Home in Lima
This charming casita feels like home the minute you walk through the door. The colorful and tasteful décor in true Peruvian style adds to the color and vibrancy of the city. Patty's friendly and helpful welcome cements you to this place. You will greatly enjoy it. Walking distance from many of the local attractions and some of the many great restaurants found there, it is also a step away from the noise and bustle of the city.
It was a pleasure having you. Thank you so much for your words!
We loved our time in Miraflores. Location is great, few blocks from the beach. Lovely home, peaceful
We enjoyed the home very much. Comfortable, peaceful and close to everything. Kennedy Park, restaurants and the beach. Our host Patty is delightful and very helpful. Carlos the owner is very professional and easy to work with. We love the house very much and plan to return next year. The location is excellent and the neighborhood is the best in Miraflores. 🌞�
THANK YOU SO MUCH DOUGLAS. WE WERE THRILLED TO HAVE YOU AGAIN IN MY CASITA!
Superior in every regard
Reasons to stay here:
1. You can actually place toilet paper in the toilet rather than in a basket. The 4-star hotel we stayed at for the two previous nights did not have this option.
2. Instant and excellent wifi.
3. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, dining room and living room and pleasant patio - accommodations even better than the pictures. Washer and dryer were quite helpful as we'd been traveling over a week. The on-site housekeeper Patricia is an angel in disguise. The art work and 15-foot high ceilings add to the atmosphere.
4. Very safe neighborhood, with excellent restaurants at a variety of price points.
5. You can take Uber, which is readily available, anywhere, at prices so low you would think it's a typo.
6. Pleasant 5-block walk to a marvelous well-used park that overlooks the ocean. Beautiful views; if you want to swim...long walk and cold water and we didn't do it (visited in January, their summer).
7. We walked to major shopping streets and craft markets (it never rains in Lima, who knew) and took Uber to Central Lima etc for other sections of the city. Staying in the Miraflores section was a providentially wise and excellent choice.
8. Stay at a hotel if you want to spend more money for fewer amenities. See reason #1 above.
Thank you so much for your kind review. You also were a great guest and It will be a pleasure to host you again.
Great place: Great location
We had a wonderful stay here. The house is comfortable and commodious with room after room spilling from one to another. The structure's age, and the architectural detail accompanying it were delightful. The furnishings are pleasant and the modern necessities of WiFi, phone, and TV, not to mention plumbing, were in top order. The kitchen while adequate to our needs: coffee making, simple breakfast and snack preparations might prove difficult for complex meal preparations. This home has personality and character which makes you feel like you are actually part of the Lima environment, a real limeña.
Patty the caretaker is a treat--social and friendly--she is eager to assist with any needs that arise without being intrusive. We hardly saw her, but when we needed assistance or information she was available and always helpful.
Lastly the location is excellent. One is within easy walking distance to Parque Kennedy and all the activity of Miraflores's heart: the restaurants, bars, ice cream shops, casinos, stores, supermarkets and clubs while being separated from the hubbub. Also accessible by foot were the parks along the coast, Larcomar, the shopping center on the cliffs, and two Metropolitano stations.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review and hope to have you back anytime you come back to Lima!
You were a great guest!!!
Thank you again for staying at my home :)
Great home to stay at in the center of Miraflores
We started a longer Peru trip in Lima. This was the first place our family of 3 stayed at. In short, it was conveniently located close to the beach, close to Kennedy Park, and close to many great restaurants at different price levels. Carlos did a great job preparing us for the trip and Patty, the housekeeper, supported us well during the stay. The house is spacious, well equipped, very quiet, and nicely decorated. We would stay there again without any doubts.
THANK YOU SO MUCH TORSTEN AND HOPE TO SEE YOU BACK SOON :)
Great Property, Great Location and Excellent Staff
The location of property is excellent in Miraflores for what we needed, the house is comfortable and Patty the lady of the staff is an excellent person. And Carlos, always aware that we had a soft and easy arrival. Thanks very much Carlos and Patty.
IT WAS OUR PLEASURE TO HAVE YOU DAVID AND HOPE YOU WILL STAY W US AGAIN
