About Catherine MacIntyre Rosenberg

I purchased this home in 1996 when I fell in love with the valley. I love my time in the gardens or going to the market to get fresh fruits and other delicious foods. I have met so many wonderful people who are life friends and have allowed me to make me always feel at home in their magnificent courntry. It is an amazing experience. Mi casa es su casa.

Great, Great, GREAT Place! The only place to stay in the Sacred Valley!

  • 5 of 5

Cathy's place is the best! She was so helpful in providing helpful hints for travel and touring in Peru, from getting thru the airport, to what to see and what to miss if you are on a tight schedule. The property is much larger than what is shown in the pictures. Beds were comfy and plenty warm. A little chilly in the mornings, but nothing that the space heaters couldn't take care of.

We also hired Isaias as a driver and tour guide for 3 of our 4 days here. He picked us up at the airport, helped us do some shopping in Cusco, before heading down to Urubamba and got us all settled. He dropped us off and picked us up at the train to Machu Pichuu our first day, and was our tour guide for the two days after that. Very knowledgable in the ancient history of the Incas and native Indians.

Property also has an on site manager, Zarella, who will also shop & provide meals for you on request. Highly recommend at least one or two meals. We had her cook her Loma Saltonado! Superb!

Even though we will likely not get back to Peru, we'd stay here again in a heart beat!

Thanks Cathy for sharing your lovely vacation home with us.

Owner's Response: I was so relieved when you arrived at the house. When your flight was cancelled i knew it can throw things off but it all worked out. Isaías is amazing and I knew you were in good hands. The house is fun and Zarela cooking typical Andean dishes adds to the Sacred Valley experience. Thank you for staying with us. Cathy, Zarela and Isaías

Wonderful property and people!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this comfortable and relaxing home for a visit to the Sacred Valley! My family recently spent several days exploring the beautiful Valley and surrounding sites and were so happy to come home to this lovely spot and delicious home-cooked food by Zarela at the end of every day. Cathy, the owner, was so helpful in recommending things to do and alleviating my worries about keeping my 4 teenagers fed and entertained! She also connected us to a wonderful guide and driver, Edwin, who made us feel very comfortable and showed us many of the highlights and out-of-the way places we never would have discovered on our own. We had an amazing trip that included Macchu Piccu, horseback riding, visiting an animal sanctuary, and eating cuy like a local. We had a wonderful and unforgettable visit - so grateful to Cathy, Edwin, and Zarela!

perfect home for exploring Sacred Valley

  • 5 of 5

We landed in Cusco and headed straight to the house, perfect for acclimating to the altitude. The house was roomy and comfortable and the gardens and mountain views were gorgeous. Cathy arranged a driver, Isaias, who picked us up at the airport and was available for us during our entire stay for very reasonable fee. He took us to explore Pisac, Ollyantaytambo, to and from train station when we went to Machu Picchu, through Moray, stopping for pictures, whatever we wanted to do, just a great guide! Zarela made us breakfast each day and a couple dinners upon request as well. Again, very reasonable fee and she did the shopping and preparation. She is a sweet lady and wonderful cook. We took some DVDs to watch in the evenings, but ended up reading by the fireplace instead. So cozy!

I highly recommend Cathy's house. She was quick to answer questions, and make sure we were all set.

Thank you, Cathy. We loved it!

Owner's Response: It was wonderful for all of us to be given the opportunity to help with your journey to The Sacred Valley. The fire in the fireplace is a lovely way to relax after touring and share the events of the day. You were open to suggestions which is a delight for us. Zarela loves cooking a special meal and showing off her chef apron and hat! Fun times. Thank you so much for staying in my casa.

The house is beautiful, fully equipped, and perfectly situated to explore all the sights.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with my self, my husband and two children aged 8 and 10. The house was perfect! We spent our evenings unwinding by the fireplace and mornings reading in bed before heading out to explore the area.

The beds are great and beding is wonderfully warm and comfortable. Zarela lives in a house on the property and was helpful with our needs. She is even willing to prepare home cooked meals for a very reasonable price. It was wonderful to come home to dinner prepared after spending the day hiking.

Cathy connected us to Isais who is a local guide. Again for a reasonable price he was willing to take us throughout the area and really help us absorb the culture. He was a wonderful guide and translator. He is also just a really great person that we enjoyed getting to know.

Cathy was wonderfully responsive and helpful whenever we needed something. I would highly recommend this gem!

Great Private Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great property nestled away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Great location offering privacy and not far from local shopping etc. Conveniently located close to main city to catch train to Machu Picchu. House Keeper was great, she made a few meals for my family and I, and they were great. Overall, my family and I LOVED the house. I would highly recommend a stay at this lovely property. We had a guide that was recommended by the owner of the property. Isaas was a great resource for information on the area. He was well versed in the various customs and knew the hot spots to take us. His laid back attitude was great, giving us time to see the sights, but also to shop and enjoy some of the great food the area had to offer. He made the experience memorable and I will never forget it.
