The apartment is secure in a gated condominium where we also have other two apartments.
If you come by car, you'll be able to park your car right outside the condominium, but please remember that even though this is a gated cul-de-sac street, it is still a public -a not private- area.

This service is only available for up to 5 days.

Our office is right across the condominium and we can easily get hold by email, text or phone.

Simply provide your flight information. .Our drivers are professional and experience local drivers with whom we have been working for years already.

The cost for the service (20 soles) is cheaper than what they charge at the airport and we will even pay for your pick up from the airport if your reservation is a minimum of two nights. We'll monitor your arrival to the apartment where we will be waiting for you. Our driver will go to the airport with a sign on hand. The sign will have your name written on it (the name in your reservation or the one you will be providing us if different) -so after picking up your luggage, exit out throughout the airport door and look for your name in the outside crowd. The ride from the airport to the condominium is 15 mins approx. Please inquire if you have a particular request.

Our office is just across the street –literally! So if you need anything you could reach me easily and quickly. I personally meet every guest upon arrival and show them around the house.

Check in starts at 12pm. Checkout ends by 10am. I will be happy to accommodate earlier check-ins or later check outs if it doesn't conflict with another guest(s) leaving on your arrival date or coming on your departure date.

Cusco is a very cosmopolitan city full of tourism. However, the neighborhood in which the duplex is located has the local flavor and tranquility the center of town has already lost. Neither too far away from the Main Square (only 6 blocks walking distance /10 to 15 minutes), and neither too closed that you won't be able to sleep with all the activity and noise beating all night.
Only three blocks down the street is one of our favorite coffee shops, La Valeriana. It is open early for breakfast and lunch, and close late for dinner or supper. This is an inexpensive place where you won't feel rush. Wi-Fi is available.
Supermarkets are right outside the entrance gate

Feel like a local as you wander through the streets of Pavitos, Tres Cruces or along Avenida Grau. I'll share more of my favorites places and routes when you get here.


Cusco is not a tremendously big city that you need to take a taxi to be somewhere. Everything (almost everything) could be done by walking. But taxis in the city and around are not expensive, an excerpt from the airport, there are quite cheap.

The city is also full of buses, but I would not recommend them. They are usually crowded and you expose yourself to pickpockets.

Please note the following;

CHECK IN TIME: STARTS AT 12PM. Early check in may be available so please inquire. If it is not, you are welcome to drop your bags at my house, which is literally right across the apartment- and come back later.

CHECK OUT TIME: ENDS AT 10AM. If you are taking a late flight or a bus that usually leaves at night please let me know. You still need to empty the apartment by 10am, but could drop your bags at the storage room in my house and pick them up at an accorded time.

PICK UP FROM THE AIRPORT as a courtesy to our guests. We can coordinate your PICK UP from the airport (only). Simply request it after making your reservation by providing the following information to us.
(1) Flight company, (2) Flight number, and (3) Exact time of arrival into Cusco airport.
We will send our driver to meet you and bring you to your apartment. Our driver will be carrying a sign with your name on it. Simply look for your name after picking up your bags and exiting the airport.

Our driver's car is good for up to 4 people with bags. If you are a group of 5 people, a second car will have to be hired. We will arrange this service for you but you will have to pay for this extra car. The cost will be 20 soles, which is cheaper than if you were to hire a taxi from the airport on your own. Please inquire !

CURRENCY and EXCHANGE RATE The currency in Peru is EL NUEVO SOL. The exchange rate is approximately USD 1= S/. 3.38) If you bring American dollars or Euros, do not exchange them in airports or banks. Their exchange rate will be lower of what you could get in the streets, here in Cusco. However, and this is important, if you bring US dollars, make sure you bring NEW BILLS. All damaged or broken bills won't be accepted in Cusco.

Interaction with guests

As soon as you make your reservation, you could count on me getting involved. I'll offer to coordinate your pick up from the airport if needed. And upon arrival I'll meet with you to show you the apartment and give you restaurant recommendations, possible daily activities and tours. Then I'll give you the keys and show you how everything works in the apartment so you know everything you need to know. Contacting after that is simple and easy. You could come over to my house, send me a text or call me. I notice that (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) application works the best and therefore it will be the preferable way to reach me. But calls, emails, facetime, or text works just the same. I try to reply immediately whenever possible. And I don't mind if you give my phone number to your travel company, especially when you will be doing the Salkantay, Lares, or Inca Trails. You do not intrude into my privacy if you let me know you are doing just fine or if you let me know what you need. I want to be part of a pleasant experience and I am grateful for your preference.
