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 on the top floor of the house. The decoration reflects my personality and my roots: Peruvian and European.

Rudy purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Rudy chose Surquillo

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.

Excellent location and host

The location couldn't be better! The host was helpful and easy to communicate with. Everything was very clean, comfortable, quiet and private. Very reasonable price. An ideal apartment in Lima.

Home away from home !

  • 5 of 5

I had the good fortune to stay at Rudy's place in Miraflores, I am so glad we found it, it is central to a couple of good busy centres that will provide all you need to make your stay in Lima comfortable. Rudy's place is well set up attended by some good local people who have been doing this a long time and know exactly what is needed to keep things running smoothly. It proved to be a great base for me in my business endeavours and Rudy has a local driver who runs a very reliable service to take you wherever you need to go with local anecdotes and information as needed. I hope to stay here again whenever I'm in town.

Peaceful and comfortable, close to all amenities in Miraflores

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here while we were in town on business for ~2 weeks and it was ideal. A few blocks from major grocery stories, great restaurants, and tourist spots, but just far enough away that it is peaceful and quiet. It was the beginning of summer, so we enjoyed drinking coffee, having cocktails, and eating dinner on the roof deck. Rudy was an terrific host- followed up with us during our stay and afterwards. Everything was very easy and his business associates made our arrival and departure very straightforward and simple. Unlike other listings, the apartment itself is exactly as it is pictured. It is comfortable, well-appointed, and spacious. It even came with a French press for coffee! I hope to stay there the next time I am in town. *****

Tranquilo in Miraflores

  • 4 of 5

A nice apartment located near the Ovalo Gutierrez, close to restaurants, transportation, local food shops and a super market. The place is quiet and relaxing on a low traffic side street. Nice, safe, well maintained, and secure. I recommend this for travelers who would like a little different stay than being in a hotel.

Well located quiet and relaxing home...

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I had an extensive tour of South America.. coming to the appartement was like coming home...everything was clean and inviting...the pick up to and fro (organised by Rudy) the airport by friendly and helpful Willy was much appreciated and so easy . Upon arrival Rudy rang us from France to make sure all was well...The apartment is lovely and in an ideal location to explore Miraflores and the rest of Lima. The very large verandah was much enjoyed...Rudy is an excellent host and prior to our trip forwarded us some information on Lima attractions and restaurants, also gave us additional information about the area... a local mobile phone and wifi was included...we enjoyed the pleasant walk to the at Wong 10mn away.. lovely food accross the street at Xin Xing Chinese restaurant and others at walking distance... this is the first time ever that I used a rental home and I would not hesitate to recommend this appartement to anyone. A very good beginning to any holidays... Thanks so much Rudy, you are indeed an extraordinary host!!!
