Second Home

A majestic 4-star guesthouse by Lima’s Playa Barranco Beach

Overview

The former private home of one of Peru’s most famous artists, Victor Delfin and run by his daughter Lilian, this Tudor-Style mansion is one of our favourite places to stay in Lima. With beautiful sea views, a swimming pool the hotel has a great location on a quiet street just a few blocks from Barranco’s many bars, restaurants and galleries, it offers wonderful personalised service. Breakfast (including freshly baked bread) is served outside amidst tropical greenery and Delfin’s sculptures. All 8 of the hotels rooms are bright and light filled (3 have private terraces facing the ocean) and are all simply furnished. There is a cobblestone path that leads down to the beach.

Activities

The area of Barranco, is one of the real gems of Lima with world class restaurants, culture (and nightlife for those who want it!)…. basically the best that Lima has to offer in a single neighbourhood! Arguably the most colourful neighbourhood in Peru, it has some fantastic street art and colorful houses. Lots of galleries have sprung up in the area in recent years, and you could quite easily while away a day just exploring all the galleries that Barranco has to offer. One of the best museums in the area is Mario Testino’s photography museum where he exhibits his art as well as that of up and coming young artists from Peru. The beach itself is the only stretch of beach in Lima that has sand, it won’t set your world on fire, but maybe worth a visit, it also has one of the best surf schools in Lima in case you are tempted to pick up some new skills on the trip!
