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.

The Neighborhood

My neighborhood is the safest with 24/7 guards. It has the best restaurants at the lowest prices. It is full of parks with views of hills dotted with Inca Ruins. It is just off of Ave. de la Cultura that gives you quick access by bus or taxi to the Plaza de Armas. Note: The closer you are to the Plaza de Armas the more expensive EVERYTHING is. Also you are constantly being sold something. In my neighborhood you are left alone and can relax.

Getting around

Just two blocks off of Av. de la Cultura with bus stops and taxis everywhere. A taxi to plaza de armas costs $1.50 and takes 8 to 10 minutes. A bus costs 25 cents or 70 solis and takes 10 to fifteen minutes. You can walk to Inca Ruins in 30 minutes with no tourists or admission costs.

Other Things to Note

After living here for years there is no other place that I would rather be.

  • Great stay with Richard. He was a gracious host--even while I experienced a bad case of altitude sickness. The apartment is great, looks just like the photos. 100% recommend to anyone.

  • Richard is a wonderful host and he was able to give me one of his private tours around Cusco. I appreciated his hospitality and the effort he made, to make my stay interesting and enjoyable. I highly recommend staying with Richard! His apartment is located on a small alley just a couple short blocks from Ave de Cultura--from where it is easy to transit to and from central Cusco.

  • I can highly give a strong second to all the great reviews.

    Richard is an excellent host and a great and freindly person.
    The place has everything you need and while not next to the plaza I actually prefrerred the location as you are two blocks off a main road and can get downtown on a bus for .25 in ten minutes or so. Or take a cab for $1.50. Also there are many many eating options five minutes away and the new mall if interested is open also. Supermarkets close also.

    The best part is Richards knowledge of the area and the history. His city tour was interesting and I learned a lot.

    I would not hesitate to stay with Richard. And thanks Richard for helping me recuperate from a nasty flu.

  • Richard was a great host! His tour of the city was great and he is so knowledgeable about Cusco. The room and bed are super comfortable and although 10mins taxi from the centre it was super easy to get there at anytime.

    Le quartier ou il réside est tranquille.
    Je conseille vivement cet hôte.

  • We are pleased to stay in Richard's house. It was maintained very clean and Richard offered good advice on Inca culture and Cusco city.
    Surroundings are very peaceful and within walkable distance there are lot of shops and restaurants.
    Cusco's brand new mall is around 10 Min walk. I would definitely recommend to my friends and family for Richard's home. Our family enjoyed stay in Cusco.
    All the best Ricard and God bless to you!

  • Staying with Richard was fantastic!! He was a lovely host and went beyond our expectations. He was extremely helpful and knowledgable about the city. He showed us some beautiful restaurants and bars which we would not have come across without his help. He also kindly looked after our bags while we went off on the Inca Trail for 4 days. The bed was very comfortable and clean. A must stay in Cusco. Thanks Richard!

  • Richard was lovely, and very thoughtful. He made me feel very comfortable in his home, making sure I had coffee etc, when I had to get up at the crack of dawn. The room was lovely and very comfortable with great views to wake up to. Thanks Richard!
