Pros: Jose was a great host! He was very responsive and helpful and arranged a ride from the airport for us. We ran out of toilet paper in the bathroom during our stay and he arranged for more to be brought over the same day. Cons: The street that the apartment is on is very small but very, very noisy, especially at night. So if you are a light sleeper this may not be the apartment for you. The location is also a little further away from Plaza de Armas and even Plaza de Yanahuara than other locations in Yanahuara I have stayed at. We also followed the instructions of the shower that were given to us but never got hot water during the 3 days we were there. (I lived in Peru so I know how to work showers with a water heater and this one didn't work, at least not while we were there). Lastly, I found ants in my bed every night, which was not pleasant at all.

Response from Jose:
This apartment has been operating in Airbnb for more than 10 years and it has very good reviews (it is excellent value for money!). The apartment has two bedrooms. One room is facing the street and the other is in the back. The room that is in the back is quite and a good sleep is guaranteed. The room facing the street could be a bit unpleasant because it is possible to hear when a car drives through (but, there are not many cars at night since it is a small street). For this reason this apartment is priced as a single bedroom apartment. The apartment is large, well equipped, well illuminated, well decorated and well maintained (as you can see in the pictures), and yet at a very low price. It is unfortunate that Elizabeth didn't got hot water, But, it she had contacted me reporting the problem, I would have had it fixed immediately. The apartment is located 6 minutes walk to plaza de Yanahura, it is located right between plaza de Yanahura and Plaza de Cayma. Regarding the presence of ants, it is first time I get such a comment (in 10 years operating this apartment). It is possible that some food dropped on the floor was left there unnoticed. I have given instruction to move the beds around for a thorough cleaning.

We had a perfect stay in the apartment. It is pretty big for 2 people, it was good feeling at "home". It is a bit out of the center but in a very safe neighborhood and it wasn't a problem for us. The bed was very comfy, internet worked great and it was nice to have a kitchen. The place is full of light, one side in the morning, the other in the afternoon. Also great to be able to use the washing machine ! Maria and Jose were both available to answer our questions, thank you very much !

As I'm not a big fan of staying in the center of the city, I chose Jose's apartment, hoping it will be a convenient base to discover Arequipa. And it was, indeed: safe neighbourhood, peaceful, narrow streets that bring you to the Plaza de Armas, accurate description, good wifi, smooth communication with Jose. Adding the fair price I think it's the best place to stay (if you don't insist in getting down from your room directly into Plaza de Armas). Perfectly suited for a family. We were two adults and two kids aged 6 and 7 and felt excelent.

Jose's place was great. The apartment was clean, spacious and in a great location with many fine restaurants nearby. There was lots of places to chill within walking distance like Plaza de Yanahuara and Plaza de Cayma. Thanks to Maria for booking a taxi for us to the bus station.

My name is Jose and I live in Australia. I have traveled with my family several times and I khow how convenient it is to arrive into a place where you have all the basics (kitchen, fridge, furnitures, cutlery, appliances, washing machine, linen, etc). It is for this reason that together with my relatives living in Arequipa (Peru) we have created "Jabca Apartments", you can search for us on the internet. Our apartments are fully furnished and with all the basic services, including wireless internet, cable tv, and in some cases with landline phones.

In Arequipa, my aunt Maria will make sure that everything is perfect during your stay in Arequipa.

We have apartments perfect for executives that need to stay a day or several weeks in Arequipa, for couples seeking a comfortable and romantic apartment, and especially appealing to families traveling with children, grandparents, etc. It is also appealing if there are two families travelling together, we have an apartment with a room with bunk beds (especial for kids), and two rooms with ensuites.

We have apartments with beds for up to 9 people.

Our apartments are new and modern buildings that are located in traditional neighbourhoods of Arequipa, like Cayma and Cerro Colorado. Our guests experience the feeling of what it is living in a traditional neighborhood of Arequipa and interact with friendly neighbours.
