We try to promote a relaxed friendly attitude, good for studying, full use of all amenities, some shared meals, respectful of other guests. We like to have fun but its not a party house. Please remember that smoking is only permitted outside on the terrace and not in the rooms. Thanks, Gaby and Gawain
Robert was so welcoming, friendly, and helpful upon arrival and throughout our whole stay. The kitchen and terrace were a great bonus. The rooms and common areas were super clean and it was in a perfect location. Thanks so much! We hope to return soon!
We didn't meet Gawain but his place was great! Comfortable, quiet and close to the center. We stayed longer than planned, very nice place.
Such a great place to stay in Arequipa! Great location, just a short walk to the Plaza de Armas, great restaurants, and museums. A very safe neighbourhood, and a secure home. It was so amazing to eat breakfast every morning on the rooftop with two volcanos for company! Robert was so helpful and kept everything so clean.
Enjoyed my stay in Arequipa! Gawain's place is central without being in the midst of the chaos. Very safe and has all the necessary amenities. Very easy to get in touch with as well! Would deifnitely recommend.
We had a great time in Arequipa. Gawins brother in law Roberto was there to help us. Roberto was by far our favorite airbnb host of our 2.5 month trip this far. Roberto helped us find things to do in Arequipa and was always there to help us when needed. I really enjoyed practicing my spanish with Roberto. I would highly recommend this host. The patio is amazing place to hang out!
An EXCELLENT place to stay if you're visiting Arequipa:
- Robert, who runs the house, is really friendly, a great source of information and really keeps the place in excellent condition.
- The kitchen is well stocked with really good cooking utensils (there is even a water filter on the tap so you can drink the tap water).
- The beds are lovely and warm.
- Gaiwan and Gaby answered all my questions before I even asked. They were so helpful and informative.
- The terrace is beautiful!
- The house is only 2 minutes walk from some great stuff and is really secure.
Thank you very much to Robert, Gaiwan and Gaby. We had a lovely time here :-)
Great spot in the historic center of Arequipa. Clean. Safe. Friendly. Would stay again.
