Other Things to Note
We have a housemaid living in the apartment in a separate room and separate toilet. She helps keep the apartment clean and safe. During the day she is mostly outside the house and interaction is minimal. She is the main interaction for the guests and can help them in questions
We have a washer and a dryer in the apartment. It is possible for our guests to use it but it will cost a small fee. Please talk to our housekeeper if you would want to use it.
In case during your reservation you would want to have an additional guest in the house, this is possible but please let maria always know beforehand. The cost for an additional person per night is US$10
Maria is our housekeeper and she does have a small bedroom separated in the apartment. she cleans the apartment and helps our local guests. She will not bother you in the day to day and till now, as you can see in the comments, all guests were very pleased.
As we are located in a small apartment building - 5 apartments - please note that after 10 pm out of respect for neighbors loud noises should be avoided.
the exact address is Calle triunfo C-4, Ap 301, Residencial Huancaro. the taxi drivers normally do not have too much ideas of the adresses sadly, so you have to go to Residencial Huancaro and when you go into it, you will see in front of you the blue building of soccer Team Real Garcilaso. the street is called Calle Industrial. the calle Triunfo is the second on the left.
The district is close to the statue of Inca Pachacutec – a very large statue.
In case there are last minute changes (flight cancellation or delay) you have to call Maria at (phone number hidden)
Very nice apartment that is comfortable and good facilities. Just be aware that live in housekeeper can be slightly intrusive at times, but did not detract from whole experience.
Three of us were going to be in Cusco for eight days, surrounding a trip to Machu Picchu. This place looked great, and it was. It's in the Huancaro area, which is important to know for the easily available cabs. It's about a mile from the more touristy area of the historic district and an easy cab ride (20 soles) from the Saqsaywaman ruins, which shouldn't be missed.If you go, come prepared with some degree of Spanish knowledge unless you plan to stay in one of the best hotels. We also very much enjoyed the San Blas area of town, which is an easy walk from the historic center. Maria, the housekeeper, has a room in the apartment and is very sweet. She gave us Coca tea when we arrived, which we badly needed because of the altitude. We very much enjoyed this space.
Dirks Apartment ist wunderschön und einfach zum Wohlfühlen. Dirk hat sich gut darum gekümmert, dass wir eine Ansprechperson bezüglich unserer Ankunft haben. Das Apartment ist gut gelegen und das Zentrum leicht erreichbar. Die Bewohner des Hauses und vor Allem Maria sind sehr hilfsbereit gewesen.
Easy communication with Dirk. Dirks appartement is just outside Cusco. Taxi's into town very easy (Maria will call them when needed) Can easily sleep 6. Fully equiped. Only negative is the house has very cold feel. We had sunny winter days upto 25 degrees and still very cold during the day. Plenty of blankets / heaters for the night. Excellent for longer stay.
Muy buen barrio
El departamento perfecto, ordenado, amplio, comodo.
Nos gustó mucho estar en este departamento por una semana.
Both Dirk and his wife did their best to make us feel welcome here! The photos on the website are exactly what it looks like, and the neighborhood is quiet and feels very safe. My husband had to travel back to the States for a week and leave me alone with our four children, and not once did I feel uneasy or unsafe. It is close enough to Plaza de Armas and all the tourist spots in the city without having to listen to any of the noise associated with it. I would say that the only drawback was that the hot water was not always available. But the kitchen was nice and well-stocked with dishes/bowls/pans and the master bedroom had a heater - perfect for the cold winter nights here.
We enjoyed very much our stay in Cusco. The apartment is very well located, well kept and comfortable. Maria (the person that maintains the apartment) was very helpful and friendly. She is an amazing host. We have no words to express our gratitude. I would do it all over again and I highly recommend it.
