Wake to the sound of birds and the trickle of a fountain in this adorable casita just 20 minutes from downtown Oaxaca. Nestled on the shoulders of the Sierra Norte above the valley of Oaxaca, this 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. The casita is accessible by public transportation. A car is recommended but by no means mandatory.
Decorated in a rustic Mexican style, the casita features the best of the indoor/outdoor style of living with a sheltered outdoor living room, private terrace and gardens with loads of comfortable places to relax. This area is known for its diversity of birds and hiking as well as mountain biking. We also offer a shared in-ground swimming pool with some of the best sunsets in Oaxaca.
