MIRAFLORES DOWNTOWN COZY HOME STAY
Jackie has a really nice house in Cusco. The location is really good, just a few blocks from Plaza de Arms. I can walk to anywhere without a taxi. She helped to organise my day tour to Scared Valley even I didn't stay on that day and allowed me to tidy up myself in the house after my overnight bus trip. The room is exactly as described, clean and tidy. I had some transportation issues the day I have to stay and Jackie helped me a lot to get back to the city and stay awake until mid-night for me.
Jackie is an amazing host! From making arrangements to pick me up at the airport and greeting me soon as I walked in the door. I knew this was meant to be. She immediately served me coca tea and showed me a map of the city. Told me to take it easy due to altitude and recommended places to eat. Even though I only stayed a few days it was perfect. I plan on traveling back to cusco soon and when I do this is the only place I want to stay.
The location is perfect and Jackie is so kind and welcoming.
This is a beautiful classic house at the heart of Cusco. You will be only 200 meters away from the Central Plaza of the city. Everything will be at a walking distance. Jackie is a great host. She offers you many detailed maps and an array of books about Cusco and about Peru upon your arrival. If you happen to need it, Jackie helps you arrange your sightseeing tours, gives you tips on where to exchange money, and arranges the cabs you may need during your stay. Also, they serve you an awesome breakfast in the morning! Gracias Jackie, un abrazo!
Jackie was very prompt in communication from the moment we booked. Our bus arrived from Puno at the unearthly hour of 4am and Jackie welcomed us into her home and allowed us to rest on her couch as a room was not available at that time (obviously). She invited us to join in for breakfast even though we technically weren't even checked in.
Breakfast was good - fresh juice, fruit, cereal, yogurt, fresh bread and preserves.
We stayed for 4 nights, 2 nights prior to our trek and 2 after.
We were able to store our luggage for free while on trek!
Jackie was extremely hospitable - she was kind, informative, had great recommendations, answered all our questions and pointed us to the best services (city tours, restaurants, and laundry).
Her home was like an antique museum with beautiful pieces and high ceilings.
There is ample hot water - like HOT and it was a pleasant welcome to cold cusco nights. We found the temperature in the room quite right for us.
Only drawback for us was some noisy guests during our first day where we tried taking a nap and since the walls are thin we had difficulties napping (they were probably speaking at normal tone during day time which is quite okay) but since we were tired it was distressing. Jackie was apologetic and this became a non-issue after we recovered from sleep. Bring earplugs just in case. As well as a flash light as hall ways are dark at night.
I would highly recommend staying at Jackie's and hope to meet her again in the future!
Jackie was a wonderful hostess! She was welcoming, kind, and extremely flexible with our traveling schedule. She invited us into her gorgeous home with a warm smile, and made us feel right at home. Also, her delicious breakfast options made for a great wake-up! I would highly recommend anyone visiting Cusco to stay with Jackie. The Rivero home is simply beautiful with tall ceilings, hot showers, and lovely decorations all over the house.
The place is literally next to the police station and Plaza de Armaz. Jackie was very sweet and made sure she was there when we wake up to help us win breakfast. She helped us with a tour and suggested many many sites and restaurants for us to check out.
After hiking up to Machu Picchu, it was definitely a treat to stay there. The bed was so comfortable and the lines smelled amazing.
Thank you so much Jackie, we had a great time exploring Cusco.
BOOK THIS PLACE NOW...WILL NOT DISAPPOINT! Jackie is the most wonderful host I have met! She welcomes all her guests with tea and a breakdown of the city on the family's personalized map of Cusco! Me and my roommate ended up staying 4 nights with Jackie and it shaped our trip in Cusco! She booked two city tours for us that were wonderful. We also stayed at a hostal and another hotel when we joined part of an Intrepid tour...Jackie's home was by far the best location and the best way to truly experience Cusco. Cusco is very cold and she had plenty of warm blankets on the beds, everything was clean, location is incredibly safe and convenient. I would feel safe as a small female traveling alone and staying at her home. Could not recommend this homestay more! I want my entire family to come back and stay at this place. I won't stay anywhere else when I return to Cusco someday :) There are two bathrooms upstairs so you never have to wait to use one. The only possible con is that the shower gets extremely hot so you just have to pay attention to when it starts really heating up. The internet is very fast and good!
