About this listing
We have a large 1950ish, 2 story, 10 bedroom, 5 bathroom home.
This room has two twin beds and accommodates 2 people comfortably. We have antique furniture and like to think that it gives the feeling of home which you cant get in a hotel. There are four drawers in the dresser to store your belongings as well as closet space.
*Please note: We change and launder our comforters frequently so you may have a different design than pictured.
**IF THIS ROOM IS NOT AVAILABLE OR YOU NEED MORE ROOMS TO ACCOMODATE MORE PEOPLE DURING THE TIME FRAME YOU NEED, WE HAVE 3 OTHER ROOMS :)
See: "Home Sweet Home", "Ample&Spacious", or "Simply Suffice".
Besides your room and shared bathroom, guests will have access to THE PARLOR and THE PATIO "Charito". Wifi can be accessed in your room but is strongest in the parlor and the parlor doors can be closed if privacy is needed. No other rooms are permitted for guest use.
There is a large shared bathroom (with 1 or 2 other people). Sometimes you may be lucky enough to have it to yourself if the other room remains vacant.
Guests who are bringing their laptop may access Wifi in the parlor 24/7. If you are not bringing your laptop, you may use the internet cabin that is a short 2 minute walk from our home.
It is best to click on the "Amenities" tab so you know just exactly what we do and do not offer.
Interaction with Guests
We offer basic accomodations at very reasonable rates for our guests who are looking for a safe place to shower and sleep so that they may spend the rest of their time getting to know Lima. We do our very best to give you a warm welcome and make you feel comfortable in our home during your stay.
We are in and out of our home on a regular basis but Antonio is very good about checking in on guests often to make sure your stay is going well and to ask if there are any questions. If there is anything we forget or don't think about, please do not hesitate to ask!
We live in a safe neighborhood called Barrio Medico. It is located right on the border of the Miraflores/Surquillo District. We are closest to Angamos and Tomas Marsano (cuadra 17 Angamos) and Roca Y Bologna and Tomas Marsano (cuadra 9 Roca y Bologna).
Staying with us you will experience two worlds. One of locals enjoying the same malls, shops, markets, parks and walks that we do and the other being close enough to enjoy many tourist areas as well. THE HEART OF MIRAFLORES (PARQUE KENNEDY) IS A 25 MINUTE WALK FROM OUR HOME. If you do not like to walk, it is only about a 5 minute taxi ride away for about 6-7 Peruvian soles which is less than 2 Euros or $2.50 USD, VERY CHEAP :)
Barranco is about a 10 minute taxi ride and Central Lima is about 20-25 minutes. If you are not in a hurry and want to save money, there is always the option of taking a bus too :)
SAN ISIDRO and SAN BORJA are to the north
MIRAFLORES is to the south and west
SURCO is to the east
Taxi's are easily accessible right outside our front door and the nearest bus stop is about a 5 minute walk from our home.
For your convenience, we do offer transportation from the airport for a fee. Please inquire.

make sure faucets are turned off all the way.
If you have to share the bathroom, PLEASE REMEMBER TO CLEAN UP AFTER YOURSELF. Please do not use bath towels to clean up spills on the floor, dye your hair, or remove make up. The stains from the floor wax and dye will not come out of them. Please ask for a mop to clean up spills.

Make sure to close door to entrance of the house all the way.
If you lose our keys we have to change our locks. For this reason, there would be a $10 USD fee for lost keys
We appreciate and thank you in advance for respecting our rules :)
Staying at Antonios place was a fantastic experience for us. After a day exploring the city it is so nice to come back to a place which feels like home. The room is great, clean, the beds are so comfy and the blankets are super warm. It's a good size too. We walked everywhere from here apart from downtown when we got the bus. Antonio provided us with so much information and even drew is a map. He also booked us some bus tickets to travel north. There is a mall super close which has different food options and a large supermarket. 20 mins walk and you can access all restaurants in Miraflores. Neighbourhood felt very safe to us. This place comes highly recommended from us.
Antonio was very helpful and informative. The location is a good distance between Mirraflores and Baranco and taxis run along the street often. The room was simple but comfortable. Well worth the price.
Antonio was welcoming and helped us get around town and let us leave our luggage in the house after check out. His family was very lively, we only wish we could have met his wife.
The room looked better in the photos than it did in reality. It's in need of some upkeep — mostly paint that's peeling on the ceiling. The bathroom could need more attention as well.
The location is good, walking distance from a market and a shopping mall that has a grocery store.
Antonio es atento y te informa de todo lo que necesitas, en casa te sientes comodo y libre. El barrio es tranquilo y con un ricoooo restaurante "el tiburon" al lado. Gracias.
We had a good exp at Antonio's place! Nothing much to say about the room and the house in general, it is in a safe neighborhood, with plenty of taxis passing near by. Then, Antonio explains us everything (accomodities, how to go there or there, taxis prices, places you must see, etc, etc). He and his family were very pleasant and made us feel comfortable!
This was a lovely place to spend a few days in Lima. Antonio was very attentive if we needed anything and was very informational about where to go and where to eat. The location is in a nice quiet area and is easy to get around. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come back again.
Antonio很好 才到就给你画了一张地图。有热水。虽然是share room但是在这里留下了一段很好的回忆。离shopping mall只有五分钟的路程很方便。在那里可以办电话卡。总的来说 性价比高。如果还有机会我还会住在这里的。

About the Host, Antonio
Hello and welcome!
A little bit about us...
I was born and raised in Lima, Peru. I moved to the United States when I was 16, learned English and graduated from Clovis High School in Fresno, California and then moved to Sacramento. After living in the United States for 22 years I wanted to move back to Peru with my family (2011) to share my culture, language and country with my children and wife. I speak both Spanish and English fluently.
Tina, was born in Concord, Massachusetts and moved to the Sacramento area in California when she was a child. She went to American River College and has an A.S. Degree. She speaks English and some Spanish.
We have been married for 17 years and have 4 children that keep us busy! My mother, Senora Carmen also lives here. If you are in the bottom part of the house, you will see her cooking in the kitchen most days :)
Tina works full time and also helps me with answering my mesages for airbnb. When she is not working she is taking care of the house and children. As a result of her full schedule, you probably won't see much of her if you get to meet her.
Hosting is my full time job. I have been working with tourists for a little more than three years now. I do not just hand you the keys and leave you alone. I spend a lot of time with my guests, making sure they are comfortable, answer any questions that they have, and giving some suggestions along the way. I do my best to make sure your experience in Lima is a nice one.
