Casa Patio Jardin is a 250 year old house (thick adobe walls and towering ceilings!) with four apartments around a central garden patio with sparkling fountain. Nestled in the back of the house, the one-bedroom Tule apartment is private, quiet, cozy, and offers an ideal refuge after a busy day of sightseeing or working in ever bustling Oaxaca. The one-bedroom Tule apartment is tastefully decorated, showcasing crafts and paintings by local artists.
The 570 sq.ft. Tule also has an additional nearly 200 sq.ft. semi-private patio adjoining the larger central garden patio. There is a private bathroom, the bedroom has a queen-sized bed, the kitchenette is furnished with refrigerator, oven/stove, microwave, and a generous assortment of pots, pans, glasses, etc.
Included in the price are the usual utilities, hi-speed internet, sheets and towels, and a weekly cleaning.
Casa Patio Jardin is less than four blocks from the Zócalo, and within a five or ten minute walk to the great majority of churches, museums, galleries, shops, mercados, cafes, and restaurants of special interest to visitors. There is also a large grocery store a few minutes walk from the house, and the huge, sprawling Abastos Mercado is a twenty minute walk.
We are twenty minutes by taxi to the airport, and about the same or less to the long distance ADO bus station.
Living on-site managers are native English and Spanish speakers.
So if you have only a week or month or two in Oaxaca, consider the advantages of an apartment in a colonial era house in the heart of the historical district: old Mexico ambiance and excellent location close to nearly everything of prime interest!

I've stayed here several times and love everything about it. The managers make things easy and they are helpful, but you have privacy and quiet. The kitchen has everything you need, except food that you can get at the market just 2 blocks away! It's also very close to the Zocalo and all the great restaurants and museums in the city. The apartment itself has a wonderful shared central courtyard full of plants. It makes the air cooler and cleaner and you feel it immediately when you enter the grand door from the street. I notice another reviewer thought the bathroom location was not ideal, but I like it, and to me it is still part of the apartment, since the whole area is private. I really would recommend this for almost any kind of tourist or someone living in the city.
Stayed two weeks. Photos do not do justice - apt. is very spacious with 15 ft. barrel tile ceilings. Furniture is very comfortable and well thought out - lots of storage, tables and great art. Patio has equipale chairs, not the small metal ones shown in photo. Interior very clean - only animal seen was the friendly cat, Marta. Manager, Kell, was most helpful - I especially appreciated being invited to join him and his wife for traditional chocolate and Pan de Muertos on 11/1. Location is an easy, flat, 4 blocks from the Zocalo and right next door to the Basilica and their wonderful ice creams. Even though located on busy Independencia, apt. was very quiet - located on back side of building plus those 3 ft. thick walls. Only disadvantage is that the private bathroom is located adjacent, but not inside, the apartment.
