Renting your Cusco apartment is about as good as it gets. Other than the lack of two or three sharp knives and an effective can opener, the week's stay was more than pleasant. All applicances worked; there there was never a shortage of hot water, and the double bed was comfortable. I would stay with you again. What makes your apartment unique are the services of Ernesto Cusi Cusi who doubles as a trouble shooting concierge and optional tour guide. You struck gold with Ernesto. As a senior citizen, I more than appreciated his services carrying my heavy suitcase up the four flights of steps, helping me cross Cusco's uneven cobblestone streets, and his willingness to share his knowledge of Cusco and Peruvian history. I met his family and enjoyed every single minute with them. We ended close friends and I am anticipating a future trip to Cusco. Dave Retired

Owner response: Thank you for your comment. It is always a great shared pleasure to attend so nice guests. Small details like sharp knives and can opener, are regularly checked and renewed in the apartment after each stay. We would be pleased to welcome you again.

The payment process and communication was very good with the owner. our only problem was the apt is equipped for 4 adults and maybe 2 small children. we were told 6 adults fit comfortably but the two futon beds are too small for two adults. you may be able to accommodate one adult and a very small child. The shower wall can use some heavy cleaning. Ernesto was okay. He is very knowledgeable of cusco. we did not get tours with him since we found cheaper prices and then he wanted to charge us for extra pillows for the 5th and 6th person even though the rental agreement was for 6 people but owner took care of it eventually. An extra bed would have been helpful but was being charged for it. overall I would have given 4 stars if not for the issue with the beds. location is okay if you don't mind not being in the center of cusco. quick cab ride.

Owner response: It's important to know the needs of the people that your organized for. The pictures clearly show all the apartment equipped for 4-6 persons. The group that stayed in the apartment expressed appreciation to my caretaker Ernesto. Beside, no problem was noted from anyone in the group about the shower walls. Special thanks to them for leaving the apartment clean.
Stayed here for one week with my parents and my two sisters. The condo was very comfortable with all the listed amenities. It is a little ways from the main plaza, but as mentioned taxis were not a problem and very cheap. The Huancaro market just around the corner was wonderful. Katherine was very responsive via email and very accommodating, my family had a few mix ups about dates but Katherine was very understanding and had no issues making a few changes. Ernesto was awesome! Him and his wife helped us book a city tour, a sacred valley tour and made all arrangements for our trip up to Machu Picchu. They made it so easy and all the trips went very smoothly. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a great vacation in Cusco.

Owner response: Thank you for your review. I'm very concerned to offer the best during a so special travel in Inca's country. Best wishes to all of you to finish this year 2012 in a very high state of mind received through Inca's spirit.

We had a very nice week’s stay in Cusco based in this apartment. It’s about a 30-minute walk from the Plaza de Armas; most of the time we walked it in the pleasant Cusco weather; when we were tired coming back, a taxi was always easy to find and cost only 3-5 soles (US$1.00-$1.60). When we arrived, the caretaker’s wife met us at the airport as promised without a hitch. The caretaker is also in the tour business, so we booked a two-day Sacred Valley tour through him as well. The apartment is a fourth-floor walkup in a modern building in its own compound with a gate keeper, and was clean with a nice washer/dryer and kitchen; utensils, however, are very sparse, i.e., only one very flimsy dull knife for cutting anything. Dining area and living room were more than adequate for two people. The two bedrooms are both bright and sunny during the day. At night, Cusco gets a bit chilly, but with the three space heaters we were able to keep the temperature very comfortable. Hot water was always very hot, and we always had plenty. Loud neighbor only one night, apparently drunk and convinced he was a singer. Wifi worked exceptionally well without a glitch. Owner was very responsive via email, so we had a good feeling that we would be taken care of well, and we were. Security deposit refund was very prompt via PayPal. This apartment is a good value and you’ll be pleased.

We spent a week in this apartment with our two young children. It was great to have all the space and wifi worked well. Having Ernesto and his wife as a local point of contact was also very helpful and they waited at the aiport for us even though we were over an hour late. It is a bit out of the heart of Cusco, though, so be prepared to take a taxi if you want to go out to dinner, get to a larger supermarket, see sites, etc. As far as I could tell, we were the only tourists in the area. That has pros and cons depending on the type of experience you want. The owner was also very helpful and provided maps and was very prompt on returning the security deposit.

Owner response: I thank you for your review. As you know the Heart of Cusco is all Historic without new construction. To choice the freedom of a modern apartment is according with the myriad of taxis always available and so cheap. This quite residence area preserves typical atmosphere at only 6mn drive from the Historic center.
Stayed at this property in Sept 2011, it was as described in the listing. However the surrounding area and units were still under construction. Katherine was the very best. She was so helpful in getting me settled, she provided a cell phone for my use during my time there. And she followed up regularly before and during my stay. The apt was fine for 2-4 people, had a nice kitchen and washer/dryer that came in handy from all the hiking. Ernesto, her Cusco mgr, turned out to be terrific. He was available at all times, made sure we were takend care of and safe. And he went out of his way to help us get around, see the sights, and transport us anywhere we wanted to go. Highly recommend this venue for those going to spend multipl days in the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: This condo is 'my sweet home' during my vacations in this wonderful country. I thought every details, all the decoration. Ernesto assisted me during this period of installation supervising all the jobs when I was away. His reliability never failed, always a step ahead to prevent a difficulty, always the best solution. I met him during my first travel years ago and he was my guide to discover Cusco and all the places of interest. Used to travel alone, I make security my first priority to keep my standards of comfort.
Why the Owner Chose Cusco:
Close to historic center, the access is about 5mn. Airport is about 8mn. Night life is amazing with festivals all along the year. The special Inca's energy is everywhere. You won't be the same after a stay in Cusco. My apartment is a bridge between north american comfort and the opening of the conciousness to an other way of life. The best to discover on your own inca's spirit effects.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
All amenities for your comfort to make you feel 'at home' and free your mind. Walk around this secure residence, you'll discover a large typical market of Huancaro to buy fruits, vegetables, meat and all you need to prepare your own meals, if you desire. A lovely white Spanish Church (Private college San Juan) at the corner of the street, many taxis to drive you (5mn) to the historic center for only 3 soles (less than 3 dollars).
