Lizzy Wasi is a refurbished century- old adobe cottage that offers a unique environment, surrounded by breathtaking landscapes, ideal for relaxation and refueling. It is located in the heart of the Sacred Valley of Cusco, Peru, near to the many exciting Inca and Pre-Inca arqueological sites.
Each room is located around a quiet and flowery main patio, in front of the common areas. Common areas include a Living Room with Cable TV, Internet, couches and chairs to sit down and relax, and a cozy fireplace. In the Dining Room a buffet breakfast is served every morning; hot tea is always available, and a refrigerator and microwave oven is also there for your personal needs. The garden and surroundings are full of flowers and fruit trees, where you can sit and read, or even practice your golf putting skills .
Guests who begin their vacation at Lizzy Wasi quickly adjust to the altitude, as it's located 2,800 meters above sea level, in comparison to Cusco, which is 3,400. This means that you will have more time to explore and enjoy the mystical sights that surround you, starting from day one.
Lizzy Wasi is situated approximately a half hour drive to the archeological sites of Ollantaytambo, Pisaq, Moray, Maras, and Salinas, among others. Its’ close proximity to the Ollantaytambo Train Station will allow you to reach Aguas Calientes and Machu Picchu in 1 ½ hours. There is horseback riding, white river rafting, many adventure sports, hiking tours, walking tours, city and ruin tours, all of which we can arrange for you. Additionally, we can recommend sights around the hotel and restaurants for you to dine in.
After daily activities, return to the hotel for a Pisco Sour, or a cup of hot Coca tea, and a friendly conversation about the day’s activities, and/or what adventures tomorrow’s tours will bring.
Lizzy Wasi is managed directly by it's owner, Elizabeth Cottle, born and raised in the USA; who was captivated by the Valley's enchantment and now resides here permanently. She has made it her personal commitment to provide comfortable accommodations and detailed attention to travelers from all around the world.

My friend, Megan, and I had such a wonderful experience at Lizzy Wasi. The grounds are gorgeous with beautiful flowers and landscaping, and the atmosphere was relaxing and welcoming. The room was very cozy, and well prepared for our arrival. Florencia, the staff member who assisted us onsite, was so charming and there to help us with anything that we needed (and even to recommend when we weren't sure we needed anything!). She truly made the trip when she recommended we gaze at the stars before dinner - astounding!
This is all without mentioning that Liz was so kind and helpful - from ordering taxis to a variety of locations to dinner reservations to massage appointments. She was an absolute delight, and made everything so easy.
Nothing but the biggest of thanks to you, Liz and Florencia! I would stay again in a heartbeat!
It has been a great experience! Liz and staff at the hotel are very helpful. The room is very clean and cozy. Definitely will come back next time!
A wonderfully tranquil haven in the sacred valley. Although Liz was not at the hotel when we stayed she still called to make sure everything was ok and offer recommendations for sightseeing, restaurants and shopping. The rooms are thoughtfully decorated and the garden is a wonderful spot to relax in after a hectic day. The helpful staff, delightful children and 2 cats just add to the personality of the place.
Liz is extremely helpful from the moment we made the reservation, and we thoroughly enjoyed, if not relied upon, her wonderful tips and suggestions. Our stay in Urubamba would not have been the same without Liz and her cozy hotel.
Staying at Lizzy's hotel was like coming back home... She is so welcoming and caring. The rooms are lovely and the overall atmosphere at this hotel is very special. Too bad our travel plans did not allow to stay there longer than we wanted. But we hope to come back on the way back or so!
This is an absolute gem of a place and we had an amazing time staying there. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Liz gave us excellent recommendations on restaurants, tours and helped organize everything. The place is beautiful, cozy and is definitely highly recommended to anyone coming through the Sacred Valley.
Liz is an exceptional host.
I could fill up this section with words to describe how attentive Liz was. It seemed that she was up and ready 24 hours a day because every time you needed something she was there and sometimes before you even decided that you needed something she would offer it to you. She knows the ins and outs of what needs to be done in the area, procedures to get tickets, taxis, buses, excellent restaurant recommendations and shopping details.
She really makes a difference in your stay at her place.
The setting is one of a kind, unpretentiously beautiful with high quality service. We certainly enjoyed our stay.
About the Host, Liz
My name is Liz Cottle and I am the owner and manager of Lizzy Wasi.
I was born and raised in the USA, but have lived in Peru for 34 years. Formerly a teacher, I was captivated by the Sacred Valley's enchantment and I now reside here permanently.
I'll be more than happy to show you the wonders of the valley - arranging trips, itineraries, recommending the best spots to eat, and off-the-path sites is my specialty. Moreover, travelers from around the world feel that my B&B is their home away from home, welcomed by someone who understands their language, culture and particular needs! :)
The best thing about hosting is that we get to know people from every corner who arrive as guests, but leave as life-long friends. I've made it my personal commitment to provide comfortable accommodations and detailed attention to travelers from all around the world!
