Casa De Amistad-Lovely house share with amazing terrace and views in beautiful San Lazaro, the historic center of Arequipa. Spacious, filled with lots of air and sunlight, expansive roof-top garden terrace with amazing views, large fully furnished bedrooms, one with balcony.

There are 2 gorgeous bedrooms with new mattresses and bedding, 32" 1020P TV/monitor, desk, armoire closet and balcony. The house has 24-hour hot water, wireless high speed internet, cable TV and a clothes washing machine. The bright clean kitchen has a stainless steel stove, microwave, water filter, oven, and full utensils for a cook’s delight. The spacious roof-top terrace offers stunning volcano views and is perfect for taking sun, or reading, or enjoying a meal under the shade canopy. The abundant plants and off-street location provide a beautiful, quiet, and convenient living style.

I'm originally from California, USA and my wife is from Moquegua, Peru. We're looking for nice person or couple who want a quiet and friendly place to call home. This would be a perfect opportunity for a traveler(s) or volunteer(s) looking for a comfortable, clean and historic place where you can easily walk to the Plaza de Armas and the city center.

Note: We are within 6 blocks of the Plaza de Armas and the Mercado San Camilo, the famous food market which occupies an entire block, and within 3 blocks of El Super, a modern grocery store. You have everything you need right here so you won't need a taxi or bus to get around.

Unfortunately I was sick in this part of my trip, but Gawain's place had good wifi and comfy beds. It was also close to the main square, grocery stores, pharmacies and a clinic.

Gawain's place is in a perfect location. Very close to downtown/restaurants/sites, but on a quieter street so you can easily relax when needed. The roof terrace was a wonderful plus! Robert was very helpful with recommendations and arranging taxis etc.

Loved getting to stay here. While teaching English in AQP, I spent two months total here and absolutely loved it. It's always kept clean, the location is great, and Robert/Gawain/ and Veronica couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. You can't go wrong here!

The location of this AirBnB could not be better. It's so close to great restaurants and bars, and not too far of a walk to the main plaza. Communication with Gawain was seamless, and Robert was very helpful when we arrived. The pictures are very accurate. I would highly recommend this AirBnB!

This place is exactly what the description says. Great location, wonderful hosts, a lovely house and room, and a very comfortable place to stay. Gaby and Robert were extremely helpful with respect to any questions. I stayed here for a little over two weeks and wouldn't hesitate to stay again while in Arequipa.

We were looking for a comfortable home-like setting to cook a thanksgiving dinner while we were miles from our families. Although Gawain was in California, Gaby and Robert accommodated our every need. Their home was beautiful and perfectly clean. The bedroom was spacious and the bed was the most comfortable I've slept in in months. We felt incredibly welcomed in their home. We even had the privilege to meet Gaby and Gawain's twins, two adorable almost 2 year old girls who only added to the hospitality. We can't thank you enough for making our experience everything we wanted it to be (and more)
