About Catherine MacIntyre Rosenberg
I purchased this home in 1996 when I fell in love with the valley. I love my time in the gardens or going to the market to get fresh fruits and other delicious foods. I have met so many wonderful people who are life friends and have allowed me to make me always feel at home in their magnificent courntry. It is an amazing experience. Mi casa es su casa.

Why Catherine MacIntyre Rosenberg chose Urubamba
I loved the land and the people and wanted a place of where I could go back in time and find true peace and serenity.
What makes this House unique
I loved to write and have written books and a meditation CD while at my home. Great thoughts come to me as I spend time in this powerful area of the world.

Quiet and peaceful, perfect location!
We loved the quiet and peacefulness of this home; plenty of space to relax indoors and outside in the beautiful garden. The location is very convenient to walking to town for supplies or restaurants or even walking to the train station for our trip to Mach Pichu.
Breakfast and evening meals prepared by Zarela were great to start and end our days of exploring the wonders of the Sacred Valley. The best part of our trip was spending time with Isaias (our guide recommended by Cathy) experiencing the beauty of the mountains and valley; words can not express the beauty you will find here. We loved waking up to beautiful mountain scenery every morning. and touring and hiking the lovely Valley. Perfection! We would love to visit again and stay right here!
Cathy was also very helpful and accommodating when our plans went astray and we needed to check in a day early-her response to a stressed traveler was "nothing is impossible"-just what we needed to hear!
The location is excellent, i.e. in the middle of all the major attractions and relatively lower altitude compared to other area. House is huge and quiet and is within walking distance to the store. The market is very interesting to visit. Catherine , the owner, was very helpful to connect us with a local guide , Edwin. Edwin has a nice van and he looked after all our needs the whole time (5 days) including airport pick up and drop off; Private day trips to the major attractions on 2 days; pick up and drop off to the train station on the day to Machu Picchu; helping us to buy machu Picchu admission and bus ticket; helping us to find currency exchange and shop for food. Edwin was very attentive to our need and interest and we were able to see the best scenery of Cusco area. The onsite care-taker, Zarella was able to get us some basic food items prior our arrival which was very helpful. She also cooked two lovely meals for us. The only thing I want to suggest is to improve the lighting inside the house.
Great, Great, GREAT Place! The only place to stay in the Sacred Valley!
Cathy's place is the best! She was so helpful in providing helpful hints for travel and touring in Peru, from getting thru the airport, to what to see and what to miss if you are on a tight schedule. The property is much larger than what is shown in the pictures. Beds were comfy and plenty warm. A little chilly in the mornings, but nothing that the space heaters couldn't take care of.
We also hired Isaias as a driver and tour guide for 3 of our 4 days here. He picked us up at the airport, helped us do some shopping in Cusco, before heading down to Urubamba and got us all settled. He dropped us off and picked us up at the train to Machu Pichuu our first day, and was our tour guide for the two days after that. Very knowledgable in the ancient history of the Incas and native Indians.
Property also has an on site manager, Zarella, who will also shop & provide meals for you on request. Highly recommend at least one or two meals. We had her cook her Loma Saltonado! Superb!
Even though we will likely not get back to Peru, we'd stay here again in a heart beat!
Thanks Cathy for sharing your lovely vacation home with us.

I was so relieved when you arrived at the house. When your flight was cancelled i knew it can throw things off but it all worked out. Isaías is amazing and I knew you were in good hands.
The house is fun and Zarela cooking typical Andean dishes adds to the Sacred Valley experience.
Thank you for staying with us. Cathy, Zarela and Isaías
Wonderful property and people!
I highly recommend this comfortable and relaxing home for a visit to the Sacred Valley! My family recently spent several days exploring the beautiful Valley and surrounding sites and were so happy to come home to this lovely spot and delicious home-cooked food by Zarela at the end of every day. Cathy, the owner, was so helpful in recommending things to do and alleviating my worries about keeping my 4 teenagers fed and entertained! She also connected us to a wonderful guide and driver, Edwin, who made us feel very comfortable and showed us many of the highlights and out-of-the way places we never would have discovered on our own. We had an amazing trip that included Macchu Piccu, horseback riding, visiting an animal sanctuary, and eating cuy like a local. We had a wonderful and unforgettable visit - so grateful to Cathy, Edwin, and Zarela!
It was fun for Edwin and I to help with your amazing trip to Peru. Zarela loves to cook and had fun preparing meals for your lovely family.
We thank you for letting us help with your magical time in the Sacred Valley
Cathy, Edwin, Zarela and family
perfect home for exploring Sacred Valley
We landed in Cusco and headed straight to the house, perfect for acclimating to the altitude. The house was roomy and comfortable and the gardens and mountain views were gorgeous. Cathy arranged a driver, Isaias, who picked us up at the airport and was available for us during our entire stay for very reasonable fee. He took us to explore Pisac, Ollyantaytambo, to and from train station when we went to Machu Picchu, through Moray, stopping for pictures, whatever we wanted to do, just a great guide! Zarela made us breakfast each day and a couple dinners upon request as well. Again, very reasonable fee and she did the shopping and preparation. She is a sweet lady and wonderful cook. We took some DVDs to watch in the evenings, but ended up reading by the fireplace instead. So cozy!
I highly recommend Cathy's house. She was quick to answer questions, and make sure we were all set.
Thank you, Cathy. We loved it!
It was wonderful for all of us to be given the opportunity to help with your journey to The Sacred Valley.
The fire in the fireplace is a lovely way to relax after touring and share the events of the day.
You were open to suggestions which is a delight for us. Zarela loves cooking a special meal and showing off her chef apron and hat! Fun times.
Thank you so much for staying in my casa.
Located in the heart of the Sacred Valley with beautiful views and access to all the wonders of the nearby area including Machu Picchu. Zip lining available. Tour guide available upon request, Must see the sanctuary outside of Pisac and be in an area with condors. Perfect area for many amazing sites
