Karen and Antonio arranged for a pickup from the airport, and it was extremely convenient to get to the apartment. The complex was secure and it was nice to know that their family was living below us, just in case we needed anything. They were all incredibly kind and sweet. The apartment itself was lovely and charming, and the balcony featured an amazing view. Location to downtown was a convenient cab ride. I only wish we had more time there.
This is a beautiful apartment with an amazing view of the Misti volcano. It is located in the quiet neighbourhood of Yanahuara, which is roughly 5 minutes by taxi from the main square of Ariquipa. Highly recommended for a couple or a family with small children who can share a bed.
We thank Karen so much for the nice and friendly stay at her house in Arequipa. We felt very welcome and especially thanks to Fanny who was very heartly looking after us. The house felt like a second home for us. Everything is tidy and clean and the view from the terrace is amazing. The house is well situated in a calm and nice neighborhood about 5min by car from the plaza de armas. Thanks so much. We can totally recommend the place!!!
This is beautiful and spacious apartment located within walking distance of Plaza Yanahuara. It is also about a 20-min walk from Plaza de Armas. Karen and Antonio's in-laws were so friendly and accommodating even though our Spanish is frankly terrible.
The four of us were able to live comfortably with two of us sharing a bedroom and the other two sharing a futon. The hosts were kind enough to leave towels, blankets, toilet paper, shampoo, and soap for us. The WiFi was great!
I would highly recommend staying here. Karen is a great host and gave us many recommendations on things to eat and see in the city. She was very accessible via the AirBnb app even though she was not in the country at the time.
Fantastic apartment in Arequipa with amazing views and very quiet neighborhood. About 30 mins walk to Plaza de Arms. The apartment felt comfortable, roomy and clean. The hosts were very accommodating with changes in our itinerary and were available via the phone when needed. We did have a bit of a language barrier as the local family members did not speak English and we did not really speak Spanish but we managed to communicate. Would have loved to stay longer if we had more time!
Karen and Antonio were quick to respond to my request and answer all of my questions. They were very accommodating allowing us to leave our baggage at their place until check-in time. They provided great information about the area. Did not get a chance to meet them in person but their family lives in the same building and met with us. And their family treated us immediately as family and were the most gracious hosts.
The Neighborhood was great! Just a short cheap taxi cab away from Plaza de Armas. The place was very charming and exactly as described. We were greeted by Fannie who escorted us to the apartment and made us feel warm and comfortable. There was plenty of hot water for warm, comfortable showers. The highlight, so far, was our ability to flush our toilet paper in the toilet and not place it in a can next to the toilet. Sounds like a smmall comfort, but the reader of this review will be changing their tune once the effects of altitude sickness set in!!!!

About the Host, Karen And Antonio
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
