Charming and relaxing apartment (645 ft2 / 60m2) with a large terrace (430ft2 / 40m2) on the top floor of a house in the heart of Miraflores, ideal 2/3 persons, independent entrance, peaceful, sunny, comfortable and welcoming. Cozy apartment ( total surface of 1075 ft2 / 100m2 including the terrace) situated on the top floor of a 3 story typical house in Miraflores. Decorated with locally handcrafted wicker and cedar furniture, warm colors, and arts and crafts that reflect Peruvian beauty and tradition. Pots of bougainvilleas and other plants from the Peruvian coast dot the terrace which carries a relaxing touch of natural materials: dried bamboo walls and a eucalyptus trunk roof. Both sun and shade guaranteed!
about myself: I was born in Lima where I grew up. As a french/peruvian binational, I moved then to Paris (France) where I work in the film production industry. I kept this house because I really love spending time there once or twice a year. It's a typical 3 story house full of charm, located in the heart of the beautiful and trendy neighborhood of Miraflores. Amenities are at walking distance. All the levels of the house were refurbished and redecorated recently. Each floor is an independent apartment with its own entrance from the street. This unit is located in the top floor with a relaxing big terrace. I decorated it with a mixture of European and Peruvian styles in order to reflect my personality and my roots.
I rent this place since 2/3 years now. I received wonderfull reviews from all my guests since the begining. It's peharps because they feel at home away from home.

A Relaxing place in the middle of the city
Date of Stay October 5, 2012
Not only a wonderful place to stay but more importantly, Rudy and his business associate Roberto were wonderful hosts that went out of their way to ensure that all arrangements happened without a glitch. They were so accommodating that made the stay incredibly relaxing. The apartment's layout, decoration and amenities were excellent (ex. cell phone, wireless internet, well stocked kitchen); felt at home right away. Specially inviting was the outside patio with all sort of beautiful flowering plants that made relaxing easy. The apartment's is located in a quite street that is close enough to many of Miraflores' attractions but far enough from the bustling of the city. Walking distance form the apartment you can find restaurants, movie theaters, bookstores, supermarkets, etc.

Wonderful apartment, excellent location!
Date of Stay July 4, 2012
My daughter a friend and myself stayed in Rudy's apartment for 8 days. From the first contact, Rudy was helpful and considerate in all aspects. The apartment is lovely and in an ideal location to explore Miraflores and the rest of Lima. Rudy provided many tips and extra information including accurate maps for attractions, restaurants, throughout our entire visit! Cesar provided reliable and safe transport to and from the airport and also gave us additional information about the area. Rudy's entire team was professional, responsible and friendly... really added to our stay in Lima! Thanks so much!!!

My brother and I had the pleasure of staying in Lima for 6 days in May. Everything about the property was as we expected and accurate, very clean and inviting. We arrived in the evening and were met at the airport by our new best friend Cesar who drove us to the apartment, where we were met by Roberto. After Roberto showed us around the property, and got the paperwork done, he kindly drove me to the fabulous Wongs supermarket so we could stock up on groceries. I was so good to talk to Rudy the next morning - he wanted to ensure that everything was OK. We made ourselves very comfortable, and found everything we needed. We especially enjoyed the roof terrace, it was lovely to relax outside. I would absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone visiting from OS, the location makes it very easy to get a feel for the area.

A great place to stay in Lima
Date of Stay February 25, 2012
Rudy's place was perfect for our 2-weeks stay in Peru, to visit our son, exchange student at PUCP for a year. We were picked up at the airport by Cesar, and met at the apartment by Roberto. Both were very welcoming, and made us feel instantly at home. Roberto took the time to take us to the supermarket the first night, for groceries, and showed us around the neighborood. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby, very convenient, and visibly safe area. The apartement is located on a quiet street, so you won't be disturbed by the street noise. We enjoyed having the big terrace, so nice with all the plants, perfect to relax after a day of visits. And the table can be under a shade if it's too hot. Other convenients details : a local cell phone is included, very useful, and of course wireless internet. When we left Lima for a few day to visit the great places of Peru, it was very convenient to take only what we needed, and leave the rest of our stuff there, we also arranged with Cesar to take us to the airport, and back. Overall a great vacation, thanks again Rudy for all the care you've shown in making sure everything was ok, before, during, and after our stay !

