Kids love it at Casa Raab. The animals are always a hit; especially the frequent batch of puppies that are being raised. In addition to the animals (including parrots, burros, cats & dogs), the property itself is wonderful to explore, with many hidden eco-systems. ...morecollapse

Sun,comfort, and quiet setting
Casa Raab lives up to expectations and its description. I had the happy experience of staying in La Casita for 2 months and loved the country setting, the friendly and helpful owners, Tony and Rebecca, and, the friendly neighbourhood. Oaxaca city lives up to its promise in all respects and I look forward to returning. Although taxi transportation is available, a car for longer stays would be an asset.

We had a wonderful time at Casa Raab, both relaxing and having adventures. We went hiking every morning in the beautiful hills, ate the delicious meals provided, relaxed by the refreshing pool when it was hot, and appreciated all the caring details in the spacious rooms, filled with traditional arts and crafts. After the intensity of the city of Oaxaca, it's great to retreat to this quiet country setting. Tony and Rebecca are gracious, knowledgable, and helpful hosts.

Year Purchased: 1965
About the owner: Our family began the Oaxacan adventure when I was 15 years old. I have been coming to, and working in, Oaxaca ever since. I have been in the import-export business with Oaxacan handicrafts much of my life. My wife Rebecca and I now live on the family estate on a full time basis.
Why the Owner Chose Oaxaca:
Casa Raab was begun by my parents in 1965, so for us it is a happy 2nd Generation decision. Generally, though, it is the Climate and Weather! People who settle here from other places are primarily convinced to live here because it is so nice outside most of the time. Houses are designed so that less time is spent indoors, and more out on the patio. Eleven months of the year you don't need interior heating nor cooling...especially when staying in our adobe-walled houses. Of course Culture, Art, Food and Music also have major impacts on most Oaxacan decisions.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Whether it is a large group of friends & family, or just a traveler or two, Casa Raab offers a unique experience of the Oaxacan countryside. This is a true village atmosphere, complete with some primitive adobe dwellings, a town square and small herds of animals on the street occasionally. We are just minutes away from modern Mexican society, but on our property it is quiet, peaceful and beautiful. A certain timeless feeling is in the air. Visiting the city and doing all the "tourist activities" can be demanding, and it is always nice to retreat back to Casa Raab for an evening meal and a quiet night's sleep.
