We stayed in Cusco for two nights when first arriving to Peru. After a long wait in Lima airport, we took an early morning flight to Cusco and Carlos had arranged for a car to meet us at the airport and take us to Second Home. We arrived before check-in and Carlos started us off with some coca tea and breakfast. We sat in the quaint courtyard and did some quick check-ins using the WiFi. We were also entertained by the resident puppy, Toby. Carlos pointed out some things on the map so we can settle some errands and we headed towards the plaza while our room was prepared. Second Home is located within a 10-15 minute walk to Plaza de Armas, hidden in one of the small cobblestone streets away from the commotion. The Church of San Blas is also nearby, with a few of the art galleries and souvenir shops surrounding the small plaza. Within this plaza is the restaurant Pachapapa recommended by Carlos, where we had one of the better meals during our trip.
Our room at Second Home was cozy, with a separate seating area where we could unload our full backpacks. The bathroom is open and airy, appointed in ceramic tile and with skylights. We were able to relax comfortably even after a long day of travel and walking around town. The nights were a little chilly, so the room came equipped with a space heater which kept us comfortable at night. Breakfast was made ever morning by Carlos himself, although we chose to sleep-in one of the days as we were quite comfortable in bed. Although there were others staying, the premises is small enough such that it always feels quiet and peaceful.
Overall, we had a pleasant stay at this personable accommodation, with the friendly owner and staff and playful puppy.
