First, José is a terrific host. He helped us a lot and we had a very good time at Lima.
The apartment is well located, safe and very clean.
Thanks for the hospitality.

I had a great stay in Jose's apartment for many reasons. I highly recommend it. Why stay in a standard boring hotel, when you can have a gorgeous place to make your home for a few days. The location is perfect - supermarket, banks, pharmacies, bars, restaurants and shops are nearby.
Prior to the trip, Jose was very quick to respond to messages and provide tips on getting from the airport to the apartment. He tracked my flight and knew when I was landing, and then met me at the apartment. While I was in the cab he checked up on my progress. Throughout the trip he sent me messages ensuring everything was going well.
Most importantly -
The apartment is in a new building and is clean, modern, well-equipped, and comfortable. There are blackout shades in the bedroom, two televisions (helps when dealing with jet lag), coffee maker, soft towels and a new refrigerator. I was traveling alone but it was easily big enough for two.
Jose was a perfect host. He was very attentive to our needs and always responded to messages immediately. When we arrived, the apartment was very clean and exactly as described in the description of the apartment. The apartment itself is very nice and new. It is situated in a very nice and safe neighborhood with many excellent options for entertainment and dining. Five of five stars for Jose and for the apartment. Book your trip in barranco with Jose. You will definitely not regret it.
Apartamento moderno y bien equipado. Ubicación excelente en un barrio elegante y tranquilo, con todos los servicios necesarios cerca (supermercado, farmacias, bancos, restaurantes), además fácil desplazarse a las demás zonas de la ciudad. José fue muy amable y nos brindó información valiosa.
Jose was there for us from the beginning. What a wonderful host! The unit we rented was in a very good neighborhood , centrally located, and just a delight to stay in. We would definitely stay there again, and there is a good chance we will depending on how our schedule works out.
Don't look further. Jose is an incredible host. He replies momentarily and makes sure you are comfortable and all set during your stay. He is a very professional host. The place is awesome. It is very similar to staying in a boutique hotel. Everything in the apartment is of very high quality. Jose furnished it with designer items. Beautiful wooden bed, high-quality lamps, kitchen appliances, bathroom furnishing, all is of excellent quality and feel. Jose didn't compromise when he furnished it. The apartment is 2 mins away walk from the supermarket Metro, and one of the city's best French bakeries Delifrance is 2 seconds walk from the apartment building. Overall you can't go wrong with this place in Barranco. I actually liked it way more than staying in Miraflores because of how much quieter Barranco is. By the way, forgot to mention, the beautiful Barranco coast line is 3 minutes away by foot. The location is excellent! I've stayed in this apartment for 2 months and was quite sad to leave. Anyways, don't look further.
Jose Est un excellent hote, tres soucieux de la proprete et du confort de Son appartement ,gentil mais dans être envahissant , il s'est rassure par texto si tout allait bien , la situation de l appartement est géniale , entouré de magasins , bars et restos on trouve tout ce qu il faut , j aimerais bientôt y pouvoir retourner !
Excellent place, thanks Jose! I've been living there for 2 weeks - came to Lima for a business, and it was even above my expectations!
The place is even more bright and lightly then on the pictures, all equipment is new, modern and working. Place has absolutely anything you may need, perfectly located - 2 blocks from the ocean, another 2 blocks from central square Barranco, 10 min walk to Miraflores and well protected. No negative experience at all, excellent combination of price/quality. Very friendly and multilingual host, living in 2 minutes away from you. When I asked for an additional blanket - it was delivered in few minutes on the same day.
Very important for me was that its indeed very quiet location, so I have had excellent rest there - no outside noise at all - besides some construction works neighbours made during the week - but I was anyway at work during weekdays.
Jose, once again - thank you VERY MUCH!!!
Leonid thanks! and hope to see you again!
