RUSTIC MEXICAN STYLE COUNTRY PARADISE

Oaxaca Villa Rental Photos and Description

Country House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

With vistas spanning the mountains behind and views of the best sunsets in Oaxaca across the valley below, you will never want to leave this country paradise. Casa El Barco was built years ago to capture the cool breezes and the vistas of the local hills above Oaxaca. Only 20 minutes from downtown Oaxaca, it is the ideal destination for those wishing to take advantage of all the city has to offer while returning home to the quiet and clean air of San Pablo Etla, a traditional Zapotec village.

Built of adobe and decorated in a rustic Mexican style with crafts from all over the state of Oaxaca, the house features modern facilities with an old world charm. El Barco offers outdoor dining, private patios for relaxing, Wi-Fi indoors and out, comfortable beds, gardens filled with flowering plants and fruit trees, and a shared communal in-ground pool with palapa. The house is also adjoined by 'La Casita del Barco' VRBO #170310 a very private casita that can also be rented for larger groups.

Available for the first time ever as a vacation destination, this house has been a private family home until two years ago and has all the appointments of a house that has been lived in and loved.

Adele Hammond, artist, and founder of Abrazo Style (a fashion accessories company that works directly with indigenous artisans in Oaxaca and Chiapas, MX), lived in Oaxaca for five years with her husband, John, and daughter, Siena.

Adele Hammond purchased this villa in 2006

We love Oaxaca, its culture, its climate, its art and living in a small village on the shoulders of the local mountains.

What we love most about our place is that while other people are caught in traffic and fighting the congestion of the city, we are watching the sunset at the pool with a glass of wine, listening to the birds after having spent a lovely day in town.

PERFECT STAY

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was great. The house and surrounds were very comfortable, sensuous and endlessly interesting. Adele has a great sense of decor and a lovely collection of local crafts in the house and a warm sense of local country decor. Facilities are convenient and functional and the manager and local people exceedingly helpful and welcoming into their community. San Pablo Etla in my opinion was close enough to Oaxaca to be convenient but out in the country on the edge of town. The house has a nice view of the valley below. The climate was ideal - a bit hot late in the day it cooled right off early evening. Great pool, Not having been to Oaxaca before, the area made a deep impression on us for its rich traditions in the arts, crafts, culinary, and historic interest, and not least the people we met were great. Feel like it would be an honor to be welcomed back, and look forward to it.
Loved the Ruins, The mountain pine forests, Market in Tlocolula, Birdwatching with Bill, Shopping for crafts, and our guide/driver/companion Sebastian.

GREAT PLACE! EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS.

  • 5 of 5
Our group of eight rented both the main house and casita at El Barco to celebrate my 50th birthday and dia de los muertos. The place is magical! It is beautiful, charming, comfortable and nicely located beyond the urban reaches of downtown Oaxaca. Property manager Florencio was attentive and helpful in getting us settled-in and his wife, Sarai, prepared three delicious meals for us during our stay. Initially we were concerned about transportation since El Barco is a few miles from Oaxaca. We opted not to rent a vehicle and have no regrets with that decision. We enlisted the services of Sebastian to shuttle our group all over the area and act as our de facto tour guide. We can't say enough good things about Sebastian! He bent over backwards for us and made our visit truly unforgettable! My only hesitation in writing this very positive review is that it may make it more difficult to book El Barco again in the future! Great place and wonderful people! Thank you!

BEAUTIFUL, RELAXING AND WELCOMING HOME

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four absolutely loved our stay at this home. It is such a sweet place with something beautiful everywhere you look. The beds were super comfy - my 6 year old has never slept better! We enjoyed the gorgeous pool, meals on the back patio surrounded by lush plants and beautiful views, and hikes on nearby trails (meeting friendly neighbors collecting firewood with their donkeys along the way). The owner, Adele, was super helpful in recommending nearby activities for the kids (they enjoyed a week of horseback riding camp). The manager, Florencio, was very welcoming. We look forward to returning!

A HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Staying here at 'Casa El Barco' was absolutely lovely!
I traveled with my sister and mom and the three of us had a 4-day getaway in Oaxaca over Thanksgiving. The house had everything to make it a relaxing, creative, colorful and inspiring experience fully set in a Oaxacena traditional scene: artwork, crafts, furnishings, sculpture, kitchen pottery, fireplace, books books books, outdoor patio with lush gardens, a tree house, swimming pool, an area where locals meet one evening for guitar and singing and chilling with mezcal, and very courteous and enjoyable drivers who were informative guides to Monte Alban and nearby markets. Even the bathrooms were elegantly decorated and pleasant to be in! It's dangerous to come to a house so lovely and well-equipped up in the mountains of Oaxaca, it might make you not want to leave (I read a book from their bookshelf, Oliver Sacks' Oaxaca Journal cover to cover in one sitting on the sofa, and would love to return for a longer visit with a large group of friends to enjoy the pool in a warmer season!)

GREAT TIME! BEAUTIFUL HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
I am from mexico and traveled from NY to Oaxaca to celebrate Day of the Dead. We were so happy to connect with Adele and to find this warm and beautiful house were we could cook and relax as well as drive down to the city. The views are beautiful and nights are peaceful. The grounds are extremely well taken care of and full of native flowers, lemon trees and rain gardens. Because of the changing weather of Oaxaca at this time of year we used the fireplace as well as the pool so it was great that the house was equipped for both cold and warm weather.

One of the best part was the separate guest house were I was able to stay with my husband away from the other guests, so it provided us with some privacy, while allowing us to share the common spaces of the house.

I highly recommend it!
