About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

Everyone loves our rental house next door, hence our 5 star rating! Check our pricing with us as we sometimes will match others prices if not too far off of ours.

The house we offer is very spacious and combines the best of modern and traditional design We had it designed and built in 2005 for our own relatives and eventually rented it out once they moved elsewhere. The house has a modern kitchen with a new stove, big fridge, with a washing machine just outside on the terrace where clothes can be hung to dry an enormous inviting lounge with beamed ceiling both of these rooms leading on to a spacious roofed terrace with a grill leading on to a garden.

We have 5 start ratings on this rental which everyone loves. They also tell us that our photos do not do justice to the beauty, light and space of the house There is access to a great solar heated pool . Although the North of Mexico suffers from insecurity, this area of Mexico is particularly tranquil.

The house we offer is very spacious and combines the best of modern and traditional design.The house has a modern kitchen with a new stove, big fridge, with a washing machine just outside on the terrace where clothes can be hung to dry an enormous inviting lounge with beamed ceiling both of these rooms leading on to a spacious roofed terrace with a grill leading on to a garden.

There are two lovely bedrooms, one double upstairs with a study area and its own covered balcony and ensuite bathroom, another twin room with a trundle bed accommodating three downstairs . There is a double futon in the very spacious sitting dining room area for extra guests. 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 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. 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.

Oaxaca is a popular spot for both foreigners and Mexicans due to the year-long wonderful climate and the exceptional scenery including cactus lined valleys and glorious mountains. There are fascinating cultural buildings and artisanal markets; also including museums, restaurants, various exciting specialist markets, and experiencing nature e.g., hiking in spectacular parks and ecologically important forests, etc.

Economic weekly cleaning is $US20 for one day per week which you pay directly to our cleaner, and you can arranged to have delicious Mexican food cooked at your house so you can gather some recipes, baby sitting can also be arranged at very reasonable rates. We also can recommend wonderful day tours to the local area.

Prices are for up to 4 people, for extra people the cost is $25 per person per night.

We are a British/Mexican couple who have lived in San Felipe for 15 years and are a convenient source of local knowledge. We have two wonderful, bi-lingual, daughters who can baby sit.

We welcome short and long term visitors and we have had people stay from a weekend to a year or more. The house is great for all ages and those who like to paint/write/relax or immerse their children in 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are a British/Mexican couple who have lived in Oaxaca since 1998. We are very friendly, helpful, respect hosts and would love to have you stay at our wonderful house.

Why the Owner Chose San Carlos, Oaxaca, Oax., Mexico:
We built the property ourselves next door. We already had built our own house a few years before and had chosen to live in Oaxaca because of the combination of proximity to the center but away from traffic and congestion with its spectacular views and the opportunity to live in a town where we could be part of the community. It is also cooler in the summer time with fresh evenings and mornings.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The property itself is very charming and spacious. It is comfortable and has a wonderful terrace which, in Oaxaca, can be enjoyed all year round as the weather is a real plus. Everyone, without fail, has loved the house and the neighbourhood where we live. San Felipe is the best residential neighborhood in Oaxaca given that it is mountainous and cool with spectacular views but also close to the historic centre so one doesn't need a car when renting our property. People have benefited from our experience as foreigner/locals who have lived in Oaxaca over a decade; we can act as a bridge into the culture and the best of Oaxaca. We know that there has been bad press about Mexico lately, even in the Triki area in Oaxaca which has had conflict for over 4 decades but Oaxaca City is a haven, Really, I would not be living in a place that could present a threat to my children in any way whatsoever. So please inquire with us about anything you may feel nervous about and we will update you.
