Laid back are the two words that describe myself.
This place was perfect! Everything was exactly as shown and described above and Edward is an excellent host--very responsive and flexible. He will definitely make you feel comfortable and welcome. The terrace is just as amazing as it looks, and the sunsets are even better. The location is perfect for accessing everything Lima has to offer and is in a beautiful and safe neighborhood. I would definitely book this place again!
The apartment is centrally located in a safe, desirable area where we walked to shops, restaurants, Kennedy Park, and the beach area. Security in the building was always present and the building well groomed -- The main reason we choose this particular unit was because of the attraction to the outside gazebo area this apartment offered on the rooftop which turned out, great and very private. We held a small family reunion out on the roof, borrowed a radio (non-was provided in apt.) from security, bought candles and had a memorable time.
The apartment itself was somewhat smaller than what the pictures offered and very scares with decorations. There were no pictures on any of the bedroom walls, no shelves, and only the master room offered 2 nightstands with a lamp that had a broken base. The closest were of ample size however the shelves in them where crammed with pillows, and blankets which were of no use to us since the beds already had these items. The 3rd bedroom which there was no photo for was very small but had an incredible view of Miraflores as did the other 2 bedrooms. This room only offered a bed (no headboard) and closet. That's it! It certainly lacked charm, however, the full size bed was very comfortable after a full day of sight-seeing. There are (2) bathrooms side by side, in the hallway and 1/2 a bathroom upstairs on the rooftop which were comfortable in size and provided plenty of hot water. Again, I was surprised for the lack of detail that was provided -- the plastic shower curtain did not hang properly (3 holes where ripped therefore did not hang completely), and cups in cup/toothbrush holders were missing. The kitchen had everything we needed but needed a good scrub down. The cabinets had grime and the oven door did not close properly or at all. A walk from the kitchen to my bedroom "barefoot" left my feet black and in need of a foot scrub. Lastly, the washer/dryer did worked, however, require a lot of "manipulation" for the dryer.
I do believe this apartment has a lot of potential -- however, considering we payed somewhat in the neighborhood of $750 for 5 nights, and payed for "cleaning", these things must be addressed. Because there weren't but a couple of reviews prior to this one, I'm assuming that this unit is new to the rental market and hope that with these details addressed, the unit will be fantastic.
Lastly, it was overlooked but extremely important that the front door has a double lock which must be activated intentionally for your safety. Closing the front will lock the door but not bolt it. Turning the key once, does secure the door, but turning twice, bolts the door. Also, the garbage shoot was not mentioned and is found just outside the front door through the door by the elevator.
Edward was an excellent host. Not only did he reply to our inquiry in record time but he was warm and welcoming. The apartment was spacious, well equipped and perfectly clean. It is situated in the best neighborhood of the city. The terrace was a real treat. For business or pleasure, I fully recommend this apartment and this host. Beats a hotel any day!
Amazing! In great location to all miraflores! 2 min Walking distance to Kennedy park and 5 to lancomar. I highly recommend this place, Edward was on time and very polite
Ed was easy to communicate with and replied very quickly to questions. The apartment itself is in a nice location in Miraflores. It was comfortable and had what we needed. The rooftop patio is very nice and we spent a lot of time playing cards up there.
Absolutely loved the apartment, the location, and Edward.
Edward was a fantastic host! I enjoyed meeting and chatting with him. He was responsive when I sent him questions, and he always supported me and my requests. The apartment was clean, with everything I needed. Great ocean and city view !
Thanks for everything
