Absolutely gorgeous property with a beautiful garden and mountain scenery! Conveniently located to visit Machu Picchu and Ollayantambo. The trip was truly enhanced by Dee's recommendations and hospitality! Miguel, the driver, was excellent and Vilma, the housekeeper, was wonderful! I experienced altitude sickness and was very well taken care of and recovered quickly! There is THE most peaceful space to practice yoga! We also loved the endearing dog, Bagel! We will be back someday and would not stay anywhere else in Cusco!

Dee and Efrain's beautiful property were just the quiet refuge we needed after a busy couple days in Cusco. Their grounds are breath-taking, and their staff are friendly and forgiving of our minimal Spanish :) They have a book full of little treks you can schedule with their driver Miguel, which we felt was so helpful. Thanks for an incredible stay!

This little guest house is a wonderful place to relax, and enjoy beautiful surroundings, with a cosy log fire. A lovely welcome was received on arrival with fresh eggs, bread, tea, coffee etc. A great folder containing information on restaurants, suggested itinerary's and a name of local driver was fantastic.

Dee provides a very comfortable apartment in a beautiful location for touring the Sacred Valley. She went out of her way to insure all our needs were met. This included arranging a driver to pick us up at the Cuzco airport and drive us to different sights in the Sacred Valley. She also arranged for an appointment at the local spa. If you want a beautiful setting in a relaxing environment in the Sacred Valley, this is the place!

Dee and Efrain's place was stunning. So relaxing and nestled in between the mountains that line the valley. We really had zero issues with our stay. I will say that if you do the walk from the Salt Mines to the house then take a picture of the map Dee has available before you leave so you can use it along the way. Our bad, we didn't get lost but started doubting ourselves when we came to a fork in the road and didn't quite know which way to go. Hint... It's to the right. Transportation was arranged with their driver Miguel (download translate for offline use, it saved our lives). Miguel was wonderful and very nice. He was patient and waited for us after taking us to all our stops. We bought him water and snacks while he waited and he was very grateful. The only issue we had was our last ride he set up for us which stuffed all four of us and all eight of our bags in a very small car for the 1.5 hr ride to Cusco. We were confused and a little upset about it, but in the end we were not inconvenienced as much as the poor driver whose car kept bottoming out over every single bump along the road. I would say if you are concerned just make them aware and I'm sure alternate arrangements could be made. Vilma is their housekeeper and who we dealt with most of the time because Dee and Efrain were out of town when we were there. She is very sweet, doesn't speak much English, but again, the app was very helpful and in my opinion if you go to a foreign country you should attempt their language as much as possible. In all we very much enjoyed our stay. If I ever go back to Urubamba I will certainly stay here again and would in fact love to invite more family with us next time and use this as our base for places like Ollantaytambo, Aguas Calientes, Pisac and Chinchero.

Beautiful home and location. Dee is incredibly welcoming and friendly. Highly recommend any stay here, we wish we hadn't had to leave!

Response from Dee And Efrain:
Will definitly review prices with Miguel, although our initial research had shown him as very good value. He is so reliable and safe we think hes worth any extra. Also his vehicle has a third row of seats comfortable for families. Toms viewpoint may be somewhat relative as he has been living in Lima. Sacred Valley is a tourist area and some things are just more expensive here.

Dee and Efrain have a beautiful home and garden and the cottage was a lovely place to stay. We were welcome to use the pool, yoga studio and vegetable garden. They were excellent hosts. The location is great because it's in the middle of the Sacred Valley so everywhere is easily accessible. Pavel is a particularly good driver and guide. We especially enjoyed our expeditions with him to unusual places. He speaks good English and was a knowledgeable and thoughtful guide. It was a peaceful, quiet and pretty place to stay. And we loved having a fire every evening and the lovely smell of jasmine growing outside.

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!
