Count 1, 2, 3 from the top on the right side of the building. Do you see the two yellow lights? This is it. In the middle of the city, yet isolated.  Step out to the balcony and enjoy a privileged view.

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 space

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.

Centrally located near to shopping centers and beautiful ocean views. The closeness to a Police Station was an added security feature .

My husband, best friend, and I had a great stay at Manuel's apartment. The apartment is high up in a tall building that is next to the ocean. It has great views of the water and the city. There is an elevator to get up, so no stairs to climb. The entry is secure and there is a friendly doorman. The location is a short walk to a busier road that has restaurants and convenience stores. A large grocery store is a 20 minute walk. It was also easy to Uber into the city or to the airport for much less than a taxi. The apartment is really great. 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a large living/dining room looking out over the ocean. The shower had really good pressure and hot water and the wifi worked great. The apartment was clean and nicely decorated, a great place to stay in Lima. The only minor concerns that we ran into we're that Lima in the summer is hot and humid and to keep the apartment cool we left the windows open to create a draft, but that left a thin film of soot like dust on the floors that got your feet all dirty. Not a huge thing, and easily solved with a pair of slippers. The other thing was the shower in the master bath leaked a bit around the shower curtain no mater how you arranged the curtain. The water mixed with the soot and made a mess on the bathroom floor. Other than those minor things, this was a great place to stay in Lima Communication with Manuel was prompt and easy and check-in and check-out was super simple.

Thank you so much for staying at the apartment and thank you for your kind review! Lima is in a desert, so it's always going to be dusty... Alas, there is not much to do there other than keeping it clean. Usually, for longer stays, I will provide cleaning at no cost to the guest. I am aware of the water problem in the master bath and I will fix it in the coming days! Thank you again, I work hard to keep the apartment in the best shape possible, I am so glad you had a good experience... !!!

The apartment is great. They have a doorman 24 hours a day and a police station less than 2 blocks away. The apartment was just as described and shown in the pictures. It was nice to be able to see the sunset everyday from there. A little hard to get taxis from there so i suggest just use uber and you won't have a problem. Manuel was a great host. I had trouble booking my stay and he was very patient and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for your kind comments. The doorman Sr. Juan really is a remarkable person. I am so fortunate to have him to help you all during your stay. And you're right: share-riding is the way to go; the quality is substantially better than your average street taxi, plus there is no shenanigans when it comes to pricing. Thanks again!

Not good! Chose this place because I had an early flight to cusco. It's some what close to airport. Closer then Mira Flores. Not a good location. Sketchy. Not tourist at all. Apartment is not in the condition the photos look like. Looks abandone inside to be honest. She didn't leave the water heater on so didn't have hot water for 5 hours. Apartment smells damp and moldy. Only nice thing is the view.

Stayed here with my family for one night, the doorman was very welcoming and helpful. Manuel was also helpful and available. The apartment has everything we needed, as described on airbnb. Plenty space in the bedrooms and huge kitchen. The only negative thing was the cleanliness was not great, the windows were dirty and the floor was filthy (all our socks turned black).

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.
