Interaction with Guests
i work monday to saturday from 9-6pm in my boutique/store in san blas (hilocusco) so the house is completely quiet during the day. i am in most nights and during the day sunday and am totally up for sharing local knowledge and information regarding trips etc.
whats wonderful about san cristobal is that it's on the edge of cusco though you feel like you're living in the countryside. i live in the last house overlooking cusco and it's a short walk to the centre of town.
a taxi costs about 4 or 5 soles to most places in the centre. walking down is lovely, walking up is a bit more uphill!
Other Things to Note
fantastic view of ausangate mountain... cristo blanco overlooks the house.
am up for chats and sharing information but really appreciate quiet from 11-6am at least!
A cozy little spot for a few nights in cusco! The room is a loft space and best for one not so tall traveller at a time! Eibhlin is wonderful and very helpful. She knows the town better than anyone and is always willing to share her experience! Her place is close to the heart of Cuzco!

Eibhlin has a lovely home and was a wonderful hostess - I would definitely stay here again. When our cab driver took us to the wrong address, Eibhlin left her shop to come get us and take us to the house. The room is very cozy and the pictures do not do justice to the view she has of Cuzco. It is literally across the street from the Sacsayhuaman ruins. We did not mind the walk to the plaza at all - it was a nice walk and very short. Thank you for a great experience, Eibhlin!
It was a pleasure to stay with Eibhlin. She is generous and welcoming and made me feel at home. She gave me tips and invited me out with her to local events. The walk back up the hill is a bit steep but I really enjoyed staying just a little out of the main part of cusco. It is still close to everything and gives you a slightly different perspective on life then you would see as a tourist usually. I would happily stay here again.
Superbe maison avec vue sur les toits de Cusco. Décoration andine très soignée et agréable. Les deux chambres que nous avons occupé étaient propres et bien équipées. Eibhlin et Bonie Honey nous ont réservé un accueil chaleureux et nous ont donné de bons conseils.
Cuisine bien équipée. L'emplacement est très haut dans la ville ce qui permet la vue déjà évoquée mais ne pas sous-estimer l'effort physique pour y accéder.
Staying at Eibhlin's place was great, just far enough away from the energy of the main square, but close enough to be convenient. Although she was gone for the majority of the time we were there, she still made us feel welcome and at home.
