  • Quiet and Comfortable Even in Winter

    "We rented this property for a month. Our trip combined work (taxi to Lima twice a week) and vacation (family of 6). Punta Hermosa is a hot spot in the Peruvian summer--a popular place to enjoy the beaches, watch surfers, eat seafood, and relax. Many people in Lima found it odd that I would live there in August; however, it worked well being just off the Panamerican Highway. The house is as pictured, and all the facilities work fine. The deck is nice to watch waves, surfers, fishermen in small boats, and many birds. There is enough hot water for a few people to take showers in a row. The house is very convenient to the beach, and there are restaurants, and bodegas a short walk away. While the ocean was cold, my teenage children did go in one day, and spent a couple other days playing volleyball or sunning on the beach. Bright sunny days are rare this time of year, but they do happen. Jorge was extremely helpful with arranging taxis and giving advice about where to shop. Don't book your own taxi from the airport, especially one without GPS, without getting specific directions--better to let Jorge explain to the driver. One thing to be aware of is that the houses on the beach are not supplied with potable water by pipes: the cistern has to be filled from a truck at least once a week. The cost is low, and Jorge would call the truck for us, but I didn't plan ahead and ran out of water once. We traveled to do other sightseeing on weekends, and it was good to have this base of operations rather than checking into and out of hotels every week. The house was well-stocked with a supply of paper products, pans, basic cooking necessities, and towels. This whole area is behind multiple security stations along the roads, similar to a "gated community" in the US. Thus, while there are some dirt streets in town, it is a very safe area to go walking or jogging. One nice restaurant nearby is Don Angelo's Trattoria, with great desserts. If you're not in the mood for a huge meal, ask for the sandwich menu. There's a convenient minimarket next door where the proprietor speaks some English. We also tried other places with criolla "discount lunches" (different, limited menu each day), pollo a la brasa, pizza, or ceviche. If you're used to Peruvian food, and know what to order, any of them match up with what you'd get in Lima at similar places. Maybe the summer nightlife adds a little noise along with the scenery, but our stay was extremely quiet, as we had hoped."

  • Real Peru

    "This property is in an area that represents Peru. No tourists here. The location is excellent. A few blocks to square, flea markets, restaurants, and groceries. Property very secure. Great for families."

  • Great apartment in a great neighborhood

    "I really enjoyed staying at Briec's apartment. Really comfortable with great views. A good kitchen and nice bedrooms and bathrooms. The photos don't really do it justice. The area is really nice too. Right next to some nice parks and great restaurants and bakeries. About a 15-20 minute walk to central historic Lima. I was here for a month. I would rent again."

  • Wonderful stay in San Isidro

    "We travel to Peru several times a year and have stayed in various apartment rentals. This by far was one of our favorites and will most certainly be looking forward to booking it again. The apartment was tastefully decorated and the beds were very comfortable. All the amenities we could have asked for were there! The great thing about San Isidro is how quiet it is, and how safe it feels. We were able to walk to some of our favorite restaurants and the local super market. Can't wait to go back!"
