While in other districts you won’t find a real city center, Miraflores has two. The first starts at the Ovalo Miraflores (Miraflores Roundabout) / Parque Kennedy (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.
Enjoy the main parks in the center, Parque Central and Parque Kennedy. These two parks unite together to form 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 ‘the’ 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 ‘malecon’ (coastal strip/street) you find a small oasis with many pleasant parks joining each other to form a green stripe following the coastal line. The view over the Pacific Ocean is stunning. On clear days you can see 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 ‘Larcomar’, 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 ‘Manos Peruanas’ (Peruvian hands). It displays popular art of Peru’s master folk artists.
The house of the historian Raúl 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: Don’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...Read more

Great location, great views, great rentor. A very full featured three bedroom apartment that really does have all you need for a short or long stay. Close to everything, it really is my "home away from home" when I visit Lima 2-3 x per year. Is everything perfect? Nearly so, and the few things that weren`t, were remedied promptly with energy and an a smile. The owner is sincerely interested in you having a hassle- free and fun stay in Miraflores.
"Amazing penthouse property in the best location!"

A group of 6 of us stayed at this property and loved it. The property itself is super nice and we were so relieved (after doing the Inca Trail + Machu Picchu + Amazon Jungle) to have unlimited hot water, washer/dryer, and all other amenities!
We especially appreciated the owner. He was there upon our arrival (no waiting time at all) and gave us a walkthrough of the penthouse. Additionally, he gave us recs on which areas we should check out for shopping, dinner, nightlife, etc. Upon check out, the owner went out of his way to coordinate/negotiate last minute taxis for our big group.
It was a pleasure to have you and your family as our guests!

Couldn't have been better!!! The rooftop deck had stunning views of the sunsets and of the entire city. The bed's were very comfortable and the place was very clean when we arrived. Plenty of towels to keep fresh and having a washer/dryer was really nice. The area was very safe and a short walk to some great restaurants, grocery store and parks. Ed was a great host and was a really great guy in general to deal with, very accommodating. If I ever visit Lima again I would definitely stay there! We spent most of our time at the condo having Pisco sours on the rooftop! Thanks Ed

We spent a week in January in the perfect place in Miraflores, split by a trip to Machu Picchu . The apartment is located right in the middle of everything- we could walk to restaurants, ancient ruins, parks, shopping and bodegas. Having a kitchen available was a plus, as was more than one bathroom. We were treated to killer views from the terrace, the sunsets are unbelievable! But most of all, Eddie and Dennise were great. One of our group was late reaching Lima and had missed her flight to Machu Picchu-- he made sure she was taken care of, treating her like family. We would love to visit Peru again, and a stay here would be a must.
"A great experience with absolutely no negatives!"

As a frequent traveller who uses apartment vacation rentals, it is extremely rare to find a situation in which there isn't at least one problem with it. Well, in this apartment I have found such a place. The location, in the center of Miraflores, the nicest part of Lima, couldn't be better. The apartment was clean with plenty of room, comfortable beds, and a very cool rooftop terrace for parties, barbeques, romance or sunbathing. The owner responded to all questions and issues within minutes. I will definitely stay here again.

I've stayed at this apartment several times. I go to Lima for business. It is very convenient, close to all the most important places in Lima. It is very comfortable and has nice views of the city. The owner is very nice and reliable and always keeps the apartment in great condition. I recommend this place for anyone traveling to Lima.

This was a very conveniently located apartment.A coat of paint on the walls is very much needed.Overall ok . Noise level is high on the side of master bedroom. ( street traffic).
Not luxurious but comfortable.
Thank you for your response! Both Dennise & I agreed with your thoughts and have recently initiated some major changes! We have since had the wood floors throughout the penthouse refinished. New furniture in the dining room, repainted the apartment. We now feature Rosen Mattresses in the two primary bedrooms as well as 400-500 thread count imported bed linen. If you look at the new photo's you will see what we have done for the rooftop terrace. After all the the views from up there are nothing short of Spectacular and the reason this is the "Most Coveted Rental in Peru"!

Great two level penthouse in excellent location. The rooms are a bit small and as with most apartments in Lima the windows do not keep out street noise because they are single pane and don't close with a tight seal. Because Lima get's near zero rain each year and the temperatures are relatively mild, windows are like this in most homes and appartments. In a busy part of town like Miraflores, you get a lot of street noise except between Midnight and 6 am. There was some issue with the wi-fi but the owner was great about responding to my call for help and he walk through the process to get it to work. For a place that is fairly expensive, the bedding and pillows were not quite as nice as I would have wanted but everything was clean and certainly acceptable.

We stayed in this penthouse for a week. It was very comfortable and we appreciated the internet service and american TV for our teenagers. The location is great for shopping in a large mall or in local stores. It is also located near restaurants and the grocery store. We felt safe waling in the evening without concern. The owner was a very gracious host and helped whenever we had questions.We would stay at this location in the future. Thanks Eddie.

Great location,great views and the owners were a pleasure to deal with. I had an early flight (arrived 4:30am) and Ed was there at 6am to let me in and show me around. Great restaurant next door that delivers! Spent many an romantic evening drinking wine and watching the Sunsets over the Pacific ocean.

I have had the pleasure of staying at this apartment on several occasions.It was clean,comfortable and beautifully furnished. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. The view's from the terrace were to die for.I have recommended it to all my business associates as it is about a 1/3 the price of a suite at the Marriott and a lot more private!
