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.
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 :-)
This was a great place to stay in Arequipa. A few blocks off the Plaza - very easy walk to several great restaurants and near the Convent. We stayed two nights here with Robert as our host.
We had an early flight to Cusco from Arequipa and were concerned about hiring a cab off the street at 6:30am, but did not know enough spanish to call a company ahead of time. Robert ordered a cab for us and even got up early to make sure we were taken care of.
We were able to do a quick load of laundry at the house and hang things to dry on the lovely rooftop terrace. I would definitely recommend this as a place to stay! Thank you, Gawain!
My two nights stay at Gawain was great, Gawain gave all the information necessary before my arrival. I would like to thank again Roberto again for waiting for me until 2.00am as my coah was late. Roberto is extremely friendlyand helpful and he makes you feeling welcome whatever time of the day.
The accommodation is well situated with the town centre, great facilities (Kitchen, bathroom); the shower is brilliant; so if you are looking somewhere with a good shower, it is here, it is in a quiet area. Be comfortable and room very spacious. Great view on the roof.
