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.

A lovely place in the heart of Arequipa! We were warmly welcomed and taken care. I'd highly recommend this place for a couple of days to really get to know the beautiful city too.

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!

One of my favourite places I've stayed in over 8 months in South America. I was here for two weeks and stayed in both rooms, they are clean, comfortable, bright and airy. The flat has lots of space, a well equipped kitchen and a lovely rooftop terraces. Roberto who looks after the flat is lovely, both friendly and helpful and was willing to let me use him as Spanish practice despite speaking excellent English. Location is perfect, very central but set back from the street so zero traffic noise. Highly recommended!

We found Gawain's place a very good and secure place to stay in easy walking distance from excellent restaurants, central Plaza, market, and monastery etc.The rooftop garden is a lovely place to go and have breakfast or drinks with El Misti volcano as a backdrop. Although Gawain was away, his brother in law Robert was helpful to us. We were quite touched that Robert not only arranged for our 2.30 am taxi to the bus station, but got up himself at that time to see us safely away.
