David & I are from Berkeley, CA.,but fell in love with Oaxaca after just one short visit.We were small hotel owners in Guatemala before retiring here.After

building this 2 unit house-renting just seemed the perfect way to share our love of Oaxaca! Now, as we take a getaway, we want to offer you OUR beautiful, comfortable, art filled HOME !! You will get to know Veronica & Judith our wonderful caretakers!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2004

Oaxaca, Mexico offers such a wonderful array of things to explore.As a ceramic artist, I love to visit the local potters,weaving villages & the fabulous prehispanic ruins.Art abounds here & some evenings as many as 3 art openings, make fun social outings. Restaurants here offer delicious, Oaxacan fare, & there are a number of great cooking schools. We feel like Oaxaca chose us!

Our home, is located a short 15 min. walk to the historic center,' the Zocolo ', close to Spanish

schools, churches, & museums. We designed

the house for entertaining, with its open floor plan & well appointed kitchen. The fabulous view from the huge roof garden entices us to relax at days end.The local library offers over 30 thousand books,most in English,plus hundreds of DVDs.Gardening in Oaxaca is a terrific hobby as there are so many easy to grow plants. I'm a handwoven textile collector so I enjoy shopping for 'huipils', as well as wearing them. The country's only textile museum is a delight!

NOT JUST ANOTHER PLACE TO STAY! FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
You can hardly do better than this gem. The "apartment" is beautifully furnished and truly saturated with beautiful art. Every day, we would notice another art piece we hadn't really seen. The furnishings were top notch -- the photo gives a very accurate picture of the living and dining area. The kitchen is equally clean, of good size, and fully supplied with utensils and dishes. [Dishwasher didn't work when were there, which is the only fault we could find.] Water throughout the house is purified and safe to drink. It is about a mile walk down to the Zocalo. Gently uphill from there home again. The walk is safe and pleasant (except for getting across the one busy street -- getting to a crosswalk takes you out of the way). Cathey, the owner, is super nice. She lives downstairs, but we heard absolutely no noise from below. Two sets of sliding doors with screens lets the cool air in. Master bedroom gets warm, but there is a standing fan and if you put that in the doorway to blow the cool air in there is no problem. With our son on a single bed in the small office, and daughter in the 2nd bedroom, we were as comfortable as could be.

GRINGOS IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
I apologize for stealing this book title to describe our stay in Oaxaca, but nothing else seemed more appropriate to capture the essence of our experience in this delightful house. Although we have never been disappointed with a VRBO property, this one went over the top of even our wildest expectations. The photos posted are 100% accurate depicting the tasteful beauty of this home. The house is lusciously furnished with both regional art and comfortable furniture blending the full feel of not only Mexico, but specifically the arts and traditions Oaxaca is so well know for. As you will see in the photos, the kitchen is a ceramic masterpiece with the master bathroom coming in a close second. The tile work throughout the house is impressive to say the least. The art collection makes one feel as though a museum had just moved in while not taking away from the warmth we have come to expect in our own homes. As this wasn't our first trip to Oaxaca, we didn't need to be on the go 24/7. A very enjoyable part of our vacation took place of the terrace of the house where we had a great view of the valley and a dry haven from afternoon thunderstorms. The house is located an easy and safe 20 minute walk from the Zocalo. As we had a fully equipped kitchen, we took full advantage of the market on Porfirio Diaz just a few blocks away. When we did want to catch a taxi to some other part of town, we had to do little more than step out the front door to hail a passing cab and quickly and easily head off to our destination. In Oaxaca central, a taxi ride costs only $40MEX or a little over $3US. It's a safe, easy way to travel around the city. Our host, Cathey, is not only warm and charming, but she can help you with getting around or information on whatever you might need or want to see. Housekeeping comes in once a week. Clean, purified water is provided (a real rarity in Mexico). For a stay of two weeks or more, renting a property like this one allowed us to relax so much more than had we stayed in a downtown hotel. My only regret is that ultimately our trip came to an end and we had to head home. I can only hope that on our next trip to Oaxaca that Cathey's house will be available to us again. I plan on booking early!

NOT YOUR TYPICAL RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
We've rented here for three years and love the owners, the neighborhood, and the house. It has a fully equipped kitchen, and is decorated beautifully with carefully selected Mexican folk art. The terrace and roof deck are adorned with hundreds of potted plants. Having the purified water system is a real bonus. You can easily walk everywhere in Oaxaca.

GREAT HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
Couldn't ask for a better place to stay--perhaps a little further away from the center than most B&B's but a very pleasant and quiet walk right to the Zocalo. The owner, Cathy, is a potter with a great collection of folk art, the views of the town and the valley are wonderful, and the place is equipped with anything you need for a self-catering holiday, very clean and well furnished, etc. The long covered verandah is great for hanging out in the evenings. We would certainly stay there again, and recommend it highly.

EXCELLENT LOCATION, VERY COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
This home away from home had everything we would want - clean, well-cared for, very well-located from our perspective being close enough to the centre of the city but far enough away to be out of the bustle of daily life. We considered ourselves to have been very lucky to have found this accomodation and hope to be able to use it again.
