The Space

“I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself:” - Maya Angelou

Welcome to your home away from home. Relax, as you sit atop our handmade eucalyptus benches listening to the running waters of the Inkan aqueducts beneath you while you marvel at the stunning view of the ancient Inkan monuments. The location of our Casa is ideally situated on a cobblestone pedestrian street in the “old town” section of Ollantaytambo, just 5 minutes from the Plaza and all attractions. In the morning after checking your email for we have WiFi throughout the house, enjoy a tasty breakfast of eggs, fresh warm rolls and local organic jams. During the day, we’d be happy to help you organize unique excursions to amazing local sites that are off the beaten path. In the evening, enjoy a cup of warm tea from our kitchen, watch a DVD in our cozy living room or gaze at the stars from our rooftop nook. Finally retire to our beautiful and traditional Quechua (Inkan) handcrafted beds with high quality mattresses for a good night’s sleep. Once you’ve stayed with us you will know why we are called Casa de Wow!!!

Munay Matrimonial Room… Munay is quechua for love. This room has high vaulted ceilings with sky lights for a bright airy feel. It has an incredible “Wow made” tree frame bed with a double high quality mattress and wool blankets for warmth and natural comfort. Each side of the bed has a reading light and a bed-side table and each sleepy head gets two pillows. A private bathroom is attached with gas-fed 24 hour hot water shower.

Location Information:
Once considered an afternoon stop-over on the way to MachuPicchu, more and more visitors are deciding to make Ollantaytambo the primary destination from whence they can experience the Sacred Valley and all it has to offer. In contrast to Cuzco, the small village atmosphere, lower altitude and easy access to incredible hikes has prompted many of our guests to feel more comfortable here and thus extend their stay. Ollantaytambo is called “the last living Inka village” as it has been continuously inhabited since the 13th century. It was the town for the Inkan Nobility and High Priests and once you are here it is hard not to notice the magic. So come walk the streets of gigantic jigsaw stonework or try some chichi (Inka Beer- fermented corn) with the indigenous people who are the direct descendents of the Inkas. Let us introduce you to some of these wonderful local people who can guide you into their world, provide cultural connection within traditional communities where tourist seldom venture and lead you on stunning treks through the natural wonder.

  • Very cozy atmosphere and sweet staff. Wish I could have stayed longer as the Sacred Valley was one of the best parts of my Peru trip and the staff really made me feel at home.

  • Nice room for the price. Be aware there's a narrow spiral staircase, so this not for the decrepit. We booked 4 nights, but we ended up staying 7. Breakfast started getting a little monotonous by day 5. All in all a pleasant stay in a great little pueblo. After passing through Aguas Calientes on the way to Machu Picchu we realized what a good decision it was to stay at Casa de Wow in Ollanta.

  • Great for singles bunks style or the couples (matrimonial) room. Very helpful and friendly in an ancient, phenomenal setting. Wow helped us put together the next leg of our trip. Purified water for your bottles. Cool folks from around the world, curious but not pushy.

  • Casa de Wow is a very special place in a very sacred town. I would recommend anyone coming or going to Machu Picchu to consider spending time in Ollantaytambo at Casa de Wow. Roberto was a lovely host who focused on sharing his home and hometown with such kindness to travellers. In just two short days, I learned so many amazing things and was able to feel some of the energy of this special town. Casa de Wow overlooks the ruins and there is a lovely rooftop viewing area!

  • Just what I was looking for...there is no better town to stay if experiencing the culture of the Quechua is your goal...Ollantaytambo the town is a living vibrant extension of Ollantaytambo the site.

    The house and all those around are original...what a blessing Winn & Wow share with their beautiful home. Interesting folks, beautiful accommodations, homey helpful atmosphere with a bit of a bohemian twist...LOVED it and the town. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

  • Had a great stay with Winn and Wow at Casa de Wow! They are both very nice and thoughtful people. The conversations over tea were great, and Winn had lots of insights about the area, as well as suggestions for things to do in this wonderful little town. I hope to return to the area someday, and would love to stay here again!

  • WOW. Truly an oasis. Ollantaytambo in itself is the most adorable little town--but Casa de Wow was a true gem. Winn was such a gracious host and made sure we were very comfortable. She even made arrangements so we could drop off our bags prior to hiking the Inca trail. Breakfast was delightful each morning. The bed was sooooo comfortable. We wish we could have stayed longer.

    November 2012
  • We had a wonderful stay. Winn and Wow are awesome! We would definitely recommend others to stay here.

    November 2012
  • I was pretty exhausted when I came down from Machu Picchu and Winn's place was just so lovely and comforting that I fell right asleep. The next morning we all together had a wonderful breakfast after which I was strengthened enough to hike a little around Ollanta. Winn is a great person who loves to share the stories of this town. Don't miss out on Ollanta and especially not on Winn and her lovely place!

Casa de Wow!!!
About
Casa de Wow!!! began as the creative venture of Winn and Wow. Winn comes from Asheville, NC in the United States. She had a three month trip planned for Peru and upon arriving in Ollantaytambo was unable to stick to her return schedule. She found the traditional culture, natural beauty and ease of life in Ollanta irresistible. Winn is into permaculture, progressive consciousness, divine feminine and spiritual adventure. Wow (aka Roberto Canal Luna) is a native quechua of Ollantaytambo. His family heritage traces back to the days of the Inkas and his family home here retains original Inkan stonework. Wow is an incredible creative artist. He works in many mediums, though fabric art is his first passion. Winn and Wow now have an awesome team helping them manage the Casa. Mariko and Suenos are our new part-time administrators. Mariko is from Seattle, WA and a recent graduate from art school. Suenos is a local guide and from a small community in the mountains above Ollantaytambo. Sonia is our "mama" of the Casa and in charge of all domestics chores. She is from Ollantaytambo, married with three young adult children. Wider is the main Casa de Wow!!! tour guide and for the past three years has led many of our guests on wonderful local adventures. He is from Ollantaytambo. All of our team who are from Ollantaytambo speak Quechua.... those of us from the states are learning... slowly ;-)
