Manuel and his family was extremely helpful and welcoming. This was our first trip to South America and we had such an amazing experience. We booked tours through Manuel with his father Daniel and we saw many of the Incan ruins. I would highly recommend Manuel to my friends and family. From the moment he picked us up at the airport to the moment we left we felt safe and surrounded by family. If you are looking to experience Peruvian culture this is the place. When we go back to Peru this is where we will stay.
I recently spent six months in Cusco as a study abroad student. instead of living in a home stay through my program I decided to find my own housing. During the six months that I lived with Manuel and his family, I met well over twenty other travelers who stayed in the house. Everyone felt right at home, from mother daughter traveling duos, retired couples, and solo adventurers. I was impressed by how different all the guest were, and even more impressed by how well Manuel could accommodate for everyone’s needs. Manuel attended hospitality school and has about a decades experience in the hotel industry and it shows. There was never a guest who left feeling unsatisfied with their stay.
Manuel’s father is by far the best tour guide I have ever had. I visited several historical sites including Machu Picchu with Daniel and then later with various tour guides selected by my study abroad program. Daniel’s knowledge and style is far superior to any of the other guides I had. It is a truly unique and personal experience. Daniel will accommodate for the time you have available, your interests, and your budget.
Manuel’s mother, wife, and sister are all incredible cooks! If you want genuine Peruvian meals you will not be disappointed. I don’t think I ever found a restaurant with better lomo saltado than Manuel’s wife Stephanie made at home. She also makes wonderful soups that originate from her home town of Arequipa.
The house itself is in a great location offering views overlooking the city. Walking to the central square takes less than thirty minutes, or take a cab and be there in five minutes. The Cruz Del Sur bus station is less than a ten minutes’ walk down the hill. The airport is an easy taxi or bus ride away or Manuel can pick you up in their personal car, about a ten minute ride. It was very reassuring to see Manuel was there waiting at the airport when I first arrived.
I always felt safe walking around the neighborhood at any time. I never had any problems while walking home late from the central square. This neighborhood proved to be safer than several of the neighborhoods other study abroad students were placed in by study abroad programs.
There is WiFi throughout the house, a computer upstairs, always clean beds and a hot shower downstairs. Sometimes hot water would can run out but if everyone just takes quick showers this shouldn't be a problem. They also recently installed a brand new kitchen!
If you are looking to stay in Cusco look no further, Manuel will take care of you. There were several times when Manuel went above and beyond to ensure that all his guests had a great stay. When you stay with Manuel you become a part of the family, and you will truly feel at home.
My trip to Cusco was an experience of a lifetime. Staying with Manuel at his house turned out to be the best thing to happen for my friend and I. Their house is located very close (walking distance or a cheap taxi ride) to virtually anything, with an amazing view of the city. Manuel and his family were very welcoming and ready to help us with anything we needed. From trips to and from the airport, to meals at any time of the day, or offering advice about the local area, they made our trip much easier and enjoyable. My friend and I decided to have Manuel's father, Daniel (a tour guide himself), give us his tour of all the famous places in Cusco. We got to see everything Cusco and the surrounding areas have to offer (including Machu Picchu). If we would have tried to plan this trip on our own, we would not have gotten to see half of what they showed us. I would recommend their house and tour to anyone looking to explore the area of Cusco. If I were to ever visit again, I would stay with them again in a heartbeat. We were only with them for 10 days, but we consider Manuel and his family our close friends.
Staying at Manuel's was like arriving home. The view is amazing, the rooms cozy and Manuel and his family make you feel extremely comfortable and help you out with anything and EVERYTHING you could possibly need. This is a wonderful spot for families and just about anyone else heading to Cusco. I will send anyone I know heading to Peru Manuel's way.
Manuel's home was our first experience with Airbnb, and the bar has been set incredibly high! Manuel is the most amicable, charming, and intelligent host one could hope for, and his wife Stephanie and baby Fabio are so warm and welcoming. They are a beautiful family! From the moment we stepped out of the Cusco airport, Manuel was there to greet us and give us a ride to his home. This came as great relief to us because the amount of solicitors and taxi drivers that bombard you at the airport can be very overwhelming. While we were driving Manuel immediately dove into conversation, giving us tips for safety and getting around in the city. When we arrived at his house, he had a tray ready for us to serve us coca tea. It was wonderful! He lead us to our bedroom, which was spotlessly clean and allowed us to rest all afternoon. For our very first meal in Cusco, Manuel and his family took us to an authentic Peruvian restaurant where we tried Cuy (guinea pig) for the first time!
After having two days to explore Cusco on our own, we decided to do an 8-day private tour with Manuel's father, Daniel, who is a licensed tour guide. The tour was an amazing, unforgettable experience! We saw a number of Inca ruins, many of them off the tourist-beaten path, and concluded the tour with Machu Picchu. We saw the Amazon jungle, the deserts of the sacred valley, and stayed in villages perched high up in the Andes mountains. It was an experience like no other! I highly recommend it.
Daniel and Manuel speak very good English so communication is very easy. They have a shower with hot water, and WiFi throughout the house. Stephanie is the most wonderful cook and her breakfasts are delicious! Everything they serve is either grown on their farm or 100% organic. I would highly suggest having their hot chocolate as you will probably never have hot chocolate as delicious as theirs. All in all, they are the most humble people and my girlfriend and I are so thankful that they shared their home with us. Staying with them was the best possible experience one could ask for with Airbnb.
Finding any problems with their home and company is very difficult. However, the only one that comes to mind is that their home is located high up in the mountainside and, with the air so thin from the high altitude, walking up the steps back to their house can be pretty challenging. If you have a disability or just don't like climbing a lot of steps, there are plenty of taxis around the city that can take you up to the house.
We spend three great days in Cusco. Manuel and his family are great and very careful hosts, helping you in all your needs during your stay. Manuel helped us with the organization of our trip in Machu Picchu.
House is very clean and you benefit of a beautiful view of Cusco!!
Manuel's home is up on a hillside after a 20 minute walk from the main tourist area with the reward of great views of Cusco. We stayed for a total of 3 days book-ending a 4-day trek to Machu Picchu. Returning to Manuel's home for our final day really felt like coming home.
Manuel is an extremely accommodating and generous host. He continually offered ways to help us enjoy our stay: from brewing us coca & mint tea and arranging taxicabs, to recommending restaurants and helping plan our day (tailored to our own interests and travel style). He was not only comprehensive in the way he cared for us but also very personal and eager to share his first-hand knowledge about Cusco's current culture and history. Even as we departed, Manuel encouraged us to call him if we needed any help during our long layover in Lima.
Just a few suggestions for visitors to Manuel's home:
- The water stops running after a certain hour (this applies to all of Cusco from what I have read)
- The stray dogs are friendly enough but do bark at night so bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper.
