Overview

About the property

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

IF YOUR DATES ARE NOT AVAILABLE IN THIS APARTMENT, CHECK THE SISTER UNIT WITH BASICALLY THE IDENTICAL FLOOR PLAN IN THE SAME BUILDING LISTED AS THE STUNNING CITY VIEW APARTMENT VRBO LISTING 1024063 . IT IS ONE FLOOR BELOW THIS APARTMENT.

A beautiful apartment in downtown Oaxaca. You are walking distance to the zocalo (town square). Shops and restaurants are plentiful and varied. You'll be tempted to spend more time than you should sipping margaritas on your city view terrace with the world famous Monte Alban in the background.

The apartment is located in a safe and secure neighborhood at the Northwest edge of the Centro Historico. Museums, art galleries, cathedral, churches and historic landmarks are within easy walking distance.

We try to take care of our guests not only when they are in their beautiful apartment, but also when they are out on the town. We know that any new town can be confusing. To help, we give our guest the use of a local cell phone and contact numbers for those moments when you find yourself on a street corner, wondering which way to go or where a good restaurant is in the area. The local cell phone also eliminates those nasty 7000 dollar a minute roaming charges that were never quite explained correctly by your carrier.

The owner, lives 5 minutes from the apartment and is available to answer your questions about the city or arrange anything from private tours to cooking lessons for his guests. After living almost 14 years in Oaxaca, Anthony has extensive knowledge of the language schools and their programs and would be happy to help with any information you might need to help you decide on the best school for you.

Please call me directly for a quote. My number in Oaxaca is 011 52 951 205 3537 or you may book by clicking the "Book Now" button to pay through VRBO which will add roughly a 10% commission to VRBO.

Come and see us. We think you'll love the place.

Add $25 per day for private cook. Ask for details.

About The Owner

I have been living and building in Oaxaca City for the last 13 years. My wife and 3 children were all born in this magical town. My inlaws have lived in the Oaxaca valley for many generations and dedicate thenselves to the productions of the colchas (hand woven bedspreads) and other hand loomed items. I spend my time building homes and apartment buildings, and when time permits, giving guided tours to my favorite locations.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1999

The condo was beautifully maintained; cleaned twice during our stay. Awesome Views.

The property looks exactly as pictured. A great relaxing home away from home. Also, Anthony arranged for a delicious traditional 4 course Oaxacan dinner. "Super Yummy ".

Great stay. Spacious and comfortable apartment. Helpful English speaking host.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is huge and has gorgeous views. The rooftop is wonderful but even in the living area the windows open so wide it is like you feel like you are outside even when you are inside! Easy walk to town Center, restaurants, shopping,etc. The way back is an uphill climb which can be hot in the afternoon but taxis are easy to find and very inexpensive. Anthony was very accommodating!

Spacious Apartment.

  • 4 of 5

A very spacious apartment, good location at 15-20 min. walk to el centro, quiet, safe, friendly neighbourhood, grocery stores nearby, nice patio area with shade, good kitchen, dogs next door but quiet at night. Prompt and helpful service from Anthony. We always walked to downtown with all streets safe. Some suggestions for improvements: there are no screens to keep mosquitos out and with crack in patio doors we did get bitten at night. There’s no AC, but we managed to keep the rooms cool enough to sleep at night with the help of the working overhead fans. The major negative issue we have is the way the property was advertised. We may have not read the description properly, but we were under the impression that it was one unit and not three in the same building, with the pictures on the website describing the top unit. We had the second floor unit which is not exactly the one pictured on the website. The units are similar but with different features. Nonetheless we enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: ​Thank you for your review. I'm sorry for any mix up regarding which apartment you were renting. There are two identical floor plan units in the building, not three. I think that there was some confusion due to the fact that VRBO switched to a new format and I now have the units listed separately. There had been an explanation about the 2 identical units but I edited it out during the changeover since there is now a separate ad on VRBO which shows the second floor specifically as VRBO #1024063 which is the one you actually rented. If you had mentioned your preference for the other unit I would have moved you because the people in the 3rd floor apartment had originally wanted the second floor. Prior to the new listing, I explained quite clearly about the 2 identical apartments. I must have edited it out right before you booked or you would have known. My apologies. April through September is mosquito season in Oaxaca. We fumigate and put screens in the bedroom windows the first week in April as that's when mosquitoes usually start. I don't leave the screens on all year because they are unnecessary and I don't like the way they look. There are also little anti mosquito devices in the kitchen drawer that can be plugged in for any kind of unseasonal problem that may occur. I take the happiness of my guests very seriously. If you had let me know there was a problem, I would have addressed it immediately. Anthony

Wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

This was truly an amazing home that enriches our Oaxacan experience. Anthony is truly a wonderful host who welcomed us. He was very helpful and available if you had questions.

Casa de Emily has a wonderful cafe a few doors down (Cafe Brujula) and within walking distance to the Zocalo. It was everything we had expected and the photos do not do justice to the great views the rooftop patio has. We hope to return soon and hope Casa de Emily is available.

Loved Casa de Emily!

  • 5 of 5

Another couple and my husband and I loved our stayed at Casa de Emily for the first week in January. The layout of the apartment gave us lots of privacy. We made amazing meals in the well stocked kitchen. The best part was "living" outdoors on the balcony. Tremendous views and sunsets combined with the perfect place (under the covered patio) to have coffee, drinks and meals not to mention a great place to read. Anthony couldn't have been more helpful and responsive.
