Property description

With vistas spanning the mountains behind and views of the best sunsets in Oaxaca across the valley below, you will never want to leave this country paradise. Casa El Barco was built years ago to capture the cool breezes and the vistas of the local hills above Oaxaca. Only 20 minutes from downtown Oaxaca, it 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.

Built of adobe and decorated in a rustic Mexican style with crafts from all over the state of Oaxaca, the house features modern facilities with an old world charm. El Barco offers outdoor dining, private patios for relaxing, Wi-Fi indoors and out, comfortable beds, gardens filled with flowering plants and fruit trees, and a shared communal in-ground pool with palapa. The house is also adjoined by 'La Casita del Barco' VRBO #170310 a very private casita that can also be rented for larger groups.

Available for the first time ever as a vacation destination, this house has been a private family home until two years ago and has all the appointments of a house that has been lived in and loved.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: Adele Hammond, artist, and founder of Abrazo Style (a fashion accessories company that works directly with indigenous artisans in Oaxaca and Chiapas, MX), lived in Oaxaca for five years with her husband, John, and daughter, Siena.

Why Oaxaca:
We love Oaxaca, its culture, its climate, its art and living in a small village on the shoulders of the local mountains.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
What we love most about our place is that while other people are caught in traffic and fighting the congestion of the city, we are watching the sunset at the pool with a glass of wine, listening to the birds after having spent a lovely day in town.
