English speaking husband and wife living in Peru
We feel Rachel & Hans went out of their way to make us feel more like friends of the family than paying guests. Breakfast: fruit, juice, tea, rolls. Ask a question, receive a thoughtful answer; need to be accommodate? If it's possible, you will be.
Beds worked as did the bathroom facilities.
There are dogs but they did not invade our space; when they acted up someone in charged intervened.
Try it, you'll like it.
We had a great experience with Rachel and Hans- they were there to give us an overall picture of Mira Flores, helped us with phone calls, bus tix- but we felt free to come and go as we pleased. They have a beautiful apt - with a great view. They both know a lot about Lima and other areas of Peru and were willing to share what they know.
Miraflores is the best area to stay in while in Lima and having a view of the water from Rachel's apartment was a bonus. Rachel and Hans were excellent hosts and provided us with much useful information. The apartment was very comfortable as was our room and we felt very much at home. Communication with Rachel before the trip was excellent and we had no problem with our arrival, even thought it was at three in the morning. I would definitely stay here again and if you are looking for a very comfortable homestay, this is the one for you
We have stayed with Rachel and Hand multiple times, and always it is a pleasure! Gracious hosts, amazing view and yummy breakfast!
Hans & Rachel were more than incredible. I just moved to Peru and they were my first stop; they were so helpful, I'm not really sure what I would have done without them.
Rachel and Hans have a beautiful house, great ocean view from the balcony. I stayed just one night, but wish I had stayed much much longer. Really enjoyed chatting with both of them and had great tips about things to do that really came in handy.
Will definitely stay there again.
Rachel and Hans were the most welcoming and gracious of hosts. Lima was our first stop on a year long trip, and staying with them felt like family. From delicious fruit and tea in the morning, to recommendations on what might be a good place to eat, or go find a cocktail. They were a wealth of information. A bustling household always filled with life, we enjoyed them and our stay immensely. Not to mention, the view from their patio is amazing. We watched several incredible sunsets from their condo.
Rachel and Hans exeplified Peruvian hospitality with their warmth and generous welcome. It was really like staying at home in their beautiful apartment. They were both very considerate and sympathetic toward first time travellers and provided more than adequate assistance in ensuring my stay was comfortable both inside the apartment and outside in Lima city. Rachel was always very prompt in her correspondence leading up to my stay and gave me good pointers to check out the city on a budget travellers pocket =). The apartment itself is gorgeous with a sprawling lounge room and spacious wrap around balcony that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Great spot to chill out over a peruvian pisco and a book! The room as well was very comfortable, clean and the balcony of the room also came with ocean views. It is exactly what it looks like in photos! I would recommend this lovely couple as wonderful hosts, very highly.
I had such a great time at their place! They are so kind and helpful. I've felt so much at home that's why I returned to their place after my short trip to San Francisco. You have an amazing view over the sea and you can watch the sunset from the terrace. The apartment is very well located. Rachel and Hans know so much about Lima and what you can do there. I highly recommend it!
Rachel und Hans sind sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und völlig unkompliziert. Unser Zimmer war groß und bequem. Vom Wohnzimmerbalkon hat man den Blick auf den Pazifik. Das Apartement ist in Miraflores sehr gut gelegen. Für uns war es ein schöner und angenehmer Einstieg um Lima kennenzulernen und unsere dreiwöchige Perurundreise zu starten. Gerne wieder!
