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!
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.
Stayed two nights in this pleasant home. Eibhlin was a welcoming host and was quick to offer suggestions and arrange a cheap cab for my early flight in the morning. Great place to stay if you're passing through Cuzco.
The host canceled this reservation 33 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Eibhlin is a wonderful host! She is knowledgeable about the city and transportation and is incredibly helpful. The room she offers is cozy and pretty private. Her advertisement doesn't lie- she has a spectacular view of Cusco from her home. Thank you again Eibhlin for a wonderful stay!
Eibhlin is such a wonderful host and made sure everything was prepared for me when I arrived (despite her not being there at the time). I was glad to have met her eventually and she turned out to be even more wonderful in person.
A great place to stay if you need some peace and quiet in Cusco. A definite home away from home.
This is a cozy house with a great view of Cuzco, and only a short walk (up&down hill) from Plaza de Armas. Eibhlin was a spectacular host, offering valuable insight into the goings-on around Cuzco. AND, she was kind enough to let us do our laundry. We'll go back! If there's a drawback to the place it might be that the walk back at night could make a single woman uncomfortable. The place is safe, don't get me wrong, but there is a stretch of a walk that a new traveler will want to be familiar with before heading out alone after the bars close.
Spectacular views of the ruins from your room. Warm and friendly hosts with a gorgeous breakfast. Comfortable rooms.
