About this listing
I rent 4 of the 10 rooms in my comfortable 1950ish home. I take care in making sure my guests enjoy their time in Lima and tell you everything you need to know. Forget the hotels and tour guides. Come for a unique experience. Look for us on the web!
This room is spacious and has a double size bed, dresser, nightstand, closet, ceiling fan and accommodates 2 people comfortably. The room and bathroom are separated from the rest of the family and other guests. A plus if you appreciate privacy. :)
* PLEASE NOTE:
- Small changes are made sometimes to improve the look of the room when needed, i.e., changing out comforters to be washed and some designs/decorations to replace old or broken items.
-For stays that are less than the minimum usually required, please inquire, sometimes exceptions can be made when there are openings.
-If this room is not available, please send a message inquiring, there may be other rooms that might be open/available .
The private bathroom is not in the room, but is right next to it.
Guests who are bringing their laptop may access internet in my home 24/7. If you are not bringing your laptop, you may use the internet cabin that is a short 2 minute walk from my home.
Please see "Amenities" to find out what I do and do not offer.
Interaction with Guests
I offer basic accomodations at very reasonable rates for my guests who are looking for a safe, friendly, and comfortable place to shower and sleep so that they may spend the rest of their time getting to know Lima. I do my very best to give you a warm welcome and make you feel comfortable in my home during your stay.
I am in and out of my home on a regular basis but very good about checking in on guests often to make sure your stay is going well and to ask if there are any questions. If there is anything I forget or don't think about, please do not hesitate to ask! I can always be reached by messaging via Airbnb.
My neighborhood, Barrio Medico, is considered a safe, upscale place with a higher standard of living, as it borders the Miraflores District/Surquillo District.
I am closest to Angamos/Tomas Marsano (cuadra 17 Angamos) in Surquillo and Roca Y Bologna/Tomas Marsano (cuadra 9 Roca y Bologna) in Miraflores.
Staying with me you will experience two worlds. One of locals, enjoying the same malls, shops, markets, parks and walks that I do and the other being close enough to enjoy many tourist areas as well. The heart of Miraflores (Parque Kennedy) is a nice 25 minute walk. If you do not like to walk, it is only about a 5 minute taxi ride for about 6-7 Peruvian soles, which is less than 2 Euros or $2.50 USD, VERY CHEAP :)
Barranco is about a 10 minute taxi ride and Central Lima is about 20-25 minutes. If you are not in a hurry and want to save money, there is always the option of taking a bus too :)
SAN ISIDRO and SAN BORJA are to the north
MIRAFLORES is to the south and west
SURCO is to the east
Taxi's are easily accessible right outside the front door of my home.The nearest bus stop is about a 5 minute walk from my home.
For your safety and convenience, I offer taxi services to and from the airport for an additional fee each way. The drivers that work for me are people that I personally know and trust. If you would like for me to arrange one of my taxi's for your arrival (or departure), upon reserving, please provide your complete flight details (airline company, flight #, arrival/departure time, and where the plane will be flying from/to).
