Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Karen and Tami live and work in Brooklyn, NY and spend as much time as possible (when not working) in Oaxaca. Tami is a documentary filmmaker and professor of film and media studies and Karen sells real estate.

Why the Owner Chose Universidad, Oax., Mexico:
We bought El Huajal in 2005 after spending 4 weeks vacationing in Oaxaca. We had both always loved Mexico and fell in love with the area -- the mountains, the many artisan pueblos, the warmth of the community. Some friends told us about the house and after going to see it we knew we wanted to own it and build a life there.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is so much that we love about El Huajal -- the bright, airy, open feeling of the house, the expansive back yard, the cactus gardens, the sounds of the neighborhood goats and chickens, the wonderful community of North Americans living in the area and the warmth of the Mexican culture.
