If you are looking for a vacation rental in one of the trendiest (and most Instagram worthy places) in Lima, here are some of our favorite options (in no particular order):
Airbnb Option 1: Great for a couple or young family of three
This cozy apartment if filled with light. Are you a fan of Scandinavian minimalism? Then you’ll love its fully equipped open kitchen and industrial details. And, if you are traveling with an infant or toddler you’ll be happy to know it also comes equipped with kids toys and books, kids cutlery and plates, and even a crib. How convenient is that?
Option 2: Three’s company with a queen size bed and a futon!
This lovely one-room apartment is right next to the neighboring district of Miraflores, and it can host up to three guests comfortably with its two-and-a-half bathrooms. The building also has a gym, a pool, and a laundry room. You might actually want to stay in!
Option 3: A stylish apartment decorated by a Peruvian artist
Patty will be your host in this artsy apartment located right next to the famous restaurant Central, number 1 in Peru and currently ranked in 6th place in The World’s 50 Best list. As you can see in the listing below, the apartment has everything you and two more people will need to feel right at home in Lima.
Option 4: Party of 4 on a budget
This apartment is a great alternative for a family or group of friends of 4 looking for a deal. It averages at around $20 per person a day! Plus, its modern, minimalist look will help you unwind after a full day of touring in the City of Kings. Oh! And it has a king size bed, which is not bad at all either!
Option 5: Two couples and a half
This apartment has a master bedroom with an en suite, a second bedroom with a twin bed, and a futon that can fit two people. The building also has a pool and a gym.
Why stay in an Airbnb in Barranco in the first place?
Airbnb can be a great option for travelers that plan to stay for a few days in one destination, as they offer more flexibility than hotels at a similar or lower price. Of course, hotels like the one’s Forbes listed recently are always great options if you have the budget, but getting an Airbnb apartment in Barranco can add some flavor to your stay in Lima and your overall experience in Peru.
