Beautiful property, great hosts/staff
My family and I had a great holiday in the Sacred Valley and Villa Tayta was a big component to it. Our hosts were very helpful in coordinating any arrangements that would give us the full experience of the Sacred Valley, including culinary and cultural activities.
I highly recommend the property and the hosts, they will make all efforts to make your stay an unforgettable one.
Beautiful experience of Peru
I recently led a group of 16 adults to Peru with the help of Hernan and his network of skilled drivers, guides and house staff. Booking this property was the best thing I did for my Peruvian Adventure. Many in my group have said this was the best vacation they have ever had. I cannot thank Hernan enough for making it so.
I rented both villas for 5 days and worked with Hernan in planning our experience according to our interests and needs. I highly recommend this property and Hernan's assistance to anyone considering the Sacred Valley and travels beyond to Cusco, Puno, Colca Canyon, and Arequipa. Hernan can and will provide transportation and guides as needed.
We were picked up at the Cusco airport by Walter (our driver for nearly 2 weeks) and Juan (our guide for the first week who is el maximo! simply the best person ever). They were professional and personable, so much so that there were big tears when we had to say our goodbyes. Together we shared the sights of the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cusco. We were well rested in the beautiful grounds of the villas with the attentive staff (Marta is beautiful in every way) available to help us with anything we needed after full days out and about.
Our 20 passenger Sprinter Van with Walter at the helm was always timely and happy to stop at the market in town for extra water and wine at the end of our touring days or evening dinners in Urubamba.
The villas are magnificent, beginning the day with a fantastic breakfast and ending with a fire in the hearth. The bedrooms worked well for our mixed group of couples and singles. We lacked for nothing. It was soothing to wake each morning to the vistas of the mountains and gardens. We even had a rainbow one afternoon! Traveling can be exhausting, especially with the addition of altitude issues, the villas provided space to rest; a true home away from home.
Hernan helped us on our second week in Peru when we left the Sacred Valley. He set up our driver (Walter is our hero and friend now) and a guide (Leo, professional and fun) to escort us to Puno/Lake Titicaca, Colca Canyon and Arequipa. It was so nice to have the familiarity of Hernan's help even after we left the property.
We felt so cared for our entire trip. This was far more than renting a place to stay for a few days. Our experience was a broadening of our family through Hernan and his beautiful property, staff and local contacts. Our experience was very special to us. Thank you Hernan!
Beautiful house in beautiful location
We stayed at Villa Tayta with 3 families. The house is beautiful and the views are amazing. Margarita and Raul were wonderful and made sure everything during the stay went smoothly. The breakfast each morning was a great start before our excursions. We would recommend this house for anyone traveling to the sacred valley.
There is no reason not to book this Villa!
Everything was spot on, 5 stars. We stayed 6 nights. Very comfortable Villa with plenty of space. I chose this Villa for its size for my adult family of 6 and it’s location that’s rather central in the Sacred Valley. I decided to stay in one place and venture out on day trips instead of traveling between cities and staying at different hotels. Communication with the owner was easy, very timely and thorough. Margarita and her family did a great job as caretakers. They were also very prompt, accommodating. 8am breakfast meant an 8am breakfast to the minute!
I ended up using the sister site of this Villa for tours. Prices were very comparable or less than other tour services in the area for 6 people. I’ve never had such a prompt tour service. We ended up using them for all our major transport, including to and from the Cusco airport. Walter our driver was always there right on time and was a great driver. Safe and efficient. The guides were great, and we really enjoyed Juan on our excursion to Rainbow Mountain.
Urubamba was a pleasant town to go out and explore and we found some great restaurants. The owner has some great recommendations if you need them. Margarita called us a taxi service to get downtown on our second night. Texas Transportation. They told us they used the WhatsApp app so we ended up using them like an Uber. A simple text and they were on their way. $60 soles round trip in a 7 passenger van.
Top 3 spots for us were Ollantaytambo, Rainbow Mountain, and Machu Picchu. We are a hiking and climbing family from Colorado so the more of that we had the more fun we had.
Don’t hesitate on booking this Villa, it also books up very early so plan accordingly. Just a tip, I booked my Macchu Picchu and Huayana Picchu climb tickets first and then built the trip around that day, there are only 400 of those tickets allowed daily, 200 for a 7-8am climb and 200 available for a 10-11am climb. We needed the 10am climb tickets as it is the only one that works with taking the early 5am Olllantaytambo train to MP. I booked the MP/HP tickets 5 months early and there were only 65 available for the day I wanted.
I’m glad I did the MP as a day trip. We spent a late afternoon in Aqus Caliente after we finished with MP / HP. It’s a bit crowded and touristy and we were glad to get back to the Villa that night.
A beautiful home
Everything about this home was amazing. I felt at peace the entire time. Home is just as the pictures show. The staff was so friendly and attentive. They were always around when we needed them and even before. We spoke minimal Spanish but were able to communicate our needs and if there was anything complicated we just used a translation app. Owners were not in town during our stay but were extremely helpful. Each time I emailed Hernan I thought he probably will not respond because of the time I sent the message but I always got a timely response. I would not want to stay anywhere else if I visited Peru again. View was great. Fireplace great. Distance to markets and restaurants, great!
Great Overall Experience!
This was a great property with great services and amenities provided. From the beginning all inquiries all questions were promptly answered. The great communication continued after the booking in offering assistance to tours, transportation, and trip planning ideas. The property's website offers additional ideas and information. Hernán plays the part of concierge very well and all services that he arranged were quality and professional tour groups. In fact, we were very pleased by a few of his suggestions and arrangements including; private culinary experience cooked at the house, an intimate trip to the small community of Willoc, and the Peruvian cooking lessons at the Tawa restaurant.
The caretaker, Margherita, and her husband were very attentive and friendly as well. As others mentioned breakfast was always prepared to our schedule and the fire was made in the evenings providing a great feeling of home. Additionally the transportation service with our main driver Richard provided a sense of familiarity and began to anticipate our needs.
This is a perfect place to stay for a group or family traveling together. We used it to explore Machu Picchu and the sacred valley for five days and did not run out of thing to do and places to eat.
