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


Oaxaca is the cradle of art and culture of Mexico.

Wonderful Stay in Oaxaca

  • 5 of 5

Dear Nicolas,

Our stay in Oaxaca and your home was wonderful and served as a great gathering point for our family. The entire experience was what we were looking for and your home was a great launching pad for excursions both in and out of town.

The house and gardens were exactly as advertised. Clean and well appointed as well as centrally located for many walks to churches, museums, markets, restaurants and nightly music venues. Rafael, Sylvia and Minerva provided an excellent level of service and Rafael’s advice on trips and travel was much appreciated. Juan Manuel’s driving was excellent, safe and his advice and company were also appreciated. Morning coffee in the garden followed by a Mexican breakfast was a nice way to begin each day.

Our trips out of town to Hierve del Agua (swimming), Monte Albán, El Árbol de Tule, Mitla, Yagul, Los Pueblos Mancomunados (zip line), and tours to weaving, pottery and a mescal distillery were also great fun and very educational.

I have to say that Oaxaca doesn’t usually come up as a top destination in Mexico. However, from my viewpoint, Oaxaca was a great location and easy to get to. Not overly touristy and the Mexican hospitality was exceptional wherever we went.

Thanks again Nicolas for providing such an incredible venue and service for what turned out to be a very memorable and enjoyable experience.

Wonderful house and staff!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfectly located well within walking distance to everything you want to see and experience in Oaxaca. And, I thought the house looked nice in the photos but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived that the house was even better in person! Great art, awesome layout and architecture. The staff is great as well!

This is my second time renting the amazing house in the middle of Oaxaca historic center. The house is stunning it has everything you need and the decor is just perfect. The house includes great team that put together an amazing breakfast and experience. Sometimes you just dont want to leave and enjoy the house and the landscape.

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.

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...
