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!
Eibhlin is a wonderful host. She introduced me to her baby and her friends upon entering her home and offered me some delicious meal. The location is top notch. It is right across from Sacsayhuaman, overlooking Cusco. You will be treated to a spectacular view day and night. She also took care of me, calling a taxi to the station and make sure the price is right. Overall, my experience in Cusco would not have been this joyful had she not been my host.
Eibhlin owns a wonderful house with an overwhelming view on Cusco. She made me feeling home from the first moment and I had an amazing stay in her cosy house! I absolutly advise you to don´t miss spending some days with her, if you make your way to Cusco.
Eiblih was a great and helpful host! Her place was amazing - the view over Cusco was very refreshing after several nights in a hostel downtown. I felt very safe and comfortable. Eibhlin was happy to chat and give recommendations for what to do and where to eat. Definitely recommend staying there!
It was an amazing experience staying with Eibhlin. She made us feel at home instantly. It was an easy going experience and she was very flexible with our requests. The house is exactly want we wanted- a cozy, quaint loft and amazing views of cusco! She provided great recommendations around Cusco- especially non tourist spots! Again, it was a great experience staying at this Airbnb- I would highly recommend this accommodation!
Eibhlin was incredibly sweet and her son was adorable. She has a shop in town and is there during the day, but is easy to get a hold of if you need her. I recommend checking out her shop as well; it's rad. The house is very artistic and high up on a hill. The room is perfect and the bed comfortable. There is not a ton of noise in the morning on the street so one could sleep in if you wanted, but who wants to do that on a vacation? get out there and explore the city. Eibhlin has great advice on where to go and what to do. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Cusco.
Eibhlin is a very friendly and accomodating host. She was very supportive in getting around both in her home and in the city. We really enjoyed our discussions, her fantastic baby son and her art work.
The location is beautiful, some of the best views of Cusco from her doorstep.
