My friend and I stayed with Manuel and his family for two nights before and three nights after finishing the Inca Trail. It was such a pleasure staying with Manuel and his family and I hope to visit them again soon! Manuel is an extremely welcoming, gracious, and attentive host. He made a point of checking in with us throughout the day to make sure we had everything we needed and thoroughly answered any and all questions we had about Cusco. The facilities were kept extremely clean and the location was easy to get to and from. We also had a number of meals at Manuel's and they were all delicious -- his wife is a great cook! All in all, we truly had a wonderful time getting to know Manuel's beautiful family and the city of Cusco. Whether you are planning a short or long trip to Cusco, Manuel's is surely the perfect place to stay!
It is not an exaggeration at all to say me and my other young female friend would not have made it to Machu Picchu without Manuel and his family's help. He and his family are kind, polite, and so helpful. They made two young women traveling alone feel not only safe, but confident and welcome .
The house itself is clean, well decorated with warm water and wifi. Absolutely no complaints about the house itself, and the area it is in is just off the beaten track enough to be quiet, though one still feels safe (and it is easy to find- once shown and you'll be able to find your way back).
The homemade breakfasts are delicious, but all this can be found elsewhere- Manuel and his family cannot. They helped us get to Machu Picchu, and if I ever go back I want to take the tour with them. They are knowledgable, sweet, and just so helpful. I recommend them so highly- they are an amazing friend and ally to have.
I've just returned home after a week at this wonderful homestay! From the moment you arrive until the moment you leave you are taken care of like one of the family, a real home from home.
The location is ideal if you want to be a little away from the hustle and bustle of central Cusco but still close enough to walk in when you want, if not a taxi is very cheap at just 5 soles.
The rooms are comfortable and clean with lots of blankets to keep you warm on a chilling night.
One of the best things about this homestay is the wonderful food on offer every day, a real treat and great value.
If you looking for a reasonably priced and very welcoming homestay in Cusco you should seriously consider staying here.
Je recommande vivement l'adresse de Manuel, pour plusieurs raisons dont l' Accueil extrêmement sympathique. Manuel était à l'arrivée du Bus de la Cruz del Sur avec sa pancarte... Il n'a pas ménagé son temps pour nous aider, nous conseiller, et même nous accompagner dans nos démarches (achat des billets de train et ceux du Machu Picchu...). Outre l'Anglais, il parle bien le Français, et le comprend très bien. Il connaît parfaitement les sites à visiter à Cuzco et dans les environs, et il est de bon conseil pour organiser vos visites avec vous, si vous le souhaitez, car il n'est en rien intrusif. Il a un souci discret de votre bien être. Prévenant, soucieux du détail, il pratique l'accueil comme un professionnel, mais avec un réel bonheur. On se sent bien chez lui. Les chambres sont propres et on n'est pas obligé de regarder où on met les pieds dans la sdb... nettoyée chaque jour. Sa maison domine Cuzco, à l'écart du bruit. A une vingtaine de minutes à pieds du centre ville historique, c'est une promenade agréable. Et les taxis vous ramènent pour qq solles...
Si vous le souhaitez, Manuel et son épouse vous préparent un petit déjeuner complet ou un repas le soir. Excellente adresse, vraiment !
Très bon rapport qualité-prix. J'y enverrais des amis.
During our stay, Manuel has gone the extra mile every single time to make our stay and trip so much easier and enjoyable. His level of patience, kindness and will to help has never been topped before. The place and location were exactly as described, absolutely no complaints at all! We felt like we kinda won the lottery by staying with him, with our friend, with someone who we could trust and make us feel at home. Honestly, 6 stars would've been a better fit! Thank you for everything my friend, we'll never forget everything you did for us! Come visit us in Canada!
Anyone and everyone that comes to Cusco should stay with Manuel and his family! We stayed with him for 6 nights book-ending a trek to Machu Picchu. Manuel truly has been by far the most amazing host we have ever had! He has gone above and beyond with everything and it has made our stay absolutely incredible.
On our first day he offered to walk us into the city of Cusco and show us around. He was super informative and told us all about the history of Cusco and Peru. We stopped along the way at monuments, statues, and museums as he described them all with detail only a local who has lived in cusco his whole life could provide. We had already booked a salkantay trek prior to arriving, but Manuels father does all kinds of tours and we would love to take a trek with him next time! Manuel even talked to our trekking company to finalize arrangements and woke up at 4am with us to see us off. Again, above and beyond. He also invited us to join him on a trip to his local neighborhood market- we were literally the only tourists there, which was a great and unique experience.
House and Accommodation:
The house is beautiful, spacious and very comfortable. Beds were great and warm with plenty of blankets. There is a room upstairs with couches, tables, and a patio with the most incredible views of cusco. There is also a garden to sit in and drink coca tea where we enjoyed hanging out with Manuel and his wonderful family. The house is about a 30 min walk from the main square or a quick 5 minute taxi ride (3 dollars or less). Truly amazing location just far enough from all the touristy hostels.
Stephanie's cooking alone is enough reason to stay here! We had many DELICIOUS meals prepared by her and learned so much about foods that are local to cusco and never would have tried otherwise. From homemade ice cream, to breakfasts with Organic coffee from their family's farm and the biggest most incredible avocados you've ever tasted, the food was never less than exceptional.
Manuel immediately welcomes you into his big, friendly family and ensures you that this is your house now! You really get to experience the culture of cusco by spending time with them, and everyone went out of their way constantly to make sure we were comfortable. Plus, a few days before we arrived they added the most adorable puppy Chema to their family, who was another highlight of the trip.
Basically, you would be crazy to stay anywhere else in cusco!
This homestay was everything one can wish for. Warm family, fabulous food, comfortable bedroom and hot shower. Value added services are available, but not pushed. The views from this hilltop home are incredible. I'd choose this lodging experience instead of a 4 star hotel any day.
