Peaceful retreat in the beautiful countryside of Oaxaca. Spend the day in the bustling city or outlying villages and return to the cool, calming respite of 'El Estudio' each evening. Enjoy views of the Oaxaca valley from the spacious hill-side veranda or relax on the colonial style patio.
The property includes the main house with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, fully equipped kitchen and laundry room with washer and dryer. The casita with a large comfortable bedroom and private bath. Now a spacious lower patio with pool and cabaña.
Yes it is clean, well equipped and everything works. Florencio the manager speaks English, Spanish and Mixteco. He also keeps the internet running. He can arrange transportation, cooking classes and meals from a nominal fee. Let him know what your interests are and he can get you pointed in the right direction.
You won't be disappointed!! This is not a vacation rental it is our home and yours in Oaxaca.
We welcome children. However the house is built on a hillside and there are stairs inside and outside and the house has many breakables. The house is also somewhat ADA friendly. Please call about this. Pets are also welcome.
My wife and I first visited Oaxaca in 1996 and from the moment we arrived we wanted to stay. We returned to Oaxaca every year and in 2002 we purchased El Estudio. We didn't intend on buying the house as soon as we did but when we stumbled upon it we couldn't resist! We are continually improving the property and adding local art.
My wife Melinda is originally from San Diego and a RN. and I am from Los Angeles and retired. We currently live in Santa Maria on the Central Coast of California.
We actually bought the home to retire in and retirement didn't happen. So we decided to share this home with others.
Some of the unique benefits of this property are the neighbors and the location. Those guests that get to know them sometimes get invited to neighborhood functions. The house is almost 500 feet higher than the center of Oaxaca and is a few degrees cooler as well as having cleaner air. The mountains behind us go up to 10,000 feet and reminds me a lot of the Sierra Nevada in California. This is in fact a National Park and has trails, bike trails and cabins available for your use.
Located in the Zapotec village of San Pablo Etla 20 minutes from the center of Oaxaca city. We are at 5400' elevation and a few degrees cooler than the city.
