Do you want to stay in one of the best locations in Cusco?
We are a looking for friendly travelers to help share the rent in our nice colonial house. The house is located in the Historical Centre on a rare quiet street with no traffic or pedestrian noise (cul-de-sac), behind Qoricancha (Temple of the Sun) on Av. Ahuacpinta.
The house is close to everything! It´s only a 5 minute flat walk from the Main Square (Plaza de Armas) and it´s around the corner from supermarkets, local produce markets, banks, restaurants and everything else that you could need as it’s one block away from Av. El Sol (main street in downtown Cusco).
We have plenty of space as the bedrooms are large with a double bed (including polar fleece sheets, warm duvet, & 2 pillows), heating, towel, lockable wardrobe with mirror, bedside table, windows, electrical outlets, and a lockable door with key. The house has a nice kitchen (4 burner stove, fridge, cooking equipment, toaster, blender etc), lounge room (Cable TV, DVD, WIFI), dining room, large bathroom plus an additional toilet and a place to wash and hang laundry.
The price of the room includes all services (fast wifi connection, cable TV, electricity, water, hot water shower, gas, toilet paper and cleaning products).
We can offer a free pick-up service from the airport or bus station to ensure that you arrive to our house safely and without any hassels.
Your stay here will be comfortable and relaxing as I'm a very opend minded person. I have a great knowledge of Cusco and the Sacred Valley and I'm happy to give travel advice about the area.
I speak English and Spanish and I love meeting new people. I will ensure that you have a wonderful stay with me in the heart of Cusco!
We were looking for a simple, affordable place to stay in Cusco on our trip through Peru. The location is great. It's an easy walk to central Cusco and there is a supermarket and plenty of bodegas nearby.
The room is spacious and secure and there was plenty of hot water for the shower. There is a kitchen but we never had a chance to use it as we were only there a couple of days.
If you are on a budget and looking for an affordable place to crash in central Cusco this is a good choice.
We stayed at Mauricio's for a few days before and after going on the Inca trail and had a great experience. Mauricio himself was out of town but was very fast to reply to emails and was very friendly and helpful. Sofia his house mate was an amazing host. She showed us around Cusco, helped us book tours and really made us feel at home. We instantly felt at ease in the apartment and it was a welcome change from a souless hotel room. If you want to make friends and really make the most of your stay in a beautiful city then we would definitely recommend Mauricio's place!
True to ourselves, my wife and I arrived to cusco without knowing where to stay. In less than a day we were able to book a room at Mauricio's and it was the best thing I could've happened to us. The location is great (a block away from a major attraction - koricancha temple), the room was clean and spacious, and Mauricio himself was helpful and nice. I highly recommend his place!
It was great to stay at Mauricio's place upon our arrival to Peru! We couldn't have been welcomed by a friendlier host- he picked us up from the airport (early!) on New Year's Day which I really appreciated, gave us coca tea upon our arrival, and offered us his time to help in booking our trek to Machu Picchu (an offer of which I took up a few days later:)) His apartment is basic and homey and we felt very comfortable for the 3 days that we stayed. It was also nice to mingle with some of the other guests staying there at the time- we had a lot of fun and I would definitely stay at Mauricio's again!
Very welcoming host. Mauricio was at the airport to greet me on arrival, what a beautiful way to be welcomed. His house is cosy and centrally located. Gracias por todo amigo!
I had a great time in Cusco. It was a very short stay but worth every second. I found Mauricio at the last minute and booked my stay with him. I was a late addition to an already ongoing trip so I wasn't sure what the accommodation arrangements were and I wanted to have a back up in case I didn't have a place to stay. Mauricio's place came in very handy. Very nice and cozy place. Very clean. Mauricio was super friendly and helpful. He met for
me at the airport and was always ready to help in any way. I would definitely recommend his place for someone that wants to stay in a nice and comfy place and on a budget. Thanks for all your help Mauricio! :)
I have stayed at Mauricio's place for one night after returning from an excruciating work trip to the High Andes. I usually stay in a hotel in Cusco, but this time took my chances with AirBnB as I did not want to return to an empty hotel room. I am so glad I did it, because Mauricio is a wonderful young man, who has created a lovely simple home in the heart of Cusco! He listened to me patiently as I "unloaded" all of my work stress and I cannot thank him enough for this. Although his place is still a work in progress, I highly recommended it. The low price does not do justice to the large clean bed room and especially the friendliness of the host. So if you want a good quality accomodation, with a great host at a bargain price - look no further. I certainly will go back - no more hotels in Cusco for me :-)
We had a great time at Mauricio's, he was extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming, we felt much like at home. The apartment is in good location, within walking distance to the historical center. There are several people staying in the apartment, some Mauricio's long term roommates, some travelers, so the atmosphere resembles more a hostel than regular home stay. Few times there was some quite loud talking either late at night or very early in the morning, but generally it was nice to have the people around as everyone was friendly.
Mauricio is a likeable person. He is very reliable and uncomplicated. It is important to him that his guests feel comfortable. The first day he accompanied me to the center. And on the day of my departure he got up early to say goodbye to me and to help me with the luggage. The apartment is clean and quiet. And the rooms are large and has plenty of storage space. There is every time hot water in the shower, you only have to wait a few minutes but therefore it enough water comes out (which I've really missed at other places..).
Great place to stay in Cusco. Mauricio offered to pick us up from the airport, once we arrived to the house everything is like described. It was very close to everything in the city. If I ever go back I would definitely stay here again.
