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.

  • 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.

  • I can't rave enough about my stay at Lizzy Wasi and the time spent with Liz. It was our favorite place in which we stayed during our 2 week trip through Peru (which included 4 star/5 star hotels). The place is absolutely picturesque, comfortable and impeccably clean. The morning breakfasts were really terrific but the care and attention from Liz really made our stay unforgettable. She really is the hostess with the mostest! We were incredibly sad to leave Urubamba, and I can't wait to go back for another stay.

  • Our time spent at Lizzy Wasi was delightful! It was everything one imagines when gazing at the photos of the picturesque hotel...sitting around a cozy fire in the salon sharing stories with other guests of our day's adventures over a warm cup of cocoa tea. Liz makes it her mission to insure that every guest achieves his/her travel goals, no matter how ambitious. She has a warmth that makes guests feel like family. Her beautiful hotel is equally as memorable--from the authentic adobe details to the landscaping respectful of the environment. We will be talking about Lizzy Wasi long after our Pisco Sour Mix is finished!

  • Awesome BnB. Probably our most favorite stay so far. Liz is amazing! She will take care of you from the moment you enter the door and even way after you leave. I'd stay here again in the future.

  • Liz has a beautiful BnB in Urubamba. Liz is a very knowledgable and attentative host. We felt very comfortable staying with Liz and look forward to returning in the future. We actually got locked out of a different accommodation at 9:30pm, located near Liz and she graciously opened the door and offered to switch the night we had reserved to avoid being left without a place. Liz is a very kind and informed host.

  • Lizzie Wasi was a lovely hotel in a beautiful, serene setting, and Liz was a most wonderful hostess. She could not have been more helpful, going way beyond the call of duty helping us find a local doctor and translating for us. She also had really helpfully tips for Cusco and Lima- all her recommendations were spot on. Thanks Liz!

  • Lizzy was the perfect hostess. She couldn't have done more to be kind and helpful . Everything was lovely in our room, the garden is lovely and breakfast very nice. Hard to ask for anything more.

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!
