Great flat with an amazing view. Private complex, very secure, in the main tourist area. Jim is an excellent host, always willing to help with any queries. Have stayed here twice now and will stay here again next time I am in Iquitos.

I came to Iquitos with a buddy of mine that visits there all the time. Each of us reserved an apartment at Boulevard 251 apartments. My friend had stayed there before but this was a first time for me. Wow, what a great place. A million dollar view of the river and jungle, a very comfortable bed, great bathroom with hot water shower and a small kitchen if I wanted to eat in. The location is great. Very close to the river walk area with craft and art vendors and many great places to eat. Everything we needed was within walking distance. We were on the go so much that I only met Jim once and he was very kind and sincere. If I ever go back to Iquitos I'm gonna stay at Jim's place again. I highly recommend it.

Location, location, location! This apartment is absolutely one of the best locations you can get in Iquitos. Very safe area with a lot of tourist and police officers walking around. Along a strip with all of the best restaurants and close to the main Plaza De Armas. In the apartment you don't have to deal with looking at the city or it's noises as the apartment looks out towards the Amazon River. The AC works like a champ as well!

Staying at Jim's was a very good idea. The flat was clean, beautiful and spacious. The view is incredible and has probably one of the best locations in Iquitos. Also Jim was a wonderful and attentive host from the beginning to the end of our time there.

Jim is an extremely homely fellow, that works to accommodate everything his residents may want. Located at the end of the Malecon, you can not ask for a better place to rest your head at the end of a long day exploring Iquitos. The place is always kept very clean and orderly, and all the amenities are very up to date (whether it be the kitchen, the AC, or the TV). But by far nothing compares to waking up every morning to the sunrise over the river. If anything is going to convince you to stay in the room it is the morning and nightly views over the large wall made of windows. With a landlord constantly trying to improve this space for residents, I would highly suggest this place to anyone visiting Iquitos.

This is a lovely apartment in the best location in Iquitos - super close to the restaurants/bars along the Malecon, and just a few minutes from the main plaza. The apartment is just as it looks in the photos, with an spectacular view. We had a few issues with internet and noise from the construction, but Jim was extremely responsive and helpful. Once the construction in the building is complete, this will be the perfect place to stay!

Jim User ProfileJim is a superhost.

After working in construction in England I travelled the world and became fascinated particularly with the jungle regions, I found myself in the jungle town of Iquitos in 1999. I broke my foot playing football with some friendly locals which put an end to my travels. I got involved in a local business and was able to buy a derelict property on the banks of the Amazon on which I created a small community, renting the individual apartments by word of mouth to fellow gringos working in and around Iquitos.
I have now built some high quality new apartments to cater for short term visitors.
