The SpaceThe house can comfortably accommodate four adults/ young adults, and 2 children in 3 bedrooms that have one real queen size bed and two bunk-beds each with real double and single beds.
The house offers a safe, comfortable, independent environment with one acre contained within a tall perimeter wall.
The immediate green space around the house includes a small organic garden with some grass and hammocks under mango and palm trees. The rest is kept with natural grasses and vegetation with the effort to recover a more natural habitat. Guest AccessGuests have access to all spaces, household ampliances and amenities. The house is fitted with basic linen and 2 kitchen appliances, and has a seasonal organic vegetable garden attachment. Interaction with GuestsThe house is being offered as a whole. Interaction with the host is via telephone, email, internet communication. A liaison representative will ensure proper operation of the premises. The NeighborhoodThe property is pinned on pristine farmland just 2 hours north of Lima, by bus, on the foot hills of the Pasamayo Dunes that serve as a natural buffer to the hungry urban sprawl of Lima.
You will find low profile, low density settlements near the house and around Aucallama that guard subtle ancestral heritage manifestations and out-of-time scenes in eerie stillness and the wind that whispers history of the legendary Chancay culture, the Spanish succession, then African and Japanese ethnicities that pursued a lifestyle along the traditionally rich fishing estuary, agricultural land and the valley the heads up to the prosperous plateaus of Junin and the orient.
Walking distance from the property you find mandarin, granadilla, promenade and passion fruit orchards together with staple farms, and the almost forgotten and abandoned 1900 heritage hotel that doesn´t operate but offers still an exceptional medicinal mineral water pond known to treat soul and physical ailment.
At bicycle distance, you access artisan producers of goat cheese, gorgeous displays of fruit stands, and produce at reasonable prices.
Less than 20 minutes by car we land at the Chacra y Mar beach, the estuary, artisan dairy farms; waterfront caves; a Krishna Consciousness monastery, and easterly towards Huaral (bigger commercial town), a clean family run sauna that washes you from the inside out.
Farther at a range of about 2 hours north by car, we reach the Lomas de Lachay natural reserve and the 5000 year old pyramid laden Sacred City of Caral. Easterly, one finds rustic hot spring baths on an typical Andean village called Santa Catalina, and from there on a gorgeous, pristine corridor to the higher Andes attractions. Getting AroundYou can arrive to the farm by private or public transport (your car or bus, taxi) and a combination of these plus some walking. Free, secure parking is included within the property.
Budget transit from Lima requires catching the Metropolitano Bus Connector or a taxi to ZBus Transporte Huaral service terminal by Acho or at Plaza Norte (30 minutes); from there a 2 hour bus ride to Huaral, and then a 20 minute private taxi ride ($5.00) to the villa.
Once at the villa, one gets around walking, cycling or hiring private or public vehicles.
High standard buses can be catched to Huaraz from nearby Huaral.
