Perfect for our one month stay. Close enough to Cusco to easily catch a taxi or bus to see all the tourist sites, but also far enough away to enjoy the rural peaceful setting of Cusco. Conveniently located also on the Sacred Valley side of Cusco. The apartment has great Wi-Fi and the facilities were very clean. The owners are very accommodating and give such great local advice.
We spent two weeks at Chaskana Guest House and it was great. Having the house just to yourself gives you privacy and flexibility. Kitchen has all you need. Water is hot. Nights can be cold but the hosts give you warm blankets and there is a heater on demande. Yom and Rachel are so kind, welcoming and helpful. They know everything there is to know about the area. The house is situated 20min by car to the center of Cusco. You can also catch a bus. Perfect if you want to stay longer than the usual tourist stay, and if you want to experience life as a local. We recommend !!
I have always wanted to call this plance The Ranch.
It is everything that is advertised.
The house is right on the edge of the Sea of Humanity that Cusco is. I loved that i could be in the hills of serenity within a five minute walk.
Yom is a great person and is very knowledgable about his country. Listen to him and he will get you where you want to go.
The house itself is perfect. The house has many ammenities that i was used to which made it a perfect way for me to blend into the society here.
It is clear that I was in control of how much I interacted with Yom and his family.
I recommend this to adventurers who like the choice of being alone but who enjoy being accessible to the action.
Yom and Rachel very friendly and helpful. We received some complimentary supplies upon arrival. Yom was very helpful guide during our trip to Machu Picchu. We are very satisfied with our stay there. Big house, fridge, kitchen, Wi-Fi and all the necessary amenities for a comfortable and relax time, and whenever we need something they were always available.
I had a wonderful time staying at Chaskana Guesthouse for a month. The place is atmospheric and spacious and it is a great, authentic place to relax and explore the local life of Cusco. The landscapes are amazing as you can see in the photos: the mountains can be seen from any window. The center is only a 15-20 minute taxi ride from the house which I found convenient. Rachel and Yom are really kind, helpful people that know a lot about the culture of Cusco and Peru in general. Yom is also a professional tour guide with whom I did a trip to the Rainbow Mountains which was one of the best experiences I have had travelling! His prices are very reasonable and everything was provided: food, knowledge about the areas, etc (all in good english). All in all, I warmly recommend this guesthouse to anybody visiting Cusco! :)
