Apartment #1 is a duplex apartment with 2 separate bedrooms on the second floor. Bedroom A has two large matrimonial beds. Bedroom B has 3 single beds (one bunk bed and one single bed). This duplex apartment is great for up to 7 guests.
Our beds are new and comfortable. We provide all bed cotton linens and towels. Each bed has two alpaca blankets, a comforter and a colorful throw on top. We understand nights in Cusco could be a little too cold for some and therefore we provide a daily supply of wood for the fireplace in the first floor.

At only 5 blocks walking distance from the Main Square and surrounded by supermarkets, restaurants, public transportation, laundromats, post office, bakeries and Mercado San Pedro -the oldest and largest market in Cusco, this place is ideal for short or long-term stays. Enjoy the proximity to all touristic areas and restaurants while also enjoying the cultural flavor of appreciating locals in their daily activities and businesses.
Our apartments are in a gated safe street. People call it “cul-de-sac” because you must go through a gate to access our street. Our condominium has a security watch at night and you’ll need a key to access into it.
Additionally, we work with one of the best local travel agency to ensure good and professional service at a good price if you book with us. We offer group tours to the following places: City Tour (1.30pm-7pm), Sacred Valley Tour (8am-7pm), Maras Moray Salineras (8.30am-3pm), Tipon Andahuaylillas (8.30am-3pm) and the Rainbow Mountain (3.30am-6pm).
If group tours or collective guided activities are not for you we can also arrange a private tour with a private driver to come at your door. Our professional driver will take you to the same places at your own pace.
Finally, if you decide to book with us please note that we will require a time for us to meet on your arrival date. Contrary to hotels or hostels we do not have a 24-hours reception desk. We live not far from your place but we still need to have an idea regarding your arrival.

If you want us to coordinate your pick up from the airport, please let us know ahead of time. We will need your flight information (airline name, flight number and exact arrival time in Cusco) to coordinate the service.
