We have done our best to provide the place with all you might need. If you require an item, or have problems with one, please let us know immediately to do something about it--guest satisfaction is our main concern.
Interaction with guests
We interact the most when you arrive: to show you around the apartment, discuss the neighborhood, give advice, answer concerns. Guests are usually limited on time, and we respect that. If you are willing to have a chat, though, we are available. Email through Airbnb, mobile phone calls, sms, are quick ways to communicate with me. I have a mobile phone to lend you for free: it can be loaded with a minimum of S/ 3.00 PEN at most grocery stores and supermarkets.
Other things to note
"RESERVATION" and "DESCRIPTION." Please read them.
Bring all, or part, of the RESERVATION along with you: to have our complete address and specific directions at your fingertips to give the taxi driver; our mobile number and email address, Airbnb numbers, and other details. In case you need to make an urgent call, taxi drivers have a mobile phone from which you can make a free call.
The DESCRIPTION will give you a pretty good idea of what, where, and how. If you need to, we can go over it once you are here, too. There is a printed copy of the "Description" in the desk drawer. And, please check the internet to find useful info on any subject about Peru.
AIRPORT. It is the most modern in South America, and about a 30-minute ride to our place. We recommend you take a registered taxi (like Taxi Green) from the counter/desk inside the airport. Find their office, and a money exchange booth, on your way out--after luggage pick-up. No matter what time it is, pay S/ 60.00 PEN / $20.00 USD--have exact amount ready, and no tipping (don't spoil drivers, please). We do tip at restaurants though, 10% if not included on the bill--ask at the front desk or check the bill yourself (don't trust the waiter for this).
LATE NIGHT ARRIVAL. If you'll arrive at the apartment past 12 am and are hungry, see that you eat-in or buy to-go at the airport food-court on the second floor--once you're in the taxi, don't stop on your way.
CHECK IN / CHECK OUT. To avoid overlapping, we have a fixed schedule now; nevertheless, we can adapt to your needs or keep your luggage until the place is ready.
WEATHER. Opposite to the Northern Hemisphere. In general, we say that there are only two seasons in Lima: summer and winter; spring and fall go by unnoticed.
- February: Carnival celebrations in the majority of the Regions; famous ones are those in Cajamarca, Cajamarca Region (Feb 6-10); Rioja, San Martin Region (Feb 20-25); Ayacucho, Ayacucho Region (Feb 6-10); Puno, Puno Region (Feb 6-15).
- March/April: Holy Week celebrations in all the Regions (the religious and the mundane intertwine).
- April-November: better months for the Inca Trail Hike, 2- and 4-day tours; Cuzco, Cuzco Region.
- June 26: Inti Raymi Festival of the Sun; Cuzco, Cuzco Region.
- July-August: "Feria del Hogar"; Chorrillos District, Lima Region--to be confirmed.
- July 28 (and 29): Independence Day(s)--Presidential Speech; Military Display; and a variety of activities, such as fairs of every kind, circuses, tours--in several districts of Lima and in the rest of the country.
- September: Mistura Peruvian Food Fair, Costa Verde, Magdalena District, Lima Region--opportunity to taste the vast assortment of Peruvian food and drink, and to buy Peruvian produce and products.
We'd be more than grateful if you please keep in mind that:
- Smoking, pets, parties and overnight visitors are not allowed.
- Wet towels and wet clothing are hung to dry--we provide a rack.
- To keep surfaces free of mars, use mats (on table) or tray (on top of refrigerator) for glasses and bottles.
- Line trash cans with plastic bags; find in bottom drawer in kitchen.
- No solids go through kitchen sink, use trash can--no garbage disposals in the country.
- No solids go through toilet, use trash can--paper and others don't go through the pipes.
- Garbage truck passes by everyday at 8 pm; we get a ticket if garbage bag is out at other times. If you are not going to be there by then, throw smaller bags into green container at the corner at any time.
THANK YOU FOR CARING!
I am Isabel and lucky to live in Miraflores, one of the prettiest, safest, and most nearly international city in Lima. I have an apartment with a room, or two, that you can enjoy while visiting with us. I like to help people, care about their being comfortable, and see that they enjoy a happy stay.
I am a retired teacher--and amateur tennis player--and, in general, I like to stay at home. Once in a while, though, I enjoy walking around the commercial areas in Miraflores, San Isidro, Surco; visit the malls and do a little shopping; enjoy lunch at different restaurants (peruvian, italian and chinese are among my favourites); ride along the promenades; travel the world. I also enjoy art, decoration, and architecture: at the present moment, I am helping an aunt with the subdivision of a large house into four smaller apartments.
I have visited most of the countries in South America; lived in the States for about six years; visited Canada; and, adding all months up, lived in London, England, for about a year. I have also traveled around Continental and Eastern Europe, including Egypt. Recently I had the opportunity to visit Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and India. Still moving East.... Would like to visit China, Japan, Russia, Australia and some islands in-between.
I stay informed by reading articles in the internet, listening to the radio, watching the news, sending and receiving emails. Other activities I spend time with is visiting family and friends, reading a borrowed magazine or book, listening to oldies, and, lately, keeping the apartment in tip-top condition.
Traveling around has helped me realize the importance of having a nice, clean, fresh room to rest in after 'a hard day´s day.'
