For a full day of work the price range would be s/. 60 to s/. 80. If they are live in s/. 1000 to s/. 1200. ANYBODY YOU EMPLOY SHOULD PRESENT TO YOU A POLICE REPORT SHOWING THEY HAVE NO OUTSTANDING CONVICTIONS OR COMPLAINTS.

The above figures sound about right to me, although you can easily pay less, or more, but that depends on who you're hiring and how you do it. A lot of the agencies are costly, but unreliable, so personal recommendations are often the best, but even then... If no one has any specific recommendations, the next best thing is to ask if someone's maid has a relative or friend.

We pay 100 soles per week for 2 days / week (about 4 hours each day), for cleaning our similar sized apartment also in Miraflores. Floors, 3 bathrooms, kitchen, dishes, laundry.

Thanks, all for your input. Seems low, considering it breaks down to 50 soles a day.

We finally settled on 70 soles for our maid for one day a week. We consider her a gem and well worth the price. We are here in Lima for 3 months a year and give a bonus of an extra day on our last week before we leave.
