I was born and raised in Oaxaca almost all my life. My best hobbies are traveling. I enjoy visiting new places, learning new languages, trying new food and getting to know different cultures. My house is a historical jewel of the 18th century cataloged by UNESCO. Which I'm sure you'll fall in love with.

Comfort in Living History

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this Historical Gem, which is like a sweet oasis right in the middle of where you want to be in Oaxaca City! Everything you need is in this lovely home, generationally passed down through the Bailon family. You can feel the love of family within these old walls! It is located in the heart of everything you want to see and do. Moises is a superb host, he was there to greet us and show us around the home, and very quick to reply by email for all other questions we had while there, even arranging a taxi to the airport for us on the day of our departure. While there, we enjoyed a trip to Monte Alban. We did a food and culture tour with Mahsa from "Journey's Beneath the Surface" - highly recommended in the beginning of your trip. Food is amazing in Oaxaca and there are more wonderful restaurants then we had time for, but our top two pics were "Tierra Del Sol" which is right up the same street (be sure to have Sopa Azteca - Tortilla Soup) and also "Pitiona's which is not far from the Cathedral, an easy walk from the house, one you will take often! The suckling pig taco's at Pitiona's are very memorable! This home sits right on the corner of a very busy intersection, ear-plugs are a bonus, but even with traffic noise its very worth the opportunity to to stay here and relax in the courtyard for morning coffee or an afternoon siesta is quite lovely.

Oaxaca memory's are still lingering and we look forward to our return. We will request this home again!

Very central, but extremely noisy!!

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this home for 2 weeks in February. The location is very central and there is a lot of room. Mr. Moises is very conscientious and professional. He went out of his way to make sure that the home was very prepared with the kitchen and bathrooms having a lot of supplies. The home itself is in a very noisy location, being at the corner of 2 very busy streets. Also there is construction directly above and next door, which may go on for many months. Therefore, the noise level is high throughout the day and night. We used earplugs which became tiring after 2 weeks. We would definitely contact Mr. Moises again to see if he had different accommodation.

Traditional House in Central Oaxaca

  • 5 of 5

The house is, indeed, beautiful. It's a calm oasis in the City's historic district. The owner was very accommodating, greeted us, knows Oaxaca in depth, and remained available for contact during our stay. The place is well equipped, comfortable, and well maintained. The location is great. We hope to return.

A Classic Home in a Central Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Casa de la Abuela for three weeks, and I have many good things to say about our time. This is a home that has been in the family for years, and it shows. The furniture is high quality, the kitchen is equipped to be able to cook for large amounts of people, and there is even a garage. The owner, Mr. Moises Bailon, is very professional, concerned about his guest's well being, and gave us a well stocked house. He answers his emails quickly and can help with questions ranging from where to go on the weekends, to where to go out to dinner. The house keeper, Sra. Graciela, is conscientious and kind, and she takes great care in her work. We appreciated her a great deal, and our four year old son loved being around her.

La Casa de la Abuela is equipped with beautiful furnishings, towels, and amenities. There is an office, which I used since I was in Oaxaca on business. This is a colonial style home that has been in the family for years, and it breathes history. The artwork is amazing, there are many plants in the center courtyard, and all the rooms surround that. The space within the walls is enough that our four year old son could run some, play, and to not feel cooped up at all.

The location cannot be beat for convenience to the Historical Center. It is two blocks to the Jardín Etnobotánico, and two more blocks to the walking street, Macedonia Alcalá.

Two things to be aware of which are standard fare in all of Oaxaca. First, the house is on the corner of two busy streets. If you are sensitive to noise, bring ear plugs. We did not use them at all and all of us slept very well. Also, there are mosquitos. This is true in every place I have stayed in Oaxaca. Here, there are multiple fans in every bedroom and also plug in mosquito repellent. We also bought mosquito coils.

There are so many positives to this house that the minor inconveniences should not be an issue. This is a home in excellent conditions in a part of town where very few full size homes still exist.

If we return to Oaxaca, I will definitely be in touch with Mr. Moises Bailon for this home or any other that he may be renting. I have full confidence that anything with his name attached to it will be in excellent conditions.

La Mansion

  • 5 of 5

La Mansion was even better then we imagined! We enjoyed the spacious courtyard, the comfortable beds and a well stocked kitchen.

Our home away from home is in an ideal location, close to Oaxaca center, markets, museums, shops and restaurants.

Moises met us upon our arrival and housekeeping came to mop and freshen our linens.

Our experience in Oaxaca was magical, beginning with our first step into La Mansion.

Thank you Moises for sharing your beautiful home.
