Penthouse triplex facing San Isidro's "El Golf" in Lima, at the 22, 23 & 24th floors. Includes 2 dinning rooms, full kitchen with another dinning room, rooftop BBQ, and a private pool (Starting Dec 2015). Property is 7534 square feet total.
This is a 3 level penthouse, totaling 7534 squared feet, or 700 squared meters. The property is located in the modern district of San Isidro, with views of the San Isidro Golf Club and the Pacific Ocean, along with a 360 degree view of the city. It is safely guarded by a doorman, and has a private garage for residential use. We call our beloved penthouse "Our House in the Sky," since you can see most of the city from what seems to be the clouds.
The first level on the 22nd floor has a huge living room and formal dinning room, on top of an informal kitchen dinning room. The main living room and dinning room contain imported Spanish marble floors. The floor also contains three bedrooms with ample closet space and full bathrooms, a full kitchen with a laundry room, and a guest restroom.
The second level on the 23rd floor has a private swimming pool (starting from December 2015), a closed terrace alongside a living room, and 2 master bedrooms with full baths, one of which has a Jacuzzi.
The third level on the 24th floor has a game room with a pool table, a huge terrace, and a BBQ grill which can be used at any time.
Lastly, our building has a huge garden in the back exclusively for the building's residents, and it's where our kids spent countless hours playing with the neighbors when they were young. The golf course also has a nice pedestrian walkway for a delightful morning or evening jog.
The penthouse is located very close to other interesting locations. Within walking distance is the Swissotel, which has five exquisite restaurants, and the Camino Real Convention Center, which houses San Isidro's best shopping centers and more restaurants. The property's neighborhood is also one of the safest in the city. A few blocks from the property, you can also find Huaca Huallamarca, one of the best preserved Incan ruins in the city open for tourism. These ruins dates back to the sixth century and were used by the Huallas of Lima. It especially stands out because of the sharp contrast it forms with the modern buildings surrounding it.
"El Olivar," or The Olive Grove, is also a few blocks away from our place. The grove is a small municipal park that was founded by the Conquistadores, who brought olive seeds from Spain in the 1500's. The park is a great place for an afternoon roller blade session or a light stroll. If you go early enough, you may even catch a group of people practicing Tai Chi!
The residents of our building and our guests have access to a garage with 1 private car space for our property, and a large garden area.

This part of San Isidro is truly splendid. The weather is always temperate and rather humid, with pleasantly light drizzles in some occasions. The Swissotel, with five exquisite restaurants, the Hotel Los Delfines, with a beautiful casino, and the Country Club, with a delicious Chinese Restaurant and a Starbucks, are located two blocks away and provide exquisitely luxurious escapades. Similarly, we absolutely love Tanta and Astrid y Gaston, two amazing restaurants a few blocks away from our place, owned by the world renown chef Gaston Acurio, who was once named South America's Super Chef by the Washington Post and owns 44 restaurants around the globe.
A few blocks away from our place is also the Ovalo Gutierrez, with one of the best movie theaters in the city. The Ovalo, or roundabout, is a great symbol of the bustling metropolis that is the city of Lima, and is frequented by many locals. If you make your way there, make sure you stop by La Pava, a tiny sandwich joint where you'll truly feel like a local.
Last but most certainly not least, make sure you go to Larcomar just before sunset, as it is the second best place to watch the sunset in all of Lima, after our apartment of course.
Driving in Lima can be a little bit hectic, but we certainly recommend it as taxis can be dangerous and can jack up the price if you're not a good haggler. If you do hop on a cab, make sure you're ready to bargain. If you hop on a public bus, beware of pickpockets.