Casita in Miraflores
Date of Stay January 28, 2012
The listing information and pictures were very accurate. The apartment was nicely furnished and had all the appliances that one could wish for, including an electric rice cooker! The cleaning services provided were excellent and the owner called several times. Every morning, I had breakfast on the terrace at a big round table right outside the door. I would describe the area as upscale residential. There are 2 supermarkets about equally distant (10 minutes walk) from the property, a natural foods cafe next door, a super French deli about 1.5 blocks away and many restaurants nearby. I would definitely recommend this property.

Great Apartment in a Fantastic Location
Date of Stay May 19, 2011
Renting this apartment really made our trip that much more enjoyable. I was visiting my daughter who is going to school in Lima. The apartment allowed us to spend so much more time together. It was a pleasure dealing with Rudy and his assistants in Lima (A special thank you to Cesar, Roberto and German). The apartment was exactly as described and very well maintained and very clean. The terrace was wonderful for late evening dinners. Miraflores is a great district to walk. There is a great 24 hour restaurant right around the corner which we frequented often for the anticuchos. In fact we visited most of the districts and after a long day sightseeing, it was a pleasure to come back to the apartment and relax. Even though Rudy lives in France, he was accessible and prompt in responding to any questions.

We stayed at Rudy's apartment for a week during the holidays. We are traveling for a whole year and we were looking for a place that felt like home for Christmas... We found it at Rudy's place ! We immediately felt comfortable in this very cosy and charming apartment. The kitchen is very well equipped, the place was very clean and nicely decorated. It feels like a home and it is much better than an impersonal hotel room. We were initially supposed to stay only four nights but we liked the place so much that we extended our stay to the whole week. Rudy responded quickly to every email. Roberto and German were friendly and professional. A supermarket is at a walking distance from the apartment so it is very convenient if you want to cook your own meals. We really enjoyed our stay and we highly recommend the place ! Thank you again for everything !

Great place, GREAT service
Date of Stay November 12, 2011
Picking Rudy's place made my trip-- not because the space was great, which it was, but because the service was INCREDIBLE. Rudy went above and beyond the call of duty and tracked down friends I had known in Lima over 30 years ago whom I had lost track of. First, the place: Very quaint, lovely, quiet and VERY clean, with a great terrace and a nice surprise of basic items in the kitchen. And, it's right next door to Helena's, supposedly the best chocolate shop in Lima, as well as Madre Natura, a great natural foods store and restaurant. And, there are very friendly neighbors, living in Rudy's lower apartments, who offered to assist us if needed. In renting from Rudy, I have made new friends, in plural, because the people working with Rudy are incredibly sweet. Having the driver pick us up at the airport from our 11pm arrival made finding the apartment worry-free. And Roberto, a friend of Rudy's family, who goes over the contract upon arrival, greeted us like old friends.
I exchanged inumerable emails with Rudy before our trip and he was incredibly kind and accommodating. I can't thank him enough for all he did for me. You can certainly find cheaper places to stay in Lima, but they don't come with the family-feeling you'll get in staying at Rudy's. What a trip!!

My wife and I stayed at Rudy's top-floor apartment during our honeymoon. The location is excellent and Rudy was more than hospitable in every possible way. He was always available and his associates were extremely helpful as well. I can't recommend this apartment enough.
I was born in Lima where I grew up. I moved to Paris (France) 25 years ago where I work in the film production industry. Travelling is a passion to me. I try to go to Peru at least once or twice a year but only for short periods and, when possible, to other countries. This place was my family house and I really love it being there. It's a typical local 3 story house full of charm. It's located in the heart of the beautiful and trendy neighborhood of Miraflores. Amenities are at walking distance. Each floor is an independent apartment with its own entrance. This one is located on the third and top floor. I decorated it with a mixture of European and Peruvian styles in order to reflect my personality and my roots.
Miraflores is a safe and beautiful neighborhood of Lima to live in. The house is perfectly situated close to all amenities at walking distance (restaurants, shops, beaches, markets, museums...). Next door to the house there's a shop named 'Madre Natura' which sell all kind of natural and healthy food. They also have a peaceful patio full of trees and a relaxing fountain where one can drink fresh fruit juices made on demand.
