Oaxaca house description

Welcome to the Wooden Box!

We are offering our modern 85 sqm. house, our second home, which we designed and built in 2013. The house is secluded, located on the mountainside and has spectacular views and scenery on all sides. The surroundings are very quiet and peaceful and create a private haven for its visitors.

- 35 km (35 min drive) from Oaxaca city airport.
- 25 min drive or taxi ride to downtown Oaxaca.

The house has a bright, open living area with large windows and a roof terrace overlooking the spectacular mountain scenery.

- Loft with two beds, sleeps 4 (double bed, queen size bed).
- One bathroom with a shower.
- Fully equipped open kitchen.
- Large roof terrace and garden for outdoor enjoyment.
- Scandinavian influenced architecture with mexican decor.
- Wifi
- Powered 100% by solar energy
- Small guest house with additional bed for 2 available for a low price
- We provide linen & towels
- Housekeeping included for guests that stay for a week

Our home is located 850m from the Centro de Artes San Agustín, a cultural center with a calendar full of exhibitions and concerts. Also within walking distance is a great water park with warm pool and swimming areas. Nine hole golf course located at 3kms from the property. Great hiking opportunities in the surroundings.

We believe our house is excellent to enjoy an authentic small Mexican village experience, including a daily local morning announcement service (happenings, sales, local news such as weddings), which some find amusing and part of the charm.

All in all a peaceful and secluded place to stay all year around and an ideal workplace for artists and authors. We are looking forward to welcoming you to our house, your home-away-from-home. The house is family friendly and we even have a baby chair and toys available.

**Yoga sessions on our roof terrace available upon request at an additional cost**

It is very convenient to have a car, however we are only a 2 minute walk from the colectivos (communal taxis), which will take you in to Oaxaca for 12 pesos.

For guests who want to stay in Oaxaca city or one of Oaxaca's beautiful beaches at the beginning or at the end of their trip we can recommend good hosts and a cozy house located close to the center.

Special prices for longer term rentals are available, please ask!

          San Agustín Etla is the home of the Centro de las Artes San Agustín Etla, also known as CaSa. The town hosts a lively Day of the Dead celebration each year on November 1.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: I am a 34 year old mexican photographer living in Sweden, travelling together with my swedish girlfriend and our two year old daughter. We love vacation rentals and think they are one of the best ways to get to know a destination!

          Why the Owner Chose Oaxaca:
          We built this house because we immediately fell in love with the place. San Agustín Etla and it's surroundings are just magical. This is our dream home, which we designed and built to relax.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The house is located in the middle of the town, yet secluded, which will give you all the commodities of being close to transportation and goods, and all the privacy needed to relax and just escape from everything.
