“Tripadvisor is accurate once again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2009

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.

We travelled throughout Peru for a month, so stayed in many places.
The Green House was a spectacular haven. We were there for several
days and everyday was a delight. Gabriel and Brian became like
family. Each evening after a wonderful meal (great cooking by Gabriel)
we would sit by the fire place and enjoy an evening of conversation.
While our husbands were on the Lares trek, my friend and I just
relaxed and enjoyed the view.

I chose to stay in the Sacred Valley instead of Cusco to acclimatize. SV is lower than Cusco in altitude. That said, the sunshine, fresh air, friendly hosts Bryan and Gabriel, and being away from the dust/hustle & bustle of Cusco made The Greenhouse Peru a haven! It´s a great base for exploring Machu Picchu, Ollanta, Pisac etc. Do take note that it is about 1.5 hrs drive away from Cusco. The place is also home to 3 friendly (and probably luckiest) dogs in Peru.
Service wise- at night, the hosts always ensure a hot water bottle is warming the bed, and when i needed to wake up super early to start my trek in Tinki (Southern Cusco), they woke up early too to prepare my brekkie beforehand!
Dinner is also available upon request at a great price, and Gabriel is a whiz in the kitchen!

We have only just returned home from our brilliant trip to Peru and all I could think about how much I missed The Green House!!! Peru overall was awesome, the Ina Trail, the scenery etc, but what made it especially memorable were the places you stayed and the people you meet. Bryon and Gabriel deserve 20 out of 10, I am not kidding! we felt like we were staying at the Greenhouse not as paying guests but as long lost friends. They will truly welcome you with welcomed arms and will make your stay as comfortable as possible. Gabriel is a truly speculator cook that we ate every night there! my mouth still water at the thought of his chicken surprise pot!! Bryon also directed us to the secret waterfall walk, which turned out to be a highlight of our trip as we were absolutely alone and there were no other tourists around to fight for the magnificent view of the valley, see it to believe it!! We loved everything about our stay at The Greenhouse and still can't believe our luck in finding this place!! Bryon, Gabriel, Lika and Paco (sorry I can't remember the name of the black puppy!) - we will definitely be back!!

Wow! This place is just excellent. It lacks absolutely nothing. From 24/7 hot water for tea and a dvd room with all latest releases to the most amazing and serene surroundings. We stayed in the Green House after 4 days on the Inka Trail and it was the perfect remedy for the exhausted state that we were in. We arrived late in the evening and dinner was waiting for us (and what yummy 3-course dinner it was!). The room was beautiful, relaxing and comfortable adorned with local handicrafts. We woke up the next morning to realize that we were not only within lush gardens but surrounded by mountains. We chose to spend most of our 3-day stay in the Green House (why would you want to leave?), reading our books, playing with the adorable dogs, eating their delicious food and chatting with Gabriel and Bryan, the best hosts ever. Gabriel and Bryan also put a lot of effort in giving back to the local community and that counts. I really miss this place and hope to be back there soon. For anyone traveling in Peru, I think a stop at the Green House to refuel is in order.

The greenhouse was simply one of the most wonderful places to live.Every morning when you come out of the door you have the most beautiful prospect of an estimate and have lots of mountains in the background. So beautiful and idyllic that it almost could not get enough and just wanted to sit and enjoy it. Gabriel & Bryan who runs this place is the most fantastic hosts. Always happy and welcoming and very helpful. Wonderful people who just come to love. Hot spot is recommended for all who want to live an idyllic location among beautiful people.Absolut a place I always want to return to when I come to the edges igen.There is a little longer to restaurants and city life, but there is always buses and taxis which cost very little.
