  • Paradise...really

    "Our group of eight adults from two families had a fantastic week at Villa Lumina in early Jan. The house can accommodate many more... up to 14 people with couples using the double beds...but was perfect for our group, with plenty of space for everyone to lounge, read, and enjoy the pool and fantastic views out across the beach. Coming from northern climes we had a hard time believing that the open air living spaces (kitchen, eating and lounging areas) would be truly comfortable, especially at night in January, but we spent the week in T-shirts and shorts and slept under sheets with no need for blankets. A perfect climate. This video shows the interior: http://youtu.be/hE94u4aeGmk. The house is in a small gated community about 30 mins from the airport and Puerto Escondido itself. Because of that distance, we cooked dinners at home rather than venture out at night. Our week sped by, mostly spent lazing around the pool, wading in the surf and swimming in the pool, planning meals, enjoying sunsets and star-watching at night, all to the relaxing soundtrack of the surf. The house has wi-fi that worked reasonably well, along with a nice little library of paperbacks for those who finished the books they brought from home. Lupe, the caretaker, speaks no English but was very helpful, and Lucia, the housekeeper, was accommodating as well. Because we all love to cook, we chose not to pay the supplement to have a cook for the week. Lupe introduced us to Gloria when we requested a cooking lesson and market guide, and she rode with us to the market for a primer on ingredients and then back at the house whipped up lunch and left us with a ready-to-cook dinner. It feels churlish to note anything short of utter praise after such a relaxing week, but in the spirit of helping others have an even better time we note the following. It would be helpful to have a house book with guidance on where to get groceries, find markets and convenience stores, etc. Visitors should plan to rent a car or book a driver, and should be aware that you will need at least some basic Spanish. This is a lovely area that is experiencing rapid growth, with more likely to come in a couple of years once the highway now under construction reduces travel time from Oaxaca City to Puerto Escondido. In the meantime, tourist services can be pretty basic. But that should not stop you from visiting Villa Lumina. Go now."

  • Cozy and Safe

    "Three of stayed in this rental until July 31st. Property very clean and well maintained. Photos do not do it justice. Extremely bright inside and out and very safe. Location perfect for us. Very peaceful. Loved the smell of jasmine coming in through the open kitchen sliding windows as we washed dishes. Especially loved the floor to ceiling window that lit up at night to showcase beautiful foliage. Barry the owner a wealth of information and the cleaning woman an EXCELLENT cook. I will be recommending this rental to family and friends traveling to Oaxaca. My teenage daughter says she felt and home and had the best vacation ever!"

  • Luxurious Holiday

    "We stayed at Casa De Los Suenos for Christmas week. When we arrived we were immediately amazed at how beautiful the property was. It is exactly as represented by the pictures. The house is open, modern and spacious. The pool is wonderfully designed with many different areas to hang out in, and various depths for all ages. The Palapa is large and accommodating. The Beach is steps away and practically deserted in both directions. The staff is attentive and keeps the place spotless. It is so peaceful and private we seldom wanted to venture out other than to get a meal in town. It was like being at our own 5 star resort. We would definitely return in the future."

  • Beautiful house in Oaxaca

    "Judith and Sergio's house in San Felipe del Agua was such a treat! It is absolutely gorgeous, just the right size for me and my family (husband and 2 young sons, age 6 months and 4 years). It has everything you need, the kitchen is well-stocked, linens, etc. What we loved the most was the backyard/veranda. Every morning, I would roll out my yoga mat and practice in the morning sun. We were there in October, so the weather was never too hot or too cold (although we did have to use the space heater for 2 nights, but it just made it cozier for us to snuggle up on the couch). The house is really well situated, one street over from where the bus to the center would pick up every 10-15 minutes. Coming back from the center, it would drop us off right in front of the road leading up to the house. Judith and Sergio were really sweet and made sure that we had everything we needed while never being intrusive. Definitely consider this house if you are looking for a long-term rental in Oaxaca."
