Stay in one of my family's apartments during your visit to Peru. They are all very comfortable, modern, clean , spacious and perfectly located in the heart of Miraflores.
Enjoy your stay!
We were so excited we had found a great place when we found this apartment. Unfortunately it was not a great experience. The pictures show a perfectly clean apartment and that was not the case. The apartment is anything but clean. Walls were dirty, some areas had paint and cement peeling. In some areas you could see the door frames were missing, and saw the unfinished look. There was a very odd smell in the apartment. There was dust and dirt accumulation by the windows, blinds. The windows did not have any kind of child proof locks. So definitely this is not a family friendly apartment.
Because I had booked my stay for over a week, I decided to put up with all the issues i had found at the place, until our third day we were woken up early in the morning by construction noise from the floor above, and then finding insects on the kitchen counter next to my kids bottles.
These two issues, really forced us to find another apartment at the last minute.
This apartment has great potential if they actually were to take care of the issues. It is in an excellent location close to both larcomar, and downtown miraflores….
La localización del apartamento es estupenda. Esta cerca al parque Kennedy de Miraflores.
Lo negativo es la falta de limpieza del mismo y el mal estado de algunos enseres.
Excelente apartamento com otima localização. Sugestão: para períodos mais longos, oferecer alguém para fazer uma limpeza (website hidden) cozinha, os utensílios poderiam estar melhor lavados. Mas tudo estava bem limpo. Recomendo
Response from Giannina:
Muchas gracias que disfruto de su viaje y tomamos sus sugerencias. Esperamos en el próximo viaje.
I was in town for apartment hunting in Connecticut. Giannina was very friendly, responsive, and accommodating. I also appreciated all the knowledge they shared about living in the area. The stay was great - room was clean and had the necessities. Would definitely recommend the place to anyone looking for accommodations.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Giannina was incredibly friendly, hospitable, and inviting. The room was well kept and clean. She and her husband were very respectful. I would love to stay here again if I am in the area and would recommend her to anything.
It's a very nice and clean apartment at walking distance of Kennedy park, Larcomar, and a wide variety of shops. We had a very pleasant stay.
This apartment is advertised as "impeccable", however, it is far from that. There were several problems with this apartment, there was a serious mold problem in the apartment, and the place had not been cleaned properly. The mold problem was evident in the bathroom where there was black mold on the sink, water damage on the ceiling and walls, but the water and mold issue extended beyond the bathroom and into the hall walls (with paint and plaster that had fallen off because of the water leakage). Furthermore, the carpet on the floor also showed evidence of mold.
The apartment had not been cleaned properly for a long time! The shower floor in the hall bathroom was nearly black (and would have benefited from some serious scrubbing and Ajax!). The inside of the microwave and the top of the range hood were filthy! Not surprisingly then, some little critters (i.e. cockroaches) were seen to roam through the kitchen in the wee hours of the night!
In addition to the poor state of the apartment, it was also missing many of the "basics" that one tends to find in most other apartments that I have rented in the past: salt, sugar, paper towels, dishwashing liquid, etc. Often times, there may even be some tea, or other basics such as toiletries. The only thing we found was about two tablespoons worth of dishwashing liquid. In addition, the apartment lacked a coffeemaker (and a hair dryer). When the contact in Lima was asked about the coffeemaker, he brought one over the following day, but it looked as though it had not been washed for months!!!!
As if the mold issue and the lack of basics were not enough, there were other things that should have been addressed before renting the apartment out and referring to it as "impeccable". The tub in the master BR bathroom did not drain properly. 2-3 inches of water accumulated as one showered! (yuk!). (FYI --- Hall BR lacked a bath mat and a hand towel too.)
Given the condition of the apartment, I was quick to send an email to Giannina on the first night there. While she had been "spotty" in responding to emails in the past, she chose to ignore my last email. My point to her was that as renters we have a responsibility to keep the place in good condition, however, as the owner, I think that she, too, had a responsibility to her renters to deliver on the advertised promises - and she did not! I know this serious mold issue did not arise over night, so she should level with renters and make them aware that the apartment has a problem - and she should drop the "impeccable" reference!
Apartment location was the best thing about this apartment. Also, the taxidriver that picked us up at the airport was very nice.
Bottom line, in principle, this would have been a good apartment to rent, however, given its condition, it was not!
Response from Giannina:
We regret that you did not enjoy your stay. We will be taking your comments into consideration since we do ensure that we keep the apartments in high standards. Many thanks for staying in one of the apartments.
