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 note that smoking is only permitted outside on the terrace and not in the rooms
Positives: Robert was great. He was attentive and very nice. He was happy to give us suggestions. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The rooftop terrace is really nice with fantastic views of the mountains surrounding Arequipa.
Negatives: Everyday we were there (3 days) there were multiple church services projected over a loudspeaker that was noisy.
Had a wonderful experience staying here... host was most helpful and accommodating. The location simply cannot be beat. It was clean, quiet and just what we were looking for to kick off our Peru trip. Morning tea on the terrace was a highlight for us!
My husband and I arrived at 6am and were greeted with smiles and giggles. The room was clean and provided with extra blankets in case the night was chilly. The bathroom was shared and maintained very cleanly. We did not cook any meals, but a nice kitchen is available. The roof terrace provides beautiful views. We felt extremely safe and very close to the center of the historical district. There were tons of restaurants, cafés and bars that were delicious and easy to find. Overall, we definetly recommend this place and hope to return in the future.
We enjoyed staying here. Robert greeted us at the door when we arrived and he was very helpful during our stay. He made us feel at home. He also helped us to get a taxi to the airport at 4 am in the morning. There was a riot when we were in Arequipa and staying heremade us feel very safe. I would recommend this place to anyone who are planning to visit the beautiful Arequipa. The location is vey close to Plaza de Armas and surronded by wonderful restaurants and coffee shop.
Perfect Airbnb experience. My travel companion & I were hosted by Gawain's brother, Robert. Robert was a wonderful host - very friendly and helpful.
The setup is excellent - you have access to a full kitchen, a washing machine and of course, the terrace - perfect for drying laundry or just relaxing and enjoying the beautiful views of nearby volcanoes.
The property is really cool - one of the nicest places on the street, plants & flowers throughout, spacious rooms, a huge bathroom. Everything is clean and well-maintained.
The area is beautiful and safe. Amenities on your doorstep in every direction and only a 5-10 min stroll to top cafes, restaurants & historical attractions.
Wonderful experience, recommended to anyone visiting Arequipa.
Un mes completo en Arequipa en una casa realmente agradable y muy bien administrada. Me encanto todo: la tranquilidad, el buen gusto, sencilla y bonita la casa, muchisimas plantas que son imortantes en una ciudad en medio del desierto, muy limpio siempre, Robert que es una persona muy especial, amable y bien organizado. Es una casa de amistad en el mejor sentido de la palabra. Me ofrecia la privacidad y tranquilidad que necesitaba pero tambien la oportunidad de compartir buenos momentos con otras personas. Hay suficiente espacio para todos. el desayuno en la terazza con vista a los volcanes era maravilloso; siempre voy a querer regresar!
