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.

*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).

The house and property is beautifully maintained and very clean.
If you want a great house for your Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu visit look no further. The house is perfectly located in the middle of everything you need to see. The owners are excellent to work with and are very helpful. The caretakers Raul and Margarita were fantastic, they took care of us daily. Breakfast was a great perk, Margarita made fresh fruit juice every mornimg for breakfast. A fire was made nightly once the sun went down to take out the chill. I really can’t say enough good things about this house, the property, the location and how the owners pay close attention to all your needs. I wish we could’ve stayed longer and would rent this house again.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review!! We are glad you had a great time at our place.
Beautiful, peaceful place
Our family of 5 was on an extended travel in many places including a month in Peru. We visited all the highlight stops in the Amazon and Andes and were looking for a place for some down time. Taytawasi certainly provided this. A well appointed chill spot for small excursions to Ollantaytanbo, Moray, Maras, etc. Would recommend highly for families particularly. Great staff Margarita and Raul kept the place clean and cosy.
Only one word describes this property - EXCELLENT!!!
All the pics and reviews tell how nice this property is. You will love it. Will meet and exceed your expectations. If in sacred valley in the future we will stay here again. Thanks to Raul and Margarita for being great caretakers!
Exactly what we hoped for!
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
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
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.
