"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!!"Guest: 2ndHoneymoon Date of Stay: November 2014 Review Submitted: November 26, 2014View listing
"I have stayed in probably 6 or 7 different apartments in Lima, and this is one of the nicest. Great location in Miraflores across from the Canadian embassy. Walking distance to Kennedy park and all that entails as well as 2 blocks from Vivanda grocery store. Also within walking distance of one of my favorite restaurants in Lima, Panchita which is one of Astrid and Gaston's. The apartment is clean and well laid. Bedrooms and common areas are comfortable. The recently remodeled kitchen is very nice and pretty big compared to other place I have stayed. The best part of the apartment is the PRIVATE roof top terrace."Guest: David M.

"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."Guest: doc49 Date of Stay: October 2014 Review Submitted: November 16, 2014View listing
"Had a great experience in this condo. Location is excellent, less than 5 minutes from Larcomar and Larco st. Very modern and clean location. When we arrived one of the TVs wasnt working and Alfredo's sister brought us a new one just hours later. The condo is in a quiet street and has security 24/7. I would recommend this property to anyone that wants to stay at Lima. Alvaro M"Guest: Alvaro M. Date of Stay: November 2014 Review Submitted: November 27, 2014View listing
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.
