About Catherine MacIntyre Rosenberg

I purchased this home in 1996 when I fell in love with the valley. I love my time in the gardens or going to the market to get fresh fruits and other delicious foods. I have met so many wonderful people who are life friends and have allowed me to make me always feel at home in their magnificent courntry. It is an amazing experience. Mi casa es su casa.

Why Catherine MacIntyre Rosenberg chose Urubamba

I loved the land and the people and wanted a place of where I could go back in time and find true peace and serenity.

What makes this House unique

                                                                  Carol K.

My family recently spent several days exploring the beautiful Valley and surrounding sites and were so happy to come home to this lovely spot and delicious home-cooked food by Zarela at the end of every day. Cathy, the owner, was so helpful in recommending things to do and alleviating my worries about keeping my 4 teenagers fed and entertained! She also connected us to a wonderful guide and driver, Edwin, who made us feel very comfortable and showed us many of the highlights and out-of-the way places we never would have discovered on our own. We had an amazing trip that included Macchu Piccu, horseback riding, visiting an animal sanctuary, and eating cuy like a local. We had a wonderful and unforgettable visit - so grateful to Cathy, Edwin, and Zarela!

                                                                  perfect home for exploring Sacred Valley

                                                                  Deborah W.

                                                                  We landed in Cusco and headed straight to the house, perfect for acclimating to the altitude. The house was roomy and comfortable and the gardens and mountain views were gorgeous. Cathy arranged a driver, Isaias, who picked us up at the airport and was available for us during our entire stay for very reasonable fee. He took us to explore Pisac, Ollyantaytambo, to and from train station when we went to Machu Picchu, through Moray, stopping for pictures, whatever we wanted to do, just a great guide! Zarela made us breakfast each day and a couple dinners upon request as well. Again, very reasonable fee and she did the shopping and preparation. She is a sweet lady and wonderful cook. We took some DVDs to watch in the evenings, but ended up reading by the fireplace instead. So cozy!

                                                                  I highly recommend Cathy's house. She was quick to answer questions, and make sure we were all set.

                                                                  Thank you, Cathy. We loved it!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  It was wonderful for all of us to be given the opportunity to help with your journey to The Sacred Valley.

                                                                  The fire in the fireplace is a lovely way to relax after touring and share the events of the day.

                                                                  You were open to suggestions which is a delight for us. Zarela loves cooking a special meal and showing off her chef apron and hat! Fun times.

                                                                  Thank you so much for staying in my casa.

                                                                  The house is beautiful, fully equipped, and perfectly situated to explore all the sights.

                                                                  KristineUnited States

                                                                  We stayed for a week with my self, my husband and two children aged 8 and 10. The house was perfect! We spent our evenings unwinding by the fireplace and mornings reading in bed before heading out to explore the area.

                                                                  The beds are great and beding is wonderfully warm and comfortable. Zarela lives in a house on the property and was helpful with our needs. She is even willing to prepare home cooked meals for a very reasonable price. It was wonderful to come home to dinner prepared after spending the day hiking.

                                                                  Cathy connected us to Isais who is a local guide. Again for a reasonable price he was willing to take us throughout the area and really help us absorb the culture. He was a wonderful guide and translator. He is also just a really great person that we enjoyed getting to know.

                                                                  Cathy was wonderfully responsive and helpful whenever we needed something. I would highly recommend this gem!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  From the first email I received, I could tell you were an exceptional family. I loved our interactions and planning everything from tours to meals was delightful.

                                                                  We thank you for your patience, your kindness and warmth to all of us.

                                                                  Great Private Getaway

                                                                  Kirk W.

                                                                  Great property nestled away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Great location offering privacy and not far from local shopping etc. Conveniently located close to main city to catch train to Machu Picchu. House Keeper was great, she made a few meals for my family and I, and they were great. Overall, my family and I LOVED the house. I would highly recommend a stay at this lovely property. We had a guide that was recommended by the owner of the property. Isaas was a great resource for information on the area. He was well versed in the various customs and knew the hot spots to take us. His laid back attitude was great, giving us time to see the sights, but also to shop and enjoy some of the great food the area had to offer. He made the experience memorable and I will never forget it.

                                                                  Excellent Vacation Home to live like a local

There are 3 wonderful and well kept bedrooms, a large living room and 2 full baths. The kitchen is very large and well stocked with appliances to enable a grand entertainment. The property has beautiful fruit and rose trees and excellent views of the mountains.Cathy the owner is very very helpful and has a lot of local contacts to facilitate a perfect stay. She had all tips and went over and beyond in providing information on best places to stay and eat not just in Sacred Valley but also in Lima. Isias our tour guide that works with Cathy is also very knowledgeable and enabled us to quickly revise our schedule when there was a strike. He personally came to Peru Rail to help change our reservations and arranged for a cab to take us to another station and also stored our luggage in his car during our trip to Machu Picchu. Isias also took us to a local brewery to taste the chicha. Cathy also recommended our driver in Lima ( Eduardo). At the site is also a caretaker, Zarela, who can prepare delicious home cooked meals. Her children are adorable. We truly felt like locals completely take care of with all the personal touches. We wish we could go back again. We have extremely fond memories of our stay and would love to stay again
