"When we first arrived at Rudy's apartment we knew right away we had made the right choice! After a whirlwind 2 week tour, it was such a welcome place to "come home to" for our remaining 10 days in Peru. We were met at the airport by Eduardo, and even though our flight was delayed, he waited for us to make sure we got safely to the apartment. When you book Rudy's property you also get the pleasure of meeting some of the nicest, kindest people... Roberto who was there to help us get settled, along with German who was very obliging in supplying a fan at my request and laundry soap so we could get a load of laundry on the go, which was a real PLUS after 2 weeks of travelling. And, of course, smiling Eduardo who also picked us up to get us back to the airport for our 2 am flight back to Canada. The apartment is so comfortable, and much larger than it appears in the photos. Rudy has made sure to include anything a traveller might need, right down to a hair blower, so no need to take up room in your luggage for that. The apartment is within walking distance of anything you could want, and we spent many enjoyable hours walking to and exploring the artisan markets, plus the parks that are so close! Don't miss Saturday and Sunday between 4 and 5 when the music starts and a whole lot of happy people start to dance! That was such a nice thing to watch! And there are so many restaurants you will have a difficult time to choose. It is also a beautiful walk to the Pacific and the malecon, and eventually you get to Larcomar, not to be missed.
Rudy phoned several times while we were there just to check how we were doing. How nice to pick up the phone and have a call from France... just for a chit chat. He also supplies a prepaid cell phone which we carried with us when we were out, in case of any kind of emergency. Thankfully we didn't need to use it but it was a comfort to have it. And of course, the Wifi at the apartment means you are never out of touch at all. Most mornings and evenings were spent sitting outside in our own little piece of paradise! The enclosed outdoor space is such a treat, as opposed to a high rise balcony! You will not be disappointed by renting this apartment. Rudy, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our stay in Lima so comfortable. You are a very lucky man to have such wonderful friends as Roberto, German and Eduardo! Please pass on our best regards. Sincerely, Tom and Jan Paas from Newfoundland, Canada"
