Staying at the Cubas was the best decision I made on my journey in Peru. They treated me like family—Paula's cooking is wonderful (ask for the aji de gajina). The room was clean and quiet. The location was local but very safe for tourists. It was a short walk to the city center and not far from a strip of shops and restaurants. The helped me practice Spanish and always fostered a very warm environment with no pressure for nights when I just wanted to be alone in my room.
From the moment I reserved Casa Cuba-Diaz, until we left, we were attended with great friendliness and warmth. They responded quickly with any special requests. The entire family treated us like we were part of their family. They also gave us "space" if we needed it, to rest, recuperate from a busy trip, etc. Paola took us out to finish up last minute errands before we left, something that would have been time-consuming to do on our own. They all speak excellent English. We stayed in the upper level of the house, which has a patio and provides an additional view of the city. They went above and beyond the normal home stay experience, and when(not if) I return to Arequipa, they will be my first choice for lodging. Thank you!
