Cozy rooms just off the beach with sleeping lofts over sitting room. Bathroom is adequate but a bit small. Plumbing is also just adequate. However, thats where the shortcomings cease. The place has a fantastic location with a locked front gate for secure access. The vibe is very relaxed with a wonderful young couple from Holland operating the 3 room hotel/hostal. There is a kitchen on ground floor with fridge, stove and cooler full of beer and water for you to purchase on the honor system. We paid roughly $20 a nite and truly enjoyed our stay in Huanchaco. Found it to be a very friendly little beach town with easy access to city of Trujillo. We were there for Candelaria and elaborate fireworks were going off all up and down the beach. This is a great place in Peru Jan- April.
PS You will love Casa Amelia's four legged Mascot ... a Peruvian hairless that has a pigs tail, bat ears, and growls when he is happy...endearing little creature!
If you should meet Amelia while there you will find her charming.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa Amelia is a gem of a place, truly unlike anything else in Huanchaco. The extraordinary building is made in bungalow-style with grass roof. It has a beautiful garden where hummingbirds fly around all day. Two roof terraces with chairs and hammocks overlook the sea. Rooms are big, with sea view, very romantic, comfortable and clean. The guest kitchen has everything imaginable to cook your own meals. It's a great place to rest for a while and really feel at home. The location is unbeatable, just where the noise ends. The kitchen includes a super cozy indoor common area with an internet connected tv and guest computer. We have two cute bunnies, a cat and a parrot that walk around and happily receive your love. The hostel is small so you only share everything with a small selection of other guests. We guarantee a great WiFi signal. On top of that we have a huge book exchange, laundry service and will help you with anything you like to undertake in Huanchaco or the region. We know everything about surfing and will assist you to find your material and/or surf lessons. We have an outside shower, place for wetsuits and board rack. From our roof terrace you can check the waves of all 3 surf breaks of Huanchaco. Be very very welcome and we hope you stay for a while! ... more less
