There are two lovely enormous bedrooms, one double upstairs, one with a study area and en suite bathroom, and its own covered balcony . There is lovely twin room downstairs looking on to the terrace and garden. All beds have mosquito nets which you can decide if you want to use if you come during the hotter months. All windows and doors have screens so some visitors find the nets redundant.
The house is set in stunning surroundings, with views of the mountains from all angles of the house. It is situated in the most desirable residential area of Oaxaca, San Felipe del Agua. The house is set back 40 metres from the charming road (which has little traffic) so it is very peaceful and is only moments from local shops. San Felipe del Agua juxtaposes 5 star hotels and simple abodes and its cobbled-stoned roads are shared by sophisticated cars, cows and donkeys.
The house is surprisingly close to the historic centre, so you will have the best of all worlds! Wake up with a glorious view to the mountains from your bedroom window,, exotic birds in your lush garden and the smell of tortillas, handmade in the ancient way, by a neighboring family, just minutes from your door. They will be happy to provide you with this delicious local food on a daily basis. The house is 2 blocks from the San Felipe del Agua Church and its square which has market days on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, a local lending library and restaurants and many places to eat. There is also a wonderful Spanish school. Instituto del sol a 10 minute walk away. The bus into town (running every day) is less than a 5 minute walk away from the house; and schools, for families with young children, are also within walking distance, so a car is not needed.

We are leaving our small dog Coco and cat Momo at the house who our house keeper will basically look after but it is important to note that they will be there.
We are a British/Mexican couple who have lived in San Felipe for 18 years and are a convenient source of local knowledge. We have two wonderful, bi-lingual, daughters.
We welcome visitors who are prepared to stay at least one month and preferably 3. Visitors come to enjoy the most colorful Mexican culture to learn/improve their Spanish and experience the world in one of the most popular cities in Mexico. Visitors with children will enjoy all the extra curricular activities that Oaxaca has to offer, art classes teaching artisanal craft, dance, horse riding etc. We also have a stair gate and cot for babies.
We know many families who have come to Oaxaca for a year with and without children of various ages who have adapted to school life and learnt Spanish with amazing ease (there are bi-lingual schools though visitors prefer to immerse their children in Spanish speaking schools.
Please be sure not to generalise travel advisories about Mexico. Oaxaca is safe despite problems in other areas of the country.
