Second Home Peru

This historic Tudor mansion was once home to Victor Delfin, one of Peru’s most famous sculptors. Today, the building has been renovated into a charming boutique hotel, run by his daughter Lilian, which displays several of Delfin’s pieces in its own art gallery. Second Home Peru is right on the Barranco coastline, giving guests gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean. The hotel is characterized by intricate woodwork, high ceilings, and numerous patios and gardens where guests can relax in a comfortable hammock. This boutique hotel also boasts a gorgeous swimming pool that is open during Peru’s summer months: December to April, approximately. There are only 6 guests rooms, each open and airy with wonderful views of either the ocean or the sculpture garden. 5 of the rooms come with a queen-sized bed while the family suite has 2 double beds. The simple decoration is classically done, with clear lines, plush white beds, and walls adorned with select art pieces by Victor Delfin. Each room features a large bathroom with a massive tub, electric heater, flat screen cable TV, and Internet. Several of the rooms have private terraces, and those that don’t are next to lovely shared balconies.
