(Michael writing) Having wooed and married a Peruvian I have traveled to and rented apartments in Miraflores, Lima 14 times. This apartment was not only the best value by room and square footage, it has the bonus of being almost equidistant between Parque de Kennedy and Larco Mar, which has all the amenities a traveler needs. In either direction their are advantages: leave and turn right and your minutes from Parque de Amor, a juice stand, and parapente entertainment. Go left and you're moments away from a quality restaurant, supermarket and cigar store and much more. The apartment also has remarkably good water pressure in the toilet and shower and the shower water actually gets hot (not all Miraflores apartment showers do I can tell you from experience). Lastly, the owners were quick to communicate with questions and answers, even whilst I was in Lima. This apartment has my sincere recommendation.
I booked this property in spite of its having no reviews, as it offered a sizeable (3 full bedrooms) apartment located in Miraflores, suitable for my wife and myself and our two grown children. Sean, our host, responded promptly and was helpful in arranging the rental and figuring out logistics (how to get a ride to the airport, for example). Ismael met us at the apartment as we had arranged and was helpful in showing us around; when we asked for some extra towels by email he dropped them off in short order. The apartment has no heat and was a bit chilly (Lima doesn't get real warm in spite of its latitude), and Ismael also brought over a space heater which helped. The beds were comfortable and the apartment had ample space, and three bathrooms with showers. However, it was all a bit worn-- made one think of a budget motel, clean but not attractive. There is traffic noise (even on the ninth floor); I used earplugs and none of us had problems with the noise.. It was a short walk to either the beach/cliff area or to Parque Kennedy with shops and restaurants. All in all not bad but not luxurious, and reasonably priced.
