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!!!!
The place was great! We had a good time and the place was very comfortable. Amazing views and very close to both plazas. I would stay there again. The neighbors were great and even lent us some kitchen supplies when we were in need.
nous avons contacté karen le matin, et une heure plus tard nous avons été très bien accueillis par fanny, une charmante dame! l'appartement est magnifique, correspond exactement aux photos et description.Nous avons pleinement profité de la terrasse et le quartier de yanahuara est très tranquille et agréable: 20 mn a pied du centre ville.
nous avons passé 3 jours extraordinaires a Arequipa et recommandons vivement cet appartement!
This apartment is absolutely stunning! We loved how it was designed and decorated, and the outside porch was a great place to drink your tea while looking out at the beautiful volcano Misti. Karen and Antonio were incredibly helpful. In fact, Karen was in labor during our stay, yet still took the time to send us a message and make sure we have everything we need!! Her mother-in-law was the one to let us in the apartment and she was a very sweet woman who made sure we had everything. I wish I could stay longer in this apartment!

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
