Amenities & services

The beautiful and quirky old home is on the cliffside, and the sounds and smells of the ocean are ever-present. You can enjoy them from your room's private balcony, or from the sitting room upstairs, or in the multiple levels of the backyard. You can wander around the house and property looking at the amazing art. One of my favorite things to do was look at the waves roll in and watch the surfers on the nearby beach.



Two, the innkeeper and her staff. Lillian is a fascinating and caring person. She will keep you entertained with stories at breakfast, and give you good recommendations for food and sightseeing, including hand-drawn maps. Also, some of our party got sick - she actually accompanied us to the pharmacy to buy the appropriate drugs, and even called some doctors in one case! When we returned to Lima sick, she made available another room even though the hotel's official rooms were booked up. And I met another couple that had loved the place so much, they were able to come back during their stopover between Cusco & home, and were able to spend more time at the Second Home while they waited for their plane. This is real service. The rest of the staff was friendly and helpful, including the two people who they hire to drive people to/from the airport.



The rooms...fantastic! They are beautifully decorated, airy, with lots of light. The beds were some of the most comfortable in our entire Peruvian vacation. Each room comes with a large bottle of bottled water. Provided also are two wineglasses and a corkscrew - this is the perfect place to enjoy a bottle of wine from the nearby supermarket. The breakfast is great, with fresh bread from the nearby panaderia and hot coffee, freshly brewed, none of that instant crap. It's a nice place to take a leisurely breakfast, enjoying your coffee.



The art on the property is beautiful and inspiring. It is fantastic to see an artist's lifework all at once, and have the ability to study his themes altogether in the Peruvian setting he was inspired by. I am a huge fan now of Victor Delfin's work.
