About the Host, Isabel
Hola and thanks for visiting!!
We are originally from Lima, Peru, and moved to the US many years ago, with our children.
In Lima, Peru:
We own an apartment and roof top studio in Miraflores, Lima, Peru. Through airbnb we rent two spaces:
- A rooftop studio, located on the 3rd level of our apartment in Miraflores,
See this listing at https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/393857, and
- A private room with bath in the 2nd floor of our home.
Locally the main contact is my dad, Mr. Gustavo, although all coordinations and payments should be done with me online through airbnb or email.
Before writing to me, please make sure you have a good detailed profile and good pictures where I can see clearly who I am talking to. DO NOT WRITE TO ME until you have pictures in your profile section. We need to feel comfortable with our guests before welcoming in to our home. This means that not only in your message to me, I would like to see your information in your permanent profile. A detailed description would tell me at least:
a. Tell me who you are, name and last name, what you like to do, what do you do for a living
b. Tell me about your visit: vacation, study, work, if work or study tell me where you will work or study
c. Tell me who you come with, name and last name
d. Later on I will need exact arrival time so we can be ready for you

f. First time in Peru? friends/family in Peru, do you speak Spanish
Also, kindly refrain from asking to to see the place before confirming. This is why there is a description of the space, and a system to make questions, and lots of pictures. In addition, please read the reviews. I can accept a reservation from somebody else as soon as I get their payment.
Please note that to welcome you into our home we need to know a little about you. When you are home, you are family. My father, Gustavo, is your host in Lima, and I normally tell him about our visitors so he knows about you before you arrive. He understands a little of English, and my sister Gloria, who lives in Lima, will help with communications if necessary, she is fully bilingual. (see their pictures in the Profile pictures).
When Gustavo is in good health he will be there for you most of the time. I am your main contact online. By email, (website hidden) or phone. If I need to help you I will reach you. Together we will make sure you have a good stay. We are family-oriented, friendly people, open to other cultures and to share our own.
