Location Information:
Once considered an afternoon stop-over on the way to MachuPicchu, more and more visitors are deciding to make Ollantaytambo the primary destination from whence they can experience the Sacred Valley and all it has to offer. In contrast to Cuzco, the small village atmosphere, lower altitude and easy access to incredible hikes has prompted many of our guests to feel more comfortable here and thus extend their stay. Ollantaytambo is called “the last living Inka village” as it has been continuously inhabited since the 13th century. It was the town for the Inkan Nobility and High Priests and once you are here it is hard not to notice the magic. So come walk the streets of gigantic jigsaw stonework or try some chichi (Inka Beer- fermented corn) with the indigenous people who are the direct descendents of the Inkas. Let us introduce you to some of these wonderful local people who can guide you into their world, provide cultural connection within traditional communities where tourist seldom venture and lead you on stunning treks through the natural wonder.

Cool place just opposite of the Ollantaytambo ruins. Unfortunately, they had forgotten our reservation and we almost had to go to a different place. Winn was nice to help accommodate us even when it was fully booked, we just had to bounce between rooms. They let us keep our big bags there while going to Machu Picchu. There were a few ants in our room, but I could see that being normal in Ollantaytambo.

Our stay at Casa de Wow was great! The bedrooms were clean and comfortable, and it was nice and quiet at night. It is walking distance from all the sights in the beautiful town of Ollantaytambo. Wow even took us up into the crow's nest and shared with us some of the history and culture of the Inca.

Our second night stay - wonderful. Already reviewed previously (glowingly). But on this night we also got a wonderful and brief "lecture" on the roof by the owner about the "magic" within the mountains - a can't miss (even if you don't understand Spanish!).

Case De Wow is a perfect name for this lovely place. The owner welcomed us with delicious tea and local advice. The place is so beautiful and feels like home, but with a Peruvian flair. Great energy overall. The room is larger than the pictures shown and is very comfy. We had to leave early to catch a train to Machu Picchu and she had breakfast packed and ready to go for us. She also had great local suggestions for where to go and where to eat. Lastly, she organized a personal cab to take us on a tour of The Sacred Valley on our way back to Cuzco. HIGHLY RECOMMEND CASA DE WOW.

Everything was great during my stay, and the hosts made everything even better. Location wise, it is located on the aisle that overlooks the main ollantaytambo ruins and the view is pretty. Since it's a small cosy city, everything was within walking distance so we didn't need a taxi. We arrived too early and the hosts made us coca tea while we waited for our beautiful rooms. Winn even made a map that shows all the sites and places to eat which made our vacation so much simpler. Thanks Winn and Wow and Turtle! We will definitely visit again if we head back to sacred valley.

Casa de Wow was perfect for us. Winn is the best host anyone could ask for. Incredibly caring and helpful. She made us tea multiple times a day. The breakfast hit the spot and Winn even brought it to us in bed one morning when I had altitude sickness. Definitely take her recommendations for restaurants and sites. She supplies a map with a ton of useful information on it. I pretty much can't say enough good things about this Airbnb. I've seen that other people complained about a couple tiny ants in the bathroom and the slight outhouse smell in the bathroom (only in our room), but if you keep the bathroom door closed they're really not a problem. I will definitely try to stay at Casa de Wow next time I'm in Ollantaytambo. Thank you again so much Winn!

Casa De Wow!!! User Profile

Casa de Wow!!! began as the creative venture of Winn and Wow.
Winn comes from Asheville, NC in the United States. She had a three month trip planned for Peru and upon arriving in Ollantaytambo was unable to stick to her return schedule. She found the traditional culture, natural beauty and ease of life in Ollanta irresistible. Winn is into permaculture, progressive consciousness, divine feminine and spiritual adventure. She also just published her first book called, Death is a Miracle!

Wow (aka Roberto Canal Luna) is a native quechua of Ollantaytambo. His family heritage traces back to the days of the Inkas and his family home here retains original Inkan stonework. Wow is an incredible creative artist. He works in many mediums, though fabric art is his first passion. Wow also is a spiritual guide, working with the local plant spirit medicine, whacuma... his tours are amazing, authentic and unique!
