We had a great stay at Karen and Antonio's! We were immediately greeted by Seniora Fanny who showed us around and offered to help with anything we needed. The deck has wonderful views of El Misti and the city of Arequipa. The apartment was very clean and when we contacted Karen and Antonio with a question midway through our stay, they replied immediately. Happy to recommend to others!
We had a perfect stay in Karen's apartment. Her family was very helpful and the sunny roof terrace was perfect to relax after our walks through Arequipa
We arrived in Arequipa after a long commute and found the apartment to be just as described, and in a good neighbourhood. Karen and I were able to connect over the internet prior to our arrival as she was managing the apartment from a different city. Her mother-in-law who lives in the building made us feel very welcome and showed us inside. The apartment itself is very spacious with lots of room to spread out and feel comfortable, and although it was cloudy and raining while we were there, I imagine the view from the patio is quite nice. Karen was available for questions when we had them and was very quick to respond. There are nearby restaurants and cafes within walking distance and we loved the older cobble stone streets of the neighbourhood and also the fact that it is less busy than the downtown area. Overall a comfortable stay.
The place is lovely with a nice blue terrace. Everything was in good condition and we enjoyed our stay in Arequipa. In the morning, the sun shines beautifully through the front windows and the Misti-Volcano shows up in all its majesty. At night, you have a beautiful view over the city. Karen + Antonio were very caring that everything was to our full satisfaction, and the owner of the house Señora Fanny was hearty too. Thank you!
Although Karen and Antonio were out of the country, they kept in touch via email and responded immediately, and were always extremely friendly.
The apartment is lovely with a huge terrace and barbeque. Yanahuara is a delightful, historic neighbourhood and the Mirador de Arequipa is very near. There are also lots of bars and cafes, and the city centre is in walking distance.
Everything about the stay was easy and enjoyable. Recommend.
Absolutely charming, art-filled apartment. Karen's communication was excellent throughout our entire time. We almost had a last minute change in travel plans and thought we needed a place in Arequipa one day early. Karen was great and went out of her way to make sure we had a place to stay! Misti volcano is literally right in front of the gorgeous patio. The neighborhood is gated and the quietest place we've ever stayed in Peru. Water was consistently hot. If you're looking for a home away from home in Arequipa, look no further!!

I am an artist/educator born in Canada and my husband Antonio is a chef from Arequipa, Peru. We live in Toronto, Canada and speak 4 languages between us ( English, French, Spanish and Portuguese). We have just completed building our first home in Arequipa, and plan to spend our time there when not in Toronto working.
We love to re-purpose things, make things with our hands, garden and cook. All the decorative finishings in our Arequipa home were made and nurtured by ourselves
