"Dawn on the Amazon Building"

Dawn on the Amazon building

Your apartment is the one with the balcony on the second floor of the Dawn on the Amazon building, on the pedestrian only boulevard at the corner of the 1st block of Nauta Street, two blocks from the Plaza de Armas. Your view is of the boulevard and the Itaya River. The ground floor is home to the office of Dawn on the Amazon Tours and CruisesDawn on the Amazon Cafe, and the Amazon Explorers Club. This is a great location for you to meet interesting people, and make new friends.

In the interest of transparency, although street noise is minimized, there are other noises associated with human activity on the boulevard particularly on Friday, Saturday and Sunday night, and some holidays between 7:00pm and 11:00pm, as the boulevard is one of the best places to see and be seen. I think it is a cool scene, with musicians playing, clowns on stilts, comedians being funny, capoeira, preachers preaching, dancers dancing, and always surprises. Not everyone agrees. There are also kitchen and restaurant noises except on Sunday when Dawn on the Amazon is closed.

You have no kitchen, but you are only 2 minutes from Dawn on the Amazon Cafe, one of the best restaurants in Iquitos, number one according to TripAdvisor for over 4 years. We can deliver to your apartment when you don’t feel like going out.

This is a furnished efficiency apartment. You start out with two sheets, pillow case, towel and toilet paper to get you started. There is no maid service. The apartment comes with a broom, mop, and bucket. If you would like your room cleaned you can hire one of our crew to clean for you. There is a drop off laundry right around the corner. You can leave your sheets, towels and clothes there to be washed in the morning and pick them up clean in the afternoon. At the end of your stay, leave us the sheets, towel and hammock.

There is a “Portales super market” 4 blocks away to buy toilet paper, supplies, snacks and drinks to stock your apartment and your refrigerator.

Bill and Marmelita Grimes live on the third floor and are your closest neighbors.

Rent is $425 U.S. dollars per month, one month’s rent in advance for security, which will be refunded to you assuming you leave the apartment in the same shape it was when you moved in.

We prefer to rent by the month, but under some circumstances will rent for $40 per night.

No pets, no motorcycles.

Perfect!! When I retire from Saudi – I plan on spending a portion of each year in Iquito (3 or 4 months each year). I always though this apartment would be perfect – always stayed elsewhere as I always forgot to contact you about the place.

Hi Rodney, It will be great to have you for a neighbor.

I am looking for a place to stay in Iquitos for 2 to 3 months. This apartment sounds perfect for me. I plan to arrive on Sept. 17, and leave in mid-November or mid-December, 2014. Is there an opening for me to do this? Thank you so much, Patience

I’m looking for a place to stay in Iquitos for a month or so this winter. Have you got an apartment – preferably with a kitchen – available between late December and early March?

Hello Ed, I am not sure. Although no one has put money down, two different people have expressed strong interest for several months in the only apartment we have with a kitchen. We will see. I will answer in more detail by email. Best regards, Bill

Hi Bill, do you have an apt available for 8 days from April 2 to the 10th? I volunteer with Adopt-a School, and I’m coming down early this year. Met you last year, enjoyed the evenings of sitting around people watching and talking with the ex-pat’s. Ray
