My wife and I arranged to stay her in January 2015. We stayed for four days/nights during week one of April 2015. Throughout our email (VRBO) conversations with Hugo (Spanish and English), we received fast, prompt replies to all of our pre-travel inquiries. We provided, in advance, our complete itineraries to Hugo for him to arrange any assistance. We arrived (by driver from Cusco) at midday during the week, and we departed late Friday evening (by driver to the airport) to return home. Senora Catalina capably assisted us when we arrived, and Hugo visited us upon our departure. It was convenient to stay in such a beautiful, modern, clean and secure apartment with onsite assistance. The remodeled living, kitchen, bath and laundry areas have modern amenities including newer appliances as well as portable fans/air conditioner, flat screen TV, and home office with Internet/WiFi, computer and printer. The southern Miraflores District (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miraflores_District,_Lima ), near the water and north of the Barranco District (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barranco_District, is very affluent and secure. Without exception, the apartments, homes and businesses here use alarm systems and employ private security companies to compliment public police. We walked around Miraflores day and night and Barranco during the day, only requiring a taxi (from the J.W. Marriott Hotel) to travel to central Lima and to the San Isidro District (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Isidro_District, Lima) for dinner. The apartment is about 4-5 blocks by foot from Larcomar Mall (http://www.larcomar.com/) which overlooks the cliffs and the beach, where we shopped (familiar stores/brands), visited the ATMs (for all worldwide banks), and ate an occasional meal here too; chain restaurants including reputable Latin names as well, like Tanta, (http://www.tantaperu.com). As well, the mall has a nice grocery store named Wong (https://www.wong.com.pe/pe/supermercado/miraflores.html ) when you tire of eating out. Miraflores has several great restaurants very close by. Central Restaurante (http://centralrestaurante.com.pe/en/) is directly across the street from the apartment. Also, we at northern Peruvian food at Fiesta Restaurante just around the corner, (http://www.restaurantfiestagourmet.com/restaurante.html). Please, take a trip to Astrid y Gastón or La Barra in San Isidro (http://www.astridygaston.com/) too. Make restaurant reservations in advance, however. Muchas Gracias, Hugo!
