Heart of Miraflores, Lima - Peru, 1 Bedroom unit .
Additional Location Information
While in other districts you wonâ€™t find a real city center, Miraflores has actually two. The first starts at the Ovalo Miraflores (Miraflores Roundabout) / Parque Central (Central Park) towards Av. Larco and Av. Diagonal (Oscar. R. Benavides) to the Pacific Ocean. Here you find many nice cafes, bars, shops, restaurants, hotels and hostels.
Unfortunately only a few side streets are (semi) pedestrian zones like the famous Calle Pizza with its popular restaurants, bars and clubs, so traffic is as everywhere in Lima a real topic. Be careful when crossing any street, as it doesnâ€™t matter if you are in the right or have green on the traffic lights â€“ Here in Lima (Peru) it is very simple: First cars than pedestrians!
Enjoy the main parks in the center, Parque Central and Parque Kennedy. These two parks unite to a big one in the heart of Miraflores with the building of the Municipality and the church of Virgen Milagrosa in the middle. This is really â€˜theâ€™ place to experience the lifestyle of Miraflores.
The other part of the city center is located at the seafront of Miraflores running along the cliffs and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Along Miraflores â€˜maleconâ€™ (coastal strip/street) you find a small oasis with many pleasant parks joining each other to a green stripe following the coastal line. The view over the Pacific Ocean is stunning. On clear days you can see from the whole bay from Chorrillos in the south right up to Callao in the north.
These are some of the parks: The Parque Salazar with the famous modern shopping and entertainment center â€˜Larcomarâ€™, Parque del Amor (Park of Love), a beautiful park dedicated to all lovers, Parque El Faro with its lighthouse overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the best place to watch the famous paragliders of Miraflores, Parque Raimondi with its huge green areas inviting for a break and of course the Skate Park.
Other parks worth a visit are the Parque Reducto No. 2, established to pay homage to the heroes who tried to defend Lima from the invading Chilean troops during the War of the Pacific and the Parque de Tradiciones, dedicated to the great Peruvian writer Ricardo Palma.
Miraflores is also well known by surfers for its beaches on the Costa Verde (green Coast). Here the ocean provides perfect winds and waves for this fantastic sport. The rocky beaches can get quite crowded in the summer month, even if swimmers prefer the sandy beaches in the south.
Miraflores is as well characterized by a vivid cultural and artistic scene with numerous theaters, cinemas, cultural centers, art galleries and museums. The Museum Amano displays the probably best collection of textiles and ceramics of the Chancay Culture.
The Enrico Poli Museum however has gathered the most impressive private collection of objects of Inca and other Pre-Columbian cultures.
The mansion, where the famous Peruvian author Don Ricardo Palma, spent his last years, was preserved as a museum, the Casa Museo Ricardo Palma.
Another interesting museum is the â€˜Manos Peruanasâ€™ (Peruvian hands). It displays popular art of Peruâ€™s master folk artists.
The house of the historian RaÃºl Porras Barrenechea (Calle Colina 398) is now a research institute of the University of San Marcos and offers public lectures on a regular base. Inside the city hall you find an art gallery where exhibitions are regularly held.
The Centro Cultural Ricardo Palma (Cultural Center Ricardo Palma), the Alianza Francesa, the Centro Cultural Peruano Britanico and ICPNA - All have a busy program for all sorts of cultural events.
Of archaeological interest is the Huaca Pucllana, also known as Huaca Juliana. The archaeological complex was an administrative and ceremonial center of the Lima Culture, built around 500 AD. The complex houses the archaeological ruins itself, a small site museum, an area for workshops, a small souvenir shop and a very good restaurant.
And for all those who love shopping: Donâ€™t only wander around on Miraflores main shopping street the Av. Larco. Discover the small side streets, like the Calle Alcanfores or Av. La Paz with beautiful small shops that invite you to stroll around.
For your souvenir shopping there is no way around the Av. Petit Thouars (block 52 to 54), starting just one block from the Ovalo Miraflores (Miraflores Roundabout). Here you find the famous markets with arts and crafts gathered from whole Peru.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Es amplio, cÃ³modo y tenia todo lo necesario para pasar una estadÃa excelente. El personal fue muy atento y no tuve ninguna queja, las lunas anti ruido son un gran plus ya que estaba en una zona cÃ©ntrica pero no habÃa ruidos molestos. Sin duda volverÃa a alquilar este o cualquier departamento de apartPeruKeys.

