Our stay here surpassed all our expectations. Carlos, Elizabeth and Julia went out of their way to make us comfortable and to assist us with everything to make our time in Cusco unforgettable. Nos quedamos encantados con la hospitalidad de nuestros nuevos amigos peruanos. Mil gracias
Elisabeth and Carlos made us feel really at home! We spend christmas and newyears together. Thanks to them we didn't feel homesick.
Mi tiempo con Elizabeth y Carlos en Cusco fue fantastico! No puedes preguntar para mejor hospitalidad porque ellos son cariñosos, interesantes, y adventurosos! Exploramos la ciudad junto, celebramos el Corpus Cristi, visitamos familia, hablamos sobre la vida, practicamos yoga, comemos como unos reyes, y reímos como niños! Ellos pueden acomodar tus necesidades y deseos. Yo recomiendo esta homestay 100%!
My time with Elizabeth and Carlos was fantastic! You are not able to ask for better hospitality because they are caring, interesting and adventurous! We explored the city together, celebrated Corpus Christi, visited family, talked about life, practice yoga, ate like kings, and laughed like children! They are able to accommodate your needs and desires. I recommend this home stay 100%!
Very nice family. They served us authentic breakfast and late-night dinners, and were very open and fun to talk to. They also helped us arrange visits to some of the ruins in the area. Highly recommended.
This was my first homestay experience (also the first time and Peru!) and I could not have wished for a better experience. Elizabeth and Carlos are a very friendly couple, who quickly made me feel like a member of the family. They have a genuine interest in getting to know their guests, without being intrusive or imposing just because you are staying in their home. If you want to chat, they will gladly chat, if you want to rest and relax, they will let you do that too. They went out of their way to make sure I felt safe, knew where to go, and were happy to suggest things to do. I found that with Elizabeth and Carlos, you get out as much as you put in - I will remember fondly the evenings we spent exchanging views about life in England, Portugal and in Peru! I found the bedroom accommodation to be perfect for the price and in relation to what you would normally pay in Cusco: you have a good sized double bedroom and window overlooking a local youth football playing field (plenty of natural light without being overlooked), more than enough storage space, internet access and your own bathroom just outside the bedroom. There is also cable TV although I hardly ever used it. The room receives morning and afternoon sunlight and despite the lack of central heating I never got cold at night. Elizabeth was happy to provide additional blankets but I never needed them. The location itself is very quiet and although you are 2.5km from Plaza de Armas, it was very easy to find a taxi for 4 to 5 soles to get you into the centre. If you are looking to get to know more about the culture of Peru from a local family (and perhaps even make a couple of new friends for life!) whilst staying in good quality accommodation, I would strongly recommend staying with Elizabeth and Carlos!
I would definitely recommend staying with Elizabeth and Carlos. Elizabeth is so warm and friendly. She is a excellent host and ambassador to Cusco. As a woman traveling in Peru alone, it was great to have Elizabeth's guidance and advice. She made me feel welcome and comfortable from the the moment she picked me up from the airport to 4am in the morning when my trekking company picked me up three days later. Thanks to her and Carlos, Cusco will always have a place in my heart.
Elizabeth and Carlos were gracious and kind hosts. Elizabeth arranged a taxi to pick us up from the Cuzco airport immediately after we landed, giving us one less thing to worry about after a full day of travel. They then provided us with a gigantic lunch and reserved a spot for us on a tour of the Sacred Valley for the following day. This experience on the first day was representative of their hospitality throughout: always thinking ahead about what we might need or what would improve our trip, whether it was (large amounts of) authentic Peruvian cuisine, a good WiFi connection in their lovely apartment, or even an informational visit to the local hospital where Carlos works. We would not hesitate to homestay with Elizabeth and Carlos again -- the experience was both more comforting and enriching than staying in a hostel would have been.
I definitely recommend you staying here. Because the host is sincere like show me around the city centre, inviting me to a local restaurant. The room is really clean, hot shower equipped, safe, the breakfast is yummy. Wifi is fast and active whole the house, which helped me a lot. The total merit far exceeds the price. I want to stay here again when I'll be back in Cusco.
Muy buena la estancia.
Elizabeth es muy buena anfitriona, muy preocupada de sus huespedes.
Su hospedaje esta practico y comodo.
Sinceramente Arnold de nacionalidad holandesa y yo peruana nos sentimos muy a gusto.
Espero pronto repetir la experiencia.
Agradezco a Homestay tambien por la confianza que brinda a los que queremos un hospedaje agradable.
Elizabeth and Carlos were such amazing hosts during our stay. It was our first day in Peru and we couldn't have felt more welcomed. Her apartment is clean, cozy, spacious, and sunny. Elizabeth even took the time to show us some sights and give us tips on things to do in Cusco. Her place is about a 5 minute- 3 soles cab ride to the plaza and there are a bunch of sights and great restaurants within walking distance to the apartment. I highly recommend this lovely host. Thank you again Elizabeth and Carlos!
