6 of us from all over the U.S. met for an unforgettable week in Oaxaca. I had been to Oaxaca before and wanted to share it with my friends. I found this amazing house online and it became for all of us a perfect island of peace and beauty in this wonderful city. After spending a day exploring the city or the neighboring villages, it was great to come back to this house to rest, relax and enjoy each other's company. The photos don't do justice to the spaciousness and the beauty of this house. It's very well maintained, with many plants and trees in the central courtyard, surrounded by comfortable parlors on the ground floor and spacious bedrooms on the second. The layout gives everyone as much privacy as we could want, with plenty of common space where we could gather and enjoy being together. The kitchen is a gem, very open and inviting, with everything we could want for preparing our own meals. (But almost always we went out to eat, because the food in Oaxaca is amazing!) The location is perfect, right in the heart of the historic district, within walking distance of everything, but very quiet and separate from the hustle and bustle. We reluctantly left at the end of the week, but were already planning our next trip and look forward to staying here again.
