STORAGE: We are often asked if we can keep luggage in our storage room. To all in this situation please note that our storage facility is ONLY available to returning guests. This is, to individuals who made two reservations with us. If you are in this situation, please feel confident to inquire. We'll gladly ask you to bring your bags into our storage place (at our house) and to pick your bags up (from our house) upon returning.
To all other guests with only ONE reservation we suggest you ask you plan ahead and ask your next accommodation to store your bags for you. We have different apartments and space is limited.
IMPORTANT We ask that you notify us of your arrival time prior to the day when your reservation starts. Remember we do not have a front desk where you could just arrive and find someone at any time. To provide you with the best service and to avoid potential inconveniences we ask that you provide an arrival time so we can provide instructions, coordinate your pick up from the airport (optional) and be in front of the apartment or at our house when you get there.
To coordinate your pick up from the airport (only) we'll need your flight information \airline name, flight number and arrival time in Cusco. We will then send a driver with a sign on hand to meet you at the airport. Please inquire if interested.
LOCATION. Only 3 blocks from the QORIQANCHA, an Inca fortress located on the main Avenue (Avenida El Sol), and 5 blocks from the main square (Plaza de Armas), this place is ideal for all visitors. Cusco, the Imperial City, is the departure point for beautiful excursions and walks that will be unforgettable: Machu Picchu, Sacsayhuaman, the Sacred Valley, the Manu Park, Rainbow Mountain, and other beautiful places.
So come and join me in this wonderful ancient city!

Cusco is a very cosmopolitan city full of tourism. However, the neighborhood in which the duplex is located has the local flavor and tranquility the center of town has already lost. Neither too far away from the Main Square (only 5 blocks walking distance /10 to 15 minutes), and neither too closed that you won't be able to sleep with all the activity and noise beating all night.
Only three blocks down the street is one of our favorite coffee shops, La Valeriana. It is open early for breakfast and lunch, and close late for dinner or supper. This is an inexpensive place where you won't feel rush. Wi-Fi is available.
Supermarkets are right outside the entrance gate
Feel like a local as you wander through the streets of Pavitos, Tres Cruces or along Avenida Grau. I'll share more of my favorites places and routes when you get here.
Cusco is not a tremendously big city that you need to take a taxi to be somewhere. Everything (almost everything) could be done by walking. But taxis in the city and around are not expensive, an excerpt from the airport, there are quite cheap.
The city is also full of buses, but I would not recommend them. They are usually crowded and you expose yourself to pickpockets.
Please note the following;
CHECK IN TIME: STARTS AT 12PM. Early check in may be available so please inquire. If it is not, you are welcome to drop your bags at my house, which is literally right across the apartment- and come back later.
CHECK OUT TIME: ENDS AT 10AM. If you are taking a late flight or a bus that usually leaves at night please let me know. You still need to empty the apartment by 10am, but could drop your bags at the storage room in my house and pick them up at an accorded time.
PICK UP FROM THE AIRPORT as a courtesy to our guests. We can coordinate your PICK UP from the airport (only). Simply request it after making your reservation by providing the following information to us.
(1) Flight company, (2) Flight number, and (3) Exact time of arrival into Cusco airport.
We will send our driver to meet you and bring you to your apartment. Our driver will be carrying a sign with your name on it. Simply look for your name after picking up your bags and exiting the airport.
Our driver's car is good for up to 4 people with regular bags *. If your group exceed 4 you will need a second car. We will arrange this service for you but you will have to pay for this extra car. The cost will be 20 soles, which is cheaper than if you were to hire a taxi from the airport on your own. Please inquire !
CURRENCY and EXCHANGE RATE The currency in Peru is EL NUEVO SOL. The exchange rate is approximately USD 1= S/. 3.20) If you bring American dollars or Euros, do not exchange them in airports or banks. Their exchange rate will be lower of what you could get in the streets, here in Cusco. However, and this is important, if you bring US dollars, make sure you bring NEW BILLS. All damaged or broken bills won't be accepted in Cusco.
This is an entire two-floor apartment just for you.
Interaction with guests
We have different accommodations in the same street. Our house which is also our office is right in the curve of the street. Feel free to come if needed. Just let us know prior to come.
Reaching us in person or by phone or email is easy. We will answer within half an hour whenever possible.
