“Look no further. It certainly feels like home”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

As I say in the title. Look no further, this is your second home in Cusco.

Carlos, the host, is the dictionary definition of a good host: He just makes sure you feel at home, so just arrive and relax, he's got you covered.

Breakfast is perfect. And Carlos will prepare hot food on your request. Superb!

Rooms are comfortable, if quirky (because of the old house adaptation) but they feel so special: you want to spend time in your room, let's put it like that.

Location is perfect, just 5 minutes walk to the city centre. And the main good thing about the location: it is QUIET.

Wifi works perfectly.

Transfer to and from train station or airport is included in the fee.

Bottomline: look no further and just stay here, for 2 days or 2 weeks, it's simply perfect.

Room Tip: Any room is great.

We stayed at My Second Home in Cusco for 3 nights in April 2013. The suite we had was great. Don't expect luxury but it's clean, roomy and convenient to central Cusco. The real story is the owner. You could not find a more gracious and helpful host than Carlos. From the moment we arrived he looked after us. He advised us on how to avoid altitude sickness then reviewed our planned itinerary and suggested a tour of the sacred valley and organized it for us with Eduardo, the same gentleman that picked us up at the airport. This was the best $120 we spent for a full day of touring. Eduardo speaks little English and we speak no Spanish but it didn't matter - somehow we communicated and had a memorable day. Carlos provided great breakfasts every morning, irrespective of the time we had to leave. Carlos is a true gentleman and a professional innkeeper. We recommend My Second Home to anyone and itr really is, as its name suggests, a home away from home. If you go to Peru, you have to visit Machu Picchu, truly a world class experience and when you are in Cusco stay with Carlos at his inn - you won't regret it.

Room Tip: There arew only 3 suites and I don't think you'll go wrong with any of them.

Loved the pickup at the airport, the breakfast in the morning and the help in planning our vacation. If I ever go back to Cusco, this is where I want to stay. Carlos assisted us in getting a private taxi to take us around cusco and visit the sites as well as made super delicious breakfasts each morning of our stay. Loved it! Carlos absolutely knows what a traveler wants in a place abroad!

My second visit to Cusco and to the B&B. This time I traveled with my spouse on vacation. I loved this place the first time and was able to spend 3 relaxing days in Cusco. As expected Carlos was wonderful and our friendship was established once more. We arrived at 9:30 am and Carlos had our taxi waiting and our breakfast and room available immediately. It was like coming home again and we found ourselves in a comforting environment that allowed us rest and easy access to Cusco. Highly recommended! Enjoy the wonderful original Peruvian artist Delfine's art collection Carlos has around the building.

Room Tip: There are only 3, but my favorite is the one to the left as you enter.

Could not have been happier with our stay at Second Home in Cusco. Carlos was a helpful host, and spoke English. The rooms are very nice and comfortable, although you have to be careful hitting your head in spots if you are a tall person (like over six foot). Great location in the heart of Cusco, with a wonderful selection of eating establishments and places to visit. This guest house is highly recommended. There are a block of steps you will need to climb to get to the guest house - we did not mind, but some people might mind this fact.

Room Tip: Cusco is a pricey town with above average prices for accommodations. That being said, this property...

My family stayed at Second Home Cusco for three nights in March 2013 and couldn't have been happier. The location was perfect, the rooms were spacious, clean & comfortable and the service was top notch. Carlos was friendly and accommodating - the perfect host. This was the perfect choice for our family in Cusco.

We stayed at second home at the start and end of our trip to Peru. Located in the San Blas area of Cusco so everything is very close and within walking distance. Beautiful apartment-like rooms, very clean and breakfasts were excellent. Carlos was very helpful in arranging anything that was needed. Highly recommended!
