Oaxaca villa description

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.
Twice-weekly gardener and housekeeper
Wireless Broadband access and wired hook-ups for laptops, cable HDTV, CD-Ipod player


Amenities & Activities: Large kitchen with refrigerator, stove, coffee-maker, blender, toaster, and microwave, outdoor dining areas with lovely mountain views of the Sierra de Juarez
Sky TV by satellite, with more than 50 channels, CD, DVD player, broadband Internet access through wireless and wired hookups for laptops.
AT&T long distance telephone service, the least expensive in Mexico, with itemized electronic billing (deposit of US$100.00 requested).
Washing machine and outside clothesline.

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.

Swimming resorts are only a few minutes away in neighboring San Sebastian, Etla Horseback-riding lessons are available nearby as well.
