The Green House deserves the high rating and praise it has received on Tripadvisor. I booked 7 days there with my family (after checking Tripadvisor) and was not disappointed.
It is a beautiful place right in the middle of the sacred valley and is surrounded by farmland. A good location for a day trip to Cusco, all of the valley towns and ruins, as well as Machu Picchu.
Breakfast was the same each day. A freshly prepared fruit bowl, a couple of scrambled eggs, orange juice, coffee, and hot bread with jam. All very good.
The local bus is easy to use for transportation in the valley. You just wave when you see one coming... it is as simple as that.
Gabriel can tell you what the fares should be.
Brian and Gabriel speak English fluently and were able to explain everything we needed to know before going out and exploring the valley each day. My family does not speak Spanish , except for the most common words (hello, how much, some numbers...). We really had no problems... can't say that we didn't have a few "challenges" but that's part of the fun travelling in Peru.
By the way -- I felt safe everywhere we went in valley with my family.
The solar hot water was impressive. No shortage of really hot water at any time.
The "four bed Master" was a regular sized room with four beds and not much else. I kind of expected it to be bigger, but it worked out fine. The room and bathroom were spotless.
We had a great stay at the Greenhouse.
