Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom

Casa Alta Vista is a beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bathroom adobe house for rent in the hills north of Oaxaca. Located in the San Pablo Etla community, this home offers an experience of traditional Oaxaca combined with the opportunity to see sustainable living practices at work. The home has a fully equipped kitchen with all the amenities. A large shaded porch offers sweeping vistas of the mountains. There is available fruit from an orchard of citrus trees. One can also take advantage of fresh seasonably available organic vegetables from the organic farm next door. There are hiking trails a short walk away in the national forest. Yet, our house is just 20 minutes north of Oaxaca. Guests will appreciate the cool air and quiet atmosphere in the mountains after a day of adventures in town. It is close enough for frequent trips to see the sites with convenient return to the peace of the countryside at the end of your day. A car is helpful but not necessary. Taxi service is available just a phone call away. For the more adventurous, a bus runs on the main highway, about 2 miles down the road into town.

Bedrooms have king size beds or, one can be divided into two twins. Each has a private bathroom with large shower rooms. There is also a loft with daybed. The house has WiFi, washing machine, and dryer. Weekly housekeeping is also provided. Airport transportation and taxi service can be arranged at reasonable rates.

This home was perfect for use. Its located a convenient distance outside of the hustle of Oaxaca in a nice neighborhood. We had a car rental but there are inexpensive taxis everywhere so access is easy. Vivian (owner) and Celina (house manager) both speak English and could not have been more helpful - perfect directions, clear house information, even an English speaking taxi guy contact info. From past experiences in Mexico we were worried about noise. Not a problem at all in this house. Yes, there are roosters that can't wait until dawn to crow and dogs that seem to think its their duty to bark all night but they are far enough from the house and the thick adobe walls completely muffle out any sounds. It was so nice to come back to the house after a hot and busy day to sit on the cool shaded back porch and watch birds and butterfly's visit a beautiful orange flowering tree with an often spectacular sunset in the background. If you are looking for a quiet retreat outside the city but still close enough for easy access this house is perfect. It has all the amenities - nice fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, separate bathrooms, hot showers and the best for use was the back porch - perfect spot for a peaceful romantic dinner. No need for AC. Its cool at night and the adobe construction keeps the house cool during the day. We went to go bird watching and see the sites in and around Oaxaca and the house location worked very well for all that. There is even a nice trail just up the road from house that leads further up into the forested mountains. We loved our stay!
