In and around the house: Casa Union is a new, light and clean house surrounded by a big garden of +600 square meters / 6500 square feet. It is situated in the nicest part of Oaxaca, San Felipe del Agua. Both, the house and our garden look out over the valley and mountains.

A ping pong table provides an opportunity for some physical activity and peaceful competition.

The view of the house and garden are oriented towards the valley.

The region: The state of Oaxaca has peaks almost 10,000 feet (more than 3,000 meters) high, caverns among the deepest in the world, virgin beaches, hidden jungles, and luminous valleys that house populations where, as a crucible, cultures of all people who once lived in its midst come together.

The City

Oaxaca, the State Capital, declared Humanity’s Cultural Patrimony by UNESCO, owes its fame to the beauty and harmony of its architecture, the richness of its cultural traditions, the wide variety of its typical foods, and its soft temperate climate, spring-like throughout the year.

San Felipe de Agua

San Felipe del Agua, where Casa Union is situated, used to be an independent little village just outside of the city of Oaxaca. Nowadays, San Felipe is a beautiful quiet, residential area. Casa Union is 7 minutes walking from the village’s church, built around 1650, next to the main square.

average rating of 4.8 based on 10 reviews

Good house, terrific terrace in large garden.

  • 5 of 5

If you want a taste of the real Mexican life in a village, while being still near the delights the city of Oaxaca has to offer, this is the place! The house is big and clean, Customer service was excellent; quick and very kind. We would recommend this house to anyone; we felt safe at all times. The terrace is fantastic, with view of the mountains, starry nights and beautiful sunrise. Hope to come back soon, it's all there: hospitable and helpful Mexicans, many museums, markets and churches and delicious food .

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in this comfortable and spacious house.

It has everything a family could need to really feel at home. The help we received from Blanca and Mauro was always prompt and friendly.

The views are wonderful; sunrise and moonrise like I had never seen before. The terrace is a great place for breakfast and some wine at night.

Coming from the city to spend the holiday, we really welcomed the country noises that woke us up in the morning: donkeys, roosters and dogs!

We will sure come back.

Decent Place to Stay In Oaxaca

  • 4 of 5

Casa Union is a good option in Oaxaca if you need space for a large party and have your own transportation to the center of town.

On the positive side, the house is quite spacious and well-equipped and has a large yard with a view. On the negative side, the house and yard needed cleaning and maintenance when we arrived. Although these were eventually provided by the efficient staff, we would have appreciated arriving at a cleaner property. Also, certain neighbors played loud music all day long during our stay, which made it hard to enjoy the yard.

Fleeing the worst winter ever in northern New England three months at Casa Union in Oaxaca was a total delight!

Weather – not a drop of rain ( or snow!); cool evenings ; warm days; deep blue skies with bright sun ( but never humid.) Neatly tucked away in San Felipe del Agua two blocks from the three times a week market by the church – great veggies, fruit, tamales and tortillas. The house is comfortable and readily accommodated visiting family and friends. The neighbors, gardener, housemaid and “administrator couldn’t have been more pleasant and helpful. No traffic noise …but the “symphony” of burros, gallos, perros gatos y cabras echoing around the valley made it special. Enjoyed breakfast on the terrace with a great view as the sun rose over the mountains…and the stars in the evening sky.

Close and easily accessible by public transport to historic and fascinating downtown Oaxaca (Centro)...where we enjoyed the cultural, culinary and friendliness of the people. In sum a great place to stay in a delightful location.

A perfect vacation site

  • 4 of 5

Our experience at Casa Unión was one of a kind. Situated in a valley, with a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains, against a deep blue sky, transparent air and once in a while heavy clouds gathering on the top of the hills announcing an incredible thunderstorm. What a sight! Those shades of green, then red covering the slopes like a tapestry are still in my mind. This was the view every morning from our master suite. The zooming sound of crickets and fireflies every evening put me in a mix of excitement and peace finally giving way to a sleepy mood.

We were staying at this room, with a big king-size bed, private bathroom, and enough space to relax in privacy. The other two bedrooms with bathroom at the upper floor are also nice and comfortable. My children stayed in one of the bedrooms, my mom and niece in the other one. The other bedroom downstairs, also with a private bathroom was shared by my sister and brother –in-law. The nice living room and eating room are practical and spacious with a table in which the 8 of us had breakfast every morning. The kitchen is also big enough to have us all busy preparing something delicious there.

But perhaps one of the most beautiful experiences was having breakfast at the front outside terrace overlooking those green hills. It makes your heart expand at all that beauty.

Then just a 5 minute walk from Casa Unión you are in downtown San Felipe del Agua, with its beautiful church, cobbled stoned streets, a small yet well supplied supermarket. Then further up the hill, a beautiful hotel –hacienda Los Laureles, with neat gardens and wild vegetation. Also small bars and fusion cuisine are to be found everywhere in San Felipe del Agua. And last but not least, just a 10 minute bus ride from San Felipe brings you to downtown Oaxaca, with its lively night life and its fancy cafés, plazas and terraces. Everywhere music and cultural expressions of our ancestral Mexico.

This, my friends, was an experience of a lifetime, it was deep and intense for me because it made me be proud of my roots, of this beautiful country that Mexico is.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts that you let us share your beautiful house.

Fantastic House in Oaxaca

  • 5 of 5

We rented Casa Union for a year in 2009-2010. The location in San Felipe del Agua is great. The house itself is modern and very comfortable. The yard is a real treat, and you are unlikely to find another this big in Oaxaca. We would definitely stay here again.
