About Patricia Morales Barazorda

We are a Christian, God loving family. My name is Patricia and I have been married to my husband Marco for 15 years, we have an 14 year old son and as well as an 11 year old daughter and a baby 2 year . We enjoy doing things as a family, like swimming, going to the gym, cooking, watching movies and going out. We love ice cream; that´s why every Saturday we try to find different places where we can enjoy and taste the best ice cream!. All in all, we are a very caring and warm family.

We are all natives of Cusco. My husband has worked in an insurance company for 10 years and I work with students teaching Spanish. I always do my best to show my students our Peruvian culture.

Patricia Morales Barazorda purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Patricia Morales Barazorda chose Cusco

Visitors will feel as at home because the bedrooms are new and clean. We love taking care of our guests and making them feel at home.

Our apartment is near the historical center where you can go shopping, sight seeing and enjoy the natural beauty that Cusco has to offer.

If you do not like walking you can take a taxi or minibus--it is very cheap and can take you pretty much anywhere you may want to go.

What makes this apartment unique

We always have clean water, both hot and cold available 24 hours a day as opposed to hostals that only offer it during certain times of the day. We also provide mobile phones for our guests during their stay with us to make feel them more comfortable and in case they need to reach us for anything. I speak both Spanish and English and can help you with anything you may need to improve your stay in Cusco.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

I have been home for two weeks, and I am already missing Peru and our wonderful hosts in Cusco! Our family of four with two teenage girls sought an authentic experience that connected us with the culture and people of Cusco. Mission accomplished! We were warmly welcomed at the airport after a long flight, and we immediately felt at home in this apartment. It holds a family very well, with each of us having enough space to relax after a busy day exploring wonderful Cusco. Having a kitchen allowed us to prepare our own breakfast (when we didn't splurge on chocolate croissants at the bakery Qosqo Maki). The furniture is new and clean and the space very well appointed.

Location is everything, and this apartment could not be better positioned to enjoy Cusco and yet escape the tourist crowd. It is just a short walk to Plaza de Armas, and an even shorter walk to San Blas Language School where our girls took Spanish (wonderfully arranged by Patricia, our host). A public market is just five minutes away if you want to pick up fresh food for a delicious dinner at home. Our kids quickly discovered La Esquina, a cafe serving homemade ice cream just 3 minutes from the apartment. You must try the lucuma ice cream for a truly local experience (delicious!). Laundry service is available at the end of the block. We always felt safe.

This apartment had the "home away from home" trifecta: comfortable space, nearby food and sights, and most importantly, a wonderful family. We loved getting to know Patricia and her family, and we greatly appreciate their warm generosity in sharing their language and culture with us. Our kids connected with their kids, and we all enjoyed the exchange of hobbies and music that comes when teenagers connect across cultures. Thinking back on our time in Peru, Machu Picchu was breathtaking, and we loved Ollantaytambo's rushing water and impressive ruins. But it is Patricia and her family who make me smile the most.

Could not have had a better experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great experience during our 5 day stay. Paty, our host, picked us up at the airport and returned us at the end of our stay. The apartment was spacious and as advertised. Paty and her family live right upstairs and she was available to help in many ways. The apartment was clean and well maintained. The location was very good. We walked everywhere we wanted to go. The main square was a 10-15 minute walk. We felt very safe in the location and would definitely stay here again.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I have been meaning to post my review for ages. Finally got time to do it. We stayed at Patricia's apartment for three weeks. Patricia and her family could not have been more helpful from meeting us at the airport to taking us back at the end of our stay. Patricia took us to the local markets, gave us cookery lessons, arranged for an English speaking doctor to make a home visit when my daughter got tonsillitis, and even going to the pharmacy to collect the prescription. Cusco is a unique city to visit, and I would not hesitate in recommending you stay in Patricia's apartment. The apartment itself was very secure and had good hot water, cable TV and WI FI internet.The full kitchen and lounge was a real bonus for saving money by cooking and eating in. but most important was the warm welcome we received from Patricia and her family.

Absolutely comfortable, convenient, and preferable to hotels and B&Bs

  • 5 of 5

Our family of two parents and two children ages 12 and 9 enjoyed this terrific apartment for four nights around our Inca Trail trek in December/January 2013.

The hospitality of the owner and the convenience and comfort of the apartment helped make our stay in Cusco the best part of our travels in Peru. The owner and her family demonstrated genuine concern for our welfare and happy visit.

There is plenty of space across the three bedrooms, living area, and kitchen. Each of us could sleep late in the mornings according to our needs. Several markets and restaurants were convenient in one to five minute walks.

Picturesque San Blas neighborhood was five minutes in one direction walking, Plaza de Armas was ten to twelve minutes in another direction walking, and well stocked supermarkets and local outdoor markets twelve minutes in yet another direction walking.

The owner and her family were most gracious providing airport transportation and meals/snacks and advice that made sure we found some highlights of Cusco including museums, restaurants, hilltops, and ruins, etc., in a too-short visit. We must come back for a longer visit!

What an incredible city and what a great apartment that we can recommend to families, language students, singles or couples benefiting to get out of the typical rotation of hotels and B&Bs and the accompanying tourist trades that are quite costly for this region of Peru.

We found this apartment to be a welcoming, safe, and comfortable home environment. We are experienced travelers and users of VRBO and other accommodations in several countries of europe, south america, and central america, and this apartment in Cusco is now among our favorites.

The earlier positive reviews of this apartment from other visitors and travelers were accurate and helpful.

My staying with the family

  • 5 of 5

I would surely recommend this appartment to anyone who is thinking about renting something in Cusco. The family is friendly, always ready to help when you need some information about the city and the food they had prepared for us was typically Peruvian and really good. The bedrooms are private, very clean and have nice, warm sheets. The appartment is at walkingdistance from the Plaza de Armas and lays in a beautiful and safe neighbourhood.

A month stay

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I from Belgium stayed for a month with the family in a nice appartment. They lived upstairs, but if we wanted a meal the mother of the family would always make food for us. The bedroom was perfect, with a lot of sheets, which are really important at night in Cusco. The family is friendly and open. The food was good. And it´s really close to the centre, you only need a 5 minute walk. If you need some information, they´ll help you with it.

We are located within a 10 minute walk to Plaza De Armas which is the cultural center of Cusco. Directly behind the Plaza is the historical and artesenal district of San Blas with numerous stores, restaraunts and bars. There is also an old market named San Pedro within five minutes of the Plaza and from there you can take a quick taxi ride up to the top of the mountain to view the historic ruins of Sacseyhuaman.

We can provide information on most everything in and around Cusco.
