Paola and Tom arranged a taxi to pick me up at the airport. On my arrivall, I was greeted by Paola and Tom. Later that evening, I was introduced to the children. They took me for a long walk and showed me important places like the restaurants and malls. They both spent a lot of time with me during my stay. They also arranged my day trip to the Colca canyon. On the last day, they accompanied me two places i have never heard of for an excellent view of Arequipa. I learnt a lot about the district of Cayma with its history. I visited the monastry and the Cathedral and most of all they introduced to a restaurant that served Cuy!. I had a great time. They are a happy loving family and great hosts.
Me and my husband very enjoyed to stay with their family, they are really care of you, treat you like as family, they make you love Arequipa. Lovely family in lovely city.
We have been travelling several months in South America as part of our sabbatical year and our stay with Tom & Pao’s family was our top favorite!
From the moment of entering the door you become part of their caring, funny and good humored family. We stayed four weeks as part of a Spanish course and came back later in our trip for another two weeks, as we missed it so much. Two small but comfortable rooms with a shared bathroom are set on the top floor, where you will also find a nice terrace with spectacular views on the surrounding volcanoes. Downstairs is the cozy living and eating area where we spent many precious moments, cooking, playing games, singing, dancing and learning so much about Peruvian life and food.
The house is located in the beautiful district Cayma, close to Plaza Cayma, safe and quiet and walkable to the city center.
