About Rudy

I was born in Lima where I grew up. I then moved to France to study. I live since in Paris for the last 30 years. Travelling is a passion to me. I go often to Peru for short periods and, when possible, to other countries. I love being in my house in Lima. It's a typical 3 story Miraflores' house full of charm, located in the heart of the beautiful and a trendy area. Amenities are at walking distance. Each floor is an independent apartment with its own entrance from the street. This one is located in the ground floor. The decoration reflects my personality and my roots: Peruvian and European.

Rudy purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Rudy chose Lima

Miraflores is a safe and beautiful neighborhood of Lima to live in. The house is perfectly situated close to all amenities at walking distance (restaurants, shops, beaches, markets, museums...). Next door to the house there's a shop named 'Madre Natura' which sell all kind of natural and healthy food. They also have a peaceful patio full of trees and a relaxing fountain where they serve great fresh fruit juices.

What makes this apartment unique

Walking the streets of the area is extremely pleasant. One is surrounded by a very friendly atmosphere, old fashion typical houses and charming people. I like having lunch or dinner at one of the many fish restaurant at La Mar street and drinking a fantastic Pisco-Sour at the bar of La Gloria restaurant. The best.

MiraFlores is a great choice

  • 4 of 5

This condo is super nice, clean and centrally located. Rudy was very helpful and his associate met us at the home upon arrival, even though we got in at 11:00pm. The information shared about our stay made it super easy to acclimate to the Peruvian way. With two single women being in a foreign country, at no time did I feel unsafe. The price is perfect for the accommodations with a world of restaurants and the beach within walking distance.

The only caveat to a perfect vacation is that the home is located next door to a new 6 story apartment building currently under construction, and the contractors arrive timely each day with sledge hammers and jack hammers at 8am. The first day we didn't care since we were up so late, and was able to sleep in regardless of the noise. But, as the week went on and by my last day I was irritated and ready to go home to my own peace and quiet. For the money, and if you are an early riser, this place is awesome. If not, then I would wait the year that it will take to get back to that adorable neighborhood I envisioned it was prior to the new apartment building.

Owner's Response: I'm really sorry that you had this noise inconvenience. The new building next door is finished by now and I really thought there wasn't noise anymore when you were there. Usually my apartment is a haven of peace in a noisy city. If you ever come back to Lima you'll be a special guest. I apologize again for a problem I can't control. Best regards, Rudy

Extraordinary, really!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I stayed at Rudy's Chiclayo apartment... and I will do it again.

Rudy treats this apartment like he would treat his home, I suppose. It is well-equipped with a long-distant traveler in mind. You don't need to rush to a store to get started. He has a little bit of everything to get you started - oil to cook, salt-pepper, sugar, tea, etc. He even keeps a cell phone for you for local use. This makes one feel like you are home when you check-in. His crew keeps the apartment in a spick and span condition with clean sheets, towels, soaps, and cleaners... these may seem like small things, but I have stayed in other apartments where I have had to visit the nearest store for basic needs.

The décor is pleasant and inviting. The picture window with the garden outside is refreshing and soothing. The kitchen appliances and utensils and gadgets are great quality. He even has a washer/dryer, if you need one. It is a "fully furnished" and "well-appointed" apartment. (Read Tom and Jan's review above).

The location is very good too... nice neighborhood and a quiet street, walking distance from the ocean-side and the exciting area of Mira Flores. Less than 10 soles will get you to any good restaurant in Mira Flores or San Isidro, and also to the Larcomar ocean-front mall, etc.

Above all, Rudy offers a personal touch by making sure you are comfortable and happy by calling from France (where he lives) . His three friends Eduardo, Roberto, and German, are obviously loyal to him as you'll see his hospitality through them... Eduardo will pick you and drop you to the airport and chat with you in interesting ways, Roberto will show you in and introduce the apartment details to you, and German will keep the place clean and bring you anything that you miss like an extra fan or a heater.

I couldn't praise this place more. Thank you, Rudy. The experience was extraordinary, really!

What a wonderful apartment in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

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 set-up, no hassle, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Rudy was accommodating and friendly from the start. His management crew were on time and the driver was at the airport despite my late arrival. Everything is as promised. Added bonus of washer/dryer and cell phone provided, you just add the minutes at a kiosk on the corner. You can walk to the beach/ocean and even to Larcomar if so inclined. Decent restaurants in the area and close enough to all Miraflores sites for no more than 8 soles.

Honest advertising and fair prices beat the local hotels.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

We were met at the airport by the driver and quickly taken to the condo. The place was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. The location was perfect and close to great restraunts and a large grocery store. The price was awesome and we would stay there again.

My wife and I spent two weeks in this paradise of an apartment. We couldn't have been more thrilled with the amenities, the location, and the attentive kindness of Rudy and his staff. We felt like we were at home. Don't hesitate to book this place for your stay in Lima! Like all of the other reviews you'll read here, this place is a classy retreat in the heart of a huge city. Find some peace. Book this property!!!
