“At Ruth's complex you'll find humble accommodations filled with family and friends that are super sweet and friendly. Not only does she and her parents live there, but so do the llamas, some dogs, kittens (which will be adopted by the time you arrive), and guinea pigs. So hopefully you're an animal lover like I am 😁 They have a demonstration area where they'll explain the process of getting the llama and sheep ready for weaving and knitting their gorgeous products. Now you can buy cheaper in a few markets in Cusco;however, if you join them in the weaving process on the lawn in the sun with the animals and some ice cream... you'll find so much more value in their textiles then you will in a random Cusco market. Ruth is doing well in her English but she still is working things out... she's doing great for as long as she's been learning. Her sister and her boyfriend are really good. She'll offer morning soup complimentary with the stay. and for additional cost she will fix lunch and dinner. I ate dinner with her and sometimes she'll let you help by peeling potatoes or washing the dishes. but of course you don't have to. I really enjoyed my stay here! a few things to maybe be aware of that didn't bother me but may for others would be... dogs are guard dogs at night so they bark at those bad guys 😅😉... there wasn't toilet paper in the bathroom the first night but just ask... the shower isn't really warm let alone hot (ever heard of Win Hoff... well cold showers are great for you 😆) enjoy your stay with Ruth and her family!”

“The house is well located, away from chaos and inside an oasis with a wonderful view. It is spacious, clean and everything you need for your stay. We had a few rainy days so we had to spend a lot of time inside the house and it was good, we were comfortable. There is a fireplace to light and next to a cup of chocolate is a nice plan for the night. The shower water is not quite hot in the morning, but in the afternoon / nap it improves. Only one situation we did not like: we are people who, due to our diet, cook a lot and eat inside the house usually, so kitchen utensils are essential in our stay. The knives were not sharp and we couldn't even cut a lemon in the middle. When I asked the host if we could solve that in any way, his answer was that we should go sharpen them to the city. Anyway, Moises was very attentive in our arrival process and offered to pick us up at some point in the city, as well as leave us at the terminal when we were leaving. It also allowed us to use the washing machine.”

“I have stayed at a lot of AirBnB’s... And this is among my very favorites. The shower is extraordinary, the bed was so comfortable, and the landscape is stunning. Marlis and her family even made us a fabulous dinner for a little extra cost! She also helped coordinate taxi drivers to and from Cusco for us. Staying here is most definitely worth going out of your way for—it is a beautiful place!!”
