Interaction with guests

I am retired so I am available to answer any questions you may have and am free to give you tours. Just pay the low cost taxi fares and buy me lunch and I will show you why I love this city so much.

Other things to note

After living here for six years there is no other place that I would rather be. Cusco is the best place to retire to in South America based on the cost of living and the availability of cultural activities. You never get bored in beautiful Cusco, after all it is the Navel of the Universe according to the Inkas and I agree.

The room is nice and clean, it's a bit far off but you can take a taxi to the city for 6-8 sol (aprox 1,50usd). Richard also did a hike with us for free. We visited some ruins which are just getting digged out. How often will you get such a chance? :) Thanks Richard!

Richard's place was great and Richard offered tons of great advice on what to do in the Cusco area. We would definitely stay with him again!

Richard was an excellent host! He was very accommodating and always made sure I had some activities planned. He has wealth of knowledge of the Cusco area and had lots of suggestions for things to do in the area. Richard's apartment was clean and the bedroom had a great view of the city. The bathroom was clean and the water was hot. The area is filled with many restaurants and shops. I would defiantly book a stay at Richard's place for my next stay in Cusco.

Richard is a lot of fun to stay with. He is a great host and super willing to help. His place is a little far out but it's right near a major road where you can easily grab a cab (and a large grocery store is on that road which I loved). The city was shutting off the water often in the neighborhood, but we still managed to both shower.

Richard is a very friendly and helpful host. He showed us around at the first evening in Cusco and took care of our bags while we were at Machu Picchu. The place is good value. Overall a recommendation!

Richard's place was very cozy in a quiet neighborhood of Cusco. There is a beautiful view out the window and the area is walkable with stores and restaurants very nearby. Downtown Cusco is a long-ish walk or super cheap and short taxi or bus ride away. Richard was extremely attentive, welcoming, friendly, and helpful! I followed all his advice for seeing Machu Picchu and other sites in the area and it worked out perfectly! He has a real passion and respect for Cusco and Peru. Very highly recommended!

Retired in Cusco for four plus years after living in Costa Rica and Ecuador. I offer one half and full day hikes to neighborhood Inca Ruins and city tours that are included with stay. Knowledgeable of Inca history and night life options of eateries and music clubs. I once played in a local Rock and Blues band. My neighborhood has the best food at the lowest prices in Cusco. Stay with us and experience the best of Cusco at the lowest prices. A new mall is now open just a few blocks away that features an 8 plex movie theater just in case you get tired of hiking. Richard
