About Nicolas

Myself, simply a lover of Oaxaca. My parents built this gorgeous house 10 years ago and it has given our family some of the happiest moments I can remember. Every corner of the house has something special with a story behind it. The house is truly unique and, within the setting of historic Oaxaca, I must say it is one of the most fascinating and special spots you will ever find. I can guarantee that.

Nicolas purchased this house in 2001

Why Nicolas chose Oaxaca

Oaxaca is the cradle of art and culture of Mexico.

It isn't often that reality surpasses expectation

  • 5 of 5

but that certainly is the case with Casa Cachito! Do not hesitate booking this beautiful property because I guarantee you will be thrilled with it. From the surroundings to the architecture to the furnishing but most of all to the staff this home is perfection! Raphael, Sylvia and Minerva will take fine care of you as will Nicolas, the home's owner. I only wish every Home Away rental came with a staff as good as this! A real bonus is having Nicolas and his staff offer recommendations AND make reservations for activities, transportation and restaurants. And every recommendation was perfect! I hope to visit again soon and stay longer.

Gorgeous and spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is gorgeous. And enormous - there are 2 master bedrooms plus 2 additional large bedrooms, PLUS office, PLUS TV room / den. All the rooms are quite large. The outdoor space is beautiful - providing a peaceful place to relax when not touring Oaxaca. It is a 5 minute walk to Santo Domingo - very very convenient. The staff felt like family after 4 days. Really lovely place and people.

High-Design Oasis in Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband had a big birthday this year, and we celebrated by coming to Oaxaca with two other couples. We couldn't have been happier with the house.

First, it's an architectural gem, and the interior decor seamlessly blends contemporary furniture with traditional Oaxacan crafts. There is plenty of indoor and outdoor space for relaxing together as a group, or for finding a private corner to read a book.

Second, the staff is amazingly welcoming and accommodating. Raphael, the butler, anticipated our needs and helped us make and change reservations for restaurants and tours. Sylvia and Minerva made sure we were well fed at breakfast and that the rooms were spotless.

The house is also in a wonderful location, within easy walking distance of the city center, but not so close that you get the noise and crowds.

We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Car: not necessary

Oaxaca is the most fascinating city in all of Mexico, with magic and history in every corner. Discover the real essence of Mexico through Oaxaca's culture, traditions, art, food, museums… and the list goes on and on…. Archaeological sites of Monte Alban, Mitla and other are ideal day trips, along with the most beautiful towns around the valley.

Convent of Santo Domingo is a must see, along with its botanical garden and Museum. The newly renovated San Pablo Temple is also breathtaking. Of course, the Museum of Contemporary Arts, along with the Tamayo Museum and the Cathedral are all fabulous. There is not enough space for me to write all the wonders you must visit in Oaxaca...
