About the property

Lovely Home In Mystical Urubamba

Our house is the perfect city rush escape. A great place to surround yourself with nature and adventure and of course experience Machu Picchu without any hassle.

Mornings are warm, quiet, sunny and beautiful, we love having breakfast out on the deck breathing the most clean fresh air.

Afternoons laying on the hammock after a fun busy day, watching the mountains and the sun set, is just priceless.

Nights are full of bright and often shooting stars. Barbecuing or sitting by the fire is very relaxing.

The house located 50 mins away from Cusco. Only 20 mins from Ollantaytambo's main train station to Machu Picchu.

Urubamba is a small town also known as Sacred Valley of the Incas. It is full of mysticism, history, ruins, adventure sports (water rafting, zip lining, extreme downhill, etc.) and great gastronomy. It is also home to many foreigners who visited the Valley and never left.

This mystical paradise is also well known for its Ayahuasca retreats, coca leaf readings and shamanism, locals have a very deep respect for pacha mama (mother earth) and often thank her for all her blessings through offering ceremonies which are also available to visitors upon request.

One of the many good things about Urubamba is that although it is a rural location, you can always enjoy the benefits of the several 5 star hotels in the area such as Spa's and high end restaurants.

There are many activities to enjoy and close by places to visit such as Pisaq, Maras y Moray, Ollantaytambo, Aguas Calientes, Salineras, Cusco, etc.

But if you like the less traditional touristy spots, you can always walk the inca trail to Machu Picchu, visit the Hot Springs of Lares, visit trout farms, lakes, book a night with Sky Lodge, in one of their mountain hanging clear capsules also known as the Condor's nest, etc.

The possibilities are endless.

The best time to travel to Peru and visit Machu Picchu would be between May and October, rainy season is from December until March.

We hope you find our humble town as interesting and entertaining as we do and decide to visit soon!

You can also find more information about the house and Peru on our Facebook page by searching Sonqowasi.

Safe travels to all!

I had such an amazing time. I was searching for tranquility and found it!!! I enjoyed my walks in the garden. I had easy access to the nearby market. Four days was not enough to enjoy such a majestic place. I will have to return next year and stayed for at least a week. Thanks Xaviera for your assistance and for making my stay one to be remembered.

Ii was very impressed with the house we stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at 10 o'clock at night and had no idea where we at. But once arriving on the grounds we noticed how well the grounds were kept.

Very clean!!! We really enjoyed the house and all of the features. The house is very comfortable. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful.

I will recommend this house to my friends. It was close to everything.

Also we only stayed for 3 days not 4 days. Will be able to get credit for the 1 day?

Wonderful experience - treat yourself!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay - it's between Cusco and Machu Picchu Pueblo, so you get the peace of the Sacred Valley and can disconnect completely.

We were there 5 nights and could have easily stayed longer.

The house is exactly as shown in the photos, and the daily cleaning service is excellent!

One recommendation, get groceries when you land in Cusco. There are small shops for the essentials, but a proper grocery you won't find.

Do treat yourself and enjoy this place during your stay in the area.
