  • A Great Place to Stay in Cusco

    "My husband and I stayed in one of these wonderful apartments for 6 nights (one night was an overnight in Aguas Calientes). The apartment itself is large, very comfortable, spotlessly clean and in a safe neighborhood. The breakfast each morning was perfect. Yacqui is a great cook -- her banana pancakes are the best! Jay arranged all of our tours including our tour to Machu Picchu and we were very pleased with the the quality of both the tours and the tour guides. We also had the use of a cell phone when we arrived which was definitely an added benefit. The washer and dryer are also a great addition. The apartment is about a twenty minute walk from the downtown area but the walk is pleasant and takes you through some authentic neighborhoods and past several handicraft markets. We spent our last day with Betty, Jay's mom, visiting a couple of museums, eating lunch in a restaurant for locals, and spending the evening watching Peruvian dancing. She is delightful and because she was born in Cusco, she gave us a great perspective on the city. We enjoyed our stay in Cusco very much and would love to return someday. We would definitely stay in this apartment again."

  • Nothing shy of Perfection!

    "From the moment we opened the door to this bright, beautiful, and airy home we were in awe. We spent two weeks traveling around Peru, and were looking for a quite, peaceful stay in Miraflores. This place is it! The views from the balcony are spectacular, and in the mid-afternoon you will even get para-sailers going right by! The actual location is right above the ocean, and below is a park that also proved to be fun to just watch. You are close to everything, and most likely a quick cab ride away to just about anything you can dream up. I can't say anything negative about this experience. The doorman- Andre was EXTREMELY helpful! We of course would have questions about our directions, and he typically would walk us outside and point in the right direction. If you needed a Taxi he would ensure there was one there for you. Cici, the owner, was always extremely prompt on her email responses, and questions that I had about the place. She said I need not worry about anything except bringing my luggage- and she was right! They have EVERYTHING at the house, and made sure everything was perfect for our check-in/check-out. We also arranged a pick-up for our departure to the airport in a Land Cruiser-- very spacious, clean, and on time (actually early, which ended up being helpful since the airport was swamped that day!). My husband and I frequently use HomeAway/VRBO/AirBnB and we were convinced this was the best place we have ever stayed. If you want to get away from it all, listen to the ocean waves crashing day and night, and try all the amazing restaurants that Cici recommends, then this place is home! We are already looking into dates to come back with some friends. Thanks again Cici!"

  • What a wonderful apartment in a perfect location!

    "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"

  • Perfect Location and very specious

    "We rented two apartments from the owner in the same building, on the same floor, for our group of nine. This was the perfect set-up for us. The apartment is well equipped with kitchen appliances and a washer and dryer. One of the best things about the apartment is the ability to call home, long distance, free of charge! Shopping and restaurants are within easy walking distance and the location is safe and on a quiet street. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 are that there were several minor things in the apartment in need of repair, burned out lightbulbs, and and the cleaning done before our arrival was mediocre. Overall we enjoyed our visit and had an excellent time in Miraflores."

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.
