Hola! An opportunity to stay in our friendly Cusco apartment in a huge twin room with an ensuite bathroom & large workstation. There are windows across 2 walls and views across Cusco from the back of the flat. We are located in the popular San Blas area, close to the centre.
Our spacious room is furnished with ensuite bathroom. There are 2 beds in the room but a third can sometimes be added, please ask. Located in a quiet residential area close to the city centre, and within walking distance of all Cusco´s major archaeological sites, Casa Mirador is the perfect place to stay.
This is a quiet but social apartment, with 3 rooms and great people from all over the world. Some work here, some are just passing through. But together we keep the place nice for all of us and it´s a friendly place. If you are looking for a home for your stay in Cusco then this is the place for you. If you prefer to be waited on hand & foot in a formal environment, then please try the Monestario Hotel!

well stocked kitchen including blender & oven
hot showers in bathroom
bathroom ensuite to bedroom
good quality wifi throughout the property

Rooms are furnished with lots of storage, desk, bedding and a bedside unit. All rooms are private and have a lock.
Please ask if third bed is required.
We can provide local information and help with your stay in the area. If you would like, we can sometimes show you some of the key areas in the town.
You can choose how much you want to socialise with the other people who live here. We sometimes go out together and there are common areas. We usually find that people who like socialising meet together, but if you prefer your stay to be a bit quieter, then you can retire to your room. The choice is yours.
The property is located in a quiet & safe residential area with small shops & huge Inka stone and garden where people sit and relax. There is private security patrolling the area at night and it is one of the better areas of the city. There is very little traffic here so there are no honking horns and the air is fresh. But you are close enough to walk to all the major places of the city.
San Blas market 3 mins walk.
San Blas square 5 mins walk.
Plaza de Armas 10 mins walk.

Cusco is built in a valley between 2 mountain ranges. Most residential areas are up from the centre, as this house is. We usually walk to & from the town, but when necessary, taxis can be hailed to bring you home. The property is easily accessible for everyone.
Sorry for the strict cancellation policy. Because our rooms are often taken on a long term basis, cancellations hit us hard so we have to implement this.
Cat and Jj are great hosts, the house is friendly and fun, sharing with other guests, great hang out space and views over Cusco and the valley. Good hot showers, communal kitchen space, great location all good ! :)
This is what I love about travelling !!!! My 7 yr old son and I stayed with Cat & JJ for over a wk, extending our original stay. They were so helpful in anything we needed, really great energy and My son LOVED it as much as I did. We had the GREAT room up on the 3rd floor with the AMAZING view of Cuzco !!! such a great location and so great to have a kitchen at our disposal to use… so handy .We will be staying here every time we are in Cuzco… !!!!! THANK YOU
A very different experience from the party hostel scene-This room was quiet, private and comfortable with a beautiful view. The trek up from the plaza may leave you panting, but if what you desire is a place apart, this room is worth the hike.
Believe the pictures--the views are stupendous. Cat is an excellent host; she takes a personal interest in every guest, making sure that your stay goes smoothly, and you have the information you need for your stay in Cusco. Everything is clean and well-maintained, and the kitchen has all you need for cooking.
The house is its own small community where people get along well and sometimes share activities. if your Spanish is minimal, don't worry, English will serve you fine here.
Be prepared for a hike up the hill from the Plaza de Armas, but it is worth it--very beautiful--and quiet.
Cat y J.J son unosanfitrones muy atentos. Las habitacione son cómodas y tienen unas vistas espectacularesde cusco. El emplazamiento genial, tranquilo y seguro. Muy cerca del centro, en un barrio lleno de encantos, zonas de ocio y muy cosmopolita. Recomendamos 100% la experiencia.
I was unable to stay with Cat in the end, due to weather conditions and other factors, however; Cat was SUPER-HELPFUL throughout the entire pre-trip conversation. She went out of her way to facilitate a room at an exceptional rate, last-minute for us; and even when we weren't able to make it in the end, she even followed up with airbnb for us for a refund. Since i have been in the area, I can vouch for the great location of her property and would recommend such an amiable host to anyone!!
We spent 8nights in Cat's house and we really enjoyed our stay! We had a big room with shared bathroom and could use the kitchen facility. The house is a bit up the hill but in good walking distance and Cat is a great host!
