Can not say enough good things about Denis and this beautiful accomodation in the heart of Cuzco. Denis made us feel right at home from day one, so incredibly helpful and gracious! A very inspiring person.
The room was absolutely gorgeous with a spectacular view and in walking distance to all the shops and cafes of San Blas and Plaza de Armas.
Denis brought us a delicious breakfast each morning and treated us like family. He even arranged a taxi for us to make a day trip to Pisac and the llama farm which I would highly recommend!
This place is a true gem. We hope to be back here one day in the near future. Will recommend to family and friends as well.
Made our trip to Peru! Thanks Denis :)
Had a great time at Denis' place and he's such a wonderful host. The steep steps leading to the house will be overshadowed by the magnificent view overlooking the city.
Denis was great. Very nice and welcoming, and I found it very helpful that he emailed a hand drawn map of where the cab should take us and how to get to the apartment from the cab dropoff location. Happy to give us suggestions about what to do and where to dine in town. The apartment is even a bit luxuriously decorated with the stone back wall and the swanky furnishings. Denis went over the top by giving us dinner for free after my wife and I were thrown off of our horses and wanted to stay in for dinner to nurse our wounds. He also arranged our taxi to the airport the following morning, even though we had to leave quite early (6 am).
Denis was a wonderful host! His place was beautiful, the view amazing - everything was accurately described in the listing. The location was great & up in the hills of the San Blas neighborhood so it was a little quieter than down in the main square. Walking distance to everything - tons of restaurants, stores, plazas, museums, etc. The bed was comfortable, the shower was large and offered plenty of hot water, and the breakfast was delicious. Denis has great advice and he will help you have the best experience in Cusco! He called us cabs at a good rate & recommended the best restaurants. He was even kind enough to hold onto our bags while we traveled one night to Aguas Calientes.
Our trip wouldn't have been as memorable if it weren't for the great room and his guidance. I highly recommend staying here! Thank you Denis!!
Denis is an incredible person! We are so happy that we spent our final night in Peru at Saya Wasi. The view is spectacular- it can't be fully appreciated from the pictures alone, but is stunning in person. The accommodations are incredibly comfortable, and beautifully decorated. Additionally, our breakfast was delicious, and we really appreciated the fast WiFi when checking in to our flights. Finally, and most importantly, we were so glad to meet Denis and Hernan! Denis greeted us at the door and provided a wealth of information as to his favorite places and how to travel around the region. He also was willing to let us leave our luggage for a few hours before leaving for the airport, which was a lifesaver! He is trruly one of the kindest people I've met, and I wish we'd been able to stay more than one night!
The only thing I can say about Denis, and the accommodations is AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME! Denis is one of the kindest, most warm hearted people I have ever met, and you will know this within the first few seconds of being around him. He is wonderful with giving advice on places to try around Cusco, and is always available for questions. Along with Denis is Maria who is such a sweetheart - she is always so bright and chipper when you see her, and will go out of the way to make sure you have everything you need. As for the accommodations, they looked marvelous in the pictures online, but those do not do it justice - the place is such a doll, and the view is spectacular! The rooms are very private, and it totally felt like my home away from home. I know most travelers are always concerned with Wifi, and it is awesome here (along with the cable TV). The breakfast is so delicious - I highly recommend the fruit bowl, eggs, bread, and coffee :) Plus, it is delivered to your door when you request it. Truly a one-of-a-kind experience in Cusco! Would give Denis and his accommodations 10 out of 5 stars!
Denis was a great host - kind, accommodating, very knowledgable about the city. Room was exactly as pictured; very comfortable, bathroom was nice. Breakfast was delicious. He makes the best coffee in Peru :) Appreciated his help with getting us a taxi back to the airport. Will definitely stay here again if we come back to Cusco.
