Beautiful home with folk art tastefully displayed wherever you look - terraces, gardens, views
"My adult daughter and I stayed at Cathey's home for 3 wonderful art-filled weeks. The pictures do not begin to capture the experience of seeing the house for the first time (or every time)! We couldn't believe the house when we first saw it - it is spectacular - very tasteful art displayed everywhere, and like others have written, the home exceeded our expectations. We stayed on the 2nd level with a lot of open space, a huge kitchen, 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. My daughter delighted in taking her siesta everyday on the hammock on our terrace. We each delighted in discovering new art pieces to look at every day. Alejandro and Judith, the house caretakers, made us feel as members of their family - they guided us to whatever resource we asked about - homemade tamales, a seamstress, markets, transportation to and from the airport,etc. The house was perfect for entertaining our new-found friends with the terrace and the 3rd level cactus garden terrace with incredible views from all sides. Everyone who visited had the same reaction --- WOW! INCREDIBLE HOUSE! It is, as mentioned by others, not in the heart of Oaxaca, but at pleasant 20 or so minute walk from the center. We can't imagine staying anywhere else in Oaxaca!"

"We three sisters stayed here for one month. The rooms, baths, and living areas are spacious and comfortable. The pool is convenient with beautiful design and views. Oaxaca can be accessed by public transportation, taxi, or car rental in 20-30 minutes. The village life is a welcome contrast to the noise and stimulation of the big city. Walking, hiking and enjoying the beautiful outdoors is a daily must. American neighbors are friendly and helpful, as are the native staff. We plan to return annually!"

"We stayed at Casa Barrio for 10 days. Its in a very good location and walking distance to everything in town. Markets or small groceries all nearby. Tv -wifi-5 gallon jug of water provided. Ricardo the owner was very nice and really helped us out when we had questions. Big kitchen and refrigerator. Water heater for the 2 showers and a hairdryer. A very clean abode. We loved Oaxaca -our first trip there."

"The casita is a tasteful, comfortable space that served us very well. The open living room has an exquisite fireplace in the corner that, on the chill evenings, was a delight to dine beside and enjoy a quiet, romantic evening. The kitchen is "muy Mexicano", user friendly and fully equipped. A small but complete bathroom lies off the kitchen, filled with thoughtful touches of art and function. The bedroom (s) are comfortable and clean. We chose to occupy the "optional" extra bedroom with it's lovely view out over the valley and were able to hear owls at night and lovely song birds and doves during the day. The grounds of the complex are beautifully maintained and designed. The small community consists of 3 major dwellings along the ridge, with extensive views out over the valley. The swimming pool is shared and also of tasteful design. We were able to access the laundry room beside the casita, which was very useful indeed. Finally, we found the owner and managers to be friendly, supportive and highly responsive to any needs or cares that came up for us. Highly recommended."
