About this listing
We offer you our home where you are very welcome. From here, you could discover the beautiful city of Arequipa, the "white city".
We love our city and enjoy to tell you all about its secrets.
Hoping that you will like it as much as you do.
It's a 4 bedrooms' appartement where we live us and one peruvian friend.
In the terasse, in front of the three volcanos that surround our city or in the balcony in front of the park, you would enjoy Arequipa's sun.
The bedroom has one simple bed and a big closet.
We also have extra mastress.
Hot shower in the shared bathroom.
Full kitchen that you can use as you want: microwave, oven, blender (for sweet fruit juices), coffee maker ...
In the living room we can share good moments together.
We offer you a continental breakfast: hot beverage + bread + jam/butter + home-made fresh juice.
If you need so, we do have a washing machine.
You can relax reading one of our books (in spanish or french) or watching Dvds.
You can also find good tourist's informations in my Peruvian guide (in french) and if you plane to go to in the Brasilian guide (in italian), and, over all, I am here to give you informations.
Interaction with Guests
We speak english, spanish, french, italian and some portuguese.
We love sharing with our guests, but, at the same time, we know about privacy and respect it.
We know quite well our city and region and it's always a pleasure to share the goods tips with everyone; like Santa Catalina Monastery and miradors in Arequipa, as well hot baths and beautiful lands of Canyon del Colca (4h from the city).
The appartment is located in the 1st floor of an house. Our uniques neighbors are at the ground floor. Then the 2nd floor is our private terasse.
The neighborhood is really quiet, houses are around the little park.
Cayma's district is one of Arequipa's bests, with Yanahuara wich is located really closed.
You can go walking by these places until the downtown.
The neighborhood is really accessfull: very close we have shops, a pool, movie theaters ...
Really closed, 2 minutes walking, you arrive at the avenue where there are all the "combis" (it means buses) to go to the city.
It costs 0.80 soles, so you can move really cheap and really easy.
Or you can take a taxi that costs 7 soles to go to the downtown.
We also have a bike that you can use if you need so (ask while booking).
Other Things to Note
If you want to stay for a longer period, ask me for the price by month.
Izia y Jota nos hicieron sentir parte de su hogar y eso fue genial, logramos compartir con ellos en varias oportunidades son tremendos y también nos recomendaron que podíamos hacer en Arequipa y como.
El lugar es amplio, cómodo y cálido, con una excelente conexión WiFi que para nosotros es esencial.
Definitivamente me quedaría con ellos de nuevo el día que vuelva a caer en Arequipa.
Porcierto, hacen un excelente Pisco Sour :D
The reservation was canceled 8 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
As Izia helped out a friend in trouble, she could not host me on short notice. But she was very helpful in arranging accomodation with her mother-in-law and her family instead, who is living almost in the neighbourhood of Arequipa. I stayed there for about five days and was a very pleasant, homely experience of the city. I once even enjoyed a phenomenal ceviche (and once a similarly tastful Peruvian-Chinese dinner) with Izia and Jota, her boyfriend. They're a very nice, open-minded couple and I am sure everybody will love to stay with them.
Très bon accueil d'Izia et de son ami. Nous avons eu des conseils forts utiles pour notre séjour péruvien. Nous sommes restées 3 jours à Arequipa. L'appartement est situé dans un quartier résidentiel à 10-15 min du centre à pied. C'est calme et verdoyant. Très bon rapport qualité/prix. Adresse à recommander !
Ville agréable, Arequipa nous a charmé par son architecture et sa structure d'accueil. Faut voir!
Friendly, laid-back couple with a nice flat in a quiet and secure area. Izia was helpful with some last minute date changes and happy to let us leave some of our gear in the flat while trekking. Recommended.
