The location is amazing. In the heart of Miraflores 2 or 3 blocks from Larcomar Mall and the cliffs overlooking the ocean. Very safe area. Near restaurants, bars etc. The place where most tourists stay.
Washing Machine. Working Kitchen. Cable with international channels, i.e. English movies and plenty of futbol/soccer. Super/Door Man on site. An an extra mattress in one of the rooms meaning you could easily sleep extra people.
Generally, the house was not exactly in the state described or how the pictures show. Everything was there but it just wasnt what we expected. The chairs and sofa are comfy but showing plenty of wear. There are a 1000 DVD cases - few actual DVDs. No Wifi though the ad said there would be. One of the showers clogs so you shower with an inch or more of water in the tub. No toilet paper, we had to buy. Seemed slightly grimy. An iron was there but seemed dirty. We were going to a wedding and I ironed my shirt inside out to be sure it didnt stain.
Poor communication by the hostess. We were set to check out at noon on the last day. At 7:30am the super calls to see if we were there and wakes us up. He says he is checking b/c the owner is on her way arriving in an hour. So sure enough an hour later the owner shows up with a ton of baggage and her kids and asks if she can come in. What could we do? We let her in and proceeded to shower and pack our bags with her in the house. We had a plane to catch so were planinning on leaving by 10am anyway, but still pretty annoying.
The joke we had is that the place was like a fast food advertisement. You see the crisp lettuce, perfect tomato and sumptuous beef, all at a cheap price and decide to get one. But then the actual burger you get isnt exactly like the photo. Everything is there and you cant really complain but....... something is off.
Overall, I'd say if you are a group of friends travelling or looking for a place to crash, this place is good. If you are a couple on a romantic trip, perhaps look elsewhere.
We contacted Kathy few days before our stay and she replied to us very promptly. We wanted to spend some time in Miraflores, and the flat was perfectly located, only a few blocks away from Larcomar and the Costa Verde! The flat was spacious and clear, with a separate large bedroom. The listing description was fairly short so we weren’t sure what to expect but all you need to cook was included and there was even a washing machine to do some laundry if needed. Overall, real good listing if you want to spend some time in Miraflores.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
