“Love Second Home Cusco & the entire staff!!! Gr8 place, gr8 location!”
Reviewed 18 April 2011

My husband and I stayed here in the upstairs room for 2 notes and loves it. Incredibly spacious rooms (living room, bdr, bathroom) Clean with good linens. Location in San Blas is gr8, though a little bit of huffing & puffing may occur walking up here.

The best part of 2nd home Cusco is the staff. Carlos, Victor, and Raul were all so amiable and accomodating. We had a wonderful
stay here, and Raul even woke up early to make us breakfast when we had to leave for our trek at 4am! U really can't beat that type of service.
We loved this place so much that when our trek was cut short due to my husband's illness, we came back here for another 2 nites. Only thing was the rooms were all full exept for the small bottom floor room which felt very cramped. If u can get the larger upstairs room, I'd highly recommend it. We're staying at the libertador now and wish we were back at Carlos's place.

We stayed here for one night as a treat and If we could have afforded it we would of chose to stay here for our whole stay in Cuzco. It is a beautiful even luxurious place. The rooms are clean and well furnished. The owner was very friendly and helped us get a taxi the next morning to the bus station. He evengot someone to prepare us breakfast verrrry early. If you can afford it this is definately one of the best places to stay in Cuzco.

Too many good things to say about this place. The location is a short walk from everything good in cusco. i came in to a beautiful courtyeard style property with only 4 rooms, though it really felt like i was the only guest the whole time. in addition, the room was massive and well designed, with both bedroom and a large private living room attached with a couch.

The staff were excellent, speaking perfect english, and arranging everything for me from transport to laundry and providing a huge breakfast along with good conversation. Polite, professional and endlessly helpful. wish i had more time there, for the price its a great experience.

We were picked up from the airport by Carlos the owner, he was a pleasure to be with and immediately made us feel welcome. It's a lovely little B&B within easy walking distance of the centre.

We loved this place and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

If you are travelling to Lima from here then we can also recommend 'Second Home Peru'. This is run by Carlos' sister and is spectacular.

Second Home Cusco was a very intimate and cozy bed and breakfast. From the moment we were picked up at the airport by Carlos (the owner) and the driver, we immediately felt welcomed. It also helped that the airport pick up and drop off were complimentary. Carlos was a great host and was very helpful in planning out our short stay in Cusco. The breakfast was cooked for us each day with homemade breads. It was simple yet very good. There are only 4 rooms at this B&B making it very intimate and inviting. The room we had was very spacious and comfortable. The location is also good. It's not in the center, but just a short walking distance. It is very hilly, but there are several small shops to stop at along the way. I would definitely recommend this place and for the price, it is well worth it.

We stayed with Carlos for 8 nights and we could not have asked for anything better. We were so looked after by Carlos and his staff and the friendly atmosphere, coupled with spacious rooms which really capture the feel of Cusco. My husband got altitude sickness and was very sick and Carlos arranged for the doctor to come and take us to the hospital and then accommodated us for the days we were meant to be doing the Inca Trail. His driver picked us up and dropped us at the airport for no extra charge and anything we needed was organised and booked for us without any trouble. It was truly one of the best travel experiences we have had and we have very fond memories of breakfast times at Carlos’. Highly, highly recommended!!!
