About this listing
Lima is fantastic, fun and its food delicious. It can get overwhelming, though. Show your back to it and face the ocean in this oasis. Fifty meters above the ocean, on the 10th floor, enjoy all the modern day amenities in a fully-equipped apartment. Being so closed to the ocean, the scent of mold USED to be a problem in the closets. I have installed UV light rod dehumidifiers which stay plugged and on 24/7.
The capital of Peru has much to offer. First of all, the Limeños (and Peruvians by extension) are extraordinary hosts, the food is delicious, and music, fun and culture are never in short supply. Nevertheless, Lima is a chaotic, fast-paced and loud city. Heavy traffic, street vendors, and a ceaseless rythm envelops the city well into the night. Contrast this with the quiteness and magnificence of the vast Pacific viewed 50 meters above sea level. The building is located on a cliff; the apartment on the 10th floor. The ocean is the alpha and omega of this modern, spacious and comfortable apartment. The living room has a view, the dining room has a separate view and the master room has a view, to the Pacific. Yet, this glass-and-steel oasis is located 15 minutes away from the airport, 5 minutes away from a massive Shopping Center (Plaza San Miguel); 20 minutes away from the financial heart of the city San Isidro; and 20 minutes away from Miraflores, the touristic heart of the city.
This oasis in not just about the ocean; in here you will have strong internet WiFi, Cable Television from around the world (Cable Magico) and a landline to be connected with your loved ones and the latest events.
Surprise your family and overwhelm your guests in here; you might be able to enjoy the radiance of the sun sinking into the Pacific, one sunset after another.
p.s. I like talking. So please ask as many questions as you want, because I enjoy helping. Transportation; public transportaion; places nearby; what's safe what isn't; anything! Please, don't be shy and ask on; even for a discount!
Interaction with guests
I have a housekeeper that will take care of you in case you're on a pickle, emergency or ongoing situation. Her name is Sra. Rosa Vasques. Please feel free to contact me anytime you want for any sort of help, question or assistance.
Other things to note
Enjoy your stay!
Show respect and consideration. Cleanliness and honesty are the paramount signs of respect and consideration. The balcony is very large, no need to smoke indoors. If you damage something, please report it; don't let me find out later, for obvious reasons. Enjoy the apartment in a way that it won't bother our neighbors with excessive noise, etc.

I am a born-and-raised-in-Peru Peruvian American. I live in Athens, GA and I have family in Peru. My aunt Ana lives in the next building over, actually. I have a passion for traveling and meeting different cultures and practice new languages. My dream is to work for the foreign service.... Anywhere!
I am truly blessed with this beautiful apartment, and I happy to share it with you all. I am from Callao, which is very close to San Miguel (next district over). It is a sensational place to rest, and a privileged one too! Lima can be engulfing, but having this oasis where to rest, and treat guests and just be "away" from it all, is a priceless luxury. Oh! Not to mention I get to see the sun descending into the ocean, coloring the sky and the clouds, bidding farewell to the day and setting the most excellent introduction to the night, rather often
I have traveled rather extensively, South America, Central America, North America, Europe and the Middle East. Of all these places, in America I must remark: La Antigua Guatemala (gorgeous place with its volcano and so lush); Valparaiso (where I am returning shortly), the hill and the colorful houses facing the Pacific, mixes with the most handsome people ever, a true jewel. Rio de Janeiro; even before landing you know you're down for something spectacular. The geography of the city is unique, the ever presence of the Corcovado Christ so high up in the mountain (yeah that high), and the resemblance to Lima (safe people are much more expressive and voluptuous -if that's even possible), make this a fascinating place to be; the sexiest people, ever. New York, well it is the indisputable capital of the World and there are countless reasons to it.
Lima is of course my favorite city, but I am biased, naturally. I like the food, the ocean, I like the fact that it is a big city and I can find almost anything I want. But what I like the most about Lima is metaphysical. It is more noticeable when I am alone, walking in the drizzle or looking out the window; it is the feeling of being home, where I belong. It manifest itself when talking to a stranger: the lady who tends a store in a random corner; the cool taxi driver relating his flirtations and conquests with women; or the old lady selling religious stuff outside church. For the untrained eye, Lima can be an unattractive, even ugly place. To me Lima is simply fascinating.
