CASA DE EMILY - DREAM APARTMENT

Oaxaca Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

A beautiful apartment in downtown Oaxaca. You are walking distance to the zocalo (town square). Shops and restaurants are plentiful and varied. You'll be tempted to spend more time than you should sipping margaritas on your city view terrace with the world famous Monte Alban in the background.

The apartment is located in a safe and secure neighborhood at the Northwest edge of the Centro Historico. Museums, art galleries, cathedral, churches and historic landmarks are within easy walking distance.

We try to take care of our guests not only when they are in their beautiful apartment, but also when they are out on the town. We know that any new town can be confusing. To help, we give our guest the use of a local cell phone and contact numbers for those moments when you find yourself on a street corner, wondering which way to go or where a good restaurant is in the area. The local cell phone also eliminates those nasty 7000 dollar a minute roaming charges that were never quite explained correctly by your carrier.

The owner, lives 5 minutes from the apartment and is available to answer your questions about the city or arrange anything from private tours to cooking lessons for his guests. After living almost 14 years in Oaxaca, Anthony has extensive knowledge of the language schools and their programs and would be happy to help with any information you might need to help you decide on the best school for you. Or, if you prefer, he can arrange private tutors for you or your small group. We think private Spanish classes in the comfort and privacy of your beautiful vacation home is a great option. Best of all, with home classes, you can pick your own schedule. You set your preferred schedule between early morning classes (from 8 to 12:00 am), afternoon classes (from 1 to 5 pm) or evening classes (from 7 to 11 pm). We feel the night classes are a fantastic option since your days are free to see the sites or go on tours and not spend the generous Oaxacan sunshine inside a concrete classroom. If you are staying several weeks, class schedules can be changed by the week if desired. Classes are held in your apartment for 4 hours a day, 5 days a week.

Come and see us. We think you'll love the place.

About The Owner

I have been living and building in Oaxaca City for the last 13 years. My wife and 3 children were all born in this magical town. My inlaws have lived in the Oaxaca valley for many generations and dedicate thenselves to the productions of the colchas (hand woven bedspreads) and other hand loomed items. I spend my time building homes and apartment buildings, and when time permits, giving guided tours to my favorite locations.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1999

Casa de Emily

  • 5 of 5
My family spent a month at Casa de Emily. We had a wonderful time. Anthony and Sandra were extremely gracious hosts, always ready to help. When we had trouble with our return flight to the U.S., Anthony stepped in and fixed the problem. Sandra is a delightful human being who gave us lots of helpful tips on how to navigate the city. The second-floor apartment is magical. Designed by Anthony, it opens onto a tiled patio that provides a spectacular view of the city. If you are lucky enough to stay there, I think you’ll find that before long the line separating inside and outside disappears. The street and neighborhood are full of life, and it is just a 10 or 15 minute walk to the main historical points of interest. Believe me, you will love the apartment, the neighborhood, and the owners.

Stunning views of Oaxaca!

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time at this house. It has incredible views of the whole city and is only a 10-15 minute walk from the zocalo. I would definitely stay here again when I return to Oaxaca.

Spacious home in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this home with our three kids and had a great experience. The owners went out of their way to bring in an extra bed for one of our kids. The home was spacious, clean, and an easy walk to Santa Domingo. Anthony went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. He even arranged for a cab ride to the airport at the end of our stay. We highly recommend this property.

You Can See Forever!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent the month of January, 2014, at Casa de Emily in beautiful Oaxaca, MX.
We have traveled to and stayed in several great cities in Mexico over the past six years, but
this was our first stay in Oaxaca. We had heard many wonderful things about Oaxaca and decided to check it out. We were initially apprehensive about all the outside steps up to the one-level Penthouse Unit, but our concerns vanished, once we ascended up and into this charming, expansive, modern, fully-equiped two-bedroom jewel of a 'home away from home'.

