Personal Highlights; extensive views, amazing sunsets, daily swims in the pool, the resident kitties, deluxe ocean view kitchen, big cozy beds, good water pressure, I feel like I could go on and on, We just wanted to stay forever. The staff at the Jacaranda provided exceptional service, Anna was so sweet and accommodating, Norma's smile was a bright addition to any day! The house was well taken care of and felt very safe. Well worth the money! We are already planning our next visit - Thank you!!"Guest: Tarah B. Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: October 13, 2014View listing
"We had the pleasure of staying in Audrey and Don's condo again this year, even extended our weeks. Thoroughly enjoyed the little changes that Audrey made in the kitchen. This is one of the better condos to stay at in Huatulco - just close enough to everything, but at the same time - just far enough from everything. The description of the condo is very accurate and have recommended it to many people. Looking forward to next year! Thanks again, Audrey and Don."Guest: Susan/Wayne Date of Stay: January 2014 Review Submitted: April 14, 2014View listing
"We stayed for 10 nights in the second floor 'Otono' apartment. It was super clean and nicely furnished. Although we didn't cook any meals the kitchen appeared to be stocked well enough to do so. Drinking water was provided. It has plenty of natural light and big windows to let a nice breeze in, it never felt hot. The bed was very comfortable and the bedroom has a nice size closet. There was plenty of hot water and good water pressure in the shower. The wifi is fast and has a good signal, the router is right outside the front door. The location is perfect. It is directly across the street from the Iglesia Carmen Alto which made it very easy to tell the taxi driver to take you to the church instead of giving a street address. The only down side was when the stool was flushed there was a sewer odor but we told them about it when we left and they were going to call a plumber so I would assume that is no longer a problem. All in all an excellent value for the money."Guest: Mark Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: July 15, 2014View listing
"I've stayed here several times and love everything about it. The managers make things easy and they are helpful, but you have privacy and quiet. The kitchen has everything you need, except food that you can get at the market just 2 blocks away! It's also very close to the Zocalo and all the great restaurants and museums in the city. The apartment itself has a wonderful shared central courtyard full of plants. It makes the air cooler and cleaner and you feel it immediately when you enter the grand door from the street. I notice another reviewer thought the bathroom location was not ideal, but I like it, and to me it is still part of the apartment, since the whole area is private. I really would recommend this for almost any kind of tourist or someone living in the city."Guest: Helene Date of Stay: January 2014 Review Submitted: January 12, 2014View listing
Oaxaca Travel Tips
Staying in Oaxaca Vacation Rentals
Oaxaca is a city and region in southern Mexico. It is a delightfully cultural place to enjoy a vacation. The mountains and valleys in the area are home to a large population of Zapotec and Mixtec Indians and their pretty villages are well known for the beautiful crafts which they produce. The city of Oaxaca is a colonial city of plazas, courtyards and stone-built buildings. The surrounding area is dedicated to growing corn. High in the mountains is the ancient ceremonial center of Monte Alban, similar to the Mayan civilizations found elsewhere in Mexico. The region of Oaxaca also has a beautiful coastline with miles of sandy beaches.
Staying in a Oaxaca vacation rental is a very relaxing and easy way to enjoy a family vacation. A rental home gives more space than a standard hotel room, and a kitchen, cooking facilities and a full-size refrigerator are welcome amenities when catering for a family. Visiting the markets is just one of the local highlights, and it can be a great place to buy fresh fruit and vegetables, fish, tortillas and cheese for a cheap meal. Alternatively, use your rental home as a base and eat out at one of the reasonably priced restaurants nearby.
Condos in Oaxaca can be found within easy walking distance of the superb beaches. Enjoy beautiful views of the coastline or the mountainous backdrop, depending upon where you choose to stay. Vacation rentals can provide a quieter option for those looking for a relaxing vacation away from the bustling beachfront. With a vacation rental, the choice is yours!
Things to do Around Oaxaca
Oaxaca has some fabulous resorts along its coastline offering miles of sandy beaches, swimming and beach watersports including surfing.

Most visitors enjoy exploring the area by car or bus. Tours can be booked to the main sightseeing locations. The area is also pleasant for hiking and cycling, particularly as it enjoys low humidity. Visit one of the many archaeological sites in the area or take a trip to the local craft villages.

Areas to Visit From Oaxaca Condos
The local fishing port of Puerto Escondido is a popular place to visit. It is famous for its surfing, sunbathing and local restaurants.
Chiapas is the central highland area near Oaxaca. It is renowned for the beautiful handicrafts produced by the Indians here. The center of the region is the colonial style town of San Cristobel de las Casas which has narrow cobbled streets and old adobe walls, giving it a very authentic air. A visit to the San Juan Chamula Church is a great place to experience the religious and social practices of this community.
The ruins of the Mayan city at Palenque is a fascinating place to visit. The burial pyramid of King Pacal was only discovered in the 1950s and revealed much of the Mayan culture and history of Palenque and its kings.