I stayed here for almost 3 weeks. I've spent 10 weeks in Lima, on 4 separate trips. So far I have stayed in 8 different apartments and checked out a number of others. This is my favorite by far. It's brand new, very clean, modern, well designed, comfortable, and quite stylish. Jose is a terrific host, accommodating and easy to communicate with. He speaks English and responds to emails quickly, often instantaneously! He has taken enormous care in furnishing and equipping this apartment. As a previous reviewer noted, the kitchen is unusually well equipped. Other unexpected touches include a washing machine, portable heater, air purifiers, a fancy scale, plasma TVs in the living room and bedroom, a radio/ipod thingy, and excellent, fast wifi. And everything is of excellent quality. The apartment is on the top floor (4th) on an interior garden courtyard so it is buffered from Lima's infamous street noise. And Barranco is quieter than Miraflores anyway. The surrounding buildings are low rise so there is good light and air, even some tiny views. The building has excellent 24 hour security. Barranco is my favorite neighborhood in Lima, much more human in scale and less crowded than MIraflores. As an older woman traveling alone, I've always felt safe here, even when I've walked home late at night (from the local casinos!). It's undergoing gentrification so is quite eclectic. You get to experience old Lima while enjoying all the conveniences of new Lima. And as Jose notes in his description everything you need or want is just a short walk away, including the best gourmet food store in Lima - DeliFrance - which is at the end of his block. Thank you for a wonderful, relaxing stay, Jose.
This apartment is incredible. First, the host: Jose was very responsive and answered any questions I had in advance. Definitely a very good host even though I never actually met him.
Second, the apartment: It has everything I needed. To begin with, it's brand new, very bright and very clean. The kitchen was equipped with enough appliances for a chef, including a coffee pot (which I desperately needed), hot water maker and tons of things I never even used. The apartment had 2 bathrooms - one in the hall and one in the bedroom. Water pressure was great, tons of hot water and, best of all, there was a laundry machine in the master bath so I didn't have to take my clothes to the cleaner. Bed was very, very comfortable and there was a fan to bring the fresh sea air into the apartment. Wi-fi was very strong as well. There was Direct TV but I am not a TV person so I never really watched it. The building was very quiet and modern, front desk staff were very friendly and there was a small gym, which I never had time to use.
Third, the location: Barranco is my favorite neighborhood and this was ideally located. It was one block from Metro (a supermarket), a block from the malecon offering beautiful views of the ocean, and there were tons of little restaurants and chifas to go for lunch. You can hop on any one of the buses that will take you to Larcomar or Miraflores for only 1 sol.
I am very critical when I travel and I can think of nothing but positive things to say about my experience. I'd highly recommend this apartment for anyone spending time in Lima.
Thanks Matt por tan buena referencia!
Lo de la clinica de al lado es el himno nacional... todos los lunes lo cantan, es una ceremonia formal como inicio de semana laboral!
Hubo un problema con la reserva al hora de ingresar, pero se corrigió inmediatamente. Lamentamos el imprevisto y la mala pasada. Por todo lo demás es una excelente cliente.
Jose is the very nice guest. Apartment were in perfect condition after check-out. I'll glad to see Jose as my guest again. My best recommendations!
Great guest to have
Jose is a great guest - very polite and easy-going. It was a real pleasure hosting him. Highly recommended to all hosts.The flat was left in a perfect condition.
Very punctual communicative and responsible person. Recommend him to other owners as good client. Will be glad to cooperate again.
Jose отличный гость!
Отличная квартира, в престижном районе Лимы. Останавливалась там на несколько дней. Хосэ очень внимательный и отзывчивый человек, всегда можно расчитывать на его помощь. Очень рекомендую!
I stayed at Jose's apartment for about a week. The apartment is conveniently located in one the best neighborhoods in Lima.
I am frequent Airbnb user, as well as a host. Staying at Jose's apartment was by far one of my best experiences. The apartment is located in a newly built building, with 24hrs security and doorman. Supermarket and stores, as well as restaurants are located within walking distance. The apartment is equipped with all you need for a pleasant stay. WiFi is fast and reliable.
I can only compliment Jose for keeping his place neat and well furnished and for maintaining excellent communication and availability at all times.
My next stay in Lima will definitely be at Jose's place again.
José, est un garçon très aimable, bien cultivé, et son niveau de formation professionnelle lui permet d'entretenir des bonnes relations sociales. Il a en plus du bon goût en ce qui concerne le tourisme!!!
