Quiet, Secluded and Serene

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice. It had a nice garden and view of the mountains. It is situated in Urubamba, which is 20 minutes by taxi to Ollanta (train station and archaeological ruins). We did not have that much time in the area, but if you get a chance - walk deep into the town. It is a 10 minute walk to the main street. Our only issue - going in winter, the temperature went to 40 degrees. The house has a fireplace but no heat. John and Dew, who were great, provided firewood - but it would not catch fire. So we had to wrap up in some blankets. One restaurant recommended by John and Dew - TAWA in Yucay - 5 min drive from house. Just awesome food, although a bit pricey.

Extremely nice house and hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay in Urubamba at this very comfortable house. Juan and Dew were quite accommodating and helpful as hosts. The only slight drawback was that while the house location is an easy walk to town, Urubamba a bit more isolated than we expected in terms of seeing some of the sites in the area. It's an excellent set-up for families with a car. We did not have a car, so we instead relied on an extremely nice taxi driver named Roy. We also absolutely loved a small but totally delicious and accommodating restaurant just across the street: Mar & Cielo.

Comfortable house close to everything in town

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the home for one week. The fire place was nice as it did warm us up in the evenings. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows too. The care takers on site were very friendly. I liked the open concept of the home and the well stocked kitchen. All in all we were happy with the stay. The only reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is the extra costs that were added to the stay. As said in a past review we were charged for extra wood ( fair price but still charged). Then we were charged for the drinking water that was in the home ( way over charged). Then we were told the washer didn't work so we gave our close to the caretaker to wash ( as instructed) and she proceeded to take the clothes and put them in the washer on site ( the washer we were told didn't work). The charge for the clothes was reasonable it was just the fact we were told the washer didn't work and we stay in homes to avoid others doing the things we can do. We requested cleaning only once during the stay but found the meaning lady in our home several times when we cane back from an excursion ( not a bad thing but I like my privacy). The only other thing was there was a table put in the dining room full of over priced souvenirs for sale ( bracelets, leg warmers, scarves, key chains, gloves) all touristy over priced. As I said in the beginning the house is fine and comfortable and I would recommend it just be cautious of the extras!

Right in the Heart of the Sacred Valley

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cozy house with everything we needed to begin our exploration of the Sacred Valley. It is located next to a historic monastery with an outstanding restaurant. The home is in a secure, gated area with very helpful staff on-site; it is also just a 10-12" walk to downtown shops and restaurants. Felt very safe walking even after dark, though inexpensive 'moto-taxis' are readily available for quick transportation. The owners were very friendly and helpful in arranging everything from tours, taxis and restaurant recommendations. They arranged for airport pick-up for us in Cusco and we spent the next 4 days exploring with day trips from our rental in this central location - right in the heart of the Valley. Fabulous find, would highly recommend!

Bright, expansive home with great views

  • 4 of 5

Dew and Juan were incredible. Extremely responsive and able to help coordinate transportation whenever needed to the ruins or for a pizza run. Their attentiveness really made our stay special. This home is secluded away in a private gated community with a beautiful fenced in back yard that had a terrific variety of flowers blooming while we were there. While laundry facilities on property were not available to us - a laundry service was available to do your laundry at a very affordable rate. The home is extremely bright during the day yet be prepared for the cooler temperatures at night (high elevation). We found it necessary to have a fire each night in the fireplace with the tile floors and cooler evenings which requires the purchase of additional wood. One aspect of our stay which I will not soon forget was the view of the flowering bushes in the backyard and mountains behind them from the open window in the shower!

In summary, the home presents in person just like it does in the photo's. There is a nice restaurant right next door and in town you must visit Paca Paca's! Check out the restaurant at the five star resort as well if you feel like splurging one of the nights you are in town.

Accommodations large enough to sleep a small army, and EXTREMELY helpful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Recently, my girlfriend and I stayed at John and Dew's Valley and Life Cottages. This gated community was wonderful, and their hospitality was above and beyond anything we expected. The cottage we stayed in was lovely, and the location in Urubamba provided us with great access to many of the marvelous nearby wonders, including Machu Picchu. The house could've slept a small army, but the two of us were exceeding comfortable. The community manager went out of her way numerous times to accommodate us, even to the extent of putting a fire on for us in the fireplace after we had a long day at Machu Picchu. Everyone at Valley and Life Cottages made our trip amazing, especially since our Spanish was limited to "hello, goodbye, and Wednesday". We couldn't have asked for more perfect hosts and would definitely recommend their cottages to anyone looking to stay in the Sacred Valley!
