About Zonia Borda

Why Zonia Borda chose Lima

Family stay in Barranco, Peru.
Everything went great with the booking and the stay. Zonia is a very responsive manager. Barranco is a great place to stay with sights, bohemian wall art, great restaurants and bars. Thanks for a great stay.
Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us. Best zonia
Big, newer flat with lovely ocean views!
This is a large flat in a newer building situated just off the ocean in Barranco. It has lovely ocean views from inside. It has a doorman 24-7 and we felt very safe and secure. The elevator is a clean, newer commercial model with a direct private entrance into the flat itself. The two bedrooms are at opposite ends, which is great for privacy. It also has a large washer and dryer which we found to be very helpful after traveling through the various climates in Peru. I noticed that the owner keeps videos, books, games and toys in the unit which is ideal for a family staying in the property. I would add to Americans, be prepared for no heat in the flat. I believe this is very typical for Peru as we only encountered heating once in a hotel in Cusco, which was provided from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM only. None of the other hotels or lodges we stayed in provided any heat source either. Otherwise, this condo is large, in a very nice location within walking distance to restaurants, shops and museums, and it is very secure. Uber works very well in Lima as well. There is a boardwalk along the cliffs that you can walk (or jog) looking out over the ocean and coastline. Overall a beautiful secure property for a great price!!
Nice view but lacking in many ways
We were disappointed to arrive to a very musty smell, no hot water, a fridge that appeared to not be working. As it turns out the apartment had not been prepared for guests. I assume it had not been rented recently and needed airing out. It smelled the whole five days we were there. It turns out the fridge was not plugged and we had to call Zonia to find out about the hot water,how to turn it on. It was nice to have a doorman but none of them spoke English so they were of little help.
Also it has been our past experience that instruction be left to provide directions to the closest supermarket and popular tourist sites that were nearby. It also been our past experience that basics like salt and pepper and dish detergent be present for the use of guests.
I do thank Zonia for ordering us a taxi to the airport on the last day. We brought no cell and we assumed we could just ask the doorman to order us one but he did not speak our language.
The location was good, but overall we were disappointed on many levels.
Thank you for your feedback. I am glad you were able to plug the refrigerator and turn on the water heater. I am sure it did not take that much effort.
I did assist you with these issues within minutes you reported.
I also met your request to arrange a taxi to pick you up to take you to the airport because you were not able to speak the language.
I am sorry to hear you are still disappointed with the level of service.
For your information we provide only accomodation.
City tours or advise on places to visit can be easily found by searching the internet or by visiting the tourist center.
Guests normally arrange a taxi on their own.
I was surprise to hear that you expect it us to arrange the taxi and also to make sure that they will arrive on time for you.
I want to thank you for choosing to stay with us and I wish you a safe journey back home.
Loved staying at your Beautiful apartment. It had everything we needed
Zonia and her Mother made sure that we had everything we needed at the apartment. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and it was truly a home away from home.
We would certainly recommend your apartment to anyone we know that would be going to visit Peru. Thank you Zonia and your Mother for making our stay there very pleasant. October 2018
Excellent apartment . Excellent customer service.
I cannot compliment this apartment enough. Perfect English from the owner and her mother. Fantastic service. Fantastic location, quiet, clean and quality fittings. This is the only place to stay if you want quality in Barranco. Thank you so much for making my holiday perfect.
We are so glad that you had a comfortable stay and we will be delighted to have you again in the future. Thank you both. Zonia
