“Excellent value”
Reviewed 8 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

I write this review as I'm sitting in the apartment. We've been here for four days and have 10 days to go. The apartment isn't perfect, but it's an excellent value. It has two bedrooms, one with a comfortable full size bed, the other with two twins. The combined living and dining room has a sofa with a good-quality flat screen TV with an excellent cable TV connection that offers both CNN and ESPN, so I won't miss the Georgia-Alabama championship game tonight. Go Dawgs!!

The living room has another cluster with three solid easy chairs around a table, and a round dining table with six chairs. There's a small desk at the back perfect for my laptop, and wi-fi that really works well, something that I've found to be a problem in other vacation rentals outside the US. The kitchen/laundry comes very well equipped with a gas range, nice medium-sized refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, blender, coffee maker, set of dishes and pans, and silverware, in addition to a washer and dryer in good condition.

The location is excellent. It's in a quiet and relatively safe subdivision near the Plaza Primavera mall. Safety on the street is an issue in Lima, so this is a real plus. The mall is a five-minute walk, especially after you find the walkways between the houses that cut a couple of minutes off using the streets. There are several restaurants near the mall, though the south side of Angamos across from the mall is a bit dicey. The north side, the area inside the mall, the restaurants, the movie theater, and the huge Metro supermarket are all nice and safe, though the mall does get quite crowded on the weekends. There are also some very nice restaurants within walking distance near the corner of San Luis and Angamos, five short blocks from the apartment. About five short blocks to the north is a fabulous seafood restaurant, Punto Azul, that is very reasonable given the quality and quantity of the food, but it's only open noon to 4 PM daily. A short taxi ride north along Aviacion will take you to a bunch of nice restaurants that you'll find listed and reviewed on Yelp.

Taxis are readily available on the nearby streets, and a $3 taxi ride will take you to all the tourist haunts in Miraflores. Frankly, I think San Borja is safer than Miraflores, besides being less expensive, so it makes this place a really good place to stay. There's a high-speed elevated bus line (linea uno) with a station right outside the mall that takes you up close to the tourist sites in downtown Lima. Rather than taking a taxi all the way downtown, take the comfortable buses up to the Presbitero Maestro station, then a $2 taxi ride to the interesting sites in downtown Lima.

The only negative to this well-appointed apartment is that Lima is very densely populated and the walls are thin, so you get noise and sometimes cooking odors from surrounding apartments. It's not a big problem, though. The apartment and the area are actually quieter than most other areas of Lima, and the noise levels drop at night, so my wife and I have slept very comfortably even with the windows open. The apartment is not air conditioned, but even now in the middle of summer, the fans in every room keep you comfortable, as it doesn't get that hot here.

The caretaker, Carlos, and his family live in the upstairs apartment, so they are available to help. Carlos is very willing, personable and reliable, and the lady who owns the apartments, Mrs. Burch, is also a very fine and helpful person.

We very much like this place, plan to reserve it again for our annual visits to Lima, and can recommend as an excellent choice compared to the other options available. It's quite large compared to even a big hotel room, and at a much better rate.
