Irene y Oscar nos recibieron de maravilla, pasamos unos días bárbaros en su hospedaje, el lugar es hermoso tal cual se ve en las fotos, en un barrio muy pintoresco de Cusco. La habitación tiene todo lo que se necesita, está impecable, limpia y muy acogedora.
Hasta nos enviaron un taxi al aeropuerto para esperarnos! Si volvemos a Cusco nos hospedaremos aqui nuevamente!
My wife and I stayed at Nawin Cusco on our way to Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu. Oscar and Irene were terrific hosts and extremely helpful in arranging transportation from the airport and later a guided taxi ride to and from Ollantaytambo. Juan Carlos was a great tour guide along the way! The apartment we occupied was beautifully maintained, very comfortable, and we loved the location which is close to Cusco's historic district, with an easy walk to two plazas with restaurants, museums and shopping. This was our first trip to Peru, and Oscar and Irene made us feel very much at home in their country. What a great way to start our trip to Machu Picchu!
This was my second time staying here. The first time I was in the smaller space, both are great. I came back because I liked it! Sweet little apartment in a great area of San Blas. Great place to self-cater while exploring Cusco. Internet is excellent and Illa makes everything very easy, including transfers from airport.
We had a great stay at Ñawin Cusco. Illa was out of town, but arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport and take us directly there. She had coca tea waiting which was very welcome for acclimating to the altitude. The apartment is located within walking distance of many cafés, botigas, and only about a mile from the main square; although the walk back up will take your breath away! We enjoyed the seclusion of the apartment and the courtyard was a nice break from the city. We were only able to stay for 2 days before our Inca Trail hike but would've loved to stay longer if we had more time.
The host was Spanish Speaking only. Was friendly. The Area is very nice, friendly part of town, clean. The Host left a cell phone to call them with questions or call a cab. But both times I called, no one answered and there was no one at the house to answer questions. I actually got locked in the courtyard. I left the key in room when leaving and dead bolt lock to open door was locked, so could not get in room or out of the yard. I had to scale the wall and get into neighbor yard to get out with bags when leaving.
Dear Corinne, we are really sorry about the inconveniences. Is the first time we have a negative experience like this in more than two years as hosts. Unfortunately I was working of Perú for two weeks while you were in Cusco and I couldn't get your phone calls. Nevertheless, I did answer the message you send it to me.
The lock door in the yard is for guarantee the security in our home. We are immediately going to change the system to avoid this kind of situation again.
Is true that my friend Rosina, the woman you met, does not speak english. My parents and I we do and normally this is not a problem.
Thank you for your advice and all my apologies again.
Illa's apartment was great for our stay in Cusco! In a lovely area called San Blas and close the the Plaza de Armas and other restaurants and cafes. Would definitely stay there again!
Great accommodation. Lovely house in a the beautiful San Blas district. I loved my time here. The view over Cusco from the garden is incredible, and since I also worked during my time here I must say the wireless internet was speedy. My first night there was an issue with the electricity and it was promptly taken care of after a phone call. I would definitely recommend this place!

About the Host, Ñawin Cusco
Creemos que una de las mejores formas de conocer un lugar es evitando hospedarse en hoteles. La experiencia no es la misma si mientras conoces el mundo, "vives"en una casa local sin renunciar a tu independencia y comodidad. Viajar de esta forma permite conocer rincones que no aparecen en las guías turísticas, experimentar de cerca el ritmo de vida local y sentirse como en casa.
En Ñawin, mi esposo y yo haremos todo lo posible para que tu paso por Cusco sea único y tengas mucho más que contar que miles de fotos. La tranquilidad de nuestros apartamentos te permitirán descansar, recargar energías en nuestro soleado jardín e inspirarte, como todo buen viaje debe ser.
We believe that one of the best ways to know a place is avoiding hotels. The experience is not the same if mine while you discover the world you stays in a local house, without sacrificing your independence and comfort. Travelling like this allows to know places that are not in the guidebooks, experience the local lifestyle and, at the same time, feel at home.
In Ñawin we will do everything possible to make your visit to Cusco unique for you to have much more to tell that thousands of photos. The tranquility of our apartments will allow you to relax, recharge your energies in our sunny garden and inspire yourself, like any good trip should be.
