Recent Oaxaca reviews

  • A quiet retreat right in the city

    "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."

    "When we looked at the pictures on this listing we immediately considered this rental a top priority to pursue. Owners Paul and Paulette take great pride in their "home away from home", and it shows in their impeccable taste in décor, furnishings, household goods and general upkeep. After we booked Casa Milan for six weeks in Feb./March of 2014, Paulette provided us with useful information on sightseeing, tours, beaches, restaurants, shopping, and local customs and "insider" tips for making the most of the Huatulco experience. The views from Casa Milan were spectacular and the sunsets unforgettable. While I truly enjoyed grilling huachinango (red snapper), dorado (mahi mahi), or large shrimp from the local fishmonger, we found our way to many fabulous restaurants in Santa Cruz, La Crucecita, and the Tangolunda bay area. Our favorite beaches were: Bocana for walking, Entrega for snorkeling, and Maguey for people watching. The staff at Sueno Real were friendly, hospitable, and very efficient. For lifetime memories, put Casa Milan at the top of your rental list."

  • Perfect Stay

    "Our stay was great. The house and surrounds were very comfortable, sensuous and endlessly interesting. Adele has a great sense of decor and a lovely collection of local crafts in the house and a warm sense of local country decor. Facilities are convenient and functional and the manager and local people exceedingly helpful and welcoming into their community. San Pablo Etla in my opinion was close enough to Oaxaca to be convenient but out in the country on the edge of town. The house has a nice view of the valley below. The climate was ideal - a bit hot late in the day it cooled right off early evening. Great pool, Not having been to Oaxaca before, the area made a deep impression on us for its rich traditions in the arts, crafts, culinary, and historic interest, and not least the people we met were great. Feel like it would be an honor to be welcomed back, and look forward to it. Loved the Ruins, The mountain pine forests, Market in Tlocolula, Birdwatching with Bill, Shopping for crafts, and our guide/driver/companion Sebastian."

  • Excellent Option in Oaxaca

    "My family and I stayed at this property for one week in April 2014. The house is clean, well-maintained and nicely decorated and the view of the nearby mountains is beautiful. The owners and property manager were very considerate and easy to deal with. We did have a problem with the water supply on the second day, but the property manager came by quickly and got it fixed. The only possible downside I can think of is the distance from the Centro Historico -- about 25-30 minutes by car. This might be inconvenient for a first-time or short-term visitor. For us, though, even this was a plus since we enjoyed being in a semi-rural area with all the sights and sounds of traditional Mexico. In sum, this is an excellent option if you're looking to visit the Oaxaca area."

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. It is easy to rent a boat and go sea fishing or watch dolphins and turtles in the clear waters. A local traditional massage is a wonderful treatment, or try the temazcal vapor bath.

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. Museums, cinemas, restaurants and nightclubs are all available, although speaking Spanish may be helpful in the more local establishments.

How to get to Oaxaca Vacation Houses

Direct flights to Oaxaca International Airport can be booked from Houston, TX and via Mexico City. The main airlines are Continental, Mexicana and Aeromexico Airlines. The airport is located about 25 minutes south of the city and there is a transportation service available for either public or private transport.

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.

The Weather and Climate in Oaxaca

The climate in Oaxaca varies according to the geographic zone. It can be hot and dry along the Pacific coast but at the high mountain elevations, it is much cooler. The capital city of Oaxaca enjoys subtropical weather with temperate winter temperatures, ranging from 16 to 25 C. The rainfall is mainly between June and October and the area has low humidity.
