We can coordinate your daily tours to the Sacred Valley, Maras Moray, Salineras, Rainbow Mountain, Sacsayhuaman. Inquire if interested.

Interaction with guests

We manage different properties around the house, so when we are not busy outside the house we are working, reading or listening to music inside. Talking to us is easy- whether in person, by (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)/email or by phone.
IF you need help planning your trip or need to make reservations for any daily tour like Sacred Valley, City Tour, Maras Moray, Andahuaylillas or the Rainbow Mountain, just let us know in advance. We work with one of the largest and most reliable travel agency in Cusco who will pick you up from home or the Main Square.

The neighborhood

The house is in a cul-de-sac curve, very quiet and very safe street. Not that the neighborhood is not safe, but it feel just extra safer having to access a gate to enter.
My house is the large White House with green fences in the curve coming down the street of Pasaje Esmeralda. The entrance is on the left side of that house. Look for number 8 (house number- not 8-A).
I work from home. Finding me should not be a problem.

Getting around

AIRPORT PICK UP AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Please note that we can arrange our driver to go to the airport to pick you up if you provide us with your flight information at least 24 hours in advance of your arrival.

This service is not included in your reservation and therefore you will have to pay the driver 20 soles ($6 USD approx.) directly upon arrival.
The cost of this service is 20 soles, which is an approximate USD $6 and it will be much less than if you were to get a taxi at the airport on your own.
This is how it works:
1) Provide your flight information (airline name, flight number and exact arrival in Cusco's airport).
2) We'll send a driver with a sign on hand, and your name on it. He'll wait outside- so after gathering your belongings, go out through the door and look for him.
3) The ride is only 15mins long and I'll be waiting for you at the house.
Upon arriving, you will need to pay the driver 20 soles for the service.

Plan on paying some extra if your flight gets delayed and you are unable to let us know in time to prevent the driver -and he has to wait for you an hour or so.

Also, be aware that there are a lot "last minute" travel agency waiting for last minute travelers. You could buy your tickets in town and safe up to $100 per person. Most of those offers are not what they seem to offer. We ask that you don't get too long in coming out. The driver may think you did not come and decide to take other passengers looking for a ride.

Up to 4 people with small to medium size suitcases could fit in one car. Larger groups or people with large suitcases or with more than one suitcase per person will need 2 cars.

If interested, please inquire and provide your flight information:
- Flight number (ex: LA2034, AV808, etc).
- Exact arrival time in Cusco's airport

Other things to note

May thru August is considered "high season". This means that you should plan your trip in advance. If you come to Cusco with "nothing" organized or booked, you take the chance of paying much more than the regular prices or you risk not finding what you need.
Unless you are doing any of the three treks: Inka Trail, Salkantay Trek or Lares Trek, you could only go to Machu Picchu by train, so the first thing to do is to purchase your tickets online. You will also need the entrance ticket to the Sanctuary in Machu Picchu and the round trip bus from/to Aguas Calientes to the Sanctuary. These two things can be purchased upon arrival if you cannot purchase them online.

Trains to Machu Picchu depart from two different stations: Poroy & Ollantaytambo. Poroy is only 20 minutes outside Cusco. Ollantaytambo is 2 hours. Therefore tickets to/from Ollantaytambo are a little cheaper.
From/to Ollantaytambo you will have to take a minivan.
I offer some tour options -including Machu Picchu- that I will be sending to you for your information. These other tours can be reserved with 24 hours in advance.

Monica is a wonderful host- she welcomes you with tea, gives you a lovely handmade map and is incredibly helpful with information and suggestions. Her house is a 10-15 minute walk to the main plaza and very quiet at night. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here!

Monica and her accommodation were both top notch. She was extremely friendly and helpful. Her place was immaculate and authentic. I just wanted to take pictures of her whole house. The only thing that was unlucky for me was I didn't see that she had cats, and I'm allergic. Fortunately, her place was very clean and I had little issues. I would book again.

Monica is one of the best AirBnb hosts I've had! She was super responsive after my booking and made sure that I felt at home the whole time I was there. I would highly recommend staying at Monica's while in Cusco!

My stay at Monica's was so delightful, I ended up extending an extra week. The house is spacious, full of light and brilliantly decorated. Sleeping conditions were great...very comfortable bed, shutters that block out all light, quiet neighborhood. There is also a heater which I didn't need to use. Showers were always hot with good water pressure. Monica is a superb host. She was always available and very helpful but always respectful of my privacy. She has a good connection with local tours and was a great asset with my travel plans. Monica went out of her way to make me feel at home. She fixed me a big healthy breakfast every morning, even on my last when I had to leave at 6AM to catch a bus. Thanks Monica for making my stay in your beautiful city so memorable.

Monica's place is in a perfect location... A quick walk to the central square area, but still secluded when you didn't want the hustle. It's even an even quicker 2 minute walk to the collectivos to Ollantaytambo (10 soles one-way) if you're heading to Machu Piccu at some point. Monica greeted me with a copy of her famous map and was on hand to give advice, and always had coca tea available. She just moved places (a few doors down) days earlier, but I would have barely noticed if she hadn't have mentioned it. A bigger room happened to be available, and she happily upgraded me for the non-existent inconvenience. Definitely the place I'll stay when I return!

The host is very nice. She can speak English and gives me a map that she made. This house is good because it locates in local neighborhood. It would be better if host provide a heater.
