Dee was a gracious host and provided a wealth of information from our first contact to book the cottage.
The cottage is located inside their property surrounded by their lovely garden in a quiet and safe road. It is very well appointed and cozy that you will feel very much at home and relaxed.
Dee left us with enough food for breakfast to last us during our stay and the maid, Anita, brought extra bread one morning to supplement.
All the information you need to get around the Sacred Valley and to visit Machu Picchu was provided and booking a taxi to move around was very easy and hassle-free.
We highly recommend Dee & Efrain's cottage to anyone wanting to make the trip to the Sacred Valley.
This was easily the nicest Airbnb's I've ever had the pleasure of visiting. The property was just amazing and the cottage was perfect for my group. Although we missed Dee and her husband for most of our stay, Daniel and Anita took very good care of us in their absence. The town was very close by, either walking or taking one of the motortaxis, and we really enjoyed our stay. The personal touches of breakfast on the first day and fresh flowers were much appreciated.
Absolutely perfect! The house is very clean and Dee is very friendly and helpful at all times. Definitely I will be back. A++ experience. You must go!
My mom and I had a wonderful experience staying here at Kaypacha in Sacred Valley. Dee and Efrain were extremely helpful in getting us aquatinted with the area and making sure we got to see as much as we could! Giving us many helpful tips on Macchu Picchu, and the other wonderful ruins around the Sacred Valley area!Their home is absolutely beautiful, waking up to see gorgeous mountains and having coffee in the beautiful garden truly made for an amazing experience!
Dee connected us with a driver who picked us up from the airport and was with us during our 4 days in the Sacred Valley. Staying at Kaypacha was a very smooth, beautiful and hospitable experience!
We hope we get the chance to come back and stay here again!
This was indeed a cozy cottage. The three of us, my mother, husband and I landed here after two days at an upscale hotel and one day at Machu Picchu. It was a complete restorative! The calm, the quiet, the lovely rooms and gardens! Dee and Efrain are tremendous hosts, welcoming, effusive and generous.
I already loved the Sacred Valley, and love it even more because of them. All of us felt quite lucky to land there, from coffee on the balcony,to the driver they recommended for our excursions, to the fire at night. WONDERFUL!!!
We had a fabulous four nights in the Cosy Cottage. Dee and Efrain's hospitality was amazing and a bonus for our three kids was their grandchildren who were on holiday at the time and helped ours explore the amazing garden, treehouse, bonfire night and trips to the shop! We can't recommend this more for anyone who wants to enjoy the delights of the Sacred Valley. Would also thoroughly recommend Miguel the driver.
We had a great stay - the cozy cottage was exactly as described. Dee was a super host !! Extremely helpful and went above and beyond with helping us finalize some last minute arrangements with our tour guide. The property itself was beautiful, we wish we would've had more time to sit and enjoy it more. The cleaning lady and mobile phone was a great touch. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in the sacred valley.
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!
