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 ;-)
