About This Listing
In a three-story building we rent a beautiful apartment with kitchen, large bedroom, ample living room with fine furniture and a writers' corner.This apartment is located in the second floor (first floor US & Europe) no lift available.
Big windows with view over a little park and the Bridge of Sighs, in a green and quiet street in the heart of Barranco, near restaurants and cafes.
The apartment is in the heart of Barranco two steps from maybe the nicest street of Lima, an old street leading to the beaches in just few meters, in the evening and excellent place to take a pisco sour or a meal in the different restaurant found there.
Less than 100 meters away is the main square in Barranco with the cathedral, the city hall and the library.
We advise you not to miss a visit to the Pedro de Osma Museum and Gallery of Mario Testino located a few meters from the square.
This district is also rich in culture and gastronomy. And only 30 min. far from Lima colonial center by public transportation.
At the side of the house there is an excellent cafe with outdoor patio where you can enjoy tea and coffee and delicious vegetarian dishes and desserts. Weekly price 600USD, two weeks 1000USD, three weeks 1500USD, one month 1800USD.

Barranco is a great neighborhood. Very picturesque, cool artsy boutiques, great coffee shops (11:11), good spots for having cocktails and drinks. The food options seem to be better in other parts of the city, but we did find a few cevicherias near Plaza Butters that were authentic and amazing. Carmen's tips were very good on the map that she provides. The apartment is in a fabulous location. Beautiful street and great view over the puente de los suspiros. It's noisy because the major avenue is right there and the taxis and buses honk a lot. But we got used to it. Carmen and Francesco were great about getting back to us quickly with any questions we had. All in all, a good experience.
The apartment itself is wonderful, and in a really great area of Barranco. A five minute walk down to the ocean for nice walks, and lots of shops and restaurants within mere steps. I was very, very happy here for the two weeks I spent in the apartment. Also, Francesco and Carmen are wonderful hosts; some of the best I have encountered on airbnb. They gave me lots of great info about the area, and even helped me find a clinic when I had a random medical problem pop up. Only good things to say about these two. I was so happy staying with them, in fact, that I stayed with them at Casa Nuestra when I got back to Lima (which is also lovely).
It was an awesome location! We could walk to the Bridge of Sighs in 2 minutes and it was very easy to walk to all of the bars, restaurants, museums and beach in Barranco. Nothing was really more than 15 minutes away by foot. Carmen and Francesco were very responsive any time we had a question. Additionally, the apartment is right next door to La Bodega Verde...you must check out their teas, breakfast and the lucama milkshake was the best! We went there several mornings for tea/coffee before heading out for the day. Also enjoyed drinks at Ayahuasca, sandwiches at El Chinito, the art at MATE and Pedro de Osma, (email hidden) Company, and those are just a few places! There is so much to do and you can walk to all of it from the apartment. Along with the great location comes a lot of noise from the street traffic. Not a complaint by any means, as we knew we would be staying at a very busy intersection in Barranco. We just want to make others aware. We slept with ear plugs and had no problems getting a great sleep. Thank you so much!
Francesco hat uns mitten in der Nacht empfangen und war überaus freundlich. Obwohl wir uns in Barranco bereits auskannten, hat uns seine Umgebungskarte mit wertvollen Insider-Tipps sehr geholfen. Die Unterkunft war genauso extravagant, wie wir sie uns vorgestellt haben. Es ist toll, dass man Barrancos pulsierendes Leben hautnah am Fenster mitbekommt.
The whole experience was fantastic. Everything worked seamlessly, as was communicated leading up to the trip, and Francesco was waiting for us at the apartment, even though we arrived (by a transport from the airport through them) at after midnight. He was positive and easy to talk to. He gave us a home made map of the Barranco area with personal recommendations. Every recommendation that we used was phenomenal. What a treat to have your own personal hosts of a totally new place that have impeccable taste!!! Their little one is pretty adorable as well.
Francesco and Carmen are great hosts and the place is wonderful. The area is very cool--home to a lot of great bars, restaurants, and galleries. It's right across from a really nice park and has a great view. The apartment is close to San Martín street and is a little noisy.
