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 directions are on our website in the 'how to find us' section.
Taxi from Trujillo:
From any point in Trujillo you can take a taxi to Huanchaco (15 soles is a fair price). You can tell the driver to drop you at our address (Av. Victor Larco 1150, Huanchaco, El Boqueron). A good idea is to include 'a dos casas del restaurante BigBen', they all know this restaurant. Casa Amelia has NO sign with its name and drivers will probably not know it. From the seafront you can look for the big BigBen sign. We are two houses from them at number 1150. The location of the doorbell is marked by a small backpacker image on the gate.
Bus from Trujillo:
There are buses going from Trujillo to Huanchaco until around 9 - 9.30 in the evening. It is possible to use them if you are not too heavily packed. It depends on where in Trujillo your bus arrives if you can catch one close by or not. Huanchaco buses are red and yellow and show 'Huanchaco' in big letters.
All buses drive a similar route through Huanchaco. Bus attendants are always friendly and will surely help you if you ask them. Best would be to get out at 'el estadio' (the football field) in Huanchaco. From anywhere in Huanchaco it is just a small walk to Casa Amelia. Just walk to the seafront and follow the directions below.
Casa Amelia is on the road along the seaside at the northern side of Huanchaco, just before the BigBen restaurant. From many places at the seafront the sign of the BigBen restaurant is clearly visible. Casa Amelia is located two houses before at number 1150. The location of the doorbell is marked by a small backpacker image on the gate.
Casa Amelia is located at the seafront at the northern end of Huanchaco, just there where the noise ends. Supermarkets, surf schools and restaurants are all surrounding us and the best pubs are only a 5 minute walk away. You can safely walk around at any time.
A popular surf break is right in front of the property. You can watch the surfers go until sunset from the roof terrace or the beach in front.
