“I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself:” - Maya Angelou
Welcome to your home away from home. Relax, as you sit atop our handmade eucalyptus benches listening to the running waters of the Inkan aqueducts beneath you while you marvel at the stunning view of the ancient Inkan monuments. The location of our Casa is ideally situated on a cobblestone pedestrian street in the “old town” section of Ollantaytambo, just 5 minutes from the Plaza and all attractions. In the morning after checking your email for we have WiFi throughout the house, enjoy a tasty breakfast of eggs, fresh warm rolls and local organic jams. During the day, we’d be happy to help you organize unique excursions to amazing local sites that are off the beaten path. In the evening, enjoy a cup of warm tea from our kitchen, watch a DVD in our cozy living room or gaze at the stars from our rooftop nook. Finally retire to our beautiful and traditional Quechua (Inkan) handcrafted beds with high quality mattresses for a good night’s sleep. Once you’ve stayed with us you will know why we are called Casa de Wow!!!
Apu Room…. Apu is the quechua word for mountain spirit. This room is for groups of three or four persons traveling together. It is not a shared bunk room. It is downstairs and has two wonderful “Wow made” bunk beds with top quality mattresses and wool blankets for warmth and natural comfort. This room uses shared bath which has gas-fed 24 hour hot water shower.
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.
This B&B is the best I've ever stayed in. The owner Roberto took in our family like we were his own. Comfortable, clean, warm. Ollentambyo (sp) was the perfect place to do a day trip to Machu Picchu from. The Inn is an updated version of an Incan home. Good breakfast every morning and Roberto was always in the kitchen whipping up a yummy dish or drink. Highest recommendations for Casa De WOW!
