Second Home Peru - My Hotel in Barranco, Lima

That was the name of my hotel in Lima – Second Home Peru – and I was really happy to call it home for three nights. After being collected at Lima airport by Fernandez, the resident driver, I was whisked through a fairly uninspiring route along the coastline to this hotel in the
Barranco district. What a find! My love for statues and …

"Second Home" This is our hotel overlooking the Pacific. It is run by the son and daughter of the famous artist, Victor Delfin, who lives and works here too. His paintings and sculptures are all over the place and we feel a bit as tho we are staying in a museum. We have cocktails on the balcony of Boo and Carl's room as it is the very best room in …

... recklessness or somewhere in between. The bus was really comfy and each seat had its own entertainment system like on planes! Which was great! But the drive was 22 hours long, the food was truly awful (especially after the culinary wonderland we had just left) and the route was mountainous, complete with hairpin turns and endless altitude changes. So even after all the amazing meals in Lima, I got to Cusco hungry, grumpy and exhausted. (Ad was less grumpy and exhausted, but still pretty ...

Too much to digest the beauty I have seen

... the whole system of tour operators is running smoothly, I have no idea who thought of it. There are a lot of different firms that "organize" individual tours like mine, a bus or taxi picks me up and brings me to a certain point. There I find another bus with a guide and other people and we start the specific tour. The system works well but when one is traveling alone like I am now, it is not possible to make friends. But till now I managed well and there were always some really ...

... places in LA where dogs can go off-leash so it was full of people walking their dogs. Apparently it's where loads of celebrities go to exercise but I didn't see any. After that it was a quick shower before heading out on a walking tour of Beverley Hills. Most people do a tour of celeb homes in a mini-van but this one was cheaper. It was also way better based on what I saw. Our guide, Adam, was this hilarious guy who was constantly taking the mickey out of Hollywood, ...

    Wow! This hotel/bed and breakfast is outstanding. Home of a famous artist/sculptor, his artwork fills every part of this gorgeous hotel. Stunning ocean views from most rooms, exquisite furnishings, friendly helpful staff and manager and a beautiful breakfast room. My most enjoyable stay - ever.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Second Home Peru Lima

    Artistic Treasure

    from

    We have just completed a two month trip in South America and ended our trip in Peru.

    We used Second Home Peru as a staging place both at the beginning and end of the trip. Although you think you are dealing with Lima, you are actually dealing with Carlos in New York. He ensured that we were met at the airport by Mr Fermin. It is essential that you use this sevice since the hotel is located in Barranco and , believe or not, many cab drivers do not know that area.

    We were met by the charming and eclectic Lilian Delfin. During our two stays, she was very hepful in restaurant selection, site visits and even in Taxi hailing. The taxi issue is not trivial- safety- and her help was appreciated. On our departure day, Lilian allowed us to use the room at no extra charge until we caught our taxi at 1900. Not many places would do that.

    We stayed in in a seaside room that looked exactly like the website. The rooms were immaculate, modern and designed with a certain flare. The views of the ocean were spectacular.

    The house itself is an old mansion with pieces of art on display everywhere ( and I do mean everywhere). Area is very quiet.

    Breakfast was very basic but acceptable.

    Highly recommended

    A beautiful oasis

    from

    Stay here if you want to be surrounded by art and lulled by ocean breezes. The rooms have high ceilings, wood floors and comfortable beds. Lilian is an amazing person who takes care of her guests and she made our stay memorable. Stay away from the madness of Central Lima or Miraflores and relax at this oasis in Barranco.

    The art of Victor Delfin infuses every part of Second Home Peru. His paintings, sculpture, lighting and furniture are integrated into every part of the guest house, but it doesn't feel like an art gallery, it feels like home. Lilian has the spirit and creativity that make it work.

    It's cheap and easy to take a cab to any other area of Lima, but it's hard to leave this lovely, quiet neighborhood. There is a corner store a block away, an excellent cebicheria a couple blocks away and charming bars and restaurants. It's a perfect neighborhood for leisurely strolls.

    Second Home Peru will arrange for someone to pick you up at the airport. Arriving in Lima can be quite chaotic, so it's wonderful to have someone waiting for you.

