Cozy studio/room with bathroom and all services needed in a nice apartment with a large library.
At walking distance of shopping center, banks, restaurants, pharmacies, etc.
Your host: Mariella, very knowledgeable in ancient Andean history. Luv to share it!.
All guests from Airbnb can have access everywhere in my house. All guests can use my refrigerator, stove, washing machine if need be. Guests are more than welcome to my large library, I have books in English as well as in Spanish. My apartment is small but packed with/ filled with "culture" ...mostly related to the ancient Andean cultures...from pre columbian times to the Inca Empire...and beyond.I have been sort to say" lucky" to have become interested in the insights of Peruvian culture. Due to such "luck" it is unavoidable to stay at my home and not grasp what Cusco, and surroundings, Machu Picchu, etc. are all about... My guests get interested by being surrounded by the authenticity of the "things" I keep at home...staying at my home is a true introduction on what is the city of Cusco about and other sites of interest...
I welcome all Airbnb guests that wish to stay at a home which will bring upon them a great place to stay and in the meantime learn about Andean history, geography, customs, traditions, etc. I have done a lot of adventure traveling; such as treks, river rafting throughout the south Andes of Peru. I also happen to be very knowledgeable on textiles. Staying at my small apartment can be an interesting experience while traveling.

I work from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Guests can arrive up to 7 a.m. or at 4 p.m. or later. And depart at the same times mentioned. No guest(s) can depart my house without me being present, unless we have previously coordinated departure time. This is a strict house rule...thank you for your understanding.

Con la frecuencia necesaria. Los oriento, les doy consejos y datos que pueden hacer su visita mas interesante. Les ayudo con sus planes de viaje, especialmente como personalizar su viaje. Converso con ellos sobre toda clase de temas. Si mis huespedes quieren estar solos, respeto su espacio en casa.
Depende del huesped si quiere interactuar.
Yo trabajo de 8 am a 3:30 pm. Pero estoy a disposicion para mis huespedes cuandos los tiempos lo permitenl He tenido que cambiar
las horas de arribo y partida: 7 a.m. y de 4 p.m. en adelante. Yo tengo que estar presente cuando los huespedes se van de mi casa, es un "requerimiento" obligado...Bajo ninguna circumstancia el huesped puede partir de mi casa sin previa coordinacion conmigo.
I interact with my guests frequently, albeit. If my guests show an interest and/or a wish to be oriented, I am more than open to give them advice and information in order for them to have a most interesting and memorable visit. I help them out with their travel plans, especially on how to customize their trips.
We have good conversation on all kinds of topics.
If my guests feel like being left alone, I respect their own space by themselves I work from 8 am to 3:30 pm. The hours of arrival and departure are: 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. on. I have to be present when my guests depart, it is a "must". Under no circumstances a guest can depart from my house without previous coordination with me. And less off take my house keys if a guest(s) leaves on his/her own volition without previous advice.
Definitely yes! I would like for my guests to be absolutely sincere and open with me. If something is not of my guests liking I would like to be told about it immediately, instead of keeping it in and leave my house without mentioning about "something" that could have been "fixed right there and then" and later at their review mention it!!!
I appreciate people being sincere. If something breaks down; for example: the hot water shower doesn't work, the room is cold, the wifi is slow, etc. I can fix whatever right away.
I Had an only review where a guest mentioned; i.e.: the wifi was slow..."I didn't get any wifi in the room"...THE BEST in this case...would have been to mention to me his or hers "predicament" and I would have e.g.: restarted the modem...or done "something" to resolve the "impasse" such as share my internet from my mobile phones if necessary.
I wish my guests feel confident enough to tell me about their "predicaments" while at their stay in my house. NOT mention it in their "comment" later when "nothing" can be done...
What is the purpose for guests to mention "negative things" at their stay after the fact? What can a host possibly do after the fact?
I believe that Airbnb has been created, thought about, and has been founded on a set of values such as trust, respect, honesty, responsibility...etc. Asides, of course, of being a great option on the hospitality business; Airbnb actually "took off the matt from the traditional lodging options feet" by offering an alternative way of (URL HIDDEN) came up as a "an amazing" alternative...for both...guest and host.
Last but not least, I won't host children as my last experience with a family with a child was a nightmare. They slept 3 in a bed for 2 and they said they got red spots due to bugs in the bed? 3 in a bed of 2 is not right, they were hot, sweaty...etc. and blamed my bed. The child was hyper active and his parents couldn't control him. They broke the key of the entrance gate probably because their kid was out of control when trying to open it. The key issue affected all of my neighbors. The kid went into my son's room and grabbed my son's collectors item figurines...broke 2 beyond repair and replacement. They blamed my dog for their kid's poop on the room floor... No more kids, sorry.
To be respectful. I give all my guests the house keys. I always take time to show my guests how to lock and unlock the main door of the apartment. Thus, when my guests leave the apartment they have to make sure they locked it right; samewise, when they arrive i.e. late at night to make sure they lock it well.
Finally, and MOST important HOUSE RULE: ALL of my guests cannot bring home a stranger(s), be it a foreigner and specially local people they have met in i.e. the streets, a bar, a tour, etc. Any guest(s) cannot accept to be driven home or accept the offer to be accompanied to the gate of the apartment building, less off to the door of our apartment (3rd floor). My guests cannot give any stranger(s) my house keys under NO circumstances or the address where he or she are staying...If my guests need to meet with people, they can do it at a public place, not (even) at my gate/door entrance.
If a guest(s) have forgotten how to get home they can call me, I always give them my phone number, and the best is to add me to (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN).
As I work from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. arrival and departure times are: 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. on. Under no circumstances guests can depart at their final date without me being present unless previous coordination with me. If a guest(s) have to leave my house due to an unforeseen circumstance they have to immediately get in touch with me, I am always available.They can text me or call me if they have to leave at a time not previously coordinated with me. And guests that leave due to odd circumstances cannot take my house keys. If a guest cannot get in touch with me, he or she can at least leave a note and my house keys on top of the dining room table and leave by just shutting the door. However, he or she will have to somehow text me or call me at some point. NO guest(s) leaving my house at their own volition can take my house keys. Sorry! for insisting on this but I have had already one bad experience. On weekends arrivals and departures can be handled as I will make sure I will be there. In other words, on weekends there can be flexibility.