The views across the valley and over to Monte Alban never ceased to excite us. Sunsets were
frequently beautiful, beyond compare! The Rooftop space was huge, easy to access, and afforded
even grander views, which we hadn't expected to be possible. Washing our clothes and hanging
them to dry on the Rooftop clotheslines became am activity I looked forward to each week.
The air is so dry that clothes are ready to take down, almost as quickly as they are hung up.

The kitchen was well-stocked, the bathrooms were spacious, the beds were comfortable,
and the apartment was clean, open, and flooded with natural light. We loved walking down
to the main Zocalo, usually returning on foot, but sometimes we took a taxi, if we
were too tired from a long day out and about. Great T.V. and Wifi, too.

The restaurants within walking distance were numerous. They offered fresh, delicious foods
at reasonable prices. Anthony was always available by phone and/or e-mail. He was helpful
and kind. We especially appreciated that we could speak to him in English and not have
to embarrass ourselves with our 'pigeon Spanish'. The limited Spanish we do speak was
adequate for our stay in Oaxaca. I've always enjoyed the game of Charades, so I often used
hand/body motions to make myself understood. A good Spanish-English dictionary also
came in handy.

One day we took a wonderful tour to Mitla, Tule, Tapitlan, and the mineral water/falls
up in the mountains. We also toured Monte Alban, which is a must-see.
My husband needed medical attention and stayed in the Reforma Hospital. We were
thoroughly impressed with the doctors, nurses, and personal care he received--and at a price
about 1/10th the amount we'd have paid in the States. Amazing, but true!!

A great connection for English Speaking Tourists is the Oaxaca Lending Library (OLL). It is on Pino Suarez, near LLano Park. Check it out!
P.S. We will return!

Beautiful and Comfortable Apt

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was stellar. It's gorgeous, extremely well laid out and allowed for ample room for two of us. Four people would be comfortable as well. We enjoyed making many meals in the apartment, having coffee and breakfast on the terrace, etc. Even though it's a hearty walk into town , my husband and I didn't mind. We actually lost weight with all the walking, so it was great for us. There are many steep stairs going up, but again didn't mind. If we went back and forth into town a couple of times, we'd sometimes take a cab back at night. The neighborhood is really sweet and we explored everywhere and loved it. Anthony was great to help us with a bathroom problem and was responsive always as we needed. There were mosquitos that were inside the place but we managed with repellant. The washer was useful , the housekeeping service was appreciated and all the kitchen appliances were perfect. When we go back, we'd stay in the 2nd floor unit again b/c it has the large outdoor terrace, which extends directly from the dining room, allowing for a great flow. We loved this place .

Casa De Emily is the perfect spot to be in Oaxaca!

  • 5 of 5
We originally were going to book the 3rd floor, but it was rented at the time, so we stayed on the 2nd floor and oh, am I really glad we did! The 2nd floor has the same layout as the top floor, but with 1000 square feet of gorgeous patio space, with the same awesome view. It was open sala living at it's finest...two beautiful large wooden sliding french doors open up to a beautiful covered area with a table and chairs, then there was another table with an umbrella in a different area, surrounded by lovely built-in gardens...we sat out every evening and watched some of the most beautiful Mexican sunsets fall behind the mountains, and the city below had lights that twinkled at night like it was Christmas. It was so fun to hear the local daily noises such as the gas man driving through the neighborhood periodically, with his loudspeaker that sounded like a cow, alerting anyone who needs more gas,...same thing with the water man.."Agua! Agua!" and you knew it's time to refill your water jug.We watched the locals make their way home in the evenings, surprisingly even several women walking home at dark alone, with no problem. We have traveled all over Mexico and have always felt safe wherever we go, and Oaxaca felt even more so. Anthony was the most gracious landlord, he was very accomodating, and wanted to make sure that we gave him a list of any little things we might need when we got there, our plane arrived very late at night, so that was awesome. We will definately stay at Anthony's place next trip to Oaxaca, just can't say enough good things about the perfect place to stay.
