About the property

4 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom, 12 Sleeps

Step into your own fairy-tale home in the middle of the Andes. Welcome to our house. "Tayta" is a 300m2 , 4-bedroom/5-bathroom villa built with traditional style and luxury materials. Daily breakfast & cleaning, Wifi included!

Tayta is the twin villa of Kampu. Tayta is located inside a luxury complex, a 1 acre property full of flower gardens. Enjoy the comfort of an exclusive hotel and the independence and freedom of your own house.

We will help you organize transportation to and from the airport as well as tours to the main sites in the Sacred Valley. We can also arrange full-day Cusco tours, transporation to Puno and/or Colca Valley (more information below).

Located at only a 5 minutes by car (1 mile) from a train station with direct link to Machu Picchu, Tayta is the ideal starting point to explore the Sacred Inca Valley and its many archeological treasures such as Pisac and Ollantaytambo. Besides, the lower altitude than Cusco (2850 m.a.s.l. – 9350 f.a.s.l.), allows for a much better altitude adaptation.

Share with your family the wonderful experience of watching the night sky without any light contamination. You will be able to contemplate constellations, planets, and shooting stars quite frequently.

Tayta has more than 300m2 and it’s been built in a traditional style which harmonizes perfectly with the surrounding landscape. Extra high ceilings and wide windows will give you extraordinary views and brightness throughout the house. There are wood and stone designer touches all around the primary living areas, a traditional fireplace, and a gourmet kitchen.

This inviting home also has a wooden floor lounge/gameroom/library area and a separate glass-enclosed spa room which includes a 3 person hydrotherapy tub and a rainfall shower. Enjoy a unique moment in a relaxing bubble bath while you look at our spectacular mountain and forest views.

There are 4 bedrooms:

*Room I (master suite): two beds (can be joined to make a double bed), ensuite bathroom, balcony with wonderful views.

*Room II: up to three beds. Ensuite bathroom.

*Room III: up to three beds. Ensuite bathroom.

*Room IV: one double bed and one double sofa bed, private external bathroom.

All bedrooms have heaters, luxury linen and towels (100% Peruvian cotton, down comforters).

*Fully equipped kitchen (stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator)

*We have children playing balls, table games, Sapo (Peruvian coin toss game) and a foosball table.

Our service personnel will make sure your bedrooms and common areas are cleaned daily. They will also light the fireplace, and/or prepare the spa at your demand. It is all included!!

In addition, we have a 24h surveillance service that will ensure your peace of mind during your stay.

Enjoy the experience of our most traditional dish, the Pachamanca (from Quechua pacha "earth", manka "pot") made with 100% local organic produce (6 persons min.).

Upon your arrival we will greet you with the traditional coca leaf tea, and other herbal teas, comforting and good for adapting to the altitude. We will also help you with your luggage so you can start enjoying your vacations right from the start. There's even emergency oxygen available in the rare event of altitude sickness symptoms.

Villa Tayta is located 10-15 min walking distance to the center of Urubamba, the capital of the Sacred Inca Valley.

We work with a local tourist transport service company in Urubamba that offers a range of vehicles depending on your needs (Sedan, Van, Mini Bus). All cars are insured, licensed to carry tourists and all drivers have professional licenses (beware of informal companies).

Exactly what we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our first week in Peru adventuring and trekking. Our second week was all about relaxing in style, but we wanted something more comfortable than a hotel. Our Kantuwasi stay was outstanding.

The house was beautiful, well-appointed, and more than comfortable. Specifically, we got great sleep thanks to good beds, an often missed mark on the road. The caretakers were super friendly and helpful, and we were delighted by the local dining options. Yes, it was a short walk down a dirt road and then through a local neighborhood to get to town, but totally worth it.

I would gladly visit Urubamba again, and would definitely stay here!

Lovely and comfortable house in the Sacred Valley

  • 4 of 5

My family of 7 recently stayed at this lovely property for 3 nights. We found the house to have all of the comforts we could have desired. The staff were wonderful - greeting us whenever we returned, lighting roaring fires for us every night, and preparing a wonderful breakfast with delicious eggs, juice smoothies, and bread every morning. The beds were comfortable, the towels replaced daily, and we so enjoyed the American TV and living room. We so appreciated Raul going out to pick us up some wine and takeout chicken when we arrived late one night. The staff even found my daughter's ring she left on the bathroom counter and mailed it back to her!

A couple of things to know before you go however. The house is down a narrow dirt road and hard to find. It is may be walk-able to town but that part of Urubamba is not particularly scenic or tourist friendly. We felt a little isolated when we would arrive back there each night after our day long tours. Dinner transportation needs to be planned in advance. This is very much a house for a family or group with their own transportation.

Beautiful property, tucked away

  • 5 of 5

Great communication and support from owner prior to and during stay. Caretakers at the house were unfailingly gracious and helpful. House and grounds both are very beautiful and private, entirely separate from all but their other rental home and the caretakers house. Lower elevation than Cusco and well placed for day trips to sites in the Sacred Valley. Heartily recommended.

We loved our time in Peru and staying at Taytawasi enhanced our Peru vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 7 nights at Taytawasi and enjoyed every minute of our stay in this most comfortable and spacious home. From the delicious breakfast provided every morning to the warm fire burning in the fireplace every evening, all of our needs were tended to by Matgarita and Raul. We had amazing guided tours daily that Hernan coordinated for us that we enjoyed thoroughly. We also spent a couple of afternoons walking around the pretty town of Urubamba, as the house is close to the Plaza de Armas. Be sure to have a meal or two at El Huatacay, their food was amazing! All in all, highly recommend this vacation rental to all who are seeking an amazing time in Peru!!

Exceptional Stay in Sacred Valley

  • 5 of 5

We admit it, we are what Mark Adams would label "Martini Travelers" in his book, Turn Right at Machu Picchu. And this villa exceeded our expectations. It is a great jumping point for Llama Treks (w/ Llama Project), a trip to Machu Picchu via Ollantaytambo and other great sites in the valley. The valley itself is a great place to acclimate, since it is much lower than Cusco. There are many great restaurants in the area that are easily found walking to town or a Motor Taxi (Tuk-Tuk). The overwhelming reason to stay here comes down to Margarita and Raul's hospitality. As the caretakers, Margarita provides a daily scrumptious breakfast and daily house cleaning and Raul looks after starting the evening fire and keeping the grounds immaculate. If you like a little luxury in your adventure travel, this villa will not disappoint. Peru is a fantastic country with wonderful people and we will forever have fond memories of staying in Urubamba at this fantastic property.

Perfect base in the Sacred Valley

  • 5 of 5

Many thanx to Herman for building such a lovely oasis for us to use to explore the Sacred Valley from. From help to arrange a pick up at the airport in Cuzco, to set up tours for the valley, to making sure our stay at his beautiful house was the highlight of our time in Peru.

We would loved to have stayed longer (and would do at least 3 nights there if we had it to do over), but at least we got to enjoy our short time there. The staff took such good care of us, that we felt like we were staying with friends in their home while they were away.

If you get a chance, do book this fantastic place, especially if you are a group of 4-8 visiting Peru.
