The apartment is great value - clean, a good size and great location. The hosts were very helpful and responsive. Many thanks!!
I stayed there over 2 weeks so let me try to share my opinions as objective as possible.
1) Location - Close to seaside (Malecon) and green areas. 8 min to Larcomar shopping mall and 15 min to Parque Kennedy by walk.
2) Space - enough for 4 people.
3) Well-equipped - sufficient materials and equipments for cooking lovers. It was also nice of them to stock the kitchen with some drinks and biscuits and eggs etc but coffee powder was after expiry date.
4) Really helpful doorman - Ivan was extremely kind and helped me all them time.
1) Dark - there's not enough light in the living room. Felipe explained that it's because it's winter season and the weather is gray. but even on a sunny day it is dark just as it is. I had to turn on lights all the time.
2) Old, rusty and dirty - the furnitures are old, carpet and sofa smelled bad and toilet was especially dirty.
3) Bars on the window - I guess it's for security purpose, but it felt like prison. Opening and closing it was complicated and required a lot of force.
4) Slow communication - overall Felipe and his assistant were helpful but there were often 1-2 days of delay in responses. Rather than replying on airbnb, the lady preferred to call the house before or around 9AM (when she gets in office I guess) which was not convenient for me.
5) No washing machine.
6) Fridge didn't work for first 4 day
Lived in Lima for five months for work. The apartment was great, the listing was accurate and the location was perfect.
The apartment is in a perfect location very close to Larcomar. Miraflores is the place you want to be if you are visiting lima and this apartment is close to everything. Felipe left us a nice surprise consisting of snacks, water, soda and chocolates! He can speak English which helps a lot when you have to ask something by phone (even though I can speak a little Spanish everything is harder by phone!)
The only reason I didn't give five stars is that there was that typical smell of closed apartment, but after opening up the balcony it was alright. I'd go back no doubts without even looking for somewhere else. Thanks Felipe!
El apartamento estuvo excelente: suuper bien ubicado justo frente al malecon de miraflores, el clima excelente, la zona muy bonita, ful equipado con sabanas cobijas tres camas muy comodas, dos habitaciones, dos baños (uno chiquito y el otro muy comodo) la cocina tambien muy bien equipada con ollas platos vasos cubiertos. En fin la pasamos de lo mejor alla sobretodo por la ubicacion del apartamento porque teniamos muchas cosas cerca: el malecon(con jardines super lindos para pasear), el parque kenedy, supermercados metro y wong tambien a pocas cuadras caminando entre 5-10min. Estamos muy agradecidos por la hospitalidad del señor felipe ya que siempre estuvo pendiente de nosotros antes y durante la estadia.
The apartment was as comfortable as advertised and the location was super for all our needs. We enjoyed our stay very much and hope to return to Lima for another trip in the future. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We felt safe and cozy. The doorman was helpful and friendly. Our driver had no difficulty parking at the door for easy departure. The kitchen allowed us to cook and share meals at our convenience. The best feature was the host himself. Felipe was so gracious and accommodating. Our flight was delayed and we arrived alter than anticipated. He greeted us in person bearing a bag of grocery items that were much appreciated. We never expected that level of service! He showed us around Miraflores and suggested places to visit. He is a warm and humorous host.
Excelente apartamento, muy bien ubicado, sin duda sin vuelvo a LIma lo tomaria de Nuevo, Felipe es muy formal y el apartamento es muy comodo.
Rented this apartment for about 8 days as our ‘home-base’ for a 2 ½ week vacation. 2 couples mid 50s
The location is excellent – close to everything in Mireflores, but his apartment failed to meet our minimum requirements for a clean, comfortable Lima apartment to stage trips to various locations in Peru
-It is cold – there is no heating- and it was very cold in October
-It wasn't very clean. The wood floor was dirty and the rug and tablecloth soiled. The shower was moldy and chunks of the tile were missing. The smell of this old apartment isn't too pleasant
-It is very noisy. You can hear everything on the street. There are two sliding doors leading to the balcony – both secured with a heavy chain and padlock- it felt very ghetto and offered no resistance to noise and very little to drafts. There is a major construction project just down the street
-Poor lighting and exposed wiring. Head hits bedroom light
-There isn't much hot water for four adults.
-The bedding and linens were substandard – the queen bed wasn't too bad but the sheets/bedspreads were old and the blankets had LAN airlines logo printed on them. The two single beds in the other bedroom were not too comfortable.
-My last issue was my fault. We arrived at about 11PM and I’d relied on the email in my BB for the address. The street number had been provided in a previous email, but I couldn't get to my email server to get it. I called Felipe’s number – no answer. That was Friday night. I didn't hear from him until Sunday morning when we were leaving the apartment for the airport and Cuzco. (We woke up a friend in Miraflores late Friday night and she looked it up on the airbnb website for us, and after knocking on several doors found Felipe’s doorman) Yes, I should have printed the address from the correspondence I got from Felipe and brought it with me, but why is the street address not in every piece of correspondence? Why couldn't I get a response from the landlord for a couple of days? Same thing when we left – the doorman was nowhere to be found so I left the key in an inconspicuous place and sent Felipe an email – no acknowledgement the key was safely returned. He’d answered emails promptly in the days leading up to our arrival, but once there and when we had issues (admittedly self inflicted) he was nowhere to be found. Frustrating.
In summary, we were disappointed with our experience with this apartment. Our hotel/ lodging/B&B experiences in the rest of Peru were uniformly good, with all costing about the same or less than this Miraflores apartment
the apartment is very well located in Miraflores, close to the beach and Park. You can do everything by walking in Miraflores, its Great!
Felipe is a very kind person, we had a incredible time in Lima!
Todo estuvo excelente y según lo acordado. Felipe fue un muy buen anfitrión. Pasamos una hermosa estadía.
