Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I'm a former reporter of The Associated Press in Washington, DC, on early retirement. I worked on assignment in more than 30 countries so I know international places, people, hotels - and of course what travelers look for while on a trip. That may give you a clue about the strong connectivity in place in the apartment – just to start. If you are a business person, a reporter or tourist coming to Lima on assignment or for pleasure I can even provide you some contacts for your events in Peru and, of course, this beautiful apartment to enjoy a peaceful and safe stay in a beautiful area in Lima. If you are also concerned about trust on homeowner please book in confidently - I have gotten clearance from major agencies in Washington including a hard pass to the White House.

Why the Owner Chose Lima:
I bought this street view apartment because it's in the middle of everything. You won't need to ask for places because you would probably see them and walk toward to. Look for more details at www.alcanfores.com.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Just 1 block from Larco Ave., and 0.5 to 3 blocks from top class restaurants, pubs, casinos, bars, boutiques, drug stores, shopping malls and everything else.
