  • Thoroughly Enjoyed

    "My wife and I spent about two weeks in the 4th floor apartment. Jay was very helpful in the lead-up to our trip, providing email advice on dealing with the Lima layover and the abrupt change in altitude. The apartment worked great for us. We wanted a home base from which to explore Cusco and the surrounding countryside. We walked over much of the city and up into the hills to the north. Never once felt threatened. (Taxis are also cheap and abundant.) The kitchen has a nice refrigerator and the basics with which to cook. A pretty conventional Supermercado is a few blocks away. If you want a real experience (and some delicious avocados, among other foodstuffs) visit the Mercado San Pedro early in the day. Yaqui is a gem. She provides a nice breakfast each morning at an agreed-on time and does a great job showing the guests through the local breakfast cuisine. Rut checked in on us at the beginning and about every other day to say hi, answer any questions, and arrange any tours we desired. The apartment is a great place by itself, but Jay, Yaqui, and Rut are what make it special. Highly recommended."

  • Great spot to stay in Miraflores!

    "Found Hugo on VRBO and it was very easy to schedule our time at the apartment and he is very flexible on arrival times and payment. We ended up on a bus from Paracas to Lima later at night so his flexibility on payment the next day was huge so we could just get settled in and rested up before finding an ATM or Bank. It's in a great spot in Miraflores a few steps from great restaurants - close enough to a main street to find taxis but not too close to hear any road noise. Laundry in unit was great since we'd been traveling already almost two weeks when we arrived. Coming home with all clean clothes is great! Always responsive to email, Hugo answered all questions very quickly. The apartment had everything and more for our stay plenty of space with separate bedrooms, TV room, computer, kitchen and laundry rooms along with a nice bathroom with a tall shower head. Highly recommend this as a great place to stay!!"

  • Great Apartment for Families. Super-clean, super-convenient, super-affordable.

    "My family of 5 stayed here for 3 nights in late September 2014. We are three adults, one teen and one tween. The photos on VRBO do not do this apartment justice - it is far more spacious than it appears. Amenities are excellent, just what you need for a short or long stay - microwave, coffee pot, toaster-oven, full sized fridge, and laundry-sink. The beds had down comforters, extra pillows and one extra blanket. Three bathrooms meant that we never had to vie for first-place in the shower-line. And hot water was plentiful, when it did get cool (after 3 generous showers), it heated up quickly. The grocery store Vivanda is a short 7-10 minute walk away. There are great restaurants and bars even closer. We loved that this place was within walking distance of everything we wanted to do in Lima (we just started an 11-month trip around the world, so we planned on sticking to Miraflores). We ate at Las Brujas de Cachiche (excellent!) took a 3-hour bike tour with BikeToursOfLima, and attended a chocolate making class at the Choco Museum. Unfortunately, our son was sick while we were in Lima, but there was an amazing, bilingual, very reasonably priced clinic also within walking distance of the apartment. We had a few suggestions we sent privately to Manuel that will make it even better than it already is for long-term travelers who plan on cooking more often than eating out. That being said, I strongly recommend this apartment for families. Truly 2-thumbs-up."

  • Excellent choice for staing at Sacred Valley and visiting Machu Picchu.

    "We (2 families) stayed at Villa Runa for 3 days. Staying at Villa Runa was one of the best choices we made while visiting Peru. Everything went smoothly from the time we arrived at the Cusco airport to driving back to Cusco three days later. A driver was arranged to pick us up from the airport and then we had dinner at the villa that evening. The drive from Cusco airport to the Villa is a little over an 1hr. The second and third days, the same driver took us to places around/in Sacred Valley. The Villa is nicely situated just right for such excursions. The third day we left our luggage at the Villa, the same driver gave us a ride to the train station at 4:30am and we took an early train (5am) to Machu Picchu to climb Huayna Picchu at 7am. At the end the day we were again picked up from the train station and Ferdinand drove us to Cusco. The villas are nice, clean, safe and well decorated. Breakfast is included and cooked right in the villa. Nothing beats waking up to the smell of fresh coffee and having breakfast in your pajamas. We really enjoyed our stay at the villa and we highly recommend it to everyone."

Peru Travel Tips

Attractions and Activities at Peru Vacation Rentals

When traveling to Peru, it is a good idea to decide what you really want to see and plan your travels around that. There are so many amazing attractions that you may get sidetracked and miss out on some of the best sites. Most people start their sightseeing in Lima. Lima is Peru's cultural center and home to some fantastic museums. To get to Machu Pichu, Peru's most famous landmark, you need to fly to Cuzco. From there, you can embark on a multi-day trek up to Machu Pichu or you can take a day trip up there by bus. It is advisable to book an early morning tour as by midday the site is often swarming with tourists which in a way spoils the ambiance of this mountain sanctuary. To experience the Amazon jungle, take a flight to Iquitos. From there, you can embark on a jungle-trekking excursion. There are also many rivers in Peru that offer excellent whitewater rafting.

Visitors to Peru Condos

Peru has a wealth of attractions that can capture the interest of almost every traveler. Peru is most famous for its Inca ruins, in particular Machu Pichu. Each year thousands of tourists venture from Cuzco to visit the ancient site. The Andes provide excellent trekking opportunities and in recent years, many mountain biking tours have started which traverse the mountain regions. Mountaineers are attracted to the challenging peaks. Nature enthusiasts can enjoy the jungles of the northern regions. Peru also has some beautiful beaches that attract sun lovers from around the globe.

Getting to Peru Beach Houses

The main airport in Peru is the Jorge Chavez International Airport which is located in Lima, the country's capital city. The airport is the primary inbound and outbound hub for Peru and provides domestic links to other cities such as Cuzco, Iquitos, Pucallpa and Ariquipa in the south. There are frequent international flights to Lima from most major cities in North, South and Central America. There are also direct flights that operate from London and Amsterdam. If you cannot find a direct flight to Lima, you may consider a flight routing that takes you via one of the other South American travel hubs such as Sao Paolo or Caracus. Once in Peru, it's best to fly to your domestic destination. Road transfers can be lengthy and have many delays. There are some regional trains but they are not really suited for tourists. In the cities, you can get around using the local taxi services. Private cabs tend to be more reliable than the public yellow cabs. Taxis are not metered and it is advisable to negotiate the fare before departing.

Best Time of Year to Visit Peru

Peru has a varied landscape, ranging from the high Andes in the south and central regions to the tropical rainforests of the Amazon basin in the northeast. The climate is equally varied and the time of year that you choose to travel will depend largely on your interests and the activities you want to participate in. If you plan to visit the beaches around Lima or the historic sites of Machu Pichu, the summer months are the best time of year to visit. If you plan on doing a trekking excursion, most run throughout the year in the lower altitudes. Alpine treks tend to favor the colder winter months when the peaks are more stable. The jungle regions can be visited from May to November. From December to April, heavy rains are experienced which makes getting around difficult.
