Dee is a wonderful host and her hospitality is above par. Her house is comfortable and very nice. The bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms are huge and you will feel instantly at home. The caretaker and his wife are also very helpful. They went out of their way to get us a fresh bread on our first morning and also filled the fridge with eggs, cheeses and ham to get us started.
Dee provided plenty of good recommendations for food and we loved all the places. We are kind of folks who dig in local stuff and we loved Pizza Wasi and Buen Guesto. The fancier place El huacatey was also fantastic. The drivers Miguel, Mario (younger one as there are two) are the ones who drove us around and they both were great and informative.
Dee also arranged for us at last minute request a massage session as we were beat after our 4Day Inca trail hike and the lady Gaby who did our massage was great. Thanks Dee!
We recommended staying at her place. Also check out Salt mines at Maras which is only 15 min drive from the house
We found such peace during our 4 day stay in this gorgeous little cottage home. Dee and Efrain have a way about details! We had great food to start us off in the fridge, fresh bread in the morning, a spotless home each day we returned, piping hot showers, and a couple of bikes to borrow. The living room and kitchen was our main place to be late into the evenings, adobe stove ablaze and videos on the sacred valley and the Incas. This wonderful property was a welcome refuge from days out wandering the ruins in the nearby countryside. Thank you so much for having us!
Let me start out with saying this is the BEST AirBNB experience I have ever had! Dee is an amazing host. I booked her cottage months before our arrival in Peru and she helped me plan our trip (like a travel agent!). She was amazing every step of the way, making suggestions on local things to do, how to book our train and tickets for Machu Picchu, the list goes on and on. She was not there the first few days of our stay but she was still in contact to ensure all was going smoothly.
She hired a driver (Miguel) to not only pick us up from the airport but tour us around during our stay. He was so great! He was on time and a great driver, please thank him again for us. This is a bit more expensive than a regular taxi you would hail, but so worth it! Safe and reliable!
Daniel her groundskeeper met us upon arrival and also dropped off fresh bread our first morning there. There was also breakfast for our first morning (so thoughtful!) Anita the house keeper was there for anything we needed!
The cottage itself has everything you need and is so adorable. We loved every single thing about it. The grounds were gorgeous, beautiful gardens and of course Sultan (her dog), who we loved! Please give him a hug from us. It is all gated so we felt very safe, safe neighbourhood as well. About 20-30 min walk to town. We recommend a somewhat fancy hotel/restaurant about 10min walk called Wayu, they have great food and a horse show for lunch and dinner.
Dee - thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You made our trip so amazing. We will most definitely be back and hope to bring our friends and family next time!
The most beautiful Air B&B I've stayed at thus far. Dee was so sweet to have Coca leaves for elevation acclimation, fresh fruit and a plethora of yummie teas available awaiting for my late arrival. Her cottage is so cozy and the surrounding grounds are beautifully decorated with vibrant flowers, trees and wildlife...you almost don't want to leave! It is a perfect quiet place to de-stress and acclimate before doing any Mitchu Picchu trek and/or relax after an exhausting multi-day hike. She was more than happy to suggest places to visit and eat and was very commutative to the taxi drivers about where to take her guests.
I will keep in contact with Dee so I may visit her and her little paradise in the future!
I stayed 5 nights in the amazing home away from home in the footfills of Urumbamba. Dee and Efrain were gracious host, with a warm smile and such great tips and tricks and useful information about the area and its surroundings. The guesthouse was amazing, with an traditional feel and modern comforts all in one. We were very comfortable and had such nice sleeps and enjoyed the grounds, the pets and the noise of nature and nothing all at the same time. This is truly an amazing place to recharge and re energenise and a great gateway to the fun things to see in the Sacred Valley. Lovely hosts, lovely house, lovely vacations! Highly recommended!!
About the Host, Dee And Efrain
I fell in love with this area, on my first visit 20 some years ago. Purchased our "dream" land shortly after and eventually moved here to live 6 years ago (after many lovely vacations in the original restored adobe cottage) My Peruvian husband and I lived many years in the USA (I'm British). We love to travel, and enjoy giving our guests the personalised attention that we ourselves would appreciate when out and about in the world. We enjoy making new friends from all over the world, our permanent home is on the property.Creating great experiences and memories is what its all about for us. Join us for a glass of wine at the campfire!
