Dear Cecilia, my family and I want to thank you for the warm welcome, details and fine accommodations. We spent a wonderful week in your beautiful apartment. It was immaculately clean, very well equipped, spacious and very well located. We had everything walking distance, fine restaurants, shopping, church, supermarket. I will recommend your place to my friends and family visiting Peru. Thanks again for everything. Hope to see you soon. Regards, Blanca
Five stars all around. Ceci and Harry were incomparable hosts, providing me with so many nice things that it was truly an embarrassment of riches. I don't want to leave an expectation of an impossible standard, but suffice to say that during my stay of six weeks, I was very happy. In particular, I enjoyed when they invited me to have a drink at the end of the day on their patio.
The room was exactly what I expected -- the pictures in airbnb do it justice. As well, the other descriptions, such as being able to eat off of the floor (!!) are exactly right. The apartment was immaculate.
The neighborhood was very nice. Shopping was close by. It is also close to the US embassy, so I was able to walk to work each day. The alternative, staying in the Polo ApartHotel, pales in comparison to Ceci and Harry's place and is four times as expensive!
Thanks Donald for your words, we are so please you enjoyed to stay with us as we enjoyed your company and interesting conversations about your travels and experience around the world. For us was important that you feel a little like to be in home.
You are welcome anytime you visit Lima and thank you again for treat our home with respect and care.
Best wishes for you and your family.
This apartment is spectacular! Our family has rented on a short term basis many times through the years and we have concluded that the most important factor when considering a rental of this type is who owns the property. The property will be a direct reflection of the owners and their desire to present a clean, nicely furnished, properly maintained facility. The owners of this property, Harry and Ceci, went out of their way to make sure all of our needs were taken care of. The apartment is large and has three bedrooms, three full bathrooms and guest bathroom. It was so clean you could eat off the floors. The eat-in kitchen was well supplied not only with cooking and eating utensils, but also with enough food supplies such as milk, water, coffee, butter, salt and pepper, etc. to get you started. The bathrooms were supplied with soap, toilet paper, towels, etc. There is even a little exercise room with a stationary bike and a rowing machine. Each of the bedrooms has huge closet space.
The best part of the apartment was the feeling of home. Each time we returned we had the feeling we were returning to a home versus a sterile hotel room. A family of 4 to 6 could definitely stay there for a long time, very comfortably. The owners have decorated the apartment very tastefully and have given great thought to color and style. The wireless internet worked flawlessly, as did the the flat screen TV. There is also a DVD player. The windows in the apartment are huge, giving lots of light and wonderful airflow.
The apartment's location is another advantage. It is situated in a residential area, but is an easy walk to everything that's needed: shops, supermarkets, many good restaurants, etc. Jockey Plaza, a very large shopping mall, is a short taxi ride away. The Gold Museum is a short walk. The U.S. Embassy is also within walking distance.
The owners, Harry and Ceci, live in the apartment above and are more than willing to help in any way they can. They are very personable and generous and will go out of their way to help. If this is one's first time to Lima this is important because Lima has it's own personality and customs that sometimes confuse first time visitors. It was comforting to know there were people close by we could trust.
Quite frankly, we hated to leave and wish we could have stayed longer.
Dear Peter and Luz, we are so please you both enjoyed to stay with us, as we enjoyed sharing our home with you too. We had interesting and very deep conversations about so many things. I really apreciate those moments. Thanks so much for your words and review, Peter and Luz, you are truly very kind persons. For us is very important that our guests feel in home otherwise what would the point be, and of course to have the oportunity to make friends and meet interesting people like you. We both look forward to your next visit to Lima and to have the chance to share more interesting conversations about our individual experiences around the world.
Wish you a Merry Christmas and a excellent New Year!
Ceci and family
My family and I would like to thank Cecilia for the excellent hospitality and attention she had toward us during our stay at her apartment. It was very comfy, spacious, clean, safe and in a great location with easy access to different interesting places in Lima. Now we know that every vacation in Lima we will choose this place again without a doubt. Thank you very much Cecilia. Hilda & Family
My children and I were warmly welcomed to the apartment by our lovely, gracious, charming host and her husband. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome including meeting me at the airport, providing pies for the apartment, some start up food and supplies for the bathroom and laundry. We chatted regularly and I know that the children really enjoyed their company and I did as well.
The apartment itself is fantastic and warm. My daughter and son said "Dad, this place is better than the other four places we have stayed in while in Lima. It feels comfortable and like a home with the decorations and furnishings." Its in a great location for our needs. A few blocks from a large grocery store and several local shops, two bakeries, a nice Japanese restaurant, and fast food (if that's your thing). The Gold Museum is nearby. It was ideal for us a family living and going to school in Lima.
I will come back but more for the feeling of a family than the apartment, which in itself would be more than enough reason to return. What a treat.
