This apartment is a terrific option for your stay in Cusco. The apartment is nestled in the Mateo Pumacahua neighborhood. Fruit cart vendors travel through the neighborhood each morning. If you are adventurous enough to try some of the local fruit, I recommend the pacay. The fuzzy white fruit around the large seed pods is edible. There are several very close neighborhood storefronts where you can buy bottled water, juice and other snacks. The local craft market is on the way to the main plaza of Cusco (both are within walking distance). The main bank is also along the way where you can exchange money. We recommend also going to the San Blas Church and wonder around the small plaza there as well. A lot of good deals on crafts can be found. Carvings in the church’s famous pulpit include the pacay fruit. One of the major alpaca stores is located around the corner from the apartment.
The apartment includes all the necessary items you would ever need. It is clean, functional and roomy. It was a perfect size for 4 adults. There is one main bathroom and a second half bath. There is plenty of storage for your things in each bedroom. Large windows in the living room provide great views everyday and give you a sense of actual Cusco life. Breakfast is included, and you will get to experience some of the local cooking practices and food choices. The bread and oatmeal were my favorite. The internet worked really well. The owners were very receptive to any questions we had. They are very easy to work with and friendly. They are very knowledgeable about Cusco and other areas in Peru. All the tours they recommended were very good.
