About the property

Modern 4BR 4BA Country Villa lovelyviews & gardens, easy access to attractions

Casa Colibrí (Hummingbird House), our beloved second home, is a spacious house with excellent modern furnishings and traditional Mexican decor and artwork only 20 to 30 minutes outside of downtown Oaxaca. Built of adobe, indoor temperature is always comfortable. It is nestled in a mountainous valley an easy drive to downtown but light years away from the bustle and noise of the city. Each morning, walk up the foothills of Benito Juarez National Park or sit on the terrace and watch the spectacular, ever-changing views of the mountains and the valley. An ideal place to rest and recharge your batteries after busy days touring all the wonders that Oaxaca has to offer. You will need a car unless you are skilled at taking moto-taxis and regular taxis or buses into town.

The rental prices include all the following features and amenities:

Four well-appointed bedrooms and four tile baths,

Upper and lower living rooms, with two small fireplaces.

Spacious newly-remodeled well-equipped kitchen

Dining room that seats 8 at hand-crafted solid wood table.

Oaxaca has most everything. Our area is famous for birding, hiking, mountain biking, native markets and archaeological sites (such as Monte Alban and a recently-opened dig in Atzompa), craft villages and events in the city of Oaxaca.

Casa Colibri

  • 5 of 5

Casa Colibri is a wonderful Oaxacan retreat. It is very comfortable and has wonderful, relaxing views from the back of the house. Both my wife and I spend a lot of time writing, reading, and walking and for people like us the house is ideal. Also, it is just a short drive (or bus or cab ride) to food stores, Oaxaca’s famous restaurants, and activities at the Zocalo. Another attraction is that the neighbors are mostly English-speakers with very interesting backgrounds and willing to go out of their way to make one feel welcome.

We have stayed at Casa Colibri for extended periods during the last three years and plan to return this year. We walk our talk.

Beautiful home with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Casa Colibry was Great!

The owners did a great job at describing the house as well as its surroundings. The house was kept very clean and neat and found that it had everything necessary for vacationing (well equipped kitchen, comfortable living room and a lot of sleeping space).

Whenever friends mention that they are going to Mexico I always rave about Oaxaca and tell them that Casa Colibri is a great place to stay in. I like the proximity to the city and really appreciate the fact that it's not in the middle of town; it gives you the options of enjoying a relaxing day without stress as well as the ability to go in to town to enjoy the day and night life which Oaxaca has to offer.

All and all Oaxaca is a great city to vacation in and Casa Colibri is the perfect place to stay!!

Casa Colibrí

  • 5 of 5

The house is great, i went only for one week but i would have been great to stay for a month. The view from the back of the house is beautiful and there's a lot of space to do nothing else than rest and have a good time. But the best is that is 15 min away from downtown Oaxaca, a great city, and very near many archeological sites, most of which are very important in mexican culture.

A place to go back again, and again, and again.

A captivating city, Oaxaca will enchant you with its beautiful folk art, mild weather, gorgeous scenery, and exotic food. Casa Colibri, 15-25 minutes out of the bustling city center, at the edge of Benito Juarez National Park, is the perfect place to relax after a day of visiting markets, villages, nearby ruins or sitting on the zocalo sipping beer or margaritas. Tucked away in a lovely valley, Casa Colibri invites you to lie in the hammock or sit on our porch, enjoying the lush gardens and spectacular views, with butterflies and hummingbirds to delight you. A spacious house with excellent modern furnishings, Casa Colibri is the perfect base from which to enjoy our beloved Oaxaca.