Gracias Gino, esperamos tu visita en una prÃ³xima oportunidad.
An excellent choice, ideal in every way
Before viewing the department I knew exactly the area I wanted to stay in Miraflores and the location was ideal. It is easy walking distance to Larcomar (A mall and entertainment center overlooking the Pacific Ocean) in one direction and Parque Kennedy in the center of Miraflores in the other with everything you need in between. (Restaurants, bars, supermarkets, department stores, etc.)
From the first moment I walked into the department I was sold on it, the building is modern with 24 hour security at the entrance, the furnishing is excellent and new, it is very spacious for a one bedroomed apartment, and the cleanliness impeccable. Before viewing I had just one concern about the noise as it is located on a busy street but this was quickly dispelled after experiencing the effect of the double glazed sliding doors onto the balcony (in both the main area of the department and the bedroom). They did an excellent job of cutting out the street noise.
During my time in the department the owner was very helpful and always available with full contact details left in the department. Any query or need was quickly and efficiently dealt with which for me is a big plus. The weekly cleaning service was excellent with Wilder and amelia ensuring everything was just like new every week. Although there is so much to see and do in Miraflores and Lima as a whole, just staying in the department was a very pleasant experience with the excellent and comfortable furnishings, broadband internet and cable TV.
Walking down to Larcomar there is a series of well-maintained parks along the malecon overlooking the Pacific Ocean, each one with a different theme. This is ideal for a pleasant walk or run with no roads to cross once you get to the malecon.
All in all I would highly recommend this department and would love to stay again on my next visit to Lima

What you see is what you get.
I stayed in the Miraflores apartment for 3 months and thoroughly enjoyed my experience there. The apartment is just as it looks online: modern and clean. It easily felt like home. I entertained in the apartment frequently and my guests were likewise impressed. The kitchen is stocked with plenty of items so cooking and entertaining is possible.
The door staff was kind and helpful. Anytime I needed to communicate with the owner of the unit, the reply was prompt and professional. Request for service calls were also replied to promptly. The employees of the owner were courteous and professional.
I loved the area! Miraflores is the heart of activity in Lima. I could easily walk or catch a bus to anywhere I needed to go. Yoga studios, Spanish schools, stores, restaurants, parks, the ocean, LarcoMar, dance studios and grocery stores- everything in the neighborhood!
It is hard to say what I liked best - the modern apartment, entertaining and cooking, the door staff, the location all rank first with me. I will say that occasionally I could hear the upstairs neighbor walk with high heels but if it went of for hours, the would ask the door staff to call and it would stop.
I hope to return to Lima and hope to stay in this apartment.

My husband and I stayed 9 days in this lovely apartment. It is brand new with fine leather furniture, beautiful flooring and all the amenities anyone could need. It has Wi-Fi which worked great and I was able to work online while I was there. It is in a great location especially for the price! It is 2-3 blocks from LarcoMar Mall. An easy stroll to get there. This is a great area for shopping, entertainment and awesome restaurants. The staff from apart-Keys are wonderful, attentive and 100% available to any needs you may have. Lima is a very busy city and somewhat loud. Occasionally you could hear the traffic below but it was tolerable, especially for the price and location. There is a garage for parking along with 24 hour security. I recommend it highly!
Being Safe and Comfortable in Lima-Priceless!!
Going to another country is an exciting experience and Peru is no exception. When planning my trip, instead of staying in a pricey hotel room I decided to go with a vacation rental-Apart Peru Keys-Miraflores, Lima. (First time, I might add). It was really nerve-wrecking since I had booked the apartment one week before my arrival. I was not sure what to expect.
Needless to say, the apartment was exactly as depicted in the photos and webpage. The manager of the property is very courteous and has thought of every detail to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The rental is centrally located near the Larco Shopping Mall, beautiful parks overlooking the beach, Casinos, great dining, supermarkets, cash exchange locations, etc., etc. Just remember to close all the sliding glass doors to the beautiful balcony at night to ensure a good nights rest. Lima is a thriving city and the street noise starts early in the morning. Very minor detail, there are windows instead of an exhaust fans in the bathrooms that might carry a sound or two from another apartment.
Overall, I felt safe and right at home. Thinking about the experience, I wish I was there right now!! I loved it!

Leslie thanks for the reviews
The apartment was clean, safe and extremely spacious with a one bedroom, Its moderness is only matched by its ideal location, close to stores, restaurants, the beach and Larcomar. Most importantly the service is impeccable, questions get answered right away and everything is done in a prompt manner. I for sure will consider this apartment during my future visits to Peru.

We truly enjoyed our stay in this property
The apartment was exactly as advertised.
It is brand new, we found it very clean and tidy, and the decor was very cool.
It's in a fantastic neighbourhood, just a few blocks from restaurants, bars, and lots of shopping.
We truly enjoyed our stay and are hoping to return soon.
Thanks for everything.
