About this listing
Hi there, we're a homestay option a few hours from machu Picchu and a great place to start or end your journey to the Inca Ruins.
We're open again after a heavy rainy season and have already had some fantastic airbnb guests. We're also almost done with some important renovations....first exciting news HOT SHOWER! Yes, we're excited too. Also, we've got two doubles and a new single room almost finished so we can make repairs on the other buildings.
This room is for 2 people and is private. Normally it has two single beds in it. Outdoor bar, campsite with adobe oven and a grill. Hammocks, two rivers, our farm to explore, roast your own coffee or chocolate. Eat with the family, speak some Spanish and all a few hours walk from Machu Picchu. Package deals for Dinner, bed and breakfast.
We're constantly renovating and upgrading our garden and facilities. Recently we added a new grill up at the main house and we're about to start work on a new toilet block right next to the original guest rooms. The plunge pool still hasn't happened....we'll get there eventually.
A stay with us is a rare and individual experience of Peruvian family life in the countryside where most people make their living from agriculture. We are nestled down by the river in a stunning valley with waterfalls and tributaries winding their way through the tropical vegetation. We have optional workshops such as coffee and cocoa roasting for you to take away some of your own organic presents for friends and family; and there is the chance to take local walks and visit our farm and see how locals experience this landscape.
Essentially, a stay with us is what you want it to be. We may just be a convenient stopping-off point or perhaps a chance for you to experience living in a place cut-off from the main arteries of Peruvian tourism. Whatever your reasons for visiting we're sure you'll love it here.
Access to main house, shared common room and bathroom from room. Gardens, dining room, patio and the forest beyond.
Interaction with Guests
We are always somewherre near and love to chat but we're equally aware that some people want to relax and just read without being disturbed. We're happy to be as visible or invisible as you want and there's plenty of space if that's what you need. Just let us know :)
Our area is really what's left of a once thriving community devastated by floods in 1998 and 2010. It's remote, peaceful, full of tropical plants and a real change for most of our guests. We have few neighbours but a lot of lovely things to see, nice walks and the opportunity to switch off from the world (no phone or internet).
There are taxis which pass on the main road 15 minutes above the house but no traffic around the property which makes for a relaxing stay. If you like walking you can even go by foot to the hot spring in Santa Teresa (May to November best) in under 2 hours.
Other Things to Note
We're farmers so sometimes we're not at the house and we don't always have a chance to get to internet to check emails. We have on occasion found people waiting for us at the house after a day on the farm and luckily everyone has been wonderful about it, but we do ask you to make sure you let us know your rough time of arrival so we're there to meet you :)
We're a family, we have a daughter who loves to meeet our guests and a couple of dogs who are rather friendly. Please feel at home while your with us. We're non-smokers so if you do smoke could you do it outside away from the house and not in your room. Try to take your shoes off before going inside if you're muddy and other than that enjoy yourself and let us know if there's anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable.