    I can't recommend Second Home Peru more highly. Spend an extra day relaxing here. You won't regret it.

    Second Home, Peru

    from

    We stayed at Second Home Lima, Peru in Feb. 2006. Our room was wonderful, surrounded by original art and an amazing view over the Pacific. We enjoyed splendid sunsets and a glass of wine on the balcony. Lillian and her staff prepared great coffee and fresh rolls each morning. She was always willing to recommend restaurants and advise about travel. Fermin the taxi driver picked us up at the airport after midnight. Lima airport is amazingly busy late at night, so we appreciated this service. We feel happy recommending Second Home to anyone looking for an interesting and beautiful place to stay.

    Insider Tip

    from

    Second time in Second Home, this time with my entire family who absolutely adored this place. Praise cannot be high enough. Lilian is the perfect hostess and gives you support in everything. It is worth going to Lima just to see this place and I have never had a more luxurious B & B and it can compete with small luxury hotels as well.

    Maison d'Hôtes de Charme à Lima, Pérou

    from

    J'ai découvert Second Home Peru par hasard... Il s'agit d'une superbe maison coloniale offrant une vue spectaculaire sur l'Océan Pacifique.

    A environ 10 minutes du centre historique de Lima, et tout près du quartier de Miraflores, cette Maison offre des chambres d'un confort et d'une élégance rare. Il y a un immense jardin et une belle piscine.

    L'accueil est celui des maisons d'hôtes de qualité.

    J'ai été touché par l'accueil chaleureux de Lilian Delfin, passionnée d'art et de voyages, avec qui j'ai eu grand plaisir à partager des moments privilégiés.

    Bien qu'entièrement restaurée, la maison a su garder son âme. Il s'agit là d'une adresse de grande qualité, alliant tout le confort d'aujourd'hui à l'authenticité et la gentillesse d'autrefois.

    J'y pense encore trés souvent, et j'y retournerai un jour...

    Charming and Unique Guest House in Lima

    from

    I spent one night at Second Home Peru on my last trip to South America. This Guest House was just what I was looking for: A magnificent colonial house, in the heart of a private little estate overlooking the Pacific Ocean, near the historical center of Lima, and just by the Miraflores area.

    I found Lilian, the owner very friendly and helpfull.

    Her father, who also lives on the property, is an artist. You'll enjoy his paintings and sculptures all around the house.

    The guest rooms are spacious and very elegant.

    I was impressed by the view towards the ocean from my room!

    A very positive and friendly energy..A place that I would recommend, and where I surely come back.

    Thank you Lilian!

    A gem

    from

    i really loved this place. it is calm, and gorgeous and everyone working there is wonderful. i stayed for 9 days and felt at home. "second home" really could not have a more suiting name.

    My secret in Barranco

    from

    In a way, I really hate to share this secret because word-of-mouth will soon make Second Home Peru so popular I might not be able to get my favorite room when I return, which I will certainly will do.

    Barranco is an, off the path, residential community adjoining Miraflores, with a charming plaza, many restaurants, bistros and few turistas, at least off-season

    SecondHomePeru is a lovely mansion, high on a palisade above the Pacific with a spectacular view. Not only is it an incredibly beautiful property but also is it also filled, inside and out, with the work of the famous Peruvian artist/sculptor, Victor Delfin. It is like having a room at MOMA, with a most gracious host (hostess), Lilian Delfin. I was very lucky to be there off-season, and was even more able to enjoy the hospitality.

    I had booked a two-night revisit to a nice hostal in Miraflores for my return from Cusco, but they did not have the first of three nights I needed, so I reserved one night at Secondhome.

    I was so thrilled with this place that I, not only, cancelled the previous reservation, but changed my return flight home to Puerto Rico and stayed another two days.

    SHP is a fantastic value for about $75US per night, including a light breakfast, often with Lilian. She and her staff seem to find nothing too difficult, whether it is a pickup at the airport, or getting your personal laundry washed and folded.

    I give it SIX stars!

    Very Unique!

    from

    The most unique place we have ever stayed at! Beautifully decorated with the art of Victor Delfin and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Will stay there on our next trip to Lima.
