have (if you would like to hang out with her she will enjoy it and if you would like more privacy she will also be ok with that :-) )She also works everyday so she only will be home during some times of the day.
FIRST: Located in front of the famous Mercado de Surquillo so you are like one block away from getting organic farm products, vegetables and fruits. This is also the only traditional market left in the city.
SECOND: Less than 5 minutes walking to the hearth of Miraflores so you are very close to restaurants, supermarkets, bars, and amazing views of the pacific ocean
one block away of the Metropolitano Bus system! the new and quickest way to get around and avoid traffic lines:
- 15 minutes with this bus to the Historic Downtown
- 10 minutes to Barranco area
Other Things to Note
Prices include all bills! (cable TV, internet, phone, light and maintenance). Also I provide toothpaste and soap for personal use and a little bag of chocolates. You can also find liquid hand soap, shampoo and conditioner in the bathroom which you are free use :-)
Please no smoking :)
Alejandro's apartment is very comfortable and well appointed and he was great to deal with, although I only met his sister. It's very close to Miraflores but is across the highway, where the neighbourhood gets very run down. The locals warned me, it wasn't the best idea, to be out at night and the taxi drivers had a hard time finding the street. Though I had no issues with safety, it may rattle others. It is across form a great Saturday market too!
My girlfriend and I loved our stay at Alejandro's apartment. The apartment was comfortable, clean, safe and very close to the markets and Miraflores. Alejandro was an amazing and helpful host as he went out of his way to organise a driver to pick us up from the airport at midnight, after our flight had been delayed. Alejandro was extremely communicative in all matters. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone travelling to Lima.
Alejandro's place was absolutely lovely. It was exactly like the photographs and descriptions. Everything was very clean, the room was extremely comfortable (especially the bed, made of organic cotton) and there was always hot water in the shower. Alejandro was there during our stay and he was very helpful - he gave us restaurant recommendations and even some advice for our job search! The location was excellent - very close to Miraflores (just a short walk over the bridge) and literally right across the street from the market, which is definitely something you should take the time to see while you are there. There are so many delicious fruits and other foods! Overall it was a lovely experience - we felt very welcome and at home in the new and unfamiliar city of Lima :)
Estuvimos en el apartamento 3 noches, aunque Alejandro no estaba, estuvo siempre muy dispuesto para lo que pudiésemos necesitar. El apartamento esta ubicado, como lo dice la descripción, en frente al mercado N1 de Surquillo, caminando solo dos cuadras ya estas en Miraflores. Si bien en el mercado en el día, y especialmente el domingo, puede resultar muy atractivo, no nos sentimos seguros para caminar esas dos cuadras en la noche, es bastante solo y oscuro, recomendamos llegar en taxi. Al llegar no encontramos el apartamento en las condiciones de aseo que hubiésemos querido pero al comentarle a Alejandro envío a alguien para que se hiciera cargo. La cama es bastante cómoda y el cuarto es muy amplio. En general el apartamento tiene todo lo que se necesita.
El alojamiento esta muy bien ubicado, atrás del mercado de Surquillo, al lado de Miraflores y del Metropolitano para visitar el centro histórico o Barranco.
Ademas, el departamento es bonito y nos sentimos muy bien, esta muy bien equipado y hay todas las comodidades muy cerca.
Un gran agradecimiento.
Simply amazing! We lived at Alejandro's for a month and enjoyed every day. Very clean, welcoming environment right next to mercado número uno which can fulfill all your fruit and vegetable needs as well as great ceviche. We will miss Alejandro's bed. It's the softest bed we've ever been in. And the water filter was so helpful. I would stay here again in a heart beat. Margareth, Alejandro's roommate, is super cool and fun and helpful as well.

Hi I'm Alejandro!
I'm originally from Lima-Peru, but moved to New York a couple of years ago where I recently got married.
I enjoy being outdoors as much as possible, explore new places, traveling, photography, interior design, music art, good food and drinks.
Enjoy with your friends, visit historic center, make some shopping in arts crafts shops, have a drink in cool bars and discover the incredible gastronomy in Lima!
