My husband and I stayed with Lily and Lyle in GringoWasi during Sept/Oct. They made us feel like part of their family. Our room was very comfortable and spacious and felt very homely. Nothing was too much trouble for either of them. Both Lily and Lyle are very knowledgeable about the Cusco area and the tours Lyle takes you on. Lily and Lyle offer a good old fashioned service where their guests needs are put first. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to friends who wanted to be based near Cusco.

I have stayed at GringoWasi twice–once in 2014 for 3 weeks and the next year for about 2 weeks. I would not consider going to Peru without making this my base of operations for the Sacred Valley and beyond!
The food is spectacular—full breakfasts every morning—even eggs cooked to order; the beds and pillows were very comfortable (a rarity in Peru);everything—bathroom, kitchen, rooms, living area—is very clean and neat. Lyle and Lilly were the perfect hosts and put up with our myriad change in plans over the three weeks, patiently keeping us informed of all the details we needed for our excursions.
There are many beautiful hikes and walks in the area that Lyle and Lilly will direct you to. In the room is a detailed booklet explaining all the services and recommendations. In the living room is a larger book full of ideas for excursions, which Lyle can arrange for you. In fact I have used Lyle’s services to arrange a tour to the jungle for me even when I was not staying there…I trust him to find the best guides for the best price! He also can arrange a driver for just about where ever you want to go. Because they spend lots of time visiting with their guests, Lyle and Lily quickly learn your special interests and the way you like to travel. Because they are very familiar with the area, they can make suggestions based on what you tell them.
When you are in the process of making your plans to stay at GringoWasi, Lyle is always very prompt at responding to any email requests or questions. I have recommended GringoWasi to friends and acquaintances and they have all been very happy with their stay. It is also very relaxing place to decompress after an arduous trek–just kick back and relax for a few days!
I heartily recommend Huarocondo and GringoWasi—you won’t be disappointed!
We had the great opportunity of making GringoWasi a base for trip in Peru so we in the end we spent over a 6 weeks there over a 4 month period. Can’t express how wonderful the experience was for local knowledge and for the warmth of Lyle and Liliana. We ended up at one point being the only foreigners and we were so welcomed. I decided to go to church to experience an old world service and I was welcomed by the priest and shook the hands of a scared young child during the service. This is Peru. And easy distance from Cusco and great personal information and tours from GringoWasi. Basically a safe place to explore real Peru.
